      Very cool - I would like to see it here in Los Angeles next week, but I try to stay out of the way when they are courting customers at an event like this so I didn't ask anyone for an invite.

      As per the link at the bottom of my previous post, there does appear to be a side vent on the shoulder of the beltline - similar in placement to the one on the P1. You can just see a bit of it in...

      The radiators up front exchange heat from a low pressure water circuit that runs to the air-to-water intercoolers - those are located close to the turbochargers within the engine compartment.

      This is not accurate - the drivetrain of the car tested was mechanically identical in all respects, save for the additional 1,000 RPMs they raised the rev limiter.

      You could argue they cheated a...

      I still wander these parts occasionally. :)




      1: As noted already, XP5 - the fifth and final prototype produced by McLaren in 1993 before the start of F1 production very late that year.

      Yes - a lot of fault including the F1 on that list. AutoWeek's writers should have done a little more research on the topic.

      The styling model for the F1 was unveiled to the public in Monaco in...

      Of course I watched it and I enjoyed it. Dream big and the impossible could become possible. Whether you like it or not, it's becoming clear that in the very near future we are going to try to put a...
