The Hottest Cars of 2011


Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

 


Not only is it the world's fastest production car (it hit 268 miles per hour last summer in Germany) but it is also one of the most refined--with interior cues taken from its sister company, Bentley. Bluetooth capability and Satellite radio make driving to the store a pleasant experience rather than the sweat- and stress

Porsche's ( PSEPF.PK) latest 911 variant, the lightening-quick GT2 RS


The new GT2 RS is a more powerful and lighter model compared to a standard GT2. Porsche managed to reduce the weight by 154 lb and upgrade the engine’s output with 90 HP (for a total of 620 HP). This makes the RS sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 28.9 seconds. Top speed is 205 mph.

BMW 1 Series M Coupe



Under the hood will be the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with 340 horsepower. That motor will be connected to six-speed manual transmission. There will no automatic option with this vehicle. That motor should be more than enough to haul around the car’s 3,307-pound weight

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible





Camaro Convertible will be offered with a choice of two engines: a 312-hp Direct Injection V6 engine for the standard version and a 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 426 hp for the SS version. A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.

Lamborghini Jota




The long-awaited debut of the Lamborghini Murcielago successor appears to be coming sooner than later after it was reported that Lamborghini has filed for a trademark in the US for the name “Lamborghini Aventador”, leading to questions as to whether this could be the official name of the Lamborghini Jota. Though nothing has been confirmed yet, there seems to be enough reason to believe that the Aventador could very well take the mantle from the Murcielago as Lamborghini’s next hypercar.

Ferrari 599XX





As if we needed another reason to absolutely fall in love with the Ferrari 599XX again. This time, this amazingly luxurious supercar established a new world record on the 20.832 km Nordschleife circuit: it become the first ever production-derived sports car to break the 7-minute barrier. The sports car managed an impressive lapping time of 6 min 58.16 seconds. Seriously, can it get any better than this car?
The 599XX is powered by a V12 engine that delivers a maximum output of 700 HP at a screaming 9,000 RPM and is mated to an all new SuperFast gearbox that is able to swap cogs in a mere 60 milliseconds. The 599XX features Ferrari’s High-Performance Dynamic Concept, a novel integrated design and chassis set-up that uses sophisticated electronics to govern the mechanical limits of the handling for maximum performance.

Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI Quattro





The 5.2 Liter FSI V10 in the R8 Spider delivers a maximum output of 525 HP at 8,000 RPM and has a rather high compression ratio of 12.5:1 in order to get the most out of the high revving naturally aspirated power plant. With a weight of only 3,792 pounds, the R8 Spider is able to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in under 4.1 seconds; go from 0 to 125 MPH in a little over 12.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 194.49 MPH, all while consuming 15.79 MPG in the manual transmission version, or 16.92 MPG in the R-tronic variant.

McLaren MP4-12C





The MP4-12C name pays tribute to the legendary 1981 Formula 1 MP4/1, that during the years become a legend in the Formula 1. The McLaren MP4-12C is a high performance two-seat mid-engine model that will go on sale in early 2011 at a price ranging from £125,000 and £175,000.
The supercar is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine producing around 600 horsepower and 433 lb-ft of torque. The engine is coupled to a McLaren seven speed Seamless Shift dual clutch gearbox (SSG). It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3,5 seconds and can hit a top speed of more than 200mph.
