SCG 007 Will Drop Its Twin-Turbo V-6 In Favor Of A Twin-Turbo V-8
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 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 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
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.
Watch In Amazement as the Bugatti Chiron Peaks At 261 MPH
The Bugatti Chiron might not be the fastest production car in the world, this prize goes to the Chiron Super Sport 300+ at 304 mph, but it’s still amazingly fast at a 261 mph. The fact that it ranks fifth in our The 10 Fastest Cars in the World Ranked speaks volumes about what it can do in standard form. And the cool thing is that any owner has access to that mind-boggling benchmark through the car’s special Speed Key. And race car driver Andy Wallace, the man who hit 304 mph in the Chiron Super Sport 300+, demonstrates how to use it.
BMW M Next Hypercar - AKA the i8 M - Is Reportedly Cancelled
2020 McLaren P1 GTR-18 by Lanzante
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.

BMW’s Long-Awaited Supercar Will Probably be the i8 M
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
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.
This is What a Real, Entry-Level Koenigsegg Supercar Could Look Like
The digital concept that you see here wasn’t exactly commissioned by Koenigsegg, and there’s a good chance that it won’t find it’s way to production, but it was designed under the supervision of Sasha Selipanov and Christian von Koenigsegg as a graduation thesis for Finnish design Ea Mustonen. It’s called the Koenigsegg Raw, features a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, and could represent an entry-level model in the lineup should it manage to be green-lit for production.
We Might Not See a New Ferrari This Year After All
2019 kicked off a massive range expansion for the Ferrari brand with the introduction of the F8 Tributo, SF90 Stradale, and the Roma. Those represent just 3 of the 15 new models that Ferrari is planning to introduce between now and 2024, but with the COVID pandemic looming over everyone’s head, the expectation for Ferrari to unveil two new models this year on schedule has been up in the air. Now, we’ve learned that Ferrari has plans to amend its plans for the rest of the year in an investor’s presentation in May 2020, so the outlook isn’t exactly the best. Ferrari wanted 2020 to be a year of consolidation, and it could turn out to be more consolidating than anyone expected.
