It could be an entry level sedan that is a driving masterpiece or even a concept that wows us at a show, as long as it is awesome then it counts.

Lamborghini Aventador S

Fixing the Aventadors (few) issues

For all its likeably flamboyant design and visceral performance, the Lamborghini Aventador never quite delivered on its promise. The chassis in particular tended to feel a little leaden. So now Lamborghini is upping the ante with the Aventador S. The Aventador’s frankly stunning performance figures, from the 2.9sec 0-62mph time to the 217mph top end, remain unchanged. But to judge the improvements Lamborghini has implemented based on data alone is to entirely miss the point. Because a) the Aventador always had plenty enough performance, and b) the S version is a dramatic improvement over went before. Learn more…

Porsche 911 GT3 (Touring)

A manual GT3. I’m done

Porsche unveiled the facelifted 991.2 GT3 at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show (as a 2018 model year). Extensive changes were made to the engine allowing for a 9,000 rpm redline from the 4.0 litre flat-six engine. Porsche’s focus was on reducing internal friction to improve throttle response. Compared to the 991.1, the rear spoiler is higher and located farther back to be more effective. There is a new front spoiler and changes to the rear suspension. The 991.2 GT3 brought back the choice between a manual transmission or a PDK dual clutch transmission. Following the roots of the 2016 911R, a touring version of the GT3 was introduced that removes the rear wing and replaces it with the rear spoiler from the Carrera GTS to give a more smooth and flowing aesthetic image, though it extends further upwards to provide extra downforce. The Touring is only available with a manual transmission, features leather versus Alcantara, and cannot be specified with the Clubsport package available with the normal GT3. Learn more…

Pagani-Huayra-BC

Pagani Huayra BC

For those who thought the Huayra was too soft

The Pagani Huayra BC needs no introduction. The name “BC” represents the initials of Benny Caiola, a person who has greatly inspired Horacio Pagani over the years. Benny was so impressed by the passion and technology of the cars Horacio was designing from the very beginning, he made history as the first customer to buy a Pagani Automobile. The Huayra BC is the most technologically advanced Huayra Coupé yet, introducing innovative technical solutions which will be applied in the Pagani cars of the future. This not just a “restyling” of the Huayra, but a product that includes innovative changes in every part of the vehicle. It’s a car that has a completely different personality to that of the Huayra Coupé. Learn more…

McLaren 720S

McLaren latest supercar is damn near perfect

McLaren’s new all-scenarios ‘Super Series’ supercar, and thus the successor to the 650S and 12C. It has an all-new body design made from superformed aluminium with gullwing doors and lots of concealed vents and ducts for a smooth appearance – apart from the signature ‘eye socket’ headlamp-cum-air intakes. The bi-turbo V8 engine is bigger at 4.0-litres, developing a monster 710bhp (720ps), and the suspension is a revised version of the original ‘Proactive Chassis Control’ (PCC), with more sensors, that manages roll and pitch even more effectively. In short, it’s not just a new look, it’s a faster, more capable car. And it features a drift-mode, too. Weight has been saved, to the tune of 18kg comparing dry weights, and performance is astonishing – 0-60 mph in 2.8sec (3.0sec for 650S), 0-124 mph in 7.8sec and a top speed of 212 mph (207 mph).

Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

Faster and more athletic 911

The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS might possibly be the perfect everyday Porsche 911 equipped with a faster new turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-six engine. You can also get it for any body style you like – Coupe, Cabriolet or Targa – with rear or four-wheel drive, and a manual or PDK automatic gearbox. The Carrera 4 GTS Coupe with PDK automatic gearbox is the fastest of them with a 0-62 mph acceleration of just 3.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 191 mph. GTS cars are all about pulling the best things from the option lists and then putting it into one attractively priced package. So with the exception of embroidered headrests, decals and 20-inch satin black, centre-locking Turbo S wheels, it would be possible to take a Carrera S and build a GTS in all but name. Add in the PASM sports suspension, a Sport Chrono pack, sports exhaust, Sport Design front bumper, sports seats, and the Powerkit that gives a boost to the engine by 30 bhp and 37 lb.-ft and you’ll now have a GTS without the badges. The good news though is that a GTS costs about $4000 less than adding all the kits one-by-one yourself.

Bentley Continental Supersports

Bentley Continental Supersports

209 mph luxury GT

The Bentley Continental Supersports with its 209 mph top speed is arguably the fastest four-seater car in the world right now. Despite it being heavy with a curb weight of over 5,000 pounds, it still manages to beat sports cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 with 199 mph top speed and the Audi R8 V10 Plus with 205 mph top speed. Its speed comes from its 6.0-liter twin-turbo W-12 engine that produces a massive 700 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque, propelling the car to hit the 200 mph mark even with your friends in tow!

Aston Martin Vanquish S

The ‘ultimate GT’

The new Vanquish S is marketed as the ‘ultimate GT’ by the company. The car’s exterior is just what you’d expect from an Aston Martin car. The front splitter and rear diffuser are now carbon fiber. The front end is has also been redesigned to reduce understeer. What really makes the new Vanquish S exciting, however, is its engine. The car draw its power from Aston Martin’s 6.0-litre V12 engine.

Conceived as a special tribute to the company’s founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Centenario is a top of the line model which features the best that this legendary make has to offer. It is built using Aventador as a basis, but almost everything else is different. The engine is V12 with 770 hp and performance is just as fascinating with 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Since this is a special model, available only in 2017, just 40 examples will be built, 20 coupes and 20 convertibles. The rumor is that the whole Centenario production has been sold out already.

Tesla Roadster

Tesla Roadster

0 to 100 mph is over in in 4.2 seconds (holy sh*t)

The most exciting car announced in 2017 was the Tesla Roadster. It won’t go on sale till 2020, but we always include cars that when they are launched so it makes our 2017 list. The all new Tesla Roadster is definitely the most hyped about car in the world. Try 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds makes it the first time a car cracks the under 2-second time (WOW). 0 to 100 mph is over in in 4.2 seconds and the quarter mile is demolished in 8.9 seconds. Musk said the Roadster had a 200 kwh battery pack and a 620-mile range per charge, or over 1,000 kilometers. Again, another record shattered. Or so Musk claims. The vehicle has three motors, one in the front and two in the rear, all-wheel drive and torque steering. Learn more…

Apollo IE Hypercar

Apollo Intense Emozione ‘IE’

Intense is a good name for it

Apollo came out with a teaser video for the Intensa Emozione at October 17, 2017. The car was fully revealed in October 24, 2017. Amongst all the buzz around the Senna and the Project One, this hypercar somehow managed to slip off everyone’s mind. Apollo announced their return with this hypercar which takes it back to the basics! It has a naturally aspirated V12 engine which makes the best sound ever! Apollo wanted to create a car which was all about the connection between the driver and the machine and that’s why it is called as the Intense Emotion. Even Batman would agree his batmobile appears tame in front of this design. Learn more…

Lamborghini Terzo Millennio

We want the future to look like this

A pure concept car, the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio (Italian for Third Millennium) is a futuristic electric concept car introduced by Lamborghini and developed in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The Terzo Millennio was unveiled in November 2017. The Terzo Millennio uses high-capacity supercapacitors in lieu of batteries, due to their more rapid storage and discharge of energy. These supercapacitors have been made to simultaneously capture and release energy to give the car an increase in performance, without having to depend on chemical reactions. Each wheel, the rims of which glow orange, contains an electric motor, so that the amount of torque can be controlled individually, making the car’s stability as good as a modern Formula One car.
