Dubai's dragon finally revealed

Finally, the United Arab Emirates' hypercar that we have first saw in the teaser image some time ago revealed. As promised, the hypercar has debuted at the 2019 Dubai Motor Show. And no doubt, the hypercar comes in a style that can be said to be inspired by a Lamborghini as said by the company founder Bashar Ajlani in an interview with Top Gear.

The Ajlani's hypercar was named Ajlani Drakuma to have "a production inspired by Pagani." We are not sure what it really means, but we know the intention is to make 99 cars, with each of them fully customizable to suit customer preferences. 

The Ajlani's hypercar carries a V8 turbocharged engine mounted in the middle and is claimed to be able to spew 1,200 bhp of power equivalent to the power produced by the engine of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

As quoted from Top Gear, Ajlani said that while the chassis has not been finalized. The company has "few options" that are being considered. Regardless of the solution, Drakuma will boast a carbon fiber body for maintaining low body weight. Speaking of the body, the doors seem to open like "dragon wings," but all the pictures we have so far are showing the car with the doors closed.

But unfortunately, there is not a single picture that shows the hypercar's interior and from the showcar in Dubai had all the windows blacked out. The possibility is predicted by many who say that the Dubai-based company isn’t ready to reveal what’s inside. This car is actually a design prototype that was built for five years and represents Bashar Ajlani's dream of creating the next Pagani. In fact, he explicitly admitted that Horacio was one of his idols "because he did not compromise on quality."
So it is perfectly understandable why some parties became skeptical about Drakuma's opportunity to actually achieve production, but for what value, at least the car appeared in Dubai as had promised before. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AJLANI MOTORS | TOP GEAR | MOTOR1 | YAHOO NEWS | WHEELS]

Black on black 'Countach Periscopio'

According to Lamborghini's records, 1120182 as recorded initially was destined for Toumblast in Lebanon. The order requires the vehicle to be filled in black with a black interior. This is the only complete example of 150 built. Because of the civil war in Lebanon, orders were changed and vehicles were not completed until May 14, 1976. Shortly after completion, the LP400 was photographed during a driving test and photos used by Lamborghini for promotional purposes.

In the autumn of 1976, the LP400 was sold and shipped to a Lamborghini Distributor in Japan where it was photographed again shortly after arriving which now shows equipped with the required side, rear view mirror, and a larger front turn signal light. It remained with the Lamborghini Agent in Nagoya, Japan until it was finally sold to the first owner on December 12, 1977.

The original owner was Mitsuo Sanami from Tokyo, Japan. Sanami is a famous Japanese celebrity and leading car collector. He was the champion trapper who represented Japan at the 1964 Olympics. The car was sent to him but was not registered on the road and remained undriven for five years of ownership.

In 1982, Sanami sold this vehicle to Isao Noritake, the most famous Lamborghini collector in Japan and also the chairman and founder of the Japan Lamborghini Owner's Club. Like the previous owner, Noritake did not register the LP400 and remained unmanageable in his private museum until it was sold to his friend Yoshiaki Okada who also had never driven on the street or registered this Lamborghini.

In 1990, Noritake bought back the LP400 and, due to lack of use and service, he sent it back to the Lamborghini Plant where it was given full service, and the interior was completely repainted and refurbished. The work took two years at a cost of $ 160,000. The car was then returned to Noritake where it remained not use and not serviced. Odometer currently only shows the original 540 kilometers, all of which are believed to have been added only by Lamborghini during testing after completion refurbishing in 1990-1992 before Lamborghini returned it to Noritake.

In 2015, the car's ownership moved from Noritake to Symbolic International San Diego, California, and then moved back to Peter Dyson in the same year. Now, the elegant black-colored Countach has returned to belong to Symbolic International San Diego, California after buying it back from Peter Dyson in 2018.
And in October 2019, once again this beautiful car will be sold by Symbolic International. But there was no mention of the selling price. Are you interested to have it? Please contact the seller to find out how much the price of this beautiful car. Of course, the price isn't cheap, the estimated price can reach five to six digits. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTORIOUS | JUST CAR GUY]

After burnt, this Huracán appeared wilder

An automotive modifier named Chris Steinbacher who also known as a man behind the Youtube channel called 'B is For Build' had been successfully completed his large project ahead of the 2019 SEMA in Las Vegas.
B is For Build twin-turbo Lamborghini Huracán Custom unveiled at the SEMA 2019 in Las Vegas. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/34Mi7iG)
His special car was built from a Lamborghini Huracán which was previously bought by him in severe burnt damaged condition, and those modification results will be displayed exclusively in one of the largest automotive events in the United States.

