2020 Lamborghini hypercar teased

Lamborghini has provided the world with the first details about its track-only hypercar, which is due to be revealed next year. According to the company, the car will be powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine with around 610kW (830hp) of power. It is paired to a six-speed sequential transmission from Xtrac, and a mechanical self-locking differential, which the driver can preload dynamically based on track conditions.

Bugatti Chiron tops 300mph as company looks to leave the speed record game

Bugatti has sent a modified Chiron where no near-production car has gone before, topping 300mph (482.8km/h) at the recently-resurfaced Ehra-Lessien test track. The company says its 300mph run spells the end of its obsession with top speed, having "shown several times that we build the fastest cars in the world".

Published by Carscoops, the images show a Chiron-based hypercar with various cosmetic modifications inspired by its 25-year old relative, including the frontal treatment, the circular cutouts behind the side windows, along with the intricate tail-light pattern that mimics the rear detailing of the EB110 Super Sport.

Lotus Type 130 hypercar teased, but there's already much to know

It's not hard to make jokes about Lotus. Older readers might remember the acronym that the British sportscar brand's shonky build quality earned it in the 1970s and 80s: Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious. It was a phrase later turned to summarise the company's frequent crises and revolving door management changes. In recent years trouble peaked with the unravelling of Dany Bahar's grandiose plans, announced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, to launch no fewer than seven all-new models.
