New Electric Jaguar E-Type Zero

The Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero is no longer a Concept, and there’s now a page to register your interest in the E-Type Zero on Jaguar’s website. There’s no official word on the Jaguar E-Type Zero price, but after speaking to representative’s at the unveiling of the concept last year we were told at the time the car costs around £300,000. The final E-Type Zero price may not be quite that steep, but we fully expect the car to carry a lofty price tag once its announced closer to its expected 2020 release date. The E-Type Zero shares the same body and style as the iconic car from the 1960s and 70s, but peek inside the cabin and you’ll notice a few 21st century additions.

Private Residence with a Full-Size Pagani Zonda R as a Room Divider

Contractors Finish My Condo, partnered with Artefacto Home Staging, to install a $1.5 million black Pagani Zonda R in an oceanfront condo in Miami, Florida, as requested by their client, Argentine race car driver Pablo Pérez Companc. Used as both art and function, the Pagani Zonda R is the eye-catching centerpiece of the private residence, and serves as a partition between the living room and master suite. The team worked alongside Pagani to create a custom aluminum and carbon fiber stand, creating the illusion that the vehicle is floating. With just 15 models manufactured each year, the rare car is one of the few privately-owned Zonda’s in the world. The 800-pound vehicle was hoisted into the building by crane. And here could be any of the most expensive cars of the world

BMW X7 iPerformance is Expected in 2018

BMW has unveiled its design for a six-seater SUV, as part of an expanded range of cars that promise customers a more luxurious experience. First unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the BMW Concept X7 iPerformance is conceived as a hybrid vehicle, combining an electric-powered engine with a twin-power turbo petrol engine. Inside, the car’s six seats are arranged in three rows to create plenty of room for passengers, while a digital interface enables a variety of personalised services. BMW sees this vehicle as a game changer, combining the luxury features offered by other brands with the distinct identity of a BMW. The Concept X7 iPerformance offers a look ahead to the production X7, set to launch in 2018. The concept car’s other features include a large glass roof that offers panoramic views of the sky, 23-inch light-alloy wheels, olive-bronze leather seats and 12.3-inch control screens. Although it wears iPerformance badging, BMW hasn’t released any details about the plug-in hybrid powertrain expected to drive the production X7. Price for 2018 BMW X7 is unknown but experts think it’ll be one of the most expensive cars in BMW series.

Stunning Verde Bronte Lamborghini Centenario

Set to be on display at the grand opening of Lamborghini’s new Hong Kong showroom, this stunning Verde Bronte Lamborghini Centenario benefits from a stunning matte green exterior, with contrasting gold carbon fiber finishes, inside and out – on the roof, engine bonnet, side mirrors, rear wing, the lower bodywork, and even on the bespoke set of wheels. The interior of this particularly interesting Lamborghini boasts Alcantara matching a Nero Ade black interior. The latter also shows off a contrasting bright green lining and the aforementioned carbon fiber package complemented by golden lines. It’s all green and it’s all mean, and the naturally-aspirated V12 engine capable of developing 759 hp and 690 Nm of torque will add to that statement. The Centenario will get from 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 23.5 seconds and keep going until achieving a top speed of over 350 km/h (217 mph). And this mindblowing car already has an owner! But some of the cars from our post Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World – 2017 are still available!

2017 Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta – Last Zonda Ever

Unveiled at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the ravishing Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta dropped some jaws left and right, and it is said to be the very last Zonda out there. Just three units of the HP Barchetta will be ever produced, making two wealthy millionaires very, very happy, and that’s because the third one will go straight to the private car collection of the company’s founder and CEO, Horacio Pagani. Inspired by other one-off Zonda 760 models, these supercars will benefit from a vented hood, redesigned taillights, and rear wheel covers. The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta also features a Cinque-style carbon roof scoop, a massive rear wing, and a new rear diffuser, blue and gold redesigned wheels, not to mention that classic-looking white interior. According to Pagani, this will surely be the last of the Zonda models.

