Bugatti unveils fully dressed Chiron Sport at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

The Bugatti Chiron is probably one of the sportiest cars in the planet, thanks to its overwhelming power output of 1,500 hp and its hypercar design. If there is one car who could claim to be sportier than the Chiron, it is another creation from the French manufacturer – the new Bugatti Chiron Sport.

Bugatti’s formula for creating a sportier version of the Chiron doesn’t entail any increase or boost in power output or torque. The French high-performance carmaker didn’t need to tinker with the quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W16 engine to come up with the Chiron Sport. This means that power ratings for the Chiron Sport remain at 1,500 hp of max output and 1,180 lb.-ft. (1,600 Nm) of peak torque as transmitted to all wheels. Likewise, this means that Chiron Sport could complete a sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds, and achieve a top speed of up to 260 mph (420 km/h) – the same as the Chiron.

Aside from retaining the superb power and performance of the Chiron, the new Chiron Sport also features the same ease and convenience of driving. Instead of focusing on these elements, Bugatti decided to dramatically improve the handling of the new Chiron Sport and enhance its lateral dynamics on winding roads. To achieve this goal, the new Chiron Sport is fitted with a dynamic handling package and has been made lighter than the original model.

Koenigsegg’s most powerful car yet seen at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show

Four thousand, three hundred and sixty. Nope, it’s not just a number. Koenigsegg showed off all its rivals at this year’s Motor Show as its three cars have outputs that add up to a total horsepower of 4,360. That is equivalent to 3,251 kilowatts. It sure can light up a whole motor show!

Ok, so what are those three cars, you ask? After introducing the prototype last year, Koenigsegg showcased the first two customer Regeras, fresh from their factory in Angelholm, Sweden.

The first of the two sports an iconic green carbon fiber finish that represents the British Racing Green. Its interior, from the seats, the door panels, all the way to the dashboard is a basket-weave like leather in light Saddle Brown. The sleek design and the colour combination kind of gives it an ironic vintage-modern feel to it. Very unique, unlike your usual sports car.

Big names in auto industry came together to build Aston Martin Valkyrie

When Aston Martin first gave the world a glimpse of the Vulcan, everyone felt shock and awe. This happened considering that this track-only model was equipped with the V12 engine that could offer 820 hp (611 kW).

Well, be prepared for another surprise as the brand’s talented team of engineers appears to be at it again with a new V12 hypercar that is also street-legal. Hidden under the codename AM-RB 001, Aston Martin revealed that it will be called the Valkyrie, the name given to the female warriors of Norse lore.

Making this hypercar even more impressive is that while it is slated to become what may be the fastest production car there is, it is the result of a collaboration of a number of big names in the industry. In the lead, we recognize Red Bull Advanced Technologies and the Chief Technical Officer of the Red Bull Racing F1 Adrian Newey. Meanwhile, the naturally-aspirated customized 6.5-liter V12 engine was worked on by Cosworth together with Rimac, who will be responsible for the hybrid configuration. Rimac is well-known to many as the one who created the electric Concept One hypercar.

AM-RB 001 hypercar gets officially named as Aston Martin Valkyrie

The AM-RB 001 hypercar – a joint project of Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies – has been talked about much in the automotive world since it was officially announced in the middle of 2016. But as announced, AM-RB 001 is just a codename of the new hypercar. The true and actual name of the AM-RB 001 had remained a mystery up until recently, when the partners announced that they have baptized the hypercar as the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

This continues the lineage of Aston Martin’s V cars, starting from the Vantage in 1951. Monikers starting with the letter V are usually reserved for highly desirable cars whose engineering and performance capacities have been taken to the ultimate levels.

There was the Vantage, the Virage, the Vanquish and the Vulcan. Now, the new Aston Martin Valkyrie is continuing this naming tradition, as derived from ancient Norse mythology.

Koenigsegg Automotive AB has released a production version of the Koenigsegg Regera. Since its introduction during the 2015 Geneva Auto Show as a concept car, it has undergone an extreme phase that consisted of development, testing, and certification to be sold worldwide.

According to the company, more than 3,000 changes were implemented during the development stage in order to make the production version. One of the biggest changes is the reduction in weight as it now only weighs 1,590 kilograms while dry weight stands at 1,470. While the Regera received positive response during the 2015 Geneva Auto Show, it was also during this time that it received a number of orders from customers.

In order to mark its 20th anniversary, Koenigsegg introduced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show the new Agera One:1 a.k.a. world’s first Megacar. Why One:1? Because this is the first car in the world that has a 1:1 power to curb weight ratio homologated production car (1,341 kg/ 1,341 hp).

Under the hood we find the revised 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 1,341hp (986 kW) and an impressive 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque.

