RM Sotheby’s recently auctioned the world’s first and only Bugatti Chiron Profilée for approximately $10.6-million USD. This hypercar features a bespoke design with a sweeping fixed tail at the rear, which ensures stability as well as control right up to the Profilée’s 236 mph (380 km/h) top speed by increasing downforce over the rear axle.
Here’s an inside look at the Tesla Megafactory in Lathrop, California, one of the largest utility-scale battery factories in North America. While you won’t find a Tesla Super Pool here, the factory is capable of producing 10,000 Megapack units each year, equal to 40 GWh of clean energy storage.
The driver of a new Tesla Model Y was captured asleep at the wheel on I-15 in California earlier today, and we’re assuming that autopilot with full self-driving capability was enabled. If the latter turns out to be true, it means the vehicle can drive itself from a highway’s on-ramp to off-ramp, including suggesting lane changes, navigating interchanges, automatically engaging the turn signal and taking the correct exit.
The BMW M Hybrid V8 competed in the 24 Hours of Daytona last week, and it could be a preview of the automaker’s first supercar since the M1 back in 1979-1981. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 engine, paired with a hybrid drive system, making a combined 631 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. In 2024, the BMW M Team WRT will prepare for the debut of the car in the FIA WEC.
Similar to the GAC Barchetta, the Bizzarrini Giotto supercar is one you probably never knew existed, and in this case, for good reason. Giotto Bizzarrini established the Italy-based Bizzarrini company in 1964 and produced the 5300 GT. Unfortunately, the company went under in 1969, but Kuwaiti investor Rezam Al Roumi acquired the name two years ago.

Some may be fooled by Pontiac Fiero-based replicas, while others instantly know that this is the world’s only Ferrari F40 Competizione finished in Nardo Gray, and it just sold for a whopping $2.75-million at auction.

Due to all of the leaks and prototype testing, we know have a pretty good idea of what the Lamborghini Aventador successor will probably look like. What stands out the most are its two hexagonal tailpipes located between the LED taillights and possibly a large rear diffuser that is lightly camouflaged.
Some prefer the look of Tim Burton’s Batmobile, many other fans would rather have one featured in the 1966-1968 television series. One Ohio man decided to build a 1966 Batmobile replica that appears to be straight from the show, complete with functional guns on each side of the vehicle, a smokescreen, and numerous other buttons.
Sleek, stylish and functional, the Audi Activesphere Concept EV is a shapeshifting vehicle that can turn into a pickup truck at the push of a button.
