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.Read the entire article Pagani Huayra BC in green carbon and bits of orange is impressive
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.Read the entire article A Lamborghini Huracan is being sold at auction for $5 only
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.Read the entire article Matte bronze Ferrari LaFerrari coupe gets plenty of attention in Monaco
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.Read the entire article Ford GT Performance introduces five drive modes for every road condition imaginable
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.Read the entire article Lamborghini CEO says electric supercars may be possible
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.Read the entire article Spotted: Matte white Lamborghini Centenario arrives in Paris
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.Read the entire article Pagani releases video clip of fully restored Huayra Pearl
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.Read the entire article Techrules returns to Geneva with Ren, the 1,287 hp turbine hypercar
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.Read the entire article 2017 Geneva Motor Show: SCG 003S is a road-going model that offers 800 hp
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”).Read the entire article Artega unveils new 1,020-hp Scalo Superelletra electric supercar at 2017 Geneva Motor Show
Italdesign Zerouno, a new supercar that features an aerodynamic body made entirely out of carbon fiber with a race-spec rear wing equipped with a central longitudinal fin graces the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Zerouno also flaunts a pair of lightweight side mirrors, different wheels, a titanium muffler, and carbon fiber constructed seat frames which further help reduce weight.
Similar to the Audi R8 V10 Plus and the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4, at the heart of Zerouno is a mid-mounted and naturally aspirated 5.2-liter engine which can provide 610 horsepower (449 kilowatts) and 560 Newton-meters (413 pound-feet). Moreover, a seven-speed, dual–clutch gearbox is in charge of channeling the V10 muscle to both axles allowing the Zerouno to accelerate to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.2 seconds en route to a top speed of 205 mph (330 kph), hence reflecting the performances of the aforementioned R8 in the Plus guise.
With the aid of Pirelli, Italdesign has created a unique version of P Zero tires for the supercar’s 20-inch OZ wheels shod in 245/30 R20 front and 305/30 R20 high-performance rubbers. Also, carbon ceramic breaks provide necessary stopping power behind the lightweight wheels in order to match the V10’s distinct rumble.Read the entire article 2017 Geneva Motor Show: Italdesign Zerouno supercar flaunts a hot carbon fiber body
It’s Zenvo’s most grandiose creation so far. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Zenvo of Denmark is currently showing off the TS1 Grand Tourer at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Troels Vollertsen, Zenvo founder expressed in a statement how it makes him feel proud and humble to present the TS1 GT at Geneva as they celebrate the company’s 10th anniversary.
Vollertsen added that they have already achieved a lot as a company with a small team of very dedicated people. He also said that they all recognize their heritage as forerunners in technology. For that same reason, Zenvo will continue in its commitment to develop cars that give the owners that “perfect driving pleasure”, “quality” and “sensational experience of performance.”
On display is a two-seater carbon-bodied sports car. At the same event, the Danish supercar manufacturer also reveals its 5.8-litre V8 engine with two superchargers. This gives the Zenvo TS1 GT an increased 1,163hp (1,147bhp) output at 7,700 rounds per minute with up to 811 (1,100 Nm) pound feet of torque.Read the entire article 2017 Geneva Motor Show: Zenvo TS1 Grand Tourer (GT) marks brand’s 10th anniversary
Many automakers today try to outdo one another by making their design more interesting and more attractive to the customers. Nothing is truer than what Techrules did for the AT96 Concept and the GT96 TREV Concept. New images have surfaced showing a near-production version that was still wearing full body camouflage in an attempt to hide what people behind this project are saying as a design that can evoke emotions.
Viewed from the top, the canopy is clearly styled to be like a jet fighter. This particular impression is highlighted further when one goes inside especially with the driver’s seat not placed in the center. The amazing shape is a result of the work done by Giorgetto Giugiaro who worked with his son Fabrizio Giugiaro. Hailing from Italy, the Giugiaros are known for designing not only supercars as they also create cars intended for daily use. With this, it is clear that there is a high possibility that once the covering is off, it will have an exceptional design.
