McLaren MP4-12C versus the world (CAR Magazine archive, July 2011)

Rated 1 out of 51

Ben Oliver, 23 September 2013 15:08

It’s the group test to end all group tests: McLaren 12C versus Ferrari 458 versus every other supercar that matters. Can anything overwhelm the mighty McLaren?

Ben Pulman, 10 October 2012 14:00

Many months ago CAR magazine's editor hatched a plan to gather together the 50 greatest cars of the past 50 years to celebrate CAR’s 50th birthday. So we found a huge aircraft hangar, picked a week far too near in the future, and I made some calls and sent some emails. And then made more calls and sent more emails, ...

McLaren vs the world - Pt 2 (CAR, July 2011)

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Ben Collins, 31 August 2012 10:00

The weather at Rockingham  racetrack is perfect for this test of the titans: clear skies with a balmy track ambient to help tyres bite bitumen. As the sun beats down, poker-faced crews unload their darlings from immaculate trucks; stopwatches are fondled, new tyres pressured. Yet the way I drive on them, these tyres will be snuffed after two laps, leaving ...

The pride and passion of Enzo Ferrari

Rated 4 out of 54

Enzo Ferrari is a big man. Big, fleshy nose. Big, loose mouth. Big, solid body. The next thing that you notice about him is that he bears about as much resemblance to most car makers and the rest of motor racing’s constructors as an ageing lion to a day-long mayfly. And then, quick upon that, there’s the realisation that he’s ...
