It's a clean-sheet design from the ground up, and Bentley has thrown everything at its latest third-generation Flying Spur – and it shows. It's a genuine tour de force in almost every facet.
The M8 Competition is up there with one of the best BMWs ever built, at least, on track. How it performs as a daily driver is unknown until we put the car through its paces in local conditions in 2020.
BMW is late to the game with this new CLS and A7 rival, but I'd argue the all-new 8 Series Gran Coupe is more resolved – even with the lower-spec 3.0-litre model.
Among enthusiasts and car spotters, it's got hero status - now there's an all-new Audi RS7. It's faster, considerably meaner, and a bit greener too.
Audi's popular high-performance SQ5 TDI is back after a two-year absence, only this time it has plenty more grunt under the bonnet and sounds even better.
There's no doubt about its on-road presence – it's got that covered in the same way as its accomplished handling. But when it comes to ride comfort and general drivability, well, that's when the wheels start to fall off (not literally, you understand).
In the Q3 Sportback, Audi introduces a racier version of its newest upcoming Q3 small SUV, and it's bound to attract plenty of admirers since it gives up very little in the way of space.
Few, if any, long-term testers have managed to prove so popular with so many of our journalists, as well as various CarAdvice staff, as the Lexus GS F. Even after eight months, this is a performance sedan that has continued to deliver genuine desirability on so many levels including ride, handling, performance and comfort.
I'm sitting on 240km/h on Germany's Autobahn in the current Mini John Cooper Works, and it's rock solid going into the sweeping bend. Oh, did I tell you I'm on the way from Munich to the Nürburgring for N24?
If the high-speed blatt from Munich to the Nurburgring in the latest Mini John Cooper Works hatch in time to watch the 24-hour race wasn’t high enough on my bucket list, then a chance invite from our good friend Ron Simons of RSRNurburg to head over to Spa Francorchamps for one of its premium track days was surely the golden ticket...
McLaren has this week given its latest creation, known simply as the GT, its Australian debut in Sydney. Promising class-leading performance, comfort and space, the new GT is positioned in the marque’s Sports Series line-up and priced at $399,995 before on-road costs – slightly higher above its 570S sibling ($395,000) but below the existing 570GT ($415,000)...
Level pegging with the clouds at more than 1600 meters in New Zealand’s frigid Cardrona Valley, you’ll find the Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds, less than an hour’s drive from Queenstown on New Zealand's stunningly picturesque South Island. And, just to be clear, we’re not talking about an X-Games venue or an extreme winter sports training facility...
Sitting in a car so often, you get to develop some thoughts on how it's all put together. Here's what we think.
Accelerating at full tilt from standstill in the naturally serene and magnificently undulating Oregon countryside outside Portland, and I swear it feels like I’m smack bang in the middle of a live set on the sequel to 2004's I, Robot. That’s because we’re blasting along at warp speed on board the world’s first fully electric production series motorcycle from a major manufacturer...
The latest Elantra Sport is at the pointy end of the warmed-up performance segment delivering solid fun behind the wheel, as well as practicality and good looks. Plenty of standard kit, too, if you go with this Premium variant.
