China’s First Supercar debuts on the Shanghai Auto Show

This is the Qiantu K50 Event!, China’s first home-grown electric supercar, which debuted on the Shanghai Auto Show. The Qiantu K50 Event! will be launched on the Chinese car market in 2016, priced around 700.000 yuan, which is about the same as the Tesla Model S costs in China.

The Qiantu K50 Event! is based on the CH Auto Event concept that debuted last year on the Beijing Auto Show. Production was confirmed in October last year. The company that will build the cars is called Qiantu Qiche (前途汽车), which literally translates as ‘Future Auto’.

CH Auto, a major Chinese automotive design & development company, is the largest shareholder of Qiantu Qiche.

Qiantu had three cars on show: a racy variant with a shipload of extra wings and two standard cars that look pretty much like last year’s concept. The Qiantu K50 Event! is powered by an electric motor with an output of 400hp and 650nm, sending power to the rear wheels.

Claimed specifications: top speed of 200 kilometers per hour, 0-100 in five seconds. Range 200 kilometer. Battery: 41.1kWh lithium-ion. Charging takes six hours on 220V. Curb weight is 1685 kilo.

Dubai Police supercar tops list of fastest law-enforcement vehicles

Dubai Police supercar tops list of fastest law-enforcement vehicles

Police in Dubai have no excuse to not catch a speeding motorist as they have the world’s fastest street-legal car in their arsenal, the Bugatti Veyron, which has topped a list of fastest law-enforcement vehicles in emerging countries.

Capable of hitting a top speed of 407kph, the 16-cylinder Bugatti Veyron churns out 1,200 horsepower, allowing it to reach 100kph in just 2.5 seconds, making it able to catch any speeding motorist. The vehicle is the jewel in the crown of Dubai Police’s fleet of luxury cars, which they use to promote their image and to encourage interaction with the public.

Dubai Police chief Maj Gen Khamis Al Muzeina said previously that the force uses the cars to enhance its presence at landmark sites, where a majority of tourists frequent, adding that the police stay up-to-date with the latest cars and technology to ensure the best safety and security services.

The force also has a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 in its ranks, which is second on the list, a supercar that has recently been acquired by Vietnam as the Southeast Asian country looks to boost its ability to serve and protect. The Aventador, a feature in several police fleets around the world, tops out at 349kph, making other high-speed sports cars drivers think twice before putting the pedal to the metal.

Exotic car maker Lamborghini finds itself again on the list at number three with the Gallardo LP560-4. Accelerating up to 100kph in 3.7 seconds, police in Indonesia are only showing off this beauty in a shopping mall at the moment. If it ever hits the streets, the Gallardo will be capable of maxing out at 330kph.

A Gulf police force crops up again on the list as Qatari cops have a Porsche Panamera, which comes fourth. The Panamera, the country’s fastest police cruiser, can climb to a speed of 318kph. And with the Qatari government holding a stake in the German high-end car maker, Porsches make up the bulk of the nation’s fleet of cruisers.

Coming in at number five is the Chevrolet Camaro, which Mexican police patrol their streets with at speeds of up to 249kph. Although the Camaro is well behind the blistering speeds of the Bugatti Veyron, those on the wrong side of the law should take note that it can accelerate from 0-100kph in only 4.9 seconds.

Superyacht with a helipad, submarine storage… and its own infinity pool

Superyacht with a helipad, submarine storage... and its own infinity pool

When the ultra-rich splash out on a new superyacht, they expect it to come with all the latest accessories. And that’s exactly what they get with the 223ft Explorer, which comes with its own helipad, infinity pool and plenty for space for supercar and jetski storage.

With space for 12 lucky guests on board, the concept yacht from British yacht designer Tony Castro is the ultimate toy for the extremely wealthy and has been dubbed the ‘Range Rover of the seas’.

It was designed to withstand any weather conditions and is sturdy enough to circumnavigate the globe – all while looking incredibly stylish, of course. When it comes to transporting all those extras any cruising millionaire needs to hand, there’s plenty of space for all of them.

The company explains: ‘With a large carrying capacity for toys and tenders, she is capable of carrying a helicopter in a climate controlled garage, twin limo tenders, car, submarine, jetskis, paddleboards and a variety of inflatables water toys.’

But of course, the life of the ultra-wealthy comes at a cost. According to Tony Castro Design, the superyacht costs approximately 40million euros (around £29million/$43million) to build, which means it is likely to cost even more to purchase.

While the yacht has been designed with ‘rugged utilitarian-looking aesthetics’, it is actually a sumptuous retreat at sea. For the 12 guests, there is space on the yacht for 15 crew, ensuring there is nothing always someone on hand to make sure the journey goes smoohtly.

The designers explain: ‘Her unique layout holds a full beam enclosed observation deck with opening roof, cinema, beach club, sauna, scuba diving pool, gymnasium, pool, wine cellar and ample space to accommodate a total of 12 guests.’

