This is what’s called “building brand awareness.”
If you’re slightly confused as to which McLaren model is which, I don’t blame you: the cars pretty much all look the same. They all look fast and aerodynamic and purpose-built, but they’re nearly identical for sure. So I will go ahead and make you this handy little post that you can reference at the next dinner party…
That rear window hatch on the McLaren 570GT is a pretty cool feature for anyone who’s ever complained about the practicality of a supercar. I mean, it definitely increases the car’s storage capacity by about 49 percent, for sure. And now you can tint that rear window however you want. Can you say fancy?
We first saw glimpses of the secret McLaren MSO HS this morning, along with a few fuzzy pictures stolen from the factory. But thanks to some digging and some help from a source, we now have it all in its Earthly glory. This is the McLaren MSO HS, the ultimate car in McLaren’s Super Series, and one of the fastest…
McLaren is one of the most exclusive car companies in the world, building vehicles that are on the bleeding edge of technology. But only the truly extreme wonders get full commissions from McLaren Special Operations—McLaren’s own Skunkworks. This is the 688-horsepower MSO HS, and you’re not really supposed to know…
Sure, having a McLaren on your desktop is great (though having a real one is, admittedly, better). It would be just flashy enough, get the attention of passerby and perhaps give you the motivation to speed through your workday. But having two McLarens on your desktop? That’s the way to do it.
After looking at the evidence, I was pretty sure last week’s viral video of a skateboarder smashing a McLaren windshield—a video that has garnered over 9 million views on YouTube—was a giant farce. The only ingredient missing before we could be sure was a confession from the video uploader, but now we’ve got that.
Over the week, British car magazine Autocar reported that the beloved McLaren F1 would be reborn in 2018 as the “hyper-GT” with a price of well over $2.6 million. But if you’ve already started saving your pennies, slow down a bit—according to reports, McLaren’s CEO shut down that rumor.
So much of what surrounds supercars and hyper cars has to do with theater and presence. The looks of the car, the sound it makes—it’s all a part of the drama. It’s entertainment, and McLaren agrees.
A carbon fiber chassis, 204 mile per hour, $240,000 McLaren 570S belongs out in the South of France or the Swiss Alps or Northern Italy somewhere. So naturally we took it to America’s gnarliest dirt track instead.
The McLaren F1 is still probably one of the most radical and absolutely insane supercars to ever grace this planet, and according to a new report from UK car magazine Autocar, McLaren is gearing up a bespoke, all-new three-seater supercar for 64 lucky, lucky, lucky customers.
We’re all familiar with this car. It’s quite a fucking fast one. You should buy it, garage it, and only take it out to play with on Sundays at the track, right? Wrong!
Honda motorsport head Yusuke Hasegawa would like to find a second team to partner with in Formula One to better develop its power unit, but he told Autosport that no one was interested. Honda’s F1 engine has just sucked too much, too often.
McLaren has been designing its Formula 1 racing efforts and sports cars using a virtual reality simulator, and now it’d like to think it could market this to the rest of the automotive industry. That doesn’t mean your next car will drive like a McLaren, though.
The demand for the limited production run of 500 McLaren 675LTs was so great the company made 500 more Spider variants to make up for it. This is good, because the McLaren 675LT Spider isn’t here to cater to your feelings. It’s here to be driven hard.
McLarens are pretty easy to understand: a shared carbon tub, a shared twin-turbo V8, and lots of variations everywhere else. This looks like the newest take on the formula, the 688HS.
The third member of McLaren’s entry-level Sport Series is a 562 horsepower mid-engined supercar offering such a great ride that it has no real competition. Forget the Audi R8 or the Porsche 911 Turbo. If you want to cross the continent driving a proper rear-wheel-drive exotic, McLaren’s first hatchback is the correct…
McLaren has a plan called Track 22 including a bunch of goals the supercar company wants to see completed by the year 2022. One of those goals happens to be deciding whether or not the successor to the McLaren P1 is going to be fully-electric. Hope you’re cool with that.
