PostHeaderIcon Will Hyundai’s Upcoming Supercar Use DNA From the Kia Stinger?

Hyundai has confirmed plans to build its first-ever supercar. Now that we know what the Korean automaker is planning, the time for speculation begins. There are a lot of different directions we can go to, but we’re focusing on Hyundai’s sister company, Kia, and the latter’s own — and new — performance car: the Kia Stinger GT. Knowing what we know about the Stinger GT and Kia’s admission that the sports sedan is capable of so much more, is it possible that Hyundai could tap into the Stinger’s DNA as it develops its own supercar?


2018 Kia Stinger - image 700354
“Part of the endless string of narratives surrounding the Stinger GT was the possibility of a more potent version coming in the next few years.”

It’s been a year since the Kia Stinger GT first made our hearts flutter. The sleek and sexy 365-horsepower machine debuted at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, becoming one of the most talked-about cars of the past year. Part of the endless string of narratives surrounding the Stinger GT was the possibility of a more potent version coming in the next few years. Some have even christened it the Stinger “GT-R,” a reference to Nissan’s mighty Godzilla that resides just across the Korea Strait in Japan.

Albert Biermann, the head of Kia’s high-performance division, didn’t exactly shoot down those rumors, but he did say that we shouldn’t expect to see a hardcore Stinger GT anytime soon. “The [Stinger GT] has more potential no doubt, but at this point, there is no plan to do more,” Biermann told Motoring Australia last June.

Is it possible then that Hyundai steps into the picture, looks at the Stinger GT’s DNA, and borrows some of it for the development of its own supercar?

The thought is tantalizing, but I think it’s too much of a reach to expect something like that to happen. It’s hard for me to see a scenario wherein Hyundai doesn’t work on its first-ever supercar by itself. Sure, it could borrow bits and pieces from Kia’s own development, but “borrowing” specific elements from the Stinger GT and adopting it into its supercar development feels like a move to cut corners and costs.


2018 Kia Stinger - image 700361
“If Hyundai wants to make a big impression with its first supercar, it needs to be all-in on the development of the car”

If Hyundai wants to make a big impression with its first supercar, it needs to be all-in on the development of the car. No stones should be left unturned, and no cost should be deemed too expensive. A more realistic argument also can be made of the status of the Stinger GT and Hyundai’s planned supercar. Unless the latter has a different interpretation of “supercar,” we expect it to enter a higher segment than Kia’s prized sports sedan. There’s a reason why we got excited about the thought of seeing a two-seater hybrid supercar to come out of Hyundai. It’s never been done before, and the potential to excite is there.

Hyundai shouldn’t waste that potential by giving us elements we’ve already seen from Kia. Make it new and make it exciting!

PostHeaderIcon Wonders Will Never Cease – Hyundai is Seriously Working on a Supercar

Hyundai is preparing to enter the big leagues, and I’m not talking about baseball. The Korean automaker has made its plans known to develop a supercar. Yes, a supercar. This isn’t your dad’s Hyundai anymore. This is the new Hyundai that’s taking its shot at becoming an automaker that can compete with the likes of Porsche, Mercedes-AMG, BMW M, and dare I say, Ferrari and Lamborghini.


2018 Hyundai i30 N - image 723387
“Our first glimpse of what the N Division is capable of came with the launch of the i30 N”

It only took 10 days into 2018 for the auto industry’s first big bombshell to drop. The thought of Hyundai developing a supercar may come as a shock to some people, but the Korean automaker has come a long way from its past life as a purveyor of cheap and flavorless cars. Over the years, Hyundai has ventured into higher ground. It’s become a force in the crossover and SUV markets, and it’s slowly gotten a foothold in the luxury car segment. Most recently, the Korean automaker created the N Division, a performance-focused arm that it plans to grow into a certified alternative to Europe’s finest performance divisions.

Our first glimpse of what the N Division is capable of came with the launch of thei30 N, a hot hatchback that’s on its way to challenging the establishment in its segment. The new performance division is off to a good start, and according to Hyundai’s Vice President for Research and Development, Yang Woong Chul, the people who are part of the N division will be taking the lead in developing the proposed two-seater hybrid supercar.

“At the Consumer Electronics Show, Hyundai Chief Designer, Luc Donckerwolke, confirmed that Hyundai is working on a supercar.”

Details are still foggy on Hyundai’s specific plans, but in a conversation with Drive at the Consumer Electronics Show, chief designer, Luc Donckerwolke, confirmed that Hyundai’s working on a supercar. More importantly, the development has progressed to the point that Donckerwolke himself admitted that he’s “reviewing a project” next week after CES ends. For those who don’t know the man, Donckerwolke is the same man behind the designs of two of the most iconic Lamborghinis in history — the Gallardo and Murcielago. If he says he’s “reviewing a project,” it points to one thing: a supercar.

A slow build


” The idea of a Hyundai exotic has been thrown around in the past. The Hyundai PassoCorto concept is a good example of that. ”

Go back to some of Hyundai’s past concepts and you’ll notice that the idea of a Hyundai exotic has been thrown around in the past. The Hyundai PassoCorto concept is a good example of that. The two-seater sports car made its debut in 2014, and, for all intents and purposes, it looked like a proper exotic, albeit a smaller version that fell into the size category of the Alfa Romeo 4C. At that time, it became clear that Hyundai had the right design team that was capable of designing a high-end performance machine.

In 2015, Hyundai introduced a far more extreme example of what its design team was capable of when it unveiled the N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo. Sure, the car may have been created for the Gran Turismo video game franchise, but like the PassoCorto Concept, it planted some seeds in the industry on what the Korean automaker was capable of.

What can we expect?


Wonders Will Never Cease - Hyundai is Seriously Working on a Supercar - image 646045
“According to Hyundai's Vice President for Research and Development, Yang Woong Chul, the goal is to steer away from using big internal combustion engines and use electric motors as much as possible”

Sources with knowledge of Hyundai’s supercar plans have also told Drive that the automaker is well past the point of talking about the development of a supercar. Apparently, the company is already benchmarking a number of supercars at its development center in South Korea. Among the cars mentioned include a Porsche 911 Turbo and a Lamborghini Huracan, two performance machines that are considered legitimate supercars in the business.

As it is now, the proposed Hyundai supercar will likely use batteries and an electric motor to achieve a high-level of performance. According to Hyundai’s Vice President for Research and Development, Yang Woong Chul, the goal is to steer away from using big internal combustion engines and use, “as much as possible,” electric motors.

By the looks of it, Hyundai’s planned supercar will at least come in hybrid form. Speculation is expected to increase once we get more details about the exotic machine, but if anybody’s still doubting the Korean automaker’s ability to build one, take the word of the company execs who are already talking about it.

Or as Yang Woong Chul said, “It is pretty high performance. It is serious.”

PostHeaderIcon Would You Pay $365,000 For A 6.3-Liter V-12 Out Of A LaFerrari?

As we all know by now, the Ferrari LaFerrari is an incredible beast of a machine, capable of doling out illegal levels of speed in the blink of an eye thanks to its high-tech powertrain. Now, someone is selling the beating heart of a LaFerrari on eBay.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story


Would You Pay $365,000 For A 6.3-Liter V-12 Out Of A LaFerrari? - image 755861

Ditch that crummy old LS V-8, because we just found something way better. Say hello to a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter 12-cylinder from a LaFerrari, capable of propelling you all the way to nirvana on an Italian wave of howling fury. To sweeten the deal, it’s got just 20 miles on it, too. If you’re interested, the “Buy It Now” price is pegged at an eye-watering $385,000, so better go flip the couch cushions for a ’lil extra spare change.

Add gasoline, and this lump will spit out 789 horsepower at a head-spinning 9,000 rpm, as well as 520 pound-feet of torque at 6,750 rpm. Add in Ferrari’s Formula 1-derived KERS hybrid system, plus an electric motor, and output jumps to 949 horses and 664 pound-feet of torque, all of which helps the LaFerrari hit 60 mph in 2.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph.

“We're guessing that whoever is responsible for the auction will be found, sued, banned from ever purchasing any Ferrari product for the rest of time, and if possible, crushed to death under a mountain of Ferrari-branded teddy bears.”

Unfortunately, the above-featured auction looks as though it only includes the internal combustion bits and none of the hybrid components. What’s more, anyone looking to drop this thing under their hood is gonna need to know their way around a torch, as it’s most definitely not a plug-and-play kinda application – the transmission in particular is a big question mark when it comes to actually making the V-12 work in another car.

No word on where the engine came from, but odds are Ferrari is gonna be seriously pissed off once it finds out about this. Hell, if the brand won’t hesitate to whip out the lawyers over a customized urn used to fulfill the wishes of a boy who died of cancer, we can only imagine Maranello’s backlash when they find an engine out of one of their beloved hypercars up for sale to the highest bidder. We’re guessing that whoever is responsible will be found, sued, banned from ever purchasing any Ferrari product for the rest of time, and if possible, crushed to death under a mountain of Ferrari-branded teddy bears.

PostHeaderIcon Video: Design Details of the Mercedes-AMG Project One

When you’re building a car as unique as the Mercedes-AMG Project One, it’s not enough for you to go through the usual design and engineering process behind building a traditional car. The hypercar is specialized in ways that go beyond the standards of typical auto engineering. It ventures into the territory of Formula One where every piece of the car is developed with the goal of enhancing its aerodynamics and performance capabilities. That’s the kind of work Mercedes-AMG put into developing the Project One. We see that on full display in this video presented by the automaker where some of the project’s most influential voices described the intricacies that went behind creating one of the most technologically advanced cars in the world today.


