By now, you’re surely aware of how awesome the Porsche 918 Spyder is in its fully complete and finished form. What you may not know, however, is how much work and effort goes into the process of screwing, welding and gluing the hybrid hypercar together before it ever has the chance of meeting its future owner on the road or at the racetrack. Follow along on our guided tour.
The Ferrari FXX K continues in a long line of successful racetrack-specific vehicles from the Italian automaker – from the the Enzo-based FXX to the the 599XX Evoluzione and the 599 GTO – that are based on its already super-high-performance vehicular machinery. A total of 1,035 horsepower from electric motors and gasoline-powered engines will be sure to make this FXX K just as awesome as its predecessors.
What you see to the right, dashing through the snow somewhere in Europe, is a Mercedes-Benz prototype of a production model that we think will be called the GLE Coupe. As you can probably surmise thanks to its aggressive body kit, wheels and tires, this is most likely an AMG version. We’re expecting a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with as much as 510 horsepower underhood.
