Ferrari to Unveil High Performance 458 Scuderia Model?

458 Scuderia

Rumors are aflame that the Prancing Horse is poised to unveil yet another glorious supercar at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September. Will there be a Ferrari 458 Scuderia? The Scuderia badge has been left in the dust for the past 6 years–it was last used on the Ferrari F430.

Fun fact: The word Scuderia means “stable of horses”, which makes it quite fitting for the Prancing Horse brand. Pictured above is the F430 Scuderia.

What a Scuderia version of the Ferrari 458 means is that it will be a slightly more powerful version of its sibling, the standard 458 Italia. Lamborghini does the same with its “Superleggera” badge. Basically, special high-performance versions of a car entice the adrenaline junkies and are typically a success. read more

Koenigsegg One

More renderings and speculation has been trickling out regarding the Koenigsegg One, a potentially potent rival to the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The Swedish-made dream machine is drenched with carbon fiber and if you believe the rumors, packing some seriously amplified power beneath its shapely hood.

The Koenigsegg One could be unveiled as soon as November at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Show. If all 5 examples are not sold already, they certainly will be during the show.

Just five examples of the Koenigsegg One will be created, and they are likely all spoken for. They will only be available in China and will likely set their owners back a cool $2 million dollars. The special edition car is being developed in cooperation with FFF Automobile, China’s go-to luxury auto dealer. read more

Aston Martin CC100 Speedster

The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster concept is a racy tribute to the brand’s 100 years in the luxury auto industry. The CC100 is missing a few key comforts, including a roof and the lower portion of its doors. What it lacks in creature comforts, the concept makes up for with power and prowess.

The Aston Martin CC100 racer stirred up excitement recently at the Nürburgring racetrack. The sporty blue and yellow exterior is fitting of a track car and draw attention to the elongated body.

The CC100 Speedster boasts a blend of components borrowed from its predecessors. Under the prominent hood lurks a mean 6.0-liter V12 borrowed from the rest of the range. The transmission is a 6-speed semi-automatic with paddles positioned directly on the steering wheel. It has the aluminum architecture of the road going cars, but is built strictly for the track. read more
