Tim Pollard, 29 August 2014 08:13

Aston Martin’s wedgy new Lagonda super-saloon was flown to Oman for testing this week, affording us this fresh look at the Middle East-only four-door. Oman Air publicised its role in transporting this prototype out to Muscat ‘as part of its early testing programme.’ We hope it travelled first class; the Lagonda will only be offered on sale to its wealthiest ...

Icon Helios: the Tesla Model S streamliner inspired by DC-1s

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 01 August 2014 07:04

US craft modders Icon have come up with an unusual take on the electric car: the new Icon Helios is a dramatically rebodied Tesla Model S inspired by streamliners and ‘30s aircraft. Better known for modifying Land Rovers and Jeeps, Icon CEO and lead designer Jonathan Ward has now turned his hand to a more futuristic idea - making electric ...

Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II (2014) first official pictures

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Ben Pulman, 04 March 2014 10:30

Rolls-Royce doesn’t facelift or revise its models quite like the rest of the world’s car manufacturers. Instead, mere mortal, you’re looking at the Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, and the company claims, quite seriously, that the launch of this revised über-saloon ‘consolidates the Ghost’s position as the most popular car in the €200,000+ class.’ And in case you’re not feeling suitably ...

Bentley Flying Spur V8 (2014) first official pictures

Rated 3 out of 53

Ollie Kew, 25 February 2014 14:00

This is the politically correct Bentley Flying Spur. No really – the Flying Spur V8 has a downsized engine: a twin-turbo V8 rather than the existing car’s bi-turbo W12. It’ll be revealed at the 2014 Geneva motor show, along with a boosted Continental GT Speed model mustering even more power for 2014. Bentley Flying Spur V8: the details No surprises ...

Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Spec (2014) first official pictures

Rated 2 out of 52

Ollie Kew, 08 January 2014 14:00

The Rolls-Royce Ghost V-spec has been unveiled as the brand’s new performance model. Strictly, it’s not a powered-up, hard-core model in the vein of, say, a Nissan Skyline V-Spec (though wouldn’t that be wonderful?), but a special edition to celebrate the Ghost’s fifth birthday. So don’t expect to see this Ghost hauling itself around the Nurburgring Nordschleife in the near ...

Mercedes S65 AMG (2013) first official pictures

Rated 3 out of 53

Ollie Kew, 08 November 2013 08:01

Bring on the ‘too much is never enough’ comments: this is the new Mercedes S65 AMG – the top dog of the S-class range. Set to be more than twice as expensive as an entry-level S350 BlueTec, which starts at £62k, the S65 AMG borrows its powerplant from the SL65 AMG, and comes close to embarrassing the SLS supercar in ...

Porsche Panamera Turbo S (2013) pictures, specs, and price

Rated 2 out of 52

Ollie Kew, 01 November 2013 11:00

Four years after hitting the showrooms, Porsche’s love-or-loathe it Panamera limousine is still trying to outrun jibes about its controversial looks. If any model stands a chance, it’s the new Panamera Turbo S, which has received a healthy power increase for its facelifted iteration. What new hardware does the new Porsche Panamera Turbo S get? The new Panamera Turbo S ...

Range Rover long-wheelbase (2013) first official pictures

Rated 1.5 out of 51.5

Ollie Kew, 28 October 2013 00:01

A limousine off-roader that’s not a tarted-up stretch Hummer? Meet the new Range Rover long-wheelbase, which Land Rover is aiming squarely at the elongated versions of its luxury saloon rivals, like the Mercedes S-class, Audi A8, and Jaguar XJ. On sale in the UK in March 2014, the Range Rover long-wheelbase is expected to cost around £140,000 – twice the ...

Porsche Panamera Diesel gets power boost for 2014

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Ollie Kew, 02 September 2013 13:15

An updated Porsche Panamera Diesel was missing from the range when Porsche facelifted its plus-size super-saloon earlier in 2013. But don’t think Porsche had quietly dropped the most anti-purist model in its line-up. Stuttgart has in fact been tickling up a much more powerful, faster version of the oil-burning Panamera. Check out the figures below and tell us if you’d ...

Audi A8 (2014) at Frankfurt motor show

Rated 3 out of 53

Jordan Bishop, 21 August 2013 17:54

In the wake of an all-new Mercedes S-class, the facelifted Audi A8 will be shown at Frankfurt motor show as the luxury saloon celebrates its twentieth birthday. The A8’s body has been given a nip and tuck, with more power and improved fuel efficiency, too, as it battles the new S-class and the BMW 7-series. >> Click here for CAR's ...
