Lotus Elise meets the girl it was named after

The Lotus Elise has been around for some 22 years, and this week the lightweight sports car reunited with the girl that inspired its name – Elisa Artioli. Her grandfather is former chairman of Lotus, Romano Artioli, who was overseeing the British sports car manufacturer when the Elise was launched in 1995. Elisa inspired the sports car's name, and was even present at the launch with the first production line-built example 22 years ago (below) which is the same car she's pictured with today.

Project WTF-2J. Episode 1: Building a 10 second Supra project car.

To say we wouldn't be where we are today without certain cars would be a lie, the Toyota Supra being no exception. Back in 2009 StreetFX sold its old 1996 Supra to move on to bigger and better things, although the bug of the Supra lay in wait at the back of my head for many years after. As sad as it was to see the old "WTF" drive off nearly 10 years ago, we had a feeling one day we'd be getting back behind the wheel of another 2J-powered Japanese icon.

Audi RS3 vs Jaguar I-Pace drag race - video

Internal combustion or electric power – which is quicker? Tesla has highlighted how hard electric vehicles can accelerate, but Jaguar has taken a slightly different approach with the I-Pace, shying away from bonkers 0-100km/h times. For now, anyway.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ walkaround - video

The upcoming Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is already the king of the 'Ring, but as yet we haven't had a close look at one. That's about to change. While CarAdvice is yet to get up close and personal with the Raging Bull's new flagship, the guys over at Top Gear have, and they've posted a cool video of it. Follow Ollie Marriage as he gives you the run-down of what's to come – it's the first time we've heard of the SVJ's power figure, too, at 760hp (567kW).

Maserati Levante GTS coming Down Under for MY2020

Maserati has confirmed the Levante GTS will be coming to Australia, but it's still a long way off touching down. The 404kW super-SUV won't be here until late in 2019, with Maserati confirming it'll be available for the 2020 model year. "From the moment the V8 Levante was hinted at, let alone revealed in the USA, we have had clients wishing to put their name down for the ultimate Maserati SUV,” said Glen Sealey, chief operating officer of Maserati Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
