In this week’s Autocar we name the best-value performance cars in Britain and drive Aston Martin’s crucial new DB11: “one of the finest GT cars ever”.
We’ve also got the lowdown on Nissan’s radical EV concept, the BladeGlider, a potential Nürburgring lap record for the McLaren P1 LM and news of a hot Seat Ateca Cupra. There’s also first details of a fixed-roof version of the Fiat 124 Spider, and information about Hyundai’s N division plotting a Ford Focus RS rivalling i30 N.
As well as the DB11, we drive the new motorsport-inspired Caterham Seven 310R, which proves to be one of the best-balanced Sevens to date.
Our reviewers give the full road test treatment to the Porsche 718 Cayman S, and test two new BMW plug-in hybrids, the BMW 740Le xDrive and BMW i3 94Ah.
This week’s issue of Autocar is packed with some of 2016’s most significant new cars. Porsche’s four-cylinder 718 Boxster S faces one of the world’s best-handling sports cars, the Lotus Elise Cup 250, and the Bentley Bentayga is put under the microscope in a full Autocar road test.
We’ve also got a scoop on Alfa Romeo’s first SUV, the Stelvio, which will be launched next year in high-performance V6 guise to take on the Porsche Macan Turbo, and we reveal details on the two new MG SUVs destined to join the upcoming GS.
Plus, Ford factory racing drivers Marino Franchitti and Billy Johnson offer us some tips on tackling Spa in a Focus RS before we have a go ourselves, and we visit the recently revamped British Motor Museum to see what’s changed.
