Tesla Model 3 Deliveries Delayed Until 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you are likely familiar with the Tesla model 3 – a car that made headlines and broke records by getting around half a million orders within days of getting announced.

Originally first deliveries were scheduled for 2017; however, it emerged today that they have been delayed until mid-2018 or later.

The news doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise as many were wondering about whether Tesla was capable of meeting deadlines, considering it isn’t capable of producing that many cars at one.

As orders began piling up, it started to become apparent that Tesla wouldn’t be able to deliver the Tesla Model 3 in 2017 as first advertised.

Many customers will likely be disappointed, but considering just how much of an impression the car has made when it was announced, the excitement certainly outweighs the disappointment. Read more at evo.co.uk

Electric cars have been gaining momentum in the automotive industry in recent years, with Tesla at the forefront of the movement. By introducing the Model 3, which is the first affordable mass-produced electric car, Tesla has raised the bar for all other carmakers.

The Model 3 looks fantastic and its performance is just as great. It received universal acclaim upon its debut and remains in high demand.

Tesla certainly knows what it’s doing, and the delay could actually not be that bad of a thing. It will give Tesla more time to produced and deliver the Model 3, meaning a slightly more polished product will be sold.

It’s better for Tesla to take all the time it needs rather than deliver something that’s unfished and unsafe.

The future looks bright for the brand so it will be very interesting to see what else Tesla has in store for us in the future.

The time has never been more perfect to sell your old car and invest in an electric car. We are entering a new era, to become a part of it.

Mercedes-AMG Roadsters revealed ahead of debut

Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster & GT C Roadster revealed ahead of debut

Mercedes has just released pictures of the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, as well as the GT C Roadster, both scheduled to debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Although roadsters are not as popular as they once were, in the recent years we saw them regain their fame too some extent with more manufacturers opting to introduce them in their line-ups.

When it comes to the GT and the GT C, Mercedes definitely knows what it’s doing. Instead of focusing on one area, the brand covers everything in the new model, including speed, performance and styling.

The brand went all out in making the cars truly stand out. Not only do they feature the elegance and class that the brand is so renowned for, but on top of that they offer incredible performance with a top speed of 196mph.

Fans of the brand will likely appreciate the effort that has been put into the production of the vehilces, which suggest the sales could be impressive.

Most high-end cars do quite well on the market, with enthusiasts and collectors eagerly awaiting the release of each new car.

Both cars will make their debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show later this month, with first deliveries expected for April 2017.

Although much hasn’t been revealed about the cars, they’re expected to be priced at around £10k more than the standard GT’s. This will makes them quite expensive, so if you’re looking to get one, you might want to start saving up.

500th LaFerrari is being created.

500th LaFerrari to help the victims of recent Italian earthquake

The Ferrari LaFerrari featured a 499-unit production run which is being increased to 500 units. The money made from the sale of the final car going to the victims of the recent Italian earthquake which occurred just a few days ago.

The 950bhp LaFerrari finished its production run in 2015, but one extra model is being made to be sold at auction. With such a small production number, it’s no surprise that examples which make it onto the used market carry a heavy premium over the car’s £1.15 million price.

Used LaFerrari currently sell for between £2.5m and £3m with some even reaching above £4m, although it’s likely that the car value of the 500th may exceed this considerably.

A source at Ferrari said that the original demand for LaFerrari was more than double the supply, and this is the last opportunity for a buyer to own a LaFerrari from new which will create a lot of opportunities for the people who have enough money to buy it new and own something that will be for a good cause but also to make themselves feel special as the LaFerrari will most likely feature some sort of small detail change in the design to signify that it is a special, final edition.

The drop-top LaFerrari, named Aperta, will be revealed at the Paris motor show in a few weeks, but the 500th LaFerrari will be the very last coupé version built.

The last LaFerrari is being built to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in central Italy, which struck on 24th August and claimed the lives of hundreds while leaving thousands more homeless.

Each standard LaFerrari carries a plaque bearing the words ‘Limited edition [car number]/499’, or the car’s number in the production run, but a source at Ferrari indicated that the 500th example may carry a plaque demonstrating its special status as the very last car, sold to help the victims of the earthquake.

Ferrari have previous experience with helping provide auctions for charities and previously auctioned an Enzo after the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. That car carried a similar plaque, so it’s likely that this LaFerrari will be the same. The winning bidder may also get to choose the colour and spec of the car; however, nothing is for certain at this point.

Elemental RP1 makes its debut

The 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed may be over, but there’s one vehicle that made its debut at event that hasn’t quite left our minds yet. Elemental RP1, is a unique supercar, designed with speed and performance in mind. Although, it looks like something you’d expect to see on the tracks, it’s actually road-legal.

Speed and performance are two things that any car fanatic will tell you play a big role in the world of supercars. Pushing the boundaries has always been an important part of the car-making process, and it remains a goal many manufactures still have to this day.

Due to the fact that technology is more advanced than ever before, we’re seeing big progress being made on the supercar front at the moment.

