American-made 2019 Aria FXE Electric Hypercar

Unveiled just a few weeks ago at the LA Auto Show, the 2019 Aria FXE hypercar is an American-made beast that’s read to compete with any supercar out there. It’s going to be produced in two different configurations, the first one being called the FE, which uses a massive naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine to put a smile on your face. But the range-topping Aria FXE is even more incredible, pairing a 720 HP V8 engine with two axial-flux induction electric motors, that would take the power output to an astonishing 1,150 hp and 1,316 lb-ft of torque. According to Aria Group, the FXE will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.7 seconds and reach a 210 mph (338 km/h) top speed. Speaking of which, this hypercar was also built around a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and packs various carbon body panels and 3D-printed titanium components – it might not be as fast as the Vanda Dendrobium, but it’s equally stunning. Around 400 examples of the FE and FXE will be up for grabs, with deliveries set to begin sometime in 2019. We don’t have any official price tags yet, but you should be prepared to pay up at least $1 million if you want to park this beast in your driveway.

Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar

The Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing collaboration once affectionately referred to as AM RB 001 finally has a name and a few more details associated with it. The Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar has been described as everything from a street-legal F1 car to the “most ambitious supercar project since the McLaren F1” for good reason. It’s reportedly powered by a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that, when combined with its next level aerodynamics and lightweight construction, will develop 1,130 horsepower. The car isn’t done yet, but Aston Martin insists that there will be some version of it that will be street legal everywhere it’s sold. It’s pure lunacy on wheels that, unfortunately, most of us will never have the luxury of unleashing on the pavement, because of its rumored $2.5mil+ cost. And such a price makes it one of the most expensive cars in the world. Until they finish this rocket ship we’ll just have to ogle the F1-inspired interior and gorgeous lines while waiting for its inevitable appearance on The Grand Tour.

Vanda Dendrobium – 200mph All-Electric Hypercar Debuts in Geneva

The covers are off Singapore’s first hypercar, the “Dendrobium”, which has made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The two seater all-electric sports car concept from Vanda Electrics features a striking design and a target top speed in excess of 200 mph (322 km/h). Designed by Vanda’s in-house team, the “Dendrobium’s” form incorporates an automatic roof plus doors, which open in a synchronized manner resembling an open dendrobium flower, a type of orchid native to Singapore. Tthis unique feature also improves access to the cockpit. The tear drop shape that forms around the cockpit and ends in the tail is an element that has remained a key part of the hypercar from the initial sketches. Just behind a panel above the charging light, which shows the status of the car’s battery, is the vehicle’s plug-in port. Other highlights of the electric hypercar’s exterior are the aerodynamic floor, the rear double diffuser and front splitter. At the back, the rear light bar elegantly floats over the tail of the car. In order to meet its target weight of 1,750 kg, “Dendrobium” features a composite monocoque chassis, carbon-fiber body panels, carbon ceramic brake discs, and lightweight alloy calipers inside 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloy wheels, wrapped in michelin high-performance tyres. Carbon-fiber is used extensively in the interior, while the driver enjoys a bright red body-hugging sports seat – contrasting with the predominately dark interior. Both driver and passenger seats feature stitching and motifs inspired by the definition of muscle fibers. The interior of the “Dendrobium” concept is trimmed using leather from Scotland’s Bridge of Weir Leather Company. Sitting in the driver’s eye line is a digital dashboard with two rear-view displays, which take feeds from wing-mounted cameras. All of the dashboard buttons are hexagon-shaped: a recurring design theme throughout the project, replicated in the air vents, front grille and headlight bezels. Although strictly a concept vehicle at this stage, performance targets for the “Dendrobium” are a top speed in excess of 200 mph (322 km/h) and a 0 – 60 mph time of just 2.7 seconds. The project will feature a lithium-ion battery with electric powertrain technology calling on the expertise of Vanda Electrics’ technical partner, Williams Advanced Engineering. What do you think? Does it have any chances to become the most expensive car ever.

Electric Hypercar from Singapore With the 1500 Horsepower Under The Hood

Singapore’s first hypercar is in development by a new company called Vanda Electric. The “Dendrobium”, named after a Singaporean species of orchid, is an ambitious project that’s expected to produce 1500 horsepower, 4000 Nm of torque and a frightening 0-100 km/h time of 2.6 seconds. With the Williams Advanced Engineering team on board, you can catch first sight of the electric hypercar prototype at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show in March. The “Dendrobium” is designed to carry between 90 and 100 kWh of batteries, supplying a range of around 400 km / 249 m, which is the equivalent of crossing and returning Singapore eight times. It also shares these figures for speed performance, flat-out it can travel at a blistering 400 km/h / 249 mph. The hypercar accelerates from 0 – 100km/h in just 2.6 seconds. London-based design firm EPTA has formed the “Dendrobium’s” low-slung, eye catching, carbon/aluminium body, which features a formula one-inspired front grille, and an interesting rear section where the spoiler spans from the rear wheel arches, to the vehicles aerodynamic tail. With some major help from Williams Advanced Engineering, famous for its Formula One exploits, Vanda promises the hypercar will be built to perform just as well, if not better, than it appears. The Singapore manufacturer projects a limited production run of ten customer cars only, plus its unveiling in Switzerland. The ironic thing is that if this small team can pull it off, not only will it be a massive achievement, this is a company that has never even built a car before.

Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing Reveal AM-RB 001 Hypercar

This is not just another digital concept for an upcoming Gran Turismo game.

The Aston Martin AM-RB 001 has been billed as the world’s fastest road car with potentially F1-rivalling levels of performance. Its price has not been announced but it has all chances to become one of the most expensive cars. The car is styled by Aston Martin’s chief creative officer Marek Reichman. But having employed one of the most famous Formula One designers Aston Martin claims its car “boasts truly radical aerodynamics for unprecedented levels of downforce in a road-legal car”.
