In recent times, Ferrari have tirelessly objected to the idea of branching out into other markets and adding an SUV or EV to its production line. However, it seems they’ve now recognized the value of expanding, and have decided to manufacturer both types in the foreseeable future.
It’s been over twenty years since Peugeot took the brave decision to remove themselves from the US market. But, the French manufacturer now feel the time is right to return, and they’re doing so with the assistance of specialist Opel engineers.
Back in 2012, Beirut was just about to welcome W Motors as one of the newest and most exciting high-performance car manufacturers in the world. Soon after, they announced the release of the Lykan HyperSport and it featured in Fast and Furious 7 after being driven across from one skyscraper to another (unrealistic? maybe, but it looked fantastic!).
At the Los Angeles Auto Show recently, we welcomed some fantastic new models and it’s got us quite excited for the upcoming year. As a part of this, the Saleen 1 was revealed and it looks as though they’ve held back a little. Rather than going all out with the bells and whistles, the Saleen 1 is compact and surprisingly advanced for this stage of the process.
After the Concept_One electric hypercar, Rimac would be forgiven for retiring right now. However, the world continues spinning and the rumors are swirling with regards to the follow-up model. With the original, just eight were built which, you would think, would lead to struggles but Rimac followed in the footsteps of Pagani with their Zonda and generated interest in all four corners of the globe. Now, Rimac is causing a sensation once again after a simple Facebook post.
In one of the cleverest reveals we’ve ever seen, and also one of the most surprising, those who were watching the reveal of the Tesla truck thought that’s all they would be seeing. Instead, the truck was carrying something that stole the show; that something was the new Tesla Roadster.
Isn't it great when a new car comes along with a simple and ordinary name? With no bells or whistles as far as the name goes, the Corvette ZR1 convertible doesn’t even stretch to a capital ‘C’. When it comes to the model itself, it’s anything but ordinary with 755bhp and a 6.2-liter V8 engine!
After months of speculation, BMW finally revealed the i8 Roadster production version recently at the 2017 LA Motor Show. In the UK, the two-seater is expected to enter the market towards the beginning of 2018 next to the face-lifted two-plus-two i8 Coupe. Reaching nearly 370bhp, this petrol-electric hybrid has been a long wait after the concept was originally shown at the Beijing Motor Show in 2012. Last year, we saw the updated concept at the Consumer Electronics Show but it’s good to finally have the production model on show.
As we’ve seen with the recent news releases regarding the Tesla Roadster, it’s going to be incredibly fast. With this in mind, it’s fair to say the vehicles that utilize an internal combustion engine are now under great pressure. Although there’s no denying their position within the market, they currently have an image of being not just less efficient than electric cars but also less ‘trendy’.
Tesla has done it again, and the new Tesla Semi is here to take your breath away! After continuous speculation as to the details and features of the new Semi, the trucking world has stood in awe. Its performance goes beyond expectations and allows truckers to make the most of their experience. How would you feel about driving a Semi that goes faster than super-cars?
