Much has been learnt from the BC meaning that the Roadster is more powerful, lighter and faster than the Coupe.
So obviously, as is the way with the Supercar ecosystem, Lamborghini had to bring out a more powerful S version of their big V12.
Ferrari has, out the blue, announced a limited run car celebrating 50 years of selling cars in the Japan. Based on a 488 Spider this J50 is more than a special paint job and some seat embroidery, it’s a whole different animal.
Feathered Throttle were offered an Audi R8 for the morning this last weekend by our friends at Prestige Marques, all…
So, you have some spare cash lying around and you really like the already limited Ferrari 458 Speciale. I mean, what’s not to love, 4.5 litre V8 track ready beast that will devour most supercars on the track, and well on the road too. It is limited, so the chances of your neighbour having one is rather slim too. Remember that scene from Gone in 60 seconds:
We understand that most supercars aren’t actually that special, and that a little modification here or there will actually add to the cars uniqueness, but we also understand what has gone into the Huayra and for that reason alone, this is one supercar that should never be modified.
To get the car to it’s predicated 270mph (435km/h) top speed, you have to engage what they like to call, “Predator Mode” – Enough said!
Turn up the sound, in fact get a pair of headphones and the turn it up, the “WHOOOOOSHING” of the dump valves and that beautiful V8 make for a spin tingling soundtrack.
Finally, the age old argument that could never be answered in any pub even with modern day technology and the typical “just google it” has finally been solved by the Top Gear Festival guys.
Which is faster around a track? A supercar, superbike or a F1 car?
