Ferrari 250 GTO is reborn in the modern world as the 612 GTO III

If the Ferrari 250 GTO has lived on to this, this is how it might have looked like, thanks to renderings by Ukrainian computer graphic artists Sergiy Dvornytskyy, as posted in the Behance Web site.

Definitely, there are cars or nameplates that managed to survive decades of competition by continuously evolving itself as technologies and car-making techniques make their advances. For instance, the Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Corvette and the Fiat 500 – all still exist bearing modern technologies and design. However, these vehicles are remarkably identifiable with their predecessors, thanks to certain design cues that were able to pass the test of time.

Here comes the Ferrari 250 GTO. Unlike all the nameplates mentioned, the Ferrari failed to live to this day. In fact, the last example of the Ferrari 250 GTO was built in 1964 or after two years since its production started (1962). This means that its design and technologies never got the chance to undergo dramatic revolutions or evolutions. Ferrari only built 39 examples of the 250 GTOs between 1962 and 1964. These 39 examples include 33 cars with Series I (1962 to 1963) bodywork; three units with Series II (1964) bodywork similar to that of the Ferrari 250 LM; and three "330 GTO" versions powered by a larger engine.

First Lamborghini Centenario has landed on U.S. shores

The Italian sports car Lamborghini revealed the first ever magnificent Centenario around the year 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show. And even though the Lamborghini Aventador SV and Centenario have a brooding similarity when it comes to performance, the Centenario was pretty much still a hit to loyal Lamborghini fans and car enthusiasts worldwide. Now a Lamborghini Centenario has arrived in the U.S., particularly at Newport Beach located in Costa Mesa, California. While it is the first ever Centenario to step on American land, it won’t be the last.

Largely based on the Lamborghini Aventador SV, the dashing Centenario utilizes the same 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 that will produce around 759hP (565 kW) and pure 508 lb-ft (688 Newton Meters) of torque, allowing the sports car to reach around 60 miles per hour (96 km per hours) needing only 2.8 seconds to do the job. Nevertheless, the top speed of the Centenario is limited to around 217 mph (349 kmh). The said horsepower is only 20hp more powerful than its predecessor, but the Centenario is considered a tad lighter due to its carbon fiber body. The Centenario weighs at an estimated 3,350 lbs (1,519 kg).

The Italian automaker claimed that performance-wise, the Centenario is more dominant compared to SV but not on a large scale. Only 40 units of the Lamborghini Centenario worth around $1.9 million each will be manufactured and sold globally. Specifically, there will be 20 coupes and 20 convertibles produced to celebrate the 100th birthday of founder Ferrucio Lamborghini, who was born on April 28, 1916. The swanky sports car that was delivered in the US flaunted its awesome bare carbon fiber exterior paired with blue accents to contrast its dark paint.

Seven Car Lounge has released its very own bespoke version of the McLaren 675LT. Located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this dealership is known for its exotic and rare models. For this version, the company used a royal blue shade on the exterior of this supercar and then put in a yellow racing stripe having white borders as contrast.

Other features of this customized version include the use of carbon fiber on the bumper in the front, the front splitter, and the wing mirrors. Carbon fiber also dominates the rear section. On the inside, the leather comfort seats are pretty clear. There are also various carbon accents as well as blue stitching. Additionally, the paddle shifter comes in black.

The blue, yellow, and white theme brings to mind the models owned by celebrated Instagrammer Azzurrodino. In particular, Azzurrodino has Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, Ferrari F40, and a LaFerrari, all having the same theme.

It looks so divine in colour white and it doesn’t mind hitting the tracks even if it gets dirty. Okay, so all Lamborghinis are hot but this one’s hotter than anything you’ve likely ever seen. The one-off Lamborghini Diablo GTR #022 also happens to be among company's SuperTrophy Series. SuperTrophy is much like today’s Super Trofeo range which is basically the lighter version of the ultra-cool road going supercars by Lamborghini. The rest of the features have been specified for racing; that’s why this Diablo GTR came with a race-bred V12 engine and is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission from the very beginning.

Surprisingly, the seller posted the vehicle at the Formula Automobile website without naming the price. As a brand new Diablo GTR would cost around $310,000, this used one still won’t come cheap.

For sale is the beast at number 22, which packs an incredibly powerful 590hp (440kW) with a torque of 472lb-ft (640Nm). With only thirty examples, it isn't anymore surprising why this Lamborghini counts as among the rarest breed of bulls from Sant'Agata.

