Unlike the kit available for the Aventador-V, Vorsteiner’s McLaren kit is much more subdued in presence. It’s first commercial offering since the legendary McLaren F1, the British automaker has stunned the supercar world with 12C.
In 2012, McLaren debuted their latest hypercar, the P1, as a successor to the iconic McLaren F1 from the late 1990s. It was developed with one goal in mind — to be the best driver’s car ever. The P1 received praise from automotive journalists and enthusiasts almost as quickly as its 0-60 time. However, the engineers at McLaren must have sat down one day, enjoying a cup of tea and a biscuit, and said, “How can we make the best driver’s car even better on the track?” After two years since the release of the P1, thousands of man-hours and probably countless cups of English Breakfast Tea, McLaren has released a track-only version of the P1: the McLaren P1 GTR.
#TeamRevv had the chance to catch up with a group of adrenaline seeking individuals and their cars on the sixth installment of the goldRush Rally that made its way through Denver on Monday June 2nd at the Four Seasons hotel.
When Rush hits theaters nationwide on September 28, moviegoers will be seeing the dramatic tale of the 1976 Formula 1 season and the legendary battle between Nikki Lauda and James Hunt. Polar opposites both on an off the track, their differing approaches to racing and life cast a spectacular backdrop for a season that dealt with success, tragedy, and a literal return from the ashes.
To help educate racing enthusiasts who perhaps don’t know a lot about Formula 1, especially the cars from the 1970s, we would like to introduce you to the other stars of Rush: Ferrari’s 312 T2 and McLaren’s M23. Thanks to a more open set of regulations for racing back in 1976 (and designs truly conceived on paper), the cars really took on their own identity. Let’s take a look at what set these two legends of racing apart.
Ahead of it's official debut at the 83rd International Geneva Motor Show, McLaren has released details and a set of stunning images to show the world-renowned vehicle in all its glory. 0-100 km/h in under 3 seconds, 0-200 km/h in under 7 seconds, and 0-300 km/h in less than 17 seconds! That's 5 seconds faster than the McLaren F1 road car.
