Supercars | Nissan GTR Supercars

Nissan GTRThe 2011 Nissan GTR, so what's new? it looks pretty much the same exteriorly speaking, of course facelifts are made not just to amuse us but also to get more of the aerodynamics it needs, aside from that some of its equipments have also been upgraded, the good news is the result of these upgrades prove to make a difference on its power increasing it to 523bhp at 6400rpm and the torque improves to a 451lb ft all the way from 3200-6000rpm, but the bad news is the UK importer took this opportunity to raise the price of the Nissan GTR repositioning it to a new level.

Let's Supercarsget into the 2011 Nissan GTR upgrades, on the aerodynamics Nissan has increased its downforce by 10% that came along with the enlarge bumpers and grille openings which improves the stability of this car, I guess we should also mention the new Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT Tyre that has a new compound that improves the grip and by pairing it with a lighter alloy wheels, the tyre responsiveness to vertical loads have been improved.

They've include a feature that helps you manoeuvre at low speeds, the new two-wheel-drive mode will temporarily take place in a speed below 6mph while the steering wheel is being steered more than half way.

Nissan also managed to improve the fuel economy and the emission of the 2011 Nissan GTR thanks to an ultra-low metal catalyst and tweaked boost pressures. A sportier phase were pretty much made on this car's interior, they even let you choose from 2 types of sport seats, from Recaro Black leather appointed bucket seat with red side flashes that comes complete with a dark headlining and red flash on the gear lever or a premium leather covered seat available in black or light grey, a light gray colored headlining providing a lighter feel to the interior.

The 2011 Nissan GTR price jumped from £59,400 to a whopping £69,950 an unimaginable £10,550 price increase which only shows that Nissan has been undercharging this sports car for quite some time.

Supercars | 918 Spyder Supercars

UpdatesSupercars on the Porsche supercar known as the 918 Spyder Hybrid is right on track and will be released in the expected time on 2013 which is formally declared by Porsche President Matthias Muller. We've been impressed with the features and numbers shown on concept of the 918 Spyder Hybrid, and since they're still hooked up in their work on the concept until the end of 2010, they've announced to show all the facts, figures and prices of the real thing in early 2011 and it will be on sale on 2013.

Let's918 Spyder take a look back at the sneak peek of this concept car, the 918 Spyder Hybrid carries on what the Carrera GT left off, it will be equipped with 3 electric motors backing up its V8 petrol engine, this car can be as silent as the night (on EV mode), and could run enormously fast even faster than its predecessor the Carrera GT, not only faster but also much efficient with the numbers 90mpg and environment friendly number of 70g/km of CO2 when drove gently. 918 Spyder could be the first supercar to be driven with the earth smiling, Let's just hope that the real thing in 2013 sticks up to those numbers.

sources suggest that the 918 Spyder is probably going to cost around €650,000.

Supercars | Sesto Elemento Supercars

SupercarsLambo's concept teaser that had us on the edge of our seats has finally been revealed, introducing the Sesto Elemento, which starred on the eve of the 2010 Paris motor show, previewed the future of Lamborghini cars. Sesto Elemento is the Italian for sixth element, which makes a lot of sense since the sixth element Sesto Elementois carbon which this supercar is constructed from and helping it achieve the kerbweight of under 1000kg, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento weighs just 999kg that features a 4 wheel drive with a 5.2 V10 engine, it is pretty amazing.

The main component of the Sesto Elemento is a carbonfiber monocoque, nano technology is also featured in its paint providing a shimmer effect, the wheels, brakes and suspensions are also made from carbon, the tailpipes are constructed from Pyrosic (a glass and ceramic composite that can withstand 900 degrees) while the subframe and rear axle suspension are made of aluminum.

Just imagine Gallardo's 562bhp 5.2 liter V10 engine installed in a supercar with a kerbweight of only 999kg and also features a 4 wheel drive system, what do you get? a Veyron Killer perhaps, Sesto Elemento can sprint from a standpoint to 62mph in just 2.5 seconds, the top speed is said to be "well over 185mph" which only means that you'll be running out of roads before you reach a speed of more than that, aside from its striking numbers the benefit of being lighter also means lesser emission and lesser fuel consumption and what makes it even more exciting is that it doesn't only stops better but it also turns sharper than ever.

Of course not all the technologies on a concept car will be used on the real thing, but it is definite that the next V12 Lamborghini supercar will have a carbonfiber tub (and knowing that the Murcielago already has CFRP panels) we expect to see even more of the Sesto Elemento features on the upcoming models of Lamborghini cars.
