Ferrari 812 Superfast is the most powerful production car Ferrari has ever built. Its stance, its looks, its speed, its power, its dumb name – all scream Ferrari. The 812 Superfast is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine pushing out 800hp that takes the car from 0 to 60mph in 2.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 211 mph.
Much like James Bond, the cars he drives (or drove) can be quite memorable. A very memorable car is the Lotus Esprit S1, which 007 drove in The Spy Who Loved Me. Apart from its good looks, the car’s submersible skill won quite a few hearts and fired up imagination of the viewers. Bond has since moved to other cars, Lotus apparently, has not – and it does want you to remember it once made a very iconic Bond car, Dammit.
The Renaissance masters have inspired people for centuries, so it’s only natural that artists and creatives would want to build on the work of the masters – or pay homage. Photographer Freddy Fabris wanted to pay homage to the great Renaissance masters, which was a tough job considering the challenges of translating the paintings through photography.
Tesla is pretty much the king in the world of all-electric cars that offer a killer performance. It’s only natural that the reigning monarch be challenged, and Porsche apparently intends to do that with the Mission E Concept.
Aston Martin has unveiled its brand new Vulcan supercar at the Geneva Motor Show. Now that is not just a regular car, it is a thoroughbred packed with top of the line automobile technology that probably well qualifies to demand your allegiance. Aston is going to build only 24 units of this car, each priced in the range of $2.3 million.
Trion, and by association, the Trion Nemesis are both new names in the supercar game. And as things stand, they might as well be here for the long haul. I say that because I’m smitten with its good looks and excellent form. Top of the line model Nemesis N1-RR comes with a humongous 9.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine that has 2000 horses at its command. This motor will be mated to an 8-speed sequential transmission. Working together, the arrangement promises a zero to 60 mph time of 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 290 mph.
Grab a cola, sit back, relax, and watch Ken Block pull off amazing stunts in Gymkhana 7. The unbelievably skilled driver of Hoonigan Racing teamed up with Need for Speed and Ford for this video that for a fair part plays out in the streets of LA. That brings us to the second amazing factor of the video. No cars on the roads of Los Angeles? They must have time traveled to a post-apocalyptic world!
It is entirely possible that no one ever imagined reading something like that. A bicycle smoking a Ferrari? That’s probably an indication that the four horsemen of the apocalypse are in town. Thankfully for sanity, we know that the bike is powered by a rocket engine, which explains why the poor Ferrari 430 Scuderia is left bellowing in the dust from the get-go.
The video was captured on November 7, 2014, where François Gissy reached a top speed of 207mph (333 km/h) at the famous Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, France.
The Mazda MX-5 just got itself a facelift, and a little upgrade while it was at it. Mazda recently unveiled the fourth generation MX-5, which will be available in 2015. The car has received some dynamic restyling and upgrade.
The Ferrari F80 Supercar is an independent concept from designer Adriano Raeli. The sweet looking car with an aggressive stance speaks power, and the designer made sure that power did show up in the supercar. Raeli envisions power for the concept car coming from a hybrid drivetrain working with a KERS system and combustion engine.