Capable of going from 0 to 60mph in a mere 2.5 seconds, it could be the most capable production vehicle ever built.

Bugatti Veyron is normally regarded as the leader when it comes to speed; however, the Elemental RP1 is proving itself to be a serious contender in the field.

Unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the British supercar is a great example of engineering done right.

It looks fascinating and different, which straightaway gives an impression of how powerful it might be. Although appearances aren’t everything, when it comes to cars, aesthetics play a huge role. OF course, a car doesn’t have to be visually-stunning or futuristic-looking to offer great performance, as the two are not exclusive, but the truth is that aesthetically-pleasing cars are simply much more fun to look at.

Whether the Elemental RP1 will beat the Veyron in the future, remains to be seen, but there’s no reason why the two can’t coexist in the market. They’re both fantastic cars that offer incredible performance, so at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter, which on is faster.

Yeah, we get it – it’s always fun to have the official title, but at the same time if have a fantastic vehicle to offer, none of the other stuff should matter. Letting the car’s speak for themselves is probably the best thing manufactures can do, especially when they have something truly unique on their hands.

What do you think of the Elemental RP1? Are you a fan of the car or do you prefer the Bugatti Veyron? Let us know your thoughts and return soon for more fun articles from the enticing world of supercars.

Aston Martin has just announced that for yet another time it has partnered up with its frequent collaborator Zagato to bring us a new Vanquish concept.

Scheduled to appear at the Villa d’Este concours d’elegance later this week, the new Vanquish looks quite impressive, based on the images released by the brand.

Although the new car hasn’t made its debut yet, the teaser pictures together with some additional details released by the brand, paint a complete picture of what we can expect.

Aesthetically, you can definitely still tell that it’s the Aston Martin Vanquish, as the car features many elements found on the original. The one things that stands out the most at first glance is the car’s double-bubble roof, which is a trademark of sorts for Zagato, having featured on many of its vehicles since the 1950’s.

A wraparound glasshouse gives the car an almost futuristic finish, one that works well with the overall concept.

Inside, a similar aesthetic remains with the red and black colour scheme, perfectly matching the exterior.

It’s great to see that the two brands are still working together after all these years. Having collaborated on numerous vehicle over the last 50 years, the two have a good relationship as they know what each of them can bring to the table.

Roborace: Driverless racing concept revealed

The vehicle scheduled to compete at this year’s first ever autonomous car race series, Roborace, has finally been revealed.

Ever since Roborace was first announced, people have been speculating about what the vehicle scheduled to appear would look like. Finally, we got a tiny glimpse at the futuristic vehicle and we’re definitely impressed.

Designed by Daniel Simon, the former Volkswagen and Bugatti concept designer, the car looks intriguing and fresh. Nothing like it has ever been done before, which makes it even more enticing.

Roborace, which is scheduled to make is debut later this year will include 10 teams of two, all operating the exact same vehicle.

Although the drivers won’t be inside the cars, they will be able to navigate them using computer algorithms and AI technologies.

The fact that the vehicle is aesthetically-pleasing is a big deal. Since the car doesn’t require a driver, its design must reflect that. Simon did a fantastic job at mixing beauty with innovative technologies and practicality.

Since Roborace will be the first ever event of its type, the vehicle that’s going to appear definitely needs to make a good impression. Building a car that doesn’t require a driver is one thing, but making sure that it still looks good and makes people want to look is much more difficult.

Whether the end result will look anything like the concept is not clear at the moment. If the concept is anything to go by however we’re definitely in for a great event.

Autonomous cars have experienced a growth in popularity in the recent years, with experts claiming that they will appear on our roads within the next 5 years.

It’s no wonder therefore that driverless cars are getting their own racing series.

Subaru to introduce new hybrid sports car range

According to numerous reports, Subaru is currently working on a new series of new hybrid sports cars.

The Japanese brand is reportedly getting ready to introduce a new hybrid model which will mark the beginning of a new era for Sabaru.

Currently, Subaru’s line-up is quite solid as it offers something for everyone. From smaller models to family cars and SUV’s, the brand covers a wide range of models, which is part of the reason why it’s so popular, especially in Japan.

Hybrids are very popular at the moment and a lot of manufacturers are choosing to use that knowledge to their advantage. Their recent growth in popularity increased demand, therefore it’s no surprise that Sabaru is attempting to come out with something unique to offer in that specific sector.

Early reports suggest that the success of the brand’s upcoming hybrid sports car will have an effect on the range. If the car does well, it’s expected Subaru will go ahead with the project, however if it isn’t received that well, nothing will ever come of it.

It will be interesting to see what the brand introduces. Many fantastic sports cars are currently available on the market, so if a carmaker wants their vehicle to stand out, it has to be truly unique.

Perhaps the hybrid sports car will offer something unique, but that will only become clear once we know more about the car.

We’re very much looking forward to seeing what the brand has in store for us. Sabaru is already world-renowned but this new venture has the potential of launching the brand to another level.
