22 years old
After growing out of Thomas the Tank Engine at about 5 or 6, I became infatuated with cars instead, with my first "favourite car" being the Ferrari F50. I'm a big fan of other European supercars of the time as well such as the Jaguar XJ220, McLaren F1, Lamborghini Diablo, basically anything you could drive in Need For Speed II! But when I got a Sony PlayStation for my birthday, Gran Turismo took over my life. I am thus also a big fan of '90s Japanese sports cars, and particularly the Nissan GT-R.

I've also been watching TopGear for as long as I can remember (even in the 1990s when it was 30 mins and had most of the people who became Fifth Gear presenters in it!)

It's still surprising, if that really is a SpecV version. That version came with track-spec carbon ceramic brakes reportedly worth £36,000!

"a mid-engine two seater with a carbon fiber monocoque structure" So it'll be just like every McLaren road car ever, then. Good to know.

Nonsense. And how the hell would it have the same 0-60 time as it does now with another 250bhp and instant torque?!

Even though it's a render, there's no way it'll look more than 5% different to this... and I like it.
