Toyota is flexing its hyper-performance muscle hard with help from Gazoo Racing

2020 didn’t suck entirely for the car world, and other than the usual suspects, we were teased with a handful of upcoming hypercars. For example, Toyota took to Le Mans to unveil its first-ever hypercar in front of the public.

While unveil is a big word, really - we only saw a heavy-camouflaged prototype lapping the Circuit de la Sarthe track, the presentation came with a couple of specs and numbers. Until Toyota decides to fully loosen its lips on the topic, here’s all we know so far about the GR Super Sport hypercar.

Power comes from the same 6.3-liter V-12 engine rated at 730 horsepower. Only 15 units will be built, all based on F12berlinetta cars provided by the customers.

2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition

2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition

Audi’s famous — and exclusive — paint finish returns to the spotlight with the R8 Panther

Audi’s bringing back the rear-wheel-drive R8 as a regular production model and because — for the most part — we’ve been good boys and girls this year, Audi’s also giving the U.S. market the added treat of a limited edition model called the R8 Panther Edition. The special edition R8 is exclusive to the Land of the Free, and, among other exclusive goodies, the R8 Panther wears a special paint color that Audi rarely uses. No doubt the Panther Black crystal effect paint solidifies the R8 Panther’s special edition status, just as it did on the RS5 Panther Edition that debuted at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. Only 30 units of the R8 RWD Panther are headed to the U.S. where they’ll be sold through select dealerships beginning this month. Each unit of the R8 RWD Panther will carry a starting price of $186,495, including the $1,495 destination charge on top of a $1,700 gas guzzler tax.

2021 McLaren 620R by Novitec

2021 McLaren 620R by Novitec

German tuner unleashes the Mac’s inner beast

The McLaren 620R is one of those performance cars that look great on paper. It packs 610 horsepower and is capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. But despite the numbers and its status as the road-spec version of the 570S GT4, there’s something about the 620R that makes you wonder if there’s untapped potential that can be unleashed with a few tweaks here and there.

Novitec probably had similar questions, but unlike all of us, the tuner could actually do something about it. And it did, thanks to a new program that unleashes more power from the supercar’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine.

2020 Ferrari Monza SP1 by Novitec

2020 Ferrari Monza SP1 by Novitec

Novitec’s tuning program for the Monza SP1 will blow your mind!

The Ferrari Monza SP1 is a rare breed, even for Ferrari’s standards. It’s limited to just 500 units with the equally audacious Monza SP2, the Monza SP1 is a proper Ferrari speedster that carries 799 horsepower from its 6.5-liter V-12 engine. It’s properly powerful as all speedsters should be, but there really is no such thing as too much power, is there? German tuning firm Novitec swears by that motto, and the Monza SP1 benefits from it. What kind of aftermarket program did Novitec create for the fanciful Monza SP1? Let’s find out.

2021 McLaren Senna GTR LM

2021 McLaren Senna GTR LM

The McLaren Senna GTR LM is a series of unique cars that pay tribute to McLaren’s 1995 Le Mans campaign

The 2020 McLaren Senna GTR LM is a limited-edition version of the Senna GTR.

The 2020 Senna GTR LM shouldn’t be confused with the 2020 Senna LM.The latter also celebrates 25 years since McLaren won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and it’s also limited to five cars, but it was commissioned by two U.S. McLaren dealerships. And while the Senna LM is based on the regular Senna, the Senna GTR LM is built around the track-only Senna GTR model.

2020 Aston Martin Victor

2020 Aston Martin Victor

The Victor is a unique Aston Martin based on the mighty One-77

The 2020 Aston Martin Victor is a bespoke, one-off supercar developed by the company’s Q division. Built around a carbon-fiber monocoque from the One-77, a car that Aston Martin offered from 2009 to 2012, the Victor draws styling cues from the V8 Vantage of 1970s, as well as the race-spec DBS V8 (also known as the RHAM/1) that Aston Martin built in the late 1970s for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The 2020 Victor is powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 also sourced from the One-77, but some drivetrain components come from the much newer Valkyrie supercar. Q by Aston Martin built just one, so it’s one of those supercars that you can only hope to see in the metal at a fancy auto show.

2021 McLaren 620R with MSO R Pack

2021 McLaren 620R with MSO R Pack

There’s nothing inherently wrong with more carbon fiber, right?

McLaren’s road-spec 620R is one of the most hardcore machines to come out of Woking, England in recent years. Not only is it the most powerful “Sports Series” McLaren in the lineup, but it was developed specifically to go fast. Nothing about the 620R counts as subtle, and that includes McLaren’s new “R Pack,” which the automaker is launching to make what is already a hardcore supercar even more hardcore.

2021 Brabham BT62R

2021 Brabham BT62R

You know what’s better than the Brabham BT62? The BT62R because you can drive it on the road

You know how when an automaker adds the letter "R" to the end of a model’s nameplate you feel the urge to yawn because here you have yet another potentially lackluster attempt at a ’sporty’ or, maybe, ’track-focused’ version of said model? Well, with Brabham’s BT62R the whole thing has been turned on its head.

While the BT62 is the track-only, ultra-noisy, not-really-comfy version, the BT62R is the one you can drive on the street. Just about any street, too. Confusing? Maybe, but does it really matter when you consider that, finally, we’re getting a BT62 that’s road legal in more than a couple of countries?

2020 McLaren Senna LM

2021 Czinger 21C

2021 Czinger 21C

Digitally designed, robotically assembled, possibly groundbreaking

Czinger is not a new name in the car realm. Those of you who remember the 2015 Divergent Blade know it was conceived by Divergent Technologies, whose CEO and founder is Kevin Czinger, who is now also leading California’s Czinger Vehicles. Their first hypercar is called the 21C and it should have made a proper physical debut in Geneva, but it wasn’t meant to be. Still, the 21C is an amazing, forward-thinking hypercar and we’re here to get you up to speed with it.
