No. Nissan’s luxury marque Infiniti did not exists 70 plus years ago. What you are looking here is Prototype 9, the marque’s tribute to the race cars of the olden days. Inspired by 1940s race car, the Prototype 9 was revealed at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It is not a representation of the future Infiniti, obviously, and so don’t keep up the hope of driving one in the future. As you can see, Prototype 9 is fabulous looking because it has the design hallmark that accurately reflect the race cars typical of the era. You know, things like an open-wheeled design, outstretched hood, wire spoke wheels with narrow tires, and a single-seater setup positioned way behind, above the rear axle. But why the Prototype 9? Well, here’s why straight from the horse’s mouth: Continue reading Infiniti Reveals A Retro E-Race Car At Pebble Beach And It Looks Fabulous
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
An aircraft can go anywhere, but you can’t say the same for a car – even for an exotic, super fast car like the Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster. However, that’s only partially true if we are talking about the “run-of-the-mill” Aventador, not if you have the so-called Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” currently on sale on James Edition. With the Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” you’d be bagging yourself a highly customized 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster that only has 700 miles (1,127 kilometers) on the clock and in special order color of Verde Singh, but you will also be scoring a matching color and coordinated trim 2017 Marine Technologies “Mei” 52’ G6 speedboat, so your need for speed can continue even when the land ends.

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.

Look what we have here! It’s a VW Golf GTI with a dose of electric power and when we said “a dose,” we do really mean ‘a dose’. How? This particular Golf here, dubbed Golf GTI First Decade, has 410 PS, or about 404 HP, but that impressive number is solely from its petrol engine. You must be thinking, “oh wow, then it must have a lot more ponies under the hood when combine with the electric drive?” Ermmm, no. The thing is, the 48V electric motor, which drives the rear wheels, only produces a very modest 12 kW (16 HP). As you can imagine, that’s really nothing to shout about. Continue reading VW Has A 400 HP Hybrid Golf GTI With An Electric Drive That Will Surprise You

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.
