The McLaren M20 Had 750 Horsepower And Could Destroy Porsches (On Good…

Pretty new Macca, huh? Here’s an old one, the M20 sports prototype from the waning days of McLaren’s dominance of Can-Am. Fiberglass and aluminum, crazy velocity stacks, F1- and Can-Am champion Denny Hulme at the wheel, who managed to beat the turbocharged Porsche 917’s in the early races of the 1972 season but lost… » 2/20/13 3:25pm 2/20/13 3:25pm

The Last Oldschool Airliner's Production Is Over

It's the end of the line for the Tupolev Tu-154.

Here in the USA, you can almost always spot an Indian product. This is very different than Chinese products, which are so numerous and varied as to be anonymous. But Indian products you find in the America, they almost all have this artisan/handmade quality. Whether it's jewelry in bins at Anthropologie or manhole… » 2/20/13 12:41pm 2/20/13 12:41pm

This Is How The Techno Fabulous McLaren P1 Makes 903 Hybrid Horsepower

You might think that the 616 horsepower the MP4-12C gets out of McLaren's 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 is pretty much the limit of what's possible for a car that spends most of its time on public roads.
