Just call it the Las Vegas Tire Fire.
A few months back, we had the chance to take Ford's 2013 Shelby GT500 out for a spin. It turned out to be so much fun that we had to ask for it for a second weekend. Not because it handles well, not because it's particularly comfortable—but simply because, with 662 horsepower and 631 lb-ft of torque, it is utterly, insanely, hilariously overpowered.
Also reveals a 9,000 rpm redline. Oooooh...
McLaren's P1 supercar—the car that may just redefine the nature of production car performance, if the rumors are true—will be revealed in all its glory at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday, March 5th, at 5:15am Eastern Standard Time. But since we car nuts are notoriously impatient, they're giving us another sneak peek at it now—including our first glimpse of the interior.
The enthusiast's bargain-basement Porsche is reborn.
Most 911s are faster and Boxsters let more UV radiation fall your way, but when it comes to maximum Porsche performance for your dollar, you can't beat the Cayman. And the second-generation of Porsche's mid-engined hardtop sports car debuted at the L.A. Auto Show.
But you can see the new logo right now! Excited?
See that emblem at the top of the post? That's the logo for the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette—Generation C7. It's not that different, but the car itself will be.
And it will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show.
Power is not in and of itself good or bad. It's all in how it's used. The McLaren MP4-12C X-1 one-off was an example of the great power of McLaren's Special Operations group used for very, very bad ends. But the upcoming P12 supercar, previewed above in a brand-new image just released by McLaren, should be very much the opposite.
