Difficult for non-French speakers to say, La Voiture Noire is Bugatti's latest one-off hyper sports car. The name, which simply means 'The Black Car' is a $19 million proposition, which has already been sold out. It’s meant to be a modern take on the Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic from the mid 1930s. (NYT)

Based on the 1938 Hispano-Suiza H6C Dubonnet Xenia, the Carmen is an all-electric car that has more than 1,000 horsepower and a $1.7 million price tag. While its numbers aren’t stellar compared to the super-electric car debuted by Pininfarina, it will still do 0-to-60mph in just under three seconds, with a top speed of 155mph. With 503bhp and a range of roughly 250 miles on one charge, it still promises top-end performance, reliable electric power, and an unconventional design—all built in Barcelona, Spain. Nineteen of these will be made. (Bloomberg)

The 630-horsepower Huracan Evo Spyder continues the excellent Huracan line with a 631bhp 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine and a 0-62mph time in 3.1 seconds. With myriad traction and stability controls including a rear-wheel steering, all-wheel-drive system and adaptive dampers, plus multiple drive modes for street, sport or track, the new drop-top Lambo promises the kind of extreme driving thrill that only an old Italian exotic brand can give.

Priced at $532,000, the Ginetta Akula screams for attention at any angle. The 61-year-old British carmaker based out of Leeds has mounted a V8 engine in the middle of the car and paired it with a six-speed transmission with rear-wheel drive. The Akula boasts 600 horsepower and a 200mph top speed. It’s all very extreme—legal to drive on the street but made for the track. Ginetta says it will build 20 of them in 2020. (Bloomberg)

The Ferrari F8 Tributo is a mid-engine V8 car from Ferrari, replacing the 488 GTB and 458 Italia models. Among its subtle new styling cues are fresh headlights, big round tail lights, and updated aerodynamics. Better yet, it has an exciting clear engine cover on that mid-mounted engine. Performance numbers are roughly the same as before, with 720 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque that get it to 60mph in 2.9 seconds. Top speed is expected to be well over 200mph. Pricing has yet to be announced, but deliveries begin early next year. (Bloomberg)
