2020 McLaren Elva

2020 McLaren Elva

The most radical McLaren to date has no windscreen and pays tribute to a race car from the 1960s

The 2021 McLaren Elva is a brand-new supercar that the British firm added to its Ultimate Series lineup, alongside the Senna and the Speedtail. A two-seat open-cockpit design, it’s inspired by a series of race cars built by Bruce McLaren in the 1960s under the McLaren-Elva name. It’s McLaren’s first open-cockpit road car and its lightest road-going vehicle yet. A track-ready roadster with an aerodynamic design, the 2021 Elva features the most powerful iteration of McLaren’s twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine. Rated at 804 horsepower, it slots above the Senna in terms of power and falls behind only the Speedtail hybrid. Let’s find out more about this beast in the review below.

Bugatti EB110 - A Great Car That Didn't Get The Credit It Deserved

Bugatti EB110 - A Great Car That Didn’t Get The Credit It Deserved

This is everything you need to know about the Bugatti EB110

Many consider the 1990s to be a Golden Age for supercars. Many poster cars have come precisely from this era. I myself have posters and scaled models of many of them. Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari F50, Honda NSX, McLaren F1, Jaguar XJ220, and others some of the most well-known representatives of their time. There is another one, however. The Bugatti EB110 was the French take on a 1990s supercar and, despite being relatively forgotten by some, it was an awesome car. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

2021 Ares Design S1

This is the hottest Corvette-based supercar ever design, but will it go into production?

The Ares Design S1 is an upcoming supercar built by Ares Design, the company led by former Lotus CEO Dany Bahar. The exotic-looking S1 is based on the C8-generation Chevrolet Corvette, borrowing the chassis, engine, gearbox, and electronic underpinnings from the American mid-engined sports car.

Is the S1 just a beefed-up Corvette or a brand-new vehicle with Chevy underpinnings? Let’s find out in the review below.

2020 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

2020 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

A raging electrified bull, the first in Lamborghini’s history

The 2020 Lamborghini Sian is a hybrid supercar that the Italian firm unveiled ahead of the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Powered by a V-12 gasoline engine and an electric motor, the Sian is Lambo’s first mass-produced hybrid. However, the supercar is limited to only 63 units, so it’s actually a preview of things to come, like an electrified successor to the Aventador.

Design-wise, the Sian stands on its own by combining a new design language with styling cues inspired by the iconic Lamborghini Countach. Its interior, on the other hand, is based on the Aventador’s, albeit it comes with bespoke elements and fancier features. The Sian also showcases innovative technology, like a state-of-the-art energy recuperating system and a supercapacitor instead of a traditional lithium-ion battery. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

2022 Bentley Continental GT Speed

2022 Bentley Continental GT Speed

650 horsepower, 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds, and luxurious vibes inside-out sum up the most dynamic Bentley ever made

Bentley has unveiled the 2022 Continental GT Speed and it is one heck of a screamer. The Speed features the Continental GT’s W-12 mill, but makes more power. The transmission, too, is tweaked to shift twice as quickly. These factors allow the Speed to be slightly quicker than the standard Continental GT. Apart from this, some external and internal changes make it look more aggressive and sharper. The automaker has termed it as the “most dynamic road car in Bentley’s 101-year history”, and from the looks of it, it’s hard to argue.

2021 Arctic Fox ARCFOX

2021 Arctic Fox ARCFOX

Can the latest Chinese electric supercar make a strong case for itself?

Very few players in the automotive industry can boast such a rapid rate of progress like the Chinese carmakers. In just two decades, they evolved from making rudimentary three-wheeled transportation devices to producing viable alternatives to many of the established players on the market. This rapid progress does not just extend to normal commuter vehicles either. For 2021, BAIC Group in cooperation with BJEV (Beijing Electric Vehicles) decided to attack the electric supercar market. They are introducing two versions of the Arctic Fox – the ARCFOX GT Race edition and now, the more road-oriented ARCFOX GT.

