After all, the designated letters and numbers like the 275GTB/4 for example can be a tad confusing to some. To explain the meaning of its names, we have gathered a simple guideline as to how these names were made.

Ken Block drives a pre-production Ford GT at Le Mans

You would expect a lot of news about the 24 Hours Le Mans just after the event finishes. But this time, we are not going to talk about the results. Instead, we are going to talk about how Ken Block took the Ford GT out for a spin just before all the racers hit the track.

Though the Ford GT was not able to repeat its class win at last year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, the team still managed to score a second place finish for one of the entries driving a Ford GT. Before the 24-hour long event began, Ken Block took the road-going GT around the Circuit de la Sarthe for some fun.

Block posted on Facebook that “It was a pretty amazing experience to be able to drive this circuit in the GT and have the whole thing to myself”, suggesting that he was on the track by himself, driving the pre-production example of the GT. This was also Block’s first trip to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Rarely used Aston Martin One-77 Q-Series is looking for a new owner

Alain Class Motors, the world’s most exclusive automobile showroom, has recently posted a rarely used Aston Martin One-77 Q-Series. As listed through its website at alainclass.com, the 2011 Aston Martin One-77 has a current mleage of 992km and is featuring a combination of red and black interior, a grey exterior body paint and a V12 engine. Dubbed as one out of seven cars in the world by the website, the Q Series is among the limited units produced within the limited run One-77 models. In other words, the Q-Series is a more exclusive line within Aston Martin's special edition range.

For one, the Q stands for the British marque’s bespoke division which is known for developing the blue “Aston Martin DB11 by Q” seen at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. In all, there are four different liveries available for the One-77 Q Series and one of them is the metallic grey we have in the picture. The interior finish on the other hand has plenty of naked carbon fiber that blends seamlessly throughout the interior’s red lining. Not to mention, it looks good as new considering the odometer reading is at only 616 miles (or 992 kilometers).

Like those on the One-77 limited car range, the Q Series comes with the standard 700hp (522kW) and 553lb-ft (750Nm) naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V12 engine. All that power is pushed to the rear wheels through a 6-speed automated manual gearbox, allowing the car to sprint from a zero to 62 miles per hour in less than 3.7 seconds before topping off at 354kph (220mph).

You can own this McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO specifications for less than $500,000

Having a full list of MSO options is certainly one of the modern miracles in the world of after-market tuning. That said, there’s a McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO upgrades currently on sale at McLaren Scottsdale. For $487,572, the 675LT Spider features Mercedes Benz’s Flintgrau Metallic paint with MSO’s front splitter, rear diffuser, rear bumper, hood and side skirts all made with carbon fiber. In addition, the airbrakes, roof and hood have been painted off with a pair of racing stripes in Cerberus Pearl.

With this many MSO options, the one listed here may not even be the highest priced McLaren 675LT but it surely is one of a kind. We say this because a whole other range of MSO upgrades could be seen throughout the exterior. For example, there’s a new set of wheels in bronze with brake calipers in signature McLaren Orange. It also boasts a satin blue carbon fiber paddle shifts and a 24 carat gold heat shield throughout the exhausts.

Inside, the MSO specced 675LT Spider comes with a unique combination of carbon black leather and Alcantra fabric with a touch of Midnight Blue to highlight the accents. To create a connection with the exterior motif, the seat belts feature the same McLaren Orange just as the one painted on the brake calipers. All in, this entire set would typically cost you more than $90,000, which we think isn’t bad for a car bearing the Speedy Kiwi “swoosh” logo to start with.

Audi’s all-electric supercar, the R8 e-tron, had been discontinued last October after being in the market for under two years. The electric vehicle was then exclusive to the European market and was being sold for a base price of €1 million ($1.1 million). Yup, a million for an electric car. Price may be the primary reason why only less than 100 examples were delivered, according to the automaker. But I’m guessing perhaps it was too early for its time back then, we will never know.

Peter Mertens, former Volvo R&D boss and the new head of development at Audi, recently hinted that the R8 e-tron may have a successor sooner than we expected, as he spoke to Car and Driver magazine. He stated that he is willing to fill the gap that the R8 e-tron created.

During the 2017 Formula E race held in Berlin, he told journalists “You can very well imagine that at some point we will have an electric supercar”. He was probably referring to the said model when he said that. He even stated that he would develop it sooner and that it is already part of his plan. Though he did not share any more details, he assured the journalists that a brand like Audi will definitely come up with a supercar to make things more interesting, and “it is a segment in which we have been playing, we have been a very serious player”.

A new Pagani Huayra BC has just arrived in the United States and its delivery was taken by a rich client who goes on Instagram as “Sparky18888.” The new owner of this particular Huayra BC is definitely a fan of Pagani, as he already has a similarly named Huayra (The King) in his garage.

Sparky18888 – who described himself as an owner of various exotic cars – christened his new Pagani Huayra BC as “Kingtasma.” This nickname was purely evident on the gold crowns under each of the aero flaps located on the rear end of the Huayra BC. Its regal stature was also evidenced by the fact that this hypercar from Pagani features a large part of its body wrapped in red carbon fiber. This elegantly dynamic finish is further accentuated by red pinstripes on the side skirts and on the engine bay as well as around the cabin.

Other distinctive elements found on The King of Sparky18888 are the three colors of the Italian flag “Il Tricolore” (green, white and read) and a host of carbon fiber-clad parts. The Huayra BC badge at the rear end of Kingtasma is finished in red.

Enthusiasts know that in the automotive world, beauty (and power) always comes with a price – a very big price, at that. The Lamborghini Centenario is an example. Considering its beauty and power, the Centenario has a right for an expensive price tag. It gets more expensive when you factor in its exclusivity as only 40 examples will be available worldwide. Twenty units of this exclusive hypercar come as coupes, while the other twenty are convertibles. Come to think of it, with its price and a limited number of units available [worldwide], it will be quite rare to spot any one of these in just any ordinary neighborhood.

Last May, we’ve learned of the whereabouts of one Centenario, which is apparently flaunting its stunning bare carbon fiber exterior featuring blue accents in California – and our first time to spot the car not in is usual carbon fiber and yellow finish. Now, just a few weeks from this first sighting, two more examples have been spotted in the stateside. Photos of the said vehicles have already circulated online, leaving us jaw-slacked by its beauty.

The first of the latest two examples comes in Nuovo Giallo Orion yellow finish with carbon fiber accents – yet again, forgoing its usual carbon fiber body. The said majestic creation landed into U.S. soil just a few months after the first sighting, and it was delivered fresh to Lamborghini Beverly Hills to await its owner.

A few months ago, Lamborghini introduced the Centenario supercar. Since then, only eight units of the model were brought out by the company. And if you remember, we’ve already seen three of those examples: where the first one wore a combination of orange and black finish, the second one wearing a classic yellow and carbon fiber finish, and the third had a carbon fiber body though Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program, finished with blue accents - this one was a U.S. example.

This supercar, based on the Aventador, has been eagerly anticipated. To make everybody aware, the Centenario celebrates Lamborghini founder, Ferriccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday. Having only 40 models built worldwide, 20 of those will be coupes, and the other 20 will be roadsters.

Each and every unit of the Centenario does have its own character, but we would say that the eighth one is the most unique of them all. Leading luxury dealer group, H.R. Owen has welcomed the supercar at its most famous Lamborghini London dealership on Saturday 27 May. What makes this Centenario unique from its other counterparts is that it wears a bare carbon fiber exterior combined with orange accents all over the body. This is currently the only example with this exclusive finish, and is the first of its kind in the U.K., making it a truly unique piece.

If the Ferrari 250 GTO has lived on to this, this is how it might have looked like, thanks to renderings by Ukrainian computer graphic artists Sergiy Dvornytskyy, as posted in the Behance Web site.

Definitely, there are cars or nameplates that managed to survive decades of competition by continuously evolving itself as technologies and car-making techniques make their advances. For instance, the Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Corvette and the Fiat 500 – all still exist bearing modern technologies and design. However, these vehicles are remarkably identifiable with their predecessors, thanks to certain design cues that were able to pass the test of time.

Here comes the Ferrari 250 GTO. Unlike all the nameplates mentioned, the Ferrari failed to live to this day. In fact, the last example of the Ferrari 250 GTO was built in 1964 or after two years since its production started (1962). This means that its design and technologies never got the chance to undergo dramatic revolutions or evolutions. Ferrari only built 39 examples of the 250 GTOs between 1962 and 1964. These 39 examples include 33 cars with Series I (1962 to 1963) bodywork; three units with Series II (1964) bodywork similar to that of the Ferrari 250 LM; and three "330 GTO" versions powered by a larger engine.

The Italian sports car Lamborghini revealed the first ever magnificent Centenario around the year 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show. And even though the Lamborghini Aventador SV and Centenario have a brooding similarity when it comes to performance, the Centenario was pretty much still a hit to loyal Lamborghini fans and car enthusiasts worldwide. Now a Lamborghini Centenario has arrived in the U.S., particularly at Newport Beach located in Costa Mesa, California. While it is the first ever Centenario to step on American land, it won’t be the last.

