A Smaller, Cheaper SSC Tuatara Is Coming to Appease the 5-Percenters

A Smaller, Cheaper SSC Tuatara Is Coming to Appease the 5-Percenters

A "more affordable" model sounds good, but will it drop into the six-figure range?

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

2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder

Rear-wheel-drive fun with infinite headroom. Also notably more affordable

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.

The La Finale Concept Is Exactly What The Last Gas-Powered Bugatti Should Look Like

The La Finale Concept Is Exactly What The Last Gas-Powered Bugatti Should Look Like

Cc: Bugatti

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

Here’s How the Lotus Evija’s Aerodynamics Are So Unique

Supercars, electric or ICE-powered, and aerodynamics go hand in hand

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

Try jerking the wheel at speed in your Ford Focus and let us know how that goes

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

This is How Some Bugatti Customers are Configuring the Divo

Production of the exclusive supercar is finally underway

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

It would definitely have to pack a V-12

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.

This Jaguar XJ220 GT1 Is Bedroom Poster Material

You can start drooling in 3, 2, 1...

Yes, the Jaguar XJ220 was a real supercar. Not without its flaws, though. Still, Jaguar aimed to pose a real treat for the likes of Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 in terms of top speed.

See, the ’220’ in the Jag’s name was supposed to represent its top speed expressed in miles per hour. Both the F40 and the 959 topped out at 197 miles per hour, so Jaguar made a statement out of this. Sure, the car never achieved that landmark, but it was the fastest production car in the world for about a year or so after its launch.

The XJ220 even competed at Le Mans, and that is a story in itself. So this digitally-applied livery from Jonsibal just begs that we tell you what’s what.

10 Road Cars That Are Barely Street Legal

10 Road Cars That Are Barely Street Legal

By barely street legal we mean it’s almost too close to call

Supercars are by far the most extreme road going vehicles ever built. They deliver performance similar to race cars, they can be driven with great results on race track, but they were actually designed for public roads, as most of them come with a host of convenience features and state-of-the-art technologies.

However, there are high-performance cars that were actually designed exclusively for the track, but they were also built in road-going specs because carmakers were forced to do it for homologation. These cars are barely legal for street use and were among the most extreme vehicles during their introduction. Here’s a list of the coolest such creations.

New Video Shows Us What the Ferrari 812 Superfast Would Look Like as a Mid-Engined Supercar

New Video Shows Us What the Ferrari 812 Superfast Would Look Like as a Mid-Engined Supercar

It’s basically an F8 Tributo with the styling cues of the 812

Earlier this week we saw the McLaren 765LT being transformed into a front-engined car, basically a competitor for the Ferrari 812 Superfast. Now, someone did it the other way around and turned the Ferrari 812 Superfast into a mid-engined supercar. The transformation belongs to YouTube’s TheSketchMoney, known for his vlogs that include digital mods made to production cars, as well as discussing design features that are cool or not so inspired.

SCG 007 Will Drop Its Twin-Turbo V-6 In Favor Of A Twin-Turbo V-8

WRC engine builder Pipo Moteurs will supply the non-hybrid V-8s

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, so far the only American outfit set to field a prototype built to the new-for-2021 LM Hypercar rules in the FIA World Endurance Championship, has finally settled on its choice of engine for the 007 prototype that will now house a twin-turbocharged V-8 instead of an Alfa Romeo-derived twin-turbocharged V-6 as originally planned.

The SSC Tuatara Accelerates So Hard That You’ll Lose Your Hair

The supercar that might set a new top speed record

The SSC Tuatara is not yet available to customers, but SSC North America is hard at work to deliver its new-generation supercar. The company’s latest YouTube video is titled "Speed" and shows the Tuatara being driven really fast. It seems that the supercar is quite quick from a standstill and the footage taken from the engine compartment reveals an angry and cool-sounding V-8 engine. The video features the hashtag #lifebeginsat300, which confirms that SSC is still planning a record run beyond the 300-mph mark.

2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO by Novitec

The Italian tuner is a master in excess

The Lamborghini Huracan EVO is one of those cars that arguably needs little to no improvement. It already packs a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 631 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. It can split a 60 mph time in just 2.9 seconds and it peaks at a top speed of 201 mph. Lamborghini set up the Huracan EVO to be a monster, but as we’ve seen over and over again, even the fiercest of monsters have levels that they can go up to. That job doesn’t fall on Lamborghini; that falls on the shoulders of aftermarket tuners like Novitec.

The Italian aftermarket company is known far and wide for its elaborate programs for Italy’s finest exotics. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Prancing Horse or a Raging Bull, Novitec can build tuning programs like nobody’s business. Take this kit for the aforementioned Huracan EVO, for example. It’s not enough that the mighty Lambo is what it is; Novitec wants to make it better, and that’s exactly what it did. From an aerodynamic body kit to a new set of wheels to an engine upgrade program, Novitec’s aftermarket program for the Huracan EVO is as extensive as it gets.

This Front-Engined McLaren 765LT Makes the Ferrari 812 Superfast Feel Sad

Would you buy one?

Unlike Ferrari and Lamborghini, McLaren has never built front-engined supercars. The SLR McLaren is an exception, but only because it was a collaboration initiated by Mercedes-Benz. But what if McLaren built cars with the engine placed over the front axle? Instagram’s "j.b.cars" had the same curiosity recently and rendered the familiar 765LT with the engine in the front. And it looks surprisingly cool.

2020 McLaren P1 GTR-18 by Lanzante

2020 McLaren P1 GTR-18 by Lanzante

A longtail version of the P1 GTR and a tribute to the iconic F1 GTR Longtail

The McLaren P1 GTR-18 is an aftermarket conversion of the McLaren P1 supercar performed by Lanzante. The package is essentially an exterior upgrade that enhances aerodynamics, but the cars are also finished in historic racing liveries. Now specialized in servicing and restoration of classic cars, Lanzante used to run its own motorsport team, including the one that won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans with a McLaren F1 GTR under Kokusai Kaihatsu sponsorship. In 2016, Lanzante converted six P1 GTR models to road-legal specs and called them the P1 LM. The P1 GTR-18 is thus Lanzante’s second project based on the P1.

Yes, Mansory has a subtle side. Known for audacious widebody kits, flashy wheels, and in general a lot of distasteful tuning jobs, the tuner shows that it indeed has a down-to-Earth side that manages not to ruin a supercar’s well-balanced stock appearance.

BMW’s Long-Awaited Supercar Will Probably be the i8 M

It could have 600 horsepower, but it won’t be here until 2023

Six years old as of 2020, the BMW i8 is a bit long in the tooth. As a result, BMW decided to end production of the hybrid sports car. The bad news is that the Germans have yet to announce a successor, but a recent report claims that BMW is actually working on a follow-up. And it seems that its spiritual success will be notably more powerful.

Immerse Yourself in the Details Behind the Bugatti Divo's Development

Immerse Yourself in the Details Behind the Bugatti Divo’s Development

The Divo is very different from the Chiron

Bugatti will assemble just 40 Divos. Each one is priced from 5 million euros (around 5.4 million dollars), and that’s before customers get a chance to delve into the options list. Now, you might be inclined to thing that since it already has the Chiron as starting point, Bugatti should stroll through the Divo’s R&D like a hot knife through butter.

In reality, things are a tad more complex. Think a two-year R&D timeframe complex, to start with.
