2019 McLaren 765LT

2019 McLaren 765LT

The successor to the 675LT is here and it’s better in every aspect

The 2021 McLaren 765LT is the range-topping version of the company’s Super Series family, built around the 720S core model. Essentially a successor to the 675LT, the 2021 765LT is yet another tribute to the McLaren F1 GTR Longtail, a race car fitted with an elongated body for enhanced aerodynamics. The 2021 765LT shares many components with the familiar 720S, but it features a more aggressive aero package with carbon-fiber components, a race-focused interior, and a more powerful engine. As the name suggests, the V-8 engine cranks out 765 PS, which converts to 755 horsepower, 45 more than the regular 720S.

2021 Pininfarina Battista Anniversario

2021 Pininfarina Battista Anniversario

Remember 2019’s Pininfarina Battista? This is its more athletic alter ego

Pininfarina never misses an opportunity to showcase something special at the Geneva Motor Show. It helps that its stand is located right as you come up the stairs from the main hallway, so you can’t really miss its stunning concepts.

Although it was forced to reveal the Battista Anniversario on the world wide web this year, Pininfarina didn’t forget how to make a splash, albeit on our screens and not in the metal.

2021 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0

2021 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0

The naturally aspirated flat-six makes a comeback!

The 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 is a naturally-aspirated version of the existing 718 Boxster. Essentially an update for the current 718 Cayman GTS, the GTS 4.0 ditches the turbocharged, 2.5-liter flat-four engine in favor of a 4.0-liter flat-six mill.

The engine is shared with the range-topping 2020 718 Boxster, but detuned in order to slot the GTS 4.0 lower in the lineup. Unveiled alongside an identical version of the 718 Cayman, the 2021 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 hits the road with 394 horsepower and various suspension components borrowed from the 911 GT3.

The GTS 4.0 also marks the return of the naturally aspirated engine in the 718 Boxster lineup (beyond the Spyder model of course), but it will probably be offered only for a limited time. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

After more than a decade of development, the Tuatara finally goes into production

The 2020 SSC Tuatara is the production version of a supercar that SSC North American has been developing since the late 2000s. Previewed by a concept car in 2011 and a pre-production model in 2018, the 2020 Tuatara is finally ready to go into production in 2020.

Aimed at supercars like the Bugatti Chiron, Koenigsegg Jesko, and the Hennessey Venom F5, the 2020 Tuatara features a V-8 engine that generates up to 1,750 horsepower and promises to hit a top speed in excess of 300 mph. The supercar costs more than $2 million and is limited to only 100 units. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition

2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition

The 2020 Ford GT receives more oomph and visual flair

Big news from FoMoCo on its supercar. It’s still powered by the same 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6, but for the 2020 model year, power goes up from 647 horsepower to 660 horsepower. Torque stays unchanged (550 pound-feet), but it’s now available within a broader band.

1993 Lamborghini Diablo SE 30

1993 Lamborghini Diablo SE 30

Lamborghini’s way of celebrating its 30th anniversary

The Lamborghini Diablo SE 30, where SE stands for Special Edition, was built between 1993 and 1995 to celebrate the 30th anniversary since the Lamborghini company was founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini. Only 150 of these special Diablos were built and less than 30 received the coveted Jota package.

Lamborghini’s only supercar built during the Chrysler ownership years was the Diablo, a model that was conceived to be better in all areas than the Countach which had originally been presented all the way back in 1974. The Diablo featured a rounder design although it was still a wedge shape car in spirit with the same scissor doors that powered the Countach to every child’s bedroom wall in the ’70s and ’80s.

As mighty as the Diablo was, Lamborghini turned the dial to 11 with the SE 30. Designed as an even more purposeful version, it was over 250 pounds lighter than the standard model and hid almost 40 extra ponies under the engine lid. But Lamborghini’s desire to go GT racing in the then-sprawling BPR GT Endurance Series saw them build a number of Jota kits designed to be added to the SE 30. The original purpose of the Jota trans-kit was to transform the Diablo into a turn-key race car, but the majority of the 28 kits built ended up on street-legal cars after all.

