Fast forward a few months and I have done it!
That is, I traded my Shelby for a 2014 McLaren MP4-12C Spider. The car has a performance exhaust (catless downpipes and muffler delete) along with an ECU re-tune, putting out 740 rwhp. The car has extensive carbon fiber parts, including wheels, airbrake, engine covers, mirrors, intake vents, and a bunch of other parts, inside and out. It is wicked fast, has a 7 speed dct, twin-turbo 3.8L v-8. It has just under 17k miles, 8-year, 100k warranty.

Warranty starts now.
Nearest Mac dealer is 350 miles away.
If it breaks down, I have a tandem axle trailer I can haul it on.
Did some v-box testing...0-60 in 2.7. 0-100 in 5.9, 1/4 mile 10.1 @ 141, she's wicked fast!!
That was on the street spinning 1st thru 4th.
Glad you got the warranty ... from friends that have owned one, lots of down-time and very expensive warranty repairs .... sometimes months waiting on replacement parts ... :(

Hope you have much better luck with yours..... warranty is a MUST !!!
