McLaren Can-Am Homage
For those who don’t follow McLaren, the M8A was essentially a race car developed by driver Bruce McLaren and his racing team for their entry in 1968 Can-Am season. The M8A was the vehicle that started it all and its following successors dominated Can-Am racing for four consecutive racing seasons, until the arrival of the Porsche 917. To pay tribute, industrial designer Yosuke Yamada came up with the McLaren Can-Am Homage.

Novitec McLaren GT
Novitec has been known to tune the world’s most exclusive automobiles for decades, and their latest project is definitely no slouch. Starting from the outside, they gave the McLaren GT a new aerodynamic-enhancement kit and paired it with a staggered combination of 20 / 21-inch forged Vossen wheels. If you want to ride a little closer to the ground, sport springs lower the supercar by 25 millimeters.

Only 10 of the 28 McLaren F1 GTR race cars were are Longtails, and this fine specimen, chassis #19R, is being offered by Tom Hartley JNR in the U.K. Why are they called Longtails? It’s because of their stretched bodywork, most noticeably at the rear.