Why Megacar? Because it generates 1 Megawatt of power and it is again a first for a homolohated production car. According to Koenigsegg, top speed was not a priority as this is a track-focused car. Still, it is not slow as it achieved a simulated top speed of over 440 km/h or 273 mph.

Koenigsegg has officially unveiled the One:1, a vehicle described by the company as a mega car. Koenigsegg says that the One:1 comes with 1 megawatt of power, meaning that the 5.0-liter aluminum V8 engine generates 1,341 hp (986 kW) and an impressive 1,371 Nm of torque (1,011 lb-ft) @ 6,000 rpm.

Not only the amount of power generated by the engine is impressive, but also the weight of the new Koenigsegg One:1 as the car weighs just 1,341 kg (2,956 lbs). This means that the One:1 has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. Bolted to a 7-speed gearbox and using an electronic differential, the new Koenigsegg One:1 promises a top speed of 273 mph or 440 km/h, making it one of the fastest supercars found on the market.

Moreover, the One:1 zooms from 0 to 400 km/h (248.5 mph) in an incredible 20 seconds and is able to stop from that speed in just 10 seconds. The high-performance braking system uses 397 mm power-assisted ventilated ceramic discs with six-piston calipers on the front 380 mm ventilated ceramic discs with four-piston calipers on the rear. The braking system is the same found on the Agera R and needs only 28 meters to stop the Koenigsegg One:1 from 100 km/h (62 mph).

At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg will bring the exclusive One:1. For those who don’t know, Koenigsegg will build only six units of this limited edition and the company already sold all of them. One:1 nameplate refers to the supercar’s power to weight ratio: 1,400 kgs (3,086 lbs)/1,400 hp.

With these numbers, the Swedish supercar hits 400 km/h (248.5 mph) in less than 20 seconds, while the top speed will be somewhere beyond 450 km/h or 280 mph.

This means that the Koenigsegg One:1 will become world’s fastest supercar and this means that it will overtake the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Edition., which has an electronically-limited top-speed of 415 km/h (258 mph). Still, Bugatti says that its engineers tested the Veyron Super Sport World Edition and it achieved an impressive 431 km/h (268 mph).

For over 25 years, we’ve been waiting for the arrival of the promised ‘F1-for-the-road’ vehicle by different automakers. But it appears that McLaren’s powerful P1 hybrid flagship will be the first hypercar to deliver on this pledge. It is the successor to the McLaren F1 of 1993 so it’s no surprise that it will have an output of 903bhp from the V8-plus-electric power combo.

It is priced at £866,000. What makes the P1 stand out is its innovative active aerodynamics package. The P1 can deliver a drag factor of 0.34 in ‘clean’ form. It can also instantly set out a rear-mounted wing and two flaps ahead of the front wheels, in the right driving modes, to produce such unparalleled levels of downforce for a road car, making driving become easier as the car moves faster.

The P1 is capable of generating 600kg of downforce even when it’s far from its top speed of 217mph. This downforce is the same as that of numerous Le Mans racers and about five times higher than that of the newly launched McLaren MP4-12C. It’s also much better than its non-McLaren.

Earlier today we revealed you the first official photo of the LaFerrari, Ferrari’s latest supercar a.k.a. Enzo sccessor. Set to make its official debut today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the new LaFerrari is a limited series supercar and according to the Italian manufacturer only 499 will be made. Why this name?

Ok, enough with the talking, let’s see what this baby has for us. Ferrari says that the LaFerrari is the first car in its history to be powered by the HY-KERS System. This system includes a 6.3-liter V12 engine that delivers 800 hp at 9,250 rpm and 700 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm. Moreover, there is an electric motor that delivers 120 kW or 163 hp, which takes the total output delivered by the car at 963 hp.

The high torque levels available at low revs from the electric motor allowed the engineers to optimise the internal combustion engine’s performance at higher revs, thus providing a constant supply of exceptional power throughout the rev range.

McLaren has already commenced the production of the McLaren Senna sports car this year. On the other hand, Aston Martin will start building the much-anticipated Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar in 2019. There is no doubt that there is overwhelming interest in these limited-series production cars, and the top honcho of Italian sports car maker Lamborghini won't let such opportunity pass by.

Stefano Domenicali, chief executive of Automobili Lamborghini, has disclosed to Autocar that the Italian sports car maker is seriously considering building an “extreme aero” limited-series production car that would compete against the like of the McLaren Senna and Aston Martin Valkyrie.

According to Domenicali, Lamborghini’s possible new limited-series production car would be “in the vein of Centenario and Veneno,” which are both limited production hypercars that fetched millions of Euros in price. Lamborghini only built 40 examples of the Centenario, of which 20 are coupes and 20 are roadster. The production run for the Lamborghini Veneno was more limited, as only five coupes were built (only three were sold to customers) and only nine roadster versions were produced.
