Earlier today, we posted about a mystery McLaren. Penrob had a good riposte.

Comment Of The Day: Loud McLaren Edition Comment Of The Day: Loud McLaren Edition

It’s one thing to know that, technically, the new MSO Defined Titanium SuperSports Exhaust is a whole five decibels louder than the regular exhaust on a McLaren 570S. It’s another to know exactly how loud that is.

Listen To The Sweet, Sweet Rasp Of McLaren's Own Titanium Aftermarket Exhaust Listen To The Sweet, Sweet Rasp Of McLaren's Own Titanium Aftermarket Exhaust

At 4:00 this morning I went deep into my garage-bunker to stare at my glittering jewels, as I do every morning. There they sat, all 9,000 of them, each one of them a nearly perfect jewel of a McLaren 570GT. “Nearly perfect?” you ask. Yes, peasant, nearly perfect. Because while the standard McLaren 570 exhaust is quite…

McLaren's Giving A Little Sculpture To Its Center-Seat Supercar Buyers For Waiting Until 2019 McLaren's Giving A Little Sculpture To Its Center-Seat Supercar Buyers For Waiting Until 2019

Waiting for the delivery of a $2.5-million supercar that hasn’t even been unveiled yet is the rich person’s equivalent to staring out the window and waiting for a package from an online order to come, so McLaren is helping future BP23 owners survive their wait with fancy little sculptures to remind them what their car…

This McLaren 650S Wreck Wasn't That Terrible All Things Considered This McLaren 650S Wreck Wasn't That Terrible All Things Considered

I have always been wary of those places that will rent you a supercar. Most peoples’ instinct when they get a car that powerful is to see how fast it is when they aren’t used to the speed. This crashed McLaren 650S looks to be the latest victim of one of those situations. Yes, the car is wrecked, but at least it…

Yes, Even Your McLaren Needs Insurance Yes, Even Your McLaren Needs Insurance

You need insurance if you want to drive in public. Everyone knows this except, perhaps, the owner of this McLaren 570S.

An Off-Roading McLaren 720S Is One Of The Most Nerve-Wracking Things We've Seen All Week An Off-Roading McLaren 720S Is One Of The Most Nerve-Wracking Things We've Seen All Week

Even the most novice trails look impassable in a supercar that’s slammed to the ground, but that didn’t stop this ultimate driving ninja from taking his McLaren 720S off the pavement. This may just be one of the most nerve-wracking things we’ve seen in a while.

McLaren Is Incredibly Dismissive Of Electric Sports Cars McLaren Is Incredibly Dismissive Of Electric Sports Cars

While Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Tesla, and even Chevrolet are rushing to build battery electric super car, The U.K.’s premier supercar manufacturer, McLaren, says they definitely will not, according to this report from Bloomberg.

McLaren Embraces Ugly F1 Halo And Gets Flip Flops Sponsorship McLaren Embraces Ugly F1 Halo And Gets Flip Flops Sponsorship

It looks like Formula One’s new halo is a big step forward for safety in the sport. Also, it looks hideous. But at least McLaren is embracing that their once-lovely F1 cars have giant protective flip flops on them, by partnering with a flip flop company for charity.

Aston Martin Is Planning Yet Another Mid-Engine Hypercar To Kick McLaren's Ass Aston Martin Is Planning Yet Another Mid-Engine Hypercar To Kick McLaren's Ass

People can claim cars and car enthusiasts are dying out, but Aston Martin is surging ahead with its recent revitalization with plans to offer not just the Valkyrie hypercar and upcoming mid-engine Ferrari 488 rival, but also yet another million-dollar mid-engine hypercar to take on whatever McLaren plans to do next.

A Search For Japan's Best Driving Roads In A 562 HP McLaren Led Straight To Nirvana A Search For Japan's Best Driving Roads In A 562 HP McLaren Led Straight To Nirvana

When McLaren Japan offered me a 570S Spider to drive for a few days, I knew I had to take it somewhere special. This wasn’t some boring kei car—this was a car that needed to be taken on some proper roads. It would almost be blasphemy to only drive in a congested city.

The McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT Will Do 243 MPH And They're Already Sold Out, Sorry The McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT Will Do 243 MPH And They're Already Sold Out, Sorry

Earlier this week we learned that the upcoming three-seat McLaren BP23 will be crazy fast—faster than even the legendary McLaren F1 was. Now the mad scientists from Woking have unveiled two important numbers: 243 and 106.

The McLaren F1 Team Hasn't Escaped Those Reliability Problems Yet The McLaren F1 Team Hasn't Escaped Those Reliability Problems Yet

The finale of the Formula One season last year was a hard one for me. It was the end of a long, one-sided relationship I’d held with the McLaren-Honda F1 team partnership, in which the Honda engine miserably failed and I made constant, possibly annoying jokes about it. I really enjoyed the bond we had there.

The Many Outrageous Wings Of The Geneva Motor Show The Many Outrageous Wings Of The Geneva Motor Show

As the sun sets on the Geneva Motor Show press days, I thought I’d take a tour of the show floor and do a different sort of round up. The kind of round up that involves staring (for a bit too long, admittedly) at a bunch of massive wings glued to the back of cars that either don’t exist or I’ll never be able to afford.

The McLaren BP23 Will Be The Fastest McLaren Ever The McLaren BP23 Will Be The Fastest McLaren Ever

Hot off the heels of launching a super hardcore version of the Senna, the Senna GTR, you’d expect McLaren to want to take a bit of a break. Not so! Now it’s here from the Geneva Motor Show with some news about the upcoming F1-style three-seater BP23: It’s going to be fast. Very fast.

The McLaren Senna GTR Concept Has No Regard For Your Puny 'Laws Of Physics' The McLaren Senna GTR Concept Has No Regard For Your Puny 'Laws Of Physics'

The McLaren Senna is a divisive car. It’s light, powerful, and not all that pretty. Some people hate the looks, others like it because it’s going to be so freaking fast. McLaren wasn’t done when it made the road car though. It decided to see what would happen if it didn’t have to worry about safety regulations,…

A Winter Road Trip In A McLaren Is The Best Way To Make Yourself And Others Happy A Winter Road Trip In A McLaren Is The Best Way To Make Yourself And Others Happy

The “everyday supercar” thing can be bandied around as often as you like, but something super powerful, rear drive, and very expensive shouldn’t really be on your list of cars to take out when snow starts falling. I mean, why would you do that? However, if you absolutely must get from point A to point B and have, say,…

Make Your McLaren Senna Less Ugly With Carbon Fiber For A Mere $400,000 Make Your McLaren Senna Less Ugly With Carbon Fiber For A Mere $400,000

I’ve made no secret of my distaste for the McLaren Senna’s looks. Thankfully, McLaren has heard my bellyaching and given us this: the McLaren Senna “Carbon Theme.” It’s not bad! It’s just really freaking expensive.

The 2018 McLaren Formula One Car: Now With More Blue And Less Honda The 2018 McLaren Formula One Car: Now With More Blue And Less Honda

Life is full of disappointments, but not many have been as crushing as the story of the McLaren Honda Formula One team. The return to that partnership conjured images of the Senna-Prost glory days, but it mostly meant DNFs, engine failures and Fernando Alonso’s sad, dead-looking eyes. But for 2018, things will be…

Absurd Prices For The McLaren F1 Probably Won't Top Out Anytime Soon Absurd Prices For The McLaren F1 Probably Won't Top Out Anytime Soon

Over the summer, a McLaren F1 with 9,600 miles on the clock sold for $15.6 million. I, a person who has no concept of money above about $1,000, thought this seemed like a lot. The thing is, that probably isn’t even where F1 sales will probably top out at, either.