Due to initially car conditions, so the modification team formed by Chris Steinbacher decided to rebuild this Lamborghini supercar in custom. And after seeing the engine condition also that has been destroyed and could not be used anymore, which then pushed Chris to give it a new machine, but with a different touch.
'B is For Build' Lamborghini Huracán model on display at the SEMA 2019 with its new engine completed with Audi R8 manual transmission system, Garrett Performance twin turbocharger devices. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/34Mi7iG)
Yes, as we all knew that the Huracán originally used a V10 engine, due to it on severe damage condition then replaced with an upgraded V8 7,000cc twin-turbo LS engine to be able to produce power up to 1,500 horsepower from what was originally only 602 horsepower.

The increasing of the engine power is due to changes in components of the engine block including cylinder sleeve replacement. Likewise, with the support of the use of Garrett Performance's twin turbocharger devices, as well as new fuel pump lines seem also to play a role in those engine's performance increasing.
Before it rebuilt, the Lamborghini Huracán in severe burnt damaged condition. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2CCgSGI)
Then the engine power is channeled to its all-wheels through an Audi R8 manual gearbox to handle more deftly the shifting gear process, so allowing this supercar running by smoothly and fastly on the streets.

The reason to choose Audi's manual transmission system is the ease of installation. Because the Audi R8 is in the same production platform as the Lamborghini Huracán itself. Besides that, the modifier also installed a special exhaust system to support the peak performance of the Lamborghini Huracán Custom.

Meanwhile, to rebuild the Huracán bodywork, Chris Steinbacher collaborates with Khyzyl Saleem's Litani Bodywork Custom. They made this Huracán appear in different suits due to it uses body panels taken from Huracán Super Trofeo.
Unfortunately, there is no information about the performance numbers and maximum speed of the Lamborghini Huracán Custom after going through the rebuilding process. Even in one show on Youtube channel made by Chris ahead of the SEMA event, it has seen his Lamborghini had a slight problem when it was brought to the exhibition location in Las Vegas. Sure, He can handle it. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GARRET MOTION | MOTOR1]

Is this the real form of the latest McLaren BC-03 hypercar?

For almost 1 year, we have known that McLaren is developing a street version of the Vision Gran Turismo Concept which was inaugurated in 2017. The possible hypercar has a codename BC-03 (Bespoke Commission 03) and reportedly will be made only 5 units worldwide.
A spy shot of possible the latest McLaren BC-03 hypercar on the road test. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/33yFY5q)

These images are shared online on many Instagram accounts, including Supercarpress. One of them shows a prototype that is being tested at night, while the rest is considered an official rendering. Not yet determined whether the image is valid, but if so, it looks like McLaren is preparing to launch a hypercar that is even superior to Senna.

The following are rendering images of the latest McLaren BC-03 hypercar.
Front three-quarter of McLaren BC-03

Rear three-quarter of McLaren BC-03
Top view of McLaren BC-03


On the front, the BC-03 features a protruding and low nose with a small headlight inspired by the 720S, while on the side there is a large air intake. Everything gets very interesting in the rear, with the towering wings which also become the seat for the LED taillights and fins that stretch along the center of the decklid share clear similarities with the Vision Gran Turismo Concept.

The McLaren Vision Gran Turismo features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine combined with a pair of electric motors to drive the front wheels and total output reaches 1,150 horsepower and 1,275 Nm of torque. It remains to be seen whether the production car will later display the same or more similar powertrain to the hybrid unit used by McLaren Speedtail. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TOPSPEED | CARSCOOPS | THE DRIVE]

Have You ever seen this Enzo-based supercar?

