Audi A9 concept at 2014 LA motor show

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Tim Pollard, 14 October 2014 23:00

Don’t click away from another humdrum teaser photograph! This Audi concept car at the 2014 Los Angeles motor show is claimed to have real significance - it’s the first car to espouse ‘a new era of design’ at Audi. What, the end of the Audi jellymould? It seems so. We’ve bemoaned the homogenisation of Audi design in recent years; can ...

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

Tim Pollard, 07 September 2014 12:00

Aston Martin has issued these first official photographs of the Lagonda super-saloon hot weather testing in Oman. It’s a strange way to showcase this new sporting limousine, but we’re not complaining: it’s an intriguing glimpse of the new four-door created just for the Middle Eastern markets in a limited run, just like the One-77. If follows on from our earlier ...

Bristol Cars is back from the dead with today’s announcement of a new hybrid GT – dubbed Project Pinnacle – slated for launch in 2015. The news came at the suitably swanky Concours of Elegance in Hampton Court Palace, London.

Rated 4 out of 54

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 ...

BMW 7-series facelift (2012) first pictures

Rated 3 out of 53

Tim Pollard, 28 May 2012 10:21

BMW has given the 7-series the mildest of mid-life facelifts for 2012 – with a series of cosmetic tidy-ups, fettled engines, extra kit and the UK's first hybrid 7-series. The ActiveHybrid7 isn't the most expensive 7-series (that's the 760Li at £101,805), but at £66,040 the petrol-electric saloon is some £8k pricier than the biggest-selling 730d. As the diesel is also ...

Porsche has ramped up an even hotter version of its Panamera ugly duckling at the 2011 Los Angeles auto show. The new 2011 Panamera GTS made its world debut at LA, and will arrive at UK dealerships in February 2012 costing a stout £90,409. What makes the Panamera a GTS? That'll be a 30 horsepower upgrade to the 4.8-litre naturally ...

Rated 2 out of 52

When does a Rolls-Royce Ghost become a Phantom rival? When you add 170mm to the wheelbase and launch the Ghost Extended Wheelbase. At 5569mm long, the LWB Ghost is still comfortably shorter than the 5834mm regular Rolls Phantom (the stretched Phantom soars beyond six metres!). The Ghost LWB was launched today at the 2011 Shanghai auto show. Rolls will only ...
