Modena, Italy-based Ares Design is relatively a new company in the field of bespoke automotive design and modifications. But in the short time, Ares Design has demonstrated its capability of creating high-quality coach-built cars. Now, it is out to prove that once again, it can convert almost any vehicle into a bespoke creation through the new Project Wami.

Project Wami is Ares Design’s latest work, with the promise of becoming one of the most enticing roadsters ever made. However, there is yet no actual, final product at sight – the roadster has yet to exist. According to Ares Design, project is currently in its development stage. Nonetheless, based from the images released by the Italian tuning company, the Project Wami roadster looks gorgeous and holds a lot of promise.

Since there is actual car yet, the images of the Project Wami roadster released by Ares Design were just renderings. These are rendered images of how the final version of the Project Wami roadster would look like when it springs to life and take on the road.

Refreshed Audi R8 is given more powerful engines and new designations

Following the global debut of the new Audi R8 LMS GT3 at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the German premium carmaker is introducing the new Audi R8. The refreshed version of the Audi R8 boasts of a sharper look and better performance made possible by more powerful V10 engines and a modified suspension system.

As part of the upgrade of the new Audi R8, the premium carmaker is implementing a change in designation. From now on, the Audi R8 Coupé V10 and R8 Spyder V10 will be known as the Audi R8 Coupé V10 quattro and R8 Spyder V10 quattro. On the other hand, the Audi R8 Coupé and R8 Spyder V10 plus will be designated as Audi R8 Coupé performance Quattro and R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro. Audi plans to commence sales of the new R8 in the first quarter of 2019 in Germany and other markets in Europe.

Under the hood of the Audi R8 V10 quattro is a V10 naturally aspirated engine that has powered up by 22 kW (30 hp) and 10 Nm (7.4 lb.-ft.) to 419 kW (570 hp) of max output and 550 Nm (405.7 lb.-ft.) of peak torque. This allows the Audi R8 Coupe V10 quattro to sprint from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 3.4 seconds and the R8 Coupe V10 quattro in 3.5 seconds. Top speeds are 324km/h (201.3 mph) for the Coupe and 322 km/h (200.1 mph) for the Spyder.

Audi R8 V10 RWS is coming to the US at starting price of $139,950

Audi opened the order books for the Audi R8 V10 RWS ((Rear Wheel Series) in fall 2017 in Europe, with the model already arriving in dealership earlier this year. At the time it was unveiled, it was still unsure whether Audi is bring the new R8 V10 RWS to the United States. Now, the premium carmaker is indeed bringing the R8 V10 RWS, at a hefty starting price of $139,950 each, Motor Trend says citing its own source.

At this pricing, the Audi R8 V10 RWS – the carmaker’s first-ever production and street-legal rear-wheel-drive R8 model – is around $26,000 cheaper than the Quattro model. However, those who are interested in acquiring this edition of the R8 should remain always alert as to when it would arrive in the US, because only 320 examples are allocated for this market. While Audi didn’t give an official date for the arrival of the R8 V10 RWS in the US, it is expected that this would occur in the last quarter of the year.

The German carmaker only needed to get rid of the Quattro all-wheel-drive system to pave way to the RWD layout, thereby giving birth to the R8 V10 RWS. However, its powerful naturally aspirated V10 remains the same. The removal of the Quattro allowed the R8 V10 RWS to trim its weight by as much as 50 kg (110 pounds) for the Coupe model, and around 40 kg (88 lbs.) for the Spyder variant.

Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder arrives in style

Exactly one year ago on March 6th, Lamborghini decided to finally reveal the Huracan Performance at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. This year, the automaker decided to get rid of the coupe’s roof for the same event that is held yearly in Switzerland. The Spyder pretty much has everything you would want in the fixed roof model, but only this model can pull off this type of body style, with the open top.

Even with the company’s same Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA), the soft top Spyder has not been hampered in any way. The reason for the ALA is for it to create the sleekest body possible and consequently boost performance. The droptop Huracan also borrowed the coupe’s revised four-wheel drive system, along with an upgraded suspension and the optimized stability control.

Aside from that, Lamborghini’s engineers gave the droptop a lot of forged carbon fiber bits to cut down a total of 35 kilograms (77 pounds) over the standard Huracan Spyder, while also fiddling with its steering. The model now weighs 1,507 kilograms (3,322 pounds) when dry - distributed 43:57 front/rear. The fabric roof can then be lowered at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour (50 kilometers per hour).

