Ferrari Enzo the only car big enough for Zlatan Ibrahimovic

For some football players a Porsche 911 Turbo, Bentley Continental or even Ferrari 458 is enough to satisfy their rich tastes in supercars but for others that simply will no do.

Enter Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his taste in the rare and the Ferrari brand. Only 400 of the Ferrari Enzo supercars are around in the world and Zlatan has one of them.

A cool £750,000 should be enough to get your hands on an ultra exotic Enzo which were first built in 2003 and provide one of the closest experiences possible of a Formula One car in a street legal package.

So what is so special about the Ferrari Enzo that Zlatan wanted one?

For one the car bears the owners name and was commissioned to celebrate Ferrari’s first title of the new millennium and was designed by the Japanese former Pininfarina head designer with a limited production run in mind.

The car is a V12 mid-engined berlinetta capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in just 3.14 seconds and has a top speed that has been recorded at 221mph. The car featured F1 technology that was new at the time such as the fully carbon-fibre body, electrohydraulic transmission and ceramic composite disc brakes.

The Ferarri F430 which was itself succeeded by the 458 was the second Ferrari to get a version of the Enzo engine. The car like all Ferrari’s is a car you simply want to own and drive. It’s a vehicle that is born in the emotion and then has lots of impressive looking numbers listed below it.

Vencer Sarthe: New Dutch Supercar Unveiled

Vencer Sarthe: New Dutch Supercar Unveiled

Vencer has launched the production version of its 622bhp Sarthe supercar, featuring a brand new 6.2-litre V8 engine.

It’s a development of last year’s pre-production prototype – unveiled at the 2013 Top Marques exhibition in Monaco – and features over 100 changes and modifications.

This includes a few minor tweaks to the sculpted two-door’s original styling, such as the addition of open air-flow C-pillars and a revised engine cover. Vencer has also fitted aerodynamic front splitters and an automatic rear spoiler. Partly visual, these changes apparently help provide more downforce on the rear axle and ensure better engine cooling.

Under the compact front end is a 622bhp 6.2-lite V8 engine, capable of generating 838Nm of torque and featuring a supercharger for a more immediate throttle response. Although no performance figures have been released, Vencer claims the Sarthe is a “pure” driver’s car, “with a clear focus on road use”, as emphasised by the lack of “unnecessary computerized driving assistance”.

he Dutch start-up, founded in 2010, will hand-build each Sarthe at its new facility in Vriezenveen, with a projected output of one car per month. At that rate, it’s hardly surprisingly each one will start from €270,882, which works out at around £213,000, or slightly more than a Ferrari 458 Speciale.

This is Infiniti’s four-door supercar

This is Infiniti’s four-door supercar

This is the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration, and it’s a four-door, four-seat supercar. It weighs in over five metres long and two metres wide. It’s just 1.3m high and features monster 22in wheels.

It hints at an upcoming Infiniti range-topper, a statement of where Posh Nissan wants to head in the near future. Hence the big number: Q30 is the baby Infiniti, Q50 the mid-range car (hence the ’50’), and 80 for this range-topper.

Apparently the powertrain will be an electric hybrid setup with “additional technologies”, including adaptive damping for the suspension. The doors open ‘portal style’, there’s lightweight acoustic glass, and an interior sculpted from carbon-fibre, aluminium and many leathers.

Infiniti design director Alfonso Albaisa says: “In Q80 Inspiration, we wanted to capture that unforgettable feeling when you experience something important, something beautiful, something magnetic for the first time.”

The World’s Best Police Cars

The World's Best Police Cars

This is the new 2015 Dodge Charger police car. Not only does it look properly terrifying – monster front bull-bars, sinister projector-beam headlights and a streamlined silhouette – but, as a true American cop car should, it comes with a socking great V8.

You can, of course, get the Charger police car with the ‘Pentastar’ V6 (292bhp, 260lb ft torque), but any self-respecting US police force will want the V8 version. Specifically the 5.7-litre, HEMI-engined V8 with 370bhp, 390lb ft of torque and a 0-60mph time of less than six seconds.

Fast enough to give the majority of road-bound crims food for thought.Then there’s the reinforced RWD chassis, featuring performance suspension, load-levelling shocks, heavy duty brakes, stabiliser bars all round, 18-inch performance tyres, and – officially the Best Thing Ever – steel wheels.

Inside you get, officer, a new seven-inch full-colour instrument cluster, police-spec front seats (to better hold officers’ belt-mounted gear and felon-absorbing waistlines) and the ability to customise your ride with the help of Mopar.

