The Evo: Building The Ultimate Ferrari Dino

Straight away you realize something’s a bit different about this Dino. The wheels are beefier, the arches are angrier, the sound it makes doesn’t sync with your memory of these cars (probably because there are two extra intake trumpets underneath the transparent engine cover), and while the badging looks factory-correct, you don’t think there was ever an Evo version of the mid-engined sports car named after Enzo’s tragic son.

The car is a one-off, and it’s part of the venerable collection of classic and modern Ferraris owned by collector David Lee. By borrowing a block from the F40, losing the turbos, boring it from 2.9 to 3.6L, and fixing twin banks of velocity stacks, David’s “Monza 3.6 Evo” is a naturally-aspirated screamer that combines modern performance with the Dino’s ageless style in a package that doesn’t compromise on either end.

Reveal: The McLaren 600LT in Stealth Grey by MSO

The ‘McLaren 600LT in Stealth Grey by MSO’, produced by bespoke division McLaren Special Operations, is set to have its global reveal on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 26.

Finished in a Stealth Grey MSO Bespoke paint, this car features a wide selection of upgrades from both the MSO Defined catalog & MSO Bespoke customer choices, giving a preview of how much personalization can be incorporated into McLaren’s lightest, most powerful road-legal Sports Series car.

Introduced in July at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the McLaren 600LT epitomizes the McLaren philosophy of producing lightweight sportscars and supercars that deliver extreme performance and exceptional driver engagement. Featuring the unique LT top-exit exhaust, the car delivers 600PS and can sprint to 60mph in just 2.8 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of 204mph.

“MSO Bespoke was established to help customers realize their dreams and allows an almost limitless level of customization where imagination is the only restrictive factor.  With MSO Defined we offer a range of personalization beyond the standard factory options,” commented Ansar Ali, Managing Director of McLaren Special Operations.  “For this special 600LT we have combined a sprinkling of both to create a car that showcases the lightness and track-focused performance of this latest Longtail variant.”

The exterior of the car is distinguished by a Stealth Grey Bespoke paint finish with a Matt Black and McLaren Orange Exterior Pack to accent the car’s aerodynamic features. The iconic Visual Carbon Fiber Roof Scoop, inspired by the legendary McLaren F1 Longtail, is a key MSO Bespoke addition and operates as a fully functional air intake system that invigorates the driving experience with its active air induction sound. A track telemetry camera is also seamlessly integrated into the scoop cover to record inspirational moments.

Other MSO Defined options on the car include all three Carbon Fibre Upgrade packs available for the 600LT, which include door mirrors, exterior door inserts front splitter, rear bumper, diffuser, and rear deck and service cover.  An MSO Defined Carbon Fiber Roof and Cantrails, plus Carbon Fiber Front Fender Louvres – which help to further reduce weight – are also fitted. Ultra-Lightweight 10-spoke Forged Alloy Wheels with a Gloss Black finish complete the overall ‘Stealth’ look.

Inside, the occupants are reminded of the 600LT’s track-focused heritage with a myriad of MSO touches including Super-Lightweight Carbon Fiber Racing Seats – taken straight from the McLaren Senna – featuring a McLaren Orange contrast stitch to mirror the exterior striping; a Carbon Fiber Interior Upgrade Pack including central tunnel and door insert panels; and the harness bar and 6-point harnesses from the MSO Clubsport Pro Pack.

The interior’s character is further transformed by the presence of the visual carbon fiber roof scoop cover incorporated into the headliner and the twin visual carbon fiber intake hoses for the scoop that are seamlessly integrated into the 600LT’s cabin design.

Adding a touch of extra luxury is the upgraded 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins Audio System for enjoying those drives to the track, while beautiful detail touches that complete the picture include Bespoke Embroidery in the headrests, the discrete etching of ‘600LT’ on the throttle pedal and a Bespoke set of hand-painted keys that unlock the passport to 600LT adventures.

Reveal: The Eagle Squadron Mustang GT

The 700 horsepower Eagle Squadron Mustang GT was designed as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force and the heroes of the Eagle Squadron – volunteer U.S. pilots who flew combat missions alongside British pilots over Europe prior to the United States entering World War II. 

A powerful work of art

Visually stunning and unmistakably aggressive, the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT – painted in a camouflaged design to match the original Eagle Squadron Spitfire aircraft – features Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Mustang RTR carbon fiber wide-body kit and complete design package, including front chin spoiler, rear diffuser, upper grille with integrated lighting and a Gurney lip added to the Performance Pack rear spoiler. Front turning vanes, dive planes, rear flow conditioners and rocker splitters are also fitted.

Under the hood, a Ford Performance supercharger kit first introduced at the 2017 SEMA show helps the Ford 5.0-liter V8 churn out its 700 horsepower and 610 lb.-ft. of torque at 12 psi of boost on 93-octane fuel while maintaining the factory warranty. The car is fitted with an RTR Tactical Performance Suspension Package – with adjustable MagneRide dampers, Ford Performance lowering springs and RTR adjustable sway bars. The one-off Mustang wears staggered RTR Aero 7 two-piece forged wheels with 285/30-ZR20 front and 305/30-ZR20 rear Nitto NT555 tires.

Inside, a custom leather interior features Recaro racing seats with embroidered Eagle Squadron logo. A hand-engraved shift knob made from metal melted down from an F-35 Lightning carries over the logo, and a one-of-one hand-engraved badge made from genuine Spitfire aluminum adorns the dashboard.
