i'm not sure if we could consider it "lucky" that we, in the US, get to have 600 units WITHOUT a preorder... or 100 WITH preorder. Canadians, did the 100 sold out within seconds of it being open for pre-order online? Just wondering since that's pretty much the vibe of 2020 with any online releases...

All 100 sold out within minutes. I was able to get in a few minutes before the scheduled time and got lucky with being quick to the draw entering my information. By some heresay accounts, it supposedly opened 2 minutes early and sold out 2 minutes after the scheduled time, so around 4 minute window altogether.

I’m getting PTSD cause you mentioned PS5 - I had a heckuva time trying to secure one to no avail. Anyway, good luck to you if you’re shooting for an LE! I think it’s such bs how USA dealers charge exorbitant markup on special cars. The LE is expensive (for my budget) at MSRP as it is already.

yea... the cost + mark up, makes daily driving it seems like it'd be somewhat stressful. I know it's not in the same caliber, but I'm not sure how some people could daily drive their R8 or lambos...

Update: They just told me mine (and probably a lot of yall’s too) is in Nova Scotia. At least 3 weeks out still....
Same here. My dealer told me it was supposed to be Jan delivery, but due to delay at the port, the estimated delivery is going to be February.

My local dealer had a pre-order for 2 of them and they sold instantly...this is the special one that if you get your hands on i hope it's a garage queen cause in 20 years from now if you can somehow still have it and it's bellow 10K miles in perfect condition it'll be worth a pretty penny.

i agree! I feel very fortunate that I got two of them. While I definitely didn’t do it for “investment” purposes, I absolutely love the thought of keeping both of them. I really love the CTR and the LE just takes it up a notch!

then i would drive 1 but i would never park it anywhere but in my driveway and i would wax it often and keep her out of the sun...and the other one i would put away at the back of my garage under a tarp and put no miles on it :cool:

I plan on using my LE each summer...it’s a 3rd car for me so it will always be kept in a garage, and it will never be driven in the rain...but it will get driven 🤟

While a small percentage of people dd a car like an R8, that’s not a good comp. Those types of cars don’t make good dd’s. That’s the beauty of the CTR - is a tarted up economy/family car that makes a great dd. Same with M3’s, S4’s, etc., just more upmarket.

This makes no sense. That’s an investment perspective. Take the $45k and see what that will be worth in 20 yrs. And it’s like marrying a supermodel and ‘wrestling’ with her only couple of times a year...

At the end of the day, cars are meant to be driven. I plan on even taking my LE out to the track as I've had a blast driven the CTR on track in the past and it would be interesting to see how it compares with my S2000

Same here! Got to use the car for what it is optimized for “as-is”.
