Among supercar fans, the name Noble is one of those that's whispered by those in the know and Googled by those who aren't. Now the exclusive automaker has unveiled a new M600 at the London Motor Show courtesy of its distributor, Super Veloce Racing. It goes 0-62 in 3.5, 120 in 8.9, and 225 at the end. Read More
The McLaren F1 was the most exciting supercar of its time, and not many cars since have had its level of panache. Now it could be yours (or somebody's, anyway) as McLaren Special Operations Heritage division is selling one of the last F1s ever built, a 1998 model with under 3,000 miles (4,828 km) on the odometer.
Big things are happening in Sweden. One of the world's most impressive cars, the Koenigsegg Agera, is making its way toward retirement. The Agera has had quite a career, bringing intriguing new technologies to market and earning a slew of honors and records. Koenigsegg celebrates that distinguished run with a trio of "Final" editions. No need to get teary eyed for the loss, though; the even more extreme Regera will soon step in as the official Koenigsegg to be seen in. Read More
The Hennessey Venom GT is due to be replaced by the Venom F5 anytime now, but Hennessey's original hyper-Lotus isn't retiring quietly. Even as a lame duck, the Venom GT remains one of the most electrifying cars in the world. Two years after Hennessey set an unofficial 270.49-mph (435.31-km/h) production car speed record in the coupe version, it's raised the bar for convertible supercars by over 11 mph. The Hennessey Venom GT Spyder is now the fastest convertible in the world.Read More
Describing itself as an automotive research and development company, China's Techrules is hell-bent on putting turbines into road-going vehicles. Its first concepts use an ultra-potent, turbine-charged series hybrid powertrain, promising supercar levels of performance and Prius-like fuel economy. While Techrules' claims necessitate a "believe it when we see it" response until the company actually develops something concrete and market-ready, the company does preview the possibility of a bold turbine future.
It's been a couple of years since we've heard anything new from German hypercar maker Gumpert. And that's at least partly because Gumpert doesn't exist anymore, at least not in name. After some corporate reshuffling last year, it was rebranded as Apollo Automobil, a name borrowed from Gumpert's supercar. The new brand is holding its coming out party at the Geneva Motor Show, revealing the all-new Arrow, a sharply styled supercar that combines (Gumpert) Apollo levels of performance with an all-new look.
What sports car lover hasn't imagined attending an auto show where all the cars are super-stylish, high-performance sports coupes uninterrupted by the rough, awkward lines of eco-friendly hatchbacks and everyday sedans? With plenty of regular cars on show, the 2016 Geneva Motor Show isn't quite that show, but it's the closest thing we can recall witnessing. The show's long debut list includes established marques like "Bugatti," "Koenigsegg," "Pagani" and "Lamborghini" and newer players like "Arash," "Rimac" and "Techrules." It all adds up to one of the most stunning displays of carbon fiber styling and earth-rumbling horsepower you'll ever see. Read More
Now that Rimac has a production car ready to go, there seems to be no holding it back. It's put together the most electrifying booth in Geneva, quite literally speaking. Next to the 1,088-hp Concept One supercar is the even faster, more powerful Concept S, the One's "evil twin," along with a matching, unleashed version of the Greyp G12S electric bike. All in all, close to 2,500 horses with current-spiked manes are dashing around Rimac's booth.
Pagani – remember them? Despite having one of the most insane supercars on the planet, you don't hear the name that often because the Modena-based supercar maker isn't constantly developing new cars or model variants (though it is fond of Zonda specials). Judging by the all-new Huayra BC, the current strategy at Pagani HQ is "quality over quantity." More than a simple Huayra special edition, the BC is a reimagined, reengineered masterpiece with "innovative changes in every part of the vehicle." That means more power, less weight and bespoke equipment.
Up until now, McLaren's entire range has been launched with an unashamed focus on out-and-out performance. With a lack of luggage space and track-ready tire setups, the 570S, 650S and 675LT are great performance cars, but not necessarily the right choice for a cross-country jaunt. The 570GT should change all of that, thanks to some extra luggage space, a more luxurious interior and unique suspension tuning.Read More