Supercar manufacturers ranging from large to newly emerging many scattered throughout the world to meet the demand of exotic car enthusiasts, namely those billionaires who are known to have a lot of money.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design with a slick combined design of Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
Usually, well-known manufacturers bring up one model in a limited number, thereby contributing to limit ownership of that model. So many enthusiasts of exotic cars are forced to be disappointed because they cannot have it.

This gave rise to a niche in the market which was then used by other manufacturers to use it. For example, when Ferrari has launched the Ferrari Enzo supercar masterpiece in 2002 to 2004 and produced in limited quantities (only 400 units worldwide). So you can imagine how rare the supercar was.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 4.3 seconds. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
Because the Ferrari Enzo does have its own charm, in addition to being made in very limited quantities, the car is also specifically designed to honor the Enzo Ferrari (the company founder). In addition, the pride of the Ferrari car has a super high price, and the Enzo is no longer produced. So that many Ferrari fans become disappointed because they can not have it.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design uses a V12, 5400cc BMW-owned engine, which able to spew power up to 489 horsepower. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
But don't worry, because from a deep Alpine valley on the Swiss-Italian border comes the mad-as-a-hatter Simbol Design Lavazza GTX-R supercar. If it’s as sinister as its dark-sounding home town of Crevoladossola, it should be quite a ride. This high-powered machine has been in drawn-out development and prototype testing since 2004.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design has been in drawn-out development and prototype testing since 2004. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
Simbol Design, formerly Automobili Lavazza — not to be confused with Italy’s biggest coffee company — was founded in 1975 by Enrico Lavazza. For years he produced racing prototypes, kit cars, and replicas. The company was rebranded in 2005 when Enrico’s son Fabio took the reins.

This supercar has a shape that is almost similar to the Ferrari Enzo, especially on the front, then when looking at the top there's a roof scoop that immediately reminds us of the figure of Pagani Zonda. So it can be said that the car has a slick combined design of Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design with the price estimated at around £270,000 (or approx Rp.5 billion). (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
But the difference, the Lavazza GTX-R uses a V12 BMW-owned engine, which has a capacity of 5,400 cc which able to spew power up to 489 horsepower and combined with 6-speed electro-pneumatic transmission system. Although it is called the Enzo wannabe, the GTX-R's performance is not embarrassing, because the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 4.3 seconds.

The car body is made of carbon-Kevlar built atop a tubular steel frame resulting in a total mass of just 1,080 kg. With a body like that, it's no wonder that this vehicle has been turning heads. The car also comes in two types, convertible coupes, and roadsters.
Although not specified in detail, but in that time the automaker assured that the car has a price that is much cheaper than the original Enzo. As quoted from MoneyWeek in 2010, the car price estimated at around £270,000 (or approx Rp.5 billion). Until now, We never knew how many the GTX-R cars ever built? Or do you wanna see another supercar creation made of the Ferrari Enzo named Gemballa MIG-U1?

As if it suddenly became a mystery, since we can't access the company official sites @ https://www.simboldesign.com/ No info whether the manufacturer is still active or not?  *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CHECK HOOK BOXING | MONEYWEEK | CARBUZZ | THE TIMES | AUTOBLOG]

This is the Diablo You've never heard before

And if you are a supercar enthusiast who grew up in the 1990s, You probably know almost all of the Lamborghini Diablo variants. There are SV, VT, S30 Jota, even GTR. But have you ever heard of this kind of variant called the Lamborghini 132 GT1?
1998 Lamborghini 132 'Diablo' GT1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2WMv4Gn)
At the end of the 1990s, everybody was getting into high-end racing, partly because thought it was awesome, but partly because it was theoretically possible to go racing at the top level with a legally street-car-based racing car. 

