Acid Green Porsche 918 Spyder for Sale – 1 of only 4 Made in this Color

Acid Green Porsche 918 Spyder for sale

Leave it to Porsche to pull 50 shades of green on their supercar and still manage to make each shade look absolutely beautiful. Acid Green is the kind of color you only find on vinyl wraps, but this Porsche 918 Spyder for sale in Switzerland has that paint straight from the factory.

Acid green was an exclusive PTS color used on only 4 918 Spyders, this is as green as it gets and anything beyond this falls into yellow territory. The car for sale here is equipped with the desirable Weissach Package originally from the factory, worth noting that some regular 918s were later equipped with this package after Porsche offered the Weissach parts through their after market store.

The previous owner(s) were not shy of driving either as the car has already covered 17,000km, almost double the average mileage for 918s. But that’s not a bad thing as it could very well be a sign that service records are extensive and in good order.

This 918 Spyder also benefits from a full body 3M paint protection film, a treatment that costs northwards of $10,000 on hypercars. The seller adds that it’s condition is “like new”. As always pictures don’t do justice and interested buyers should instead schedule a physical viewing.

Peugeot 9X8: Le Mans Hypercar Revealed Ahead of 2022 Race Debut

Peugeot has officially unveiled their new hypercar challenger Peugeot 9X8, the model is expected to make its debut in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2022 (FIA WEC).

The new Peugeot 9X8 is powered by a hybrid power unit with all-wheel-drive transmission, the hyper-efficient prototype fits the Neo-performance strategy of the Peugeot and is a brand-driven project for the French car maker. It combines premium sporting with styling excellence as well as efficiency and technology.

The name Peugeot 9X8 blends with the notion of heritage, the ‘9’ refers to the icons of the brand such as the Peugeot 905 which raced from 1990 to 1993 and the Peugeot 908 which raced from 2007 to 2011. The ‘X’ refers to the hybrid powertrain and the all-wheel-drive technology whereas ‘8’ is the suffix number currently used on all the Peugeot model names from 208, 2008, 308, 3008, 508 and 5008.

The exterior of the new 9X8 prototype features front and rear lighting signatures in the form of three claw-like strokes, lion’s head logo at the front and sides of the car in backlit form, wing vents and Selenium Grey and contrasting Kryptonite acid green/yellow highlights of the body and the interior.

In addition, the interior features a combination of Peugeot color scheme and i-cockpit styling signature for a unique appearance and feel.

The absence of the rear wing on the 9×8 prototype is an innovative step from Peugeot engineering team, the absence of the rear spoiler provides a freedom to design a sleek silhouette, maximises the potential of the Le Mans Supercar regulations and the model is still able to easily achieve a high degree of aerodynamic efficiency.

The rear part of the vehicle is mounted with a 2.6L bi-turbo, 90-degree V6 internal-combustion engine with an output of 680hp whereas the front-mounted features a 200kW motor-generator unit, seven-speed sequential gearbox and a high-voltage (900 volts) and high-density battery.

The new Bugatti Chiron Super Sport is limited to just 30 units. This is the fastest Bugatti car to date, and easily the fastest car in the world. It is after all built upon the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ which became the first car to cross the 300MPH barrier by achieving a top speed of 304.773 mph (490.484 km/h) back in 2019. The Super Sport 300+ was a prototype, the road going versions will have a speed limiter just like the Veyron Super Sport. The new (limited) top speed will be 440km/h.

The price of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport is €3.2 million euros or an equivalent of $3.9 million dollars.

Moving on to the car, the body of the new Chiron Super Sport generates immense downforce in order to counter the uplift forces exerted on the body when the vehicle is at speeds of over 440km/h as well as improve the balance.

The rear part of the vehicle has been increased by 25cm so as to hold the laminar flow for a long period of time, the diffuser cross-section has also been enlarged and as a result, the rear trailing surface is 44cm lower and the slipstream and wind resistance generated are reduced as well.

