    It gets good mileage for a car of its performance level, but I only see 22 EPA. You may have seen European estimates, their “gallon” is about 20% larger than ours and they use more lax testing procedures.

    I’m sure they will be. Electric cars have a lot of good things going for them, but i’m sure the internal combustion engine will be popular with enthusiasts for many more years.

    I completely agree. It is a completely souless factory. Just take a look at Koenigsegg´s factory. It´s not huge and fancy, but the cars made there completely outclass the cars made in this factory. The way McLaren handles the drive guy is also boring compared to the detailed look you get into the parts of the Koenigsegg Agera

    True, althought in my opinion that´s not what´s important. An amazing looking factory doesn´t have to produce amazing cars, or a not so good looking factory can produce even more amazing cars than these; take Koenigsegg as an example. In my opinion it´s the car that is important.

    Actually the F1 never turned a profit so you’re talking complete nonsense.McLaren Automotive started in 1988, long before it was decided that BMW would design the engine for it. Gordon Murray originally asked Honda to design the engine but they weren’t keen on having a supercar with just a Honda engine. Other engine manufacturers were consulted. As it were Murray had experience working with BMW in his Brabham days (won the drivers’ title in ’83) so it made sense.You sir are a fool.

    I don’t disagree with the first point, but you should know those aren’t measurements, it’s the percentage of reference points measured for that vehicle. A 20% differentiation wouldn’t allow the body panels to fit. I work on aircraft and even a 1% differentiation would prevent a part from fitting, at all, where it belongs.

    Not that I could afford it anyways but I would never spend this much on a product where they waste development time and effort to ensure that the radius and diameter of the tubing that makes up the parts holders is identical. Nor would I buy anything where the geometry, car to car, differs by as much as you can see at 12:05. I’ll stick to my BMW. The company where Mclaren sourced the engines for the great F1 that gave them the money to create such a factory.

    Beautiful subject matter, however writing was not up to par. If research was done prior to visiting the center, it feels like it was limited and vague. There was little to no substance. The design center is beautiful as are the cars on display. Find an angle, build intrigue, reveal big picture. The anecdotal references were strange and uninspiring. Homework: Henry Catchpole’s review for EVO; succinct, informed, and passionate. J.F. a suggestion: storytelling. Good luck! ps: next time no sneakers

    Enjoyable to watch but really most of this whole car design, manufacturing technology to make the car and so forth is just common sense. I would really like to start seeing cars with less components (to save on weight and price) as well as new questions being brought up like new designs on tires, aerodynamics and material science (such as body panel construction). A lot of these “new cars” are really not new at all, they just don’t want to put themselves out of jobs.

    The whole car is boring pal. No passion in the design,just numbers. You don’t even drive the thing. The computers do everything.The Ferrari is superior because it’s much more of a drivers car. Sure this thing is faster but only if you drive it like Mclaren wants you to. If I put down this much money for a car I want to drive it however I want. I can do that with the Ferrari anytime I want + I get a waaay better sound to go with it coming from an award winning,naturally aspirated engine. 🙂

    i guess, i forgot or should have said that mclaren is doing good for the economy in a short term. i see what you mean but the only thing that concerns me is that, though they help other businesses in investing heavily in their facility, mclaren wouldn’t get enough return out of it, due to the financial instability. but then again we never know when it’ll end and maybe investing now rather than later would be a better decision. that’s if we’re at a recovery.

While the Stig had been switched between the series as far as the Top Gear times are concerned and it appears the second sting is faster considering his times on similarly performing vehicles.

    I don’t disagree. Electromagnetic suspension (on the MP4), which by the way was developed by Bose, is superior. I would even say it’s better then the F1 Push-Rod suspension (not sure though). However, I still don’t believe the wheel placement can be felt as accurately because of the amount of energy the system absorbs. Energy is absorbed by the suspension giving less information to the driver. Not saying it is worse, on the contrary. It greatly improves the cars performance.

    “more feel” might be comming from the fact that the steering system is not designed as good as it should and so it resists imputs and the suspension does a bad job in dampening shock recieved on the front axle. Both car’s steering wheels are mechanically linked to the font wheels and any reaction they have would be transmitted directly to the steering wheel.

    Like Dislike
  186. MotoringHeaven 5 years ago

    I think it’s more accessible because there’s more feel in the car. Obviously I’ve never driven either, so it’s a guess. But do note that better suspension is better for control, but doesn’t mean the driver gets the response from the steering wheel as much as he would like. So you’re right. And wrong, depending on what you consider to be ‘better’. And yes, oversteer is exciting;)

    In terms of sheer performance on a track the 458 does indeed beat the MP4-12C, but MP4-12C is the most ‘driveable’ supercar on the market. All journalists say that. I haven’t heard a single complaint about how the MP4-12C performs on a normal road, where the cars are used most of the time 😉

The two negative points are “where’s the motor?” and JF needs to dress the part more — overall these are minor points because you are showing the world something that probably only McLaren owners and a few dignitaries have seen to this point!

    On a quality control level, which is what counts from an engineering standpoint, they’re on a similar level and in some cases at a higher level than many aerospace and space manufacturers. The question of which factory looks nicer isn’t so important. I may be wrong, but I’d wager that the Mp4-12c is built to far stricter quality and dimensional tolerances than any vw.

    Is this factory really that unusual? It has some nice lighting, and some nice tiles but much of the systems are just the same as other recent car factories. The VW Pheaton Dresden factory is more interesting, lighter probably just as advanced and more unusual in my opinion, it even has a wooden floor! But then again I have visited neither.. I think McLaren could have gone further with this building if they wanted to make something amazing and advanced. That applies to the car also. Sorry Ron.

    I think JF looks like JF. Its all about the story, the feel, and the message.

    I loved everything about this video except the host! This guy sucks big time….I really like CHRIS HARRIS, he should do more reviews….

    12 years is a long time to be working for a team and perhaps he’s looking to be challenged rather than be content.And JF- please don’t wear a suit (or cut your hair). Maybe when you’re 50 but for now just be passionate about cars.

    He’s at least doing something you will never get to do. You’re probably just jealous.

    This dude has a face for radio and a voice for silent film. After seeing this McLaren should have a lifetime ban on bloggers. Also, the questions were mind-numbingly banal. “Filler, filler filler, filler filler?” “Stock answer” “Hmmm, filler.” Takes some mad skillz to make a video with a McLaren in it unwatchable.
