Hamann Liberates The Jaguar F-Pace With 410 HP And Sharp New Bodykit
Posted on March 20, 2017
Something to consider while waiting for the F-Pace SVR, perhaps?
Super SUVs are all the rage right now and by the end of the year we should have, among others, the Lamborghini Urus, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, and the Jaguar F-Pace SVR – all featuring powerplants capable of well over 500 horsepower. While we await the latter of these, German tuner Hamann has developed an upgrade package for the British crossover, which currently comes with 380 hp in its most potent form, the supercharged F-Pace S.
Utilizing the same V6 that’s found under the hood of the S, Hamann has managed to squeeze an extra 30 horses, resulting in an output of 410 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. The diesel variant also gets the Hamann treatment thanks to a remapped ECU and multi-flow exhaust, with output increased from 300 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque to 340 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque. Married to the performance upgrades is a slick new aerodynamic body kit that Hamann described as “unmistakable.” Featuring a menacing front end with front fender extensions and redesigned rear diffuser, the new body parts are complemented by a set of bespoke 23-inch “Anniversary Evo II” lightweight alloys that come in Hyper Silver, Black or Graphite Gray.
A smattering of custom interior parts, including motorized aluminum footrests, rounds off the upgrade package for the Jaguar F-Pace. Interested parties will have to contact Hamann directly or get in touch with one of its dealers to find out the price of the upgrades. Here's a look at a regular F-Pace while you make up your mind.

When a $50 million Ferrari collection isnt enough for Ferrari..
Posted on June 19, 2017
When the uber rich get denied. Only 200 examples of the LaFerrari Aperta are being built, and despite the $2.2 million price tag, Ferrari is having absolutely no problem selling all of them. As is common with Ferrari, there’s far greater demand than supply, but what’s needed to get on that exclusive 200-person list? The Los Angeles Times has done a great write up about watch and jewelry entrepreneur David Lee, who’s also a serial Ferrari collector (and Pagani Huayra owner). Over the year’s he’s amassed a Ferrari collection now worth $50 million. [...more]

Can last generation race car tech and driver skill beat the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and McLaren P1 GTR?
