Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun!

Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun!

Build the super SUV of your dreams!

Launched in December 2017, the Lamborghini Urus is as fresh as they get. And it’s quite impressive too. Not only the first SUV made by Lambo (the LM002 was a pickup truck) and the company’s first turbocharged production model, the Urus is also the world’s fastest crossover, boasting a top speed of 190 mph. Mind-boggling to say the least! It’s also pretty quick as well, needing only 3.6 seconds to hit 62 mph. That’s quickest than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S! Finally, it’s the most powerful production SUV, besting the Bentley Bentayga by a whopping 50 horsepower. But it’s also very expensive at $200,000, not counting the many options you can have. Speaking of which, Lamborghini just fired up the vehicle’s online configurator, so if you’re planning to place an order, you can choose your options in just a few minutes.

The configurator doesn’t give access to pricing, but it lists every single option available. This is actually something new, as previous configurators had scarce information and you had to go to a dealer to find out more. Now you can go beyond the usual exterior colors and interior upholstery and pick between various trims, carpets, contrast stitching, and a ton of technology and convenience features. It’s actually a nice way to spend a few minutes on this car even if you don’t have over $200K in your bank account.

The Rezvani Tank Can Get Crazy Expensive!

The Rezvani Tank Can Get Crazy Expensive!

Yet under that tough skin is a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited…

You probably remember the Rezvani Tank, the modified Jeep Wrangler Unlimited put together by this California-based company known for high-performance supercars. We brought news of the Tank back in early October, including its $178,000 starting price. Well, Rezvani has launched its online configurator for the tank, complete with outlandish options like three levels of bulletproofing and hand-stitched leather floor mats. Well, it turns out the Tank can get a whole lot more expensive than we originally thought.

The 2018 Rezvani Tank can cost upwards of $305,000!

That’s right – this Wrangler-turned-monster can cost more than a quarter-million dollars. So, what jacks the price up? Quite a bit, actually. Let’s tear down the build sheet and see what options Rezvani is offering. It’s actually pretty interesting. But for starters, remember this Wrangler has been fitted with a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 making near 500 horsepower and rides on upgraded axles with beefier suspension parts and 37-inch mud-terrain tires.

Configure the Bentley Continental GT of Your Dreams

Configure the Bentley Continental GT of Your Dreams

Have fun with the hottest luxury grand tourer you can buy in 2017

After nearly seven years on the market, the second-generation Continental GT is getting ready to enter the history books and make way for a redesigned grand tourer. Built on a new platform and with a much lighter aluminum body, the third-gen Conti GT also brings new technology and a revised drivetrain into dealerships. And as it is the case with all new Bentley products, it features new technology and a large amount of new luxury items. There’s new wood veneer, new display, and a rotating infotainment screen, just a name a few, on top of the state-of-the-art interior design and the powerful W-12 engine.

The new grand tourer has yet to make a proper auto show debut, which is scheduled to take place at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, but Bentley has already launched an online configurator for the car. There aren’t any prices available and you can’t browse through all the Mulliner options, but it has what it takes to help you create your next Continental GT. And if you can’t afford one, it’s an entertaining way to play with all the color, upholstery, and equipment options you can get in one of the most luxurious vehicles available as of 2017. Check it out below.

You Can Now Configure The Rolls-Royce Phantom Of Your Dreams

You Can Now Configure The Rolls-Royce Phantom Of Your Dreams

I played around with Rolls-Royce’s new online configurator for the next-gen Phantom and this is what came out of it

Online configurators are a beautiful thing. They serve a variety of functions for a variety of people. Those who have the finances to actually buy the things they create in these configurators can get really personal with their soon-to-be prized acquisitions. But for the rest of us, online configurators are about the closest thing we can have to our very own models without actually paying for them in the end. This is important because Rolls-Royce just launched an online configurator for the all-new, eighth-generation Phantom luxury sedan, and as you can expect, I went crazy with it.

