Kicking off the new year for our week by week Petrolhead Corner, we proceed with another rundown; the best new cars coming in 2021. Obviously these sort of records are abstract, and a couple of us might at one point in life guarantee to possess cars in this class, yet it is ideal to dream about it, isn’t that so? Anyway, still in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, what cars would we be able to hope to see this year? Here’s a determination of a couple, completely one-sided and absolutely random!
This week we have a serious scope of vehicles, from a most likely very competent off-roader to a major electric truck, right to a super games vehicle. 2021 will without a doubt have significantly more coming up for us than simply these couple of cars however we made a determination of what is fascinating to us, and what maybe you might want to see. Obviously you, as a peruser, are consistently welcome to recommend different cars to us that didn’t make the rundown.
We get going this rundown with a vehicle that has now been a long time really taking shape, however is planned to be conveyed to customers sooner or later in 2021. It is the most recent offering, alongside another vehicle by another vehicle creator, in the “F1-vehicle for the road” class; the Mercedes-AMG One.
The idea is a long way from new; form a vehicle as near, or with however much tech as could reasonably be expected, from a F1 race vehicle. Ferrari did it with the Ferrari F40 and LaFerrari for example, however Mercedes’ methodology offers something profoundly extraordinary; its 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 mixture motor is right now the set-up as managed by the FIA for Formula 1. It’s a long way from simple to plan a street vehicle around a motor that is worked for unadulterated speed just, yet the gearheads from Germany are endeavoring to do that nonetheless. The greatest difficulties are obviously; wellbeing and dependability.
As said, just a 1.6 liter V6, though turbocharged and connected to a mixture framework, is utilized in the One. However, similar as a genuine current F1 motor, it is said to create in excess of 1,000 strength and fire up to 11,000rpm. Do you need it? No. Do you need it? Presumably yes! Zero to 200kph should take under 6 seconds, and it has an expected maximum velocity north of 350kph. Pretty stunning numbers! Four electric engines help the petroleum motor accomplish these velocities, alongside cunningly planned air and race-inferred suspension and frame innovation. Cost? Despite the fact that not, at this point important since each of the 275 cars have been offered, all at a cost of near 3 million USD.

Bentley Mulliner Bacalar
Bentley is maybe viewed as a definitive extravagance driving experience, with an inheritance spreading over many years. For quite a long time, they have been offering what they guarantee are the best cars on the planet. Be that as it may, even inside Bentley there’s extravagance, and ultra-extravagance! For 2020 they presented their Mulliner program, an opportunity to finely make a bespoke Bentley car for a chose customers as it were. Under the Mulliner umbrella you will have three alternatives; Coachbuilt, Classic and Collections. The last two are continuation of recorded Bentley’s and unique commissions dependent on existing models.
The most energizing of the three is the Coachbuilt classification, dispatched with the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar. Piece of an odd name, gotten from a Mexican lake , yet it is a Barchetta-style Grand Tourer with an exceptional body and huge customisation alternatives. The body looks like the Bentley Continental GT in its quintessence, however with updated front and back areas blended in with styling signals from the Bentley EXP 100 GT idea , and as said; no roof! Just 12 will be made, all apportioned to the most faithful customers who will spend as much as 1.5 million USD for their Bacalar.
Bentley asserts just the entryway handles and focus a piece of the controlling wheel are extended from other Bentley models, yet the rest is bespoke to the Bacalar. Customers have an immense scope of materials and completions to browse, including fleece and tweed for the upholstery and 5500 year old riverwood for framing.

Maserati MC20 & Shamal restomod
A new Maserati is continually energizing, despite the fact that they are now and again somewhat, indeed, defective. In any event they have a standing of being so. By the by, when the Italian extravagance vehicle producer declares new plans, the car world tunes in. Maserati prodded us with a new games vehicle that guaranteed new tech and rankling execution, lastly took the covers off the Maserati MC20, with the “MC” as a gesture to the Maserati Corse program, showing they (ideally) will take it racing.
The MC20 is a compact and smooth looking vehicle, fitted with an all-new 3.0-liter twin-super V6 creating 631bhp. Cooperating with body subject matter expert and motorsport engineers Dallara, the new Maserati MC20 has a carbon fiber structure with foundations in aluminum for the motor and gearbox. This will without a doubt bring about a lightweight (as could really be expected) vehicle.
Performance-wise the Maserati MC20 is said to take under three seconds to arrive at 100kph and will officer on to a maximum velocity of over 320kph. Supposedly a convertible rendition and an all-electric MC20 can likewise be considered typical. Different things to be energized by are the butterfly entryways, Formula 1 tech for the motor, full flexible suspension and different driving modes.
Car and Driver has all the information on the all-new Maserati MC20 that is accessible up until now.
