10 Mais esperados e desejados carros para 2014

10 Most Anticipated and Desired Cars of 2014
If there's one thing more tantalizing than a car that comes out this year, it's one that comes out next year. The current model may provide the most cutting-edge technology the industry has to offer, but next year's model dangles just out of reach, making it the most succulent forbidden fruit in the automotive marketplace.
Automakers have begun rolling out their 2014 models, and drivers are in the process of salivating over them accordingly.

1. 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C

In 2009, Fiat and Chrysler formed a strategic alliance. American motorists now have access to cars they never had before, such as the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C.
"The 4C will be a tightly focused thrill ride in the spirit of classic Italian lightweight sports cars". "A curb weight of 2,500 pounds means the four-cylinder, 237 horsepower turboengine provides more than enough thrust to keep things interesting when strafing a corner."
And anyone interested in buying this car should do so sooner rather than later.
"Only 1,200 will be allotted to the U.S. market."

2. 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

The British car manufacturer Aston Martin is known the world over for luxury performance vehicles that are nothing less than top of the line. The 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante keeps this tradition alive.
"The drop-top version of the brand's top performance car shares many of the coupe's features, including a carbon fiber body, a 565 horsepower V12 engine and 180-plus miles per hour top speed". "The three-layer top keeps things placid at high speeds, but it can be lowered in 14 seconds when traveling at 30 miles per hour or less."

3. 2014 BMW 4 Series

BMW's 3 Series is commonly thought of as a sports sedan line, but it's been available in convertible, coupe and wagon configurations as well. For 2014, the convertible and the coupe will become part of the 4 Series, which makes its triumphant showroom entrance in November.
"The coupe is more than just a two-door version of the 3 Series". "It offers unique styling inside and out, a powerful yet fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine and superb handling."

4. 2014 Cadillac ELR

In 2009, Cadillac introduced a concept car, "Converj." It never reached the production stage, but many of its elements were retained for the 2014 Cadillac ELR.
"An electric motor moves the ELR, but a gasoline engine can power the motor for a 300-plus-mile driving range". "It will feature a plush interior, 20-inch wheels and a concierge service to help owners with everything from charging questions to dinner reservations."

5. 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

No nameplate is as associated with the muscle car era as the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Next spring, the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will go on sale for about $55,000.
"Its capability comes from a dry-sump LS7 V8 engine making over 500 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque". "It features carbon ceramic brakes, extra cooling ducts and unique bodywork with high-speed downforce, plus a significant reduction in overall weight."

6. 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari

It has a top speed of 217 miles per hour and 949 horsepower, and can go from zero to 60 in a tidy three seconds. So who cares what they call it?
"The Ferrari-squared has a low profile and a curvaceous cockpit constructed of carbon fiber to help offset the increased weight of the hybrid drivetrain". "Unique features include a fixed driver's seat with an adjustable steering wheel and pedals to meet the needs of various driver sizes."
The car will be made in a limited run of 499 units. Before you call the dealership to reserve one, be aware that its price tag will exceed $1 million.

7. 2014 McLaren P1

The 2014 McLaren P1 is a supercar that will sell for $1.2 million, so it may not be the ideal conveyance for a run to 7-11 for beer and toilet paper. If you're one of those people for whom money is no object, though, you could do a lot worse. 
"The P1's hybrid drivetrain uses a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and electric motor to produce 903 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque". "That kind of force lets it get to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds, and if you stay on the throttle it will hit 124 miles per hour in seven seconds."

8. 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder

The 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder is not just a highly anticipated car but a meisterwerk of performance and fuel efficiency, who expects a low production run. He also sees it selling out quickly, despite a starting price of $850,000.
"Composed of a 4.6-liter, 608 horsepower V8 engine—working with three electric motors good for an additional 286 horsepower—the 918 Spyder can hit 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds while lapping the Nurburgring in less than seven minutes,"

9. 2014 Lamborghini Veneno

The Lamborghini Veneno is a $4 million supercar that will only have 3 examples created. Where does the name Veneno come from? It means “venom” in Spanish, a fitting name for this car considering those headlights look like mean snake fangs.
The Veneno is built on the Aventador’s chassis and uses a 6.5-liter V12, good for 740bhp. Mated to the monster engine is a 7-speed semi-automatic transmission. Inside the Veneno is a full carbon-fiber monocoque that is not only lightweight, but also incredibly sturdy. The seats are made of Lamborghini’s Forged Composite and laid throughout the interior is the light woven carbon-fiber CarbonSkin®. 
Each Veneno will feature a green, red or white color scheme to celebrate the cars Italian heritage. Want to reserve one of the three Venenos? Unfortunately, three buyers have already put down their deposits.


10. 2014 Nissan GT-R

The 2014 Nissan GT-R has been retuned and re-engineered for better responsiveness at the race track, while simultaneously offering a higher degree of luxury and refinement than ever before in the Japanese automakers performance flagship. Making its official North American debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new GT-R is a careful evolution of an already formidable force in the world of exotic cars. With acceleration to challenge a Bugatti Veyron, and a level of high-speed maneuverability that shames many of the finest Italian supercars, the GT-R has already earned plenty of respect.
