Finland's Toroidion electrifies the street with 1,341-hp 1MW concept car

Normally more of a place a car manufacturer might go to cold-test its latest sports car, Finland is sliding its name into supercar design in a rather big, bold way. The all-new Toroidion 1MW concept car was designed, developed and built entirely in Finland. The car wrestles the title of world's most powerful all-electric supercar away from the Rimac Concept One. At a full megawatt (1,341 hp), it's one of the most powerful supercars, period. Besides sheer power, the car showcases some interesting technologies with a wide range of potential applications, from a scalable powertrain to a fast-swap battery system. Read More

Ferrari Heaven at the Australian Motoring Festival

Koenigsegg creates a new breed of hyper-hybrid with 1,500-hp, transmission-less Regera

Don't call it a hybrid. Christian von Koenigsegg doesn't like the term or the compromises he feels it implies. So although his all-new 1,500-hp (1.11 MW) supercar is the absolute top dog in the growing market of hyper-hybrids, he refuses to refer to it as such. When your car routes 1,100 hp and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of V8 muscle through a 700-hp electric drive (there is no gearbox), you can pretty much call your car whatever the heck you want. Koenigsegg calls it the Regera and positions it as the absolute king of the road. We call it the most insane piece of supercar engineering we've ever covered.Read More

Koenigsegg builds on experience with 1,160-hp Agera RS

Within the world of boutique supercars, Koenigsegg is pretty much sitting at the top of the heap. There are many arguments to support this, but perhaps one of the best is sitting on the company's show stand at Geneva right now. It's called the Koenigsegg Agera RS, its engine cranks out a staggering 1,160-hp and everything on it is designed and built in house. Read More

McLaren 675LT will be lightest and most powerful of McLaren's Super Series

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.Read More

Aston Martin takes wraps off the Vulcan

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
