Lambo Is Teasing a New Model for July 8, But What Is It?

Lambo Is Teasing a New Model for July 8, But What Is It?

This could be a new version of the Lamborghini Sian

For a long while now, Lamborghini has been pretty happy with a two-car lineup. We had the Gallardo and Murcielago pair until around a decade ago, and now the Italians are relying on the Huracan and Aventador. But things are started to change as Lamborghini introduced a third model in 2019. It’s called the Sian FKP 37, and it’s also the company’s first hybrid. Come July 8, only two days from now, and Lambo will launch a new model. We don’t know what it is for now, but we have a couple of teasers to do the guessing game.

Maserati's “All-New” MC20-Bound Nettuno V-6 Engine Is Shrouded in Lies and Deceit

Maserati’s “All-New” MC20-Bound Nettuno V-6 Engine Is Shrouded in Lies and Deceit

It looks like there’s some Ferrari and Alfa Romeo DNA in Maserati’s Nettuno engine after all

For years, Maserati has been buying engines from Ferrari to power its cars. It wasn’t a bad arrangement at all, really, but that’s also why the recent news that it was building its own all-new engine – known as the Nettuno V-6 – in house was such a big deal. It’s finally starting to look like Maserati is staking its own independence from Maranello, but now, it looks like the Nettuno engine isn’t as all-new as Maserati led us all to believe.

There's a $3.4 Million Lamborghini Yacht With a 4,000 Horsepower 24-Cylinder Engine

There’s a $3.4 Million Lamborghini Yacht With a 4,000 Horsepower 24-Cylinder Engine

This Lamborghini yacht packs 4,000 horsepower from two diesel V-12 engines

Lamborghini may be famous for its V-12-powered supercars, but the Italian company started out as a tractor manufacturer. What’s more, Lamborghini also includes a division that produces 8.2-liter V-12 marine engines for powerboats and many luxury runabouts and small yachts, like those built by Riva, are powered by Lambo engines.

So it’s not surprising to see high-performance yachts pop-out from time to time with a Lamborghini mill under the "hood." One such example is the Tecnomar 63, a luxury yacht designed and built by the Italian Sea Group and Tacnomar for Lamborghini. It’s inspired by the company’s road cars, it features massive Lambo power, and it’s incredibly expensive.

Is the 1935 Auburn Eight Supercharged Speedster the most beautiful car ever made?

Bugatti Could Be Neck Deep In Building a One-Off Chiron Roadster

Bugatti Could Be Neck Deep In Building a One-Off Chiron Roadster

The Bugatti Chiron Roadster could be a one-off supercar priced at more than $10 million

Unlike the Bugatti Veyron, the Chiron has yet to spawn a targa version. The Chiron is already four years into its life cycle and it seems a bit unlikely that Bugatti will build a roadster, but a new report claims that the French firm is developing one as we speak. But unlike the Veyron Grand Sport, the Chiron roadster will be a one-off model.

McLaren Just Trademarked The "Sabre" Name - Does It Mean a McLaren P1 Successor Is Finally Coming?

McLaren Just Trademarked The "Sabre" Name - Does It Mean a McLaren P1 Successor Is Finally Coming?

The McLaren Sabre could be a wild supercar; or nothing at all

British automaker McLaren just filed a trademark with the United States Trademark and Patent Office for the "Sabre" name. And it’s intriguing to say the least, because McLaren hasn’t announced a new model recently and we haven’t seen any prototypes either.

What’s more, the rumor mill contains no information whatsoever about such a model. However, this new trademark, first discovered by GT Nation, fuels new rumors that the Sabre name could be used for a spiritual successor to the P1.

