Now, Maserati GranCabrio 2018 sports car is probably the most sought after car in Vietnam. Maserati that’s is the new car model has been introduced to the market of Vietnam GranCabrio sports cars. It is based on the design style of Pininfarina. Pininfarina who is a well-known designer associated with more than 70 percent of Ferrari products that also include the model of F12 Berlinetta.

At this new version in 2018, Bi-Xenon headlamps are incorporated LED daytime running lights and redesigned bezel details. The advantage of this improvement is that it reduces the GranCabrio’s 0.37 Cd, 0.33 Cd. That increases the vehicle’s flexibility and stability and improves fuel economy.

If someone owns Maserati GranCabrio, owners can personalize their styles with a lot of selection of exterior colors. There are 16 colors and 14 options for the 20-inch wheels, plus a choice of 9 colors for the brake clutch. The grille of the Maserati GranCabrio is wider. It is re-designed in an angular direction. The two-way inlet is eliminated the curve, so harmonizing style with front grille.

The interior of this car is completely hand-made. The head restraints are embroidered with embossed logo or hand embroidered with contrasting highlights. Particularly with this GranCabrio, Maserati has combined with Poltrona Frau that’s the world famous leather brand over 100 years to equip this exclusive leather car.

The GranTouring engine was assembled from Ferrari’s Maranello factory. It is a V8 with a 90 degree angle. It gives a maximum output of 460 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque. This power combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission ZF provides a smooth and fast acceleration of 100 km / h in just 4.9 seconds. This was supposed to hit the maximum mark of a maximum of 288 km / h for GrandCabrio Sport and 291 km / h for GranCabrio MC.

Ettore Bugatti was the founder of the French car manufacturer and started production in early 1909 in Molsheim, Alsace which used to be a German city. His car designs were art-like and beautiful, and he had one son by the name of Jean Bugatti. He also jumped into the business at a young age and helped his father to construct sensational racing cars that assisted them in earning several wins in racing.

Jean Bugatti, unfortunately, died at the age of 30 and his father continued running the business until 1947. In 1960, part of the business was sold to a company that constructed airplane parts, and in 1990 an Italian entrepreneur decided to jump-start the business again to produce exclusive sports cars. The Bugatti company is now owned by Volkswagen, and it continues to produce high-performance and luxurious sports cars. Let’s take a look at some of the most iconic Bugatti’s since the company came into existence.

1. Bugatti EB 110

This is a Bugatti with a unique Italian twist. The car was constructed with carbon fibre and aluminium and featured a 6-speed manual gearbox that could effortlessly shift gears under high stress. It also came equipped with coil springs and double wish suspension along with a 3.5-litre quad-turbo V12 engine. It managed to produce 524bhp at around 8,000 rpm.

2. Bugatti Type 251

After World War II and the death of Jean and Ettore Bugatti, the car manufacturer attempted to rejuvenate the business by building the Type 251. It featured a 2.5 litre straight eight engine that was mounted transversely directly behind the driver. It featured an oversquare engine with a 68.5 stroke and a 76mm bore. In 1956, it entered the French Grand Prix but retired after 18 laps as it wasn’t a very competitive car at all.

3. Bugatti Type 101 C Antem Coupe

This was an amazing small car that looked every bit Bugatti from the rear to the front. The car was constructed in 1951 and went into production in 1956. The engine produces 135hp and was built after World War II to revive the company. It also featured a manual 5-speed gearbox and was rear wheel drive.

4. Bugatti Veyron

This is undoubtedly the most intense production car in the world that can be driven on the road. It is also the fastest car to 60km/h and is considered a technical achievement for the car company. It produces over 1,000hp through two V8 engines and comes equipped with ten radiators to handle everything from the engine cooling system to the AC. The top speed of the Bugatti Veyron is 253mph, and it can maintain that speed for 12 minutes before it runs out of fuel.

5. The Bugatti Royale

Also known as Type 41, the car went into production from 1927 to 1933. It is a huge, luxury vehicle that was initially intended to be sold to royalty. Unfortunately, royalty didn’t buy expensive cars, and therefore only six were ever made where a total of 3 were successfully sold. It featured a 12-litre engine and weighed a whopping 750 lbs.