Remember that Lamborghini Huracan that was being sold for five dollars? Yup, the one that caught a lot of people’s attention. First, because it was so affordable; and second, because it was burned down to ashes and was still up for grabs.

Well, now we have another one with a similar case. But this time, it costs much more. But still affordable, just imagine buying a brand new entry-level Toyota, but you’ll get a Lamborghini Murcielago instead. But you’re probably thinking now that there’s a catch to this price drop.

What’s the first thing that comes into mind when you see an eBay seller whose username is “lamborghinidismantler”? Ok, you’re probably thinking he’s selling bits and pieces, or Lambo car parts. Well, he is selling parts that originate from Sant’Agata Bolognese, but besides that, he is also selling an original frame of a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe. But if you go and check out the listing, it doesn’t look like it is in its best condition. Yup, the item looks like it has been torched down, though it definitely is in a better condition compared to the $5 Huracan. At least this one has still got its shape.

Sesto Elemento isn’t your ordinary Lamborghini supercar. After all, the Sesto Elemento is considered as one of the most expensive Lamborghini ever sold. Likewise, it is a very exclusive model, with only 20 track-focused examples were built, all of which were sold out. Thus, when such a car appears on the used-vehicles market, expect wealthy collectors to line up just to get a Sesto Elemento.

Fortunately, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is being sold in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. According to Knight International, this Lamborghini is the only delivery mileage Sesto Elemento currently available. The supercar’s odometer shows that this Sesto Elemento has only been driven for around 198 miles – which are all delivery mileage. This Sesto Elemento has only changed hands two times, and neither of its two owners – as claimed by the dealer – have taken it for a drive. This means that the 198 miles on its odometer is practically the distance that this Sesto Elemento has traveled to be delivered to its new owner. What a waste if the owners of this Sesto Elemento have never experienced how powerful this supercar is.

This left-hand drive Lamborghini Sesto Elemento on the topic was built in 2011. It features a grey exterior and a red interior. Knight International will provide this supercar’s VIN, original invoice and documents under pre-sale agreement. For those who wanted to get a closer look at this Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, they could do so as it is now available for inspection.

It’s pretty neat if you possess something of an extraordinary breed like, say, the Pagani Huayra. There are after all just a total of 100 units ever been built by the exotic car manufacturer. As with every new Pagani supercar, each client can collaborate with the team to help create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece -- where science meets art. Out of the 100 examples however, there are actually two right-hand-drive Huayra’s that came out as part of their deal with Mercedes-AMG— the company that supplied its engine.

For those who have been wondering what happened to the two RHD Huayras, well, a UK dealer has recently listed the exclusive supercar for the price of $2,360,410 (that’s equivalent to £1,849,990 in the UK). On the listing, the dealer said the car comes in the same factory color (Dubai Red) with exposed carbon fiber and glossy top coat protective film. The set of wheels on the other hand is specified to come in silver finish.

Elsewhere, the Dubai Red Pagani Huayra is fitted with black leather for most of its interior finishing. For contrast, the dark surface feature aluminum trims, naked carbon fiber accessories and red stitching to match the black leather upholstery.

Xabier Albizu, a Spanish product and transportation artist, recently did a rendering of the Experimental Tesla Model EXP supercar. The third party design work looks quite sexy and has been the talk of the town recently. Albizu initially posted the first image of his rendering on March 6 on his Behance account.

As a third party designer, Albizu had all the time to make these renderings. His works show that the Tesla Model EXP is a high performance supercar with four electric motors (and independent torque vectoring), each one powering its own wheel, thus making it a four-wheel drive . But is controllable depending on the driver’s needs in that power delivery can be adjusted independently -for crazy handling and acceleration.

The high performance Tesla rendering has smart aerodynamics. With a flat bottom and the huge diffuser, there is an increase in downforce without sacrificing the drag. The rear end of the vehicle has an open design that extracts hot air from different components, and prevents it from overheating. But this design isn’t only functional. He designed this to give it a more aggressive and extreme look.

Getting to own a Pagani, as we already know, is not a commonplace thing. However, the Pagani Huayra Benny Caiola (BC), by far, is the finest model in its history. It’s partly because it’s the first to ever come out with a series of advanced technologies that no other Pagani owners have seen before. In fact, the new features on the Huayra BC have yet to become available in Pagani’s future supercar lineups.

