The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is finally here – why not pair it with a 3/4-sized Ferrari Testa Rossa J for your kid?
Boys will be boys – and, oh boy, they need their toys. From land to sea, we’ve got you covered. So, whether a full-grown petrolhead seeking the latest on what could be 2021’s hottest supercar, or an aspiring underage driver coveting the classiest teen-friendly wheels in town, here are STYLE’s picks of the newest luxury launches from the world of electrifying supercars and swoon-worthy yachts.
Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4
The lines are immediately recognisable from the 70s Countach: the patriarch of modern supercars and touchstone of Lamborghini design. Under the hood, the car combines the inimitable aspirated V12 experience and sound with the supercapacitor technology developed for the Sián. Referencing “LP 112”, the internal project code for the original Countach, the car will be produced in a run of 112 units. It will be delivered starting the first quarter of 2022, to owners privileged to drive a piece of automotive history reimagined for the future.
The child-sized Testa Rossa J
The curvaceous Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa from 1957 is an absolute classic, one of the most successful cars in Ferrari and motorsport history – and the few surviving are priced accordingly. Now though you can feel a little of the thrill of driving one with an electric 3/4-size version, the Testa Rossa J, produced in association with The Little Car Company.
Limited to a run of just 299, the replica has been produced from the plans of the original and handbuilt in Britain. Attention to detail is exquisite with the bodywork constructed from hand-beaten aluminium, the same process employed in the 250 itself.
The batteries powering the electric engine are positioned at the front of the car, and provide for an estimated top speed of 60km/h (37mph) and a range of about 90km (56mph), depending on driving style. While the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is designed for anyone aged 14 years and up, driving this scale replica will bring joy to every Ferrari enthusiast.
Meet Dynamiq’s new superyacht, Stefania
From the Italian superyacht company Dynamiq comes their newest creation, Stefania. The 41-metre design features an exterior created by Monaco-based studio Dobroserdov Design, with an exclusive colour palette of metallic gold and dark brown that sets her apart from the standard white yachts on the water. The interior is similarly distinguished by the work of Miami-based Giuseppina Arena, and includes a spacious pool for up to 10 people and luxurious furniture from Fendi.
Aside from looking great, the superyacht performs at the top of her class, complying with the strictest RINA (Registro Italiano Navale) Commercial Class standards, with Comfort and Green Star Plus notations. As an evolution of Dynamiq’s Gran Turismo Transatlantic concept, Stefania has it all: extravagant looks, advanced technology and attention to detail.