$13M Rolls-Royce Sweptail – The Most Expensive Car Ever Build

Rolls-Royce unveiled a one-off custom build called the Sweptail. At a reported price of nearly $13 million, it is believed to be the most expensive new car ever commissioned. We’ve included this car into our list Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World. Rolls Royce Sweptail – a bespoke one-off coupe built for one of Rolls Royce’s “most valued customers.” “Sweptail is the automotive equivalent of haute couture,” Giles Taylor, the director of design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said in a statement. “It is a Rolls-Royce designed and hand-tailored to fit a specific customer.” According to Rolls, a customer approached the company in 2013 and asked it to build a one-of-a-kind motor car inspired by the luxury yachts of the 1920s and ’30s. The Sweptail’s signature feature is a single-piece glass roof that tapers into the car’s fastback rear end. It’s a design feature that dominates the car’s silhouette. The front grille of the unique motor car is also unique by itself and is the largest fitted to any modern-era Rolls Royce giving it a distinct look. It’s milled from a single piece of aluminum and hand-polished to give it a mirror shine. On the rear end is the “swept-tail” that gives the car its name. The coup de gras of the rear is the ultimate homage to the world of racing yachts that inspired the client, with its raked stern. The back seat is replaced with a wood mid-shelf that features an illuminated glass lip. Further back is the wood hat shelf, polished and inset with luggage rails and surrounded by a large teardrop-shaped glass roof that contributes to a very bright, airy cockpit. On the inside, the cabin is predictably wrapped in opulence. Rolls claims the car’s dash is the cleanest to date, with a clock made from the thinnest Macassar veneer and machined titanium hands. The center console also houses a mechanism that serves up a bottle of champagne and two crystal champagnes flutes. The Sweptail comes with its own set of luggage. Rolls-Royce has not released technical specs of the car, but it’s believed to be based on the current-generation Phantom platform, which means some version of the company’s 6.75-liter V-12 is most likely lurking under its long bonnet. Owner of such expensive car also must own the world’s most expensive yacht for sure!

Luxury And Extraordinary Bugatti Atlantic

Bugatti has always been a name synonymous with speed, luxury, exclusivity, an extraordinary design and a great passion for automobiles. Palestinian designer Arthur B. Nustas is proposing a different take on one of Bugatti’s most legendary designs, the Type 57 Atlantic, an iconic car that was produced in just four units, and only three of them have survived to this day. Nustas’ modern take on the Bugatti Atlantic seems to be a marvelous blend between the stylish lines and design cues of the Atlantic and modern elements from the new Chiron. This is merely a design study, although a very beautiful one. The very long hood reminds us of the 1930’s fast boasts and makes us think about the massive power plant that could possibly fit beneath. This might prove to be an awesome evolution of the Chiron in the years to come, if it’s ever considered. So, if you like luxury cars then you should definitely check our list of top 10 most expensive cars.

Stunning Black Mercedes-AMG GT C Coupe ‘Edition 50’

After retouching the Mercedes-AMG GT family and introducing the all-new GT C Coupe, there’s a new beast in town – called ‘Edition 50’. Revealed at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Motor City, this special supercar will launch later this year, as part of a very special celebration: 50 years of Mercedes-AMG madness. Powered by the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, developing 550 hp and 681 Nm of torque, this beautiful thing will do 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and max out at 197 mph (317 km/h). The Edition 50 will show off various bespoke features, such as a special paint finish called Graphite Grey Magno, black chrome exterior highlights, trim strips in the grille’s air inlets, as well as cross-spoke AMG forged rims. There’s also an ‘Edition 50’ badge at the rear, marking this very special Mercedes-AMG. On the inside, black and silver elements work alongside Nappa leather and a gray diamond-patterned contrast stitching to overwhelm the driver. And please note the black AMG Performance steering wheel, featuring Dinamica microfiber with gray stitching and ‘Edition’ lettering, that’s surely going to be a treat as well. Furthermore, Mercedes-AMG will also offer the AMG Interior Night package as standard, which means black-finished door sill panels, paddle shifters, and the Exclusive Carbon Fiber Matte interior trim. Let’s not forget about the ‘GT Edition 50’ logo embossed in the headrests. Also don’t forget our newest post – Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World.

