Hennessy Venom GT review

I am not a big fan of tuned cars.. And I can't judge a car without checking enough reviews about it.. But the Venom comes with an engine from the Viper, Turbos from god knows where, A transmission from a Ford GT and corvette alternator..!!

So you bring all the bits from all the best american cars.. and box them.?

This like asking for a wife with all the good qualities you see on every single beautiful woman!




And after all, they do the testing in the backyard and public roads!

McLaren P1 Power-train

McLaren announced finally the full figures of the P1, most anticipated hyper car, the successor of the old legendary McLaren F1.

903 Bhp
900 Nm
V8
Twin Turbo
Two electric motors



The revised 3.8 unit along with the electric motor, gives a feeling close to a normally aspirated engine. having in mind that the light weight electric motor is unique to McLaren and produces almost 176 bhp instantly at the click of a button, mounted on the steering wheel.

And you can drive the car entirely using the electric motor (E Mode) in residential areas and low emissions zones for 10 kilometers, then the petrol engine will work and charge the battery again.  


From the Formula1 world to the street legal hyper cars, Ferrari and McLaren are the best companies that uses formula1 cars as mules to test new technologies helping them making cars lighter, faster and more efficient.

DRS (Drag Reduction System) is also one of those systems. It was introduced before, but here, you can actually engage, or disengage with the button you see below.  



More information on accelerating and top speed will be revealed in the next few weeks..

SL63 AMG Vs. BMW M6

I have always loved older generations of most cars so far.. Why?

Just watch the video first..




The Older BMW M6 was the first M6 ever, if you ignore the old 635ci..
And the car was equipped with a normally aspirated V10 packing 500 Bhp with the M button on the steering wheel.. It was lighter, more nimble and agile.. And.. We did 330 km/h after disabling the limiter.

The SL on the other hand, both the SL55 and SL63 sounded better, looked better and one was super charged, and the later one was a normally aspirated 6.2987897874 Litre.. (Not 6.3L)

These two are not a disaapointment, but rather a more comfy versions for another reason.. so then they can make another car.. give it a sexy name and remove some of the gadgets you like then charge extra :/

Ferrari Testarossa

Ferrari Testarossa.. means red head in Italian.. they mean the red cam covers over the engine..
I will not bore with so much details and how much I love the car.. But this car was in an era where the Lamborghini Countach was about to hand it over for the Diablo and both have flashy doors!

This on the other hand was much easier to drive and sounds like a proper Ferrari..

McLaren P1 Offecial Photos in Bahrain International Circuit

I have posted before about GFWilliams and his amazing photography skills.. And seems now that McLaren loves the touches he added to his already great photography skills.

Having the first official pictures of the P1 is not easy.. such an honor for a photographer to be given the chance..


What gave it more glow.. at least to me, is that every single picture was taken at Bahrain International Circuit. A place I really love and know well.


Pit Garages..

Bahrain International Circuit
Turn 1



If you click on the image to enlarge.. you'll see the tyres are specially made for the concept car, with McLaren name all over and not yet the official ones.






Such a great car to look at, and well done again GFWilliams

GulfRun 8 Video

I was there, but will not be able to come up with such a nice video of the whole two days event!
So if you missed GulfRun.. here you go..




All in all.. GulfRun is one great event all together.. bringing all the car enthusiasts to Bahrain International circuit for two whole days, giving them different experiences on different set-ups of the track and a drag race.

The drag race is cool because you see real street cars racing side by side. and it all depends on the driver to show the full potential of a car.

Well done guys.. 

Porsche 50 Years Anniversary

Ferrari Enzo Drifting

Forget about how rich people treat their cars or why..
To drive the Enzo in such Manner, you need balls..

This car was easy to see that traction control was off.. and he was so brave..

I Love that!!!!




Wish to see more of that..
These hyper cars were made to be driven, not to be hidden in cooled garages 

Chevrolet Corvette C7 Interior

Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 Around Nürburgring

If there's one recent car in our modern era that would drive as a proper racing car.. then its gotta be the GT3 RS..

I got the chance to test drive the GT3 RS 3.8 997.2 almost 2 years ago. But never got the chance to drive the 4.0 but I recon it drives even better with the additional 50Bhp.

Here you go.. Around the killer track..




Enjoy!

Bruce McLaren is a great man.. died at the age of 32 years only, but men live through achievements and inspirations..
