Porsche describe the 918 as a unique combination of performance and efficiency, the 918 Spyder embodies the essence of the Porsche idea: it combines pedigree motor racing technology with excellent everyday utility, and maximum performance with minimum consumption. The task faced by the development team was to create the super sports car for the next decade with a highly efficient and powerful hybrid drive. Developing the car from scratch, appropriately beginning with a sheet of white paper, allowed the team to come up with a no-compromise concept. The entire car was designed around the hybrid drive. The 918 Spyder therefore demonstrates the potential of the hybrid drive to a degree never seen before: the parallel improvement of both efficiency and performance without one being at the cost of the other. This is the idea that has made the Porsche 911 the most successful sports car in the world for 50 years. In short, the 918 Spyder will act as the gene pool for the Porsche sports cars of the future.

VŪHL 05 – AN INNOVATIVE NEW LIGHTWEIGHT SUPERCAR FOR ROAD AND TRACK

03/07/13

Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, London, July 3, 2013 - the VŪHL 05 is an innovative mid-engined two-seater born of a motorsport heritage.
Guillermo Echeverria senior, the father of its designers Guillermo and Iker Echeverria, was a professional driver who built and successfully raced his own cars for 30 years. The sons inherited his passion and knowledge and added qualifications in transportation design. Guillermo Junior has direct experience of the performance car industry, while Iker won the Mexican QUORUM Industrial Design Award in 2007 when still a student - he was not only up against fellow scholars but senior designers, agencies and universities.
The brothers subsequently formed their own Mexico City/Detroit-based design agency, ETXE, which having worked on projects for numerous global brands then penned the 05 – a lightweight supercar for road and track in the vein of the BAC Mono, Ariel Atom, KTM X-Bow etc.
Said Iker: “Our background means the VŪHL 05 has been developed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. We were determined to create a highly intuitive machine that was both stirringly fast and immense fun to drive – a car we ourselves would want to own. We have endeavoured to endow it with class-leading ergonomics and a contemporary silhouette of striking proportions, and the aim of uncompromising build quality has underpinned the project since day one.”

ULTRA-LOW MILEAGE 1958 JAGUAR XK150 SHOWS ITS CLAWS


03/07/13


A concours standard 1958 Jaguar XK150 ‘S’ Roadster with a fascinating history and just 500 miles on the clock will be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at its Classic Sale on Saturday 27th July.

Estimated at between £175,000 to £195,000, this particular model has benefited from a restoration project lasting nine years which was only completed in 2009.

The main reason for the incredibly low mileage is that its first owner, a Mr JJ Dolce of Salt Lake City, Utah, who was a speed enthusiast, barrel rolled the car at the Bonneville Speed Trial in 1959, not long after he took ownership. Following the spectacular crash, the car’s remains were bought in 1960 where it sat in dry storage for the next 40 years.

Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “This is the most amazing XK150 that Silverstone Auctions has ever seen. Not only is it in a superb condition thanks to a painstaking restoration project, but it also has a fantastic and fascinating story to tell.

“Also, with just 500 miles on the clock, this has surely got to be one of the lowest mileage cars of its type in existence, and we’re delighted to offer it at the Silverstone Classic Sale.”
