How fast is the Lotus Exige Sport 380?

It’s unarguably the fastest Exige ever built, able to hit 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, thanks to a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 generating 375 horsepower and 302 lb-ft of torque. Weighing in at less than 2,500 Lbs with the help of polycarbonate rear glass, lithium-ion battery and carbon fiber elements at the front splitter and rear wing.  It also features a six-speed “open gate” manual transmission (or an optional automatic) and a bare-bones interior. Prices start $84,000.  No word if it will actually reach U.S soil.

Lambo and LAPD??

What you are seeing is an actual police car, not from a movie set, which was produced by none other than LAPD. However, unfortunately, it is not a patrol car or a pursuit vehicle, as this Lamborghini Gallardo was donated to the department from Los Angeles residents, Nathale and Travis Marg.

2014 BMW M4

The 2014 BMW M4′s official unveiling, a passel of leaked images have surfaced online. Preliminary reports indicate that the vehicle will be powered by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder, good for 431 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. Power goes to the rear wheels of the 3300-lb M4 Coupe, enabling it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and an ultimate top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). An optional M Driver’s Package boosts that figure to 174 mph. Rumors of a carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof panel are confirmed, which combine with aluminum hood and front panels to shed 83 pounds from its M3 Coupe predecessor.

2015 NISSAN GT-R NISMO

Nissan’s long-rumored 2015 GT-R NISMO has finally been officially revealed and we have the photos to prove it. Following its visit to the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan is now calling this take the “ultimate iteration” of the supercar, capable of delivering 591 horsepower thanks to several upgrades to its powertrain, with 479 lb-ft of torque, up from 463 lb-ft in the base version. The upgrades are due in large part to the enlarged turbos derived from the GT-R GT3 RaceCar, but other exterior elements are also at play here, including a new rear trunk-mounted spoiler, a front carbon bumber, and a lower front lip. Taken together, the aerodynamics on the GT-R generate over 220 lbs of additional downforce at 186mph. Inside, the cabin also received new carbon-backed Recaro seats, a new steering wheel, and red contrast stitching to match the accents outside. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but it’s expected to be under the $200,000 mark.
