Nine of the Fastest Accelerating Production Cars of 2016

For a long time, top speed has been the basis in measuring a vehicle’s capability and performance. However, this has become an impractical way since performance cars simply cannot achieve such a speed outside the test track due to road conditions and structure.

Thus, quickness in acceleration becomes a better measure. In terms or racing, it is more practical to record the time it takes for a car to get to a certain speed; standard international scale go by 0 to 100 kilometers or an equivalent 0 to 62 miles per hour while American vehicles us the 60 mph standard.

The ability of a car to get itself to speed up from around a corner is a more significant factor to consider than how it is able to start off at full speed but having to slow down when it comes to a corner.

McLaren P1 GT By Lanzante Motorsport turns heads at 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Lanzante Motosport is taking advantage of the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed to showcase its latest conversion project – the McLaren P1 GT By Lanzante. Allegedly commissioned by a rich client from the Middle East, the McLaren P1 GT By Lanzante is essentially a McLaren P1 GTR converted into a Longtail, easily capturing the attention of visitors at Goodwood.

Doing a project based from a McLaren P1 GTR isn't something new to Lanzante. After all, the British racing had been converting the track-only P1 GTR for use on the road. Lanzante also had six P1 GTR units converted to become road-legal P1 LM versions. Five of these P1 LM units were sold while the sixth example was retained as the XP1 LM to be used for development and testing. Interestingly, the XP1 LM managed to set the fastest ever time for a road car on the Goodwood hillclimb of the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed, completing the 1.86-km course at just 47.07 seconds.

Now, another P1 GTR is making waves at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, but this time it has been converted into a longtail – the McLaren P1 GT By Lanzante. Prior to the event, Lanzante had been teasing us with the P1 GT conversion. The teases proved to be worth paying attention to, as the P1 GT revealed at Goodwood is spectacularly impressive.

Bugatti offers 15-year warranty as part of its Veyron Loyalty Maintenance Program

There’s great news for Bugatti Veyron owners as the automaker recently introduced the Loyalty Maintenance Program to help customers maintain the condition of their cars and to allow them to keep their vehicles in mint condition.

The Loyalty Maintenance Program is actually part of the company’s Extended Warranty and Extended Warranty Plus programs, which can last for as long as 15 years. Owning a Bugatti Veyron can be very expensive; the maintenance costs alone are already high. The brand hopes that this program will help reduce operating costs for owners.

Franco Utzeri, head of Bugatti Certified and Financial Services, says that the Bugatti Customer Service is definitely more than just a seal of approval, making a difference for Veyron owners. It includes warranty, individual support, and a combination of a confirmed vehicle history. The automaker’s goal is also to give their customers a unique experience and 360 degree ownership that no other automaker currently offers.

This extremely rare McLaren P1 MSO in matte black is looking for a new owner

As there are only 375 McLaren P1s in the world and all of them have been completely sold out, McLaren’s hybrid hypercar is truly one of its kind. But what if we tell you there is one that actually stands out among all the McLaren P1s out there? Not only that, it has also increased in market value bearing in mind the $1.3M price tag that initially came with the P1.

Currently on sale at James Edition is an extremely unique example of McLaren P1 by McLaren Special Operations. Its seller, Premium Automotive Concept, is based in Germany and has been selling it with a listed price of €2.170.000 (or approximately 2,561.468 USD).

The owner of this particularly rare example had first ordered it in matte black as you can see from the photo. But then the rest of its body panels are finished either in carbon fiber or gloss black as well, making it stand out all the more from any regular P1s we’ve seen before.

While Bugatti doesn’t sell itself short when it comes to performance, many people know it doesn’t have enough oomph to stand out. Simply put; the French marque tends to go for subtlety, unlike other exotic hypercars with sharp edges or flashy color schemes. All the same, there is truly nothing wrong with a Veyron wrapped in gold as it is a car that costs over a million dollars.

American actor and Grammy award winning musician Jamie Foxx took to Instagram as he showed-off his newly customized Bugatti Veyron. His car, which used to be painted in a standard black and blue two-tone combination, now looks every inch an object built for those with the most expensive preferences.

