The All new Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2

The All new Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2

The Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 is real fun in driving comes when you realise that you’re not just driving, you’re acting like a driver. When you can control your car to get the sincerest reactions form the road. When driving becomes a natural delivering experience. When a car is created to give its driver a pure fun to drive experience, every line and detail must be designed to fend the air and take the breath away. The engine and gearbox has the power of the 5.2-litre, V10, 572bhp, and it's made at 8000rpm. This gives a better balance with the rear wheels, but also concedes that it’s easier on the transmission, given that there’s a lot less driveline to cope with the power. The Lamborghini huracan LP 580-2 3.4sec 0-62mph time from a two-wheel-drive car is quick in anybody’s language.

The One and Only Bugatti Veyron

The One and Only Bugatti Veyron

The Veyron is, famously, the world’s fastest car The open-top Grand Sport remains on sale, with the big Bug effectively in the world’s most extravagant runout cycle. True to form, buyers haven’t had to put up with a piffling 1,001bhp for long. Now, Bugatti has announced the Grand Sport Vitesse, which revives the Super Sport’s 1,200bhp engine for a damned good crack at its 267mph top speed. The drive of the Veyron is wide and low, but with the seven-speed paddleshift gearbox and genial power delivery, it’s about as frightening as an space shift to drive normally. It’s not until you really put your foot down that you realise quite how ballistic the Veyron really is: 0–62mph in 2.5 seconds, and more than 250mph top speed.

The World’s 1st MEGACAR

Forget the supercar, or the hypercar, meet the Megacar. The latest from Christian Von Koenigsegg is the most exclusive production car ever envisaged in the motoring industry.

Simply titled the One:1, this car makes Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s look like push bikes in terms of performance. The cars name comes from the incredible engineering which allows the car to possess the “dream” equation of having one Horsepower for one kilogram. To achieve such an engineering millstone, the car boasts a whole Megawatt of power coming from a Quad-turbocharged 5.0 Litre, aluminium, rear-mounted V8. This car is so unbelievably fast, that it does not boast a 0-100kmh time, but rather a 0-400km/h time, which is a Ludacris 19 seconds! Critics, who have been lucky enough to test the car, have likened it to a jet fighter and even a rocket! Accompanying the powerful engine is a 7-speed dual clutch transmission and an electronic differential which allow the car to glue to road as it corners. Needless to say, it also comes with a boatload of very fancy electronics which work tirelessly just to keep the car on the ground!

Understandably, this car is not for the faint of heart, or even Formula 1 drivers! This remarkable machine is for those who have always wanted to be astronauts, but just couldn’t quite make it to NASA. Of course, if you have a spare $4million AUD, it can also be for you!

Godzilla...also know as the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R

What we loved about the Skyline R34, the thing that set it apart from other Japanese rocket-sleds (apart from its butch, angular appearance – if a car could grow stubble…) was that it owned one of the most technically sophisticated and absurdly talented four-wheel- drive/steer chassis ever to cling to a twisty road. Never mind that it was called ATTESA E-TS Pro, what mattered was that it put all the drive through the rear wheels until the road conditions dictated that some torque should be directed to the front.

It sounds like a blast and it is. At first, though, it’s unnerving. The R34 has an entirely different feel to a Scooby or an Evo. It feels like an altogether tougher, bigger, heavier car. And those SUPER HICAS four-wheel steering responses appear to be artificially darty. At the same time, other aspects of the package feel curiously old-fashioned: hard-riding, slow-revving, conspicuously turbocharged. But then much of the high-tech hardware is designed to make it feel old-tech simple and honest. The only real disappointment was the rather tacky interior. A warrior-class performer nonetheless with a compelling mixture of raw stonk and PlayStation-esque all-drive chassis wizardry.

Renault Megane RS265

Renault Megane RS265

The Megane RS is pretty much the undisputed king of the current hot hatch crop. Despite being not too far from its use-by date, the Megane is still getting plenty of attention. Which brings us to the RS 265 Trophy.

The new design of a  three-door Megane barely looks related to the five-door hatch. With a pumped-up rear end and a more stylish the distinctive hatch has been with us for some years now and is ageing gracefully.

Renault's long-lived 2.0-litre turbo is under the bonnet, mated to a six-speed manual. With 201kW and 360Nm of torque, it expects premium unleaded which it will drink at the rate of a claimed 7.5L/100km. Stick the boot in and you'll get around 13.0L/100km. Find a good piece of road. Because once you do, you will discover that the hype surrounding this car is entirely justified.
