BYD Yangwang U9 Electric Hypercar
Priced from approximately $233,398 USD, the 2024 BYD Yangwang U9 electric hypercar wants to take on Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porsche with its quad electric motor setup. These four independent electric motors generate 1,287 hp and 1,239 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 62 mph in just 2.36 seconds.



Unlike other hypercars, the U9 features BYD’s DiSus-X Intelligent Body Control System, which enables it to achieve the maximum adjustable suspension travel of up to 75mm, while offering a peak single-axis lifting speed of up to 500mm/s. Technology wise, it features the DiLink150 intelligent platform, powered by customized 4nm 5G chips. It’s basically designed for track driving, complete with an intelligent racing assistant that provides extensive information on nearly 30 racetracks across China. Inside, you’ll find two 14-way adjustable seats and a Dynaudio Evidence Series high-end audio system.

This is the World’s Only Bugatti Chiron Super Sport ’57 One of One Hypercar

This is the World’s Only Bugatti Chiron Super Sport ’57 One of One Hypercar

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport '57 One of One Reveal
Many auto enthusiasts dream of one day owning a Type 57 SC Atlantic, but know that only three are known to exist. One fan fell in love after seeing a pristine example at the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard 20-years ago. This is why her husband ordered the world’s only Bugatti Chiron Super Sport ’57 One of One edition hypercar in celebration of her 70th birthday.



After the request was made, Bugatti Lead Designer Jascha Straub traveled to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain where the original car was the central art piece in a temporary exhibition called “Motion, Autos, Art, Architecture” to observe the paintwork swatch the team created under different light conditions. The team wanted it to be completely authentic to the original. Five-spoke Super Sport wheels, combining polished chrome and the same blue as the original, along vibrant chrome accents, finish off the exterior look. Inside, ‘Gaucho’ leather can be found throughout, but the Atlantic’s silhouette hand-stitched in ‘Lightning Blue’ can be seen on the door panels as well as a center console sporting a custom inlay that proclaims ‘57 One of One’.

2025 Ferrari F250 Hypercar Spied Testing at Pista Di Fiorano Racetrack

2025 Ferrari F250 Hypercar Spied Testing at Pista Di Fiorano Racetrack

Ferrari F250 Hypercar Pista Di Fiorano
If you’re still wondering what the LaFerrari successor might look like, this 2025 Ferrari F250 hypercar test mule should be able to provide an early look. It was spotted at the Pista Di Fiorano, a private racetrack owned by Ferrari, in full camouflage, complete with a large rear wing and massive air intakes as well vents.

The rumored powerplant is a twin-turbocharged V6 engine, paired with at least three electric motors, making a combined 1,000+ hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. We should get more information as its 2024 reveal draws closer, but there are reportedly 599 coupes and 199 spiders planned for the 2025 model year. As for pricing, the LaFerrari was priced from $1.5-million USD, so the F250 might start at $2+ million.

Up-Close Look Inside a Bugatti Bolide Hypercar and its Futuristic Cockpit

Based on the Chiron, the $4.36-million Bugatti Bolide is limited to just 40-units worldwide, which means very few people are able to get an up-close look inside the hypercar. Thanks to an all-new lightweight and high-strength monocoque, every detail of its interior has been exquisitely crafted for this track-only vehicle.

The first thing you’ll notice is a new seating position that leans rearwards into the Bolide, enabling the driver’s heels to sit slightly raised and for the passenger to be optimally angled towards the nose of the vehicle. This is the same setup found in some of the world’s most extreme race cars. Surprisingly, there are no parts nor trim levels shared with the Chiron family, as the Bolide features exclusive optimized racing seats, a high-tech steering wheel and a host of safety tools. For those wondering about the engine, it’s powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0L W16 engine generating 1,578 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
