Bugatti

Bugatti debuted the Pur Sport; only 60 will ever be built for the world.

The new model is an uncompromising hypersports car for exactly those winding roads – a new aerodynamic configuration generates more downforce while the lower weight increases agility.

Koenigsegg

Koenigsegg unveiled the Jesko Absolut that will reach 300mph and accompanies the High Downforce Jesko debuted at Geneva 2019; only 120 Jeskos will ever be built for the world:

Ultimate performance has belonged to the world of two-seaters with very limited luggage space – until now. The Gemera is the world’s first Mega-GT and Koenigsegg’s first four-seater. Extreme megacar meets spacious interior and ultimate environmental consciousness.

Aston Martin

Aston Martin debuted the V12 Speedster; only 88 will ever be built for the world:

Demonstrating the skills and meticulous planning of ‘Q by Aston Martin’ and Aston Martin Design, the V12 Speedster is a living show car, underlining our commitment to deliver stunning driver’s cars, using the engineering ingenuity and advanced materials evident throughout the entire Aston Martin range.

Bentley

Bentley debuted the Bacalar; only 12 will ever be built for the world:

The rarest two-door Bentley of the modern era, and the ultimate expression of two-seat, open-air luxury, this definitive Grand Tourer spearheads a return to coachbuilding by Bentley Mulliner – the oldest coachbuilder in the world.

Rimac

Rimac continues to amaze the world and its win over its critics with driving prowess of the Concept Two:

The Rimac C_Two is a pure electric GT hypercar as capable on track as it is crossing continents. A car as bespoke as it is user-friendly. Configurable, personal and extremely powerful, representing what is possible when true innovation and passion is allowed free rein. 

McLaren

McLaren debuted the much anticipated 765LT Coupe; only 765 will be built for the world:

Being based on the incredible 720S, the latest LT has everything in its favour. A flying start. And it delivers on every level. Radically lightened and lower, the 765LT uses innovative aerodynamics to create 25% more downforce than the 720S.

Pininfarina Unveils The Battista Anniversario

By marketingo | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, March 2nd, 2020 at 11:00 PM

Battista Anniversario is the ultimate design expression of the most powerful road-legal Italian car ever made
– Just five Battista Anniversario cars to be built, priced from €2.6 million
– Battista Anniversario presented in unique Pininfarina heritage-inspired design theme with aerodynamic enhancements
– With new forged aluminium wheels and performance-oriented tyres, top speed increases to 350 km/h (217 mph)
– Only 150 Battista hypercars, including the five Anniversario cars, to be hand-crafted in Italy and expected to enter into production by the end of 2020

Automobili Pininfarina has unveiled the ultimate expression of the world’s
first luxury pure-electric hyper GT, the Battista Anniversario. The Battista Anniversario celebrates 90 years since Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina created the legendary Pininfarina coachbuilder.

Battista Anniversario is also equipped with the ‘Furiosa’ package, now available to specify with any Battista, comprising a revised carbon fibre front splitter, side blades and rear diffuser. Exclusively on the Anniversario, these parts are finished in a two-tone combination of exposed signature carbon and carbon tinted in Iconica Blu with pin stripes in Bianco Sestriere. Besides the exclusive livery, a bespoke rear wing, rear aero fins and other bespoke details are unique to the Battista Anniversario. The aerodynamic enhancements enabled by the Furiosa exterior changes deliver increased
downforce and greater stability at higher cornering speeds and a more dynamic balance to the car. The Anniversario’s handling dynamism is further sharpened by a reduction in unsprung weight of almost 10 kg, thanks to a new wheel design which features centre-lock forged aluminium wheels. The rear wheels grow from 20-inch to 21-inch. Together with the performance-oriented tyres, the new rims enable the car to achieve its top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). The optional ‘Impulso’ wheels complement the options programme available for Battista.

The Koenigsegg Jesko’s Attention To Detail: 34 Layers of Paint

Larry Kosilla, founder of Ammo NYC, takes a paint gauge to two cars in their detailing shop in this video covering his detailing of a Jesko in preparation for a show. The first, a Porsche, registers just under 5.0 mils (1/1000th of an inch) of paint. The next, a Rolls-Royce checks in at 7.3 mils. This Jesko? Its paint is more than 30 mils thick. 

“The paint is the thickest and most robust of any production vehicle on the market today,” said Kosilla, “I’ve polished a lot of cars, and this one in particular is very resilient. You can just feel how heavy it is.”

Kosilla says it has 20 coats of base, one coat of pearl (which makes up the most of what you see), then one of champagne (for the fleck). Then, on the dark panels, it has a coat each of grey, blue and green. The color is then covered in nine layers of clear coat. Just wow.

Bugatti Blazes Past 300mph, The First To Ever Do It.

By marketingo | Posted in Featured Cars on Friday, September 27th, 2019 at 5:53 PM

The hypercar race war to break the 300mph barrier is over. In a six month collective effort between Bugatti engineers, Dallara and Michelin the Bugatti Chiron has been announced as the first manufacturer vehicle to break the 300-mile-an-hour barrier.Bugatti Chiron 300mph

The highlights of the menacing Chiron created features a long tail which enhances overall aerodynamics and lowers drag, a boost to 1578 horsepower and upgraded Michelin tires to handle the increased road stress. Measuring 9.84 inches longer than a stock Chiron, stripped out interior and lower ride height for drag purposes the upgraded Chiron was in true race mode to battle the task at Ehra-Lessien test track, Germany.

Driven by the well accoladed Andy Wallace the Bugatti was in good hands, despite being described as, “Being quite difficult to do” by the driver himself. “Now Bugatti was the first to exceed the 300-mile-per-hour mark. An incredible achievement that shows what the men and women of Bugatti are capable of. But this was the last time for us. Bugatti was the first to exceed 300-mile-per-hour – its name will go down in the history books and it will stay that way forever” added Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti.
