PostHeaderIcon Make Sure You Abide By Dodge’s Rules Before You Buy A Challenger SRT Demon

Suppose you already have a reservation for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and you’re just waiting for that precious call from your local Dodge dealer. It’s hard not to get excited about getting your hands on one of the most anticipated muscle cars to be released in recent history. Exciting times, isn’t it? Well, before you get a little too excited about the possibilities, Dodge is dousing that excitement with a three-page Demon Disclosure Form that you’ll have to abide by before you can bring your Challenger Demons home.

The document, acquired by Jalopnik, is essentially a “terms and conditions” waiver that Dodge wants every Challenger Demon buyer to sign, effectively waiving their rights to sue in the event they don’t follow any of the conditions laid out by the automaker. Among the important points that Dodge indicated in the form pertains to passenger seats. Specifically, the form says that “if the vehicle is not factory equipped with a passenger seat, customer shall never attempt to install a passenger seat because the passenger will not be properly protected.” Another important reminder included in the form is a warning for owners never to use “any “Track-Use” features, functions, equipment or parts on public roads or any other prohibited area.”There are a lot more conditions laid out in the form, and almost all of which were put in to lay out the simple fact that the Challenger SRT is effectively a street-legal drag car and owners should use it with utmost care and caution.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Helps Prevent Dealer Mark-Ups on Challenger SRT Demon

As Honda deals with the growing discontent among its consumer base on the aggressive mark-ups dealerships are putting on the Honda Civic Type R, Dodge is determined not to irate its consumers by instituting a unique dealership ordering process for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The process itself was designed to prevent the experience prospective Civic Type R customers are going through as they see the prices of the hot hatch skyrocket to almost double Honda’s own asking price.

A big part of Dodge’s allocation plan for the Challenger Demon is to place priority on dealerships willing to sell at or below the automaker’s suggested retail price. Specifically, these dealerships stand to get priority scheduling and receive lower serial-numbered cars as opposed to those who are putting mark-ups on the price of the highly sought-after muscle car. On top of that, dealerships who have sold more than one SRT Hellcat in the last 12 months are the only ones who are eligible to receive a Challenger Demon. And to make it in even more difficult for these dealers, those who meet the previous requirement will be allocated a certain number of models depending on how their sales performance for the Charger, Challenger, and SRT Hellcats are. As for those dealerships planning to sell the SRT Demon above the automaker’s MSRP, they’ll get theirs “after priority production is completed.”

PostHeaderIcon The Hennessey Venom F5 Wants To Destroy The Bugatti Chiron

When a car company decides to name its hypercar after the most powerful class of tornado in the world, there’s a certain level of expectation that needs to be met. Fortunately, that company is Hennessey and it’s got big plans for its new creation, the Venom F5. We’ve all heard a lot about the Venom F5 and the company’s plan for the car to become the fastest and most powerful production car in the world. But now, John Hennessey and his boys are making it clear for all the world to hear: the Venom F5 is coming to eat the Bugatti Chiron.

Challenging the Chiron is a tall order in it of itself, but if there’s one company that’s proven to be up to the task of taking down the mighty Bugatti, it’s Hennessey. That sentiment doesn’t come with a tinge of hyperbole either because Hennessey has already done it in the past when the Venom F5’s predecessor, the Venom GT, broke the Veyron Super Sport’s production car top speed record when it clocked a top speed of 270.3 mph. Issues with its “production status” prevented the Venom GT from claiming the Veyron Super Sport’s record, but regardless of what the record books say, the supercar did break 270 mph. Now, Hennessey wants the Venom F5 to make the Chiron look like a bow-legged tortoise by comparison with a goal of approaching a top speed of around 300 mph. Say what you will about Hennessey’s ambitions, but it’s hard to dismiss it because the automaker has already proven so many people wrong with the Venom GT. Now that it’s the F5’s turn, look out, Bugatti.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Is All Out Of Regera Supercars

In case you’re in the final stages of formalizing a payment plan to pay for the $1.9 million Koenigsegg Regera supercar, you might need to call a halt to the proceedings. Your luck just ran out. See, Koenigsegg only produced 80 examples of the Regera, and all are now accounted for. Word of the “disappointing” development comes straight from Koenigsegg, with a post on the company blog. The car Koenigsegg describes as a “tour de force of technology” is officially sold out.

