The 2020 Audi RS Q8 is the fastest & sportiest Audi SUV yet. A 591-horsepower V8 plus mild hybrid system gives it a top speed of 190MPH with loads of torque. It features adaptive AWD, an active anti-roll system & rear-wheel steering. Flagship features & finish from its moon roof to its 23-inch Pirelli P Zero tires mark it as a mean machine.
The world’s first Mercedes-Maybach SUV has arrived. The 2021 GLS 600 features two-tone candy paint, 22-inch rims, and an interior that looks like next year’s Learjet Liberty—everything you expect of the marque.

McLaren is rolling out a new limited-edition range of exotic supercars under a fresh moniker: The Ultimate Collection. The first in the series is a nearly $2 million open-top roadster called the Elva. With no roof, windshield, or side glass, this is a track car that’s technically road legal. Powered by a 803-horsepower twin-turbo V8, it hits 62 MPH sub 3 and blasts out to 124 MPH in 6.7 seconds. Only 399 will be made.
Ferrari’s all-new Roma Coupe is a 611 horsepower 2-door powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 & driven by an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

And with its clean flowing lines and balanced design the Roma is a more low-key Ferrari, if such a thing is possible at 198 MPH.
Daniel Craig has a cool job. In addition to playing the icon of cool, James Bond in films, the actor moonlights as an exotic car designer. True. He teamed up with his pals at Aston Martin to design the coolest Christmas gift we’ve ever seen, an ultra limited-edition DBS Superleggera with custom features, like the wheels seen in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service & an exclusive blue on blue color scheme. The 715-horsepower V12 is cool, too. Listed as one of Neiman Marcus’ annual “Fantasy Gifts,” only 007 of these supercars will be built.

The 999-horsepower carbon-body RM-X2 from Belarus-based Ramsmobile is an absolutely ridiculous ride. It’s bulletproof and it floats, so it can be driven on the water with power coming from a jet propulsion system. A futuristic gold-trimmed interior includes features like electronic hookahs and a bio-hazard filtering air purification system. It rides on air-adjust suspension and 24-inch wheels. Multiple motor options are available including GM’s 6.2-liter LT5 V8, the same powerplant used in the Corvette C7 ZR1.

Its 70 kWh of on-board energy delivers a 250-mile range. And it recharges to full in just 18 minutes with the world’s fastest charging system. Definite contender for coolest electric yet.

It cranks out a ridiculous 1000 horsepower with its tuned 6.2-liter Dodge SRT-Demon supercharged Hellcat V8 engine.
The new Ferrari is here. The hybrid one they’ve been working on for 6 years. Yes! The forthcoming SF90 Stradale is every bit the postmodern Italian supercar.

Beyond that details get sketchy. Keep eyes peeled for the official drop.
