Unveilings, reviews and news. Be updated about the supercar world.
Bugatti celebrating its 110th birthday - again. Would you buy your child an electric 2.8 meter long kid car, that costs 30.000 "bugs"? Well, it's limited to 500 units. So maybe the value will increase. And it has 3 different driving modes. The "child mode" has a topspeed of 25 km/h. In the "adult mode" you will make it up to 45 km/h. And if that is not enough, an additional speed key (as in the Chrion) sets the power of 4 kw to mind blowing 10 kw and opens the speed limit.
There are 3 lines to choose from: Baby II, Baby II Vitesse (with carbon fiber) and Baby II Pur Sang (with aluminium body).
The next Pebble Beach surprise: McLaren reveals a competitor against the Ferrari Monza SP01 and SP02. So far there is no official name for the Speedster with no roof and no windscreen.
399 units will be produced. That is 100 less than the Ferrari Monza. The price will be somewehre between the Senna and the Speedtail. So probably 1.5 - 2 Million £.
Today is the official announcement in Monterey - the presentation of the final car will be in 2020. It will carry a variant of the V8 twinturbo, known from the McLaren Senna.
The Name: Bugatti Centodieci - translated: 110. So that would be, when a Divo and an EB110 make love. Of course Bugatti can not come empty-handed to this year Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
Under the hood the same W16 engine from Chiron, Divo and La Voiture Noire does his job - but this time with 1600 hp. There will only be 10 units of the Centodieci. The price is estimated with around 8 Million Euro. Maybe we know more about this stunning car after Monterey Car Week.
What a surpsie, when I spotted those four cars in front of the Mandarin Hotel. Pagani Huayra Lampo and LaFerrari from Montana, F12 Berlinetta and 458 Speciale Aperta from New York.
On Sunday the 11th August they made their way from Munich to Berlin, but were stopped by the police. The accusation: Illegal racing on the German Autobahn.
The police confiscated the cars and driver's licenses. Actually the drivers even got arrested (Source: Bild.de), but in the meantime they (and their cars) were released again. They were able to continue their journey through Europe and finally got to Prague the next day.
The big supercar party of "Cars and Coffee" is back in town. This year: new organizers - new locations - new cars. So by now it is not clear where the private location will be. But after lunch the supercars will head to BMW world in the nothern of Munich.
Special guest will be @Gercollector, who takes part with his big fluffy Teddy. What 3 cars will he pick? P1? Aventador SV? F40? Or maybe the McLaren Senna, that catched fire at Salzburg-Ring earlier this year, is fixed until 15th September. I will be there! Hoping to see some stunning supercars.
The Renault Megane R.S. Trophy-R is the most expensive french car for the moment (exempt from Bugatti).
The basic price is 60.000 €. But with some extras like the carbon ceramic package with 19" carbon wheels, you have to fork out a little more cash. However only 30 of the 500 units will be available with that package.
The 1.8 liter four cylinder under the bonnet outputs 300 hp - so 20 more than the standard R.S.
This track tool will be mindblowing. After all it's the fastest ever car with FWD on the Nürburgring Nordschleife: 7:40,100 min.
Actually Horacio Pagani - the founder of the Italian hypercar brand - never planned to make a topless variant of the BC (named after Benny Caiola - first Pagani customer ever). But after several gentlemen transmitted him a blank check, he had to make it happen.
The completely new AMG-V12 Biturbo now outputs 802 hp and 1050 Newtonmeters of torque. 40 units will come into existence. Price for the 1250 kg light hupercar: 3.2 million Euro. Almost 1 mio more than the coupe.
