It seems a little frivolous to be offering free servicing on a £69,950 supercar, but Nissan seem to think it will make all the difference in convincing would-be 911 buyers to choose its top-range model instead. Whilst affordability and peace of mind are key attributes of the rest of Nissan’s range, we think it sits a little uneasily alongside a car which can lap the Nurburgring in less than 7 minutes and 30 seconds, but hey, let’s not look a gift horse in the mouth.
Jaguar announced this morning that the C-X75 hybrid supercar, first shown at the Paris motor show last autumn, will go into production with a limited run of 250 cars priced between £700,000 – £900,000 depending on market and local taxes.
The V12 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 made its Asian debut this morning on Lamborghini’s stand at the Auto Shanghai 2011. The event also marked the launch of the Gallardo LP 550-2 Tricolore at a special off-site event held in the Shanghai Expo. The LP 550-2 Tricolore was developed to pay homage to Italy, but this was the first time it had been shown in China.
It looks like the Aventador LP700-4 is not only ‘fast’ in terms of its performance – 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds – but also in how quickly Lamborghini are able to sell them. In less than a month since being launched at the Geneva Motor Show, the first year’s allocation has already sold out and you’ll already be looking towards 2013 for the next available production slot.
Supercars are awesome aren’t they? Well they’re supposed to be and that’s sometimes their biggest problem – the headline figures can become so incomprehensible that eventually they’re meaningless to the average person. Take the Bugatti Veyron for example.
Once you’ve decided you want a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – and you DO want one, the next step is deciding what colour and spec to choose. A range of 13 colors will be available at launch, in pastel metallic, pearlescent or matt finishes. These include the new shades Grigio Estoque and Arancio Argos.
It was bound to happen, despite the numerous images leaked during the past fortnight, and to ensure all eyes were on Lamborghini’s stand, the new Aventador LP700-4 was revealed last night at the VW Group pre-show party guaranteeing it the front-page position on Day 1 of the 81st Geneva Motorshow.
As we continue to wait for the official press launch, more pictures leak out showing Lamborghini’s new V12-powered Aventador LP700-4. These most recent pictures provide a better view of a new Lamborghini colour, which we understand to be called Arancio Argos – and which in case you’re wondering is an orange rather than red hue.
Just hours after Lamborghini’s official release showing us pictures of a rolling carbon fibre chassis, a picture has leaked onto the internet from the print layout of Evo Magazine Croatia.
It’s actually quite a refreshing change to see Lamborghini revealing its new V12 super sports car from the inside-out. If you think back to previous Lamborghini launches the focus has been firmly on the glitz, glamour and sheer celebrity of the car, which can be a frustrating experience for an enthusiast when all you’d like to see is someone crack open the throttle and silence all the polite conversation.
After all the leaks of last weekend, Pagani have understandably decided to unveil the new Huayra ahead of schedule and forego the charade of teasing us in the run up to the Geneva Auto Salon. So, here is the Pagani Huayra, successor to the Zonda and the second model to bear the name of its creator, Horacio Pagani.
We were beginning to tire of Pagani’s teaser videos of its forthcoming Huayra and it seems we weren’t alone – a magazine spread leaked out on Friday, followed by an official photo and more spreads from the Spanish edition of CAR magazine.
