Earlier in November at the 2017 SEMA Show in Vegas is when Hennessey unwrapped the Venom F5 to all of us. But it was actually first introduced as a concept in 2014. Not much of the car’s interior has been revealed until now. Back then, the images showed only a section of the dashboard that was finished in carbon fiber. This time, more photos of the interior have surfaced online so we could clearly see the vehicle’s steering wheel and its instrument cluster.
The steering wheel looks like it had been covered in carbon fiber and Alcantara, while adopting a three spoke configuration with a flat upper and lower areas. The steering wheel has a number of features, from the turn signals, to radio controls, high beam flash, gear selector, start/stop button, the horn, and one red button that caught our attention.
To be honest, these images still don’t allow us to figure out all the functions. However, the company did say that it will be releasing more images of the Venom F5’s interior very soon.Read the entire article Hennessey reveals the first images with Venom F5 interior
Lamborghini had been expected to refresh its entry-level model – the Lamborghini Huracan – in late 2018 or early 2019. But here is some good news for fans of the Lamborghini Huracan: the new sports car would be updated beyond just a typical refresh.
According to a report by Car and Driver, citing a senior engineer at Lamborghini, the Italian carmaker plans to give the 2019 Huracan a rear-wheel steering capability as well as a higher voltage electrical subsystem. These updates should improve the Huracan’s capabilities for greater levels of on-the-road performance.
The first of the updates involves having the new Lamborghini Huracan adopt a rear-wheel steering system from its larger sibling, the Lamborghini Aventador S. In the Aventador S, this rear-wheel steering system managed to reduce its wide, truck-like footprint to that of smaller sports car.Read the entire article Lamborghini to update the Huracan with rear-wheel steering and 48-volt electrical subsystem
A couple of years ago, it was rumoured that the Pagani Zonda will mark the end of its journey in June 2013 with the new Revolucion. But it seems like these rumours are not very accurate, because we keep seeing a new model every now and then. Case in point, this year alone, we witnessed three new one-offs by Pagani, namely the Fantasma Evo, Riviera, and Horacio’s own HP Barchetta. And apparently, Pagani is not done releasing new models yet because another one has emerged just recently.
So far, we have very few details about it but we do know that the owner is a customer of TopCar Design. If you have not heard of it, it is a Russian tuning company with headquarters in Moscow. One of the very few details we know about the new unnamed Zonda is that it will leave Pagani’s new factory in San Cesario Sul Panaro, Modena in the spring of next year.
Based on what we have heard, we are guessing that it would be an “original car” as opposed to an update of an existing car. So it would not be like a Riviera based on a 2005 Zonda F. Also, when looking at the images, it looks like Pagani’s latest creation had been inspired by the Cinque Roadster and the Tricolore.Read the entire article There is a new Pagani Zonda built for TopCar customer
After numerous teasers that came along with promises of speeds up to 300 miles per hour (482 kilometers per hour), Hennessey finally reveals the highly anticipated and much hyped Venom F5 at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Similar to the outgoing model, the new F5 will put its focus on the same thing, and that is speed. But one thing that makes this one more special is that it was built from the ground up.
Unlike the outgoing model, the F5 has gotten rid of the Lotus chassis, but it is now wrapped around a custom carbon fiber tub instead. Most of its body is finished in the same lightweight material too. As for the design, it has been made to look significantly sleeker compared to its predecessor. And for comparison’s sake, the current Venom GT has a coefficient of 0.44 Cd, while its successor has a drag coefficient of only 0.33Cd. The Bugatti Chiron, on the other hand, has a coefficient of 0.38Cd.
Hennessey made it clear that people should not expect to see a hybrid powertrain with any of their models, and that is because he is a “purist”. He prefers to have simple, but elegant functionality - not that he is trying to belittle or bash hybrids.Read the entire article Hennessey unveils 1,600 hp Venom F5 at 2017 SEMA Show
Day after day, we hear something new about the Lamborghini Aventador. The Italian supercar manufacturer has built a total of 7,000 examples of the said model in the six years that it has been in the market. Aside from being one of the most expensive supercars one can buy today, it definitely is one of the best too, and the company promises to make it even better as technology improves. Lamborghini’s chief commercial officer, Federico Foschini recently confirmed that new and even more special versions of the Aventador will come to the market in the next couple of years.
