A look at the fantastic HW Exotics 5-pack – the Lamley Group
Car Meet was great, HW Exotics is too.
In the past, some of the Exotics 5-packs, essentially made to replace the yearly Ferrari 5-pack, have yielded some gems and some duds. Not this pack. Here is a look...

Julian's Hot Wheels Blog: 2018 Gran Turismo Set!
Talk about an awesome set! I think it may be even better than the last Gran Turismo cars from Hot Wheels (click here to see that post). Regardless, it's a nice set to have!

Showcase: Hot Wheels 2018 Gran Turismo 8-car set – the Lamley Group
The second Gran Turismo set is on its way. Hobby dealers like Wheel Collectors just got it (sold out), and stores like Kroger and Walgreens (I assume) will have them soon. There is a some good stuff in this set, and here is a preview...
Picking a favorite is hard, but if I had to choose, I’ll go with the McLaren or Renault R.S. 01. That being said, if the BMW had at least front or rear tampos, that would be the clear winner. Your choice?

The next Hot Wheels Gran Turismo set is now available at Wheel Collectors – the Lamley Group
This one is better than last year.
The next Hot Wheels Gran Turismo set has been released, and Wheel Collectors has it. You can buy the set now:
Hot Wheels 2018 Gran Turismo at Wheel Collectors
As far as where we will see this one in stores, I am not entirely sure, but I would assume the same places as last year. Or you can make it super easy and grab a set now. Last year’s set was nice, but this one is a major step up. Do you agree?
Video and photo features coming soon.

I’m just not feeling the new Hot Wheels McLaren Tiburon. I mean 720S. – the Lamley Group
I will start by saying, that at least aesthetically, I am still trying to figure out if I like the real McLaren 720S. Some of you might agree, many of you will passionately disagree, and so be it. Hopefully we don’t all like and dislike the same thing.
But the 720S doesn’t do it for me. Granted if I had one in the garage you wouldn’t hear me complain, but I am just another nerd with an opinion and device to express it on. McLaren states that every contour on the car is created for a purpose, and I am sure that is true. Still, for the most part, there are other McLarens that float by boat a bit more.
I would imagine that with any current McLaren, shrinking it down to 1/64 is particularly difficult, with all the waves and swooshes. All those rounded edges are what makes Porsches so difficult to shrink as well. And like Hot Wheels Porsches, that means a lot of hits and a few misses. And to me, this 720S is like the HW Porsche Boxster. It’s a miss.

Hypercars from Aston Martin and Rimac stand out at the Geneva Motor Show | Ars Technica
In the second part of our look at Geneva, it’s all about the unobtainium.
In the first part of our Geneva Motor Show coverage, we took a look at some of the electric vehicle offerings, not to mention the proliferation of four-door (not) coupes. In part two, we're getting high-end.

McLaren Senna GTR: An 814-Plus-HP, Track-Bound Ballistic Missile | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
McLaren has unveiled its latest racetrack weapon, the Senna GTR, which takes the recently unveiled—and already sold out—Senna hypercar to what could be its ultimate extreme. It follows in the footsteps of previous McLaren racers like the Le Mans–winning F1 GTR and the more recent P1 GTR.
The Senna GTR is limited to just 75 customers, each of which will have to shell out $1.4 million for the privilege of owning one. For the extra few hundred thousand dollars over the “regular” Senna, owners will get more power and torque, more grip and downforce, and a car that, McLaren promises, will offer the brand’s fastest lap times outside Formula 1.

Inside the Million-Dollar McLaren Senna Supercar | WIRED
With the Senna, the million-dollar base price buys you less not more. It’s stripped back, bereft of everything that adds weight. All that's left is a passenger cell, shrink wrapped in carbon fiber, with an enormous wing on the back.

Top 7 fastest naturally aspirated road cars ever | DriveTribe
Natural aspiration has been falling down a slippery slope ever since the dawn of forced induction, with atmospheric performance engines now being chased with pitchforks and torches to the far flung reaches of the automotive world.
Twin-turbocharging is now the go-to method of creating supercar levels of power but there's still something to be said for a highly tuned, bored-out naturally aspirated engine. To celebrate the last free-breathing beasts alive today, we've collected the fastest of them all that stand defiant against any form of bolt-on compressor.

