Just a few weeks after its debut in Frankfurt, the Ferrari 458 Speciale has been shown on its national debut in Spain during a private Ferrari event, for the first time we get to hear the 4.5L V8 revving up and I have to admit that it sounds better than I thought!

If there's something that the world needs, is definitely more Lexus LFAs. Just 500 of these have been produced and you can imagine that is kinda hard to see or, let me specify, hear the gorgeous exhaust note of that V10 in person.

The battle we have been waiting for a long time is here: a long straight and two incredible V12 powered italian supercars that had to be compared side by side, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the Lamborghini Aventador!

In this long straight the new BMW M6 meets the Lamborghini LP560-4 Spyder. A V8 twin turbo engine matches a V10 natural aspirated, the competitions sounds very interesting and close since both engines produce 560hp, although the M6 produces 138nm more (678nm in total). So, on which car you bet your money?

Does the LaFerrari wants to join the exclusive sub-7 minutes club of the Nürburgring? It would be exciting if Ferrari joins the battle between McLaren and Porsche to make the best lap time of the fastest street legal car, but I guess the technicians of Maranello are driving the car at the Green Hell for other reasons, the car is not yet ready and for this reason Ferrari has delaied the production to 2014, mean while both productions of the P1 and 918 Spyder have started this month.

A lot of rumors, a lot of spy pictures, but finally we get to see and hear for the first time the Lamborghini Cabrera, known as the replacement of the Gallardo. Around the corners of the Nürburgring we see a prototype driving quickly, and so what can we say about it from this footage?

You might have heard about a recent accident of a white Lamborghini Aventador in New York, the collision was so hard that has split the car in two pieces! The reason of the crash wasn't very clear but with this CCTV footage we get to see the dynamic of the brutal accident; apparently, a car turned left without noticing the italian supercar (how can't you see or hear it coming?!).

During the stage of the Hellendoor Rally a spectator has caught on his camera a brutal crash of a Porsche 964 RSR which locks the brakes, crashes into the jersey barries and flies into the river! The impact of the car is impressive, but hopefully we get to know the occupants survived and didn't reported serious injuries.

No way, Godzilla made it again! All we know the performance on the straight line of the Bugatti Veyron, but after all if you see it from the cockpit of a 1038hp Nissan GT-R, it looks pretty slow! But we know, a modified GT-R is quite hard to beat..

Recently racing driver Chris Van Der Drift (yes, it's his real name!) crashed his McLaren 12C GT3 racecar during the International GT Open championship, an unfortunate series of events have brought him to crash at high speed at Eau Rouge; when he was getting inside the famous corner the McLaren broke the steering with a perfect timing by making impossible for the driver to steer and avoid the barriers.

A chinese man had the idea to sell his Hyundai Coupe which is modified enough to such an extent to be nicknamed " Hyundarghini Coupentador ", the problem is that in China the laws are severe when it comes to modify a car and so the cops noticed his car that was left parked into a crowded pedestrian area in the city of Jiangbei.

If you have already been to Maranello you probably know that it's possible to rent for a short time a Ferrari or even a Lamborghini (why you should do that in Maranello?!). It's a fantastic experience to tame a supercar in the streets close to the factory and this lucky chap certainly had a good time while driving an F12 Berlinetta behind a LaFerrari!

Many times I use to hear comparisons between heavily modified supercars with over 1000hp and the Bugatti Veyron. A lot of people think that it's better to have a tuned supercar rather than the Bug, but this video shows why the Bug is still the best car made for the straight line accelerations.

In the past we have heard stories of people who decided to destroy their expensive cars in public to protest against the manufacturers for their poor service, you might remember the Lamborghini Gallardo and Maserati Quattroporte smashed in China for this reason.

A woman, bad weather and a drag race with supercars. Is this, the recipe of an incoming disaster? The latest drag race organized by the russians at Drag Times Info has ended badly during a match between two Nissan GT-Rs under a massive rain storm.

A brand new Audi R8 V10 Spyder caught fire for unknown reason in Lyon, the poor attemps to extinguish the fire weren't enough to save the expensive supercar and at a certain point people left the lonely Audi in the car park as the flames get bigger.

What you see here is the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo caught on camera during a session of testing at Nürburgring.. where else? After 6 years and several facelifts, " Godzilla " is still on the market and before the presumed successor to come in 2015, Nissan wants to improve the car and with a rumored 0-100 km/h sprint in just 2 seconds, the GT-R Nismo might be the fastest as well as the most powerful road going model that Nissan has ever produced, and it really looks as fast as we can imagine from this video!

The russians at DragTimesInfo are back with an interesting battle and now we wonder, can a stock Ferrari 599 GTO beat two modified SUVs on a mile drag race? Let's find out how the 670hp italian supercar will race against a 760hp BMW X6M and a 700hp Nissan Juke-R.

Chris Harris from DRIVE is a lucky guy and really knows how to push the pedal to the metal of the most expensive and rare supercars. Just mix these two facts and you find out that his latest video goes beyond epicness.

No wonder many people wish to be Jay Leno. First of all, because he's a genuine petrolhead with a dream garage and second, because he's the first person outside McLaren to drive their latest hybrid hypercar, the P1.

Driving at the infamous Nürburgring requires skills and a lot of concentration, if you want to complete a lap you have to be totally focused not to make mistakes because you can really have a bad day if something goes wrong.

It was just a matter of time and here we go, Autocar is the first to test the 0-60mph sprint of the new Porsche 991 Turbo S compared with another spicy supercar, the McLaren 12C.
