Via @carthrottlenews - This is the new Super Series car, built to replace the 650S. Derivatives will eventually phase out all the other Super Series models. It has a new engine, too. As per the name, the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged M840T V8 has 720 metric horsepower, or 710bhp, which is enough to catapult it to 62mph in 2.9 seconds and to 124mph in a bonkers 7.8 seconds. Braking to a stop from 124mph takes just 4.6 seconds, and as for top speed, we’re looking at 212mph. - It’s fair to say the engine is a development of the previous 3.8, but McLaren claims a ‘41 per cent new part content’. If you’re wondering where the cooling is coming from, since the 720S does away with the visible side-mounted radiators, cooling is actually taken care of by the double-skinned dihedral doors. Air is channelled through them direct to the radiators beneath the skin. Clever. - These unhinged numbers are also partly down to low weight. The carbonfibre Monocage II structure helps it on the way to a minimum dry weight of 1283kg, or about as much as a small family hatchback. Power to weight is now a nice, solid 553bhp per tonne. With all fluids and 90 per cent fuel the weight is 1419kg. - Inside the 1.2-metre tall supercar will be the trademark portrait-format screen as standard, plus leather, Alcantara and metal switchgear, depending on specification. Underneath is a chassis setup augmented by Proactive Chassis Control II. Will it handle? Yes it will. The transmission is set to stay as a seven-speed automatic with flappy paddles, and the brakes will be the latest carbon ceramics as standard. - The practical among us will see that there are still two storage bays, of 150 litres at the front and 210 behind the seats. The less practical will dig through the specs and find a standing quarter-mile time of 10.3 seconds. Which is incredibly quick for a road car, and remember: even faster ones will come later. - It’s available to order right now, and we can only suspect that there are a few phones ringing in McLaren dealers across the country. Prices are set to start at £208,600 with the first deliveries in May.: HH NEWS Feast Your Eyes On The Outrageously Stunning McLaren 720S Via @carthrottlenews - This is the new Super Series car, built to replace the 650S.

Via @carthrottlenews - If you desperately and regularly need to get three rows of people somewhere fast, Dodge has your perfect solution. - The Durango SRT is a six-seat, 475bhp muscle monster that will hit 60mph in 4.4 seconds and smash the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds, despite sharing size and weight stats with an ocean liner. Top speed isn’t confirmed yet. - With a 6.1-litre Hemi V8 providing the power behind the practicality, the hottest Durango will tow up to 3.9 metric tons as well as catapulting 12 clenched buttocks towards the horizon. Peak torque is 470lb ft at 4,300rpm. - You’re not likely to miss it on the road courtesy of a wider body kit and lower ride height, part of which are front and rear springs stiffened by three and 16 per cent respectively. On the bonnet there’s a functional cold air intake and vents to improve cooling. - Naturally it’s an automatic, which seems fair enough in an SUV, but there are now seven user-selectable drive modes for the driver to play with. Switch to Sport Mode and shift times are 50 per cent faster than standard, while up to 65 per cent of the V8’s freedom goes to the rear wheels. - Manually down-shifting via the steering wheel-mounted paddles activates a rev-matching function to blip the throttle, which is a good thing when the engine is attached to an exhaust specifically designed to be loud, deep and beefy. - As well as Sport Mode, there’s Auto, Snow, Tow, Eco (no idea why) and Valet, which apparently changes the engine’s characteristics to mimic the V6 from the Charger, locking out access to first gear and shifting earlier than normal. Launch control and the paddle shifters are disabled. - For some reason there’s even a Track Mode, with 160-millisecond gear shifts and up to 70 per cent of the torque going to the rear axle. Dodge promises a ‘pronounced rear-wheel drive experience’. - So, if you like the idea of terrifying your wife, children and children’s friends all at the same time, this is the car for you.: HH NEWS Dodge Announces Murica's Fastest Three-Row SUV With Six-Seat Durango SRT Via @carthrottlenews - If you desperately and regularly need to get three rows of people somewhere fast, Dodge has your perfect solution. - The Durango SRT is a six-seat, 475bhp muscle monster that will hit 60mph in 4.4 seconds and smash the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds, despite sharing size and weight stats with an ocean liner.

Budweiser’s Super Bowl Ad to Send Pro-Immigration Message – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 11 days, DonaldTrump has successfully become the least popular president. In his first few days, he’s issued executive orders to ban abortion, increase mortgage insurance rates and implement a controversial MuslimBan. In turn, millions of people across the globe have filled the streets to protest Trump’s actions. Others have used their platform to express their opposition to Trump’s controversial views and behavior. Some managed to make a stand without initially intending to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the wake of one of the biggest televised events, Budweiser went out on a limb, allegedly accidently, by creating SuperBowl ad with a strong pro-immigration message titled “Born the Hard Way.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the ad, the company makes viewers aware that “America’s Beer” was created by an immigrant. It chronicles Adolphus Busch’s expedition from Germany to New York to St. Louis, where he meets Eberhard Anheuser, thus catapulting the brand into the fan-favorite, it is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the commercial was created long before the election, the company seemed to have struck a political nerve by coincidence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The commercial shows the start of Budweiser’s journey, and while it is set in the 1800’s, it’s a story we believe will resonate with today’s entrepreneurial generation – those who continue to strive for their dreams,” the brewer’s vice president said in a press release. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When Budweiser told us they wanted to celebrate those who embody the American spirit, we realized the ultimate story lived within their own brand history,” the ad executive said. “Adolphus Busch is the hero of the Anheuser-Busch American dream story, which makes him the perfect protagonist.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It will be interesting to see how everyone reacts to the commercial when it airs live on Sunday.: Budweiser's Super Bowl Ad to Send Pro-lmmigration Message @balleralert Budweiser’s Super Bowl Ad to Send Pro-Immigration Message – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 11 days, DonaldTrump has successfully become the least popular president.
