  • Ferrari F8 Tributo

    Ferrari on Tuesday pulled the covers off the F8 Tributo at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, the Prancing Horse's newest mid-engine marvel and a celebration of the marque's legendary 8-cylinder lineage. The car is the replacement for the 488 GTB and essentially the same package as the more extreme 488 Pista introduced just last year. In fact, the underpinnings go all the way back to the 458 Italia launched a decade ago. That doesn't make the F8 Tributo any less desirable, however. At its heart is a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 tuned to deliver 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of...

  • Pininfarina Battista

  • Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster

    If the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ coupe is too constricting, the Italian firm has a remedy. On Monday, the Aventador SVJ Roadster arrived ahead of its formal debut at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The Aventador SVJ Roadster brings all of the coupe's power and technologies with the freedom of a droptop roof. Thus, the same 6.5-liter V-12 from the SVJ coupe is on tap with 759 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. The roadster configuration costs little in terms of performance as it sprints from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds, compared to 2.8 seconds for the coupe. The roadster and coupe...

  • Aston Martin Valkyrie

  • 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S

    Those who have the money to afford a Lamborghini likely don't need to shop the used market, but the Italian firm has announced a new certified pre-owned (CPO) program to back such vehicles. Called "Selezione Lamborghini," the CPO program ensures the new owner of a used Lamborghini peace of mind as each vehicle must pass a 150-point inspection of the interior, exterior, mechanicals, and electronics. Work to correct any issues is carried out exclusively by Lamborghini technicians. All of Lamborghinis sports cars and supercars, plus the Urus SUV, are eligible for the program, though they must...

  • Bugatti Chiron test with astronaut Jon A. McBride

    Astronauts handle some of the wildest vehicles mankind has ever built. Naturally, it only makes sense to put a former astronaut in the passenger seat of a Bugatti Chiron to see how it compares. Last Friday, Bugatti did just that when it placed astronaut Jon A. McBride in the passenger seat of the Chiron to get a taste of the supercar's blistering acceleration. The French supercar maker landed in Cape Canaveral at NASA'S Kennedy Space Center in Florida for speed and aerodynamic testing with McBride as part of the team for a day.
