1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Rendered as Mid-Engined Classic

We wonder if anybody working at Pontiac ever had the idea of a mid-engined sports car back in the late 1960s. Because this was just the type of crazy car company to try and make it happen.

American car brands aren’t estranged to the idea of mid-engined cars. These usually pop up from the “we’re better than everybody” character trait. You’ve got the Ferrari-slaying Ford GT, for example.

And Pontiac obviously had its own mid-engined machine, the Fiero. We think it tried to deliver something along the lines of a Japanese toy with precision suspension and steering. But GM only approved it thinking it was this economy commuter that got great mileage.

McLaren’s newest lightweight architecture will spawn next-gen electrified supercars

– First car coming in 2021

– Developed at McLaren Composite Technology Centre in Sheffield, UK

McLaren is currently busy working on their new supercar which will also be electrified when it arrives next year. This 570S replacement will be built on an all-new architecture that you can see in these pictures. This new electrified supercar will be underpinned by this new lightweight platform which is developed in-house from the ground up at the British carmaker’s state-of-the-art McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC) in the Sheffield region.

Talking about the new chassis, McLaren says the new flexible vehicle architecture uses innovative, world-first processes and techniques to strip out excess mass, reduce overall vehicle weight. This architecture is as revolutionary as the MonoCell chassis which was the basis of the MP4-12C almost a decade ago. The ultra-lightweight carbon fibre
