    Love those pics!! Looking at the new 888 and the vxr together, the var looks sooo much meaner! although for an every day car the choice is simply, the 888 for pure driveablilty and economy

    Apparently that is demo car, with a Miltek exhaust and remap. I think it has the VXR supension kit fitted aswell.

    I know it has the AFL headlights fitted, I cannot confirm the carbon fibre though.

    This one is up for sale unoffically - they are looking for around £20k without engine and gearbox. It is the only one left.

    Yes, thats OK - go ahead. Although you will probably have to download them as they are hosted on a free pic hosting site.
