Just because you can afford a £200,000+ Lamborghini doesn’t mean you’re happy to spend another £40,000-60,000 personalising it. There ‘are’ other things to spend your money on and contrary to popular belief, even if you’ve acquired wealth that doesn’t mean you’re in a great hurry to dispose of it.
When it comes to choosing a headline for a car as sexy as the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, it’s all too easy to fall back on those tired old clichés which associate top-down motoring with topless glamour models. Both are sexy right?
The McLaren P1, revealed this evening, is set to become a yardstick by which all other hypercars are compared against – much in the same way as its predecessor, the F1, did in 1992.
Given how comprehensive this latest set of pictures is, it’s hard to believe they are ‘leaked’ rather than deliberately ‘seeded’, but either way they now reveal the a huge electro-mechanical rear wing which provides downforce at high speeds, but perhaps also acts as an air brake – as it did in the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
Back in 2010, Lamborghini revealed the Sesto Elemento (“Sixth Element”) – a carbon fibre based supercar, powered by the Gallardo’s 562bhp V10, but weighing less than 1,000kg. The car reached ‘very’ limited production (less than 20 cars), which is hardly surprising given its $2.2 million price tag.
After weeks of teasing, McLaren Automotive has unveiled a new hypercar to take on the mantle of their first ever road car, the McLaren F1. The McLaren P1 has one simple goal: to be the best driver’s car in the world on road and track.
Next year marks the 50th anniversary since Italian industrialist Ferruccio Lamborghini decided he’d had enough of sub-standard Ferraris, and decided to make his own Gran Turismo car – capable of travelling long distances in the style and comfort which he demanded.
In the past few days, three videos have been released from the finest supercar makers in the business – Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani. All Italian (although Horacio Pagani originates from Argentina), all based near Modena, yet somehow each offers a very different take on the supercar theme.
