We’ve got a fine selection of poison for you in this week’s edition of sweet motoring news. Like your oldschool Porsches being run ragged? We’ve got that. Love your Bugatti and Ford race cars? We’ve got that too. Get in, fool.
#1 McLaren 650S Spider Nürburgring 24H Edition
Supercars in super-rare trim are the best. McLaren know that so they’ve served up the 650S Spider in an ultra-limited edition spec that celebrates race driver Kevin Estre’s pole position at last year’s 24 Hours of Nürburgring. The bonus features over the stock 650S includes a reworked carbon fibre splitter, rear diffuser, side blades, and Dörr Motorsport special wheels and exhaust. The interior gets the McLaren orange treatment with special badging. Want one? You’ll have to fight the other eight people for it because that’s how many will be made available to the world.
#2 2016 Ford GT Race Car Tests At Sebring
If noise was a pleasurable experience, what would you call it? You’d call it the 2016 Ford GT Le Mans car. The resurrected beast was recently caught testing, in full carbon fibre trim for next year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. Do Porsche and Audi have something to worry about? Watch the video and find out.
#3 Tesla’s Model X SUV Will Do 0-100km/h in 3.2s
We left out the bad news – it will also cost over $100,000 in the U.S. And that 3.2s sprint time comes with Tesla‘s infamous ‘Ludicrous Mode’ which will be a $10,000 option. Still, it will do 386km on a single charge, come with awesome gull wing doors and lots of space for the kiddies. Not that they’ll be moving much when launch mode pins them to their seats. We call that a win-win.
#4 Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition
To celebrate the upcoming release of Bond’s latest (and Daniel Craig’s final) film, Aston Martin have gone off and tweaked their DB9 with some minor cosmetic upgrades and called it a Bond Edition. What makes it so Bond-esque? Special silver paint, special 007 badges, an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch and a 21-inch Globe Trotter trolley case. As an added bonus you also get a 5.9-litre V12 pumping out 402kW and 620Nm. Only 150 samples will be built.
#5 Lightspeed Classic Porsche Shows Us How To Drive
Driver Tim Schrick takes his Lightspeed Classic Porsche 911 for a fang on the streets of the Port of Rotterdam. Nothing to see here officer. Except burnt rubber.
