Thread: McLaren top trumps

    Genuinely thought the original press shots were a piss take, or a rip off copy, but the one above looks like a different car - and how big is that rear wing!

    I always thought a darker colour would suit it. Or maybe a bright, flat colour. That black one looks great

    It is not a timeless looker, but if you want to go proper fast, what is these days?

    I suspect that seeing it up close reveals lots of details that excite, a joy for the armchair aero expert.

    From the feedback that I’ve seen, the real-world buyers of McLaren’s that have had proper exposure to the car at events, really, really like it and placed their orders. I guess that is all that matters really. But just not in that minging McLaren orange. It is horrid.

    • befriend an owner
    • become one of those wanky youtube video twats and blag a drive
    • become a proper car journo and after many years of graft you might get lucky
    • win big on the lottery
    If the whole world was filled with just animals and David Attenborough, it would be a beautiful place. Unfortunately, it's been overrun by 7.6-billion assholes.

    Worked for me!
    The thing I miss most about leaving McLaren is driving them occasionally.

    Whoever it is that frequents the A27 in a prototype might of been late into the office this morning. As it was sat at the side of the A27 with its hazards on.

    Usually see it around Lewes.

    Can anyone shed any light on what it is. I would say it might be a 675lt type replacement.