The company however has yet to reveal the actual technical specifications of this production version. Though there is a large possibility that it will have the same equipment as the concept versions. As seen in the concept versions, there was a total of six electric motors with two placed at each of the wheels in the rear and the remaining two put on each of the wheels in the front. Combined output therefore is at 1,030 hp (768 kW) with peak torque of 6,372 lb.-ft. (8,640 Nm).Read the entire article Images of Techrules supercar show jet fighter-like form
Are you a big fan of legendary boxer Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight world champion? Or are you a big fan of the iconic Ferrari F50? Either way, you will be glad to learn that a Ferrari F50 used to be owned by Tyson is being placed on the auction block next month.
When it was first released in 1995, the Ferrari F50 instantly gained fame and adoration due to the fact that it was based on the Formula One car – the Ferrari 641. And this had managed to log a second place finish for Ferrari both in the Drivers’ and Constructor championships in 1990. Essentially, it was likened to an F1 car that could be driven legally on the road.
As designed by Pininfarina, the Ferrari F50 was powered by a 4.7-liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine that was directly derived from the powerplant lying underneath the bonnet of the Ferrari 641 F1 car. This 198-kg high-revving (up to 10,000 rpm) V12 engine is able to provide 520 PS (382 kW or 513 hp) of max output at 8,000 rpm and 347 lb.-ft. (470 Nm) of peak torque available at 6,500 rpm.Read the entire article Mike Tyson’s former 1995 Ferrari F50 car to be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s
Moncalieri-based Italdesign Giugiaro revealed that it will be launching its first ever ultra-limited series car. This announcement follows the recent launch of its “Italdesign Automobili Speciali.” Designed mainly for creative enthusiasts and collectors, the brand said it will be manufacturing a total of five towards the end of 2017. With this series, customers will get to experience the performance and features of racing cars combined with the usual attributes of a normal road car.
Using a modular chassis composed of aluminum and carbon fiber, this model has an overall length of 4,847 mm, with total width of 1,970 mm and height at 1,204 mm. Under the hood is the 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated engine which allows it to reach maximum speed of at least 330 km/h and acceleration from 0 km/h to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds.
Commenting on this limited edition model, Head of Innovation Design Filippo Perini shared that because of the way it is structured, the brand was able to improve the aerodynamics. The reason for this, he added, was to set performance as the goal, resulting in the team going far beyond what was required in terms of style and even from a technical viewpoint.Read the entire article Italdesign Speciali is an ultra-limited supercar
Tesla, please meet Classic Factory, a new startup design company from Switzerland that is bound to unveil at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show the new Elextra electric supercar that could be quicker than a souped-up Tesla Model S on the sprint.
Project Elextra – spearheaded by Classic Factory chief executive and Swiss designer Robert Palm as well as Danish entrepreneur Poul Sohl – is currently developing a new four-door four-seat electric supercar that could accelerate from standstill to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in less than 2.3 seconds.
While the top speed of this Elextra electric supercar remains undisclosed, its sprint time is more or less at par with that of the Tesla Model S P100D, especially the version with the Ludicrous+ software update. Tests engaged by the Motor Trend magazine have shown that the Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous+ was able to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) from zero in just 2.28 seconds. However, there were doubts that the Tesla Model S P100D actually achieved such acceleration time, as the electric supercar actually completed the sprint in 2.53 seconds.Read the entire article Elextra electric supercar claims to sprint to 62 mph in just 2.3 seconds
True supercar enthusiasts know there is only one or two street-legal Ferrari Enzo FXX Evoluzione in the entire world. For those who have everything but couldn’t get enough of just about anything, this is quite an opportunity they wouldn’t want to miss. The only roadworthy Ferrari Enzo FXX is up for sale for £9,999,999 or a little over $12 million at Amari Supercars.