Foxx opted for a gold wrap on every panel except for the horseshoe grille, door handles and center wheel caps that come with the standard chrome finish. On his post, the singer/ songwriter uploaded a photo of his gold Veyron with a caption saying; “I was feeling solid gold today when I drove in for work…”. He ended it with a Bugatti hashtag before telling more about Beat Shazam, an all-new game show he will be hosting on Fox TV.

How much are you willing to pay for the one-off super exclusive Bugatti Veyron Mansory Linea Vincero? As it is one of the most expensive cars out there, being seen driving it will make everyone sit up and take notice.

We are aware that whoever can afford a brand new Bugatti Chiron has an extra $2.9 million sitting in their bank, and definitely a lot more to keep it maintained every year or so. If you have been eyeing one but don’t want to spend that much, you can always get a second hand Bugatti. However, not all second hand units are cheaper than a brand new one. In this case, there is a 2008 Mansory Linea Vincero that is currently being sold through Dupont Registry. It is as luxurious as it sounds, plus it is a one-of-one model so don’t expect it to cost less than a brand new Chiron.

This beauty is just one of three Mansory Bugattis you will find in the world, and it is the only example ever built. What makes it more unique is the fact that it had been customized by the infamous German tuning shop, and has a full carbon body exterior. The Veyron has also been given a facelift, now with a “V” built into the front bumper, and LED daytime running lights that complement the new front fenders and front apron. To complete the look, gold wheels and gold side mirrors were added for a more luxurious feel.

Held every two years since 2011, RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba alongside the shores of Lake Como in Italy, will be putting up for auction an impressive trio of hybrid hypercars on the 27th of May. The trio consists of: a Ferrari LaFerrari, a road-legal conversion of the McLaren P1 GTR, and a Porsche 918 Spyder. In the past three events they have held, the auction house has never had these three hypercars, all at the same time. So for those of you who have a lot saved in the bank, it’s your chance to bid on these bad boys.

Let us get into the details of each one. First, the LaFerrari has a classic Ferrari body paint of a Rosso Corsa red and black accents on the roof and side mirrors. As for the interior, it comes with matching black leather and crimson details. It only has 112 miles (180 kilometers) of mileage, since it was first bought in 2014, and after having two owners. This model has an estimated market price of €2.65 million to €3.2 million euros.

Up next would be the McLaren P1 GTR. This 986 horsepower (725 kilowatt) hypercar features the LM conversion by Lanzante Motorsport. Being just one of ten models that have been converted into a road-legal track-only hypercar, this one has got to be pricey. Another factor that has raised the price is the fact that it has only been driven 224 miles. The auction house estimates this one to be priced at €3.2 million to €3.6 million.

Is there anyone out here who wishes to have a Bugatti Veyron replica instead of the real thing? Just in case, there is a 2002 Ford Cougar-turned-Veyron from eBay with a “buy it now” price of 75,000 USD. If you think the seller is asking far too much, don’t judge him very quickly. To justify the amount, the owner has specified that it actually cost him $98,000 to turn it into a Bugatti Veyron. Well, kind of.

Nevertheless, the asking price is quite a steal for a “Bugatti” but it would be really way over the top for a Cougar. For those who might be interested, the car up on sale is made out of a 2002 Ford Mercury Cougar with 193,120 km accumulated mileage.

Call it “Fugatti Ceyron”, “Cugatti Feyron” or whatever names you like, but it features virtually similar characteristics as that of the original. At least in terms of body works and two-tone body paint distinctive in all its designs. Of course a true Bugatti enthusiast would certainly know the difference between a knockoff and a real Veyron.

As far as history goes, Germany invaded France – and a couple of nations -- in World War II. What if, in the course of the war, German carmaker Volkswagen Group was able to absorb French carmaker Bugatti? A whole lot of things would have happened. Rendering artist RC Workchop has its own idea of what would have transpired if Bugatti became part of VW, and that includes a 1945 Bugatti Veyron.

RC Workchop’s 1945 Bugatti Veyron is just a speculative rendering. Of course, there are many reasons why such rendering as an actual vehicle would be next to impossible in 1945. But for the sake of automotive art, creativity and design, this work is very laudable and pretty convincing.

