R20 Audi 2017 Supercar

cr a29f043a3690c26b73855140def7832f 2017 Audi Supercar R20R20 Supercar! – Audi is looking for something new to reinvigorate its brand and may have just found its hybrid R20!

 

The R20 appears to be a legal street model variant to the German Automaker's LeMans Race Car (R18).  The premier feature of the R20 is its door design which seems to mirror the Mercedes SLS AMG with a pronounced wing like style.  The newest model designated the R20 will arrive with a full featured tail fin with its design extracted off an R18 LeMans race car.  It will encompass a single frame grille, LED headlights, ventilated front and rear wings and rear tail spoiler (adjustable and functioning as an airbrake). 

 

The interior is comprehensive including a functional black panel center display along with active contour seats and a boat load of other interior features.  The R20 will be above the current R8(The R8 E-Tron was dropped by Audi) which will top out its model lineup.  Experts suggest that the vehicle will surpass the McLaren P1 and will assume the role of a road worthy version of Audi's Le Mans winning LMP1 vehicle.

 

Audi's R20 will likely include a hybrid diesel electric powertrain.  A Twin Turbo V6 TDI engine and two 75 horsepower electric motors/generators will generate the power.  Each electric motor will drive the front wheels independently.  The V6 engine combined with the independent front wheel technology will boast a total output of a lofty 700 HP (515 KW). Torque Vectoring and Advanced  Aerodynamics Technologies provides the R20 impetus and additional down force to achieve a 150 -200 mph range.  Additional features include brake energy recuperation and high speed coasting.

 

The R20 could make its debut in Pebble Beach Beach at the Concours d'Elegance in 2015 prior to its start of production(SOP) the following year (2016).  It's anticipated that only 100 – 250 of the R20 will be produced.

 

Is Audi trying to steal the show from Porsche before it releases its 918 plug-in hybrid supercar? One never knows but if you like style, have a load of cash and don't mind about fuel economies then the R20 could be for you!

Picture of the Day: Crashed Lamborghini Gallardo

Lamborghini Gallardo Before and After

The pictures tell thousands words as you can see for yourself that the white Lamborghini Gallardo supercar was in a bit of wreck during a test drive. Yup… it’s not careless driver, but maybe not-so-fortunate driver.

Before you mix everything up, the reason behind crashing Lamborghini Gallardo was started when a promising customer set his eyes on this white supercar. You know what happen when you have the money and the privilege to buy this kind of supercar?  Test drive, that is. So, this eager and hyper customer took the Gallardo for quick spin.

The salesman was escorted the promising buyer to feel the menacing power of the Lamborghini Gallardo. After sometimes, the customer might be feeling that it’s time to take the supercar for the next level, so he did. He did get panicked for a while and crashed the six-figures supercar on a roadside barrier.

The damage is pretty much severe as you can see on the photo as the part of the front-end of the Lamborghini Gallardo supercar and the right wheel disintegrated from its axle. Lamborghini Sydney Managing Director – Andrew Smith stated, “It appears he panicked – these things happen, “It doesn’t matter as long as no one was doing anything stupid or crazy, and no one was injured.”

We never been to Lamborghini store before, does it have signs like “You Crash It  – You Buy It?” Hopefully after this incident, the store will put sign like that so no other Gallardo will be victim of eager and hyper promising buyers.

Check out the video that uploaded by YouTube user “CarsandCoffeeIrvine” as he successfully recorded 11 units of Bugatti Veyron gathered in one place. Now, this “one place”, where was it exactly? Must the happiest place on Earth as it surrounded by supercar like the Veyron.

With 11 units of Bugatti Veyron gathered in one place, what else can you hope for? Among the army of Veyron supercars that invaded US, we managed to find the ordinary 1,000 horsepower Veyron (how come a Veyron referred to be “ordinary”?), a pair of hunkered-down Veyron Super Sports with noticeable bright yellow bumpers and wings, and four units of super sports Bugatti Veyron convertibles.

Bugatti Veyron L'or Blanc

On top it all, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport “L’or Blanc” Edition. Yup… this one supercar appeared with fine porcelain cover all over its body as well as in it cabin. We bet the girls would spend hours looking at the reflection and admiring the exclusivity. It’s not difficult to locate the Veyron Grand Sport “L’or Blanc”, just look for the shiniest Veyron among the supercars and it will leave you bewildered; is it in blue, white, or silver? As we mentioned before, being in one place surrounded by 11 units of Bugatti Veyron, must be the happiest place on Earth.

Dual Tone Colors for Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron Matte Black and Purple

What is the first thing crosses your mind if you think about the Bugatti Veyron supercar? Mighty supercar that blast off less than 5 seconds? Can you imagine Veyron dresses in matte black and purple combination? Dressing supercar in unique color tone seems to be trending right now as we reported a Bentley that got ASI body work, and now… Bugatti Veyron dresses in matte black and purple. Interesting, isn’t it?

Thanks to YouTube user under the name of F14BigAl, our imagination over dual tone colors for supercar will never come true. Where exactly the video did was taken? Well, judge by the background, it was in hotel in London, if we are not mistaken.

The video was less than one minute, but enough to see living proof of dual tone of Bugatti Veyron supercar in matte black and purple. Just want to remind you that the mighty supercar is powered by 8.0L W16 engine with the power output reaches 1,001 horsepower and 922 lb-ft of torque. To complete the performance, the Veyron equips with 7-speed automated manual gearbox which has similar design with Volkswagen’s DSG transmission.

The all-wheel drive system on the Bugatti Veyron is able to reach 0 to 60 mph in about 2.5 seconds – told you it would be blast off less than 5 seconds, right? – and a quarter-mile time in the low 10 seconds range. So, what do you think about the matte black and purple Bugatti Veyron? Will it be able to sprint under 5 seconds?

Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster Got Reventon Bumper

Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster

Question: how to turn Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster into Lamborghini Reventon? Thanks to the aftermarket world, you can turn your Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster supercar into any other type of Lamborghini. Stop shaking your head because the video footage we found on YouTube says so. The mighty Murcie has Reventon bumper. A quick psychological review can tell us that the anonymous Russian owner of the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster supercar probably wants Lamborghini Reventon but his financial budget has drained out, so he asked for the aftermarket to put Reventon style bumper. And Voila…. We present you the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster with Reventon front bumper.

The video footage revealed that the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster supercar with Reventon front bumper was found at Monaco, a country well the people have social security and money more they can spend. We still don’t get, the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster supercar is still in tip-top shape, not marks or any other improper handling what so-ever. So, why put the Reventon front bumper?

We have other prediction: the Russian owner of the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster hits something and the original front bumper has lost its original shape, so he decided to give the white supercar new front bumper with Reventon style. Well, does not matter which our prediction is true, if you watch the video footage, you might notice that the workmanship on the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster Reventon front bumper is a bit iffy around the lights, the scoops and the line of the bonnet.

The biggest flaw we notice on the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster with Reventon front bumper is the color. Yup… the color does not match with the stealth fighter looks and the lines of the headlights are far from matching to the Reventon front bumper.

The video footage on the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster supercar with Reventon front bumper was uploaded by YouTube user “RacingEngineV8”. So, to all Lamborghini owners out there, what lesson we got today? Choose the correct aftermarket product before installing it so you will not experience what the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster has shown us.
