Catch up on all the latest supercar news right here.
Here at CarBuzz we have a thing for supercars. Can you blame us? These cars are the studs of the industry and we report on them as such. We see a lot of awesome supercar news every week and we know that these stories can be hard to keep track of. That’s why we’ve decided to create a weekly roundup of the top supercar stories from the past seven days. If you want to know about leaked Porsche 918 parts pricing or what the Lamborghini Centenario sounds like, continue below.
South Korean design student Youngjai Jun might have given Lamborghini something to think about with this, the Lamborghini Missile concept. This rendering is an alternative of sorts to the Centenario as both cars were designed with founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday in mind. Of course the Missile is just a bit too crazy to ever see the real world, even as a track-only supercar. That being said it’s still damn gorgeous and is definitely worthy of a look (or two).
Nissan made news last week when it shared some tasty information about its presence at the 2016 New York Auto Show. The Japanese automaker released a teaser image of the Nissan GT-R, announcing that it was bringing a new version of its iconic supercar to the show. Whether that new version is a new car altogether or just a special edition—perhaps a premium one—remains to be seen.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is an expensive car. That’s not new. But what is new is the price of its replacement parts, at least to those who don’t own one or work for Porsche. A Porsche specialist decided to give the Internet something to talk about by leaking some of the pricing information for the 918 Spyder’s parts. This included information on the cost of everything from a replacement engine to the floor mats. We’ll let you guess which of those two is the more affordable.
Since the Lamborghini Centenario just made its debut we’ll have to wait a bit before videos of it hit YouTube. Luckily we got to hear a bit of what the Centenario sounds like when a video of it leaving the Geneva Motor Show was aired. The supercar didn’t exactly go full-bore with its exhaust note but we did get to hear a bit of chatter.
This week’s roundup ends with the University of Illinois and its very wealthy students. We know these students are wealthy because of the cars they drive, which include a Lamborghini Huracan and the aforementioned Nissan GT-R. When it comes to being a supercar spotter, it usually helps big time if you’re in a major international city. Who would have thought Champaign, Illinois, would be a fine alternative to Monaco?
