Get Familiar With the 11,100-RPM Cosworth V-12 Out of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

Get Familiar With the 11,100-RPM Cosworth V-12 Out of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

The new nitty gritty on one of the most insane road-going engines in the world

Hypercars are getting crazier and crazier with every successive generation, and the new Aston Martin Valkyrie is a perfect example of just how wild the current crop of top-shelf performers truly are. A lot of the Aston’s insanity comes down to the beating mid-ship heart of the machine, and now we’re getting a fresh take on what makes it tick.

All Hail The Pininfarina Battista!

All Hail The Pininfarina Battista!

The hypercar we all know as the PF0 gets named after the man who started Pininfarina

The Pininfarina PF0 is no more. Long live the Pininfarina Battista! That’s the official name Pininfarina’s first-ever production car is taking, and it’s named after the man who started Carrozzeria Pininfarina in the first place, Battista Farina. The Italian automaker announced the car’s official name to go with the promise that the Battista will be the “fastest and most powerful car” ever to come out of Italy. Pininfarina plans to build 150 units of the Battista, allocated evenly — 50 units per region — among the U.S., Europe, and Asian markets. The hypercar is scheduled to make its debut at 2019 Geneva Motor Show before production starts sometime in 2020.

Bah, Humbug: Bugatti's Gone Cold on Doing a Top Speed Run for The Chiron

Bah, Humbug: Bugatti’s Gone Cold on Doing a Top Speed Run for The Chiron

It looks like the Koenigsegg Agera RS is going to hold on to its record for a while

The world has been waiting two years for the Bugatti Chiron to post a top speed run. We’ve been teased about it before, but now it looks all that teasing will be for naught. Bugatti has now closed the door on a top speed run for the Chiron. Word of the company’s decision on the issue comes straight from the mouth of CEO Stephen Winkelmann, who said that a top speed run isn’t in any of Bugatti’s priorities at the moment. Whether that position holds true or changes remains to be seen, but if you’re looking for a threat to the Koenigsegg Agera RS’ world record top speed of 277.8 mph, that conversation, at least for now, starts and ends with the Hennessey Venom F5. Bugatti’s not joining that party, much to the dismay of everyone.

2019 BMW M8

2019 BMW M8

The first 8 Series with an "M" badge

The BMW 8 Series returned in 2018 after almost 20 years. Developed to replace the 6 Series, the 8 Series is sportier, more modern, and enables BMW to compete against the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. For the first time ever, the 8 Series will be upgraded to M8 specifications by the company’s high-performance division. The M8 will brake cover sometime in 2019.

When BMW introduced the 8 Series back in 1989, it reshaped the full-size luxury segment with a car that was gorgeous, unique, and loaded with innovative features. Discontinued in 1999, the 8 Series returned almost two decades later in 2018. The M8’s arrival will mark a premiere for the nameplate, which didn’t receive the M treatment in the 1990s. Although BMW did make a prototype, it eventually decided that there’s no market for the M8 and the project was scrapped. Times have obviously changed now, and with Mercedes already offering AMG versions of the S-Class Coupe and with Bentley producing the Continental GT Speed for quite a few years now, BMW needs the M8 to keep up with the competition. Find out what we already know about this grand tourer in my speculative review below.

Update 12-7-2018: We’ve updated this speculative review with new leaked images and new information. Check out the Exterior section below for all the new M8 goodness!

McLaren Teases a Lego Champions Senna in London Toy Store: Video

McLaren proves that you can build hype for anything

Lego’s Speed Champions collection comprises some of the world’s most exotic machinery such as the Le Mans-winning Porsche 919, the Bugatti Chiron or the Ferrari LaFerrari. Now, a new hypercar is poised to join the lineup of the construction toy manufacturer’s collection. It’s McLaren’s ludicrous Senna, and it won’t be released until after Christmas, but McLaren already released the first teaser video.

You know how most manufacturers let some darkened images slip through the cracks showcasing whatever new model they plan on launching at an upcoming moment in time. McLaren has taken the idea to the world of Lego toys and dully made a fun video showing the soon-to-be-released McLaren Senna in Lego guise. It’s proving the point that, if you want, you can build hype for just about anything.

Meet the 2018 Koenigsegg KNC Regera, The World's First Naked Carbon Vehicle

Meet the 2018 Koenigsegg KNC Regera, The World’s First Naked Carbon Vehicle

It’s called the Koenigsegg KNC Regera, and it’s the perfect example of technological innovation done right

Koenigsegg is no stranger to technological innovation. It comes as no surprise, then, that the Swedish automaker is at the forefront of naked carbon fiber technology, becoming the first automaker in the world to create a car that’s finished entirely out of naked carbon fiber. Koenigsegg has even created a name for it: Koenigsegg Naked Carbon, or “KNC” for short. By Koenigsegg’s admission, the process of creating KNC took years to come together. What began as applications on wheels, wings, splitters, and steering wheels has evolved into a full-blown treatment on an entire car, which Koenigsegg calls the KNC Regera. The one-off creation isn’t for sale because someone who lives in Switzerland already owns it.

Pininfarina's PF0 Electric Hypercar Wants To Redefine The Segment

Pininfarina’s PF0 Electric Hypercar Wants To Redefine The Segment

Only 150 units of the PF0 will be made

Pininfarina has been around for 90 years, and in all that time, it has never built its own car. It’s built concepts, and it’s collaborated with other automakers. But a car that’s 100 percent Pininfarina? That’s never happened. That, of course, is about to change next year. Pininfarina will launch its first-ever production vehicle, and as far as firsts go, it’s a doozy. It’s called the Pininfarina PF0, and it’s a 1,900-horsepower electric hypercar that’s looking to snatch your soul.

