Road-legal Lotus Exige Cup 380 promises to amaze you on track

The British automaker Lotus is noted for releasing low production, limited editions of its sports car lineage. Now the Hethel-based automobile manufacturer is back at it again with its latest special edition vehicle christened the "Exige Cup 380"- proclaimed to be the most track-focused sports car that is now legal to roam the streets.

Lotus has found a solution to make an Exige a slicker sports car. The newest Exige version utilizes the same mechanical features of its predecessor, the Exige Sport 380, but it boasts one factor that puts it a notch above its big brother- you can attach a plate number on it. Lotus specifically made a new sports car that consumers can take to the track, set personal speed records there, and then drive home. You won’t be needing a loyal vehicle hauler; this sports car can easily become your ultimate weekend buddy.

Akin to the Race 380 and Sports 380 units, power is delivered via the 3.5 L supercharged V6 that specifically yields an impressive 375 hP (280 kW) and 302 lb-ft of torque (419 Newton-meters), driving the rear wheels via a 6 speed manual transaxle that is impelled by an aesthetically detailed exposed shifter mechanism. The new Cup 380 can accelerate to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometer per hour) in only 3.4 seconds - a tenth of a second faster than the Sport 380, but 2 tenths slower compared to the Race 380.

Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows pays homage to British Royal Airforce

Aston Martin could make a good aircraft designer if not for the dedication it has for building its automobiles. Their aviation-themed cars are quite remarkable – stunning limited editions with a characteristic that adds to its exotic appeal. The Vantage S Blades Edition, sporting a livery design inspired by the tri-colored planes of The Blades aerobatic team, and the V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 edition, with its Supermarine Spitfire fighter plane-inspired design, have proven that cars can be “fly”.

This time, Aston Martin is adding yet another limited-edition aviation-themed car in its artillery – the Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows. This Vanquish S based coupe is named after the Red Arrows, the British Royal Airforce’s own aerobatic unit, and is definitely a sight to behold.

The Vanquish S Red Arrows is dressed in “Eclat Red”, taking inspiration from the Hawk trainer aircraft used by the said aerobatic unit. A contrast to its predominantly red body is its exposed carbon fiber roof that features a “charge” detail similar to that of the fast jet’s canopy design. Limited to only 10 units, each of the Vanquish S Red Arrows is also bestowed with a unique Union Jack enamel wing badge to further emphasize its exclusivity.

Lotus creates Evora Sport 410 GP Edition for North American customers

From 1972 to 1986, Team Lotus’ Formula One cars were wrapped in its now famous black and gold livery. Now, Lotus is honoring this iconic livery and the race cars that wore it by making it available with the latest version of its United States-bound sports car.

Dubbed as the Lotus Evora Sport 410 GP Edition, this exclusive version of the Lotus Evora Sport 410 celebrates the successful return of Lotus to North America. It is basically the Lotus Evora Sport 410 featured in the new GP Edition color scheme. This famous black and gold color scheme was worn by Lotus F1 cars that grabbed five Drivers’ and Constructors’ championships and 35 Grand Prix. Legendary drivers who had piloted these black-and-gold Lotus F1 cars included Ayrton Senna, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mario Andretti, Nigel Mansell and Ronnie Peterson.

Now only five customers will have a chance to own the exclusive run of five Evora Sport 410 GP Edition models. Of course, the base Evora Sport 410 is also an exclusive model by itself, with only 150 examples to be built every year. The new Evora Sport 410 GP Edition was developed by Lotus Exclusive, a program that allows customers to suit the character of their Lotus cars with a wide array of options.

Genesis G90 Special Edition is likely inspired by a Bentley

Genesis Motors, the luxury vehicle division of South Korean manufacturer Hyundai Motor Company, takes a step further from their usual designs as they unveiled the G90 Special Edition - a vehicle that represents a marriage of luxury and technology. Hyundai also announced new developments at the latest Seoul Motor Show this week.

Dressed in a two-tone paint finish, the G90 Special Edition showcased three different versions. The first one came in a metallic brown and matte grey combo, the other one was a matte grey and silver, and last but not the least, a metallic blue and solid white finish - all of these colour combinations were “inspired by a finely-tailored gentleman’s pin-stripe suit” according to the company.

We strongly feel like the South Korean automaker is shying away from conservative designs and instead is leaning towards something different this time. The Special Edition vehicle features an upgraded interior with Nubuck leather trim, accent stitching, upgraded carpeting, and more. While each of them has a hand-painted coach line running all around the sides of the vehicle’s exterior. At first glance, you would think it is a Bentley. You’ll just be surprised that it is a Genesis when you have a closer look. Perhaps it’s because the former design director of Bentley, Luc Donckerwolke, has been leading the design brand since early last year.

