A two-time Formula 1 world driving champion and two-time Indianapolis 500: Emerson Fitipaldi, created a nice race-car:  the Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo. Designed by Pininfarina the car has a shark theme: aggressive and streamlined but with a grace in motion. Engineered by a the german HWA company HWA (a Mercedes AMG Spin-off) with a naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V8 engine producing 600 horsepower.

The Vision Gran Turismo suffix to this car’s name denotes the fact that it will also appeal in the virtual world, in this case the upcoming PlayStation 4 video game “Gran Turismo Sport.”

The 1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo concept car was created by Marcello Gandini, and was based on one of the most beatiful cars on history the 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. But Alfa had trouble finding buyers due to its price. As a result, five of the Stradale chassis were passed to Italian carrozzerie: two to Pininfarina, one to Italdesign and two to Bertone. One of them, this Carabo with a V8, red-lined at 10,000rpm, and 230bhp.

Carabo is derived from ‘Carabidae’, a family of ground-beetles with a distinctive green and gold colour.

This supercar  is built on the chassis of the Ferrari Enzo, and they share the same 6 L V12 engine that produced 620 hp of power.  Maserati only built a total of 50 MC12s.

Frank Stephenson did the majority of the body styling, but the initial shape was developed during wind tunnel testing from an idea had by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The exterior is available only in the white-and-blue colour scheme, a tribute to the America Camoradi racing team that drove the Maserati Tipo Birdcages in the early 1960s.

Only 100 will be made and each will cost $2.4 million!  This roadster is more than simply a convertible version of the hard-roofed Pagani Huayra, almost a brand new-car more powerful and lighter (made almost entirely from carbon fiber). Powered by a 754 horsepower twin-turbo V12 engine provided by Mercedes’ AMG division.

Green Hell Magno it’s the colour… a reference to Jackie Stewart’s famous description of what the Nürburgring was “a green hell”.  Declaring this AMG the most sportive of all the family.  With a big fixed wing, a new grille and wider front and rear fenders.

Enjoy this nice car with a 577-hp 4.0-liter V-8 engine twin-turbo near his “cousin”, a bot from Cigarette Racing.
