Maserati reportedly is going to have a small, 2 door vehicle to replace the GranTurismo. Unfortunately, that’s been pushed back to the next decade some time. Thankfully, not all has been lost.
The Maserati GranTurismo is an absolutely beautiful car. To make up for the pushing back of a new model, they’ve added a few facelift touch ups for a refreshed look. The whole car looks (and always has looked) absolutely stunning.
What’s Been done to the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo?
You may have to look closely to see some of the changes that Maserati has made. For instance, they redesigned the grille which was inspired by a Maserati concept called the Alfieri. Road and Track also reports that it’s going to get a redesigned rear bumper. Unfortunately, we can’t see it yet as Maserati has only released pictures of the front of the GranTurismo.
The sport version of the Maserati GranTurismo will feature a new [...]
Finally! Porsche has unveiled the 2018 911 GT2 RS. This is the most powerful car Porsche has ever made, producing about 700 horsepower from a twin turbo flat 6.
It has a 0-62 time of about 2.8 seconds, and a max speed of 211 mph. Porsche has specifically designed this car to be fitted perfectly for the track. In fact, Porsche describes it as precisely focused, brutally strong, and the perfected driving machine.
With the base price of about $293,200 US dollars, it’s quite costly. Though not surprising, Porsche has made every cent of that price tag worth it.
What Makes The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Such A Perfect Car?
The design goal with the 911 GT2 RS was to have both a high top speed, meaning a low drag coefficient, and race-optimised aerodynamics, meaning maximum downforce. This wasn’t exactly an easy task for the design team.
BMW is a German brand known for mixing elegance and performance – similar to Mercedes. Now, they’re starting to delve into the electric car category. Since the release of the all electric i3, BMW has said it’s planning on making many more electric vehicles.
Earlier in the year, BMW confirmed a couple new electric vehicles in particular being released in the future. They unveiled plans to make a fully electric MINI for starters. They’ll also make a fully electric X3 in 2020. Finally, the upcoming “fully electric BMW iNEXT” should come around 2021.
This left a couple year gap between the release of the i3 and the next electric car. This made us wonder why they’d have such a gap. Thankfully, our questions were answered.

That’s right – an all electric 3 series Beamer (not it’s brother the 330e hybrid). To make matters more interesting, the all electric 3 series would be a main rival for [...]

Lamborghini recently began shipping out the new Centenarios to those lucky enough to get their hands on one. With only 40 built, 20 of them are coupes and the remaining 20 are roadsters. The coupes finished being delivered, so now the first Lamborghini Centenario Roadster built was recently shipped to California.
The Centenario is an extremely precious piece of Lamborghini and automotive history. It was built to commemorate the 100th birthday of Mr. Lamborghini who began the famous brand.
Lamborghini says, “It’s a homage to this visionary man and to the future he believed so much in.” We believe this outstanding car is a great way to honor his legacy.
What Drives The Lamborghini Centenario Roadster?
Under the (rear) hood is a beautiful, naturally-aspirated V12 capable of making 759 horsepower and 507 lb-ft of torque. It has a 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds and a max speed of over 217. The automatic transmission also has a gearbox [...]
A couple months ago, Lamborghini set the Nurburgring lap record in a production car with a time of 6:52, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder. In previous weeks, McLaren has already beaten their record. In fact, the McLaren P1 LM completely shattered their record with a time of 6:43.2.
Yeah, you read that right. McLaren beat Lamborghini’s record by about 9 seconds.
The McLaren P1 LM is a track car modified to be street legal by the company Lanzante. The car was originally a P1 GTR, which is designed for the track and was not legally allowed on the street. Lanzante then took that car and modified it to become street car.
McLaren never officially timed the P1 GTR around the ‘Ring, and since Lanzante isn’t officially backed by McLaren, they took their modified LM and took it for a drive.
Aston Martin began talking about the 2019 Valkyrie over a year ago. First code named the AM-RB 001, it’s now being called the Aston Martin Valkyrie. They first came out with the Vulcan, the new DB11, and now this will be here some time in 2019? This company is working wonders.
When Aston first announced the Valkyrie, they said their goal was to have about 1 horsepower per kilogram (1 kilogram is about 2.2 pounds). It seems that the Aston Martin team may have exceeded that goal and left themselves some comfortable wiggle room.
What’s the Aston Martin Valkyrie Made Of?
Dubbed an “F1 car for the road” by Jalopnik, the Valkyrie is going to be properly insane if the latest reports are correct. We know it’s going to be a hybrid making around 1130 horsepower. Around 1000 of that is going to come from 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12. The remaining 130ish horses are reportedly going [...]
