In honor of McLaren’s 1st F1 victory, the 720S Spa 68 Collection was born. McLaren Special Operations (MSO) was commissioned by a Brussels dealership to build 3 models for sale. The McLaren 720S Spa 68 is a stunning car in MSO Bespoke Anniversary Orange paint. The rear wheel arch has a silver tracing of Spa-Francorchamps, where the victory took place. Bruce McLaren, the founder, won his fourth F1 victory at this event. But, it was the first ever victory under the McLaren manufacturer name. Furthermore, the car has text written on it stating “1st McLaren F1 Victory Belgium Grand Prix 9th June 1968 – Bruce McLaren”. Obviously, this is a straightforward statement of the reason for the model.
The McLaren 720S Spa 68 Collection commemorates one of McLaren’s largest milestones in it’s racing career. But, Bruce McLaren was obviously not driving a 720S in 1968. He was behind the wheel of a McLaren M7A, a historic vehicle for the company. This car had the signature papaya orange livery, that MSO mimics today. On the current Spa 68 model, there are satin black split five-spoke wheels. Obviously, high-quality tires meant for track fit these wheels. Finally, the interior is a mix of black Alcantara with orange stitching. McLaren sure does know how to make cars unique!

Unless, it is already too late – which it may be. Overall, the Spa 68 is an awesome vehicle that’ll be another collectible piece for any McLaren fan.

2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS – Microsoft Xbox One Elite Controller – SCUF Gaming – EuroDrift
If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the new king of the Nurburgring Nordschleife, then you may have an opportunity to do so… or somewhat. A 911 GT2 RS inspired limited edition Xbox One controller is planned to hit market on October 7, 2017. While the real car starts at around $293,200 MSRP, the controller will have a price tag of $299.95. At this price, you could purchase a high quality Thrustmaster steering wheel or even a console itself. But at this price, compared to the car, this is the closest way to get a tiny bit of the experience at a margin of the price.
Lap Time Record on Nurburgring Nordschleife
Recently, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS broke the lap time record on Nordschleife leading it to legendary status. This isn’t surprising as GT2 has 700 horsepower and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. This allows the car to hit 60 mph in only 2.7 seconds and a top tested track speed of 211 mph. With RWD and a 3.8-liter six cylinder twin-turbo engine, this car is a beast on the track. On top of this, the car has a few other special accessories.
7-Speed Porsche Doppelkuppling (PDK) Transmission
The 911 GT2 RS’s engine is coupled with a performance based 7-speed Porsche Doppelkuppling (PDK) transmission with short gear shifts and different modes. PDK Sport, a dynamic mode, is included with this transmission. For the brakes, Porsche uses ceramic composite brakes (PCCB). On the front, lightweight bi-xenon headlights brighten up the roadway ahead. Lastly, the car is sold with the Porsche Track Precision application.
Forza Motorsport 7
Back to the Porsche 911 GT2 RS controller. Porsche collaborated with SCUF Gaming and Turn 10 Studios to develop this controller. The initial plan was to release it alongside Forza Motorsport 7 but the actual release date is quite a few days past that. Regardless, this controller will be the shining prize of a handful of gamer’s collections. If you love the quality of a Porsche, this controller brings you the experience at a fraction of the cost.
Alcantara on an Elite Xbox One Controller
As expected, the controller sports the elite controller’s body with modifications. The silver meshed with black and red highlights resemble the interior of the real car. To increase this thought, the controller has hand-stitched Alcantara on the back. We can only imagine that it adds a nice feel to the gaming experience. But, also an expensive enhancement.
Beautiful, but Pricey GT2 RS Limited Edition Controller
Although the price is quite steep at $299.95, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS controller will most likely sell out quickly. The beauty of the car has been worked into the Xbox One elite controller in many aspects. As a long time gamer, this controller would be a great addition to my collection, as well as any other gamers. Unfortunately, I don’t intend to purchase this controller for myself at this time. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on this controller, be sure to treat it with respect, just as you’d treat the real car.
