Instead of Buying a McLaren 765LT, Just Gat a Base 720S and a Porsche 718
McLaren just announced U.S. pricing information for the 765LT, and it costs quite a pretty penny at $358,000. That’s a notable premium over the base 720S, which retails from around $300,000 before options. Needless to say, for the price of 765LT, you can buy a 720S, which is still awesome, and still have enough money for a second sports car, like the Porsche 718.
McLaren Has Decided to Cut Production of the Elva From 399 to 249 Units
In late 2019, McLaren introduced the Elva, a unique, open-cockpit road car based on a race car design from the 1960s. The company’s lightest road-legal vehicle, it’s also McLaren’s most powerful non-hybrid car. Priced from almost $1.8 million, the Elva was scheduled to be built in 399 units, but McLaren recently dropped that figure to 249. The decrease is the result of feedback from customers who think that the Elva isn’t exclusive enough.
Recording a Bugatti Chiron at 250 MPH Is No Easy Task
Back in 2017 Bugatti released a two-minute video of the Bugatti Chiron going from 0 to 250 mph in only 42 seconds, setting a new world record. Almost three years later, the guys from Outrun unveiled how they filmed it. And as it turns out, it’s a lot more difficult than you’d expect. This video also comes to reject the rumor that the high-speed run was recorded with a beefed-up Toyota Supra camera car.
This is What Lotus is Planning For The Next 10 Years
Lotus was in big trouble a few years ago, to the point where it almost went bankrupt. Luckily, Chinese automaker Geely purchased the British company from Proton in 2017 and it has taken important steps to save it. Although the current lineup includes three sports cars originally launched between 1996 and 2008, Lotus is planning a big expansion during the next decade.
Lamborghini Steps Up in Fight Against COVID-19, Starts Production of Face Masks and Shields
Add Lamborghini to the growing list of automakers that have stepped up to help medical frontliners in their fight against the COVID-19 virus. The Italian automaker has started production of face masks and protective shields for health workers at Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna, Italy.
Lamborghini is targeting a production rate of 1,000 face masks and 200 face shields per day. The supercar brand is the latest automaker to lend a helping hand to the medical frontliners who have had to fight a staggering number of recorded cases in Italy. As of April 1, 2020, Italy has recorded 110,574 cases of those affected by the virus. Of that figure, a total of 13,155 people have died while 16,874 have recovered from the deadly virus.
Living the Dream? Shmee Has a Model Car That’s Identical to His McLaren Senna
Supercar connoisseur and YouTube vlogger Shmee150 recently took delivery of his second McLaren Senna. But this time around it’s a scale model that’s eight times smaller than the real deal. But it’s identical to the actual car in terms of colors and even materials. What’s more, it costs in excess of $9,000.
Supercars You Can Buy for $50,000 or Less
Most of today’s supercars are well out of the budget of normal folks. That’s a fact. We can argue until the cows come home, but there are reasons why exotic cars routinely command six-figure price tags.
But just because that’s the case for brand-new models, that doesn’t mean you can’t find cheap supercars. Most of of what counts as affordable supercars are typically the ones that are pre-owned. There are a lot of used supercars for sale, ranging from old Italian exotics to modern American performance machines. If for nothing else, this proves that just because brand-new supercars are out of most people’s financial reach, that doesn’t mean you can’t find sweet deals for used exotic cars for sale. We’ve compiled a list of these cheap supercars that you can buy for less than $50,000.
Is This Bugatti EB110 GTR Better Than the Centodieci?
When Bugatti brought the
based Centodieci in Pebble Beach back in 2019, a lot of jaws dropped. Yet as it always happens whenever a new car/special edition breaks out, naysayers were quick to comment that the Centodieci was just another glorified Bugatti with no connection to the original EB110 other than some styling cues.
The thing is, it’s hard not to be subjective when it comes to Bugatti. It’s also pretty hard not to love the brand once you learn its history. But for those who raised their eyebrows at the sight of the Centodieci, here’s a motorsport-y twist on the EB110.
The Very First McLaren F1 GTR Longtail is Up for Sale!
The first example of the iconic McLaren F1 GTR Longtail, one of only 10 built, is being listed for sale by Tom Hartley Jnr. Arguably one of the most important McLarens ever produced, this specific model was a factory development car and one of only two GTR prototypes that ended up in private hands. The other one is currently owned by former Pink Floyd drummer and renowned car collector Nick Mason. The seller hasn’t listed a price for the supercar, but it’s safe to say it will change hands for more than $5 million.
Aston Martin’s Valhalla-bound Twin-Turbo V-6 Is Named After a Brilliant Polish Engineer
As incredible as it may seem, Aston Martin hasn’t had a production-ready engine built in-house since 1968. That’s about to change once the mid-engined Valhalla hits the streets in 2022.
We’ve known for a long time that the Valhalla will be gifted with an F1-inspired, turbocharged and electrified V-6, and we recently reported that Aston Martin was hard at work on this very engine. We had no idea, however, it will pay homage to one of the industry’s most creative engineering minds. Enter the TM01, named after the great Tadek Marek.
This Cyberpunk Countach Is The Electric Lamborghini We Need
Just so we’re clear, Lamborghini isn’t keen on jumping head-first into the electrification bandwagon. So far, Sant’Agata Bolognese has been keen on tipping its toes into the ocean with the Aventador-based, V-12-hybrid Sian FKP 37, but the company’s officials are adamant that an all-electric Lambo won’t arrive earlier than 2026.
If that’s the case, then let’s play the following scenario: the year is 2090, Lamborghini has a couple of EV supercars on offer, yet an extremely affluent and eccentric collector decides to retrofit his Lamborghini Countach with an all-electric powertrain and a cyberpunk-like appearance. What would that look like?
If Mazda Was Going to Build A Supercar, This Is What It Should Look Like
Mazda is busy formulating its strategy for an inevitable electric future and competing with the ever-growing trend in SUVs. But what if, someday, down the road, Mazda wanted to jump into the supercar market and compete against the Honda NSX as one of the only other rear mid-engined supercars on the U.S. market? Well, automotive design artist, Joseph Robinson took it upon himself to show the world just what it would look like. Let’s take a good look at it.