While it’s true that there are certain elements about the all-new Phantom that will be consistent among all models – the bespoke all-aluminum platform and the equally new twin-turbo 6.75-liter V-12 engine being two of them – the rest of it is up to the buyer’s imagination. The automaker did say that when it comes to the new Phantom, you don’t end up buying one; you commission one. Notwithstanding the sentiment that Rolls’ position is far easier said than done, the new online configurator does give us the freedom to personalize our very own Phantoms the way we see fit. Nothing is going to come out of it other than personal gratification, but it is a very cool and exciting exercise nonetheless. In light of that, I went ahead and played around with the online configurator, the results of which you can see below.

Configure the Porsche 911 GT2 RS you can't afford

Configure the Porsche 911 GT2 RS you can’t afford

You can’t buy it anyway, because it’s sold out!

Expected to make a comeback after five years, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS returned to the market at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It took an unofficial unveiling at a tech show and numerous reports about its performance, but it’s finally here. And as it usually happens, the official launch came with a new online configurator. Sure, I could argue that the limited-edition GT2 RS is already sold out and the configurator is pretty much useless now, but we can at least have some fun with it.

Options are very similar to the 911 GT3, meaning you can customize a lot of features, both inside and out. You can also add performance-enhancing parts, as well as opt for Porsche’s already iconic Delivery Experience program, which delivers the car to Atlanta in the U.S. and Zuffenhausen or Leipzig in Germany. So whether you’ve already ordered your GT2 RS or you just want to build the dream car you can’t afford, let’s have a closer look at the features.

The Lambo Huracan Performante Comes in All Sorts of Awesome Colors

The Lambo Huracan Performante Comes in All Sorts of Awesome Colors

Use the configurator to create your own!

If you love high-performance cars and racing (how can you not?), you’re probably dreaming about lapping the Nurburgring track in the incredible Lamborghini Huracan Performante right now. However, unless you have a fat wallet and have already placed an order, you’ll never have the chance to do that. Let’s face it, the Performante is awfully expensive for the average Joe and it’s probably sold out anyway. Fortunately, you can still design the Performante of your dreams in the online configurator and its absolutely free.

The configurator is pretty straight forward and doesn’t include too many options beyond the usual exterior and performance upgrades, but the number of exterior colors available is impressive. There are two solid colors and five metallic hues, mostly white, black, and gray. But go with the Pearl Effect range and you can get the stunning Giallo Inti, Arancio Borealis, and Verde Mantis. Beyond that, there’s a rage of custom Ad Personam finishes, including matte, solid, metallic, and pearl. Interesting choices include Giallo Horus, Verde Scandal, Viola Ophelia, Oro Elios, Blu Cepheus, and Viola SE 30th. The latter is based on the color that Lambo launched for the Diablo SE30 Jota back in the 1990s.

Naturally, all these colors are paired to the green-white-red Italian "tricolore" above the side skirts and the dark-colored "forged composite" elements such as the side skirts, diffuser, and front splitter.

Next up, you need to pick the color for the carbon-ceramic brakes, and you can choose between six caliper finishes. There’s black, green, orange, red, silver, and yellow, each providing interesting contrasts with several body colors. Since I "painted" my Performante in Verde Mantis, I went with red calipers, since red and green are complementary colors.

As soon as you finish up the calipers, the configurator moves on to the rims. All wheels measure 20 inches, but there are three design with various finishes. The double-five-spoke rims are called Mimas and can be had in either silver, gloss black or matte titanium. The multi-spoke Narvi wheels are available in either high-sheen black or bronze, while the five-spoke, forged Loge wheels are black and come with either black or red center locking nut. The latter seems to go well with the red calipers on my build.

The configurator then moves onto technology, where you can choose whether you want a sensor or sensor plus camera for park assistance. You can also select the Style Package, which adds darker exhaust pipes among other features.

You Can Now Configure The Porsche 911 GT3 Of Your Dreams

You Can Now Configure The Porsche 911 GT3 Of Your Dreams

Go wild!