Sadly customisations don’t include multi-coloured grenade racks or machine guns in the headlights or oil slicks on the rear or revolving numberplates. Partly because it’s not 1964, and partly because Mopar isn’t run by five-year olds or Top Gear.

Rather, you get the option of bolstering the electrical performance of the car, add new graphics, ballistic door panels for the driver and passenger, and steel seat back inserts for the driver in case perps in the back become… agitated.

Traffic cops seize £250,000 Lamborghini

Traffic cops seize £250,000 Lamborghini

The driver of a £250,000 supercar was left standing by the side of the road after it was seized by police in Warwickshire. Traffic cops who pulled over the 217mph Lamborghini Aventador in Kenilworth town centre found that his licence had been revoked.

The driver, a man in his mid-30s, was summoned to appear in court at a later date. The question of whether he was driving with no insurance is still being investigated. He was left to make his own way home after a large crowd had gathered to watch.

Officers also discovered there were outstanding finance payments on the 6.5-litre V12 car – one of only 4,000 ever built – and which can do 0-60mph in under three seconds. It will now be sold at auction to pay off the finance company.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather and singers Justin Bieber and Kanye West and are among some of the car’s celebrity owners. Pc Richard Prior, of Warwickshire Police’s Operational Patrol Unit, said: “I’ve pulled over a Bentley Continental before, but this tops it.”

Pc Prior and a colleague were on routine patrol on Wednesday afternoon when their marked car’s ‘automatic number plate recognition’ system (ANPR) flagged up the Lamborghini.

“We saw him on the main road through Kenilworth and stopped him outsideKenilworth Castle,” said the officer. He pulled over straightaway. He got out and was very pleasant, very co-operative. He explained the car was not his. Said he had borrowed it.

“Our investigations showed his driving licence had been revoked by the DVLA. He said he didn’t know anything about it, but was unsurprisingly fine about it because it wasn’t his car.” Pc Prior added: “There was a joke about who would drive it back, but we got a professional recovery company to take it to a compound in Leamington.”

Driving licences can be revoked for medical reasons or for failing to keep personal details up-to-date.

Mercedes-Benz Unleashes New Supercar

Mercedes-Benz Unleashes New Supercar

New AMG-developed coupe comes in two power guises and is set to cost substantially less than the outgoing SLS in price.

Probably, if you purely take into account the rear quarters of the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT (the name Benz is omitted) supercar, revealed here in full for the first time.

While the rear window panes and lights bear some similarity to the Porsche 911, the rest of the GT is described by the chaps in Stuttgart as a new design language for Mercedes-Benz.

Intended to indirectly replace the SLS AMG — whose production has just ceased earlier this year — the GT shares the same two-seat, front-engine, rear-drive principle and aims to distract attention from anything like an Aston Martin Vantage, Audi R8 or precisely that 911 Carrera.

To make it more practical than the SLS, the GT comes with conventional doors and liftback-style boot. The aluminium body is sprung by usual double wishbones up front and multi-link at the rear.

Customised supercars belonging to wealthy Arab playboys line London’s most upmarket streets

Customised supercars belonging to wealthy Arab playboys line London's most upmarket streets

Expensive Arab-owned supercars – many of which have been expensively customised – have been spotted all over London’s most upmarket streets, and their drivers don’t think twice about parking on double yellow lines.

Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bugattis are among the cars seen cruising around west and central London this summer as rich Qataris, Saudis, Emiratis and Kuwaitis move to Britain to escape the Middle East’s baking mid-summer months.

Among the supercars spotted include a £2.5million premium LaFerrari, £2million Bugatti Veyron and £700,000 McLaren seen parallel parked on double yellow lines outside five-star Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge last night.

Gary Tolson, sales manager at luxury car dealership, Tom Hartley, said: ‘It is extremely unusual seeing four of the most expensive cars in the world all parked next to each other. Many of the supercars you see around central London at the moment have been modified with paint jobs costing anything up to £30,000. A lot of them have also been given different wheels.’

A £350,000 Rolls Royce Phantom, customised with a £30,000 chrome paint job and expensive wheels, was also seen outside The Dorchester in Mayfair. Mr Tolson said: ‘This one has been really pumped up with huge wheels and paintwork which would have cost thousands.’

It was parked next to a bright orange £300,000 Lamborghini Aventador and a £270,000 Rolls Royce Ghost. The luxury cars are flown distances of around 3,000 miles in planes such as the Qatar Airways Airbus A330.

Arab Supercar owners based in London transport cars for 20,000 pounds

Arab Supercar owners based in London transport cars for 20,000 pounds

Streets in London have lately been revving with power packed cars that bore Arab registration numbers. Rich Arab origin guys based in cooler London cities have reportedly taken a new way to flaunt their elite status by importing their supercars from their country. The import and transportation cost incurred by them is stated to be a staggering 20,000 Pounds!

