The sDrive20i is P1.8 million less expensive than the range-topping M40i
It's the cheapest one. This is the Z4 sDrive20i, priced at P3.99 million, undercutting the full-fat M40i by P1.8 million and its Toyota Supra half cousin by P1 million. So it should, given it uses a titchy 2.
The discerning man’s M3, capable of hitting up to 303kph
Just over a month after it set our hearts ablaze by unveiling the 300kph B3 Touring, Alpina has done it again with the sedan version. And the good news doesn't stop there, because although the sedan might not have the dog-
Mk8 model gets high-tech interior and mild-hybrid setup
The ID. 3 hasn't taken over just yet-the Golf is still, and will probably remain for years to come, the ubiquitous Volkswagen. Still the answer we'll give pretty much anyone when they ask us what new car they ought
Check out those stripes
This is the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Sports Cup Edition. A special edition that kinda sounds like it's been named by someone who doesn't really know much about cars, a person who's wildly plucked some performance-y words out
The 2-Series Gran Coupe is setting its sights on the Merc CLA
What the flaming heck is a BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe, we hear you ask? Well, BMW has been curiously slow to break into the hatchback-based coupe-ish-sedan niche. It ran away with the coupe-SUV idea by perpetrating the
And is priced considerably lower than the ‘Turbo’ variants
Hurrah! It's a Porsche Taycan with a much more affordable price tag. Savage depreciation already? Nope: Meet the Taycan 4S and yup, it's not wearing any Turbo misnomers like its pricier stablemates.It still has twin motors, one on each
A South African special from the ’70s
Not just cool, but rare, too. This is the only car that remains from a very limited run of 530 'MLE' special-edition cars built by BMW South Africa in the mid '70s. BMW found it and restored it, and now you
We miss this car
A new Volkswagen Golf. That's pretty big news, even in this world where the ID.3 is looking to take over from its fossil-fuelled brother as the answer to all 'what car should I buy' quandaries.You already know, of
This is the future of performance cars
This is Porsche's first all-electric car, previewed by the Mission E concept way back in 2015. A car we're expecting to re-write the rule book on what an EV is capable of. A torch-bearer for the future
BMW calls it a 4 + 1-seater
Puh-lease. In BMW language, a GC is a four-door coupe-ish thing-in this case, a version of the ritzy 8-Series Coupe, with added doors. It's not just some lazy stretch job. Every exterior panel is different aft
It has clocked in just over 35,000km
These days, even the base-spec Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes crammed full of tech and will set you back around £75,000 (around P4.82 million). Granted, it's a very good car-the best in its class, even-but we
And an ‘electric overboost’ function
As of November, the ubiquitous BMW 520d is set to get a new mild-hybrid system. The setup comprises a 48V starter-generator and a second battery, and BMW says the additional power harvested will be used to power ancillaries and for
It's sensational
A contradiction. It's the humblest Porsche Cayenne Coupe. Not the Cayenne S Coupe, nor the Cayenne Turbo S Coupe e-Hybrid Coupe S Turbo-ey-turbo S thingy.Just Cayenne Coupe. Sportiest Cayenne body style (20mm lower, 18mm wider at the
Because someone had to do it
BMW M is too chicken to take on the Audi RS4 Avant and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate. It says that people who desire fast middle-sized BMWs with space for brave pets buy the X3M instead. It says there's no
Meet the latest iteration of the 911 Carrera 4
Is the new Porsche 911, with its massive tires, mountain of torque, peerless automatic gearbox, and many driving assistants, still too tricky for you?Then step this way, into the new Porsche 911 Carrera 4. The entry-level, less-powerful 911, now
A cross between an off-roader and a moon buggy
Audi hasn't just brought the RS6 and RS7 to this week's Frankfurt Motor Show-this weird-looking off-road thing is on display too.It's called the AI:Trail, and it's the fourth car in Audi's series
Non-wagon fans, this one is for you
Super-sedans? Audi doesn't do super-sedans. No simple 'sedan' rivals to the likes of the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-AMG E63 for Audi. It does four-door coupes instead. And this is the new one: the Audi RS7 Sportback.
It's officially called the BMW Concept 4
We get that BMW's new concept grille wears a lot of history-328 coupe, 3.0 CSI-but does it have to wear all the history?Because if this new Concept 4's nose was any longer, any wider, it'd
About as minimal as brands get
So this is the Volkswagen logo's new look: simple, clean, and similar to the last one. It was unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show and marks the beginning of new era for the company.In its statement, the company
It can do 0-100kph in 3.8sec
Mercedes-Benz's twin-turbocharged V12 engine is dying. After the limited-run S65 Final Edition, you won't be able to get it in an S-Class, and of course the ridiculous G65 was canned with the arrival of the all-
