  1. TL;DR - Cam-car's attempt to filter behind the McLaren Convoy was disrupted by a McLaren 720S that sped past to prevent overtaking. A perfect example of monkey on wheels. Watch this 33-second video to see how this cam-car tried to sandwich between two McLarens but almost got 'rekt'. So what happened? The cam-car signaled right with the intention to filter to the next lane behind the McLaren Convoy. However, his/her attempt failed as a McLaren 720S sped up to prevent the cam-car from cutting into the lane - which was not wrong of the 720S but the cam-car defin
  2. OK, I searched. There have been threads on paddle shifters before, e.g.: http://www.mycarforum.com/topic/2676927-paddle-shifters-which-type-suits-you/. But they don't address this exact question. My specific question is: which particular mounting position of paddle shifters suits you better? Fixed to the wheel or fixed to the steering column? Examples of makes/models with each position (taken from the web): Wheel mounted: BMW - 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 series VW - Golf, GTI Porsche - 918 Audi - R8 McLaren Acura - TL Cadillac - CTS-V Column mounted: Subaru - Outback Ferrari Lamborghini Ni
  3. BMW says it produces the ultimate driving machines. McLaren makes some of the finest driving machines for road use. Now, it seems the two brands could end up collaborating to build some exciting new electric vehicles. McLaren and BMW have reportedly signed a memorandum of understanding in March for the joint development of an electric sports car architecture. The two brands teaming up would make sense. Research and development costs these days are steep, as manufacturers abandon a century-plus of combustion engine development. Joint development deals — like the recent one announced betwee
  4. (Bloomberg) -- Sales of luxury cars in Singapore remain resilient despite the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, the Business Times reported Friday, citing data from the Land Transport Authority and automakers. Six luxury brands — Aston Martin Holdings, Bentley Motors Ltd., Ferrari NV, Automobili Lamborghini SPA, McLaren Automotive Ltd. and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd. — sold a total of 178 cars in the first nine months of 2020 versus 256 units for all of last year, according to the report. After adjusting for Singapore’s partial lockdown, the companies sold about 30 cars
  5. https://www.motor1.com/photo/5737672/2022-mclaren-artura-cabin-on-road/ The 2022 McLaren Artura was supposed to launch this fall in the US. However, the winter solstice has come and gone – and no Artura. There won’t be one until early July, according to a new Automotive News report. The chip shortage that has rocked the entire auto industry has finally hit McLaren, which is delaying the Artura’s launch. McLaren spokesperson Roger Ormisher confirmed the delay with the publication. This isn’t the Artura’s first hiccup it has suffered on its way to market. McLaren wanted to launch the s
  6. This video by Henry Catchpole of former Evo fame is great, especially with footage of the car's hot lap at the hands of a racing driver. You really get a sense of how this derestricted track toy behaves on the limit, and Henry himself goes through the details of what makes it so different — and special — from the "regular" GT3 car with said racing driver: He also brings up some of McLaren's more recent track specials, such as the P1 GTR and Senna GTR so out of these 3, which one is your favourite? I know none of us commenting here on the forums can afford them, but hey,
  7. Driver of McLaren 720s realise a car is a car, it can never fly 😳😂 https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/driver-taken-hospital-after-early-morning-crash-along-ecp 525cc210-79e0-47e1-a79a-fd243508c11d.MP4
  8. Earlier this week (Jul 7), a white McLaren 720S was spotted crashed into a row of plants along East Coast Parkway (ECP). Here's new video footage of the crash that just surfaced, via the perspective of a cam car witness: Driver lost control while trying to overtake The video footage here shows the white sports car which skidded from lane 3 to lane 1 while trying to overtake from the left side of the cam car. Close shave with Cam Car The cam car was fortunate enough to drive away unscathed, as the cam car driver was just a few meters behind when the McLaren
  9. Nissan GTR rear ended McLaren 720S The big size guy which i'm assuming to be driver of McLaren, looks like a father scolding his son (GTR Driver) HAHAHAHA! Photo taken from facebook page (SGRV)
  10. source: https://www.motortrend.com/news/2021-mclaren-elva-first-drive-review/ Let's get right to it: The 2021 McLaren Elva is really, truly, absolutely wonderful. I'm trying to recall a time I felt this smitten after driving a car. Porsche Speedster? Yeah, that's the most recent one, the Speedster being as close to perfection as it gets. The new 2021 McLaren Elva tickles the same spot and goes a bit deeper. It might not be closer to perfection, but it sails down a different, more elemental branch of driving. It's more eccentric, with more whimsy, more of a wag, and more mischief, and agai
  11. McLaren Sabre Makes Surprise Debut, Surpasses Senna With 824 HP source: https://www.motor1.com/news/461806/mclaren-sabre-supercar-debut/ Only 15 will be built, and they're exclusively for the US market. Recent spy shots and leaked images suggested the McLaren Sabre was on the cusp of a reveal. However, we didn't expect to see it like this. The hypercar is revealed, though the word comes to us not from McLaren, but through the automaker's Beverly Hills dealership. There's still quite a bit we don't know, and it's likely to stay that way since McLaren considers the Sabre a c
  12. Say hello to Lego's latest Technic model, an 830-piece remake of the McLaren Senna GTR. The model apes McLaren's famed attention to detail, sporting the actual car's beautiful aerodynamic curves, the same one-of-a-kind blue livery, as well as a V8 engine with moving pistons. And apparently, the same wicked doors that are a signature of the McLaren brand since the F1. Of course, just like all 75 examples of the real-life car, your Lego model will be exquisitely hand-built. The McLaren Senna GTR Lego model will launch globally on 1 January 2021 at LEGO.com and all p
  13. My Mac head of service sent this to me: "Hi mate we have Christmas Promotion. 720s Ride-On Its a good Christmas gift option for a child 3 to 6years old. Gives then a good start in their Super Car journey. Comes in McLaren Orange. Normal =$2473 Promo =$1897 Let me know if you like to take it up. Part due in 1st week December 2020 Thank you." I replied that the only 3 to 6 year old left in my family was me, and that was only emotionally speaking. 😂😂😂 Anyway, it's open to the public, so I promised him I'd spread the word. If you're interested, do reply h
  14. Supercar vs Hypercar — What’s the Difference? https://gearpatrol.com/2020/01/19/supercar-vs-hypercar/ It’s obvious to most anyone that a Corvette or Lamborghini are different than a Corolla. There are many terms thrown around to describe outrageous performance cars. But in the upper echelons of performance, things get muddy; often, we use terms like “supercar” and “hypercar” interchangeably while in practice they are two different types of cars. Supercar Hundreds of horsepower, million-dollar price tags, lap times that make most race cars blush — these are supercars.
