  • McLaren made it clear when the 720S was released--this thing is $@#%$#% fast. It's got 710 brake horsepower and weighs next to nothing thanks to the Woking automaker's Carbon Fiber Monocage II construction, resulting in a blistering 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 212 MPH. While all of that is good and well, you'd expect a car with about 300 more horsepower to spank it in a roll-race. But as you can see when the Macca took on this Heffner-tuned, 1,000 horsepower Ford GT, that just isn't the case.When things kick off with the rev battle, it's hard to tell who might come out on top. While the forged-in-iron American V-8 sounds radical with its set of snails mounted midship, the McLaren's 4.0L has the type of rumble that lets you know it's up to something.In the first of two races, the McLaren takes off after the initial shift. Even though it's at a major disadvantage as far as power goes, the 720S' sub-3,200 pound curb weight is ..

Future expectations were positive with a stronger sense of optimism.

  • VENEZUELA: Constituent Assembly Calls Up Anti-imperialist Front Against U.S. The Venezuelan government will analyze the creation of an anti-imperialist Patriotic Front following the threats and sanctions applied by the United States government, said the second vice-president of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC), Isa?as Rodr?guez. "It is necessary to create this organization, with no specific colors, parties or individualities, because it is to defend the nation from this attack against our people by the far-right wing," said Rodr?guez, quoted by the Venezuelan News Agency.

  • Goodwood Revival may have ended over a week ago, but the 3-day event left us wanting more. One question on our lips is, "How do rare, 7 and 8-figure vintage race cars prepare for this straining track day?" The answer to avoiding nasty, incredibly expensive crashes is of course plenty of track preparation and testing. The Car LabYoutube channel posted a video on Monday showing the behind-the-scenes of historic races like Goodwood, where the participant vehicles are tested extensively. This particular session happened at the Dutch Zandvoort track, where multiple rare Ferraris and a few other vintage racers stretched their legs before the big race weekend. While Zandvoort recently acquired a tragic reputation, it's a handsome track that's perfect for these old cars' capabilities. The track is also home to the Historic Grand Prix, an event held at the beginning of September with a similar premise to Goodwood Revival, and one that these cars will also take part in. Watching..
