Laffite Supercars is a company that has been created by Bruno Laffite, who is the nephew of six-time Formula One race winner, Jacques Laffite. The company has introduced the new Laffite G-Tec X-Road, which is essentially an off-roader with supercar levels of performance. It uses a 720hp, 6.2-litre V8 and it sends power to the rear wheels via a 6-speed sequential gearbox. The model weighs only 1,300kg and it comes equipped with specially tuned off-road suspension. Only 30 units of the G-Tec X-Road will be produced, with the company claiming an electric version of the off-roader will also be available later on. What do you guys think of this crazy off-road supercar? Image source
Folks who've been to Stuttgart and some other German cities may have heard of the company/concept known as Meilenwerk. This is a museum for supercars, vintage cars and classic cars, but they may even be rented out for a brief period, and I guess some sales have been made here. I've seen cars from different eras in this place, from the 1930s, the 50s, the 80s, and the present age. This place even has a couple of airplanes. It started off as a hangar, but is now a museum of cars, a few planes, and also has a library and some super-expensive cafes. I've taken loads of photos here, on my Nokia N8, and keep uploading to this set on my Flickr page.
