How Does the McLaren GT’s Weight Stack Up Against Other Great Models?
McLaren promised to roll out a mid-engined grand tourer, and when McLaren makes a promise, you know it’s going to deliver. It didn’t take long for the British supercar brand to come through on its word because the McLaren GT is here, and it looks every bit like the performance grand tourer the folks over at Woking, England said it would be. Classifications notwithstanding, the GT is more potent than the 570GT and more practical than the 650S. It’s also as light as a feather, at least when you compare it to other grand tourers of its ilk. Combine its weight with its power and performance capabilities, and McLaren could be onto something when it described the GT as a superlight supercar with perception-altering potential.
First Walkaround Video Shows Just How Awesome The McLaren Artura Is
When McLaren woke up from its sleep in 2010 and started churning out fantastic supercars, some said it will only be temporary. One decade later, McLaren is still doing its thing, combining sleek-looking, low-slung cars with insane performance. With the Artura, the supercar maker managed to prove yet another thing: it is not afraid to switch it up every now and then just as it is not afraid to play with new tech.
GMA T.50s Niki Lauda Arrives as a Track-Focused Destroyer on Four Wheels
Gordon Murray Automotive has revealed the track version of the McLaren F1-inspired T.50 supercar. It’s called the GMA T.50s Niki Lauda, named after the three-time F1 world champion. GMA developed the T.50s Niki Lauda with the goal of turning it into the be-all and end-all for a track car. It comes with a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine that produces 89 fewer horsepower than the McLaren Senna GTR, but weighs 30 percent lighter and generates 50 percent more downforce than the McLaren track car. GMA plans to build only 25 units of the T.50s Niki Lauda. Each unit is priced at $4.3 million, and production is set to begin at the end of 2021.
McLaren Artura - The Plug-In Hybrid Supercar Without a Reverse Gear!
With cutting edge technology inside its all-new twin-turbo V6 engine, an electrical plug AND a warranty - surprised face - this is the brand-new McLaren Artura, a plug-in hybrid supercar that finally has a name you’ll remember. Probably. Oh, and it also doesn’t have a reverse gear.
Someone Has Finally Drag Tested the Ferrari SF90
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale puts a lot of supercars in their place with its blistering pace, but the quickness that it can to go from point A to point B is something that a lot of people have to see for themselves.
Brooks Weisblat from Dragtimes provided that opportunity when he got a chance to drive an SF90 in the streets of Puerto Rico. That’s where Ferrari’s new hybrid-supercar proved its worth, clocking a 0-to-60-mph time of just 2.35 seconds and hitting a quarter-mile in 9.62 seconds at 146 mph.
Meet the Roofless Huracan EVO Aperta That Lamborghini Wouldn’t Build
There are people who aren’t satisfied with just a Huracan Evo; they want more or at the very least, something that’ll serve as a physical manifestation of their status. The drive to be different is the reason the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Aperta exists. It’s a one-off, Huracan Evo-based creation that’s without a roof, windows, or a windshield. It also has a V-10 engine with more power than the Huracan Evo’s “standard” V-10 unit. In other words, it’s a Lamborghini Huracan Evo unlike any other, or as some people like to say, “it’s a one-of-a-kind, roofless monster on four wheels.”
This One-Off McLaren Senna Merlin Goes To Show Just How Magical MSO Really Is
A one-off McLaren Senna that’s been customized by McLaren Special Operations is up for auction on Bring A Trailer. The unit, number 401 of the 500 Sennas made, is unique for several reasons, none more significant than the “Merlin” name it’s been bestowed. The one-of-a-kind Senna “Merlin” currently has a bid of $900,000 with eight days left in the auction.
This McLaren 765LT Can Run The Quarter-Mile in 8.9 Seconds!
It’s safe to say that we are spoiled for horsepower. About 20 years ago 500 horsepower was considered a very respectable figure for a supercar. Nowadays, people laugh at the notion of a 500-horsepower car that has any supercar claims. This is why supercars with over 700 horsepower have become a rather common sight. This also means that we get some pretty mental stuff on four wheels, like this McLaren 765 LT.
10 Things You Must Know About The McLaren Artura
For a while, McLaren was a bit of a wild card in the automotive industry. Almost 30 years ago, they gave us the F1, which was the fastest production car for over a decade. After that, they went quiet. This of course changed around 2010 when they announced their first supercar for the century – the MP4-12C. This was the beginning of McLaren’s offensive and cars like the 650S, 600LT, and 720S were spawned. Now, McLaren gives us the Artura and it’s a bit different than the others. Here’s what you need to know.
The McLaren Artura PHEV Lays the Foundation for an Electrified Future
The McLaren Artura is here, and with it comes a lot of firsts for McLaren. It’s the first plug-in hybrid McLaren, even though it counts as McLaren’s third hybrid model behind the P1 and the Speedtail. It’s also the first McLaren to use the freshly developed 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, put in place of the bigger and heavier 3.8-liter V-8 unit that McLaren has used for its Sports Series models in recent years.
The Artura is also the first McLaren hybrid supercar that’s built on the automaker’s new MCLA platform. It’s the same architecture the British automaker developed to accommodate electrified powertrains. The Artura’s arrival sets the stage for McLaren’s electrified future that now looks a lot more compelling.