The origins of Audi’s name stems from the Latin translation of August Horch’s last name. “Horch” translates to “listen” in German and in Latin it means Audi. The four rings found within the Audi logo represent the four automobile companies that merged together to create its predecessor company known as Auto Union. There’s no denying that Audi develops some of the most extraordinary engines across the globe. With that in mind, we decided to compile a list of the best Audi vehicles of all time.

1. Aui Quattro: 1980 – 1991

Quattro means four in Italian, and it’s the name that was given to the first production car from Audi that featured AWD. This was also the first AWD car that featured a turbo engine. This car dominated the Rally circuits and managed to win a total of 8 World Rally Championships thanks to its turbocharged engine and AWD system.

2. Audi R8: 2006 – Present

Our list will not be complete without mentioning the R8. The polarising looks and the advanced aluminium frame on Audi’s R8 has made it one of the most sought-after sports vehicles on the market today. The R8 name was taken from the R8 LMP prototype and is based on the platform of Lamborghini’s Gallardo. The R8 is considered one of the best handling cars in the world and also the most beautiful.

3. DKW Monza: 1956

Utilising an ultra-lightweight body made from plastic along with an Auto Union chassis, the DKW Monza managed to set a total of 5 world records in Italy on the Monza racecourse. This small built sports car was extremely popular in the United States where it only made 44 horsepower. However, due to its lightweight body, it could reach a speed of up to 140km/h.

4. Horch 26/65: 1907

The Audi company we all know and love today is the final stage of Auto Union AG. There was initially a group of 4 car companies in Germany that made significant contributions to the evolution and engineering of the automobile during the 1900’s. The Horch 26/65 was the first production car that featured a six cylinder engine. The car was extremely popular in both racing and production.

5. Audi RS6/RS6 Avant: 2002 – Present

The Audi RS6, along with its wagon counterpart (Avant) have the motoring industry a vehicle that boasts with super-car power in a well-tailored suit. Audi produced the most powerful car in their second generation RS6 which provided a staggering 571hp. This power was insane in a family car which made it extremely popular across the globe.

6. Audi TT: 1998 – Present

The Audi TT received its name from the famous Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT). It was first presented in 1995 and went into production three years later. Initially, the Audi TT received negative comments from the motor industry due to several high-speed accidents. However, thanks to a rear spoiler and an improved electronic stability system, it quickly redeemed itself.

Aston Martin’s are probably best known as the car of choice for James Bond, but the automobile company has a phenomenal history that stretches far beyond the silver screen. The incredible DB5 that was first driven by James Bond in Goldfinger is not the only iconic car Aston Martin has managed to produce in the 105 yards of their existence.

The company is at a crossroad at the moment with game-changing cars like the first SUV from Aston, the Valkyrie supercar, and the brand-new Vantage on the horizon. However, instead of looking forward, let’s take a step back and revisit the greatest cars ever produced by Aston Martin.

Ulster

Although this wasn’t the first car produced by Aston Martin, the Ulster did manage to establish the company’s performance reputation. The Ulster was essentially a replica of the race car that went on to win the Ulster Tourist Trophy back in 1934. The four-cylinder, 1.5-litre engine produced 85 horsepower and managed to propel the Ulster to reach a top speed of around 100mph which was quite remarkable for its time.

DBR1

Apart from being one of the most beautiful cars ever produced by an automobile company, the DBR1 also gave Aston Martin its one and only win in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 1959, Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby drove the DBR1 during the famous French race and managed to win the tournament. Despite several attempts, Aston Martin hasn’t won it again since.

DB5

James Bond. There’s nothing more to say about this celebrity car. The DB5 will always be linked to 007. When the DB5 was driven by Sean Connery in the Goldfinger movie, he transformed the Aston Martin brand into a household name. The car itself was far more evolved than the DB4, but it’s the fame behind the DB5 that makes it one of the most iconic cars from Aston Martin to this day.

