McLaren P1 Supercar Pictures and Details



Yellow McLaren P1 Hypercar

At last, the McLaren P1 has been unveiled in its full glory. We now have the full scoop on the British supercar’s specifications.

The P1 is powered by a hybrid drivetrain that consists of a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine with 737 horsepower and 531 lb-ft. (720 Nm) of torque, connected to an electric motor that adds an additional 179-hp and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm). A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is used to transfer a total output of 916-hp and 660 lb-ft. of torque to the rear wheels, allowing the track-bred supercar to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.8 seconds, to 100 mph (160 km/h) in 5.5 seconds and to 200 mph (322 km/h) in 20 seconds. Top speed is electronically-limited at 217.5 mph (350 km/h), which is notably lower than the legendary F1’s 240 mph (386 km/h).

To rein in its immense power, the P1 employs a braking system that features a new type of carbon ceramic disc that had only previously been used in outer-space. Stronger than conventional carbon ceramic, the material used in its construction dissipates heat more effectively, providing the system with exceptional stopping and cooling capability.

The P1 has a drag coefficient of just 0.34 and can generate 600 kg (1,322 lbs) of downforce, which is five times more than the MP4-12C. Its lightweight construction includes a carbon fiber chassis that weighs 100 kg (220 lbs) — the lightest ever installed on a road car. Overall weight comes in at a measly 1,400 kg (3,086 lbs).

The P1 can be driven in a variety of modes that allow it to be powered by either by the engine and electric motor together or solely by the low emissions electric motor (E mode). In E-mode, the supercar can travel more than 6 miles (10 km) with electric-only power. When the battery runs out of charge, the petrol engine automatically activates to maintain driving and recharge the battery.

As a driver’s car, the P1 comes with only a handful of luxury amenities — satellite navigation, climate control and a premium audio system. With production limited to only 375 units, it will be one rare exotic, even in enthusiast circles. Prices will start at £866,000 in the UK and $1,150,000 in the U.S. (approximately €1,004,800).

Ford Mustang Gets Grabber Lime Paint In Tribute To St. Paddy’s Day



Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Grabber Lime

Saint Patrick approves! Your friends will be green with envy at your.

To celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day, Ford has introduced several new exterior colors for the 2020 Mustang, including Grabber Lime.

The new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will also be offered with the high-impact green hue, complete with a metallic finish that causes the shade to change depending on sunlight. It draws inspiration from vintage Mustang colors of the 1970s is said to look more potent than kryptonite.

We think it suits the Shelby GT500 just fine, seeing as it’s the most powerful street-legal Ford vehicle to date. A supercharged 5.2 liter V8 that produces more than 700 horsepower helps it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds.

“It’s lime green on steroids,” said Barb Whalen, Ford color and materials manager. “This color traces back to a Mustang heritage color while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy.”

Grabber Lime is just one of the new colors added to the 2020 Mustang lineup, with Twister Orange, Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic being the others. Their addition is part of broader set of updates for Ford’s popular sixth generation muscle car.

New Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Has A 180 MPH (290 KM/H) Top Speed



New 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500

As much of a king the GT500 is, it won’t be the king of speed.

The is the most powerful road-going car ever made by Ford, but it’s not the fastest. A factory-installed speed limiter restricts its top speed.

Car and Driver was able to learn that the Blue Oval’s ultimate pony car will be quipped with a governor that limits top speed to 180 mph (290 km/h), meaning it won’t go as fast as top versions of the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger.

The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is powered by a supercharged 5.2L V8 that produces more than 700 horsepower, allowing it to go from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in the low 3 second range and cover the quarter mile in less than 11 seconds. Engineers likely chose to improve handling at the expense of top speed, tweaking aerodynamics for maximum downforce and fine-tuning the suspension and steering.

We think driving enthusiasts will have a thrilling experience at reasonable speeds.

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 goes on sale in summer 2019. Do you have an issue with its top speed?

It’s an unbridled love affair with carbon fiber.

Not long after taking the wraps off at the Detroit Auto Show, Toyota has revealed a TRD Concept that shows off some of the accessories from Toyota Racing Development possibly coming to the Japanese sports car.

Unveiled at the Osaka Auto Messe aftermarket show, the Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD is fitted with many new carbon fiber parts to increase downforce and reduce lift. The front spoiler, side skirts, and rear spoiler and spats are all crafted from carbon fiber, while a carbon fiber door garnish replaces the stock faux vent to reduce turbulence of the airflow over the rear end.

The exterior is finished in a muted silver color that compliments the carbon fiber parts nicely, while unique 19-inch wheels highlight the four corners.

Unfortunately, TRD made no upgrades under the hood. Power is provided by the stock Supra’s turbocharged 3.0L inline-six, generating the same ol’ 335 hp and 365 lb-ft. of torque.

It’s not known if or when these carbon fiber parts and new wheels will be available, and whether they will remain exclusive to the Japanese market like many TRD parts in the past. Either way, share your thoughts about the Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD in the comments below.