Priced from $143,600 before options and delivery, the Porsche 911 GT3 isn’t exactly an affordable sports car. But, even though most of us can’t afford one, it doesn’t mean we can’t dream about taking a GT3 home some day. And the configurator for the new 911 GT3 is here to encourage you to do just that by designing the sports car of your dreams.

Although not as customizable as other high-profile supercars, the new 911 GT3 comes with plenty of options inside and out. The exterior can now be ordered in several colors, including the Lava Orange that Porsche introduced on the GT3 RS and Miami Blue, a light shade of blue with a hint of turquoise. These colors, alongside the familiar Carmine Red and Chalk, are the most expensive, being priced from $4,220. The metallic range, which includes seven options, including Graphite Blue and Sapphire blue, costs $720. If you’re looking to save some cash, you can go with the four, no-cost standard colors - black, white, Guards Red, and Racing Yellow.

Moving over to wheels, the 911 GT3 is restricted to a set of 20-inch, double-twin-spoke rims. However, they can be finished in either satin aluminum, satin platinum, satin black, and satin black with a Guards Red outer lip. These options cost $1,220, while the red lip adds another $700.

More customization is possible via Porsche Exclusive, which offers a range of exterior options such as painted logos and lettering, black headlamps with PDLS, body-colored side skirts, gloss black door handles and lower mirror caps, carbon-fiber upper mirror caps, and aluminum look fuel cap. The black headlamps are the most expensive at $2,900, while the carbon mirrors fetch $1,420.

You Can Now Configure The Pagani Huayra Roadster Of Your Dreams

You Can Now Configure The Pagani Huayra Roadster Of Your Dreams

This is the closest thing you’ll ever come to owning your own Huayra Roadster

As expected, the Pagani Huayra Roadster made a heck of an impression at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It came with a revised design that featured, among other things, a new fascia, two removable roof panels, and nacelles behind each seat. It also featured a Mercedes-AMG-sourced 6.0-liter biturbo V-12 engine that pumps out 752 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. Most of all, even with the Roadster configuration, it still managed to shed off 176 pounds compared to the coupe, thanks in large part to the abundance of carbon fiber and titanium used in the car. Knowing all of this makes the Huayra Roadster a must-have supercar. And no more is that true than with Pagani’s claim that all 100 units of the supercar are already spoken for, leaving the rest of us peasants with nothing more than an online configurator to turn our dreams of owning one into (virtual) reality.

On the contrary, the online configurator is actually a very good thing, because not a lot of us have $2.4 million to spend on the car. Luckily the alternative is rather fun, especially since it costs about as much as the oxygen that you’re inhaling right now.

Like most online configurators, the one for the Huayra Roadster is easy to navigate. You can pick from as many as 20 different color schemes, each having its own appeal. There’s also a choice of four different wheels and three interior trims, all of which you can mix and match to create the Huayra Roadster of your dreams.

Apparently, Pagani even keeps track of those who play with the online configurator, ranking the combinations that were used depending on popularity. At the moment, everybody seems to be on the hook for the Blu Francia-colored Huayra Roadster, which occupies the top four spots in the leaderboard of sorts. That’s hardly a surprising turn of events because it’s the same color Pagani used on the press shots of the supercar. The top combination not only makes use of the Blue Francia paint, but it also comes with Transparent Black Mamba gloss exterior, Black alloy wheels, and a Black interior trim.

Are you in favor of this combination for the Huayra Roadster, or are you digging the convertible supercar in another garb? Go to the online configurator and find out.

You Can Build your Dream McLaren 720S Now

You Can Build your Dream McLaren 720S Now

The supercar’s configurator is online and ready to go

The brand-new McLaren 720S, which was just unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, has now received its very own configurator on the company’s website. Yup, it’s time to create your dream supercar!

The configuration begins by selecting the trim. The 720S is available in three versions, with the Luxury and Performance trims receiving additional equipment. As soon as you pick the model, the configurator takes you to the exterior color section. And it really becomes interesting, as the 720S is available in no fewer than 34 colors.

