Ferrari LaFerrari XX : Concept Cars
Ferrari LaFerrari XX : Concept Cars

Just days after Antonello Coletta, head of Ferrari’s Sporting Activity Department, confirmed to Australia’s Drive that a Ferrari LaFerrari XX is under development and will be launched in 2015, our spy shooters captured a suspiciously XX-like LaFerrari lapping on the Nurbürgring.

Coletta’s statement to attendees of the annual Ferrari Racing Days event—held this year in Sydney, Australia—leaves little ambiguity about what’s next for the Modena-based automaker: “Now we are working on the new hypercar for the circuit, the LaFerrari XX.” For those not in the know, the XX program invites very privileged (and stinkin’ rich) Ferrari customers to purchase essentially a turnkey race car and then gives them low-friction opportunities to race it. The first was the Enzo-based FXX, which was followed by the insane and highly modified 599XX.

As for these photos, our shooter on the ground reports that this particular LaFerrari’s speed was so great that he was motivated to hand-time a lap. He says the car completed the circuit in a stunning—and most definitely unofficial—six minutes and 35 seconds. 6:35! In addition to running Pirelli tires, the car has weight-saving plastic side windows instead of glass, and what appears to be an unpainted carbon-fiber body shell. The photographer, who has 10 years of experience at the track, commented that the exhaust note was “incredibly loud.”

Back in Sydney, Coletta went on record as saying the LaFerarri XX “will be more or less the same [power], but it will be completely different the handling, because it’s normal that the handling is different for the circuit and the road.” Such a statement confirms the assumption that the LaFerrari XX would be track-only car. Coletta, who admits it would be hard to improve on the 950-hp hybrid powertrain of the standard LaFerrari, added, “The power is a lot; enough! It is very hard to improve the power. The difference will be the slick tires, the aerodynamics, the electronics, the suspension, the shock absorbers.”

Coletta also insisted the be-winged Ferrari spied in January is not related to the gestating LaFerrari XX, stating in the same interview that, “The supercar you saw . . . is a laboratory car. It is not an XX car, it is not a Le Mans car for the future. It is a laboratory car for many activities for us. [It] Could be in the future a prototype [Le Mans car]. It is normal for a manufacturer to have a test track and a test car to improve our knowledge for our car for the future.”

Karma Coupe, Or Fastest Sedan Ever? : News
Karma Coupe, Or Fastest Sedan Ever? : News

Bob Lutz and his business partner Gilbert Villereal remain committed to delivering Fisker Karma sedans that have had their extended-range electric drivetrains replaced by good ol’ V-8 engines, in this case the supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V-8 from the previous Corvette ZR1 supercar.

Considering the LS9 was tuned to deliver as much as 638 horsepower in the Corvette ZR1, the version of the Karma powered by this engine, to be called a Destino, was always going to be a quick car, but now Lutz has revealed that it will “most likely” be the fastest sedan on the planet.

Lutz made the comment during a recent interview with Fortune, where he also revealed that the first Destino customers should start receiving their cars later this year. The fastest four-door currently in production is the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, which has a 707-horsepower rating and top speed of 204 mph. The Charger also has an eight-speed auto while the Destino will only feature a six-speeder.

One advantage the Destino is likely to have over the Charger is less weight. The Charger weighs a substantial 4,560 pounds; no figure has been given for the Destino but it’s expected to be 1,000 lbs lighter than the 5,300-lb Karma thanks to the elimination of the huge battery pack and related systems.

We still don’t have an official price tag for the Destino but it’s believed to cost close to $200,000, or about double what the original Karma cost. The Destino is destined to be a very exclusive product, however, as less than 1,000 will be built annually.

Financial backing for the Destino project comes from WM GreenTech Automotive, the same company that plans to manufacture a budget electric car in Tunica, Mississippi. The Destino will be built at a plant in Michigan using rollers sourced from Fisker.

In 2001, Clooney's fame widened with the release of his biggest commercial success, Ocean's Eleven, the first of a profitable film trilogy, a remake of the film from 1960 with the members of The Rat Pack with Frank Sinatra as Danny Ocean. He made his directorial debut a year later with the 2002 biographical thriller Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and has since directed Good Night, and Good Luck (2005), Leatherheads (2008), and The Ides of March (2011). He won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in the Middle East thriller Syriana (2005) and subsequently fetched Best Actor nominations for such films as Michael Clayton (2007), Up in the Air (2009) and The Descendants (2011).
Clooney's humanitarian work includes his advocacy of finding a resolution for the Darfur conflict, raising funds for the 2010 Haiti earthquake, 2004 Tsunami, and 9/11 victims, and creating documentaries such as Sand and Sorrow to raise awareness about international crises. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

1969 AMC-AMX : Classic Cars
1969 AMC-AMX : Classic Cars 

From 1968 through 1970 a four-barrel carbureted eight-cylinder engine could be had in 290, 343, 360 and 390 cubic-inch flavors. Power was sent to the rear wheels courtesy of the standard T-10 four-speed manual gearbox. Dual exhaust and a special traction bar were also included as standard equipment. Adding to the sporty persona were extra wide tires which provided extra traction and enhanced performance.

In 1968 AMC produced 6,725 examples of the AMX. The following year 8,2963 were produced and in 1970 sales dipped to 4,116. There were 52 examples of the Hurst-modified SS/AMX drag strip racing versions. These are highly sought after in modern times as collector cars.

The AMC AMX was popular on the racing circuit, especially at drag strips. The potent engines and wide tires made them very competitive. The AMX captured the Super Stock Championship title multiple years. Craig Breedlove, a renowned driver with years of experience and many titles was hired by AMC to help further the career performance of the AMX. He did so by breaking over 100 records including the 24 hour average speed record which he averaged 130 mph. The previous record had been 103 mph. From 1971 through 1974 the AMX name was used on the Javelin indicating the performance option. It was used again in 1977 as a performance option on the Hornet. The following year it was applied to the Concord and in 1979 and 1980 it appeared on the Spirit.

There were three concept versions of the AMX created, known as the AMX/1, AMX/2, and AMX/3. The first operational AMX prototype was debuted in 1966 and resided for a number of years in the Talledega Speedway museum. Two rolling prototypes were made of the AMX/2, with one being used for many years atop of a pole of a used car dealership. In 1970 AMC commissioned ItalDesign to create a mid-engined high-performance version of the AMX, dubbed the AMX/3. The design was mostly by AMC designer Richard 'Dick' Teague and production was done at the former Bizzarrini factory located in Turin, Italy. Only six versions were created from 1969 through 1972. Located mid-ship was a 390 cubic-inch AMC V8 capable of producing 340 horsepower. A custom made OTO Melara five-speed manual gearbox was used and top speed was achieved at 160 mph. (Read More)
