It is difficult to properly qualify Lucra. One the one hand, they produce an insanely fast bare-bones supercar, the LC470. They call it “STREET LEGAL…but just barely.” On the other hand, they provide custom parts and carbon fiber shells on a bespoke, for-hire basis. They also have begun work providing stunt cars for a certain car-related movie franchise. In short, Lucra does a lot, and they are changing the way that we look at the custom car industry.

The Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards set forth by the Obama administration has been called the single most important aspect in shaping the future of the automotive industry. It is hard to argue with that. Given our current love of speed and need for large trucks in our infrastructure, we still have a healthy thirst for fuel, which makes the CAFE industry goals of 35.5 MPG by 2016 and 54.5 MPG by 2025 an incredibly daunting task.
Along with the likes of the LaFerrari and McLaren P1, the Porsche 918 Spyder has been one of the most anticipated hybrid supercars in recent history. Now, after testing and teasing the arachnid for well over a year, Porsche finally dropped some new details on our laps regarding the new supercar.
Come May 24th, we should get a handsome look at the newly-born partnership between BMW and Pininfarina, via the Gran Lusso Coupe concept. Or as most would recognize, a reborn rendition of the long-lost 8-Series.
BMW has been trying to largely revamp its lineup with a pairing of new concepts like the 4-Series and the X4- and in general, a whole new set of lines throughout. But sometimes it’s more than just a nip here and a tuck there. BMW might be shooting for the moon with an M8 supercar, due sometime in 2016.
If you were not already aware, Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th birthday…pretty much all year. The Italian supercar maker has splurged, with special edition road cars, and nearly one-of-a-kind track machines. The latest present to itself is this creation; the 2013 Lamborghini Egoista. It is a mind-melting, single-seat supercar, with a 600-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 under the stealth-like bonnet. It looks as though it could take flight at any moment. We like.
Our boldest ride of the week comes to us via a certain German automaker who has a certain bag of tricks up their collective sleeves. Volkswagen- and the courageously built Design Vision GTI.
But it’s not just any old 200-hp GTI, mind you, the Design Vision comes filled with nearly 500 ponies up to the brim. The 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 manages 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds and continues on to a top speed of somewhere in the market of 188 mph.
I’ll put a safe bet down to say that Jon Olsson is one of the most badass dudes on the planet. Pro skier, gearhead, entrepreneur, and now, automotive designer sort of. This is his unbearably gorgeous, completely road-legal creation- the Rebellion R2k. Pretty much a Le Mans car made for the road.
Every year at the Worthersee Festival in Austria, Volkswagen- along with any number of brands under the corporate umbrella- bring forth a set of concepts which stand out from the usual list of suspects. Like a 500-hp GTI. Yup, that’s definitely something you don’t see everyday.
Well, it might be. Because, as we know Jaguar has already touted the idea of a hardtop version of the much-loved F-Type sometime in the near future (and a wagon, not that that matters). And as we’ve seen in the past via the C-X16 concept, it would turn out to be a damn pretty thing.