Bugatti shifted the exhaust system of the new Chiron from the central to the side with the pipes aligned vertically in order to enhance the performance of the diffuser and create more space. Additionally, the side air curtains and the air intakes at the front minimizes drag and improves the air flow from the front to the wheel arches and over the side radiators.

Each fender consists of nine exhaust air holes for releasing air pressure from the wells of the front wheels ergo streamlined downforce is generated at the front axle, the outlets at the back of the front wheel arches help balance out the aerodynamic loads.

The Chiron Super Sport is powered an improved 8.0 liter W16 quad turbo engine that generates a maximum power output of 1,176kW/ 1,600PS and 1,600Nm of torque accessible between 2000 rpm and 7000 rpm instead of up to 6000rpm. The rpm of the engine was increased from 6,800 rpm to 7,100 rpm in order to improve the agility and performance of the vehicle.

In addition, the Chiron is capable of accelerating from 0-200km/h in 5.8 seconds, 0-300km/h in 12.1 seconds and the acceleration from 0-400km/h is 7% faster compared to the standard Chiron. The performance improvement of the Chiron Super Sport was created by the larger turbochargers with efficient compressor wheels, therefore the seven-gear dual-clutch transmission is at full load and full speed transitions from 6th to 7th gear at 403 km/h. The 7th gear boasts a 3.6% longer transmission.

The new Chiron Super Sports features newly developed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires which have been optimized for top speeds, offer greater rigidity and they are the only tires capable of up to 500km/h consistently. This is made possible due to the reinforced belts capable of coping with immense forces.

Track Only Bugatti Bolide Makes Appearance on the Streets of Milan

Bugatti is attending the Milano Monza Open Air Motor Show with a lineup of their latest hypercars. Making it’s first ever public appearance is the Bugatti Bolide, a track only experimental hypercar that was sold to a long standing Bugatti client. The new Chiron Super Sport also made its first public appearance here. Both cars were driven on the streets of Milan for the public to see.

The new Chiron Super Sport presents a long elegant streamlined bodywork and a combination of top speed and comfort. It is powered by an 8.0 litre W16 quad turbo engine with an output of 1,600hp and a limited top speed of 440km/h. Only 30 units will be produced each at a price of $3.9 million.

The Bolide on the other hand is an experimental vehicle from Bugatti with a power-to-weight ratio of 0.67kg/PS and delivers a maximum output of 1,850hp, it weighs 1,240kgs. The Bolide is developed around a W16 power train with minimal bodywork for improved performance. Bugatti could already be planning to produce a small number of the Bolide which it would then sell for around 10+ million euros a piece.

The Milano Monza Motor Show (MIMO) is running from 10th to 13th of June 2021 as an open-air event, the event will be in collaboration with the cities of Milan, Monza and the region of Lombardy. New models of over 50 automobile and motorcycle manufacturers will be presented at the motor show.

In addition to the Chiron Super Sport and Bolide, Bugatti will also present the full lineup of the Chiron family including the Chiron Pur Sport and Chiron Sport.

A List of Bugatti Super Sport Models from 1931 to 2021 – the Speed DNA

These are some of the Bugatti models that shaped the world of hypercars, aptly wearing the Super Sport moniker. The first Bugatti Super Sport ever created was the Type 55 which was designed 90 years ago by a young Jean Bugatti.

The three following models ; EB 110 Super Sport, Veyron 16.4 and the Chiron Super Sport 300+ together with their drivers have set new benchmarks in the decade in which they appeared. The three Bugatti drivers Loris Bicocchi, Pierre Henri Raphanel and Andy Wallace recently visited Bugatti headquarters to take a trip down memory lane.

1931 Bugatti Type 55

Bugatti Type 55 price

The Type 55 is the only Super Sport vehicle from the Ettore Bugatti era which is equipped with a supercharged 2.3 litre straight-eight engine, the vehicle was unveiled at the 1931 Paris Motor Show 90 years ago and got praises for its top speed, acceleration as well as road holding.

