Boy do we have a varied lot of news for you today! And if today’s anything to go by, it looks like the classics are coming back in the form of the air-cooled flat six and the Toyota Supra! Read on!
The Cost Of Running A Veyron
When looking at all of these ridiculous cars with price tags larger than most of our incomes combined, we sometimes forget that the purchase price is only one small fragment of the overall cost to own one of these miraculous machines. Well, Joshua Page over at DriveTribe has made a list of every other expense you should expect if you had a Veyron sat in your garage. Tyres and wheel change? £50,000. Oil change? Upwards of £15,000. Fuel? At least £3,000 if you’re driving 2,500 miles a year. Insurance? Around £12,500 a year – ish.
Singer And Williams Team Up To Create 500hp Air-Cooled Porsche Engine
This naturally aspirated engine produced by a partnership between Singer and Williams produces 500hp, and gives hope to anyone put off by the increase in turbochargers and hybrids. It’s a 3.6-litre flat six that’s been bored to 4.0-litres, and features four camshafts and valves per cylinder. It also features both upper and lower fuel injectors and a ram air induction system to further increase power over the stock unit. But beyond that, it looks rather tasty, too!
The V8 Chainsaw
— Silodrome® (@Silodrome) August 10, 2017
This is something Jeremy Clarkson certainly needs to bring to The Grand Tour! It comes from Australia (they certainly know how to go about things!) and is built by Whitlands Engineering. I haven’t even got a tree but still want one dearly!
New Supra Spied Showing Production Headlights & Taillights
Even though you can tell there’s plenty of padding around the body to keep the angles of the design hidden from prying eyes, the new headlights and taillights are out on show and looking incredible! What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
Is the Veyron worth the money? Does a new air-cooled engine give you hope for the future? Do you now want a V8 chainsaw? As usual, let us know in the comments!