“The Mercedes-AMG Project One owes its roots to the German automaker’s desire to bring Formula One technology outside of the race track and into the streets”

The Mercedes-AMG Project One owes its roots to the German automaker’s desire to bring Formula One technology outside of the race track and into the streets. One look at the hypercar and you can tell that Mercedes-AMG took that goal seriously. Every little piece of it has ties to F1 tech, right down to how the panels were shaped to fully optimize its aerodynamic credentials.

Daimler Chief Design Director, Gorden Wagener, said as much in the video, explaining that the company’s goal was to make the most aerodynamic car in the world. As you can see, the lengths by which Mercedes-AMG went to achieving that goal was evident in how Formula One tech played a huge part in the development of the Project One. From the air ducts on the roof to the shark fins at the back, these components didn’t make it in the car by accident; they were added because of the aero enhancements they provide.

“All the materials in the interior of the Project One were sourced from the sport”

It’s the same story in the interior. Mercedes-AMG Interior Design Director, Hartmut Sinkwitz, admitted that all the materials in the interior of the Project One were sourced from the sport, be it the generous use of carbon fiber or the inclusion of microfibre fabrics.

The result is a car that speaks for itself. Say what you will about its design, but you can’t deny that the Project One is dripping in F1-derived technology, right down to the hybrid Formula 1-inspired powertrain that’s capable of producing 1,000 horsepower. That power figure helps the hypercar sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 217 mph.

PostHeaderIcon SSC Charges Back Into The Limelight With New Teaser For Tuatara Supercar

U.S.-based supercar producer SSC has been quiet for several years now, but just broke the silence with a new teaser image of its forthcoming model. Dubbed the Tuatara, the fresh offering looks to take on the best of the best for ultimate top speed production glory.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story


2014 SSC Tuatara - image 425571

SSC North America, previously known as Shelby SuperCars, Inc., is best known as the company that produced the SSC Ultimate Aero, a mid-engine two-door that snagged the record for fastest production car in the world back in 2007 by going an impressive 256.14 mph. SSC held that record for about three years, but was eventually dethroned by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in 2010.

As a follow-up to the Ultimate Aero, SSC introduced a new concept in 2011 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Dubbed the Tuatara, SSC said a production version was in the works, with plans to build it at a new facility in the company’s home state of Washington in 2013. However, delays put a damper on SSC’s momentum, and things have been quiet ever since.

Until today. Now, SSC has returned with a new teaser image to once again stoke the flames of enthusiasm. Unfortunately, the teaser doesn’t come with any new information, merely offering a single shadowy outline of the car and its headlights, as well as the tag line “The Evolution Is Coming.”


2014 SSC Tuatara - image 383487
“Last time we heard from SSC, the Tuatara came equipped with an aluminum turbocharged 6.9-liter V-8 making as much as 1,350 horsepower and 1,280 pound-feet of torque, with output rising to 1,700 horses with all the emissions stuff disconnected.”

In case you were wondering, the Tuatara name comes from a type of lizard native to New Zealand. Last time we heard from SSC, the Tuatara came equipped with an aluminum turbocharged 6.9-liter V-8 making as much as 1,350 horsepower and 1,280 pound-feet of torque, with output rising to 1,700 horses with all the emissions stuff disconnected. Power is routed exclusively to the rear axle by way of a seven-speed semi-automatic transmission. Dry weight is rated at 2,750 pounds thanks to a carbon fiber and aluminum body and frame, plus there’s carbon brakes and adjustable suspension to help it handle. Redline is set at 9,200 rpm, with the 0-to-60 mph sprint done in 2.3 seconds. Top speed was originally rated at 276 mph.

Outside, there’s wild, space-age looking styling, with the cab placed in the middle and ultra-sleek aerodynamics. The concept’s interior is also ludicrously high-tech-looking, although we doubt all those cues will make it into the production version.


2014 SSC Tuatara - image 383486
“There's been a lot of new entries since the Tuatara was first revealed in concept form back in 2011, with a bevy of impressive machines dropping cover just in the past year.”

The SSC Tuatara is expected to cost around $1.3 million a pop, with production limited to less than a few hundred units.

The real question is this – will this thing have what it takes to hang with the biggest and baddest in the modern supercar market? There’s been a lot of new entries since the Tuatara was first revealed in concept form back in 2011, with a bevy of impressive machines dropping cover just in the past year. For example, there’s top contenders like the Mercedes-AMG Project 1 and Hennessey Venom F5, not to mention our pick for Best Supercar of 2017, the Aston Martin Valkyrie. It’s also worth noting Koenigsegg just went 277.9 mph in a run on public roads in Nevada, beating SSC’s projected top speed.

All told, the Tuatara might have some catching up to do.

PostHeaderIcon Amazing Video – Crash Testing A Koenigsegg Regera

When it comes to the very tippity top of the supercar and hypercar pyramid, it’s easy to forget that, at the end of the day, these incredible machines are still cars. You know, like real physical objects that exist in the world, as opposed to, say, time machines or inter-dimensional spaceships or hopes and dreams. And, as actual physical objects, these cars sometimes run into things, and because they have ludicrously powerful engines, they sometimes run into things really friggin’ fast. The point, if you’ve stuck with me this far, dear reader, is that supercars and hypercars need to be crash tested, and as a result, we get awesome videos like this.

Watching a $2 million, carbon-fiber-everything bedroom poster get smashed and bashed in a battery of tests is entertaining, no doubt about it, with the poor coupe getting the raw end of the deal from just about every single angle. Hell, the testers even took a giant sledge hammer to it, swinging for the fences on the bumper and under carriage. They also slammed the scissor doors a few times and ran over a curb at speed.

All told, it looks like Mr. von Koenigsegg and crew did a fantastic job, as the Regera appeared to take it all in stride. As a reminder, the Regera comes equipped with rear-/mid-engine twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-8 pumped up by no less than three electric motors. Peak output is rated 1,797 horsepower and 1,475 pound-feet of torque, all of which is sent to the rear axle by way of a high-tech fixed-gear transmission. The sprint to 60 mph takes 2.7 seconds, with the top speed electronically limited at 255 mph.



THANK YOU FOR 1 MILLON FOLLOWERS! Thats SMASHING! 🔥

PostHeaderIcon Nio EP9

Founded in 2014 in Shanghai, China, Nio has quickly grown to become a major industry player, establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with in the world of electric vehicles and self-driving technology. Boasting over 2,000 employees spread out over 13 locations globally, Nio is known for creations like Eve, a forward-thinking autonomous concept, and the ES8, a seven-passenger high-performance all-electric SUV, as well as its involvement in the Formula E championship with powertrain support for the Nio 003 race car. However, the start-up is best known for this – the EP9, a high-performance all-electric speed machine aimed squarely at all things quick and internal combustion-propelled. Inspired by the FIA’s Le Mans Prototype regulations, the Nio EP9 is street legal, but has made a name for itself setting some very impressive records on the track, including a sprint around the Nurburgring’s north loop in just 6 minutes, 45 seconds, a run around the Circuit Paul Ricard in 1 minute 52.78 seconds, and a lap of the Circuit of the Americas in 2 minutes 1.11 seconds. Granted, these records were done on track-only slick tires, but it’s impressive stuff all the same.

So then – what makes this thing tick? Is it just an overblown blender, or is there more to it? Read on for the details.

Continue reading to learn more about the NextEV Nio EP9.

Exterior

  • Looks like a sci-fi blockbuster
  • Honed over the course of 170 CFD simulations
  • Active aerodynamic elements
  • Generates double the amount of downforce as an F1 car
  • Carbon fiber exterior panels
  • 19-inch and 21-inch wheels

2019 Nio EP9 - image 736474
“Aesthetically speaking, the Nio EP9 is a futuristic, streamlined speed wedge, with a look that screams modern hypercar”

Aesthetically speaking, the Nio EP9 is a futuristic, streamlined speed wedge, with a look that screams modern hypercar with its ultra-low, ultra-wide stance, massively flared fenders, and centrally placed cabin. The word “aggressive” would certainly be appropriate here. The EP9 looks like it was plucked from the screen of some sci-fi blockbuster, like it could outrun the baddies in the climax chase scene thanks its insane power and ability to drive upside down. Funny enough, these characteristics hit pretty close to home, as you’ll soon see.

While we think it looks pretty good, it also bears mentioning that the EP9’s exterior is quite functional as well. Nio refined the shape over the course of 170 rounds of computational fluid dynamics simulations, eking out every pound of downforce possible, while simultaneously cutting out every bit of aerodynamic drag.


2019 Nio EP9 - image 736485
“All told, the Nio EP9 makes a ridiculous amount of downforce. Hit all the right settings, then drive it at 149 mph, and this EV will make 5,395 pounds of downforce.”

As you might expect, carbon fiber is used for the exterior panels to keep the machine lightweight. There are also active aerodynamics elements to add extra stick at speed. The most prominent component to the aero is the rear wing, which can adjust into three separate positions for either more downforce or lower drag, as the situation may warrant. These positions are labeled as “Park,” “Low Drag,” and “High Downforce.” You can imagine what each looks like in terms of the rear wing’s position. The sizable rear flap comes complemented by a full-length floor diffuser, with a flat undertray and curved slats that extend from the nose to the tail. The large front splitter is adjustable as well.

