I just wanted it. There’s no other rhyme or reason. I have the McLaren F1 because it was pivotal in the very genesis of the hypercar as we know it, I have the XJ220 because it combined massive power with massive elegance and, well, massiveness. I have the F40 and F50 because The Best Of The Best… although none of the more recent ultimate Ferraris particularly pique my interests.
The Carrera GT, though. V10, semi-exposed engine, midship configuration. It’s more like their early ’70s Can Am offerings than any Porsche road car. I guess that’s why I like it. It doesn’t matter anywhere near enough for me to spend £££ on the Autoart model of it, though.
Just as well the Maisto offering is so good.
