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.

It’s no surprise that a movie named "Need For Speed" will star plenty of potent and expensive supercars . When you’re dealing with cars as expensive as the ones in the movie, the last thing you want to do is damage one.

In order to avoid this possibility, the crew put together the entire replica-supercar lineup in less than six months that includes the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport , Koenigsegg Agera , Lamborghini Sesto Elemento , McLaren P1 , Saleen S7 , GTA Spano and many more.

Along with these supercars, we also know that the 2015 Ford Mustang will also star in the upcoming movie and will be driven by Aaron Paul.

The above video has a look at the supercars, and shows how the team of builders put the supercars together.

The Need For Speed movie will arrive in theaters on March 14, 2014.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R is the flagship of the Nissan brand and represents one of the greatest price-to-performance bargains of all time. Thanks to a 545 horsepower engine, a quick-shifting dual-clutch transmission and an advanced all-wheel drive system, the GT-R has set multiple track records for production cars around the world.

Despite its ability to blitz most Ferraris and Lamborghinis around a track, the GT-R carries a price that is less than half those competitors.

Nissan has even tried to infuse a large dose of day-to day livability by giving the GT-R four seats and a large trunk.

But where did Nissan sacrifice to keep the price down? Can it match the more expensive competitors in refinement, comfort or technology? I spent 10 days and more than 1,600 miles behind the wheel to figure out if the newest version of Nissan’s ultimate sports car is everything it seems to be.

It goes without saying that Lamborghini is regarded as one of the most prestigious auto brands in the world, so it really doesn’t have much use for commercials. If the name of the game is fostering brand awareness, Lamborghini doesn’t need that.

Yet there it was, the new Lamborghini Huracan , being filmed running around some city streets, which looks to be a commercial shoot in plain view of pedestrians. That’s awesome and all, especially since it just made its debut a little over a month ago, but the big deal is that this is the first time we actually get to see the Huracan in its natural element.

Normally, things like this go unnoticed without us even blinking an eyelash, but exceptions are certainly made for cars like the Huracan. Add to that the fact that it’s sporting an orange hue that’s similar to what we first saw with the Aventador a few years back, and we can’t help but stare and drool.

More importantly, watching the video and hearing that throaty growl of the Huracan makes us believe that we haven’t seen the best of this new Lambo yet.

It’s been a while since Arash Cars made headlines and we certainly missed it a lot.

Lately, however, Arash Farboud — the company’s founder — has been making noise about a new supercar that it plans to reveal in the not-so-distant future. Turns out, that time is upon us.

A new teaser with "28.02.2014" on it is making its rounds lately and we don’t need to be rocket scientists to figure out that it’s the date that Arash plans to officially unveil its new pride and joy. The vehicle, which remains nameless, has been in the pipeline for years now and amidst all those delays, we’re finally going to get a close look at it in a month’s time.

We see teasers all the time in this business, but this one has us legitimately excited, especially when Arash throws out proclamations of it being a worthy rival to the Lamborghini Huracan .

There was also another teaser photo, which shows a close-up look of the carbon-fiber steering wheel, which was released together with the "save the date variety." While this one doesn’t dive into specifics of what we can expect, we can at least look forward to knowing that Arash didn’t shortchange this new supercar.

It may have taken a while to finish, but we’re confident that the wait is going to be well worth it.

Patent drawings revealed late last year got the web buzzing about a new one-off Ferrari called the SP FFX .

As it turns out, a forum member from Ferrari Chat disclosed that this car is, in fact, the one-off SP FFX that was built by Ferrari’s own customization program, which was created specifically to let people with pockets deeper than the Marianas Trench pay exorbitant sums for a Ferrari that they can call uniquely "their own."

The general proportions of the Ferrari FF are pretty clear on this one, particularly the headlights and the side-view mirrors. The special grille doesn’t do much to excite us, but we do like how the splashes of white — particularly on the wheels — add a nice balance to the unmistakable Rosso Red body.

Performance numbers are still a relative mystery, but we think it’s going to retain the standard 6.3-liter, V-12 engine with 651 horsepower and 503 pound-feet of torque on tap. We expect the supercar to hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and head up to a top speed of 208 mph.

According to "getnoir" — the aforementioned forum member of Ferrari Chat who showed the photo — the SP FFX was designed and built specifically for a Japanese customer. Something tells us that he’s going to love what Ferrari has built for him.

If anything, the SP FFX has one-off written all over it.

Another week, another program for DMC.

This time, DMC has dressed up a Ferrari 458 Italia with not only a custom stealthy black finish, but a custom body kit that’s befitting of its name: Elegante.

This isn’t the first time DMC has used the Elegante kit on the 458, but it is the first time the coupe got the treatment — last time it was the 458 Spider that received the kit.

The Elegante body kit is as comprehensive as its name leads you to believe. It’s got all the usual digs we’ve come to expect from DMC, including a new front spoiler lip, larger side skirts and a new rear bumper with a modified diffuser setup.

