LykanHypersport: A Mouthful from the Middle East

lykanhypersport-car-3-425x232    Bugatti Veyron, Koenigsegg Agera, Nissan GTR, Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Zenvo ST1. All the aforementioned automobiles can be considered exotic, crazy, or if you want to be plain, fast. The ones I should mainly be listing are just the Koenigsegg and the Zenvo. They’re both are super cars. They are just a few of those small companies that spring up in countries far and wide seeking to make a super car worthy of their nation. So far, the Middle East seems to simply devour exotic cars like these. Of course having 5,000 millionaire princes certainly helps.

     So what does the Middle East have to do with these cars? Well, if you look to your left you’ll see the first real Arabian super car. It’s called the LykanHypersport. To me it would seem to have been endowed with Lamborghini like styling but I guess they’re trying to find somewhere to start. You’re probably asking, “It’s Arabian, what’s the cost?”. Well I’ll guess to say so much as a couple million. I mean you have to pay for what you’re receiving. 750 horsepower, 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, 242 mph top speed. But that’s not the best part. Diamond encrusted headlights and (real) gold leather stitching. 3d Hologram Displays, suicide doors.  It comes with a Cyrus Klepcys watch. I am not kidding. It’s an awesome, ludicrous car. And I don’t think I’ll be seeing anyone of those anytime soon.

New Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar-F-Type-2014-widescreen-26Jaguar has been known for comfortable and sporty cars for a long time and gave birth to the legendary E-Type in 1961 with its Series 1. It has been said to be one of the most beautiful cars of all time. It also had reasonable performance and was well priced. Now Jaguar have announced a new model, the F-Type, which is not a real successor to the E-Type, but has design cues through out to show that Jaguar can still be great. But great looks aren’t everything, so they put in a powerful V8.I think that it looks fairly decent, I hope that they really have made something special.

New Corvette Initial Thoughts

Loud, fast, thrills, fun, crazy. Those words can describe any amount of things, separately. Put them together and you just might get something along the lines of American Muscle. I’m not talking about actual muscle cells because if those words were actually describing them, the world around us would become inaudible. Anyways, I am talking about cars. Why am I talking about American cars today? Well, there’s a new corvette. STOP. Go back and read it again. You indeed just read what you think you read. Chevrolet has ushered in the  next generation of their halo car and it looks promising. 450 ft/lbs of torque along with 450 horsepower (those are just estimates for now). Still can get 30 mpg highway. Still promising. Those people who are into old sting ray corvettes may want to look into this new one. Why? Well it looks sleek stylish and it its got the badge to show its roots. It has a redesigned interior with premium materials, which is nice seeing as there were complaints of reliability and materials used in the last vette. I think that its going to be great, I mean its got a new aluminum frame as opposed to a steel one. Its got a full color Heads Up Display along with other technologic features, so it’s well equipped. It’s supposed to be comfortable (or at least better than the previous generation) so what more is there to ask for? Image
