Bugatti: W16 engine 'the last of its kind', considering hybrid future

The quad-turbocharged 1103kW W16 engine powering the Bugatti Chiron, and now also the Divo, will likely be regarded as the pinnacle of internal combustion outputs by future generations. It will also be the last of its kind. Power outputs for the monster mill have grown steadily since it was introduced in the Veyron 13 years ago, and may well expand further, but Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed it won't be replaced once its time is up.

VFACTS August: Alfa Romeo, Infiniti and Volvo defy luxury slump

Three smaller challengers to the perennial German luxury leaders all grew in a cooling luxury market in August, with Alfa Romeo, Infiniti and Volvo all posting meaningful increases over their 2017 results. We'll start with Volvo, which shifted 689 cars and held a 0.7 per cent market share, for 83.7 per cent growth over the same month last year. The XC40 was its best-seller with 266 registrations, followed by the XC60 (252) and XC90 (108).

VFACTS: Small SUV sales boom detailed

Small SUVs, high-riding hatchbacks, little crossovers. Not matter what you call them, sales in this part of the market are absolutely booming, pinching sales from the depleting Small Car and Light Car segments. While the overall new vehicle market has cooled by 0.3% over last year’s record (to the end of August), sales in the ‘Small SUV’ segment have leapt up by almost 25%, to 93,415 units.

Lexus LY650 unveiled

Lexus has unveiled its 'fourth flagship' and, well, it's not quite what we expected. The LY650 is based on the Lexus Sport Yacht concept from 2017, taking the brand's design ethos and giving it a distinctly nautical bent. The company says the ship's strong bow, broad hips, flowing roof line, and curved deck accents accurately move the company's L-finesse design theme from the road to the water.
