    This week, Aston Martin finally showed off the first image of its forthcoming 003 hypercar and the firm's CEO declared it has the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren Senna, and Porsche 918 Spyder directly in its sights. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin CEO, told Auto Express in a Wednesday report that the 003 bridges the gap between the gap between the forthcoming Valkyrie hypercar and a Ferrari 488 competitor that's also on the way from the British brand. In this respect, he said the 003 is a LaFerrari competitor or "like the McLaren Senna and Porsche 918." In the spirit of the LaFerrari, the powertrain...

  • Koenigsegg Agera RS1

    Koenigsegg may have the hardware to compete with heavyweights such as Ferrari or Lamborghini, but the Swedish automaker remains a low-scale operation. In the years to come, that appears set to change. CEO and founder Cristian von Koenigsegg told Bloomberg in a report last Friday that after 2022, he has plans to build thousands of cars per year. The goal would place his company in striking distance of Ferrari and Lamborghini, which both build fewer than 10,000 cars annually today. In the near-term, von Koenigsegg plans to increase production from around a dozen supercars per year to a few...

  • 1991 Acura NSX

    The original Acura NSX has obtained a legendary status among enthusiasts, but it almost went to production without its famed variable valve timing & lift electronic control. Yes, VTEC.