It’s an impressive achievement to sell $152 million worth of Regeras in such a short amount of time. Remember, the 1,500-horsepower supercar was introduced just 15 months ago at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Considering its price and outright exclusivity, it’s amazing to think that all 80 units now have buyers. There is some good news, though, if you’re still in denial about missing out on the cars. Koenigsegg didn’t identify those who scored one, but it did indicate the possibility of finding any of the 80 Regeras in local dealerships. That could mean that an unspecified number of these supercars were bought to be resold. You’ll definitely have to pay a bigger premium for these cars than you intended, but hey, that’s the price you have to pay for waiting longer than you should have to get yours.

PostHeaderIcon Feast Your Eyes On The World’s Fastest Go-Kart

They may not have the same appeal as actual track-day racers like the Ariel Atom, BAC Mono, or KTM X-Bow, but go-karts can be as fun to drive as any of these high-priced machines, and the cost of doing so doesn’t run as high. So, it’s with great excitement that I present the Daymak C5 Blast Ultimate go-kart, dubbed as the fastest of its kind in the world.

So, how fast is the C5 Blast Ultimate exactly? According to its maker Daymak, the C5 Blast Ultimate can hit 60 mph in just 1.5 seconds. By comparison, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon can cover the same ground in 2.3 seconds while the Porsche 918 Spyder can do the same in 2.4 seconds. In other words, prepare to make that Jeremy Clarkson face when you’re riding this devil of a machine. The prototype go-kart may not look like a speed demon by its appearance, but it comes with 24 kWh lithium battery that powers a 48-volt brushless DC motor and 12 (yes, 12!) – Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) motors that are each powered by a 5000mAH battery. Daymak doesn’t say how much power the powertrain releases, but if it can hit 60 mph from a standstill position faster than it takes for me to type two words from my keyboard, this go-kart is something that’s worth keeping an eye on.

PostHeaderIcon Is The Infiniti Q60 Project Black S Headed For A Production Run?

When Infiniti presented the Q60 Project Black S at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, it was tipped to be nothing more than a concept vehicle, a muscle-flexing opportunity of sorts to show what Nissan’s premium brand is capable of. Three months later, the Q60 Project Black S is back in the news, only this time it’s been loaded with appropriate Formula One technology that’s opening the door to the possibility of a production version in the future.

Does it mean then that we’ll see more of the Q60 Project Black S soon? That’s still a matter of debate, but the recent return of the concept sporting specially developed Pirelli P Zero rubber tires is an indication that something’s brewing within Infiniti that’s giving execs reason to reconsider its position on the 500-horsepower coupe concept. Even Tommaso Volpe, the head decision-maker of Infiniti’s motorsport division, isn’t shutting the door on the concept’s production future. “Pirelli’s input and knowledge, both motorsport and automotive, will be invaluable,” he said, referring to Infiniti exploring the feasibility of the Q60 Project Black S. It’s easy to get optimistic, especially with all the activity surrounding the concept these days. But like everything else, it might be best to not get those hopes up just yet. Remember, we all know what Infiniti’s recent history with these things has been. Shout out to the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge. We’re still waiting for you.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-AMG C63

AMG began meddling with the C-Class in 1995 — one year after the C-Class debuted — when it released the C36 AMG and its 268-horsepower V-6. The 1998 model year brought about the release of the C43 AMG, which featured a larger V-8 engine rated at 302 ponies. AMG then followed that up with the 349-horsepower C32 AMG in 2002, and then with the 362-horsepower C55 AMG in 2005. Finally, in 2008, the C63 AMG sent the sedan into 450-horsepower territory with a huge 6.2-liter V-8 tweaked to generate 451 horses. With the standard 2015 C-Class having arrived in dealerships in early 2014, Mercedes-Benz is rolling out a brand-new iteration of the AMG-prepped C63.This time around dubbed Mercedes-AMG C63, with the Germans dropping the Benz moniker from the official name, the new-generation vehicle marks the beginning of a new era for the sedan.

Much like its predecessor did in 2008, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 gets a brand-new engine in the form of a biturbo, 4.0-liter V-8. The unit is identical with the one previously launched in the AMG GT sports car and comes not with just more horsepower, but with improved fuel efficiency as well. Read on for the full details surrounding AMG’s new high-performance compact.

