Swedish Skier Jon Olsson’s 800HP Lamborghini Huracan Is Up For Sale

Famed Swedish-born, Monaco-based professional skier Jon Olsson love for cars is no secret. The man’s latest ride, a custom Lamborghini Huracan, is as stunning as his previous rides and guess what? He’s letting it go. Already? Yes. Already. He had it not too long ago, having clocked mere 3,800 km (2,361 miles) on it, but he’s already expressing the wish to sell this luscious ride for 250k euros (or about US$269,000 based on the current going rate), citing he need a 4-seater so he has no choice but to “part with this monster for now.” Wait. Didn’t he have had a handful of performance rides previously that are 4-seater? Hmmm… I guess mind always changes.

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.

Red Bull Racing Has Developed A Road-legal Hypercar With Aston Martin

Almost every supercar maker wants to make the fastest road car claim, but for British marque Aston Martin, it needs not make the claim, nor does it lust after the title – the automaker just collaborates with folks who have extensive knowledge of building really fast cars that weaves around precarious S courses, tackles hairpins and winning competitions to make a car that goes beyond supercar. And the folks they chose to work with is none other than the Red Bull Racing. The result is a beautiful hypercar codenamed AM-RB 001 that promised to be equally apt on the track as it is on the road. In addition, a track-only AM-RB 001, one that will have the performance that’s inline with today’s LMP1 Le Mans sports prototypes, is also in development.

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.

First unveiled at the North American International Auto Show last month, the Acura Precision Concept is heading to the Chicago Auto Show, happening between February 13 and 21 at McCormick Place. This bold and edgy ride coming from Acura’s Precision Crafted Performance looks more sci-fi-ish then anything else. What goes under the hood is not known, but the design is enough to win us over.

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.
