  • 2024 355 by Evoluto

    The 2024 355 by Evoluto is a reimagined version of the iconic 1990s Ferrari F355, brought to life by Evoluto Automobili. This restomod, or as Evoluto prefers to call it, "remastered" car, aims to blend the best of classic analog driving experiences with modern engineering. Here’s what makes it stand out: Key Features: Engine and Performance:  The original 3.5-liter V8 engine has been upgraded with new engine management, producing 420 horsepower, with an optional upgrade to 500 horsepower. The engine can rev up to 8,500 rpm, promising a thrilling driving experience. Design:  Renowned designer Ian Callum has crafted a new carbon-fiber body for the 355 by Evoluto. The car retains the F355’s timeless beauty but adds a more aggressive and modern edge. Interior:  The interior is entirely new, combining luxury and functionality with a nod to the original design. Production:  Limited to just 55 units, with half already spoken for, each car undergoes about 4,000 hours of meticulous build time. Technical Enhancements: Chassis and Body:  Each car’s chassis is stripped and reinforced with carbon, making it 23% stiffer than the original. This increased rigidity allows for the enhanced power output. Engineering:  The team used advanced techniques like CFD testing and CNC machining to optimize the engine, enhancing airflow and performance with precision. Suspension:  Still under development, the suspension will be tailored for real-world driving, with a focus on UK roads, known for their challenging conditions. Philosophy and Appeal: Evoluto’s technical boss, Amjad Ali, emphasizes the importance of enjoying the car without needing a racetrack. The goal is to bring back the fun of driving at any speed, something modern supercars often miss. This “remastered” F355 combines the quirks and charm of the original with cutting-edge technology and engineering. Priced from £690,000, the 355 by Evoluto offers more than just a nostalgic ride; it’s a carefully crafted piece of automotive art designed for true enthusiasts.

  • 2024 MG Cyber GTS Concept

    MG has introduced the Cyber GTS concept, a hardtop version of its stunning Cyberster electric roadster, at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed. This new concept aims to gauge interest for a potential production model in Europe. Key Features: Design:  The Cyber GTS features a 2+2 layout and a fastback design with a sleek roofline that stretches into the rear decklid, ending in a duckbill spoiler. The front end retains the Cyberster's distinctive look, while the rear includes an aggressive diffuser and prominent winglets. Inspiration:  The GTS concept pays homage to the MGC GTS Sebring race car from the late '60s and celebrates MG's 100th anniversary. Interior:  Although the interior isn't finalized, it offers a 2+2 seating arrangement, adding practicality to its sporty design. Powertrain:  While specific details are not disclosed, it's expected to mirror the Cyberster's electric setup. The roadster features a rear-wheel-drive electric motor producing 335 horsepower. Production Prospects: Currently, the Cyber GTS is a concept, but MG is using the Goodwood Festival to gauge fan interest. If there's enough enthusiasm, this hardtop electric coupe could see production in the near future. However, like the Cyberster, the GTS won't be available in the U.S. The MG Cyber GTS concept showcases the brand's commitment to blending heritage with modern electric performance, making it a potential hit in the European market.

  • 2024 Polestar 6 BST Concept

    Polestar, Geely’s all-electric subsidiary, has made a significant impact at the Goodwood Festival of Speed with the global debut of the Polestar 6 BST Concept, a racing iteration of the Polestar 6 electric sports car. A Stunning New Arrival: The Polestar 6 BST Concept, introduced in Gothenburg, Sweden on July 11, 2024, is the centerpiece of Polestar's expanded lineup at the festival. This concept car features bespoke bodywork with flared arches, an extra-wide track, and 22-inch forged alloy wheels, emphasizing its racing pedigree. The aerodynamically optimized vented bonnet, framed by an aggressive front splitter, and a motorsport-inspired rear wing complete its striking appearance. Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar, highlighted the significance of the debut, stating, “Now we are a brand with three models in production, it’s great to see them here together for the first time at a global event. Goodwood Festival of Speed is full of the most exciting cars and the most enthusiastic crowds, so it’s the perfect place for us to tease our Polestar Concept BST. This car is a demonstration of how far we can push our performance brand—Polestar turned up to 11, if you will—and a demonstration of how we could apply the BST formula to our line-up in the future.” Design and Performance: The Polestar 6 BST Concept is a true marvel of engineering and design. Finished in classic motorsport silver, it boasts muscular flared arches and an extra-wide track that enhance its aggressive stance. The 22-inch forged alloy wheels and bespoke racing-livery-inspired graphics add to its visual appeal. The aerodynamically optimized bonnet, with its unique vented design, ensures optimal airflow and cooling, while the aggressive front splitter and extreme rear wing contribute to its high-speed stability. Engineered alongside the Polestar 5, the Polestar 6 Concept uses the bespoke bonded aluminum Polestar Performance Architecture (PPA) platform. This advanced platform ensures the car's lightweight construction, enhancing its agility and performance. The Polestar 6 represents the pinnacle of Polestar's current lineup, embodying the brand's commitment to innovative design and cutting-edge technology. Dynamic Debut: The Polestar 6 Concept will make its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, demonstrating its capabilities on the festival’s iconic 1.2-mile hill climb. This marks a significant milestone for Polestar as it showcases its performance credentials to an enthusiastic audience. Joining the Polestar 6 in the first glance paddock are the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4, two new electric SUVs that exemplify the brand's commitment to sustainable mobility. The Polestar 3, an electric performance SUV launched in late 2022, and the Polestar 4, an SUV coupé introduced in 2023, both highlight Polestar's focus on design and technology. Polestar at Goodwood: The main Polestar stand at Goodwood features the Polestar Concept BST, the Polestar 2, and the two new luxury electric performance SUVs. Electric Avenue hosts the Polestar 4, offering consumers the opportunity to experience Polestar models firsthand with test drives along Molecomb drive within the Goodwood estate. Polestar's presence at Goodwood underscores its commitment to performance and innovation. The Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 are available to order, with test drives of the Polestar 3 underway and Polestar 4 slots starting shortly. More information about test drives can be found at Polestar Test Drive Booking .