Update 5/26/2017:The Mercedes C-Class is up for a mid-cycle update, and now we’re finally getting the first look at the facelifted version of the C63. The spy shots still show some camo, but give us an idea of what to expect later this year when the updated C-Class makes its debut. Check out the spy shots section below to hear about what we know so far.

PostHeaderIcon Here’s How the Mazda Miata’s Retractable Hardtop Works

So the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is here – hallelujah! This is the hard-top model Miata loyalists have been wanting for four generations now. The RF, or Retractable Fastback, combines the closed-roof quietness and all-year functionality mixed directly with an open-air driving experience on warmer days. But how did Mazda squeeze a folding hard-top into the impossibly small Miata?

The answer: very smartly. In fact, the mechanical bits and electric motors that operate the top, along with the actual aluminum top section and rear glass, all fold neatly into the space already reserved for the conventional soft top. That’s impressive.

What’s more, the Miata RF only compromises 0.1 cubic feet of trunk space over the soft-top model. And no, your luggage runs zero risk of getting smashed by the retracting mechanicals. The trunk is completely separate from the top’s storage compartment. Of course, don’t expect to haul home a bulk purchase of mega-roll toilet paper; the trunk only has 4.6 cubic feet of space.

Operating the top only takes about 13 seconds. A dash-mounted toggle switch does the deed. The car just has to be rolling below six mph. Want to see it in action? Keep reading for the full step-by-step process.

PostHeaderIcon Maybe You Won't Have to Sell Your Soul to Afford the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Dodge drove us crazy and practically milked the debut of the Dodge Challenger Demon to death through a long series of teaser videos that spanned across the first three months of the year. Then, the day of reckoning was upon us, and the fastest production muscle car ever was finally revealed. Packing a 6.2-liter V-8 with a 2.7-liter supercharger that makes 14.5 psi of boost, a factory transmission brake, a stripped down interior, and a thirst for high-octane fuel, the Demon promises to be the Dodge that we’ll be talking about through the turn of the decade. Hell, it can hit 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and 100 mph in 5.1 seconds. A quarter mile comes in at 9.65 seconds at 140 mph – not bad for a car that weighs 4,200 pounds, right? After all, it can beat a $1.4 million Ferrari. But, it does raise one serious questions: Just how much will pure evil cost you?

There’s no official word as of yet, but Road & Track caught up with Dodge boss, Tim Kuniskis, at the New York Auto Show and got him to give us a little hint. Again, it isn’t much to go by, but according to Kuniskis, it will be priced above the Hellcat (obviously) but “it’s gonna be well below six figures.” That’s a pretty big deal considering many were expecting a price tag somewhere around $100,000.

PostHeaderIcon Maximum Evil – What Is The Dodge Demon's Top Speed?

Unless you’ve been hiding under a proverbial rock for the last few weeks, you’re most likely familiar with the specs for the newly released Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Just in case, here’s a quick refresher – 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque from a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 running on 100-octane race fuel. 0-to-60 mph in 2.3 seconds. 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat. 9.65 seconds at 140 mph in the quarter mile. 3-foot wheelies off the line. Dodge is quite clear on the matter – the Demon was built to do one job very, very well – traverse the quarter-mile run as quickly as possible while maintaining some semblance of street legality. At this point, it’s obvious this beast-mobile is quick, but there’s one tidbit of info Dodge has conveniently left out of the conversation thus far – how fast is it? To find out, we pulled out our calculator and did a little thought experiment.

Speculating on the top speed of a car like the Demon is actually a pretty complicated proposition, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy answer, here it is – 168 mph. That’s the maximum-rated velocity for the Demon’s Nitto NT05R drag radials, which means that’s pretty much the car’s top speed if you don’t swap out the rubber.

But let’s presume you did change the tires – given ideal conditions and a long enough track, how fast could the really Demon go? Read on to find out.

PostHeaderIcon If you Missed the Chance to Get a 2017 Shelby GT350 Mustang, We've got Good News for You!

