It’s a deeply satisfying car to drive
This is Ferrari's, um, compact GT, variously described by the company's marketing people as 'an F1 car in evening attire' and a 2020 reboot for that ineffably Italian idea of la dolce vita. Now, you might surmise that Ferrari has
More than good enough for us
It's the Continental GT V8. It is, in essence, the entry-level Bentley Continental, priced as it is from around £150,000 (around P9.44 million), a whole £11,000 (P692,000) less than the big-boy W12 while being nearly

The Italian carmaker has had a busy 2019
We suspect Ferrari is pretty desperate to put its feet up over Christmas, because 2019 has been a busy one: Evidence of some speed in Formula 1 and five new road cars, namely, the F8 Tributo, the F8 Tributo Spider, the SF90
“Its character is allowed to shine through its civility”
Think of the GTC4Lusso as Ferrari's SUV. Well, can you think of a more pertinent answer to the sport-utility vehicle conundrum? Four seats, four-wheel drive, and all without the 'benefit' of sitting four feet higher in the air. However,
Two extra doors and bigger storage room yield a better GT than the regular 8
The BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe is the latest car to join the increasingly well-populated sector that lies somewhere between sedans and coupes. Up until the Mercedes CLS first arrived-way back in 2004, just to make you feel wistful about
There's more to the newest Ferrari than a beautiful body
We'll only know whether the Roma is a realistic daily driver once we, er, drive it, but all the signs are this is a GT cocked more toward the aggressive Aston Martin V8 Vantage than the floaty DB11. For starters, it'
It is a symbol of the future
After 12 years in production and some 40,000 cars sold, the Maserati GranTurismo is finally being put out to pasture, giving the company time and space to concentrate on renovations to its Modena plant and development of its next "high-performance
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
Old meets new
Remastering, remixing, reimagining: Call it what you want, but revisiting the past and giving it the benefit of the 'now' is big business. Hot on the heels of the announcement about his post-Jaguar third act, Ian Callum's new operation has
All-wheel steering, rear-biased AWD, and 626bhp. Chauffeurs will be very happy
Does a limo need to be good to drive? Bentley certainly seems to think so. This is the new Flying Spur, and it's had heaps of driver-focused tech thrown at it to ensure it's the company's deftest luxury
There’s even a machine-washable M Performance car cover
BMW doesn't pause for breath. Moment after the unveiling of its new M8 Competition comes the release of numerous aftermarket M Performance extras. And confirmation that the base M8 will have 592hp. Yeah, the M Division does strong base cars.Now,
It’s got four-wheel steering, rear-biased drive, and Dynamic Ride suspension
This is the new Bentley Flying Spur. Well, the second photo below is an annoyingly cropped-in section of the new Bentley Flying Spur. But it sounds very much like the most interesting section.That's because the Flying Spur now has
One’s based on the Revero, the other’s a Pininfarina-designed concept
Karma Automotive has shown off three brand-new cars at this year's Auto Shanghai show. One's a mad, scissor-doored roofless electric hypercar, while two are electric GT cars. Both of those, you will note, are rather attractive.Let's

Charged, not combusted
The James Bond character might seem like an immortal super spy who has somehow survived over 50 years without aging or showing signs of liver damage, but the truth is that the man and the franchise have evolved over the years. I
Bring it on
Fancy a mid-engined supercar but want more practicality and luxury? Fancy a front-engined GT but want a better drive and less weight? McLaren reckons you might well do, and will soon have you covered.A new McLaren GT is coming.
