This might be hard to believe, but I first heard that there was an LFA in town, when doing my daily browsing on Zerotohundred.com. Yes, despite contributing here myself, news of an LFA in Malaysia had flown under my radar, and I had no idea one was headed down here. To set things straight, I made my way to Wing Hin’s Lexus showroom in Sg Besi, and set an appointment for some private time with the elusive machine.
McLaren said that the production version of their new hybrid hypercar, the P1, will look almost identical as the concept version unveiled over at Paris. While we have seen a lot of concept cars being toned down to a tame and restricted form when reaching the production lines, McLaren on the other hand kept their word.
McLaren have not wasted any time in the development of their new P1 hypercar, and it seems that they are really looking into making it a rare gem on the roads. Holding a private event at Beverly Hills last week, McLaren gave their potential customers a sneak peek of what it seems to be not only the best creation that had ever come out from the British marquee, but could also be the best sports car in the world.

Sadly however, all good things must come to an end and the life cycle of the Zonda is now at its end.
Auto Express recently got behind the wheel of the ultimate Nissan GTR, the Spec-V. While some of us still lust over the standard GTR, the Spec-V has raised the bar by not just a notch, but by unimaginable levels. 0-100km/h in 3.2-seconds puts the car comfortably into hypercar territory (think Mclaren F1). But just like any other hypercar, it doesn’t only have to be able to carry insane speed, it needs to be able to handle really well.

An eight-wheel car – a stuff of fantasy and sci-fi flicks and now it’s as real as its attempt at ridiculous speeds using alternative energy.
