30Trion Nemesis to unleash 2,000 American horsepower in 2016

If it seems to you that everyone and their cousin wants to get into the hypercar game, you're right. We see new supercar startups popping up all the time. Some make it to production and some don't, and while it may be too soon to render verdict on this latest project, we hope it's one that comes to fruition.

19Meet Tecnicar Lavinia, Italy's first electric supercar

New EV Boasts 789 Horsepower, 180-Mile Range

Italian supercars are the objects of lust of people from all walks of life all over the globe. Many of us are guilty of having unframed posters of classic Ferraris taped to our childhood walls (maybe even those of our adulthood), and nothing turns heads quite like a Lamborghini cruising down the block. But what about EV enthusiasts? Must our fantasies of shouting "arrivederci!" and racing off into the sunset in a sexy Italian supercar be tinged with the guilt of guzzled gasoline?

39Renovo Coupe electric supercar offers 500 HP for just $529,000 [w/video]

Entering Limited Production In 2015

What you're looking at there, a Shelby Daytona decked out in classic glorious blue with white racing stripes, is the just-revealed, all-electric 2015 Renovo Coupe. Renovo calls it, "America's First All-Electric Supercar." We call it dope.

27Reflecting on the Ford GT on its 10-year anniversary

Ten years ago, during the bright-eyed enthusiasm of the early 2000s and before the collective automotive industry did its best Titanic impression, we had the Ford GT. An everyman's supercar like there'd never been (remember, this was before 638-horsepower Corvettes were a thing), the GT arrived with a supercharged, 5.4-liter V8 that produced 550 horsepower and graced this retro-styled rocket with an easy, sub-four-second sprint to 60 miles per hour.

118Lamborghini driver can't shoot the gap in London

It may be difficult to see a nearly $500,000 car wrecked because of hot-shot driving on narrow streets, but a new video of a Lamborghini Aventador crash in one of London's poshest zip codes over the weekend has to be seen to be believed.

5Rezvani Motors aims to join the supercar ranks with the Beast

"What the world needs now," sang Jackie DeShannon in the Sixties, "is love, sweet love." We tend to agree, only by "love, sweet love," we mean supercars. Because as many as there may be out there, "it's the only thing that there's just too little of."

18First running footage of the Mazzanti Evantra is here

The 2.5-year rollout of the Mazzanti Evantra V8 continues, this time with promotional video footage and words from the founder, Luca Mazzanti. The deep-purple rendering shown off in December 2011 has come a long way, but remains almost identical as a production model.

11eBay Find of the Day: 2004 Ascari F/GT prototype with 0 miles [w/videos]

Prototype cars are always especially interesting because they show all of the designer's original intentions before the necessities of production forced changes. That is exactly the case for this Ascari F/GT prototype penned by British supercar specialist Lee Noble that is currently for sale on eBay Motors. It has never been registered and never been significantly driven, according to the seller.

19Pagani Huayra explores Italian countryside and looks amazing in the process

Since Evo first got its hands on a Pagani Huayra for testing, about a year after the hypercar debuted, Horacio Pagani's pride and joy has made a few video appearances – once in the hands of Chris Harris and once with a man who compared his new Huayra with an older Zonda on track. But access to the 900,000-euro ($1.22 million) hypercar has been limited, making XCar's recent drive a real treat.

36Take a nostalgic ride in the Vector M12, America's forgotten supercar

The Vector M12 is an American supercar that never really made it. Children of the 1980s and 1990s that read too many issues of Car and Driver growing up tend to have a soft spot for all things Vector, but the Lamborghini-powered machine just couldn't make a go of it with a price tag of nearly $200,000 when it was new in 1995.

27Are you the Canadian-born Magnum MK5 sports car [UPDATE]

A few days ago, we brought you news of the upcoming Magnum MK5, a Canadian-built "high performance two-seater lightweight supercar" that is scheduled for an official debut on October 30. Short of that description and timeframe for viewing, we didn't know very much at all about the curious new offering from the Great White North.

41Koenigsegg planning hypercar with one horsepower per kilo [UPDATE]

If this seems crazy (and awesome), that's because it is. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Koenigsegg is planning a car called the One:1 – as in, one horsepower per pound kilogram. Head honcho Christian von Koenigsegg describes this new hypercar as a "money-is-no-object venture" for a dealer in China.

6Porsche digitally dissects its 918 Spyder for your viewing pleasure

At this point, you'd think we'd know all there is to know about the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder – except what it's like to drive – but Porsche has released a new video giving us a more in-depth look at its new plug-in hypercar all the same. The animated video gives us numerous cutaway looks at the 918 Spyder while giving a visual demonstration of the car's four hybrid driving modes.

18Jaguar XJ220 hooned remotely by a kid

The Tax the Rich crew has a knack for indulging in automotive fantasies and capturing it all on video, such as a tug-of-war battle between two Ferrari F50s, drifting a Ferrari Enzo on gravel roads and even powersliding a Rolls-Royce Phantom on a field of wet grass. This latest video features a Jaguar XJ220 and a kid with an iPad, who somehow is able to control the old supercar with the Apple product.

12Gumpert rescue falls through, company goes under [w/video]

Oh Gumpert, say it ain't so! After breaking into the supercar market eight years ago with the ugly uniquely styled and blazing quick Apollo, the German boutique automaker is finally calling it quits, World Car Fans reports.

9McLaren peels back the drapes on Hybrid P1 development

McLaren launched a website this week to trumpet its upcoming models and, true to form, provided some fun graphics and factoids for its P1 hybrid.

21220-mph Vencer Sarthe supercar to be revealed at Salon Prive

The last time we heard about Dutch supercar upstart Vencer was a little more than a year ago when it announced it would call its one offering Sarthe. Vencer says the Sarthe will be officially unveiled to the UK in early September at London's Salon Privé.

87McLaren P1 breaks down in front of people that can actually afford it

As we wait for the McLaren P1 to enter production, it appears there are still some growing pains with the $1.14-million hybrid supercar. While on display at Italy's recent Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza, this P1 – which appears to be the same one we saw at the Geneva Motor Show – failed to awaken from its slumber when called upon. As there is no escaping from cameras these days, you'll be unsurprised to learn that at least one attentive attendee captured it all on video.

62When a Bugatti Veyron drag races against a Koenigsegg Agera S Hundra, we all win

Want to watch two of the fastest production automobiles in the world line up on an open runway to race? Want to see it happen a whole bunch of times?

26McLaren P1 guru spills more info on his hypercar

We know the McLaren P1 is pretty much ready to fly into lucky US owners' underground bunkers by the latter part of fall 2013. We should get a go at an early production version by late June, we are told, and as you would imagine, we can't wait. The running number on the price for the United States remains pegged at $1.15 million.

17Audi supercar not yet approved, R4 not quite dead, still room for an MPV

According to a report by Autocar, all we thought we knew of the in-development Audi supercar we might not actually know. A piece in Car and Driver, not even a month old, said the diesel-hybrid halo car was in the design stages, would get the engine from the R18 E-Tron Quattro and its carbon fiber tub. Now we get word that that while the coupe is indeed being designed, it hasn't yet been signed off and there's no business case for it yet. Said business case, whenever it is built, is also dubious
