BMW has come up with something special this year at Pebble Beach with the world premiere of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R – a car that celebrates both the 40th anniversary of BMW in North America and racing success of the BMW 3.0 CSL back in 1975.
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. We’ll be doing some performance testing soon along with some great heads up racing vs various other cars to see just how well the McLaren 650S when compared to our previous McLaren MP4-12C Coupe. The 650S is powered by an updated version of the MP4-12C motor, a 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo with 641HP.
We’ve got some pictures and videos from the 2015 Festivals of Speed hosted at Museum Park in downtown Miami. Videos include some drone footage from a DJI Inspire 1 along with some revving action from the ADV.1 Ferrari F12 setup with Capristo Exhaust and Fabspeed cat bypass pipes. Other highlights include a Porsche 918 Spyder from Lamborghini Miami and the BurgerFi Lamborghini Aventador 50th Roadster and matching MTI racing boat with a 170MPH top speed.
Some pictures of a 2008 Ferrari F430 we’ll be testing in the next few weeks.