The Type 55 accelerated twice as fast as the Type 43 and could achieve a top speed of over 180km/h. Jean Bugatti designed the Type 55 with a new two-tone color split which ultimately inspired Bugatti to create the horizontal color split in 2010 which was then offered with the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport.

The Type 55 was limited to only 38 units Worldwide making it a perfect collector’s piece.

Bugatti EB 110 Super Sport

Bugatti EB110 SS

Loris Bicocchi was involved in creating the EB 110 Super Sport from scratch in the early 1990’s, the first prototypes of this model were given the code names A1, A2 and A5 and they featured an aluminium chassis. Not long after, it was decided that Carbon would be a better option to use on the model and as a result, the EB 110 Super Sport became the first production car with a carbon fibre bodywork.

The EB 110 Super Sport got its propulsion from a V12 engine with four turbochargers, the vehicle delivers a maximum output of 610 PS and accelerates from 0-100km/h in 3.26 seconds. The EB 110 SS broke speed records of 351km/h in Nardo, 296km/h on ice and 342.7 running on CNG.

Additionally, the power from the engine of the EB 110 is transferred to all four wheels and the quick repulsion and control of the vehicle is as a result of the manual six-speed transmission, rear LSD and the all-wheel limited-slip differential.

The bodywork of the EB 110 SS features aluminium and carbon elements, magnesium cast wheels and titanium screws. Approximately 96 EB 110 GTs together with the lightweight 39 EB 110 SS with 610PS were produced between the years 1993-1995.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport.

Veyron SS

Pierre-Henri Raphanel set a speed record in a Veyron 16.4 Super Sport for a road-legal series sports car in June 2010. The driver attained an average speed of 431.072km/h – 427.933km/h on the first run and 434.211km/h driving in the opposite direction.

The Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is powered by an 8.0 litre W16 engine that produces an output of 1,001 PS and 1,250 Nm of torque. The acceleration from 0-100km/h is achieved in 2.5 seconds, 0-200km/h in 7.3 seconds and all the power is transferred to the road by an all-wheel drive system.

After several engine modifications, Bugatti engineers successfully increased the power output of the Veyron to 1,200 PS. The Veyron model was limited to 450 units up to 2015 and 48 of the units were Veyron 16.4 Super Sport.

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

Andy Wallace was the first person to pass the 300mph mark with the Chiron Super Sport 300+ at a top speed of 490.484km/h in September 2019.

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is powered by an 8.0 litre W16 engine delivering an output of 1,600hp and 1,600 Nm of torque and it is designed and built for extreme speeds of more than 420km/h.

In addition, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ became the most powerful Bugatti ever made. Only 30 will be made each at a price of $3.9 million.

$13.3 Million Bugatti La Voiture Noire Finally Delivered to Mysterious Buyer

The 1 of 1 Bugatti La Voiture Noire has finally been delivered to its owner after 2 years of extensive development and testing.

La Voiture Noire meaning ‘the black car’ was named by Ettore Bugatti’s son Jean after the Type 57 SC Atlantic that disappeared shortly before World War 2. The vehicle is a minimalist coupe similar to the 57 SC Atlantic thanks to the reduced lines, reduced essentials as well as the lack of a large rear wing.

The engineers and designers of the La Voiture Noire have reimagined the historic vehicle and developed a specific shape and style including the dorsal seam down the centerline, an extended front section and the clear lines adorned on the rear. The body of the new model has been finished in visible carbon fibre with a ‘Black Carbon Glossy’ clear coat.

In addition, the finishing doesn’t generate any reflections virtually, the bumpers are gently integrated into the bodywork and the windscreen appears to merge with the side windows like a helmet visor. The attitude of the vehicle has been transformed from a hyper sports car to a grand tourer because the surface of the vehicle appears to have been cast in one piece thanks to the lack of disruptive lines.

The La Voiture Noire features extraordinary details including 25+ individually milled lights elements on each headlamp, each cell of the 3D-printed front grille has been examined to perfection, the rear light features a single-piece surround with no joints for the first time and the new parametric design at the front and rear enables the vehicle to appear sealed but they are actually air-permeable. The six individual tailpipes serve as a nod to the vehicle’s template.

