What happens when you combine the soul of an Italian super sports car and the functionality typical of an luxury SUV? You get the 2019 Lamborghini Urus. Unveiled in December 2017, this exclusive super sports utility vehicle out performs any other on the market. Though the Urus is a significant departure from the usual Lamborghini models (i.e. The Huracan, Aventador, and Gallardo), it is not the first ever SUV from the company. That would be the LM002 released in 1986. Its creation is meant to broaden the brand’s typical customer base attracting families, millennials and women as well as maintaining its loyal clientele.
Volkswagen Polo: not the first car that comes to mind when you think “supercar”. However, with a revenue of over €230 billion, VW has the means to compete with giants in the motorcar industry. In March 2018, the company revealed that they had a new car out, called the Polo R WRX. This car was designed to follow on from the Polo R WRC, which was retired in 2016. However, this latest version is supercharged and with more power than ever before. So what makes this car so great in the world of exotic and luxury vehicles?
What could be more fun than watching two of the worlds greatest supercars duke it out in a head to head all out race? The only thing that I can think of would be if the win was major upset. Last week we pitted the Lamborghini Huracan spyder against the BMW i8 hybrid in a drag race, and the photo finish showed a shocking result.
It is fun to see photos of hyperbeasts like the Bugatti Veyron and perhaps even the occasional video clip of them tooling about their various habitats—it is quite another to see them parade out slowly and then get clocked reaching max speeds on public roadways! Check out the 3 minute clip below showing 3 Bugatti Veyrons doing what they were intended to do: Show off!
The clip shows 3 Bugatti Veyrons, including the masterpiece Vitesse L’Or Rouge revving around and then hitting speeds of 230+ miles per hour as someone clocks them from the side.
The track-only Aston Martin Vulcan has been busy proving its beast mode at events all over the world. The racer climbed the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex and took on 2 flying laps at the 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium to help revv up the crowd prior to the start of the endurance race.
The clip above shows more of the Vulcan in action.
The Aston Martin Vulcan is a 7.0-liter 800 horsepower weapon. Just 24 units of the Vulcan are planned for production, and buyers will have to separate from around $2.3 million USD in order to own one of them. Some of the Aston Martin Vulcan’s siblings competed in the race, making it a fitting introduction indeed. Will the Vulcan participate in an endurance race soon? That remains to be seen. In the meantime, the mad machine is making her publicity rounds and showing off all of her beauty and brawn.
The Prancing Horse made it nearly impossible to become a proud parent of the fierce LaFerrari hybrid when it was born. Now it seems that at least one of the owners has a short attention span and is already willing to part with their LaFerrari. There have been others in the chosen 499, but this one stands out in the crowd based on asking price alone.
The Laferrari has proven that she looks good in any color–though the one for sale in this instance is black. Shown above in signature Ferrari red.
The Rezvani Beast greets you with an aggressive stare when you enter its domain. And by domain I mean website, where it is perched on display to tantalize viewers with all of the pertinent information about how it was created and what it is capable of achieving. The site claims she is the ‘Supercar reinvented’ and according to the specifications and brilliant photos, most would have to agree.
The Rezvani Beast is out to challenge the notion of what a supercar should look and feel like. Is she doing a good job so far? (All photos ©Rezvani motors).
The Rezvani Beast at a glance:
The Bloodhound SSC Project is all about blood curdling speed. The Bloodhound SSC is a land speed vehicle designed by scientists and engineers and funded by donations and fans. She is geared up to set a new World Land Speed Record of 1000+ miles per hour…take that, Fastest Production Car!
The Bloodhound SSC is offering fans a chance to place their name on the fin of the vehicle. It is a social media sensation with many taking advantage of the unique opportunity to make their mark on it while helping the cause.
The Koenigsegg Regera is but another example of those crazy Swedes and their ability to craft some of the worlds most blisteringly fast and breathtaking machines. Koenigsegg has been building speed demons for just 20 years, yet is always among the first brands uttered when the top fastest cars come up in conversation.
The Koenigsegg Regera is a potent little number pushing forth 1,500 horsepower from her shapely frame. That is roughly 300 more than the Bugatti Veyron, which held the title of ‘Fastest Production Car’ for a few years. The Regera was officially introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show as a means for the young-ish company to continue pushing the envelope and to perhaps flex a bit of muscle at the Hennessey Venom GT, which now holds the fastest production car record.
Following the lengthy farewell ceremonies for the Bugatti Veyron, attention has turned to the successor. Word is circulating that the new champion could destroy the 0-60 mile per hour sprint in less than 2 seconds. Will the Bugatti Veyron successor be faster than her siblings?
Bugatti had stated previously that the successor would not be a speed demon, nor a threat to the original. It seems that the company may have changed their tune, and no one is likely to be upset about that. Perhaps when Hennessey swooped in with their Venom to steal the fastest production car title, it left a bit of a dent in Bugatti’s ego. Whatever the reason, it would certainly be welcomed for the Veyron successor to provide some shock and awe.
