Largest Mustang Gathering In The World Breaks Records

  Largest Mustang Gathering In The World Breaks Records This is the largest Mustang gathering ever! Mustang owners flocked from all over Europe to meet together in what has set a new world record for the most Ford Mustang cars to gather in one location at a time. The new number to beat is 1,326 Mustangs, beating out the prior record of 960 vehicles at one gathering - this record was also set by Ford in Toluca, Mexico back in December 2017. This was a treat to see as there were Mustangs there from every generation and trim, and there were even several rare ‘Stangs in attendance.

The 765 LT is the lighter, faster and meaner version of the already silly 720 S -- we've got no choice but to stan. Given how nimble the standard 720 S feels, the 765 LT should probably come with a voucher for a free chiropractor visit to help realign your neck and spine after a track day.

But when has too fast ever been a problem for McLaren ? It’ s a car we all knew was coming, but that Want to show off all that lovely engineering ? You’ll need the optional engine viewing port on the McLaren says the 765 LT is still a road car at heart, though we’re not sure we’d want to pop to Lidl in

There are certain letters or designations that, when applied, immediately lets you know that a car is going to be all about. With Porsche its GT and then a number, with Honda it's Type R, Nissan has the GT-R and McLaren has it too with LT.

Bosch creates a sun visor that automatically blocks the sun

  Bosch creates a sun visor that automatically blocks the sun The Virtual Visor could reach productionThe Virtual Visor takes the form of a rectangle that swings down from the headliner to block sunlight, but the similarities between it and the sun visor in your daily driver stop there. It's a transparent LCD screen that uses an occupant-monitoring camera to track shadows across the front passengers' faces. Artificial intelligence then identifies facial features, like the nose, the ears, and the mouth, and uses this information to tint only the parts of the visor through which sunlight hits the passenger's eyes, creating a shadow that looks like a robotic Venetian mask. The rest stays transparent.

The 2021 Turbo S gets its hustle from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine that is based on the current 911 Carrera's six-pot. McLaren 765 LT is the 755 - hp proof that Woking ' s engineers have too much free time .

Woking ' s 720S flagship gets the Longtail treatment with a power boost and hefty weight loss. Even more impressive is the fact that engineers say the 765 LT ’s lap time at “a reference track” undercuts that of the 720S by about 2.5sec, and that its braking distance from 125mph to a standstill is 110

LT stands for longtail, and it's a throwback to one of history's best cars, the McLaren G1 GTR, which had a substantial amount of bodywork whacked onto the rear end of it to improve its top-end performance at Le Mans.

Previous LT-model road cars include the 675LT , which was -- you guessed it -- a super limited-edition 675-metric-horsepower lightweight version of the 650S . It wasn't appreciably longer than a 650S, but that's not really the point. The good news is that the mad scientists from Woking are bringing us another LT -- this time called not-at-all-confusingly the 765LT.

The 765LT -- based on the 720S --was initially set to make its grand world debut in Geneva, but because we're now living out the real-life version of Stephen King's The Stand, that's not happening. Instead, McLaren has opted to debut the vehicle online at its gorgeous home office. Lemons, lemonade and all that.

So, what has McLaren done to the already too-fast-for-its-own-good 720S to make it worthy of the LT designation? Well, McLaren doesn't exactly have a reputation for being lazy, so kind of a lot, actually. To start, it's 176 pounds lighter than the 720 -- not a car with a reputation for being portly, mind you.

Next, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 has been shall-we-say adjusted to produce 755 brake-horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. This, combined with its svelte curb weight of 2,709 lbs (dry and in its lightest configuration), gives it a power-to-weight ratio of 614 hp per ton.

Last Time Out. Pole Position. Ok cool because Merc was able to shave a fuckload of mass off the W11. Can't say how much without being identified but I will tell you there is ballast all over the fucking shop now. There was some " proof " that was posted, but not with any date / username combination.

Among the most famous ones were Field Marshall James Bruce, Field Marshall Barclay de Tolly and Admiral Thomas Mackenzie, all of them of Scottish 'Doctor Who' is a British science-fiction TV series that follows the adventures of a time -traveling alien, called the Doctor, and his human companion, as

Next, the gearing in the dual-clutch transmission has been changed to better match the way that the engine builds boost, offering a 15% improvement -- McLaren claims, anyway -- in throttle response.

The 720S' brilliant suspension gets tweaked for a more racetrack-friendly feel. Specifically, McLaren altered the springs and dampers, the front track width was increased, the front ride height was lowered, and the software that controls the brilliant hydraulic chassis control system was updated.

Given how nimble the standard 720S feels, the 765LT should probably come with a voucher for a free chiropractor visit to help realign your neck and spine after a track day. The levels of mechanical grip promise to be simply astounding, but of course, then there's the aerodynamics to consider.

For aero, McLaren left essentially no stone unturned in the quest for downforce. It altered the front bumper and splitter, but also the front floor. It changed the rear wing out for a larger LT-spec unit and even swapped the rear bumper, rear diffuser and side skirts for more aggressive pieces. All these body bits are made of carbon fiber, too -- because, duh.

The 765LT is the lighter, faster and meaner version of the already silly 720S -- we've got no choice but to stan.

Other highlights include a titanium exhaust system, ultra-lightweight wheels with titanium lug nuts, silly-big carbon-ceramic brakes with calipers purloined from the Senna and big carbon cooling ducts to help keep them cool under duress.

Finally, the McLaren 765LT doesn't come with a radio or air conditioning -- because mostly race car -- though the reasonable buyers out there will probably add at least the latter back in at no cost. If A/C is good enough for an LMP1 car, it's good enough for your track toy, broseph.

McLaren will only build -- you guessed it -- 765 of these bad boys, so if you've just sold an app or you're the child of a despot, and you want one, act quickly because they're probably going to go quick -- see what we did there? Pricing isn't yet available, but Macca promises it'll come soon though we suspect that it's going to be one of those "if you have to ask" situations.
