Final Fantasy Fans With Deep Pockets, You Will Want This FFXV Audi R8

We know Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Tony Stark drives an Audi R8, but what you probably don’t know was, this German luxury exotic car also made an appearance in Square Enix’s role-playing video game, Final Fantasy XV. Yes, it did and also, what you didn’t expect was, Audi and the team over at FFXV actually worked together to roll out a special edition Audi R8 based on the game’s and the result is simply stunning. Dreamily referred to as “The Audi R8 Star of Lucis,” there is only one in existence and it is for sale to drum up the game’s launch, for “only” 50,000,015 Yen, or a little under 470,000 American dollars based on today’s going rate.

Look, It’s The Lamborghini Centenario, But Now Without The Roof

Remember that wild, one-off Lamborghini Centenario coupe? Well, if you missed it because all 40 of those have been snapped out, then we believe you will miss the open-top variant too. I am not being pessimistic here; the fact is with far less units being offered, or 20 units, to be exact, the stock is not going to last very long – even if it cost well over two million euros and upwards. Anywho, in case if there’s one available, you should be very happy because the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster Supercar is essentially the coupe, sharing much of the coupe’s lines, features and even power plant. The only difference between the coupe and the open top is, of course, you get additional exhilaration of winds in your face while going 200 mph or more.

First Images Of Droptop LaFerrari Revealed And They Are All Sold

The world is surely not lacking of petrolheads with boatloads of cash to spare. First, we read about the Jaguar XKSS continuation model flying off the showroom without it actually hitting the showroom floor, and now the same has happened to Ferrari‘s droptop version of its hybrid performance car, LaFerrari. The first images was first unveiled on the July 5th, but the book has already closed after Ferrari did a special client preview. The al fresco LaFerrari is all sold. Well, what can we say? That’s one of the perks of being obnoxiously rich, isn’t it? Not just the bad guys get all the good stuff in the movies, but richie rich in real world gets all the good stuff too. Continue reading First Images Of Droptop LaFerrari Revealed And They Are All Sold

GTC4Lusso Is The First Ferrari With All-Wheel Drive And Rear-wheel Steering

Ferrari’s chairman Sergio Marchionne was quoted saying that Ferrari will not build a SUV. He said and I quote “you have to shoot me first.” But that might change now that it is a publicly traded company and perhaps with the introduction of a Ferrari hatchback, or more gloriously refer to as ‘shooting brake’, the Ferrari FF and now, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso Grand Tourer, it is a start of a shift? We are not going to pass any judgement on the Italian marque’s plan. They do what they need do to keep their pockets filled and keep their stakeholders smile, while we will continue to admire the stallions they roll out. Back to the oddly named GTC4Lusso. Continue reading GTC4Lusso Is The First Ferrari With All-Wheel Drive And Rear-wheel Steering

Lamborghini Unveils 760HP, 2.8 Secs Centenario LP 770-4 At Geneva

If Ferruccio Lamborghini were still alive today, he’d be 100 years. To mark his 100th birthday, the Raging Bull marque has unveiled a special model aptly called Centenario. Now, we all know how Lamborghini’s design has always been visually bold, but this one here is perhaps the wildest yet, save for the Veneno (which looks more like Decepticon than a real world car). Based on the company’s Aventador, the Centenario is powered by a naturally-aspirated V12 motor mated to a 4WD drivetrain via a 7-speed ISR transmission and dry double plate clutch. Continue reading Lamborghini Unveils 760HP, 2.8 Secs Centenario LP 770-4 At Geneva

Qatar’s First Sports Car May Have The Attentions For All The Wrong Reasons

There are concept cars that garnered many looks, but in the case of Qatar’s first-ever sports car, those looks could be for all the wrong reasons. I mean, just take a look at the images of this out-of-this-world, Transformers-ish exotic ride conjured by Texas A&M at Qatar. One look at it, you know this car is out to defy every conventions in the car design rule book. When Jalopnik’s Jason Torchinsky came up with a meme that says “Keep the sheet on. Trust me, he wasn’t joking. The car looks like a rolling geometric shape with more sharp edges than curves which a car rightfully should have in accordance to, you know, the principle of aerodynamics. Continue reading Qatar’s First Sports Car May Have The Attentions For All The Wrong Reasons

Meet The Aurelio, The First Filipino-made Exotic Supercar

Exotic sports car is no longer the domain of well-funded, big players in the automotive industry. In recent years, we have witnessed smaller entities turning out pretty mind-blowing exotics, but most of them hailed from Europe. Unbeknownst to us, a country of 98.39 million folks in Asia has turned out a pretty dope exotic ride, which the company humbly refers to as a “sports car.” The country in question is the Philippines, a nation that’s not particularly well-known for making cars, but that hasn’t stop Aurelio Concepts Inc. from giving it a shot. Continue reading Meet The Aurelio, The First Filipino-made Exotic Supercar

Hyundai Joins Playstation’s Vision Gran Turismo with 871HP Hydrogen Fuel-cell Concept Race Car

Mercedes-Benz has done it and so has Peugeot and many other prominent automakers. Now, South Korea automaker, Hyundai, is in it too. We are talking about Playstation’s digital concept car designed by car makers exclusively for Playstation’s Gran Turismo video game series. That’s right. Hyundai, probably the last automobile manufacturer one would imagine to come up with a Le Man-like race car, also has its very own Vision Gran Turismo. Continue reading Hyundai Joins Playstation’s Vision Gran Turismo with 871HP Hydrogen Fuel-cell Concept Race Car

Ferrari F80 Supercar: a Stunningly Beautiful Concept That’s Not a Product of Ferrari Design Studio

Before you go gaga over this Ferrari F80 Supercar Concept, you ought to know that this isn’t a concept product from the Maranello sports car maker and it has nothing to do with the recent Frankfurt Motor Show either. This is in fact, a product of the imagination of Italian designer Adriano Raeli. No, wait. Raeli did not just dream it on a CAD program; he actually sculpted a scale model of his design and we think Ferrari should seriously considering picking his concept up. Man, this thing is an absolute beauty and being a graduate of Transportation Design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Raeli sure knows what he is dabbling in. Continue reading Ferrari F80 Supercar: a Stunningly Beautiful Concept That’s Not a Product of Ferrari Design Studio

SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo is SRT 20 Years into the Future, Packs a Mind-blowing 2,590HP

In the virtual world, anything goes and while 2,000+ HP seems like more than mere ridiculous (or insane, some says) number for a motor vehicle, it is totally sound and acceptable in the virtual racing world. Case in point: the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo, the latest addition to Gran Turismo 6’s growing portfolio of Vision Gran Turismo concept cars conjured up by leading automakers, which happens to pack an unholy 2,590 horsepower. A product of Street and Racing Technology, the single-seat SRT Tomahawk is a collaborative effort with Polyphony Digital and is SRT’s vision into 20 years. Three models will be offered in the game: ’S’, ‘GTS-R’ and X. The latter is the range-topper, making the said 2,590 ponies from its V10 powertrain. ’S’, by the way, is the ‘entry level’ SRT Tomahawk, while the ‘GTS-R’ is the racing variant and the ‘X’ is what SRT called “the experimental technology ultimate version,” or as we like to call the insane version.
