Bugatti’s one-off Chiron Profilée went under the hammer at an auction in Paris this week and ended up selling for double its pre-auction estimate. The final price paid, including the buyer’s premium, was over $10 million, making it the most expensive new car ever to be sold at auction.
McLaren’s successor to the 720S is set for a reveal later this year and word on the street is that it will be called a 750S. In keeping with McLaren’s alphanumeric naming strategy, the 750S name implies the car will pack 750 metric horsepower, or about 740 hp.
Porsche is working on a mid-cycle update for its Taycan electric sedan and wagon, and a prototype for the former has been spotted. There will be new technology in the headlights, and rumors point to the availability of a new performance flagship as well.