All told, the Nio EP9 makes a ridiculous amount of downforce. Hit all the right settings, then drive it at 149 mph, and this EV will make double the amount of downforce as a Formula One race car, or 24,000 N (5,395 pounds). That’s like having a full-size adult rhinoceros sitting on the roof, pushing the tires down into the pavement. Go fast enough and you’ll be able to drive it upside down, given the right track, that is.

Sci-fi, indeed.

In the corners, customers are offered both 19-inch and 21-inch wheels, with the former mounting slick tires and the latter mounting street-legal water-channeling rubber.

Interior

  • Looks like a race car
  • Carbon fiber tub
  • Six-point harnesses and fixed-back seats
  • Same steering wheel as the Formula E car
  • Four digital screens total

2019 Nio EP9 - image 736476
“The seats are basically carved out the rear bulkhead, because at the end of the day, the EP9 is essentially a street-legal race car.”

Step into the cabin of the Nio EP9, and you’ll be met with a carbon-laden cockpit design that looks very much like what you get in a race car. Seating capacity is limited to two passengers max, and six-point harnesses keep you in place. The steering wheel is actually a simplified iteration of the NextEV’s Formula E racing wheel, and it’s even made by the same company that produces the competition unit. The shape is rather rectangular, with a flat top and a curved lower section, and there’s a trio of buttons to help adjust settings for the ABS, power output, and traction control.

The seats are form fitting, and don’t appear to offer much in terms of adjustability. They’re basically carved out the rear bulkhead, because at the end of the day, the EP9 is essentially a street-legal race car. There’s also contrast stitching added in turquoise, plus lots of black material everywhere else. Further bronzed metal surrounds are added to the center console switch dial and steering wheel center section.

For info purposes, the EP9 incorporates a variety of digital screens, including one in the steering wheel, one behind the steering wheel, one on the center console, and one in front of the passenger seat. These digital readouts relay a good deal of performance data on the fly, with stuff like top speed, lap time, available battery power, active aero settings, road speed, lateral g forces, and even the driver’s heat beat spread across the various screens. These are divided up such that the most important stuff is close at hand (for example, the center screen is used for lap times, a track map, and car’s current position).

Drivetrain

  • 1,341 horsepower (1 megawatt)
  • 1,092 pound-feet of torque
  • Four independent electric motors
  • Four separate gearboxes
  • 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds
  • Top speed is 195 mph
  • Can replace the battery pack in 8 minutes
  • Full charge in 45 minutes
  • 265 miles per charge

2019 Nio EP9 - image 754160
“Providing the juice is a 777-volt powertrain, with four inboard motor generating units, or MGUs, laying down the propulsion”

While the advanced aerodynamics and carbon tub interior are definitely impressive, it’s the EP9’s powertrain that truly makes it stand out. Providing the juice is a 777-volt powertrain, with four inboard motor generating units, or MGUs, laying down the propulsion. Peak output is rated at a head-spinning 1,341 horsepower, or 1 megawatt. That means that with one electric motor per wheel, each corner creates 335 and a quarter horsepower, or about the same output as a V-6 Camaro. Per corner.

While the power levels are nuts, the EP9’s torque is equally out of this world. Total twist comes to 1,480 Nm, or 1,092 pound-feet, at the motors, all of which arrives as soon as you put your foot down. The EP9 also includes four individual gearboxes with a 1:4.283 ratio, enabling a higher top speed alongside the traditional earth-shattering acceleration now considered commonplace amongst high-performance EVs.

“Peak output is rated at a head-spinning 1,341 horsepower, or 1 megawatt. That means that with one electric motor per wheel, each corner creates 335 and a quarter horsepower, or about the same output as a V-6 Camaro. Per corner.”

Properly motivated, the EP9 can hit 62 mph in just 2.7 seconds. The sprint to 124 mph takes 7.1 seconds, and the sprint to 186 mph takes 15.9 seconds. Top speed is rated at 195 mph (313 kph).

If you keep your foot off the throttle, you’ll be able to eke out roughly 265 miles per charge, with just 45 minutes required to bring the battery back up to full. Nio also says you can replace the battery pack in just 8 minutes, which is great if you plan on doing some hot lapping at a local track day. Finally, the EP9 is equipped with a complementary passive cooling system that helps keep the battery pack at the right temperature, thus ensuring peak performance no matter how hard you run it.

“The composite material helps to cut weight, weighing at just 165 kg (364 pounds), a figure Nio says is 70 percent lighter than a steel equivalent”

Under the skin, the Nio EP9 comes with a carbon fiber chassis. The composite material helps to cut weight, weighing at just 165 kg (364 pounds), a figure Nio says is 70 percent lighter than a steel equivalent. The fiber is also quite stiff, rated at 30,000 Nm/deg. Then there’s the battery pack, which weighs 635 kg (1,400 pounds), while the extraneous carbon fiber components contribute a further 364 kg (802 pounds). However, even with loads of carbon, the EP9’s quad electric motor and transmission set-up adds a good amount of heft, with the final product weighing in at 3,825 pounds. Not as heavy as you might expect, but not exactly Lotus territory, either.

Still, the EP9 has the right suspension components to at least manage the heft, with active pieces designed by Nio specifically for the EP9 application. There’s four-way adjustability for the dampers, as well as a hydraulic third actuator for a “consistent ride height,” even when cornering at tremendous speeds. The active suspension also works in concert with the active aero to synergize all the various handling tech on board.

“Put it into a bend, and Nio says the EP9 will hold the road with 2.53 g’s of lateral acceleration, and stop with 3.3 g’s of longitudinal force.”

Additionally, the four separate electric motors help the EP9 produce a ton of AWD grip, while also enabling advanced torque vectoring for sharper cornering. Put it into a bend, and Nio says the EP9 will hold the road with 2.53 g’s of lateral acceleration while traveling at 230 kph (143 mph). It’ll also stop on dime, exerting as much as 3.3 g’s of longitudinal force when applying the binders.

Speaking of which, the EP9’s brakes are totally bespoke for the application. The automaker partnered with noted brake specialist Alcon to create new Surface Transforms carbon ceramic brake discs. The end result is twice the brake torque capability of a modern GT3 race car, with the front rocking large 408 mm by 40 mm (16.1-inch by 1.6-inch) discs, while the rear gets 408mm by 36 mm (16.1-inch by 1.4-inch) discs. Calipers at both ends are 6-pot units. To keep the discs nice and chilly, there’s also carbon fiber air intakes that feed them with fresh atmosphere.

The Nio EP9 is offered with both 19-inch and 21-inch wheels. The wheels are 13 inches wide with the slick-shod 19-inch rollers, and 10.5-inches wide for the street-friendly 21-inchers. Both wheels get slick carbon fiber inlays. The tires are 295/35 for the street compound, and a behemoth 320/705 for the slicks. Both are bespoke compounds, which EP9 helped develop to meet the unique demands of this outrageous EV hypercar.

Prices


2019 Nio EP9 - image 736495

Pricing for the Nio EP9 is set at a hefty $1.2 million, with production limited to 16 units total. At least six of those units have already been sold to Nio investors, which means supplies are dwindling if you’re looking to get one in your garage.

Competition

Rimac Concept One


2017 Rimac Concept One - image 666768

In the world of top-dog performance EVs, the Nio EP9 really only has one peer – the Rimac Concept One. As the production iteration of the E-Runner Concept One that took the fight to internal combustion at the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, this Croation-built monster has the right stuff to challenge the Chinese competition. It’s a bit heavier, weighing in at 4,079 pounds, but the interior is nicer, with more high-end materials and less of the carbon bunker vibe seen in the EP9. Most importantly, the Rimac comes packing with 1,072 horses and 1,180 pound-feet of torque, good enough for a run to 62 mph in 2.6 seconds, 124 mph in 6.2 seconds, and 186 mph in 14.2 seconds. Top speed clocks in at an astonishing 221 mph.

Granted, this hybrid Stuttgart superstar doesn’t come with an all-electric powertrain, but its still got an EV mode and the performance chops to hang with the EP9, so we think it’s a good match all the same. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic is used for the monocoque, while the interior gets a lovely array of digital screens and soft touch materials. Providing the go is a 4.6-liter V-8 and a pair of electric motors, all of which combine to create 887 horsepower and 940 pounds-feet of torque. A run to 60 mph takes 2.8 seconds, 124 mph in 7.9 seconds, and 186 mph in 23 seconds, with top speed pegged at 211 mph. If you’re looking for even more of the go stuff, get yours with the lightweight Weissach package.

Conclusion


2019 Nio EP9 - image 736487

While many will bemoan the so-called “death” of internal combustion (a topic for another day, no doubt), machines like the Nio EP9 should at least provide a little bit of comfort. After all, this thing has the goods to keep up with the best of the best from the world of gasoline, with advanced aero, adaptive suspension, and loads of carbon. The powertrain and drivetrain are especially impressive, providing superlative power delivery with high-tech attitude.

We’re especially excited to see mega EVs like the Nio EP9 take on the old guard at major motorsport events like the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, or even just a regular old track day. These are the sorts of places where the transition to electric power will be most evident, put on display in dramatic fashion with tire smoke and crisp lap times, and with feature like 1 megawatt of power and an 8-minute battery swap time, the Nio EP9 should have what it needs to hang.

All told, it’s an exciting time to be into cars, that much is obvious.