Few famous automotive brands tried it out, even Ferrari (usually mere focused on Formula One alone) attempted with their Ferrari F50 GT. Some of them even managed to have success, like McLaren with their F1 GTR, which claimed overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Right side view of 1998 Lamborghini 132 'Diablo' GT1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36A9BVM)
Seeing all this craziness going on, Lamborghini decided to get into it, too – which was unusual, when you consider that Lamborghini didn’t have a lot of racing pedigree at the time. Yes at that time, Lamborghini started an ambitious sports car racing program that would make it compete with the Porsche 911 GT1, McLaren F1 GTR, etc.
Left side view of 1998 Lamborghini 132 'Diablo' GT1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2PRoE7K)
Then Lamborghini collaborated with a French company, Signes Advanced Technology (SAT), to design and build a racing car. In the beginning, everything went well, those two companies collaboration even succeeded in building a single road-going example to complement the racing car, and making it managed to get a homologation approval of the FIA to make it all legal.

Unfortunately, this project was suddenly canceled, but already there are 2 units of Diablo racing cars that have been built. It’s unclear as to why the program came to an end, though we can make a few reasonable guesses. The cars were built in early 1998, but by September of that year, Audi bought Lamborghini and the program was brought to a halt. 
Interior view of 1998 Lamborghini 132 'Diablo' GT1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2NNZcNy)
In the end, the race version of the Lamborghini 132 GT1 ended up competing a little bit in Japan. The road car, such as it is, actually still exists, but what is needed is one look to understand that it is a true classic Lamborghini beast.
Engine view of 1998 Lamborghini 132 'Diablo' GT1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2NNZcNy)
Of its appearance, where the car's exterior appears were full of the strong lines typical design of the 1990s wrapped in a strong carbon fiber material as well, which dramatically changed the look of Lamborghini's flagship car in the time.
Rear three-quarter of 1998 Lamborghini 132 'Diablo' GT1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36A9BVM)
Then the interior is also very different from the standard version due to it has been equipped with a custom pedal box, open shifters and of course, all the buttons, compact switches, and bucket seats, even the roll cages are present in it. Just like what we can expect from the best race car ever.
The car's powertrain is a 6.0 liter V12 naturally aspirated engine capable of producing power of up to 655 horsepower. So that not only from the appearance and performance of this car will be recognized but also from the sound. How fierce this Yellow Devil roaring was, can You hear it! Are you wanna see the Strosek, another unique Diablo variant! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | UPOST | LOVE CARS | FIA HISTORIC DATABASE]

An exclusive Enzo-based supercar of Gemballa

When the prancing horse logoed premium car manufacturer launched the Ferrari Enzo ranging from 2002 to 2004 in a limited number of only 400 units worldwide. So you can imagine how rare the supercar was. Made many exotic car enthusiasts are forced to be disappointed because they cannot have it. Have You ever seen those supercars? What are the shortcomings of those supercars?
2010 Gemballa MIG-U1, an exclusive Ferrari Enzo-based supercar. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2pSuWJB)
Yes, this supercar has a cool shape coupled with excellency performance, so for ordinary people like us seem these supercars have no shortcomings. But not for Mustafa and Ilyas Galadari, two businessmen who run several supercar businesses in Dubai when contacting the Gemballa, a German automotive tuner company to built fresh new supercars based on the Ferrari Enzo back in 2009. 
Side view of Gemballa MIG-U1 looks similar to the Maserati MC-12. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2pSuWJB)
That's why the supercar's name is Gemballa MIG-U1 due to the 'MIG' abbreviation was taken from the names of two brothers Dubai businessmen mentioned above who had commissioned the making of this supercar. While 'U1' is an abbreviation to commemorate the founder of those German tuner company, Uwe Gemballa.
Interior view of Gemballa MIG-U1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36HrXEj)
It seems, at the time they wanted a very exclusive supercar figure that only a few people could have it. As quoted by Motor1, these supercars have made in limited numbers, only 25 units worldwide. And the company promises that no two of the 25 planned MIG-U1 production models will be exactly the same.
The V12 engine view of Gemballa MIG-U1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36HrXEj)
Is it a one-off, or a limited edition? Only time will tell if the Gemballa MIG-U1 will be sold on the open market. But so far that we could be seen and knew about this supercar, there's only one was diligently seen in the world's automotive expos or events, namely the figure of a white-colored MIG-U1 that's usually used a Dubai' number plate.
Rearview of Gemballa MIG-U1 with its doors open. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2pSuWJB)
It is said also that the car is powered by a 6-liter V12 engine capable of producing power up to 700 horsepower. It has also been engineered to perform at extreme speeds with excellent and high performance. With higher aerodynamics, it provides efficiency and flexibility to adapt to changes in external elements when the car reaches various speeds.

