  The cooled and fastest cars are here, check it out if you are looking for the ultimate exotics and supercars.


Production versions of hypercars with pricing above $3,000,000 are generally a pretty rare sight.

That will be the case with the W Motors Lykan, of which the company plans to build only ten copies before moving on to a Lykan Targa or cheaper Lykan SuperSport models.

This company seems to be more in-touch with reality that some other follies from this region, including the laughable Laraki Epitome that is nothing more than a Corvette C6.R with a hideous new body.

But super cars like the Lykan HyperSport typically make their world debuts at major auto shows like Geneva or Frankfurt.

Even so, it is more fitting for the production Lykan to be unveiled near W Motors headquarters on the main stretch of central Dubai. Lack of European sales could contribute to the local debut, because this is where the main buyers are as well.

So get your pens, checkbooks and cameras ready, fellas. There’s a new Veyron chaser on Dubai’s sandy highways.

W Motors is ready to unveil at the production version of the beastly Lykan HyperSport at the Dubai International Motor Show this coming November.

As far as delivering the fantasy specs of the 2013 winter show prototype, W Motors has done really well. In terms of luxury features for the production model, W Motors has fitted the hyper car with a slew of new goodies, including:

  • holographic central display HUD with interactive motion and tactile interaction
  • an advanced ID4Motion dashboard
  • bespoke rear-hinged scissor doors with remote operation
  • diamond encrusted LED lights
  • gold-stitched interior seats
  • a personal elite concierge service
  • a unique and patented design of Cyrus Klepcys watch available only for HyperSport buyers, but tagged with a retail price of $300,000-plus in value. (For the watch, not the car.)

Talk about trying to live up to its proclamation of its model being "the most luxurious, exclusive and technologically advanced hypercar in the world."

No, a Canadian supercar is not a snowmobile. Very funny, guys.

Admittedly, Canada isn’t the first place you think of when you’re considering as home of the world’s finest supercars.

Montreal-based automaker Magnum hopes to change that and on October 30, it’s serving notice that Canada is potentially on its way to becoming the home of a mainstream supercar.

That date has been earmarked by Magnum as the day it will reveal the MK5, a lightweight, two-seater supercar that Magnum is set to develop with styling details befitting an exotic to go with a racecar-like performance.

Details are still limited at this point, but the way Magnum is building up for the reveal of the MK5 lends to the growing notion that it’s got quite a stunner in its hands. The company has indicated that development and testing of the MK5 has already been completed, leaving its official reveal as the final piece of the puzzle that needs to be put in to make the whole image complete.

Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too long to find out more about the Magnum MK5. It makes its debut at the end of the month and if Magnum lives up to all its selling, the MK5 could fulfill the company’s promise of making it "the first creation from Canada to hit the international track-day car market."

How does the latest Lexus style look in the flesh? Pretty darn sexy, if you ask us.

Wearing almost the exact shame shade of maroon paint as the 2012 LF-CC concept, and headlights to match as well, the 2014 IS is quickly becoming one of the best-looking compact luxury models available.

The IS 350 AWD is priced from $41,700 and is the top version of the IS lineup, except of course the F Sport variants.

Lexus brought the IS onto the market in 1998 as an entry level model placed under the more powerful ES luxury sedan.

The second generation arrived in 2005 and the third one was unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show and went on sale in mid-2013 in both rear- and all-wheel-drive versions.

The IS 350 AWD comes loaded with tons of standard features, but customers interested in updating it even further have a lot of packages and options to choose from. The only problem is that these options are quite expensive and you can end up paying up to $60k for a highly equipped version.

The entire IS lineup was heavily updated for the new generation, and, just like with the GS and LS models it will feature an inverted trapezoidal upper grille, slanted lower grille and new headlights with LED technology.

Pagani Huayra

About the Pagani Huayra we know a lot of things, except maybe the most important one: price and optional features. However, a leaked document is now also disclosing these features, so all we need now are the money to buy it.

A base Huayra is priced at €1,050,000 - or about $1,4 million at the current exchange rates. Of course this can be considered a reasonable price, when you consider the amount of power, the price for the competition and the fact that you are indeed buying a Pagani supercar.

