This is not a supercar, just the ZEDRO Notorious, an exotic car based on the Infiniti G37. The Lebanese shop based in the UAE is capable of tuning the factory G37 V6 engine to an eye-watering 1,250 horsepeower, with upgrades that include a twin-turbocharger system that enable it to sprint from 0-62 mph in ust 3.4 seconds. There’s also a tamer starter model that can hit 62 mph in a more normal 5.2 seconds. Read more for a video and additional information.

Top Gear is back at it again, and this time, they give us an up-close look at the new Ferrari Roma. They point out the similarities between the Roma’s nose, and the front of the Monza SP1 / SP2, mainly their prominent splitters. Another feature they share is the bar that separates each headlight into two sections. For those wondering, the Roma does have ultra cramped rear seats.

The Lamborghini Concept S is based on the Gallardo and sports a speedster (Barchetta) body that was designed by Luc Donckerwolke. It made its debut in 2005 at the Geneva Motor Show and intended to be a modern interpretation of the single-seat roadsters of the past. What set it apart from other roadsters is the ‘saute-vent’ (French for ‘change wind’) instead of a traditional windscreen, dividing the interior into two distinct compartments by continuing the bodywork between the seats, which also serves as an air inlet feeding the mid-mounted 5.0 L V10 engine.

The Ferrari Roma has been officially unveiled, and this two-seat coupe is as stylish as they come with a minimalist design that pays homage to life in the capital of Italy during the 1950s and ’60s. You could even see a few design cues snagged from the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso and 250 GT 2+2 upon closer inspection. It’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 that generates 612 horsepower and 561 pound-feet (760 Newton-meters) in this application, paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Limited to just 399-units worldwide and priced at $1.69-million, the McLaren Elva is a roadster in its purest form, or basically a vehicle without a windshield or roof. Why? The vehicle was designed to encapsulate its occupants in an aerodynamic “bubble” by channeling air through the Elva’s nose and out a vent at the front of the vehicle just ahead of the passenger area. The active deflector rises up to 5.9 inches and helps shoot the turbulent air through the front vent before it makes its way over the passenger area.

The Maserati GranTurismo made its debut in 2007, but unfortunately, the automaker has decided to end its production run. To commemorate the model, they built a onne-off GranTurismo Zéda with a unique exterior designed by Centro Stile Maserati.

The Range Rover Hunter, designed by Oliver Cattell-Ford, is an off-road supercar that needs to exist. Unlike other supercars, this one boasts variable ride height, which means that it can traverse just about any kind of terrain, especially since its wheel arches move independently from the body, thus the wheel gaps can be kept proper regardless of the ride height.
