Long-Awaited Arrivals Hit Geneva

The Geneva Motor Show is not really the place to come with subtle yearly refreshes and facelifts, it demands the newest and very best each brand has to offer. Porsche and McLaren had these projects in the works for years, but 2017 was the culmination and assembly of these ideas in one place.

Performance Reaching New Heights at 2017 Geneva Show

Performance cars are climbing and climbing to what seems like an inevitable plateau, which makes the ridiculous numbers associated with them seem less and less impressive each year. But if there’s any battlefield to truly fight for the industry’s attention, it’s the Geneva Motor Show.

The Swiss show centralizes the top European brands to sculpt the landscape of the next generation of cars. That next generation, for McLaren and Porsche, aims to stave off and elevate that plateau for at least a handful of years.

With No Track in Sight, the P1 GTR Shows Its Real-World Limits

With the debut of the McLaren F1 GTR, the F1 road car was stripped and sent to the track where at Le Mans it had never competed before, let alone won. Lanzante Motorsport, a specialist in classic car service and restoration, took the GTR and made it an instant classic.

The McLaren became the first car, and Lanzante the first team, to win at Le Mans in their respective debuts. The resulting success led to Lanzante Limited earning service capabilities for McLaren road and race cars, thus beginning the next chapter in the history of the F1 GTR and an unprecedented one: road conversion.

The Unattainable McLaren F1 LM Was Ours For a Weekend

When it comes to accomplishments and acting like you’ve been there before, McLaren prefers to go a little bigger with its celebrations.

Up until the 1995 24h of Le Mans, McLaren actually hadn’t been there before, which made its overall victory in the race that much more impressive. The F1 GTR, the race-reserved variant of the highly-praised F1 road car, took the overall win in its debut with four other GTRs. What followed in homage was a run of potentially the greatest road car ever built.

The 570GT Defies the Conformity of a Sports Car

The accessibility of the McLaren 570 is nearly boundless; it attacks a new price point for the brand, and we already proved where it can go when you put your mind to it. So when McLaren debuted the 570GT as a car made for the journey, it was inevitable what would happen when we got into it.

McLaren 570S Chosen Best Driver’s Car for 2016

Sports cars are built to maximize performance, sure, but the reason people pay the super high premiums for them is for the sheer enjoyment. And that’s not something you can pick out on paper.

The only fair and proper – and legal – way to fully enjoy a sports car at its limit is in a track setting. Motor Trend’s “Best Driver’s Car” annual experience drops the year’s best sports cars into Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, Ca., and has at it with its features team. But atypical to the norm, it’s not a race there.

Pebble Beach Auctions Start New Chapters for Unique Cars

Ushering in the next generation of the most desirable luxury and supercars in the world has become the norm at Monterey’s car week, but it wasn’t always that way. The Pebble Beach Concours, the fireworks display at the finale of the weekend, was the celebration of decades of historic and significant vehicles, but up-and-coming events like The Quail Motorsports Gathering have shifted the focus to the new era of exotic cars.
