The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster makes its public debut aboard the Nave Cavour

With its sharp, angular lines and arrow-shaped front end, the Lamborghini Veneno has always had a slightly military feel about it. So we probably shouldn't be too surprised that the Italian automaker chose the flight deck of the Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour for the public debut of the limited edition Roadster version this week in Abu Dhabi.  Read More

Brilliant drive: The 616 hp 12C Spider (Photo: Angus MacKenzie/gizmag.com)

It’s interesting how a little context will shape one’s opinions. Turns out I’d been an accidental fan of McLaren for years. Before the name became synonymous with Formula 1, and before the release of the iconic F1 supercar in the 90s, there were slotcars. Yes you heard me, slotcars. Going through some old Kodaks, I realized I’d in fact been driving scaled down, electric McLarens since the 70s. So upon learning I’d be driving the full-scale version of McLaren’s 12C Spider, I was as pleased as Scottish schoolboy in September.  Read More

The newest Caterham uses live-axle rear suspension inspired by classic Sevens

The latest generation of track-honed roadsters offer quick, corner-hugging performance at a more affordable price point. However, unless you're in a position to use a fast, furious, roofless two-seater as a daily commuter, a niche track-weekend auto may still be well out of your price range. Caterham is looking to change this with its all-new, entry-level Seven 160 that went up for pre-order this week.  Read More

The track-inspired roadster market continues to grow. In the past few months, we've seen the all-new VŪHL 05, the Caterham AeroSeven, and now, the Zenos E10. Britain's Zenos Cars launched last month with plans to introduce the E10 next year. Based on initial sketches, its first car will be a quick, lightweight roadster that combines classic and modern styling cues.  Read More

The setting is a private house located two miles off a Californian highway, up a very narrow, misty road. There waiting in the driveway is Lamborghini’s $4 million rolling concept, the Veneno. Next to it is the rolling reality of an Aventador LP 700-4, and it's time for a test drive.  Read More

The Torq Roadster will be unveiled to the public on April 6

Epic Electric Vehicles is set to unveil its three-wheeled electric Torq Roadster at a public event on April 6. With the new roadster, Epic founder Chris Anthony has shifted emphasis from range to raw performance and fun (Anthony was also a co-founder of the ill-fated long-range Aptera EV). Clearly, Anthony has his eyes on a very different market this time around – Batman, possibly, if the vehicle's appearance is any gauge.  Read More

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster

Teenage boys the world over have another drool-worthy Lamborghini to plaster on their bedroom walls with the unveiling of the Aventador LP700-4 Roadster.
