I'm in the same boat as you. I would rather they call it an M1 but its not happening.

We should be lucky they're making our niche car out of a car that's already a niche. Its an //M car in the sense that they're working on it. It wont be hopefully in terms of a 20,000+ premium. It gives them a smidge more breathing room too. I dont think any //M car in recent history has ever been lighter than the base car. This could change that with the 'SuperSports' if thats what they chose. I think a ZHP in comparison would be too tame. Our trusty insider says its an "un CSL" CSL. Whatever the hell that means.

The Bentley SuperSports lost over 200lbs if I'm not mistaken. Woohoo!
