The American version won't get a lot of the stuff such as the seats for example.

They are holding amazing value on the used market so far.

I don't care for all the exposed carbon on this car, but overall it still looks good. Too much add-on stuff IMO.

There's a great video about an hour long about how they developed the car and how they smashed the Nurburgring lap record. I'm glad its not gone the way of previous Z's by getting more and more bloated and heavy.

The matte silver looked good in person with the black/cf accents

I am of course biased though with silver & black accents
