Before McLaren began manufacturing their own supercar, they collaborated with Mercedes-Benz and came up with the 600-plus horsepower McLaren Mercedes SLR . A limited number of cars went on sale in the first half the previous decade. A later iteration of SLR was a special edition called the SLR 722 Edition .

It was named "722" as a tribute to Stirling Moss’ Mercedes 300 SLR no.722 that won the 1955 Mille Miglia. They also made roadster based on the 722 Edition . In 2009, a limited-run 722S made its debut. Only 150 units were ever produced. One of them is now up for sale in the U.K.

The current ownquoting $493,000 (approx. as per current exchange rates). The car’s run just 845 miles and is one of just 150 examples making it among the prized selections

BMW i8 Concept Spyder

When BMW first unveiled the new i-brand cars, the world did not expect the concepts to become reality in such a short time. When a conceptual design study is undertaken, most of the time the designers are let lose on to a clean sheet of paper and come up with the best possible show car for the occasion. In recent times, BMW has shown us some production ready concepts, but the i8 always seemed way ahead of its time.

In 2012, BMW unveiled the i8 Spyder Concept . Based on the coupe, the i8 Spyder has been confirmed for production in 2015. We could expect the electric sports car to be available in showrooms in the latter part of 2015. The open-top version wouls use the same composite materials and architecture unique to BMW’s i-range of cars which also includes thei3 hatchback .

Although, its too early to comment on the pricing of the upcoming BMW i8 Spyder , we expect it to cost slightly more than the coupe. Performance shouldn’t affected despite the roof being chopped off.

Not so long ago, Lamborghini revealed its Gallardo replacement in the form of the Huracan LP610-4 . The new supercar from Lamborghini looks strikingly similar to the larger and more powerful Aventador. But, the Aventador LP700-4 is a thing of beauty and hence we have no problems with the Huracan sharing a family face.

Within days of its unveiling, the internet was flooded with artist renderings of the Huracan in various configurations including a Spyder version. What we have here is Evren Milanos idea of the Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera. The artists even goes on to predict the engine specifications adding the suffix "LP640-4".

These renderings seem very close to the real thing. I personally like the one in yellow. Anyways, the artist has added a large rear spoiler and full body kit to the Huracan. Wheels are of a different variety. The front bumper gets a more pronounced splitter element while at the rear is diffuser for added downforce. We also like the idea of a roof scoop.

Although, Lamborghini is yet to release details about the lightweight Superleggera version, Evren Milano’s design gives us an idea of how attractive and exciting it can be. That said, the Superleggera will be lighter and more powerful than the standard Huracan. Hence, the predicted 640 horsepower seems realistic.

More V-8 supercar news. This time it is an American car with a massively powerful V-8 in the form of a Ford GT X1 TT . This highly modified Ford GT has been worked up on by Rich Brooks from the The GT Guy LLC. The engine in this car puts out no less than 1000 horsepower.

Ford built the Ford GT in 2004 as a replacement for the Le Mans winning Ford GT40. The company produced just over 4000 units of the GT. The standard car was powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 coupled with a supercharger.

The thirsty configuration was able to put down 550 horsepower. The car was designed along the lines of the original with flared rear haunches and low roof line. It was pretty unique car this.

Rich Brooks was able to double the output by adding a twin-turbo contraption to the already powerful 5.4-liter V-8 to a rare, limited edition Ford GT X1. Just 30 examples were ever built as part of a deal with the Genaddi Design Group.

The twin-turbo 1000 horsepower V-8 was then called the Ford GT X1 TT. At present, the car is in the U.S. with 3700 miles on the odometer and is up for sale for $450,000.

Dubai is an oasis of hyper-expensive lifestyle in the middle of the Arabian desert. It is home to the tallest building in the world and the most expensive hotel suite, I would guess. Anyway, what this Emirate is also famous for, is its police squad. Renowned for its collection of supercars, the Dubai police certainly need them especially when there are so many privately owned high performance machines around.

Now, to keep a check on the ever growing population of millionaires and their supercars, the Dubai police have added a new squad car to their line-up. Dubai PD have taken delivery of a McLaren MP4-12C . So, if you have a need for speed, the 12C is the last thing you want to see in your rear view mirror.

Much to the relief of supercar owners in the region, the Dubai police use their supercars for promotional purposes and not to chase speeding boy racers. Like all the other cars in the squad, the MP4-12C gets the famous Dubai PD green livery over white base.

We’re sure the entire order of the new season will be released soon, so stay tuned.

Until then, enjoy the season-three teaser video above!

BMW Individual is defined by genuine exclusiveness combined with the most exclusive materials and colors. So, it was expected to see these exclusive features applied to the recently launched M3 sedan and M4 coupe . Both models will be displayed in January 2014 at the Detroit Auto Show alongside the standard M3 and M4 versions.

The BMW M4 Coupe Individual will be painted Mineral White and, even though there is no official confirmation on this just yet, we expect it to also get some elements seen on previous BMW Individual models, including special wheels and a black-chrome exhaust system.

The interior is trimmed in a sexy brown finish combined with high-quality wood. The seats are wrapped in a special leather that features a sharp cinnamon look, while some nice aluminum elements spice up the cabin and take the M4’s luxury up another notch — as if it really needs it.

Chargespeed Japan has launched an aerodynamic upgrade for the R35 generation Nissan GT-R . The aero-kit is now available in the U.S. as well. Unlike other aftermarket body kits available for the Nissan GT-R , the "Bottomline" by Chargespeed Japan has been designed to blend into the GT-R’s contours. The company also claims to have improved aerodynamic performance of the R35 Nissan GT-R.

Nissan has spent years perfecting the aerodynamic performance of the new GT-R , so it is already near perfection, so any improvements by this kit will only make the GT-R better.

The front bumper gets an add-on air dam to streamline the air hitting the front bumper. The side skirts have been lowered to prevent air from getting under the car and causing lift. The rear uses tiny guide vanes at the upper edge of the rear windshield to direct air onto the rear spoiler. A rear diffuser also helps channel air from under the car to create more downforce.

The Bottomline kit is a made specifically for Nissan GT-Rs built between 2009 and 2013. The company also offers individual components for those of you who want to build it piece-by-piece.

All the parts are made of fiber-reinforced plastics, but customers can also opt for "Hybrid" carbon-fiber parts, hand laid with a 1x1 weave. Chargespeed is also working on an all-carbon body kit upgrade.

Back in March, Manhart Racing revealed its first tuning kit based on the new-generation BMW M6 . Today Manhart offers a second look to the sports coupe and came up with a more powerful, more aggressively looking M6 coupe.

The new kit is called MH6 700, which is a clear indication of the 700-plus horses at play under the hood. In order to obtain this amazing power increase, the Manhart equipped the 4.4 liter, V-8 engine with a "Stage 4" performance kit that includes a remapped ECU, a Carbon-Air-Intake-System, and a new exhaust system with downpipes, sports catalytic converters and sports rear silencers made of stainless-steel.

Thanks to all these updates, the V-8 engine delivers a total of 743 horsepower and 702 pound-feet of torque. With the extra power in tow, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph now only takes 3.8 seconds and it can now hit a top speed of 198 mph.
