The Hyperion XP-1 Could Prove That Hydrogen Is In and Battery-Electric Performance Is Out
The Hyperion XP-1 has literally been in the works for five years, after the then-five-year-old energy company released a very random teaser for a car with extreme supercar proportions. It was five years after that before we saw or heard anything else about it, which came in the form a revised teaser image with an even better-looking silhouette.

2021 Ferrari Portofino by Mansory
Ferrari unveiled the Portofino at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show. Launched as a successor to the California T, the Portofino sits at the bottom of the company’s hierarchy. Being the entry-level model, it is one of the most important products for the Italian automaker. The sales numbers reflect its popularity, and that is perhaps why it is quite a hit amongst aftermarket companies, too.
German aftermarket company, Mansory, has come up with its unique take on the Ferrari Portofino. Surprisingly, it isn’t as wild asother Mansory builds we’ve seen so far. The forged carbon elements along with the yellow and black theme make this Italian car with a German twist look sweeeeet. And, did I mention it now makes over 700 horses and takes just three seconds to sprint to 62 mph?

Ferrari Is Teaching An Old Dog New Tricks and Pushing The Limits of Engineering
It was May 5th, 2021 when Ferrari revealed the 812 Competizione – an extra-light, 830-horsepower, limited run version of the812 Superfast. Limited production, design, and the ability of the engine to rev to 9,500 RPM aside, the primary reason this car was special is because that high-revving 6.5-liter V-12 sending power to the rear wheels is the most powerful V-12 Ferrari has ever put in a vehicle. That, however, is about to change, because Ferrari can teach that old dog a few new tricks.
SSC Just Went Crazy With the Tuatara Striker and Tuatara Aggressor
SSC Tuatara was in the news for being the world’s fastest production car. We’ll not get into the drama that unfolded regarding the record-setting run since the company has some other news for us. SSC has unveiled two iterations of the 1,750-horsepower Tuatara called the Striker and Aggressor. What’s special about them, you ask? More power in one and higher power-handling capabilities, especially downforce, in the other. Crazy, right?
The McLaren Elva Actually Looks Good With Its Tiny Little Windscreen
Speedsters seem to be all the business nowadays, as multiple manufacturers have come up with one. McLaren is one of them and, in 2019, it gave us the McLaren Elva. Just like some of the other car manufacturers that have delved into topless supercars, the people at McLaren have given the Elva many design cues from the 1960s original. One of Elva’s distinctive features is the lack of a windshield – some speedsters have a small one. However, that’s about to change.
Lamborghini Just Isn’t For Sale, Shoots Down $9.2 Billion Deal
Lamborghini is a very interesting manufacturer at the moment. This is due to its refusal to give up the big normally-aspirated V-12, in times of downsizing and hybridization. Even AMG – a company largely defined by its handmade V-8 engines, has switched to turbocharged inline-fours. And although we know that Lamborghini’s future vehicles will feature hybrid tech, they are not willing to give up their V-12 flagships.
Hennessey’s Future Plans Includes More Cars, But the Venom F5 Is the Limit
Hennessey made itself known as the company that does ridiculous tunes on everything from the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 to building the obscene 2019 Chevy Silverado Goliath 6x6 which was followed by the 2013 Venom GT Spyder, the 2014 Venom GT2, and finally an updated version of the Venom GT in 2016. All versions of the Venom GT were based on the Lotus Elise but it’s latest car, which was originally showed in 2015 – the Venom F5 – was a lot less Lotus and a lot more Hennessey. The production model of the Venom F5 was finally revealed in late 2020, and as it turns out, it represents the glass ceiling for bespoke Hennessey cars.
