Diamonds and Donuts Boca Raton feature on the ” Boopmobile ” Volcano Red Mclaren 650s

Summertime is finally here, which means we’re going to be seeing more of some timehonored
warm weather traditions: trips to the beach, pool parties, cookouts, and so many more.
When it comes to South Florida, however, these traditions never had to go away for the winter,
so traditional gatherings are already in full swing come by the time May rolls around. One of
these events is Diamonds and Donuts, hosted Diamonds by Raymond Lee in Boca Raton. A
monthly car show that showcases beautiful works of automotive art and powerful performance
models alike, Diamonds and Donuts is a perfect way to spend a summer weekend morning. It’s
also a place where one can find themselves alongside both social media sensations, both
humans and cars. One of those sensations you can find at Diamonds and Donuts might just be
the most exciting car you’d be able to see in all of South Florida: the McLaren 650S
“Boopmobile.”

McLaren is a British luxury car company, known for producing sports cars that flawlessly
blend prestige and practicality, as well as designing and producing all of their cars in-house. The
company actually grew out of Bruce McLaren Motor Racing, a company founded in 1963 by
Bruce McLaren, who was then most famous for winning the 1959 US Grand Prix at the age of
22, at that point the youngest person to have ever done so. This predecessor to McLaren was
remarkably successful, with the second car it ever produced, the M1B, dominating the
Canadian-American challenge cup with 43 victories.

In 1980, Bruce McLaren Motor Racing merged with the Project 4 Racing Team, and
McLaren Cars was born. The company produced its first automobile, the McLaren F1, in 1992.
Over the next two years, before the company became inactive in 1994, the car would sell 106
units. After a brief collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, the company went dormant for several
years before being revived as standalone auto manufacturer McLaren Automotive in 2010, a
spinoff of McLaren racing. Throughout its short history, the company has always believed that
“form follows function,” and has dedicated itself to producing high-performance masterpieces
that look the part.

Today, McLaren is a heavyweight in the automotive world, creating cars in three different
categories: sports cars, supercars, and ultimate cars. The sports car line focuses on blending
high performance and everyday usability. The most accessible lineup that the automaker
produces, it includes the 540C Coupé, 570S Coupé and 570 GT, all high-perofmance models
that can be used on a regular basis. All of these cars feature a carbon fiber chassis, which has
been a calling card of McLaren’s road cars since it first produced the McLaren F1.
The McLaren supercar series is the automaker’s largest, and it also includes some of
McLaren’s best known vehicles, such as the 650S Coupé and Spider, the 675 LT Coupé and
Spider, and the McLaren 720S. The goal for this collection of cars was to create a line that
allowed drivers to experience high performance on the road as well as the level of power
expected from professional racing cars. Because of this, many of the cars in this series, such as
the 675 LT, feature both a road and track mode, and include many subtle touches that are
specifically designed with track performance in mind, such as more aggressive aerodynamics,
improved torque, and construction from lighter materials. These supercars are McLaren’s most
popular, as they offer drivers the option to experience track-level performance in road-legal
form.

McLaren’s ultimate cars represent their most powerful creations, cars that showcase
dynamic performance and beautiful design, and are often created specifically with the racing
track in mind. It includes only the P1 and the Senna, though a track-only version of the P1, the
P1 GTR, was also created in 2005 to celebrate the 1995 McLaren victory in Le Mans twenty
years earlier. These cars draw their inspiration directly from powerful Formula One racing
vehicles, and include features such as a bespoke braking system, hydro-penumatic suspension,
and a RaceActive Chassis Control that allows drivers to lower the car fifty millimeters closer to
the ground when in race mode. These cars also features the potential to reach higher levels of
performance than their supercar relatives, usually able to achieve speeds of over 210 miles per
hour. They represent the ultimate evolution of automotive technology, delivering the kind of
performance expected by professional drivers the world over.

Recently, McLaren also recently began reproducing some of their older makes and
models, calling this the creation of their “Legacy” series. This legacy series includes cars from
before the founding of McLaren as a company, such as the M6GT, a project taken on by Bruce
McLaren to create a powerful endurance racing vehicle in the late 1960s. Other cars in this line
include the McLaren F1, once described as “the finest sports car the world has ever seen,” and
the McLaren 12C, the first car wholly produced by McLaren since the success of the F1. This
line offers drivers a glimpse into the rich history of high-performance automobiles while also
delivering exhilaratingly powerful performance in their own right.
The car we’re interested in today is one of the automaker’s supercars, and perhaps its
most famous. The McLaren 650s was first launched at the 2014 Geneva auto show to wild
anticipation, and can today be found in both Coupé and Spider forms. Both of those forms are
powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo M838T V8 engine, which is capable of putting out almost 650
horsepower and 500 foot-pounds of torque, as well as running at over 8,000 rotations per
minute, a truly stunning level of performance. It has reached a top speed of 207 miles per hour,
and also comes with a wealth of features inspired by Formula 1, such as a carbon fibre
MonoCell chassis, optimized powertrain, braking and suspension systems, mid-engine
architecture, carbon ceramic brake discs, and active aerodynamics. No matter which of the car’s
three driving modes you’re in – normal, sport, or track – the 650S can make you feel like a
professional. Today, the model is one of McLaren’s most well-known, and offers drivers a taste
of what track-level performance looks like in a form they can take on the road as well.
Just as McLaren is a legend of the automotive worlds, and the 650s is a legend among
sports cars, the boopmobile is a legend of South Florida. The car is a McLaren 650S painted
volcano red, a color that can’t help but stand out even in the most crowded South Florida
streets. Taking its name from the iconic cartoon character Betty Boop, a jazz age flapper who
dressed in stunning crimson and was well known for her flirtatious attitude, the boopmobile
blends high-powered performance and stunning design.

