Aston Martin DB11 V8: Creating the sound

For the first time in nearly fifty years, there’s a V8 engine under the bonnet of an Aston Martin DB-badged car. Only, this one isn’t an in-house build - it’s sourced from AMG, the hot-rod division of Mercedes-Benz. It’s essentially the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 out of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S and others, though in the DB11 it produces 375kW of power and 675Nm of torque, whereas in the Benz, it develops the same power, but torque jumps to 700Nm.

Can’t afford a new 2018 BMW M5? Why not buy a carbon-fibre-infused M5-inspired bike?

That's right. Always keen to build affordable transportation for the masses to enjoy, BMW has revealed its latest special-edition BMW lifestyle bike, and it takes inspiration from the German marque’s brand-new super sedan. Catchily dubbed the BMW M Bike Limited Carbon Edition, the special new pushy is inspired by the all-new 441kW/750Nm 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8-powered 2018 BMW M5.

Volkswagen boss discusses I.D. electric car family

Volkswagen’s I.D. family of various mass-market electric cars - to enter production in 2020 at market-defining prices - will continue to grow, and run parallel to existing nameplates such as Golf, Tiguan and Passat. The company has so far previewed three EVs, headlined by the eponymous I.D. hatch concept that’ll enter production within three years, with a circa 600km range and priced the same as the next-generation Mk8 diesel Golf - which itself will premiere around the same time.
