Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

James Taylor, 17 December 2014 16:00

At the 2015 Detroit motor show in January Lexus will unveil a new high-performance F-badged model. It’ll be the second go-faster Lexus in the company’s current line-up, alongside the brawny 465bhp V8-powered RC F Coupe. What is it, then? It’s not a new-generation IS F, despite a handy performance car-shaped hole in the IS range to be filled. Whatever it ...

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

Honda has shown the new Acura NSX hybrid sports car in these restrictively photographed teaser images ahead of its debut at the 2015 Detroit motor show. Yes, yes - it’s another annoying teaser campaign. And it’s been a long gestation for the Honda NSX - the concept car was first shown in Motown back at the start of 2012. Two ...

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

James Taylor, 15 December 2014 10:00

Prefer your supercars tailored rather than off the peg? Aston Martin might have just the thing. To celebrate 60 years since Aston Martin production began at Newport Pagnell (the firm as a whole celebrated its centenary in 2013), six special versions of the Vanquish are being created, called, catchily, the Aston Martin Works 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Vanquish. With Aston ...

Audi Q7 (2015) unveiled: smaller, lighter and more estate-like

Rated 3 out of 53

Tim Pollard, 12 December 2014 17:00

Audi has unveiled the new second-generation Q7, bringing a dose of modesty to its hulking full-fat SUV. The 2015 Audi Q7 has less of everything: less visual heft, with a dose of large estate styling according to some at CAR, less weight and lower emissions. There are numerous tech firsts for Audi, such as its first Quattro diesel plug-in hybrid ...

Infiniti Q60 concept for 2015 Detroit show

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

James Taylor, 12 December 2014 05:00

Infiniti will unveil a show car at the Detroit motor show in January 2015 called the Q60 Concept. Billed as a ‘premium sports coupe concept’, a logical assumption could be that it’s a forerunner to a replacement for the existing Q60 Coupe, formerly known as the G37 Coupe and rebadged as part of the company’s naming structure shuffle some months ...

Audi RS3 Sportback (2015): Audi’s 362bhp superhatch revealed

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

James Taylor, 11 December 2014 23:01

If ever there were an illustration of just how serious the hot hatch horsepower arms race is getting, the new Audi RS3 fits the bill nicely. Because its five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine develops no less than 362bhp. That’s quite a lot from 2.5 litres, not to mention quite a lot for a five-door hatchback (hence the Sportback label). Audi RS3 Sportback (2015): the ...

Mini John Cooper Works (2015): meet the most powerful Mini

Rated 4 out of 54

James Taylor, 11 December 2014 12:48

You’re looking at the most powerful production Mini ever made: the 2015 Mini John Cooper Works. Behind that mess of mesh grilles is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-pot with 228bhp and 236lb ft, a 10% power hike and a 23% torque increase over the outgoing JCW. Line the two cars up for a drag race and the new one will scorch ...

BMW 6-series and M6 get a (mild) facelift for 2015

Rated 3 out of 53

James Taylor, 11 December 2014 10:30

It’s unusual for BMW to renew a whole model series in one go, but that’s exactly what it’s about to do: these are the first official pictures of the updated BMW 6-series, 6-series Convertible and 6-series Gran Coupe, with the new M6 thrown in for good measure. Has anything actually changed? It’s not the most radical of facelifts, granted. New ...

Hyundai i20 Coupe (2015): how to make the i20 more interesting

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

James Taylor, 10 December 2014 12:40

This is the new three-door version of the Hyundai i20, set to go on sale in spring 2015. It’s optimistically called the Hyundai i20 Coupe, and although it’s fair to say it’s not a coupe in the true sense of the word it’s nonetheless been given some jazzier design treatment to differentiate it from the five-door i20 hatch. Hyundai i20 ...