Largely based on the Lamborghini Aventador SV, the dashing Centenario utilizes the same 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 that will produce around 759hP (565 kW) and pure 508 lb-ft (688 Newton Meters) of torque, allowing the sports car to reach around 60 miles per hour (96 km per hours) needing only 2.8 seconds to do the job. Nevertheless, the top speed of the Centenario is limited to around 217 mph (349 kmh). The said horsepower is only 20hp more powerful than its predecessor, but the Centenario is considered a tad lighter due to its carbon fiber body. The Centenario weighs at an estimated 3,350 lbs (1,519 kg).

The Italian automaker claimed that performance-wise, the Centenario is more dominant compared to SV but not on a large scale. Only 40 units of the Lamborghini Centenario worth around $1.9 million each will be manufactured and sold globally. Specifically, there will be 20 coupes and 20 convertibles produced to celebrate the 100th birthday of founder Ferrucio Lamborghini, who was born on April 28, 1916. The swanky sports car that was delivered in the US flaunted its awesome bare carbon fiber exterior paired with blue accents to contrast its dark paint.

Swiss firm Classic Factory just revealed the Elextra Electric, and it is nothing short of amazing. The Swiss supercar promises to be the fastest accelerating car ever produced. Designed in Switzerland and built in Germany, the four-door electric supercar truly stands out from other EVs out there.

Though the Elextra looks somewhat like a Lamborghini Aventador, the company does not see the Italian super car manufacturer as its main competitor. Instead, the Swiss sporty EV sees Tesla as its fiercest rival.

What makes this supercar different from most supercars out there is the fact that it features four doors and four seats. At the same time, it features and an all-wheel-drive system, through the electric motors positioned at each axle.

Tuner Prior Design revealed that for the McLaren 570S, it will be offering an aerodynamics kit in full carbon. Since the kit will come with a set of custom dual-spoke wheels, the tuner is also including a customized H&R suspension.

Through the PD1 aerodynamics kit, the McLaren 570S is able to get a more aggressive appearance. This is due to a combination of the side air intakes placed on the bumper in the front, side skirts with wings, side blades, fender attachments, roof scoop, and the diffuser and wing in the rear.

Tuner Prior Design revealed as well that for the interior, it will be offering an exclusive design but this is only available on request. Still, the tuner said it will go all out not only when it comes to the customization of the color but even for the materials.

Seven Car Lounge has released its very own bespoke version of the McLaren 675LT. Located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this dealership is known for its exotic and rare models. For this version, the company used a royal blue shade on the exterior of this supercar and then put in a yellow racing stripe having white borders as contrast.

Other features of this customized version include the use of carbon fiber on the bumper in the front, the front splitter, and the wing mirrors. Carbon fiber also dominates the rear section. On the inside, the leather comfort seats are pretty clear. There are also various carbon accents as well as blue stitching. Additionally, the paddle shifter comes in black.

The blue, yellow, and white theme brings to mind the models owned by celebrated Instagrammer Azzurrodino. In particular, Azzurrodino has Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, Ferrari F40, and a LaFerrari, all having the same theme.

It looks so divine in colour white and it doesn’t mind hitting the tracks even if it gets dirty. Okay, so all Lamborghinis are hot but this one’s hotter than anything you’ve likely ever seen. The one-off Lamborghini Diablo GTR #022 also happens to be among company's SuperTrophy Series. SuperTrophy is much like today’s Super Trofeo range which is basically the lighter version of the ultra-cool road going supercars by Lamborghini. The rest of the features have been specified for racing; that’s why this Diablo GTR came with a race-bred V12 engine and is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission from the very beginning.

Surprisingly, the seller posted the vehicle at the Formula Automobile website without naming the price. As a brand new Diablo GTR would cost around $310,000, this used one still won’t come cheap.

For sale is the beast at number 22, which packs an incredibly powerful 590hp (440kW) with a torque of 472lb-ft (640Nm). With only thirty examples, it isn't anymore surprising why this Lamborghini counts as among the rarest breed of bulls from Sant'Agata.

Remember that Lamborghini Huracan that was being sold for five dollars? Yup, the one that caught a lot of people’s attention. First, because it was so affordable; and second, because it was burned down to ashes and was still up for grabs.

Well, now we have another one with a similar case. But this time, it costs much more. But still affordable, just imagine buying a brand new entry-level Toyota, but you’ll get a Lamborghini Murcielago instead. But you’re probably thinking now that there’s a catch to this price drop.

What’s the first thing that comes into mind when you see an eBay seller whose username is “lamborghinidismantler”? Ok, you’re probably thinking he’s selling bits and pieces, or Lambo car parts. Well, he is selling parts that originate from Sant’Agata Bolognese, but besides that, he is also selling an original frame of a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe. But if you go and check out the listing, it doesn’t look like it is in its best condition. Yup, the item looks like it has been torched down, though it definitely is in a better condition compared to the $5 Huracan. At least this one has still got its shape.