The car is a 650S Spider, the convertible variant of the 650S, and as with all 650S
models it comes with a low, long body aerodynamically engineered for high performance, and a
pair of butterfly doors that open into a black leather interior inspired by the cockpits of Formula
One racing vehicles. Featuring a tactile, small diameter steering wheel with no buttons to
distract from the exhilarating feeling of being in control of the boopmobile’s engine and a sevenspeed,
dual clutch gearbox that can be controlled by paddles behind the wheel, the view from
the driver’s seat of the boopmobile is just as stunning as the view from outside it. The low-slung,
uncluttered dashboard and panoramic windshield also give the driver of the boopmobile a
beautiful view of the astonished admirers looking into the car.
The boopmobile doesn’t just look the part, either. Powered by its rear-mounted twinturbo
V8 engine, the car can accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in under three
seconds, and from zero to 100 miles per hour in under six. The car’s other statistics are just as
impressive: it can complete one lap of a quarter-mile track in just over ten seconds, and has
been clocked traveling a kilometer in just under twenty. And perhaps just as importantly for a
South Florida car, the boopmobile is also a reasonably efficient machine, boasting a fuel
economy of above twenty-four miles per gallon, which is slightly above average, especially for a
car with such powerful performance.
The booopmobile also has a host of other features that make it a truly remarkable piece
of engineering to drive, and makes it feel like a Formula One machine for anyone lucky enough
to get the chance. The rear diffuser produces more downforce as the car’s speed increases,
meaning that it handles even better at high-performance speeds than it does at lowperformance
ones. Side vents help the car excel when performing at its highest level as well,
forcing air into the cooling radiator to make sure that heat is kept to a minimum and efficiency is
maximized.

In the rear of the car, the Airbrake offers both professional stopping power and can be
deployed as rear wing, adding another source of downforce when in motion. Finally, the Brake
Steer feature allows the driver of the boopmobile to subtly use to brakes when going around a in
order to manage traction and corner at speed, a feature so powerful for that it was actually
banned from cars on the track. With all these features packed on to the sleek chassis of the
McLaren 650s in vibrant red, the boopmobile is the definition of a head-turner that can do some
heavy lifting of her own.
Finally, the boopmobile has one more claim to fame: it’s the only supercar on the South
Florida streets owned and driven by a woman. The owner, who calls herself Betty Boop online
and can be found at the Instagram handle @Boop14, appears often in public with the car, and is
proud of her association with the famous vehicle. An auto enthusiast herself, she is both
knowledgeable and passionate about the car she drives, and often appears with it and posts
about it on social media. This has undoubtedly helped turn the car into an online sensation, and
a quick search of Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook will quickly reveal that the car has a bevy of
dedicated followers, all eagerly following its appearances and hoping for a glimpse of it on the
streets of South Florida, and all eagerly sharing their own experiences with or appreciation of
the supercar.
The car has also made its owner something of a sensation on Instagram, and both her
car and herself are minor celebrities in the area. Furthermore, the car is something of a hot
marketing commodity, and is often quite sought-after for a variety of promotional opportunities. It
once famously bore Santa’s face on its hood to help spread the word about Toys for Tots, and
has been graced with a few other stunning decals in its years on the South Florida Streets.
Even better, we can tell you exactly where you’ll be able to find the boopmobile soon!
Now that the winter is receding and the calendar is creeping toward summer, the boopmobile
will be making its customary appearances at the Diamonds and Donuts car show, hosted by
Diamonds by Raymond Lee. The boopmobile appears at the Diamonds and Donuts show
without fail, which makes the gather one of the best places to feast your eyes on one of South
Florida’s automotive legends. The next Diamonds and Donuts car show will be held on Sunday,
June 24th at 9 AM at Diamonds by Raymond Lee in Boca Raton. Come and experience a
morning of eating good food, having fun times, and enjoying the sight of dozens of highperformance
cars. And, of course, rub shoulders with South Florida’s most famous womandriven
supercar.