The entire body has been completely reworked from front to rear, improving aerodynamics and giving the Enzo a certain race car/spaceship-like appearance. Starting from the front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, new unique rear wing, to the design of a completely new muffler is not just a new tailpipe. At a glance from the side, this supercar looks similar to the Maserati MC-12. And the rear features a huge wing to increase downforce, and a large roof scoop feeds air to the engine.
And for the interior, Gemballa gives a touch of red and black theme, the seats and trim are covered in quilted red leather and it resembles a luxury car more than a 200+ mph supercar. And on its black bucket seat, there was a red embroidered Uwe Gemballa's signature. But some parts still reflect the feel of sportiness with the steering wheel, dashboard and shift knob made of carbon fiber.

The price is only available upon request, but after taking a look around, we found Ferrari Enzos at a price range of US $1.1-1.8 million. Of course, those weren’t tuned by Gemballa. Wanna see another Enzo-based supercar called Lavazza GTX-R or the newest Gemballa-owned supercar. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WIKIPEDIA | MOTOR1 | TOPSPEED | AUTOMOBLOG]

Jaguar electric-powered supercar ready to compete in the Gran Turismo Sport arena

Jaguar follows in the footsteps of other world automotive manufacturers such as McLaren to Chevrolet which has developed virtual concept cars for the Gran Turismo video game under the Vision Gran Turismo brand. This time involving the Jaguar Coupe which was launched at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupe became an electric sports car that will be available for download at the Gran Turismo Sports on the Sony PlayStation platform.

The appearance of this concept car looks futuristic, and Jaguar claims the Vision Gran Turismo Coupe's exterior design was inspired by two of its iconic racing cars from the 1950s namely Type-C and Type-D. However, the active rear wing of the car becomes a truly modern touch.

Likewise, the interior sector augmented reality glass features that can show information about the outside world and warn drivers about obstacles. This virtual concept car also has an AI assistant called KITT-E and a 3D image display. Jaguar actually works on 3D technology for production cars, even though it's not quite ready for prime time in public.

"This project has been fully led by our young designers and represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them to create vehicles that are full of our extraordinary heritage but push the boundaries of future design. The team has done an extraordinary job in creating something that can clearly be identified as Jaguar, inspired - but not limited - by our iconic past," said Jaguar Design Director, Julian Thomson.
Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupe was inspired by its iconic models like the C-Type and D-Type. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/31RWb3J)
Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupe may not be a real car, but Jaguar has engineered it virtually. The car has a perfect front compared to the distribution of rear weight with a percentage of 50:50 and weighs 1.4 tons. Of course, this is not a heavy car, for a car that carries around a heavy battery. Jaguar said its Formula E racing team had a hand in designing the powertrain, which consisted of three electric motors. One motor powers the front wheels, while the other two power each one rear wheel, giving the car an all-wheel drive.
 Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupe was driven by 3 electric motors. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/31RWb3J)
Those three electric motors together drove the cars forward with power up to 1,005 horsepower and 1,199 Nm of torque. Jaguar claims the Vision Gran Turismo Coupe concept will accelerate from zero to 62 mph in less than 2.0 seconds, and reach a top speed of more than 200 mph. Like other real-existed electric supercars, it is expected to enter production over the next few years, such as the Tesla Roadster and Lotus Evija. But the performance claims of Tesla and Lotus remain like that because there has not been a car with powerful engine power.
Jaguar itself does not plan to incorporate the concept of the Vision Gran Turismo Coupe into its production line. And this sleek sports car was designed solely for the Gran Turismo Sport. But given Jaguar's current involvement in Formula E, as well as the secondary race series for the I-Pace electric SUV, it won't be surprising to see a more sporty electric Jaguar appear in the future based on this concept car. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | JAGUAR | GRANTURISMO | DIGITAL TRENDS]

The newest V12-engined Lamborghini beast ready in 2020

As if not yet satisfied after launching the enthralling figure of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 in Frankfurt some time ago, and the Italian supercar manufacturer re-launched a teaser that made the world's fast car enthusiasts feel curious again.  
A teaser image of the newest V12-engine Lamborghini track-only hypercar. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/34htG10)
Yes, ahead of the final of the Lamborghini One-Make Series at the Jerez Circuit, Spain, which will be held this weekend, again Lamborghini is showing off its latest hypercar teaser planned to be released in 2020. 

