New Lamborghini S – Test Track

June 16th, 2017

When Lamborghini introduced the Aventador in 2011, it set the world of high-performance sports cars on its ear. Less than a decade removed and the same Aventador was becoming a bit mundane. It was to be expected – with recent advances in speed and technology. Offerings from McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, and Bugatti – just to name a few – have had the big Lamborghini floundering for a portion of the premium market share. Not being a car company to suffer in mediocrity, Lamborghini has recently introduced the all-new Aventador S; seen before your very eyes in this video. The S Read More

McLaren 720S – Track Testing

June 6th, 2017

Join professional race driver Steve Sutcliffe as he puts this British beauty through its paces on a closed track. From the 650S family of cars, this is the car rumored to be quicker than the P1. After driving the car to the track on some rough public (Italian) streets, Steve is rendered speechless as he challenges the 720S around steep corners and deep curves. The acceleration is blinding, the steering crisp and clean, and the braking is precise and effortless. No wonder our wheel-man is left without words. The 720S is equipped with an all-new 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine Read More

Drag Race – McLaren 540C vs Honda NSX vs Nissan GT-R

May 27th, 2017

If you trust the statistics, all the data points to the McLaren getting spanked handily in this short drag race. Both the Japanese supercars have more power and more torque than the British variant. Adding insult to injury – the McLaren is the only car in this elite field that is not all-wheel drive so, it also has less traction. Fortunately for us, the producers of this video decided to go ahead and run the race anyway. Sometimes things don’t work out as expected. The carbon-fiber tubbed McLaren is the lightest of the three cars and is equipped with a Read More

POV – 9-Second McLaren 570S

May 18th, 2017

This video introduces us to what is officially the first McLaren 570S to ever post a 9-second quarter-mile elapsed time. That makes this British built supercar a world record holder of sorts. In my humble opinion, the McLaren 570S is a seriously amazing automobile, in factory trim. Each (entry level) mid-engine 570S that rolls off the assembly line (there are only about 4,000 produced annually) does so with a 502hp, 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine that also makes 443 lb.-ft. of torque. It comes with a sequential, 7-speed gearbox and it is rear-wheel drive. In stock trim, the 570S can accelerate Read More

Track Testing the New Lamborghini Aventador S

February 4th, 2017

In an effort to keep pace in the ever evolving world of supercars, Lamborghini has introduced the all new Lamborghini Aventador S. Recent offerings from Ferrari and McLaren have made it necessary for Lamborghini to up the ante in the Aventador lineup. That brings us to the “S” version. In addition to an exterior face lift, the Aventador S also benefits from a more powerful engine, improved steering, and a universal controller that overlaps all of the car’s major components together for a much smoother and more refined driving experience. The test-driver refers to the new version S as a Read More

So, ever wonder what $187,400 will buy you? One thing is a lightweight, high-powered, British sports car; more specifically, the 2016 McLaren 570S. If you would like to know what it’s made of, this video takes us back to Mazda’a Laguna Seca Raceway for another round of the 2016 Best Driver’s Car from Motor Trend and Mother’s. The latest 570S offering begins with a genuine carbon-fiber center section and a 562hp (443lb-ft. of torque) flat-plane crankshaft 3.8-liter V8 engine with twin turbochargers. It is a mid-engine rear-wheel drive car with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and a fixed-damper suspension. Read More

Porsche vs Ferrari vs McLaren – Drag Race to 200 MPH

September 7th, 2016

This clip brings us a drag race (to 200 mph) between a Porsche 918 Spyder, a Ferrari LaFerrari, and a McLaren P1. It is skillfully produced with pre-race car setup included. The sound of these three automotive masterpieces posturing at the starting line is enough to make your ears want to dance. The 918 manages to produce 874hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque and it’s riding on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. All that power comes from a 4.6-liter internal combustion V8 engine and a trio of lithium ion battery powered electric motors. The LaFerrari is equipped with a Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder vs Dodge Viper ACR vs McLaren P1

September 1st, 2016

This video saga involves three vastly different exotic cars, on the same tires, on the same track, and with the same driver. No, it’s certainly not drag racing, but it is an extremely even test of some of today’s most outstanding automobiles. The cars are the Porsche 918 Spyder. It is a hybrid high-performance vehicle that features a mid-mounted, 90-degree V, 4.6-liter engine, with a flat plane crankshaft, and two-electric motors making 887hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque. That’s pretty impressive but the sticker price is downright shocking at a cool starting point of $847,975. The Dodge Viper ACR represents Read More

Special Delivery – McLaren 675LT Spyder

August 1st, 2016

How friggin’ lucky is this guy? Today Shmee is taking special delivery of his 2016 McLaren 675LT Spyder in (what the new owner has deemed) MSO Orion Purple. Can you even imagine taking delivery of such an automobile? Seems silly to think that I believed myself special when I took delivery of a new Harley Davidson Street Glide (due to a broken ankle – that’s another story) but this is far and above anything that I can imagine. The 675LT Spyder is a very unique automobile with it’s retractable roof and roadster style seating. Inside and out, this thing is awesome. There Read More