Something else that is not too far off from the Trident (Maserati’s epithet, after their logo) is a continuation program of an astonishing verifiable Maserati model; the Shamal. The Maserati Shamal was a square shaped, restless car from the mid nineties, a period where the brand was known to deliver some somewhat dodgy cars. The Shamal is an uncommon monster, with just 369 made, all fueled by a twin-super V8 in the front. It doesn’t know we’ll see this vehicle in 2021 and very little else is thought about it up until now, however risks are it will be included in our week after week roundabout segment!
Drivetribe shared the short story on the Maserati Shamal restomod some time back, so check it out!
Yes, lovely people, another Z-vehicle is being created! Nissan, or Datsun when taking a gander at the absolute first models, has a standing to maintain with regards to Z-assigned cars. It is the ‘other’ gathering of Nissans to get amped up for, close to the Skyline/GTR cars. Lately vintage ones have seen a flood in notoriety, and accordingly in prices.
The new Nissan Proto Z shows us what the following Nissan Z-vehicle may resemble. Anticipate that it should be possibly somewhat refreshed when heading for creation, as the styling is an unmistakable continuation of the 350Z and 370Z. Also, it’s no time like the present too as the 370Z is as of now ten years underway. The specs are directly in accordance with what we would need from a Z-vehicle; V6, cycle of force, smooth roadster styling, drive to the back. Gracious, and a six-speed manual transmission, a perishing breed.
The plan for the Proto Z is filled with unpretentious clues to previous Z-cars, similar to the subtleties in the headlights mirroring the 240ZG from the seventies (sold in Japan just) and the side-profile particularly in accordance with first-gen Z-cars as well. The taillights clue to another exemplary Z-vehicle, the 300ZX from the nineties. All things considered it is an awesome looking vehicle. Short, bold and forceful. Costs are not affirmed yet.
More subtleties on the Nissan Proto Z can be found on Top Gear .
A profoundly anticipated electric vehicle is expected not out of the ordinary some place in late 2021, the desired Tesla Cybertruck. The offbeat machine made a crushing presentation – in a real sense – when at its official dispatch a steel ball was tossed at the evidently rugged glass window. The outcome? A broke side window. Second endeavor? Same result.
Nevertheless, the Tesla Cybertruck is an anxiously anticipated vehicle, and I for one am interested to consider something to be unconventional in plan drive by out and about one day. Generally this science fiction style of car configuration is saved for idea cars just, not cars to go into creation. You can see components of such an idea leak through underway cars, yet this thing? Wow!
And indeed, the vehicle is an immediate logical inconsistency maybe to what it implies being a petrolhead as it is a full electric vehicle yet the specs are very amazing. Three models will be accessible as it appears, with different force yields. The most grounded/quickest model, the Tri-Motor AWD, will do zero to 100kph in 2.9 seconds, has an expected 800-kilometer range and a towing limit of above and beyond 6 tons. Cost is set at simply under USD 70,000 for the top model however start at USD 40,000.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
To cap off this rundown is a vehicle that ought to have been conveyed to customers in 2020 however the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic pushed back its conveyance date to 2021; the Aston Martin Valkyrie. Once more a Formula 1 propelled vehicle for the street, with an exceptionally complex motor. Where the Mercedes utilizes a similar set-up as the current F1 cars, the Valkyrie by Aston Martin adopts an alternate strategy. Created with Red Bull Racing and skeleton virtuoso Adrian Newey, the Valkyrie will have a cutting edge normally suctioned 6.5 liter V12 by Cosworth, combined with a mixture framework by Rimac. Combined force yield is an amazing 1,160bhp.
That V12 will create 1,000bhp all alone and have a redline 11.100rpm, both the most elevated number ever for a regularly suctioned motor (which means no turbo’s). Albeit the vehicle is being developed for quite a while at this point, and will take a short time longer to be conveyed to customers, Aston Martin took it out for a turn at Silverstone preceding the 2019 British Grand Prix. From that point forward the vehicle has undergone testing and a couple of minor changes however all searches useful for a 2021 dispatch.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie will have an extremist new streamlined bundle, with a special looking body subsequently. Taking a gander at it from the front back of the vehicle will show the gigantic Venturi burrows under the vehicle to create downforce. Ability to weight is focused on 1 kilo for each drive, a number just couple of cars can profess to accomplish. Zero to 100kph is done and tidied in 2.6 seconds, maximum velocity is yet to be affirmed I accept however anticipate that it should be all the way into the 300s (kph). Just 150 will be constructed, costing 3 million dollars and up.
EVO has the full subtleties on this shocking piece of auto designing, including heaps of photos of the vehicle. Motor1 has the video of the vehicle being driven by Red Bull Racing drivers Max Verstappen and Alex Albon:
