  1. Lamborghini Huracán Performante and Koenigsegg Regera were launched at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The new supercars are both a beauty and a beast! (Photo : Youcar/YouTube) The 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder was spotted testing near the Volkswagen Group's Nurburgring testing center. And we finally know what this convertible option is packing. It was an inevitable fate that the Nürburgring-record holder Lamborghini Huracan Performante will have its own convertible sibling, just like the automaker's other performance vehicle models. Thus, spy shots of its prototype have recently emerged. Exterior-wise, despite the heavy camouflage, the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder looks to carry over the same exterior modifications as that of the coupe. It is pretty much as you would expect for a vehicle whose top has been chopped off. It has a lower bodywork from the front bumper similar to the coupe along with new front and rear fascias and a high-mounted set of exhaust tips. And also its rear wing seems to function the same as that in the coupe. Up close, the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder's wheels are shod in Pirelli P Zero Corsas. These are perhaps the same compound as the Huracan Performante's standard tires. But these will likely be exchanged for the mesh-style of the coupe. As for its engine, the Performante Spyder will be sporting the same modified 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine found in the coupe. This has been tuned to the sound of 631 horses and 442 lb-ft of torque. It could be to a standard 7-speed dual clutch transmission, optimized for increased performance. Also, the Haldex AWD sends the power to all 4 wheels with a mechanical self-locking rear differential. All these allowed the Performante coupe to dash a 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and 0-200km/h in 8.9 seconds with a top speed of over 325 km/h. Overall, the setup allowed the Lamborghini Huracan Performante to claim the Nürburgring in a record time of 6:52.01, dethroning the once high and mighty Porsche 918 Spyder. The 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder's roof only takes 17 seconds to go full up or down. Plus, this is fully functional at speed of up to 31 mph. It is expected to have a summer debut. So, stay tuned. See More http://wwww.autoglobalnews.net/2017/04/2018-lamborghini-huracan-performante.html http://wwww.autoglobalnews.net/2017/04/2018-lamborghini-huracan-performante.html
  2. The Lexus LS 500 F Sport will grace the floor at New York Auto Show. (Photo : Red Line Reviews/Youtube) For over 115, the New York International Auto Show has been one of the largest shows in America and a place for automakers to display their cars. The 2017 New York International Auto Show is no different. The show will showcase an incredible collection of cutting-edge design and incredible innovation. There are going to be more than four floors that are opened to the automakers so they can feature their newest vehicles and latest futuristic concept cars. As reported by Wheels, Lexus is one of the automakers that is going to showcase their latest cars at the 2017 New York International Auto Show. One of the vehicles is the Lexus LS 500 F Sport. It is hard to tell the features of the new car as the single teaser image show the car’s rump. It is clear that Lexus is keeping the reveal for New York. However, the LS 500 F Sport is likely to have a unique grille treatment with a sportier mesh design, lower body kit, bigger bumper vents, dark-hued wheels, and darker interior with contrast-stitched leather. The F Sport grade suggests that there won’t be many tweaks to the standard LS 500’s 310kW twin-turbo petrol V6 engine. Instead, Lexus hinted that chassis and suspension upgrades will be the key difference on the LS 500 F Sport. They said that the F Sport is going to capitalize on the responsiveness and agility of the new LS line. Speaking of the LS line, the LS 500h hybrid will also receive the F Sport treatment. The car uses 3.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol V6 engine and two electric motors to deliver 264kW. As reported by Roadshow, the Lexus LS 500 F Sport is not going to compete with the likes of Mercedes-AMG S63 or anything similar, but it is going to stand on its own as the most fun LS model yet unveiled. The Japanese manufacturer doesn’t give up on the idea of a sporty luxury sedan, and the LS500 F Sport is the proof of that. http://wwww.autoglobalnews.net/2017/04/lexus-teases-ls-500-f-sport.html
