Pagani revealed the one-off Huayra NC with 819 horses

~Real BEAST~ As we all know, one of the premium car manufacturers from Italy, Pagani Automobili is famous for one of its hypercar series products labeled Huayra. Do you know how many variants of the Huayra have been launched by Pagani to this day? There're many, perhaps will be more variants in near future. Well, it seems that they never run out of ideas to continue to exploit these series.😁And recently the manufacturer has revealed the latest hypercar variant of the series, dubbed the Pagani Huayra NC
The one-off Pagani Huayra NC is a private commission created in collaboration between a client and Pagani Special Projects division. (Picture from: MotorAuthority)
Unfortunately, until now there is little information related to this hypercar. For sure the one-off Pagani Huayra NC is a private commission created in collaboration between a client and Pagani Special Projects division and is on display at the open-air celebration of Italy’s supercar prowess titled the 4th Motor Valley Fest 2022 in Moderna’s Piazza Mazzini, which coincidentally is also close to the automaker headquarters in Modena, Italy, as quoted of Hyperbeast on May 22, 2022.

Let's take a look at the exterior, here the Italian manufacturer opted to the car's exterior finishing under a combination of blue carbon fibers, and traditional grey, plus some parts painted red and white. Therefore, most of the body panels are bathed in pretty blue carbon, including the front panels, doors, rear panels, and most of the rear clamshell. While the traditional shades of gray carbon fiber can be found on the hood, side skirts, rear fascia, and taillight covers.
The one-off Pagani Huayra NC's interior has 2 luxurious seats wrapped in blue alcantara, and multifunctional steering wheel with the bottom flat. (Picture from: AlexanderMagazine)
If we look closely, it seems that the Huayra NC is built on the basis of the Huayra BC Roadster, which can be seen from the same unique engine cover complete with large supports behind the headrests. Unlike the standard BC Roadster, however, the Huayra NC also adopts a prominent roof scoop, very similar to that found on the Huayra Imola.
The one-off Pagani Huayra NC is powered by the same AMG twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine as all other road-going Huayra models, but has been upgraded to produce up to 819 hp and 796 lb-ft (1,079 Nm) of torque. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
Then the eye-catching combination of blue, red, white and carbon fiber continues into the Huayra NC's interior. Most of the cabin is clad in royal blue Alcantara, including the seats, headrests and A-pillars. Other interior surfaces have black Alcantara with red contrast stitching, and there's also a blue carbon fiber shift knob.
The one-off Pagani Huayra NC's rear has diffuser, large-sized wings, round taillights, and four ends of the exhaust. (Picture from: MotorAuthority)
The one-off Pagani Huayra NC is powered by the same AMG twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine as all other road-going Huayra models, but has been upgraded to produce up to 819 hp and 796 lb-ft (1,079 Nm) of torque, that's 28 hp and 22 lb-ft more than the standard BC Roadster by 791 hp and 774 lb-ft (1,049 Nm). The engine is combined with a seven-speed sequential transmission system that drives the rear wheels wrapped in Pirelli Trofeo R tires.
As mentioned above, the Pagani Huayra NC is a one-off model built based on a personal commissioned from a client whose identity has not been revealed yet so the pricing and availability details unlikely not revealed. However, this hypercar is definitely more expensive than the standard Huayra is sold starts at $3.4 millions (approx Rp. 49 billions) in the US. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTORAUTHORITY | HYPERBEAST | ID.MOTOR1 | ALEXANDERMAGAZINE ]

A controversial design of Diablo Strosek

~Weird ONE~ Another nice looking of Lamborghini supercars as well as has a controversy design is the Lamborghini Diablo Strosek. List of people who can afford to buy this car a little. However, if you are a member of this list, you might be want to have this car in your garage.
1994 Lamborghini Diablo VT/R Strosek. (Picture from: LamboCars)
This customized car was built by Vittorio Strosek of Strosek Design GmbH & Co. KG by taking the base from 1993 Lamborghini Diablo. Because he found that the original Diablo was too subtle, so he set out to create a more balanced design that he made for some extremely wealthy customers.

