2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo N-Largo by Novitec

The Ferrari F8 Tributo with the N-Largo treatment comes with a carbon widebody kit, new wheels, enhanced power, and is limited to just 15 examples

Ferrari launched the F8 Tributo as the 488 GTB’s successor in 2019.

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.

2019 Lamborghini SC18 Alston

2019 Lamborghini SC18 Alston

A one-off supercar with aero inspired by the world of motorsport

From the outrageous styling, to the thumping V-12 powerplant, to the breathtaking performance, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is anything but boring. But that’s not stopping one lucky owner from turning the volume knob up to 11 on their Raging Bull. Say hello to the SC18 Alston, which comes with race-spec aero and a track-ready attitude to set it apart from its more “standard” brethren. And although it’s designed for track use, the SC18 Alston is still road-legal, bringing the best of both worlds into wing-tastic harmony.

2021 Hennessey Venom F5 Mojave Gold

2021 Hennessey Venom F5 Mojave Gold

Hennessey unveiled the 1,800+ horsepower Venom F5 in Mojave Gold shade at the Monterey Car Week and it costs $2.1 million a pop

Hennessey brought the Venom F5 to the Monterey Car Week finished in Mojave Yellow shade. While everyone knows the prowess of this beast, the tuner used this opportunity to show that the Venom F5 needs to be appreciated for its looks too. There is a generous use of carbon fiber inside the cabin along with white leather upholstery. It seems like an odd-ball choice, but the contrasting colors of the exterior and interior gel well.

The car is powered by a 6.6-liter, V-8 engine that puts out 1,817 horses and 1,193 pound-feet of torque. This is a lot more than the Venom GT that made 1,244 horses and 1,155 pound-feet of torque. As for the performance specs, it can sprint to 60 mph from rest in just 2.2 seconds, and from 0-124 mph in 4.7 seconds. The top speed is said to be over 300 mph, but this is theoretical for now and there’s no official confirmation on this yet.

Production is capped at 24 examples and it is priced at $2.1 million. The yellow example you see here is Chassis 2 of 24. At the Monterey Car Week, Hennessey positioned it alongside a Venom F5 finished in Speed Devil Blue; the color in which the car debuted last year.

2024 Bugatti Bolide - The Track-only Hypercar Will Enter Production And Arrive In 2024

2024 Bugatti Bolide - The Track-only Hypercar Will Enter Production And Arrive In 2024

The production-spec Bolide will make 1,578 horses, a lot less than the concept, and is limited to just 40 examples

Bugatti has announced a new extreme version of the Chiron. They did so at Quail, at this year’s prestigious Monterey Car Week. Dubbed the Bolide, it is a car with a name that is as cliché as its design. "But didn’t Bugatti take the wraps off of the Bolide last year?" Well, you’re right. However, the Bolide Super sports car you saw last October was just a concept, and Bugatti has now decided to put the Bolide into production.

2022 Ford GT '64 Heritage Edition

2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition

Another Ford GT Heritage Edition that pays homage to a yesteryear model; this time, the 1964 Ford GT/105 prototype

Ford has just showcased its seventh Ford GT Heritage Edition – the 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition, to be exact. Just like all the previous Heritage models, this one pays tribute to one specific car from the past, and in this case, it’s the 1964 Ford GT prototype.

This 2022 GT Heritage Edition is finished in Wimbledon White paint with Antimatter Blue graphics and rides on 20-inch Antimatter carbon fiber wheels finished in blue. Behind those wheels sit Brembo brake calipers lacquered in silver with black graphics. The rest of the exterior is littered with carbon fiber components, including the following:

Front splitter Side sills Mirror stalks Engine louvers Rear Diffuser

Meanwhile, inside the GT Heritage Edition, you’ll find seats wrapped in Lightspeed Blue Alcantara with the GT logo placed on the seating surfaces and head restraints. The instrument panel is wrapped in Ebony leather Light Speed Blue Alcantara, with Antimatter blue accents on the dash, door bezels, and seat X-braces. Finally, there’s healthy doses of carbon fiber where appropriate. As for pricing, well that’s a complete mystery, but expect it to be well above the standard GT’s entry price of $500,000. This car will be shown off to the public at Monterey Car Week next to the only remaining 1964 Ford GT prototype in existence: the GT/105.

2021 Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider – A Valkyrie That Can Touch Speeds Of 205 mph With The Roof Off!

2021 Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider – A Valkyrie That Can Touch Speeds Of 205 mph With The Roof Off!

The Valkyrie Spider is limited to 85 examples and comes with an open top, but loses the gullwing doors

Aston Martin had unveiled the AM-RB 001 concept back in 2016. It went into production a year later and came out with the ‘Valkyrie’ moniker. It hasn’t been an easy ride for the British automaker with this product, one instance being the hypercar suffering from a $7-part failure that killed its debut run at the Goodwood FoS, but Aston Martin is going at it with full determination.

Adding a third model to the Valkyrie’s lineup after a coupe and a track-only AMR Pro version, Aston Martin has unveiled the Valkyrie Spider – an open-top version that retains the same performance but loses on the roof and the gullwing doors.

2021 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 - A Sian And Aventador With The Original Countach's Design Cues

2021 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 - A Sian And Aventador With The Original Countach’s Design Cues

The new Lamborghini Countach features an 800+ horsepower hybrid V-12 engine and is limited to 112 examples

When Lamborghini announced that the ‘Countach’ nameplate is making a comeback, it took the whole world by storm. The company teased in twice in quick succession earlier this week, hoping to create some hype before eventually unveiling it. However, the car was leaked right after the Italian automaker teased it on its social media. A day later, Lamborghini has taken the wraps off it.

The Countach nameplate is revived on its 50th anniversary and it seems to be the Sian and Aventador’s lovechild with the design cues of the original Countach. It is powered by a V-12 mill with an electric motor that puts out over 800 horses. It will be limited to just 112 examples.

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.