The interior of the new model features grain leather in Havana Brown based on the historic model and aluminium inlays on the centre console, centre spine and the doors. The car also consists of several drive modes that can be changed through a sophisticated rosewood switch.

Bugatti engineers built the La Voiture Noire in just 2 years, each part of the vehicle had to go through extensive Bugatti tests and quality procedures before they were used. The tests took place in the wind tunnel, on test benches and on the track.

Additionally, the bodywork modifications, thermodynamics, cooling, wheels and wheelbases all require perfect coordination in order to ensure new balance. The extended wheelbase and the new bodywork result in new aerodynamics and handling worthy of a grand tourer.

The question remains, who is the mysterious buyer?

Czinger 21C: American Hypercar with a 1350hp V8 and 11,000 rpm Redline

California based Czinger have revealed full specifications of their Czinger 21C hypercar. The car is now production ready after receiving key updates within the last few months. They were prepared to showcase two cars at the Geneva Motor Show 2021 but that was postponed alongside the show itself.

The 21C enters the scene at a time when most car makers are moving away from combustion engines, they have combined a V8 engine and two electric motors meaning it should be able to pass most emission regulations especially in California and Europe in general.

Despite the added weight that comes with a hybrid system, Czinger managed to get a 1:1 power-weight-ratio. The combined output is 1,250hp and the weight is rated at 1.240kg. An optional power upgrade of 100hp is also available, bringing the total power output to 1,350hp. In comparison, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale has a similar V8 hybrid setup but weighs in at 1600kg and produces 986hp.

Even more interesting is the nature of the engine used on the Czinger 21C, a 2.88L twin-turbo V8 developed in-house. This is the most power dense production engine in the world right now. While the engine drives the rear wheels, two electric motors are responsible for driving the front wheels. In addition, the powertrain benefits from a 800v system.

Czinger 21C Specs

Top Speed 281mph / 452kmh
0-100km/h (0-62mph) 1.9s
0-300km/h (0-186mph) 8.5s
1/4 Mile 8.1s
Engine 2.88L V8 Twin-Turbo
Output 1250hp (1350hp with power upgrade option)
Weight 1240kg
Electric Drive 2 e-motors + Lithium batteries
Gearbox 7 Speed Sequential
Redline 11,000rpm

The lithium batteries are charged through regenerative braking and via a Motor Generator Unit (MGU) which is connected to the engine.

The Czinger 21C will be built in Los Angeles and is limited to just 80 cars worldwide each priced at $2,050,000.

The $24 Million Bugatti Lineup: Just 4 Cars Only

All hyper sports cars manufactured by Bugatti are required to undergo extensive tests in order to meet exceptional quality standards. The Bugatti development team set out for the demanding Nurburgring circuit with not less than four models and six engineers. They took over the Nurburgring with the Bugatti Centodieci, Chiron Pur Sport, Divo and the Chiron Super Sport 300+.

The lineup featured the most exclusive vehicle fleet in the world with a net value of just under 20 million euros. The Centodieci is priced at 8m euros, the Divo at 5 million euros, the Chiron Pur Sport at 3 million euros and the Chiron Super Sport 300+ at 3.5m euros.

The Nurburgring circuit is considered to be the world’s most ideal testing circuit with an unusual topography, the circuit consists of 33 left bends, 40 right bends, 17% gradient and an altitude difference of 300 metres. The total distance of the test circuit is 20.832km.

When the vehicles are competing on the circuit, the engineers will note down the overall performance of each vehicle to ensure it delivers perfect differentiation within the performance range of the Bugatti Chiron. After the test drives, the results are further analyzed and transmitted to the development team for further execution.

In the case of the Chiron Super Sport 300+, the developers and engineers check and verify the chassis series setup as finalized before, the hyper sports car was primarily built for top speeds of upto 440km/h. In addition, the developers take the handling and characteristics of the Divo and Chiron Pur Sport models as benchmarks for the new Chiron Super Sport 300+ and the Centodieci.

