And now the Maserati MC20, that's the name of the new Maserati supercar which has made its world debut in Modena on September 9, 2020 at the MMXX: Time to be Audacious event. The MC20 nomenclature is a code. MC refers to Maserati Corse and 20 for 2020, as the world premiere and the start of a new era.
Maserati MC20 has a butterfly-style door which is not only beautiful, but also functional as it increases the ergonomics of the vehicle. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3mjQDdY)
The Maserati MC20 supercar was designed in Modena and built at the Viale Ciro Menotti factory. This factory has a painting facility that combines innovative and environmentally friendly technologies. This car has a butterfly-style door which is not only beautiful, but also functional as it increases the ergonomics of the vehicle that optimizes access in or out of the car's cabin.
Simple cabin shape with few sharp angles and minimal distraction. Inside, two 10-inch screens are installed, one for the cockpit and one for the Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC Plus MIA). (Picture from: https://bit.ly/35DYOvF)
The car's body aerodynamic engineering was designed over more than 2,000 hours of work in the Dallara Wind Tunnel, including more than a thousand CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations, which led to the creation of exclusive works of art. As a result, the car has a sleek body line, without any other additions, only a rear spoiler which increases downforce. The coefficient is below 0.38.
Once inside the interior, the driver will be in the middle and ready to experience a sporty driving experience. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3mjQDdY)
Once inside the interior, the driver will be in the middle and ready to experience a sporty driving experience. Each component has its function, which is completely driver-oriented. Simple cabin shape with few sharp angles and minimal distraction. Inside, two 10-inch screens are installed, one for the cockpit and one for the Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC Plus MIA).

The simplicity brought by Maserati in creating the center console wrapped in carbon fiber. Installed features a wireless smartphone charger, a driving mode selector knob (GT, Wet, Sport, Corsa and ESC Off, which disables the control function), two speed selection buttons, power window controls, multimedia device controls and a handy storage compartment under the armrest.
Maserati MC20 makes extensive use of carbonfibre and other lightweight materials, resulting in a claimed kerb weight of less than 1500kg. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3mjQDdY)
The new Maserati MC20 will always be connected to the Maserati Connect program where a full range of services including navigation connection, Alexa and Wifi Hotspot can be managed through the Maserati Connect smartphone application or the smartwatch application. In addition, Maserati has also developed six new colors that characterize the MC20, namely Bianco Audace, Giallo Genio, Rosso Vincente, Blu Infinito, Nero Enigma and Grigio Mistero. Each of them is designed and developed exclusively for this car.
Power is delivered to the rear wheels though an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and a self-locking mechanical limited-slip differential at the rear. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3mjQDdY)
The Maserati MC20 supercar uses the latest Nettuno engine with a V6 configuration with a torque of 621 hp and a peak torque of 730 Nm. All this power is channeled into the 8 gears DCT Gearbox transmission. This car is claimed to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in less than 2.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of more than 325 kph.
Furthermore, the Maserati MC20 has a total weight of below 1,500 kg, while the ratio of weight to power reaches 2.33 kg/hp. This is achieved through the use of quality materials and taking advantage of the benefits of carbon fiber without sacrificing comfort. On the other hand, the Nettuno is the first machine in a new chapter in the history of the Italian's trident logoed manufacturer, which is a twin turbo V6 engine for the MC20. The combustion system already has international patents. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR INDIA]

The most powerful Aston Martin ever made

Maybe lately the emergence of a new supercar species is rarely heard of, but some time ago Aston Martin through Q, the special modification division of this British manufacturer got a big project from one of the richest consumers in the world. And for that mysterious customer, Q made the world's most powerful one and only Aston Martin. Well. in the hands of this special division, the Aston Martin cars are made more special to suit the special needs of consumers.
The Aston Martin Victor is a modern re-imagining of the original Aston Martin Vantage V8 from the late-1970s and 1980s. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2RsNdHn)
Recently, the British company announced that Q has completed a special project which resulted in a new supercar named Aston Martin Victor. As rumors, we've been heard, that Aston Martin is working on the car on the special order of a loyal Aston Martin customer from Belgium. And Victor is not the name of the car owner. Instead, it was taken of the name Victor Gauntlett, and for Aston Martin, he was a special figure who managed to save the British premium brand from bankruptcy.
Aston Martin Victor a one-of-one retro supercar uses 847 horses V12 coupled with manual transmission. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3mg9nLp)
As mentioned earlier, this car is the most powerful car ever made by Aston Martin. The total power reaches 836 horsepower and the peak engine torque can reach 821 nm. To achieve that much power, Q did not do what Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren did, by installing induction power from other sources such as electric motors. However, they still use the conventional V12 engine.

