There have been several big, mid-engined, V-12 Lamborghinis over the years. Starting with the sinfully gorgeous Miura, through to the spaceship-looking, brand defining Countach, to the sinister Diablo, to the origamiish Murcielago, to the modern day Aventador, they’ve all been loud, sexy, attention-garnering beasts. But have they been any good to drive? Honestly? No, not especially. Not in the driver’s car sense of the word. Well friends, meet the latest Lambo Superveloce on this week’s episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com). Power is up, weight is down, and key handling bits are all new. Does the red monster live up to its name, which literally translates to “super fast?” Watch as Jonny Lieberman finds out!

On this episode of Ignition, Jonny Lieberman heads to Modena, Italy to drive one of the most expensive cars in the world – the uncompromising Pagani Huayra. Named for the Peruvian god of wind, the Huayra represents Horacio Pagani’s notion of what a hypercar should be. With a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12 hand built by AMG that produces a staggering 730 horsepower, the car promises world class performance. But where does Lieberman rank the Huayra in the pantheon of great sports cars? You’re going to have to watch to find out!

On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jonny Lieberman heads down to South Florida to investigate an odd phenomenon. Supercars like the new Aventador S are extremely popular in Miami, however, the roads are all dead straight. There’s no elevation, either. No backroads, no canyons…in a sense, nothing. Why then is Miami one of Lamborghini’s most important markets? Lieberman gets a small clue when three friends show up in South Beach with three other Lambos, including a unicorn-rare Veneno. Still, he decides to head farther south in search of the answer. Does he find it? And just how fast can a 730hp supercar go?

On this episode of Ignition, Angus Mackenzie pays a visit to Molsheim, France to explore the history and development behind the world’s most expensive street legal super car, the Bugatti Veyron. The Veyron has a turbocharged 16-cylinder engine that makes more than 1000hp, can accelerate to 60mph in about 2.7 seconds, goes faster than 250mph, and costs well over a million dollars. Afterwards, Angus then heads to Ehra-Lessien near Wolfsburg, Germany to witness the next iteration of the Veyron, the Vitesse, take on a top speed record challenge, before ultimately getting behind the wheel himself.