As quoted to MailOnline by Daniel Hallworth, Managing director of Dan Car Logistics, “The Arabs often use agents to arrange their cars to be flown to the UK – and some of these guys can have two or three cars that they bring over for just one month.

Once here, they can legally drive it for up to two months.” The freight charges depend on car models that are being imported. Transporting a car each way like Ferrari or McLaren can cost up to £5,000, whereas a Bugatti Veyron would cost about £6,000 per journey.

The super flamboyant Arabs usually from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Kuwait choose airlines like Qatar Airways among others to fly-in their supercars 3000 miles away in London. The A300s with a cargo carrier is often used for the purpose as they have single row or a side-by-side configuration within both main and lower deck with up to 31 positions for each trip. The Arab owned supercars have been a common sight of London streets that is often seen parked or zipping around at high speeds.

‘Salt Water Powered’ Supercar Given Greenlight For EU Roads

'Salt Water Powered' Supercar Given Greenlight For EU Roads

NanoFlowCell are trying to launch a car that’s environmentally friendly with the unveiling of the Quart e-SportsLimousine prototype, which ‘captures the energy of an ocean’ with ‘salt-powered’ ion battery technology. The electric motor can do 0-60mph in only 2.8 seconds and potential top speeds of 236mph – faster than a McLaren P1 race car.

The vehicle, debuted at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, runs on state of the art flow cell batteries where chemical compounds (salts) are dissolved within two chambers and flow through a membrane between two electrodes. Ion exchange (when ion atoms are exchanged between two electrolyte solutions) occurs, providing an electrical charge.

Sea water (with sodium chloride salt, a compound of the metal Sodium and halogen Chlorine) is an example of an electrolyte, but the NanoFlowCell technology is a bit more complex than those salt water car kits for kids – with the batteries actually containing a mixture of metal salts and other ingredients.

“Flow cell are chemical batteries that combine aspects of an electrochemical accumulator with those of a fuel cell. Liquid electrolytes circulate through two separate cells in which a ‘cold burning’ takes place, during which oxidation and reduction processes happen in parallel and therefore produce electrical power for the drive train”, explains NanoFlowCell.

“The flow cell battery is a beacon of hope because it is an especially simple and effective storage medium for electrical energy”.

And after testing and inspection, the vehicle has been given the go-ahead to grace the roads of Germany and other European countries. Designed by inventor Nunzio La Vecchia, chief technical officer at Lichenstein-based NanoFlowCell AG living in Switzerland, the vehicle and technology could pave the way for a more green energy.

The car designer who turned a sailfish into a supercar

The car designer who turned a sailfish into a supercarThe car designer who turned a sailfish into a supercar

Frank Stephenson is design director of McLaren Automotive, the carmakers behind a range of highly prized, high-priced cars. While on holiday in the Caribbean, he noticed a sailfish on a wall in the resort where he was staying.

A man working there told Stephenson that he was proud to have caught the fish because it was so fast. Stephenson was intrigued – he began doing some research on the species to find out why it was so quick.

On the way back to London, Stephenson stopped off in Miami and went down to a local fishing village, where, in a stroke of luck, a local fisherman had just caught a sailfish. He bought it, sent it downtown to get it stuffed and eventually got it delivered to the scanning department of the McLaren Automotive aerodynamics laboratory in Surrey – where the carmakers set to work trying to learn the secrets of the super-speed fish’s abilities.

SIKH NUMBER PLATE FOR SALE S13NGH SINGH LASTNAME

The analysis revealed that the scales on the sailfish’s skin generate little vortices that result in the fish being enveloped in a bubble of air instead of denser water. This reduced drag allows the fish to move even faster. McLaren’s designers applied the same texture as the scales of the sailfish to the inside of the ducts that lead into the engine of their P1 hypercar.

This increased the volume of air going into the engine by 17%, improving the car’s efficiency: the P1 has hybrid engines creating 903 horsepower and thus needs large amounts of air pumped into the engine to help combustion and engine cooling.

The P1 also borrowed from the sailfish little ‘diplets’ on the torso of the fin where it meets the tail fin that the fish uses to straighten out the flow of pockets of air and water that move past it. This, Stephenson says, made the car more aerodynamic.

Nature has had millions of years to evolve its designs, says Stephenson, which is why he is trying to incorporate those tricks into his projects. “It just simply makes sense,” he says. “How can a lizard go upside down and stick to the surface for example? Well, if you can find out why, you can just apply that technology to the tyres of the car such that when the surfaces are wet, there’s no way that the car can slide.”
