    For comparison. To me, it looks like just an MP4-12c. Not a prototype, other than weird wheels.

    Lol, yeah, you're right. Didn't check the MP4 mirrors and stuff. Still FAIL. Lock thread.

    Dunno, he just posted it up. Just hit the car and careered into the side. One pissed off customer I'd guess looking at the delivery tape stuff.

    Oh dear! I know there is a lightweight wheel option, so could be that.

    That's not a prototype, just what looks like a customer ready MP4 12c. That'll probably explain why the traffic was solid heading down towards Mclaren yesterday.

    Oops.
    Thing that crosses my mind is what happens to the car now?
    Will someone be getting a brand new car that's been binned?
