So the embargo lifts tomorrow morning Aussie time.
First cab off the rank is Steve Sutcliffe from Autocar.

I hope he's genuine and honest about it, but I don't like the chances.

If Ferrari's PR people have him by the balls he'll say the La Ferrari is best.
If they don't he'll say the P1 is the best hypercar.

He'll say great things because it will be great but he won't express a decisive preference because that will be another news story - the 3 way comparison - requiring more seat time in all the cars.  Milk it, baby.

These cars are for suckers, for 1/10 the price you can get a used gallardo, put some massive turbos on it, awesome low profile tyres, nitro system, and do a better 1/4 mile :)

Has anyone got the link to the Chris Harris blog which banned him from Ferrari

Most of us forum regulars have heard what Ferrari is like with its PR, but I had no idea it was this bad, assuming he's right of course.

Question is, if Harris is right, why don't all the motoring journalists just boycott Ferrari, or at least call them out?  Because if it's true, doesn't that just damage their credibility?

So, when we used an owner's 430 Scud because Ferrari wouldn't lend us the test car, it was obliterated in a straight line by a GT2 and a Lambo LP 560-4, despite all the "official" road test figures suggesting it was faster than Halley's Comet.

:teehee:
