Gorgeous only begins to describe the Tramontana ($660,000), which features design cues both classic and modern, timeless and futuristic, from both F1 cars and fighter jets. And it has the performance to back up its stunning looks, with a central 5.5 liter, twin-turbo V12 pumping out 720hp, a 100% carbon fiber chassis, 20-inch wheels, and safety that passes official FIA regulations. If you happen to be in the market, act quickly — only 12 a year will be built. [Thanks, Bob]
The world is a busy place, and sometimes folks just don't have time to research their next car purchase — especially when their cars are like this. The Otto Club ($13500 - $35000) is a Boston-based club that offers members the chance to drive some of the world's greatest rides. Pricing is based on a points system, with the Red level offering 15,000 points — about 20-30 days of driving for $13,500. The Black level, $19,500 per year, offers 30,000 points, or around 40-60 days of driving. Cars available include the Lamborghini Murcielago, the Ferrari 430 Coupe, and Bentley Continental GT. Unfortunately, the service is currently only available in the Boston area (they have a clubhouse opening soon in downtown), but we spoke with the company's president and he assured us that the company does plan to expand in the future. Right now though, if you're in Boston and have both the means and a love of cars, check it out.
Wow. The 2008 R8 ($TBA; Q2 2007) is Audi's first mid-engine sports cars, packing a high-revving V8 engine that's good for 420 horsepower, in addition to all-wheel drive and the sexiest styling we've seen in a very long time. Built on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform, the R8 also features Xenon plus lights, LED rear lights, 18-inch aluminum wheels, an audio system with 7-inch monitor, and Leather/Alcantara seats inside a super modern cockpit. Our favorite feature though is the LEDs used in the engine bay to make the R8's beastly V8 visible even at night. [via]
