The powertrain, chassis, and aerodynamics have all been optimized. Aston’s goal was to make the car easier to control at the limit. The engine makes 536 horsepower and 516 lb-ft which is slightly more than the regular Vantage. Aston has partnered with Alcon for the braking, Öhlins for the suspension, and Michelin for the tires. They have already completed over 8,000 hours of testing.

Walmart has already committed to purchasing 15 Tesla Semis! 😮. Well damn... that happened fast. Walmart plans to test the trucks on their routes. 10 of the trucks will be tested on Canadian routes and 5 on U.S. routes. Currently Walmart has around 6,000 trucks in its fleet. Walmart released a statement saying, "We have a long history of testing new technology – including alternative-fuel trucks – and we are excited to be among the first to pilot this new heavy-duty electric vehicle. We believe we can learn how this technology performs within our supply chain, as well as how it could help us meet some of our long-term sustainability goals, such as lowering emissions.” With one of the worlds largest retailers already interested, the Tesla Semi could be a massive success! 💰 • Photo: @teslamotors • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #tesla #teslamotors #teslasemi #semi #walmart #hypegarage

Tesla had a surprise for us during their Semi Truck unveiling event and that is the reveal of an all new Tesla Roadster! First off the details are insane! Musk is claiming the new Roadster is the “quickest car in the world.” It will be the first car to hit 60 mph in 1.9 seconds and it can hit 100 mph in 4.2 seconds. 😮. They’re claiming it can do the quarter mile in 8.8 seconds which would be the fastest in the world and it can achieve a top speed of over 250 mph! It will come with a 200kWh battery pack that will have a range of 620 miles! It can generate 7,375 lb-ft of torque! The car has a removable glass roof that you can store in the trunk which makes it kind of a targa style car. On top of all these amazing numbers and details the car is gorgeous! If you’re interested in ordering one it will set you back $200K and you need to place a $50K deposit! Production will supposedly start in 2020 but with Model 3 production lagging and the Tesla Semi on the way it will probably take longer! • Photo: @teslamotors • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #tesla #teslamotors #teslaroadster #roadster #hypegarage

Tesla has finally unveiled its Semi Truck and the details are pretty amazing. It has a range of 500 miles. Elon Musk plans to build a network of mega chargers that will allow for 400 miles of range after a 30 minute charge. With an empty trailer it can hit 60 mph in 5.0 seconds. With a full load of 80,000 lbs it can hit 60 mph in 20 seconds. It is equipped with highway autopilot and can actually change lanes on its own. The Semi has independent motors at each wheel to prevent jackknifing. It has a “F1 style” central driving position which Musk says is optimal. The electric powertrain will be guaranteed by Tesla for up to a million miles and Tesla claims it will save $200K in fuel costs alone during that time! 😮. According to Elon Musk if you order the truck today you will get it in 2019 which is pretty hard to believe as they haven’t been able to deliver the Model 3 in time and also Musk has been known to over promise. At the end of the day this is definitely a game changer for the trucking industry. You can imagine there are a lot of truck drivers out there that would be interested in purchasing one. Expect this to be a huge success for Tesla. 👍 • Photo: @teslamotors • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #tesla #teslamotors #teslasemitruck #teslasemi #hypegarage

Lamborghini has created a special one off Huracan for the Pope! The car was presented to Pope Francis by Lamborghini boss Stefano Domenicali at the Vatican. The exterior is painted in Bianco Monocerus white and has a special livery based on the city’s flag. The Pope trading in the Pope mobile for a Lamborghini would be pretty awesome but this car is actually being auctioned off for charity. The Pope signed and blessed the car. He will donate the proceeds to 3 charities. It will be auctioned off next May through RM Sotheby’s! • Photo: @lamborghini • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #laborghini #lamborghinihuracan #huracan #popefrancis #hypegarage