And this machine has also been embedded in other great Aston Martin cars, such as the Aston Martin One-77. Under the hood of this hypercar lays a V12 engine with a 7.3-liter cylinder capacity without turbo and other power induction. Originally the engine was only capable of producing 750 horsepower and a maximum torque of 722 Nm.
Aston Martin Victor has interior material that is actually a super-premium blend, while the ceiling is made of cashmere leather, while the seats to the dashboard are specially made by Q of genuine leather. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/32o678E)
And to achieve an output of 836 horsepower and a maximum torque of 821 Nm, the Q division has made collaboration with another big name company, namely Cosworth, one of the world's great and the most successful car engine suppliers. From this collaboration succeeded in making Aston Martin Victor becoming the most powerful Aston Martin car ever made. Literally, it is the only one because Aston Martin only made one Aston Martin Victor.

Not only special in terms of power, but the car appearance also very interesting so no wonder if it could be made your eyes no-blink for a moment. It has a very unusual design, not like as we've been seen on the various Aston Martin cars used by James Bond in every his actions. The unusual design is even reminiscent of the typical American muscle car design, the Ford Mustang. It is characterized by a strong nose and a muscular stern. In fact, the design imitates the design of the previous Aston Martin car.
Aston Martin Victor has an unusual design that is even reminiscent of the typical American muscle car design, the Ford Mustang. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2ZADvax)
To be exact, the Aston Martin Vantage design in the 1970s. At that time, the 1970 Aston Martin Vantage was the first Aston Martin to be called a supercar because of its power which reached 390 horsepower. The maximum speed reaches 270 kilometers per hour. Because the design is reminiscent of the Ford Mustang, at that time the Aston Martin Vantage 1970 was called the British Muscle Car.

Those elements are what the Aston Martin Victor tries to restore. The nose of this car is so big and solid. Likewise, the back is very strong. Even though it looks solid, Aston Martin actually uses carbon fiber in the car. Including the carbon fiber chassis that is already on the Aston Martin One-77.
Now in the interior, Aston Martin Victor actually looks simple. There is no large touch screen like other expensive cars. This car only relies on two touch screens which are quite moderate. It's just that, the technology system has already applied the most advanced technology like in the Aston Martin DBX SUV. However, the interior material is actually a super-premium blend. The ceiling is made of cashmere leather, while the seats to the dashboard are specially made by Q of genuine leather. Walnut wood is also visible on the Aston Martin Victor's six-speed manual transmission lever.

There are indeed several carbon fiber elements in the interior. It's just that the element is not so dominant. Aston Martin Victor is actually rich with a combination of walnut wood elements, titanium, and aluminum. This is what makes the interior of the car feel special, even though it's not crammed with magic buttons. Not because you can't, it could be that the special customer of Aston Martin who ordered the car was prioritizing quality over appearance. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARMAGAZINE.CO.UK | AUTOCAR.CO.UK | ROBBREPORT.COM]

Two exotic Lamborghini concepts on the paper

The glitz of technological advances in the automotive world today is truly amazing, especially when talking about cars that are deliberately created as super rides. Besides having an extraordinary performance, the super rides also have shapes that can be said to be beautiful and exotic. It is not surprising that many people are fascinated by its beauty.

When we talk about the super vehicle forms, of course, it cannot be separated from the skilled hands of many automotive designers, engineers, and technicians. They work skillfully in designing and making these extraordinary-formed super rides so that they can blend seamlessly with their fierce performance on the road and on the racing circuit.

Of the many premium automotive brands which made supercars, one of them is the famous raging-bull logoed Italian company, Automobili Lamborghini. The company founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963 has been known to have so many exotic vehicle models that have always been the target of being used as valuable and prestigious collections among the world's deep-pocketed automotive enthusiasts.
The 2009 Lamborgini Insecta concept is the real Lambo figure inspired by the marriage of a raging bull with a scary-looking insect. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3k7gvYI)
However, the supercar concept that will be discussed below is only the concepts made on paper by several talented young designers and never brought by the raging bull logoed Italian manufacturer into reality. These two Lamborghini imaginary supercar concepts are made in 2009 and 2014 by two young talented independent automotive designers from Romania and Bosnia & Herzegovina. Let's take a look at them both below;

1. Lamborghini Insecta Concept
The first supercar concept is called the Lamborghini Insecta Concept which was created by a Romanian designer named Iulian Bumbu in 2009. He received a Master Diploma in Car Design from Scuola Politecnica di Design Milano in 2007-2008, and a degree from the National University of Art Bucharest–Product Design Department in 2004. And the designer is known to have trained at the Alfa Romeo's styling department.
The Lamborgini Insecta Concept car is created by Iulian Bumbu in 2009. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3hgSuwm)
As quoted from Top Gear, by the name, the designer clearly abandoned the distinctive Lambo's bull-related by taking the insects for inspiration. Furthermore, it also can be seen on the concept appearance which takes its design cues from the little creatures' exoskeletons. Its looks combined the insect' armored shell with the familiar Lambo geometric angles to create a pretty fierce-looking interpretation of the future Gallardo supercar.
The Lamborgini Insecta Concept car is is a two-seater, mid-engined supercar concept measure up in size to the current LP560-4 has been designed also to power up the same 552hp from its 5.2-liter V10 powertrain. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3m8TDtB)
Turn out, the two-seater, mid-engined supercar concept measure up in size to the current LP560-4 has been designed also to power up the same 552hp from its 5.2-liter V10 powertrain in mind. Although this concept was never been realized by the raging bull logoed manufacturer. But from here we can see the real Lambo figure inspired by the marriage of a raging bull with a scary-looking insect.

2. Lamborghini Estampida Concept
It is different from this second supercar concept, whose design was made by a talented designer from Bosnia & Herzegovina named Hrvoje Jelic in 2014. As quoted from Lambocars, this concept design was created by him while studying at the Scuola Politecnica di Design Milano.
The Lamborgini Estampida Concept car is created by Hrvoje Jelic. in 2014. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2R8KenD)
The supercar concept named the Lamborghini Estampida Concept is created in the first semester of 2013-2014 and under the supervision of actual Lamborgini designers. Initially, it called a Super Trofeo race car, and obviously, this is way too advanced for the ST series that will still use the famous V10 engine, or instead, this Estampida looks much more like the LMP1 prototype racing car.
The Lamborgini Estampida Concept car is some kind of a complete package of 1,200hp in a lightweight, carbon fiber, and forged composite supercar. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3bXL6Fj)
So what about the engine, it might not be so farfetched to think Lamborghini's Squadra Corse will put together a V12 Hybrid setup for their LMP1 race car able to pull about 800hp from the V12 engine and add four 100hp electric motors. That's some kind of a complete package of 1,200hp in a lightweight, carbon fiber, and forged composite supercar. This is cool car!! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TOP GEAR | LAMBOCARS]

Tom Meade’s final GT creation in Italy

After some time ago we have discussed the iconic car model made by Tom Meade called it the Thomassima, which in Italian means 'the maximum from Thomas.' The first car is known as Thomassima I completed in 1962, then it was destroyed because swept away by the great flood in Florence in 1966.
1969 Thomassima III 'Lacrima Rossa' is the third model produced by Tom Meade based on a Ferrari 250 GT Coupe. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31LoS4s)
Shortly after that the Thomassima II was built in 1967 and was even more beautiful. It was commissioned to be built by a private owner in Northern California in 1966.