Have you ever thought about how awesome it would be to have a 2018 TVR Griffith Spyder? Well, now it won’t be farfetched. Barely a month after TVR unwrapped the much anticipated Griffith to the public, top-notch restyling service company E. Milano reimagined the classic two seater sports coupe into a more exciting convertible. The revision shows a sleeker exterior design by disregarding the C-pillar and windows from the original model—as you can see from the picture here. Despite the British manufacturer having revealed no plans of coming up with a new Spyder version, for sure, many will find this idea pretty interesting.

TVR, as we know, is an independent British company that makes high end sports car and it was once acclaimed as the third biggest specialized sports car maker in the world. E. Milano on the other hand has been renowned for its tagline---“raising the bar with every car” as the company offers services focusing on custom car body modifications from Italy. According to its website, it is no longer about owning a unique sports car, rather it’s about owning an exotic vehicle that drives and looks differently from all the rest of the exotic cars out there. Well, that proves a good point.

For those who want a little more information about the coupe, the new Griffith is a classic front-engined two seater bearing the British marque’s traditional design while differentiating itself from the usual retro styled models. With respect to its 70-year heritage, however, TVR retains some of the classic details evocative of its glorious past and combines it with the latest designs and technologies. By partnering with Gordon Murray and Cosworth, TVR introduces the new generation of Griffith in the market.

After Mercedes-Benz introduced the Project One, the first street legal car with the Formula 1 powertrain, wouldn’t you wonder what an F1 version of it would look? Well, maybe getting rid of the roof will help.

We do know that F1 drivers drive cars with no roof, not yet at least. So if you are into the current design of the Project One, you will love it as a Spyder.

Now, thanks to E Milano for rendering the Project One for us. Parked on what looks like someone’s garage, the Project One looks like it is ready to hit the race track anytime.

ABT Sportline’s latest project is aimed at the base Audi R8 model, specifically at its 5.2 liter V10 engine that produces 540 horsepower. The aftermarket company’s new power package enables the V10 engine to give out an extra 70 horsepower to its current output. With ABT’s power package, the R8 will be almost as powerful at the Plus trim, but will cost much less.

Though the tuner does not give specific details on how they gave the R8 an additional 70 horsepower apart from “optimizing the motor management”. What we can see is that the ABT Sportline gave the R8 a new set of forged black 19-inch alloy ER-F wheels, which are probably even lighter than the original set. But customers can choose even larger wheels, the 20-inch GR rims as an option.

If the new 610 horsepower engine is good enough for you to handle, you can bring your new R8 home with that. But ABT Sportline is glad to give your R8 more upgrades including a pair of body kits that are named “Street” and “Race”. These body kits come with a range of aero tweaks from the front skirt, the new rear panel and the rear skirt. For an extra powerful ride, ABT Sportline can give you a new stainless steel exhaust system that adds 20 horsepower. If you’re curious, this power upgrade costs €7,386, without installation. But there are a lot more than can be done.

Novitec is often pushing the boundaries in the field of conversion technology. There’s no questioning why Novitec’s N-Largo widebody and performance kits have become incredibly popular among automotive enthusiasts. There’s always room in the industry for more customization after all.

The tuning experts from Germany recently unveiled their newest addition to the lineup, the Novitec N-Largo Lamborghini Huracan Spyder. In its standard form, the N-largo Lamborghini is basically a Huracan Spyder, but it features a supercharged engine and a body that’s wider by 24 centimeters courtesy of Novitec’s N-Largo widebody kit.

Novitec’s modification package is offered to all units under Huracan Spyder’s model range, adding not just to its width but also providing the vehicle with more efficient aerodynamics. In addition, the naturally aspirated V10 engine gets supercharged with a whopping 860hp and 709lb-ft of torque.

The second-gen Audi R8 V10 Spyder first made its debut at last year's New York Auto Show, where it was offered with a 540hp V10, not the 610hp version found in the R8 V10 Plus coupe. Now, what better way to experience summer driving season than enjoying it with the newly revealed fastest series production convertible ever coming from Audi, the R8 Spyder V10 Plus.

Akin to its fixed metal roof predecessor, the soft-top Spyder Plus is armed with Ingolstadt's most potent series-production engine, a naturally aspirated 5.2 L V10 that produces 610hp (449 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Newton-meters) of torque. Made possible due to a boost in power compared to the non-Plus model, the German marque's range topping convertible can zoom from 0-62 mph (0-100 kph), needing only 3.3 seconds, thus it is three tenths of a second faster compared to the non-Plus model. The Spyder R8 Convertible's top speed increased by 6 mph (10 kph) to a superb 204 mph (328 kph).

The upgraded performance not only was made possible by its improved engine, but also due to decreased weight as Audi decided to cut back 55 lbs (25 kg) off the convertible compared to its "lesser" model, producing a dry weight of around 3,498 lbs (1,587 kg). Built at Audi's Bollinger Hofe factory, the super cars are largely handmade so customization choices are likely limitless. The German marque offers an array of 11 colors, but interested consumers are free to choose any color in the visible spectrum, and matte or gloss finishes can also be opted.