It was also stated that this hypercar was the first car developed by the company's racing division, the Lamborghini Squadra Corse. But until now the raging bull logoed manufacturer has not yet given the name of its latest racing track-only hypercar. 

Reportedly, the hypercar will be equipped with a V12 6,500 cc Naturally Aspirated (N/A) engine that is capable of spraying power up to 830 hp. The hypercar will also be equipped with an innovative differential lock that can be adjusted by the driver to optimize the car's control depending on the circuit or asphalt conditions. 

From this teaser, we can see a little appearance of the hypercar. Where seen the most prominent parts include a large-sized rear wing, a single airscoop attached on the roof, and large double air intake holes in the hood. The '63' graphics on the body are similar to those of the Aventador SVJ 63 and denote Lamborghini’s year of birth – 1963.
Furthermore, there is also information that says that the structure of this car is made from a mixture of aluminum material on the frame and carbon fiber for the monocoque and the car will be launched next year. The company also plans will be produced in limited numbers (only 40 units) and customer deliveries are slated to commence in 2021. Aside from its mysterious name, so does the same of its price. Lamborghini still hasn't leaked it yet. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LAMBORGHINI | MOTOR1 | AUTOEVOLUTION]

The fastest Bugatti hypercar ever built has been arrived

Not long after successfully launching its masterpiece Bugatti Centodieci at the Pebble Beach automotive event, the Molsheim-based supercar manufacturer launched its newest supercar. The car was made based on a prototype that has been managed to break the speed record of 304.7 mph (490.48 kph) while on speeding at the Volkswagen Group's Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany last August 2, 2019, drove by Bugatti's test driver Andi Wallace.
The fastest Bugatti hypercar ever built called Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ with its speed record of 304.7 mph (490.48 kph). (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2pr4OFj)
As quoted from the Bugatti media page, this super-fast car was given the name Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ and produced in order to enliven the 110th anniversary of the company. Then the car was also produced in a limited amount, which is only 30 units. This production version of the supercar will use the same engine as its prototype model, namely an 8.0L quad-turbo W16 engine nicknamed 'Thor,' which is claimed to be able to burst power up to 1,578 hp.

The latest Chiron derivative looks almost identical to the prototype model which also uses the same carbon fiber material with bright orange line accents across in the middle, similar to the Veyron Super Sport. There are also circular air vents at the top of the two front wheel arches, similar to the Veyron Super Sport. The front end is dominated by a dark horseshoe grill and an aggressive air intake which makes the ordinary Chiron look more docile.

But on the back, it looks different which is said to provide significant visual and aerodynamic changes. Where the rear decklid is made slightly longer than the Chiron standard and now allows customers to design the shape of the hood as they desire (bespoke). This car is also touted as the fastest car ever produced by Bugatti to date.

In addition, there is a new appearance of the placement of four exhaust holes that are stacked vertically which is also applied to the Bugatti Centodieci. The only visual difference that stands out the most between the prototype and the production model is the black rims that adorn its four wheels.

The figure of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ has been exhibited at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019 with racing seats and prototype safety cage. In addition, the vehicle height from the road surface is also returned to standard conditions so it's worth using on the highway.
Furthermore, the supercar comes with an electronic speed limiter, but the French manufacturer has not yet decided what the highest speed will be limited. It was also reported that consumers might have the opportunity to eliminate the speed limit by adding a safety cage. Even car owners have access to test their cars on the VW Group's Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany.

Besides being produced in limited quantities, this super-fast car also has a pretty fantastic selling price of around €3.5 million (the US $3.9 million or approx Rp.72 billion). So only those with thick pockets with the millionaire labels can buy it. Are you interested to have it? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BUGATTI | MOTOR1 | AUTOCAR]