1997 Nissan R390 GT1

Shedding light on Nissan’s other iconic car

When we talk about legendary Nissan cars, the first one to come to mind is always the GTR, also known as “Godzilla”. Other significant models of the brand include the Silvia and Fairlady Z models, but there is one more that has largely been forgotten – the R390. Skyline’s heritage and success largely overshadowed anything else the brand came up with. In addition, the 1990s spawned many great supercars, one of which the McLaren F1. Whether that’s the reason for the Nissan R390’s fall into obscurity, these are all the important facts you want to know about Nissan’s mid-engine supercar.

2014 Falcon F7 - The Supercar You Didn't Know Existed

2014 Falcon F7 - The Supercar You Didn’t Know Existed

A few years ago, the Falcon F7 proved a point. Why did people forget about it?

Supercars are near the top of the automotive food chain when it comes to performance and engineering. Because of this, they can be quite expensive to develop. When you hear supercar, you probably think Ferrari or Lamborghini – two brands backed up by the financial might of their parent companies. But in 2014, an engineer and car enthusiast named Jeff Lemke proved that you don’t need the financial might of a big car company to build a proper supercar. In 2014 he made the Falcon F7. Here’s everything you need to know about this almost entirely home-built supercar.

1993 McLaren F1

1993 McLaren F1

Arguably the most iconic supercar of the 1990s

Update: The Spiritual Successor to the McLaren F1 - the Gordon Murrage T.50 - has launched with a similar three-seat configuration and ultra-lightweight, Cosworth-built engine, and the most impressive aerodynamic system of any supercar on the market today. Check out our full review of the Gordon Murray T.50 or all of our recent coverage of it

The McLaren F1 was unveiled in May 1992 and was the company’s first road-going production car. The idea was born in the late 1980s, when Gordon Murray, the technical director of McLaren’s Formula One, began sketching the F1 as a three-seat supercar. Appointed as head of McLaren Cars in 1991, Murray convinced Ron Dennis to build the vehicle and played a key role in the design of the F1. It was unlike any other supercar launched up to that point. It had a race-inspired design, a three-seat configuration with the driver seat in the middle, and a comfortable ride for a vehicle of its kind. It was also the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof.

Not only powerful and quick, the F1 was also the world’s fastest production car. Its record endured from 1992 until 2005, when Bugatti unleashed the ludicrous Veyron. The F1 spawned a couple of special-edition models such as the LM and the GT, but it was also used as a base for the GTR race car. Essentially a standard F1 with aerodynamic improvements, the GTR went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its first year on the race track.

Some 25 years have passed since its introduction and the F1 is already considered a classic. Usually changing owners for millions of dollars, the F1 is one of the very few multi-million-dollar supercars built in the 1990s.

Lamborghini’s Motorsport division, Squadra Corse, is back with another one-off project called the SC20, following the SC18 Alston and the SCV12. With a blue and white theme all around, the supercar takes inspiration from a lot of other bulls from the company’s portfolio.

Maranello’s mighty supercar gets the Novitec treatment

Novitec is back in the car tuning spotlight with a new aftermarket program. This time, the German tuner is setting its sights on the Ferrari 812 GTS with a promise of aesthetic and aerodynamic improvements to go with an engine upgrade kit that bumps the Ferrari’s 6.5-liter V-12 engine’s output to almost 850 horsepower.

If you didn’t think the Aventador SVJ Cabrera couldn’t get better, Mansory’s tune will surprise you

Mansory is famous for taking some of the world’s most exotic supercars and turning them into examples of excess car tuning. No supercar is spared from a Mansory tuning creation, including the already radical Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.

SCG’s race car for the road is exactly what the label says

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus – aka SCG – knows a thing or two about racing. So, when they say the SCG 003S is a race car for the road, something we hear way too often these days, you can bet that is exactly what they mean.

Developed with the expertise gained from racing at Le Mans or the Nurburgring, the SCG 003S is hand-built from the ground up in Sleepy Hollow, New York. And as you can imagine, it is nothing to sneeze at. Let us take a closer look.

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.

Carrozzeria Touring is back to turn your Ferrari F12 into a retrolicious, exclusive grand tourer
