Come on

Come on, details, details. What color are the launch cars (all the same). Have you seen one dealers car or multiple, if so are the all all equiped the same? 18s or 19s? Will you (assuming you are with a dealer) let folks test drive these babies?

Yikes, these shots are not flattering for the Melbourne Red at all.

Great to see one on the lot though!

What do you think of the Jerez Black IRL? The pictures give it a matte purplish hue?

Thanks! Look forward to Saturday then...
Although, considering that it is raining all the time here, the pictures posted are probably very accurate to how it will actually look...

I'm a bit worried about the "purple" sheen.
