Live: Aston Martin Project AM310

Just a few days before the public opening to the 2012 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, some pics have sprung on internet about the new Aston Martin Project AM310. We believe it's gonna be the successor to the DBS, it even produces 55hp more, for a total output of 565hp in the 6.0L V12 engine. Actually, it's the only info available for the car, we just have to wait for the official release of Aston Martin. Just like every Aston Martin, even this one looks simply fantastic, looks like the designers wanted to mix the look DBS and the One-77 together, the result is brilliant, don't you think so?

Would you like to hear it? Sunday I'm attending the event, hopefully I'll bring you some videos!

The million dollar supercars crash

Back in July, 2011, a woman driving a Bentley Azure Convertible caused an incredibly expensive crash in the Place du CasinĂ² in Montecarlo. In a city like that it was inevitable not to hit " normal " cars. Indeed, the accident involved a new Mercedes S-Klass, an Aston Martin Rapide, a Ferrari F430 and a Porsche 997 Carrera S. If that would be bowling, it would have been a strike.

The square of the CasinĂ² is a place that attracts many tourists, and just a few seconds after the crash, the area of the collision was full of people with their cameras in their hands. One of those tourists has posted a video about the crash and trust me, it's painful to watch.

Pagani Zonda 760LH

People have talked alot about the upcoming, special one-off Zonda 760LH ordered by F1 driver Lewis Hamilton, and finally someone has snapped some quick shoots while the car was inside the Pagani factory.

He has placed his order to the most powerful street-legal Zonda ever made, asking for it to be purple with many components with the naked carbon such as the roof, airscoop, the spoiler, side skirt and other elements. Most of the Pagani's of today comes with a flappy paddles gearbox, but this one will comes with a 6-speed gearbox.

And I have to say, it looks quite similar to the one-off Zonda 750 that was ordered by Al-Thani, but then never produced.

Hit and Run

Another crash video involving a supercar, but this time it leaves me indignant about the way the accident is generated. This time a silver Audi R8 in Russia improvise a drift in the city, causing a collision to another car that overturns. What makes me angry is the way the Audi floors it once it causes the accident instead of stopping and checking if the driver of the other car is ok.

A very intense day for Williams F1

Today has been a day full of action and emotions for team Williams F1. After 8 years a new victory has arrived, thanks to the south american racing driver Pastor Maldonado that sat for his first time on the highest step of the podium. The result of today is motivating for the whole team and sir Frank Williams, it shows also that this team is growing and the car is going well.

The joy of this important result has been suddendly stopped due to a huge fire that took place in Williams' F1 box. The fire has been caused by a malfunction of the KERS system of Bruno Senna's F1, within a few minutes burning everything was inside the box. Looks like five technicians have been injured, the material damages caused by the fire are large, a victory that leaves a bad taste in mouth.

In the following videos you can see the exact moment of the accident and the team that is trying to extinguish :

Ferrari 599XX and FXX shakedown

A few days ago took place in the temple of speed, Monza, the only italian edition of the 2012 season of the Ferrari Corse Clienti that involved the XX Programmes, featuring the Ferrari 599XX, FXX and their EVO editions. So, I couldn't miss this unique opportunity to see and hear in person these fantastic machines. The day was divided in track sessions followed by telemetry sessions, so after you were on track you were able to check out with Ferrari technicians in pitlane your results and it was an opportunity to improve your skills on the fast italian circuit. Monza is located in a fascinating location, inside a huge park in the city, when the cars were driving it was really possible to hear an unbelievable soundtrack from every point of the track, or even in the city nearby.

Here below you can check out some pics and videos made by me and a friend of mine.

A spotter has filmed in Monaco an unusual action featuring the loud Ferrari 599 GTB Mansory Stallone. Looks like the young co-driver is having some problems while trying to close in a rough way the big hood that is hiding the huge V12 engine that produces 720hp.

I'm sure that you're having a facepalm reaction while watching the video.

Rimac One in Action

Rimac Automobili has released their first teaser video about some upcoming action scenes featuring the Concept One after its monegasque debut during the 2012 Top Marques Monaco. Most of the petrolheads doesn't approve electric sport cars, mainly because they doesn't produce the typical roar of a petrol engine, but this is something very special.

The Concept One driving in Monaco

The Concept One is moved by four electric engines that produces a total of 1088hp and 3800nm (!!!) of torque. These are some serious numbers that make the Concept One the fastest road production electric car ever made. And so it moves from 0 to 100 kph in just 2.8s and accelerates up to 305kph.

The Concept One has a big autonomy of 600km, if compared to the 340km of its most famous sport electric rival, the Tesla Roadster. Just 88 Concept One will be produced with a price tag of 724.000€.
