This week on evo - £8million McLaren, millionth Corvette and more

A look at the most exciting things from the world of evo this week

By the time you read this, the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be well underway – or may have even finished.

It’s hard to bet against another Audi victory, but stranger things have happened – as our look at the black sheep of Le Mans shows. Or you could just watch a McLaren F1 GTR negotiate Mid-Ohio raceway in the US.

This week, we also released a rather special video – you can watch it, and read our other stories below.

Watch – Ferrari 488 GTB, F40, 458 Speciale

The disruptive cars of Le Mans

Watch – McLaren F1 GTR on track

It’s twenty years since McLaren took its historic Le Mans victory with the GTR. In this video, you can watch – and listen to – a GTR negotiate the Mid-Ohio raceway. Turn up your speakers for this one.

Chevrolet to save millionth Corvette

The millionth Chevrolet Corvette was one of several cars badly damaged when a sinkhole consumed one room at the Corvette Museum in Kentucky. Now, Chevy has begun careful restoration work.

The £8million McLaren F1

Another McLaren piece, but as intriguing in its own way as a GTR on track. Rowan Atkinson’s 41,000-mile F1 has found a buyer, estimated to have paid as much as £8million. Read more here.
