In order to be road legal, cars have to compromise on various factors which are dictated by regulatory bodies all over the world. In the world of McLaren, the Senna is as close you could get to a race car while complying with road laws and be able to drive them on regular streets. As extreme as it is, the Senna also compromises on a lot of factors to be road legal. There is no doubt that the folks at Woking could make the Senna even better, but while doing so, the car would lose its roadworthiness and can be now driven only on private roads and race tracks. McLaren has just done that with their new car, which takes the regular Senna to extreme levels. This monster is called the McLaren Senna GTR and scroll down to absorb its bonkers looks.

Just like it is for most McLaren cars, every panel is shaped to serve a function. The aerodynamics have been further changed to provide even more downforce than before, a whole ton of it at a speed of 250 kmph. The additional 200 kilograms of downforce is achieved by using a newly designed front splitter which comes with vortex generators on either side and the even more massive rear wing which can land an aircraft. Just like one can see in many LMP1 cars, the end plates of the wing connect the wing to the body of the car.

Beneath the extreme bodywork is a carbon fibre tub which is connected to the 4-litre twin turbo V8 engine. The engine too has been given some more grunt and now generates a total of 814 horsepower and 820 Nm of torque which would push the car to extreme speeds in a matter of seconds. Despite being based on an ultra-lightweight car, the Senna, McLaren have managed to shave off a further 22 pounds of weight from the car. Tipping the scales at a mere 1,188 kg (dry) this car boasts a power to weight ratio of 685hp/ton.

So how much would McLaren charge you for a car like this, which is limited to a mere 75 units all over the world? Prices start at about £1.1 Million which would easily go further up if you decide to pay McLaren Special Operations (MSO) a visit. However, do stop making plans of robbing a bank right now, all the 75 units are sold already and deliveries are expected to begin from this September. Do have a look at some images of this track-ready monster below.

The next Rolls-Royce Ghost is not a ghost anymore, pun intended. The second generation of the extremely popular Rolls luxury car is currently being tested around the world before its introduction in 2020. Currently, the Rolls Royce Ghost sits on BMW’s old 7 Series platform, while both the Phantom and Cullinan are on an all-new, aluminum-intensive, bespoke Rolls Royce platform, so we expect the same custom platform to be used in the new Ghost.

But that’s not the only major change expected in the new Ghost. Electro-mobility is the story here. According to sources, Rolls-Royce is readying their first production series electric vehicle – they have already shown a concept a few years ago. The second generation Ghost is rumored to get an electric drivetrain, along with the conventional gasoline engine.

No details are known at the moment, but the electrification of the brand comes as no surprise considering the Rolls-Royce CEO has hinted at that possibility in the last few months.

“Let’s put it this way, Rolls-Royce will produce its first full EV in the next decade, which isn’t all that far away. We are working on it, but there’s still plenty to do when it comes to charging infrastructure both at home and in the public domain before we have a workable solution for our customers,” Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos said to media.

Now back onto the Ghost topic. Judging by recent spy shots, the new Ghost looks to be getting a significant exterior upgrade. At the front, it gets new headlights that are now more similar to the new Phantom’s, as well as a new grille. The new grille on the Phantom is massive and upright and imposing. This new Ghost’s, though, is wider and less in-your-face. You can tell Rolls Royce treats the Ghost as its “Baby Rolls”.

It’s also smoother, the new Rolls Royce Ghost. Its hood is lower, as is its roofline which is also more sharply raked and the way the C-pillar sweeps down into the trunk is smoother. It looks more athletic than the current Ghost and that’s encouraging.

That’s all the new for now, but expect to learn more about Rolls’ electric plans as the year advances.

