There are actually several significant differences - enough so that at least one new patent was required. The Sports Series Monocell also carries what appear to be the upper control arm mounts for the front suspension, whereas those were separate elements on the 12C/650S version of the Monocell. »
That's exactly how the "Show or Display" legislation came to be. Details documented in this old AutoWeek article on the topic:
The owner's son. He's quite capable behind the wheel - regularly races in the Porsche and Ferrari Challenge series events and does pretty well. »
When I saw the headline the Murano Cabriolet was the first and only thing that popped into my mind. I think it might fail the 'ability to find someone else to buy it when finished' test though. »

I am a little upset that this thing was in Monterey this year for Car Week and I missed my chance to KIWF. »
