Although I was walking along Marylebone High Street earlier when I heard what sounded like a middlingly powerful car approaching behind me. From the sound, I was fairly sure it was the current generation of M3/4 which hasn't been lauded for making the most tuneful or interesting of noises.
Anyway, turned out it wasn't. It was a Monaco-registered white McLaren of some recent sort or other. A 570 perhaps.
Off it went. And because this was Marylebone High Street, not long after I was passed by a current-model Vantage and then a C63S coupe, both of which sounded rather nicer and naughtier than the Macca (considerably so in the case of the Merc).
So, hmmm, McLaren powerplants. Good and all that but...
Allegedly so. Plus poor parts supply, again allegedly.
Back to the OP, the electric stuff just leaves me cold, although I still like the leftfield, manic-powered, IC stuff. The Valkyrie especially, with an NA V12 spinning to 11,000rpm, although it needs tobe a dark colour to better disguise the aero gubbins (I hate the modern Ford GT for those 'tunnels').
.... but it now just seems like there are too many.
I apply that to the McLarens as well, when I see one on the road or parked in the street (a rare event admittedly) I don't know which version they are. I suspect I'd be able to identify a Senna by its clear door panels but I suspect that's it!
Just had a few beers in a mates garden and I didn’t realise he was heading up the account with Lotus for the marketing company that he works for. He designed the model logo for the Evija and it changed part way through the process when someone spotted the reflection and realised it read alive backwards, so he made it clearer and it’s not built into the marketing.
The really good part of his job is spending 2 whole days with Lotus driving their cars on track and on the road to understand them better....