However, things can change literally when you take a look at the options prices. For example a full carbon body work is priced at €112,500 - or about $151,700; chancing the color of the wheels will add another €3,500, or $4,700, while adding a premium leather interior will cost you an additional €7,900, or $10,650. So, with a few updates here and there the price for your Huayra can easily go up to about $2 million - which is not so cool.

To remind you, for the money you will get a supercar powered by an AMG sourced V-12 engine that delivers a total of 700 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. With this power the Huayra will go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and up to a top speed of 230 mph.

The Chevrolet Camaro is fresh for 2014 with a wide variety of new technology and features for all levels of the iconic pony-car lineup.

There are highlights at every price level, with the all-new Z28 ’s rainy-day lap record of the Nurburgring setting the tone for much more capable and handling-focused rear-drive sports coupes from Chevy in 2014.

The stars are aligned for TopSpeed and the Camaro as well, because no sooner did we stop speculating about the Z28’s driver on Twitter ... a brand-new Camaro RS had arrived out front.

This RS is so far removed from all the previous appearance packages that comparing new to old is almost impossible. Despite carrying a DOHC V-6 engine in place of the Corvette’s OHV V-8, the Camaro RS sings with just as much throaty rumble under power.

How to make a V-6, direct-injection engine bellow? Four giant stainless tips peek out from below the new LED tail lights - giving a big clue that this is no old Vulcan V-6 Mustang .

Matching polished 20-inch alloys and LED lighting up front completes the Camaro RS’s exterior makeover.

But the ultimate show piece is the new dual-mode active exhaust option. At $900, this will be money in the bank for years to come. The baffles open at about 3,250 RPM and stay clear through the Camaro V-6’s 7,000 RPM red-line.

But if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth a million. Enjoy these first drive video reviews ahead of the full TopSpeed Driven review in the coming weeks.

Rearview mirrors are used for a lot of things. Some people use them to keep an eye on mischievous kids in the back seat. Others view them as a tool in the fight to apply makeup in heavy traffic before reaching the office each morning. Still others actually use them for the intended purpose of keeping an eye on what’s going on out back.

Well, 2013 Camaro owners and now 2014 Corvette Stingray owners will get the joy of viewing their six O’clock with a swanky new frameless rearview mirror that houses an all-new OnStar interface within an electrochromic touch screen display.

The new display makes its home at the bottom-center of the new mirror’s glass. When touched, the three buttons illuminate for use and dim shortly afterward in a clean effect. The frameless mirror itself is auto-dimming for those long drives at night with oblivious drivers riding their high beams only a few yards behind. In contrast to the high-tech touch screen aspect, the mirror takes on a retro look recalling the days when frameless mirrors were all the rage. In all, the mirror’s overall look is very clean and classy with just the right amount of J.J. Abrams-esque technology glowing within.

The touch screen display features OnStar’s redesigned voice recognition, emergency, and OnStar buttons. The new voice recognition button – which looks like a person talking - replaces the telematics button that was strictly used for placing calls. Now the new system allows occupants to speak commands for sending text messages, checking the weather and stocks, accessing saved navigation routes, and of course, making phone calls.

The emergency button also gets a new look with a more internationally recognized SOS logo verses the outgoing white cross graphic. Finally, the actual blue OnStar button carries on with the same look since its last redesign in 2010.

Currently, only the Camaro and Corvette get the new mirror, but the rumor mill is ripe with talks of the frameless mirror finding its way into other GM vehicles – something we would love to see happen.

If the new Stingray has really been to chassis and charm school for 2014, what about the equally-exciting 2014 Camaro Z28?

With tires from a steamroller and a soundtrack to match, the Camaro is faster than ever with its refreshed aerodynamics and electronics for 2014.

What Chevrolet shows in this high-resolution video is a single brave driver challenging the ultimate proving ground, the north circuit of the Nurburgring. For give the lack of ’umlat dots’ over the U - this is breaking news.

An insider tip gives TopSpeed the jump on this story, which is sure to be huge news.

