All This Power In One Place

If it was an assault on the senses you were looking for, there was no better place to be on Earth than Las Vegas, as the sixth annual goldRush Rally began on May 31st. The eight-day run from the Strip to New York City took the drivers through Park City, UT; then Denver, Chicago, Cleveland and Washington DC. If they weren’t exhausted by the driving and partying when they arrived in the Big Apple, they certainly were by the time they left.

Money

The only way most of us will ever get to own any of the cars that took part in the goldRush Rally is if we strike it rich in Vegas. From Bugatti Veyron Super Sports to McLaren 12C’s, all done up in a variety of arresting (sometimes eye-watering) paint-jobs and wraps, the amount of money tied up in these cars was staggering. GR7 in 2015 will be a chance to combine the sights, sounds and smells of the rally with the thrill of the casinos, but in the meantime we can always practice online with GamingClub’s “pure platinum” slots – at least you can play for free there!

Information on McLaren and the brand

There is nothing that expresses the pure McLaren brand than the new McLaren sports car, the MP4-12C.  Although this is a supercar, it is not an inaccessible one and although its £168,500 might seem expensive to many of us, it is the fastest road car that money can buy.

The car is stunningly beautiful. Its 600 bhp of raw power comes from a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and it will take you to 124 mph from rest in just ten seconds. Much of it is constructed from carbon fibre and it has a revolutionary suspension system that uses hydraulically inter-connected dampers.

The car is unmistakably McLaren. It shape is designed to provide the ultimate in aerodynamic performance and by employing the same technology and wind tunnel that is used to design formula One race cars everything has been designed to provide optimum downforce as well a minimising drag.
