Aston Martin Simplifies the DB11 V8 Before It Goes Electric
Aston Martin is aiming for electrification in the foreseeable future and the planned changes for the Aston Martin DB11 aim to simplify the model lineup and make room for the electric version for the car. The DB11 was introduced in 2016 and, for two years, was produced alongside the V-12 Vanquish, before completely taking over as the brand’s flagship model. Now, the DB11 will have a more simplified lineup, to accommodate the eventual arrival of the gran tourer’s EV version.
Take a Nice Tour of the Koenigsegg Jesko Before Seeing It Exercise Its Grunt
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
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.
2021 Lamborghini Huracán EVO Mexico Editions
It’s been a decade since Lamborghini opened its first dealership in Mexico. To commemorate this, the automaker has come up with four special editions based on the themes of Mexico’s culture – Life, Death, Dream, and Time. These are all aesthetic changes and come with no upgrades under the skin. The Mexico models are all about the ideology and the reasoning behind the four themes. Which edition is your favorite?
Porsche Denies Rumors About a New Halo Hypercar, But That Doesn’t Mean It Isn’t Happening
Porsche’s sports car lineup is quite diverse, having numerous high-performance models based on both the 911 and 718. That said, the German carmaker currently doesn’t have a proper flagship model. Previously that role was filled by the hybrid 918, but its production was ended back in 2015. Of course, Porsche brought back the 911 GT2 RS, which was based on the 991 and they even did a homage to the 935 Moby Dick, based on that GT2 RS. With this in mind, we’ve been getting mixed reports about a potential “GT1 successor,” some of which are quite interesting.
Should Lamborghini Finally Give Us the Estoque
Do you remember the Estoque? Yes, that evocative sedan that Lambo showed us more than a decade ago. The concept car broke cover at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. This, of course, was pre-Aventador, back when Lamborghini was just trying to garner market reaction to the idea of a four-door sedan.
A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie’s Debut Run 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.
One-of-Three 1972 Lamborghini Miura SVJs Comes Up For Sale
It has been over 55 years since the Lamborghini Miura was launched. It stayed in production for around seven years, during which the Italian automaker produced 764 examples of the beauty. Out of these 764 copies, three were conferred with the SVJ badge to make an ultra-rare model of a rather rare car. One of those three, a 1972 model, has now come up for sale and is listed on Kidston.com!
James Bond’s New Mid-Engined Car, the Aston Martin Valhalla, Is finally Here
Aston Martin has showcased the exterior design of its mid-engined hypercar, the Valhalla along with all its technical specfications. While deliveries of the Valkyrie hypercar are now just weeks away, the British carmaker was quietly working on two mid-engine models; one of them being the Valhalla and the other, the revived Vanquish.
Lamborghini Countach - Celebrating Its 50-Year Anniversary
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.
Would You Rock This Honda Turned Lamborghini?
Many enthusiasts and tuning studios have entertained the idea of building a supercar replica. At least on paper, the idea of a budget supercar, or at least something that resembles one, is an appealing one. But oftentimes, there are certain restraints, usually stemming from the platform used. The Honda Civic seems to have always been a good base for any supercar replica and the Indian tuning studio Dream Customs has used one to make what seems a perfect recreation of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, at least from a distance.
Watch A Tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S Obliterate A Lamborghini Aventador SV and A Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti On The Drag Strip
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?