Not sure what size shoes this driver wears, or how he became so brave on the dizzing array of corners, elevation changes, and ultimate blaring high-speed run down the back straight.

The headline is the time achieved by the Z28 in these damp conditions. A 7:37:47 is a major accomplishment for the Z28, easily lopping 30 seconds off what a similar SS could achieve before 2014.

Performance Traction Management brings part of the thrill under control, but the blaring soundtrack and high-definition timer visuals offer a Camaro like no other.

And none with absolutely super-car-fast lap times on the world’s hardest track. This video this a must-watch event, so put it on HD mode, and sit back for the thrill ride of a lifetime in the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28.

Updated 10/15/2013: This article has been updated with a mega photo gallery of the 2014 Z/28’s most recent adventure.

The Nissan Juke Nismo is a really surprising little machine. After a week with my foot on the floor (in ’normal’ mode), I was vaguely unimpressed with the little truck’s ability to hustle out of its own way. I thought it looked cool and handled well, had great seats and a good image. But... even the coolest car in the world still needs to be fast to get my attention, and yours too I bet.

Silly me. The TopSpeed team is mostly hard at work during the day producing news content, so the amount of miles we put on the press loaners is pretty low overall.

That extra time was exactly what I needed to discover the Juke Nismo’s sport buttons, which allow personalization of numerous parameters between normal, sport and eco.

Most sport buttons in mainstream cars are a waste of time. They might make the engine hold shifts longer, or thump harder over bumps - but generally achieve very little beyond that.

The Nismo sport tune is far from subtle, however. Cars have to generally start up in their ’Normal’ setting so that they can achieve the emissions and economy required by the test and buyers.

Flipping to Juke Nismo to Sport mode opens up a totally different little crossover. One that has front, AWD auto or even a V-mode all-wheel-drive setting to keep traction.

Skinny tires ensure more playfullness than is normal in a compact, and the sport mode also transforms the optional CVT auto of our test car into something much, much more special. It thrums and upshifts like a real sports car, with handling and steering precision on the highway that seems autobahn-ready.

A quick walk-around video of the Juke Nismo highlights some of the reasons I loved this car by the end of our time together. It also shows of an impressive exhaust rumble and all the Nismo-exclusive styling features of this $27,000 pocket rocket.

The exclusive world of hypercars comes alive in the 918’s dual-mode hybrid powertrain. A snooze though the H word is, one snippet of the above video with both the big V-8 and all electric motors spinning proves the 918 is pure Porsche racecar.

Once in a decade or two, the automotive enthusiasts of this world get treated with the finest the industry can offer. This year, we saw the launch of three unique hypercars from brands that need no introduction; Mclaren, Ferrari and Porsche .

The last time Porsche made a supercar, they went with massive, gas-guzzling engines with insane amounts of horsepower. The age we live in today calls for efficient, eco-friendly motoring unlike in the past. Porsche has replaced the V10 powered Carrera GT with a V8 hybrid they call the 918 Spyder.

In a video released recently, Porsche demonstrates the production powertrain that makes the 918 Spyder such a worthy successor to the Carrera GT .

The buyer’s guide details are even more stunning, with paints far more exotic than ever before.

Click past the jump for all the juicy details you need to order the hottest 918 Spyder on the roads in 2014.

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in the creation of all those cool Hot Wheels models?

No one was the wiser before, but thanks to the fine people at Mattel’s headquarters in El Segundo, California, we’re being treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how all the concept-car shapes are made into smooth-rolling toys - in mini scale.

The kids in all of us will probably be inspired by watching a video like this, and in some ways, the same can be said for all of us who are now fully ingrained in the auto industry.

It’s always a treat to see the toys we enjoyed during our own formative years developed in the kind of way we probably never expected when we were asking our parents to buy us our own Hot Wheels back in the day.

And if for nothing else, the video will really bring us back to those days when we dreamt about running our Hot Wheels through all those race tracks. Seeing this is making me consider buying some to play with around the office!

This is a must-watch video if you’ve ever been a fan of Hot Wheels.
