The McLaren F1 is legendary for reasons that barely need repeating anymore. Fastest car in the world for over a decade. Most expensive car in the world for over a decade. Best car in the world forever and ever, blah blah blah. Less commonly known is just how much of an insane drain it is on the bank accounts of even…
McLaren Cars is known for making very fast road cars. Emphasis on the “road” part. Easy to drive, quiet when you want them to be, almost supple. This is not that. This is not that at all. This is the McLaren Senna, and it’s here to crush every single track day.
The newest member of the McLaren Ultimate Series has dropped a little earlier than expected, appropriately dubbed the McLaren Senna. This isn’t the three-seat layout car we’ve been hearing about, but it’s still really exciting.
McLaren Special Operations is McLaren’s bespoke division, which allows super-wealthy McLaren buyers the chance to get the company to make special versions of their cars just for a customer’s very specific desires, like a dashboard inlaid with the teeth of your enemies, or, in the case here, a paint color based on the…
2003 Dutch Karting Championship winner Rudy van Buren gave up on racing at age 16 when the budget to continue became prohibitively expensive. Now he’s been picked as McLaren’s new Formula One simulator driver after beating 30,000 other gamers worldwide in the World’s Fastest Gamer competition.
Here’s McLaren’s newest GT3 race car: the McLaren 720S GT3. It looks incredible—which is not a tough feat considering the car it’s based on already breathtaking.
Early on Sunday morning, a police officer was on patrol in Alpharetta, Georgia, when a McLaren drove very quickly by. The officer chased the zooming car, starting a five-mile pursuit that saw the McLaren top out at 155 mph. Finally, the McLaren pulled over and stopped, its brakes smoking. You might be surprised to…
A new street-legal McLaren P1 replacement, a car that has been in the works for years, now has a date attached to it, McLaren says. And a time as well. The car will be unveiled “exactly one minute past midnight” on Dec. 10.
Ford Focuss. Chevy Camri. Kneesan Leaf. The internet’s hard, and spelling’s even harder. The automotive industry’s full of funky names, so it’s no surprise that people consistently goof one up in a search engine. And AutoGuide.com’s here to call every single one of them out.
The year isn’t out yet, but the McLaren 720S was definitely the coolest car that debuted in 2017. It’s fine if you disagree, just also know that you are utterly wrong.
The best thing about McLaren’s Formula One team right now is that they want to let their drivers drive in other series. We had to ask McLaren Technology Group Executive Director and real-life American in F1 Zak Brown if Fernando Alonso might drive at the 24 Hours of Daytona. “Stay tuned,” he told us.
McLaren confirmed today that Fernando Alonso will be staying with the Formula One team for next year alongside Stoffel Vandoorne, F1 announced. Thankfully, since McLaren will run Renault power units next year, they might actually have a competitive car.
Now, not to make any guesses or jump to conclusions here, but someone once said those “McLaren” things aren’t cheap. And price tags always tend to rise when you put your own spin on something, so customizing one sounds like quite the expensive endeavor. Customizing two? Well, then.
Bruce McLaren, the man who founded the automaker of super fast, incredibly technical sports cars, came from New Zealand—but his name hails from an area of Scotland with beautiful scenery and some appropriately accomplished roads.
Around this time last year, Markus Zahn, owner of an orange McLaren Spider, parked this beloved car near an enclosure where Vitus, a donkey, lives. Vitus, apparently mistaking the car for a carrot, tried to eat the rear of the car, leaving the McLaren with $6,800 in damage, according to the BBC. Today, a court in…
McLaren has already said the ultra-expensive hypercar it has in the works will be a three-seater like the original McLaren F1, and that it’ll be made for 106 wealthy, wealthy people. The project, codenamed the “BP23,” is well in the works, since it looks like McLaren’s testing the car’s layout with a 720S mule.
On the heels of collaborating on the completely bonkers and somehow street legal 1,130 horsepower Aston Martin Valkyrie, the increasingly resurgent British sports car company is deepening its ties with energy drink/space jumping/motorsports concern Red Bull in Formula One. Say hello to Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.…
Our friends at Motor1 compared the “entry-level” McLaren 540C with the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Both cars fit into that nebulous area where we aren’t sure if they are sports cars or supercars. Even the hosts noted that nobody will ever really know.