  15. Shocked to learn that he had passed away. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48345660 Three-time Formula 1 world champion Niki Lauda has died at the age of 70. The legendary Austrian, one of the best-known figures in motor racing, took the title for Ferrari in 1975 and 1977 and McLaren in 1984. For many, he will be remembered for his remarkable recovery and return to racing after being badly burned in a crash in the 1976 German Grand Prix. Lauda, who underwent a lung transplant in August, "passed away peacefully" on Monday, his family said. After his career as a racing drive
  16. Klipsch Audio and McLaren Racing Unveil New Headphone Series Source: https://hypebeast.com/2020/1/klipsch-mclaren-headphones-earbuds-collaboration Innovative audio company Klipsch and progressive automotive manufacturer McLaren have come together to put out a small capsule of headphones for both audiophiles and racing fans alike. The collaboration consists of three prodcuts: the T10 True Wireless smar earphones, the Over-Ear Active Noise Cancelling headphones and the T5 Sport True Wireless earphones. All feature Klipsch’s advance technologies and quality materials t
  17. With the McLaren 720S variant a couple of years old and probably halfway into its product life cycle, there is talk that the British company is working on a Longtail (LT) version of it. Little is known about the car but according to Piston Heads, the new supercar will be launched next year and follow in the footsteps of the other Longtails a.k.a the 600LT and 675LT. Of course, the new car will be lighter and feature the use of lightweight materials such as carbon fibre. It will also likely get new a aerodynamic parts, a revised suspension setup and a refreshed interior. Power
  18. McLaren 600LT by MSO revealed ahead of Pebble Beach debuthttps://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/mclaren-600lt-mso-revealed-ahead-pebble-beach-debut McLaren will be heading to this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with a bespoke version of its new 600LT. Showcasing a raft of personalisation options from the Woking brand’s MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division, the concept follows on from the first public outing of the 600LT at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month. Featuring MSO Bespoke Stealth Grey paintwork, the 600LT receives a number of carbonfibre upgrades, i
  19. This is the 250mph McLaren Speedtail. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/supercars/250mph-mclaren-speedtail Sleek, isn’t it? Long and low and lean and, well, sleek. A streamliner. This is it, the McLaren Speedtail, the car formerly known as BP23 and likely forever known as the spiritual successor to the F1. Three seats, stratospheric top speed and a price tag that’s similarly out of this world. Facts, though, have been in short supply. And when we’re starved of facts, we feed off myths. The rumour mill spooled up with tales of a 300mph target, of Chiron
  20. hi, just installed an active sub below my seat. than i realised that my front speakers are too weak to be blasted hard becos they are stock. so i went to upgrade the stock speakers to hertz speakers. after this, i was told that my stock head player has no power to drive my expensive front speakers to the optimal performance. and now, looking around for a amp to power up. after spending so much $$$ and time on all these upgrading, all we wanted now is to enjoy the music with good quality sound. so what media do you all use to play your music? is the SQ from a MP3 good enough? where can we
  21. McLaren built a $1 million hypercar that it says is unlike any other vehicle in the world http://www.businessinsider.sg/mclarens-senna-hypercar-pictures-details-2017-12/?r=US&IR=T The McLaren Senna hypercar debuted on Saturday. It’s named after legendary Formula One racer Ayrton Senna. McLaren will on build only 500 Sennas with a price tag of $1 million each. The Senna is powered by a 789 horsepower twin-turbo V8. Ayrton Senna is arguably the greatest driver in Formula One history and one who made an indelible mark on McLaren. The Brazilian spent six of his 11 seasons in F1 with
  22. http://jalopnik.com/rowan-atkinson-just-sold-his-twice-crashed-mclaren-f1-f-1710189175 A select few rich, famous and amazing people have been privileged enough to call themselves McLaren F1 owners, but arguably the most famous among their number was British comedian Rowan “Mr. Bean” Atkinson. That’s because he crashed his, twice. Apparently that didn’t hurt the F1’s resale value much. CNBC reports that Atkinson has sold the dark burgundy car for a cool £8 million, about $12.2 million. He originally purchased the car in 1997 for as much as £640,000. While Atkinson is now sadly F1-less

  24. I must admit I am not really interested in bikes but the sheer beauty of this $30,000 road bike sure caught my attention. The S-Works McLaren Tarmac, a joint effort by McLaren and Specialized Bicycle Components, was probably born for those who seek the best. Utilising McLaren's knowledge and expertise in carbon fibre, the S-Works McLaren Tarmac's frame plus fork weight is reduced by 9 to 11 percent with the help of an exclusively developed proprietary carbon layup process as compared to the standard S-Works Tarmac. The CLX40R tubular wheels (which is 90g lighter than the standard set o
