And the unannounced price is expected to grow exponentially due to the current political climate eschewing cars manufactured in Canada (or Mexico).

Nice new avatar, CLS. Can you provide a shot of the bridge?

And now....Something different!:D

"Renault is taking its design language in a new direction, and what better way to show that new direction than a sleek electric sports car concept with a racing-derived powertrain?

That’s exactly what Renault unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, in the form of the Trezor concept. The Trezor follows in the footsteps of the 2010 DeZir concept, which introduced styling that is now used on many current Renault models. Like the DeZir, the Trezor itself won’t go into production, but its design DNA will be passed on to the French automaker’s future models. It’s the shape of things to come, literally.

The Trezor adopts classic sports-car proportions. The cabin is pushed so far to the back that it looks like there should be an internal-combustion engine under that long expanse of hood. In addition to being long, the Trezor is wide and low, standing just 42.5 inches tall. The sleek design helps contribute to an impressive drag coefficient of 0.22.
"


"For the powertrain, Renault used an electric motor and regenerative braking system based on the hardware from its Formula E race cars. The motor sends 350 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels, getting the Trezor from 0 to 62 mph in less than four seconds, according to Renault. The Trezor uses a carbon fiber passenger cell with tubular steel frames attached to the front and rear, helping keep weight down to 1,600 kilograms (3,527 pounds)."

"Instead of conventional doors, the Trezor’s roof lifts off to allow access to the two-seat cockpit. The dashboard is one big curved OLED display made from Gorilla Glass, with touch controls handling most functions. The Trezor is capable of autonomous driving, and when it’s in self-driving mode, the steering wheel extends in width, providing a clearer view of the screen.

While the Trezor is just a concept car, many of its elements will show up on production Renaults, including at least some of the styling cues, and autonomous-driving tech. Along with partner Nissan, Renault plans to make autonomous systems available on mainstream models beginning in 2020.

Move it off the sales Forecourt/lot and it starts to loose its Value ( Depreciation ) 10 to 20% a year is not unexpected
with a Starting Price of Circa : £357,000 approx ( + Mexico wall tax of 20% ).
The other 2 cost less and tend not to depreciate in Value ( Excellent Carpeen boasting material) however the Other is still just a Henry Skateboard :)

Depreciation on the Ford GT40 was withering. It goes for what, maybe only 125 times original purchase price?

Thats probably because of
Production‎: ‎1964-1969; 107 produced = Rarity Collector Value :)
This new ford GT40 is Going to be made in the 10,000's not a lot of rarity there !!!

The Lamborghini Huracán Performante has just smashed the lap record set by a production car around thw Nürburgring Nordschleife route in Germany.

It clocked a time of 6:52.01 at the 13-mile circuit, beating the previous lap record held by the near-£1million Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar by five seconds.




it's a tuned version of the existing Huracán coupe, featuring the same 5.2-litre V10 powerplant but with more power than the 602 horses produced by the standard supercar.




The name 'Performante' harks back to the 2010 Gallardo Performante but will follow the same formula as previous lightweight models under the 'Superleggera' (meaning superlight) name.

That includes the stripped out Gallardo version - the car that preceded the Huracán - that lost 100kg in the weight-saving exercise.

Prices haven't been confirmed, though rumours suggest it will be around £285,000 ($350,000), which is almost £100,000 more than the £188,804 asking price for a standard Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4.

More information will be released along with official shots of the car on 7 March when the Performante is unveiled for the first time at 8.55am at the Swiss motor show.

GT was designed for corners, and straights. Remember, it came 1-2-4 at LeMans 24 hour (a Ferrari managed to stay in third spoiling the fun).

A new record lap time was posted in a Ford GT at the Nürburgring. It wasn't the new GT, it certainly wasn't street-legal, and it wasn't clocked strictly on the Nordschleife. so the record doesnt apply/stand

http://www.carscoops.com/2016/09/ford-gt-clocks-record-nurburgring-lap.html
That time kind of sucks. That said, the old GT was more about paying homage to the GT of yore and not a thoroughbred race machine like the 2017 GT. I'm thinking the stock 2017 GT can do better. It definitely won't break any records but Ford still should do it.

Because if a car is tuned such that it's good for Nürburgring, it's no good anywhere else :p

British supercar-maker McLaren today proclaimed ‘a new era’, as its 212mph 720S model became the first of its second-generation Super Series




The 720S accelerates from rest to 60mph in just 2.8 seconds compared to 2.9 seconds for the outgoing car. And hitting 124mph takes the 720S just 7.8 sec compared to 8.4 seconds for the 650S.

It has a bigger engine – a 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 – that develops the 720 horse-power which gives the new car its numeric name.

That compares the the 3.8-litre twin turbo in the 650S which similarly develops 650 horse-power.

As a result the 720S’s 212mph top speed is 5mph faster than the 207mph achieved by the 650S.












1. The new, twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine produces 720PS and 770Nm with a power-to-weight ratio of 561PS per tonne.

2. 41% of the engine is made up of new parts compared to the 3.8-litre engine that feature in other McLaren Sports Series models.

3. The carbon fibre chassis keeps the weight down to 1,283kg.

4. There are no radiator intakes on the side of the car. Instead, this function is carried out by the unique ‘double-skin’ aerodynamic form of the angled upward-opening ‘dihedral’ doors, which channel air to the high-temperature radiators that cool the mid-mounted engine.

5. 0 to 62mph takes less than 3 seconds and just 5 seconds later the car has passed the 124mph mark on its way to a maximum speed of 212mph.

6. It stops even quicker, taking 4.6 seconds to come to a halt from 124mph, covering 117 metres in the process.

7. CO2 emissions at 249g/km are also slightly lower than the 275g/km in the 650S – but still hefty by normal car standards.

8. The structure is based around a new carbon fibre tub and a 'Monocage'. McLaren says this technology 'delivers extreme strength and rigidity in a lightweight structure and is the ideal base for any supercar'.

9. The interior is hand-crafted using a blend of fine leathers and machined aluminium, with a folding driver display and central infotainment screen.

10. There’s space behind the seat-backs for two soft holdalls or carry on luggage bags – equivalent to 210 litres – in addition to the 150 litres under the front panel.

Chinese firm Techrules reveals £2.2m Ren supercar with diesel turbines powering an electric motor




The firm's patent-protected hybrid powertrain combines 'extensive experience of aerospace and electric vehicle technologies with several proprietary technical innovations to deliver unprecedented levels of efficiency and performance, and ultra-low environmental impact,' according to the men in the know.





And it is claimed to have 1,287bhp, reach 217mph and sprint from 0 to 62mph in 2.5 seconds.








At Monza



The initial batch of cars can be ordered now and will be built in Italy, with first deliveries predicted in 12 months' time. No price has been disclosed but it's expected to be about £2.2million

World's fastest shed hits 155.6kmh




British gardener Kevin Nicks has smashed through his official record for the world's fastest shed - by reaching a top speed of 96.8mph (155.7kmh).

The 52-year-old, from Chipping-Norton in Oxfordshire, surpassed his previous official record by 128kmh on August 19, at the Wheelie and Top Speed Championships event at Elvington Airfield in York.

Nicks was hoping to break the 160kmh (100mph) mark and only fell short due to high winds and adverse weather conditions