Under the hood, the Huayra BC comes with a 750hp and 737lb-ft of torque twin-turbo V12 engine, which was exclusively made for the Italian marque courtesy of Mercedes-AMG. Based on the specs, this V12 engine is paired to a 7-speed AMT (or Automated Manual Transmission). According to Pagani, the latest electronic active differential along with the new gearbox on the Benny Caiola is almost 40% lighter than the current Huayra’s dual clutch transmission.

With the Geneva Motor Show happening at the moment, there are other exciting things that’s been going on Instagram. Apparently, an outlandish green and orange Pagani Huayra BC has lately been delivered to its wealthy owner.

What’s the lowest price you can get a Lamborghini for? Whatever your guess is, we’re sure that it won’t be anywhere near $5. So then, that makes you ask – What’s the catch? It’s quite a serious one.

Owning a supercar not only means a one-time big time paycheck, you’ve got more responsibilities than that. And to be more specific, that means having to spend a lot more money on maintenance and repairs.

This one right here is a total outlier. And yes, of course there is a good reason as to why it is only $5. But before I reveal to you the reason, any takers? Sorry, but nope, it’s not a discount coupon or anything. This Lamborghini Huracan is not functioning anymore, and I doubt that even the repair shop can help you out with this - because it’s already in ashes. And I mean that this car has been burned to a crisp. In fact, the Huracan is so damaged that you can’t even recognize it anymore. But who knows, someone’s trash may be a treasure to another person, or even an art piece.

It’s a pretty common sight for Ferrari cars to be painted in many different colours, apart from classic red. And you might think you have seen it all - from red, to blue, to yellow, white, black, and to silver. Well, the Ferrari LaFerrari hasn’t gone through the entire whole colour wheel just yet. In fact, when a matte bronze LaFerrari coupe made its way through the roads of Monaco, many jaws dropped.

LaFerrari, which literally means “The Ferrari”, is a 2-door hybrid sports car that was built by Ferrari. The 2013 model is only limited to 499 units, while there are only 200 units of the 2016 LaFerrari Aperta. This car is actually dubbed “the most valuable 21st century automobile” because on December 3, 2016 – a limited edition model was sold at an auction for $7 million. That is equivalent to £5,743,500.

Several images have surfaced on social media showing a colour on a LaFerrari that we have never seen before -- bronze paint with a matte finish, dubbed Bronze Opaco. According to GTspirit, this specific shade was specially curated by Ferrari’s Tailor Made department for the LaFerrari.

Owning a supercar in the past meant you’ll have to compromise. But there’s no need for that anymore - thanks to the Ford Performance engineers. The company ensures that you get an enjoyable and comfortable ride regardless of the condition, may it be on the highway, the city, or even on rainy days.

The new Ford GT, the carbon fiber supercar with a capacity of 647 horsepower now has five drive modes namely: 1) Normal - for everyday driving, 2) Wet - for driving on wet roads, 3) Sport - for out-of-town adventures, 4) Track - for racing, and 5) V-Max - for maximum straight-line speed.

Now let us get into more detail with each of the modes. The normal mode basically calibrates throttle and transmission for standard driving. With a ground clearance of 120mm - this mode is perfect for city driving. In the wet mode, the height and other settings remain the same except for the throttle control calibration, which enables greater stability as it is adjusted to prevent the induction from slipping.

Lamborghini has disclosed that it is looking into the possibility of releasing electric vehicles. With the Volkswagen Group revealing that it will be releasing electric vehicles within several years, there was the expectation that other automakers would follow suit. However, then Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann did not believe that the brand should go the way of electric vehicles and preferred to continue creating models that were gas-powered. All that could change though.

Appointed in March 2016, CEO Stefano Domenicali told Automotive News that he is interested in the brand’s plan to produce electric supercars. This however should not come as a surprise given that Lamborghini is in fact under the Volkswagen Group through the Audi division. With the parent company pushing for the creation of a range of hybrid vehicles and pure electric ones, it is possible that this would later trickle down to the Italian automaker that would then make a low-slung supercar.

In the same interview, CEO Domenicali said that while Lamborghini is indeed looking into electrification, customers should not expect anything in the short run. It is important, he added, to be realistic so if an electric Lamborghini model does get launched, it is likely going to happen some years from now.

Lamborghini has begun handing over the Centenarios to their rightful owners in different parts of the world. Last month, the first out of the forty Aventador-based Centenario has been delivered to an affluent car collector all the way to the UAE. There is also the menacing matte black Lamborghini Centenario that was being transported in Germany a few days ago. And very recently, a matte white Centenario has made its way to Paris!

