The German based Mansory tuning house are releasing the ‘Carbonado’, based on theAventador LP700-4, it features a reworked bodywork that is 40mm wider at the front and 50mm at the rear, newly designed skirts and propriety bonnet, bumpers, engine cover, rear diffuser and front wings.
Mansory has bolted two turbochargers and replaced the pistons, connecting rods, crank, crankshaft, and cylinder heads with motorsport items, all this resulting in a 1,233HP for a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 2.6 seconds and a 380 km/h (236 mph) top speed. There’s no word on pricing yet but we bet it will be significantly cheaper than Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary ‘gift‘.
The new issue of Wired sees Star Wars on its cover, which features a foldout portrait shot by Stockland Martel’s Art Streiber. The story—introduced by comedian Chris Hardwick—details the many things that the next installment of the beloved sci-fi saga must include. Streiber told Stockland Martel that he and his team “were tasked with a cover concept that illustrated the good, the bad, and the ugly aspects of the movie series…and an illustrative opener to the package…and six concept executions…and 10 individual character portraits, all in one 13-hour day.”
Porsche’s latest high performance entry takes the less is more approach with their new 911 GT3. The GT3 manages to squeeze out 475 hp from a 3.8L boxer engine which produces amazing performance numbers: 0-62 in 3.5, 124 in less than 12 seconds, top speed of 195 mph, and a Nüburgring time of under 07:30.
