McLaren Senna just got an upgrade option that makes it look absolutely stunning. The hypercar gets a whole new build with carbon fiber, and takes its sweet time dressing up. The carbon fiber build takes about a 1000 hours to produce, that nice solar detailing takes about 250 hours. So yeah, it’s not just some quick paintjob to cook up a new look.
Nissan has its heart set on tackling the snow, with the all new 370Zki Roadster concept (pronounced unsurprisingly as 370 Ski). Built off the stock 370Z, the ‘roadster’ still got its powerful 332 hp engine. Of course, it requires more work than stripping out wheels and slapping on skis. Nissan partnered with American Track Truck to get this rear-wheel powered snowmobile ready for show.
Singapore-based Vanda Electrics is trying to make a name for itself, and its parent company Wong Fong Engineering in the automobile space. Vanda is still in its nascent stages, though it is quite ambitious as displayed by the Vanda Dendrobium electric supercar it showed at the Geneva Motor Show.
Photographer John Platt has uploaded photographs of a selection of cars, trucks, and bikes used in Mad Max: Fury Road. The images were captured over three weeks, prior to the shooting of the film.
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.
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!