In an interview with CarAdvice, Foschini said that he loves the Aventador so much that he does not want the nameplate to die. He then said that “the time will have to come”, but he does not specify whether this will be sooner or later. Furthermore, he said something that got a lot of people even more excited. He said that the Aventador will have more surprises for us. Again, he does not specify what these will be. He did joke however that he will be murdered if he leaks the information he has.
Today, the most powerful Lamborghini Aventador that we know of is the Superveloce, and it had already been sold out. Under its hood is a naturally aspired 750 horsepower (552 kilowatts) V12 engine with as much as 508 pound-feet (690 Newton-metres) of torque. This engine works with a seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) transmission distributing power to the wheels. As for the performance, it can quickly do the 60 mile per hour sprint (96 kilometers per hour) in only 2.9 seconds.Read the entire article Future editions of Lamborghini Aventador will keep naturally aspirated V12 but expect surprises
Pagani, the famous Italian supercar maker, recently launched what they call the Pagani Rinascimiento. It is an official restoration program that was made specially to service the automaker’s first few models, such as the Zonda. The program will not only inspect your Zonda, but also restore it to its original condition, just like when it first left the factory. To ensure that all components return to their mint condition, Pagani will observe, examine, and restore each and every one of them, with the combination of art and technology. The Italian automaker also made it clear that during the restoration process, not a piece of bolt or screw will be left out.
While these components are being restored, Pagani will collect things such as images, drawings, and even technical data and these will be documented in a Pagani Rinascimiento Book. Finally, when the work has been done, the book will be handed to the owner, together with the car to certify that it went through the whole process. This will be useful when current owners intend to sell their Zondas in the future.
Horacio Pagani, founder and ideologist of the company, mentioned in the automaker’s official Facebook page that it is a pleasure and a huge responsibility for them to bring these cars back to life. And of course, their customers put their full trust on the company and their expertise to make sure that these cars are brought back to their original state. This is because it’s only this company that can properly rebuild and restore these. Pagani’s goal is for the customers to feel the same as when they first got their car.Read the entire article Pagani Rinascimiento is the restoration program for your old Zonda
We have great news for pro wrestler and actor John Cena fans. He is selling his one-off Lamborghini Gallardo finished in a shade called Verde Scandal. Right now, it comes with an asking price of $147,788.
At the moment, it is at Lamborghini Palm Beach, and they are offering a Carfax Buyback Guarantee of 4,236 miles (6,817 km) on its odometer. This Gallardo is different from the rest of the models because it has a few custom bits too.
It is not just the Verde Scandal paint that makes this vehicle unique. It also has a 6-speed E-Gear transmission, power heated seats, Style and Branding package, transparent engine cover and Cordelia aluminum wheels. These are just what you can see on the outside. When moving into the interior, the seats, door panels and the roof are all wrapped in dual-tone Nero Perseus/Verde Scandal and Q-Citura Rhomboid pattern upholstery.Read the entire article John Cena is selling his one-off Verde Scandal Lamborghini Gallardo
A monster in a sporty elegant outfit, the 2017 Ford GT started rolling off the carmaker’s Multimatic facility in Markham, Ontario in Canada in February this year. There are 250 units bound to be produced annually for four years (total of 1,000). Nevertheless, it’s quite a stunning sight for a new Ford GT to be wrapped in a greenish finish similar to same to that of Lamborghini’s Verde Mantis green wrap.
Of course, it won't take long for a Lamborghini fan or enthusiast to recognize that this greenish shade wrapping on the new 2017 Ford GT is somewhat lifted off from the Lamborhini-exclusive color palette. It could be the same shade, but it could also be just something similar. Some have even opined that this greenish shade on the Ford GT is a neon green glow typically associated with radioactivity. Perhaps, the color of this 2017 Ford GT was inspired by the intense power of radiation, knowing that this all-new supercar packs some dynamic power itself. Whatever the inspiration is of this strange color on this new 2017 Ford GT, only its owner knows.
The debate may rage on of whether the color of this Ford GT is derived from Lamborghini’s palette, but one thing is clear for us, it sure looks good on Ford’s fastest production vehicle on track. This greenish shade attracts attention whether it is being driven or just lurking at a parking lot. Moreover, it sends chills to more than a few onlookers as it exudes power in an eccentric yet effective manner. Whether people like it or not, this color is a choice made by this Ford GT’s owner, who is lucky enough to be one of the 1,000 customers to own this new American supercar.Read the entire article 2017 Ford GT rolls off production site wrapped in Verde Mantis
Many of us know that Hong Kong is one of the most expensive cities in the world, but we don’t often see a lot of supercars in the country, or maybe we just don’t hear about them. Recently, one of just 40 examples of the Lamborghini Centenario had just been spotted in Hong Kong.