2020 Ultima RS

2020 Ultima RS

The ultimate Ultima

Ultima has been making ludicrously fast track-focused supercars for over two decades but this latest one called the RS is the one for the ages. With as much as 1,200 horsepower from a supercharged Chevy-sourced LT5 V-8 and a dry weight of little over 2,000 pounds, the Ultima RS channels everything that was great about Group C prototypes in a package that you can take down to the shops.

The British are famous for building some of their best cars in sheds. Take Morgan, for instance. Or the Lotus 7-inspired Caterham. Ultima is yet another worthy example and, just like Caterham, you can assemble your Ultima in your very own garage if you so desire, all for the price of a "mundane BMW M3," according to the company. Not bad for something that would thrash just about anything at your local track day, right?

2020 Laffite G-Tec X-Road

2020 Laffite G-Tec X-Road

Forget about the Urus drifting on sand, this is a supercar designed to love mud

Remember the Zarooq Sand Racer? You don’t? Well, that’s no biggie, because it died at some point a couple of years ago, but now it’s back under a different name, with a polished attitude.

The Zarooq Sand Racer was supposed to open a new niche, that of off-road supercars. It packed a V-6 good for 300 horsepower and looked like a hybrid between a Dakar rally car and an exotic, but was rather short-lived. This is where the Laffite G-Tec X-Road comes to pick up where the Sand Racer left off.

The 2021 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 was unveiled alongside an identical version of the 718 Boxster. The 2021 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 is expected to hit dealerships for the 2021 model year. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

2020 Lotus Evija

2020 Lotus Evija

The world’s most powerful production car has arrived

The arrival of the Lotus Evija marks a watershed moment for Lotus. It wasn’t that long ago when the British automaker was floundering. It was strapped for cash and it barely produced enough models to thrive in a segment that had no shortage of worthy adversaries. Just when things were taking a turn for the worse, Chinese auto giant Geely came in, bought Lotus, and, well, the rest is history.

The Evija all-electric hypercar is the first Lotus product to be unveiled since its fortunes turned for the better. And what a product it is. The Evija is a technological tour de force, a stunning creation born from technological innovations that trace its roots to motor racing. Everything, and I mean everything, about the Lotus Evija is extraordinary. From its incredible aerodynamic design to the four electric motors and 70-kWh battery pack that feeds them, the Lotus Evija is the pinnacle of all-electric hypercar development. It also happens to be the most powerful production car in the world. All that for $2.1 million? This is no dream, folks. The Lotus Evija has arrived.

2020 Mercedes-AMG A45

2020 Mercedes-AMG A45

The company’s cool hatchback goes wilder than ever!

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 is the range-topping version of the fourth-generation A-Class hatchback. Unveiled in 2019, it slots above the AMG A35 in the range thanks to a more powerful engine, a more aggressive exterior, and extra equipment on the inside. Powered by a redesigned version of the AMG-tuned four-cylinder engine that cranks out 382 horsepower, the 2020 AMG A45 is the most powerful A-Class to date. But for the first time ever, Mercedes-Benz introduced an S-badged version of the hatchback, with even more power. In this tune, the AMG A45 delivers an amazing 416 horses, more than any other hot-hatch on the market as of 2020. This four-cylinder is also the most powerful of its kind in production, as well as the engine with the highest horsepower per liter. Let’s find out more about the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 in the comprehensive review below.

2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo

2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo

A mid-cycle facelift with aggressive looks and more power

The Lamborghini Huracan Evo is the mid-cycle facelift of the company’s entry-level supercar. Although it’s described as a new-generation model, it’s exactly what the name says, an evolution of the nameplate. It was introduced in early 2019, almost five years after the Huracan went into production.

Design-wise, the Evo is based on the higher performance Huracan Performante. It features more aggressive front and rear ends, as well as a bespoke set of wheels. Inside the cabin, there’s an infotainment system with a big touchscreen, while motivation comes from the beefed-up engine from the Performante. While it won’t set a new Nurburgring record, the Evo is notably quicker than its predecessor. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

Update 1/6/2019: Lamborghini has announced a new RWD version of the Huracan EVO that is designed specifically to offer a “more engaging experience” for the driver. Check out what’s new along with pricing in our special section below
