If you are going to make a car in a ridiculously rich country where 80 percent of its landmass is desert, it only makes sense to make a supercar that can take on the sandy desert like a boss. The Zarooq SandRacer 500GT is one such coming from United Arab Emirates (UAE). Previously a concept, this crazy off-road capable sports car from the young and ambitious middle east sports car maker has reportedly commenced production. Not only that, it specifications to have been bumped up according to a report. The concept from two years ago had a V6, but in the production version, it gets a growling 6.2L V8 unit that kicks out 525 horses and 487 lb-ft (660 Nm) of torque.

Affectionately called “George the Rolls,” this “slightly” custom Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe is Swedish skier, adventurer, car enthusiast and apparently now, a YouTube star, Jon Olsson‘s latest ride. Jon claims it as slightly custom, but to us, this thing is anything but lightly customized. Really. Just take a look at it. It is not quite recognizable as a Rolls, much less a Wraith, anymore. Hell, it doesn’t even sounds like a Rolls! But all in a good way, of course. Under the hood, the stock V12 twin-turbo motor was massaged to deliver 810 horses by The Netherlands’s Absolute Motors and it was dyno-tested as a proved that it is now a living, breathing 810HP beast. Continue reading Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

If you are planning to turn a lovely BMW M4 into a track-going beast, well, don’t, because BMW wants to save you the hassle with this tuned-for-track 2018 BMW M4 GT4. That’s right. The luscious M4 has a track variant and it wouldn’t be anything less of a ‘yay’ for track enthusiasts and racing car teams. As the name suggests, the GT4 is built upon the M4 Coupé, which means it inherited the engine and transmission, including control electronics, from the M4 Coupé, but being a tuned-for-track ride, it gets some serious upgrades like carbon hood from the BMW M4 GTS, carbon-fiber doors, motorsport-specific splitters and rear wings, a racing exhaust system, and seat, brakes and pedal box borrowed from BMW M6 GT3. Continue reading Don’t Modified A BMW M4 Coupé For Track Until You Have Read This!

The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is upon us and like every other year, this prestigious event where classic and vintage cars congregate is also the hotbed for big name automakers to show off their proudest rides, concepts included, and this irresistibly good-looking 2018 BMW Concept 8 Series coupe is among them.

If you haven’t got your hands on the pricey and hard-to-obtain track-focused M4 GTS, or for some reason, you are all nuts about collecting every single M4 that rolls out of the German automaker’s factory, then here’s another for your consideration: the BMW M4 CS sports coupe. BMW said the CS variety fills the gap between the M4 Coupe with Competition Package and the tracked-focused BMW M4 GTS, and it is an exclusive, limited-run special edition model. In other words, it is a M4, that have better performance over the standard M4 with Competition Package. Continue reading BMW Announced Exclusive Limited-run Special Edition M4 CS With 10 More HP
Being a richie rich can be quite a pain. You can’t ride the luxe ride you love or zip city to city in your private jet without piling up on carbon footprint, but if you are a Bentley fan, you’d be glad that reprieve is almost here – thanks to the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e, luxury electric concept car that you’d be hard pressed not to take a second look. Without a doubt, it is gorgeous inside and out, but perhaps more importantly is, it is fully electric which means, instant torque at your disposal. Unfortunately, technical details is still a little muddy, or to be exact, there’s really none. Continue reading Bentley’s Vision Of Luxury Electric Car Is All Beauty And Copper, Lots Of It
Oh wow. Singapore, a country where car prices are pretty much out of this world, actually has its very own supercar and this first for the tiny red dot is not just another supercar; it has all the checkboxes of an exotic ride ticked – ranging from a road hugging build to crazy doors, and also insane roof. Seriously, to call Dendrobium, as it is called, a supercar is a gross understatement. It should be in the hypercar territory, well, at least from the performance figures it is. Continue reading Singapore’s First Supercar Is Electric, Has Hypercar Performance Figures
Remember that crazy looking (in a good way, that is) Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing collab hypercar codenamed AM-RB 001 we saw last year? Well, it now has an official name, and it is called Aston Martin Valkyrie. But why the name ‘Valkyrie’. About that, it is not quite clear of actual reason, except for the fact that Valkyrie are female figures who have a say as to who may live or who may die in a battle. For those who fell in the battlefield, Valkyrie will bring half of them to Valhalla; the afterlife oversaw by Odin, Ruler of the Gods (in norse mythology). Continue reading Aston Martin’s Bold Hypercar, AM-RB 001, Officially Named After The Gods
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.
