STUNNING HYPERCARS FOR 2020– Insanely Magnificent!
A decade or so ago, the term "hypercar" had yet to supersede the word "supercar" in denoting automotive supremacy. And then came Bugatti's barrier-shattering Veyron in 2005, boasting more than 1000 horsepower and a 253-mph top speed. Since then, every decade or so we get a new breed of hypercars that hit the scene and it seems this year is the start of the next era with the following stunning hypercars.
Ferrari F8 Tributo
The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the new mid-rear-engined sports car that represents the highest expression of the Prancing Horse’s classic two-seater berlinetta. It is a car with unique characteristics and, as its name implies, is an homage to the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history.
The F8 Tributo features state-of-the-art aerodynamics, integrating innovations and expertise developed thanks to the company’s involvement in the GT and Challenge championships. The solutions have been honed to create a series-production mid-rear-engined berlinetta with the highest level of performance available.
Unveiled shortly before the Geneva Motor Show in March, the F8 Tributo is designed to blend the everyday usability of the old 488 with a level of power surpassing that of the track-honed 488 Pista.
The car’s name is a “tribute” to its 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, which Car magazine describes as the “serial winner of International Engine of the Year gongs”.
Aside from a notable power upgrade, Ferrari has installed new particulate filters to the engine to meet strict European and Chinese emissions regulations, the magazine says.
Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder
The Huracán EVO represents the natural evolution of the most successful V10 in Lamborghini history. It is the result of fine-tuning and consolidation which involves the already existing features and performance of Huracán, combined with the development of new solutions in terms of efficiency and design. But overall this vehicle stands out for its ability to anticipate the moves and satisfy the desires of the driver, in harmony with the Lamborghini DNA.
The Huracán EVO was developed to “amplify your daily routine” by anticipating the needs of the driver, making the day-to-day experience behind the wheel unique and totally personal. A state-of-the-art control system and innovative touchscreen easily manage the car’s functions and entertainment system. This, combined with dazzling aerodynamic design, elevate the performance and driving emotions to unprecedented levels.
The design of the Huracán EVO does not present a radical change in the original iconic shape and proportions, rather it represents a natural evolution that introduces sophisticated aerodynamic solutions, while remaining faithful to the iconic Lamborghini design. The front bumper adopts unmistakable Lamborghini design cues such as signature Y-shape stylistic elements, bonnet lines inspired by the Countach, skirt air ducts reminiscent of the Murciélago, and high-mounted exhaust tailpipes that recall the highest performing models of the Lamborghini range.
Before the details, the name. Jesko is Christian von Koenigsegg’s father, the man who helped him set up a supercar company when he was a skint 22-year old with a dream, and has supported him every step of the way. Now 80 years old, this is Christian’s way of thanking him. It certainly beats chocolates and a card. Better still, the name was kept a secret from Jesko until the car’s unveil at the Geneva show.
The Koenigsegg Jesko is basically the vehicular equivalent of the word absurd, with a combined 1600 hp and a claimed top speed of greater than 278 mph. Its aerodynamic carbon-fiber bodywork is riddled with air intakes, dive planes, and is bookended by an enormous rear wing. As the successor to the incredible Koenigsegg Agera RS, the Jesko will be the company's fastest and most technologically advanced car when deliveries begin.
The Jesko develops crazy power courtesy of a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 that makes 1600 hp—on E85 gasoline—and 1106 lb-ft of torque. That earth-shattering output is funneled through a rapid-shifting nine-speed multi-clutch automatic transmission. Koenigsegg calls this energetic gearbox the Light Speed Transmission (LST). The Jesko rides on a cutting-edge suspension, which features adaptive dampers that help control high-speed balance. It also has a rear-wheel-steering system for improved agility and stability at all speeds.
