Shmee Wants to Give You the Low-Down on the Lamborghini Aventador-based Mansory Cabrera
YouTube personality Shmee recently took a trip to the Mansory headquarters in Germany to take a look at the tuner’s three new projects that it created to celebrate its 30th anniversary as a company. One of those three models is the Mansory Cabrera, a ridiculous aftermarket creation based on the already ridiculous Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
In typical Mansory fashion, the Cabrera goes extreme in ways Lamborghini never did when it created the Aventador SVJ. Shmee was on hand to give us a close look at the Cabrera and all its infinite glory.
2020 Ford GT "Le MANSORY"
Mansory has belatedly pulled the covers off of its latest masterpiece, the Ford GT “Le Mansory.” Initially scheduled to be revealed at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, the Le Mansory is the product of everything the German tuner stands for.
Modifications abound inside and outside of the Ford GT. It’s hard to expect anything less from Mansory, but this is no ordinary project for the tuner. The GT Le Mansory is limited to just three units, making it one of the rarest projects Mansory has ever created. Are you not intrigued?
New Reports Say the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series Will Debut in July
The long awaited Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, the range-topping version of the company’s flagship sports car, could make its debut in July 2020. Spotted testing on public roads since late 2019, the beefed-up coupe could break cover in less than a month. The news comes from MB Passion Blog, which also speculates that the Black Series model could debut at the Chengdu Motor Show in China.
The event is scheduled to happen on July 24, 2020. Although it seems unlikely for Mercedes-Benz to introduce a high-profile sports car at a somewhat unknown event, the Germans could take advantage of the Chengdu Motor Show in absence of major auto events in Europe and the United States this time of year.
The Blue Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale Is Real, Although It Doesn’t Seem Like It
Trying to pin down the most beautiful road car ever made is an impossible task. There are those that would give an arm and a leg to at least lay eyes on a 250 GTO and others that have altars in their homes dedicated to the Jaguar E-Type or the Lamborghini Miura.
However, among the cars tossed around in this discussion none is probably more exclusive than Alfa Romeo’s Tipo 33 Stradale. While Ferrari built over 30 250 GTOs in the mid-’60s, fewer than 10 Tipo 33s are believed to exist so to come to the realization that one of them is blue, not red, is akin to realizing that the Sun revolves around the Earth and not the other way around.
Car for Sale: One-Owner, RHD, 2006 Ferrari 575 Superamerica HGTC
The Ferrari 550 Maranello is one of the most important modern cars by the Italian manufacturer, as it marked its return to a front-engine, RWD layout for its two-seater 12-cylinder model. The first such model in 23 years, the 550 Maranello was introduced in 1996 and updated in 2002.
The facelifted model was renamed the 575M Maranello and spawned a limited-edition Superamerica model. While the 575M Maranello was produced in a little over 2,000 examples, the Superamerica was capped at just 599 units. And one of these rare examples is now for sale in the U.K. by Bell Sport & Classic.
After More Than A Decade, Bentley Ends Production Of The Mulsanne
Production of the Bentley Mulsanne has finally ended, closing the chapter on the model’s 11-year run as the British automaker’s flagship model. Over 7,300 units of the Mulsanne were handbuilt at Bentley’s home in Crewe, Cheshire in the U.K., including the final production model, which also happens to be the final example of the limited-run Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner. With the Mulsanne now set for retirement, the Flying Spur takes its place atop Bentley’s model hierarchy as the brand’s new flagship model. The Mulsanne occupied that spot for more than a decade, but now that the model is headed for the sunset, it’s high time to clear that spot for the next-in-line Flying Spur. The Mulsanne had a great run, but like all great runs, there’s always a finish line ahead, and the Mulsanne has finally crossed it.

