McLaren P1 GTR

It's been a while since we were teased about a radical P1 and McLaren delivered, it's their track-ready P1 GTR. So let's start with the numbers, power output of 1000HP, which is from the both electrical and combustion engines. Turning it into a track-toy, has widened the front track by 80mm and the car sits lower by 50mm. McLaren states that they reduced the overall weight by 50kg, due to motorsport solutions. 
 
Side windows are made of racing polycarbonate, the glass roof has been replaced by carbon fiber, the same treatment happened to the engine cover.

McLaren P1 GTR


"Best driver's car in the world on track", anyone? At least this is what McLaren aims to do with this model. Unveiled as a concept study at Pebble Beach this weekend, the GTR features a tweaked V8 3.8-liter twin-turbo mid-mounted engine and the electric motor and managed to bump output of the hybrid system from 916 PS (674 kW) to 1,000 PS (736 kW).

The car has also been aerodynamic adjusted, with a fixed ride height, front splitter and carbon canards, redesigned skirts and carbon spoiler - with hydraulic DRS.

The Race - McLaren P1 vs Bugatti Veyron Vitesse

 
The ways of Photoshop are limitless, combine that with imagination and creativity and you can expect great results.
 
Ever since I saw this picture, I knew I had to make it more dynamic, angle was right, position and background as well.
 
Veyron needed a lower stance, bigger wheels and a more popping color. The McLaren had everything, enhanced the rear with a backfire and custom plates for both the cars, because details matter - how about a "lowered" window for the Bugatti?

Lamborghini Veneno VS Ferrari LaFerrari VS Mclaren P1

Not new "news", but now that the show is over and the "cat's out of the bag", have we thought about how they compare with each other and what this means for the direction of the 3 big supercar makers? Just a while ago, at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show, Lamborghini released their mighty Veneno, which they only plan on making 3 of, Ferrari released the... LaFerrari (creative name, huh?), which they're making only 500 pieces of, and last but not least, Mclaren released the P1.

F1 Singapore - RACE

Sebastian Vettel is the winner of the 2012 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX.

After another unlucky Hamilton's race, Sebastian Vettel managed to finish first in the longest race in 2012 calendar. Safety car was deployed two times - first time in lap 33 after Narain Karthikeyan crashed his car in the wall, second time in lap 41 when Michael Schumacher made a rookie mistake and drove his car in Vergne's Torro Rosso. While it was pretty dangerous situation, Michael haven't earned one race ban like Romain Grosjean in Belgium.
