Nothing formal has been released on this website. To the best of my knowledge, there have been no leaked HW-40 DD pictures posted before the official launch. This might be a first for VPI ;)

Someone else leaked a photo of an unfinished version on FB, but then deleted it. And Mat's been teasing it often in the background of various photos for the eagle-eyed, so it's not like this is really a surprise other than being dubbed the HW-40. :D

Yes that is where I saw the picture. I don't know if they had permission to post a pic or not or even if that is the completed table.
Looks nice though, like a classic plinth with the platter shifted to the left maybe so a 12" arm can be used?
