Steve

4 months old... with 8 k miles ... spot less?


That's 66 miles a day on that. Unless it was driven across country. We need pics... then again pics only do so much.

The world's most powerful roadster. Anyone want to refute that?

V-12 Twin turbo's.

Wonder why they didn't stick with a blower like the SL-55?

I was driving around Porsche's last month and like the GT-3 as it has around 400 HP with a competition exhaust and no turbos. Turbos fry the oil and you needs tons more cooling.

I am not COMPLAINING just curious why anyone these days would want a Turbo?? Blowers come on faster usually and much less heat concerns and need to redesign the car to put air-dams in.

Am I off base on this viewpoint?
