Super boys from India help design 900 HP supercar

Four students from India have acquired overnight fame after a futuristic car they designed as part of a team project earned rave reviews at an international motor expo in Switzerland.

The master’s students, three of whom are from Mumbai and one is from Pune, study at an Italian design school and collaborated with a magazine from the country on the project.

The sleek-looking car was designed by a group of 11 post-graduate students of Istituto Europeo di Design (IED), a design institute in Italy. Amongst the eleven team members are Marshin Bhatt (25), Rahul Sadwelkar (23), and Sunny Ramrakhiani (31) – all from Mumbai, and Gaurav Jagtap (26), from Pune.

Other designers hail from Poland, China, Israel, Taiwan, Iran and Mexico. The project was the final thesis project for the masters course in transportation design, in collaboration with Italian car magazine, Quattroruote, and garnered rave reviews at the Geneva Motor Show 2015.

“The theme given to us was to design a modern and futuristic car which uses techniques that could make sense in the future. We chose to design a car giving extra attention to safety features not only for the driver, but also pedestrians,” said Sadwelkar, who spoke to mid-day from Italy.

The 23-year-old moved to IED in 2010 and, after completing his bachelors in car design in 2013, joined the same institute for a master’s course on scholarship basis.

Bhatt, a student of Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology in Andheri, joined IED in 2013. “I used to sketch cars since I was in school and had my own collection of posters and magazines. Work is fun when you do what you always wanted to do,” he said, adding that his family is proud to see his dreams turn into reality. Bhatt hopes to move on to bigger challenges. “Who knows, I may open a design consultancy firm one day.”

Tesla’s Electric Supercar Has A Hidden ‘James Bond’ Mode

Tesla's Electric Supercar Has A Hidden 'James Bond' Mode

Elon Musk likes James Bond, so much so that he spent $1m on the famous Lotus Esprit that converts into a submarine.

Well to pay true homage to his favourite car the billionaire entrepreneur hid a rather special easter egg within the software for the Tesla Model S.

First buy a £49,900 Tesla Model S. Then press and hold the ‘Tesla’ button at the top of the giant display panel and you’ll be asked to enter an access code. Simply enter ‘007’ and then go to the Suspension settings page.

What was at one point a picture of your Model S is now a side view of the iconic Lotus. Oh and the ride height switch? That’s been changed to Depth (Leagues) of which there are two options for 10,000 or 20,000.

It goes without saying that this is all kinds of excellent. Tesla didn’t have to include the easter egg, in much the same way that the Model S sound system doesn’t have to go all the way up to ’11’ but it does, and that’s what matters.

Tesla aren’t the only company to include neat easter eggs in their products. Google’s Chromebook Pixel will delight you with a light show if you input the ‘Konami Code’ into the keyboard while Apple Maps in London now features a Big Ben that shows the real time and a London Eye that actually spins.

Diamonds come standard on 90 million yuan ‘Fast & Furious 7’ supercar

Diamonds come standard on 90 million yuan 'Fast & Furious 7' supercar

The appearance in Shanghai of the diamond-embedded supercar seen flying between buildings in the trailer for the new high-octane Hollywood action film Fast & Furious 7 set off a social media storm.

Photographs of the limited edition Lykan HyperSport, which were taken at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, were rapidly shared on social media app WeChat and the mainland’s Twitter-like microblog service.

Images of the luxury supercar, with a top speed of 385 km/h, showed its headlights, which have a row of diamonds embedded inside.

Including taxes and other costs, the Lykan HyperSport supercar, built by Lebanese carmaker W Motors could expect to attract a price of the 90 million yuan (HK$114 million) if sold in China.

Only seven of the supercars will be manufactured, and it is still uncertain where they will go on sale – or just who will be able to buy one.

The Lykan HyperSport is powered by a twin-turbo flat-six 3.7 litre engine. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds.

But those features were not the source of greatest attention – instead, it was the diamonds embedded in the car’s headlights. The headlights, with titanium LED blades, include 420 15carat diamonds for a “lavish and luxurious finish”, the carmaker’s website says.

