2017 AD Tramontana – Engine Bay – Vilner – EuroDrift

The 2017 AD Tramontana sports a Mercedes-Benz 5.5-liter twin-turbo mid-engine V12. As a result,  this motor produces a whopping 888 horsepower and 678 lb.-ft. of torque. Consequently, to handle this power, the Tramontana has a seven-speed sequential gearbox. In addition, the Tramontana only weights 2,795 pounds. With that power and weight combination, this car should be a scary, thrilling joyrider.

Statement by the Founder of Vilner Studio

“You are nobody in the automotive custom scene if you’re not as SEMA,” stated Ayana’s Vilner, the Vilner studio’s founder. “We were there as an exclusive partner to the Spanish Super Car brand AD Tramontana.” SEMA is known for its custom, flashy vehicles that are on display each year. With that in mind, this is the place to be to showcase a truly custom supercar. The 2017 AD Tramontana fits the bill perfectly.

Race Car Style Interior with Alcantara, Black, & Gold

On the interior, there are two seats that are in a row, one behind the other. The driver takes the first seat while a passenger can fit behind them. It doesn’t seem there is much legroom or room for obesity in this vehicle. Imagine the tiny size of the Alfa Romeo 4C and think “even smaller”.

Each interior is individually crafted by Atelier. The combination of black alcantara, black leather, and lizard-texture goldfish leather combine to create a cozy, sporty feeling. The horn buttons are hidden underneath the leather, not surprisingly. At the top of the wheel, there is a gold central marker that keeps the car pointed in the correct direction.

“That engine can generate a genuine sense of superiority for the driver,” Vilner stated. “And that kind of self-esteem should be defined by the design inside as well.” The 5.5-liter Mercedes V12 definitely doesn’t disappoint. With placement in such as light vehicle, this car will be roaring down the track. Or, maybe roaring up the driveway to one of Las Vegas’ finest casinos.

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione: An Aerodynamic Engineering Masterpiece

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione: An Aerodynamic Engineering Masterpiece

Introduction of the Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Rear - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Rear – Ferrari – EuroDrift

Recently, in October 2017, Ferrari introduced the FXX-K Evoluzione to the world. The Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione is an enhanced version of the FXX-K, which both stem from the LaFerrari. Many people believe this is Ferrari’s answer to the Mercedes-AMG Project One. Although the total number of production models is unknown, this car is going to cost a few million. It may be expensive, more so than the FXX-K, but it will be well worth the price increase. Ferrari intends to race the FXX-K Evo in the 2018-2019 racing season which includes 9 track events starting in March 2018.

Electric Motor & V12 Produce 1036 Horsepower

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Side - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Side – Ferrari – EuroDrift

The Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione sports a V12 engine as well as an electric motor. The V12 produces 850 base horsepower and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. The electric motor produces around 186 base horsepower and 111 lb.-ft. of torque. These engines combine for a total power of 1036 horsepower and 664 lb.-ft. of torque. This power level combines with high-level F1 dual-clutch gearbox to make a mean racing machine.

75% Downforce Improvement Over LaFerrari

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Front - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Front – Ferrari – EuroDrift

Downforce plays an important role in the Ferrari FXX-K Evo. The FXX-K Evo has 23% more downforce than the FXX-K and 75% more than the LaFerrari. This is mostly due to an aerodynamic fixed rear wing. This increase in aerodynamics combined with a weight drop create an engineering marvel. Negative lift is around 1410 lbs at 125 mph and exceeds 1830 lbs near top speed.

Downforce Levels Similiar to GT3 and GTE Championships

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Front - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Front – Ferrari – EuroDrift

The Ferrari FXX-K Evo had 12.5k miles of development and reliability runs prior to its announcement. A lot of testing was done via CFD simulation and in a wind tunnel for aerodynamics. This led to the great numbers mentioned above of a large amount of downforce and negative lift. Ferrari claims that the FXX-K Evo downforce levels are “very close to those of the cars competing in the GT3 and GTE championships.” This statement is clearly true with the numbers that the car is displaying in testing. Track tests with the FXX-K Evo at the Fiorano test track led to impressive results of 1 minute 14 seconds, 5 seconds faster than the LaFerrari.

