LAMBORGHINI REVENTóN ROADSTER

Lets start with a little bit of history, The Lamborghini Reventon is a special edition exotic super vehicle cross between a jet fighter and a fighting bull, The Reventon is inspired by the f-22 Raptor and the name comes from a famous fighting bull called Reventon owned by  don Heriberto Rodríguez family, Reventon was famouse for killing top bull fighter Félix Guzmán in 1943, There was only 20 Lamborghini Reventon’s made until now they thought cutting the roof off this spectacular vehicle they could sell another 20, deliveries will be made In the month of October to those who had 1.1 mil euro handy.

Whats new well nothing really except you have unlimited head space, The engine is still the slightly tuned 12 cylinder 6.5 litter out of the Murcielago it still goes though taking you a small 3.4 to 100 km ( 62 mph) but slightly slower top speed going 330 km (206 mph)  lamborghini_reventon_spyder_001

1997-mclaren-f1-thumbnail

Once to hold the world record of the fastest production car at the speed of 240.1 mph (386 km/h) The record was set on the 31 of march 1998 but has now been beaten by SSC ultimate Aero  going 257 mph, Bugatti Veyron going 253 mph, Saleen s7 twin turbo  going 248 and the koenigsegg ccx going 245 mph

This road going F1 is a fully carbon fiber composite body keeping the the Mclaren Kerb weight down to make this car a great handling and performing vehicle with the BMW S70/2 engine, specifically designed and built for the car. The 6.1-litre, quad-cam, 48-valve V12 produced 627 horsepower launching its      1140 kg (2513 lbs)  frame to 60 mph (100 kg) in only 3.2 seconds

1/4 mile 11.1 seconds @ 222 / 138 km/h / mph
Standing km 19.6 seconds @ 285 / 177 km/h / mph

The seating position is dead in the center to keep this car more F1 like and so the driver has the best feel of the car but don’t worry you can take passengers one on either side of you

What makes this car more F1 like is the aerodynamics with Full underbody air management (fan assisted). Driver selectable high downforce mode. Automatic brake and balance aerofoil system.

The new Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder

Lambo_gallardo_560_113_1024x768

The lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder,

With an even more powerful engine, permanent all-wheel drive and an all-new chassis means that the Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder offers yet another significant increase in performance against its predecessor. With its innovative design, the new LP 560-4 Spyder takes the unique Lamborghini styling ethic to the next level; the

 Spyder displays this powerful and elegant design language with even greater distinctiveness, making it all the more unmistakable. 

The Gallardo LP 560-4 has been on the market since early 2008, as the successor to the most successful Lamborghini of all-time – since 2003, more than 8,500 models bearing the Gallardo name have left the production line 

Lamborghini has been busy improving traction, handling and stability at high speeds. The redesigned four-wheel drive transmission, the new suspension, the improved stiffness of the Spyder bodyshell and the optimized aerodynamics all contribute to the overall improvements in the vehicle, as do the reduced weight and decreased friction throughout the components. 

The LP 560-4 Spyder takes only 4.0 seconds to sprint from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h), reaching 124 mph (0 to 200 km/h) in only 13.1 seconds and going on to a top speed of 201 mph (324 km/h)

Engine. 

The V10 5.2 lt  makes a nice 560 horsepower (412 kW) at 8,000 rpm – giving output per liter of 107.6 horsepower. The engine delivers a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft (540 Nm) at 6,500 rpm.

Mitsubishi Evo X FQ-400

Mitsubishi_Lancer_evo-X_204_1024x768The Brits have developed a special fondness for tuning Mitsubishi EVOs the past few years with the most impressing version being the FQ-400 – and yes, FQ actually does stand for F***ing Quick as it’s an internal code which somehow passed into “production”… For those of you that missed the FQ400, you’ll be happy to learn that Mitsubishi UK and its race team builder ADR Motorsport is bringing back the iconic nameplate on the latest iteration of the Lancer EVO. In what promises to be the fastest (and most expensive) EVO yet, the Lancer EVO X FQ-400 will pack a souped-up version of the standard car’s 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with a new ECU and exhaust system to produce around 405HP and 400lb-ft of torque. That should be good enough to propel the EVO from standstill to 60mph (96 km/h) in around 3,5 – 3,7 sec. Comparatively, the 354HP EVO X FQ360 sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4,1 sec. As with the FQ-360 version, Mitsubishi UK will offer the FQ-400 exclusively with a six-speed manual gearbox as the company is still reluctant to match the engine’s 400 lb-ft of torque with the quick and efficient dual-clutch SST (Sports Shift Transmission). Along with the engine upgrades, the FQ400 will also benefit from a new body kit with additional cooling intakes and vents, 18-inch alloy wheels and larger brakes with six-pot calipers at the front. Mitsubishi has yet to (officially) release details, but according to Autocar magazine, the Japanese firm indicated that the car will cost somewhere north of £45,000 with only 100 units planned to be produced.Mitsubishi_Lancer_evo-X_205_1024x768