2006 Maserati MC12 For Sale – 1 of 50 Worldwide

A German dealer has just listed a McLaren MC12 for sale, 1 of 2 MC12s currently available from them with one being a road legal Stradale variant while the other is a Version Corse track only variant.

The MC12 Stradale shown here has only covered 658km from new and is finished in a Maserati special Mother-of-Pearl white and blue shades. This is currently the only road legal Maserati MC12 available for sale on the European open market, it has an asking price of 3 million Euros.

The Maserati MC12 was introduced in 2004 and built on same chassis as the Ferrari Enzo. The company had initially intended to build only 25 cars for homologation purposes but increased the number in 2005 by building an extra 25 units. They also built 14 track only variants known as Versione Corse.

Powering the MC12 Stradale is a 6.0L V12 naturally aspirated engine producing 621hp and 652nm of torque, sending power to the rear wheels via a 6-speed auto manual transmission. 0-62mph is achieved in 3.7s while the top speed is 205mph. The car has a removable targa top which cannot be stored in the car while driving as there is no space for it. Like most GT1 race cars of its era, there is no rear window on the MC12 Stradale, no reverse camera either as those were not yet a thing back in 2004.

Maserati MC12 Versione Corse

Also available from this dealer is an MC12 Version Corse, the only one finished in orange and has only covered 1490km. This one has an asking price of 2.9 million euros.

US Supercar Collector Buys a Bugatti with Dogecoin – a Bugatti Bolide

Bugatti Bolide Dogecoin

Dogecoin touched it’s all time highs in the first week of May, and among the first people to take advantage of that gain was a US-based supercar and hypercar collector. He goes by the username @cococulture_ on Instagram, and on 8th May he announced that he had sold 25% of his DOGE coins to order a Bugatti Bolide. The meme coin had been trading at highs of up to 0.724658 on that day before taking a dip a few hours later, with some people speculating that his major sale could have triggered the dip.

Obviously a DOGE whale, the collector decided to hold his remaining 75% for another winning day. His move comes weeks after Elon Musk called upon major DOGE whales to dump their coins in order to improve it’s overall health. He even offered to “pay actual $” to anyone who dumped their coins in a provable manner – and buying a Bugatti with Dogecoin is probably the biggest gesture towards Musk’s call. According to data collected by Dogecoin Rich List, one whale owns 28.7% of all Dogecoin, while the top 12 whales own 50% of all available DOGE.

The Bugatti Bolide is a track only hypercar from Bugatti inspired by race cars from 1920s and 1930s from the French car maker and most recently by the Bugatti Vision Grand Turismo. It even has the same height as a Type 35 and is rumored to be the last Bugatti powered by the iconic 8.0L W16 quad turbo engine. Bugatti has not indicated how many units they will build, and judging by their recent pricing strategy it could cost northwards of $10 million. The Centodieci costs $9 million, the Divo $6 million and the LaVoiture Noire $18 million plus.

Powered by the same W16 engine used on the Chiron, the Bolide has an increased output of 1.850hp and 1,850nm of torque. This results to an incredible power-to-weight ratio of 0.67kg per hp. Using simulations, Bugatti says the Bolide has a top speed of 500km/h plus and will lap the Nurburgring-Nordschleife in just 5:23.1 minutes.

To improve air flow, the roof scoop features the same design as a golf ball, incorporating dimples on the surface of the intake. These dimples are active and will open and close depending on the speed. They (dimples) will bulge out at high speeds and smoothen out at low speeds.

Manny Khoshbin’s 1 of 1 Bugatti Chiron habillé par Hermès

A special commission by Manny Khoshbin that saw the collaboration between two French luxury brands – Bugatti and Hermes. The result was a unique 1 of 1 Bugatti Chiron.

This Bugatti Chiron was individualized in almost all aspects including the exterior color, interior designs and the unique details inside and outside the vehicle. The teams in Molsheim and Paris worked together to bring the application of custom colors, fabrics and materials into reality.