The engine also gets some minor performance upgrades that pump it up to a stout 608 horsepower, thanks in large part to a remapped ECU and a new stainless-steel exhaust system. That’s a pretty healthy upgrade from its stock 562 horsepower from its base 4.5-liter V-8.

Far be it for us to judge the number supercars DMC modifies, we still go back to our belief of quantity is only as good as the quality. So far, DMC is proving that saying true with one quality program after another.

DMC, you’re skills in tuning supercars have no bounds.

McLaren’s brand expansion is now in full-swing and the latest reports indicate that the huge gap between the MP4-12C and the P1 will soon be filled by an all-new model.

The company is in the early stages of this new supercar , christened the "P15" prototype, but confirmation that the car is being planned was finally given by McLaren Automotive chief executive Mike Flewitt.

Speaking to Autocar, Flewitt characterized the development of the P15 as still "quite a long way off," which basically translates to "it’s not coming anytime soon." So that’s a bummer, if you’re not the patient type.

But if you are, this is tremendous news, especially taking into account the company’s stance of building and/or introducing a new model every year. This year, that model could very well be the P13 , another new McLaren that’s being billed as an entry-level model.

But the P15 is being pegged as a car that will rival the Ferrari F12berlinetta and will carry a price tag of somewhere around ₤400,000, which is about $662,000 based on current exchange rates. In addition, rumors point to the P15 using the same 3.8-liter, V-8, twin-turbocharged engine as that of the 12C, albeit one that will be heavily reworked to crank its numbers to the neighborhood of the F12berlinetta .

McLaren didn’t divulge any real details at the risk of spoiling all the surprises, but make no mistake, there’s a lot of buzz coming out of Woking these days. And for what it’s worth, it’s the kind of buzz that will be talked about by folks like us now and in the future.

For our part, we’re curious as to how all this shakes up when McLaren’s full slate of models are all up and running. It’s beginning to look more and more like it’s backing up its promise of building more models and like anything else, you’re not going to see too many complaints coming from us.

We also created a rendering of what we think the P15 may look like. You can see the clear relation to the P!, but with a pointier nose, more pronounced, downward-turning headlights, front vents on each side of the apron, larger rear air intakes with splitters and flatter hips. We’ll release more renderings once we get a few spy shots of the P15.

Count your blessings if you’ve been lucky enough to see the Lamborghini Veneno in person. Seeing as there are only three of these babies in existence, it’s a quite a sight to behold.

Better yet, count yourself really lucky if you just happen to have the financial freedom to afford one, kind of like one Kris Singh, who recently took delivery of the second Veneno in his own home on Miami Beach.

It’s become abundantly clear to a lot of people that the Veneno isn’t your ordinary Lamborghini , as if using the word ’ordinary’ to describe Lamborghini is already enough of a stretch as it is. But Singh, who is a manager of a private investment firm, isn’t your ordinary guy, either. The man clearly has the money to pay for a $4.1 million, even if his taste in the Veneno leaves a little to be desired.

Still and all, the mere fact that he had the Veneno delivered personally to his front door is worthy of being documented, which the folks over at duPont Registry were more than happy to do.

And you know what? The video also offers a nice look into the kind of customization — or lack there of — Singh put into his new Veneno before having it delivered to his house.

ASMA Design has a history of building some pretty impressive programs for a variety of supercars and while it technically hasn’t started on one for the McLaren P1 , it’s safe to say that judging by the rendering it released on what the P1 would look like after it’s done with it, ASMA should do it as soon as humanly possible.

One look and you can immediately tell that the P1’s level of aesthetic wonder just went to overdrive. The added vents and ducts, in particular, do more than just making the P1 look more tiger-fierce, but the improved air flow and aerodynamic stability are all equally important in giving the supercar more balance.

After all, when you’re talking about a car that features a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, V-8 engine that produces a staggering 903 horsepower, you’re going to be need to be able to control all those horses running under its hood. Add that to the fact that the P1 is capable of hitting 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds to go with a top speed of 218 mph makes us wonder whether ASMA Design has a performance tune in store for the McLaren exotic.

Maybe somewhere close to 1,100 ponies, perhaps?

We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, but holy mackerel, wouldn’t that be just sick?!

Pagani Huayra is one supercar that continues to make a huge impression on us, regardless of how many times we see it. The only problem is that up to this point, we haven’t gotten the chance to get behind the wheel and push it to its limits. Lucky for us, we can enjoy this great video that shows us what the Huayra is really capable of.

The Huayra is powered by a Mercedes-sourced 6.0-liter, V-12 twin-turbo engine that delivers an outstanding 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet of torque. This is enough to sprint the Huayra from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 230 mph.

This video was shot on the Monza race track, Italy and includes close fly by and acceleration. So, turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy the fantastic sound the Huayra makes.
