Supercars

There are sports car names you hear ad nauseum, your Porsches, Ferraris and Lamborghinis, for example. Then there are names that you hear whispered every few years. Mazzanti is one of the latter, but this time it's not whispering but shouting at the top of its lungs. Its message is a big, grunting 700-hp muscle mass that beckons you with suicide doors. Read More
It seems the only constant at international auto shows these days is a new Veyron special edition. Bugatti has been unloading these superficial Veyron updates one by one, in an effort to keep attracting buyers to the decade-old model. The latest such special edition brings a little more intrigue than the average package, recalling what Bugatti calls "one of the first ever street legal super cars." Read More
Ultra-powerful, world-speed-record supercars are earning a lot of attention lately. Hot on the heels of Hennessey's 270.49-mph (435.31 km/h) speed record and Koenigsegg's 1-megawatt One:1, we have an all-new contender from a young American start-up. Trion Supercars' Nemesis is an angry, 2,000-hp beast that has its eyes on the world record territory north of 270 mph (435 km/h). Read More

One of the wildest cars at the Geneva Motor Show, the Nanoflowcell Quant e-Sportlimousine is a research prototype that's powered by salt water. More accurately, it's powered by a flow battery that uses a special formula of ionic charge-carrying salt water as its storage medium. Not content to just electrify an average powertrain, Nanoflowcell uses its technology to send 912 horses into an all-out frenzy of spinning, smoking rubber. Read More

The Geneva Auto Show has a reputation for being the place for auto designers to display their most exotic work. In the case of Italy’s Pagani, known for its less than subtle approach to extreme automobiles, that means the 800 hp Zonda Revolucion. Read More

Take note of these numbers: 1,341 hp to 1,360 kg. It's a ratio that gives the latest hypercar from Sweden's Koenigsegg the potential to be the fastest car on Earth, with a listed 273-mph (440 km/h) top speed. It also gives the car its name: One:1. That's one horse for every kilo, or close enough to round up without thinking twice. Starting with the already ultra powerful, lightweight Agera, Koenigsegg reached deep into its bag of tricks to strip more weight, add more downforce and create one of the world's most extreme machines.