  • Leave it
    • * Extremely expensive
    • * Low range per charge
    • * No internal combustion soundtrack
    • * Interior is a bit spartan

PostHeaderIcon McLaren F1 GTR Is More Than Just a Supercar, It’s Also a Christmas Tree Transporter

The McLaren F1 GTR is one of the most eye-catching supercars of all time. It’s a magnet for attention, and it’s capable of unfiltered viciousness on the race track. Apparently, it also makes for a handy car during the holiday season, as the owner of the UK’s most recognizable F1 GTR, Andy74b on Instagram, showed us in a recent video.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen a performance car double as a Christmas tree transport vehicle. We saw a Ferrari 458 and an Audi R8 do it last year. But a McLaren F1 GTR? That’s never going to happen, right? Guess again.

Personally, I don’t think it’s a good idea to use an F1 GTR for this purpose. But I don’t own one, so my opinion doesn’t matter. Andy74b on Instagram does own one, and we see it in all its glory in this video prepared by the man himself. He gets inside the car, drives to the tree farm, and buys one for his home. Since the F1 GTR lacks in enough space to fit a Christmas tree, Andy74b decides to simply strap it onto the roof of his F1 GTR, before going on his merry way.

It’s one thing to see a Ferrari 458 or an Audi R8 serve the role of a Christmas tree transport vehicle. That’s old news. Whats beyond comprehension is seeing someone use an eight-figure supercar for the same reason. Then again, such issues are problems for the affluent, something we can clearly see in this example. Here’s to hoping that the F1 GTR survived in bringing that Christmas to its destination.

PostHeaderIcon The Grand Tour Teases The “Fastest Car in the World” Ahead of Third Episode

We’re already two episodes in on the second season of The Grand Tour, and ahead of the third episode, Amazon is doing a bit of teasing on what we can expect on tonight’s show. The star of the trailer is easy to decipher. It’s the Bugatti Chiron, the car Jeremy Clarkson called “the fastest car in the world.”

“The Chiron is no slouch when it comes to speed, so it deserves the billing.”

While it is curious that Clarkson would refer to the Chiron as the “fastest car in the world” when we now know for a fact that the title belongs to the Koenigsegg Agera RS, I’m going to let it slide because I suspect that the segment was filmed before the Agera RS blasted its way into the record books with a 277.9 mph run last month.

Regardless, the Chiron is no slouch when it comes to speed, so it deserves the billing. Move beyond the introduction of Bugatti’s new hypercar, and we also see a bit of action in the trailer. James May doesn’t get some time with the Chiron, but he does look like he’s having fun with the Kia Stinger. Meanwhile, Richard Hammond appears to be sitting quite comfortably in a chair as he continues to recover from his Rimac Concept_One crash. Not much action for the Hamster in this episode.


The Grand Tour Teases The "Fastest Car in the World" Ahead of Third Episode - image 754096

We also get to see a bunch of skateboarders racing down a mountain road, presumably in the same segment as May and the Stinger GT. A bunch of other cars also make it to teaser crashing into garbage bins, and it looks like one of the celebrity guests in Celebrity Face-off is none other than Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville. It’s easy to identify him because Paddington the Bear’s riding shotgun during his lap around the Eboladrome. For those who don’t know, Bonneville also starred in the 2014 movie Paddington.

From the looks of it, the third episode is going to be a good one. Be sure to catch it when it drops on Amazon Prime Video tonight.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Delivers 70 Chirons This Year

2017 has been a landmark year for Bugatti. It started it off by launching the 1,500-horsepower Chiron at the Geneva Motor Show, ushering in a new era of hypercar awesomeness to the world. For the rest of the year, the French automaker focused on producing the hypercar with the goal of delivering the first batch of models before the year ended. It took some time, but Bugatti has finally achieved its goal for the year by delivering 70 Chirons to the waiting arms of their owners.


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 667473
“With 70 cars already delivered, Bugatti now has at least 230 orders to take care of.”

|align=center

With 70 cars already delivered, Bugatti now has at least 230 orders to take care of. That total is based on reports that the French automaker has over 300 orders of the hypercar on the docket. If it keeps up its current production pace, the company’s factory in Molsheim, France will have its lights on for the next four years.

The 300 confirmed orders for the Chiron also means that more than half of Bugatti’s planned volume for the hypercar is accounted for. The company plans to limit production to just 500 units, so a little mathematical exercise reveals that there are around 200 or so Chirons left that are still unaccounted for. At the pace it’s selling, it’s safe to say that the Chiron will sell out a lot faster than its predecessor, the Veyron. The latter had a 10-year life cycle and included a host of special edition models. It’s unclear if Bugatti has a similar strategy for the Chiron, but by the pace it’s been selling the car, it wouldn’t be surprising if we see fewer special edition Chirons compared to the Veyron.


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 730337
“North America comes in second with 26 percent while the Middle East isn’t far behind with 23 percent.”

Bugatti shouldn’t have any concerns selling the Chiron in all corners of the world. In fact, the automaker revealed that from the orders it has received so far, four of the world’s biggest automotive regions are present. Leading the way is Europe, which has accounted for 43 percent of all Chiron orders so far. North America comes in second with 26 percent while the Middle East isn’t far behind with 23 percent. The Asia-Pacific region accounts for the remaining eight percent.

PostHeaderIcon McLaren Finally Opens Dedicated Service Center for the F1 Supercar

When you have a car as important as the McLaren F1, the impetus is to do whatever it can to take care of it, even if it means shipping it to the UK for maintenance purposes. The distance and logistics of shipping the supercar are two of the biggest sources of headaches among F1 owners in the U.S. Fortunately, McLaren finally decided to open the country’s first ever dedicated service center for the almighty exotic. The center will be operated by McLaren Philadelphia but will function independently from the dealership’s main retail facility.

“The distance and logistics of shipping the supercar are two of the biggest sources of headaches among F1 owners in the U.S.”

This falls under the classic case of “late” being a much better option than “never.” For the longest time, McLaren F1 owners in the U.S. — there are reportedly 20 of them — have had to ship their supercars to the UK just so these cars could get maintenance work. Not only does it cost a lot of money to do that, but the risk of shipping these prized exotics is far too great for a lot of these owners. What happens when something goes wrong while the car is in transit? Worse, what happens if the car is stolen?

The opening of the first dedicated service center for the F1 in North America is a major boon for owners of the supercar in the U.S. Not only is it much closer than shipping the car to the UK, but it also makes it easier for these owners to keep tabs on the status of their cars. Should there be a need to go to the service center personally to check on the car, owners can do that much easier than hopping on a plane and crossing the Atlantic.


McLaren Finally Opens Dedicated Service Center for the F1 Supercar - image 753869
“The opening of the first dedicated service center for the F1 in North America is a major boon for owners of the supercar in the U.S.”

Even better, McLaren isn’t leaving any stones unturned in ensuring that the new service center is up to its standards. The place itself is created to replicate the services provided by MSO at its headquarters. It will also have staff and employees that have been trained and educated by MSO specialists, ensuring that their work is on part with the automaker’s expectations.

That kind of training is needed when the car in question requires a full suspension inspection with full “vehicle shakedown” on a closed test track, among other tests. Every second annual service also requires “a higher level of inspection,” including a brake service and flush, a more in-depth vehicle alignment, CV joint service, air-conditioning service, and a coolant service, among other items on the checklist.

This kind of attention-to-detail is what a car like the McLaren F1 deserves. Props to the British automaker for finally understanding the importance of having a dedicated service center for the supercar in the US. With only 106 examples built, close to 20 percent of all F1s in existence are reportedly located in the U.S.

PostHeaderIcon Saleen S7 Supercar Makes a Comeback with Le Mans Edition and 1,300 HP

After launching its first original design in more than a decade at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show,, Saleen Automotive revealed plans to revive the S7 supercar with a new special-edition model. Yes, the “new” S7 is actually the old car with the same design, but the Southern Californian tuning shop is spicing things up with a new, significantly more powerful engine. The S7 in question is called the Le Mans Edition and stands out, compared to its predecessor, thanks to a twin-turbo V-8 rated at more than 1,000 horsepower!


Saleen S7 Supercar Makes a Comeback with Le Mans Edition and 1,300 HP - image 753519
“Styling-wise, the S7 doesn't appear to have changed much outside the black center stripe and black detailing here and there”

Specifically, the familiar 7.0-liter V-8 that Saleen used on the original S7 in 2000 is no longer naturally aspirated but connected to a pair of large turbochargers. As a result, the supercar benefits from a whopping 1,300 horsepower, a huge increase from the old S7’s 550-horsepower rating. But I should mention that this isn’t the first twin-turbo S7. A similar model was produced between 2005 and 2009 with 750 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque.

All that oomph is routed to the rear wheels through a revised, longitudinal, six-speed synchromesh transmission and a limited-slip differential in the new model. There’s no performance data available yet, but it should be notably quicker than the previous S7 Twin Turbo, so expect a sub-three-second 0-to-60 mph sprint and a sub ten-second quarter-mile run. Top speed should be well in excess of 220 mph.


Saleen S7 Supercar Makes a Comeback with Le Mans Edition and 1,300 HP - image 753518
“Saleen said only seven units will be built, each priced at a cool $1 million”

Styling-wise, the S7 doesn’t appear to have changed much outside the black center stripe and black detailing here and there. Inside, the Le Mans Edition comes with an integrated roll cage, air conditioning, a rearview camera, central-mounted tachometer, power windows and locks, and a 240-mph speedometer. Saleen said only seven units will be built, each priced at a cool $1 million. Is Steven Saleen trying to raise more funds for the new S1 sportscar? Probably yes.

