The death on Monday night of Austrian Formula One great Niki Lauda, a triple world champion and non-executive director of the Mercedes team, has cast the showcase race into a different light.

McLaren GT: A Brief Walk Around This Unique Grand Touring Car

The McLaren GT is an entirely new model and the brand’s first true grand touring car. To increase everyday ease of use, braking and steering were optimized for lower speeds. Although intended for long distance driving, the new McLaren GT is still quick as lightning.  McLaren has been on a roll lately, as far as street cars are concerned. They are looking at expanding in a certain way as a company. No, they are not going to make an SUV or a crossover. Perish the thought. No, for a while now, th...
