2016 Goodwood Revival

Jan 22nd
The Goodwood Revival returned to Sussex this weekend for three days of vintage racing. Autocar's Steve Cropley was on hand to soak up the atmosphere - read his thoughts below. Scroll to the bottom to watch a repeat highlights video. Well, it started fine and ended fine, but it was distinctly damp in the middle.  It is often presumed that…

BMW I8

Jan 22nd
BMW is set to give the i8 more power, an extended range, various chassis tweaks, an inductive charging option and a series of new lightweight components. The changes are part of a comprehensive midlife facelift for the high-tech 2+2, which first went on sale in the UK in 2014. The facelifted i8 is due to reach showrooms in the final…
Audi 'R4' E-tron: Full Details

Jan 21st
Audi’s latest e-tron concept is the strongest hint yet at the firm’s intentions to build a smaller, lighter sports car known as R4. The new two-seater has the same name as the bigger, more powerful concept car revealed at last year’s Frankfurt motor show and driven by Autocar last month. However, this car is significantly smaller and, uncharacteristically for an…
BMW M235i

Jan 21st
There’s a memorable episode of Alan Partridge where the eponymous radio show host becomes increasingly exasperated by a Liverpudlian named Tex (Terry) who gets his Dr Pepper from the cooler, manworships John Wayne and calls his lone pick-up truck ‘Convoy’. For the past half a century, buying a Ford Mustang in this country has come with the same Route 66…
2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

2016 Lexus GS F

Jan 21st
F is the scarlet letter we use to mark failure or scorn. Ironically, the opposite is the case in Japan, where anything associated with that symbol commands respect. Mount Fuji is worshipped as a natural wonder. Fuji International Speedway is Japan’s version of the Nürburgring. When Toyota planned its assault on the luxury-car business in the late 1980s, Circle F…
Porsche V8

Jan 21st
Porsche has revealed a new twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine which is set to power future incarnations of its Panamera Turbo and Cayenne Turbo models. Originally revealed by Autocar last year, the 4.0-litre unit, which was unveiled in a low-key presentation at the Vienna Motor Symposium, will also feature in other Volkswagen Group models from Audi, Bentley and Lamborghini. It forms part of a…
Smart Roadster Coupe

Jan 21st
We’ve already driven the Smart Roadster, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to pilot a right-hand-drive version of its sister Roadster-Coupé on UK roads. Besides, it seems the obvious choice for everyday use, what with a 189-litre boot (103 more than the Roadster) in addition to the 59-litre cubby in the nose. Although mechanically identical, the £1000-dearer Roadster-Coupé…
Mazda MX-5

Jan 21st
Honda is taking aim at the Mazda MX-5 and Fiat’s forthcoming 124 Spider by developing a successor to its popular S2000 roadster, company insiders have revealed. Introduced in 1999, the original version of the Japanese manufacturer’s two-seat roadster garnered a reputation for its strong powertrain and lively handling, but the second edition of the car was axed in 2009. Now…
2017 Acura MDX

Jan 21st
Just like that one friend on Facebook who keeps shuffling through myriad profile pictures, luxury-car companies are always introducing new front grilles. Acura, a brand that struggles with identity issues, is the latest to do so, just as we were starting to get used to its previous design, an inelegant shield most commonly referred to as a beak. The three-row…
