AutoComplete: McLaren's BP23 will be near-Bugatti moneyPlus: Honda's Civic Si to be light on torque, UK cops use double-decker buses to catch motorists.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. Mclaren's long awaited successor to its legendary F1 road car is coming together, and it's going to be expensive. Almost Bugatti Chiron expensive. The 3-seat BP23 Hypercar will reportedly wear a 2 million pound price tag. That's $2.5 million to us Americans. All 106 examples were apparently pre-sold before the car was even announced to the public. Don't worry. It wasn't going to be street legal in the US anyhow. We've been in a froth over the forthcoming civic type art for a while And are eagerly awaiting Honda's next SI, too. But if the latest reports are accurate, consider us a little excited. That's because according to an email promotion attributed to Honda, the SI will only offer 192 pound-feet of torque. Not only is that almost 100 shy of the CTR It's well down on rivals like VW and GTI, and Ford's Focus ST. Hopefully the Civic SI's 1.5 leader turbo will be big fun to rev to make up the shortfall. Some police in the UK are taking to iconic heights to catch scofflaw drivers. Cornwall and Devin officer's are using Britain's famed double-decker buses as surveillance tower. The goal, to catch unsuspecting motorists who are illegally using mobile phones and failing to wear seatbelts. The novel mobile campaign racked up over 130 infractions this weekend alone.
