The Most Highly Anticipated Future Supercars

AUTS - Anticipated Future SupercarsThere are “cool” cars and “nice” cars, “hot” cars and “sweet” cars, but only a rare breed of automobile gets to be called a supercar. These are the best-of-the-best, combining first-class luxury and other-worldly performance into a single unforgettable vehicle—and for the drivers lucky enough to own these four-wheeled monuments of engineering and design, they offer driving experiences that are second to none.

Automakers are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to the next generation of supercars, creating something of an arms race between the best car companies on the planet. And that’s a very good thing indeed for automotive enthusiasts, since it means the next great supercar is always just around the corner.

If you’re among the wealthy elite and fancy yourself an automotive enthusiast, definitely keep an eye on the horizon for these upcoming supercars.

2017 McLaren P14

The McLaren renaissance started in 2009 with the introduction of the 12C and the “Super Series” models, and it’s slated to reach mass hysteria in 2017 with the release of the P14. As the replacement to the 650S, next year’s P14 will be in a league of its own when it eventually makes the leap from the test track to the open road. Car and Driver reports that the McLaren P14 will be powered by a retuned version of the proven 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8, and that the aggressive-looking supercar is expected to top 680 horsepower when final specs are released.

2017 Ford GT

The limited edition 2017 GT is the culmination of over a century of automotive passion and excellence, representing the most technologically innovative car Ford has ever built. The Ford GT was designed to dominate on the track, turn heads on the road, and provide the ultimate driving experience. Ford is expected to manufacture just 1,000 GT models, already making it one of the rarest and most highly sought after supercars.

2017 Chevrolet Corvette Zora ZR1

GM has been teasing a mid-engine Corvette for half a century, and it looks like driving enthusiasts will finally get what they’ve been asking for in 2017 with the Zora ZR1 C8. Moving the mass of the engine closer to the rear tires will improve the Corvette’s acceleration and braking, and it also allows Chevy designers to update the Corvette’s iconic (but albeit dated) visual appeal. The ZR1 is expected to be a low volume production, so try to get your hands on one now before you have to wait even longer to experience the mid-engine Corvette you’ve been dreaming of.

2019 Porsche 960

Porsche has reportedly been investigating a new mid-engine supercar since 2011, and all signs point to the 960 being that car. Not a lot is known about the 960, except of course that it’s one of the most highly anticipated cars Porsche has ever designed. Motor Authority says that the 960 is expected to arrive in 2019 and should generate 650+ horsepower from a 3.9-liter, turbocharged flat-8 engine. Maxim is dreaming a little bigger, speculating that the 960 could employ twin versions of the Boxster S’s 2.5-liter engine making a 700-horsepower 5.0-liter turbo eight.

2018 Maserati Alfieri

What do you get when you take a Maserati sports car, make it lighter, and give it a lower center of gravity? The next high-performance Maserati supercar, of course. The Alfieri is slated as a challenger to the performance compact “2+2” throne currently held by the Porsche 911. The Alfieri is rumored to have a 520-horsepower twin-turbo V6 under the hood. If that’s not enough to make the discerning automotive enthusiast salivate, just get a look at these stunning concept images to understand why critics and drivers alike are already hailing the Alfieri as one of the most strikingly beautiful sports cars of the (not-so-distant) future.

2017 Bugatti Chiron

Got a couple extra million in the bank? Good news, you can own the world’s fasted production car. The Bugatti Chiron is a 1,500-horsepower shock-and-awe campaign. Stuffed inside the beautifully designed, Le Mans-inspired Chiron is a quad-turbo (that’s four turbos if you’re counting) 8.0-liter W-16. The second set of turbochargers don’t even come online until 3,800 RPM, which means drivers are in for a mule kick of power even after their hearts sink in their chest with the initial blast of raw, unfettered horsepower. The Chiron is reported to reach 62 mph in 2.5 seconds, and even with a price tag of $2.6 million the limited run of vehicles isn’t expected to last much longer.

2019 Lamborghini Asterion

Luxury and elegance are at the heart of the Lamborghini Asterion, the latest concept car from one of the very best ultra-premium carmakers in the world. The car’s aggressive, sensuous lines are the things of dreams for automotive enthusiasts, but it’s what drivers can’t see that might be the most exciting thing about the Asterion. Harnessing advanced hybrid technology, the Asterion can nimbly handle urban driving under electric power only while still offering drivers the option of unleashing the aspirated V10 engine on unsuspecting patches of asphalt.

