Jason Tang Photoshoot: 1947 Ferrari Corsa Spyder, oldest complete Ferrari in existence.

"At the Oregon Coast Exotic Car Show we were all fortunate enough to get a up close and personal tour of one of the rarest cars in existence, the oldest complete Ferrari, the 1947 Ferrari 166 Corsa Spyder owned by a James Clark from Vancouver, WA. His father originally bought it for $3800 and passed it on to his son who spent years restoring the car. It truly is a pristine example of how a vintage car should be restored and he plans to pass it on to his son who has already promised to keep it. I had a few moments to take pictures of this beautiful (and LOUD) machinery."

So, let's see what this guy has in his garage.

Three Radicals, a Porsche Carrera, an Enzo Ferrari, a Rolls Royce, a Black Series Mercedes, a speedboat, another boat, numerous race cars, a racecar trailer, an outrageous four-player video racing set-up, pool table, card table, lounge area...and more.

Nice.

More shakedown tests are being undertaken with the new racing version of the McLaren MP4-12C supercar, the brand new McLaren MP4-12C GT3MP4-12C GT3. Components are being calibrated and aerodynamic body structures tested, along with other comprehensive tests on the Silverstone track.

As for the race car itself, the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V-8 as in the production car is used but tuned to race specification. A bespoke paddle-shift system operating an all-new Ricardo-designed gearbox developed specifically for racing has also been fitted. This system eschews the seven-speed SSG dual-clutch Graziano transmission supplied in the standard model.

The MP4-12C GT3 is also around 100 mm wider than the standard production car and features a new suspension system, which was tested in the same McLaren simulator as the company’s F1 cars.

New electrical architecture is also used, as well as a custom Bosch ABS system and Akebono brakes. A new aerodynamics package has been developed in compliance with GT3 regulations, incorporating a new front splitter, door blade, rear wing, diffuser and louvres in the front fenders.

One important note; the MP4-12C GT3 does not feature the road-going MP4-12C’s ‘ProActive’ chassis control system, which negates the need of an anti-roll bar. Instead, the MP4-12C GT3 will use a configuration comprising race-specific roll bars and dampers.