Rolls-Royce Concept of Futuristic Driverless Luxury Vehicle

Car brand Rolls-Royce has designed its first ever concept car, billed as a vision for a future of driverless luxury vehicles with a built-in “red carpet” and lighting system that announces its arrival to bystanders. Called the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100, the design aims to “anticipate the mobility demands of the luxury customer of the future”. Unveiled at London’s Roundhouse venue, the concept car includes a roof that glides open with a hinged design based on a clamshell. This would allow riders to step into the interior without having to bend over. The roof and door would then close automatically. Many of the signature forms of a Rolls-Royce have been updated in the design for the body of the car. The brand’s classic Pantheon grille has been kept and reimagined as a smaller but more prominent frontage for the vehicle. The designers imagined a Rolls-Royce that could be designed around less mechanical hardware, replacing the majority of the engine space with a luggage compartment. This also allowed them to make the car narrower, and create a sport-style rear and curved cabin roof, made from black glass. The wheels are housed in individual cases, with exposed arms and struts that connect to the chassis and also support the hull-shaped body at the front. “The 28-inch tall but narrow wheels upon which the car glides are each hand-built from 65 individual pieces of aluminium, and enclosed to deliver the impression of a futuristic catamaran,” said Rolls-Royce. “From whatever angle the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 is viewed, it seems to float, whether at rest or in motion. This lightness is achieved through the paring back of this vehicle to the essence of a Rolls-Royce by the design team, who were freed from their current constraints by the new propulsion and coach-build technologies now available to them.” The brand’s signature radiator mascot – a figure of a woman leaning into the wind with fabric blowing around her – has been recreated in crystal and is illuminated from inside. This light spreads across the car as it arrives at its destination, and a step appears from the side of the car once the roof has opened. A red light is then projected to create a red-carpet style arrival. “The Grand Arrival gesture of the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 creates a stage for our important passengers as they arrive at their ultimate destination,” said Giles Taylor, director of design at Rolls-Royce. “It is an expression of our intrinsic understanding of the possibilities for a true luxury brand and the desires of its customers.” Rolls-Royce said it wanted to recreate the experience of grand horse-drawn carriages, with the coachman replaced by an artificial-intelligence system. The company has named this “virtual assistant” Eleanor, and said that it could offer owners advice on how to prepare for meetings and important events as well as driving the car. It could also help select movies and music for the car’s entertainment system. Inside, the car has no driving area. Instead, the interior resembles a lounge, with wooden panelling, a deep-pile carpet and a wool-and-silk-upholstered sofa facing a full-width OLED screen that functions as an entertainment and work station. All of the features could be customised for each owner, using interactive design tools that would allow them to give their input before the car is built. Rolls-Royce imagines the car would be powered by a zero-emission drivetrain and use “advanced suspension” to create the sensation of the car skimming the surface of the road like a “magic carpet”.

Donkervoort D8 GTO-RS

The legendary RS is back! The company says that it has put lots of work into the aerodynamics of the car to help it perform on the racetrack. Power comes from an Audi 2.5L R5 TFSI engine that was optimized with help from Bosch for more acceleration and power. Bosch also helped Donkervoort to integrate other performance enhancing features like launch control and a double-clutch function of the car. The car is made with a wider track to have better grip on the front axle and the brakes were redesigned compared to previous models. The interior of the car is made to order and the RS gets a carbon fiber tunnel section. The car is street legal and has the comfort that drivers want to drive it on the roads. The company says that this is the fastest and lightest GTO ever made. The D8 GTO-RS will launch in the summer of 2016 with only 40 units produced. The starting price will be €151,173 and so far, the company says it has sold 21 of the cars it will make.

Street Legal 2017 Aston Martin Vulcan

A British motorsports company by the name of RML has set out to free the Aston Martin Vulcan from the track. This $2 million dollar car is just about one of the most aggressive cars out there. Powered by a 7.0 liter V12 engine that produces around 800 horsepower through a 6-speed sequential transmission, it is an absolute monster of a car originally intended only to conquer the track. RML has stepped up to the challenge of unleashing the car from its confines by running simulated crash tests, adding on external components like lights, and tweaking the engine to meet emission regulations.

