Ford has gone on record saying its GT supercar will compete one final time at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but it is not retiring from the French race quietly. Instead, it is going out with a bang. Ford and its race partner Multimatic today revealed the Ford GT Mk II, a limited edition, track-only GT with 700 horses underneath the hood and a $1.2 million starting price. "The GT Mk II unleashes the full performance potential of the Ford GT without any artificial performance limitations dictated by racing sanctioning bodies," said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford chief product development and purchasing officer. "It’s the closest GT owners can get to the Le Mans-winning performance and exhilarating feeling... Read more...
The 219 Goodwood Festival of Speed saw the introduction of a gorgeous new supercar that resurrects a legendary nameplate -- De Tomaso. For those not in the know, De Tomaso was an Italian car manufacturer that that was originally founded in 1959, but officially went belly-up earlier this decade. But the company is back with the brand new P72, and it hopes to enter the elite company reserved for nameplates like Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren. The sexy curves, bulbous fenders and jet fighter-style cockpit recall racing prototypes from the 60s and 70s while still exhibiting a bit of modern flare. As you might expect for a vehicle of this stature, underneath the gorgeous body resides a carbon fiber... Read more...
Well, I found my next car, now I just need a windfall of cash and a 'money is no object' attitude. When that time comes, I have every intention of buying a McLaren 720S Spider, the newest supercar from the British automotive company. It combines ridiculous power and speed with an open-top design (similar to Ferrari's 488 Pista Spider), making it one heck of a drool-worthy convertible. "The new McLaren 720S Spider offers an unparalleled blend of extreme performance, crafted luxury, driver involvement and daily usability—all with the additional exhilaration of open-air driving whenever required. As the most accomplished convertible supercar ever, the new Spider delivers across a remarkable... Read more...
For lots of car guys and gals, owning a Lamborghini is one of those things you aspire to if you hit the lottery or inherit millions from some long lost relative. Being able to afford a custom one-of-a-kind Lamborghini is something that many Lambo fans never consider, but Lamborghini does occasionally build one-off rides for the well-heeled fans out there. It's latest one-off car is called the SC18 Alston, and it is based on the Aventador platform. This road car was built by Lambo's racing division called Squadra Corse, and it looks fantastic. While this is a road car, Squadra Corse went at the engineering and build of the SC18 to make it as fast as possible around a race track. All the wings,... Read more...
The guys over at Hennessey Performance have kicked off the celebration of their 10,000th vehicle being produced. That 10,000 number includes the awesome Venom GT supercar we showed you not long ago, but this new commemorative vehicle comes in the form of a very slick 2019 Hennessey Heritage Edition Mustang. The car sports a very cool livery that was inspired by the 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition that is red and white, with some cool striping and a number badge on the doors. The heart of this car is a Ford 5.0L V8 engine that can be backed by a choice of factory Ford transmission, including the 10-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual. The engine gets a giant 3.0L supercharger... Read more...
Lamborghini builds some of the most powerful automobiles on the planet, and like several other automakers, the Italian company has plans of releasing an electric vehicle (EV), too. That is the reason why some of Lamborhini's engineers are in Massachusetts—the Italian supercar company is collaborating with two laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on an electric super car concept called "Lamborghini of the Terzo Millennio." "Exactly one year ago we have signed an agreement with the MIT-Italy Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology which marked the start of a collaboration between two outstanding entities for the creation of a project that intends to write...

The Acura NSX first hit U.S. streets in 1990 and soldiered on relatively unchanged until it received a facelift in 2002; worldwide production of the aluminum-based two-seater ceased in 2005. During its 15-year production, the NSX was praised for its performance, handling, and everyday drivability. In the nearly ten years that have passed since the first NSX went out of production, its successor has undergone an extremely long gestation period. Honda went back to the drawing board at least once during the development of the second-generation car, but finally showed the world a near-final version of what the vehicle would look like with a fresh NSX concept vehicle in 2012. Now, Acura is teasing... Read more...
