Bruce McLaren decided he was going to build the fastest mid-engine car in the world to contend the Group 4 category in the World Sportscar Championship.

A nice sport car powered by a 5.0-litre Chevrolet V8 designed by Bruce McLaren… you know… a guy who’s dream reach nowadays thru the F1 lengedary team and McLaren supercars.

2014 McLaren 650S

March, 2014 § Leave a comment

McLaren has a new car, the 650S. They are trying to find it’s identity design. The front of this car is like a McLaren P1, the rear is from MP4-12C.  I’m not sure this headlights (McLaren’s logo shaped) are nice enough, but this frankenstein, taking the best of both, becomes the most beautiful of the trio.

Three first pics of the successor of the legendary McLaren F1!!!  To much awaited.. but with a design that I don’t really like.  No matter the headlights mimic the McLaren logo or the bonnet scoop and the orange colour similar to F1. Compare both cars in that pics:

If u like the new McLaren, you’ll like the new spider edition even more!    Enjoy it. It’s nice having Mclaren back in the arena, after the unforgettable Mclaren F1 street car.

2010 McLaren MP4-12C

August, 2010 § 1 Comment

McLaren’s automotive division has built one oy my favourite cars of all time: McLaren F1 (1993-1998). Also, with Mercedes have designed the SLR McLaren (2003-2009).  We always expect great cars from McLaren Automotive (one of the most teams in the Formula 1 World Championship).

I have to say “thanks!” to Frank Stephenson (McLaren Automotive Design Director) for let us enjoy this nice car.  He said a interesting words:  “Many sports cars and super cars present an ‘in-your-face’, ‘look-at-me’ image that can become wearing and boorish; the ultimate backhanded compliment becomes, “…it was of its time”. Great design, however, is timeless and looks relevant years later. Take the McLaren F1 as an example. I hope that with the 12C we have produced a car that looks great today and will still look great in years to come.

Great design is timeless…

1993 Mclaren F1

One of my favourite “contemporary” cars, only 106 cars were manufactered. Thanks Gordon Murray for this 3-seated car with the driver seated in the middle!

A powerful engine, in light car… probably it would be considered the ultimate road car ever. A modified race car edition of the vehicle won several races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995, against purpose-built prototype race cars.

In 2008 the F1 remains as one of the fastest production cars ever made; as of July 2010 it is only succeeded by the Koenigsegg CCR, the Bugatti Veyron and the SSC Ultimate Aero TT. However, all of the superior top speed machines use forced induction to reach their respective top speeds – making the McLaren F1 the fastest naturally aspirated production car in the world.

Pics of  Mclaren F1 LM… it’s gourgeous, isn’t? 😉 Enjoy it.
