And another glowing review, this time from Autocar.

The only slight negatives were the disappointing sound which I think we have all noticed from the videos and a slightly clunky downshift when in auto mode (I can't imagine it will be driven in auto too often)
Many of the reviewers so far have highlighted the excellent steering feel as a standout. The colour on this review car is not too shabby either

Any V6 is going to struggle to match a v10 or v8 sound. I think he was more disappointed they didnt artificially pipe it in.. but thats a bit gimmicky anyway

This is causing some proper heart vs head thoughts. I expect the MC20 to look fantastic in the flesh and the desire is strong. It’s a good job it doesn’t sound as good as a V8.

I’m sure there are those of us on here whose man maths might lead us down the path of temptation, even if that involves homelessness, kicking the kids out early and/or collection dispersal.

For anyone struggling to quell their desire, I find these numbers are helpful.

Boot space:

MC20 - 150 litres
GranCabrio - 173 litres
3200 GT - 218 litres
GranTurismo - 260 litres
QPV - 450 litres
Ghibli 3 - 500 litres
QP6 - 530 litres

Apologies to those with models whose capacity I couldn’t find. I hope this takes your mind off MC20 European road trip fantasies et al. Don’t forget your toothbrush, but then again you might have to leave your underpants at home to fit it in.

Im not sure I believe that, the boot in a 3200 is massive compared with a GC.

You may well be right. I’ve just found out that the Ferrari Roma has a whopping 450 litres. That’s proper practical. I think that’s 640 bottles of wine?

Another video, but not too dubbed.

Note the self centering wheel centres... very RR (When he talks of the brakes)
