Your Summer Ride: The 2018 McLaren 570GT

Driving behind the wheel of the 2018 McLaren 570GT will give even the most dedicated sport car enthusiasts a rush. Not disappointing, the 570GT will provide you with the ultimate sports car experience, perfect for a hot summer day drive or even a long cruise.

The McLaren was designed to be driven by not only car enthusiasts but casual admirers of luxury cars, too. The engine has three modes: normal, sport and track. As suspected, while in the normal mode, the car drives smooth and comfortable. Switch it into track and you’ll feel like a race car driver within seconds. Stepping inside the 570GT, the design is simple yet elegant with several design options to choose from.

What is under the hood is nothing short of impressive, the 570GT has the power to go from 0 to 60mph in just 2.8 seconds and as fast as 100mph in 6.1 seconds with its 3.8liter twin turbocharged V8 engine. Pushing out 562 horsepower and 443 pound-foot of torque, this vehicle is a monster in terms of power. While on open road the McLaren can hit 204mph, which is not recommended for the regular driver.

Test drive this McLaren 570GT at the Ugo Colombo Miami dealership THE COLLECTION.

Jag Drive 305: Meet the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE

Jag Drive 305 is a partnership between THE COLLECTION and World Red Eye where people can get an up-close view at the all-new 2017 Jaguar XE and the innovative Jaguar F-PACE through the experiences of some of Miami’s most notable people. The Glamourai’s Kelly Framel, Something Hippie’s Michelle Chwoschtschinsky, and CrossFit Games athlete Noah Ohlsen will be taking the F-PACE for a ride.

See CrossFit Games athlete Noah Ohlsen and the new Jaguar F-PACE in this Facebook post from Ohlsen:

The F-PACE takes the pure Jaguar DNA of legendary performance, handling and luxury, and adds practicality and room. In fact, the F-PACE is the most practical Jaguar sports car to date. It combines driving exhilaration with efficiency and it contains technologies that improve your driving experience. The Jaguar F-PACE has the capability to be used every day and for every road condition.

 

The F-PACE always feels, handles, and drives like a Jaguar. The advanced chassis and suspension system is an evolution of the configuration used on the F-TYPE sports car. This robust system is lightweight and the Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) software is tuned for optimum control and feedback.  The All Wheel Drive system utilizes the F-TYPE-derived, unique Intelligent Driveline Dynamics software to minimize understeer and for a nimble feel.

The F-PACE performance engines offer a balance between power and economy. Engines include the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder 180HP Turbocharged Diesel from the Ingenium range, the 3.0 liter 340HP Supercharged Gas engine and the 3.0 liter V6 380HP Supercharged Gas engine that can reach a top speed of 155mph with 0-60mph acceleration as low as 5.1 seconds.