2018 Ferrari SP3JC

2018 Ferrari SP3JC

Maranello’s latest-one creation was ordered by a former freelance writer

Following a long line of one-off creations, Ferrari has built another one-make masterpiece, called the SP3JC. Based on the Ferrari F12tdf, the SP3JC is effectively the F12 Spider we never had. It has no roof (obviously), and it wears a funky tri-color paint scheme that really doesn’t do justice to the exclusivity of this model. Scottish collector John Collins owns this model after commissioning Ferrari to build it more than three years ago. The wait was long, but the final product made it worth it.

2020 McLaren Senna GTR

2020 McLaren Senna GTR

The closest thing to a Formula One car!

The McLaren Senna is an upcoming, track-only variant of the radical Senna supercar. Named after famed F1 driver Ayrton Senna, the supercar will also pay tribute to the iconic F1 GTR in race-spec trim. Previewed by the Senna GTR Concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the track-bound supercar will arrive in production form in 2019.

McLaren is already testing the Senna GTR, and our paparazzi spotted the car a couple of times on the track. The supercar is still camouflaged though, and it appears that it’s still missing important parts from its aerodynamic package. But the British firm unveiled a few details about the track-only vehicle, and we will discuss them in the speculative review below.

Here’s Your Chance to Own the First Pagani Huayra Roadster!

It falls under the category of "if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it"

The Pagani Huayra Roadster is one hell of a car, and what makes it all the more special is that it is limited to just 100 units worldwide. The Huayra Roadster is based on the Huayra coupe and includes one huge improvement - unlimited headroom. Now, the very first example, chassis No. 001, is up for sale on James Edition. You can have it to call your own, assuming, of course, that you’re not afraid to ask how much the seller wants for it.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Audi R8

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Audi R8

The Audi R8, aka the poor man’s Lamborghini, is only a few years old, but Audi decided to give it a thorough update for the 2019 model year. Unfortunately, what we thought was going to be a GT model was actually nothing more than the facelifted model that you see here. The good news, however, is that the standard model is now more aggressive than ever. Adding icing to that so delicious cake is that fact that it comes with some extra oomph to justify that extra aggression. How much? Only 30 horsepower, but that’s enough. Now, every trim can blast past the 200-mph threshold, and it can hit 62 mph in as fast as 3.1 seconds. Today, however, that performance doesn’t matter, because we’re here to honor the R8’s beautiful appearance. To do that, we’ve decided to pick out our favorite wallpaper and share it with you. If you don’t like it, there are a few more in the gallery below. Remember, if you want to know more, you can check out our in-depth review of the 2019 Audi R8 as well!

Shortly after the radical McLaren Senna came out, the British firm confirmed that a GTR version is underway.

2019 Lamborghini SC18 Alston

A one-off supercar with aero inspired by the world of motorsport

From the outrageous styling, to the thumping V-12 powerplant, to the breathtaking performance, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is anything but boring. But that’s not stopping one lucky owner from turning the volume knob up to 11 on their Raging Bull. Say hello to the SC18 Alston, which comes with race-spec aero and a track-ready attitude to set it apart from its more “standard” brethren. And although it’s designed for track use, the SC18 Alston is still road-legal, bringing the best of both worlds into wing-tastic harmony.

Ferrari F40 Tribute Render

Novel Interpretation Of The Iconic Ferrari F40 Is The Best Piece Of Design You Will See

I think that we can all agree that the car that shaped the supercar landscape of today is the Ferrari F40. Not only was it the first proper and true supercar, but it spruced a whole line of successors, each of which was a breakthrough in its own right. Now, more than 30 years since its inception, we are still praising it for its remarkable technological proves and astounding performance. However, one guy – an automotive designer – went a bit further and actually reimagined the Ferrari F40 using the styling cues of the modern Ferrari cars. He made sure that the car he designed resonates with the extrovertness of the old one, but also with the sophistication that new Ferrari supercars/hypercars brought to the world. Samir Sadikhov, a graduate of the Istituto Europeo di Design, invested heavily in designing the Ferrari F40 tribute. He did it in his own time as he is currently employed as a designer at Genesis. Previously, he worked on a line of astounding Rezvani cars. Yet, if you are deep within the world of cars, you may know him for a number of astounding designs he did over the years.

Nevertheless, this particular Ferrari F40 seems like one of his most striking works.

The Audi R8 set to stick with V-10 power

The Audi R8 set to stick with V-10 power

No, you won’t see a budget R8 with a V-6 anytime soon

After years of rumors regarding an entry-level R8 model fitted with a smaller turbocharged engine, we now know for a fact that Audi’s fledging supercar will only be available with the naturally-aspirated V-10 that we’re all familiar with.

Ever since a leaked image supposedly showcasing Audi’s release schedule over the next couple of years hit the internet, people have been talking about the possibility of a more affordable model to complete the range. Since the arrival of the second-generation R8, back in 2015, Audi dropped the V-8 engine option the R8 originally had at its core.

Now, with most manufacturers choosing forced induction to minimize the size of their engines and the number of cylinders, the R8 would have been a likely suspect of receiving this treatment in the near future.
