Novitec is now turned their tuning wand to McLaren’s. Some of you may have seen the Novitec Ferrari F12 running around our local shores, or maybe you have heard it. That sound you confused for the apocalypse that fateful Saturday morning was actually that car, so not to worry.
McLaren is now offering 5 ‘Design Editions’ for their more manageable more everyday 570S sports car. Basically, their internal design team came up with 5 different specs that owners can order as a package for about $10000 (no word yet as to how much they will charge in Rands).
McLaren has released a teaser image of what they are calling a “the world’s first Hyper-GT”. The overview of the car indicates that it adopts the 3 seat layout of its much older sibling the infamous F1.
Chris Harris chooses his Performance Car of 2016 in the November issue of Top Gear South Africa. If you don’t know who Chris Harris is, you may be a little lost and this is definitely not the website for you.
Today, however, there is a myriad of choices out there. Well, that is if your pockets are deep enough. We have super light, minimalistic options like the Arial Atom, lean Swedish witchcraft engineering in the form of the Koenigsegg One:1 and brute, yet luxurious options like the Bugatti Chiron and don’t even get us started on the electric wizardry from the holy trinity.
Deadmau5 recently confirmed that he had purchased a McLaren P1 along with a 650S Spider that on random nights he uses to ferry Uber users around in his home town of Toronto. Pretty darn cool. Now the Canadian DJ has posted some of the options he has chosen for his P1.
What makes a Ferrari engine so rememberable is its sheer beauty and the fact that a persons smile/excitement level is directly proportional to the rev counter on that car. The higher you rev it, the bigger the smile, explains why all Ferrari owners all resemble the joker from batman, well kind of!
OK, I don’t mean that literally, but the gents at Autocar UK have done the world a favour by rounding up (potentially, stupid Ferrari) the world’s greatest hypercars, the McLaren P1, the Porsche 918 Spyder and the LaFerrari for a bit of a race. Although, Ferrari didn’t want to partake in this even, they had to find a suitable replacement. One, in which, we thought would get absolutely HAMMERED. They brought in Ferrari’s super fast, super lightweight 200bhp, two wheeled cousin. The Ducati 1199 Superleggera.
Turn up the sound, in fact get a pair of headphones and the turn it up, the “WHOOOOOSHING” of the dump valves and that beautiful V8 make for a spin tingling soundtrack.