Only five are standard, no-cost paints, including white, blue, silver, McLaren Orange, and Storm Grey. There are seven more hues in the "Special" category, including Aurora Blue, Memphis Red, and Quartz, and eight in the "Elite" class. This one includes a few spectacular choices like Volcaco Yellow, Solis, Azores, and Bourbon. Finally, there’s the "MSO Defined" category with 14 choices, including Papaya Spark, Burton Blue, Polaris BlueLantana Purple, Fistral Blue, and Mauvine Blue.

Next up, you have to pick a set of wheels. Choices include five-twin-spoke sport cast, five-twin-spoke lightweight, and ten-spoke super-lightweight. The base rims are available in either silver or stealth finishes, while the lightweights come in either platinum, titanium liquid metal, or satin diamond cut. The ten-spoke wheels are offered in similar finishes. For calipers, you can pick between eight colors with silver McLaren logo. Pirelli P Zero is the standard choice for tires, but track-ready Corsa rubber is optional.

Other exterior options include a host of carbon-fiber upgrades. You can have several body components in this lightweight material, including the side mirrors, headlamps housings, splitter, front bonnet, engine hood, and diffuser. The same goes for the interior, where you can add carbon-fiber seats and components all around. The only drawback is that the trim is either black or black and Scoria Grey, but you can add a dash of color by selecting orange seat belts. However, MSO will be happy to "paint" the cockpit in any color you want for an extra fee.

When it comes to entertainment, you can pick between the standard four-speaker audio system or the optional, 12-speaker, Bowers & Wilkins unit. The McLaren Telemetry is also available with laptime function and three cameras. There’s a lot to add to the car when it comes to safety too. Options include 360-degree park assist, front & rear parking sensors, rear-view camera, a volumetric alarm upgrade, and a vehicle tracking system. Finally, there’s all sorts of practical things like a car cover, floor mats, fire extinguisher, an ashtray, and a lithium-ion battery charger.

Unfortunately, there’s no pricing for each of these items, so you’ll have to contact a dealer to get a sticker. But I guess it doesn’t matter much when you’re like me, and can’t afford one. Anyway, my dream 720S is finished in Lantana Purple, sports ten-spoke wheels in satin diamond cut and yellow brake calipers, and every carbon-fiber option but the front bonnet. Post your choice and design in the comments section below .

How Would You Configure Your Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio?

How Would You Configure Your Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio?

The original Alfa Romeo Giulia was a boxy little car that was on the market from 1962 to 1978. It took 37 years, and a lot of rumors, but in 2015 Alfa Romeo revived the Giulia name and used it for the first model in its strategic plan to save the Alfa Romeo brand. And the Giulia is a pretty big deal, as it’s not only the revival of an iconic car, but is also the first rear-wheel drive model from the Italian brand since the Milano met its demise back in 1992. As a competitor to the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class, a standard model just wasn’t enough, so Alfa created the high-performance Giulia Quadrifoglio to compete with the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63, among others. Now, Alfa Romeo has brought the Giulia Quadrifoglio to its online configurator so you can make your own custom sedan to drool over until you’re ready to pony up the dough it takes to park one in your driveway.

But, before we get too far into things, don’t expect to see an elaborate amount of options. In fact, there aren’t that many options to choose from at all. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the Giulia Quadrifoglio already comes equipped pretty damn well in standard form, but if you’re like me, you want the absolute best you can get out of a new car. And, that’s exactly how I configured my Giulia Quadrifoglio.

I was initially shooting for a price that topped $100,000, but the options just aren’t there. I did, however, manage to get a sticker price of $87,670 after everything’s said and done, so let’s take a look at a good look at the options I chose.

How High Can You Price Your Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive?

How High Can You Price Your Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive?

This thing can get really, really expensive!