Sesto Elemento isn’t your ordinary Lamborghini supercar. After all, the Sesto Elemento is considered as one of the most expensive Lamborghini ever sold. Likewise, it is a very exclusive model, with only 20 track-focused examples were built, all of which were sold out. Thus, when such a car appears on the used-vehicles market, expect wealthy collectors to line up just to get a Sesto Elemento.

Fortunately, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is being sold in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. According to Knight International, this Lamborghini is the only delivery mileage Sesto Elemento currently available. The supercar’s odometer shows that this Sesto Elemento has only been driven for around 198 miles – which are all delivery mileage. This Sesto Elemento has only changed hands two times, and neither of its two owners – as claimed by the dealer – have taken it for a drive. This means that the 198 miles on its odometer is practically the distance that this Sesto Elemento has traveled to be delivered to its new owner. What a waste if the owners of this Sesto Elemento have never experienced how powerful this supercar is.

This left-hand drive Lamborghini Sesto Elemento on the topic was built in 2011. It features a grey exterior and a red interior. Knight International will provide this supercar’s VIN, original invoice and documents under pre-sale agreement. For those who wanted to get a closer look at this Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, they could do so as it is now available for inspection.

It’s pretty neat if you possess something of an extraordinary breed like, say, the Pagani Huayra. There are after all just a total of 100 units ever been built by the exotic car manufacturer. As with every new Pagani supercar, each client can collaborate with the team to help create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece -- where science meets art. Out of the 100 examples however, there are actually two right-hand-drive Huayra’s that came out as part of their deal with Mercedes-AMG— the company that supplied its engine.

For those who have been wondering what happened to the two RHD Huayras, well, a UK dealer has recently listed the exclusive supercar for the price of $2,360,410 (that’s equivalent to £1,849,990 in the UK). On the listing, the dealer said the car comes in the same factory color (Dubai Red) with exposed carbon fiber and glossy top coat protective film. The set of wheels on the other hand is specified to come in silver finish.

Elsewhere, the Dubai Red Pagani Huayra is fitted with black leather for most of its interior finishing. For contrast, the dark surface feature aluminum trims, naked carbon fiber accessories and red stitching to match the black leather upholstery.

Xabier Albizu, a Spanish product and transportation artist, recently did a rendering of the Experimental Tesla Model EXP supercar. The third party design work looks quite sexy and has been the talk of the town recently. Albizu initially posted the first image of his rendering on March 6 on his Behance account.

As a third party designer, Albizu had all the time to make these renderings. His works show that the Tesla Model EXP is a high performance supercar with four electric motors (and independent torque vectoring), each one powering its own wheel, thus making it a four-wheel drive . But is controllable depending on the driver’s needs in that power delivery can be adjusted independently -for crazy handling and acceleration.

The high performance Tesla rendering has smart aerodynamics. With a flat bottom and the huge diffuser, there is an increase in downforce without sacrificing the drag. The rear end of the vehicle has an open design that extracts hot air from different components, and prevents it from overheating. But this design isn’t only functional. He designed this to give it a more aggressive and extreme look.

Getting to own a Pagani, as we already know, is not a commonplace thing. However, the Pagani Huayra Benny Caiola (BC), by far, is the finest model in its history. It’s partly because it’s the first to ever come out with a series of advanced technologies that no other Pagani owners have seen before. In fact, the new features on the Huayra BC have yet to become available in Pagani’s future supercar lineups.

Under the hood, the Huayra BC comes with a 750hp and 737lb-ft of torque twin-turbo V12 engine, which was exclusively made for the Italian marque courtesy of Mercedes-AMG. Based on the specs, this V12 engine is paired to a 7-speed AMT (or Automated Manual Transmission). According to Pagani, the latest electronic active differential along with the new gearbox on the Benny Caiola is almost 40% lighter than the current Huayra’s dual clutch transmission.

With the Geneva Motor Show happening at the moment, there are other exciting things that’s been going on Instagram. Apparently, an outlandish green and orange Pagani Huayra BC has lately been delivered to its wealthy owner.

What’s the lowest price you can get a Lamborghini for? Whatever your guess is, we’re sure that it won’t be anywhere near $5. So then, that makes you ask – What’s the catch? It’s quite a serious one.

Owning a supercar not only means a one-time big time paycheck, you’ve got more responsibilities than that. And to be more specific, that means having to spend a lot more money on maintenance and repairs.

This one right here is a total outlier. And yes, of course there is a good reason as to why it is only $5. But before I reveal to you the reason, any takers? Sorry, but nope, it’s not a discount coupon or anything. This Lamborghini Huracan is not functioning anymore, and I doubt that even the repair shop can help you out with this - because it’s already in ashes. And I mean that this car has been burned to a crisp. In fact, the Huracan is so damaged that you can’t even recognize it anymore. But who knows, someone’s trash may be a treasure to another person, or even an art piece.
