Don't Wait Too Long to Buy a New Aston Martin Vantage or DB11

Don’t Wait Too Long to Buy a New Aston Martin Vantage or DB11

Aston Martin plans mass electrification of its models by 2030, and it starts in 2025

Quite recently, we talked about the 2022 revisions for the Aston Martin DB11, which aim to simplify the model’s lineup, in order to make room for a future EV version. With that being said, we now know with certainty that Aston Martin’s internal combustion engine days are numbered, as the next-generation Vantage and DB11 will be fully electric. Tobias Moers – Aston Martin CEO – confirmed it in an interview with Automotive News Europe. "The succession of our traditional sports segment has to be full electric, no doubt", Moers said.

2022 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II

Audi’s LMS GT3 track-only car comes in a new Evo II spec with a redesigned air intake and a new rear wing amongst other upgrades

Audi’s R8 track-only lineup is getting bigger and better. The R8 LMS has 83 driver titles and 106 additional championship victories under its belt already. To make sure this record only gets better in the future, the company has come up with an Evo II iteration of the LMS GT3. It features a new wing, a redesigned air intake, and an upgraded suspension setup amongst other things. It breaches the half-a-million-dollar mark after price conversion.

Take a Nice Tour of the Koenigsegg Jesko Before Seeing It Exercise Its Grunt

Take a Nice Tour of the Koenigsegg Jesko Before Seeing It Exercise Its Grunt

Christian von Koenigsegg gives us a detailed look into the pre-production Koenigsegg Jesko

Hypercars are at the top of the automotive food chain. They have the best drivetrains, the most advanced tech, and are the most capable. The Koenigsegg Jesko is one of the latest and best examples of that. And although most of us will not be able to afford one, we can at least watch in awe as Koenigsegg founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg, gives us a tour around the pre-production Jesko before engaging in some spirited driving.

Tang Orange Pearl Is The Right Color For the Koenigsegg Jesko

Tang Orange Pearl Is The Right Color For the Koenigsegg Jesko

This pre-production Koenigsegg Jesko scores a unique orange Finish that pays tribute to the CCR

I think we can all agree that certain cars are made for a certain color. When it comes to super-fast high-performance machines, there are usually two ways to go about it. Either go for a dark and sinister look (think of the Koenigsegg Thor and Vader models of the Agera) or you can go with a very bright, visible from 10 miles, exterior finish, which is exactly the case here. What we are looking at is a rare pre-production version of the Koenigsegg Jesko, finished in Tang Orange Pearl, with silver and carbon-fiber elements. This is actually a homage to the Koenigsegg CCR, which back in 2004, featured the exact same color scheme.

Watch The Rimac Nevera Go For The Kill Against The Porsche Taycan And The BMW M5

Watch The Rimac Nevera Go For The Kill Against The Porsche Taycan And The BMW M5

The Nevera makes more power than the Taycan and M5… combined!

Rimac unveiled the production form of C_Two concept last month. Christened with the name ‘Nevera’, this electric hypercar debuted with jaw-dropping specs. Stuff like 1,900 horses from a quad-motor setup, 0-60 mph in 1.85 seconds, etc. were the best for any production car. It came with a heavy price tag, too, costing around $2.5 million after currency conversion.

A car with these specs can’t be a match to any production car (Tesla Model S Plaid being the closest, but not better), but the folks at Carwow still decided to pit it against two German sprint runners – the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the BMW M5 Competition. Do you think either of them can walk out of this race with any shred of dignity left?

A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie's Debut Run At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie’s Debut Run At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Aston Martin Valkyrie suffered stage fright and stopped working during its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

A Cosworth-built 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V-12, 11,000 RPM, hybrid powertrain, 1,160 horsepower (865 kilowatts). Those are just some of the astonishing numbers of the $3.0+ million Aston Martin Valkyrie. The car is able to hit 60 mph (97 km/h) in under 3.0 seconds and only 150 units will be produced with deliveries starting in September. Moreover, there is an even rarer Valkyrie AMR Pro, limited to just 40 units. Nevertheless, the Valkyrie’s debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed turned out to be less than glamorous, as the car had an unexpected malfunction during the hill climb.

Lamborghini is celebrating one of its most definitive models as the Countach turns 50

Lamborghini, as a carmaker, had an interesting start. We won’t go into the details, as we are sure most of you are familiar with Lamborghini’s automotive history. What you may have forgotten is that, in 1971, one of the most significant cars Lamborghini has ever made came out, and now, it’s celebrating its 50th anniversary. Sant’Agata Bolognese has launched a series of four videos on its social media channels. Every Monday, a video will commemorate the mid-engine supercar, by featuring inspirational personalities, involved in its development. The first one features the designer himself – Marcelo Gandini.

