Hypercar Icons – 1969 McLaren M6B GT with 2014 McLaren 650S at The Quail

The McLaren M6B GT is perhaps even more important to the foundation bedrock of McLaren Automotive than the all-conquering F1. In many ways, the latest McLaren Automotive division is the realization of founder Bruce McLaren’s dream of a supercar operation that is enhanced and supported by the racing team. 35 or so years on from the first prototype M6GT, the dream is more than some future longing. It is real and thriving with the latest 650S and P1 cars building a devoted following among hypercar fans all over the world. Even among those who do not follow Formula One closely, …

World Debut in 55 Photos – 2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo

Shortly after the wraps came off this all-new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo for the first time at The Quail on Friday, we shook hands with the always-handsome CEO Stephan Winkelmann. Mr. Winkelmann was fresh from taking perhaps 20 photos with admiring fans in front of the latest hypercar masterpiece from Sant’Agata when the lightbulb of an idea hit me. I instantly shared the thought with Mr. Winkelmann and earned a rare smile and laugh from the global automotive superstar: “You should release a pop song! A dance mix for the club, with engines revving and all the names of various …

UPDATED with 99 high-res, real-life photos 8.17.14 The most striking things about the FT-1 in person are its captivating beauty, extremely long-hooded proportions, and intense aero detailing.

McLaren P1 Mission Monterey is Million-Dollar, Overnight Hypercar Street Marketing Brilliance

Just parked nicely in a street spot: this McLaren P1 is worth more than a million dollars. During the brief time we spent snapping a few hello photos, more than six other full vehicles full of showgoers stopped, parked, and took similar photos of this rare and all-new hypercar. This is cultivating a legacy for McLaren Automotive. Conspicuously absent altogether from day one of Pebble Beach is Ferrari SpA. Sure, there are old Ferrari’s and many owner cars. But no official representation. A sign of arrogance? Or complete lack of market sizing and sales promotion from Ferrari? This 24-hour McLaren …