V8 Vantage

Don’t confuse this with the latest model from Aston Martin. The original Vantage V8 was the company’s attempt to produce a supercar from a tired model that was on sale for years. During 1977, the company decided to take the AM V8 and give it a significant boost where it eventually produced 375hp along with a top speed of around 170mph which was quite impressive for its time. The Vantage V8 also made it into a James Bond film, The Living Daylights.

DB7

This is undoubtedly the car that saved Aston Martin during the early 90’s. The car featured attractive styling which defined the company for 20 years. It came equipped with a V12 5.9-litre engine that was produced by Ford who owned both Jaguar and Aston at the time.

DB9

Aston Martin continued building the DB7 for more than 10 yards before they decided to replace it with the DB9. The DB9 was the car that defined the company during the early 2000’s and featured similar styling as the DB7 but with fewer connections to the Ford brand. The DB9 also created the basis for spinoff cars, such as the Virage and DBS.

There are some that are unaware that BMW initially manufactured aircraft engines back in 1913 before venturing into the automotive industry. It was only in 1929 when BMW first started developing cars. The team of engineers at BMW progressively developed their vehicles from Seven-based cars into luxury six-cylinder cars and by 1936 the company started producing the BMW 328 sports car. Automobiles, motorcycles, and aircraft engines were the primary products for BMW until WWII.

During the war, BMW concentrated heavily on aircraft production, while motorcycles were a second thought and the manufacturing of automobiles stopped altogether. By the end of 1930, BMW tried to introduce a brand-new front axle along with independent wheel suspension on both their models, including the BMW Wartburg DA3 and the BMW Dixi 3/15 DA4. However, accidents occurred on both models due to construction faults.

In 1931, BMW decided to hire Josef Ganz, a German engineer who was hired as a consultant to assist BMW is creating a brand-new model. Josef Ganz discussed the possibility of manufacturing a rear-engined prototype, but BMW wanted something more in the line of the previous Dixi model. It’s for this reason that Ganz started developing the BMW AM1 which was a small vehicle with rear-wheel drive and a front-mounted engine along with independent wheel suspension as well as swing-axles.

In motorsports, BMW has managed to complete and win several categories, including Touring car racing, Sportscar racing, Formula Two, and Formula One. The most popular racing lump is probably the BMW M10 engine block which started out as a 1,500cc with 4 cylinders at only 75hp during 1961.

    It managed to win touring car races as it later developed more than 300 hp during 1970 and was eventually upgraded to produce 1,400 hp in Formula Two during 1986. This engine is world-renowned as one of the most powerful engines in Formula One history as well. Other impressive engineering displays include the BMW S70/2 engine incorporated in the McLaren F1, setting the world record for the fastest production car back in 1998.

    “When I see an Alfa Romeo drive by, I raise my hat.” – Henry Ford

    The quote by Henry Ford summarizes the profound work and impact this Italian automaker has on the world. With over 100 years of creating history, Alfa Romeo started their incredible journey as a French company situated in Italy in 1910 and worked hard to establish their legacy by forming a strong racing heritage with countless wins which also led to the discovery of a young racer known as Enzo Ferrari.

    Alfa Romeo has achieved an arsenal of wins, including German Touring Car Championship, World Sportscar Championship. Several Grand Prix, Le Mans, the Mille Miglia during 1928, and the World’s Best Motor Race, just to mention a few. The quote by Henry Ford also demonstrates the craftmanship that went into every Alfa Romeo, creating pure works of art, such as the 1965 GTA, the 1962 original Guilia, and the 1924 P2.

    Being as flamboyant as an Italian can be, Alfa Romeo managed to pour their heart and soul into every single creation and placed focus on aesthetics and ensuring that their everyday models, including the Bretta, 156, and 155, were absolutely jaw-dropping. Alfa Romeos are also renowned for their questionable reliability and quirks, but we honestly don’t care. They’re elegant, graceful, and undeniably beautiful.

    The Legends

    What is an automotive icon? Can it be an aesthetically pleasing car that blows your mind? It is the performance which defines an era? How about a rich racing history? In the case of Alfa Romeo, they possess legendary cars from each group. The most iconic Alfa Romeo cars are essentially the ones that managed to change history for the better. In modern history, this includes cars like the C4, 8C, 156, Brera, GTA, and the Guilia. All of them commercial success that managed to grow the company even further. Going back several decades, cars like the Disco Volante, Duetto, 6C1750, Turbolare Zagato, Stradale, P3, 8C2900, and Alfetta all bring back phenomenal memories of this amazing Italian brand when it defined Italian style and sexy design.

    Race Cars

    Alfa Romeo has successfully competed in several different categories when it comes to motorsport, such as sportscar racing, rallies, touring car racing, Formula One, and Grand Prix motor racing. The company has competed both as an engine supplier and constructor. In 1913, Alfa Romeo made its first race car. Three years after the inception of A.L.F.A, the 6 litre straight 4 engine with 60 HP. The company established a good name in motorsport rather quickly, winning multiple championships across various categories. Some of the most iconic race cars included the 1936 Tipo C 8C-35, 1968 T33/2 ‘Le Mans’, 1970 GTAm, and the 1969 T33/2 Spyder.

    Concept Cars

    Alfa Romeo is certainly not afraid to let soul and aesthetics take over either. The company is truly passionate about creating a beautiful flow of body sheet to get your attention. Simply take a look at the range of prototypes produces over the last few years to get a real sense of the company. For instance, the 1969 Iguana Concept, the 2013 Disco Volante, or the 2006 Diva Concept.

    Acura is considered a luxury vehicle marque that derives from Honda, a world-class Japanese automaker. The car brand was initially launched in Canada and the United States in March 1986, marketing high-performance, performance, and luxury vehicles. In 1991, it was introduced to Hong Kong, in 2004 to Mexico, in 2006 to China, in 2014 to Russia, and in 2016 to Kuwait. The car brand also sold extremely well in Ukraine. In 2008, Honda wanted to introduce the Acura car brand to the Japanese domestic market, but it was unfortunately delayed due to several economic reasons which was later withheld after the financial crisis in 2008.

    Integra and Legend

    The Acura brand was developed around the same time as rivals Toyota and Nissan created their Lexus and Infiniti premium cars. In 1986, after a decade of extensive research, Honda decided to open 60 new dealerships across North America to support the automobile division of Acura. The brand initially released tow models, including the compact class Integra and the executive class Legend, available as a three-door and five-door hatchback.

    NSX

    In 1990, almost five years after the release of the Integra and Legend, Acura decided to introduce the NSX, a real-wheel-drive, midship V6 powered sportscar. It was considered the first Japanese car that could compete against Porsche and Ferrari. The NSX basically served as an image car for both Acura and Honda brands. The NSX was also the first all-aluminium car in the world and was considered an “Everyday Supercar” due to its reliability, quality, and ease of use.

    MDX, RSX, CL, TL

    At the start of 2000, Acura celebrated a rebirth by introducing several redesigned models. The 1999 Acura 3.2 TL was the first of these models which was essentially an upscale sedan. The MDX was another refreshed Acura that was launched in early 2000, an extremely popular SUV which was based on the Odyssey minivan from Honda. In 2001, Acura launched a new coupe which was branded the RSX. It was basically a replacement for the Integra. Unfortunately, the RSX was taken out of the line-up at Acura in 2006.

    ZDX, MDX, RDX, RLX, TLX, ILX

    In 2007, Acura managed to re-introduce the TL Type-S. In 2009, Acura launched the all-new TSX and TL models along with the mid-year model upgrade on the RL. All 3 of these vehicles made their introduction in 2008. In 2011, Acura planned to redesign the RL and also announced the introduction of the ZDX, a brand-new luxury model. The ZDX was the first car created in the Acura design studio situated in Southern California.

    In 2012, Acura created the new ILX model which is heavily based on the Honda Civic. The car manufacturer also reinvented another model in the same year, known as the RDX concept. In 2013, Acura presented a 2014 MDX concept which was released shortly thereafter. Acura basically keeps all their car names the same and simply reinvents the models with better designs and features.
