WHEN MONEY IS NO OB­JECT

South Burnett Times - - MOTORING -

The new year will be a bumper one for su­per­cars. There’s the new Porsche 911 start­ing from $265,000 for a 331kW Car­rera S, a facelifted Audi R8 re­tain­ing its stonking V10 en­gine and hope­fully a V8 Lexus LC F coupe. Highrid­ing su­per­cars are cov­ered by Lam­borgh­ini’s $390,000 Urus SUV, good for 100km/h in 3.6 sec­onds thanks to its 478kW bi-turbo V8. Tra­di­tion­al­ists will pre­fer Fer­rari’s track-fo­cused 533kW V8 488 Pista for $645,000. Not enough? Lean to­wards the MercedesAMG One — an F1 car for the road with more than 740kW from its elec­tri­cally-en­hanced 1.6-litre turbo V6. Eight ver­sions are con­firmed for Aus­tralia and New Zealand, each about $4 mil­lion. The same money buys an As­ton Martin Valkyrie, with 746kW/740Nm and 11,100rpm red­line from its nat­u­rallyaspi­rated 6.5-litre V12, or save mil­lions and set­tle for a 597kW twin-turbo V8 McLaren Senna.