The color scheme of the Chiron was designed by Hermes to match the leather interior which is finished in ‘craie’ whereas the exterior of the Chiron has been completed in off-white, chalk-derived hue envelopes making it a one exterior color vehicle compared to other Bugatti Chirons that consists of two colors for contrast. The ‘Craie’ shade used in the interior of the car was made by Hermes.

In addition, the ‘Craie’ shade has also been used on the rear bumper, all mesh covers, trim parts and also on the ‘classique’ alloy wheels of the Bugatti.

The exterior of the Bugatti Chiron habillé par Hermès also features a horseshoe grille customized with the H monogram from the Parisian brand signature and ‘courbettes’ motif design under the rear wing.

The ‘courbettes’ design consists of sketches of rearing horses to emphasize the immense 1,500PS output power of the Bugatti Chiron, this design was personally chosen by Mr Khoshbin. In addition, Mr Khoshbin also chose the ‘sky view’ glass roof adding two fixed glass panels above the driver and the passenger.

The original Hermes material in ‘Courbettes’ design can also be found on the middle console plate, centre console tray and on the door cards. The exposed engine bay on the top side of the vehicle remains as the only exterior part not finished in ‘Craie’. The brake callipers are finished in ‘ Italian Red’ whereas the door sills have an aluminium finish.

Almost all the materials used for the interior have been designed by Hermes, the interior features the shade ‘Craie’ on the leather seats, inner signature line, centre console, door clasps and the roof and rear panels. The centre console, dashboard and other parts of the interior have been finished in ‘Ecru’ leather developed by Bugatti. The carpets have been finished in ‘Beige’.

Mr Khoshbin recently added a Hermes McLaren Speedtail to his collection.

First Road Legal Pagani Zonda Revolucion: It’s Happening!

TopCar Design has an impressive Pagani collection that boasts of 6 cars including a Huayra Imola – one of the most expensive new Paganis with a start price of $5.4 million. They have recently acquired a 1 of 5 Pagani Zonda Revolucion, car #4 of 5. This is strictly a track car that Pagani introduced back in 2012 as an updated version of the R, another track only model.

After taking ownership, they approached UK based automotive company Lanzante Limited to perform a road legal conversion on the Zonda Revolucion. Lanzante is famed for converting many track only hypercars to road legal status such as the McLaren F1 GTR, McLaren P1 GTR and more. According to TopCar Design, Lanzante is in the process of studying the car ahead of the actual conversion, a list of changes will be made available in the near future.

After conversion, the Zonda Revolucion will effectively get a road license and run on UK plates. They will showcase it around Europe via events organized by the Supercar Owners Circle. Being an extremely rare car, prices start from around 6 million euros – the value is expected to go up once it receives road legal status.

The Zonda Revolucion is powered by the same 6.0L naturally aspirated V12 found on the R variant, now developing 800hp and 730nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed sequential gearbox. Thanks to the use of carbon-titanium monocoque, the Zonda Revolucion only weighs 1,070 kg.

The Marbella based tuning company also has a Zonda HP Barchetta on order, car #3 of 3. This is the most expensive Pagani model to date, it has a start price of $17.6 million and was created to celebrate Horacio’s 60th birthday.

Glickenhaus Reveals $2.4 Million 007S Hypercar: Nurburgring Under 6 Mins

SCG 007S

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has just revealed a road legal version of their SCG 007 Le Mans Hypercar, it’s called the 007S with ‘S’ denoting street. In July 2018, SCG became the first team to register interest for the new LMH class (Le Mans Hypercar) with the 007 race car, they plan to race in 2021 alongside Toyota’s GR010 Hybrid. Peugeot and Ferrari will join the LMH category in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

The new SCG 007S will bring the same race technology used on the Le Mans car to the streets, as a result it has a predicted Ring time of under 6 minutes. It will be fully legal in the US as well as SVA/TUV approved for markets in Europe and the Middle East.

