The improvement seems sweet. Although I wouldn’t really be excited that much for the car as most of the McLaren owners that I know of doesn’t really get off the first or second gear of the car. I doubt if they even reach ¾ of the cars top speed. Anyhow, it is still a good thing to represent your power and money status so I guess the rich people gets one toy again.
