    Didn't feel inclined to bring the Speciale to the party MHH? I guess two red ones would be a bit boring :-P

    I thought about it but the McLaren is usually my first pick for a long trip. I'll bring the Speciale in May though - in convoy with alvchua.

    I flew home and I'm going back for the McLaren next week. I can't wait!

    Yes, a great outfit. The second oldest Porsche dealer in Australia.

    saw a 650S Spider just like this one (Volcano Red) fanging it down Portrush Road this afternoon.

    The colour looked absolutely brilliant - probably similar to Rosso Mugello - but oh that noise!!

    I would perhaps think twice about that.
    The local authorised repairer had to respray an entire car for the importer when an overhead sign fell on it and damaged one panel.
    It is a totally different process to normal painting (relies on a chemical reaction and changes colour overnight as I recall) so they can't patch repair it properly. Nobody is sure about its fade resistance either long term as the process hasn't been durability tested for long enough.

    Correct. It's a stunning but high maintenance colour. Rosso Mugello is a low maintenance non-metallic isn't it?

    Pretty much correct on Rosso Mugello as it isn't a pearlescent paint even though it has some of the characteristics.
    It can be a little difficult to match because it has a really mean flip to it in different lights.