McLaren Unveils Senna Carbon-Themed Supercar | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
McLaren will show off five different special-edition cars at the upcoming 2018 Geneva auto show, but only the car seen here will be in physical attendance; the others will be displayed on screens. Tagged the Carbon Theme, this Senna has been liberated of much of its paint, exposing through its gloss clear-coat finish the intricate carbon-fiber weave that makes up the body of the car. The little splashes of color that are applied serve as a reinterpretation of Ayrton Senna’s yellow, green, and black helmet. Because naming the car after the late Brazilian racing legend wasn’t a big enough gesture. Exposed carbon-fiber bodies have become something of a trend in supercars (just ask Bugatti), but McLaren Special Operations (MSO) gave the Senna a bit of extra pizazz to set it apart. According to McLaren, the Senna’s body is composed of 67 individual parts and takes close to 1000 hours to craft. Just to paint the sills, rear wing, and front and rear aero pieces in Solar Yellow added nearly 250 hours of labor.

Watch McLaren’s stumble into the 2017 F1 season in new Amazon show | Ars Technica
It's like an automotive version of The Office, but for McLaren, worse.
Amazon Prime has returned to things four-wheeled with its latest original production. It's not another Jeremy Clarkson spinoff, though; it's a rare look at the inner workings of a Formula 1 team. Grand Prix Driver is a four-part documentary—available from today—that gives the viewer an access-all-pass into the workings off the McLaren team as it gets ready for the 2017 Formula 1 season.
Access to teams in this highly competitive and highly secretive sport is unusual, particularly a team as image-conscious as McLaren. So it's a little surprising just how much we get to see, as what's meant to be a turnaround season instead plumbs new depths of despair for the organization.
It's a simple concept: camera crews wander about the breathtaking McLaren Technology Center, the white-and-gray technopalace from which the cars are birthed. They film in meeting rooms, workshop bays, and at the test track, as the 2017 car comes together and the team's two drivers—superstar Fernando Alonso and rookie Stoffel Vandoorne—in the run-up to the first race of the year. But the cameras are visiting MTC at an eventful time.

Fernando, you’re getting a Dell: McLaren gets a new sponsor in F1 | Ars Technica
Dell Technologies and the McLaren Technology Group sign a multi-year partnership.
One of the most recognizable names in racing is pairing up with one of the most recognizable names in computing. The McLaren Formula 1 team and Dell Technologies are entering into a "multi-faceted, long-term partnership." After several years without a major sponsor—years that mostly coincided with a precipitous fall in performance—fans of the team should see this as a positive step for the British team.

More McLaren Senna Info Spills Forth: Here's What You Need to Know | News | Car and Driver
Diving deeper on an impressive hypercar named for a racing icon.
Naming a car for arguably the best driver ever to grid a Formula 1 race is a bold decision, and McLaren calling its new track-focused hypercar the Senna is akin to Ferrari debuting the Schumacher or Audi launching a 300-mph Rosemeyer. This is hallowed ground. Getting it right in the eyes of racing fans, the company’s customers, and Senna’s family—who approved use of the name through the Ayrton Senna Foundation—is much harder than getting it wrong. Later this year, once we drive the Senna, we will confirm whether the British supercar maker has achieved its goal of producing the “lightest, fastest, and most engaging McLaren yet.” Until then, and on the heels of the first wave of information released in December, here are 10 things we gleaned from a recent trip to poke and prod both the car and the minds of its engineers. It looks quite promising.

McLaren Porsche 911 with TAG F1 V6 engine | DriveTribe
Here’s a car we bet you didn’t know existed. We didn’t. It’s a 930-era Porsche 911 with a McLaren Formula One engine.
Yes, you did read that correctly. Sitting in the back of this otherwise neat-looking 911 is a 1.5-litre TAG turbocharged V6 like what was seen in McLaren F1 cars of the 1980s.
This car was spotted at McLaren’s headquarters in the UK and posted up onto website, showing off only a set of Ruf alloy wheels. At the back, though, are two very thick intercoolers that help cool pressurised air being fed into the tiny F1 V6 engine.
