Can’t Afford a McLaren Senna? Here’s a cool Lego you can buy

It comes with a wind tunnel too

I’m pretty sure everyone reading TopSpeed loves the McLaren Senna. Unfortunately, most of us can’t afford one. The good news is that we can find plenty of miniature replicas that we can afford and Lego just added another mini Senna to the list.

Watch the McLaren P1 Tickle Its Own Top Speed

Watch the McLaren P1 Tickle Its Own Top Speed

This is what 900 hybrid ponies can do flat out

Although its almost six years old at this point, the 2014 McLaren P1 is still an absolute beast. As one of the original members of the hybrid hypercar holy trinity, the P1’s spaceship-like demeanor commands respect no matter what the crowd may be. Properly motivated, this English monster can throw itself at the horizon with shocking alacrity, as evidenced by this new top speed run that recently posted to YouTube.

You’ll be Shocked When You Find out Who Geely-Owned Lotus will Soon Compete Against

Geely has owned Lotus since 2017 when it announced big plans now underway

Geely is one of China’s automotive giants, an industrial colossus that owns Volvo, Proton, Lynk & Co, the London Taxi Company and as of 2017 sports car manufacturer Lotus, as well. Its most recent acquisition was made with the intent to turn it into one of the world’s leading maker of sports cars, to rival the likes of Porsche, maybe even Aston Martin and McLaren.

The 2018 Audi PB18 E-Tron Concept Will Go Into Production After All - The Number to Be Built Will Blow your Mind

The 2018 Audi PB18 E-Tron Concept Will Go Into Production After All - The Number to Be Built Will Blow your Mind

The 2018 Audi PB18 E-Tron Wasn’t Meant for Produciton But It’s Going to Happen Anyway

Hold on to whatever it is you’re holding to, folks, because an Audi executive has reportedly confirmed the German automaker’s plan to produce the all-electric PB18 e-tron supercar that we first laid our eyes on at the 2018 Monterey Car Week last August. The mind-blowing electric supercar concept took Monterey by storm, and if reports are true, Audi will build 50 units of the 671-horsepower model. No timetable was mentioned on when we’ll see the production model, but that’s a concern for another time. The important thing is that there’s some momentum within Audi calling for the PB18 e-tron Concept to spawn a production model. That’s more than enough for us to start salivating over what we can expect out of the supercar when that day actually comes.

Teaser Image And Video Preview a New 2019 McLaren 600LT

The Longtail goes topless

It’s been less than a month since McLaren unveiled its latest supercar, the 720S Spider, and the British firm announced the arrival of a new vehicle. This time around it’s based on the 600LT, itself a higher performance variant of the570S. The teasers don’t reveal much, but we’re probably looking at the convertible version of the 600LT.

The Jeep Gladiator Herculean Could Scratch That High-Performance, Off-Road Itch

The Jeep Gladiator Herculean Could Scratch That High-Performance, Off-Road Itch

Should we get excited for this high-performance version, or is the Gladiator enough?

The Jeep Gladiator only made its debut last November, and, figuratively speaking, at least, it’s already churning the rumor mill like a pro. Word has it that a high-performance version of the Gladiator is already being drawn up, and it’s carrying the name of a Greek god and hero that all of us are very familiar with. The high-performance Gladiator is tipped to carry the name “Hercules,” a nod to the mighty Olympian sired by no less than Zeus himself. Though we’re short an official confirmation from Jeep, the Gladiator Hercules would be a fitting name for a brawnier version of Jeep’s all-new pickup.

This 2019 ’Lanborghini’ Urus Needs A Dictionary

We know Urus is an Italian and English is not its native language, but it is unacceptable when this bull comes with a price tag of $230,000

Imagine how frustrating it would be to six-digits on a “Lamborghini” and wind up getting something with Chinese-knockoff Quality? how does a “Lanborghini” sounds? Although it sounds like a silly typo, this is not expected after splurging close to $230,000. The owner of this Lamborghini Urus claims that his brand-new car is plagued with electronic word-botches. And, to top things off, everything got worse after a software update.

