The DBC Supercar is an independent concept for Aston Martin by Azerbaijan based designer Samir Sadikhov. The designer has experience at Lamborghini and won an award at the international Ferrari World Design Contest. For the DBC, the designer has kept along certain design elements well known for Aston Martin, especially the grille and parts of the rear, while much of the looks get painted with quite a generous brush that does not blindly follow the way of the famed Aston Martin. Hit ahead for the image gallery.

Transformers movies are all about cars, explosions, giant robots and sometimes, there’s even a plot thrown in! Well, you can’t ask for more than that. Bumblebee being one of the important characters of the movie, surely does deserve all the attention he gets.

Posing like the hot piece that it is, McLaren MP4-12C of creative director Thomas Moeller and photographer Benedict Redgrove. The occasion was the launch of the new McLaren website that gave the creatives access to the car for a few days. Plus, the car poses for the camera like a pro.
Earlier this year, Lamborghini showed its willingness to depart from conventional car design with the Veneno. Now, it apparently wants to cement the idea with the Egoista. This one though, is a one-off concept made to celebrate 50 years of the marque. The single seater supercar has a silver body with orange rims and accents, plus really sharp and pronounced curves and cuts that are intended to give it a look and feel similar to its inspiration, airplanes and jets.
Lamborghini Aventador is an awesome car, and it is usually a good idea not to mess with the looks of something so beautiful. That wisdom went amiss on a company called Cars for Starts who have unveiled what is thankfully just a concept for a Lamborghini Aventador limousine. It might be a concept, but they do very well intend to make it real. The company is offering 12 months of free advertising to anyone who sponsors the project, plus a representation in naming the Lambo Limo.
Presented at the Geneva Motor Show, the Pininfarina Sergio concept takes its name from veteran designer Sergio Pininfarina, to whom many iconic Ferrari’s owe their looks. The concept is a homage to the vision of the remarkable designer who passed away in July last year.
Ferrari’s offering for the Geneva Motor Show this year is the very potent LaFerrari. They call it a successor to the venerable Enzo and to put it in the same class and category, the LaFerrari’s carbon fiber covered body holds a 6.3-liter V12 engine that rolls out a massive 789hp. But hey, the heading right there says there’s 950 horses in there, well, that’s because there’s an electric motor involved in the action that pumps out the remaining 161hp.
Lamborghini’s cars have always looked wonderful. Lately though, they seem to be going the extra step to get sexier, sometimes going past the convention. The Aventador is one sexy car, and this new offering the Veneno is pretty attractive, though with a somewhat different outlook than the comparatively widely available Aventador. We say comparatively because the Veneno is an extremely limited edition supercar, with only three instances available.
Middle-East is a very hot market for supercars, the more expensive and exclusive they get, the faster they sell. In a ground as fertile as this for sale, it would be obvious that someone would rise to take a slice of the market. The Arab world now has a supercar that it can call its own, and that is the W Motors’s Lykan Hypersport which made a show at the Qatar Auto Show.
