McLaren 570S: The Newest And “Sportiest” Car From The Brits

mclaren-570s-3The new McLaren 570S is the least expensive model of the British supercar line, and now part of the new “Sports” line. The 570S produces 562 hp from a 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine, translating to 0-62 in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 204 mph.

A 7-speed SSG transmission, carbon ceramic brakes, forged alloy wheels, a carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis and aluminum body, new digital instrument cluster, a seven-inch touchscreen with integrated climate control, and optional Bowers & Wilkins audio system.

Pricing has yet to be announced, but the thoughts of auto journalists is that it will be McLaren’s least expensive car in production when it launches.

McLaren’s New 675LT Is One Pretty Road-Legal Racecar

mclaren-1Carbon fiber all-around to keep weight low,  the McLaren 675LT is a sportscar with track performance in mind, of course.

The Aston Martin Vulcan Is Cooler Than Any Other Aston

VuI_01-newsheroThe Aston Martin Vulcan, the company’s new car built specifically for the race track. Powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine block, producing over 800 horsepower. All that power is shifted with a mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox.

The body, which is undeniably insane, futuristic and speed-infused is a carbon fiber monocoque, and hopefully predicts the aesthetics of future production models. 24 Vulcans will be built worldwide with full FIA race safety requirements.

All that’s left now is another car fast enough (and a driver) to race it against.

The Ferrari 488 GTB Is An “Entry-Level” Supercar, Blows Minds

1-ferrari-anteriore-1280x0_2SCHR7Ah, yes. A new Ferrari, named the 488 GTB.

It’s environmentally more sound than its predecessor, the 458 Italia, with 260g/km CO2 emissions. It’s also faster, reaching 0-62mph in 3 seconds flat, and 124mph in just 8.3 seconds total. It’s insane, is the world you’re looking for. Engine-wise, this is possible via a 661bhp 3.9-liter V8 engine with 561lb ft of torque. Oh, and twin turbochargers, just for a “pinch” more of power.

It’s a beautiful sight, with styling from the “XX” division of Ferrari’s somehow-more-insanely-fast track division. More details on the 48 GTB will be released at the Geneva Motor Show, next month.

The New Acura NSX Supercar Must Live Up To (And Surpass) Its Name

new-acura-nsx--0012.0The Honda NSX was a hand-built, all aluminum masterpiece of a car that stayed in production for 15 years — the new Acura NSX has tons to uphold and live up to, then. While the exact engine specs are still being decided withheld, Acura/Honda is saying it will be a hybrid, using a twin-turbo V6 paired to a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission. A center-mounted dial will let the driver choose the driving modes and thus, engine power.

The first delivers will occur later this year, with customizations starting inthe summer; a price in the “mid-150,000 range” will be set on the Acura NSX.

Goodness: it’s beautiful. More shots after the break.

The New, 2016 Ford GT: A Crazy Carbon Fiber American Supercar

2016 Ford GTAn ultra high-performance vehicle, the 2015 Ford GT is a beautiful machine. Designed to compete in the upcoming 24 Hours of Le Mans, it’s also going to be a road-legal supercar. Its body makes use of lightweight composites and carbon fiber, with improved aerodynamics over the previous generation.

Oh, and its mid-engined, yet environmentally-firendly EcoBoost speed source is truly that of a supercar: a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, producing over 600 horsepower. The new Ford GT will go into production late next year for “select markets”, for undoubtedly, a high price.

Tesla Roadster 3.0 Upgrade: A Crazy 400 Miles On A Single Charge

tesla-roadster-3Teslas truly aren’t normal cars. In the Roadster’s case, this idea is supplemented by the Roadster 3.0 Upgrade. With the inclusion of new battery with 31% more energy than the original, better aerodynamics, and new tires with less resistance — the Roadster is suddenly back on top (and it hasn’t even been actively produced since 2012). The end result is 40-50% improvement with range, compared to the 250 miles of the previous model; the 3.0 upgraded cars will be able to roll at least 400 miles without needed a charge.

Now that’s cutting edge.
