    1382455740

    Yesterday McLaren released official performance stats for the new P1, including a blistering 2.8-second 0-62 time, along with additional acceleration and braking figures.

    1382054520

    If there's one thing we've learned from the latest video from Drive, it's that the combination of Chris Harris and David Coulthard will produce some very quotable moments. Take this exchange, for example. DC: "We are by some way the slowest." CH: "But we're in a class of three cars, ...

    Video: 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 clocks 7:37.47 Nürburgring lap time
    1381842120

    Muscle cars, as their name implies, are historically more about muscle than they are about the performance it brings. 0-60 and quarter-mile times, sure, but not lap records on twisting and turning road courses. But Chevy is out to change all that with the latest Camaro Z/28. The Bowtie brand has ...

    Rumormill: McLaren P1 clocks 7:04 on Nürburgring
    1378222200

    Acceleration times and top speeds are all well and fine, but there are few bragging rights quite as hotly contested as a Nürburgring lap time. The current king of the hill is the Dodge Viper ACR, which managed to hustle around the Green Hell in 7:12.1. But that looks poised to be de-throned ...

    1377712740

    You don't have to be German to test your car at the Nürburging. You just have to be serious about beating the Germans on their own home turf. That's why Nissan tests its GT-R at the Nordschleife to challenge the Porsche 911, and why Cadillac – which is no less serious about putting up ...

    1377032460

    1377025140

    We've heard engine noise from the McLaren P1 before, most recently from its run up the hill at Goodwood, and when McLaren F1 driver Sergio Perez lapped the Top Gear test track.