#Mercedes AMG SL63 Overview With a legacy that stretches back all the way to the original 300SL Gullwing, the Mercedes-AMG SL-class is a true automotive icon. Recent examples haven’t been as impressive as expected and a host of newer two-door, four-seat grand touring convertibles have rendered it obsolete, but we’re happy to report that Mercedes is working on an all-new SL-class that will launch in 2021 as a 2022 model. The new SL-class will share a platform with the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car, so performance and handling should be a big step up from the 2018 model. Details are scarce so far, but we expect both six- and eight-cylinder engine options, a luxurious and tech-heavy cabin, and a folding fabric roof in place of the last generation’s power hardtop. What’s New for 2022? Mercedes-AMG’s iconic SL-class will be all new for 2022, following a one-year hiatus. The previous generation was canceled after the 2018 model year.Without having a chance to drive the new SL and sample its powertrains, it’s hard to recommend one over the other. We expect Mercedes to offer both an SL53 model—powered by the turbocharged inline-six from the E53 sedan—and a higher-performing SL63 model that should come with a twin-turbo V-8 from the GT. Once we know more about the car’s standard and optional features, we can provide a better recommendation. Engine, Transmission, and Performance We expect Mercedes to borrow two powertrains for the 2022 SL-class from other performance vehicles in its stable. The SL53 will likely [More]

Devastating supercar crash with a McLaren 720s in the Nevada desert is what we found 70 feet off the highway! The car was torn to pieces and covered in mud from the mixing of coolant and dirt! Almost looked like it was on fire but wasn’t.

The Ford GT and McLaren Senna arrived in the garage in a bit of a blur, but how did this all happen? Let’s talk about car financing and how I’ve bought the cars that you see now in my garage. It’s also a very exciting time to announce Shmee150 Finance powered by Harrington Finance that’s here to support others following similar paths to myself. It’s without any question that adding both of these to the garage at the same time was a marked step up from the previous members of the garage and it’s also no doubt that the timing was something of big consideration for me. This is where I met Alex Read, founder of Harrington Finance, and we started discussing the possibilities and options that would be available to me. As you know from how it has resulted, everything came together in a manageable way that’s bespoke to my financial situation and with Alex we can explain a little of how that all worked. We are then developing this further with the launch of Shmee150 Finance powered by Harrington Finance. The topic of “how did you afford these cars” is one of the most frequent so we wanted to be open and honest with a detailed explanation of how it all works. The important thing to remember is that beyond the Shmee150 YouTube channel where you see the videos, it has also become a business carrying out all sorts of tasks behind the scenes with a team of [More]

By Peter M. DeLorenzo

Detroit. With last week’s column still rocking the denizens of Dearborn, a follow-up is in order. I heard from a few Jim Hackett defenders who suggested that my criticisms were overly harsh and that I was borderline unfair in my assessment of the Ford CEO. 

I beg to differ. 

I didn’t suggest that Hackett isn’t a smart man, because he is, but his track record speaks for itself. And despite his accomplishments in other businesses, the automobile business is one of the most difficult and relentlessly complicated endeavors on earth, and if you don’t have an engineering background or haven't been immersed in the business for years, it’s damn-near impossible to get up to speed. And Jim Hackett is perpetually not up to speed. Making vague pronouncements about “fitness” and promises that “it won’t be long now,” while lecturing top managers about how they have to get their minds right - and handing out books by theoretical physicists - isn’t cutting it. It ignores the fundamental fact that Ford is in a real state of urgency at this very moment, and as I said last week, Hackett is simply the wrong guy, at the wrong time, at the wrong company.  

And about this urgency facing Ford right now? The company is in an ominous downward spiral, fueled by a pitiful strategy – or lack thereof – that focuses on contraction, pulling back from regions, making excuses and generally putting the Ford Motor Company on a path to becoming susceptible to a takeover, despite the family’s stock position. The juggernaut F-150 is a phenomenon and responsible for the majority of the company’s profitability, but as hugely successful as that product is, it’s not enough to power the company forever. 

