McLaren Special Operations division (MSO) recently finished two new bespoke supercars: an MSO R Coupe, and an MSO R Spider. Both vehicles were based on the 650S and are fitted with a number of features. There’s another thing you should know: both vehicles were also made for one lucky and wealthy customer.
The coupe and the spider are among the latest projects of the MSO, and both are equipped with the same internal, external and mechanical specifications. For instance, both come with a 3.8 liter biturbo V8 that carries out 679 horsepower (506 kilowatts) and 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres) of torque. That is actually quite a big difference when you compare it to the standard 650S that produces only 641 horsepower (477 kilowatts). To give them both a unique roar, they were given a new titanium exhaust system with a crossover muffler.
To give them the overall package, both models will be given a dramatic-looking exterior, finished in a beautiful Liquid Silver paint, contrasted by a unique Delta Red pin stripe feature on both the front splitter and side blades. It has been given new elements like the MSO Visual Carbon Viber (VCF) front bumper, hood, louvered fenders, roof scoop, side mirror casing, and the rear decklid. The owner will be reminded of MSO when looking at the exterior, because of the splitter, side skirts, door sills, and rocker panels. Lastly, the coupe comes with a set of new satin black five-spoke wheels, while the spider has been fitted with five-spoke gloss black wheels.Read the entire article MSO R Coupe and Spider: two unique McLaren vehicles built for one customer
China is world’s largest market and McLaren sees some impressive sales and in order to boost the numbers even further, the British supercar manufacturer announced its first regionally tailored model aimed at the Asian market. Dubbed the McLaren 625C, the new model is based on the globally available 650S.
As expected, ‘625’ resembles the power delivered by the 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 engine (625 hp), while the ‘C’ stands for ‘Club.’ In addition, the engine delivers 610 Nm of torque and is bolted to a 7-speed SSG transmission.
When equipped with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, the McLaren 625C Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.8 seconds, to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 26.7 seconds, while top speed is 333 km/h or 207 mph.Read the entire article 2015 McLaren 625C Coupe and Spider debut just for the Asian market
Yesterday’s leaked photos, made McLaren release the official details and specs of its brand new 650S. Joining the range as an additional model alongside the 12C and the already sold-out McLaren P1, the 650S will be available as a fixed-head coupe or as a Spider, with a retractable folding hard top, just like the 12C Spider.
As expected, the 650S is powered by the same 3.8-liter M838T twin turbo V8 found on the 12C and the P1, delivering 650 hp. Meanwhile the ‘S’ letter stands for ‘Sport’, underlining the focus and developments made to handling, transmission, drivability and engagement. Unfortunately, McLaren did not release any performance figures for the 650S, but we do expect it to be faster than the “standard” 12C.
Regarding the design, the McLaren 650S is inspired by the P1 hypercar and features headlights that reflect a similar look to the P1, has a more integrated front splitter that helps to increased levels of downforce. Moreover, the 650S comes with unique door blades located behind the front wheels that direct air from the trailing edges of the front splitter.Read the entire article McLaren officially unveils the 650S Coupe, announces Spider version too
In order to mark its 50th anniversary, McLaren unveiled two commemorative models dubbed McLaren 50 12C and McLaren 50 12C Spider. As expected, the production of the two models will be limited to a maximum of 100 globally, split between just 50 examples of the 12C and 50 of the 12C Spider. Each model will feature a number of bespoke styling and specification enhancements to mark the milestone event, which will be celebrated on 2 September.
Some of the features include a redesigned front bumper, inspired by the limited-run HS Edition models. The lower section of the bumper is made from carbon fiber, while the front floor is made race-derived carbon Kevlar. Above the bumper, we find a McLaren F1-inspired heritage badge, previously available only to MSO clients, fitted on the bonnet.
The McLaren 50 12C and 12C Spider models are fitted as standard with carbon ceramic brakes featuring 394x36mm discs at the front, and 380x34mm at the rear.Read the entire article McLaren celebrates 50th anniversary with special 12C coupe and spider
If there’s one Toyota car that has kept everyone guessing, it is the Supra. It is finally coming our way as it makes its return on March 6 at the Geneva Motor Show. The automaker recently gave us a teaser of this dark silhouette that really shows nothing but the rear of the car with a massive spoiler attached to it.
