As head of the McLaren Group, Ron Dennis has been responsible for some devastatingly fast cars. Like the iconic McLaren F1 supercar, and the new MP4-12C that succeeds it – not to mention countless championship-challenging grand prix cars. Unfortunately for Ron, though, he won't be able to drive any of them. At least not on the road, anyway, and not for the next six months.
My friend Dennis in Washington decided one day to make his Mazda truck really green. But instead of installing a revolutionary and complex powertrain, he decided to go modest and install the simplest carbon capture device on the cargo bed: he grows plants on it. Literally. I believe this even adds some kind of poetry to the simple act of driving.

With websites like ours getting constantly updated as the news emerges, magazines are increasingly becoming an outdated relic for delivering automotive news to enthusiasts (like yourself, reading this post).
