Rimac's 1088-hp Concept_One hypercar is finally more than a concept

When the Concept_One was first revealed back in 2011, the all-electric vehicle's spec sheet was hard to believe. Despite this, Rimac Automobili said it was aiming to deliver a limited production run in 2013, and even opened its order book in 2012. Better late than never, the Concept-One is not just a concept anymore, with Rimac set to unveil a production version of the car at the Geneva Motor Show next month.Read More

1,030-hp Chinese supercar concept with turbine range extender to go the distance in Geneva

It's been a few years since turbine-equipped electric supercars were in vogue, but they're making a semi-comeback at the Geneva Motor Show. Beijing-based Techrules will reveal a 1,030-bhp (768 kW) electric supercar concept that uses a range-extending turbine to roll its tires for more than 1,200 miles per fill-up. We're taking those numbers with a shaker of salt, but the company's turbine tech should definitely make for an interesting topic at the show.

Tracing automotive bloodlines: Gizmag goes exploring at Dutton Garage

The pace of automotive development is so fast that it's easy to forget that every generation has its own supercar heroes. The cream of today's technologically advanced automotive crop would not exist without the supercars of the past – cars that took risks with crazy styling, innovative technology and a desire to go faster than anyone else had gone before. We recently spent an afternoon at Dutton Garage in Melbourne, Australia, slaking our supercar thirst and tracking down some of the cars that really moved the game on when they were first launched.Read More

The best gets better: Bugatti confirms Geneva debut for all-new Chiron

Production of the Bugatti Veyron ended earlier this year, leaving a void up around the top of the supercar food chain. That void will be filled soon enough with a Veyron successor, but while there have been plenty of unconfirmed rumors and reports about the "Chiron" not much has come from Bugatti itself. That will all change this week, with Bugatti set to confirm both the model's name and its coming debut at next year's Geneva Motor Show. In just a few months, the world's fastest car gets an even more capable successor.

Rezvani reveals hardcore 700-hp Beast X roadster

We can't imagine there were many people that saw the recently finalized Rezvani Beast and thought, "Gosh, that 1,650-lb (748-kg) roadster is woefully underpowered at 500 hp." But the Southern California boutique believes there are at least five such customers out there willing to spend double the price on a suped-up, twin-turbo two-seater. For them, there's the all-new Beast X.Read More

W Motors brings 900-hp Fenyr Supersport to life in Dubai

The average supercar company has a way of debuting like an angry lion casting a long, booming roar across an otherwise still, silent savannah. Rarely was that ever as true as it was for W Motors, the Dubai-based supercar maker that in 2013 introduced itself with a car it fancied the world's most expensive, luxurious and exclusive: the $3.4 million 750-hp Lykan Hypersport. Funny thing, as wild of a debut as that was, it didn't prove W Motors' most powerful supercar for very long. That title now belongs to the all-new Fenyr Supersport, which debuted this week and stole a roaring lion's share of the spotlight from its pretty-boy brother.

Hennessey adds 200 hp and more speed to the world's fastest car

Koenigsegg may be the one pushing the idea of a 1 hp/1 kg car, but Hennessey beat it there by a few years with the 1,200-kg, 1,200-hp Venom GT. That car set an unofficial world speed record a hair under 270.5 mph (435.3 km/h) in 2014. And it's still not good enough for John Hennessey, who has stuffed another 207 horses into his supercar in a bid to ensure it remains one of the world's most powerful cars. Gotta keep up with the Koenigseggs and Bugattis, after all. It's all part of the 2,875 horses that Hennessey will storm SEMA with next week.
