Lamborghini teases track-only V12 hypercar

Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has released a teaser video of its latest project – a new, track-only V12 hypercar, developed by its racing arm, Squadra Corse. Powered by a 6.5-litre V12 naturally aspirated engine, Lamborghini claims the limited-edition car will produce 830hp, about 619kW. It's paired with a six-speed Xtrac sequential transmission, plus a mechanical self-locking differential, which the driver can preload dynamically based on track conditions.

McLaren’s Mike Flewitt on combustion engine bans, EVs and SUVs

The short-notice cancellation of the Geneva motor show threw the PR plans of much of the global motor industry into chaos. But with senior executives having already booked out time for interviews, we actually still had the chance to speak to several of them – albeit over the phone, rather than face-to-face. So McLaren boss Mike Flewitt was sitting in rainy England rather than Switzerland when CarAdvice caught up with him, but there weren’t any shortage of topics for discussion.

Watch: Koenigsegg breaks the 0-400-0km/h record

Last month, the Koenigsegg Regera became the fastest production car to ever run from 0-400-0km/h. Now, you can have a look at what went into the record-breaking run from behind the wheel. Driven by Sonny Persson, a Koenigsegg test driver, the run to 400km/h and back again was over in just 31.49 seconds. That involved 22.87 seconds reaching 400km/h, and just 8.62 seconds coming to a complete stop. Although it looks fuss-free from behind the wheel, Persson says the run could have been faster.