It features a 3-seat configuration with a center-mounted driver’s seat and weighs only 2,800 lbs including fluids and fuel. Exact powertrain details have not been revealed yet but the output is confirmed to be 1,400hp. The race version uses a 3.5L V8 twin-turbo engine made by Pipo Moteurs from France, output here is capped at 670hp as per the new Le Mans Hypercar rules.

Glickenhaus insists that the street version will have A/C that “will work in bumper to bumper traffic and on the Long Island Expressway on a 100 degree day”. Their motto has always been “If it can’t race the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it’s not that hyper.” Details on the number of units have not been revealed but each SCG 007S will have a starting price of $2.3-$2.4 million depending on the market.

Pagani Huayra R: Track Only Hypercar with $3.1 Million Price Tag Revealed

Meet the new Pagani Huayra R, a track only hypercar based on the road legal Huayra model and limited to just 30 units. With fewer regulations to meet, the engine is now naturally aspirated just like the Zonda R. Each unit will cost interested buyers $3.1 million excluding taxes.

The new Huayra R comes 12 years after the reveal of the Zonda R back at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. A year before this, Pagani was already working on the Huayra road car and it was the desire for freedom that brought about the Zonda R. As the Huayra life cycle comes to and end, Horacio and his team have decided to repeat the same feat – desire for freedom through the new Huayra R.

This will be a track only hypercar and the most extreme Pagani model to date. We expect to see a few road legal conversions, similar to what select owners of the F1 GTR, Senna GTR, P1 GTR and FXX K did to their cars.

Pagani wanted to bring back F1 sounds of the 80s through the new Huayra R, they teamed up with engine specialists HWA AG to create a 6.0L naturally aspirated V12 solely for this new model. The regular Huayra has a 6.0L V12 Biturbo from AMG that sounds completely different from the naturally aspirated unit. This new ‘V12-R’ produces 850hp at 8250rpm and a maximum torque of 750nm between 5500 to 8300 rpm. This power is then transferred to the rear wheels via a new 6-speed sequential gearbox. The engine weighs only 198kg and can rev up to 9,000rpm. Service will be required after every 10,000km.

The exhaust system is made of Inconel just like F1 cars, and can be fitted with mufflers to meet sound regulations at racing tracks. The weight has been reduced to the bare minimum, tipping the scale at just 1,050kg. The monocoque is made of both Carbo-Titanium and Carbo-Triax materials.

The suspension features independent double wishbone made of forged aluminum alloy with helical springs and electronically controlled shock absorbers. It rides on 19 inch wheels all round made of APP forged monolithic aluminum alloy. These wheels are then matched to Pirelli P Zero slick tires.

Rivals include the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12, Aston Martin Valkyrie Pro and the Gordon Murray T.50s – all track only hypercars.

$3.2 Million Valentine’s Gift: 1 of 1 Bugatti Chiron Sport Gifted to Wife

A lucky Lady named Alice will be the recipient of a one off Bugatti Chiron Sport commissioned by her husband as a gift, revealed by Bugatti just one day before Valentine’s. The gentleman ordered it through HR Owen Bugatti in London, every bit of the car has been personalized to meet Alice’s taste. The $3.2 million plus Bugatti Chiron Sport “Alice” is finished in Matt Blanc and Silk Rose – the only Chiron in this combination thus making it a 1 of 1.

The Silk Rose exterior color was combined with Matt Blanc color which dominates the outer shell, lower trim and the alloy wheels. The interior consists of a mix of leather and Alcantara materials finished in Gris Rafale, Alice logo stitching on the headrest of the seats and Chiron Sport stitchings elsewhere in the cabin. The Alice logo can also be found on the silk rose door sills finished in aluminum.

Revealed in 2018, the Chiron Sport has a firmer chassis that provides sharper handling and agility. It’s lighter than the standard Chiron due to the use of more carbon fiber, the 8.0L W16 engine still produces 1500hp. A quad tip exhaust system differentiates it from the regular Chiron. Each unit is going for a price of 2.65 million euros.

A fitting Valentine’s Gift, isn’t it?