Some exterior parts are removed and redesigned. He removed the front and rear bumpers of the Diablo and installed his redesigned units which were much more rounded than the originals, the front turn signal was replaced and the pop-up lights removed and two poly-ellipsoid units installed in their place.
This view clearly shows the difference between the standard Diablo and the one modified by Strosek. (Picture from: LamboCars)
He also removed the original exterior rear view mirrors and installed two altered ones mounted high up on the doors, the rear spoiler being integrated between the rear light clusters, and can be adjusted for more down force when needed.

The side air intakes in the front of the rear wheels were redesigned and the rear bumper now hold two big-bore exhaust pipes. On later models the panel between the rear lights was replaced with a new one using round holes for the rear fog light and the back-up light.

Strosek also installed his special 18-inch magnesium wheels, which was available in chrome when requested by the customer. These wheels uses a five hole design that is similar to the original but were redesigned and looks much cleaner than standard wheels.

While on the car's inside changes remained little, although some cars featured new door panels and racing bucket type seats.
A look along the side of the rare Lamborghini Diablo Strosek. (Picture from: LamboCars)
Originally, this supercar has a massive engine that allows it to hit a top speed of more than 200 mph. I have no information about the engine, but Strosek isn't known to play around with the engine, so it is possible no modifications were made to its massive V12 engine.
Two big exhaust, a nicely integrated rear bumper and some other modifications create a totally different Diablo. (Picture from: LamboCars)
Pricing on these customized Lamborghini supercar wasn't available and also we have never seen any of it for sale, so it is likely that if you find one it will be very expensive. Due to the exclusivity has to be paid here.
Unfortunately, this is impossible to put this customized car in the United States' highway. Yes, these Lamborghini Diablo Strosek is banned in the United States, due to be considerate unsafe while used on the streets by those country authorities. In your opinion what causes the Lamborghini Diablo Strosek not allowed to be used in the United States? *** [EKA [13092018] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LAMBOCARS.COM]

The unique Sbarro Osmos sports car with four hubless orbital wheels

~Unique ONE~ If we talk about something unique and unusual it may be endless. Especially now that we live in an advanced technology era that's full of wonders and surprises. No wonder if it's associated with the automotive world today, there are many unique vehicles creation been born that have never been thought of before.
The Sbarro Osmos sports car with four hubless orbital wheels built by Franco Sbarro and has debuted at the 1989 Geneve Motor Show. (Picture from: Dyler)
Well, maybe the following vehicle can be a perfect example for that. If previously there was a vehicle that carried the hubless wheels concept, usually our minds would automatically contacted to a motorcycle figure. That's natural, because it is a motorcycle that usually carries such a concept. But did you ever know that there was once a creation of four-wheeled vehicles that carried such a concept? Really!
The Sbarro Osmos sports car with four hubless orbital wheels was known to be the first serious attempt to install hubless wheels on a passenger car. (Picture from: Dyler)
Hubless wheel, that's the idea that was presented by an Italian-born Swiss automotive designer named Franco Sbarro whose famous for his love of cars, especially those that look extreme. And through the company he founded in 1971 named Sbarro, he has always strived to create vehicles that stand out in every possible sense.
The Sbarro Osmos sports car's cabin interior appeared in red, equipped with a steering wheel and many buttons has attached on the dashboard. (Picture from: Dyler)
At first Sbarro started producing replicas of various models of Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, etc. but Franco Sbarro then decided to go a step further and started making original and authentic models pleased by many rich eccentric car enthutiats.
The Sbarro hubless orbital wheeled motorcycle built in 1989 before the Sbarro Osmos sports car. (Picture from: Sbarro)
In the 1980s, he came up with the idea for a completely new type of wheel that didn't require a hub, according to him the rim can be limited to the rim itself. After that he made several prototypes of his own wheels, then built a hubless-wheel motorcycle concept in 1989. And at the Geneva Motor Show 1989 he showed the Sbarro Osmos, a phenomenal sports car concept featuring with four hubless orbital wheels.
The Sbarro Osmos sports car with four hubless orbital wheels measures approximately 4.50 m long, 2.10 m wide, 1 m of high, and wheelbase of 2,85 m. (Picture from: Dyler)
This unique 1,150 kg weighted sports car measures approximately 4.50 m long, 2.10 m wide, 1 m of high and wheelbase of 2,85 m. It is powered by a Jaguar V12 mid-mounted engine capable of producing around 300 hp of power with a unique exhaust channeling system. Reportedly this Sbarro sports car takes less than five seconds to accelerate from rest to one hundred kilometers per hour. In addition, the Sbarro Osmos is also equipped with butterfly-style doors like most of the world's famous premium brand sports cars at the time.