5 Street Legal Car Mods to Boost Performance and Appearance

You like to make a statement. You like to be seen. You don’t settle for good enough, you want the best, no matter what. Then why are you stuck driving around that stock car that’s like so many others just like it on the road when there are dozens of ways to modify your ride and make it a true original?

Whether you want to make your car faster, louder, sleeker, or sexier, there are lots of ways to make your vehicle your own. But what about the legality of modifying your car? There are some things you can’t do, like put flashing red and blue lights on top of your vehicle or blackout window tint on the front windshield, but there’s no shortage of things you can do. Here are just a few of the best street legal car modifications that can help take your vehicle to the next level.

Aero-Kits

AUTS - Street Legal Car Mods

Aerodynamics is one of the most important factors when it comes to how a car handles, feels, and performs—and it can also have a pretty big impact on how a car looks, too. That’s why aerodynamic upgrade kits, or aero-kits, are incredibly popular with car enthusiasts. An aero-kit can make your car look like a sleek and stealthy dragster, and depending on how you drive (and what you drive) you may notice significant improvements in key performance areas like top speed, cornering speed, and handling. To capture the aggressive look and performance of a wind tunnel tested racecar, go for a full body aero-kit that includes air dams, skirts, diffusers, and a rear spoiler.

OEM, aftermarket, and custom aero-kits are available. And if you’re thinking of having your car painted or wrapped, have the aero-kit installed first so the new body panels match the rest of your vehicle.

Turbocharger/Supercharger

Turbochargers and superchargers are known as “forced induction systems,” meaning they compress the air flowing into the engine to provide more power. Some forced induction systems can boost a car’s horsepower by as much as 50% or more, which means a turbocharger or supercharger can make transform a super mild car into a super wild one in an instant. But which forced induction system is right for your car? That depends. A high-performance tuning shop can help you choose between a turbocharger and a supercharger, but in the meantime here is a quick look at some of the pros and cons of each system to help you with the decision.

Turbocharger

  • Pro: Greater power to size ratio (good for smaller engine displacements)
  • Pro: Power boost delivered at higher RPM range
  • Con: “Turbo lag” delays useful boost
  • Con: Installation requires additional plumbing (more expensive)

Supercharger

  • Pro: No lag, immediate power delivery
  • Pro: Cheaper to install, easier to maintain
  • Con: Less efficient than turbochargers
  • Con: Long-term reliability concerns

Performance Exhaust

An aftermarket exhaust can give your car a throaty, intimidating rumble that turns heads well before your vehicle is in sight—but that’s not all. Because performance exhaust systems eliminate the restrictive bends commonly found in OEM exhaust systems, the greatly improve exhaust flow which means increased horsepower and torque. Performance exhaust systems can also give your vehicle a stylish flair thanks to polished chrome tips or muffler placement at the sides of your vehicle.

Note: Refer to Florida law regarding motor vehicle noise to learn about the legal sound limit level.

Window Tint

If your aim is purely to improve the appearance of your vehicle, window tint is one of the best street legal car modifications you can make to your ride. Dark window tint can give your whip a mean, menacing look. And if you happen to be among Miami’s rich and famous, window tint can also provide some relief and protection from South Florida’s relentless (and notorious) paparazzi. However, there are limits to how dark window tint can be before it crosses the threshold of “street legal.” A professional window tint installer in Miami can give you specific details about car window tinting laws in Florida.

Vinyl Car Wrap

Some car mods are almost unrecognizable; others are impossible to ignore. If you want your car to be seen and remembered, a vinyl car wrap is the way to go. With a custom wrap you can completely transform the look of your ride. Snakeskin? No problem. Chrome? Definitely. A custom themed design? If you can dream it up, vinyl wrap installers can put it down. In addition to making your car stand out, a vinyl wrap also protects the factory paint and finish underneath from scratches, fading, and corrosion. Some of the most popular types and styles of custom car wraps include:

  • Color changing car wraps
  • Chrome car wraps (including colored chrome)
  • 3D animal print car wraps (snake, tiger, rhino, etc.)
  • Custom theme car wraps
  • Matte car wraps

When in Doubt: Check the Motor Vehicle Code

If you’re thinking about doing something wildly outlandish to your car and aren’t sure about the legality of the mod, refer to the motor vehicle code (MVC) in your state. The same book of codes that dictates how fast you may drive on the highway and whether you can make a right turn at a red light also outlines the requirements your vehicle must meet in order to be “street legal.” The Department of Motor Vehicles in your state can steer you toward applicable MVCs regarding the modifications planned for your car. Note: If you’re modifying a car for use at the racetrack or drag strip, MVC regulations generally do not apply and are not enforced (as long as you keep that souped-up whip on the track).
