Lamborghini: Urus will double global sales by Q4 2019

Under its arrow-head-edged bonnet lies a mighty 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 (each of the turbos are also twin-scroll units) making 485kW of power and 850Nm of torque, sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Audi R8: No replacement planned - report

There's no denying the Audi R8 is a fantastic supercar, but it may not be getting a replacement in the long term, according to a new report out of the US. Speaking with Car and Driver at the 2018 Geneva motor show, Audi's R&D boss, Peter Mertens, said there are no current plans for a new-generation model. "I would say so," he said, when asked if there was no successor for the V10-engined supercar in the pipeline, though he added: "Never say never – performance cars are good for Audi".

Renault Megane RS280: Cup Chassis joins the options list

Renault Australia has reversed course, adding a Cup Chassis option to the lower-spec Megane RS280.