In case you’re wondering why this S7 is called the Le Mans Edition, it’s a tribute to the supercar’s racing career at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The vehicle made its debut in the GT class in 2001 and returned to the French track in 2002 and 2003. It was raced again in 2007 and 2008 and returned for the last time in 2010. However, the S7 wasn’t exactly successful. Its best results came in 2007 with Team Oreca, which finished 10th and 16th. The car crossed the line in 13th in 2010 and 18th in 2001, but other results are mostly made of Did Not Finish or Did Not Arrive classifications. Still, it’s quite the achievement for a supercar built by a small shop in California.

PostHeaderIcon Aria FXE

Seven-speed dual-clutch transmission

If you’ve never heard of ‘em, don’t feel bad. Aria is best known as the pen behind projects like the Tesla Model S Concept from 2009, the bespoke carbon fiber body panels that adorn the Singer 911s, and the Ford Shelby GR-1, as well as the SpaceX Dragon capsule and the Warthog from Halo 4. Just 100 employees make up the entire firm. Now, this small, yet talented group is offering up a glimpse at its very first production passenger car, and long story short, it’s a whopper. Recently unveiled at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, Aria calls it the FXE, as it’s an evolved iteration of the FE concept shown in LA last year. The FXE looks like a spaceship, and based on Aria’s claim regarding the onboard hybrid V-8 powertrain, it should go like one too. Taking inspiration from track cars, the FXE is made for the road and aims to topple the best of the best from Europe, including the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1.

Of course, that’s a rather tall order for any carmaker, let alone a tiny boutique design house looking to make their first production vehicle. So the question is this – can Aria pull it off?

Continue reading to learn more about the Aria FXE.

Exterior

  • Highly angular and aggressive
  • Two-tone color scheme
  • Cabin placed in the middle
  • Tons of wings, spoilers, and vents everywhere
  • 20-inch wheels in front, 21-inch in back
  • HRE center-locking rollers with carbon fiber flourish
  • Adaptive aerodynamic elements in the rear
  • Flat carbon fiber undertray

2018 Aria FXE - image 750172
“The Aria FXE certainly looks the part of a top-shelf hybrid performance machine”

From the off, the Aria FXE certainly looks the part of a top-shelf hybrid performance machine. The lines are crisp and pointed, with deep cuts and sharp angles that simply scream speed. While Aria declined to provide exact downforce and aero specs, the FXE appears as though it would get smashed into the pavement while traveling at high-velocity. There are wings and blades and spoilers galore, which make the car bristle from every angle you look at it.

Of course, such drama should be expected from a modern hypercar, especially the first production model from a well-established design house. All that aggression will help the FXE get noticed, so why not go full throttle right from the off?


2018 Aria FXE - image 750173
“Of course, such drama should be expected from a modern hypercar. All that aggression will help the FXE get noticed, so why not go full throttle right from the off?”

Up front, we find wide, narrow features that enhance the car’s natural girth. Connecting the relatively small headlight housings is a U-shaped section offsetting the white body panels with a matte-black finish, while the headlights themselves look as though they come equipped with LED lighting elements and daytime running lights. A large vent occupies the top section of the hood, while lower in the bumper, you’ll find large intake sections and a deep splitter element with a curvaceous slant to it, plus a pair of side winglets marked by the FXE logo in white.

Viewed in profile, the FXE places the greenhouse in the center of the vehicle, evening out the proportions into semi-equal parts, front to back. The overhangs are short, while the lower aero sections continue the look of the front splitter with angular dips and dives in a matte-black finish. Enormous side intakes dominate the rear quarter panels and fenders, while a smaller secondary intake was added to the roof. In the corners, you’ll find ornate forged center-lock wheels from HRE, rocking carbon fiber flow inserts for extra style points. The rollers are staggered in size, with 20 inches of diameter in front and 21 inches in the rear.

“In the corners, you’ll find ornate forged center-lock wheels from HRE, rocking carbon fiber flow inserts for extra style points.”

The rear end is a bit blockier in its appearance, with sizable vents placed under the taillights, in the lower bumper, and along the supporting beams in the roof. The diffuser back here is enormous, complimented by a sizable GT-style wing on the trunk lid that appears to have automatic adjustment capabilities. A flat carbon fiber undertray is found just inches from the pavement. Finally, the taillight’s shape is as slim as the headlights, and they get a contour that reminds me a bit of the rear end on the new Chevrolet Corvette.

Compared to the Ferrari LaFerrari, the Aria FXE is much shorter, a bit narrower, and a bit taller. The Aria’s wheelbase is also longer than the Ferrari Squared.

Length 4,470 mm (176 inches) 4,702 mm (185.1 inches)
Width 1,930 mm (76 inches) 1,992 mm (78.4 inches)
Height 1,139 mm (44.8 inches) 1,116 mm (43.9 inches)
Wheelbase 2,709 mm (106.7 inches) 2,650 mm (104.3 inches)

Interior

  • Two passengers max
  • Fixed-back seats look like they were carved out
  • Racing harnesses to keep you in place
  • Simplistic, clean dash design
  • Should offers tons of customizability
  • Pedals and steering wheel move back and forth for comfort
  • All-digital instrumentation

2018 Aria FXE - image 750171
“Both passengers will strap in with racing harnesses to keep from sliding around while exploring the FXE’s upper grip threshold. Customizability opportunities will be plentiful.”

While Aria wasn’t opening the doors on the FXE to give journalists a clear view of the cabin space, there are a few things we could glean after seeing it in LA. First off, it’ll only seat two passengers – just as a proper hypercar should. Both passengers will strap into fixed-back seats that appear as though they were carved out of the car’s rear bulkhead, and come complete with racing harnesses to keep you from sliding around while exploring the FXE’s upper grip threshold. A large center section divides the two seats, while a simplistic dash layout provides a space for controls. The gauge cluster spears to be totally digital, while the button layout is ultra-clean and simplistic. There’s also probably little to no storage space, which makes the FXE exactly the wrong pick for a month-long holiday. Unless, of course, you’re vacationing at a race track.

Aria says the seats will be specially molded to each individual customer, while the controls will be able to move forward and backward as needed to accommodate a variety of body types. We also expect a vast variety of additional customization options, given the inherently bespoke nature of the company, the relatively low production numbers, and most importantly, the price tag. Custom materials, custom colors, technology options, and similar stuff will pervade throughout, which, combined with the specially molded seats, should make the interior of each Aria FXE utterly unique.

Drivetrain

  • Hybrid AWD powertrain
  • Supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V-8 from Chevy
  • Seven-speed dual-clutch transmission
  • Two axial-flux induction electric motors in front
  • 10-kWh battery pack
  • 1,150 horsepower and 1,316 pound-feet of torque
  • 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds
  • Top speed is rated at 220 mph

“In the middle of the machine, there’s a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, the same GM-sourced LT4 V-8 used in the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. ‘Merica.”

Like the majority of top-shelf hypercars currently on the market, the Aria FXE makes use of hybridization to make all of its go. In front, you’ll find dual front axial-flux induction electric motors, which get juiced by a 10-kWh battery pack. Meanwhile, in the middle of the machine, there’s a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. This lump is based on the same GM-sourced LT4 V-8 used in the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and it does well to fit in with the whole all-American theme the FXE is shooting for. The V-8 mates with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to send power to the rear, while the electric motors motivate the front axle. And that means the FXE should offer copious AWD grip when you put its prodigious output to use.

Speaking of output, the V-8 and pair of electric motors combine to create a lot of it – upwards of 1,150 horsepower and 1,316 pound-feet of torque, to be exact. Properly applied by the driver, Aria says the FXE will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, while top speed is rated at 220 mph.

Those numbers are more or less in line with what we’d expect for the segment, although the 0-to-60 mph time is a few tenths short of what you get with the established benchmarks from Europe.

  • Wide Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires

2018 Aria FXE - image 750196
“The real question though is how the chassis and suspension set-up manage to apply the impressive power levels mentioned in the drivetrain section.”

Despite its large supercharged V-8 and complicated hybrid AWD system, the Aria FXE weighs in at just 3,450 pounds in terms of the curb weight. As you might imagine, this is made possible thanks to its carbon fiber monocoque chassis and carbon fiber body panels, all standard stuff for something looking to make waves in the hybrid hypercar segement.

Aria says it also used a good number of 3D-printed metal pieces here and there, although details are a bit scant as of this writing. Aluminum is sure to be one of the most important materials used, and we’d love it if the FXE threw in stuff like titanium and the like for the extra bling factor.

Making the traction is Pirelli’s P Zero Trofeo R tire compound, with the FXE coming equipped with a 265-section sizing in front and 325-section in the rear. With all four wheels driven, this much sticky tire should post some impressive grip numbers on the skidpad.

The real question though is how the chassis and suspension set-up manage to apply the impressive power levels mentioned in the drivetrain section. Given this is Aria’s first real venture into making a full-on production vehicle, refinement on the road and adjustability at the limits of grip could be an issue.

Prices


2018 Aria FXE - image 750177

Aria says it’s aiming to cap production at 400 units, which is actually rather high for a boutique hybrid hypercar like the FXE. For now, sales are slated to commence some time in 2019.

