Coming soon to a mailbox near you? Third USPS van option spied

It's built by VT Hackney and Workhorse

The U.S. Postal Service is currently looking for a replacement for the venerable Grumman LLV delivery truck. We've seen two possible replacements, one from Karsan, and another from OshKosh.

McLaren granted trademark for ‘McLaren GT,’ but is it even a car?

Last year McLaren Automotive Limited applied to trademark the name "McLaren GT" in the U.S. and the UK. Last week the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the request. It's tempting to wonder if we're looking at the name of the new McLaren monster car, the three-seat road-going Ultimate Series offering so far known as BP23. McLaren has, after all, called the coupe a "Hyper-GT" in an official press release.