A revolution in automotive performance, design and technical collaboration is revealed with the Pininfarina Battista, the world’s first luxury electric hyper performance GT. Delivering on a long-held Pininfarina family dream and a new target of zero emissions with extreme power, the Battista is the first solely Pininfarina-badged car and delivers unprecedented performance. The trio of beautiful Battista design models presented as part of the hypercar’s World Premiere in Geneva represent a new pinnacle of desirability for electric cars, stylishly resolving the paradox of beauty and performance in a pure, elegant and timeless Italian design.
When it arrives, the Battista will be the most powerful car ever designed and built in Italy and it will deliver a level of performance that is unachievable today in any road-legal sports car featuring internal combustion engine technology. Faster than a current Formula 1 race car in its 0 -100 km/h sub-two second sprint, and with 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm torque on tap, the Battista will combine extreme engineering and technology in a zero emissions package.
The Pininfarina Battista’s place in automotive history is defined by its name. It is the first in a range of purely electric, zero-emissions, luxury cars solely branded Pininfarina.
Never before has a new brand and its first car been launched with such an emotive past, relevance for the present, and potential for the future – the Battista embodies timeless design as a piece of art.
A pure fusion of science and art in automotive form. The Speedtail is McLaren’s first ever Hyper-GT. The most aerodynamically efficient car ever. And the fastest McLaren to date. With a pioneering 1070PS hybrid powertrain at its core. It brings together unprecedented levels of innovation and elegance to create a new benchmark in automotive design. And offers owners extraordinary opportunity for bespoke personalization.
Aston Martin Valhalla
The Aston Martin Valhalla will be the British brand's title for its upcoming mid-engined hypercar. The name comes from Norse mythology and refers to the place where dead warriors go on in the afterlife. The mythical moniker replaces the less evocative AM-RB 003 name from earlier concepts for this vehicle.
The Valhalla will pack power befitting its powerful name by using a turbocharged V6 and battery-electric hybrid system. Aston Martin isn't revealing the output yet, but rumors put the figure at roughly 1,000 horsepower (746 kilowatts).
"Aston Martin model names always attract a lot of attention. They do so because they invariably capture an emotion or tell a story," company boss Andy Palmer said in the announcement of the model name. Like the Valkyrie, the Valhalla stems from Aston Martin's partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and famed Formula One car engineer Adrian Newey. He incorporates a Flex-Foil rear wing that's able to alter the amount of downforce that the aerodynamic element creates without changing its angle of attack. The piece allegedly doesn't create drag, turbulence, or wind noise. The vehicle also features entirely carbon fiber construction that allegedly keeps the weight to just 2,976 pounds (1,350 kilograms).
As with the mythological Valhalla, the new hypercar won't be something for most mere mortals because the company will build just 500 of them.
Bugatti La Voiture Noire
A pioneering spirit, passion for perfection and the desire to continually redefine its limits have been the key characteristics of BUGATTI since it was founded 110 years ago. None of the brand’s masterpieces reflect these values more impressively than the Type 57 SC Atlantic. Created by Ettore Bugatti’s eldest son Jean, the only four Atlantics ever created stand for pure elegance and sophistication.
With its homage to the fourth, all-black Atlantic, missing since the Second World War, BUGATTI is bringing the speed, technology, luxury and aesthetics of an icon into a new era. But the customized creation of “La Voiture Noire” is far more than a modern interpretation of the ghost of the gran turismo. “La Voiture Noire” is a tribute to BUGATTI’s own history, a manifesto of the BUGATTI aesthetic and a piece of automotive haute couture.
“The Atlantic is one of the icons of BUGATTI’s rich history. At the time, this coupé was unique in its elegance, quality and performance, and it remains so today. A luxurious hyper sports car. For us, both an inspiration and obligation at the same time,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of BUGATTI.
In terms of exclusivity, performance and luxury, the new “La Voiture Noire” is every inch the equal of Jean Bugatti’s masterpiece. It is the perfect manifestation of BUGATTI’s cornerstones: “dynamic, luxury and elegance”.