As we know, the said model will only have a limited run - that includes 20 coupes and 20 convertibles, where each one starts at $1.9 million. In the past few months, we have seen over 10 examples that have been delivered across the globe. The very first one, finished in a beautiful carbon fiber and blue trimmed bull, was delivered to Lamborghini Newport Beach in California, USA. We also heard about the orange-trimmed Centenario that showed up at H.R. Owen in London.
As mentioned earlier, one of the Centenarios has just landed in Hong Kong. As if being one of 40 is not rare enough, the coupe becomes even more exclusive in its Verde Bronto bright green exterior that has been given a matte finish for a standout look. To make it look more stylish, it had been given some carbon fiber trim, and there are gold carbon fiber accents on the roof, engine cover, side mirrors, rear wing, the lower body and the wheels for some contrast. What’s more is that the gold accenting is scattered through the cabin for added luxury.Read the entire article Hong Kong gets its second Lamborghini Centenario Coupe in Lime Green
In an exclusive speaking engagement with Car Advice during the ongoing 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, Lamborghini’s Maurizio Reggiani hints at introducing what he calls as the new version of a one-off supercar, even adding that this one-off could be completely sold prior to its revelation. This is comparable to the case of Centenario, which they had introduced with rear wheel steering and which was later on adapted into the Aventador S when it came into production. The director for research and development also said that the company is set to announce some new technologies to go with Lamborghini’s new design. The imminent announcement, he said, is what Lamborghini’s loyal patrons have actually been waiting for.
It can be recalled that Lamborghini had done this previously with the Sesto Elemento, the Veneno Roadster, the Concept J as well as for both the Reventon and the Reventon Roadster. As they did with the Centenario, the soon-to-be-revealed one-off will take the lead in introducing Lamborghini’s future design and technologies. Inevitably, it should give us a first look at the Aventador replacement that is due for release in 3 years.
No concrete details have been confirmed during the talks but Car Advice knew that the Lamborghini Urus will be revealed sometime this December. In the same way, it is likely the new one-off (which is currently without a name yet) will be introduced later within the year while the official public debut will probably have to wait until 2018. At the most, we should be expecting Lamborghini’s one-off supercar at next year’s Geneva Motor Show together with the new Urus.Read the entire article Lamborghini to introduce new limited-edition supercar, new techs coming very soon
We have already reached a generation wherein automakers are making the switch from gasoline engine cars to hybrid and all electric vehicles. So far, the trend is for automakers to gradually transition their range to accommodate electric vehicles. That’s why it is significant news when automakers say that they’re not looking into electrifying their models.
While Porsche and Bentley are joining the norm by developing sports cars, it seems like Ferrari and Lamborghini have no plans of doing so, and they have just confirmed it, according to Automotive News. Both Italian automakers do not believe that electrification is the future of supercars, but they do believe that hybrid options are.
At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Michael Leiters, Chief Technology Officer of Ferrari, said in an interview with Automotive News that it will take a lot more time, effort and innovation to get the same performance, and more importantly the driving pleasure of what we have today with the non-electrified models. It will not be that easy to replicate the performance and ease that we have now.Read the entire article Ferrari and Lamborghini still not keen on producing electric sports cars
Guests at the luxurious Salon Privé supercar exhibit witnessed the return of legendary manufacturer Automobili Turismo e Sport as it holds the ATS GT’s official premiere last Thursday, August 31st. Presented at the event is the limited-run Italian supercar that drew inspiration from the first ATS 2500 GT of the early 60s. Carrying a $1.15 million price tag with only 12 units to be built, the new ATS GT Launch Edition is the company’s first production after being out in the limelight for more than fifty years.
ATS, or Automobili Turismo e Sport was first established in 1961 by Giotto Bizzarrini and Carlo Chiti together with some prominent members of the Scuderia Ferrari team. As former team members, its initial motivation was to beat Ferrari both when it comes to building track ready and road-going sports cars. Unfortunately, the stint only lasted for about two years and the company eventually gave up after releasing the ATS 2500 GT in 1963.
