The boys at Road & Track magazine got their hands on our 818R test car. They put out an on-line article with an expanded article due out in the magazine shortly (they visited the plant, took pics of parts and cars, etc). here's the article link.
Factory Five Racing 818 Race Car First Drive - On Track Drive of the - Road & Track
Here are somne cool quotes:
"It has enough pace to match modern Corvettes and Porsches in a straight line." Road&Track
"Steering is direct and slop-free, directing the 818’s low-sniffing nose with inch-level precision without power assistance. The brakes, too, are entirely unboosted, requiring significant pressure but delivering trustworthy feedback up to the locking point."
Road & Track
"Factory Five’s newest offering is a credible and not-all-that-crude alternative to the Lotus Exige S or Porsche Boxster Spyder. After a dozen or so laps of Gingerman, hearing the frantic boxer blat behind me while fellow trackday drivers fell back on the straights and the corners as if their rear bumpers were connected by rubber bands to the 818’s square-tubed frame, I’m ready to believe."