This Video Will (Probably) Teach You Everything You Need To Know About The McLaren F1 GTR Longtail

This is the ultimate incarnation of the iconic McLaren F1

The McLaren F1 is a legend. It’s probably the most legendary car from the 1990s, and its iconic status surpasses that of many older classics. When it arrived in 1992, it was the most revolutionary production model on the market. It was made from carbon-fiber, it features a three-seat layout with the driver’s seat in the center and smart packaging for luggage. On top of that, it was powerful and fast thanks to a V-12 engine designed by BMW. This car was so potent that it managed to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans with minor modifications. As if that wasn’t enough, McLaren built even more extreme versions of the F1, like the LM, GT, and GTR. The GTR Longtailwas just featured by YouTube channel TheSupercarDriver, and it teaches you everything you need to know about it.

If the Bugatti EB110 Was Front-Engined, It Would Look Like a Corvette

If the Bugatti EB110 Was Front-Engined, It Would Look Like a Corvette

We’re still waiting for GM to make a quad-turbo Corvette

The Bugatti EB110 was one of the wildest supercars to come out of the ’90s. The use of not one, not, two, but four turbochargers never made any sense but, under the leadership of Romano Artioli, it got made anyway to mark the 110th birthday of Ettore Bugatti.

It was luxurious on the inside and, just like in the case of its peers from McLaren or Ferrari, that ludicrous engine sat behind the driver. But what if that wasn’t the case? What if Don Panoz had revived Bugatti instead? Yasid Design writes alternative history.

A Lamborghini Sian FKP37 Roadster Is In the Works, But Will It Have a Roof?

A roadster version for the Sian will turn up the exclusivity to eleven for the hybrid hypercar

Lamborghini loves to churn out as many derivatives out of its exotic-looking supercars and in a move we honestly didn’t see coming, the Sian FKP37 will return to the limelight as a roadster.

A recent report talks about a Sian Roadster that Lamborghini is currently working on, but other details are pretty much nonexistent.

Here's How The Aston Martin Valkyrie's V-12 Was Born From Just Three Cylinders

Here’s How The Aston Martin Valkyrie’s V-12 Was Born From Just Three Cylinders

The Aston Martin Valkyrie’s V-12 really can be traced back to a simple, efficient three-cylinder engine

With the world on the verge of receiving two V-12 hypercars (the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Gordon Murray T.50), it’s kind of hard to forget that emissions regulations, especially in Europe, make having such things a major pain in the ass. How is it that automakers are still able to pump out V-12 powerplants when the world knows that big engines are inherently dirty? Well, Drivetribe’s Mike Fernie is here to explain to you exactly how the Valkyrie’s V-12 is even possible. Remember how thought that a V-8 was just two four-cylinder engines glued together when you were a child? Well, that’s essentially the case with the Valkyries V-12 – it’s basically four, inline-three engines connected into one unit. There’s a lot more to it and, believe it or not, the Valkyrie’s beast of an engine has an interesting and humble past. Check out the short video below to learn all about it!

Driving a Porsche 917 Is Exiciting, Especially If You Can Do It On Public Roads

Driving a Porsche 917 Is Exiciting, Especially If You Can Do It On Public Roads

Low enough to drive underneath a semi, for real

The Porsche 917 marked Porsche’s breakthrough in sports car endurance racing. While well accustomed to victory in some of the world’s most famous races, it wasn’t until the 917 took to the track that Porsche was truly able to have a say in the battle at the front at Le Mans.

The car you see here is almost identical to those that won at La Sarthe and it even wears the legendary Martini & Rossi war paint but, unlike most other 917s, this one can be driven on the open road. If you dare.

This Guy's Reaction to Driving the Rimac C Two Is Priceless

This Guy’s Reaction to Driving the Rimac C Two Is Priceless

A car that makes you cry tears of joy? Sign us up right now!

The Rimac C_Two was supposed to make its official debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. The coronavirus, of course, had other plans, and the event got cancelled altogether, so Rimac had to postpone the launch.

It’s been a race against the clock to get the C_Two up and running for its supposed debut in March, and seeing Misha Charoudin driving the car and getting this sort of emotions from it got us thinking that Rimac might have outdone itself with the C_Two.