The white Lamborghini in the video is believed to belong to a certain Qatari Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani. By far, the matte white finish is the most extraordinary paint scheme of all that has been delivered.

While the Centenario model that was put by Lamborghini at the show stands last year come in carbon fiber finish with yellow accents, this one generally comes in matte white body paint. But in many ways, it happens to express a different character since it also comes with contrasting color scheme.

To hell and back. Sometime in July 2016, a drunk driver in Paris ran into a beautiful Pagani Huayra Pearl and caused a total wreck. This was one of the worst tragedies that have ever occurred in the world of supercars. There was a brief moment of odd silence. And teardrops. But the aftermath of this event brings about new a perspective, mainly from the man behind the wheel, the drunk driver and the restoration engineers.

Barely a year after the incident Paris, Horacio Pagani, founder and CEO of Pagani Automobili was able to work his magic on the wrecked car and brought it back to life. With the help of his people, the Pagani Huayra Pearl is not only back to its original form but it has also received some upgrades. Yes, it reincarnated into an even more beautiful Huayra Pearl with Benny Caiola elements to boot. The restored supercar now bears certain characteristics from the latest Huayra BC, the Zonda R and the Zonda S all at the same time. Indeed, Pagani has combined art, science and technology with its form and function.

To highlight this, Pagani released a video clip of the fully resurrected Huayra Pearl--- all bright and sparkly. Do take note that this 2-minute clip doesn’t depict the unspoken story of what the almost-dead Huayra Pearl had gone through in the last several months. Of course, the hours spent in putting it back in shape must have been grueling.

It’s basically an Italian job. At last, Chinese automaker Techrules comes out with its first production model. Gracing the 2017 Geneva Motor Show is none other than the company’s turbine-electric Ren supercar.

Also in Geneva last year, Techrules had on display the not-so-impressive AT96 supercar --but that would soon be forgotten. We have to say, the Beijing-based supercar-maker has perfected their craft this time around--- Why? Ren’s extraordinary fighter jet design is penned by the automotive industry’s renowned father and son team--- Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro of Italy.

Technically, Ren’s most powerful and advanced hybrid powertrain packs an impressive 1,287hp (967kW) and 1,725 lb-ft (2,340Nm) of torque. The road-going supercar’s different hybrid powertrain configuration comes in either 2, 4 or 6 electric motors. However, Techrules is also offering customers a choice between one or two micro-turbines to generate its 25 kilowatt hour battery pack. The batteries are likewise available in 32kWh, 25kWh and 14 kilowatt-hour strengths.

The super version of the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) 003 has finally arrived. This carbon fiber version is dubbed as the SCG 003S and comes in a white finish with carbon fiber accents. For those familiar with this series, the 003S follows the 003C. So what’s the difference? For one, the C stands for competizione, which clearly means competition or racing. Meanwhile, the S refers to stradale or road-going. Simply put, the 003S is designed to be a road-going model.

That’s not all as under its hood is the bi-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that is capable of delivering 800 hp (596 kW) with peak torque measured at 627 lb.-ft. (850 Nm). This is then channeled to the road using the race-spec7-speed sequential gearbox. Moreover, its Dunlop tires measure 265/35R-20s on the front while the rear is sized 325/30-21.

Despite designing this model to be a road-going vehicle, SCG revealed that aerodynamics has been optimized. As such, when running at 155 mph (249 km/h), the 003S can create downforce as large as 1,550 lbs. (703 kg). In addition, when cornering, it can deliver at least 2.5 lateral Gs.

The Artega Scalo marked the impressive rise from ashes of the once defunct German carmaker Artega Automobil when it was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Employing a pure electric drive unit, the Artega Scalo is regarded as the direct successor for the carmaker’s awe-inspiring conventionally powered Artega GT sports car.

A year and a half after the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the low-volume German sports car maker is raising the tempo substantially by unveiling a new version of the Scalo that is much lighter and incredibly more powerful. Artega is proud to unveil the new Artega Scalo Superelletra – a superlight electric GT car filled with performance-enhancing steroids.

As to how this electric supercar got its name, the term “Scalo” refers to a special Westphalian stallion that was awarded as the 2010 Galloper of the Year. Interestingly, Scalo was trained near the carmaker’s headquarters. “Superelletra,” meanwhile, is a wordplay on the italian terms “Superleggera” (means “super light”) and “elettrica” (means “electric”).
