Aston Martin Vantage 2019 Prototype: A British Classic is Reborn

The Aston Martin Vantage 2019 is the closest to perfection a driver can experience. With a beast of an engine, a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, capable of reaching 503 hp, speed and power is never in doubt. The new Vantage is a two-seater, with rear-wheel-drive. The sports car has a front/mid-mounted V8 engine. The Vantage is Aston Martin’s best selling model, shifting over 25,000 units since inception. Its main completion comes from the Jaguar F-Type SVR, the Mercedes AMG GT, and the Porsche 911 Turbo, yet the Vantage takes them on square and fair, coming trumps up in several departments. Nice little touches, like the optional sports exhaust, quad outlets, or the steel body shell.

With a dry weight of 3,373 pounds and estimates of 3,594 pounds with fluids, it compares favourably with the all-wheel-drive Porsche 911 Turbo. The car has an eight-speed automatic transmission, in a transaxle arrangement, which is 70% new. The wheels are 20 inch use adaptive dampers, and for the first time, an electronically controlled limited-slip differential is introduced.

The deep seats ooze comfort and afford a clear view of the windscreen, and central electronic console. The driving position is perfect and snug, allowing complete control of the sports car, and a clear picture over the high window lines. Placing your palms on the steering wheel and gently pressing the accelerator as the Vantage moves into motion. As the speed picks up, one notices a sense of speed, agility, comfort and extreme pleasure the experience brings about. The Vantage picks up speed, the well-proportioned steering wheel controlling the curves and bends, and the excellent road holding add a feeling of security mingled with the excitement of driving the Vantage at high speed. Even on a slippery surface, the brakes slow the Vantage smoothly and with minimal ABS intervention. The vantage is capable of reaching a speed of 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, yes it’s that fast!

Launched for sale in April 2018, and with a price tag of just over $149,000, expect the car to sell strongly, as its predecessors did before it.

Auburn Eight Supercharged Speedster

A record sale for Sotheby’s with the 1936 Auburn Eight Supercharged Speedster

International auction house Sotheby’s has sold an iconic art deco performance car of the Classic Era for the whooping $550,000. The original, authentic example has been beautifully restored to its former glory. It was formerly owned by well-known enthusiast David Tunick.

The Model 852 boasts a 150 bhp, 280 cu. in. inline eight-cylinder engine, single two-barrel carburetor, Schwitzer-Cummins centrifugal supercharger, three-speed manual transmission with a Columbia dual-ratio rear axle, solid front and rear axles with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 127 in.

Designed by the legendary Gordon Buehrig, it was a head turner even by the standards of its time with its curvaceous bodywork and a straight hood line that shot back from the radiator to a sharply vee’d windshield. The distinctive rear design, elegantly outlined by chrome and striping, gave the Speedster its everlasting nickname, which is, simply, “the boattail.”

The model that was sold at Sotheby’s auction is one of about one hundred fifty last-generation Speedsters built, and it is an authentic Speedster, with its original frame and body. The 1936 model Speedsters are extraordinarily rare, as they were essentially leftovers of the 1935 line, and therefore, they are highly desired among ACD enthusiasts.

At its sale in 2005, the Speedster was carefully restored by Jim Stranberg, of High Mountain Classics in Denver, Colorado, at a reported cost of $480,000. This was followed by a second restoration by its next owner who chose to change the colours by commissioning a high-quality repaint in the car’s original black, but he still retained the dark red leather interior of its Stranberg restoration.

The end result is this Auburn “Boattail” Speedster with a surprisingly modern-feeling pleasure to drive. This particular car still holds rank among the finest treasures from the past.

Seven-Figure Supercars You Have to Own

Household names as McLaren, Lamborghini, and Bugatti have become synonymous with supercars, and rightly so. These icons of technical prowess repeatedly set new benchmarks in all areas of the industry. But now, a growing number of boutique builders are stepping up and creating their own automotive machinations—each presenting boundary-breaking design, engineering, and performance. Here are a few examples in the seven-figure price range that are a must-have for avid automobile enthusiasts. If they can afford them, of course.

Boreas

Boreas

The Boreas Hypercar boasts a 7-speed automated manual transmission, which allows it to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 236 mph. It took a total of 10 years in development and is currently a one-off, although 12 individually designed successors are planned for production in January.

The carbon-fiber beast boasts a tubular aluminum chassis, fangs in the form of a 4-liter twin-turbo flat-6 engine (built by Germany’s RUF Automobile) that nets 900 hp and 885 ft lbs of torque. The car clocks zero to 62 mph in 2.7 seconds and can cruise at up to 249 mph. Only 25 examples are planned per year, each one priced at approximately $1.85 million.

Lykan HyperSport

Lamborghini and MIT Team Up on Terzo Millennio Hypercar Concept

One of the most exciting collaborations of 2017 could produce the car of the future – an all-electric road rocket that is more than just a treat for the eyes.

A self-repairing hypercar? That is what the Automobili Lamborghini’s visionary plans center around. In November, the company officially revealed its exploration into innovative technologies and the development of electric power trains in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). With that mission in mind, the marque also unveiled a super sports car concept called Lamborghini of the Terzo Millennio.lamborghini-terzo-millennio-side Under the collaboration with the participants in the MIT-Italy Program, both institutions are focused on five areas of advancement. These include new systems for propulsion and energy storage, a next-level design language, adoption of cutting-edge materials, and a new level of driver experience and automotive interface.

Lamborghini is not a brand that shies away from challenges and the Terzo Millennio concept certainly proves this with its entire carbon-fiber body serving as a reservoir for reserve energy.  

As far as energy and storage breakthroughs, supercapacitors fitted in the car will optimize power and contribute to the regeneration of kinetic energy while greatly increasing the system’s lifecycle compared to existent battery configurations. Storage capacity will be another key element of the Terzo Millennio’s entire carbon-fiber body. It will serve as a reservoir for reserve energy. This alternative “fuel” will be injected into electric motors located at each wheel. In addition, the vehicle’s proposed ability to conduct diagnostics and repair its own detected defects and weak points is a concept that will thrill many driving enthusiasts. This will be achieved via so-called arteries within the body that contain restorative chemicals.lamborghini-terzo-millennio-5

In theory, this will allow the vehicle to conduct its own diagnostics and structural repair. The car will boast forged composite monocoque construction and present a new direction in design—one that enhances aerodynamics more than ever. Inside, the driver will have access to the vehicle’s Piloted Driving simulation, which is capable of autonomously guiding the occupant around a selected racecourse before turning the car over to human control.

While the car is still far from production or even development, it’s certainly something that will stir waves in the automobile sector in the following years.