The car was finished by Tom Meade in 1968 and shipped over from Italy. Soon after arriving it was displayed at the 1968 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The Thomasimma II was believed lost since 1971 as it was not seen in public until 2015, subsequently being sold for $9 million or about Rp.121,2 billion!
1969 Thomassima III is the third model produced by Tom Meade and the most famous of his creations now on display at the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Italy. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31LoS4s)
Finally, the Thomassima III 'Lacrima Rossa' as the name implies is the 3rd model produced by Tom Meade in 1969, who put his own interpretation on Ferrari styling in the sixties and seventies. This model is based on a Ferrari 250 GT Coupe and was the most famous of his creations. While the additional name of 'Lacrima Rossa' (means 'Red Tear') was given by Josh Lange, who continues to work toward completion of Tom's last dream car and also a close friend of Tom for the last few years of his life to describe of Tom Meade's last great struggle.
1969 Thomassima III uses a 3-liter V12 Ferrari engine with a power output of 237 hp. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3fSYESA)
It may the best-described interpretation as a front-engined supercar inspired by the legendary 330 P4 sports racing model. It uses a 3-liter V12 Ferrari engine with a power output of 237 hp. The design includes a carbon fiber chassis with seats molded into the tub, much like the Thomassima II. The instruments will be multi-level, multi-functional, and hand made like most of the car's details. An aluminum body to Tom’s careful design will follow the Meade tradition.
1969 Thomassima III has multi-level, multi-functional instruments, and hand made like most of the car's details. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31LoS4s)
At the time, not many people get to build their own cars. Fewer still enlist their coachbuilding help in Modena or use aristocratic 1960s Ferrari components as their foundation. But Tom Meade able to do that, and the swooping style of his Thomassima III is evidence that he had an eye for stunning bodywork.

The Thomassima III created a sensation when exhibited at Italy's automobile manufacturers’ show in Turin. At the time, so many visitors crowd around the place where the Thomassima III was exhibited and made the event organizer was necessary to move the place to accommodate larger crowds surrounding Meade’s creation. Even a diecast model manufacturer, Mattel made the Thomassima III as one of its Hot Wheels collections.
1969 Thomassima III is the third model produced by Tom Meade featured the gull-wing doors as the access into its cabin. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31LoS4s)
Today the Thomassima III is in the protective hands of Meade’s adopted son and is kept in northern Italy. As its sub-300km odometer reading shows, the car has not run in decades, but to see it as it was in period (save for absent exterior mirrors and the different seat color) remains awe-inspiring. Its shape is very much organic, the ultimate rendition of the 1960s front-engined Italian sports car ethos.
Tom Meade passed away in August 2013 aged 74. It was therefore a great shock, in the year that followed, to find out that the Thomassima III was not merely a long-lost dream and actually proper to be displayed in a museum.  Not just any museum, mind you, but the Galleria Ferrari museum in Fiorano, right by the Maranello factory. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THOMASSIMA.COM | DRIVETRIBE.COM | DRIVE-MY.COM]

Delage reborn with all-new stunning supercar

Delage? Is there a car brand like that? Maybe that's the question when you just look at the name. It is not surprising that some automotive enthusiasts currently do not know the brand. Actually, this is one of the French fancy car manufacturer brands and existed since the 1920s up to the 1950s.
Delage D12 hybrid supercar marks the return of the French brand after nearly 70 years of hibernated. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3kEUh1c)
After nearly 70 years the name hibernated and at the Lyon EpoquAuto event held on November 7, 2019, a well-known French businessman, Laurent Tapie announced the French fancy car brand is revived under the name Delage Automobile and said the Delage D12 is the first project and model to be launched soon. Delage is trying to come back by presenting a car that is believed to be welcomed by the world's automotive fans.
A well-known French businessman, Laurent Tapie announced the French finest car brand is revived under the name Delage Automobile. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/33UGKg7)
Why can the company be sure like that? Due to the car presented is a supercar that has a shape resembling a Formula 1 racing car. No half-hearted, they also claimed, it's the fastest hybrid supercar in the world, which is legal to use on the road. Besides that, the French company also mentioned that the former F1 champion, Jacques Villeneuve, and technical director Benoit Bagur, who is a two-time FIA Touring Car World Champion were involved in the development process of its D12 supercar.
Delage D12 hybrid supercar appears with an ultramodern design, that's said a combination of designs inspired by Formula 1 and a fighter jet. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2E1u6km)
At first glance, its appearances remind us of the Caparo T1 which was ever-present in the late 2000s. However, the D12 supercar appears with an ultramodern design, that's said a combination of designs inspired by Formula 1 and a fighter jet, where both was the fastest vehicle in their respective fields with unmatched agility. So there is no need to question how the F1 inspiration elements are applied to this Delage supercar.

On the front, just look at the long, flat muzzle in the middle which is the F1 racing car typical design. Then from the muzzle, it is connected by a tiered front spoiler, where the lower one is flat in design with three blades on the right and left, just like single-seater aerodynamics. Meanwhile, the upper spoiler is connected to the front fender, where its slanted-headlights is attached, to fulfill one of the requirements as a street-legal vehicle.