Moving on, the fabled company makes a pleasant comeback with the new ATS GT. Designed by ATS’ chief designer Emanuele Bomboi, each handmade GT supercar will be employing the most highly advanced lightweight engineering with materials consisting mostly of carbon fiber. Its design inspiration, the ATS 2500 GT, was a small coupe developed by co-founders Bizzarrini and Chiti and was built by Allemano according to the instructions of its designer, Franco Scaglione some fifty years ago.Read the entire article Automobili Turismo e Sport introduces the new ATS GT at Salon Privé
Whenever a Pagani Huayra BC gets delivered to a new owner in any place in the world, it does get some sort of attention. After all, the Pagani Huayra BC isn’t an ordinary car, and its owners aren’t ordinary as well. In the United States alone, the Pagani Huayra BC is quickly proving that it is a hypercar that is a must-have for the extra-rich. Proof of that is the recent delivery of a Pagani Huayra in the US soil.
This example was brought to the US -- particularly in Miami, Florida – by Prestige Imports. Just like the previous examples of the Pagani Huayra BC that were delivered, the looks of this unit were customized according to the taste and preferences of its new owner. However, unlike previous examples that we have seen, this Pagani Huayra BC is wrapped in traditional gloss black carbon, rather than the colored carbon fiber that has been the preference lately.
This black finish is accentuated by bright yellow pinstripes that can be found throughout the new Huayra BC, from the front end, on the bonnet, around the headlights, on all four wheels, on the brake calipers and the flanks as well as around the side windows, on its gullwing doors, on the rear end and on the massive rear spoiler.Read the entire article New Pagani Huayra BC lands in Miami wrapped in glossy black carbon with yellow accents
Over a decade ago, Pagani took the Zonda to the Geneva Motor Show. The Zonda hypercar was then set to retire in 2013 together with the track-focused Revolucion. But here is the thing, customers still wanted to keep the AMG-powered hypercar alive even after Huayra’s launch. Pagani had to listen to what the customers asked for and decided to keep it alive so it released a number of one-offs instead.
This year’s Zonda is nothing like the past models that we have seen. Firstly, it is not going to be delivered to any customer since Horacio Pagani, the company boss himself commissioned this model - dubbed the HP Barchetta. This Zonda has a low and narrow windscreen that leads to a more unique design. Dressed in a shiny blue paint, what makes this even more special is the fact that the rear wheels are partially covered with a black mesh, which was borrowed from the Zozo special edition.
The cabin gets a cream interior accented with black carbon fiber details as well as a tartan pattern. It comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, with body hugging sport seats like the Huayra BC, making it one of the most beautiful Zondas made in history.Read the entire article Zonda HP Barchetta is specially made for Horacio Pagani
We have just witnessed the sale of the most expensive McLaren F1 to date. Over the weekend, at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours in Monterey, the Bonham auction took place. And the first ever 1995 McLaren F1 that had been imported to the United States had been put up for auction, and was brought home by its new owner, who offered $14.2 million for it. This price does not yet include ten percent buyer’s fee, which means that it was sold off for a grand total of $15.62 million.
The car is looking good as new, and was offered by its original owner. Under the hood is the 6.1 liter V12 that it originally came with, paired with a six-speed manual transmission. This enables the F1 to yield 627 horsepower (467 kilowatts) that can sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in only 3.2 seconds, before continuing to its max speed of 242.9 miles per hour (391 kilometers per hour).
Looking at it from the outside, it is dressed in a matte silver finish. While the inside cabin is finished in black and grey Connolly leather. As I have mentioned earlier, this example is almost as good as new with only 9,600 miles (15,449 kilometers) on its odometer since it got out of the factory. The only thing is that the fuel cell had been replaced twice already and it has gone through some minor wear and tear.Read the entire article Bonham auction has sold off first U.S. McLaren F1 for $15.62 million
Famous designer of certain Ferrari vehicles like the Enzo Ferrari and the P4/5, Ken Okuyama has revealed another one of his designs at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours over the weekend. You might have remembered the Kode57 Enji that was previewed last year, this one is a Kode 0 that is somewhat similar to the former.
