Moment Driver Crashes £200,000 Ferrari On Test Drive

This is the moment a motorist crashed a new £200,000 Ferrari while taking it out for a test drive.

The man was reportedly driving the 14-plate Ferrari F458, which can reach speeds of 202mph, down the overtaking lane of the A12 near Essex when he lost control.

The red supercar spun into a nearby Volkswagen Bora, before smashing into the central reservation, according to witnesses.

Police were called to the scene, where they discovered the remains of the vehicle on the southbound carriageway between Dedham and Langham.

Incredibly, no-one was injured in the crash, which took place just after 10am on July 5.

The Ferrari, a 2014 demo model which is capable of 0-60mph in three seconds, is said to belong to Lancaster Ferrari, a Ferrari dealership based in Colchester.

The driver, who was described as wearing an expensive suit, is thought to have been taking the new car, which retails for upwards of £208,000, for a test drive in the hope of later buying it.

We highly doubt he will be buying it now.

Say Hello To The Exagon Furtive-EGT EV Supercar

Say Hello To The Exagon Furtive-EGT EV Supercar

The French company Exagon is making news with its impressive EV the Furtive-eGT. The Furtive-eGT has been around in concept form since 2010 and a few may even have been delivered.

Now it is on its way to the Salute to Style at the Hurlingham Club in London as Exagon appears ready to go into serial production.

Technically the Furtive-eGT is an impressive beast. The car combines an extremely lightweight composite body weighing just 274 pounds, and an incredibly stiff carbon fiber-honeycomb monocoque of the same variety found on F1 cars.

These lightweight bones are powered by some serious electric muscle. Two Siemens electric motors produce a total of 400 horsepower at the rear wheels, good for 0-62 mph in 3.5 tire squealing seconds.

Worryingly Exagon hasn’t said what kind of range we can expect from the SAFT sourced lithium-ion batteries. Hopefully that is because testing just hasn’t been completed rather than furtiveness about the truth.

Bugatti to Succeed Veyron with 1500hp Supercar

Bugatti to Succeed Veyron with 1500hp Supercar

Bugatti, the maker of exotic supercars such as the 1,200-horsepower Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, is considering a model that some might feel contradicts the ethos of the extravagant brand: a hybrid.

The French manufacturer, owned by Volkswagen, has developed the blueprint for a 2015 follow-up model to the 0.99 million pounds limited-series Veyron that may sell out this year, two sources at VW group with knowledge of the matter said.

The two-door model may rely on a 1,500-horsepower, 16-cylinder engine and will probably be limited to about 450 cars, the same as the expiring Veyron, the sources told Reuters on Wednesday.

Bugatti’s new chief executive Wolfgang Duerheimer, a former R&D boss at Audi and Porsche who returned to the French brand on June 1, favours a hybrid version of the brand’s next model, the sources said on condition they not be identified because the matter is confidential.

Ultra-luxury nameplates such as Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche are embracing electric powertrains after being on the cutting edge for years in upgrading chassis and engine electronics while striving to trim CO2 emissions.

Hybrid systems used in McLaren’s P1 model and Porsche’s 918 Spyder work to boost performance and fuel economy.

“Moving to hybrid propulsion seems like a logical next step” for supercar-makers, said Stefan Bratzel, head of the Centre of Automotive Management near Cologne. “By curbing emissions and boosting performance, they can justify building more of these cars.”

The new model will beat the 268 miles top speed of Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport, which lost the title of the world’s fastest production car in February to the Hennessey Venom GT, sources said.

“The new model will not be less exciting than the Veyron,” a spokeswoman for Bugatti said, without being more specific. “Our customers have certain expectations.”

Wolfsburg-based VW acquired the Bugatti brand in 1998 along with Lamborghini and Bentley Motors to create a stable of high-end carmakers. VW doesn’t break out Bugatti’s earnings in quarterly or annual reporting, but a company source says the brand has been loss-making for years on high development costs for the Veyron.

Under VW’s reign, the super-luxury brand, which traces its roots back to Italian-born car designer Ettore Bugatti, started production of the Veyron series in 2005. Some 430 of the 450 planned models have been sold, the spokeswoman said.

VIDEO: Man Jumps Over Lamborghini Travelling at 130 KMH

A Swedish daredevil has performed the classic “don’t try this at home” stunt. Footage of “Al the jumper” jumping over a speeding Lamborghini Gallardo driven straight at him at 130 kmh has appeared online recently.

“Al the jumper” (real name Ousseyni Issa Gobitaca) filmed the stunt on the outskirts of Stockholm, Sweden.

In a classic understatement, he remarks on the clip, that he’s not sure he sees the seriousness of the stunt. “I’m just thinking jump, jump.”

It is not the first time the daredevil has jumped a moving car. In 2011 it was also Lamborghini Gallardo but that time it was travelling at a pedestrian 80 kmh.

The paper reports that the hotel had initially promised to pay for the works but later declined that offer and a complaint has been filed with police.

Nipun Mglani, who was borrowing the car, said: “The car had been parked by valets a number of times before.

“Even that afternoon, the valet took the car to the parking safely and even brought it back to the porch area without any hassles.”

Nipun said that before the collision with the wall the Lamborghini hit another car causing it to spin round and hit another car.

Meet The Philippines First Supercar

Meet The Philippines First Supercar

There has been a lot of chatter online about a brand new supercar coming from the Philippines! Aurelio is causing quite a stir. Why? Simply because of its unusual country of origin.

What country do you think of for making supercars? Italy, probably. But then you also have Koenigsegg in Sweden, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz in Germany as well as many British marques like Aston Martin venturing into this heavily contested segment of the market.

The company behind the car, formerly known as Factor Aurelio and now simply Aurelio after internal disagreements, the design of the car is certainly unique. Available either with a Honda B16A V-TEC engine or a Mitsubishi 4G63T turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, the Aurelio ‘supercar’ could prove quite fast.

Unsurprisingly, no performance or power figures have been announced but the car is reportedly made from fibreglass reinforced plastic as well as select carbon fibre components.

Update: Teen Admits Jumping on Bonnet of £245,000 McLaren

Millionaire hunts teen who 'surfed' on £245,000 supercar and posted pics on Facebook

We recently wrote about the hunt for a teen who jumped on the bonnet of a £245,000 McLaren. The picture went viral on Facebook as users shared it asking if anyone knows the culprit.

The 17-year-old from Port Talbot, who can’t be named for legal reasons, has admitted criminal damage in a youth court after he was pictured standing on a McLaren 12C spider.

The owner of the luxury car had stopped off for food in Port Talbot, and parked the vehicle in an access road between Forge Road and a Tesco supermarket to watch it from where he was dining, but did not see the man standing on the bonnet.

It was only when a friend later forwarded him the photo that he found out what had happened. The teenager appeared at youth court in Swansea, where he admitted the single charge.

But sentencing was adjourned until July 24, so that the cost of the damage could be properly established first.

Representing the defendant, James McKenna said: “There is no doubt the value will be a large amount, but exactly what has been done and how much it is going to cost is difficult to say.

“We are being told by the owner that damage has been done, but I would like something from McLaren to tell us what the damage is.”

The identity of the defendant, who was accompanied by his grandmother, is protected because he is under the age of 18. He was released on bail to return later this month.
