850 hp Brabus 850 Buscemi Edition unveiled at 2017 Dubai Motor Show

The current generation of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class that has been in existence since 1990 (W463) is set to hit the end of the road soon. But it remains to be a favorite base among a number of tuners, including Brabus. In fact, Brabus has teamed up with footwear designer Jon Buscemi to create an exclusive version of the G-Class -- the new Brabus 850 Buscemi Edition -- as unveiled to the global public at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show.

As the name of this all-terrain creation indicates, it comes with a massive 850 hp (625 kW or 838 bhp) of output at 5,400 rpm. This comes courtesy of a Brabus 850 6.0 twin-turbo V8 engine which had its stock displacement of 5,461 cc increased to 5,912 cc (333 cubic inches to 361 cubic inches).

This engine, also tuned to deliver a whopping 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm, had its two production turbochargers replaced with turbochargers featuring modified exhaust manifolds and a larger compressor unit.

Chevrolet unveils 755 hp 2019 Corvette ZR1 at 2017 Dubai Motor Show

The wait is over and it is much worth it. The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 supercar is returning for the 2019 model year, and it is out to present a good challenge against current high-performance cars in the market. Aside from its very aggressive function-driven appearance, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 is also powered by a new exclusive supercharged V8 engine offering more than 700 horses on tap.

Chevrolet is resurrecting the ZR1 nameplate once more, signifying its intention to remain as one of the leaders in the supercar pack. By virtue of performance, the resurrected ZR1 lives up to its name as the new performance flagship of the Chevrolet brand. The previous ZR1 (Chevrolet Corvette C6) was powerful with its supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V8 engine delivering 638 hp (476 kW) of max output and a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).

Nonetheless, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 won’t lose after all as it has a more powerful engine under its hood. This is the main reason why Chevrolet dubbed the 2019 ZR1 as the fastest and most powerful production Corvette. This mill is the exclusive supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine officially dubbed as the LT5. This LT5 engine is designed to deliver the highest output so far for a Chevrolet production vehicle, as partly made possible by a new, more efficient intercooled supercharger that boasts of a displacement that is 52-percent larger than on the system found on the LT4 mill of the Corvette Z06. This is complemented by new dual-fuel-injection system employing primary direct injection and supplemental port injection. As a result, the new supercharged LT5 engine is able to deliver a whopping 755 hp (563 kW) of max output and 715 lb.-ft. (969 Nm) of peak torque (SAE-rated). Power is sent to the wheels through either a seven-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. Top speed of the Corvette ZR1 is pegged at over 210 mph.

Infiniti updates styling of its 2018 QX80 SUV for a bolder appearance

There is both good and bad news for fans of the Infiniti QX80 sports utility vehicle. Bad news is that this luxury SUV remains at its current second generation even after eight years in the market. Good news is that for the 2018 model year, the Infiniti QX80 is getting a major refresh.

Compared to the headlamps of the outgoing QX80, the ones on the 2018 iteration have been raised to be more in line with the top end of the massive grille.

Bugatti introduced the Legend “Meo Costantini”, its third model in the six-part edition “Les Legendes de Bugatti”. As its name says it, this special edition of the Veyron Grand Sport is dedicated to Meo Costantini and is reminiscent of the Bugatti Type 35 a.k.a. one of the most successful racing cars of all time.

The new supercar was introduced at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show and as we said it pays tribute to Meo Costantini, a close friend of the company’s founder Ettore Bugatti as well as the head of Bugatti’s factory race team for many years, but also a driver, winning the Targa Florio two times in the Type 35. The Legend Edition “Meo Costantini” costs 2.09 million euros, excluding taxes and transport, and if you want one you’d better hurry up as only three units will be available.

Just like the Vitesse “Jean Pierre Wimille and the Vitesse ”Jean Bugatti”, the Legend “Meo Costantini” is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, which means it uses the same 8-liter W16 engine rated at 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of torque. With these numbers, it sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.6 seconds and has a top speed of 408 km/h (253 mph) with the roof down.