Now, new images of the Toyota Supra had been published in a Japanese magazine and, this time, the photos show the entire car and not just the rear.
Though we would like to believe that this is the Toyota Supra that we will see next month, we have having some doubts about it as well. These photos have been shared on the Supra MXV forum, but were sourced from Best Car Magazine.Read the entire article Japanese magazine leaks undisguised images of the Toyota Supra
Toyota recently published a teaser with the title “The Legend Returns.” It’s not a secret as we already know that they are referring to none other than the Toyota Supra. For the longest time, Toyota enthusiasts anticipated the time that they will see the Supra, and finally, the automaker announced on social media, their media website and to email boxes around the world that it will arrive at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, describing it as a “modern racing concept” that they will bring back to the market.
Here is the thing, the automaker did not actually say which car it would be as they did not mention any names. In fact, it could be a new 2000GT. However, no matter how cool this vintage car is, it still is not considered to be as iconic as the Supra, which is why we doubt that it is the one being teased.
Also, another thing we are aware of is Toyota’s new project with BMW, the new sports car they are currently working on, that shares its underpinnings among both brands. We have actually seen this car, the next Z4 (the BMW version), a few times in prototype format, and we have seen both models being tested together. Also, we have already heard rumours from before that Toyota might unveil the new Supra in Geneva - and this is finally it, at least we think it is.Read the entire article Toyota shows off this sexy silhouette as teaser of Supra’s arrival at 2018 Geneva Motor Show
British automaker McLaren developed their MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division to make their already exclusive vehicles a little more bespoke. And today, we are going to discuss some of their newest and coolest products that indicate the company’s expertise in style and performance to the Sports Series range.
For instance, if you own a 570S Coupe, 570GT and 570S Spider, and you want to achieve a meaner sound, you can always order the new titanium exhaust. It is actually lighter than the stock unit by 11 pounds (5 kilograms). Best of all, it makes the sound it produces five decibels louder. MSO claims that the car’s new tone sounds cleaner and crisper, and that this comes from the rear end of the vehicle.
Today, the titanium exhaust runs 4,750 pounds ($6,570 at current exchange rates), and this part can be had in a Nano Black finish, instead of the standard Nano Clear colour. The good news here is that these add-ons will not only be available as an option for new cars, as later this year, MSO will be offering these as an upgrade to already existing Sports Series owners.Read the entire article Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust
After weeks or months of speculating about the name of the new Mercedes-Benz performance sedan, it’s finally revealed. The four door vehicle that will make its premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month is the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe. Even as the teaser images show the model in camouflage, these are still much clearer than previous ones.
At the same time that the company released this statement, it also published three photos of the four-door. Like I said earlier, the sedan’s appearance is camouflaged like that of earlier test mules. Nevertheless, we can make out several of its features.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe got most of its design elements from the 2017 Mercedes AMG Concept that we saw last year wearing a metallic red coat. Both vehicles have the similar wide grille and vertical slats with a trio of large inlets in the front fascia. There is also a steep A pillar that leads back to a flowing roof and rounded tail. In the rear, there is an active spoiler that can deploy from the back. Overall, its design makes it look both sporty and sleek.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz gives us another teaser of the four-door GT Coupe ahead of its Geneva debut
Today, the most powerful Mercedes-Benz model you could get is probably the twelve-cylinder S65 and Maybach S650 – as both models have an output of 621 horsepower. However, VATH decided that they would produce something beefier than that, as they took both the coupe and cabriolet versions of the C63 and worked on their 4.0 liter biturbo V8 engine so they could give out a lot more power.
