The car recharges while driving, though a wireless charging pad is included with the car, trickle-charging it when not in use. The Speedtail is fitted with electrochromic glass, which darkens at the push of a button, eliminating the need for sun visors and also incorporates LED lights in the interior.
Similarly, the Speedtail does not feature door mirrors, instead of using HD cameras mounted on the front guards that pop out when the ignition is turned on, and retract inside when the "Velocity mode" is activated, which the company states are to reduce drag. The front wheels feature carbon fibre static covers to further reduce drag.
On the exterior, it features hydraulically actuated active rear aerodynamic control surfaces, which are formed in flexible carbon fibre and are an integral part of the rear clamshell.
Its focus is on speed, and while details are slim, the futuristic looking hypercar is set to deliver the goods with 1,036 horsepower coming from a hybrid powertrain. Top speed is expected to be in excess of 250 mph.
They’re no mere touring cars, riding on race-ready underpinnings and packing powerful engines that enable unimaginable rates of acceleration. They come wrapped in achingly gorgeous, low-slung styling that make them rolling works of art as much as automobiles. They’re also expensive like museum-grade artwork, with staggering sticker prices that are only within the reach of the wealthiest royals, tycoons, and oligarchs.
The company today is owned by Indian automaker Mahinda, which is best known for rough-and-tumble off-road vehicles. Named for company founder Battista “Pinin” Farina, it’s said to be the most powerful road-legal car ever produced in Italy.
The Battista accelerates from 0-100 km/h in under 2 seconds, 0-300 km/h in under 12 seconds, and has a top speed of 350 km/h.
Mercedes-AMG Project One
The Mercedes-AMG One is an upcoming limited-production plug-in hybrid sports car manufactured by Mercedes-AMG, featuring Formula One-derived technology. It was unveiled at the 2017 International Motor Show Germany by Formula One driver Sir Lewis Hamilton and Head of Mercedes-Benz Dieter Zetsche.
The production of the car is planned to be 275 units at a price of US$2.72 million per unit, all of which have been already sold. Mercedes-AMG received orders for four times the production amount, but have stated that production will not be increased from the planned 275 units, in order to maintain the exclusivity of the car
Aston Martin Valhalla
The Aston Martin Valhalla is an upcoming mid-engine sports car manufactured by British automobile manufacturer Aston Martin in collaboration with Red Bull Racing. The car is meant to sit below the flagship Valkyrie track focused sports car and is intended to be more usable as an everyday car.
The car is a result of the collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing. Initially called AM-RB 003, the project name for the car was revealed to be the "Son of Valkyrie" at the car's public introduction as it uses many technologies first implemented in the Valkyrie. The final name of the car was revealed to be Valhalla.
Valhalla is the name of warrior's paradise in ancient Norse mythology. The name also continued the tradition of the naming of Aston Martin cars starting with the letter "V".
The key part in the design is the FlexFoil rear wing. The wing can change the car's downforce without changing its angle of attack. The wing is integrated into the bodywork and is claimed to generate no drag or aerodynamic turbulence.
The interior has space for storing luggage behind the seats, a centre console and a phone mount for the driver.
