2018 DALLARA Stradale Roadster – Make the World Your Racetrack! [99 Photos]

  This beautiful new supercar starts life with no doors and no windshield or upright cowl whatsoever.  Just a sleek, wide disk shooting around a circuit! A windshield option makes this a Dallara Stradale Roadster, and a bubble glass hardtop makes it into a Dallara Stradale Targa. Loving them all is easy.  A few reasons: — This is a right-now production car.  First delivery happened last week and production is in full swing. — Dallara is a name known on racetracks worldwide.  They make the carbon chassis tubs for everyone.  Seriously. So they have carbon-fiber at scale.  And wind tunnels …

2017 Donkervoort D8 GTO RS Bare Naked Carbon Edition

Just 15 of these outrageous machines are set for production.  Donkervoort sold out the initial run of D8 RS models in record time.  This makes sense: the machine offers a sensory hypercar experience unlike any other. Imagine the ultra-low and precise drive position of a Morgan.  The rigidity of a Pagani and the thrust like a McLaren. You land somewhere close to the D8 GTO RS. Power comes from a tuned 2.5-liter Audi five-cylinder making about 450HP.  With a curb weight of just 1600 pounds and massive traction from the wide back rubber, the GTO RS sprints to 60-mph in …

Novitec Debuts Tesla Model X Stage One Bodykit, Vossen 22s and CCBs

Welcome to Hell! Electric cars heading to the supertuning boutique? Yes, the day has come, folks. Just kidding. The Tesla X is already over $100k easily and rips to 100-mph like a stabbed rat.  So why not upgrade its style and stance to match? If you’re like us, you loathe the Tesla roofline and bloated surfaces.  But realize: the looks outside, and the glasshouse in particular, are basically just there to create ridiculously airy cabins.  The same reason there is a double-height windshield — to make the X feel like a legit spaceship.  Once you accept that — and know …

Yes, bare carbon on supercars and hypercars is astounding.  How would it be so light, so strong and so beautiful!?   How does the weave intoxicate the eye with its perfect form?

2016 BENGALA F12 Caballeria Is All-Carbon Ferrari Style/Speed Upgrade

Delighted to see Bengala evolve from a design boutique into a proper supercar tuner! The Madrid-based firm just revealed its first serial production model.  But huge volume will never be the name of this high-dollar game. Nope, exclusivity is the core of the all-carbon Bengala upgrade suite.  Reiminaged panels, lighter weights and upgraded aero are all a huge part of the ten-unit run of F12 Caballerias that Bengala will produce this year. The design is wilder than stock, of course, thanks to heavily exaggerated swoops and airducts.  As though the original car were some kind of insane widebody — but …
