But their Korean bosses may not be so keen to finance the project

Peter Schreyer and Luc Donckerwolke came to Hyundai from the Volkswagen Group, where luxury brands create supercars. But will they manage to convince their new bosses to green-light one for the new Genesis brand?

After the long, expensive development of the Lexus LFA, the Japanese luxury brand has absolutely no intention to build a supercar successor anytime soon. Instead, the company is going to stick to more accessible performance through its F performance sub-brand.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

"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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
