BMW, McLaren to Collaborate on New Supercar

Whenever automakers collaborate on a new project, they usually create a product that combines the strengths of both companies into a great car. Take for example the Toyobaru FRS/BRZ twins, or the McLaren F1. Both cars were created with assets from more than one company and the finished products shine in each respective segment.

Mercedes-AMG 12 Cylinder Halo Car

With increasingly stringent regulations on fuel economy and emissions, it looks like the future is bleak for monstrous eight, ten, and twelve cylinder engines. It seems that everyone is downsizing their engines and strapping on turbochargers, which makes sense if manufacturers want to meet these regulations. But fret not, young automotive enthusiast! Mercedes-Benz believes that there is still a place for engines with a dozen cylinders in today’s ever-more “green” society.

Brabus GT

If you ever thought that the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is underpowered with 469 hp or 503 in S guise, boy do we have some good news for you!
