McLaren unveils it's new super sportscar the Senna. It's not the prettiest thing in the world but I freaking love it. Form follow function and this car packs function. 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, from a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, all in a 2,641 pounds package? That sounds mental indeed. And the performance surely is. Think of it as a P1 without the heavy batteries and extra electric motors. the Senna in fact weighs 400 lbs less than the P1. 0-60 takes 2.7 seconds, but the P1 beats in in top speed at 217mph vs 211mph. but when you're in this territory, does it even matter?
Making a race car street legal is a bit more complicated then it seems.
MIC DROPPED!!! Tesla gave us a sneak peek at the new Tesla Roadster to be released in 202 and the numbers are just incredible. 0-60mph in 1.9s, 0-100mph in 4.2s, Quarter mile in 8.8s, 250mph+ top speed, 620 mile range, 4 seats, and will cost $200,000. And it looks GORGEOUS to top it all off. HOLY FREAKING CRAP!! No press release yet but we'll update you as information is released.
Lamborghini teamed up with MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) to develope the next generation of supercars. Highlights include an ultra lightweight structure, and highly aero body. The all electric car uses fast chargin supercapitors that are thin and molded into the body panels itself.
LeftlaneNews is reporting that Ford designers are saying the upcoming Ford Bronco will look like a 4 door Troller T4 that is available in international markets. I went ahead and photoshopped what that could look like. I myself would prefer smaller rear doors (like an FJ Cruiser), to keep the looks as classic Bronco as possible, while still giving it 4 doors. What do you think?
Lamborghini has unveiled the production version of the Urus concept car, and it's pretty insane. 641 horsepower, 627 lb-ft of torque, 0t-62 mph in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 190mph. All from a 4.0L tiwn turbo V8 with a 8 speed automatic trasmission. Is this a worthy successor to the original LM002? I would say yes.
Someone is building a custom Model S shooting Brake because of his dog.
Well this is SHARP! The new company Apollo (a break off of Gumpert) is entirely its own creation and represents what they consider a hypercar. The car features a 6.3L V12 makingd 780hp while weighing in at just 2755lbs. The car will tap out at 208mph.
the next generation of the BMW Z4 is previewed in the new Concept Z4 being shown at this year's Pebble Beach Concourse de Elegance. The new car looks great with its traditional long hood and low slung attitude. The shark-like surfacing is accentuated by the aggressive front and rear headlights and the integrated seat buttresses. Some highlights that really struck out to me are the dual colored interior, red paddle shifters, and windhsield glass that reaches all the way out to the edge. Hopefully some of these features will make it to the production version of the car.
Ford is showing off the new 2018 Ford Ranger for the North American market at this year's 2018 Detroit Auto Show. This Ranger is already being sold worldwide but makes its debut/return to our shores for 2018. It will come with a 2.3L Ecoboost turbo 4 cyl engine mated to a 10 speed transmission, and will come in XL, XLT, and Lariat trim levels. No word on power or pricing yet, but it sure does look tough.
It's a goddamn spaceship. Look at it! It makes over 1000hp and 1,830lbs of downforce at top speed. Oh and it's not street legal.
Chevrolet goes all out with the C7 swan song. Before the new mid-engined C8 Corvette is announced. the new ZR1 is the fastest and most powerful Corvetter ever with 755hp and unique desig features. Also it's pretty damn badass.
I can't get over how great this car looks. Holy Crap! Mazda is showing off another concept car for Tokyo Motor Show with a new 4 door concept of the RX Vision concept from last year. My jaw is still dropped.
