As 2015 comes to a close, it’s time to look ahead (with much anticipation) at what some of the most exclusive car companies in the world have in store for us. There will be some exciting things happening in the coming months and years. Let’s take a little peek at what’s coming down the pike.
Exotic Cars of 2016
Several of the most exclusive car companies will be breaking the mold as they break out new models that give more – way more.
Bugatti Chiron (2016) – There’s been some buzz in recent years that Bugatti will be replacing the Veyron with the veritable hypercar, the Chiron. With 1,500 horses under the hood and a top speed projected at 288, it definitely has the power. Combine that with the super sexy styling and, well, WOW just doesn’t seem to adequately express how we are feeling.
W Motors Fenyr SuperSport (2016) – Dubai carmaker W Motors may not be at the top of your radar, but if you saw Furious 7 (and what self-respecting motorhead hasn’t?) then you say Vin Diesel jump a Fenyr SuperSport through two buildings. Yes, this is THAT car! This high performance, 900 horsepower supercar, with a look that screams alien tech, looks (and feels) like a rocket. But don’t take our word for it. Take a look at this teaser video that W Motors released to promote it.
McLaren Can Am 650s (2016) – This special edition car is an updated version of the classic Can Am – but only in aesthetics. The power will remain the same and no one’s complaining about that, performance was never an issue. There will only be 50 of these special edition cars made and distributed globally and it will go for around $334,500. That should narrow the playing field a bit.
Exotic Cars of 2017
An exotic electric car? Yes, it’s true – and that’s just one of the incredible surprises that these exotic car companies have in store for us.
Porsche 911 Turbo S (2017) – All the other 911 variants have been getting mini-makovers, now it’s the Turbo’s turn. They did a nip here and a tuck there to bring the styling up to date, but raise that hood and you’ll see that’s where all the action is. The horsepower is cranked up to 580 so it goes 0 to 60 in a blistering 2.8 with a top speed of 198. Lots of tweaks here and there, all for a sticker price starting at $188,100. Now, show of hands. Who can’t wait till it gets here?
Lamborghini Urus SUV (2017 or early 2018) – Lamborghini and off-roading may seem completely contradictory, but somehow the high end car company is making it work. Back in June we gave you a little taste of the Urus, hinting that production could start as early as 2017. Things are a lot more solid now and it look like production will begin in 2017 or early 2018. Lamborghini has also confirmed that the Urus will be powered by a twin-turbo V-8. Pack the family in that and head to grandma’s.
Aston Martin RapidE (2017) – This is a – wait for it – electric variant of the Aston Martin Rapide S, the four door, high performance car that is Aston Martin’s pride and joy. It debuted in London in October 2015. All evidence hints at production beginning in early 2017. Let’s put this into perspective, it’s an electric car by Aston Martin and has around 800 to 1,000 horsepower. Now chew on that.
The Future for Exotic Cars
As we near the end of the decade exotic car companies will be unveiling cars that are sexier, more powerful, and have more futuristic designs than ever before.
Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 (still in concept) – This has been a twinkle in Bentley’s eye for quite a while now, but it seems that thought may soon be put into action. There is more talk of dropping a full EV into the production, although Bentley is looking at a variety of alternative powertrains. Rumor has it that this will be Bentley’s stab at an electric car, most likely a plug-in hybrid. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. There’s no set production date yet, but all hints from Bentley say it’s gonna happen – eventually.
Ferrari F12tdf (unknown production dates) – The tdf stands for Tour de France – not the bike race, but the classic Ferraris. This will definitely be a step up from those classics, especially where power is concerned. Not much to go on yet, but you’re looking at around 770 horsepower so it can scoot. Lots of performance tweaks and a top speed of 211 MPH. Did we say this baby can scoot?
