While they are calling this a concept, it’s actually a teaser of the McLaren P1 that is set to debut on show floors by the end of 2013. McLaren has stated a simple goal for the new P1, “to be the best driver’s car in the world on road and track”. While that may be a little far fetched with all the competition these days, it surely may take the crown for some of the best styling we’ve ever seen. This design comes from the works of Chief Design Engineer Dan Parry-Williams and Design Director Frank Stephenson.
With all the buzz about the Nissan Juke this past year, the world premiere for the Nissan Juke Nismo edition should have fans at the edge of their seats. Especially since the debut will take place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race from June 13th through the 17th. The concept was first seen on display at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, and this performance model will be the first to enter production in a series of new Nissan Nismo cars.
It’s been over 10 years since the Honda S2000 came into production and car enthusiasts worldwide had to get their hands on one. Honda has sold over 112,000 of the unique sports car that was originally a concept model called the SSM (Sport Study Model) back in 1995 at the Tokyo Motor Show. The RWD Honda roadster packed a punch with the 2.0-liter four cylinder DOHC VTEC that many fell in love with. There have been rumors of a replacement for the Honda S2000, so a design student named Michael Mcgee came up with this interesting concept for the year 2020.
Even though Rimac is a brand new manufacturer trying to make it in supercar industry, it looks like their have their eyes set on one thing. The SUPER wealthy. This Croatian built automobile is currently called the Concept_One after it made a debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show last year. This year, Rimac displayed the electric powered sports car at the Top Marques Monaco and announced the price to be around €750,000 or about US$990,000. We’re not sure how that will fair with the modestly price Fisker Karma at around 100k, which is another fully electric sports car receiving quite the buzz.
Acura finally made an announcement at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show of the new Acura NSX set to be produced by Honda R&D America. This means the supercar will be constructed at the plant located in central Ohio, and US citizens will get a first hand look of the finished product in the next couple years. They say this Acura NSX will go on sale within three years, giving it an approximate arrival of 2015. What they didn’t tell us until the unveiling is that is looks VERY similar to the Audi R8.
Subaru had this tease on display at the 2011 LA Auto Show called the Subaru BRZ STI Concept. Although it is not in production, this is one of the first Subaru sports cars we have seen that is not all-wheel-drive nor turbocharged. While it still holds the famous Subaru four-cylinder boxer engine, this is one of the first live appearances of what the Subaru BRZ STI will look like.
We received our first live look at the all new Cadillac Ciel concept at the 2011 LA Auto Show. A few months ago we posted an article with full details about the intial debut of the fancy Cadillac Ciel concept, however seeing it in person is a different story. Named after the French word “sky” this car is smooth as butter from the suicide doors to the missing B-pillar that is similar to the 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible.
We never saw this one coming, but with all the positive results of the Nissan Juke sales, Nissan has announced plans of a Super Juke. It is rumored to hold a 480 horsepower engine, which would most likely be the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 found in the Nissan GTR. If so, this slightly de-tuned Super Juke will still blow the tops off of any regular Nissan Juke tuning projects. Just check out the official sketch that hit the web this past week, showing a Nissan Juke sporting a new wide body kit, Nissan GT-R style alloy wheels, hood vents similar to the GT-R, and a rear wing.
