Well here's a complete non-surprise. McLaren is taking its latest and greatest road car to the track with the intent of racing and winning. Christened the 675LT, it's loaded with enough technology and boasts enough performance to be a serious contender right off the trailer, and although success in racing is never guaranteed, betting against McLaren has often been shown to be a fool's errand.

When an Aston Martin promises "extreme performance," it's time to get out of the way. After weeks of teasing, the company is lifting the lid on the Aston Martin Vulcan; its new track-only V12 supercar. Set to make it debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show, it's based on Aston Martin's GT motorsport experience and will be limited to only 24 units. Read More
With a 577-hp biturbo V8 powering a 0-60 mph time of just 3.9 seconds, the Mercedes S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe isn't exactly a slouch. Or at least it didn't seem that way before German tuner Brabus turned it into an out-and-out power-n-speed machine. The S63-based Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe bolts to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and doesn't stop accelerating until the needle hits 217 mph. Read More
The Geneva International Motor Show is traditionally the coming out party for the best that European car makers have to offer, and that extends down to smaller, specialty makers such as Spania, which will be be rolling out a new model of its GTA Spano supercar at this year's show. Read More
McLaren is really taking the time to pat itself on the back for winning Le Mans back in 1995. The P1 GTR is being billed as an homage to the F1 GTR Le Mans winner, and we thought that'd be the extent of its anniversary celebration. This week, though, it revealed the 650S Le Mans, a special edition designed to give another hat tip to the past. The upgraded version of the mid-level McLaren borrows design cues from the F1 GTR.

At last year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, McLaren showed the P1 GTR design concept, previewing its most powerful, exclusive model to date. After intensive testing and fine-tuning, McLaren is nearly ready to introduce the production version, announcing plans to do so at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March. The already light, virile P1 is about to get even more outrageous. Read More
California startup Renovo Motors showed off the ageless Shelby body and electric powertrain of its Renovo Coupe at last year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, but it waited until this year's CES to open up the doors to the car's high-tech interior. Now that it has, it's put together all the pieces of an authentically-bodied Shelby with 500-hp electric powertrain and cutting-edge Nvidia Tegra X1-powered infotainment system ... a strange but alluring combination if ever there was one.

The Acura NSX finally made it into production specification today in Detroit and, as expected, the wait has been worthwhile. The internal combustion engine is now hyperventilating with twin-turbos instead of the naturally-aspirated version we saw previously, it boasts three electric motors and pushes more than 550 hp through a nine-speed dual clutch transmission, while the price tag will be in the vicinity of US$150,000 when it lands later this year.

It hasn't been making the speediest trot to production, but the all-new Acura NSX is finally rounding the corner toward the finish line. Acura announced this week that the production car will debut at the North American International Auto Show, the same venue where the concept version first premiered three years ago. Read More
Like its competitors in the premium car segment, Aston Martin is always looking for ways to make its customers feel more special in their high-end performance cars. Pursuit of that goal leads to regular special editions like the Vantage N430 and DB9 Carbon Black revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show. Its latest special edition release goes beyond the usual custom equipment, aesthetics and trim, with each of the six individual Works 60th Anniversary models featuring metal recycled from the engine of a heritage Aston Martin.
