Bugatti reveals real life 'Gran Turismo' supercar

Petrolheads will be weeping salty tears of joy at the sight of Bugatti’s newest motor.

And gaming fans will have something to cheer about as well, as it turns out the new concept car from the manufacturer was inspired by Gran Turismo.

It’s called the Bugatti Vision Grand Turismo and was first created inside the blockbuster racing franchise that runs on Sony’s PlayStation consoles.

The in-game car was the first glimpse, but now Bugatti has revealed a real life version made out of carbon fibre and metal.

Whilst it’ll never reach it to production, the Vision Gran Turismo concept hints at what we might see from the next supercar it produces.

“Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is the first stage on a new journey that Bugatti is embarking on following the successful completion of its Veyron chapter, and which will culminate in the unveiling of the next Bugatti super sports car in the not too distant future,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, president of Bugatti.

Whoops! Lamborghini owner trying to sell his $280k V12 supercar smashes into a tree during a test drive

Whoops! Lamborghini owner trying to sell his $280k V12 supercar smashes into a tree during a test drive

What should have been the test drive of a lifetime ended up being the scare of a lifetime instead after a car accident in Sydney.

As supercars go, a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is up there with the best of them, but when the driver lost control of the car on New South Head Road, Vaucluse, a car enthusiast’s dream soon turned into a nightmare.

The car’s driver and owner lost control on a bend and crashed the luxury motor into a nearby tree – uprooting it – and badly damaging the right front, right wing and back of the V12 supercar.

It couldn’t have happened at a worse possible time because the car was being driven by the Lamborghini owner who was hoping to sell it at the time of the crash to a man who was a passenger in the vehicle.

The supercar is valued at $280,000, but instead of putting in an offer for the vehicle the passenger ended up being treated by paramedics for shock instead.

Both of the men were uninjured but were treated for shock at the scene.

Introducing The Supercar For Superyachts

Introducing The Supercar For Superyachts

It’s a given that a number of the gleaming vessels on show at this month’s Monaco Yacht Show (taking place from September 23 to 26) will feature helicopters on deck – in superyacht circles having a helipad and complementary aircraft has become almost de rigueur. More likely then, to impress a roving billionaire eager to pick up a new boating accessory is a novel supercar created specifically for superyachts.

Launched by yachting company Camper & Nicholsons in collaboration with Briggs Automotive Company, the Marine Edition Mono is capable of reaching 170mph and can go from 0-60mph in just 2.7 seconds yet weights only 580kg. That relatively light weight means it can be hoisted fairly easily onto land and deployed to discover the surrounding streets when the yacht docks, but for superyacht owners who prefer to spend their time at sea its main purpose could simply be to serve as the ultimate showboating frivolity.

To make sure it looks the part wherever it ends up, owners can customise the interior and exterior to match their yachts’ colour schemes. The seat will be made to measure, for example, and the name and port of the superyacht with which the car is associated will be etched on the car’s rear wing.

In response to the unconventional perch the Marine Edition Mono will occupy, other technical features have been subtly adapted too. Protective coatings on the car’s body and all exposed metallic components will protect against salty air and water and corrosion. Handily, the car is also supplied with a carbon-fibre crane arm that is compatible with all yacht crane systems and which can be used to transport the automobile onto solid ground.

Though none of the newly launched made-to-order cars has been commissioned as yet, Camper & Nicholsons says that the response has been enthusiastic: “We have had a great response and are in discussions with several interested parties.” Those who do wish to purchase one of the cars can expect to pay about £500,000 (plus delivery and VAT where applicable). The cars will be designed and built in Liverpool and manufacturers expect they will be able to produce one car per month if built to their standardised specification.

Driver of £1m Bugatti Veyron supercar asks boys for a push after car breaks down in street

Driver of £1m Bugatti Veyron supercar asks boys for a push after car breaks down in street

The driver of a plush £1m supercar was left looking red-faced when his car broke down – and he was forced to ask passing lads for a push.

His Bugatti Veyron ground to a halt as its owner drove through an exclusive area of Knightbridge.

