Aston Martin DBX drift mode: "Never say never"

Speaking exclusively to CarAdvice, Aston Martin senior manager of vehicle dynamics, Ian Hartley, suggested the brand is looking into implementing a feature like drift mode to give the DBX a competitive edge. "It's not a difficult question really," he said, asked about drift mode for the DBX.

Audi R8 LMS GT2 debuts in Goodwood

Audi Sport has revealed its latest racer at the Goodwood Festival of Speed – the R8 LMS GT2. Following the R8 LMS GT3 revealed at last year’s Paris motor show, the R8 LMS GT2 is the most powerful vehicle ever created for the company’s customer racing program. Powered by a version of the naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine that powers the R8 road car, the R8 LMS GT2 develops a meaty 470kW (640hp) – up from the GT3 model’s 430kW – and “more than” 550Nm.

De Tomaso P72 unveiled

The De Tomaso P72 has been unveiled at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Although the new car has been named in honour of the 1965 P70 racing car, the P72 has a modern carbon-fibre chassis borrowed from the Apollo IE. Both Apollo and De Tomaso were brought together under common ownership in 2014. The company says the P72's design "focuses on [bringing the] timeless beauty and timeless proportions of the ’60s Le Mans prototype vehicles into the modern era".