Pricing wasn’t made public, but rest assured every FXE will cost somewhere around $1 million. For that kind of money, each customer will get to customize theirs to suit there individual tastes, which means the final bottom line might vary greatly between each example.

If seven figures is too rich for your blood, there’s also a “base model” FE that’ll sell for $650,000. With the downgrade, you lose the hybrid system, but keep the blown 6.2-liter V-8 for power. That means less output, but something tells us it’ll still be mighty quick all the same.

The FXE will be built at Aria’s plant in Irvine, California.

Competition

McLaren P1


2014 McLaren P1 - image 525097

As the very shot fired in the battle for modern hybrid hypercar supremacy, you can bet your bottom dollar Aria has taken careful notes on the P1. Introduced in 2012 at the Paris Motor Show, the P1 floored the automotive world with its incredible specs, making upwards of 903 horsepower thank to a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 and electric motor combo. Applied to the rear axle, it’s enough to propel the P1 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, while reaching a top speed of 217 mph at the other end. Only 375 were built, each carrying a price tag in excess of a million dollars.

Ferrari LaFerrari


2014 Ferrari LaFerrari - image 496624

Not long after the release of the McLaren P1, Ferrari made its presence known in the segment with this – the hybrid LaFerrari. Mating a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-12 with a hybrid system inspired by KERS and Formula 1, the Ferrari Squared makes a combined 950 horsepower, all of which is directed to the rear axle thanks to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 0-to-60 mph benchmark is dispatched in 2.5 seconds, while top speed is pegged at 218 mph. Motorsport-inspired tech dominates throughout. Pricing is set at around $1.42 million – if Ferrari deems you worthy to buy one, that is.

Conclusion


2018 Aria FXE - image 750175
“Its obvious Aria spent a good amount of time making the FXE look the part of a world-beating hypercar. But here’s the real question – what’ll happen when the rubber really meets the road?”

While it’s still a few years out, the Aria FXE certainly appears to be on the right track, at least as far as appearances go. That said, in this segment, appearances count for a lot, and smartly, its obvious Aria spent a good amount of time making the FXE look the part of a world-beating hypercar.

But here’s the real question – what’ll happen when the rubber really meets the road? Will the FXE have what it takes to perform with track superstars like Ferrari and McLaren? Sure, the power numbers are impressive, and with its carbon fiber monocoque, enormous brakes, aggressive aero, and sticky Pirelli tires, it’s got all the right buzz words to make one think it’s in the same class as the P1 or LaFerrari.

So yeah, it’s got the right aesthetic to compete with Ferrari and McLaren, if you like the way it looks. But to us (and the majority of buyers as well), the way it goes is just as important, and we’re not convinced Aria has the right stuff to match the big makes in that regard. McLaren and Ferrari have an incredible resume to fall back on when it comes to actually making the numbers and words work as a complete package, so in that respect, Aria has some catching up to do.

But that said, we’ll reserve final judgment until this thing finally gets driven in anger. Until then, we’re happy to sit back and simply take in all those curves.

  • Leave it
    • * Aria’s first production model might need some ironing out
    • * Styling isn’t for everyone
    • * Not exactly the most forgiving segment to try your hand in

PostHeaderIcon Richard Hammond Kills the Lamborghini Aventador and Acura NSX with the Rimac One

The second season of The Grand Tour is now underway. If you didn’t get to watch the first episode, you missed one hell of a beatdown. Administering the walloping was none other than the Rimac Concept One. The recipients? The Lamborghini Aventador S and the Honda NSX. If you haven’t seen the video, here’s your chance to watch it and see just how inexplicably fast the Croation electric hypercar really is. But if you’re a fan of either the Aventador or the NSX, you might want to turn away now. It doesn’t end well for both supercars.

To be fair, this race wasn’t really much of a contest, to begin with. Even on paper, the Concept_One had all the important advantages. It has 1,224 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque at its disposal, allowing it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds before “settling” on a top speed of 220 mph. On the flip side, the Lamborghini Aventador S tops at just 730 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque. It’s nowhere near what the Concept_One is capable of, but it’s still quick enough to hit 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 217 mph. Then there’s the Honda NSX, which pumps out 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to cover 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds before peaking at a top speed of 190 mph.

In the context of the drag race, the important number to remember is the torque produced by these cars. Safe to say, it’s not even close. The Concept_One has double the amount of torque that the Aventador and NSX have. In fact, if you add the torque numbers of the two supercars, it still wouldn’t come close to approaching what the Concept_One’s four electric motors are capable of unleashing.

The result of the drag race speaks for itself. Richard Hammond was behind the wheel of the Concept_One (we know how that turned out), and he simply blew past Jeremy Clarkson in the Aventador S and James May in the NSX. The collective look on their faces is priceless too. Hammond was at a loss for words and Clarkson was his typical flustered self. Then again, the Rimac Concept_One has that effect on a lot of people, car show presenters included.

PostHeaderIcon McLaren F1 Ownership Doesn’t come Cheap: Video

In a video released by VineWiki Previous F1 owner, Bruce Weiner, goes into the detail of the maintenance costs associated with ownership. Now, naturally, you would have to expect that owning a supercar – especially one of the F1’s caliber at that time – would be costly, but we’re talking about the kind of money that fuels divorce, among other things. In the video, Weiner explains that something like replacing the fuel cell, which needs to be done every five years, will set you back roughly $100,000 – a price tag that doesn’t even include transport or specifics. The clutch? Well, that needs to be replaced every few years or at about 3,000 miles and even changing the tires will set you back $50,000. Of course, that money gets you all the bits and pieces that go along with tire changing on a race car – a day at the track, a driver, the mechanics on site, various insurances, and the necessary suspension tuning and balancing.

Now, whether or not it really is so expensive, really remains to be seen. Weiner paid out $1.2 million for his legendary beast. The owner before him had just paid about $300,000 to have it painted Volcano Orange (a nice choice if we do say so ourselves,) but what really raises the question is how well Mr. Weiner actually knew the car. After all, in the video, he says there were 63 road-going examples when there were really 64, and, in case you didn’t notice, that 6.1-liter V-12 built by BMW wasn’t an “off-the-shelf” engine. Sorry, Weiner, but that engine was built specifically for the F1 and wasn’t used in any other car.

With that in mind, even if it did cost that much to own, what can you expect. It was once the fastest car in the world, and its engine bay is lined in gold. This isn’t your wife’s Mercedes, and it’s not your every day BMW 6 Series. We’re talking about a race car built for the road. Nothing about it was going to be cheap. It’s too bad he let the cost of owning such a fine piece of automotive history ruin the fact that he was sitting on top of one of the greatest cars ever built. Check out the video for yourself below!

PostHeaderIcon Putting The McLaren Senna’s Power-To-Weight Ratio Into Perspective

While you certainly won’t find us complaining when automakers boast about crazy peak output figures and power-to-weight ratios, it’s always a good idea to put those numbers into perspective. Take the recently released McLaren Senna. Tagged with a name that pays respect to the legendary Brazilian racing driver Ayrton Senna, this machine is offered as the Woking company’s “most extreme” road car ever created. Not only does it have the most powerful engine to ever bless a street-legal McLaren, with 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque hitting the rear axle by way of a turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, but its also the lightest street-legal McLaren ever made, tipping the scales at a scant 2,641 pounds thanks to oodles of exotic materials and motorsports-inspired construction. That’s the dry weight, by the way, not the curb weight. The end result is 658 horsepower per metric ton, or 598 horsepower per U.S. ton.

Impressive stuff, no doubt about it. That power-to-weight ratio bests even the mighty P1, which lays down 903 hybridized horses to motivate 3,075 pounds of dry weight, which calculates to 587 horsepower per U.S. ton. The iconic McLaren F1 is also defeated, producing 627 horsepower and tipping the scales with 2,425 pounds of dry weight, calculating out to 517 horsepower per U.S. ton. Meanwhile, the daily-driver oriented McLaren 650S Spider is left in the spec sheet dust, producing 641 horsepower with a dry weight of 3,020 pounds, which calculates as just 425 horsepower per U.S. ton

Of course, there’s much more that goes into making speed than a stellar power-to-weight ratio. Just as important (if not more so) is how that power reaches the pavement. For example, it’s a rather straightforward process to make 1,000 horsepower from a tuned 2JZ-powered Toyota Supra, but if you’re running all-season tires, all you’ll make is smoke. Traction, torque curves, aerodynamics… all help translate that ratio into real-world velocity, the stuff that really matters.

With that in mind, read on for the power-to-weight ratios of a few more high-end performance machines.

2019 McLaren Senna

A successful race car builder from the 1960s to the 1980s, McLaren began making a name for itself as a road car manufacturer in the early 1990s with the F1. Launched with many benchmarks, including the first carbon-fiber construction, the F1 became one of the most iconic supercars ever made. It was so great that it took McLaren 15 years to gives us a predecessor, the P1, introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Four years have passed, and the McLaren Ultimate Series is entering a new era with a brand-new supercar. Codenamed the P15 and in the rumor mill for a couple of years now, the McLaren Senna was unveiled on December 9, 2017, as the company’s ultimate road-legal race car.

A unique design that brings together styling cues from the P1, 720S, and new aerodynamic features, the Senna bears the name of F1 driver Ayrton Senna, who drove McLaren Formula One cars for six years, from 1988 to 1993.