2021 Ferrari 812 GTS By Novitec
Novitec is back in the car tuning spotlight with a new aftermarket program. This time, the German tuner is setting its sights on the Ferrari 812 GTS with a promise of aesthetic and aerodynamic improvements to go with an engine upgrade kit that bumps the Ferrari’s 6.5-liter V-12 engine’s output to almost 850 horsepower. A new set of wheels courtesy of Vossen Wheels is also included in the program.
SpeedKore’s Dodge Charger Hellraiser Is Built For Kevin Hart
It has been a while since we last heard about SpeedKore and in a way, the whole waiting paid off. The Wisconsin-based custom shop that used to delight our eyes at SEMA has been brewing something over the past months and now it is finally out. Meet the SpeedKore Dodge Charger Hellraiser built specifically for comedian and actor Kevin Hart.
The TVR Griffith Might Just Happen After All
Announced with great celebrations at Goodwood Revival back in 2017, the same year TVR celebrated its 70th birthday, the reborn Griffith sports car gradually fell into a cone of shadow after a series of delays and it got to a point where it completely went off radar for the past two years.
Put in front of this sizzle and no steak situation, we, just like you, thought the project was dumped. Apparently, that is not the case as a new loan keeps TVR on track to delivering the second-gen Griffith.
The McLaren Artura, A Successor To the 570S, Will Be Revealed On February 16
McLaren is hard at work brewing a new supercar. It is called the Artura and it will replace the 570S in the Sports Series range. However, the Artura bears quite the importance for McLaren as it is going to pack the brand’s first twin-turbo V-6 and hybrid tech.
Ferrari’s One-Off Creations is A List of the Most Desirable Prancing Horses of All Time
Back in 2008, Ferrari launched its One-Off personalization program to a lot of fanfare at that year’s Geneva Motor Show. The goal was to give Maranello’s most important clients the opportunity to create their own Ferraris. It’s been over a decade since that announcement, and it’s safe to say that Ferrari’s program has become a resounding success. Every year, a number of one-off Ferraris enter our lives, commissioned by an individual who Ferrari deems as one of its VIPs. Models like the 2012 Ferrari SP Arya, 2014 Ferrari SP FFX, and 2018 Ferrari SP38 Deborah have been built. Each of these one-offs is unique from every other Ferrari in existence, largely because they came to life as a result of someone’s vision for his or her perfect Ferrari. The 2019 Ferrari P80/C is the latest one-off Ferrari to arrive, but given the success Ferrari has had with the program and the growing demand among customers to get their own “1of1s” — there’s a five-year waitlist, in case you qualify — the P80/C won’t be the last one-off Ferrari in the world. On the contrary, this first ten years of the whole program could be just the beginning of what will most likely turn into one of Ferrari’s most successful customer-centric programs in its long and illustrious history. In case you haven’t paid attention over the last ten years, check out some of the most memorable one-off models that Ferrari has created.
2020 Ferrari Roma
The 2020 Ferrari Roma is a front-engined, 2+2 grand tourer based on the Portofino. Powered by a 3.9-liter V-8 engine, the 2020 Roma slots under the 812 Superfast and it’s the company most affordable vehicle as of 2021. Its exterior design is inspired by Ferrari 250 models from the 1960s and focused on understated elegance rather than aggressiveness. The 2020 Roma is aimed at Aston Martin and Porsche buyers and the Italian firm estimates that 70 percent of clients will be first-time Ferrari customers. Is the 2020 Roma a solid competitor for the likes of the Aston Martin DB11? Let’s find out in the review below.
Jaguar Brings The Iconic C-Type Back To Life With A Continuation Series
British automaker Jaguar has just announced a new continuation series for one of its legendary classic models, the C-Type. A race car originally built from 1951 to 1953, the C-Type joins the D-Type, Lightweight E-Type, and XKSS on Jaguar’s list of classic cars revived through the company’s Continuation project.
Just like the cars before it, the C-Type Continuation will be built to original specs using data from the brand’s archive and by scanning on original model. Only eight will be built, adding to the 53 examples that Jaguar assembled in the 1950s.
Novitec’s Exhaust System Makes The Ferrari 812 GTS Sound Obtrusively Mean
The Ferrari 812 Superfast, introduced in 2017 as a replacement for the F12berlinetta, is without doubt one of the sexiest grand tourers on the market today. And while most competitors pack turbocharged engines, Ferrari remained loyal to the mighty, naturally aspirated V-12. Some say that the 812 Superfast is the perfect modern grand tourer as far as links to iconic models like the 250 GTO go, but YouTube’s Mr JWW seems to think that the Italian GT can be improved. How? By pairing the open-top layout of the GTS with a Novitec exhaust system.
These U.K.-Delivered Lamborghini Sians Are Downright Gorgeous
Sian, the Lamborghini that’s been named after the Bolognese-dialect word for lightning, is the carmaker’s first step towards electrification. Other than its intricate hybrid internals, the Sian is also a jolly joy to look at as highlighted by these pictures.
Living With The Ferrari Roma On a Daily Basis? It MIght Not Be As Good As You Think
In 2020 Ferrari added a third grand tourer to its lineup, the Roma. Slotted below the V-12-powered 812 Superfast, the Roma features a 3.9-liter V-8, just like the Portofino, but unlike the latter, it’s a coupe. Thanks to a new design language, the Roma is one of the prettiest modern Ferraris out there. But is it a performance grand tourer that you can live with on a daily basis? YouTube’s Harry’s Garage took one for a long spin to find out just that.