It was snapped being pushed by eager helpers through the luxurious area – but the driver struggled to get it going again.

The cream and maroon car has been quite an attraction in London, with plenty of pictures circulating social media.

On Monday when his car was given a parking ticket from a traffic warden for resting on double yellow lines.

The Bugatti Veyron can hit top speeds of 253mph.

The Super Sport version is recognised by the Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 267.7 mph.

The capital has seen a massive boom in the number of Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bugattis on its streets as rich Qataris, Saudis, Emiratis and Kuwaitis move to Britain to escape the Middle East’s baking mid-summer months.

This Lamborghini must be a contender for Britain’s rudest number plate

This Lamborghini must be a contender for Britain's rudest number plate

So we’ve all had moments when taking a spin in the car drives us crazy but here’s one motorist you don’t want to get on the wrong side of.

This guy looks like he may very well have more money than sense.

We’ve heard of lots of bizarre private number plates that mean a lot of things to a lot of people – but F4K YO takes the biscuit.

What makes it all the more unusual is that this bright purple Lamborghini costs an astonishing £175,000 brand new.

It’s also surprising the Police haven’t had a few words with the owner as it is an offence to swear in a public place.

Section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 makes it an offence to use threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or to display any writing, sign or other visible representation which is threatening, abusive or insulting or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

Parked up off one of the busiest and trendiest streets in London, the Kings Road in Chelsea, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera supercar has a powerful 5.2-litre V10 engine which gives a whopping a top speed of 202mph and 0-60 in 3.5sec.

So perhaps it’s just that the cops haven’t caught up with them yet!

Australian police appear to have a very expensive, very fast supercar

Australian police appear to have a very expensive, very fast supercar

The New South Wales police force may have watched The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift one too many times.

On Friday, the Instagram account of THE-LOWDOWN.com, an automotive-focused website, posted a photo of a pretty fancy sports car marked with police livery sitting on the back of a truck. The caption? Simply, “Game over.”

Spotted by news.com.au journalist Harry Tucker, who identified it as a McLaren 650S, the highly-powerful British car is apparently worth around A$450,000.

In his driving test for The Verge, Chris Ziegler reported the devastating experience of running over a pothole in another low-slung McLaren 650S. “The entire car shuddered with a smack that woke me more effectively than the La Colombe coffee I’d just finished,” he wrote. “It echoed in my brain for the next several hours. I can still hear it. No one wants to hear that sound; it’s the sound of sadness.”

Sadly, it became apparent there will be no lucky coppers cruising the streets in this thing. NSW Police have confirmed it’s only a sponsored vehicle that will not be in operation.

Rich kid set his Ferrari 458 Italia on fire because he wanted a new one

Rich kid set his Ferrari 458 Italia on fire because he wanted a new one

A Swiss millionaire officially has the brattiest child in the world. The man’s unnamed 20-year-old son intentionally set his $400,000 Ferrari 458 Italia on fire, hoping to get insurance money to buy the Italian company’s newer, better, faster model.

According to theNew York Daily News, the poor kid just wanted a new Ferrari and was too afraid to tell his father that his 458 was a horrible car in his eyes and that he desperately needed a new one, so he took things into his own hands.

Let’s just take a second to think about the horrible situation the kid was in — not only was his Ferrari no longer the newest, best model he could buy, but he was only receiving $13,000 a month in allowance money. Oh, and the fact he only has 14 other cars, including peasant models like a Lamborghini. I mean, did he have any other option?

Lucky for him, he met a Ferrari salesman who recommended that because his current Ferrari wouldn’t cover the costs of the new one, he should just destroy it and get the insurance company to pay it off.

So the kid, who is as equally as intelligent as the Ferrari salesman, then went out and hired two people, for close to $20,000 each to take his car through the nearby Swiss border into Germany and set it on fire. He even went and got a relaxing massage while this was all happening so he would have an alibi.

But unfortunately for our unlucky and hard-done-by 20-year-old, the whole act of arson was caught by pesky security cameras. Darn you security companies!

So now, his Ferrari has been completely destroyed, he’s getting 22 months probation and a $44,000 fine and he only has 14 cars left.
