McLaren F1, McLaren 720S, and V12 Zagato – All In One Weekend

The car season in Boston has already reached the halfway mark, and to transition into the second half of the season July 8th and 9th certainly didn’t disappoint. So far this season we’ve seen two Ferrari 488 GTBs, at least three Porsche 911Rs, and now in one weekend we got the opportunity to see the McLaren F1, the new McLaren 720S, and the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. Here are some of the photos from this past weekend.

At McLaren Boston Cars & Coffee, we were greeted by the 720S which was being delivered to the dealership at the same time as the event was coming to an end. Unfortunately, the covers weren’t taken off, but thanks to a few exposed parts of the car, this 720S is Pearl Orange. This makes it one of the first to land in the United States.

Sadly, this will be the last time we see this F1 as it will be auctioned off later this year. The good news however, is that it will be replaced by the new Mercedes Benz AMG Project One hypercar.

After McLaren Boston Cars & Coffee, I had to stop by and check out the Aston Martin V12 Zagato at Aston Martin of New England. This car is very rare, as only 61 were made worldwide and about six are in the United States.

This was by far the best weekend so far this car season, and hopefully bigger and better things are to come before the winter arrives.

The Boston Car Scene: Where Does it Rank?

With YouTube and Instagram being the catalyst for car scenes across the United States in the 21st Century, car culture has always been considered more prominent in California, Texas, and Florida. Due to our inability to have year round events in the Boston area with our harsh winters and very unpredictable spring and fall months, the summer is really the only time of year we can take our cars out with full confidence that rain will not cancel events. With that being said, where does the Boston car scene rank, and is it underestimated and overlooked to some degree in the car world?

As a Bostonian and having seen the transformation this city has gone through over the past decade, car culture and its relevance in the automotive world is directly linked to our local economy. Over the past few years Boston has attracted business leaders and entrepreneurs, which in turn has brought some very rare exotics to the streets of our historical city.

This year a Pagani Zonda S showed up to Tutto Italiano at Larz Anderson Auto Museum, which is the largest event for Italian cars in the Northeast. Also present was a Ferrari Enzo that drew a crowd immediately when it pulled in. Herb Chambers Lamborghini of Boston held a get-together for Lamborghini owners prior to the event, and when all 18 cars including four Aventador SVs showed up, the entire park and the spectators there flocked to see them park on the lawn to meet their Alfa Romeo counterparts.

It’s not just Italian exotics that have become more of a common sight in and around the city. 2016 has been the year of the Porsche GT3 and GT3 RS. At Cars & Coffee, you can fully expect to see at least 2 of each to show up, and on some occasions even more. With the addition of a McLaren dealership 20 miles south of Boston, and the Aston Martin dealership in the western suburbs, the British car market has increased in popularity as well.

Boston’s car scene may never grow to the size of Florida’s, California’s, or Texas’, but it’s one that deserves a lot of respect. Car events have become fun for many who attend, and with the sightings of Aventador SVs, McLaren 650s, newer Ferraris, and even a Pagani Zonda S, the car community has gained a lot of traction, which is now introducing a new generation of car lovers to brands such as Audi, Mercedes Benz, and BMW, which has a very strong and loyal following.

Bigger and better things are sure to come, especially with the growth that the community has experienced over the past year. Hopefully with the growing number of car photographers constantly posting on Instagram, Boston’s car culture will bring further awareness to car lovers in New England who are looking to be a part of something big, that Texas, California, and Florida has monopolized.

The Boston Car Enthusiast Community Grows By The Day

It’s not even the first day of summer and we haven’t reached the height of the 2016 car season, but car enthusiasts from across New England have come out in droves to enjoy the very best the automotive world has to offer. Maybe it’s that for 5-6 months out of the year our cars are stored in garages and we can’t drive them due to the harsh winters, or the likelihood that more people are beginning to appreciate cars that’s bringing out record breaking crowds. In the past two months alone, the monthly Herb Chambers Cars & Coffee and Boston Cars & Coffee has experienced a significant increase in attendees.

It was estimated that close to 1,000 people attended Cars & Coffee at Herb Chambers Audi/Porsche of Burlington in May. That’s a staggering number considering that these events are held early in the morning. It’s not just the spectator numbers that have increased, but also car owners. There have been an assortment of sports cars, muscle cars, antiques, imports, and exotics that have filled the parking lot, attracting people of all ages to these monthly events.

Boston Cars & Coffee which is also held once a month at Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, MA, had it’s biggest turnout to date on June 12th. The wide variety of cars, and even old military vehicles from Austria, makes Cars & Coffee not only a very fun experience, but also offers opportunities to learn about automotive history, both on the lawn and inside the museum.

Inside, you’ll find an exhibit that changes annually, with this year’s theme being the history of Porsche and BMW. Downstairs you’ll find the biggest collection of antique cars dating back to the very early 1900’s. At Larz Anderson, the atmosphere is ripe for creating car enthusiasts and lasting memories.

Car culture is very much alive in Boston and New England. Growing monthly, the car community is becoming much more diverse, and with that better cars and more history. With warmer weather on the horizon, there’s a very good chance we can continue breaking attendance records at Cars & Coffee for the rest of the car season. It’s a great time to be a member of the local car community, and it’s exciting to see what lies ahead down the road.
