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.
Eye candy comes well suited when presented in the form of automobile design goodness. Ferrari CascoRosso is an independent design concept by Macedonian designer Dejan Hristov. The name itself is Italian for “red helmet” while the design is homage to the Ferrari 250 GTO, which will celebrate 50 years of its existence in 2014. While the Ferrari 250 GTO obviously influences the concept, the designer also envisions it as a successor to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, allowing the concept to fuse the past, present and future.
There is always time to watch something like the Ferrari Enzo drift in slow motion.
There are plenty of things we expect from the future. Hot cars is one of those things, and things not having ridiculous names is another. Mercedes Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept works very well with the former, but totally fails on the latter. Apparently, there is no having the cake and eating it too. The concept has a decidedly muscular and futuristic look, all packed in a boatload of curvy lines.
Adding company to the Veneno Supercar, Lamborghini has given it a sibling in the form of the Veneno Roadster. Endowed with the same aggressive looks, this one is a mighty beast as well. Power comes from a 750 hp 6.5-liter V12 that takes the roadster from zero to 60mph in just 2.9 seconds, and allows it to go all the way to the top speed of 221 mph. Priced at $4.5 million, the roadster is an extremely limited edition with only nine cars being made.
