3 Super Sports Cars





McLAREN P1



The McLaren P1 is a limited production plug-in hybrid supercar by English automotive manufacturer McLaren Automotive. The concept car debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Deliveries to retail customers began in the UK in October 2013. The entire P1 production of 375 units was sold out by November 2013.

It is considered to be the long-awaited McLaren F1 successor utilizing hybrid power and Formula 1 technology. It does not have the same three seat layout as its predecessor. The design of the headlights is also very similar to the shape of the McLaren logo. Just like the McLaren F1 road car of 1992, the McLaren P1 is a rear-wheel drive, mid-engine design that uses a carbon fibre monocoque and roof structure safety cage concept called MonoCage, which is a development of the MonoCell used in the current MP4-12C and MP4-12C Spider upgrade that came out in early 2012.





SPECIFICATION



The P1 features a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine similar to the engine found in the MP4-12C, but tuned to deliver 727 bhp and 719 Nm (531 lb ft) at 7500 rpm. Combined with an in-house developed electric motor, which produces 176 bhp and 260 Nm (192 lb ft), the P1 will have a total power and torque output of 916 PS (903 bhp) and 978 Nm (722 lb ft) respectively. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Power for the electric motor is stored in a 324-cell lithium-ion high density battery pack located behind the cabin. The battery can be charged by the engine or through plug in-equipment and can be fully charged in two hours. The car can be operated using either the petrol engine, the electric motor, or with a combination of the two, and has an all-electric range of at least 10 km (6.2 mi) on the combined European drive cycle with a max speed of 100 mph (160 km/h).
The P1 comes with Formula 1 derived features such as the Instant Power Assist System (IPAS), which will give an instant boost in acceleration via the electric motor, a Drag Reduction System (DRS) which operates the car's rear wing, thereby increasing straight line speed, and a KERS. 

Both of these features (IPAS, DRS) are operated via two buttons on the steering wheel.The P1 will go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds, and 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 16.5 seconds, making it a full 5.5 seconds faster than the McLaren F1. It completes a standing quarter mile in 9.8 seconds at 152 mph (245 km/h). Top speed is electronically limited to 217.5 mph (350 km/h), but could theoretically reach 239 mph (385 km/h) with the limiter removed. 

The P1 weighs 1,395 kg (3,075 lb), giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 647bhp/tonne. The P1 also features bespoke Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres and specially developed carbon-ceramic brakes from Akebono. It takes 6.2 seconds to brake from 186 mph (299 km/h) to standstill, during which it'll cover 246 metres. From 60 mph (97 km/h), it will cover 30.2 metres.

LAMBORGHINI VENENO




There are two models that we have all been awaiting to debut at Geneva. The first of those two models has been teased to the point that we pretty much already know what it will look like – the F70 by Ferrari – and the other has remained relatively mysterious. This mysterious model is the 50th anniversary vehicle from Lamborghini. Well, now the script has been flipped on its ear, as the official details on the new Veneno supercar have been released with just a few hours before its Geneva debut.

Like with all the other Lambo supercars, the new Venevo takes its name from the fighting arena: Veneno is one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls ever. In 1914 he wounded the famous torero José Sánchez Rodríguez during the bullfight in the arena Sanlúcar de Barrameda’s, Andalusia, Spain.

Even though we are sorry to do it, we have to start this good news with bad news: the new Lamborghini Veneno will be limited to only three units, and despite its huge price tag of €3 million ($3.9 million at the current exchange rates), the model is already sold out!

FERRARI LaFERRARI




After years of speculation, the successor of the legendary Ferrari Enzo is finally out. The supercar made its world debut today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it comes with a rather unexpected surprise: its name!

Previous rumors suggested the model could be called either F70 or F150, but Ferrari decided to go with something odd: LaFerrari! No, it is not a joke!

Why did the company make such a radical decision on the name? Well, the answer is offered by Ferrari’s President, Luca di Montezemolo himself who declared: "because it is the maximum expression of what defines our company – excellence." While we appreciate his answer, we still have to admit the name sounds a little bit silly.

Everything else on the new LaFerrari is also a big surprise, starting with its exterior design language and up to the innovative HY-KERS system used for the first time in a production version Ferrari.


SPECIFICATION



LaFerrari is the first mild hybrid from Ferrari, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent.LaFerrari's mid rear mounted 65° V12 Internal Combustion Engine has a 6.3 litre (6262 cc) capacity producing 800 PS (588 kW, 789 bhp) @ 9,000 rpm and 700 N·m (516 lb·ft) of torque @ 6,750 rpm, supplemented by a 163 PS (120 kW; 161 bhp) KERS unit (called HY-KERS), which will provide short bursts of extra power.

 Unlike conventional hybrid vehicles, in which either the electric motor or the internal combustion engine is running, the KERS system adds extra power to the combustion engine's output level for a total of 963 PS (708 kW; 950 bhp) and the total torque generated by the V12 ICE together with the electric motor being over 900 N·m (664 lb·ft).Ferrari claims CO2 emissions of 330 g/km. The engine's bore and stroke is 94×75.2 mm with a compression ratio of 13.5:1 and a specific power output of 128 metric horsepower per litre. It is connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and the car is rear-wheel drive.

The car is equipped with carbon-ceramic Brembo discs on the front (398 mm) and rear (380 mm), with the tires measuring 265/30 R 19 and 345/30 R 20 respectively.

LaFerrari utilises a carbon fibre monocoque structure developed by Ferrari's F1 technical director Rory Byrne, with a claimed 27 percent more torsional rigidity and 22 percent more beam stiffness than the Enzo.It has a double wishbone suspension in the front and a multi-link suspension in the rear.
LaFerrari has a number of electronic controls including ESC stability control, high performance ABS/EBD anti-lock braking system/electronic brake balance, EF1-Trac F1 electronic traction control integrated with the hybrid system, E-Diff 3 third generation electronic differential, SCM-E Frs magnetorheological damping with twin solenoids (Al-Ni tube), and active aerodynamics to enable maximum performance.