While the Senna’s aggressive design and aerodynamics aren’t surprising, the fact that it’s not a hybrid comes as a bit of shock. With its predecessor sporting an electric motor, the new Ultimate Series was expected to have a similar layout. The same goes for the interior, which has a standard left-hand-drive configuration, despite prototypes that have a mid-mounted driver’s seat, like the old F1. But this doesn’t make the Senna a less spectacular supercar. On the contrary!

about the McLaren Senna.

Official video

Exterior

  • Radical design
  • Extreme aerodynamics
  • 720S- and P1-inspired features
  • Carbon-fiber body panels
  • Two-piece diffuser
  • Huge rear wing

2019 McLaren Senna - image 752215
“The organic styling cues, the teardrop shape, and the massive rear wing put the Senna in a league of its own”

It’s basically impossible to describe a car like this with one work, but if I were forced to do it, I’d use “extreme.” Actually, make that “extreme!!!” Granted, the P1 and the 720S are also pretty extreme styling-wise, but the Senna just takes things to a new level. Its organic styling cues, the teardrop shape, and the massive rear wing put it in a league of its own.

The front fascia is a significant departure from previous McLaren designs, not so much in aesthetics as in aerodynamics. There are a few recognizable features, like the split hood from the P1 (but in a more aggressive form here) and the slim headlamps carved into the body. But everything else is new. The nose is more angular, and the intake underneath is bigger. The vents under each headlamp make it seem as if the nose simply floats above the splitter.


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752224
“It's pretty much an open wheeler design with full fenders and a closed cockpit”

Things become more extreme onto the sides. Whereas previous McLaren’s had a rather traditional design with the body becoming increasingly wider toward the rear, the Senna is narrowed between the front and rear fenders. The shape is somewhat similar to Formula One and IndyCar vehicles, with the wide side skirts acting like side pods. It’s pretty much an open wheeler design with full fenders and a closed cockpit. The design may seem radical, but it has nothing to do with styling. Everything was conceived in the wind tunnel. When seen from above, the Senna has a teardrop shape, and all the components seem clipped onto the cabin. The narrower center section also helps with cooling, having enabled McLaren to fit massive vents into the rear fenders and the side skirts.

Around back, the Senna has nothing in common with previous McLarens. While both the P1 and 720S have organic designs with lots of flowing lines, the Senna’s rear fascia is all about horizontal features. The deck is pretty flat too, as is the upper side of the diffuser, which sticks out a few good inches from the body. The rear fenders also have a unique design, raising above the decklid to create to create an aerodynamically optimized area. The fenders are backed by prominent gurney flaps that direct air away from the rear deck. The exhaust pipes are placed on the decklid too, facing upward, yet another unique design.


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752222
“The double-element carbon-fiber rear wing sits four feet from the road at its highest point”

Below, there are slim LED taillights almost hidden underneath the edge of the decklid. The simple design is also the result of intense aero testing, as they minimize interruption to airflow. The double diffuser is just as wide as the rear fascia and uses its unique design to create a low-pressure zone that sucks the car tighter to the ground. The visual drama is completed by the double-element carbon-fiber rear wing. Sitting four feet from the road at its highest point, the wing has almost vertical stanchions and massive side pods. The design is rather unusual for a road car, being closer to something you’d find on a full-fledged race car, but it proves that McLaren made no compromises on its way to finding the best aerodynamics.

Speaking of which, both the front and rear section feature active aerodynamics and McLaren claims they raise downforce and aero control to “an unprecedented level.” There aren’t any actual figures to back this claim, but it’s hard to argue given the extreme design. Oh, and did I mention that every panel is made from carbon-fiber?

All told, the McLaren Senna is dramatic to say the least and, while it’s not the prettiest car the British firm has built so far, its aerodynamics and functionality should be superior to the P1 and maybe even the track-only P1 GTR!

Interior

  • F1-inspired doors
  • Carbon-fiber everything
  • Clutter-free dashboard
  • Racing seats
  • Folding Drive Display
  • Storage for helmets and racing suits

2019 McLaren Senna - image 752210
“The carbon-fiber cockpit is inspired by the world of racing”

To get inside the cabin, you need to open the F1-inspired dihedral doors that hinge forward and upward, opening with a portion of the roof. This system provides an aperture of sufficient size for drivers and passengers to enter or exit the cockpit even when wearing a helmet and a race suit. It pretty obvious that while road legal, the Senna is aimed at customers who spend a lot of time at the track. The doors have two-piece glass windows for proper insulation, with a fixed top part and a smaller opening section below.

As you’d expect from a top-of-the-league McLaren, the Senna’s cockpit is inspired by the world of racing. Carbon-fiber was used extensively on the dashboard, center console, door panels, seats, and even the steering wheel. Unlike other modern supercars, the steering wheel is free of buttons and switches, while driver controls on the center console have been kept to a minimum. Most functions are operated through the vertical infotainment screen attached to the dashboard, which also includes buttons for the manual transmission setup and the ESC system. Further information is available on the Folding Driver Display, which we first saw in the McLaren 720S.


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752209
“The Folding Drive Display keeps the driver focused on the race track”

Designed to rotate around its horizontal axis, the Folding Drive Display provides a comprehensive range of information in its regular, upright position, and switches to Slim Display Model to show only essential data on a small strip, just line in a race car. The idea is to keep the driver focused on the important info while driving at the track, which makes a lot of sense in a car like the Senna.

The carbon-fiber seats have heavy bolstering. The can be had in either Alcantara or leather and have an “S” letter embossed on the headrests. They don’t look very comfortable for cruising, but they provide the utmost lateral support on twisty race tracks.

Storage space is restricted to a chamber behind the seats, with just enough room for two helmets and race suits. Yup, that’s far from practical, but as a customer, you should feel lucky that McLaren made an effort to add a bit of room in there. The Brits almost removed the second seat, so space for two helmets is actually a bit of a compromise.


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752208
“Storage space is restricted to a chamber behind the seats, with just enough room for two helmets and race suits”

Another interesting feature lies atop the cabin and has to do with the experience of driving a road-legal race car. The “snorkel” intake on the roof produces “precisely tailored high-frequency” sounds that make the cockpit come alive under full throttle. In addition, low-frequency sounds from the engine are transferred into the cockpit through unique engine mounts. The double-walled rear structure of the carbon fiber Monocage absorb these vibrations and amplify every change in
engine revs, making it seem almost as if the powerplant is “sitting alongside the driver.”

Sounds exciting but, unfortunately, not many of us will get to experience that anytime soon.

Drivetrain

  • Upgraded carbon-fiber tub
  • Weighs only 2,641 pounds
  • Twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8
  • 789 horsepower
  • 590 pound-feet of torque
  • Dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission

2019 McLaren Senna - image 752223
“The carbon-fiber tub is a further development of the structure in the 720S”

Much like its predecessor, the Senna is built around a carbon-fiber tub. It’s called the Monocage III, and it’s a further development of the structure in the 720S, itself an upgrade over the P1’s. McLaren claims it’s the strongest monocoque it has built. It’s also incredible light and contributes to a supercar that tips the scales at an impressive 1,198 kg (2,641 pounds). It’s a bit heavier than the F1, which weighed in at 1,138 kg (2,509 pounds), but it’s very impressive for a modern supercar.

Power comes from an upgraded version of the twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine that McLaren introduced in the 720S. On top of the upgraded components, the powerplant also gained lighter internals. Although the successor to the P1 was expected to be a hybrid, there’s no electric motor in the Senna. The decision is somewhat awkward given McLaren’s aim to electrify its entire lineup, but maybe the Brits are planning another supercar with a gasoline-electric combo.


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752201
“Power comes from an upgraded version of the twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine”

But despite not being backed by an electric motor, the V-8 is plenty powerful, being rated at 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. That’s an extra 79 horsepower and 22 pound-feet of twist over the 720S. Compared to the P1 in gasoline-only mode, it’s a 62-horsepower and 59-pound-foot upgrade. However, the Senna is actually 114 horsepower and 133 pound-feet below the P1’s total hybrid rating. It’s a bit disappointing that a brand-new supercar is less powerful than its predecessor, but the better power-to-weight ratio (659 horsepower per tonne vs. 647) and the superior aerodynamics should make it quicker and more agile. Unfortunately, McLaren has yet to release 0-to-60 acceleration and top speed figures.

Beyond the power rating, the V-8 uses motorsport-honed dry sump lubrication and a flat-plane crankshaft. A dual-clutch, seamless-shift, seven-speed transmission delivers the power to the rear wheels. The fully automatic mode is default, but the driver can choose full manual control of gear shifts via carbon-fiber paddles mounted behind the steering wheel.

The Senna rides on a RaceActive Chassis Control II hydraulic suspension that works in conjunction with the front and rear active aerodynamics system. The double-wishbone features hydraulically interconnected dampers and hydraulic anti-roll bars instead of the conventional mechanical units. The whole system is a further development of the variable stiffness and ride height technology first seen in the McLaren P1

The stiffness is controlled using a kinetic roll system, while a new Race mode lowers the ride height, lowers the center of gravity, and stiffens the suspension.

Stooping power comes from a new, advanced braking system with carbon-ceramic discs. The wheels, which are limited to just one design with a race-spec center nut, come wrapped in bespoke Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires. Made specifically for the McLaren Senna, these tires were designed for the race track but approved for road use.

Prices


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752211

Pricing for the McLaren Senna starts from £750,000 including taxes in the United Kingdom. This converts to around $1 million as of December 2017, but we’ll have to wait for official pricing for the U.S. market for an exact figure.

