Here's the candidate for the fastest hypercar from Italy

~SomeONE Dream~ Let's go get closer quickly, if you want to know what is going on in the automotive world today. Since it's not every day there's a hypercar announced, even more it's rarer that we see one of those creations actually go into production.
Angelelli Superperformante D-1 designed by Angelelli Automobili intended to be one of the world's fastest hypercar candidate. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
This could be a different story which would written by Angelelli Automobili, Rome based automotive startup founded by Davide Angelelli back in 2015. As quoted of Carscoops, the Italian automotive startup trying to keep its dream alive through its best effort to build a new hypercar called the Superperformante D-1.
Angelelli Superperformante D-1 built based on an algorithm, which makes it possible to produce the 'Organic Frame Design' with SLM and LAAM 3D printing method. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
From what it looks like, at this point the Superperformante D-1 is nothing more than an artist and engineer's rendering images. The company's websites are filled with aspirational design images and languages but no photos or videos of actual products, parts or production facilities. Still, it's fun to see what one company thinks could be the next great hypercar. From what can be told from there, the D-1 is envisioned with four different trims that may or may not be available in the future.
Interior setup of the Angelelli Superperformante D-1 has modern dash arrangement featured with racing-styled steering wheel and big-screen monitor in the center consol. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
Among them, the lowest claimed power output of 1,000-hp (745 kW) thanks to the combination of a petrol engine and an electric motor. The company even thinks that it can reach over 300 mph (482 kph), something it has heard many times in the past without ever having seen it. On top of the aforementioned base car is the D-1 Model S powered by a 1,250-hp hybrid setup similar to that found on the base model consisting of a twin-turbocharged V6 driving the rear wheels combined with a pair of electric motors driving the front.
Angelelli Superperformante D-1 designed by Angelelli Automobili said to be powered by a 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 1,350-hp (1,06.7 kW) to drive the rear wheels. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
The fiercest Superperformante D-1 will use a 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 1,350-hp (1,06.7 kW), and the automaker claimed that it will be able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in 1.9 seconds. Not bad...in numbers.
If this car was actually produced in any form, everyone would be surprised, because such a performance would surprise any brand. That kind of acceleration is now only for cars like the Rimac Nevera and the Tesla Model S Plaid. And such a top speed has only been touched by a car like the Bugatti Chiron. Keep on dreaming, not to forget give also some hopes to other had to see the dream comes true.👍 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ANGELELLI AUTOMOBILI | CARSCOOPS ]

When the use of pure electric energy or hybrid (combined with gasoline or diesel engines) an option taken by most automotive industry for their vehicles. Apparently there is another alternative fuels that can be combined with electric power to drive the motor vehicle, namely hydrogen.
The hydrogen-fueled Suzuki Crosscage hybrid motorcycle concept has debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. (Picture from: Bikenet)
So on this occasion we will discuss hydrogen powered hybrid vehicle. This Hydrogen-powered hybrid motorcycle is made ​​by Suzuki and given named Suzuki Crosscage Hybrid Motorcycle concept. To make this concept motorcycle, Suzuki cooperating with the British company, Intelligent Energy, which make this a great collaboration since Intelligent Enegy has its own hydrogen generation plants.

Inteligent Energy has a portfolio that includes a range of world-class fuel cell, fuel processing, desulphurization and hydrogen generation technologies. The company's existing home hydrogen generation system means you'll be able to make your own hydrogen at home. This hybrid motorcycle first appeared on the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show along with its sibling called Suzuki Biplane Concept.

The Suzuki Crosscage Hybrid Motorcycle concept is a fuel-cell motorcycle in which a simple, compact, lightweight air-cooled fuel-cell system and a high-performance secondary battery are brought together in a way that realizes optimal power control.

A fuel-cell unit from the British specialist company such as the Intelligent Energy that delivers quick activation with low fuel consumption, and a lithium-ion battery combines safety with a low environmental burden.

The simplicity, compactness, and lightness of these technologies not only make the crosscage environment-friendly; they also helped enable sporty styling befitting the Suzuki name.

Intelligent Energy as the makers of the ENV bike, (say "en-vee") a fuel-cell and electric hybrid bike. The Crosscage concept uses Intelligent Energy’s thin-membrane-construction fuel cells and a lithium-ion battery (unlike the ENV, which uses lead-acid batteries), to "combine safety with a low environmental burden," according to the Suzuki press release.

Not much information is circulating about this bike, but this bike is obviously already using compressed hydrogen fuel is equivalent to 125cc petrol engine and using an automatic transmission. This motorcycle using Michellin tires with 17-inches rims. The indicator panel have been using a combination of the analog and digital.

Despite the eco-friendly copy, the bike looks performance-oriented, and the chassis is as unique as the drive system. The Crosscage's design uses large-diameter tubing and a unique center brace on each side. The front and rear wheels use single-sided swingarms, and overall there is an emphasis on light weight, which should equate to good handling, not to mention longer battery life.

Hydrogen as a cheap, readily available fuel source is many years away, so don’t look for a bike like this in showrooms soon. But as a message that Suzuki can design environmentally conscious vehicles that are still sporty and fun to ride, the Crosscage is loud and clear.
Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA [24062013] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SUZUKICYCLES.ORG | NEWATLAS | JALOPNIK | TUVIE | BIKENET ]

Complete creative freedom (not bound by production requirements) allowed the design team to conceptualize what the electric-powered rides travel in the future might be looked like. Beneath the transparent surface of the car's hood, for example, there're solar cells to extend the mileage of this concept car.

This Maybach fancy off-roader concept  is designed to inspire the younger generation and at the same time remember the spirit of Virgil Abloh who always fights for the status quo and re-presents the rules of aspirational design. The nature of the X-Factor as We could be seen on the Project Maybach results not only from its astonishing size (nearly six meters long), and its characteristics, but above all from its unique contrast finishing touches as well.

This two-door Maybach off-road coupe has very traditional proportions and lines with a large front end and a slightly undersized rear end. Next up is the old-school coupe high above the ground with small steel wheels and thick tires. The matte tan paint color was splashed all over the ornaments, such as skid plates, bolt-on fender flares, stone rails, to the bolster cage with roof basket.

There is additional storage and equipment in special compartments around the cab. Unfortunately, Mercedes-Benz does not reveal yet this fancy off-roder' specific specifications especially regarding its performance and range.
That's not entirely surprising, since this seems to be solely a design exercise, and don't expect to see a production model anytime soon. But it does not rule out the possibility that this special car will change its ownership status one day in future, if there are serious wealthy enthusiasts who had made an agreement with the German car maker to swap it with a certain amount of money. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MERCEDES-BENZ | ID.MOTOR1 | AUTOBLOG | HIGHNOBIETY ]
