With none other than the carmaker’s GT division boss

As well as that S-Class-style interior
Over the past 10 years, Mercedes-Benz has sold more C-Classes than any other model. This is very good news: Sedans-and wagons-are far from dead yet. And while we're on the subject of good news, there's now
Now’s your chance to own one
Safari-style Porsches are nothing new. In fact, we've featured quite a few of them on Top Gear Philippines already. Rugged, versatile, and packing performance only Stuttgart can deliver, it's not hard to envision why countless enthusiasts consider these babies

“We have decided to bring technology back to the lead”
Quattro. Aluminum bodies. TDi. Super-low-drag sedans. Audi had a habit of introducing world-beating engineering innovation. That gave the world the Ur-Quattro and A2 and R8. But then it sort of...stopped. And turned into a brand that was
“The idea is that there’s no change in the engine necessary”
There's a new Porsche 911 GT3. And as ever, it uses a flat-six engine free of turbochargers and able to sing its way to 9,000rpm. As naturally aspirated sports cars drop like flies around it-even within the Porsche
Wilder inside and out
Petrolheads, assemble: It's a new Porsche 911 GT3. Which is basically like saying, "It's a new Bowie album" to the music nerds. This is benchmark sports car, the one by which the steering feel, chassis composure, and engine response of
“I’d have sworn it was a rear-drive 911 Carrera”
Interesting car, this: the £70,690 (P4.63 million) baby Porsche Taycan. It's the only flavor of Porsche's electric fastback with no extra letters or words after its name-no '4S' or 'Turbo' topper. This is as basic as the
Then proceeds to undo its good work with that livery
The BMW M2 CS was one of 2020's stand-out performance cars. The boffins at the M Division gave it more power (444hp, to be precise) and more focus than the already brilliant M2 Competition, and BMW plonked on a hefty £
Up to P2.09-M off
Auto Nation Group, Mercedes-Benz's official Philippine distributor, is making its cars easier to buy in celebration of Chinese New Year 2021.To ring in the Year of the Ox, the German luxury car manufacturer is slashing the prices of a
It was called the CityStromer, and lasted for three generations
Volkswagen has been doing electric cars since the early '70s. Its first was a T2 Transporter with a whopping 850kg lead-acid battery pack, around 48-80km of range, and a 22hp motor for 0-50kph (its top speed was only 74kph)
It’s almost 30hp up on the standard engine
Mercedes-Benz likes to make a rather large song and dance about the fact that the 415hp A45 S utilizes the most powerful four-cylinder engine in mainstream production. It's an incredible unit which you can read all about by clicking
And yep, it’s wearing neon eyeliner
The fastest and most powerful BMW M production car ever. Given what's in the back catalog, that is quite the statement.But then the new BMW M5 CS looks and sounds like quite the super sedan. Following on from the hard-
Based on the 718 Boxster GTS 4.0
The Porsche Boxster is 25 years old in 2021. As if this year hadn't been taxing enough already, we're now feeling positively ancient.It was a crucial car, too. It basically saved the company upon arrival in the mid-'90s.
Powered by eight CPU cores and 24 gigs of RAM
It's not long now before Mercedes-Benz reveals its all-electric flagship, the hugely significant EQS. So here's something to whet your appetite-the slippery sedan's entirely digital dashboard.The curved glass panel houses Merc's new so-called '

Almost two decades on, it’s still one of the best M models ever made
Coupe, sport, lightweight. BMW has only applied the CSL badge to two cars in its history: the 3.0 CSL, a homologation hero nicknamed The Batmobile, and this oh-so-delicately styled special edition of the E46 BMW M3, introduced in 2003.
“It gets more and more spectacular as your confidence soars”
Is this the prettiest generation of Porsche 911? Much of the Top Gear office would argue it is. The classic nine-eleven silhouette-still with relatively dainty proportions-draped with subtle detailing. No fried-egg shapes or stark LED patterns for the
“99% of the experience for about 85% of the cost”
We've had a few of them this year, headline billing going to the Porsche 911 Turbo S that scooped our Performance Car of the Year award after a grueling few days of lapping Anglesey. Such hardship.But it's worth noting,
