McLaren has lopped the roof off its 570S, but don't expect the new McLaren 570S Spider to be any less potent. It'll still go from 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds.

World’s greatest driving roads: Todi to Orvieto, Italy

Let me start by saying, if you've never been to Italy – anywhere in Italy – go. Book a flight, pack a bag, and go. It's every bit as stupendously stunning as everyone returning from said European destination annoyingly says it is. Apart from being a venerable hotbed of topographic and gastronomic delights, Italy is chock-full of some incredible stretches of road...

The most high-performance drop-top Audi ever has been revealed, with the 2018 Audi R8 Spyder V10 plus claiming the title of the "fastest series-production convertible model from the brand with the four rings".

2017 McLaren 570S Spider revealed: 3.2-second 0-100km/h for $435,750 drop-top McLaren

We knew it was coming, but here it is. The McLaren 570S Spider has been officially revealed, and it's no mere poser. Claimed to offer the same high-performance dynamic attributes and refinement of the 570S Coupe, but “with the added exhilaration of open-air driving”, the previously-confirmed 2017 McLaren 570S Spider combines the Coupe’s carbon-fibre MonoCell II chassis, with an electrically-operated two-piece hardtop...

Miataland: Where Japanese pride meets Italian passion

“I started my collection with the Mazda MX-5, and then one time, I had the chance to share this collection with some friends – enthusiasts of the MX-5 – and I saw in them the happiness to see that particular car. “But I feel I was really happy to share my collection with other enthusiasts...

World's greatest driving roads: Highway 89 A, Arizona, USA

I've just discovered that I love desert. No, not double-cream-topped, Belgian-choc-filled, Heston Blumenthal-frozen Masterchef-style dessert, but the sun-scorched, dusty, cactus-smattered, don't-go-wandering-off-or-you'll-die environment of America's Wild West. On my first-ever visit, I've become smitten by Arizona, and all of the (ahem) good, the bad and the ugliness it crams inside 300,000 square kilometres...

2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet revealed

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet has been revealed ahead of its official stepping out at the 2017 Geneva motor show. Stylistically, the E-Class convertible holds no great surprises, as it looks like an E-Class coupe with its top lopped off. There's LED headlights up front, and thin LED tail-lights at the rear...

World's greatest driving roads: Western Cape, South Africa

For many of us, when targeting great driving road hot spots to explore across the globe, South Africa doesn't come immediately to mind. Nor is it much of a holiday list topper, at least for those who aren't in 'the know' and haven't sampled the colour and diversity the rainbow nation has to offer...

BMW i8 roadster spied for the first time

A prototype for the BMW i8 roadster has been spied for the first time undergoing testing in Europe, giving us a first look at the drop-top hybrid sports car. While the vehicle is covered in swirly black-and-white camouflage, the open-top sports car in the images is easily distinguishable as an i8, while the lack of a metal roof is fairly obvious as well...

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet review

The Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet is a throwback to another era, with twin-turbo V8 power underpinning the muscle car-like drop-top. But has the loss of a roof compromised the convertible boulevard cruiser?