The muzzle also has a transparent portion, which clearly exposes the suspension components. Then the cockpit is given a greenhouse roof which also covers the cabin. Uniquely, not an ordinary door system but canopy flip-up design opens upward, is used to access the D12 cockpit like the pilot access into a fighter jet cockpit. The same design direction is applied to the driver and passenger seat layout, which is positioned parallel or in tandem, so that the D12 cockpit can only be filled by two people, just like the F-18 and F-35 cockpits.

The two seats in the D12 cockpit uses carbon fiber material to create very lightweight structures. The steering wheel design is also unique, combining design elements of a racing car steering wheel and a jet fighter joystick. Furthermore, on the dashboard in front of the driver, there are three LED monitors. And the company also said the Focal's infotainment system will be installed inside its cabin.
Delage D12 hybrid supercar has a slim body-shaped at the front and the cockpit area extends to the rear, then widening to the rear fender. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/30OXYt8)
The body is slim at the front and the cockpit area extends to the rear. Then the rear fenders widen to accommodate airflow for the engine cooling system. The upper-middle section covered by the glass so the engine compartment could be seen, moving slightly downside there's a large air scoop. And further back, the shape of the D12 increasingly resembles an ordinary fast car that is completely covered.

At first glance, the stern appearance is completely grim with large cavities on the right and left. Then, two exhausts are located in the middle, to allow a large diffuser to be attached at the bottom. On the upper side, attached a large and wide wing. Meanwhile, its all four wheels are seen using the black-colored carbon fiber rims.
Delage D12 hybrid supercar has a unique-shaped steering wheel that combining a racing car steering wheel and a jet fighter joystick design elements. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2E6ucag)
This hybrid-powered supercar was developed in 2 variants, namely the D12 GT and D12 Club. The performance of the D12 GT variant relies on the power from a 7.5 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, which is capable of spraying up to 990 hp and is also supported by an electric motor that provides an additional power of 110 hp, so in total, its generated-power is 1,100 hp. As for the performance of the second variant, it only relies on a drivetrain that is powered by 1,010 hp only but has lighter weight.
Delage D12 hybrid supercar will only be produced as many as 30 units and will be sold at a price of around $ 2.3 million. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2E6ucag)
The D12 GT variant has an empty weight of 1,399.8 kilograms, while the D12 Club which is exclusively for track-focused performance is 1,310 kilograms. By numbers, the D12 Club is 89.8 kilograms lighter than the GT. However, Delage has yet to reveal the acceleration and top speed performance figures of the two variants of the D12 supercar. 
The French automotive company claims that in the near future the D12 supercar will soon break the fastest lap records at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Furthermore, Delage also said that the D12 supercar will only be produced as many as 30 units and will be sold at a price of around $ 2.3 million (Rp.33 billion) per unit.

