So, if you’re anything like me, and you love cars, but can’t afford not a single one those late night, vehicular wet dreams, you’d gladly trade your residence in for, then I’m sorry to say that this will be another one of those dreams you’re going to have to pant over. Today we’re going to join the masses, and swoon over the newest 2015 McLaren 650S.
McLaren’s popularity has become higher than normal with it’s sold out P1, and Gearheads.orgthe very popular 12C steadily flowing out of showroom floors, and yes it looks like another model was needed to form a trio of high speed, and power, since it stands. Go into the 2015 McLaren 650S.
The McLaren 650S funny since it sounds, is the midpoint between great, and freakin’ awesome. To put it in a perspective that a lot of our female readers can understand, the 650S is form of like what can come between Manolo Blahnik, and Jimmy Choo, or Lindt Chocolate Truffles, and Godiva Chocolate Truffles, or perhaps your own five fingers of pleasure, as well as a battery operated induced state of orgasmic bliss. You will get my picture?
With that said, the 650S is not really one of those concept cars which will remain nothing but a rolling shell, mainly because it travels from car show to car show. This car has now received plenty of notoriety through leaked photos, and videos of it being test around the world renown Nurburgring, and then for that alone, McLaren foresees a very welcoming arrival in the event it does actually hit showroom floors.
McLaren-MP4-12C_2013 Unlike it’s brethren, the 650S’ number plate actually refers to it’s horsepower amount, or range. Through tireless work, and toiling, as well as some borrowed parts from it’s siblings, the 650S makes a stout 641Hp, via it’s twin turbocharged, “British” built McLaren M838T V8 engine. You already know how proud the Brits are of this one. Then the “S”, that follows the 650 designation means, Sport. When you look at the car, and see it for what it is, do you really must explain to somebody that the “S” stands for sport, personally? Anyway, the body lines of the 650S are extremely comparable to that of the 12C, but through slight tweaking, and reshaping, McLaren designers claim that down force has been improved by at least 25% overall. Other than that, by checking out the McLaren 650S, you can hardly tell that it car has any real differences regarding it.For 2015 McLaren found a way to get this car diverse from any other Supercar, or Hypercar on the road today. They decided to make it more practical, and as funny as that sounds, it makes perfect sense. Should you look at other cars that have to perform at ultra high levels, they need to shed weight to carry out it, and in doing so, they have a tendency to lose McLaren-650S_2015some of the basic amenities. The 650S however, has been in a position to maintain it’s fast McLaren driving prowess, all the while allowing the driver to take pleasure from the creature comforts of the everyday norm. This car will actually come with Sat-Nav, Blue-tooth capabilities, Audio Streaming via Sirius Satellite Radio (In America), wireless tethering, voice controls, and something that ought to have come standard in the Veneno, a back up camera. Now that’s utilizing your head straight away! !! How many of these rear engine, mid engine cars are on the road, along with the driver can barely see what he’s doing when it comes down to backing into a parking space? Simplistic genius.
Well, as it stands now, the McLaren 650S is still on tour, and it is actually heading to the Geneva Motor Show, where it will no doubt be gawked at, fawned over, and asked if someone may be placed on the waiting list for starters. Hopefully, in my case, I want to see this car in the next expansion pack of Need For Speed Rivals. Until then, I will spend a little time looking at the picture than it, and then dreaming about how cool it would be to sit in one, and take on a number of laps at Willow Springs. Until the next one people, have fun & Today on Gearheads I wanted to take some other approach at what my subject matter could be. Instead of talking about a particular car, or truck, or throwing out some comments about how precisely some new car is going to be the following big thing, I wanted to complete something just a little different. Today we’re going to look at an individual, a man who has been in, and a part of the automotive world for quite sometime now. His name is Chris Harris.
For a man who has been banned from driving Ferraris, to finding his back inside ofLawrence German them, just so he can drift the tires off of them, it’s funny how he doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page. Well, what are you going to do? There are plenty of people in the world today who are moderately famous, and don’t have Wiki pages, with no, I’m not going to drop any names just to prove that point. Anyway, Chris Harris is the shooting star that has found his way onto internet television, aka YouTube, and has simply drifted his enthusiastic, yet prolific style into our hearts.
