Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 – Front – Manufacturer Picture – EuroDrift

On September 3, 2019, Lamborghini unveiled their newest model, the Sián, at the Frankfurt Auto Show! The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is a mid-engine hybrid sports car, a 1st for the manufacturer. But, it’s definitely not the first for their parent company, Volkswagen. Either way, this is a big step towards the upcoming EV future for the company. And, even though it’s a hybrid, it’s as close to a traditional Lambo as it could be. Why? That’s because this car boasts a V12 engine… so yea… it’s definitely still a Lamborghini at heart. Next, let’s take a dive into this stunning automobile as it is truly an Italian powerhouse.

6.5-Liter V12 + 48-Volt Electric Motor System

Diving a bit more specifically, let’s take a look at the battery and performance numbers. The low voltage 48-V system includes a lithium-ion supercapacitor. This inclusion is 3x more powerful than a battery with the same weight. Being a low voltage setup, this allows current to reach up to 600 A. This power goes directly to the rear wheels, and braking inertia is used to recharge the capacitor. As per performance numbers, the Sián should be able to reach 60 mph in less than 2.8 seconds. Furthermore, it should reach a top speed of over 217 mph. That’s awesome!

A Deeper Discussion of Specifications

Overall, the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is another engineering feat by the manufacturer. With all of this power and high-quality race-based engineering, this car will be a beast on the track. But, how much will it cost? How many will Lambo produce? Well, this car will reach a price of around $3.6 million USD. Time to start saving now! Secondly, Lamborghini aims to produce only 63 units of this car, so it is quite limited! So, even with the funds in hand, it will be difficult to order one of these cars. Regardless, Lambo does offer more reasonable options other such as the Aventador. In conclusion, Congrats to Lamborghini on their first hybrid – everyone will be waiting to see what’s next!

Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition: Farewell to S-Class V12

Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition: Farewell to S-Class V12

An Official Goodbye to the S-Class V12

After many, many years of the S-Class sporting a V12 option, it is time to say farewell. To close out the S-Class V12 era, Daimler is introducing the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition. This vehicle has a limit of 130 units that include a number badge. Furthermore, the car arrives with a styling Obsidian Black Metallic paintjob and a mix of carbon fiber and copper accents. The Final Edition made its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in 2019. Although this car is a tribute to the era of V12 S-Class vehicles, it signals the next design that is coming soon. The next-gen S-Class will probably boast similar power with a smaller, more efficient engine. Honestly, don’t be surprised to see a fully electric or hybrid version… but who knows?

6.5-Liter Twin-Turbo V12 with 621 Horsepower

Koenigsegg Crash Tests Sound Quite Expensive, But Necessary!

Koenigsegg Crash Tests Sound Quite Expensive, But Necessary!

Every Legal Street Car Must Pass Crash Test Analysis

In recent news, Koenigsegg crash tests are in the spotlight. Why? Because Koenigsegg, a hypercar manufacturer, builds a limited number of exclusive models at extremely steep prices. Hence, a crash test in itself can be a multi-million-dollar ordeal. So, how does a small manufacturer handle these extensive costs? Well, by using a one frame method for testing rather than building multiple fully functional vehicles. This will be the topic in the next section of the article.

About one week ago, the APEX ONE YouTube channel put up the video seen below discussing this exact issue. In the video, employees and even Christian von Koenigsegg himself speaks of the testing experience. Check it out below!

One Carbon Fiber Monocoque Frame for Testing Purposes

For testing purposes, Koenigsegg builds one carbon fiber monocoque frame. Then, the manufacturer adds on body panels, crumple zones, and subframes. These three components can be easily replaced, while the main frame would require a lot more funding and work. So, the goal for the company is to build a vehicle to withstand multiple Koenigsegg crash tests. Starting with drop-offs, head-on collisions into tires, and massive speed bumps, the car is pushed to its limit.

Just thinking about these tests can cause distress in any auto fan, especially for lowered vehicle drivers. And, furthermore, it’s difficult to imagine an Agera RS taking such a beating. Finally, the car undergoes more testing such as hammering, slamming, and even an airbag dummy test. Phew! Why must this beautiful car suffer!? For safety! That’s why!

Koenigsegg Hypercars are Legendary Automobiles

How To Crash A $2 Million Koenigsegg Hypercar – www.APEX.one – APEX ONE -YouTube

Overall, the Koenigsegg manufacturer builds legendary automobiles. Every single model is unique, limited, and worth a fortune. Owning a Koenigsegg is a car collector’s dream. And, knowing Koenigsegg crash tests ensure the car’s safety, it can be driven once a year for that weekend get together. As most people suspect, driving a multi-million-dollar car carries quite a steep insurance payment. Recently, Auto Insurance Center stated a Bugatti Veyron can run $50,000 a year for insurance. So, this car isn’t probably far off. Hence, most people probably don’t daily drive these cars. A fender bender could cost 6-digits, especially if the damage is extensive. Hands down, these cars are build for the track and tested to handle those conditions.

Warning: Watch the video below at your own discretion. The destruction of such a vehicle may cause nightmares.
