One-off Bugatti, McLaren 750S: Today’s Car News

Bugatti’s one-off Chiron Profilée went under the hammer at auction in Paris this week and ended up selling for double its pre-auction estimate. The final price paid, including the buyer’s premium, was over $10 million, making it the most expensive new car ever sold at auction.

McLaren’s successor to the 720S is due to be unveiled later this year and word on the road is that it will be called the 750S. In line with McLaren’s alphanumeric naming strategy, the 750S name implies that the car will produce 750 hp, or about 740 hp.

Porsche is working on a mid-cycle update for its electric sedan and Taycan station wagon, and a prototype for the former has been spotted. There will be new technology in the headlights and rumors also point to the availability of a new performance flagship.