After a 42-year hiatus, Ford brought the GT350 nameplate back into play for the fifth-gen, 2011 Ford Mustang. There was no telling if the nameplate would carry on to the sixth-gen model, but sure enough, Ford delivered. With an updated Mustang rolling into dealers for 2018, it was uncertain whether or not the GT350 nameplate would carry on through the remaining life of this generation or not but, as it turns out, Ford knows better. The Shelby GT350 and GT350R will continue on through the 2018 model year, but there’s a catch. Despite the fact that the Mustang was facelifted for the 2018 model year, the Shelby GT350 and GT350R will carry on unchanged from the 2017 model year, so purchasers of this iconic nameplate will have to get by with pre-2018 styling cues.

As a rather small, but fair consolation price, the 2018 GT350 and GT350R will be available in three new exterior color choices that include Orange Fury, Kona Blue, and Lead Foot Gray. The latter of which has the sole purpose of paying tribute to all those guys that crash after a Cars & Coffee meet. Okay, that’s not necessarily true, but I couldn’t pass at a chance to ruffle a few feathers. For those of you who haven’t been paying attention, the Shelby GT350 and GT350R are the baddest Mustangs that you can get at the current time. The do come at a rather stout premium, with the GT350 starting at $56,145 and the GT350R commanding $63,645. That’s an increase over the range-toping GT Premium Convertible of $13,450 and $20,950, respectively.

Some would argue that the massive price hike for either model is well worth it, so let’s take a closer look both models real quick.


PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Porsche introduced the 911 GT2 in 1992, on the 993-generation sports car. It was initially built to meet homologation requirements for motorsport and it featured wider fenders and a larger rear wing compared to the standard model. Unlike the RS and the GT3, the GT2 used a turbocharged engine. Discontinued in 1998, the GT2 returned on the 996 generation between 2002 and 2005, and was resurrected once again on the 997-gen 911 in 2008. In 2010, two years before the GT2 was again retired, Porsche launched the 911 GT2 RS. Much like the GT3 RS, the GT2 RS weighed less and had a more powerful engine than the non RS version.

Development of the GT2 RS began in 2007, one year before the 997 GT2 was unveiled, as a skunk-works effort. It was dubbed “project 727,” a number based on the Nissan GT-R’s 7:26.7-minute lap time around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. In 2010, the GT2 RS beat the GT-R’s time by an impressive nine seconds, stopping the clock at 7:18. Although Nissan improved the GT-R’s time in 2011 and 2013, it didn’t manage to overtake the GT2 RS until 2015, when the Nismo-prepped version lapped the German track in 7:08.

When it was launched at the 2010 Moscow Auto Show, the GT2 RS marked the absolute climax of the 911 range, becoming the fastest, lightest, and most powerful road-going Porsche to have ever been created. Production was limited to only 500 units, which gave the GT2 RS collectible status as soon as it hit the streets.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Zonda Cinque

Back in the late 2000s, Pagani’s official dealer in Hong Kong requested that Pagani build “the most extreme road-legal Zonda ever created.” Pagani was up to the challenge and, in 2009, Pagani issued a direct response to the request with the Pagani Zonda Cinque. The Cinque was produced in just five examples (with an additional five examples built in roadster form) and was built with the track performance standards of the Zonda R combined with the road-legal standards of the Zonda F.

The end result was a car that was more powerful than the Zonda F with the looks of something that should be chained up inside of a luxurious stable at the track. Furthermore, The Zonda Cinque was actually the first road-legal car that was supported by a carbon-titanium frame and the first Zonda to have a six-speed sequential transmission. Powered by a detuned version of the Mercedes-sourced 7.3-liter V-12, the Zonda Cinque was obviously a very special machine.

As of the time of this writing, seven years has passed since the Zonda Cinque made its official debut (and made five wealthy people very happy,) so let’s take a look back on one of the coolest Zonda’s ever made. After all, one could say it is a genuine work of art.

PostHeaderIcon Renault Alpine A110

It took Renault about three years to transform the 2012 Alpine A110-50 Concept into a production-friendly vehicle, and the road-ready sports car is finally ready to hit the market. Come 2017 and the French company relaunched the Alpine brand at the Geneva Motor Show. As expected, the production model shares many design features with the concept cars Alpine showcased in recent years.

The most recent of them is dubbed Alpine Celebration Concept and broke cover ahead of the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was featured again a couple of weeks later in the year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and looked ready to hit the streets with minor modifications here and here.

