Vector W8 for sale in Japan. One of 19 produced in the early 1990’s with a twin turbo 6 litre Rodeck block Chevy V8 and carbon fibre body. Cabin adjustable boost meant you could have power starting at 650HP on low boost up to 1200HP @ 14psi high boost.
of all time? i can narrow it down to a shortish list, for early supercars its a tough call cause they both wear a Ferrari badge, the Ferrari F40 and Ferrari Testarossa, aside from the Lamborghini Countach imo these cars were the pinnacle of 80′s boxy style for these kinds of cars. they’re straight out of a synthwave album, both had pop up lights which always look good to me and both sounded so good.
the side intakes on the Testarossa are so wild too, it’s such a wide car when you account for the rear wheels’ wheel base being further apart than the front.
As for hypercars i’ve been taken away by the Mclaren P1, it’s damn near 1000 HP with it’s hybrid twin turbo V8 and and looks so sinister. it just makes me so excited for the future of hypercars as it and both the LaFerrari and 918 reassure everyone that a hybrid future is going to be more than ok.
yknow what this list is gonna be pretty long if i just start to say my fav from each group of vehicles so i’ll just leave it at this for now
McLaren Automotive has released details of the new McLaren 570GT by MSO Concept ahead of its debut on the famed 18th fairway of Pebble Beach golf course at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the world’s highest-profile competitive display of collector’s cars. The McLaren 570GT by MSO Concept will be displayed on the concept lawn where previously McLaren has displayed many of its concept and future models.
The 570GT is fitted with the McLaren-developed 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 M838TE engine. Power and torque output is 570PS (562bhp) and 600 Nm (443lb ft) respectively and power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission with adjustment through Normal, Sport and Track settings to produce one of the most rewarding and engaging driving experiences in the sports car class.
This delivers breathtaking performance more commonly seen in the supercar segment: 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 9.8 seconds, with a top speed of 328 km/h (204 mph). Despite supercar performance figures, there have been no sacrifices to the everyday drivability and practicality of the 570GT which returns 26.6 mpg (10.7 l/100 km).
