McLaren Names Car after Mark Cavendish

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

I was just surfing around and found this article about the automobile manufacturer, McLaren, naming their new 2013 MP4-12C, after Mark Cavendish. They are even painting the car a “green jersey” satin that changes up in the sunlight. Those guys from England getting sports car named after them and being knighted is a step up for the sport, for sure.

    Does anybody else look to see who’s driving when they see a “Tilford” vehicle going down the highway in the Midwest? Haha. Love the blog.

    Actually, they only named the color after him. The car is still the MP4-12C.

    What’s with the luggage?

    And a few years on when they all come clean as dopers will it still be a step up for the sport?

    The shape of this car makes me think of Leipheimer and how his extraordinary TT abilities were explained by his extremely low frontal area and the way he could make himself more aerodynamic than anybody else in the peloton. Behold the extremely aerodynamic shape of the McLeipheimer. Don’t they explain Cavendish’ sprinting top speed in a similar way too? Sure, no magic. Just plain aerodynamics.