Jaguar is offering up to $30K off the F-Type! As the year comes to an end dealerships want to clear out inventory on 2017 models. According to CarsDirect.com Jaguar is offering up to $30K in discounts but not in the traditional sense. From the article: “The offer in question is a form of dealer cash incentive. Like other promotions of this type, it’s entirely up to the dealer whether or not to pass along some or all of the savings to prospective buyers. One of the conditions of this particular offer is that it can’t be combined with promotional financing. As a result, the only shoppers eligible will be those paying cash or with the help of outside financing. Program bulletins indicate the largest potential savings is at the higher end of the spectrum. The SVR is eligible for $30,000, while the R and V6 are eligible for $20,000 and $10,000, respectively.” Unfortunately inventory for base F-Types is low but if you’re looking to get the 575 horsepower SVR now is a good time! 😈 • Photo: @jaguar • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #jaguar #jaguarftype #ftype #ftyper #ftypesvr #svr #hypegarage

McLaren has revealed a special one off 720S at the Dubai International Motor Show! The car was created by McLaren Special Operations and pays tribute to McLaren’s founder Bruce McLaren. The car comes in a satin black and gold color scheme. It has a 24K gold engine heat shield, gold wheels, and a quote by founder Bruce McLaren written in gold on the rear spoiler. The quote is “Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.” It has been translated to Arabic and written in a way to resemble the Dubai skyline. The interior continues the black and gold theme. The engine remains unchanged. McLaren says it took more than 120 hours to complete the customization process and 30 hours alone to stencil the quote on the rear spoiler. The owner will take delivery after the Dubai International Motor show! • Photo: @mclarenauto • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #mclaren #mclaren720s #720s #mclarenmso #mclarenspecialoperations #hypegarage

Automotive tuner Manhart Performance has revealed their MH2 630 Nürburgring Edition! The car is based off the M2 but a few big changes have been made. For example they have replaced the engine with the 431 horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter inline 6 found in the M4! The M4 engine has been upgraded though with turbocharger updates, new intercooler, and a new ECU. The results are an increase of 190 horsepower making a total 630 horsepower. The car also has a new dual-clutch transmission, stainless steel exhaust, KW suspension, and new aerodynamic parts to increase downforce. The car is called the Nürburgring Edition because it actually achieved a lap time of 7:35 compared to the stock M2 lap time of 7:58! • Photo: @manhartperformance • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #bmw #bmwm #bmwm2 #m2 #manhart #manhartperformance #mh2 #mh2630 #mh2630nurburgringedition #hypegarage

Don’t expect a manual transmission to show up in the GT3 RS or GT2 RS anytime soon. Speaking with CarAdvice, Porsche Motorsport Division’s head of road car development, Andreas Preuinger, stated, “RS means Renn Sport, which means it has to be quick on the track, that it’s all about fast times on the track, and that means the PDK. The PDK has advantages on the track that can’t be beaten by a manual, and the ones who prefer the manual transmission are not typically the track rats as we call them, but they are those who like to enjoy their cars on the normal public roads. I would say a GT2 RS with a manual option would have a four or five percent share of the market, we couldn’t justify that.” • Photo: @porsche • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #porsche #porschegt2rs #gt2rs #porsce911 #porschegt3rs #gt3rs #911 #997 #hypegarage

Chevy has officially revealed the 2019 Corvette ZR1! The car has a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that makes 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque! 😮. Power goes to the rear wheels. You can have it in a 7-speed manual or a 8-speed automatic. This is the first time an automatic transmission is being offered on a ZR1. It’s capable of doing over 210 mph!

That comes with the orange exterior color you see above, orange calipers, orange rocker and splitter accent stripes, orange seatbelts, orange interior stitching, and bronze aluminum interior trim!

The car will make its official debut Tuesday at the Dubai Motor Show and it will make its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show later in the month! • Photo: @chevrolet • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #chevrolet #chevroletcorvette #chevy #chevycorvette #corvette #corvettezr1 #zr1 #hypegarage

Lexus president Yoshihiro Sawa has stated that he hasn’t ruled out creating a successor to the LFA but as of now it remains “just a dream.” He was quoted as saying, “I really want to do an LFA successor, and it is important to have dreams, but for now it is a very complicated situation. It’s a very difficult question to answer as I would like to do it, but we have other priorities for now.” Production on the LFA ended in 2012 and only 500 units were made. The car had a roaring 4.8-liter V10 that made 552 horsepower. 0-60 took 3.2 seconds and top speed was 202mph. What do you guys think? Do you want a new LFA successor from Lexus?? • Photo: @lexususa • Follow 🚘 @hype_garage 🚘 for the latest automotive news! • #lexus #lexuslfa #lfa #fsport #hypegarage