As we can see, the 1945 Bugatti Veyron rendering could be best described as a more streamlined version of the VW Beetle with various Bugatti design cues as seen on the real Veyron. Up front, the 1945 Bugatti Veyron looks more like a VW Beetle with the front wheelarches overextending forward. The front end is also defined by headlights and front bumper from the VW Beetle. However, this special rendering also features the horseshoe grille found on the Bugatti Veyron with the brand’s red Bugatti oval logo. The positioning of the grille is somewhat awkward, since at the time, the engine of the Beetle was located on the rear compartment.

The Bugatti Veyron surely comes with a lot of surprising twists even after more than ten years have passed. Here in the picture, we have a fusion of the exotic EB110 and the current Veyron model.

HPF Design’s mashup of classic and modern styling surely looks incredible. The rendered image combines some of the most legendary styling cues of the EB110 SS with the Veyron’s body.

Did you notice the new headlamps on the French hyper car? That’s from the old-school Bugatti model. How about that smaller grille at the front, fixed rear wing, wing mirror design and sharper contours along the body?

For the longest time, the Bugatti Veyron’s 1,200 hp and 1,100 lb-ft of torque had been enough to outrun any high performance car on the track. But for Mate Rimac, founder of Rimac Automobili, the Concept One’s 1,088 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque may be the Veyron’s greatest challenger.

So last year, Rimac rose to the challenge and prepared to prove wrong his friend, William Alexander Sidney Herbert, also known as the 18th Earl of Pembroke. The Lord, who is also the founder of Wilton Classic and Supercar owns a ten-year-old Bugatti monster.

The pair went for a cruise in Croatia’s picturesque coastal roads with Sir William Herbert’s Bugatti Veyron in tow. While in there, Miro Zrncevic, Rimac’s official test driver went behind the wheel of the Concept One while the English heir drove his own supercar. The two hit the track in no time and even had the “drag race” recorded.

The last Bugatti Veyron Super Sport will be auctioned next month with an estimated starting price of £2 million. Although RM Sotheby hasn’t given the auction price as of now, a Super Sport would’ve cost at least £1.2 million in 2013. A brand new Veyron would’ve cost over 1.7 million today.

Since there were only 300 coupes made under Bugatti’s “Super Sport 300”, each model is considered a rare find. The last one, which will be sold at the auction would’ve had the number “300” stamped on its chassis. The Super Sport being sold is still under the possession of its first owner. There were a total of 8 US-specified models sold when it was initially released. The last Bugatti Veyron Super Sport was also showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show together with the first ever Bugatti Veyron.

Ever since the owner bought it, the Super Sport has run about less than 400 miles. Out of this, around 269 miles were accumulated during test runs before delivery. The original owner has also brought it to Beverly Hills and Miami for regular maintenance.

One of these track-only cars is McLaren’s P1 GTR. McLaren decided it be best that the P1 GTR be a limited-edition vehicle and built only 45 examples of this monstrous machine. The road-legal P1 is a member of the Hypercar Holy Trinity alongside the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918. Now imagine the power of that street-legal car and the monstrosity that is the P1 GTR – the latter being the most chosen one for performance enthusiasts.

Now, in a way, it won’t be a waste if the P1 GTR was constantly found on various circuits in the world, but it would be a lost opportunity for an enthusiast not to be able to witness the power hidden in this vicious track beast. So, what better way to witness the splendor of the P1 GTR than to submit it to a conversion specialist. It’s a tough task, but it’s what their engineers are trained to do.

Over time, the number of converted P1 GTR’s has increased. Although there hasn’t been any confirmed ratio of track-only versus converted P1 GTR’s, it seems like more and more owners are sending their goodies out to conversion specialists. For whatever reason these conversions are for, we wouldn’t know, but what we’re pretty sure is that it will cost more than it originally did.

Ferrari and McLaren have been in close competition with each other for as long as most of us could remember. First there was their constant rivalry to achieve first place in the Formula 1 arena. The competition extended into the production of road-worthy supercars.

Through this constant struggle to become the best of the best, these automakers have (for the most part) created several of the most powerful vehicles of this generation. One of those vehicles is McLaren’s F1 which has outperformed its competitors and that which to this day would still be a vicious contender to modern day supercars.

However, the most celebrated amongst the McLaren cars is the one that took about twenty two years for the McLaren Formula One engineers to actually conceptualize. This vehicle is none other than the McLaren P1, the car to complete the hypercar trinity. At a base price of more than a million dollars, it is expected that this vehicle is the best of the best.