Race-Inspired Aston Martin Vantage GT8

All Aston Martin road cars posses some sporting DNA from their countless race wins in GT3 and GT4 categories, but the luxury brand’s “Vantage GT8” draws directly from that knowledge and passion to deliver something altogether more overt in looks and ability. Heavily influenced by the 2016 Aston Martin “V8 vantage GTE” race car, the latest model is the lightest and most powerful “V8 Vantage”, with a dramatically sculpted carbon fibre bodywork shaped by race-bred aerodynamics. Powered by a 4.7 litre V8 with a choice of either a six-speed manual or seven-speed “sportshift” paddle shift transmission, the car is tuned for track-focused agility. Wide-bodied, the “V8 Vantage GTE” features extensive use of carbon fiber with the front splitter, front and rear bumpers, fenders, side sills and rear diffuser all fashioned from the lightweight material. “Road cars are our business, but racing is the beating heart of Aston Martin,” explains CEO dr. Andy Palmer. “The Vantage GT8 expresses that combination perfectly: an authentic and unashamedly extreme road car that draws directly from our le mans racing programme to amplify the inherent dynamism that has long made the vantage such a fine sports car. Beautifully engineered and set-up to be equally at home on a fabulous road or a demanding race track, the vantage GT8 is a driver’s car in the truest sense of the word.’

15 Fastest Cars in the World – TOP List

The automotive industry has dished out some of the most prolific means of transportation in the 21 st century, with some cars offering spacious interiors, a status symbol, or just great value for money. However, true automobile enthusiasts will always have only one measure for excellence- speed! And with car companies still churning out vehicles that eat triple digit speeds for breakfast, here’s a look at the top 15 fastest cars in the world:

New 345hp Lotus Exige Sport 350

Lotus keeps rolling out Exige variants and there’s nothing bad about that. Their latest is this Sport 350, meaning to over-throne the Exige S. This new model is 51 kg lighter than its predecessor, thanks to a new louvered tailgate panel, a lighter battery, lightweight engine mounts, a new center console with the shift mechanism exposed, “optimized” sound insulation and even light pipework. Under the bonnet, a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine handles its business, developing 345 hp (350 PS – hence the name) and 295 lb ft of torque, thus enabling the Lotus Exige Sport 350 to reach 62 mph from standstill (0-100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h). Other changes worth mentioning include a revised manual gearbox – although a six-speed automatic, with paddles, is also available and a new louvered tailgate for improved engine cooling, The aero-kit includes a set of firmer dampers, as well as a revised geometry, enabling the Lotus Exige Sport 350 to benefit from improved aerodynamics. Lotus will also deliver this vehicle with new alloys, vented two-piece brake discs, black or yellow four-piston brake calipers, air-conditioning and a pretty impressive in-car entertainment system. No clue on pricing, but you should expect this ride to go on sale starting February 2016.

Zarooq Sand Racer

Zarooq Motors is a new car brand from the UAE (United Arab Emirates), they have presented the spectacular Zarooq Sand Racer, a racing car specifically designed for the desert, yet it is street legal. The beastly dune jumper is powered by an impressive Nissan 3.5-liter V6 engine with 309 HP and 371 Nm, and equipped with a sequential gearbox, heavy-duty suspension, and some seriously knobby tires. The high-performance buggy is handmade, with many bespoke options available in terms of performance, equipment or car body choice. Available in January 2016.

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider displays a design reminiscent of the marque’s 33 Stradale from the late 1960s – a V-8-powered car that could cover a kilometer faster than any other production car; not even the V-12-powered Lamborghini Miura or Ferrari Daytona could catch it. Like the 33 Stradale, the 4C Spider is quick and agile because its design is based on the principle that speed is a function of weight and engine power. It weighs less than 2,500 pounds thanks to a monocoque tub and body panels made of carbon fiber. And though the 4C Spider has about half the power of Alfa Romeo’s 8C Competizione, it is just as fast. In addition to its speed, the 33 Stradale was distinguished by its high price; it was the most expensive car on the market in its time. The 4C Spider, however, with a starting price of just under $64,000, costs far less than any other carbon-fiber-bodied sports car.

BMW Vision Future Luxury Concept Car

2014 Quant e-Sportlimousine

Making its official debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Quant e-Sportlimousine has now been officially approved by Tüv Süd in Munich for use on public roads. Built around a monocoque composed of carbon-fibre structures, the intelligent four seater electric sportscar boasts gull-wing doors and features an innovative drive-train concept with four electric motors (one per wheel). It draws power from nanoFLOWcell, an electrolyte flow cell power system that works on the principles of the redox flowcell, which was developed in 1976 for NASA and the American space program. Thanks to this technology, the vehicle delivers a driving range of up to 600 km, and is powered exclusively by salt water. Packed with a 912 horsepower engine, the EV hypercar also reaches blistering performance figures of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 380 km/h.
