This is the all new Mercedes AMG Project One. The Project ONE raises the bar for what is currently technically feasible to a new level. The complex development work was carried out in close cooperation with the Formula 1 experts at Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth, England, and with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 team in Brackley. The highly-efficient hybrid power unit and the electrified front axle ensure an exciting mix of performance and efficiency. With a system output of over 740 kW (1000 hp) and a top speed in excess of 350 km/h, this hypercar drives just as it looks: breath-taking. The high-performance plug-in hybrid drive system is an intelligently networked unit consisting of a combustion engine and a total of four electric motors, two of which drive the front wheels to allow variable all-wheel drive. The 1.6-litre V6 hybrid petrol engine with direct injection and electrically supported single turbocharging comes from the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 racing car. The four overhead camshafts are driven by spur gears. The combustion drivetrain installed as a mid-engine ahead of the rear axle is easily capable of up to 11,000 rpm, however for a longer service life and the use of commercially available premium plus petrol instead of racing fuel, it is intentionally kept below the Formula 1 engine speed limit. Not only the drive system, but also the pushrod suspension and sophisticated aerodynamics would be unthinkable without Formula 1 know-how. The characteristic features range from the flat front section with large air [More]

All New 2020 SSC Tuatara is here! SSC Tuatara! Powering the Tuatara is a twin-turbocharged 5.9-liter flat-plane-crank V8. It produces 1,750 horsepower (1,305 kilowatts) on E85 and 1,350 hp (1007 kW) on 91 octane. Power routes through a robotized CIMA seven-speed transmission, capable of shifting gears in less than 100 milliseconds. With a dry weight of 2,750 pounds (1,247 kilograms) and a drag coefficient of 0.279, it should be superbly fast. The Tuatara uses carbon fiber for the exterior and for the monocoque. There’s exposed carbon fiber in places, too. Jason Castriota, who has penned designs for Ferrari and Maserati, collaborated with SCC on the design and aerodynamics of the hypercar. The dihedral doors, which are button operated and hydraulically actuated, are as wild in design as the rest of the car. SCC will build just 100 Tuatara hypercars. The company didn’t release pricing information with the debut; however, back in 2013, the company planned to charge $1.3 million each. This is an important car for SCC, and a worthy successor to the SCC Ultimate Aero, which held the Guinness World Record top speed title until the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport dethroned it. SCC believes the Tuatara can reach 300 miles per hour (483 kilometers per hour). #SSC #2020Tuatara #SSCTuatara

It’s time to reveal the spec that I have chosen for my new McLaren Senna! Let’s take a complete run through of the options starting with the paint colour and tint of carbon, before all of the other parts of optional spec including a lot of items from MSO. Advance warning that spoilers are coming below! With my McLaren Senna due to arrive either early in 2019 or the very end of 2018 if I’m lucky, it’s time to fully run through the spec that I have chosen for my first ever hypercar. The car itself is brutal in appearance as it’s entirely focused on being the ultimate track car that’s road legal but I’m very excited for the colour scheme I have chosen. In terms of general options, the Senna comes very highly equipped to begin with but there are of course endless possibilities with MSO – McLaren Special Operations. For the body colour, I am of course returning to MSO Cerulean Blue! It is by far the best paint colour of any car I’ve ever owned, having been the choice for my loved 675LT Coupe. Right back when I ordered the car by the codename “P15” and did the spec for my 675LT Spider in Orion Purple, I had already decided that this car would again wear the light blue shade – and my mind did not change along the way. However, where it gets interesting are the other options that complement the main choice. With many areas [More]

Lakey Inspired – Cruise W/ Me Aston Martin’s past, present, and future hit the Blendtec with the 2019 DBS Superleggera. Both the DBS and Superleggera names hark back to what Aston was. But the new car is an extension of the current DB11, and its V-12–supplied 715 horsepower is here to illuminate a brighter tomorrow for David Brown’s venerable firm. This is the third Aston Martin to carry the DBS name—George Lazenby as James Bond beached his in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and Daniel Craig violently rolled his in 2006’s Casino Royale—and the first to combine it with the Superleggera modifier. But while Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera designed DBs 4, 5, and 6, that company’s involvement here is limited to licensing the trademark. The DBS Superleggera is mostly a DB11, V-12 examples of which are now all called the DB11 AMR. Those last three letters stand for Aston Martin Racing and represent Aston’s desire to better differentiate between its V-8 and V-12 models. The DBS seen here represents the company’s desire to spin endless derivatives into greater profits. Its bonded-aluminum structure, doors, windshield, rear haunches, and suspension pieces are all shared between the stablemates. If a DBS part carries a structural or mechanical load, it’s a part also found on the DB11.