Ferrari FXX Program

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Rear - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Rear – Ferrari – EuroDrift

In 2005, the XX Program was started by Ferrari. These cars are for sale to loyal customers who are willing to spend millions for special track versions of cars. These cars are built with the track in mind at a competitive level. Ferrari XX vehicles are usually built in low quantities leading to higher collectibility. Luckily, for those select few, they are collecting pieces of modern artwork.

Carbon Fiber Construction & Twin-Profile Fixed Rear Wing

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Side - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Side – Ferrari – EuroDrift

The Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione has a carbon fiber construction with a twin-profile fixed rear wing. The fixed rear wing works with an active rear spoiler to optimize downforce. The active spoiler adjusts itself accordingly while in motion. There are 2 side fins as well as a central fin to help with aerodynamics as well. The FXX-K Evo also has redesigned front and rear bumpers. The front has widened front brake air intakes. The rear has enlarged bypass vents on the wheel arches for better flow to the rear diffuser.

Central & Side Fins Boost Stability

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Roof - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Roof – Ferrari – EuroDrift

The side fins and central fin support the rear wing. The central fin plays an important role on this vehicle. “Firstly it acts as a vertical fin, boosting stability at low yaw angles, and secondly, it supports the action of the three delta (triangular) vortex generators.” Basically, it boosts stability at low yaw angles as well as supports three delta vortex generators. The vortex generators “clean the follow field striking the wing of the effects of the wake of the hot air flow from the radiators which vents onto the bonnet, while also creating a down wash component in the flow which boosts the twin-profile’s downforce capacity.”

Front & Rear Bumper Alterations

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione - Driver's Side Rear Corner - Ferrari - EuroDrift

Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione – Driver’s Side Rear Corner – Ferrari – EuroDrift

As mentioned above, the front bumper is slightly different on this vehicle. “The geometry of the sides of the front bumper was altered by hollowing out the surfaces beneath the headlights. This made space for a couple of flicks divided by vertical turning vane and an additional intake ahead of the front wheels. This system makes good use of know-how acquired in the GT programs in which rules introduced in 2016 permitted extensive study of the interaction between horizontal (flicks) and vertical (dive plane) flow management systems, optimizing their efficiency.” By hollowing out beneath the headlights, Ferrari was able to make space for other important items including additional intake space. All of the changes to the exterior led to the enormous 73% downforce gain over the LaFerrari.

Interior Technology Overhaul

On the inside, there is a “conceptually-different steering wheel”. This wheel includes a KERS Manettino and a 6.5” rear camera screen. The LCD displays telemetry, KERS status, and lap times via the click of a button. All of this combines to enhance the interior layout for additional improvements. This car is beautiful inside and out.

Masterpiece of Modern Automotive Art


Overall, the Ferrari FXX-K Evoluzione is another masterpiece of modern art. From it’s exterior updates to its enormous power capabilities, it is a true beast. The number of vehicles should be very low at a steep price if it follows the usual pattern. We can all look forward to the upcoming racing season to see the potential of this car. In conclusion, will it be a true racing competitor for the Mercedes-AMG Project One?

Reasoning for TB12 Designation

The reasoning for the number 12 is due to Tom Brady’s New England Patriots jersey number. With 5 Super Bowl rings, Aston Martin felt the collaboration would bring attention to their brand. It is expected that all 12 vehicles will be sold quickly and most probably to Aston’s top customers. Tom Brady helped Aston decide the color scheme for the car. The hint of blue may be a connection to the New England Patriots’ jersey color scheme.

Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition: The End of the Gelandewagen Era

Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition: The End of the Gelandewagen Era

Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has been an extravagant, iconic SUV since its debut in 1979. Initially starting with I4, I5, and I6 motors, the car has grown to become a rare spectacle. Currently, the G65 AMG sports a V12 motor that turns this SUV into a true beast. Unfortunately, Daimler AG, the owner of Mercedes-Benz, has decided it is time to let go of the prized V12 option. So, unfortunately, Daimler is releasing a final version called the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition.