As the name suggests, the Celebration Concept celebrated six decades since Alpine was established in Dieppe, France. Also, it pays homage to the classic 1961 -1973 Alpine A110, a sports car the French built from 1961 to 1977. Introduced as an evolution of the A108, the two-door “Berlinette” was designed by Giovanni Michelotti and used a rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. Among being Alpine’s most iconic model, the A110 was also a successful race car, winning the manufacturer’s title at the end of 1973 World Rally Championship.

All told, the new Alpine has a lot of heritage to build on and this is more than evident in the final production model.

PostHeaderIcon BMW i8 Spyder

When BMW first showed off the i-brand concepts, we had no idea we would see production models so fast. In what seemed like just a few seconds in the grand scheme of things, we were looking at production models of the BMW i3 and BMW i8. With the i8 Spyder Concept debuting in 2012, and the production version of the i8 hitting dealers for the 2015 model year, Bimmer fans everywhere have been itching for a production version of the i8 Spyder. So much, in fact, that the rumor mill has been working overtime and there have even been a few false sightings of the unicorn. But, either hell has frozen over or pigs have sprouted wings (or, maybe it’s both) because someone finally caught an official i8 Spyder prototype cruising in the middle of nowhere. They aren’t the best photos we’ve ever received, but the top is clearly down, and it appears to be every bit legitimate thanks to that “hybrid test vehicle” sticker prominently displayed on the rear fascia.

And, while we’ve all been waiting somewhat impatiently for the i8 Spyder, the fact that we’re finally seeing a prototype isn’t all that surprising. Just a few months ago, BMW CEO Harald Krueger not only confirmed the car was in the works, but that it had a production target of 2018! That means that we should see it in production form sometime toward the end of 2017. It’s doubtful that this is the i8 Spyder’s first venture onto public roads, so props to BMW for managing to keep it out of the public eye for so long. But, with that said, let’s talk a little more about what we can see from these few spy shots in my speculative review below.

Updated 02/28/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming i8 Spyder during winter testing in Sweden.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Urus

Rumored for many years, the upcoming Lamborghini Urus, the company’s first-ever SUV, was finally spotted in production form on public roads. Although camouflaged almost entirely, the test vehicle reveals essential details about what Lambo promises to be the world’s fastest and most dynamic SUV.

With Porsche having introduced an SUV in 2003, it was only a matter of time before the other premium sports car and supercar manufacturers joined in the fun. After years of rumors, whispers, and planning, Lamborghini is the next to cross over into the high-performance soccer mom world, a.k.a. the SUV realm, with the oddly named Urus. The name first surfaced in 2008, when Lamborghini trademarked it before the introduction of the Estoque. In 2012, the Urus concept was showcased at the Beijing Auto Show and it didn’t take long before Lamborghini confirmed that a production version is set to follow.

Though the name sounds odd, it is very appropriate for the model. The Urus, also called the Aurochs, is an ancient ancestor of the modern day cow, which went extinct in 1627. These things were massive, ranging from 61 to 71 inches tall at the shoulders and weighing in at 1,500 pounds – phew, that’s a lot of quarter pounders. This makes the urus one of the largest bulls ever recorded, which is appropriate, considering the Lamborghini Urus is almost certainly going to end up being the largest to boast the raging bull emblem.

Now that we have turned off Animal Planet, we can continue with the Lamborghini Urus and not the extinct cow relative. There is some debate as to whether Lamborghini can actually support an SUV, especially after the LM002, the original Lambo SUV, fizzled out in 1993 with only 328 models ever produced.

So, can Lambo actually have a successful SUV this time around, and how does it stack up against the Porsche Cayenne and the Bentley Bentayga? Continue reading to find out more about that.

PostHeaderIcon The Bentley Continental Supersports Is The Continental Variant We've All Been Waiting For

Bentley promised to introduce the “most extreme” car it has ever developed, and true to form, the British luxury marque (or is it a performance brand now?) delivered in spades with the debut of the Continental Supersports, a 700-horsepower piece of viciousness that combines everything we love about the Continental line into one stunning coupe.

The sheer look of the Continental Supersports validates the exotic label being thrown around to describe it. Not only does it looks like a proper performance car (dare I say, maybe even a supercar?) but it does so by taking the already aggressive styling of the slightly less potent Continental GT3-R and cranks it up to another level. Take a look at those redesigned bumpers and the more discernible body lines that give it that racy look to it. And that fixed rear wing at the back? My oh my, this beauty is a sight to behold.

