Futuristic Audi PB18 E-Tron Concept Car

In a world where every new electric vehicle concept seems to be fitted with autonomous driving systems, Audi has done the automotive world a favour with its latest creation. Welcome to the Audi PB18 e-tron Concept. Introduced during Monterey Car Week in California, the PB18 e-tron Concept is an all-electric supercar that’s designed specifically for driving thrills. Consequently, there is no semi-autonomous driving technology. The car uses three electric motors. Up front, there’s a motor delivering 201 hp while two other motors power the rear wheels and output a further 604 hp. In typical driving, the combined power sits at 671 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque but if the driver is brave enough, peak power of 764 hp can be funneled to the ground in short bursts. All told, the concept hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in a touch over two seconds. Beyond all the impressive grunt the powertrain delivers, it has also been designed to be exceptionally efficient. With that in mind, the PB18 e-tron recovers a considerable amount of energy while it’s being driven as the electric motors are solely responsible for decelerating the vehicle in low-to-moderate braking scenarios.

2033 Cosmic Motors Galaxion Supercar Concept

There are concept cars, and then there are concept cars with technology that is firmly in the realm of science fiction — and designer Daniel Simon‘s Galaxion is definitely the later. The Galaxion is a grand tourer powered by no less than a miniature nuclear fusion reactor with a body made of bioengineered mussel shells, making it a high-science fiction concept. The design is intended for the aristocracy of a far-away planet and was included in Simon’s book Cosmic Motors, a collection of futuristic visions of the future of transportation. Also you might be iterested in the following concept cars: 2040 Manifesto Concept Car by ISD and Lamborghini Pura SuperVeloce Concept 2022.

New McLaren 600LT Continues the Longtail Tradition

McLaren has just revealed the most powerful model in its Sports Series to date – the 600LT. The incredibly sleek supercar, which is just the the fourth McLaren to feature the “Longtail” name in 20 years, pulls inspiration from the 675LT while upping the ante with a 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 592 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. It also makes use of the lightweight braking system from the McLaren 720s and the lightweight carbon fiber seats from the Senna, reducing the weight by a total of 96kg. No performance figures have been revealed yet, but you can expect it to be significantly quicker that the 570S’s 0-62mph time of 3.2 seconds. Production will begin this October in a very limited run, with prices starting at £185,500. And be sure to check 10 most expensive cars in the world and 10 fastest cars in the world.

Ultra-Exotic Roadster Zerouno Duerta by Italdesign

Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Italdesign’s Zerouno Duerta is an ultra-exotic roadster that took the world by storm with its aggressive lines and breathtaking performances. According to initial reports, this supercar was going to be produced in an extremely limited run, with prices starting at a cool €1.9 million, but at the moment they’re all already sold out. The open-top version of the Zerouno coupe is actually the second vehicle from Italdesign’s Automobili Speciali division, which has the clear purpose of building highly exclusive vehicles like this beauty. The eye catching carbon-fiber bodywork, an ultra light carbon and aluminum chassis and the 5.2-liter V10 we all know and love from the Audi R8 V10 Plus will make you realize why this supercar is super fast.

Racer Fourteen – Newest Supercar Concept by Ahmed Ghamloush

Today we want to show you a sleek Racer Fourteen by designer Ahmed Ghamloush. This stretched out supercar looks like the offspring of a Lotus 2 Eleven and a BAC Mono. Like the Lotus, it’s got a predominantly flat hood, full fender body coverings and exaggerated wheel arches. Like the Mono, however, it sports a central, open-air seat for one driver tucked neatly in front of a dramatic overhead scoop. Despite being a concept, its form is almost more believable than the previously mentioned supercars. According to the designer, its realism is a result of soft fluid-like surfacing interrupted only by scoops, antennas, and venting. In contrast with its bold curves and body shape, details like LED headlights/taillights and air intakes are minimalist touches that keep focus on the overall form. And if you were impressed by this concept car you should definitely check 2040 Manifesto and Ferrari Celeritas.

