11 September, 2019 | Last month, a prototype Bugatti took the title of one of the world’s fastest cars, and this month Lamborghini aims to prove it’s in the running with the brand’s first electrified car, and which goes beyond 350 km/h.
The fastest Lamborghini
In the hybrid V12 Sián by Automobili Lamborghini, the iconic Lamborghini V12 engine is coupled with an electric boost to create an unrivalled gem of engineering and technology characterised by Lamborghini DNA. Inspired by the Countach, the Sián has sharp lines, aerodynamic elegance and an unmistakable silhouette.
The Ferrari V12 Spider Returns
Exactly 50 years on from the debut of the last Spider in the Ferrari range to sport a front-mounted V12, the 812 GTS makes a triumphant return in the marque’s history since its foundation. The 812 GTS sets a new benchmark in terms of performance and exclusivity. Sporting Ferrari’s majestic 800 cv V12, the racer is not only one of the most powerful production Spiders on the market, but also the most versatile, thanks to its retractable hardtop which is a unique feature in this segment and guarantees a larger boot capacity.
A record-breaking Bugatti
According to Top Gear, Bugatti has smashed through the 300mph barrier. The Bugatti Chiron officially took the title of “the world’s fastest car” on 2 August 2019 when Andy Wallace hit a vmax of 304.77mph in a go-faster Chiron at Ehra-Lessien. Bugatti has since revealed that it will be manufacturing a similar version of the car that will exceed 300mph.
An updated Audi A5 range
The Audi A5 Sportback, A5 Coupé and A5 Cabriolet are moving into step with their close relatives in the A4 range with a new look, new mild hybrid drivetrains and the latest Multi Media Interface (MMI) touch operating concept. Another standard feature of the latest UK A5 models is the all-digital Audi virtual cockpit plus. Drivers can operate the 12.3-inch display with full HD resolution using the multifunction steering wheel with a choice of three views.
The new face of the BMW 4 range
The BMW Concept 4 was officially unveiled in Frankfurt at the 68th IAA Cars show. The BMW Concept 4 is set to display BMW’s signature proportions at their most modern form yet. “The BMW Concept 4 embodies the aesthetic essence of the BMW brand. It combines perfect proportions with a clear and precise design,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, senior vice president BMW Group Design.
