^^^this...when they where trying to big it up to me I said its just a jcw with a grey paint job and red shit, Tbh the brakes looked good but I'm disappointed too that its got standard jcw bumpers, they did keep saying its a pre production model so who knows stuff may change

And I think that a lot of their Nordschleife-bragging-rights compared to the R53 GP are due to the semi slicks...

I said that too I told them I'm an R53 man and they kept saying this is faster then the last gp, I then explained to them that this ran sticky road/track tyres compared to the last gp run flats and they kind of went a bit errm ermm, but hey it does have a sense of "road presence" about it but could have been made far more aggressive

They should have pushed the whole concept forward. Build it on the Coupe, bump the power to around 250HP, and add all wheel drive. Then you would have a true "special" car. This thing could have been a monster. My 2 cents In it's current form, it's playing too heavily on cosmetics. Maybe they will still surprise us.

Like others have said, I as well like it much more without the stickers. Funny, as the decals on the '53 where one of the more distinguishing features. They seem to work much better on the original.
