McLaren 600LT: The Longtail Returns

McLaren 600LT brings back an evocative name, pumping up the 570S for a hard core drive. McLaren’s near-constant new model barrage continues with the 600LT. Tagged with “The Edge is calling“, the Woking team has amped up its core 570S, added some rear bodywork and, well, done a lot more besides. The Longtail name was last seen on the 675LT before its replacement by the properly psycho 720S and it’s a name that means something. The first McLaren LT, the F1 GTR is a true icon, so the company has…

DBS Superleggera – Aston Supercar Goes Superlight

Aston’s DBS Superleggera has dropped and it looks mighty. Aston Martin’s Vanquish S is gone but it’s okay, everyone – the DBS Superleggera is here. It’s been a while between drinks for the DBS name – it first made headlines in the late Sixties. The DB6 was getting on a bit and the William Towns-designed, straight-six powered S debuted as a fastback GT. A couple of years later the 5.3-litre V8 arrived with “the fastest four-seater in the world” tagline. The DBS name returned in 2007 and – get this…

It’s still gorgeous. It’s still one-of-a-kind and it’s the car I’d have if I needed one like it. Even though I’ve never driven it. Because it’s pretty and it’s fast and it’s an Aston Martin. Aston Martin Rapide The Rapide is an interesting thing. I actually wrote “old school” first, but it’s nothing of the…

Jaguar’s awesome topless F-Type comes in hardtop form. If you really want to get moving, you want the F-Type SVR Coupe.

Ferrari 488 Spider Review

Ferrari 488 Spider Review The Ferrari 488 GTB is the benchmark. Ferrari’s mid-engined sports cars have been the top of the pile for decades. This latest iteration is the latest in a line that started with the 1968 Dino (don’t start). The mid-engined baby quickly became the standard, with the bigger midships V12s fading away (Aventador excepted) to front-engines. The 488 Spider is another in a rather shorter line of cars – the hardcore, mid-engined drop-top sports car from Ferrari. But it’s a line that’s as iconic as its coupes.…
