First drive in $2M super car Italian supercar manufacturer Pagani doesn't make very many cars and the ones it does make are very, very expensive. At next month's Geneva Motor Show Pagani will unveil it's next new model, the Pagani Huayra Roadster. Only 100 will be made and each will cost at least $2.4 million. Or, rather, they did cost that much. They've all already been sold. The Huayra Roadster is more than simply a convertible version of the hard-roofed Pagani Huayra you may already be familiar with. That car could be had for a mere $1.4 million. Named after an Andean wind god, the Pagani Huayra Roadster, like the hard-top version is made almost entirely from lightweight, but expensive, carbon fiber. Pagani's founder, Horacio Pagani, had been an in-house carbon fiber expert at nearby Lamborghini before leaving to start his own company. The Huayra Roadster will have two different roofs. One is a removable mostly clear carbon-fiber top that resembles a g..
Ford CEO: City congestion is a business issue Plenty of drivers complain about rush hour traffic, but some have more to gripe about than others. Bangkok has the worst evening rush hour traffic in the world for a second consecutive year, according to GPS manufacturer TomTom. The results were compiled after TomTom tracked a years-worth of traffic in 390 cities across 48 countries. Here is the 2017 ranking of cities with the most severe evening rush hour traffic: Bangkok, Thailand Mexico City, Mexico Bucharest, Romania Jakarta, Indonesia Moscow, Russia Chongqing, China Istanbul, Turkey St. Petersburg, Russia Zhuhai, China Santiago, Chile Guangzhou, China Shijiazhuang, China Shenzhen, China Los Angeles, U.S. Beijing, China TomTom's senior traffic expert Nick Cohn said that Thailand -- and many other big cities at the top of the congestion ranking -- have become victims of their own success. Growing economies and surging populations translate into more traffic and commuters. "I..
Ferrari's fastest convertible Ferrari will soon unveil the fastest and most powerful production car the Italian luxury performance brand has ever produced. Powered by a 790 horsepower V12 engine, the Ferrari 812 Superfast, true to its name, will be able to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds and will have a top speed of 211 miles per hour. This won't be the fastest Ferrari, period, but it will be the fastest Ferrari (RACE) model to come down the automaker's "regular" production line in Maranello, Italy. The 949 horsepower hybrid LaFerrari, for instance, is a lot more powerful, but all 499 of those were hand built at a price of $1.4 million each. The 812 Superfast will be a great deal more affordable, relatively speaking. While Ferrari has not yet announced pricing for the 812 Superfast, prices for the the model it replaces, the F12 Berlinetta, start at $320,000. Ferrari promises "a full, rich exhaust sound" from the big 6.5-liter engine mounted..
