You want a McLaren? You know, the car made by the folks who usually only do Formula 1? All you need is exactly €200,000. Or $262,940 in today’s dollars. According to Automobilwoche [sub], that buys you:

  • A twoseater made from carbon fiber
  • That weighs only 1300 kilo (2,866 lbs)
  • Eight cylinders that make 600hp
  • A top speed to 320 km/h (200 mph)
  • And only 300g CO2 per kilometer!
  • A design that looks like it’s coming from the Fulton fishmarket.

    300gr/km CO2? I’m pleased to see its putting out that much plant food per kilometer.
    Thanks to the PIIGS crisis, if they keep it priced in Euros, it may become a real bargain in America. ;)  Unless the US bails everybody out with our new Weimar dollars.

    I saw one of these Mclaren’s testing near my house recently and I can confirm it sounds exactly like that GT5 video.

    And on another note, how did GT5′s official release sneak past my radar? I’ve been waiting for this forever! It is the only reason I’d ever want a PS3, at this point. Or for that matter, any modern game system. Oh, the hours I’ve spent playing the rest of the GT series!
     
    The McLaren’s $262,000 would pay off my house twice over and still leave enough money to buy a gently used CPO BMW 750Li just for kicks. A man’s gotta have his priorities.

    Speaking of the GT5, it’s quite nice – can definitely recommend it. It is hardly finished, with several early bugs still to be ironed out, the loading times are a pain and the damage modelling only starts coming into play from level 20 (with full effects from level 40), only 200 of the 1000+ cars are of the premium kind (with the new rendering, which is neigh on photo quality), the AI still leaves a bit to be desired…
     
    But all in all it is a fantastic game nevertheless and well worth your time and the $60. Try out the go-karting – some of the most visceral thrills early on in the game!
