Sweet Rides for Halloween 2018: Cars in Orange and Black

© McLaren Automotive LimitedTricked-Out Treats
This year for Halloween we decided to keep things simple with a fun list of interesting cars we’ve seen (or driven) recently, in the seasonally spooky colors of orange and black. Although some of these cars deliver frightening performance or sinister looks, we chose them because of their Halloween garb. Without a doubt, these vehicles would be a treat to drive on All Hallows’ Eve — or any other night of the year.

McLaren’s current model in the Super Series that debuted at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the 720S offers the broadest range of capability from comfortable to extreme performance. Powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque, the McLaren 720S will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and from zero to 124 mph in 7.8 seconds. Orange has been offered for other McLaren models; the 720S features Azores Orange.

Lamborghini has turned up the wick on the mid-engine V10 Huracan with the Huracan Performante, utilizing forged carbon fiber to reduce weight by almost 90 pounds as well as active aerodynamics to improve performance. The Huracan Performante’s normally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine generates 630 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque and will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds with a top track speed of 200 mph.

As if the Nissan GT-R wasn’t already imposing enough — when the exterior design was updated for the 2017 model year Nissan added Katsura Orange to the color palette. Power from the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 increased to 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque, delivered to all four wheels through a 6-speed dual clutch transmission.

A signature color for Lamborghini’s top supercar, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 powered by a 700-horspower V12 engine was first shown in orange in 2011. Lamborghini has since added more powerful Aventador S and Aventador Superveloce versions, but the original Aventador LP 700-4 is still one of the first cars that comes to mind when we think of orange cars at Halloween.

The Jaguar X-X75 Concept was on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show several years ago before it appeared in the James Bond movie, “Spectre.” Unfortunately this beautiful Jag sports car never made it to production, but It’s still one of our favorite orange cars.

Ford debuted the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition last August at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Even though the Ford GT Heritage Edition is more blue than orange, the orange trim is an important element of the historic Gulf Oil livery. Plus, we simply love this car.
