Hennessey Venom F5



Step aside Koenigsegg One:1, it looks like you’ve met your match. Car world, meet the Hennessey Venom F5, successor to the record breaking Venom GT. As if 270 mph and 0-200mph in 14.5 seconds wasn’t fast enough – according to Hennessey, the F5 will not only trump the top speed records of the GT but also the acceleration as well. This new breed of hypercar is all about one thing: Speed.

Sticking to the traditional route of power train (as opposed to the hybrids such as the P1 and 918), the F5 will have a twin turbo V8 that could potentially boast up to or exceeding 1400bhp, all the while still remaining under 1300kg. And the best is still yet to come, as it will be available with both a single clutch paddle shift and a traditional manual transmission! Finally, a company that took note of the fact that some people still fancy a good old manual gearbox!

Cadillac ATS-V.R Race Car



Would you believe us if we said Cadillac is going to compete head to head against purebreds Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes and BMW?

Nobody would normally, but looking at what Cadillac has revealed last week makes us think otherwise. The All American company has more than one trick up its sleeve, and aims to prove it once more on the track. After separating from its mother-company; GM, Cadillac now has the full control to potentially show us what they are made of by releasing this 600HP ATS-V.R.

Yes you read it right, a 600 horsepower, 520 foot-pound of torque, track-ready monster that will go up against cars like the Ferrari 458 GT3, Mercedes SLS AMG GT3, McLaren 650S GT3. To achieve such results, the engineers have tuned the 3.6L biturbo V6 from the ATS-V, installed a race suspension, bigger intercoolers, and the most visible change being the body: widened, lightened, lowered, it bears a massive aero package that includes an oversized wing, a front splitter and a massive hood vent yet still screams Cadillac in appearance.

Koenigsegg One:1 – The Perfect Equation



For over 2 decades, Christian von Koenigsegg has pushed the limits of designing hyper-cars, and his most recent masterpiece the Koenigsegg One:1 is a culmination of this experience.

The Koenigsegg One:1 predecessor platform Koenigsegg Agera R wis by every standard, an engineering masterpiece, and a remarkable milestone for the company, but for Christian, it was not enough. Koenigsegg has kept doing what it’s best at; pushing the limits of design and materials engineering. Despite all doubting critics, in 2014, the company released this latest Sweedish monster which delivers a whopping 1360 PS, which equates to 1341 horsepower against a curb weight of 1360kg; hence the moniker One:1. One horsepower per Kilogram has always been the holy grail of automotive design.
