McLaren has unveiled its P1 supercar, which can reach an electronically limited top speed of 350km/h and go from 0 to 100 km/h in under 3s.
McLaren unveiled its new P1 at the Paris Motor Show in September 2012 and presented it as a new breed of supercar without revealing any of its secrets or its performances. And the much-awaited supercar has now arrived.
McLaren’s new F1 driver Sergio Pérez attended the presentation of the final version of the P1 in Geneva. It comes with a 915 horsepower, 3.8-liter, twin turbo V8 engine and boasts exceptional performances.
The new supercar can go from 0 to 200km/h in under 7s and from 0 to 300km/h in 17s, which represents a 5s improvement on the performance of the pioneer McLaren F1. It also has a completely electric driving mode for urban journeys.
The production of the McLaren P1 will be limited to 375 units. Prices for this car will start at one million euros. See the McLaren P1 in action: youtu.be/VW2LOgchfno
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Lamborghini has introduced its fastest and most outrageous road car yet, the Veneno.
The Veneno is named after a legendary fighting bull whose reputation was built on the fact that it was one of the strongest and most aggressive in history.
The Veneno is based on the Aventador coupe and is built almost entirely from carbon fiber. It boasts a V12, 750 horespower powertrain and permanent four-wheel drive.
Lamborghini says the Veneno can reach speeds of 220 miles per hour (355 kilometers per hour) and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

But to be a true hypercar, performance and luxury must go hand in hand, and so for those who demand the finer things in life, the car’s LED headlights are diamond-encrusted while the seats feature real gold stitching.
The instrument panel uses a revolutionary 3D virtual holographic display and many of its functions and commands are motion- and gesture-activated.
Only 7 examples of the LykanHypersport 2013 will be produced and each one will come with a 24/7 concierge service and a special edition $200,000 Cyrus Klepcys Watch also limited to 7 examples.