New Lotus 3-Eleven 430 Retro

Lotus has announced a new limited edition version of their 3-Eleven, the Lotus 3-Eleven 430 and there will be just 20 units of the car made. The Lotus 3-Eleven 430 is the most powerful to date, it comes with 430 horsepower and this give it a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of just 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 180 miles per hour. The new 3-Eleven 430 comes with a new lightweight fill carbon bodywork it weighs in at 920 kg and prices for the car will start at £102,000 in the UK. “With an increased performance envelope, the Lotus 3-Eleven 430 has also evolved its aero accordingly. Already noted for its high levels of downforce, the carefully optimized design integrates a higher mounted straight-cut rear wing (50 mm higher than previous model) with re-profiled end plates, a long front splitter and lip spoiler, and a flat floor with rear diffuser to increase downforce by 44 kg to 265 kg at maximum speed.” Also don’t forget to ceck our list of the fastest cars in the world.

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.

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.

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.

Impressive 2018 Rezvani Beast Alpha

Premiered at the LA Auto Show last year, the breathtaking Rezvani Beast Alpha was initially predicted to cost a cool $200,000, but apparently the basic version of this beauty will be way more affordable than expected. This unique sports car is set to cost you at least $95,000, which is definitely a lot more reasonable. Rumored to be powered by a Honda-sourced supercharged 2.4-liter engine, this sports car will now benefit from a Rezvani/Cosworth supercharged 2.5-liter unit, capable of developing 400 ponies. This means a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) time of just 3.5 seconds and one of the coolest cars around. Whether or not Rezvani has made any other changes to this beauty is unknown at this time. It still has ravishing SideWinder doors, aggressive exterior, and stylish cabin featuring black leather and Alcantara. And don’t forget to check what is the world’s most expensive car.

Stunning McLaren 570S Car Tuning by Prior-Design

The specialists from Prior-Design have just put together a full carbon aerodynamics kit for the McLaren 570S, including a custom H&R suspension system and a set of dual-spoke alloys, taking this supercar to the very next level. Simply called PD1, Prior Design’s upgrade program for the 570S adds a touch of magic to the car, which now looks way more aggressive than before, thanks to the side air intakes for the front bumper, side-blades, new side skirts, fender attachments, a new rear diffuser, a rear wing and last, but not least, a roof scoop. The supercar also benefits from an exclusive interior redesign, which can be customized according to your own taste and preferences. The German tuner is more than willing to go all out and provide you with the right colors and the most exquisite materials for your dream car, while the PD3CLForged custom wheels, designed in-house by Prior-Design, or the custom exhaust system, will take this 570S even closer to perfection. This McLaren brags about 570 PS and 600 Nm of torque, which enables it to do 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds and max out at 328 km/h (204 mph).

Techrules Ren Diesel-Electric Supercar

What better time of year for Chinese automotive R&D company Techrules to unveil their first production vehicle than at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. And what a show stopper this thing was. Dubbed “Ren,” it’s the world’s first electric production supercar that’s powered by a turbine range extender engine. Utilizing a combination of turbine tech, batteries, electric motors and a diesel engine to boot, Ren’s powertrain produces a combined 1,287 horsepower when all of the vehicle’s six engines are fully engaged. It’s enough juice to get the supercar from 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 198 mph. That’s some serious power for an electric car. Also, not only is it powered by jet tech, but the car’s design features a canopy that raises backward to allow entry into the three-person cockpit in a top-gun like manner. The interior also comes adorned in handsome Italian leather, boasts a sleek and futuristic aerodynamic body, a lightweight chassis built from carbon fiber and aluminum, and comes with exterior speakers and microphones to communicate with the outside world. No word on pricing just yet but production is slated to begin in 2018. And we do think that it has all chances to become one of the most expensive supecars in the world.

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.

The Benefits Of New Technologies – Electric Car That Will Replace A Cars Of Formula 1

Chinese electric car startup NextEV has launched a vehicle it claims is the fastest electric carin the world. The EP9 supercar was unveiled yesterday at a launch event in London and is the first model from NextEV’s new brand, Nio. Dubbed the world’s fastest electric car, it can go from zero to 200 kilometres per hour in 7.1 seconds, and has a top speed of 313 kilometres per hour. The electric vehicle can be fully charged in 45 minutes and has a range of 427 kilometres. It also features an interchangeable battery system, which allows drivers to swap out the empty cells in eight minutes. “The Nio EP9 was born to push limits and is the first stage of automotive production for Nio,” said NextEV founder William Li. “It is a statement of our vision and technical and manufacturing capabilities. It is a best-in-class product that showcases what is possible with electric vehicles. We believe that when the car ownership experience exceeds expectations, electric vehicles will become the natural choice for everyone, leading to a more sustainable tomorrow.” To showcase the car’s top speeds, the company raced an EP9 around the Nürburgring track in Germany – where it beat the existing electric vehicle lap record with its 7:05:12 time. The car’s high-speed capabilities have largely been achieved through innovative design and material choices. The cockpit and chassis is made from carbon to cut overall weight and aid aerodynamics, while its rear wing lifts to three positions to achieve twice the downforce of a regular Formula One car. To understand how fast is this car – you can compare it with the cars from our lists of fastest cars in the world and most expensive cars in the world.

