2017 Audi A5 TFSI quattro v Lexus RC200t comparison

The Audi A5 TFSI and Lexus RC200t are to cars what wrestling is to boxing. They look like the real thing from a distance, but in actual fact they're softer versions of their respective performance siblings, the RS5 and RC F. But, is that such a bad thing? Wrestling has millions of fans worldwide and to most people, it's pretty much the same thing as any other type of fighting...

‘Sports’ car sales plummet in October

Sales of dedicated sports cars fell off a cliff last month, with industry database VFACTS recording a 23.6 per cent drop over the same month in 2014. This statistic is a significant outlier, given sports car sales as a whole are down by a comparatively modest 3.8 per cent for the year so far. Naturally, the concept of a ‘sports car’ is a slippery one...
