Launched at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the brand-new Lamborghini Huracan is an open book by now, with all of the details around it revealed, analyzed and put to good use in comparisons against the Ferrari 458 Italia , its most feared rival.

We’ve also seen a couple of video reviews featuring Sant’Agata Bolognese’s latest machine, but there’s one thing bothering us; we have yet to see the Huracan in the flesh. And that’s because the supercar has yet to hit the streets, with its very anxious customers having to keep their excitement in check for another few months.

But production and post-assembly testing is well underway in Lamborghini ’s home town, as revealed by YouTube’s Mikesupercars, who has spotted and taped several Huracans moving in and out of the company’s offices in Sant’Agata Bolognese. This is the very first time we get to see the Huracan on the move without being featured in a review, and we’re more than happy we are able to do so.

Making the footage even better is the fact that it shows the supercar in various colors, including red, orange, white, and black. According to the uploader, who has seen several vehicles on the assembly line, we’re about to see loads of red Huracans on the streets later this year. Red has been popular with Lamborghini customers ever since the Countach hit the market, so we’re not surprised that customers prefer this specific hue.

As a brief refresher, the Lamborghini Huracan hits the streets with 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque under its hood. All that power hails from a 5.2-liter, V-10 engine and travels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission.

It’s been about two months since the Maserati Alfieri made its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show , but we have yet to see it on the move or revving its V-8 engine. Fortunately that comes to an end today thanks to supercar spotter Marchettino, who caught the Italian beast on tape at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

Besides sitting pretty and winning the Concept Cars category of the show, the Maserati Alfieri also made an impact by flexing its V-8 muscles around Villa d’Este. And while there’s no denying that each Maserati sounds awesome in its own way, we have to admit that the Alfieri tops the entire lineup.

Sure, we haven’t forgotten that this concept car is motivated by the same mill found in the GranTurismo MC Stradale , but the Alfieri’s sexy looks somehow manage to add more drama to that exhaust note.

If you’re as excited as we are, then we must tone things down a bit by reminding you that the said 4.7-liter V-8 engine won’t be used in the production version. According to Maserati’s five-year plan, both the coupe and roadster will come alive with V-6 units under hood, with outputs ranging from 410 to 520 horsepower.

It remains to be seen whether the production Alfieri will sound as sexy as the concept car or not. We’ll probably find out in 2016, when the coupe is scheduled to arrive in showrooms.

We’re pretty much done with the Mustang ’s 50th Anniversary celebrations here in the U.S., but the iconic muscle car is about to get one more birthday party in Europe. The event will occur during the Silverstone Classic in late July, when more than 25 competition-prepped Mustangs take on the famed track in two different races .

To preview the event that we expect to become the world’s largest gathering of race-spec Mustangs on one grid, the folks over at Silverstone Classic have put together a video that pays tribute to the memorable car chase from the "Bullitt" film. Regarded as one of the most influential in movie history, the chase saw a 1968 Mustang driven by Steve McQueen gain on a 1968 Dodge Charger through the streets of Chicago.

Recreated right on the Silverstone track with vehicles that looked similar to those in the movie, the scene is a worthy replica of the "Bullitt" scene with all the drifting and the V-8 revving. It all comes to an abrupt halt near the end, when the Charger "blows up" in a poorly rendered crash. At least they didn’t wreck a perfectly restored classic.

If you’re planning on traveling to Britain for the Mustang races, this year’s Silverstone Classic is scheduled between July 25th through 27th.

You know how our smartphones and tablets always needs to have distinctive-looking cases that make them stand out from our friends’ gadgets. It’s not just with phones and tablets. The same also holds true for surfboards, wallets, or really anything that we can attach our personalities, too.

In some respects, car customization has also been around for a long time. But while it always used to be in the hands of the automaker or tuners to customize our cars for us, StickOut is offering all of us a chance to do the customization ourselves.

Is all goes well with the company’s Kickstarter fundraising campaign, all we will need to do is go to its website and we are in charge of the design, color, and layout of our very own customization plan for our car. It’s an idea that’s been around for a while but not to the extent where we’re left to our own devices to imprint our personalities into our rides.

It’s a fascinating thing to check out, especially if you’re the type who’s down for dressing up your own ride to fit your personality. Do check out the video and hop on to their site if you think it’s worth looking into.

Check out more videos from the company after the jump.

Now that the gorgeous F-Type is out burning tires and spitting flames from its throaty exhaust, Jaguar has two things on its mind: launch the C-X17 crossover and give the BMW 3 Series a run for its money with the XE sedan .

The Brits are elbows deep in the two project and they’ve been spotted getting busy at the Nurburgring track quite often lately. The XE sedan , for instance, showed up on the Nordschleife just a couple of days ago , wearing enough camouflage to keep all the details out of sight.

While our recent spy shots haven’t been as revealing as we’d hoped, the folks over at TouriClips have managed to capture some video footage of the sedan . Of course, that nasty camouflage is still in the way, but we can now see the vehicle in action on the ’Ring and more importantly, hear its 3.0-liter, V-6 engine roar.

