Turn Your Ride into an Artistic Display with Supercar Capsule

As enthusiasts, we find ourselves falling in love with supercars because of their incredible performance, but high-performance exotics are more than just cars that have blistering performance. They’re cars with gorgeous designs. Everyone knows that a Lamborghini doesn’t look like a Toyota, even if they’re unsure of how much horsepower the loud, angular machine has. Supercars, after all, are moving works of art. So, why not spend $45,000 on displaying them like the pieces of art that they are?

If you have a supercar and can swallow the idea of spending the same amount of money as a new Audi TT on creating a display for your beautiful and expensive, Supercar Capsule has the product for you. The United Arab Emirates-based company wants to give supercar owners the ability to design, from the ground up, their own unique display. Whether it’s transforming your garage, extensively changing a room, or placing a glass capsule on the outside of your house, Supercar Capsule gives owners the ability to turn any space into a private showroom. Forget about stuffing your prized possession into a temperature-controlled garage. This is the proper way to store a supercar.

Supercar Capsule offers four different ways to display your car. The first one is called the Villa Extension, which will see the company place a display box in one of your home’s walls —in your living room, for instance — so you can have your cup of coffee directly next to your car. Then, there’s the Box Refurbishment that involves taking your garage and turning it into a display that’s worthy of housing an exotic. The Detached Box is, just as its name implies, a separate glass box from your home. Lastly, for the lucky people that have more than just one car to display, there’s the Mechanised Tower. It gives you the ability to showcase two or more vehicles, one sitting atop of another, with a mechanism to safely move the vehicles.

Looking at things through our critical glasses, supercar owners rarely drive their cars. Who can blame them? We probably wouldn’t drive our $400,000 cars often if we could afford one either. Instead, we would choose to keep the cars stowed away in a garage or a temperature-controlled facility. Why do that when you can display your supercar in a glass structure? If it were up to us, we’d choose to have a Villa Extension installed, because being able to take a glance at your car from the comfort of your couch is a special thing.

Supercar Capsule handles nearly every aspect of the build with prices starting at $45,000. With owners being able to go as far down the aesthetic rabbit hole as they’d like, we’re sure sky’s the limit when it comes to how expensive displays can be. But take a look at a few of these finished displays. They’re breathtaking and so much better than just letting your car sit in the garage.

If you can afford a supercar, we’re sure spending some money to get a handsome display that allows you to enjoy your car even when it’s sitting still is a good investment. Even if you don’t have a supercar, but a classic or a car that’s been in your family for generations, one of Supercar Capsule’s displays, somehow, look like money well spent.

Lamborghini’s upcoming supercar will have a 1,001-hp plug-in hybrid V12 powertrain
Lamborghini news: Here’s a sneak peek at what engine will replace the outgoing naturally aspirated V12

Lamborghini is known for making world-class naturally aspirated engines. From the Huracan’s V10 to the Aventador’s V12, soulful engines are Lamborghini’s thing. Unfortunately, Lamborghini has discontinued the Aventador and its mighty V12 engine. While we don’t know what’s in store for the Aventador’s replacement, Lamborghini has given the world a look into its upcoming powertrain, which will include a plug-in hybrid component with three electric motors.
A PHEV from Lamborghini? It certainly sounds like the end times. But if you think Lamborghini is making something akin to the Toyota Prius Prime, that’s not what’s happening here. At the heart of the plug-in hybrid powertrain is a 6.5-liter V12 engine. The new L545 motor is a major upgrade of the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12. The new engine weighs 37 pounds less, has more power, has a higher redline, and features a raised compression ratio of 12.6:1.

Getting into actual numbers, the new 6.5-liter V12 engine is good for 814 horsepower on its own. That’s a large upgrade over the Aventador, which made up to 769 horsepower in its most potent configurations. While peak horsepower comes at 9,250 rpm, the engine hits its redline at 9,500 rpm. If there’s one figure that hasn’t grown a lot, it’s torque. The new V12 is rated at 535 pound-feet, which is only 4 pound-feet more than the old 12-cylinder motor.
In addition to giving the engine a major overhaul, Lamborghini has also repositioned the way the gearbox and engine are packaged together. Unlike the Aventador, which had a single-clutch transmission that was positioned in front of the engine, Lamborghini has turned the new V12 180 degrees. Additionally, power is being routed through a new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that Lamborghini designed that will sit behind the engine.
So far, these would be massive changes on their own, but the engine is getting a large helping hand from a plug-in hybrid component. Lamborghini will assist the V12 engine with three electric motors. Two axial-flux motors are located at the front – one on each wheel – and a third electric motor at the back that’s integrated into the transmission. The front electric motors allow for torque vectoring, while the rear electric motor can act as a starter motor, generator, or an extra source of power. On their own, each motor is capable of producing 148 horsepower – roughly the same amount of power as a compact car. Combined, Lamborghini claims the V12 engine and the electric motors are good for 1,001 horsepower.

These are Lamborghini’s final V12-powered supercars

The march of time slows for no one, not even exotic automakers like Lamborghini. When the automaker introduced the Aventador Ultimae, we thought it marked the end of the V12 Lamborghini and the Aventador platform. Lamborghini, though, is having some trouble saying goodbye and has introduced two one-offs that it’s using as a true send-off to the V12 engine and the Aventador that came out in 2011.
The one-offs are called the Invencible coupe and Auténtica roadster. Like the majority of limited-edition specials from Lamborghini, the two one-offs utilize the current Aventador’s platform. That means the models also come with the same 6.5-liter V12 engine that’s found in the Aventador Ultimae trim. So, power is rated at 769 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque – mega figures by any measure. The two will also feature all-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering.

Ferrari 812 Superfast Review: A Down-To-Earth Supercar
Ferrari 812 Superfast Review

Kids create their own universes of what’s possible and what’s reasonable. You can break out the hard numbers and explain why Santa Claus can’t possibly visit the roughly 1.2 billion homes on Earth in a single night while still resembling a rotund old man (he’d look more like pink goo at that rate of speed), but a kid will easily brush all evidence aside because it’s just more fun to believe the fantasy.

When I was young, I didn’t accord precious mental real estate to Santa’s magic – at age six, I bluntly asked my parents if they were posing as the North Pole’s most famous resident – and rather filled my internal library with automotive stats and features. At the time, I didn’t realize I should be admiring the men and women who designed and engineered these vehicles, so I let the cars themselves become heroes. Sure, at Halloween I’d dress up as Batman, but that’s only because I wouldn’t make it very far around the neighborhood crawling on all four “wheels” in my car costume. A test run the night before let the proverbial air out of my tires.
