Uptown Passover

This Passover, we’re taking our seder “uptown”. Hope your Pesach is as funky fresh as can be!

This song and all Six13 songs are completely a cappella — created with nothing but the human voice.

Speaking of which, we released our brand new album TODAY! It’s called Six13, Vol. 6: Thirteen. It We’re extremely proud of it and hope you’ll buy one at Aderet Music or download it on iTunes!

2016 McLaren 570S Coupe

The next McClaren is an “affordable supercar — as others have written, its much more than just another run of the mill 911-fighter.

I really like the styling (but abhor the lack of manual stick shift). The two-tone color scheme really works, building upon what the Audi R8 “Blade” revived.

That orange is reminiscent of Lamborghini (or my Jeep Rubicon), and the stealthy gray is a but subdued for my taste. IMO, the pearlescent blue (seen in X-Box Forza) or even the P1 Yellow (of P1 GTR fame) are better choices than  orange or the gray.

McLaren is getting serious about being more than a niche automaker: They plan a new model launches may every year until 2022.

 

 

 

 

From McLaren:

“The new 570S Coupé is a classic sports car with a mid-mounted engine, rear-wheel drive layout and a carbon fibre chassis. The M838TE twin-turbo V8 engine produces 570PS (562bhp) and 600Nm (442lb ft), with 30 percent of components bespoke to the Sports Series. Power is delivered through a seven-speed SSG transmission and transmitted to the road via Pirelli P-Zero™ Corsa tyres, and this power is brought under control with standard-fit carbon ceramic brakes. The Sports Series has its own newly developed suspension system along with ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ handling settings.”

PERFORMANCE:
0-100 km/h (0-62 mph): 3.2 seconds
0-200 km/h (0-124 mph): 9.5 seconds
Top speed: 328 km/h (204 mph)
