Bentley Mulliner Bacalar
A car that will blow the roof off – yes, it literally has no roof. Reaching a top speed of 200 mph and priced at a cool $2 million, only 12 will be made … and they’re already sold out.
The British carmaker named the car after Laguna Bacalar in Mexico, and if you look closely, the lake’s blue hue is reflected on the car’s digital dial display.
While the open-top two-seater shares the Continental GTC frame and door handles, the ultra-exclusive speedster boasts all new exterior body panels and borrows futuristic features inspired by their award-winning EXP 100 GT electric concept car.
A car this exclusive needs some of the bespoke and hand-built details Bentley is famous for. The dashboard is made from a preserved wood from trees that died millennia ago, while each seat has a quilted pattern that requires close to 150,000 stitches (totaling 400,000 individual stitches in the interior). Cabin details can be completely specified by each customer, working hand-in-hand with Mulliner.
Throughout the grand tourer, materials are ethically sourced using sustainable craftsmanship. For example, the exterior’s paint glistens with silicon dioxide that is obtained from rice husk ash.
Mechanically speaking, it is powered by a 6.0-liter W12 turbocharged engine and is estimated to have a 3.5-second 0-to-60 time while delivering 650 horsepower and 667 lb-ft of torque.
This year’s most highly anticipated SUV is no doubt the new Escalade, which has a debut scheduled for later in 2020. Will it live up to the hype? Well, the flagship of the Cadillac brand does come equipped with a lot of firsts – to say the least.
Let’s jump right into that. The fifth-generation SUV comes in five trims and two design themes, including the first-time Sport, which includes black accents. For smooth driving, the first true hands-free driver-assist feature for compatible highways called Super Cruise will probably come in handy. It offers new enhancements such as lane change on demand functionality and overhead view cameras.
On the entertainment side, the industry’s first curved three-in-one OLED touchscreen offers augmented reality, Apple Play/Android Auto and more.
That covers vision and accessibility; now we need sound to match. Exclusive to Cadillac, the massive SUV comes standard with a new 19-speaker (optional 36-speaker) AKG surround-sound audio system – they’re found in the doors, headliner, instrument panel, center console, head restraints and in the airbag compartments. If you’re looking to stretch your legs a little more, the long-body ESV option adds 15.9 inches in length while keeping all the same features.
We can’t forget about the drive. The 6.2-liter V8 engine cranks out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It makes a sprint from 0 to 60 in 5.5 seconds.
The new Escalade can be yours starting at $76,195.
Chevrolet Corvette C8
An American staple that entered supercar territory has been making waves since its reveal last year. Finally, the second generation Corvette C8 has hit the streets with all that Vette style plus a little more power and exotic appeal.
The Chevy features a 6.2 liter V8 mid-engine that has 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, going from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds with the Z51 performance package.
The Z51 package adds an electronic limited-slip rear differential, more aggressive brakes and summer tires.
On top of its impressive specs, it’s already making history as the first automatic in Corvette history, using an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The striking luxury American icon reaches a top speed of 194 mph and also features a push-button electronic gear selector in the center console, a vertical climate control cluster/strip and a touchscreen with the new Performance Data Recorder that records lap times, track data and more.
If space has ever been a concern of yours in a luxury sports car, this vehicle makes up for that with its front trunk (frunk) and rear trunk.
With all this, the starting price of $59,995 begins to sound like a real bargain.
When Tesla revealed its first pickup truck to the world, the Internet went crazy. The Cybertruck could be the truck of the future. And they’re not only giving us one Cybertruck, they’re giving us three: the Single Motor RWD, Dual Motor AWD and Tri Motor AWD.
Each model differs in performance but shares similarities in physical attributes. While it looks like a space-age life-size toy car, the truck is actually made to suit an active lifestyle. For example, there’s a 6.4-foot cargo bed hidden beneath a seamless automatic covering that can be removed with a push of a button. The slide-out tailgate even doubles as a ramp to load four-wheelers and motorcycles. For extra space, it also features a frunk.
The exoskeleton is made from Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin and Tesla armor glass making it “nearly impenetrable.” The minimalistic interior lets its technology speak for itself with a 17-inch touchscreen horizontally mounted in the center of the dashboard.
And, of course, they will have a 250-kW charging cable and access to Tesla’s network of superchargers.
The unparalleled performance of the pickup truck is obvious. The “Plaid” is rumored to generate up to 800 horsepower and 1,000 lb-ft. of torque, while the Tri Motor AWD’s 0-to-60 is comparable to that of a Ferrari at 2.9 seconds and can reach top speeds of 130 mph – with a range of 500+ miles.
Production will begin in late 2021 with a starting price of $39,000.
Lamborghini SIÁN Roadster
Lamborghini’s most powerful car yet and first hybrid will be unleashed soon. Meet the Sián Roadster – only 19 will be produced and all are already presold.
The Sián, meaning “flash” or “lightning” in Italy’s Bolognese dialect, was rightfully named because of its top speed of 217 mph, reaching 0 to 60 in 2.9 ticks. Producing a whopping 808 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque, the 6.5 liter V12 engine is paired with an electric motor that doesn’t fall short. Instead of a traditional battery to power the electric motor, it uses supercapacitors to accumulate and discharge energy. Think all hybrids sound the same? It’s safe to say the unmistakable Lamborghini sound is very present through its dual exhaust.
The open-top hybrid sports car’s build contributes to its overall speed, too. That includes aerodynamic efficiency due to the ultra-light body and low front and carbon fiber monocoque with aluminum front and rear frames. Worth mentioning is the patented smart material that allows dynamic functionality without support of an electric or mechanical engine.
Personalization is key for this supercar. The newly designed air vents are produced by 3D printing, which allows for a client’s initials to be incorporated into the design. The Lambo team at the Centro Stile and the Ad Personam department also works with customers closely to fully customize their Sián to their liking. Speaking of, the Italian brand launches their new hybrid-only Blue Uranus exterior color and Pro Electrum (gold) interior accents with its debut.
Priced at more than $3 million, this is no ordinary sports car.
