“Classier than ever, while still possessing a wicked sense of fun”
The proceeds will go towards good causes
You might have caught the news that the very first mid-engined C8 Corvette recently sold for the rather hefty sum of $ 3million (around P153.13 million). The 'Vette crossed the block for charity at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, though it
Which one do you prefer
In the red corner, the original Jaguar F-Type-wide-eyed, a cat-like 'fang' bookending the front bumper, marginally feral appearance. Spot-on.And now, in the blue corner, the new F-Type-lower, narrower lights, and a lower, longer-reaching
The facelift comes courtesy of Jaguar’s new design director
Oh, how we don't envy Jaguar's new design director, Julian Thomson. Improving anything styled by Ian Callum would be difficult at the best of times, but the F-Type-in coupe form, especially-was already a fantastic-looking thing.Welcome,
V8 up front, drive at the back, sky all around
Well, that's a tonic for the senses, isn't it? This is the production version of a car we first saw at the start of the year. It's the Lexus LC500 Convertible, and it's quite lovely indeed. One might
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.
It’s 20kg lighter and 50hp more powerful than the 488 droptop
What the Ferrari F8 Tributo does, rather cleverly, is fuse the feral 711hp twin-turbo V8 engine of the Ferrari 488 Pista with an updated version of the 488 GTB's more comfortable chassis.And now, you can combine those ingredients with
Meet the Volante version of Aston’s V12 coupe
A very long silly name, but you probably won't care when you tuck into the spec of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante. This is the ultimate open Aston, and may be forevermore, unless someone with a Valkyrie fires it under
This premium convertible is based on the Jag F-Type R and makes 666hp
Ladies and gentlemen, prepare your ears: The Lister LFT-C is here.As you can probably tell, it's a convertible version of the brilliantly bonkers LFT-666, which is based on the Jaguar F-Type R and was introduced in August
We second the motion
At this year's Detroit Motor Show, Lexus gave us the LC Convertible-a gorgeous droptop version of its rather likeable V8-engined grand tourer.Sadly, it was just a concept. But, at this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed, all is
Two bubble-backed 911 specials with shared DNA but different attitudes
A pair of open Porsche 911s wouldn't ordinarily be the enthusiast's choice. But these are no ordinary open 911s. These are 911 Speedsters, and that makes them a purer, more athletic breed than your average Stuttgart tanning bed.Below, on
That’s more like it
Ever since the Boxster and the Cayman traded their flat-sixes for four-pots, roughly everyone with functioning ears has clamored for a return to the proper cylinder count. Here in TG Towers, we've been particularly clamorous, even using phrases like "
We've been dying to know
Ne'er before have two cars been mentioned in the same breath more often. Supra and Z4, or 'Zupra' if you ask the wittier corners of the Top Gear office. We all know the story by now: Toyota wanted to revive the
It’s the M Division’s “first foray into the world of luxury motoring”
After what feels like a millions teasers, the BMW M8 is finally here. And it's arrived at once in full-strength Competition form, possessing a mighty 616hp and a frankly ludicrous 3.2sec 0-100kph time. Not to mention a 304kph
“This feels like a cruiser first and foremost”
A bit rude. But partially correct. See the two together and Toyota has certainly made the proportions of the shared chassis underpinning the Supra and the Z4 work far more favorably to human eyes. The Z4's nicer in the metal than
The 991’s last hurrah
Very well spotted. The new 992-generation Porsche 911 may currently be melting our expectations of how well-rounded a sports car can be, but the outgoing 991-gen hasn't quite retired yet. This 911 Speedster is its spectacular send-off-
The engineers found a way
Porsche launched the 911 Speedster this week, effectively a swan song for the old-gen 911 and with the 991.2 GT3's howling 4.0-liter flat-six sitting pride of place in its rump.It's a stupendous engine, revving
These chopped-down, open-air Porsches have existed for over 60 years
It all came about when Porsche's American importer convinced the Germans there was a market for an open, stripped-out model costing less than $3,000. And so in 1954, the 356 Speedster was born. It had the same body as
The asking price: £211,599, or around P14.4 million before taxes
After months of concepts and teasers, the Porsche 911 Speedster is finally here. And it costs £211,599 (around P14.4 million). A whole £100,000 (around P6.78 million) more than the 911 GT3 upon which it's based.And the
Meet the DBS Superleggera Volante
Surprise! Aston Martin has made an attractive car. Yeah, big shock, we know. Welcome to the shiny new DBS Superleggera Volante, a rather convoluted nomenclature that can be condensed to 'Pretty Car.'Yep, Aston's done it again. Sure, there are facts
“There’s no getting away from the fact that it’s spectacularly well-engineered”
The new 992-generation Porsche 911, with a folding fabric roof that retracts in 12sec. It is, to be honest, a pretty known quantity in the car world. Porsche builds eleventy thousand versions of each 911-roofless ones, lighter ones, faster ones.
