When Croatian electric supercar startup Rimac presented its first prototype, it had eight employees. Today, Rimac is a team of 150, with clients like world-beating hypercar company Koenigsegg, and products like the Concept One, a 1,088 horsepower electric supercar retailing for $1 million. Yet their confidential…
The 261 mph Bugatti Chiron starts at $2.65 million before taxes, if you convert from Euros. It looks better than the Veyron, goes better than the Veyron and cares even less of what we think of it than the Veyron. VW went all in because more is what customers wanted, and the result is more of a cool car.
If those numbers aren’t making your internal horseshit alarms beep and wail like aroused banshees, it’s probably time to change the 9-volt in there. But that doesn’t mean there’s not something interesting here, so let’s take a quick look at what we know about the Techrules supercar.
The new Aston Martin DB11 made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this past week after plenty of early photo leaks, and its look has been the source of a bit of debate. Some of us like it, some of us hate it—even amongst the Jalopnik staff. To ease the tension, let’s enjoy an Aston most of us can agree on: the DBS.
The Geneva Motor Show came and went this week, and now we have all sorts of new supercar goodies to argue over for a few years. Here’s four quick dumb facts I’d like to share with you on some of our favorite new exotics from this year’s show.
The Lamborghini Centenario is great. For starters, it’s got a 770 horsepower naturally aspirated V12. It’s also telling us that the Aventador’s successor will have four-wheel steering, and while Ferruccio Lamborghini would never care for its design, it’s actually the perfect tribute to Stephan Winkelmann’s triumphant…
Wolfgang Duerheimer, head of Volkswagen’s Bugatti marque, admitted that he “can’t get the idea for a four-door limousine out of my head,” in an interview at the Geneva Motor Show. This is great news for all the billionaires out there looking into tow hitches and seating-trailers for their Chirons.
This six-speed manual was developed for the 2017 Porsche 911R, and will also be available as an option on the next GT3. Thank you, Porsche.
There’s a new Aston Martin DB! It goes to 11! Hilarious. We’re currently having an office debate over whether or not the new DB11 is pretty compared to the DB9, which is ridiculous because it is—just like the DB6 was still pretty when it followed the iconic DB5.
The 2017 Porsche 911 R is a retro-styled stripped-down rear-drive manual-shift orgasm-in-motion for hardcore automotive enthusiasts. So you might want to draw the shades before you watch this baby in action.
Italian design house and Coke machine ruiners Pininfarina want to make track day laps as guilt-free as a cookie made of air. The one-off Pininfarina H2 Speed concept uses hydrogen power to produce around 500 horsepower with zero emissions besides the environmentally friendly by-products of air and water.
Here’s an idea: let’s rip a 4.7-liter Maserati V8 out of a Maserati and stick it into a motorcycle. Wouldn’t that be excellent?
Rimac Automobili, an upstart Croatian supercar and battery engineering firm, just took the wraps off of two 1000-plus horsepower all-wheel drive electric vehicles. They’re absolutely gorgeous, and they each come with four motors and four gearboxes—one at each corner.
Morgan sold 1,600+ V-twin-powered 3 Wheelers so far, and from now on, you can also buy one with a full electric drivetrain and a range of 150 miles. But there’s much more to to the new car than that, including the steering wheel of a 1940s Ford pickup truck.