You might think that the Lamborghini Huracan Performante Coupe looks impressive. But have you imagined it without a roof? Yes, as a convertible. The fastest car to lap the Nurburging, the Huracan Performante, has been rendered, sans roof - and it looks insanely beautiful.

Just after publishing his rendering of the facelifted Porsche 918 Spyder, Aksyonov Nikita is back at it with the open-top Huracan Performante Spyder he posted on Behance. In the rendering, the car was illustrated without a roof, but even with its cloth top, it will definitely look as gorgeous. Since the roadster has sleek lines, the design naturally blends in with the convertible layout effortlessly.

Though photos and videos of Lamborghini’s Huracan Performante have been taken while it was out on the Nurburging being tested, the prototype is still wrapped in its camouflage, so we still can’t tell how it looks, but it will definitely get a folding soft-top. Just like the coupe, the Performante Spyder will be equipped with a potent 5.2 liter V10 engine that can produce a whopping 630 horsepower (470 kilowatts) and 443 pound-feet (600 Newton-metres) of torque.

A year after Spyker Ltd. unveiled the Spyker C8 Preliator fighter jet-inspired sports car at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, it is now unveiling the roadster version of the radical vehicle at the 2017 edition of the event in Switzerland.

After teasing us with the shadowy silhouette of the new Spyker C8 Preliator Spyder, Spyker is getting ready to prove that open-air drive and ride is as enjoyable as it is thrilling. Just like the Spyker C8 Preliator sports coupe, the C8 Preliator Spyder pays tribute to the company aviation heritage, highlighting aircraft air intakes called NACA ducts.

Part of Spyker’s third-generation of sports cars, the Spyker C8 Preliator Spyder features a NACA duct to reduce drag and even installed small ailerons to the front splitter and side skirts for redirecting the flow of air. The signature V-shaped grille with honeycomb mesh still remains although the sports car’s glass canopy is now gone and is now replaced by an automatic soft top.

Could there be a better version of the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4? Indeed, the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 is a powerful supercar that won’t be easily beaten on the road.

With its 5.2 liter V10 engine providing up to 610 PS (449 kW or 602 hp) of output at 8,2,50 rpm and up to 560 Nm (413 lb.-ft.) of torque available at around 6,500 rpm, the Huracan LP610-4 could sprint from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds and from standstill to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.9 seconds while reaching a top speed of 201 mph (325 km/h). Already incredible, isn’t it?

However, the folks at O.CT Tuning apparently don’t think that the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 is fast and powerful enough. The tuning company probably thinks that the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 can’t deal with the new Lamborghini Aventador S. In fact, the Aventador S would leave the Huracan LP610-4 in the dust during a sprint or in a race.

The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is one of the true beautiful menaces on the road. But it has just has been made more beautiful and more menacing by the people at Vision of Speed (VOS). Not only that, it has created a tuning project that could be considered as the fastest Huracan to date.

One of the main reasons why the Huracan Spyder is a beautiful road menace is that it features whopping power levels -- 610 hp (449 kW) of max output at 8,250 kW and 560 Nm (413 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available at 6,500 rpm. This 5.2-liter V10 V10 engine with Multi Point Injection and Direct Stratified Injection sends power to all wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox LDF (Lamborghini Doppia Frizione).

Riding a hybrid chassis made from aluminum and carbon fiber, the Huracan Spyder features a body made of aluminum and synthetic material. In terms of design, no one can really say that the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is an ugly creation. That fact that Vision of Speed chose the Huracan Spyder as its next tuning project is an evidence of its sporty beauty.

If you are living in the United States and you’re raring to own a 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder, then you should prepare at least $176,350 ($175,100 in retail price plus tax, title, and registration) to have a piece of this splendid roadster from the German premium carmaker.

At this pricing, the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder would be between $20,000 and $30,000 more expensive than a comparable rival -- the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT -- in terms of power. It is also around $10,000 more expensive than the base version of the 2017 Audi R8 V10 coupe. Compared to the previous model, the 2017 Audi R8 Spyder -- at 4,426 mm (14.5 feet) in length and 1,940 mm (6.4 feet) in width -- is around 14 mm (0.6 in) shorter and around 36 mm (1.4 inches) wider than its predecessor. Its height and wheelbase, however, are still the same at 1,244 mm (4.1 feet) and 2,650 mm (8.7 feet), respectively.