To cap off this year’s UEFA European Championship commonly known to us as the Euro 2016, Portugal came from behind the French squad and snagged the title for this prestigious soccer event. Portugal’s national team, led by renowned professional footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, goes home to a 1-0 victory against France in a match that kept people (especially the Portuguese fans) on their toes. Ronaldo had to tearfully hit the bench on an accidental collision with Dimitri Payet on the first half of the game but the Portuguese football club still managed to secure their victory.

Most people would probably treat themselves on a luxury cruise or go on a lavish vacation somewhere in the Maldives or on a Safari adventure but Cristiano Ronaldo is no ordinary human being. While we hope to go somewhere relaxing to reward ourselves for all our hardwork, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to celebrate Portugal’s win at the Euros by buying himself a new car. Not just any car but a Bugatti Veyron.

The Portugal football club captain and Real Madrid striker is known to own a collection of luxury vehicles including a black Porsche 911, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 599 GTO, two Bentley Continental GT’s, a Cayenne Turbo and a BMW M6. Ronaldo posted a photo of his new acquisition on Instagram with a caption “The animal arrive”. Sure enough, his Bugatti Veyron is an exceptional car as it is a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse – one of approximately 450 units produced.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the word “uber” is used to denote a particular kind of person who is a “great or extreme example”. It can also be used to describe things that are a “superlative example” of its class. The term is basically a connotation of supremacy or excessiveness of something.

In today’s innovative world, we often connect the term “uber” to a special mode of transportation – instead of booking a taxi, people are able to choose the kind of vehicle ranging from the most common sedans to the most luxurious cars that can be found in the planet. Founded around 7 years ago, Uber Technologies Inc. has been serving its customers who depend on vehicles for hire with utmost care and giving them the same comfort as if owning their own vehicles.

Actually, almost anyone can become an Uber driver as long as you have a driver’s license, have a car, registered with the company and of course, is sane enough so you do not put yourself and your passenger in harm’s way. Now, it doesn’t matter what kind of car you’re driving but it also wouldn’t hurt to add a little effort for extra comfort and luxury to earn high ratings.

The McLaren F1 GTR was the first McLaren that was able to use the GTR moniker and has further brought glory to the British Formula One team after winning the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours. It is one of the most significant cars that have brought the McLaren name its rightful spot as one of the world’s best racers.

But wait, there’s more. McLaren has yet again brought forth to this world another track weapon that will leave its competitors eating dust. In 2015, McLaren introduced another powerful track monster straight from the geniuses of its engineers – the McLaren P1 GTR. McLaren’s team of engineers has extracted more power and performance from the already-great P1. They set lose the track weapon that is the GTR version.

The P1 GTR is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of producing a whopping 986 horsepower and that can speed up from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. It features the Drag Reduction System on the large fixed rear wing which was derived from the Formula 1. To reduce aerodynamic drag, the wing mirrors are repositioned to the A pillars in such a way that it gets closer to the driver’s line of sight. The car is suspended by 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels and comes with an all-new “straight cut twin pipe design” exclusive only for GTR models.

A gray McLaren P1 crashed at a highway near Hangzhou City in China. The right-rear and the left-front parts of the vehicle were severely damaged. A Chinese Buick LaCrosse was also hit.

According to observations, the McLaren P1 hit the Buick LaCrosse, which explains the left-front damage. The former then steered away, damaging the right-rear. However, details of the accident and its cause are still unclear. On a positive note, the driver is safe.

This recent tragedy is another addition to the long list of supercar accidents in China, which has led many to conclude that the country is barely ready for high-powered supercars.

Automotive engineers have studied and have undergone rigorous training to be able to create the perfect motor vehicle - and this includes making the most precise mechanical and natural systems. Knowing that people do make mistakes, it is the automotive engineer's task to think ahead for possible problems that may arise in the future.

They have to put themselves in someone else's shoes, someone who doesn't speak automotive jargon, and be able to make solutions that are as easy as one, two, three. Being an automotive engineer is a tough job and there will always be some glitch in the system where things just don't go the way it's supposed to.

Even those who have built the most technologically advanced cars have to go through trial and error to spot problems. Lucky for those whose technical problems have arisen prior to distribution but there are just unlucky few that have had to be recalled. One of those unlucky few is the Bugatti Veyron.
