July 7th, 2015

We have a brand new 2015 McLaren 650S Spider in Volcano Yellow in for testing and started off with a photo shoot along with some drone footage from above.

Drag Race: Ferrari LaFerrari vs. McLaren 650S Spider

May 19th, 2015

So, how fast is the McLaren 650S Spider? This video, from the VMax 200 Hypermax event near London, England, tells the tale. In almost any scenario, the 650S is at the top of the heap – from a performance perspective, but in this field that includes billions of dollars worth of supercars it may well be outmatched. Take the driver’s point of view (U.S. market version), as the McLaren pulls to the line; now glance over and check out the left-hand drive Ferrari LaFerrari in the far lane. This thing is a hybrid-powered monster. Sure the McLaren packs quite a Read More

825HP McLaren MP4-12C by EVOMS runs 9’s

May 14th, 2015

A McLaren MP4-12C with upgrades from EVOMS is the first McLaren to run 9’s in the 1/4 mile with a 9.9 @ 140.9 MPH at Firebird International Raceway in Arizona.   The modifications include a set of upgraded turbochargers, full exhaust, exhaust heat wraps, ECU tuning along with a set of drag radials. ECU tuning also allowed for the MP4-12Cs launch control RPM to be raised from 3,100 RPM to 3,500 RPM to take advantage of the sticky tires and extra power off the line with 60′ times in the low 1.6x range. On the dyno the car picked up over 200 horsepower Read More

Koenigsegg Agera Takes on All-Comers at VMAX200

May 11th, 2015

Take a gander at this Swedish supercar as it tows the line against a Ferrari LaFerrari, a Porsche 918 Spyder, and finally against a Ferrari 458 Speciale. The VMAX200 Hypermax, held on a private runway near London, England, is a top speed driving event geared towards the world’s most exotic automobiles. Over a billion dollars worth of rolling-stock regularly participates in this contest that tries the limitations of sports cars such as the McLaren P1 and the Koenigsegg CCX, as well as various Bugatti, Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini models. The Koenigsegg Agera N, shown in this video, has been modified from stock. It features Read More

McLaren 650S Spanks Ferrari 458

May 4th, 2015

Watch as this blue McLaren 650S embarrasses a yellow Ferrari 458 during the Gran Turismo event in Slovakia. If you pay attention, you will notice the driver of the Ferrari trying to distract onlookers with his own version of the “gun show”. That doesn’t keep him from getting “rocked with a body-shot” as the 650S pulls farther and farther out in front. The recently introduced 650S is a more economical version of the iconic McLaren 12C. A 641-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, mated with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, is at the heart of this predatory beast. It can Read More

April 22nd, 2015

We were invited by Capristo Exhaust to attend an open track day at Palm Beach International Raceway where a great line up exotics attended and were lapping the road course all day long.   While it was great to see a great mix of South Florida exotics attending, including multiple Ferraris, Lamborghinis and McLarens, there was one car that stood out from the rest. The surprise attendee was one of the 3 current HyperCars, a silver McLaren P1 with its 903HP hybrid drivetrain, 7 speed DCT and active aero systems . After putting the P1 into full race mode, the rear wing Read More

March 31st, 2015

Check out the latest model from British supercar manufacturer McLaren. The 2015 McLaren 570S is just one model in a new line of “sport-series” supercars that are designed to push the limits of performance to the brink while maintaining excellent drivability. With such stunning credentials as the ability to rocket from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2-seconds, 0 to 124 mph in only 9.5-seconds, and an electronically regulated top-speed of 204 mph, the 570S certainly seems super indeed. Fifty-years of Formula 1 racing experience are brought to bear in every 570S. From the lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque shell to the mid-mounted Read More

2016 McLaren 675LT

March 20th, 2015

Wrap your head around the 2016 McLaren 675LT, a more powerful and lighter long-tail version of the popular McLaren 650S. The 675LT was introduced last week during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The 675LT features reduced weight, more horsepower, and a 40-percent increase in downforce. A new swirling front fascia and exhaust outlet equipped rear splitter with carbon fiber elements lend themselves to greater downforce, improved aerodynamics, and the lightweight approach. The extra power comes from a redesigned version of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 that produces 666 HP and 700 lb.-ft. of torque. New lightweight connecting rods, improved turbochargers, higher duration Read More

The McLaren MP4-12C is powered by 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo tuned by AMS Alpha Performance bumping up the power from 616 HP Read More

Corvette Z06 chases a McLaren P1 at COTA

February 17th, 2015

Take a look at a new Corvette Z06 trying to chase down a McLaren P1 at the Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, Texas.  It’s pretty amazing to watch the McLaren P1 with it’s 903HP 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo along with a electric motor absolutely leave the Z06 like it’s standing still on the straights. During a few moments in the video the Corvette gets a bit too close for comfort to the $1.2M hyper car.  We would certainly be giving the P1 it’s space and respect for being on the track with ‘normal’ cars. The video was taken from the Read More
