Feast your eyes on a V-12 based on a pair of LS1 V-8s. This is actually the prototype of the engine which was displayed a year ago at the SEMA show in a wicked 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. The final version uses a custom one-piece block and offers outputs of over 700 horsepower without the need for forced induction or high-octane fuel.

McLaren is working on a new model that will serve as the spiritual successor to the legendary F1, and this week we got a look at a test mule. Don't worry, the final car will look very different. The new model, code-named the BP23, will be the fastest, most powerful McLaren road car to date, and it will even have a central driver’s seat flanked by a passenger seat on either side, just like in the F1.