After VATH worked its magic on the C63’s AMG engine, it no longer gives out just 503 horsepower in the S specification. Instead, the V8 engine can now produce as much as 690 horsepower. This V63RS package, which includes the 187 horsepower boost, will cost you right around €12,800 (or $15,900), and that does not include value added tax yet. The upgraded engine is paired to a seven speed automatic transmission. Other upgrades include a new turbocharger setup and downpipe, together with an uprated oil cooler for the engine.
It isn’t just the horsepower that gets a boost, but of course, the torque as well. Before it has been modified, the C63’s standard was 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres), and now, it has as much as 664 pound feet (900 Newton metres) of torque.Read the entire article VATH-tuned Mercedes-AMG C63 V63RS delivers 690 hp
Former Aston Martin designer turned entrepreneur, Henrik Fisker, is known for designing models like the Aston Martin DB9, the BMW Z8, the Fisker Karma or Karma Revero, and the newest one out there, which is the Fisker EMotion. But there is another model here that you probably did not even know of - the 2006 Fisker Latigo.
Fisker only built one example of this model, making it the very first and last production model. And it is now up for grabs on the website Bring a Trailer. To get this rare model brand new, it would have cost about $216,000; but currently, its value has gone down a bit and bidding is now set at about $37,500.
Fisker’s original plan was to build 150 units of the Latigo. But after they developed the prototype and built the first production model, the project was halted. One of the reasons for this was the rising of oil prices. This coachbuilt Fisker sits on the same platform as the 2006 BMW M6, while featuring a rebuilt 5.0 liter V10 tuned by RD Sport, which is paired to a seven speed sequential manual transmission. With that engine, this model can produce 665 horsepower (495 kilowatts).Read the entire article Ultra-rare 2006 Fisker Latigo based on BMW M6 is for sale
At Scottsdale, Arizona, the first 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with VIN 001 was sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for an impressive amount of $925,000. Every single cent that the automaker got from this auction will be going to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, specifically to its Building for America’s Bravest Program.
This foundation was established when the Siller family lost Stephen Siller, on September 11, 2011. He was a firefighter in New York City. This program’s goal is to build smart homes for service members that have been terribly injured and are returning home, as well as first responders. These homes are not only efficient, automated, and easily accessible, but they can also be personalized to the individual’s needs.
As mentioned earlier, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the very first example produced and auctioned. Under its hood is a 6.2 liter LT5 V8 engine that has an output of as much as 755 horsepower (563 kilowatts) and 715 pound feet (969 Newton metres) of torque. The winning bidder can choose whether to get a coupe version or a convertible. The new owner also gets to decide if this will be paired to a seven speed manual transmission with active rev matching or the eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.Read the entire article First 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 has been sold for $925K, proceeds go to charity
Scott Keogh, President of Audi of America, said in his interview with Roadshow that the United States market will again be able to get their hands on a RS5 Sportback that will soon join the RS5 Coupe. It took a while for the automaker to mention the existence of a range-topping variant of the stylish four door. Information on its availability in different regions has also not been divulged yet.
But that is not all. In fact, Keogh mentioned that they have another surprise that they are working on, though he stopped himself from saying further and did not reveal what it was. Instead, he teased us by saying that there is a cool European model that they have not brought in to the United States just yet, and that he considers it to be his number one car, and they perhaps they will get it. But to date, he did not confirm any of these reports.
If you analyze what Keogh said even further, there are a number of possibilities for this. Keogh could be referring to an RS4 Avant, depending on the timeframe he has in mind. That is because the said model is already ready right now and that it only needs an executive to sign off so it could already be added to the US lineup. The only problem here is that it might take 25 more years for this model to become eligible for US import.Read the entire article Audi’s US lineup will include RS5 Sportback and Coupe
We are aware that Land Rover is currently working on a two-door Range Rover, and it was just recently that the first official teaser of the new Range Rover SV Coupe came out. This includes images of the high end SUV’s luxurious cabin. And before you ask, the latest model will make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.
With the images we saw online, we could already tell that the Range Rover SV Coupe would be a highly pleasant vehicle to ride in. Up front, the seats are covered in quite, diamond quilted leather, with the same materials covering the dashboard. And in the rear, the same chairs are covered in a dark navy blue shade instead, giving it contrast, and at the same time, a luxurious feel. The center console has a wood trim that stretches to the entire length of the cabin, and this is paired with metallic trim that gives it a high-end appearance and feel.