The front end of the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder is distinguished by a large yet low-height Audi Singleframe. Its honeycomb radiator grille is connected to the wedge-shaped headlights through sculptural surfaces. As standard, the headlights feature 37 LED units, although laser lighting – as marked by a blue anodized strip -- is offered as an option.

Traffic rules, warnings, signs, and what-nots are all posted, shared and advertised anywhere and everywhere. Even family members and friends constantly remind us to drive safe and to always practice defensive driving. But then there are daredevil wannabes and well, drivers who itch for the accelerator. We’ve all seen how these reckless drivers (and poor, unsuspecting passersby) end up through videos and footages, and it just doesn’t do the trick to scare them off.

One man in Singapore thought it would be cool to show off his driving skills behind his Lamborghini Huracan Spyder. C’mon guys, it’s a freakin’ Lamborghini Huracan Spyder with such monstrous power hidden underneath its hood. However, this man’s mistake was showing off at the wrong place – a public road. Sure, we’d be happy to see how a Huracan Spyder can fair off in a public road, but putting other lives in danger is a big no-no.

The 45-year old was caught squeezing in between a car and a van and traveling at very high speeds. The car had a dashcam which caught the whole incident, the video immediately posted it on Facebook. It took only a split second for the Huracan Spyder to evade possible mishap and danger for both the van and the other car.

Try to imagine a Lamborghini Huracan with no hard roof and drives on rear wheels. If you got tired of imagining, then put your attention to Lamborghini’s newest offering that is set to be unveiled on America’s western coast at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Say hello to the new 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 Spyder, which is essentially a Huracan LP 580-2 sans the hard top, sharing quite a number of elements including a 5.2-liter V10 naturally aspirated engine. It features newly designed front and rear ends as well as a new unique profile that allows the LP 580-2 Spyder to stand out from its coupe sibling. It dons large front air intakes that do not only direct cooling air but also guide headwind to hike down pressure on the front axle.

Providing occupant protection against the elements of nature is a lightweight soft top that could be completely employed or deployed in only 17 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h. Stowage of this soft top has been considered to maintain the Spyder’s center of gravity as well as emphasize the dynamic nature of the vehicle with a downed top. In this configuration, two fins protrude from the folding roof-casing, starting start at the seatbacks and flow on the roof line to the rear.

Many had wished that a Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera would somehow make a surprise debut at the recently held Paris Motor Show. Sadly, not a single Lamborghini appeared anywhere in sight. Much to everyone’s dismay, we are still hoping to see one in the next several months or probably at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. While waiting for this to happen, allow us to share what we just found out.

Though there are no official announcements (yet) regarding the launching of a Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera, we are quite positive that things are likely heading this way. The spy pictures are literally everywhere. Only recently, the Italian automaker has also filed for a trademark in Europe and is probably for the new Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Although the trademark description has not been disclosed, the filing was placed under paper goods, toys, clothing, electronics and vehicles.

What we have at the moment are pictures of the Gallardo Spyder Performante, which we think will look brilliant if Lamborghini will come up with a possible combination of Spyder and Superleggera for the same. If the recently trademarked vehicle will follow Gallardo’s footprint, it would definitely be an awesome combination, don’t you think?

When the tuner launched the DMC Limited Edition LP1088, not a few were mesmerized by its looks and its capabilities. The DMC Limited Edition LP1088 was truly an exotic car, but DMC’s creation should be more outlandish than any of the tuner’s previous works.

We’re introducing the new DMC Huracan Edizione-GT Spyder, which features a full body package designed to make it look extremely yet elegantly fast. More importantly, the new DMC Huracan Edizione-GT Spyder is actually faster than it looks, thanks to a V10 powertrain that develops over 1,000 hp of power output.

Along with the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1, the Porsche 918 Spyder completes the so-called hypercar Holy Trinity. This mid-engine four-wheel drive two-passenger hypercar is powered by a 4.6-liter V8. It can produce a combined power of 887 horsepower and 944 lb.-ft. torque which can shoot the 918 from zero to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. This 7-speed dual-clutch automatic hypercar is also offered with a manual-shifting mode and can produce a top speed of 214 mph.

The 918 Spyder conquered the 12.8-mile lap in just 6 minutes and 57 seconds, 14 seconds faster than the previous Nurburgring record. The Nurburgring Nordschleife is one of the toughest tracks that measure the true potential of a super sports car, and for the 918 Spyder to be able to break records on this track, it must be several degrees of awesome

With this model, Porsche proves that it has definitely upped its game by redefining “performance, efficiency and driving pleasure” as it maximizes driving dynamics while keeping fuel consumption at a minimum. All these good things might have been the reason why a 22-year old man from Salt Lake City decided to get his hands on a 918 Spyder from a Porsche dealership; or maybe not.
