Ian Digman, McLaren’s head of product management, said one of the most insightful things I’ve ever heard anyone say at launch event. “McLaren,” he told journalists gathered for the unveiling of the 600LT Spider and 720 Spider, “sees itself not in a power war, but in a weight war with its competition.”

I live a couple miles from the site (4 Seasons Resort) in north Scottsdale where this press junket was held. Was fun to see swarms of Mac’s running around for 2 1/2 weeks. I’m sure they were as surprised as all of us when one morning they were greeted with 4+ inches of wet snow!!!
I heard they replaced something like 8 windshields due to rock chips, and had a visit from the local police and sheriff due to the “spirited” driving!!
