McLaren’s road cars have juggled usability and ultimate performance, and done so admirably, as to limit compromise along the way.
When rumors swirled around the codenamed “P15” being more track-focused than anything else, it sounded like a foray into an unfamiliar segment. Committing to that singular focus would inevitably redirect attention away from what makes a McLaren so appealing. It’s accessible performance and a balanced everyday driving experience, but throughout history, McLaren’s biggest achievements have truly come by putting all hands on deck at the circuit.
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.
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.
Realigning public roads as a closed course racetrack allows for the most literal use of the phrase “race cars for the road.” It may be the only chance for some of McLaren’s racing variants to take to the street. Continue reading…
McLaren’s meteoric rise back into the supercar prominence came as a result of a disruption of the norm. The MP4-12C stepped in to face established competitors from others such as Ferrari, and squared off against the Italians heroically.
When the floor of the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan sucked the covers off the 570S at its debut in April of 2015, it showed the entire three-tier model lineup for the first time ever. The original debut saw the 570S joining the 675LT and the ultimate P1 – the GTR. Nearly a year later, the tiers come together again for one of the final times in their current guises.
Liberal use of carbon fiber is what keeps today’s supercars constantly pushing beyond their predecessors, as the obsession with lightness aids the staggering performance numbers we see today. Not only that, but it adds a unique look that was not seen on supercars from generations prior.
The Radnor Hunt Club sits among the undisturbed natural terrain of Chester County, and its preserved state offers the perfect setting for equestrianism, similar to how it provided the scene in the late 1800s as the oldest foxhunt in the United States.
The club’s presence as one of the most cherished institutions in the region makes it one of the most desirable locations for special events. Perhaps, though, there is no event more special than the Concours d’Elegance.
The Pebble Beach automotive events every August were once an intimate and exclusive assortment for owners and enthusiasts. But with the expansion of social media, overall coverage has ballooned, leading to the week being one of the most highly-attended set of events in the automotive world.
