Check out this latest video from Hennessey Performance, showcasing their new 2014 VelociRaptor SUV based on the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor truck. If you want a truck that has it all, then look no further as the $149,500 price tag is not a joke. It features a 6.2-liter V8 powerplant that has been supercharged from the factory 411 bhp, to now produce a whopping 600 bhp. This allows the sporty truck as we may say, to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds which is 1.6 seconds faster than the stock version.
Owning and driving a performance car is a privilege; it is an exhilarating and thrilling experience that separates them from standard vehicles. With their elegant design, upgraded suspension and tuned exhausts they are a luxurious commodity. Possessing such a beautifully engineered machine is what makes custom detailed insurance essential; by searching for specialist insurers, you receive personalized coverage that can reduce your premium.
Now this is why you do not race through traffic, even if you own a Subaru STi or other well designed sports car. This stupid kid thought weaving in and out of traffic at nearly 200 km/h would somehow be safe? At first you notice some near crash chances, but then once in the tunnel the light at the end makes it impossible to see. Of course there were about 50 cars backed up at the end, so he plows through 10 or more cars causing tons of damage and possibly hurting some people at those speeds. This is just a reminder that if you own a sports car, think about the others on the road first before trying to race through traffic. Instead, take your car to the track and really find out its true potential before destroying it for one minute of “fun” with your friends.

At the 2013 Life Ball event in Vienna, Austria this Roberto Cavalli gold-themed Mini Paceman sold for €150,000 or $194,000 with all proceeds helping HIV/AIDS. This is the most expensive Mini ever sold at a Life Ball auction, and Ralf Schepull, the head of Mini brand communications said, “We are very pleased that the one-off MINI has sold for a record price and can thus make a special contribution to projects dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS. The charity principle is an important part of the MINI brand, which enjoys a unique platform through this partnership with the Life Ball.”
Here we have the new 2014 Lexus IS F Sport that has received a nice variety of upgrades from TRD (Toyota Racing Development). Most people wouldn’t even think about tuning the factory F-Sport, however there are always a couple out there who need more. Like the funny AT&T commercials these days, we want more, we want more! This aerodynamic package features new lower corner pieces for the front bumper, side skirts, trunk spoiler and a large rear diffuser that makes way for the high performance dual exhaust system.
In the style stakes, the Audi R8 is a classic supercar with a hefty price tag, but when it comes down to performance it does what it says to the tin, and drives beautifully at top speeds on the race track. If you’re looking to buy new, the coupe model starts at £91,575 with the open-top Spyder model tipping the scales at well over £100,000. Certainly worth a visit to a car shop for price comparisons of used car models, reviews, security and insurance advice for such a prestigious investment, in some cases a high performance supercar can cost as much as a small property. With a seven speed dual transmission clutch, the R8 has smoother handling and great traction on the road coupled with a stylish interior. A two-seater model with the finest Nappa leather interior, no expense has been spared on the upholstery and in car features like built in satellite navigation, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.
If there’s one car you dream of owning, the McLaren 12C Spider probably makes the top of the list. Factor in the car tuning by Gemballa and a true beauty is born with the subtle modifications they have made all around the sports car. The new aerodynamic kit features a front bumper with lip spoiler, side skirts and new diffuser at the rear for €19,980 or about $25,800 excluding taxes.
A wild car tuning package here from the guys at OK-Chiptuning for the 996 generation Porsche 911 Turbo. This exterior paint scheme was inspired by the 1991 German action comedy Manta, Manta where the protagonist of the movie drove an Opel Manta coupe. The colors you see here were placed over the original paint by using a foil wrap, while the tuners also installed TechArt pink rims with Opel logos. This makes us wonder why even both with the logos when it’s obviously a Porsche 911 Turbo.
Here is a perfect example of what a de-chroming can do to make your car extra unique while still keeping the stock parts in check. The owner of this Tesla Model S gave his sports car to the tuners at Al & Ed’s Autosound where they covered all the chrome exterior parts in a 3M satin black film. The lower body trim parts were also painted the same color as the body, as well as the nose cone. As you can see, the only chrome pieces left on the Tesla Model S are the license plate frames for marketing use, which we’re sure have been removed by owner.
Check out this new car tuning program from Revozport for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. They are calling this the RZF-12 and features a new front splitter, side skirts, rear spoiler and diffuser all made of carbon fiber. Prices range from $1,300 to $2,900 for these aftermarket parts and keep the classy styling of the Ferrari F12 we all love.
Here we have a new package from the guys at Inside Performance for the BMW X6 M. This fast and flashy SUV has been called the “Stealth” project by the tuners, however nothing about this exterior appears stealth to us. With the pixel camouflage theme used to mimic jet fighters and other flying vehicles, the color combination is out of place since this car will only be flying on the Autobahn.