And of course, there are all the other luxurious finishing touches you would expect to find on board. The guests of honour can enjoy accommodation in the Master Cabin or VIP suite, while others can choose between four other double guest cabins.

There are also plenty of ‘terrace’ area, with sunloungers, giving the impression of sitting on the beach as the water laps the sands. In reality, the wooden areas just out into the sea with ladders down so guests can take a dip to cool off whenever they wish.

And the entire design is offset with panoramic windows offering views across the ocean.

Explore Singapore in an Uber supercar

Explore Singapore in an Uber supercar

In cities such as London and New York, the taxi app Uber has already radically altered the local transport network. In the former, black-cab drivers have blocked the streets in protest against the app; in the latter, Uber services are more prolific than the city’s iconic yellow cabs.

Now the service is set to make its mark on the roadways of Singapore too, but in an entirely different way. In place of the Priuses that are most associated with the service elsewhere, Uber users in the city can now have the option of booking supercars for their journeys.

Upon requesting “supercar” on the app, it will be possible for customers to request that either a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder or Maserati GranTurismo Coupe takes them to their destination. For now the cars are being made available on a trial basis, until May 20, in collaboration with local company Dream Drive.

Efficient though public transport options in the city are, the service is likely to prove popular with tourists who wish to explore the city in an unconventional way. The base fare to travel by Lamborghini is $200 (£100), which also covers the first 15 minutes of passengers’ journeys; a $7 (£3.50) charge will be applied for each additional minute in the car. For those travelling by Maserati, the base far is $165 (£82), which again includes the first 15 minutes of travel and is subject to an additional $7 charge per subsequent minute in transit.

Ultimate GTI supercar hits GT6 world

Ultimate GTI supercar hits GT6 world

Volkswagen, the inventor of the GTI, has launched the latest descendant of the original hot hatch on the digital race circuit.

Gran Turismo 6 fans can now download the VW GTI Supersport, a 370kW digital supercar. A 635Nm VR6 TSI, seven-speed double-clutch transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive take the virtual Veedub from 0-100km in 3.6 seconds and on to more than 300km/h.

MUSLIM NUMBER PLATE FOR SALE SAY111D SAYID SAYED FIRSTNAME

The basic shape is still a two-box hatch, but it’s been lowered, widened and body-kitted for a radical stance, with lots of carbon-fibre components to lower the centre of gravity and raise its power-to-weight ratio to hair-raising 295kW per ton.

Wide body flares provide homes for the special 20-inch alloys and ventilation ducts for the rear brakes, while a big roof-edge spoiler and rear diffuser deliver the downforce for fast lap-times.

Download it to your Playstation in silver, red, blue or white – and don’t be surprised if you see something very similar ‘in the metal’ at the Worthersee GTI-Treffen gathering in May 2015.

Britain’s top supercar saleswoman Saba Amari reveals tricks of selling dream motors

Britain's top supercar saleswoman Saba Amari reveals tricks of selling dream motors

A new Channel 4 series has been shining a light on the UK’s billion-pound supercar industry, where some of the best salespeople can turn over millions of pounds of profit every year.

While mere mortals might only dream of getting behind the wheel of some of these ultimate driving machines, a select portion of the world’s population are trading them like toys.

The supercar business is unashamedly male-dominated – these are the original boys toys, after all.

Yet one woman is breaking the mould, with a little help from her car-loving husband.

Preston-based Saba Syed and husband Sheikh Amari have been married for 12 years and run one of the country’s leading supercar dealerships exporting dream cars across the globe.

While Sheikh buys the cars, Saba does the selling and isn’t afraid to be a woman in a man’s world. In fact, she thinks her gender helps her sell more cars.

In Supercars: The Million Pound Motors, she says: ‘It just feels great to be that one person who’s not the stereotype.’

Saba says that she can tell straight away what a customer wants: ‘My focus is on the lifestyle choice. I firmly believe that anyone who comes in knows whether they want to buy or not.

‘You live once, you work hard. They’re buying into a lifestyle of luxury.’

Although the premium car market might traditionally be seen as something that men enjoy more, Saba says more and more women are coming into the showroom.

Video: Meet the M-Zero, India’s First Supercar

Video: Meet the M-Zero, India's First Supercar

Introducing Mean Metal Motors – an automotive start-up which is working on India’s first supercar. Called the M-Zero, it has 4 teams from 4 countries working on turning this dream in to reality.

While the teams in Portugal and Italy take care of body and styling, the UK team looks after the simulations and analysis. The remaining one i.e. the team in India, is responsible for the engine, transmission, aerodynamics, vehicle dynamics, electronics, and energy storage systems.

The M-Zero will get a light-weight carbon-fibre monocoque tub chassis, which will give provide the required rigidity. Though it will be designed by these folks at Mean Metal Motors, it will then be given to various parts manufacturers for production.