Yet would-be buyers who take a shine to the diamonds can also choose to have other precious stones, including yellow diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds “integrated into the vehicle upon request”.

So far no one knows why the car was in Shanghai – and whether the appearance of the pictures on mainland social media is part of a marketing ploy to sell the car and promote the seventh film in the hit franchise, which will be released on the mainland on April 12. Universal Pictures, the producers of the film, could not be reached for comment yesterday.

“It could just be another case of Chinese tuhao [rich people] showing off their wealth,” one microblogger sniffed.

Too Far? McLaren seized after driver refuses to ‘spoil’ bodywork with a number plate

Too Far? McLaren seized after driver refuses to 'spoil' bodywork with a number plate

Has this supercar driver taken his love of bodywork a little too far? A driver had his McLaren confiscated by police because he could not bear to screw a numberplate into its bodywork.

Tsao He, 37, refused saying the order by officers in Taiwan would spoil the bodywork of his £270,000 McLaren.

The MP4-12C, which does 0-60mph in just 3.1 seconds, was seized when police saw it parked in a street bay without its front plate.

Mr He, 37, said: ‘The car looks so perfect, I just couldn’t bear to put holes in that beautiful body for something as ugly as a registration plate.

‘I told them it was registered and I showed them the plate, which I keep under my seat. I couldn’t believe it when they towed it away.’

Police in Taichung also gave him a £230 ticket for overstaying in the bay while they waited for a tow truck.

Mr He can apply for the car’s return after he fits a plate but faces a fine to cover the cost of towing it away.

A police spokesman said: ‘The car failed to display the proper documentation and has been confiscated.’

He added: ‘When the owner is ready to obey the law and fit a registration plate he can apply for the return of his car but he will face a fine appropriate to the cost of towing the vehicle.’

Video: Why Rain And Supercars Don’t Mix

Video: Why Rain And Supercars Don't Mix

Even for the most experienced of drivers, going fast in the rain is a risky activity. Th video below is pretty ugly, although we believe no one was hurt.

Not only that, but cars that have been very well designed to work with active aerodynamics can sometimes feel so planted in the dry that one could easily forget just how badly out of control they can get in the wet.

This video is a good example, as the McLaren 650S isn’t swerving or anything, and the driver appears to lose control for no reason.

We’re guessing that when the car in front of him moved over and the lane was cleared, he decided to speed up and simply put the pedal down a bit more than conditions allowed. It didn’t end well.

Aston Martin Vulcan Supercar Is For The Super Rich (And Not Even Road-Legal)

Aston Martin Vulcan Supercar Is For The Super Rich (And Not Even Road-Legal)

You won’t see it tearing down the motorway. Not just because there are only 24 in the world, or because they’re going to cost 24 lucky drivers about $4.5 million dollars each, but because the Aston Martin Vulcan is just too fast for the road and must be constrained to track driving.

The luxury super car boasts a 7.0-litre V12 engine and a 800-plus bhp powerplant. It is being called the most “intense” and “exhilarating creation” in Aston Martin’s car making history.

“Aston Martin Vulcan is, by its very nature, a rare and thrilling super car. Designed and engineered to deliver a genuinely bespoke driving experience that draws on our rich heritage, this car tailors its power and handling to both the capabilities of the driver and the characteristics of the track,” stated Aston Marin CEO Andy Palmer.

The super car was built with carbon fiber monocoque and the body was constructed by the car maker’s long-term specialist body engineering and manufacturing partner Multimatic. It features magnesium torque tube with a carbon fiber propeller shaft and Brembo racing calipers with carbon ceramic racing disc brakes.

Let’s put it this way: this car is so fast, so powerful, so crazy to drive that before driving it on their own, car owners are being offered an intensive track driver training program with advice and insight from racers, including Aston Martin Racing’s Le Mans-winning Darren Turner.

“We will be running a series of exclusive track-day events commencing in 2016 that will offer the opportunity for these customers to explore their driving capabilities, and the car’s performance potential, on some of the world’s most famous and glamorous race circuits,” said David King, Aston Martin’s director of special projects and motorsport.