As aggressive as the Supersports looks, it’s real calling card lies underneath that hood, where a 6.0-liter W12 engine with higher-capacity turbochargers resides. That tweaked engine is good for 700 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque, making it the first Bentley ever to carry a factory output of at least 700 horses. That’s no small feat for a company that made its name in the world of automotive luxury.

Speaking of which, the Continental Supersports isn’t all just about power and speed, although we certainly don’t mind having those two departments being the talk of the car. True to its roots, the most extreme Continental is also a picture of luxury, thanks to an interior that’s been designed and dressed to the nines.

We’re going to have a more comprehensive review of the Bentley Continental Supersports up soon so don’t sweat on the broad strokes look of the car we have for now. In the meantime, take a look at this gorgeous piece of work and appreciate Bentley for giving the second-generation Continental the swan song it deserves.

PostHeaderIcon Just What Exactly is this Mid-Engined V-12 Ferrari?

The guys over at Ferrari have apparently been busy little bees. We were recently blessed with the unveiling of that special edition J50, but over at Ferrari there has apparently been another car in the works, but details thus far are scant. Just last week – right around Christmas time – Instagram user Gregb.23 uploaded a couple of mysterious photos of a car hidden away under a fancy red “Atelier” cover and the caption “Guess the car!? Hint it’s not a V8 and it’s not a LaF.” A few days later, he uploaded another photo that gives us a partial view of the engine, and the rear quarter with the caption “Does that engine look familiar?! #V12.” The images have been getting a lot of attention from his Instagram followers and on a forum post on Ferrarichat.com, but so far there has been no word as to what it really is.

Based on the captions with the images, we know it’s a V-12 powered beast that isn’t a LaFerrari or an F12berlinetta, but that’s about it. Some are saying that it could b a 458-based prototype of the LaFerrari, despite the owner clearly saying it is not and LaF. It’s obviously not an Aperta, but as users on Ferrarichat pointed out, the rear spoiler and lights appear to match that of the 458 Speciale while the front looks to have the 458/488 DNA with some minor modifications like different hood vents. What makes all of this even more mysterious, however, is the fact that the 458 wasn’t designed to hold a V-12, so just what does Gregb.23 have here?

PostHeaderIcon TopSpeed's Top 10 Karts For The Road

The Ariel Atom 3S is insanity pushed to a whole new level.

If you’re into cars and going fast (and for some reason, I suspect you are), you owe it to yourself to get a session in with a real, honest racing kart. Notice I’m not saying the word “go-kart.” That’s because a go-kart is something you drive at the carnival, something just this side of bumper cars in terms of adrenaline production. No, I’m talking about racing karts, some of the most terrifying, violent machines you can pilot without a permission slip from the military or Bernie Ecclestone. And while racing karts are a hoot on the track, their performance potential is off limits everywhere else. So what do you do if you want kart-like fun, but in a road-legal package? Well, we’ve got 10 solutions for you right here.

The criteria for this list are straightforward. To be considered, each car has to have the traditional kart-like characteristics. It’s gotta be small, lightweight, agile, and uncluttered in its engineering and design. Oh, and it’s gotta be fun, too.

Sound good? Then grab your helmet and driving gloves, and read on.

PostHeaderIcon McLaren F1 LM

The McLaren F1 was launched in 1992 and revolutionized the supercar industry more than any other vehicle since the automobile was invented. It was not only the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis, but also the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof. It also had an impressive drag coefficient of only 0.32, a smart interior made of lightweight materials, luggage compartments implemented in each rear fender, and a three-seat configuration with the driver placed in the middle, just like in a Formula One car.

Developed and built by Gordon Murray, arguably the best designed since Colin Chapman, the F1 also spawned a successful race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans at its first attempt, as well as a number of limited-edition models that went on to become some of the rarest and most expensive cars launched in 1990s. One of them is the F1 LM, a supercar McLaren built to celebrate its Le Mans victory in 1995. The LM was limited to only five example, the exact number of F1 GTRs that finished the race.

Arguably the quickest and most powerful road car at the time of its introduction, the LM went on to become the most expensive road-going McLaren and a highly sought-after collectible. Find out what makes it special in our full review below.