About the engine – it will be a parallel hybrid mid-engined supercar. Sarthak Paul, founder and director, said they’re planning on getting either a 4.0-litre AMG V8 bi-turbo or the 4.8-litre NA V10, though the procurement process is yet to be initiated. Sarthak adds that they are targeting the 500+bhp mark for the power output.

Since this is a parallel hybrid supercar, there will be an electric motor involved. The electric motor will be capable of producing approximately 250bhp, which, in turn, will give the M-Zero a combined power tally of 750+bhp. The total torque developed will be 900Nm.

Mean Metal Motors is currently looking for funds, and intends to raise $7 million in the first round of funding, which will help them make their first prototype. The manufacturing facility, sadly, will not be in India but in a Scandinavian country. Also, the market they’re looking at is Europe.

World’s Fastest Supercars Brave Rain and Mud for Annual ‘Secret’ Meetup

World's Fastest Supercars Brave Rain and Mud for Annual 'Secret' Meetup

Owners of some of the world’s most sought-after supercars braved torrential rain and mud to show off their vehicles at an annual invitation-only event.

A Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition – one of only five in the world – were among the 200 high-performance cars on show at the ‘Secret Supercar Meet’, held at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and Proving Ground, Leicestershire.

The get-together, organised by supercar owners club Supercar Driver, raised nearly £5,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospital in Sheffield, which offers care and support to children with shortened life expectancy.

Event organiser Adam Thorby, owner of Supercar Driver, said it was a testament to the group’s members that the cars were on show despite the weather, which could potentially damage the vehicles.

He said: ‘The turnout from members was staggering considering the forecast which was heavy rain all day. You would be lucky to see any one of those cars out in the height of summer, let alone the full group in less than ideal conditions.

‘It is testament to our members who had committed to the event and have bought their cars to use them, whatever the weather.’

The fleet of vehicles, which boast a combined worth more than £20million, also included a Mercedes AMG 300SL that was custom made for the Sultan of Brunei.

Meet Ultima’s £95k, 1020bhp supercar

Meet Ultima’s £95k, 1020bhp supercar

Meet the Ultima Evolution. Ultima is a British sports car maker, and it’s been selling its GT-R and Can Am models in both kit and pre-built forms for over 15 years now.

Its cars are very fast. So replacing them with something called ‘Evolution’ suggests something very very fast.

There are, in fact, 15 different power outputs available from a range of Chevrolet LS V8 engines. It’s available at over £38,000 for a 350bhp Evolution in kit form, or £65,995 if you’d rather it was built in the factory.

But it’s the £95,995 Evolution range-topper you really want to know about. It’s a 6.8-litre supercharged V8 that cranks out 1020bhp, more than a Bugatti Veyron. The Ultima is a tenth of Veyron money, though, and at 950kg, weighs half as much.

MUSLIM NUMBER PLATE FOR SALE SH14KH X SHAIKH SHEIKH X LASTNAME

The range-topping Evolution hits 60mph in 2.3 seconds, 0-100mph takes 4.9 seconds while 150mph is reached in 8.9 seconds. Just 0.3sec later it completes the quarter-mile at 156mph. Fast and Furious fans, this is a Ten Second Car.

There’s just one department in which the Ultima falls short: top speed. Its ‘gearing limited’ 240mph is well behind the Big Bug as well as Hennessey’s Venom GT, though probably sufficient for the rest of us.

While it comes with coupe and speedster-like convertible options, the Evolution looks little different to the GTR it replaces, posh new LED lights notwithstanding.

“The Ultima has taken its inspiration from the Group C Le Mans race cars and this is something we are very proud of indeed,” the company says. “The Ultima shape is something different and permanent compared to the ever-changing crop of latest supercars.”

Video: The Sound Of A Million Dollar Electric Supercar

Video: The Sound Of A Million Dollar Electric Supercar

Just eight 1,088 horsepower Rimac Concept_One have been built since early 2013, and only 80 more will be built at $1 million each. So what does a million-dollar electric car sound like at full-throttle? A lot cooler than you might think, actually.

Though it’s brief clip, it’s one of the few where the Concept_One has been able to really let loose, as most demonstrations of this electric supercar have been limited to public streets.

As you might imagine, flexing 1,088 horsepower and a downright inconsiderate 2,800 lb-ft of instant torque on a narrow thoroughfare is probably not the best idea. But on the track it’s a different story, and here we can really see the Concept_One ring it outs four electric motors.

Rimac claims the Concept_One can zoom from 0 to 60 MPH in just 2.8 seconds, even faster than the mighty Tesla P85D, which has become something of a measuring stick for speed these days.

A million bucks also gets you as much as 310 miles per charge, though Rimac has plans well beyond just a single supercar. The Croatian electric automaker wants to supply electric powertrain and drivetrain components to other automakers, and the technology Rimac is pioneering is even being used to improve the lives of the disabled.