Interestingly enough, the Senna costs less than the P1, which retailed from £866,000 in the U.K. Having said that, it’s likely that U.S.pricing for the Senna will be lower than the P1, so expect it to fetch less than $1.35 million. I’d venture to say that the supercar will start from around $1.15 million.

Production of the Senna will be limited to 500 units, which is 125 more than the P1, which was built in 375 examples. According to McLaren, the entire production run is already sold out. The official debut will take place at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018.

Competition

Finding competitors for the Senna is a difficult task. While there are plenty of powerful supercars out there, like the Ferrari 812 Superfast and the Bugatti Chiron, none are as capable at the track as the Senna. The Aston Martin Vulcan would have what it takes to give the McLaren a run for its money, but you can’t drive it on public roads. This leaves us with just two high-profile supercars that have yet to be launched for sale as of December 2017.

Aston Martin Valkyrie


2018 Aston Martin AM-RB 001 - image 722966

Developed with input from Formula One genius Adrian Newey, the Valkyrie is as innovative as the Senna. It has aggressive aerodynamics, F1-inspired styling, and loads of unique features that you can’t see on other production cars. And it’s road legal. Wild-looking on the outside, the Valkyrie is very simple on the inside, where Aston Martin took the same no-nonsense approach as McLaren. This car is made almost entirely of carbon-fiber and, unlike the Senna, it’s being designed to deliver a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. Specifics aren’t yet available, but it’s safe to assume that the Valkyrie will crank out more than 1,000 horsepower and hit 60 mph from a standing start in only 2.5 seconds. Power is supposed to come from a 6.5-liter V-12 engine, but it’s not yet known whether it will be part of a hybrid drivetrain or not. Production will be limited to “between 99 to 150 vehicles,” including the prototypes and the 25 track-only cars, so it will be quite the rare gem. It will be more expensive than the McLaren too, as it will cost more than the Vulcan, which retails for a whopping $2.3 million.

Mercedes-AMG Concept One


2020 Mercedes-AMG Project One - image 730644

AMG’s very first supercar project isn’t supposed to arrive until 2019, but we already know a few things about it. Styling-wise, the most noticeable thing about it is that it doesn’t look like a Mercedes. Second; it’s not as radical as the Senna and the Valkyrie, but this isn’t a bad thing if you like more subdued designs. Still, it’s supposed to have race-like aerodynamics and downforce for solid performance on the track. And yes, it will be road legal too. The interior follows the same “form follows function” ethos with a clutter-free dashboard and a simple center console. But unlike the competition, it has massive displays in the center stack and the instrument cluster. The steering wheel is a tad more complicated too. Just like the Senna and the Valkyrie, there’s carbon-fiber almost everywhere you look. Motivation comes from a Formula One drivetrain that combines a 1.6-liter V-6 with an electrically-boosted turbocharger and an electric motor connected to the crankshaft. Total system output is expected to exceed 1,000 horsepower. Unlike the competition, the Concept One will also be able to run on electricity alone, albeit for only 15 miles or so.

Conclusion


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752222

I feel I should wait for the performance specs before making such a statement, but the McLaren Senna is the most radical supercar ever built. The aerodynamics seem to be out of this world, and the power-to-weight ratio is downright tremendous. To the extent that the Senna doesn’t need to be more powerful than its predecessor. Yeah, sure, I’m surprised that the Senna isn’t McLaren’s most powerful vehicle yet, but power isn’t always everything, especially in the case of cars that need to perform well on the track too. And the Senna was designed to do just that. It’s a race car that somehow is legal to use on public roads, and not many companies can do that. Yes, the Bugatti Chiron, for instance, is more powerful and has the higher top speed, but it simply sucks at the track. It wasn’t built to race, and it doesn’t have the ability to do so. As a race-ready vehicle for the road, the Senna is a unique car at this point, and the fact that it looks so radical only makes it that much better. Over to you, Ferrari.

A Tribute to Ayrton Senna


2019 McLaren Senna - image 752317
“The car is named after Ayrton Senna, one of the world's greatest Formula One drivers”

The car is named after Ayrton Senna, one of the world’s greatest Formula One drivers. Senna raced Formula One cars for 11 years, six of which it spent with McLaren. The Brazilian joined McLaren in 1988, after four years with Toleman and Lotus, when the British firm was racing Honda engines. Senna went on to win his first championship with McLaren in 1988 while finishing the 1989 season in second position. Two more titles followed in 1990 and 1991, helping McLaren become one of the most prominent F1 constructors at the time. His 1992 season was less impressive with a fourth-place finish, while in 1993 he lost the championship to Alain Prost. In 1994, Senna made the switch to Williams. The Brazilian driver died following a crash at the San Marino Grand Prix, when his car left the racing line at nearly 200 mph, running into a concrete wall. McLaren has won a total of eight constructors’ championship between 1974 and 1998, four of them scored with Ayrton Senna in the team.

“Our family is extremely proud of the naming of the new Ultimate Series McLaren Senna. This is the first project that really connects with Ayrton’s racing spirit and performance. The McLaren Senna honors my uncle because it is so utterly dedicated to delivering a circuit experience that allows a driver to be the best they can possibly be. There is an absolute, seamless connection between car and driver and this pure engagement, these sensory cues that a driver responds to and relies upon, ensure an experience so focused and immersive that you are left in awe of the depths of excellence the McLaren Senna possesses,” said Bruno Senna, racing driver and McLaren ambassador.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun!

Launched in December 2017, the Lamborghini Urus is as fresh as they get. And it’s quite impressive too. Not only the first SUV made by Lambo (the LM002 was a pickup truck) and the company’s first turbocharged production model, the Urus is also the world’s fastest crossover, boasting a top speed of 190 mph. Mind-boggling to say the least! It’s also pretty quick as well, needing only 3.6 seconds to hit 62 mph. That’s quickest than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S! Finally, it’s the most powerful production SUV, besting the Bentley Bentayga by a whopping 50 horsepower. But it’s also very expensive at $200,000, not counting the many options you can have. Speaking of which, Lamborghini just fired up the vehicle’s online configurator, so if you’re planning to place an order, you can choose your options in just a few minutes.

The configurator doesn’t give access to pricing, but it lists every single option available. This is actually something new, as previous configurators had scarce information and you had to go to a dealer to find out more. Now you can go beyond the usual exterior colors and interior upholstery and pick between various trims, carpets, contrast stitching, and a ton of technology and convenience features. It’s actually a nice way to spend a few minutes on this car even if you don’t have over $200K in your bank account.

Continue reading for the full story.

Exterior


Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun! - image 751850

As with any car configurator out there, you start off by selecting the exterior color. The offer isn’t as varied as you’d expect from Lamborghini, but you can pick between seven appealing colors. The palette includes Nero Helene, Blu Astraeus, Verde Hebe, Bianco Monocerus, Giallo Auge, Grigio Lynx, and Blue Eleos.

Interior


Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun! - image 752117
“As soon as you picked your favorite hue, you can go inside the cabin and select the color and trim”

As soon as you picked your favorite hue, you can go inside the cabin and select the color and trim. Things get a bit more complex here. First up, you have to pick between Unicolor, Sportivo, and Elegante leather. The main difference between them is that Sportivo is a two-one options, whereas the other two have just one color. Unicolor is black, while Elegante includes hues like brown, white, red, and cream. Alcantara interiors in Unicolor and Sportivo are also available. Once you selected the color you can choose what type of stitching you want, in either matching or contrasting colors. Lambo also offers a special trim option called Q-Citura with leather.

Next up are the floor mats, which come with leather piping and double stitching. The carpets match to the main hide, but you can get colored stitching for a striking contrast (especially if the upholstery is black). Moving over to the steering wheel, you can choose between sued leather and perforated leather. You can also have it in leather that matches the upholstery. Stitching options include matching it to the basic color or the contrasting color on the seats (for the Sportivo option).

“As for trim, you can choose between carbon-fiber and wood packages”

For seating options, there’s the fully electric, ventilated front seats with massage function and the option to get a two- or three-seat back row. The embroidered Lamborghini logos on the headrests are also optional. As for trim, you can choose between two carbon-fiber packages. There’s the small package with carbon on the door panels, center console, and passenger-side dash, and the big package with extra carbon for the center stack and around the instrument cluster. If you’re the classy type, you can have wood inserts instead. Options include piano black, open pore, and open pore with aluminum inlay.

Finally, you get down to the Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, a rear-seat entertainment system, an ambient light package, and off-road modes.

More Options

“The Urus is available with a ton of options, including both technology and convenience features”

The Urus is available with a ton of options, including both technology and convenience features. There are a head-up display and night vision for the instrument cluster, as well as driving assistance features like Highway Assistant, Full ADAS, and the Urban Road Assistant. The hands-free tailgate and the washing package will definitely make your life easier too. You can also get a TV tuner with Pay-TV, DAB tuner, heated rear seats, and steering wheel heating.

Other options include a garage door opener, a cargo management system, acoustic glass, top view camera, an electrical trailer hitch, sport side steps, roof box, cross bar transport system, and a load assist tray. Tire options include Pirelli P-Zero summer or Corsa rubber, a 21-inch spare wheel, winter tires, and snow chains. You can also extend the warranty by four or five years.

Unfortunately, the configurator doesn’t include pricing for each option so you can’t get a total at the end of your configuration process.