But the most outstanding feature of this car is of course its four hubless orbital wheels. When Franco Sbarro decided to make hubless wheels, it wasn't just because he wanted to make his dream come true. As we all know this type of wheel has been widely used for various motorcycles, but did you know this was the first serious attempt to install hubless wheels on a passenger car, and Sbarro felt challenged to make it happen.

Of course, it doesn't end with the wheels themselves, Sbarro also has to solve the problem of the transmitting drive to them. The wheel rim consists of two rings connected by a chain or "axle" with very small bearings, placed as close to the road surface as possible. Of course, this should significantly lower the vehicle's center of gravity, reduce unsprung mass and facilitate cooling of the brakes, and thus improve handling.

However, at the same time, it requires high precision, durability and expensive materials, which ultimately complicates the production process. So the innovation of hubless wheels did not succeed in attracting the interest of larger car manufacturers, and the concept introduced in 1989 remained as it was, due to the complex and expensive use and manufacture it.
In the early 1990s, Franco Sbarro sold all his shares to Dominique Mottas, and the hubless wheel innovations such as the Osmos continued to develop for the next few years. Therefore it was then used in a series of prototypes of cars and motorbikes (BMW, Toyota Neo Cosmic Voyager, Metzer Monocorps, Fouquereau Orchide, Thunder Cycle), then it disappeared for a moment. 
And the hubless wheel concept similar to the Osmos appeared again in a concept called the Sbarro Orbital Hybrid shown at the 2009 Geneve Motor Show. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SBARRO | DYLER | AUTOGEN.PL ]

The Heldo small custom sportscars never been made into production

~Compact SPORTS~ We just got an old concept car that has a quite unique shape when traveling in cyberspace. We felt like we had never seen it before, and according to the information we got, that it was Heldo, short for 'Heldorado'. Strangely enough, isn't? It sounds like Eldorado.
The AAT Heldorado is a prototype compact-sized (in pictured coupe style) built for design studies around a Cadillac Northstar done  by Advanced Automotive Technologies (AAT). (Picture from: ConceptCarz)
As we can see it is a prototype compact-sized sportscar built for design studies around a Cadillac Northstar powertrain called Heldo or Heldorado by Advanced Automotive Technologies (AAT), an American design and specialist prototype company back in 2000. This company based in Rochester Hills, Michigan founded by Steve Pasteiner (a former Buick and Chevrolet designer) after he left the GM in 1989, nowaday seems to be inactive.
The AAT Heldorado (in pictured coupe style) has a carbon composite bodywork built based on steel-tube space frame. (Picture from: AdvancedAutomotiveTechnologies)
The carbon composite bodywork of the 2,200 lbs (997.903 kg) sportscar is built on steel-tube space frame, as the result finished vehicle has the size approximately similar to the MINI 3-Doors model (with 3,876 mm long, 1,727 mm wide, 1,414 mm high and a wheelbase of 2,495 mm), that's a fairly small overall package of sportscar.
The AAT Heldorado has the size approximately similar to the MINI 3-Doors model (with 3,876 mm long, 1,727 mm wide, 1,414 mm high and a wheelbase of 2,495 mm), that's a fairly small overall package of sportscar. (Picture from: MotorAuthority)
No wonder when it showcased at the Woodward Dream Cruise 2008 event, along with many of small custom sportscars out there, this AAT Heldo sportscar has drawn a lot of attention as an example of some of the quirky and occasionally bizarre results of those companies' machinations.
Only two cars were ever created by Advanced Automotive Technologies (AAT), one coupe and other was convertible roadster such in the picture. (Picture from: MotorAuthority)
Then the compact-sized sportscar prototype was powered by a transverse, rear mid-mounted Cadillac Northstar Polaris 4,565 cc DOHC V8 engine offering 350 horsepower, so that it can accelerate from rest to 100 kph in just 4.2 seconds and reach a distance of approximately a quarter mile (0.402 km) in 12.2 seconds. That's a pretty impressive number for a compact-sized sportscar.
Inside the cabin, there's race-style seats with harnesses, a tall centrally-mounted tachometer, very closely-spaced pedals, Momo steering wheel and an otherwise spartan cockpit combine to give a distinct race-oriented car. (Picture from: MotorAuthority)
Only two cars were ever created, one coupe and other was convertible roadster. The coupe is still on the road today known belong to its creator, Steve Pasteiner, but the convertible/roadster was never fully commissioned. The compact-sized sportscar sharing similar styling to the 1990s German sports car the Lotec C1000, which was a one-off supercar created in 1995 for an oil baron in the UAE by Lotec.
The AAT Heldorado (in pictured roadster style) is powered by a transverse, rear mid-mounted Cadillac Northstar Polaris 4,565 cc DOHC V8 engine offering 350 horsepower. (Picture from: MotorAuthority)
And in particular the appearance of this car at first glance reminds us of the design proposal for the Bugatti EB110 submitted by Paulo Martin to Bugatti back in 1989. As You can see the pull of the design line on the side to bring up the hanging spoiler shapes at rear looks similar to the one on the Heldo.

