Porsche PanameraPorsche Panamera Is on Top

The Porsche Panamera is currently at number one with the #porschepanamera hashtag being used more than 334,000 times. Prices of the Panamera start at about $214,000 drive for the base model. It can rise to a whopping $450,000 for the top-spec Turbo S E-Hybrid model. While Porsche takes a more style and comfort approach to motors than the company’s sports cars such as the 911, it’s still a wonderful piece of machinery.

The Turbo S E-Hybrid combines a 420kW twin-turbocharged V8 engine with a 100kW electric motor that’s complemented by a 14.1 kWh battery. The results are astonishing – 515 kW/870 NM that does 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds.


Up next in the chart is the “big boss” among luxury cars, the Rolls-Royce Phantom. It has been hashtagged more than 250,000 times. The high-baller of premium vehicles is priced at about $1m. However, they are extremely customizable, so the price of most Phantoms would be far more than the $1 million marks.

Ford of Europe Brought the Virtual Fordzilla P1 to Life

In August 2020, Ford of Europe unveiled the Fordzilla P1, a virtual concept car that would feature in a racing video game in 2021. The company also shared its plans to produce a full-scale model of the vehicle to explore the parallels between the real and virtual worlds.

Ford of Europe - Fordzilla P1The real-life, full-scale model of the futuristic vehicle was recently presented by Ford. While it’s quite common for video game developers to transfer real cars into computer games, this is the first time ever an automaker has brought a virtual automobile to life, and the result is mind-blowing.

Engelmann and Ariño Created an Automotive Masterpiece

Officially known as the Team Fordzilla P1, this race car features an interior designed by Robert Engelmann and an exterior envisioned by Arturo Ariño, two of Ford’s most prominent automobile designers.

Team Fordzilla Logo The vehicle is built around a monocoque that is partially covered by a large, hyper-transparent canopy designed to protect both the pilot and co-pilot. The canopy highlights the car’s unique F1-like driving position and obfuscates the boundaries between the interior and exterior.

The Fordzilla P1 Is Designed to Heighten the Thrill of Racing

In the cockpit, drivers will find LED notification panels that offer updates on the track status in their peripheral view. The steering wheel has an integrated screen that enables live data transfers with the pit team. Engelmann designed the interior to help the pilots minimize any distractions and focus on the enjoyment of racing.

The New Fordzilla P1 The exterior of the Fordzilla P1 is an amalgamation between a sleek GT-like front end and an exposed rear end that pays homage to aerodynamics and the rawness of racing circuits. The flawlessly sculpted front fenders and body side panels add a perfect finishing touch to this absolute head-turner.

The car is 186.25 inches long, 78.7 inches wide, and 35 inches tall. It sits on 21-inch tires and is slightly longer, narrower, and lower than Ford’s current GT, which is why many automotive experts believe that it will be used as the base for the company’s next Grand Tourer.
