Yes, it's a droptop, but it's not just any droptop — the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster is the fastest, most powerful droptop the British brand has ever produced. The 6.0L V12 engine is to thank, pumping out 565 horses, and paired with a Sportshift III 7-speed transmission that helps propel the car from 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 201 mph. Other highlights include an all-new, lightweight exhaust system, carbon ceramic disc brakes, a generous helping of carbon fiber — most notably in the blacked-out grille — and three-stage adaptive damping with specially-tailored Normal, Sport, and Track modes.
There are few things in the world of motoring that bring about quite as much joy as a great concept turned production vehicle — and few are as eagerly anticipated as the Jaguar F-Type Project 7. Set to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in celebration of the 60th anniversary of its inspiration, the D-Type, this two-seater roadster will be limited to a run of just 250 cars. Sporting a 542-horsepower supercharged five-liter V8 engine, this track-ready yet street-legal racer will feature an appropriately British racing green paint job with white accents and stripes. So pull on your fire suit and driving gloves, because this throwback sports car is meant to go fast.
If you were able to pull your eyes away from World Cup Soccer this weekend for a little while, you may just have caught a bit of the 24 Hours of LeMans. And even though Porsche wasn't able to pull out a win against long-time rival Audi, that didn't stop them from releasing the 911 Carrera S Martini Racing Edition in honor of the world's oldest endurance sports car race. Sporting the signature Martini Racing stripes, this Carrera S features a 3.8-liter flat six with 400 horsepower, upgraded aerodynamics, black leather sport seats, and a Bose sound system (just in case you want to drown out the more vocal Audi supporters).
