mclaren releases gt

McLaren has expanded their product range with the introduction of their first-ever Grand Tourer. Announced in May, the McLaren GT is an all-new model that will sit apart from the brand’s existing Sports, Super and Ultimate Series families, but will feature familiar McLaren styling and engineering. “The new McLaren GT combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a beautiful body and true to McLaren’s ethos of designing superlight cars with a clear weight advantage over rivals,” said Mike Flewitt, CEO McLaren Automotive “Designed for distance, it provides the comfort and space expected of a Grand Tourer, but with a level of agility never experienced before in this segment. In short, this is a car that redefines the notion of a Grand Tourer in a way that only McLaren could.” Overall…

aston martin create ‘ohmss’ dbs

To mark the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Aston Martin has announced they’ll produce a small run of DBS Superleggera models inspired by the 1969 feature film. The least known, and arguably least liked of all the classic-era Bond films (even though it was commercially successful), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (OHMSS) was the sixth film in the 007 franchise and saw the title role pass from Sean Connery to George Lazenby. Born and raised in Australia, Lazenby had worked as a car salesman and part-time model before his starring role as James Bond. While Lazenby was new to the 007 franchise, Aston Martin wasn’t. Debuting with 1964’s Goldfinger, the popularity of the Aston Martin DB5 saw it return in Thunderball (1966), but for OHMSS,…

hsv release camaro zl1 numbers

When JUST CARS detailed the upcoming Chevrolet Camaro 2SS and ZL1 variants for 2019 (issue #280), performance data for the ZL1 had not been confirmed by local importers and converters, HSV. This past May, following full certification of the Camaro ZL1 for Australia, HSV has released that data. Maximum power for the Camaro ZL1 has been confirmed at 477kW at 6,400rpm, with maximum torque of 881Nm at 3,600rpm. These figures differ slightly from the 480kW and 860Nm maximums quoted in March. “These numbers are sure to inspire GM, HSV and performance enthusiasts alike,” said HSV’s Managing Director, Tim Jackson. “It truly is an exceptional vehicle.” As previously reported, the Camaro ZL1 is powered by GM’s LT4 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine, matched to a choice of 6-speed manual or 10-speed auto transmissions. Launch Control…

ford gt farewells le mans with ‘celebration’ liveries

After returning to the 24 Hours of Le Mans as a factory team in 2016, Ford has ended their endurance racing programme, signing off with special liveries for the four factory Ford GTs run by Chip Ganassi Racing at this year’s Le Mans race. Each livery honours Ford’s past successes at the annual French endurance event, including the outright wins in 1966 and 1967 (GT40 MkII and MkIV, respectively), and the class win in 2016. Curiously, while the fourth car appears to replicate the famous Gulf colours from the winning Ford GT40 MkI of 1968 and ’69, Ford says the livery is actually inspired by the car that came second as part of Ford’s 1-2-3 finish in 1966. For this year’s 87th 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing…

toyota release aus pricing for new supra

Australian pricing has been confirmed for the all-new Toyota GR Supra, along with a local delivery date. Due for release in September, but only in limited numbers, the GR (Gazoo Racing) Supra will be offered in two versions: a GT priced from $84,900; and a GTS priced from $94,900, excluding on-road costs, so driveaway will be around $93,000 and $104,000, respectively. Obviously, this is premium pricing, but Toyota’s Sean Hanley says the Supra “should be compared with vehicles in a much higher price bracket, including top-end European sports coupes”. Both new Supra variants are powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre straight six engine, producing 250kW and 500Nm, matched to an 8-speed auto transmission driving the rear wheels. A 0-100km/h time of 4.4 seconds has been claimed from this package. The main differences between the GT…

ferrari release sf90 stradale

While the inclusion of four-wheel drive on a Ferrari sports car may upset some Prancing Horse purists, the thought of one with an electric motor would have many apoplectic! Despite this, Ferrari has included both elements on its new flagship model–the SF90 Stradale. Unveiled in May, the SF90 Stradale will temper criticism of its “new-fangled” features by being the most powerful V8 engine the company has ever produced. With the ICE and electric motors combined, the SF90 Stradale is also the most powerful Ferrari road car ever. It should be noted that neither of the new car’s signature elements are entirely new to Ferrari. The LaFerrari featured a KERS-style hybrid system, while the GTC4 Lusso was all-wheel drive, but combining the two in the one vehicle is a Ferrari first, with both…
