2020 Montes Amagosta
On the last Geneva Auto Show we presented the Amagosta Concept, and here, a few months later, we have the production version.
Because the old design it was well received, instead change the whole design concept, we decided to improve it. So, at the front, the diamond-shaped grille and the stilized headlights and taillights are preserved, but featuring a new fresh design.
On the rear, we preserved the famous “expensive Italian coffee machine” rear end, consisting on two thin and horizontal taillights, and a raised tailgate.
On the technical side, we used a glue-bonded aluminium frame, with carbon fibre reinforcement, the same used on the previous version, but improved (and also used on the Excelsior). The torsional stiffness is increased by a 30%, while the weight remains the same.
The engine is the same 5.8L twin turbo WX58 block used on the previous-gen Amagosta, but with the new Montes SCHI system (used on the Excelsior), that improves the fuel economy and emissions about a 25%, but archieving 601 hp at 7200 RPM and 704 Nm at 4600 RPM (the 85% of torque is available from 1700 RPM), and that means that the car can reach 340km/h of top speed, and do the 0-100km/h on 4.5s. And all of this, only requiring 7L/100km of fuel (WTLP cycle).
If you prefer a V8, of course, you can choose the Amagosta with that engine, the PO50 5.1L twin turbo V8, with 500hp and 550Nm. The 0-100 is the same, 4.5s, and the top speed is 320km/h, while the fuel consumption is 6.3L/100km.
The Amagosta is available with two transmissions: a torque converter box with 9 gears, or a manual gearbox with 7 gears.
The prices starts from $104.000 for the V8 (auto gearbox), and $118.000 for the V12 (auto gearbox).
(sorry to post two weeks before, but I will be out tomorrow up to September)
If it looks like a supercar, feels like a supercar, sounds like a supercar and drives like a supercar, then it is definitely a supercar - and that is definitely true of the Amagosta, regardless of what engine or gearbox you choose.
Quick warning update that the Concours will be running this Sunday, on the 18th - no posts may be made after this date!

ClassicWorks @ Pebble Beach 2019
The all-new ClassicWorks Sprinter GT roadster is now showing on this year’s Concours d’Elegance. With a classic Italian-inspired design, combined with the latest technology available, the Sprinter GT is more than what it is.
Only 10 vehicles are planned for production. The first unit of the 10, shown in the pictures, is only available with Vivid Yellow, an exclusive colour for the Sprinter GT itself. The vehicle will be sold on auction later this year.
The Silver-York LaRouge-Teleiótita is a pure piece of Silver-York history, in the days of opulence and craftmanship the Teleiótita by Silver-York proved that they were a leader in these categories. The Teleiótita project was kept secret for many years until their unveiling in 1935. Two of these were crafted the first being the LaRouge-Teleiótita unveiled in late spring 1935 this car was an icon instantly, with it’s hand-crafted V16, it’s hand-shaped Aluminium body. The main crowd stealing thing about this car was its design… it was Art-Deco through and through from it’s opulent and grill design, to its sweeping arches this car was a piece of art and engineering.
This car was commissioned by the CEO of Silver-York himself as a gift to a close friend, several months later his own Marina-Teleiótit was unveiled, featuring a different design, two-tone paint, etc… More info on the history of LaRouge will be available at…
(If I get time more info will be posted I.E the history of this car)
2019 Automation EOTY Awards
1958 Mont Royal Montcalm Grand Luxe Phaéton
The third generation Mont Royal Montcalm was introduced in 1958 and took Mont Royal luxury to the next level. The design was cutting-edge at the time, with fins and large intakes that took their inspiration from the burgeoning jet age. This Grand Luxe Phaéton example was the range-topping convertible model. It is outfitted with the most luxurious hand-made interior of the range as well as the latest technological features of the year, such as power windows and seats, push-button transmission, and a 7" slot-fed record player under the dash.
Powering this behemoth of the road is an 8.5L V16, the first one bearing the Mont Royal name since the original company folded in 1932. This engine has been tested to produce 366 net horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque. This assured that the Montcalm Grand Luxe Phaéton could reach highway speeds faster than most cars of the era and reach speeds in excess of 130 mph.
The original retail price a Montcalm outfitted like this was approximately $6,000 USD and as such not many were sold, making this a rare classic.
shite forgot to post
Even though I said posts are only for today I’ll allow people to post throughout tomorrow since I’m moving in college today!
