OVC 1965 Shelby GT350R Competition First Drive Review | Mustang time machine

It's a million bucks worth of fun for just $250,000

One hundred miles per hour, 6,000 rpm. I shift up to fourth gear at the start/finish line and return the throttle to the floor.

2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider

Our First Drive of the McLaren MP4-12C Spider was nearly one year ago, when the automaker invited us to Malaga, Spain, for its introduction. While we had plenty of seat time during our initial orientation, nothing tops wringing out an exotic in your own backyard when you can focus on the vehicle and not worry about learning the apexes on a foreign track.
