It’s a new week and welcome to Issue 980 of Exchange Invest which corresponds with the magnificent Carrera GT of the last decade which was essentially a bolide of singularly purposeful speed and a cornucopia of technology made to deliver performance which took the envelope of performance within speed limits on its head unless you live on an autobahn or commute via your own private circuit.
