Aston Martin intends to continue its long line of iconic sports cars that bear the “DB” moniker in 2016 with the new model DB11. It will replace DB9, which was first launched back in 2004. Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer described “DB” as a bloodline of their brand and said that it also shows the world their ambitious plan in action.
“The coming years will see Aston Martin transform not only its entire range of models, but also its scale and global presence, and the new DB11 will be central to that success,” said Palmer.
4. Bentley Bentayga ($230.000)
Described as “the world’s most powerful and fastest SUV ever”, Bentayga is expected to be a Bentley’s crown jewel and increase the company’s sales by a third or more. Combining the beauty of Bentley design with an aggressive approach to speed and ability, Bentayga takes exquisite luxury into the new territory. On the inside, this supercar is trimmed in a combination of leather, wood and metal, with the front seat featuring a 22-way adjustment and massage system and a full-length panoramic sunroof.
3. Lamborghini Huracan Spyder ($240.000)
Using a folding fabric roof rather than a complex metal arrangement to save weight, Lamborghini Huracan Spyder gives of the impression it was designed to cut through the air and become one with the sky. At the touch of a button, the roof can stow behind the driver in 17 seconds, leaving the roar of a powerful V10 engine behind and a broad horizon ahead. When it goes on sale in spring, the Spyder will offer three roof colors (red, brown, and black), 11 non-special paint colors, five interior trim packages, 17 interior colors, and many personalization options.
2. Ford GT ($400.000)
People at Ford found a very special way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the triumphant season of its legendary racing car Ford GT40. The company will launch another spiritual successor to the classic, a reboot riddled with more modern technology than ever. While it shares a legacy with classic Ford racing and performance cars, GT is a fully contemporary and functional shape that communicates modernity and pure beauty. All-new Ford GT supercar is expected to set a new standard for Ford’s innovation through performance with advances in light-weighting, aerodynamics and ultra-efficient EcoBoost engine.
1. Bugatti Chiron ($2.500.000)
Not much is known about Veyron’s successor yet, but the word on the streets is that Bugatti prepared the next big supercar that will be lighter, more nimble, and more powerful than their previous model. While its predecessor proudly wore the crown of the fastest production car for years, Chiron should take over that title since it’s expected to reach a top speed of 463 km/h. The new model, which will make its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, was named after a legendary racing driver Louis Chiron.
“In Louis Chiron, we found a worthy patron for a new model in the history of our brand. The name of the best racing driver and the most successful Bugatti driver of his time for the best super sports car of the present day – that is the ideal combination,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles.
