Auto shows have been canceled this year, but they hardly make an impact anymore. Automakers are showing off new models throughout the year these days, and here are a few of the latest hottest new cars from this week.
Now this is truly wind in your face driving. Lamborghini has constructed a one-off custom version of its Aventador supercar that doesn’t have a roof or a windshield. The 770 hp V12-powered two-seater was designed for track day driving, but is also street legal, at least in Europe. The identity of the buyer is not known at this point and neither is the price, but you can be sure it has seven figures.
Hennessey Venom F5
Talk about wind, how about a car that’s as fast as a tornado? The Hennessey Venom F5 has been developed to go at least 311 mph, which is as fast as a Category 5 hurricane. The Texas-made $2.1M supercar will stretch its 1,817 HP twin-turbocharged V8 on the Space Shuttle landing strip at the Kennedy Space Center next year.
Need a lot of space? California-based electric vehicle startup Canoo has revealed a line of boxy, battery-powered cargo vans it plans to start selling in 2022 at a base price of $33,000. Two sizes will be offered when it will be available, along with three battery packs that can provide between 130 and 230 miles per charge. A third high-roof version will be an option to the lineup later.
Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV
The Vision Gran Turismo SV won’t be coming to Jaguar’s lineup anytime soon, but it will be available to drive in the “Gran Turismo” game for Playstation 5 next year. Jaguar did build a full-size model of it, however, and said the all-electric, all-wheel-drive supercar has a virtual 1,877 HP and can go to 60 MPH in 1.65 seconds on its way to a top speed of 255 MPH.
