  • Mysterious Ferrari prototype in Maranello

    It’s not unusual to see Ferrari prototypes rolling around the hills of Maranello as the Italian city is home to the supercar manufacturer’s factory, but every now and then something very unusual crops up and grabs our attention. In this case, a mysterious prototype was captured on film just a few days ago in Maranello, suggesting that a new Ferrari model is taking shape. The prototype appears to be for a new front-engined GT, which suggests that it could be the replacement for either the 599 GTB Fiorano or 612 Scaglietti. Ferrari is currently in the process of renewing its entire lineup...

    Rendered: 2013 Chevrolet Corvette (C7)

    There are all manner of rumors concerning the next-generation C7 Chevrolet Corvette, with stories ranging from the possibility of a mid-engined platform to AWD powertrains and even the arrival of a dual-clutch version.

    The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is one of the world's premier high-end car exhibitions and competitions, and though it's not a car show in the traditional sense, it has been the location for the debut of some of the world's most impressive cars, including the Bentley Mulsanne. Now it looks...

    No GT1 Category For Le Mans Next Year

     Back in the 90s, the GT1 Category had some of the coolest cars racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Unlike the prototype categories, GT1 cars shared styling cues from the manufacturers the cars came from. Even some of the cars, like the Mercedes Benz CLK-GTR, Porsche 911 GT1 or the Nissan R390...

  • Bugatti Veyron

    The Bugatti Veyron is the pinnacle of the 2000 Supercars, it had the most horsepower, was one of the faster top speeds, the largest price tags for a new car, and provided extreme luxury while giving out amazing performance. The best supercar of the 1990s, most people will argue, is the McLaren F1, but gave up luxury for the top-speed record. The Bugatti EB  110, on the other hand, had the fastest top speed when it was released in 1990 with 213 mph, while providing luxury just like the company’s latest model. Motor Trend got hold of the two supercars and decided to compare the two cars and...

    Video: Hennessey Venom GT Lays Down 633 RWHP On The Dyno

    Following in the grandest of American supercar traditions, Hennessey takes a lightweight, fantastic-handling British sports car, modifies it to accept ridiculous amounts of American V-8 power and calls it something aggressive and snake-related: the Venom GT.  Carroll Shelby would be proud. With...

  • Ferrari Enzo

    The term "next-gen" gets bandied about rather haphazardly in the automotive journo biz. It's true that the next generation of a car is "next-gen" in a sense, but it's not usually a "next-gen" set of technologies in the larger sense. The next Enzo, however, will be truly next-gen, as it gets a twin-turbo V-8 and a heavily carbon fiber-based build. Ferrari recently ruled out carbon fiber for all but its highest-end, low-volume cars due to its unsuitability for everyday use. But the Enzo isn't an everyday kind of car. And the next Enzo is doubly so. We've reported as far back as 2007 that...

  • 2012 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti successor test mule spy shots

    It seems like just yesterday that Ferrari's 612 Scaglietti was launched but it's actually been more than five years, which is why it’s not surprising that test-mules for the car’s successor are already running around the streets of Europe. For the latest car, Ferrari will be primarily focused on giving it an edgier, more up-to-the-minute look that will likely be joined by a greener powertrain as well. While this test-mule was previously thought to be for a minor mid-cycle facelift for the 612 Scaglietti, key details such as the extended front-end, bonnet bulge, longer wheelbase...

Despite selling the most cars in the brand's history in 2008, in the wake of the global financial crisis, Lamborghini saw deliveries from January to December 2009 reduced by a staggering 37.7 percent from 2,430 to 1,515 units worldwide...
