All 40 Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 hypercars have already been sold, but the car made its first U.S. appearance June 11th at Los Angeles’ the Petersen Auto Museum and to celebrate, some of the hottest supercars in the city showed up and took over the parking garage.
I went to Philadelphia on Saturday, and it was really hot. But, apparently, so were the cars.
Nestled deep in the heart of Miami’s gentrifying Wynwood Arts District, in between the impressive graffiti murals and the roving packs of homeless, sits an incredible enclave of automotive excellence.
I have a hard time caring about supercars unless they’re being used for super-hoonage, so YouTubers bragging about sweet new rides they’ll only use to hard park in Monaco have always rubbed me the wrong way. Fortunately, YouTube star PewDiePie’s new ride blows all of those basic supercar videos away.
Delightfully-named boutique Dutch automaker Donkervoort has released an “RS” version of the wacky carbon fiber rocket-phallus they call a car. Hustle up and order yours because they’ve already sold more than half of the production run!
While this isn’t the biggest surprise given Volvo’s gradual pull-out from racing, it still makes us sad. Volvo’s Polestar made it official today that they would not be renewing their contract with Australian Supercars once this season is over. The team, however, is looking to keep racing the Volvo without them.
Days ago, car-spotting YouTuber Gordon Cheng found himself in a Tokyo parking garage. It turned out to be a cave of wonders, full of the absolute most outrageously modified Lamborghinis I’ve ever seen.
When DUB describes Zevigg’s Huracán as “the first hand-painted Lamborghini” they mean spray-painted. And behold: the second-fastest way to destroy a quarter-million dollar supercar.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Quick: what’s the one thing that, to most people, defines a supercar? Power? Speed? Advanced engineering? Money? Wrong, wrong, wrong, and sort of right. But trumping all these criteria, to the average person, there’s but one real indicator of supercardom: weird doors.
By the time you’ve finished reading this sentence, a McLaren 675LT could have accelerated from a stop to almost 100 mph. That kind of performance doesn’t leave much room for pilot error, but don’t worry, the car’s got a comprehensive rescue kit if you shatter its carbon fiber body and get a boo-boo.
Tango the Frenchie kept watch over the McLaren 675LT we borrowed last week. He was drooling over it as much as we were. Then again, he drools on everything.
“Make no mistake, it’s much more than a minor tweak on the 650,” McLaren’s representative told me. As if it were possible for me to hear anything but war drums, mere seconds away from being handed the keys to $392,741 worth of misslecar.
We don’t do this very often. Opening up Our Modest Car Collection to yahoos off the street, even if they’ve put on a faded Banana Republic polo and clutching a cheap notebook in some pitiful mockery of journalism, is a blessedly rare occurrence. But today, you, my friend, you are in for a treat! Because behind these…
Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between someone with big balls and someone with a small brain. Watching a Ferrari F12 bust a wheel fording a stream in the Himalayas is one such moment.
The joy of the internet is that something can be right, and something can be wrong, but both are given equal footing. I stand (or rather sit, let’s be honest) to proclaim one Justin Westbrook WRONG. Because taking your super cars across the Himalayas is fucking beautiful. The guys who ruined those cars aren’t…
You can now buy a McLaren 12C for what you might spend on a desirable Porsche. Matt Farah over at The Smoking Tire tested a high-mileage example of the company’s late, great mid-engine sports car to see if, well, you should.
Something about getting a brand new toy; the smell, the fresh plastics, it’s like an orgasm of materialism and frankly it’s irresistible. Especially when the toy is a McLaren 675LT. You can almost smell the anticipation in those factory-sealed seats.
To help promote the upcoming World Drone Prix in Dubai next week, the organizers enlisted the help of the local police, who have a McLaren 650s in their garage, to go head-to-head against a high-speed racing drone. It doesn’t matter who won the race, though, because the Tron-like footage is just wonderful.
