Mercedes | R8 Killer Mercedes

I'veR8 Killer heard some rumors that Mercedes was planning to make a new supercar that can rival against the Audi R8 so I've been keeping an eye on this for quite some time and they claim it to be the R8 killer.

A lot of people keep saying that in order for Mercedes to create a R8 Killer they're going to need Mclaren by their side, but in my opinion Mercedes can do this alone, they've been working with Mclaren for a long time, therefore as a car maker they should already posses Mclaren's technique and not only that, Mercedes Benz is an excellent top class Automaker as a user I've driven Italian supercars and German cars and I must say Mercedes is one of the best when it comes to comfort, quality and performance (Top Speed not included in the judgement) way better than Italian supercars the only thing they lack is the design, don't get me wrong their cars have excellent design but they're more likely luxury type or you could say Cars for the Old Guys, and in order for them to create an R8 Killer they should be thinking of redesigning making a more hot rod young looking car, but in terms of performance I believe Mercedes won't lose.

We are still uncertain what's up their sleeves right now but the picture might be the R8 Killer.

Mclaren MP4-12C 's looks are inspired by their Italian competitors and the legendary F1 wedge shape combined, and light weight is the key to all the automakers that's why supercarsMclaren composed this cars structure using carbon fiber and its body with the combination of aluminum, carbon fiber and SMC plastics to achieve what they call the right weight , Mclaren known to produce extremely powerful car and with this new model they make sure that the drivers won't be disappointed.

Supercars | Lamborghini Jota Supercars

Lamborghini JotaAs I previousy stated on my last article supercars have evolved and jump to a higher more powerful level and the first step of Lamborghini will be the Lamborghini Jota, which won't be as powerful as the Urus but without this car there won't be any Urus, for Urus is the modified version of Jota, and without the base there won't be any modified version.

Lamborghini Jotasupercars will be powered by either 6.0 liter or 6.5 Liter V12 engine that will produce no less than 700 horsepower in all wheel and combined with a new lighter frame which is known as the aluminum space frame which was also used by Corvette, and the body will be made by the combination of aluminum and carbon fiber which will reduce the weight of Lamborghini Jota drastically, the Jota would also be wider than the Mucielago, combining this methods Lamborghini would be able to produce a far more powerful car than they've ever produce in the past this car would be way faster, better handling skills, in other words Jota is at the level where all the future supercars will be ranked.

Lamborghini Jota more likely be produced in 2011.

Supercars | Lamborghini Urus Supercars

AnotherLamborghini Urus new year another new car list, and one of the most intruiging new supercars that I'm waiting for is made by none other than the Lamborghini, this automaker is dedicated to introduce a new model every year, there is the Reventon Coupe then the Reventon Roadster and next year there is the Jota then after that is the Lamborghini Urus which is the one I'm intruiged to see.

So the informations that I gather for the Lamborghini Urus might still not be final, even the designs aren't certain yet but one thing's for sure, the objective of this supercar Lamborghini Urus is to be the Ferrari FX70 Killer.

supercarsSo how will they do it? Lamborghini Urus will have a modified version of Jota's chassis which would be lighter, Urus upgrades everything such as the body of Urus will be made solely out of carbon fiber and it will come with a active aerodynamic feature that will enhance its performance even more, plus the re-worked Jota 6.0 liter V12 engine will probably reach a powerful 800bhp and could probably perform an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds.

But changes might still take place within this few years because we'll not be able to confirm anything until at least 2011, Lamborghini Urus might be release on 2012.
