McLaren celebrates 25 years since winning Le Mans with special-edition 720S

The 2020 McLaren 720S Le Mans is a limited-edition version of the company’s mid-range supercar. It was created to celebrate 25 years since McLaren won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the F1 GTR. We could say that the 720S Le Mans is some sort of spiritual successor to the 650S Le Mans, which was launched in 2015 to celebrate 20 years since the company’s win on Circuit de la Sarthe. Limited to only 50 units, the 2020 720S Le Mans comes with unique features inside and out, and it’s powered by the same V-8 engine as the standard model.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1

The Mustang Mach 1 returns after 17 years with Shelby upgrades

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a higher performance version of the sixth-generation Mustang. A limited-edition model that revives the Mach 1 nameplate after 17 years, the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 bridges the gap between the GT and the Shelby GT350 models. It’s essentially a Mustang GT with a more aggressive exterior and some parts from the Shelby GT350. Power comes from the standard 5.0-liter V-8 from the GT, but output matches that of the limited-edition Bullitt model. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is the fifth Mach 1 pony car produced since the late 1960s.

2021 Lamborghini Urus Pearl Capsule Design Package

The new Pearl Capsule Design package for the 2021 Lamborghini Urus brightens things up with new colors and carbon fiber elements

The Lamborghini Urus is the youngest model in the company’s lineup and was the best-selling product for the automaker in 2019.

The LE60 package is essentially just a design bundle. The 3 Wheeler features a custom livery with yellow accents and a couple of bespoke features inside the cabin. The drivetrain remains unchanged. Let’s find out more about below.

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Has Arrived To Make Everything Right In the World

The Mustang Mach 1 returns after 17 years with cool looks and Bullitt power

It’s been 17 years since Ford last offered a Mach 1 version of the Mustang, and the iconic nameplate finally returned. After it skipped the fifth-generation pony car, Ford revived the Mach 1 for the sixth-gen model, almost seven years after it debuted in late 2013. A bit late, we would say, but it’s better late than never. Just like its predecessors, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 combines a bold styling package with a beefed-up V-8 engine borrowed from the regular GT. Let’s see what it’s all about below.

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Highboy Package by Long McArthur Ford

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Highboy Package by Long McArthur Ford

This truck digs the 1960s vibes with its retro appearance

Trucks seem to the hot favorites for aftermarket companies to work on. For people with deep pockets, there are companies like Hennessey and Roush. But, when you’re on a budget, you’d prefer to stick to the accessories and packages sold by the automaker itself. One Ford dealer that has gone above and beyond the factory packages is Long McArthur. The Salina, Kansas-based dealership has created many special editions in the past, like the F-150 Cattleman Edition and the F-150 Sidewinder.

Now, the company has revived one of its old packages that would give the perfect, evocative feel to the 2020 F-250. Called the Highboy, this package is based on the namesake Ford trucks sold in the 60s and 70s. This year didn’t start on a good note anyway; so, why not dial it back and live with the retro vibes?
