    Had one from April to October..
    Quite simply an awesome bit of kit, however to me its a 'one-trick' pony.. Fantastic at going, turning, stopping & scaring the crap out of passengers!! I did a 3000 mile Euro run with 5 mates which included an F430 & Lambo LP640 & niether could get close to me (& im a naff driver!)
    I sold it as it lacked soul, was a bit chavvy & attracted unwanted attention..
    I now have an F430 & while its nowhere near as fast as the GTR, it feels special when driving slow, fast or just sat in the garage, something the GTR could never do..

    I so agree with all you said...yet I really would like one...what a great pity, I have yet to read of anything that can match the car for even double the cost.

    I drove one at Prestwold Hall last July - it was 60ish for 4 laps. It was seriously quick ariving at the end of the 1st straight about 20mph faster than the 360 I'd just been in. I was then tempted to get one, I umed and ared about it for a few months. Then my mate took one for a test drive and has ordered one. He said that going at legal speeds feels slow and boring

    I bet he doesn't have it for long.

    I'll stick with the 456 I think, not nearly as quick but much cooler and a joy to drive slowly.