The real Gordon Murray's T.50 supercar finally revealed

After working in about 18 months since the design was first revealed to the public. Recently on August 4, 2020, Gordon Murray Automotive launched the latest masterpiece named the GMA T.50, a supercar with a V12 engine, and has weighing less than 1,000 kg that is claimed as the to be much better than Gordon Murray's previous creation, the McLaren F1. 
GMA T.50 is said the ultimate analog supercar with weighing less than 1,000 kg recently debuted on August 4, 2020. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2PF1MXt)
As we all knew, Gordon Murray is a key figure who plays an important role in designing various well-known sports and racing cars, such as the Brabham BT46B which is known as the 'Controversial Fan Car', the McLaren MP4/4, the winner of 15 of the 16 races of the F1 Grand Prix of the 1988 season, up to the McLaren F1, the winner of the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours, and many others.
GMA T.50 supercar has a center-positioned driver seat with a dashboard full of buttons and a titanium pedal. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3kxagyi)
Not without reason, GMA T.50 weighs only 980 kg. Yes, that's very impressive for a V12 engined car that produces 654 hp and 467 Nm of torque. Incredible, where every 1 hp of generated-power can carry loads of up to 1.507 kg, aka the power ratio of more than 1: 1! If that's not enough, you can find other interesting details brought back such as the fan system adopted from the Brabham BT46B.
While the GMA T.50's passenger seats were slightly back on the right-left sides of the driver. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3kxagyi)
On the front, the GMA T.50 has a similarity in design to the McLaren F1. Starting from a very low front design with smooth curves, and there are air holes on the side. Then installed a large windshield with a rounded concept, the glass on the large gullwing door, and the clear panel on top gives the impression of relief. Also present are air holes that directly direct the wind to the V12 engine, and the rear panel that can be opened with the gullwing concept like a door also gives access to see the rear suspension and engine.
GMA T.50 supercar uses a 3,994 cc, V12 naturally aspirated Cosworth bespoke engine coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission Xtrac gearbox. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3kxagyi)
The ultimate analog supercar design is obsessed with super-light cars, so GMA applies the use of carbon fiber material for the chassis and body of the T.50 supercar. The maker claims that the monocoque chassis and exterior panels weigh less than 150 kg. In dimensions, the GMA T.50 also has a very compact size, with a length of 4,352 mm, which means this car is one inch shorter than the Porsche 718 Cayman.
GMA T.50 supercar uses a rear-mounted 40 cm sized fan which increases downforce by up to 50% in normal driving mode, and 100% in braking. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2DSesrD)
As mentioned above, one of the most interesting parts of the GMA T.50 is the 40 cm sized fan that is mounted behind the car body. The fan operates using a 48-volt electric motor with a maximum rotation of 7,000 rpm. The GMA T.50 rear fan increases downforce by up to 50% in normal driving mode, and 100% in braking. Not only downforce but this fan also serves to supply air for its rear-engine which ultimately increases the car's power up to 49 horsepower.
Gordon Murray Automotive will start producing its T.50 supercar in January 2022 and made it in limited numbers of only 100 units. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2PF1MXt)
Then what about the engine? The GMA T.50 uses a 3,994 cc, V12 Cosworth bespoke engine which can be driven up to 12,100 rpm with the weight only 177 kg. This Naturally Aspirated engine is then connected to a 6-speed manual transmission Xtrac gearbox to transmit the power to drive the rear wheels.
The interior also looks similar to the McLaren F1's cockpit, where the driver sits in the middle with two passenger seats slightly back on right-left sides of the driver with a dashboard full of buttons and a titanium pedal. Like a racing car, the manufacturer will design the GMA T.50 cabin according to the prospective buyer, where the position of the seat, steering wheel, and pedals are precisely adjusted according to the buyer's request.
It was also stated that Gordon Murray Automobile will start producing this T.50 supercar in January 2022 and made it in limited numbers of only 100 units, then for each unit will be sold at a price of around the US. $3.08 million (or equivalent to Rp.45 billion). Are You interested to have one of these supercars? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GORDON MURRAY AUTOMOTIVE | CARSCOOPS]

The latest Lamborghini's wild bulls made especially only for the racing-track

Shortly after launching the Lamborghini Sián Roadster, the raging bull logoed Italian premium automotive manufacturer was officially launched an exclusive hypercar called the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12. And the latest Lamborghini's hypercar can only be used specifically on the track.
The latest Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 made specifically only for the racing-track and in limited numbers of 40 units only. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3fri5Sf)
As quoted from Carscoops, the premium automotive manufacturer based in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy said that will be produced the Essenza SCV12 in limited numbers, ie 40 units only. As quoted from its official sites, the naturally aspirated V12 engined hypercar is also claimed to be the most powerful ever made with aerodynamic factors that should not be doubted. Understandably this hypercar was designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile and developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse.

The racing version of the CLK GTR took both the drivers' and teams' championships in '97 and '98, winning 17 of the 22 races it entered. After that, those German automotive giants produced the road-legal versions and able to use it on the streets for daily activities.

Power was sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential manual transmission system. It looked mean, with a hooped rear wing and low-slung bodywork fitted with various vents and winglets. The front was also adorned with a Mercedes-Benz hood ornament. So it is not surprising that this car became the fastest in its time.

Wow, of course, I couldn't afford to buy it, because it was too expensive. But it didn't dampen me from owning this car. Then, I go to the supermarket near ma home and bought the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR in there. Although only in a scale of 1:64 but at least I had one. Only kidding, don't take it too seriously. :) *** [EKA[14082018] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | AUTOBLOG]