Check Out This Awesome Review of a Street-Legal Gunther Werks 993 Porsche 911
Because the Porsche 911 is a very popular car, the market is now packed with tuners that modify the German sports car. Among them, there are a few shops that do older 911s. Gunther Werks is one of them, and its reinterpretation of the 993-generation 911 is impressive, to say the least. And it’s not just a beefed-up 911, but a full-fledged race car that’s road legal.
The Lexus LC F - Successor to the LFA - Has Reportedly Been Cancelled
It’s been a decade since Lexus unveiled the LFA supercar and punched its ticket as an accepted performance car brand. Toyota’s premium brand has rolled out some impressive performance models in the ensuing years, but what it hasn’t done is present the official successor of the mighty LFA.
The Lexus LC F — the high-performance variant of the LC luxury coupe — was supposed to be that model, except that might not happen anymore after reports surfaced that the LC F project has been discontinued by Toyota in light of all the uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 global pandemic.

2021 Lamborghini Urus Pearl Capsule Design Package
The Lamborghini Urus is the youngest model in the company’s lineup and was the best-selling product for the automaker in 2019. The company has sold over 8,300 examples of the Urus since its launch in September 2018, 4,962 copies of which were moved last year. This accounted for 60-percent of the automaker’s total sales in 2019. So, it was imperative that the company kept the product fresh and exciting entering in its third year.
To do so, Lamborghini has introduced the 2021 Urus with a new Capsule Design package along with a few other changes. The package includes new colors, carbon fiber elements, etc. Not to mention, the prices of the Urus are also increased.
Own A Piece Of British Le Mans History With This TVR T400R
TVR is known as one of those wacky British manufacturers that, bolstered by a feverish can-do attitude, has been putting out stupendous sports cars for decades. Most of the TVRs that’ve come out since the ’90s are weird, somewhat unreliable, impractical, and that’s why we love them. We love the Tuscan, the Cerbera, the T350, the Chimaera, and the Sagaris all the same and today we’re focusing on the one that last raced at Le Mans, the Tuscan or, as it was called in its latter years, the T440.
As a small manufacturer, TVR never could hope to pump out dozens and dozens of race cars like Porsche and, as such, only six Tuscan-based GT cars were ever made and the first chassis, number 1227, debuted way back in 2001 and had a long and storied career with a final appearance at Le Mans in ’05 followed by a full European Le Mans Series season in ’06. And now you can buy it from the man who’s had it since it was brand-spanking-new.
New Details of the 2022 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06 Paint An Interesting Picture
Although production of the mid-engined Corvette C8 was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, we learned that Chevrolet has big plans for the sports car, with Z06, ZR1, and Zora models underway. The Z06 is officially scheduled for 2022, and even though we don’t know if it will arrive on time, we just learned a few juicy details about it from our friends over at Muscle Cars and Trucks.
2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec
Just as customers are now receiving their Ferrari F8 Tributos, a new aftermarket program is already available for Maranello’s successor to the 488 GTB. As most have likely guessed correctly, this program comes to us by way of Novitec, the Italian tuner that’s best known for its work on some of Italia’s finest supercars. This new program for the F8 Tributo is a chop off the old block for the German tuner. It’s tricked out with an impressive engine upgrade, a new set of wheels, and improvements to the suspension that should make the F8 more potent on the road and track. The package also comes with an aerodynamic body kit, but as it is with early bird tuning kits, the aforementioned aero kit remains in the oven and will be launched at a later time. Still, it’s hard not to like what Novitec already has on the table for the F8 Tributo. After all, it’s not easy to turn a 700-horsepower supercar into a bonafide spitfire.
Elektron Innovativ To Debut A 1,300-Horsepower Electric Hypercar At The 2021 Geneva Motor Show
For some reason, the majority of the electric startups begin their journeys with supercars or hypercars before trickling down to mass-market cars; Tesla, Rivian, and Fisker, to name a few. Here’s one such company, Elektron Innovativ, that has taken the first step – build a mighty powerful electric car to grab everyone’s attention. But, is it that intriguing to the enthusiasts anymore?
