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.

If Darth Vader Had A Car…

If Darth Vader Had A Car...

If Darth Vader had a car, this concept by Ondrej Jirec would be it. Jirec is a Czech student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Its name is the Cadillac Estill, a futuristic super car concept that, according to Jirec, links to the history of the Cadillac brand but is not retro.

Here’s how he describes it:

“The desired result was to create a concept that maintains clues from the history of the Cadillac brand and introduces a futuristic and fresh vision. The history clues were a fuselage suspended between two long body sides – a good example is the 1970 Cadillac Eldorado.

“Taking this pure form study, stripping down from all details, and taking it as a building theme for the whole concept, those were the main inspiration for the development of this concept.

“The interior layout is built around the driver experience. The passenger seat is pushed slightly back so the driver can reach the feeling of being in a true race car, inspired by the Cadillac Le Mans heritage.”

Ondrej Jirec received a Mr. Otis and Mrs. Bettina Chandler full endowed scholarship from 2008 to 2013 and has worked at General Motors and Honda R&D in California, Aston Martin in the UK, and Stile Bertone in Torino, Italy.

First 2015 Ford Mustang GT Sells For $300k

First 2015 Ford Mustang GT Sells For $300k

The rights to the very first 2015 Ford Mustang GT was sold to the highest bidder at an auction in Arizona for $300,000.

The final bid was made by Sam Pack, a car collector and Ford Motor Company dealer from Texas, the proceeds of which will go to benefit diabetes support group JDRF.

However obviously the first production 2015 Mustang GT has not even been built yet! The version on display was a pre-production unit if you were wondering.

This means Pack will still be able to select the colour of the car as well as other options. On top of this, the team involved in the 2015 Mustang’s design and development will sign the car in appreciation of the donation to JDRF.

The new Mustang will initially be offered in three flavours: base V-6, mid-level turbo four and range-topping V-8, with the latter being the Mustang GT you see pictured.

Peak output from its 5.0-liter V-8 will hover somewhere around 420 horsepower and 396 pound-feet of torque.

Concept To Reality: The 918 Spyder

Porsche 918 Spyder Concept

The official announcement has finally arrived: Porsche will produce the 918 Spyder in “limited series production.”

When the Porsche 918 Spyder concept was revealed just before the 2010 Geneva auto show in March, it was assumed that the car was bound for production.

At that point Porsche had never shown a concept car without putting it on the road, and Porsche suggested that this rule wouldn’t change under new VW ownership.

Details of the car’s volume and positioning are still unknown, but we would expect the former to be very low and the latter to be very high. The 918 Spyder will be Porsche’s flagship, the brand’s attempt to set the high-water mark for dual-source power.

The 918 Spyder is a performance hybrid with four distinct driving modes and an extra, KERS-type overboost feature like that found on some F1 cars in 2009.

It is motivated by various combinations of its 500-plus-hp, 3.4-liter V-8 (derived from the RS Spyder LMP2 car) and three lithium-ion-powered electric motors—two on the front axle and one integrated into the transmission—that make a total of 218 hp.

Interestingly, the 918 Spyder can function as both a parallel or a series hybrid, as the electric front axle can propel the car on its own, or in conjunction with the engine.

In its thriftiest mode, Porsche states a European-cycle figure of 78 mpg. In race mode, expect a top speed in the neighborhood of 200 mph and a Carrera GT–beating Nürburgring lap time of 7:30.

Kia’s GT4 Stinger Sports Car Of The Future

Kia GT4 Stinger

Kia has revealed the GT4 Stinger, which represents its vision of the sports car of the future, describing it as “the brand’s most aggressive concept car ever.”

The car is a departure from the production models Kia is known for and represents a new style of design for the manufacturer.

The ‘tiger nose” grille at the front of the four-seat coupe has a surround that glows white and is flanked by vertical LED headlamps. The clamshell bonnet has chrome accents as well as bulges for the 20in alloys.

For those of you already familiar with Kia, the Stinger is the same length as the Kia Cee’d at 4,310mm but lower and wider with a shorter wheelbase.

The GT4 features strong but lightweight carbon fibre parts – the aluminum wheels have carbon fibre inserts and there is a carbon fibre insert fitted underneath the front bumper to help improve aerodynamics.

If the car goes into production, its main rival will most likely be the Toyota GT 86 as both cars have the same size engine and are of similar weight.
