The Ferrari LaFerrai is the pinnacle of automotive performance. It is a supercar with few, if any rivals, featuring a 6.3-liter V12 engine, in a hybrid powertrain, putting out a combined 949 horsepower. So why is there a LaFerrari with a V6 running around a test track in Italy?
One of the funny things about an office is that since everyone dresses mostly the same, you look for any avenue with which to assert your individuality. Festive ties and coffee mugs with your alma mater or favorite sports team only go so far. If you’re a car guy that means you should take that motivational poster off the wall (you know the one– with the bald eagle that says “PERSERVERANCE”) and replace it with one of these epic car cutaways of famous racing vehicles.
Ever heard of the term “paradigm shift?” It refers to a fundamental change in thinking about a particular subject. Such an event occurred in 1970 at the Turin Motor show, when Stratos unveiled their concept car known simply as the “Zero.”
If you know anything about German tuning house DMC, you know that they are the masters of insane aftermarket jobs; insane in a good way. They’ve handled the likes of the Lamborghini Aventador, the Ferrari 458 — the list goes on. But these eager beavers are ready to get their hands on the painfully beautiful Ferrari LaFerrari.
On the eve of the Los Angeles International Auto Show, Jaguar introduced its stunning new achievement, the new F-Type Coupe. In a rare reversal of debut best practices, Jaguar launched the convertible first, and has now gotten around to taking the curtains off the coupe version. The results are quite pleasing on the eyes.
If you live in the area and you’ve never been to the Miami Auto Show (formerly the South Florida International Auto Show), we suggest you scooch on over. Unlike Detroit, or LA, or New York, Miami isn’t home to any huge new reveals, or fog-laced press conferences. It’s simple, it’s fun, and it’s relevant.
We were in attendance at this year’s event and there were definitely some sights to see. Here’s five of our favorite rides from this year’s outing:
If you ever need to take a note in stunning design, look no further than an Italian-born, high-performance sportscar. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani — just to name a few — all have some of the most radical, jaw-dropping features to grace our green Earth. It’s damn near close to automotive pornography.
Yesterday, we brought you five notable rides from the Dubai Motor Show. Some, like the Ferrari 458 Speciale, were unveiled elsewhere but were making their Middle East debut. Others were being unveiled to the world for the first time in Dubai. This auto show has been around since 1989, but only in the last several years have we seen its significance grow. This trend is not letting up.
Typically this time of year, we turn our attention to SEMA (which we will) in the search of amazing custom automobiles. But there is another auto show that is garnering some attention thanks to some ridiculous rides and an exotic setting. I’m talking, of course, about the Dubai International Motor Show.
The Dubai show is like your average American auto show, it has all the frills and thrills of any new reveals. Except there’s one big difference with Dubai — there are some insane new cars courtesy of a few home-grown new automakers. Lykan, Devel, even the Dubai police get in on all the fun.
Absence – as they say – makes the heart grow fonder, and that’s true of the cars we used to drive. When you look back to the glory years of automotive production, we had cool, interesting, unique products everywhere. Now we’re down to somewhere around 35 brands, most of which are owned by a handful of parent companies, which share parts and experience economies of scale, resulting in a sea of sameness. We’d like to have these 10 examples back, if you please:
