The McLaren P1 Hybrid is a package that redefines the amount of grip, power and performance a road-legal car can produce- and AutoExpress gets to drive one!
We’ve written a few times about the wickedly efficient (perhaps most efficient car in the world) Volkswagen XL1. I recently got to see the car over at EVS27 in Barcelona. Of course, I didn’t miss the opportunity to take a video and snap a few pics…
There has been no shortage of superlatives in articles about BMW’s new i8 hybrid. It’s a beautiful, powerful, capable, technologically advanced, and relatively affordable car (compared to, say, a Ferrari 458 or Lamborghini Gallardo) that pushes BMW’s Chris Bangle-developed “flame surfacing” design language in a compelling new direction. What’s not to love? If you have […]
Volkswagen introduced the 260+ mpg Volkswagen XL1 hybrid supercar to the American press last week at the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee. While we’ve covered VW’s genre-defying XL1 in the past (and even enjoyed a vicarious Volkswagen XL1 test drive), this is the car’s first time on US shores in production […]
Volkswagen’s 260 MPG XL1 supercar is a marvel of low weight and aerodynamic design – and the XL1 has always struck us as a new breed of supercar that used all the high-tech materials and design concepts that made Porsches, Lamborghinis and Bugattis special, and applied them to a “go far”, rather than a “go […]

The Rimac Automobili Concept One is the stunningly beautiful and ridiculously fast million-dollar electric supercar that hails from the country of Croatia. It’s been on a world tour as of late, and as one might expect the engineering minds behind the Concept One haven’t been idle. Their next project, the world’s “most advanced electric bicycle”, isn’t quite what I expected.
First unveiled in 2010 as part of a joint venture between Jaguar and Formula 1 team Williams, the C-X75 Jaguar was a plug-in hybrid supercar powered by a range-extending gas-turbine engine mounted behind the seats. Here’s a video explaining the whys and hows of it all!
The Peugeot Onyx diesel plug-in hybrid electric vehicle will race at the United kingdom’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, a hill climbing event in England. Equipped with a mid-mounted 3.7 liter, V8 600 HP HDi FAP diesel engine as well as an 80 horsepower electric motor, this plug-in hybrid is more than just a pretty face.
The Volkswagen XL1 is like any other supercar. It’s long and low, with the same alluring blend of science and art and physics. Getting in requires opening gullwing doors and oh-so-carefully climbing over a wide sill before sliding into a lightweight seat … but what’s it like to drive?
The covers are off the Icona Vulcano. and we can honestly say it’s a supercar with looks on par with anything produced by Ferrari. Oh, and don’t forget that 950 horsepower hybrid drivetrain! What more does an up-and-coming Chinese businessman need.
