McLaren Introduces the 750S
As something we've learned the easy way, McLaren sticks to the tried and true formula of being fueled by their successful ventures and bringing them to the street for their fans and tried and true enthusiasts. That's a big deal that I think many big manufacturers miss is allowing people who can't afford the car to dream about driving one and sharing information about them. The truth is these brands have a lot more love than they have buyers. Who doesn't get excited about track based power and stunning looks. Its why F1 continues to be a well loved sport and McLaren is a natural extension of that ideal. So check it out and tell us what you think about the 750S!
The supercar SUV market has exploded in the last few years. Led by a market that has demanded them and finally automakers are listening shooting sales skyward and showing that these vehicles have a place in our performance community. The truth is they are exciting, have a place for coffee cups, and make a trip to the grocery store a journey of epicness. It turns everything small into a big deal and everyone can get on board. Check out this Journey through Sicily and you tell us what you think.
McLaren is known for performance and it continues that success on the track. It spent much of its time taking qualifying and standing on the podium.
The Artura GT4 qualified in top 10 and finished 6th place on its debut in Daytona for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge race. Both cars finished the four hour race. The 720S GT3 took GTD class podium with Inception Racing.
The demand for McLaren race cars remain strong and McLaren will indeed have a lot of work keeping up, especially if they continue their success.

Ford Introduces GT3 Mustang
After watching a great deal of racing I never thought I'd see a Ford Mustang that really caught my attention. That is until I saw the Ford GT3 introduced in the last few days. I could talk for an hour on the car, but I'll just let Ford Motorsports speak for me with this video. Enjoy.
Before I leave, can a Mustang be a Supercar? You tell me...
Countach Comes Out!
Officially our first show out for the year is the Babson Auto Show. It's more like a car meet in that cars drive out, hang out and show off their potential. It still garners a good deal of attention and a number of high powered cars in attendance. We cover it for the supercar presence and it definitely delivers in that area. From a Lamborghini Countach to Mclaren and Aston Martin the show had representation in just about every sector. We can even appreciate the wide-body Subaru parked next to a Skyline. So it was a great event and we love to share it with you, so check it out!
Porsche GT2RS Clubsport 25
Our friend Karl shows off his awesome vehicle and explains why it's so special.
When Ferrari unveiled an SUV the world shuddered. Could the mighty be falling to pressure? It certainly seemed so as they went with the plug in hybrids, but Ferrari wants you to understand that they still believe in passion. Passion for the drive, the experience, the thing that makes Ferrari what it is and that's not just a track experience.
I think that's a great move for Ferrari. It seemed in the early '90s they felt their customers were an afterthought to just building a faster car, but once they were challenged to that crown by a street car they decided to embrace a more consumer friendly experience. That experience paid off in spades as we dawned a new generation and today the experience is deeply rooted in the past, as well as the future. Ferrari drivers are, in fact, Ferrari loyal. Something not well known in their segment.
So how do you sell a crowd of loyal Ferrari owners that there is a new Ferrari experience? Simply put, you tell them it's a new experience. The Purosangue isn't an outsourced SUV, it's made by Ferrari. It, by definition, is uniquely Ferrari and that design concept may have evolved over time, but even when we've had our doubts, they truly offer a customer experience that is unique to the brand.
Don't take our word for it, check out the video and tell us what you think about the future of Ferrari.
Lamborghini Rolls Out Revuelto
Barring the pronunciation, everything the new flagship Lamborghini will be has been released. Today they've shown off the look of the car and it's come with mixed reviews. Many love the performance and architecture, but there's a split on the presentation. It has a very clear Sian feel to the vehicle and it's not shocking that the underlying frame and drive-line were first tested via the Sian application.
What is clear is that the purpose of the Revuelto is to invigorate buyers to accept the new hybrid system as an incredibly powerful platform and worthy as a flagship position. So the question is, does it do that? There's no doubt that the classic V12 is present, which is exactly what we wanted to see and gives many the feeling that this engine will be with us for at least the next 10 years, at least until it's banned outright. The truth is, it's simply a reprieve to get past the time it will take to develop an all electric worthy of the Lamborghini name.
As long as it has a V12 it should see sales and the new dual clutch system has been desired by Lamborghini owners for some time, so there are those that will purchase it just for that bonus, but continued input on how it performs on the streets and the feeling of those that drive it will be important and key to its acceptance.
These are all hurdles the Aventador didn't have to overcome. It had the added value of new carbon fiber, the first new engine for Lamborghini with the V12 and even more horsepower than ever before. Everyone was on board with it. That isn't true for this new platform. There are stark critics too the new platform, but they have to concede that it is indeed stays pure to Lamborghini design. It's cutting edge, a V12, very fast, and made for the streets.
We'll keep an eye on it until the final word comes in and have a show for should you buy down the road.

Running of the Bulls - Flashback
Back in 2018 I was invited to join Lamborghini Boston as the passenger in the Lambo Huracan race car. This was before Lamborghini's main area truly supported these types of runs, so it was supported at the dealership level. Even so it was attended by a great deal of vehicles, including a Miura, which was an incredible car to drive with. The next step in the journey would be to drive, police escorted, from the dealership to the Tutto Italiano Italian automaker show. An exclusively Italian car show that was the toast of the town every year. It is still held to this day at the Larz Anderson auto museum, the oldest automotive museum in the United States on their park grounds in Brookline Massachusetts (if you haven't gone to visit you should).
It was an incredibly fun event that was actually very last minute for me, which means that although I had my camera equipment I wasn't ready to use my camera equipment. My car was stuck at the dealership and I was suddenly off to the races. That meant the quality wasn't the best, but I still wanted to cover it. At editing I wasn't happy and just put up Short versions of the video that didn't do very well.
After reviewing these clips I considered that they weren't as bad as I thought and even the ones that were deserve to be shared. So for the first time I've decided to merge the videos and share the completed run with you. I ask that you forgive the bad quality at parts. Hope you like it and let me know what you think in the comments!
