Okay thanks.

Just in case anyone wondered about hp, a stock 675LT makes about 680hp (689ps) allowing for 15% losses before wheels.

It is not required field, leave it empty. Fields with red asterisk are required.

@fastestLaps - Should I just use a space instead of MkI then, or leave it blank altogether?

@FastestLaps - It's actually called the MSO HS not 688HS, although the Chassis no. contains '688HS'. It's a limited edition version of the 675LT.

688ps but likely slightly underrated. 40kg lighter (1288kg). 60+% more downforce - 220kg at 150mph.

Delete it for now.

So what's the deal? Is it a shortened LT with slightly more boost or is it boosted 650S?

I bet there is more to it than couple more horsepower and a face-lift.

"Mk I" is not necessary when there is only one distinct generation of car per nameplate. Please read V Models sections 6, 7, 8 and 9. Specifically 7. https://fastestlaps.com/tos

Basically half of ToS is about adding cars and how to name them :D It is a huge problem but I think I got a unique compromise as defined in ToS.
