Sino-Italian supercar boutique Icona set the auto world ablaze back in 2013, revealing its Vulcano supercar at the Shanghai Auto Show and later showing it at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Two years later, it's finally doused the flames with the cooling effects of raw titanium. It calls the new Vulcano Titanium the world's first titanium car.
Lamborghini gave the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce an even sexier sibling over the weekend, revealing the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The half-million-dollar roadster packages the blistering performance of the Superveloce with a little more blue sky overhead, hitting the road as one of the hottest convertibles we've ever seen.
McLaren’s 570S heralded the start of a new model line for the British manufacturer, one that begins at a far more reasonable price point than the one offered up by its lightning-quick 650S. Gizmag got an up-close look at the new 570S, before sitting down with McLaren’s Asia-Pacific Director David McIntyre for a chat about the brand’s move "downmarket."
Just a month after announcing its entry into the bespoke automotive aftermarket, Maryland-based carbon fiber atelier Vitesse AuDessus (that's "Superior Speed" in French) has introduced a new carbon fiber wheel. The hollow, single-piece wheel appears quite similar in design to the Aircore wheel that Koenigsegg uses on its Agera R and One:1 hypercars, only this wheel can lighten and liven everything from Lamborghinis, to McLarens, to Porsches, assuming the owner is willing to drop the price of an Audi A4 to get a set.
We knew it was only a matter of time before the Ferrari 488 GTB got a Spider version, and that time has officially arrived. The all-new 488 Spider opens the roof on Ferrari's 660-hp turbocharged V8 two-door, and one of the world's favorite exotic cars gets that much better yet again.
We first learned of Sin Cars at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it showed the aggressive R1. The company has since been heavily involved in racing and has been evolving its road car design. This month, Sin revealed the finalized version of its road-going supercar ahead of a September launch at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Automobiles have made great strides in recent years in becoming cleaner and greener, but according to Divergent Microfactories, they still have miles to go. The problem, as the company sees it, is that while powertrains have become cleaner thanks to the use of alternative energy sources like battery power and fuel cells, manufacturing is dirtier than ever. The start-up puts forth a solution in the all-new Blade, which it calls "the world's first 3D-printed supercar."
This weekend saw the eighth Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (CPOP) in Cheshire, UK. The show is set in the grounds of Cholmondeley Castle. The only things more spectacular than the setting were the cars, bikes, watercraft and aircraft on display. Gizmag went for a look.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles joined the likes of Infiniti,Peugeot and a slew of other automakers this week, revealing its Vision Gran Turismo video game car. Like all those parties before it, FCA took full advantage of the opportunity, creating an outright extreme hypercar with a level of performance that can only exist in a game. The single-seat SRT Tomahawk sports car develops nearly 2,600 hp from a hybrid powertrain with V10 and air compression drive.
Since we last looked at the Mazzanti Evantra, the Italian supercar entered limited production. That isn't stopping Mazzanti from revealing newly specced show cars to tantalize the eyes and minds of the rich and famous, however. Last month, the boutique supercar maker once again added some flair to Top Marques Monaco, revealing a marble-white Evantra with an upgraded 751-hp powertrain.
