    I wonder if the people receiving the first few cars off the line consider themselves lucky or unlucky ?

    Having worked in manufacturing I can tell you that the first 100 or so cars off a new production line always have a few more issues that the rest to follow as the manufacturer irons out issues with the new lines.

    Then again this CTR is mostly a standard FK3 line.

    Saw Jenson Button being interviewed yesterday while driving a new Type-R. Was speaking about the British Grand Prix rather than the Type-R though.

    Personally I was a bit distracted by his wife who was sitting in the passenger seat!