Get Up Close and Intimate with the SSC Tuatara - A Car That Could Break the 300-MPH Barrier

Get Up Close and Intimate with the SSC Tuatara - A Car That Could Break the 300-MPH Barrier

Let’s hope it won’t take another seven years to see it in production

The SSC Tuatara is one of those cars that have been in the works for so long that most people have actually forgotten about it. Now, the buzz is going again and, after seeing a prototype on the road in December, we drool over footage of the hypercar sitting still and revving its 5.9-liter, twin-turbocharged, V-8 engine. Let’s hope it will finally be available to buy sometime in 2019, with or without the bragging rights of having broken the 300 mph barrier.

SSC, formerly known as Shelby SuperCars, first unveiled the Tuatara Concept on the lawn of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance back in 2011. Last year, SSC came back with an almost unchanged car which was, actually, the production version. The Tuatara has since made a few more public appearances, and the latest is at a dealer in Connecticut where it was filmed by youtuber WVM3DreamDrives and, frankly, it looks fantastic in that polar white color.

Car for Sale: 2018 McLaren Senna With Just 14 Miles on the Clock

Car for Sale: 2018 McLaren Senna With Just 14 Miles on the Clock

It’s selling for about $380,000 more than the original price tag

McLaren only built 500 Sennas and, as you’d expect, they’re all gone. As part of the company’s Ultimate Series of models, you had to be invited to buy one but, if none of the invitations found their way into your mailbox, now you’ve got a chance to buy one with delivery mileage onboard. The catch? You could have a 5,000+ square-foot house in Florida for the same kind of money.

Unveiled to the general public at last year’s Geneva Auto Show, the Senna is an extreme machine. It’s got to be, though, when you factor in its name, that of the late great Ayrton Senna, one of the best drivers to ever drive in the Formula 1 World Championship. It’s also very rare and the 500th example sold at auction for almost $3 million. Now, though, there’s one up for grabs for considerably less, and it’s just as pristine. If you’re a multi-millionaire, you could say this is a real bargain since prices will only go up for these things in the next few years.

1993 Vector Avtech WX-3 Prototype

The last of the original Vectors

The Vector Avtech WX-3 is the rightful successor of the ludicrous wedge-shaped W8, a car that should’ve built on the buzz created by what many consider to be the first American supercar. However, a hostile takeover prevented the car, in either coupe or roadster guise, from going into production and, now, the two prototypes are up for grabs, reportedly to fund the build of the next Vector.

All 106 examples will be unique

We’ve already admired the new, high-speed McLaren Speedtail at recent auto shows, but owners are getting ready to customize their expensive supercars. Just like the P1, each Speedtail will be unique. To enable buyers to customize their vehicles even more, McLaren just launched three new design collections called Colours & Materials Inspiration Story.

Envisioned by the skilled folks at McLaren Special Operations, these themes add unique and expensive features inside and out. The three themes are called Urbane, Visionary, and Dynamic, and each of them are inspired by specific themes. Let’s have a closer look.

2019 McLaren P1 GTR by McLaren Special Operations

An enthusiastic tribute to Ayrton Senna and his 1988 McLaren MP4/4

A brand-new McLaren P1 GTR has been unveiled and, suitably, it wears the Marlboro livery that once covered the glorious McLaren-Honda MP4/4 that carried Senna to his first world champion crown 30 years ago during arguably the most dominant season ever for Team McLaren.

This new P1 GTR is the result of three years of intense work by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) who’ve worked in close partnership with the customer that requested this one-off machine. It features a more aggressive aero package than the standard P1 GTR, more power thanks to some tweaks to the engine, as well as a bespoke interior with seats borrowed from the McLaren Senna.

The new nitty gritty on one of the most insane road-going engines in the world

Hypercars are getting crazier and crazier with every successive generation, and the new Aston Martin Valkyrie is a perfect example of just how wild the current crop of top-shelf performers truly are. A lot of the Aston’s insanity comes down to the beating mid-ship heart of the machine, and now we’re getting a fresh take on what makes it tick.

All Hail The Pininfarina Battista!

All Hail The Pininfarina Battista!