305 bhp and weighs just 580kg – New Over Powerful Supercar From BAC

The LA auto show runs until 27 November at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, as the biggest automotive brands touch down in California to showcase their vehicles and technology. BAC has a successful client base in the US, where its single-seat ‘Mono’ supercar has earned plaudits and interest from all around the country. Situated between the west hall and south hall at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, the BAC display showcases the brand’s world-famous, road-legal, single-seater mono supercar in all its glory. Briggs automotive company will once again rub shoulders with the biggest manufacturers in the business and could well steal the limelight with its remarkable vehicle and the technology behind it. The 2017 model year ‘Mono’ features a naturally aspirated 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing that delivers 305 bhp and 308 nM of torque. And as the supercar weighs just 580 kg, it boasts a staggering power-to-weight ratio of 525 bhp per tonne. The updated model also features five-stage traction control; intelligent launch control; and switchable auto upshift, whereby the car surges up the ratios automatically – this can be turned off via the multifunction steering wheel. An illuminated switchgear now sits on the wheel itself, which has a faster-ratio rack and turns 1.7 times lock to lock. Plus an electronic parking brake has been added to reduce weight and, as with the new wider chassis – now standard – further enhances cockpit space. Bespoke supercar manufacturer BAC is based in Liverpool and was co-founded by brothers Ian and Neill Briggs. It produces the fast and highly acclaimed ‘Mono’ supercar, a single-seater formula-style car that provides a visceral and exhilarating driving experience. Since its launch in 2011 it has been going from strength to strength and is now sold in several markets around the world. It launched with great success and fanfare in Hong Kong at the end of 2015, with eight cars sold in a single night. So, it has a good chances to be a part of the top 10 most expensive cars.

Lamborghini Aventador 750-4 Superveloce J.S.1 Edition

This one-of-a-kind Lamborghini Aventador 750-4 Superveloce J.S.1 made for London based art dealer James Stunt is probably the closest thing to a Batmobile that anyone has ever made. MANSORY ended up decking the angular body of this car out in carbon-fiber, giving it a super aggressive look – but that isn’t all they did. The J.S.1 comes with several upgrades to the baseline Superveloce. The new and improved version pumps out 819 horsepower alongside 553 pound feet of torque, which helps the vehicle sprint to 62 mph in 2.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 220 mph. While these are some real steps forward on the already impressive Superveloce stats, the goal with this custom job wasn’t to shove more power into the vehicle but to refine the baseline stats through aerodynamic adjustments and fine tuning of the engine. When you’re looking for improvements on something like a Lamborghini, though, you know you’re stacked. Stunt already owns 20 MANSORY car remakes, ranging from bomb-proofed Bentley’s to souped-up Range Rovers.

Practical 570GT Supercar from McLaren

For the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren will showcase the largest selection of models to date with a full range of models, including the latest – the McLaren ‘570GT’. Intended for everyday uses, the two-seat, mid-engined sportscar focuses on usability and long distance comfort. The clean lines of the revised glass hive the ‘570GT’ a refined shape and mark out the second of three body styles which complete the ‘sport series.’ A standard fixed glass panoramic roof provides a bright, open cabin running through to the large rear glass hatch. Equipped with larger dihedral doors that open more upward, the cabin is paired with eight-way electrically adjustable sports seats upholstered in leather. The control interfaces are managed through the centrally-mounted touchscreen, while vehicle setup is configurable via the digital instrument cluster. The front luggage area remains unchanged from its other models, but McLaren have further added an extra 220 liters of space behind the sears on the leather-lined touring deck. The glass hatch is framed by carbon fibre to provide significant torsion rigidity and stiffness. The ‘570GT’ is fitted with the McLaren-developed 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine which debuted in the ‘570S’ coupé. The 562 bhp is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven speed transmission with adjustment through normal, sport and track presets. Weighing 1,350 kilograms the car can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and continue to a top speed of 328 km/h. The McLaren ‘570GT’ will hit the streets in late 2016.
