A very lucky owners were snapped up by six of Ferrari’s most loyal customers who were invited by the automaker to place an order.

Sebastian Vettel - The Highest Paid Driver In History

Sebastian Vettel – The Highest Paid Driver In History

The four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel will quit the Red Bull team at the end of the season and join Ferrari. He will sign a three-year deal, and a figure of £50million (approximately $80million) per year has already been reported as the price Ferrari will have paid, making Vettel one of the world’s highest paid driver in history.

Legendary Michael Schumacher, who won five titles for Ferrari, was being paid $31 million per year which puts him slightly in the shadow compared to Vettel’s future earnings. Ferrari has always taken the sport especially seriously, but since 2007, Ferrari hasn’t captured a driver’s title. Ferrari will start a new chapter with a hope that Sebastian would be able to return the title.

“The voice inside me, the hunger to do something new, was bigger. It was not the easiest decision but you have to listen to your heart,” said Vettel.

Winning 39 races and four consecutive championships, Vettel had dominated the sport in recent years. Although not yet officially conformed, for next year likely to sign a large contract is Fernando Alson, the man that Vettel replaced at Ferrari. Another novelty is that the McLaren team will get a new Honda engine next year.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner said: “All I can do is wish him the very, very best for the future. He will still be close to our hearts at Red Bull, but on January 1 he will be a competitor. Obviously Ferrari have made him a very attractive offer.”

SSC Tuatara

Manufactured by SSC or Shelby SuperCars, the powerful Tuatara supercar was unveiled couple a years ago at the Dubai International Motor Show. The highly anticipated vehicle could finally become a reality next year. The company’s founder Jerod Shelby has revealed that SSC is ready to start construction of a new plant in West Richland,Washington. The factory should open in the first quarter of 2015.

“This is a lifelong dream for me. We will get there and the project will be very successful,” said company founder Jerod Shelby.

I am sure that you all remember the previous model, Ultimate Aero which set its record back in 2007 on a public highway in Washington when it was able to hit an impressive top speed of 256.14 mph. At 2010, Ultimate Aero lost the title of the fastest production when Veyron Sport hit a top speed of 267.8 mph.

Designed by the talented Jason Castriota of SAAB and Fiat fame, the Tuatara will be powered by a custom twin-turbocharged V-8 engine capable of delivering 1,350 horsepower and 1,280 pound-feet of torque. It will have a top speed of 276mph. Already SSC has a number of orders for the Tuatara, which retails for $1.3 million.

Hugo Boss and Mercedes

Hugo Boss and Mercedes

The luxury fashion and style house Hugo Boss has started a new partnership with the legendary Mercedes. Ending the association which began back in 1981 with McLaren, the German fashion brand Hugo Boss will partner the championship-leading Mercedes Formula One team next year. The branding of the German fashion house will appear on the 2015 Silver Arrows Formula 1 cars.

“We are delighted to welcome HUGO BOSS to our family of team partners, and to further extend the existing partnership with Mercedes-Benz. The synergies between our two companies are both striking and extensive; we operate to the highest levels of precision and quality in our pursuit of perfection, with both brands targeting the premium and luxury market. As a team, we are very pleased to have attracted another brand of the stature of HUGO BOSS to add to our already extensive and impressive suite of partners. Everyone at the team is excited about the prospect of being ‘kitted out’ by HUGO BOSS at the race tracks next season,” head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, Toto Wolff, said.

The Hugo Boss will develop a ‘BOSS for Mercedes-Benz Collection’, inspired by the Formula One team, which will be available twice a year featuring high-end menswear fashion. Besides all of this the McLaren are switching to Honda engines from Mercedes next season.

The Koenigsegg Agera HH and Pagani Zonda HH

The Koenigsegg Agera HH and Pagani Zonda HH

David Heinemeir Hanson is a Danish programmer who created the popular Ruby on Rails web development framework and the Instiki wiki. He has recently attracted a lot of attention with his new car, the Koenigsegg Agera HH which is a dream of many supercars lovers. He ordered a custom Zonda a couple of years ago and earlier this year he took delivery of a costum Koenigsegg Agera.

Based on an Agera S technical spec, with Aricore hollow carbon-fiber wheels, upgraded power and enhanced aerodynamics, the Koengsegg Agera HH is truly the car that leaves you absolutely speechless. It is one of just a few Koenigsegg Ageras currently in the United States.

The Agera S is powered by an in-house developed 1030-hp 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8, with a top speed of 272 mph, while the Pagani Zonda HH features the engine from the rare Cinque (680hp 7.3L AMG V12) and most of the bodywork from the Zonda F Roadster.

The personalized supercars specially made for Mr. HH are finished in Monterey Blue and carbon fibre. Besides the extraordinary external appearance these cars are also adorned by great performances, making the owner even more proud of his perfect cars.

Tushek TS 600

Tushek TS 600

The company from Slovenia, Tushek & Speigel, introduced its all new model T600 at the 2014 Top Marques Monaco. Slovenian supercar startup Tushek has been rebranded Tushek & Spigel and is now based in Austria. The previous model was the Renovatio T500, revealed to the world at the 2012 Top Marques Monaco.

The Tushek TS 600 is an update of the previous T500 and it features a lot of different elements which make it completely unique. The car will be built by hand and can be individually tailored to meet the desires of its buyer. T600 will feature its own V-8 engine, producing 620 horsepower and presumably around 400 pound-feet of torque. Given its relatively modest weight, that translates to an incredible 4-to-1 pound:horsepower ratio.

The company also says the car weighs 2,470 pounds. It is made exclusively from lightweight racing and aviation-spec materials, as titanium, carbon and aluminium.

Production of the car will begin later this year limited to 60 units. But not all 60 cars will be the same, half will be road-going models, half track-only “Pista” variants with an additional 50 horses. Alcantara, leather, aluminium and carbon adorn the interior.

Power is not all the T600 offers either, as its chassis allows it to hold a massive 1.8 G on a skid pad.

One of the most important shows in the automotive calendar is for sure the Paris Motor Show or Mondial de l’Automobile.

Ferrari also chose to present new supercar at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Ferrari 458 Speciale A is the most powerful convertible ever produced by the Italian manufacturer. Talking about its name we have to mention the additional A which comes from the Italian word Aperta, meaning “open.” Ferrari 458 Speciale A will be produced in a limited edition of 499 units.
Ferrari Speciale A boasts 597bhp at 9000rpm and 398lb ft of torque at 6000rpm. Powered by a 605hp V8, the car rockets from 0 to 100km/h in just 3 seconds. The retractable hard top retracts and deploys in just 14 seconds.

The car was presented in a yellow body with a Blue Nart and Bianco Avus stripe running from nose to tail, an homage to Luigi Chinetti’s legendary American racing team which won many endurance classics in the 1960s in Ferraris. The cockpit has a matching yellow color for the seats along with Alcantara, and the door panels, center tunnel and tread plates will be covered in blue carbon fiber.