There’s no hint as to how many horses are teaming up for that noise, but we’re prepared for at least 340 ponies, the same amount powering the base F-Type , the vehicle donating the unit. But we wouldn’t surprised to see the XE launch with more than 400 horsepower in higher trim levels, which would put it above the BMW M3.

The new sedan will break cover sometime next year, so make sure you stay tuned to TopSpeed for more details.

Watching the Ferrari LaFerrari smoke its tires on a race track never gets old. Sometimes, all you have to do is sit back and watch because seeing it mesmerizes you. That was the case in this video when the folks over at Top Gear Magazine were given a chance to take the LaFerrari out for a spin.

It may not be as interesting without the always entertaining comments of Jeremy Clarkson while he sits behind the wheel and starts bloviating about how mental the LaFerrari is, but the video is still worth checking out.

It’s not too often we get to see the mighty Ferrari supercar get pushed to the limit like it was in this video so you can appreciate the fact that while this supercar costs over seven digits, people can still channel that beast within and unleash it out in its natural elements.

NBC Sports just got more exciting as the network announces it’s adding the automotive YouTube sensation Drive to its Saturday morning lineup. That’s right, our friends Matt Farah, Chris Harris, and Mike Spinelli are taking their Internet show to the big time.

Drive on NBC Sports is scheduled for a 10-episide run with the pilot episode airing May 24th at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. The first show will be all about the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix F1 race and features the gang driving a McLaren 650S , a Ferrari F12 , and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG through the streets of Monaco.

Episodes of Drive will still air on YouTube, though likely without the large budget granted by NBC. We’re looking forward to another great auto-based show coming on TV and we hope NBC extends the 10-episode contract to a more continual basis. If the trio host a show that as good as their YouTube routines, it’s hard to imagine the TV show not being a hit.

We’ve all done it — taken a wrong turn just to follow a Lamborghini or Porsche, just for a few more seconds of staring at its beautiful exterior and listening to its engine’s exhaust with our windows down. To see a rare car on the road is well, rare, but Tim Burton of Shmee150 got the chance to follow the LaFerrari, the latest in ultimate hypercar eye candy from Ferrari.

What’s more, Burton‘s vantage point happen to be a new F-Type R Coupe on loan from Jaguar as a group of motoring enthusiast traveled around the Italian countryside celebrating the Mille Miglia road rally .

In the video above, the LaFerrari mostly shows off its posterior as the line of cars wind up the curvy roads. Towards the end, however, the privileged driver of the Ferrari decided to pull a dumb and dangerous U-turn just shy of a corner on a two-lane road. While the move was questionable, it affords us the chance as candid video of the car’s side and front.

Though the LaFerrari has been out for nearly a year now, videos of sightings are still rare thanks to a 499-unit production run. That’s a sad limit for such a limitless performance car. Power comes from a 6.3-liter V-12 and two electric motors all packaged together in a 963-horsepower combination. With a 0-to-62-mph time of fewer than three seconds and a top speed of 217.48 mph, the LaFerrari is one of the best performers currently in production.

In all the years that Porsche has been around, it has created a handful of iconic models that, to this day, enthusiasts still revere suiting their legendary status. On the flip side, there are also some Porsche models that don’t get the same amount of love and admiration that they deserve. One model that belongs in the latter category is the 1970 Porsche 914-6 , a mid-engine, two-seat roadster that Volkswagen and Porsche collaboratively designed and built from 1969 to 1976 .

In its latest episode, Petrolicious ran a profile on the "forgotten" Porsche and Jack Griffin, one of the few men who own the 914-6.

It’s easy to overlook the 914-6 given the other models Porsche has developed that have gained more esteem. But there still lies an appeal for a sports car that not only performs like a Porsche, but looks unique enough for Porsche faithful to consider it an outcast model to all other Porsches built before and after its arrival.

For his part, Griffin has developed a certain affinity and attachment to his 914-6, largely because of the way others have ignored the model throughout the years. It’s still a Porsche, after all, and as far as this particular 914-6 is concerned, a powerful one at that.

The 914-6 was one of the fastest Porsches of its time, having later evolved into a race car when the 914-6 GT arrived in 1969.

Most people will name the 911 as the most iconic Porsche model of all time, and there’s no use arguing against that notion. But don’t forget models like the 914-6, which carved out a following of its own that, as Griffin proves, persists to this day.

The Bloodhound SSC isn’t so much a car as it is a literal rocket on four wheels. It does, after all, come with a Rolls-Royce -sourced EJ200 engine that’s complemented by a Cosworth F1 engine. Together, the two powertrains deliver up to 135,000 equivalent horsepower, which as you can see, is absolutely mental. So with that much power in tow, it’s equally important to have some pretty strong brakes to make it stop when need be.

In this video, Brian Coombs, the lead engineer of mechanical design of the Bloodhound team, discusses the kind of brakes needed to be able to properly stop a car going 1,000 mph. At first, carbon rotors taken from a fighter aircraft were used to see if it were up to the task of slowing down the Bloodhound, let alone stopping it.

Unfortunately, they proved to be really futile, forcing the team to look at other measures on how it could get enough braking power to handle spinning at 10,000 rpm.

It’s interesting to see how the team managed to find its way around this problem. Check out the video above to see what material they actually used and the level of testing done to ensure that it didn’t break down like those carbon rotors.
