The Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 Lego Technic Kit Is Probably Everything Your Life Has Been Missing
Major Lego sets don’t come too often but it turns out 2020 isn’t just about world pandemics and home isolation. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the latest collabo between Lego and Lamborghini, nicely wrapped up as a Technic set - pretty much the highest echelon of builds Lego makes currently. Enter the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 Lego Technic set.
Apex Aims to Launch an "Affordable" EV Once the AP-0 Hypercar Launches
Almost every EV startup’s first vehicle is a supercar. Once better sense prevails, they move on to building mass-market, affordable vehicles. Is it a marketing strategy to create a strong impression in the minds of the customers? Perhaps. Tesla has done it, so has Fisker, and Rivian almost followed the same suit.
The latest electric automaker to take this route is U.K.-based Apex. The company debuted its first vehicle called the AP-O concept in London a couple of months back, but it plans to build an affordable EV once the AP-O is launched. Going by the history of the companies that adopted the same trend, we’ll probably have to wait for a few years.
Here’s What Randy Pobst Has to Say After Test Driving the Pagani Huayra
The BC is powered by the Huayra’s 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine but the power is up by 25 horsepower and there’s more torque too, all kept in check by a more aggressive aerodynamic package. Now it’s time for road racing veteran Randy Pobst to tell everyone about the time when he got to try out a member of the supercar world’s upper echelons with all the others also in attendance.
Behold the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Giving the Bilster Berg The Business
Bugatti, the maker of the fastest road-legal car, has just about had it with people yammering on about how its multi-million-dollar products are merely trailer queens good only for the occasional highway blast that otherwise only sit pretty in front of a Michelin-starred restaurant or high-end hotel. To prove the Chiron is also at home on a track, Bugatti rented the entire 2.6-mile-long Bilster Berg track and this is what went down.
We Know You’ll Love This 30-Second Video Tour of the SSC Tuatara!
After years and years of development, the SSC Tuatara is finally coming in 2020, and the North American company is promising a new top speed record for production cars. While an official unveiling date is not yet available, SSC is releasing teaser after teaser for the new supercar. This latest video showcases some of the Tuatara’s main features.
A Smaller, Cheaper SSC Tuatara Is Coming to Appease the 5-Percenters
The SSC Tuatara is a mean beast that lugs around a twin-turbo V-8 that’s good for 1,750 horsepower, a 2.5-second sprint to 60 mph, and a top speed in excess of 300 mph. The latest bit has yet to be proven, but in an interview with Top Gear, SSC Head Jerod Shelby, has confirmed that the company has found a driver and a suitable location for its long-awaited top-speed run. This aside, the SSC Tuatara doesn’t come cheap with a price than runs nearly $2 million – something that leaves it available to, well, the top 0.5-percent of the world’s population. Now, we’ve learned that a smaller, more affordable model is coming.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the facelifted version of the original model launched in 2016. It’s basically an upgraded variant of the rear-wheel-drive alternative to the standard Huracan, which features an AWD layout. Visual upgrades are in line with the rest of the Huracan lineup, but the RWD stands out with a unique front bumper and rear diffuser. More notably, it’s more powerful than the old model, as it now features the V-10 engine of the old AWD model. The naturally aspirated mill cranks out 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Huracan Evo RWD Spyder hits 62 mph from a standing start in 3.5 seconds.
Times are changing in the car world and it’s not just the small guys that are force to adapt. Change acts as an equalizer more often then not and when it comes to electrification, those that play in the stratospheric leagues of the industry must evolve to, well, keep playing.
Take Bugatti. The carmaker was adamant that it won’t build hybrids and instead focus on pure electric cars. When will that happen nobody knows. However, we expect Bugatti to give its ICE era a proper swan song, one that could look like the La Finale design study, envisioned with a V-12 engine instead of Bugatti’s signature W-16 powerhouse.
Here’s How the Lotus Evija’s Aerodynamics Are So Unique
Just like love and marriage, you can’t have a supercar without top-shelf aerodynamics to keep it stable at high speeds and help the tires extract as much grip as possible from the ground.
Throw in an all-electric powertrain and the need for a body that lets air flow smoothly becomes even more pungent. Here’s how Lotus solved the aero equation for the Evija.
Koenigsegg’s Electronic Stability Control Can Protect Even the Dumbest Drivers
It’s hard to ignore Christian von Koenigsegg’s brilliance when it comes to developing supercars. And while Koenigsegg’s more recent offerings such as the Gemera and Jesko Absolut are just enough to blow your mind, one of the brand’s most popular models, although now considered ’old’, still manages to impress.
No, not by violent 0-60 mph sprints or brake-disc-melting decelerations, but by the way it stays glued to the ground and stable when mishandled.
This is How Some Bugatti Customers are Configuring the Divo
The Bugatti Divo was unveiled back in 2018, but because production of the Chiron and its version is bespoke, the French carmaker has yet to assemble and deliver all 40 units. Production of the Divo began recently, but with Bugatti’s factory closed off due to the coronavirus pandemic, customers might not get their cars for a while. To keep things interesting, Bugatti is now showing off four builds commissioned by Divo buyers. These are just computer-generated images, but they illustrate the wide range of possibilities inside and out, as well as the fact that all 40 examples will be unique.
This Rendering Is a Stunning Example of What a Rolls-Royce Supercar Could Look Like
Now, Rolls-Royce’s most recent crop of cars might have supercar-worthy names - think of Ghost, Phantom, and Wraith - but the BMW-owned nameplate never played in the super sports car arena and we’re pretty sure it doesn’t intend to.
This didn’t stop Rain Prisk from imagining what a Rolls-Royce supercar might look like. The answer is, of course, darn right exquisite.
