‘Gimme the full twelve!’

Pa­gani Huayra

› Pa­gani do not build the en­gine ― they’re not stupid ― and if you’re go­ing to buy one in, who bet­ter to com­mis­sion it from than To­bias Mo­ers’ merry band, AMG? Their V8s are to die for, so you can for­give any­one who drives the Huayra for go­ing gooey over the car’s 6.0-litre twin­turbo V12, de­vel­oped by AMG to Ho­ra­cio Pa­gani’s ex­act­ing brief. 730 PS and sold out.

As­ton DBS Su­per­leg­gera

› The Van­quish S is dead. As­ton’s new flag­ship is the front-en­gined Bri­tish GT sent su­per­nova by a 725-PS ver­sion of As­ton’s twin-turbo V12. The en­gine pairs that head­line power fig­ure with 900 Nm at 1,800 rpm for 0-100 km/h in 3.4 sec­onds and 0-160 km/h in 6.4 sec­onds. Yours from £225k (Rs 2 crore), but As­ton will surely sack any dealer who doesn’t add at least £50k (Rs 45 lakh) in op­tions.

Lam­borgh­ini Aven­ta­dor S

› Wide, intimidating, colos­sally quick but about as wieldy as a 747, the Aven­ta­dor started to get its act to­gether with the SV. 2017’s Aven­ta­dor S, with 812 Su­per­fast-es­que four-wheel steer­ing, was a huge step for­ward, bring­ing real tac­til­ity and agility to the Aven­ta­dor’s game. And sad­dled though it is by an old-school trans­mis­sion, the V12 re­mains mes­meric.
