  • First McLaren Senna in the United States

    The U.S. often gets downgraded versions of high-performance cars. Be it the 5-mph impact bumpers of the 1970s or down-powered engines forced to meet emissions regulations, we are sometimes left jealous of the European versions of certain cars. Today is a different day, though, because this time the U.S. gets the good one. The US-spec McLaren Senna is louder than the version sold in Europe. Louder is better, at least when you're talking about a 789-horsepower British-born hyper exotic. The Senna's noise arrives thanks to a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, which routes its bark through an...

  • Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro
    Aston Martin likely to race Valkyrie successor at Le Mans

    Aston Martin is more likely to race the successor to its Valkyrie and not the Valkyrie itself in the so-called Hypercar class (a name is yet to be selected) that will replace LMP1 as the premier class of the World Endurance Championship, and thus the 24 Hours of Le Mans as well.

    Tourist racks up $47,000 in speeding fines with rented Lambo

    Residents of Modena, Italy are used to seeing supercars testing on local roads, but they've probably never seen one sporting the logo of Ares. That won't be the case for much longer as the coachbuilder and tuner formed by ex-Lotus CEO Dany Bahar has started road tests of a new model called the Panther on the streets surrounding its Modena headquarters.

    It might seem odd that Aston Martin chose to go with the relatively old-school choice of a big V-12 for its Valkyrie hypercar at a time when rivals are downsizing to turbocharged V-8s and even V-6s. Recall, Mercedes-AMG's Project One packs a 1.6-liter turbocharged V-6, albeit one nicked from the...

  • 2006 Dodge Viper ASC Diamondback

    The one-off 2006 Dodge Viper ASC Diamondback has surfaced for sale again. The last time was almost 10 years ago, and since then the car's odometer registers just 19 extra miles.

    First details on Aston Martin DBS Superleggera AMR