1963 Maladus GTS-R
The '63 GTS-R is one of the most sought after LMC racecars as it is the very first of the long running Maladus series. Built to compete in the 1963 World Sportscar Championship, its 357 V8 was heavily modified to output 490 net horsepower (394 hp in game). Heavy emphasis was put in aerodynamics to maximize use of its powerful platform. A front lip was fitted to battle front end lift that plagued the Maladus in early testing. The GTS-R would go through many iterations after this first model to try and stay on top in the fierce World Sportscar battle between manufacturers.
This is one of 4 '63 GTS-Rs in existence, the #24 car. It has been restored with all original and hand-built replica parts. This Maladus can reach nearly 160 mph and go 0-62 mph in 5.34 seconds with its original tires.
2020 Atlas FT-R concept
A limited hyper car from Atlas, the 2020 Atlas FT-R(Flat engine, Turbocharged, Racer), of which only 3 are being produced. This car is born and bred for racing, drawing from Atlas’ extensive Le mans expertise and heritage. From the Spirit modular flat engine located amidships to the ultra light weight carbon fibre-aluminum matrix rims, this vehicle has many examples of track technology(slightly tamed) for the road.
The FT-R is powered by a Spirit Modular flat engine(a line of flat engines that come in 4, 6, 8 and 12 cylinder configurations), which is based upon the engine used in the LM189’s twin turbocharged flat 4(sharing the same valves and turbochargers even). The Flat 8 used in the FT-R is equipped with twin turbos each producing 10 psi of boost. This allows the engine to produced 927 hp at 9,600 rpm and 555 lb-ft of torque at 7300 rpm, enough to throttle the FT-R to 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 234 miles per hour.
The FT-R utilizes a advanced carbon fibre monocoque and extensive use of carbon fibre through out the car help to keep the weight down to 2888 lbs. The aerodynamics and magnetic suspension are fully adjustable from the cockpit of the FT-R for on the fly tuning. All this allows for an average of 1.41g’s when the car is being pushed to its limit.
The interior uses a combination of carbon fibre and alcantara, to further its track focused nature while maintaining comfort of its occupants when off the track. It also comes with an impressive HUD system for daily driving and track day usage. The few examples of the Atlas FT-R are only available in dragon red paint.
Two models for sale are already sold for $15 million to private collectors.
Engine: 3.9L TFSI F8 DOHC Transmission: C18 Competition sequential

1959 Warren Toledo Special
''I absolutely love this car because it is from one of my favorite eras in car designs. We won the war, we are going to the moon, everything was great back then. Plus, you can have a family of four in that trunk, it’s so huge!" – Jay Leno
Powered by a 420 cubic inch (around 6.9L) v8, the Toledo special was the top trim of the brand’s flagship model. It made around 340 Horsepower.
A coupe and convertible model with an all automated power top, a first for Warren in '59, was also offered.
That '59 is a beauty! American automotive-baroque masterpiece.
1972 Lucara-Ciambella m65/70
Italian botique sports car manufacturer Lucara-Ciambella produced only a handful of the aluminum bodied, mid-engined modelo Sessantacinque, or m65, with the majority sold as exports to the United States. The /70 update was released in 1970, sporting a 384ci Turból V12 and considerably wider bodywork than the original m65. This 1972 was one of the very last of the coveted chrome-bumper models produced before the 1973 hiatus and subsequent /74 release with the ungainly US regulated impact bumpers.
As the engines were provided by Turból, the 1972 model was down on power compared to '70 and '71 models, as Turból made the switch to unleaded fuel and replaced the multi-carb setup with a single 4 barrel carburetor. It was still rated at a healthy 280 SAE net horsepower, hitting 60 in 5.6 seconds and topping out at 148 mph.
The m65/70 was intended to be a highly exclusive, stylish luxury coupe more so than a supercar. The interior is well appointed, and has a more spacious cabin and upright seating position compared to its mid-engined contemporaries. The suspension is much softer than one would expect in a vehicle of this type, tuned more for highway cruising than canyon carving.
Thank you everyone for your participation in this event. We hope you enjoyed taking part.
The next event will be the Frankfurt Auto Show, on September 10th.
Please do not unveil any more cars.