Meanwhile inside its cabin, there's race-style seats with harnesses, a tall centrally-mounted tachometer, very closely-spaced pedals, Momo steering wheel and an otherwise spartan cockpit combine to give a distinct race-oriented car. Unfortunetely, there's no word about production or price tags, therefore the AAT Heldo stopped at this point only a concept. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGIES | CONCEPTCARZ | MOTORAUTHORITY | CLASSICANDRECREATIONSPORTSCARS | CARTEFACTS ]

Ferrari prepared a customer-commissioned one-off supercar model

~NEW Steed~ Ferrari is reportedly would launched a new model called the Ferrari SP48 Unica to the global automotive market this year. The new car is claimed to have a base that is not much different from the Ferrrari F8 Tributo supercar.
Ferrari has unveiled the SP48 Unica, the latest addition to its portfolio of customer-commissioned one-off models. (Picture from: Autoblog)
However, this Ferrari SP48 Unica comes with a body that has been redesigned more larger. The new car is known to offer a completely new and different front fascia compared to the F8 Tributo supercar.
The Ferrari SP48 Unica based on the F8 Tributo, and the coupe was created by the Ferrari Styling Center for an anonymous client who participated in every step of the design process. (Picture from: Autoblog)
The Maranello-based premium autocar says the front fascia has been designed by by the Ferrari Styling Center under the command of Chief Design Officer Flavio Manzoni, by using procedural-parametric modeling technology and 3D prototyping. So the SP48 Unica is claimed to have a tridimensional effect on the front grille. This addition makes the Italian supercar look fresher than the Ferrari F8 Tributo
The Ferrari SP48 Unica also featured with specially blacked-out a-pillars create the illusion of a wrap-around windshield. (Picture from: Autoblog)
Furthermore, the new car looks visually slimmer after the windows were removed and the taillights were replaced with thin LED bars. Not only the body, but additional design changes are also embedded in the wheels. In addition, the Ferrari SP48 Unica will have side air intakes that look lower. And plus this supercar will also use black accents on the side skirts.
The Ferrari SP48 Unica features new-look lights, a reshaped bumper with honeycomb-like inserts, and twin vents. (Picture from: Autoblog)
But so far the Italian prancing horse auto breeder has not revealed the interior of the SP48 Unica. It is thought the cabin will be heavily influenced by the F8 Tributo, and the design is expected to gain special badges on the exterior and inside the cabin.
The Ferrari SP48 Unica might be powered by the same engine of its predecessor F8 Tributo, a a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. (Picture from: Autoblog)
Beside that Ferrari also did not talk much about the engine used for its new car. However, Autoblog predicts the car will carry the same drivetrain as the F8 Tributo, which is a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine.
This kind of engine is capable of spewing out power of 710 hp and peak torque of up to 770 Nm. So the Ferrari SP48 Unica is expected to have a top speed of 340 kph and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 2.9 seconds. And besides that, the Italian Prancing Horse manufacturer also also didn't mention the identity of the SF48 Unica's owner and how much it cost. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FERRARI | AUTOBLOG ]
