Vehicle News Update: McLaren appears to have mastered the art of burying good news. At exactly the moment everyone was wrapping their last few presents and heading down to the pub to see in Christmas, it announced some very startling numbers for its Speedtail hypercar.
Nevertheless, said hypercar has lived up fully to its 250mph promise, signing off its development by achieving its incredibly neat top speed over 30 times. At a pretty cool location, too: the old Space Shuttle landing strip at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. If ever there was two-week-old news that deserved some belated airtime, it’s this.