The new Panamera Turbo Executive is a fantastic car in many respects. For starters, it’s the most comfortable Porsche yet thanks to the extra 5.9 inches added to the wheelbase. It’s also the brand’s quickest and most powerful sedan. The twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 under the hood cranks out a whopping 550 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque, enabling the sedan to hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 190 mph. But as exciting as they may sound, these figures come with a number that’s not exactly inspiring. I’m talking about the $160,000 sticker, which makes it more expensive than several full-size, luxury sedans out there.

Granted, it’s not the most expensive Porsche you can buy, but it can get there if you added too many of the company’s pricey options. How expensive can a Panamera Turbo Executive get? I just had a look at the car’s configurator in order to find out.

The expensive options kick in right from the first page, which allows you to customize the exterior. While Porsche offers 10 colors at no cost, if you want the special Carmine Red, Palladium, or Amethyst, you’ll need to spend another $3,300. The wheels aren’t cheap either. Opt for any 21-inch set and it will cost you at least $2,440 and up to $3,915 for the SportDesign wheels painted in exterior color. Other pricey options include the SportDesign package at $5,655 (or $6,075 if selected in black), tinted taillights at $835, and thermal & noise insulated glass at $1,240.

Once inside, you can spend another $530 on the two-tone upholstery, $2,750 on the Premium Package Plus, $4,060 for a massage function for both front and rear seats, and $3,170 on the larger rear center console. There’s also plenty of driver assist options to choose from and getting them all will cost you around $20,000. If you’re looking to spend even more, you can do it by getting a dark walnut steering wheel for $790, the Paldao Interior Package for $1,455 and illuminated door sills in either aluminum or carbon-fiber for $1,015 and $1,380, respectively. The audio section alone is packed with expensive options, including the rear seat entertainment system ($2,630) or the Burmester surround sound system ($5,935).

Finally, you can drop another $20,000 on performance upgrades such as the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport ($5,000), the ceramic-composite brakes ($8,960), the Sport Chrono Package ($2,530), and the sport exhaust system ($3,490 or $3,855 depending on the color).

All told, the Panamera Turbo Executive can cost more than $200,000 with the right options. I just managed to build a $234,465 sedan by adding $73,415 worth of extras to the $160K sticker and the $1,050 shipping and handling fee. Can you build a more expensive rig? Post you dream Panamera Turbo Executive in the comments box below.

In Depth: 2017 Ford F-150 Buyer's Guide

In Depth: 2017 Ford F-150 Buyer’s Guide

A close look at the F-150’s options list

The Ford F-150 has been the best selling pickup for nearly 40 years and has more recently become the best selling vehicle – regardless of model type – in the United States. To say the F-150 is an important and well-loved vehicle would be a dramatic understatement. That’s why we’re looking deep into the F-150’s configuration and options combinations. We aim to inform consumes on what Ford offers with the F-150.

The current F-150 was dramatically reinvented for the 2015 model year an is vastly different from any other pickup on the market. That’s because its body is constructed of lightweight aluminum and it rides on a highly engineered, fully boxed steel frame. It has a pair highly technical, forced-induction engines and it is the first mass-production vehicle to offer a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Of course, the F-150 has some strong competition, namely from General Motors and Ram. GM offers its Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra twins, while Ram has its 1500-series truck. There are others out there, too, including Nissan’s new-for-2017 Titan and Toyota’s aging Tundra. Still, it’s Ford that continues to sell more trucks to more people across the North American continent.

How We'd Spec It: 2017 Honda Ridgeline

How We’d Spec It: 2017 Honda Ridgeline

It’s the truck for people who don’t like trucks

The Honda Ridgeline is about as controversial as a pickup truck can be. Diehard truck folks say the unibody-based Ridgeline is too soft and incapable of “real work.” They scoff at its transversely mounted engine and standard FWD. But after having driven one, I can firmly say the Ridgeline is more truck than most suburbanites truly need. With that in mind, I set out to build the perfect Ridgeline – not too expensive, but not rental-grade, either.