Being brief, Chris got his automotive start by working with a business called AutoCar, a European based magazine that covered what was hot in the world of automotive news, from a European perspective which is. His complete knowledge of cars, and how they work allowed him to write stunning articles, where he could let the average bloke know whether that Porsche 911 was actually worth buying, or not. Similar to myself, though with much more experience, and seat time under his belt. And speaking of seat time, Chris also was fortunate enough to be an inherit element of a racing team that took part in the 2010 24 Hours of the Nurburgring event which himself, and a few other drivers placed 13th in the overall standings. Which by any means is quite damn beneficial to driving an entirely stock Porsche around one of the more brutally demanding tracks worldwide. Chris’ way with cars, coupled with his semi arrogant British & knowledgeable accent began to infiltrate the minds of those people that not only enjoyed watching cars be put through their paces, but additionally didn’t mind having a laugh or two at his boyish antics, as we move forward.
Gearheads.org Here there exists a man who knows how to race, who is able to perfectly apex a turn for the best line, but somehow always is able to turn a car review in to a one man smoke show. Now, I myself have not seen Chris within an all out drift battle, so it’s reliable advice that he may not stand the opportunity up against the likes of Ken Gushi, or Vaughn Gitten Jr.. Chris’ method of driving could be compared to that from a Frenchman cursing to you in his native tongue. Sure you might be able to gather that he doesn’t like you, and is probably damning anyone to the darkest depths of Hell, but the elegance of what he’s doing is keeping him from being knocked out just long enough in order that you find some small strategy to appreciate his culture, just before you knock him out. You get what I’m saying? In other words, Chris’ drifts that are displayed in just about every one of his reviews are hardly ever brutal, or barbaric, they seem to have an aura of exquisiteness about them. His drifts are generally gentle, and guided with a hand covered in a silk glove. It’s true, although it sounds a little far fetched. Now with the gentility of his drifts, comes the intelligence of his words, and also the ultimate humor of his character. The Things I can say to elaborate on this is simply this, like lots of men, Chris enjoys cars, and enjoys driving fast, nevertheless the difference is, he’s being paid to show it. From the episode of Chris Harris on Cars, where he drove the Ferrari F40, and F50, his grin could be when compared with that of the Kool-Aid man on a summer day. Hell, I wanted to drive too, though i watched that episode twice, and not only did If only I was there to share that overwhelming amount of enthusiasm with him. To discover him bouncing around within the driver’s seat with his eyes open wider than the doors of Lindsay Lohan’s last rehab center, was awe inspiring. I can say this simply, I’m a jealous bastard. Plain, and simple.
To some certain degree, Chris Harris has always been able to make a part of his reviews. Whether they’ve been good reviews, or bad, his honesty shows through brilliantly every time. I always say, you can’t knock a man as being honest with regards to a car, since he will give it to you straight every single time. We have seen times where I would hate to hear him down play a car because his personal preference didn’t allow him to enjoy the vehicular spoils of the day, but all I really could do is appreciate what he said, and what he was doing. Between himself, Matt Farrah, and some of the other editors in the Motor Trend channel, obtaining a genuine sensation of what a car feels like with you not even being within one thousand miles of your car at hand, is something much more than amazing.
Together with the automotive industry standing where it is today, and more unknown auto Chris-Harris2makers popping up with cars that either don’t make a little bit of sense, or are actually pretty spot on with what their main purpose is, it’s a great to know that we all have a person to look to for, for a bit automotive sport. Yes, we have now Top Gear via the BBC, and Jeremy Clarkson is actually a funny old chap, who would be glad to pawn off his wife for an adulterous affair with a MP4-12C, but how much of that can we take nowadays? The Terrific Trio of BBC’s Top Gear is entering upon their 21st season now, and I often notice that they are a bit long inside the tooth. Once they were to get it done like Chris Harris will it, there could be a lot bigger following, even though their funny and all. Besides, what’s going to take place when either Clarkson? Alternatively, May breaks a hip during another jaunt to Africa or anything? That’s just my opinion, you don’t need to take it to seriously.
With all of that said, I need to wrap up this diverting, and under informative tribute about Chris Harris to a close. I’ve mentioned his drifting, his way with words, (sort of) and what he does for the automotive community. (sort of) So let me close with this, for males who doesn’t have a bunch of information about himself online, I like watching what he does with cars, every time he gets into one. Every time a guy, or man can hold my attention with some intelligent verbatim, in the mean time rounding corners like a thief in the night, I’m sold, even though only a few people impress me, and this goes formusicians and actors, and politicians. Chris Harris, you’re the man. Kudos bro. safe. Thanks for Reading.