Ford business is down everywhere in the world, in some cases by double digits, and it’s not getting better. What about growth, which is the lifeblood of any company? It’s nowhere to be found in Hackett’s strategy, unless you count the drunken-sailor-like spending on Mobility. Talk about vague. Spending on “mobility” is like betting on the come that’s just not there, and even if it should happen to work out for the company, Ford’s slice of the mobility pie threatens to be miniscule, at best. Needless to say, a “zero growth” strategy does not bode well for the long-term health of the Ford Motor Company.

This has to be unacceptable and worrisome to the board of directors, and with a board meeting coming up next week, the situation may have reached the point of being untenable. And what about those board members? How can they sit back and watch this train wreck unfolding without doing something? Why has it taken so damn long to get worried about the state of the company? It was more than a little apparent, given the warning signs emanating from Wall Street, that the Jim Hackett Show wasn’t exactly garnishing rave reviews early on. And it didn’t get better. One year passed and… crickets. Twenty-three months on now in Hackett’s regime, and absolutely nothing has changed. I would expect the board of directors to recommend substantive changes immediately when they meet. If it doesn’t, I would start worrying about any kind of meaningful future for the Ford Motor Company, the situation is that dire.

As you might imagine, these developments have piled up on Bill Ford Jr.’s plate by the month, and the pressure has to be mounting. He has to share the blame, because he clearly allowed things to deteriorate on his watch, and now it has reached a boiling point. He made a shrewd move in hiring Alan Mulally and it paid off brilliantly, but that is ancient history now. Alan isn’t coming back. Ever since Mulally left, Ford has been in turmoil, with factions facing off and fiefdoms battling it out, which is exactly the way it was before Alan got there.

And judging by what I hear from within Ford, it is worse now than ever before.  

Mindful of all of that turmoil, now Bill Ford Jr. has one more ultra-critical issue to deal with, and that is the fact that the Ford Motor Company is completely devoid of a legitimate succession plan. How can that be, you might ask? Well, Bill Ford Jr. is the chairman, and of all the family members it remains up to Bill to be the captain of the Ford ship. Other family members either aren’t up to it, are not capable, not interested or too young. So, Bill is The Guy for the foreseeable future. 

But who does he turn to? Let’s say Jim Hackett is asked to leave, or departs for greener pastures, or goes back to the mobility arena, where esoteric think tanks and future navel-gazing are part and parcel of the gig? That’s all well and good and would be a hugely positive move for Bill Ford, but then what?

Upon closer inspection – and the board should pay attention to this – Ford is in a world of hurt with a painfully shallow bench and very few executive assets worth noting. For a major American company, this isn’t just tragic, it’s unconscionable. Let’s take a look at the players.

Kumar Galhotra. Ford’s North American boss presents well, at least initially, but there’s really not much “there” there. Bright and personable, Kumar just doesn’t have the heavy-duty chops to be thrust into a CEO role. The knowledgeable people at Ford understand this implicitly. 

Hau Thai-Tang. Hau is brilliant, gifted, well rounded, and Ford’s chief of product development. He has “The Future” written all over him, but he’s too young to be CEO. He needs another seven to ten years, but if I were running a new auto company, I’d poach him… like yesterday.

Jim Farley. As I wrote last May, Farley is the most dangerous executive at Ford. Unfettered by rational thought and untethered by accountability, Ford’s enfant terrible displays a prodigiously short attention span and is burdened by an excruciatingly painful interpersonal awkwardness. To make matters worse, Farley’s belligerent, condescending style of dealing with underlings has made everyone in the company loathe being around him. Farley, not affectionately, is known as "The Two Jims," and interactions with him are a crapshoot, hinging upon whether people encounter the "good" Jim or the "bad" Jim on a particular day. Needless to say, when the "bad" Jim is unleashed, which is basically all the time of late, he leaves a trail of bad feelings and highly questionable decisions in his wake. And, in case you’re wondering, all of those Ford regions underperforming? It’s happening under Farley’s watch. 

