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.
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 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.
With great power come inexplicably large names. The latest special edition Bugatti Veyron is the Black Bess. Belonging to the Bugatti Legends series, the new supercar pays homage to the Type 18 Black Bess. One of the fastest street legal cars of its age, the Type 18 made quite a mark in the pre World War I era.
McLaren brought its brand new supercar to the Geneva Motor Show. The 650S is placed right above the McLaren 12C in the marque’s lineup, and comes in the flavors of a coupe and a spider. The supercar is powered by McLaren’s M838T twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 641 hp. It has a top speed of 204mph, doing a zero to 62mph run in just three seconds. Both versions, the coupe, and the hardtop convertible, will go on sale this spring.
Geneva Motor Show is about to start, which means some of the sexiest cars are getting ready to make an appearance. On the list is the new offering in the form of Koenigsegg One:1. We’d say this is one sweet supercar, however the Swedish marque would like to set aside that label and instead call the One:1 the “world’s first megacar.”
Lamborghini has unveiled the successor to the Gallardo, and it has shown up in the form of Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4. The new supercar has big shoes to fill, considering the Gallardo is the most sold Lamborghini to date. If a simple glance is to go by, the Huracan looks set to work its job.
Artist Philippe Pasqua started off this project with a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. The supercar was first wrapped in cowhide, taking care to cover every nook and crevice of the body, while ensuring the leather followed the curves of the Ferrari as well as it could be. This would in itself be a tricky job, considering the joints, hinges and crevices are not the best friends of a leather coat.
