Lamborghini Gallardo

Lamborghini is one of the biggest names in the supercars field, having produced beautiful exotics for more than half a century. The Gallardo is no exception to this beauty.

Produced from 2004 to 2014, the Gallardo is a supercar in the truest senses of the word, with 14,022 produced in total over those years. The first generation is equipped with a 5.0 liter V10, producing 493 horsepower at 7500 rpm and 376 lb⋅ft of torque at 4500 rpm.

There have been numerous special editions of the Gallardo released, all of which boast the same impressive specs as the base model. For under $100,00 you’ll be getting a first-generation, mid-engine, all-wheel-drive beast, capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds and reaching a top speed of 196mph. What’s not to love?

Porsche 997 Turbo

Searching for a remarkably swift car that is equally exhilarating to drive? Then the 997 may be the perfect budget supercar for you. With the styling of its predecessor causing a stir, the 997 returned to the traditional aesthetics of the 911. The interior of the model was additionally thoroughly revised with the focus on being a luxury car.

The 997 Turbo debuted in 2006 and is fitted with a rear-mounted twin-turbo’d flat six engine that was based on the 911 GT1’s design. The engine can produce an astonishing 480 horsepower at 6000rpm, allowing the 997 Turbo to sprint to 60mph in a quick 3.9 seconds with the manual transmission and achieve a top speed of 193mph.

udi R8

Relatively new to the scene in their supercar production, Audi hit it out of the park with the R8. Introduced in 2008 with the first generation running to 2012, the R8 is everything you need in an everyday supercar.

The R8 is possibly one of the most affordable supercars on the market, considering the impressive specs it provides. The first generation came with a mid-mounted 4.2-liter V8 engine that packed a punch, producing 420 horsepower, and is connected to either a 7-speed R Tronic automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. The R8 can reach a top speed of 187mph and sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, performance specs that were awesome during the era when the car was first unveiled.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Unconventional in terms of being a supercar, the Corvette Z06 still holds its own on our list and is one of two true American supercars that is affordable. While the newer, C8 Corvette fits the supercar spec of having a mid-engine, this C7 Corvette front-engined muscle car is still a monster.

number 4 on the cheap supercars list

When it came out, the C7 Z06 Corvette was the most powerful car that Chevrolet had ever produced, equipped with a V8 engine pushing 650 horsepower. The Z06 can hit 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 196mph. 

Lotus Exige S

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

on

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