Having said that, by looking at the Kode 0, you will see several design cues that were taken from Lamborghini. Particularly, these are designs by Marcello Gandini. The guy is best known for designing certain models including the Lamborghini Countach, Lambo Miura, and also the Lancia Stratos Zero, and many others.
The Kode 0 has a base like the Lamborghini Aventador, with its "one motion" design. It had been given a set of 20- and 21-inch wheels wearing Pirelli P-Zero tires, plus a more aggressive front splitter and LED headlights up front, while the rear end of the car is a triangular shaped exhaust complemented by a large rear diffuser.Read the entire article Ken Okuyama unveils his custom Kode 0 Supercar at Pebble Beach
The 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is a very rare supercar. After all, while three examples were planned for this supercar model, only two examples were realized. Just recently, this rare Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita was sold in an auction supervised by Mecum Auctions. With an auction estimate of between $2.7 million and $3 million, Mecum Auctions was able to sell this rare supercar for $2.6 million.
Interestingly, the original owner of this rare supercar was no other than Floyd Mayweather, who is considered as one of the greatest in the sport of boxing. His love of the sports has allowed him to earn hundreds of millions of dollars. For those who don’t know Mayweather aside from him being a first-class professional boxer, the undefeated sportsman also has another love – cars. With hundreds of millions of dollars at his disposal, it is fairly easy for Mayweather to purchase exotic cars like those built Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce and Bugatti as well as a Koenigsegg.
Mayweather used to own this very rare supercar – the 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. It cost him around $4.8 million to buy this supercar back then, making it ridiculously pricey and exotic. This price is fairly logical, considering the exclusiveness, level of craftsmanship, technology and design that went into the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita.Read the entire article Floyd Mayweather’s Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita sells in auction for $2.6 million
According to James Edition, the seller based in Esloo Netherlands, the limited edition Ferrari’s current mileage is at 118 km (73mi) and it also features the Ferrari 458 Speciale’s 600PS (447kW) naturally aspirated V8 engine. Then why is it more special? Read on.
The limited edition Ferrari was initially developed into a concept car as a tribute to Sergio Pininfarina, a renowned designer from Turin, Italy, who passed away in 2012. A year after the prototype’s premiere, Ferrari has put the car into production with only six examples in total, which also falls in line with Pininfarina’s 85th anniversary. All six roadsters were completely sold out following its launch at the Geneva Motor Show in 2015 with a sticker price of $3 million each.
Fast forward, one of the six bespoke Ferrari Sergio roadsters is now up for sale in the Netherlands with a listed price of a cool €4.3 million. That’s about $5,043,900 after the current exchange rates or $2 million more expensive than it was a couple of years ago. Sergio Pininfarina after all was called the “godfather of automotive design” and has always been associated with Ferrari. He has also designed cars for Fiat, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and was a board member of Ferrari for a number of years.Read the entire article This rare Ferrari Sergio could be yours for $5.06 million
Ferraris usually come in their most popular shade of red. This is because in the past, vintage race cars would be painted in the colour of their country, and red represented Italy.
Now, most people who get a Ferrari opt for the red exterior paint too. But then, there are so many other cool colours out there to make your Ferrari stand out even more. Check some of these out.Read the entire article Top 5 paint colors for a Ferrari sports car
Ferrari has recently launched the New Power15 extended warranty program. The company developed this program in response to the notion that supercars are very expensive to maintain. Truth be told, it’s this impression that has dissuaded many car enthusiasts from taking the plunge into the uber-luxurious car club.
So with the new warranty program, the company’s coverage will include their new and old customers’ mechanical components up to 15 years. These major mechanical components include the engine, gearbox, suspension, power transfer unit, and steering. But the best thing about the New Power 15 is that this privilege can be transferred from the original owner to the new owners of the car, if it is a second-hand model. Furthermore, this applies to pre-owned Ferraris that go through “specific technical checks” and pass the test. So far, this is probably the best deal we’ve heard from any automaker. It’s also the longest warranty you could get from any brand out there.
That is not all. To make it clear, this sits on top of Ferrari’s existing four-year bumper-to-bumper warranty along with the seven-year maintenance-free program that new Ferrari customers get. Moreover, customers can purchase an additional year of full coverage, that can be added to the New Power that only begins on the sixth year. If you plan to keep your Ferrari maintained for more decades, you can extend this warranty yearly.Read the entire article Ferrari pampers its customers with 15-year warranty and transferable coverage