The hypercar we all know as the PF0 gets named after the man who started Pininfarina

The Pininfarina PF0 is no more. Long live the Pininfarina Battista! That’s the official name Pininfarina’s first-ever production car is taking, and it’s named after the man who started Carrozzeria Pininfarina in the first place, Battista Farina. The Italian automaker announced the car’s official name to go with the promise that the Battista will be the “fastest and most powerful car” ever to come out of Italy. Pininfarina plans to build 150 units of the Battista, allocated evenly — 50 units per region — among the U.S., Europe, and Asian markets. The hypercar is scheduled to make its debut at 2019 Geneva Motor Show before production starts sometime in 2020.

Bah, Humbug: Bugatti's Gone Cold on Doing a Top Speed Run for The Chiron

Bah, Humbug: Bugatti’s Gone Cold on Doing a Top Speed Run for The Chiron

It looks like the Koenigsegg Agera RS is going to hold on to its record for a while

The world has been waiting two years for the Bugatti Chiron to post a top speed run. We’ve been teased about it before, but now it looks all that teasing will be for naught. Bugatti has now closed the door on a top speed run for the Chiron. Word of the company’s decision on the issue comes straight from the mouth of CEO Stephen Winkelmann, who said that a top speed run isn’t in any of Bugatti’s priorities at the moment. Whether that position holds true or changes remains to be seen, but if you’re looking for a threat to the Koenigsegg Agera RS’ world record top speed of 277.8 mph, that conversation, at least for now, starts and ends with the Hennessey Venom F5. Bugatti’s not joining that party, much to the dismay of everyone.

2019 BMW M8

2019 BMW M8

The first 8 Series with an "M" badge

The BMW 8 Series returned in 2018 after almost 20 years. Developed to replace the 6 Series, the 8 Series is sportier, more modern, and enables BMW to compete against the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. For the first time ever, the 8 Series will be upgraded to M8 specifications by the company’s high-performance division. The M8 will brake cover sometime in 2019.

When BMW introduced the 8 Series back in 1989, it reshaped the full-size luxury segment with a car that was gorgeous, unique, and loaded with innovative features. Discontinued in 1999, the 8 Series returned almost two decades later in 2018. The M8’s arrival will mark a premiere for the nameplate, which didn’t receive the M treatment in the 1990s. Although BMW did make a prototype, it eventually decided that there’s no market for the M8 and the project was scrapped. Times have obviously changed now, and with Mercedes already offering AMG versions of the S-Class Coupe and with Bentley producing the Continental GT Speed for quite a few years now, BMW needs the M8 to keep up with the competition. Find out what we already know about this grand tourer in my speculative review below.

Update 12-7-2018: We’ve updated this speculative review with new leaked images and new information. Check out the Exterior section below for all the new M8 goodness!

Meet the 2018 Koenigsegg KNC Regera, The World's First Naked Carbon Vehicle

Meet the 2018 Koenigsegg KNC Regera, The World’s First Naked Carbon Vehicle

It’s called the Koenigsegg KNC Regera, and it’s the perfect example of technological innovation done right

Koenigsegg is no stranger to technological innovation. It comes as no surprise, then, that the Swedish automaker is at the forefront of naked carbon fiber technology, becoming the first automaker in the world to create a car that’s finished entirely out of naked carbon fiber. Koenigsegg has even created a name for it: Koenigsegg Naked Carbon, or “KNC” for short. By Koenigsegg’s admission, the process of creating KNC took years to come together. What began as applications on wheels, wings, splitters, and steering wheels has evolved into a full-blown treatment on an entire car, which Koenigsegg calls the KNC Regera. The one-off creation isn’t for sale because someone who lives in Switzerland already owns it.

Pininfarina’s PF0 Electric Hypercar Wants To Redefine The Segment

Only 150 units of the PF0 will be made

Pininfarina has been around for 90 years, and in all that time, it has never built its own car. It’s built concepts, and it’s collaborated with other automakers. But a car that’s 100 percent Pininfarina? That’s never happened. That, of course, is about to change next year. Pininfarina will launch its first-ever production vehicle, and as far as firsts go, it’s a doozy. It’s called the Pininfarina PF0, and it’s a 1,900-horsepower electric hypercar that’s looking to snatch your soul.