The Ridgeline is available in a dizzying array of acronymic trim levels. There are seven in total. They are the RT, RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition. Parked about midway up the hierarchy is the RTL-T. The name might not be memorable, but it comes with satellite navigation, the Display Audio Touch Screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

That’s compounded atop of the other features found on lesser trim models like heated leather seats, with 10-way power adjustments for the driver, an acoustic windshield, Smart Entry with push-button start, fog lights, Tri-Zone climate control, and remote engine starting. The RTL-T is also the highest trim level available with FWD as standard. Of course, AWD can be had for an additional $1,800. In my case, I’d spend the extra cash.

Speaking of cash, the RTL-T carries a starting price of $35,930. Tack on the cost of AWD, and the before-options price of my theoretical new truck comes to $37,730. Keep reading to see how I’d finish out the build. You can disagree with my choices in the comments.

Ford’s online configurator goes live!

Anybody obsessed with cars has spent countless hours perusing online build configurators, selecting just the right combination of options, the perfect paint color, and all the intricate interior details. Well F-150 Raptor fans can now customize their perfect truck on Ford’s Build & Price website.

The website allows users to select cab configurations, color choices, option groups, graphics packages, interior accent packages, and a slew of stand-alone options like the Torsen front differential and adaptive cruise control. The Raptor is the top trim choice for the SuperCab configuration, but slots between the King Ranch and Platinum trim levels when the SuperCrew configuration is chosen. The website shows pricing ranges from $48,325 for the SuperCab and $51,310 for the SuperCrew. Check every option box on the SuperCerw, and the MSRP jumps to $70,000.

Beyond cab configurations, users can choose between seven exterior colors. The three main equipment packages includes the standard 800A package at no cost, the 801A package for $3,158, and the 802A package for $9,345. Broken down, the 800A package is basically everything that makes a Raptor a Raptor. The 801A package is where additional items start packing on. It includes 10-way power front seats with heat and power lumbar functions, leather seating surfaces, a power-sliding rear window, SYNC3, eight-inch driver info center in the gauge cluster, and two USB ports.

The mac-daddy 802A package includes everything in the 801A package, but adds the Torsen front diff, the 360-degree camera system, ambient interior lighting, blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, dual-zone climate control, integrated trailer brake controller, LED box lighting and side mirrors, keyless enter and go, power tilt and telescope steering column, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, remote start, and a few other ancillary items.

Of course, these are just the options. The list of standard equipment is what makes the Raptor the industry standard for hard-core, high-speed desert running. Check out those details past the jump.

You can Configure Your Own Rezvani Beast

You can Configure Your Own Rezvani Beast

Rezvani just launched a cool car configurator that lets you add several options

In recent years, the market has been flooded by superlight sports cars in the vein of the Caterham Seven. Ariel, Noble, and KTM are only a few of the companies that have joined this niche, launching powerful competitors for the iconic Seven. But these aren’t as new as the Rezvani Beast, a sports car built by an American-Iranian manufacturer established in 2014. Based on the Ariel Atom underneath, the Beast arrived in various configurations in 2015 and quickly made a name for itself as one of the most aggressive, no-nonsense sports cars on the market. Come 2016 and Rezvani is finally ready to take orders for the Beast, which can be customized via an online configurator.

The interesting thing about it is that while most sports cars don’t have an actual configurator — the Seven, for instance, can’t be built online — Rezvani launched quite the comprehensive website for the Beast. The first step enables you to see the sports car in one of six available paints and one of three wheel colors. Next up, you get to pick between the six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, standard or adjustable suspension, and from three different braking systems.

There are also numerous Interior options for such a simple sports car, including cloth or leather upholstery, three colors, and customizing possibilities for the shift knob, stitching, seats, steering wheel, and floor mats. Finally, you can select a premium sound system and accessories such as a car cover and a battery charger. The next step is to reserve the car and place the order, in which case you can choose to make a deposit. It’s pretty neat assuming you have at least $210,000 to spare. If you don’t, it’s still a lot of fun to play with the online app. Here’s how we configured our Beast.