It seems like the infotainment system will get the design of the Range Rover Velar. There is also a dial on the center console that probably controls off-road settings in the Range Rover, suggesting that it will have the ability to drive on different surfaces.Read the entire article Land Rover teases fancy interior of Range Rover SV Coupe, debut is set for 2018 Geneva Motor Show
McLaren will be offering customers of its Sports Series models more choices when it comes to customizations. The automaker has also upgraded its range of options. Undoubtedly, customers are sure to adore the performance-oriented Sport Pack in the 570GT model as it has many of the advantages offered by the 570S.
Compared to the standard version, the Sport Pack makes the front stiffer by 15% and the rear by 10%. Steering was enhanced as well as it has been made quicker by 2%. In addition to the quicker steering rack and the stiffer springs, the Sport Pack also comes with new damper software and improved stability control settings. Unlike the standard model, the carbon ceramic brakes are now fitted as standard rather than offered as an option. Further instead of the typical P Zeros tires, it will now have the hybrid track/road Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. However the electrochromic tinted roof is an option.
Those who want the Sport Pack will need to shell out around $6,600 (£4,900). Even then, McLaren estimates that 60% of the current 570GT customers are likely to avail of the Sport Pack.Read the entire article 2018 McLaren 570GT gains new Sport Pack, 5 Design Edition Packs
If you are looking for an awesome car, look no further than the BMW M4. But if you want something more exclusive than that, then you can opt for the Alpina-tuned 4 Series as this will definitely turn heads wherever you go.
Alpina has prepared a kit that isn’t just about the car’s looks as its performance will also be given a boost albeit, not by much. It gets a raise of 9 PS (9 horsepower) and 56 Newton metres (41 pound feet) of torque. The Alpina B4 S Bi Turbo carries out a little more power than the stock M4, thanks to its straight-six 3.0 liter engine. That may not sound a lot, but overall, that totals to an impressive number of 440 PS (434 HP) and 660 Nm (487 pound-feet) of torque in a wide speed range from 5,500 to 6,250 rpm.
For those of you who are interested in this Alpina tuned 4 Series, the white model is on display at BMW Abu Dhabi dealership. The special body kit comes with a custom front splitter, side skirts, and boot lid spoiler. It also has multi-spoke alloys and blue calipers, plus decals from the tuner.Read the entire article Alpina B4 S Bi-turbo is a cooler version than the BMW M4
Being able to afford a Rolls-Royce means that you have made it to the top of the chain so you probably don’t want to be subtle about it. You’d likely want one that’s painted in a bright, flashy colour. In this case, this RR Wraith that’s painted by the guys from Goodwood in a unique shade of Java Green is perfect for you. This eye-catching hue isn’t new. In fact, its parent company BMW has been offering this colour for quite some time now.
But then, this color is frequently seen on supercars, not so much on this luxurious coupe. So for this colour to appear on the Wraith is a bit of an oddity. But why not paint a rare car in a colour that you don’t normally see on it, right? It just makes it even more special, in our humble opinion.
When looking at this example with the dark theme applied onto the Spirit of Ecstasy figurine, it actually makes us think that we are dealing with the Black Badge edition that features a couple of black styling accents on the exterior. However, Rolls Royce denied this and said that it is not just an ordinary black shade because the hue was made even more intense than a normal black colour. This was also done after giving the paint multiple layers.Read the entire article This Java Green Rolls-Royce Wraith can be yours for $411K
When Lexus first launched the production version of the LC coupe, it surprised many because it had a strong resemblance with the LF-LC concept that many loved as seen back during the 2012 NAIAS.
Now, the LC coupe has an interesting body design, and it really is not the easiest model to modify, but Liberty Walk decided to do so anyway. And voila, customers can now get this body kit, which is available for both the LC500 as well as the LC500h. They also have two choices when getting the package, the FRP and the CFRP that costs from $13,380 to $19,440 outside of Japan.