Farley has long considered himself to be “the smartest guy in the room” at Ford, much to everyone’s endless chagrin, because the reality is that he isn’t. It’s a carefully crafted façade that is hollow to its core. Farley’s bad executive behavior starts with his inability to listen, considering his own counsel to be by far the best source when it comes to decision making. Farley has left such a bitter taste in people’s mouths that if it were possible, a mutiny would be mounted – with pitchforks raised – to get rid of him once and for all. 

When Mark Fields was exited from the company, not only did Bill Ford bring in Hackett, he brought Farley back from Europe (much to the disgust of many back in Dearborn), and made Joe Hinrichs and Farley co-No. 2 executives reporting to Hackett. And it proved to be a fateful decision, because at that very moment Farley decided that he was very much going to be The Guy.

As I said previously, an emboldened Farley, unfettered and untethered, turned out – predictably – to be disastrous. With his eyes set firmly on Hackett’s job, the very worst of Farley returned to Ford headquarters, only now his most repugnant qualities were magnified and amplified, with no one seemingly able to rein him in.

Besides his now-signature belligerence and rudeness in full view, Farley started to get way out ahead of his skis, making decisions that were puzzling at best and potentially harmful to the long-term health of the company. Having been gunning for Ford’s advertising agency – the WPP-owned GTB – for years for slights both real and imagined, Farley almost immediately put the massive Ford account up for review. This, after WPP/GTB had been involved with Ford for 73 years. Could the advertising be improved? Certainly. But there was a better way to go about it. Destroying a long, fruitful relationship to assuage Farley’s gargantuan ego was flat-out irresponsible and uncalled for.

And then there was the “we’re going to get out of the car business” decision that turned out to be an unmitigated PR disaster, because it was handled poorly and came off as a knee-jerk pronouncement that hadn’t been thought through. It turns out that the idea was Farley’s (no big surprise), wittingly or unwittingly aided and abetted by then CFO Bob Shanks. And internally it bore the signature of a classic Machiavellian move by Farley as well, because Joe Hinrichs was kept in the dark that it was even going down until the very last minute, which is almost beyond comprehension when you think about it. 

Am I picking on Farley? Hardly. I have only scratched the surface in describing this raging egomaniac and his fundamental untrustworthiness, and the sad thing is that there are several other areas he is seeing fit to mess with inside of Ford that will wreak havoc on the company’s future for years. This simply shouldn’t be, of course. One bad actor shouldn’t be causing this much consternation and hand-wringing throughout the enterprise, threatening to jeopardize everything the Ford Motor Company stands for. 

This is another thing that falls squarely on Bill Ford’s shoulders. Both he and Jim Hackett knew that Farley was a bad actor at Ford well over a year ago, and yet nothing was done about it. Where is the accountability? Why has this situation been allowed to continue? Those are questions for Bill and the board of directors when they meet next. Jettisoning Farley would give the company an immediate lift and send the very best signal that things will be different from here on out, and I would hope Bill and the board have the guts to do it. If they care about the future of the Ford Motor Company, Farley will be packing his bags and taking his corrosive act elsewhere.

And finally, there’s Joe Hinrichs. Joe has had to put up with a lot at Ford over the last half decade or so. He was passed over for the top job after Mulally left, and he was passed over again when Bill Ford hired Jim Hackett. In the meantime, Hinrichs kept grinding away, making sure that the company could execute the product plan and build the vehicles the company needed to build. Hinrichs isn’t flashy, but that’s okay. He knows the Ford Motor Company inside and out, and he would be the absolute right choice to replace Hackett. And make no mistake, promoting Joe would give Bill Ford more time – easily five solid years – to really calculate the future direction of the Ford Motor Company, and who will lead it. 

There is no question in my mind that Ford is on the precipice of irrelevance, and the decisions made in the next few weeks could very well determine the future of the company.

I sincerely hope that the right decisions will be made.

And that’s the High-Octane Truth for this week.
