When I was at the Pebble Beach Concours in 2017, covering it for Jalopnik, I had spotify cranked up on my iPhone in my pocket the whole time I walked around the fairways and hospitality tents.
Our friends at McLaren agree.
Bring forth all the wild off-road supercar projects. My body is ready.
I didn’t blur anything out. I shot the image of that console at f/2.8, so there was a shallow depth of field, and an emphasis on the suspension button.
Uhhh... no. Where did you hear that? There’s no substantial artificial elevation change out there at all. I was out there when they broke ground, and made several visits during 2011 and 2012, leading up to the completion, so I would have noticed any attempts to add hills. That and the observation area COTA first set…
That’s exactly what they did with COTA. Mind you it’s one of the few newer tracks that actually has significant elevation change around the property.
I wanted to like that car when I got the lead on driving it. I really did. I think I said it best, when we had our end of year recap stories.
I’m fine with all sorts of sports cars being turned into safari builds. Especially 911s.
Just to be clear: You like the safari trend, right?
You’ve obviously not read a couple of mine. Especially the VLF Rocket one.
Good for McLaren to own it, and admit this didn’t work out. The car was not good, had a strange ensemble of parts, and was supported by a team that was not well-assembled nor prepared.
Same. The bigger wing is really meant for the track, and does great things for downforce. I just prefer the subtle lines.
Right. Another reason to exclude it from such an event.
Which generation? Anything newer than a 993 isn’t eligible.
The red test mule also goes back and forth between the duck and whale. This is how it looked over the weekend.
Those Lyon Estates signs are still tucked into a corner, about 50' from the petrol station. They happened to be right by where you entered the port-a-potty area. They deserved a better death.
Yeah. It was surreal out there. I also wandered over to The Good Place on my way out, and quickly met a friendly security officer who suggested I get back in the car and continue my exit plan.
Possibly. Also a nice way to elevate the cars and keep some distance.
There’s no paint. It’s exposed carbon fiber. All 400Rs are carbon-bodied, but this customer wanted theirs to match the look of their Koenigsegg, so they paid a little (LOT) extra to get the weave perfectly matched all around.
