scrap this car off fl, the results are embarrassing.

ayrton senna is dead and so is the nsx, this new sh*t is based on a civic type r with wide body kit and microwave + toaster to raise the price as much as possible to compete with eu supercars. it did not happen and it failed at that lol.

Don't know why the F12 was slower then but the 488 is quicker for close to twice the money. I'm sure it's just a misunderstanding fella.

honda has been following the footsteps of vw/poor-shush replacing the standard tires with trofeo r tires whenever they hand over their cars for track tests and lap times :))

This is something i find extremely strange...

The only car in the test that is completely new from the ground up starts at $156,940 and surpasses 200 grand with our $46,160 suite of options (about $30K of which makes it go faster), meaning that it’s expensive and powerful and its lap time should be down there with the expensive and powerful cars. The Ferrari-like options include $9,900 carbon-ceramic brakes, a $9,000 carbon exterior package, and $6000 pearl-red paint. The Pirelli P Zero Trofeo Rs, at $1,960, weren’t mentioned in any of the pre-launch publicity and are, like the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s we did know about, a dealer-installed option. Meaning that if you want to replace the standard Continentals with these Pirellis, the dealer will call Tire Rack and order them for you. Hmm.

So....Its a "Dealer" installed option, But not a Manufacture option? So you cant cant it from the actual company?..So how do we handle this one?
