What's in our Car Town garage today? (March 18, 2014)

What's in our Car Town garage today?

1996 McLaren F1

In the 1990's, this British-engineered hypercar is the speed king at this decade. The McLaren F1 set the benchmark as one of the fastest production supercars ever made. Penned by Gordon Murray, the F1 features some of the unique stuff that no other modern supercars had such as the golden engine bay which makes it the best for heat insulation and a middle-positioned driver's seat to give the owner some racecar-like feeling while driving on the road. Powered by BMW's 6.1L V12 engine, the top speed of the F1 is 240mph.

2003 Mitsubishi Brian's Evolution VII

This modified Lancer Evolution VII is Brian O'Connor's ride of choice on a mission to Miami in 2 Fast 2 Furious, the sequel to the hit street-racing movie, The Fast and The Furious.

2012 Pagani Huayra

Premiered at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the Huayra is the successor to the decade-long Pagani Zonda, the maiden hypercar of the Modena-based manufacturer.  The name Huayra comes from a South American God of the wind and as the name implies, it promises to blow away the competition thanks to its Mercedes-AMG M158 V12 twin-turbo engine that propels this hypercar from a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of over 227mph.

2008 Pagani Zonda Cinque

Although it may not be classified as the "final edition" of the Zonda, the Cinque is a very special Zonda catered for the elite few because only five of these models are made and sold out. Although it is essentially a softened road-legal version of the record-breaking Zonda R track car, the Cinque is the first to introduce a new composite made out of carbon fiber and titanium called Carbotanium.