So you are probably wondering what you would get with the Liberty Walk package. Well, that includes the Japanese tuner’s massive bolt-on fenders that are now actually considered to be the company’s signature. But that’s not all you will get of course, as this also comes with a front lip, side skirt add-ons, a boot lid-mounted wing, and a more aggressive rear diffuser.Read the entire article Liberty Walk outfitted the Lexus LC 500 in a flashy body kit
This year, there are a handful of new models as well as updated versions of existing cars that are lined up to be launched. There are so many of them that we can’t keep track of all of them. But today, we will be talking about the Competition version of the BMW M2 that may be presented in April 2018 at the Beijing auto show.
Firstly, customers will be able to get the M2 competition in new colours like Hockenheim Silver and Sunset Orange, which will be added to the other available colours including Alpine White, Sapphire Black, Mineral Grey, and Long Beach Blue. The one in the photograph is dressed in the Long Beach Blue shade. We have not seen how the other colours of the cars look just yet, but it should not be too long before we see them.
According to our sources, the M2 Competition will come equipped with a detuned version of the 3.0 liter twin turbo inline six, similar to the engines of the larger models, M3 and M4, replacing the N55 3.0 liter TwinScroll six-cylinder in the outgoing M2. The new engine can give an output of 400 horsepower, which is a little more than the existing M2 with an output of 365 horsepower, but a little less than the M3 and M4 that carries out 425 horsepower. Furthermore, it will have nearly 500 Newton metres of torque - not bad at all.Read the entire article BMW M2 Competition likely to be launched in Beijing this April
As coupe-styled sports utility vehicles gain a following among customers around the world, carmakers are also racing to offer sports activity coupes (SAC), as these vehicles are called. While the Volkswagen Tiguan is currently becoming one of the best-sellers in the world, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the German carmaker adds a coupe variant of the VW Tiguan.
Just recently, German automotive magazine Auto Bild published a report saying that VW is indeed planning to sport a coupe version of the Tiguan SUV. Auto Bild added that the VW could launch the Tiguan coupe-SUV as early as next year (2018). The magazine quipped that the German carmaker is seeing an opportunity to introduce the coupe-SUV version after it launched a now larger Tiguan, which is capable of accommodating an optional third-row seat.
The coupe-SUV version would mean that the Tiguan could now cater to more groups of potential customers. For instance, the coupe-SUV version of the Tiguan would be a great proposition to customers who don’t need the extra space offered by the now-larger SUV. These customers are willing to give up the extra room for the sake of driving a Tiguan that looks more chic and stylish. Featuring a smaller interior, the coupe-SUV variant of the VW Tiguan would also be less practical and less utilitarian. Its chic and stylish exterior would be matched by a premium-looking trim while its rear bench would be replaced by two more luxurious seats.Read the entire article VW to offer coupe version of Tiguan SUV, says German magazine
For a car that was just introduced in 2016, the Porsche 911 R (991 generation) is fetching a pretty high price in the resale market. Examples have changed hands for amount several times the original launch price of $184,900. In fact, a Porsche 911 R was sold by an Australian group early this year for over $900,000 (US). But now, a seller from California is selling a 911 R for half that asking price.
Ilusso, a dealer based in Costa Mesa, California, is selling a 2016 Porsche 911 R – which means it is essentially brand new -- for $409,000. This asking price is more than twice the original price of $184,900.
This particular 911 R being sold is wrapped in a jet black finish and features continuous colored stripes in dark grey over the entire mid-section. It also features a red 'Porsche' script as well as red-and-white door accents along each of its sides. It also rides on bright red 20-inch GT3 center lock wheels. Featuring a VIN (vehicle identification number) of WP0AF2A92GS195321, this 2016 Porsche 911 R only has 140 miles (225 km) on its odometer, which is the mileage of a newly driven sports car. This Porsche is number 286 of the 991 total units produced.Read the entire article California dealer is selling a jet black 2016 Porsche 911 R for $409,000
