If I don't currently drink coffee should I take it up so that I can stop again to reap financial windfall?

Aside from the fan system, there is no reason car makers couldn't do this.

Isn’t a MT GT3 essentially this concept but at its own price point?

And I disagree - he can do it because folks will buy it... but if BMW made a crazy expensive N/A, MT bespoke super car for millions I doubt it would “go well”.

Heck even the E36 LTW floundered on lots for year(s) and have now only gotten popular as EAG has sold them for insane prices.

There are few and far between manufacturers who could do this, and Gordon Murray is at or near the peak

It feels weird to want a modern supercar

Lewis Hamilton will be in the short list of buyers. This is a driver's car.
P.S. the f1 is still the sexiest car ever made in my eyes
