The replacement of the McLaren F1 is near, and from everything we’re hearing, it won’t disappoint. The McLaren P1 is being called a “design study,” but what you see here is supposedly going to be pretty close to what you can expect going on sale sometime within the next 12 months. We don’t have any official specs, other than McLaren’s official statement, promising to be ”the best driver’s car in the world on road and track.” But we do, of course, have rumors… claiming the P1 will feature a 3.8-liter V8 producing 803 horsepower matched to a 160 horsepower KERS system.
These days, every car company loves to talk about how their models get great gas mileage while still maintaining solid performance. Unfortunately that’s rarely the case. Porsche isn’t just any car company though, and they mean business… for a price of course. It looks like the first prototypes of the Porsche 918 Spyder are finally ready to go, and they don’t disappoint. Take a 570 horsepower 4.0-liter V8 engine to start, tack on two (front and real axle mounted) electric motors for an additional 218 horsepower and AWD handling, and you get 60MPH in a blazing 3.1 seconds. The gas-electric combo is good for Read More
The bad news is that Aston Martin will be discontinuing the DBS soon. The good news: they’re phasing it out with one final bang. The Aston Martin DBS Ultimate is a limited, special edition of which only 100 will be produced. It’ll carry over the same 510hp V12 from the standard model, but includes a host of upgrades elsewhere. Additions include carbonfibre wing mirrors, rear diffuser and taillight inserts, black numberplate surround, smoked taillights, Zircotec-coated exhaust pipes, dark front grille, black diamond-turned alloy wheels, the option of red, yellow or black brake calipers, diamond-quilt stitching (red or silver), alcantara headliner, headrest embroidery, and red leather-trimmed Read More
Unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long Edition is anything but typical. Aside from being one of the most powerful supercars in the world, the Wei Long Edition – in collaboration with porcelain maker, Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur – features white porcelain dragon sculptures, both inside and out. It also boasts embroidered headrests and handcrafted pure silk floor mats. But perhaps what the drooling spectators will notice first is the pearl white paint job, carmine red interior and carmine red brake calipers teasing them from behind 20-inch alloy wheels. Unfortunately, if the $2 million price tag doesn’t exclude you from ever owning the Read More
Ferrari anyone? How about the fastest Ferrari ever built? Yes please! The all new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta comes loaded with a v12 pushing out 740 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque using an F1 dual-clutch transmission. 0-60 in 3 seconds, 0-100 in 8.4 seconds, and a top speed of over 210 mph. The car is being built to compete with the Lamborghini LP700-4 Aventador, so don’t expect any shortcuts here. Oh and, it looks pretty nice f…ing awesome too.
You know what I’d do as a millionaire during times of economic trouble? Blow $2 million on one of the baddest supercars in the world. Which is probably why I’m not a millionaire. All kidding aside, the Aston Martin One-77 is no joke. The hand-formed aluminum body displays ribbed sides, monstrous headlights and aggressive ducts, all of which were inspired by the race cars of the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters. Under the hood you’ll find a 7.3-liter V12 engine capable of delivering 750 horsepower and 750 lb-ft of torque. Reports claim that it smashes 0-60 in just over 3 seconds, and has a top speed of Read More
In 2010 Jaguar introduced the C-X75 concept car that made mouths water. Well it looks like 250 of these bad boys will actually be produced in the next 2-3 years. The majority of these units will come with a hybrid turbo four engine, but now Jaguar’s saying a limited quantity will include micro-turbines as envisioned in the original concept car. The turbines, smaller than what you’d expect to find on a jet, will drive the rear wheels and produce 95 horsepower each (in addition to the electric power). The result? Outstanding fuel economy and emissions. Oh, and 0-60 in three seconds.
Has there ever been a more aptly named vehicle than the Roadyacht? The name suggests fast, sleek, high-end luxury with all the fixin’s, and that’s exactly what you get. On wheels. It’s been a while since the world has seen a four-door convertible, but here one is from Dutch automaker Savage Rivale. And they haven’t skimped on the looks or the specs. Not only is it smooth enough to slip through like the air’s not even there, it packs the same 600 horsepower, 7.0-liter V8 as the Corvette Z06. And yes, there are four doors. Four wicked doors that you Read More