Based on the listing, the FXX Evoluzione was initially registered in the UK in 2015. For a street car, it has a significantly low mileage considering it’s been driven for only 1300 miles after it was bought for the first time in 2008. The dealer’s website has dubbed it as the world’s only street legal FXX. Apparently, another road legal FXX Enzo also exists in Germany. As we searched for more details about this offer, we found out that Edo Competition has its own Enzo “street car turned legal” and calls it the ZXX.
In order to make the Enzo FXX street legal, the first owner of the Enzo FXX Evoluzione asked Ferrari to adjust the ride height a little bit higher off the ground. During the process, the supercar has also been equipped with a new set of headlights, handbrake, signal lights, brake lights, a front axle lifter and a softer suspension.Read the entire article Ferrari Enzo FXX Evoluzione on sale for 12.5 million USD
Ford has disclosed that the first ever production version of its 2017 Ford GT has gotten off the assembly line. This signals the start of production of a model that was first revealed during the 2015 North American International Auto Show held in Detroit. This means that the brand will be able to deliver to customers a model nearly two years after it was initially unveiled.
The 2017 Ford GT is being manufactured at the brand’s Multimatic facility located in Markham, Ontario. Regarding this important milestone, Ford Executive Vice-President for Global Product Development Raj Nair shared that at the start of 2016, Ford had two main objectives. The first is that the brand would be able to experience success during the Le Mans with the second being able to begin deliveries before the end of 2016. Nair said he is proud to say the brand has managed to achieve both. Aside from being VP, Nair is also the Chief Technical Officer at Ford.
Nair continued by saying that this indeed marks a celebration for everyone who was part of making this model a reality. This includes the design team and even all the employees as well as the suppliers. Through the Ford GT, the brand hopes to show that it remains committed to offering customers more and to prove how strong it is when it comes to innovation, Nair added. Examples include the EcoBoost engine technologies, aerodynamics, and use of lightweight materials.Read the entire article 2017 Ford GT production version officially rolls off the line
Soon, Aston Martin will be mesmerizing us with the follow-up to its Vulcan track-focused supercar – the AM-RB 001, a hypercar jointly developed by the British carmaker and Red Bull. The Vulcan and the AM-RB 001 are a duo of super performance cars from Aston Martin that impresses as a splendid work of art and a product of advanced engineering.
However, there is an automotive designer from Lyon, France who thinks that a third super performance car should be added to the duo – making up a new holy trinity for McLaren. This designer – named Adrien Fuinel – has created a visual rendition of the new (but not official) supercar from Aston Martin, the Aston Martin RR supercar concept. This rendition was then uploaded into his account at Behance, a Web site that allows for showcasing and discovering creative works.
At first look, you wouldn’t believe that the RR supercar concept is an Aston Martin. Well, that could be because -- aside from the front end and a ground clearance derived from the Vulcan and a few styling cues -- the curves and the body work of the RR supercar concept are not typical of an Aston Martin. But since this is a concept, maybe we can forgive Fuinel for that.Read the entire article French artist Adrien Fuinel renders Aston Martin RR supercar concept
There was a time when cameras were not too portable and people only used them sporadically. Thus, we all have these missed moments. We failed to record these snippets of time that we will never again have.
Technology has changed the way people communicate and record history. Sharing on social media has become prevalent. Mobile phones are no longer just devices you use for calling as they have become an extension of your work and personal life. These days, people automatically whip out their phones when something unusual happens. Whether it’s an elusive officemate who suddenly shows up at a party or when an exotic car happens to pass by.
Now here’s the latest news report that has been dominating social media: a driver crashed his van into a rare Pagani Zonda F while he was filming it. The exotic car is owned by Jorge Gómez, an Argentinian businessman who happens to have his Pagani registered in Paraguay. Based on the reports that came from Autoblog.com.ar, Gómez recounted how it took him eleven years to finally buy a Zonda. This must’ve hurt really bad. Ouch.Read the entire article What a disgraceful news: Pagani Zonda F hit by a van! [w/video]