MSRP of $252,690 with 65 Limited Editions Worldwide

While the non-AMG G-Class starts at a MSRP of $122,400, the Final Edition is expected to cost around $252,690. Yes, 2 times as much as the base model. This price is not 100% official in the United States yet, but sources state the value was obtained from Mercedes-Benz. Limited to only 65 worldwide, the G65 AMG will have 30 for sale within the U.S. very soon. Obtaining one of these limited SUVs will be difficult and may be reserved for Mercedes top customers.

Symbolic Matte Bronze Trim

The Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition’s attractiveness begins with a matte bronze trim on the exterior. The matte bronze trim can be seen on the front bumper, mirrors, and wheels. On the inside, black Nappa leather is accented by carbon fiber with interwoven bronze accents. Even the passenger handle has a specialty badge for those “oh shit” moments. At least, your passenger can hold on for dear life in style when you accelerate this beastly SUV.

6.0-Liter Twin-Turbo V12 with 630 HP and 730 Lb.-Ft. of Torque

In the engine bay, a twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 boasts an obnoxious 630 horsepower and 738 lb.-ft. of torque. This allows the SUV to hit 60 mph in only 5.3 seconds. Mercedes-AMG limits the SUV to a top governed speed of 143 mph, faster than anyone needs to go in a SUV. Considering the G65 has the same engine as a S65, the true top speed can be expected to be around 170-180 mph. Now it only makes sense that they limited it… going that fast in a SUV would probably prove deadly, very fast.

The End of the Gelandewagen Era

Overall, the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition is a farewell to the G-Class and it’s V12 engine. Mercedes plan is to replace the G-Class with an all-new, similar vehicle with smaller engine options. Don’t worry, smaller engines don’t signal the loss of enormous power as many manufacturers have proven in the last few years. Regardless, the G65 Final Edition is a mean machine that can go through 2 feet of standing water and climb 27 degree slopes. On top of that, the G65 can tilt 20 degrees sideways before it may tilt over. In the end, the G-Class was an iconic symbol of wealth through the years and it’s lifetime has come to a demise.

Ferrari F50: A Formula 1 Sports Car

The Legendary Ferrari F50

The Ferrari F50 is an equivalent of a F-1 engined road car. From its unique styling to its racing design, the F50 is a collector’s dream. The F50 was produced from 1995 to 1997 by Ferrari with only 349 models built total. As expected, the designer is Pininfarina and it was assembled in Maranello, Italy. To no surprise, the F50 is loaded with Ferrari goodies.

4.7-Liter DOHC V12 (513 Horsepower)

The Ferrari F50 sports a 4.7-liter DOHC V12 producing 513 horsepower and 347 lb.-ft. of torque. The F50 V12 has no trouble redlining at 8,500 rpm with a fuel cut-off at 8,640 rpm. This car also features a Bosch Motronic 2.7 ECU system. The ECU controls fuel feed, ignition timing, and variable length intake and exhaust systems. By variable exhaust and intake, Ferrari means a butterfly valve that is closed at low rpm and open at high rpm.

Although the F50 is a beautiful implementation of engineering, the mileage is lacking, as expected. The F50 gets only 7 mpg in the city and 10 mpg on the highway, defining a true gas guzzler. Usually, these cars don’t rack up miles, so this usually isn’t a concern. As a collector’s car, the F50 is usually displayed in a showroom of sports cars in a private collection. The truth is, how could you possibly not drive this beautiful car?

A True F-1 Sports Car

Overall, the Ferrari F50 defines a F-1 road car. The F50 is able to hit 60 mph in only 3.7 seconds and complete a quarter mile in 10.7 seconds at 125 mph. Top speed of this beauty is 202 mph. The initial MSRP of the F50 was $417,000. Now, the F50 sells for between $2 and $3 million USD. If you were fortunate enough to obtain this car from Ferrari on release, you purchased a true treasure… and also made a small fortune.