Watch A Tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S Obliterate A Lamborghini Aventador SV and A Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti On The Drag Strip

The tuned 911 Turbo S shows no mercy to the 488 Pista Piloti and the Aventador SV in a series of straight-line races

The team at Carwow brought three fast cars to the drag strip. The contenders include the Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti, the Lamborghini Aventador SV, and a Porsche 911 Turbo S. The Pista Piloti and Aventador SV make more power than the Porsche in the standard form, but the latter is tuned to make 150 horses more for a Hulk-like transformation. Courtesy of this, it absolutely annihilates both the 700+ horsepower cars in a series of drag races! How often do you see a Ferrari and a Lamborghini get treated with such utter disdain?

North Americans Just Can’t Get Enough Bugatti It Seems

North America is now Bugatti’s biggest market, knocking Europe down a peg and hinting at a new sales record in 2021

Historically, Bugatti’s biggest market has been Europe, which really isn’t surprising for a French automaker with a German parent company – Volkswagen AG. This year, however, things have changed, and – as it turns out – North Americans really, really like Bugatti these days. So much so, that North America is now the region leading sales for Bugatti.

Not content with producing a bike powered by electricity, White Motorcycle Concepts is redefining motorcycle aerodynamics as well. The radical new design channels air through the bike, rather than trying to push it aside and, in the process, increases downforce without increasing drag. Electric motors in the front wheel mean it’s two-wheel drive and can recharge the batteries through regenerative braking.

Watch A Ferrari F40 Drift Like A Champ On A Dirt Course

The owner of this Ferrari F40 doesn’t mind getting his car some sideways action on loose sand

TheTFJJ uploaded a video on its YouTube channel that shows a few supercars assembled around a dirt course for a meet-and-greet. It doesn’t make sense for low-slung, super-expensive supercars that are meant for tarmac to meet on loose sand and gravel, unless, some crazy shi* is about to go down.

The supercar ensemble includes big names like the Porsche 918 Spider, a Bugatti Veyron, and a Ferrari 599 GTO. But, one that caught our attention was a drool-worthy Ferrari F40 that created havoc. The owner of the car let it loose and went drifting around the dirt circuit like it was an everyday affair. The owner’s got some ba…, err, some guts to manhandle a beast like this in what’s not the F40 natural habitat.

In late June, a new extreme variant of the Aston Martin Valkyrie was leaked online. To put all the speculation to rest, the British sportscar maker rushed to formally unveil the Valkyrie AMR Pro. It features Formula 1 technology and was built through a collaboration with RedBull with the goal of making a record-breaking run at Le Mans.

The 10 Fastest Cars in the World Ranked

The 10 Fastest Cars in the World Ranked

Of all the cars in the world, only one has a verified top speed record above 300 mph

The first production car with a recorded speed was the 1894 Benz Velo that had a top speed of just 12 mph. Few verified records exist from that point until around 1950, when the Jaguar XK120 set a production car speed record of 124.6 mph (not to be confused with the tuned prototype that managed to hit 133 mph) From this point on, it became a trend for automotive publications to do their own top speed test. Even the venerable McLaren F1 was tested by Car & Driver, and in 2005 we got our first government-official speed record set by the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 and verified by German inspection officials in 2005. It was that moment when the official challenge between manufacturers kicked off, and since then there have only been a handful of cars up to breaking the record. This list covers the top 10 fastest cars in the world, ranked from slowest to fastest.

Bugatti is using 100 different sensors to measure and record data as it makes the final adjustments to the Chiron Super Sport

We can all agree that the Bugatti Chiron and all of its derivatives are engineering feats. The Chiron has been around for a while and has pretty much set the benchmark for the luxury hypercar. However, the even more insane Chiron SuperSport is now in its final stages of development and engineers are working to perfect the recipe. The Chiron’s incredible hardware, be it the suspension, chassis, engine, or aerodynamics, all work together to achieve maximum efficiency. In order for them to perfectly work together, engineers are enhancing the software suite of the mighty Chiron.

Volkswagen Debates Bugatti’s Fate As the Pressure of Electrification Rises

Bugatti might become a Hyper EV carmaker under Rimac’s ownership, but a deal needs to be made first!

Recently, a new consortium offered close to $9.2 billion in order to buy Lamborghini off VAG. Theoffer was turned down and a new offer was made. That offer, too, was apparently turned down, but that doesn’t mean the German concern is not in the midst of deciding what to do with its assets. Bugatti has enjoyed a good run under VAG ownership and the French manufacturer continues to come up with limited editions based on the Chiron. With that being said, it appears not all is as good as it looks on the outside. Volkswagen Audi Group is currently debating on whether Bugatti should continue to be a part of the company’s portfolio or not and a certain Croatian manufacturer might take the opportunity.
