BTW, the GT350R has carbon. Fiber. Wheels. Let that sink in.
For those of you who are somehow upset that it has sox cylinders....so does the McLaren and the Grand National. So, blah.
Carbon Fiber Wheels:
At ~$15-16K (see example from the same mfg for a vette here http://www.halltechsystems.com/Carbo...els-p/cr-9.htm
), I expect that you better have some serious locks on your wheels or every hoodlum with a rusted out mustang and the same bolt pattern will be eyeing your rubber.
Apparently, these folks were also involved in developing the wheels for Keonigsegg.
As far as the McLaren is concerned, unless you are talking about some car by that bankrupt domestic tuner ASC McLaren (which may actually be all 5.0s), the McLarens weren't V6s.
Mclaren MP4-12C/650s/P1 = 3.8L TT V8
McLaren F1 = BMW 6.1L V12
McLaren/Mercedes SLR = 5.5 Litre supercharged V8
Hey, I DID find one non-V8 McLaren from the "real" McLaren Automotive. Apparently, there was a collaboration with Ford back in 1980 to make a stupidly expensive Mustang that is considered by some to be the first SVO vehicle.
THAT car was based on a 2.3T inline-4 engine.
For reference, $25K in 1980 dollars is equivalent to $71.8K in 2014 dollars. That's almost GT350R pricing.
