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.

lamborghini veneno supercar

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.

The model making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show is grey, but the three production models will each be finished in one of the three colors of the Italian flag.

The green, white and red cars will retail for €3 million ($3.9 million) plus tax and Lamborghini claims it has already secured a buyer for every example.

However the display model, which carries the production number 0, will remain the property of Lamborghini.

Likewise, although the Italian supercar maker has guaranteed delivery of each production model before the end of the year, production won’t start until further track-based testing has been completed.

LykanHypersport 2013, the first Arabian supercar

W Motors Lykan Hypersport

The Arab world’s first true supercar, the LykanHypersport 2013, is turning heads in its official debut at the Qatar Motor Show this week.

Beirut-based W Motor claim that its flat-six, twin-turbocharged engine delivers 750hp and will propel the car from 0 to 100 kph in 2.8 seconds to reach the breakneck maximum speed of 390 kph. In doing so the car is entering Bugatti Veyron territory in terms of performance levels.

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.

The LykanHypersport 2013 will retail for $3.4 million with the first orders expected to be fulfilled in September 2013.
