25 Incredible Facts About The Stunning Bugatti Divo
Revealed at “The Quail” as part of Monterey Car Week, the new Bugatti Divo represents the next step into the extreme for the company that produces the fastest car on the planet - the Chiron. The new car takes a slightly different approach to life compared to the Chiron. Apart from being extremely fast and ridiculously powerful, the Divo moves a bit more to the dynamism and cornering abilities, so the top speed is its second priority. While it is based on the Chiron, the Divo feels like a new car, and this made me list a number of facts and differences between the Divo and the Chiron.
Now, I did say that the top speed feels like it’s only the second priority for the Divo. Well, that second priority is at 236 mph.
First Walkaround Video Shows Just How Awesome The McLaren Artura Is
When McLaren woke up from its sleep in 2010 and started churning out fantastic supercars, some said it will only be temporary. One decade later, McLaren is still doing its thing, combining sleek-looking, low-slung cars with insane performance. With the Artura, the supercar maker managed to prove yet another thing: it is not afraid to switch it up every now and then just as it is not afraid to play with new tech.

Aston Martin Will Leverage An AMG Powertrain to Breathe Life into the Valhalla
Despite having been delayed from its original 2022 launch, the Aston Martin Valhalla is still coming. There is, however, a good chance that the Valhalla will arrive in a different form from what Aston Martin originally intended. At the heart of the possible changes is Aston’s brand new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, which may not end up in the Valhalla as intended. Instead, the mid-engined supercar will likely be equipped with a Mercedes-AMG powertrain that Aston Martin now has access to as part of a new technical partnership between the two brands. The revised Aston Martin Valhalla is now scheduled to arrive in 2023.
2021 Lamborghini SC20
Lamborghini’s Motorsport division, Squadra Corse, is back with another one-off project called the SC20, following the SC18 Alston and the SCV12. With a blue and white theme all around, the supercar takes inspiration from a lot of other bulls from the company’s portfolio. It features a V-12 engine that makes 759 horses, and, to make the deal even sweeter, Lamborghini has said that the SC20 is road legal!
Koenigsegg is a revolutionary automaker that has been pushing the threshold of engineering with every new car of theirs. Be it the Koenigsegg CCR that humbled the legendary McLaren F1 or the Koenigsegg One:1, the world’s first megacar that had an impressive power to weight ratio of 1:1. The future also looks quite thrilling with the Koenigsegg Jesko, a 1,600-horsepower machine that has the making to surpass the 300 mph mark!
Revolutionary engineering technologies have been at the forefront for Koenigsegg. Their latest ground-breaking feat comes in an ironically small package and is aptly named the Tiny Friendly Giant - the world’s most powerful 2.0-liter three-cylinder engine with 1700 horsepower and a monstrous 2,581 lb-ft of torque. This engine uses the magical Freevalve technology which makes all of these mind-boggling numbers possible and comes packed in the Koenigsegg Gemera - their very first megacar with four seats.

GMA T.50s Niki Lauda Arrives as a Track-Focused Destroyer on Four Wheels
Gordon Murray Automotive has revealed the track version of the McLaren F1-inspired T.50 supercar. It’s called the GMA T.50s Niki Lauda, named after the three-time F1 world champion. GMA developed the T.50s Niki Lauda with the goal of turning it into the be-all and end-all for a track car. It comes with a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine that produces 89 fewer horsepower than the McLaren Senna GTR, but weighs 30 percent lighter and generates 50 percent more downforce than the McLaren track car. GMA plans to build only 25 units of the T.50s Niki Lauda. Each unit is priced at $4.3 million, and production is set to begin at the end of 2021.
The Hyperion XP-1 Looks Oddly In Place On the Streets of Hollywood
Back in August 2020, Hyperion finally launched the XP-1 hypercar. The car took the world by storm with some ridiculous claims like a 1,000-mile range, top speed beyond 200 mph, and so on. The XP-1 looked incredible in the press images, but would it have the same feels in the real world? Well, the Hyperion XP-1 took a stroll in the streets of Hollywood during a street photoshoot session and we must say, it looked pretty alien out there.

With cutting edge technology inside its all-new twin-turbo V6 engine, an electrical plug AND a warranty - surprised face - this is the brand-new McLaren Artura, a plug-in hybrid supercar that finally has a name you’ll remember. Probably. Oh, and it also doesn’t have a reverse gear.
Bugatti May Soon Be The Property of Rimac - Here’s What That Would Mean

This Time Lapse of a Homemade Bugatti Is Mind Boggling
The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is as much a car as it is a mirage. Born to be raced by gamers in the smash Playstation title Gran Turismo 6, joining many other ’Vision Gran Turismo’ creations from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, BMW, Nissan, or Citroen, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo somehow transcended the world of gaming when Bugatti actually decided to build a running and driving example of it.
With there only being one of these ludicrous-looking,
inspired hypercars out there, crafty mechanic Jack Lee and his team had to make one from scratch and, amazingly, that’s exactly what went down.
Five supercars, with a total power output of 5.415 horsepower, are here. I am sure that you simply do not know enough about them. Modern supercars and hypercars you have probably never heard of are quite numerous actually. Apart from these, I could have also listed the Rezvani Beast, the Trion Nemesis RR, the Apollo Arrow, the Arash AF10, the Devel Sixteen, and the Arrinera Hussarya, among others. But what is the point as many of these will simply cease to exist as time plays its dirty game and erases them from history. Yet, the five I chose may stick around a bit longer than expected.
You Have To Hear The Pagani Huayra R’s Naturally Aspirated V-12!
The Pagani Huayra may be nine years old as of 2021, but it’s not going away anytime soon. The Italian company is preparing a new version of the V-12 supercar and it’s going to be the most extreme iteration yet. It’s called the Huayra R and it’s still somewhat of a mystery. Pagani just released a sound sample of its V-12 engine and it’s one of the best sounding supercars out there!
Someone Has Finally Drag Tested the Ferrari SF90
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale puts a lot of supercars in their place with its blistering pace, but the quickness that it can to go from point A to point B is something that a lot of people have to see for themselves.
Brooks Weisblat from Dragtimes provided that opportunity when he got a chance to drive an SF90 in the streets of Puerto Rico. That’s where Ferrari’s new hybrid-supercar proved its worth, clocking a 0-to-60-mph time of just 2.35 seconds and hitting a quarter-mile in 9.62 seconds at 146 mph.
Meet the Roofless Huracan EVO Aperta That Lamborghini Wouldn’t Build
There are people who aren’t satisfied with just a Huracan Evo; they want more or at the very least, something that’ll serve as a physical manifestation of their status. The drive to be different is the reason the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Aperta exists. It’s a one-off, Huracan Evo-based creation that’s without a roof, windows, or a windshield. It also has a V-10 engine with more power than the Huracan Evo’s “standard” V-10 unit. In other words, it’s a Lamborghini Huracan Evo unlike any other, or as some people like to say, “it’s a one-of-a-kind, roofless monster on four wheels.”
