Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4

A new Lamborghini concept car has been revealed at the Paris Motor Show in October 2014.

The full name is the Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 and it’s a petrol / electric hybrid two seat GT car. It is the most powerful Lamborghini they’ve ever built.

At the moment it’s a one-off technical exercise but you never know what might happen if interest is high enough.

The power unit is the 602bhp 5.2-litre V10 from the Huracan which sends power to the back wheels. In addition, there are three electric motors producing a combined 296bhp giving power to the front wheels together with a boost to the back wheels as well. In hp (rather than the British bhp) this totals 910.

I don’t have any photographs I can share at the moment but there are some videos.

I really like the design and I hope this signals a desire by Lamborghini to get back into the GT sector of the car industry.

Ford Mustang

This is an introductory article about the Ford Mustang where Ford created a new type of sports coupé – the pony car with the “long hood, short deck”.

The Mustang has been in continued production since 1964 although, unlike the Porsche 911, it has gone through some big design changes.

American cars have made little impact on the UK and Europe in the 1960s and 70s. The Mustang and Corvette were at least recognised and treated with interest while the larger cars were dismissed. Continue reading Ford Mustang

McLaren 650S

The McLaren 650S is the unofficial replacement for the McLaren 12C. About 25% of it is new while the rest is based on the 12C. While McLaren had intended to build both, from what I’ve read and heard, the 650S is so much better, demand has switched.

It was first seen at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and brings in some of the new developments from the McLaren P1.

Touring Alfa Romeo Disco Volante

The Touring Alfa Romeo Disco Volante is a controversial car. It all starts from buying of the 500 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione cars ever built and then handing it over to coachbuilders Touring in Milan to destroy the beautiful bodywork, wait eight months so that they can create another beauty.

It’s like taking actress Megan Fox and turning her into Jennifer Lawrence.

The Touring built Disco Volante is certainly a striking looking car but I’m not sure that it’s more attractive to look at than the lovely Alfa 8C.

Sorry I can’t find any photos I can use but I’ve linked to Google Images if you’re uncertain what the Disco Volante looks like. There are also videos below. Continue reading Touring Alfa Romeo Disco Volante

Jaguar C-X75

The Jaguar C-X75 is a hybrid power two seat supercar prototype created as the follow up to the Jaguar XJ220 from the 1990s.

In May 2011, Jaguar (in an alliance with Formula One team Williams) announced plans to build a limited production of the Jaguar C-X75 from 2013 to 2015. The limited number was later said to be 250.

This would have made it a direct rival for the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 and LaFerrari. Continue reading Jaguar C-X75
