What are the odds that Jay Leno (Gordon Murray's biggest fanboy) has not already pre-ordered the car? I would say less than 0%.

Apparently 2/3rds of the cars are already pre-sold.

Finally a real lightweight car! Very nice. All the big players claim to use lightweight materials but in the end the cars almost all the cars are above 1500 kg... Any details known about the tire options available?
