Bewada has compiled the best upcoming power cars of 2018 and beyond. Some of which featured at the prestigious Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 in Germany.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
One of the most highly anticipated power cars of the year, Aston Martin has finally released a closer look. A joint collaboration with F1 Team Red Bull’s Adrian Newey, things couldn’t get any more F1 with Aston Martin Valkyrie.
The 6.5 litre Cosworth V12 engine goes from 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds; a highly attractive feature of this luxury vehicle.
Aston Martin Valkyrie is expected to arrive in early 2019, estimated to have a price tag of $3.2 million (approx. £2.4 million).
It may seem smaller than the Q7, with two rows instead of three. But seating for five people is expected to go into production. This elegant hybrid features touch screens inside, bringing technology to a whole new level in the Audi series.
The Audi Q8 also hosts an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and on electric can run up to 37 miles. Although, the lithium battery will need two hours to fully recharge.
Ivkiran Kaur, 20, from Slough, however, was not impressed with the overall concept. She said: “It does not look elegant at all, I think the grill is too big, and it looks too bulky to be elegant.”
Porsche Mission E
This electric-powered car took inspiration from the winning Le Mans 24 hours Porsche 919 Hybrid racer. From 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds with over 600hp, this is the start of Porsche’s electric years with their power cars.
It boasts an 80% battery charge in just 15 minutes and will update via Wi-Fi and over-the-air options. The Porsche Mission E will also include 3D digital displays on the dash, and the wheels automatically gain power individually to maintain high grip.
The Porsche Mission E will be available by the end of 2019, with a price range starting from $85,000 (approx. £62,200).
Mercedes – AMG Project One
The car has four electric motors, with the front motors solely controlling the electric force. With a speed of over 200mph, and a mind-blowing 11,000 rpm redline, Project One is in deadly demand.
Similar to the Valkyrie, it has a shape that is dedicated to downforce gains; concentrating on F1 aerodynamics to make it faster. Expected to arrive in 2019, its estimated price range will start at a staggering £2.45 million. Unfortunately, 275 of the cars have already been ordered.
Not to confuse with the I-Pace, the Jaguar E-Pace boasts of 246hp with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. This power car is a 5 passenger vehicle, taking on a sporty design similar to the F-Pace.
Going from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds and with a top speed of 151mph, one can easily compare it to the F-Pace. But the E-Pace is more concentrated on the sporty aspect. It’s heavy, at 1700kg, but Jaguar claims this makes the car sturdier and realistic.
The Jaguar E-Pace will be on sale by the end of 2017, meaning you will see it on the roads in 2018.
Tesla Model 3
The autonomous Tesla Model 3 can actually go up to unbelievable speeds in later models, going from 0-60mph in just between 2-4.5 seconds. But the original will go from 0-60mph between 5.1-5.6 seconds.
Tesla Model 3 may not hit the UK till 2019. But everywhere else in the world will be able to order one for 2018 at $35,000 (approx. £25,700).
The new and upcoming Toyota Supra, scheduled for possibly late 2018, is a major comeback for the Japanese brand. The last production of a Toyota supercar was back in 2002!
The car will share the same engine to BMW’s Z4, though, and will be part-hybrid. While we can expect a petrol engine, many hope that a full electronic version will be in production soon. Spotted recently at the Nurburgring race track in Germany, the new Supra is shrouded in secrecy. But car fanatics may find out more details in the future.
Bentley Continental GT
The Bentley Continental GT debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show and captured sights with its sleek look. With 626bhp, the GT can go from 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 207mph. The car gets the W12 flagship engine and a 900Nm of torque.
