Apr 25, 2014  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph  |  2 Comments

Most automakers in the business participate in some form of motorsport at some level. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find one that doesn't. It is, after all, a great way for an automaker to promote its brand and demonstrate its engineering prowess. For some, their involvement in racing runs deeper than it does for others, but there is a handful for whom racing is not just a mere afterthought. Instead, more than anything else, it's what the company stands for — its raison d'être. McLaren is just such a company.... Read More

Pushing the BMW HP2 Sport to the Limits

Apr 8, 2014  |   Contributor: Justin Delaney

When journalists get to try a bike out, they usually have at least two days (or perhaps even a weekend) to become accustomed to the machine and get a proper feeling for it.

Apr 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph

In the late 1980s and early 90s, it hovered around 200 miles per hour: the Porsche 959 was clocked in 1986 at 195 mph, the Ferrari F40 beat that the next year at 203 mph, followed by the Bugatti EB110 at 209 mph, the Jaguar XJ220 at 213, and finally the McLaren F1 at 240 in 1993....
