Part One: Roofless and Ruthless
But first check out these al fresco hammers in velvet gloves from McLaren and Lamborghini
From Lamborghini – the Huracan Evo Spyder and Aventador SVJ Roadster

the littler Huracan must make do with ‘just’ 470kW and 600Nm from its
5.2 litre naturally aspirated V10, the mightier Aventador produces 566kW
and 720Nm with its V12. So that’s 3.1 seconds to 100kph in the prior
and 2.9 in the latter.
Your choice really. We call this win/win. Mind you the Aventador costs about twice as much as the Huracan at around $600,000.
Plus this pair of fiery spiders from Woking, UK – the McLaren 600LT Spider and 720S Spider

More lopped-off goodness in Mad and Extra Mad sizes then
Part Two: Let’s put the lid back on with these
Three manufacturers remind us that you can do ‘ultra exotic’ without resorting to lobbing the roof
The Bugatti ‘La Voiture Noire’
us to introduce to you the most expensive car in the world - a
beautifully sculpted one-off that sadly adds a zero to the price tag but
does little more than reshape the surface. But still. Just look at it.
Filth. Absolute car pornography.
Revealed, the Ferrari F8 Tributo!
there’s not much more to report – the design feels derivative, and the
turbo V8 engine ditto. Still, while we’ve seen it all before, it remains
a very excellent machine – one with 530kW and 770Nm at its bidding to
lay waste to its rivals.
Aston Martin Vanquish Vision Concept car
Meet the Vanquish Vision Concept car, and we can’t believe it's taken them this long.
the main point of distinction here, apart from opting for an aluminium
tub as opposed to the Valkrie and 003's carbon fibre, is a mid-mounted
engine setup making it quite the rival to the likes of the Ferrari F8
and McLaren 720S.
At its heart will lay the same V6 as that found
in the new 003. Power outputs, cubic capacity, aspiration - we know
none of this.
“Our first series production rear
mid-engined supercar will be a transformational moment for the brand. It
is the car that will propel Aston Martin into a sector of the market
traditionally seen as the heartland of luxury sports cars.” – Aston's
We're just glad it better resembles the chunky 003 and not the levitating leaf design of the Valkyrie.
Wait, there's more...
