The Best New Cars of 2014: Lamborghini Veneno Roadster and Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid
New year so you know what that means… NEW CARS! For all car lovers like me, these two new, amazing, sexy cars will be something to make your day and show everyone around you.
The Lamborghini and Porsche series are two of the most desired vehicles around the world and lucky for us they’re back with new models! With their mouth watering, articulate, unique external and interior designs, say hello to the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster and Porsche Panamera S E – Hybrid.
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Colours: Red, Silver
Seat Capacity: 2 passengers
This model contains an ear bursting 6.5L V12 engine with an electric motor. The resulting 750 horsepower is also very impressive. According to Lamborghini, it will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.the system packs a 750-watt, 10-speaker sound system controlled by a touchscreen mounted on the windshield header and a controller on the center console. Monster Audio CEO, Noel Lee, the man behind Beats by Dr. Dre, said of the project: “Producing a sound stage for this car is a particular delight for me and I am proud that Lamborghini placed its trust in Monster to do this. Lamborghini stands out for being the best Italian luxury super sports car manufacturer and it’s a privilege for me to be on-board with this project.” Damn.
Porsche Panamera S E – Hybrid
Colours: White, Black, Grey, Silver
Seat Capacity: 4 passengers
Although it may be much cheaper than the Veneno, it is no less quality. Officially, Porsche says the S E-Hybrid can go “more than 20 miles” on electricity alone, and we were able to travel 24 miles (under moderate acceleration and with the air conditioning on) before the engine came on.
The gasoline-electric hybrid holds the honor of being the first luxury car to offer plug-in capability, meaning it can be connected to either standard 110-volt outlets or a 400-volt system rather than simply relying on kinetic energy produced on the run to charge the battery that powers its electric motor. The default mode is E-Power; as long as there is sufficient charge in the battery it will always use the electric motor to start off. One of the most Eco-friendly cars Porsche has produced. Refinement levels in this mode are spectacular, every bit as impressive as a pure electric car, with only the sound of the tires rolling across the concrete to spoil the silence.
