It Can Recognize People And Read Plates On The Go

Meet Abu Dhabi’s Robocar – Lykan HyperSport 5
If you think this is just a regular and conventional police car, you could not have been more wrong. Abu Dhabi’s Police Department proudly took the veils off of the latest vehicle that has joined their squad; a hypercar that is worth $3.4 million and comes equipped with a surveillance system that is quite tech savvy. It has been created by W Motors that moved to Emirates from Lebanon shortly after it was launched. The Lykan HyperSport is being promoted as the first Middle Eastern supercar. Fans of F&F franchise would remember it from Fast & Furious 7 as well.

It features a 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six capable of cranking out 740hp and is capable of going from rest to a speed of 62Mph in 2.8 seconds while offering a top speed of 245Mph. It has been imparted an awesome surveillance system that is made up of cameras created by ekin.

Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SuperVeloce Roadster

Just a couple days after Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed an open-top version of the beastly Aventador was on its way, automotive photographer Jordan Shiraki has put up exclusive first pictures of the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SuperVeloce Roadster via his website.

Seen here in a striking Blu Glauco paint job, there aren’t too many differences when compared to its hard-top predecessor apart from the $493,069 USD price tag and the fact that only 500 of them will be made. The Roadster version also boasts a 739-horsepower V-12 engine, allowing it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in a mere 2.8 seconds, while reaching astounding top speeds of 354 km/h. Complete with a two-piece removable carbon fiber roof, expect to hear more about the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SuperVeloce Roadster later on in the year.

Aston Martin’s Insane New Powerboat

aston-martin-4aston-martin-1Lay your tired, overworked eyes on this fine piece of tech: the Quintessence Yachts powerboat, produced in collaboration with Aston Martin and Mulder Designs. It’s so unbelievably luxurious, they won’t even tell us how much it costs yet. It’s not gonna be finished until September (just in time for Bond’s Spectre coming out) but we already know that it has a voice-controlled entertainment system and a electronically-powered slide cover…

Rumor: 2015 Corvette Z06 does 7:08 on the Nurburgring

Ban on record attempts keeps Chevrolet quiet for now

At the Goodwood Festival of Speed, I bumped into a guy who spends a ton of time (and money) at the Nurburgring. During a wide-ranging conversation with me and an another automotive journalist, he mentioned that Chevrolet had somewhat recently made a timed run at the Nurburgring Nordschleife in the 2015 Corvette Z06 with the Z07 package. The time was reportedly something like 7:08, which would place the most potent street-spec Corvette within a second of the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo on the unofficial leaderboard. For those keeping score, that would place it behind a couple of Radicals, the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce and possibly the Nissan for the overall record. Not bad.

According to our source, the Nurburgring’s ban on “official” record attempts has kept Chevrolet from announcing a time.

Earlier this year, Chevy personnel claimed that they’d attempted a ‘Ring run with the Z06, but if memory serves, they were forced to scuttle the effort due to inclement weather. There’s some forum chatter that supports the 7:08 number, but nothing credible. We asked Chevrolet for a comment this morning, but until the Nurburgring lifts its ban on manufacturers publicizing lap times, don’t hold your breath on a confirmation.
