The Sunset Strip is set to get even posher. The Beverly-Hills adjacent region of Los Angeles is home to the Pendry Residences West Hollywood by Montage Hotels & Resorts. The development has added its unique Super Garage to the property. Nicknamed "The Show Room", the 1,719-square-foot private gated garage provides direct access via private elevator to Terrace Estate 608, a two-story penthouse Residence.

With the purchase of the space, the buyer will receive a one-year lease of a McLaren 765LT to complement their new West Hollywood home. It can take its space in the garage next to four other cars and a private washroom. The car is one of 765 models that McLaren will make. This year's allocation is already sold out.

"We are delighted to be working with Pendry Residences West Hollywood to help create the ultimate auto enthusiast's dream garage," says Tony Joseph, President, McLaren North America. "The 765LT is the most dynamically advanced and engaging McLaren LT model to date. With allocations for the US market already filled, this is a unique chance to experience this incredible supercar."

The buyer will also receive a design allowance to help them customize the garage as they see fit, which inches the options to create the ultimate McLaren garage designed by EYRC Architecture in collaboration with McLaren Automotive.

But that's not all. For the auto-enthusiast-in-training, McLaren is also including one of the newly-released kid's ride-on electric-powered McLaren Senna cars.

"We are excited to partner with McLaren Automotive North America as they share the our dedication to an unparalleled luxury experience. Through our collaboration with McLaren, Pendry Residences West Hollywood further elevates the residential living experience in Los Angeles," says Tina Necrason, Executive Vice President, Residential, Montage International. "Los Angeles residents are passionate about their cars and our Super Garage offers one discerning owner the opportunity to house their most prized vehicles in a space that is as luxurious as the Residence itself."

McLaren and LEGO team up on two new models

The automaker released two LEGO models for the holiday season.

McLaren cars are among the quickest and most sought after vehicles on the planet, but not everyone can swallow their six-figure price tags. There's good news, though. Those of us who aren't able to get in the driver's seat can pick up the new LEGO kits and build our own mini-McLarens at home. The automaker partnered with the toy brand to offer two models for the holidays.

McLaren is also offering auto-themed luggage from Tumi and a special line of clothing, but that's not why where here. We're most interested in the LEGO versions of the McLaren Elva and McLaren Senna GTR. However, with hundreds of pieces each, these aren't the simplest of toys. The Senna GTR LEGO replica comes in 830 pieces and features a V8 engine with moving pistons, opening dihedral doors, and a deep blue livery.

The McLaren Elva is *only* 263 pieces and replicates the cleverly designed, super-aerodynamic open-top car. McLaren says that the real car uses aero to shelter its occupants from wind. There is no windshield and no windows on the car, both of which are details that look great in the blocky LEGO format.

If you're itching to hand-assemble either McLaren LEGO model at home, the Senna costs $49.99 and the Elva costs $19.99.

Two new versions of the Jaguar F-Type are on the horizon. New versions of the model have been created to further the car's luxury proposition and both are powered by a roaring V8 engine. The new P450 variants replace the P300 and P380 models currently in the lineup. Jaguar is keeping the F-Type R around.

2022 Jaguar F-Type P450

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type P450 will be available as a coupe or convertible in P450 RWD or P450 R-DYNAMIC AWD grades. All varieties come with a 444-horsepower supercharged V8 under the hood that achieves 428 pound-feet of torque. An electronic active differential is standard. In all configurations, the car gets from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 177 mph.

In a nod to its suburban buyers, the F-Type has a Quiet Star mode that allows a more subtle roar out the back side of the car upon startup. Drivers who don't care about keeping quiet can switch the car in to Dynamic mode and let the rumble out.

Each F-Type P450 rides on 20-inch wheels, has larger brakes than traditional F-Type models, and has the switchable exhaust. Double J-Blade daytime running lights feature up front while new slender rear lights allow the body of the car to speak for itself.

Buyers who get the F-Type P450 R-Dynamic AWD get bespoke badging; a gloss black front splitter, side sills, valance, and venturi; auto-dimming, power- folding, heated door mirrors with memory; and 20-inch Style 6003, split-spoke, gloss Dark Grey with Contrast Diamond Turned Finish Wheels.

Monogram stitch patterns on the car's seats and interior accents in Windsor Leather and satin-finish Noble Chrome enhance the interior. Additionally, there are "Jaguar Est.1935" markings on the center console finisher, glovebox release button surround, and seatbelt guides. Six-way electric power seats are standard on F-Type P450 RWD, while F-Type P450 R-Dynamic AWD adds 12-way electric memory front seats, electrically adjustable steering column with memory, Delta Aluminum Center Console, and R-Dynamic branded metal treadplates as standard equipment.

A 12.3-inch driver information display is standard.

F-Type P450 is available in 11 standard exterior colors, and can be ordered in over a dozen custom SVO paint finishes. It starts at $69,900 for the P450 RWD Coupe and $79,900 for the R450 R-Dynamic AWD Coupe.

2022 Jaguar F-Type R

The F-Type R is the pinnacle of the Jaguar lineup with torque on-demand all-wheel drive, Jaguar Intelligent Driveline Dynamics control technology, a double wishbone front and rear suspension, and electric power-assisted steering.

It can get from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph thanks to its 575-horsepower supercharged V8 engine. All-wheel drive is standard.

This model starts at $103,200.
