It s the first true successor to the McLaren F1 I don t think anybody truly understood the McLaren F1 formula. And I don t think anybody s done a McLaren F1 since the F1. Honestly, I really don t. It s for lots of reasons, the most logical one is that it was absolutely a clean sheet of paper car. Nothing was carry over, and one of the reasons why it became iconic is that every component is engineering art. And as light as it could be. If you re Ferrari or McLaren, or even the smaller guys like Koenigsegg or Pagani, you ve already got a powertrain, you ve got driveshafts, you ve got an engine, a gearbox, you ve got hub carriers, wheel bearings, wishbones, an air con system. If you want to do a new car and you want it to be commercially successful, you re going to use all that stuff.

The app also offers customizable shortcuts for your close friends, so that if you primarily use the app to message two or three people, you can put their profile picture right on the bottom of the camera screen. Take your picture, tap their photo, and swipe up to send. In a demonstration, taking and sending a photo was remarkably fast.Image: InstagramThe second component of Threads is the inbox, which mirrors your direct messages on Instagram but is limited to your close friends. That means it will likely be the shortest inbox in your life mdash; the average user of the close friends list has between one and two dozen people on it, says Robby Stein, who leads product development for Instagram 's consumer app. It includes group chats, but only if everyone involved is a close friend of yours.

Key point: Much of our WWII history makes assumptions or simplifies what happened. For instance, horses were still widely used in addition to mechanized units. The Second World War remains an enduringly fascinating subject, but despite the large number of films, documentaries, books and even comics on the subject, our understanding of this catastrophic conflict, even seven decades on, remains heavily dependent on conventional wisdom, propaganda and an interpretation skewed by the information available. In my new book The War in the West: Germany Ascendant 1939 1941, first in a three volume history, I am challenging a number of long held assumptions about the war, many of which are based on truth by common knowledge, rather than through detailed and painstaking research.My Damascene moment came some years ago when I was being given a tour of the Small Arms Unit at the British Staff College at Shrivenham. I was glancing at a German MG42, known as a Spandau by the Allies. Of course, that was the best machine gun of the war, I commented, relaying what I d read in many books. Says who? Says who? retorted my guide and head of the unit, John Starling. In the next few minutes, he proceeded to deconstruct everything I thought I knew about this infamous weapon: that its phenomenal rate of fire caused massive problems of over heating, that it was widely inaccurate (for which having since fired one, I can now vouch), that is was incredibly expensive to manufacture, massively over engineered and lacked certain simple additions that would have made its handling so much easier. The men supporting this weapon not only had to carry vast amounts of ammunition to feed this thirsty beast, they also had to lumber around six spare barrels because of its readiness to over heat. And each barrel bore multiple inspection stamps. Which were, John told me, an utter waste of time in the middle of total war. Also From TNI: Donald Trump: The Worst President Ever? Also From TNI: Donald Trump: Best President Ever? Also From TNI: Why Japan Really Lost Pearl Harbor I was gobsmacked, but this visit led me down an entirely new line of research, and one that was equally revelatory. I began to realize that almost everything the Germans made was over engineered, from the tanks to gas mask cases to the field jacket of the lowly landser. Eventually, in the German military archives in Freiburg in the Black Forest, I found a memo from early December 1941, signed by Hitler, in which was the line, From now on, we have to stop making such complete and aesthetic weapons. In other words, up to that point, they had been consciously doing so. Needless to say, his instruction was not followed; those all metal, finely designed yet cumbersome and utterly pointless cylindrical gas mask cases were made right up to the end of the war, while still to come was the Panther tank, not to mention the Tiger, with its Porsche designed six speed hydraulically controlled semi automatic pre selector gear box, as complicated and sophisticated as it sounds and entirely unsuitable for front line combat or use by poorly trained young drivers. The transmission on a U.S. built Sherman tank was a robust four speed manual, simply made in vast numbers. America built 74,000 Sherman hulls and engines; Germany built just 1,347 Tigers. Studying such things in detail meant I was now looking at the operational level of war. Any conflict or business for that matter is understood to be conducted on three levels. The first is the strategic that is, the overall aims and ambitions. The second is the tactical: the coal face, the actual fighting, the pilot in his Spitfire or man in his tank. And the third is the operational the nuts and bolts, the logistics, economics and the supply of war. Almost every narrative history of the war ever published almost entirely concentrates on the strategic and tactical levels, but gives scant regard to the operational, and the result is a skewed version of events, in which German machine guns reign supreme and Tiger tanks always come out on top. Studying the operational level as well, however, provides a revelatory perspective. Suddenly it s not just about tactical flair, but about so much more. Britain, for example, decided to fight a highly mechanical and technological war. Steel not flesh was the mantra and that s why the British had a small army, yet still ensured it was 100 percent mechanized. They also developed a vast air force and built a staggering 132,500 aircraft during the war and that s 50,000 more than the Germans. Until the start of 1944, the priority for manpower in Britain was not the army or navy or even air force, but the Ministry of Aircraft Production. Well fed men and women were kept in the factories. Germany, on the other hand, was very under mechanized but had a vast army, which meant it was dependent on horse power and foot slogging infantrymen. As a result of so many German men at the front, their factories were manned by slaves and POWs, who were underfed and treated abominably, and whose production capacity was affected as a result. And if the ability to supply war was key, then in the war in the West, it was the Battle of the Atlantic that was the decisive theater. Yet Germany built a surface fleet before the war, which could never hope to rival Britain or France and in doing so neglected the U boat arm. Despite sinking substantial amounts of British supplies in 1940, it was still nothing like enough to even remotely force Britain to her knees. In truth, there were never enough U boats to more than dent the flow of shipping to Britain. In fact, out of 18,772 sailings in 1940, they sank just 127 ships, that is, 0.7 percent, and 1.4 percent in the entire war. Also From TNI: What Happens If North Korea Nuked Washington? Also From TNI: Iran s Military Could Hurt the U.S. in a War Suddenly, rather than appearing like David against Goliath and backs to the walls amateurs as is so often depicted, Britain emerges once again as a global super power in command of the largest trading empire the world has ever seen, while Germany, despite impressive victories on land early in the war appears to be woefully under resourced and flagrantly squandering what supplies it could call upon. What s more, after the initial glut of conquest booty, the occupied territories swiftly became a drain and burden that had to be manned and which proved a further drain on precious resources. The words Teutonic and efficiency usually go together; in the Second World War, nothing could have been farther from the truth. Image: Wikipedia.

It s a McLaren all right, but the aim is to take the ground from underneath rivals front engined GTs. So here s the McLaren bit: mid engined V8 turbo, twin clutch gearbox, two seat carbonfibre tub. But it s roomier, more practical and more refined.It weighs a mere 1,530kg and is endowed with 620bhp. No one doubts a mid engined car with those numbers is going to be far better to drive down a great twisty road than a much heavier front engined car. But in pursuit of the practical, how much has the McLaren GT sacrificed its supercar edge? And is it practical enough to make that sacrifice (however big or small) worthwhile?