The newest member of the GT-R family is here! Nissan will be premiering the GT-R Track Edition at the 2017 New York Auto Show that is scheduled to take place next month. The Track Edition is positioned between the base Touring version and the range topper Nismo.

For the Track Edition, Nissan is asking for $18,000 more than its entry level model which is currently priced at $109,990 MSRP. But they didn’t give it that rate just because they want to. Customers will be delighted because the third member of the GT-R family will be acquiring several features of the Nismo. Some of which are the 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, Nismo rear fenders, and a suspension setup like that of the range topper.

The 2017 model will be having the same engine specifications as the Touring model - a biturbo 3.8 liter V6. These provide 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque, with a six-speed dual clutch gearbox.

Who would not want a matching sports car and a super bike? Oh, and a matching watch to complete the package! In celebration of BMW’s partnership with Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, the French and Bavarian companies put together a special deal dubbed the M4 Competition Package. It is set to be offered this spring and costs a whopping €180,000 (or around $190,100). Being stylish doesn’t come cheap nowadays.

So the Competition Package comes with a special edition M4 Magny-Cours Edition. Its exterior is painted all white, accented with its signature red, blue, and black (typical M colour) stripes that run on the sides of the car. It comes with a rear wing and front lip made of carbon fiber, and the best part – a set of 20 inch multi-spoke alloy wheels (this is probably my favourite feature). Sounds very much like another outstanding lightweight car fitted with plenty of goodies. There’s everything to like about this offering.

Just like the standard BMW M4, it is provided with a 3.0 liter inline-six turbocharged engine under its hood, producing 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) to the rear wheels. In just four seconds, it can speed up to 62 miles per hour from a standstill (0-100 kilometers per hour). But that’s only for the variant that comes equipped with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which is optional.

The Sprint makes a comeback and is more featherweight than ever. Well, that’s because the Norfolk engineers apparently have thought of a better idea. Due to its relentless desire to lose more weight, the new Lotus Elise Sprint had taken massive amounts of carbon fiber diet.

Shedding at least ninety pounds (or equivalent to 41 kilograms), the Sprint turned out to be the most impressive of the three Elise line-up---- with a total dry weight of only 1,759 pounds. That’s 798 kilograms to be exact. Very light indeed.

To achieve this 41kg weight loss, the new Elise Sprint has undergone quite a serious makeover. Case in point; the sports car now comes with a new lithium ion battery that weighs 9kg lighter. Also, there is the new set of lightweight forged alloy wheels weighing 5kg less. To save as much as 6kg at once, the rear screen is made with polycarbonate material while the door panels, hood, roll hoop cover and seats are all made with carbon fiber.

As Land Rover unfurled its new 2018 Range Rover Velar to the global public at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, a new special chronograph from Zenith is being displayed beside this newest member of the Range Rover family, also with the name Velar. It is not surprising though, since this special watch celebrates the launch of the new Range Rover Velar.

It is a small watch with a lengthy moniker -- “Zenith Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition.” If you are planning to the purchase a new 2018 Range Rover Velar (which comes with a starting price of $50,895), then this special watch would be the perfect complement ($8,700). Actually, it is the first time that Land Rover and Zenith had collaborated. It can be remembered that Zenith also created a special chronograph to celebrate the launch of the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic in September 2016.

Velar is not an entirely a new moniker for Land Rover. In 1969, Rover started a project that would lead to the creation of the Range Rover in 1970. Around 26 pre-production Range Rover prototypes were created but were needed to be concealed from others by the carmaker’s development engineers. To conceal its existence, these engineers referred to the prototypes as Velar, as derived from the Latin term ‘velare’ that means to veil or to cover.

This orange is actually the exclusive color for the 860. However, you can also have it in Halo White. White as we know is a terrific choice especially for those who want to keep it more elegant.

What does Chevy’s all–new Redline Series have to say about this? Nissan always takes the lead in designing trim packages for self-expression. As soon as Nissan first came out with the Maxima Midnight Edition last 2016, it quickly gained a positive feedback from its customers. To keep up with the increasing demand for more varieties, Nissan introduces the Midnight Edition package for its Sentra, Rogue, Pathfinder, Murano, and Altima models.

According to Nissan’s Eric Ledieu, about eighty-five percent of the entire SR sales has been accounted for the Maxima SR after it initially introduced the black-on-black exterior trim package. Ledieu added that although the positive audience reaction was quite unexpected at that time, they made it immediately available on the Maxima SR. After all, increasingly more people want to have that “sporty look” with dark accents and dark wheels.

The latest “Midnight Edition” basically consists of black trim accessories but it now has broader and more numerous choices for exterior body paints. Depending on the model, there will be several red variations available including Red Alert, Cayenne and Coulis. The black variants will come in Gun Metallic, Magnetic Black and Super Black. Other than red and black, customers can also avail the Midnight Edition with a Pearl White exterior paint finish.
