Supercars / Exotic cars

Supercars / Exotic cars

  A Supercar is a sports car, typically an exotic or rare one, whose performance is highly superlative to its contemporary sports cars. They are pure bestial look and performance. Even if you never own one of these they will change the way you feel about cars just by looking at them.

A car like the Ferrari LaFerrari is priced in the millions for a reason: it’s got all the latest technology you can find in the industry, it’s limited in quantity with only 499 units built, and It’s got a powerful engine.

Best of all, it’s built by Ferrari , arguably the most prestigious brand in the auto world today.

But for those with pockets deep enough to afford a LaFerrari, there’s always that possibility that buyer’s remorse kicks in, and apparently, it did to one of the supercar’s first owners.

The ad, which was posted on Semco GmbH, is looking for a buyer who can take the LaFerrari off of the hands of its current owner for a price of €2.38 million ($3.2 million). The amount isn’t a misprint. That’s almost three times the original price of the LaFerrari, which is absurd enough itself.

So if you’re in the market for the most powerful and expensive road car Ferrari has ever built, here’s your chance to get one. You’re going to pay a heck of a premium for it, but considering that the model is already sold out, the used car market is your best bet to get one.

As 2013 draws to a close and 2014 shines brightly before us, we pause to look at what vehicles we’re most excited about in the next 12 months. The market is flooded with new models, but only a select few have caught the world’s attention with their performance, luxury, and technological advancements.

Some models push the envelope in their own respective categories while other (like BMW’s i-lineup ) give a larger push towards a future of automotive technology that reduces fuel consumption while maintaining, if not increasing, the current level of performance on the street and track. Alternative fuels and self-driving cars were once novel ideas that only graced the pages of science fiction books, but as 2014 seems to promise, those ideas may very well jump off the pages and into reality.

A Bugatti Veyron that’s priced at close to $2 million is an understandable amount given the level of luxury, performance, and technology put into the supercar. But a Bugatti belt that costs $84,000?

Seems like a tad too expensive, right?

Yet that’s exactly the amount Bugatti is charging for this fashion accessory. In fairness to Bugatti, the belt does come with some nifty technological workings, particularly the use of equipment normally reserved for Swiss matches as integral components of its mechanism. On top of that, it’s been finished in three different, albeit all expensive finishes: white gold, rose gold, and a still-to-be-determined third series run.

The belt also has smoked sapphire crystals and over 100 handcrafted parts made from stainless steel, solid gold, and titanium. Needless to say, a ton of work was done by Roland Iten to turn this belt into a true showcase piece of wealth and deep pockets.

There are only 44 units available, although at the cost of one, we doubt if these belts will sell like ice cream on a hot summer day.

While Lamborghini failed to offer us an in-depth look on the new Aventador LP720-4 50° Anniversario , Youtube user Saabkyle04 had the chance to get up close and personal with the new supercar and shot a very cool video of the most extreme Aventador up to this point.

The video includes start up shots, performance and fuel economy figures, the occasional track data, and build quality. You will also learn about all the exterior and the interior features, so that when you have $500k ready in your pocket, all you’ll have to do is go to your local dealership and buy the car.

And of course the video could not be complete with all those cool rev and exhaust notes with both interior and exterior perspectives.

As a reminder, the Aventador LP720-4 50° Anniversario is powered by a 6.5 liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 720 horsepower - an increase of 20 horsepower over the base car. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.

Can you believe that in just one week since its online debut, the new Lamborghini Huracan already received two upgrade kits? The first one was announced by DMC Tuning , while the second one comes from Oakley Design. Of course they are both virtual, but both are showing the amazing tuning capacities of the new Huracan supercar.

According to Oakley Design this is just an initial design they are offering for the Huracan, but it will be tweaked, so most likely the final car will look a little different than this.

The tuner brags it placed orders for two Lamborghini Huracan supercars, so the new tuning kit will most likely be applied to these two cars. However, until we’ll have the chance to see the final tuning kit, Oakley needs to go and see the new Huracan during a private unveiling on January 15, 2014.

What is the best way to finish a year? With a very cool test drive involving two of the most powerful supercars currently available on the market: a Lamborghini Aventador Coupe and an Aventador Roadster .

The idea belong to the British magazine AutoCar - which is at its second test of this kind. If you remember, in the first one, it wanted to see which of the two versions can fly . This second test is a little bit more concise as it involves a full length challenge: AutoCar wanted to see how far they can jump, how hard they can drift and how fast they really are.

So, what do you think, which of the two versions is the best on the test track? Check out the video to see if you are right and if you guessed the winner! Of course, do not forget to turn up the volume, really high!

Now that we’ve already seen the first official images of the new Lamborghini Huracan , one thing will happen for sure: there will also be a Roadster version. Of course that its official debut is still years away, but imagining how it will look like wasn’t hard at all, so today we prepared a first set of renderings for you.

As you probably expect it, the future Huracan Roadster will look pretty much identical to the coupe version, except of course its roof that we expect to be identical to what we have seen in the Aventador Roadster . This means that the Huracan Roadster will get a two-piece roof made entirely from carbon fiber that can be stored in the luggage compartment. Unlike the coupe version, the Huracan Roadster will also get a redesigned rear pillar for a better support of the new, removable roof.

Everything else will be kept identical to the coupe version, including the engine found under the hood: a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm.

Expect the new Huracan Roadster to be unveiled almost one year after the coupe version arrives on the market, so, most likely U.S. customers will be able to drive it sometime during the 2016 model year.

BMW ’s supercar, the M1 , was sold between 1978 to 1981 as the only mid-engined BMW to be mass produced. But you’d expect more from a maker like BMW, right? And with all the competition on the market, BMW had to do something about it, so they decided to put the Vision Efficient Dynamics Concept unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show into production.

There is one distinct change for the Vision Efficient Dynamics Concept as it heads into production, as BMW changed its name to the i8. Along with the recently announced i3, the i8 shows the other end of the spectrum that the German automaker can reach with its hybrid drivetrains. The production i8 will, surprisingly, carry the concept’s in-line three-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor to drive the front wheels.

As of now, there is only one i8 model set for production, but we have a sneaking suspicion that there may be an M or M Sport model in coming years.

UPDATE 9/9/2013: The production version BMW i8 finally made its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show , so you can now see the real deal with no camouflage at all. Check the picture gallery to see the new pictures.

UPDATE 9/11/2013: BMW has revealed the i8’s base price in the U.S. of $135,925. It’ll hit showrooms in the spring of 2014.

Updated 12/26/2013: BMW unveiled a new video in which it explains the performance figures behind the new i8 hybrid supercar. Enjoy!

Updated 12/30/2013: Today is time for a new video featuring the new i8 hybrid supercar. This time BMW explains the design features of the new supercar.

Updated 02/07/2014: BMW is launching the new i8 supercar on the U.S. market with a very cool commercial that pays tribute to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. So, you got it: German supercar, launched on the American soil with Russian-inspired commercial!
