Alfa Romeo’s latest halo car, the 33 Stadale, has been unveiled in the UK for the first time at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed. The car is yet to be finalised, although first customer deliveries will take place in December 2024.  One of the customers is none other than Valterri Bottas - not a huge surprise given the Formula One driver helped Alfa Romeo develop the 33 Stradale. Of the limited production run of 33 units, each with a price tag in the region of £2.8m, all have been sold and we’ve b...

Petrolheads, billionaires and billionaire petrolheads, behold the Red Bull RB17 hypercar. From the mind of legendary F1 designer and engineer Adrian Newey, this track-only, V10-powered apex-predator makes zero compromises on its mission to deliver F1 levels of performance. The RB17 made its world debut at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed and is powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.5-litre V10 engine that delivers more than 1,000bhp and has a redline of 15,000rpm. That’s on par with the most ...
New Red Bull RB17 hypercar revealed with a 15,000rpm V10 engine

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 coupe has just been given a track-focused overhaul, its crosshairs now firmly locked on Porsche’s 911 GT3. The Pro version gets a range of technical enhancements to its cooling and aerodynamics, plus a touch more power than the standard Mercedes-AMG GT 63. The manufacturer is hoping that the upgrades might just attract customers looking for something that’s as at home on the track as it is on the road. Local UK prices have yet to be announced, but expect a starting pric...

1,888bhp Rimac Nevera 15th Anniversary Edition celebrates electric hypercar brand’s daring philos...
Rimac is celebrating 15 years of “achieving the impossible” with nine specially made examples of its record-breaking electric hypercar that’s been unimaginatively named the Rimac Nevera 15th Anniversary Edition. Every one of them will be finished in a new shade of copper, which is not only very on-trend, but marks the first use of matte paint on the Nevera. It’s contrasted by fully exposed gloss carbon fibre on the lower half of the car, and the complex circuit board-inspired pattern that run...

Unique Pagani Huayra Epitome has a 852bhp V12… and a manual gearbox!
Full respect to whichever billionaire decided they wanted their Pagani Huayra to feature a good old fashioned manual gearbox, because that idea and a whole lot of cash led to the creation of this: the truly one-of-one Pagani Huayra Epitome. The Huayra Epitome is the latest creation from Pagani’s special project division Grandi Complicazioni, which is responsible for limited-number speed machines like the Imola Roadster unveiled last year.

New Bentley Continental GT Speed on target for 25 June reveal
Bentley has announced a date for the reveal of the next Bentley Continental GT: 25 June 2024. The car will be revealed at 4pm on that day in high-performance Speed form and the car has already broken a rather unusual speed record in an undersea tunnel. Bentley says the new model will use its new ‘Ultra Performance Hybrid” powertrain with 771bhp and 1,000Nm of torque, derived from a V8 combustion engine and electric motors. It has also confirmed a 50-mile range on electric power alone and CO2 ...

New McLaren Artura Spider review: roofless hybrid supercar shows the brand at its best
Verdict The McLaren Artura Spider is a more desirable small hybrid supercar than the coupe, and a major improvement all-round due to a collection of changes across the board. The Artura Spider’s elements come together beautifully in an engaging, fast and charismatic package, one that feels distinctly McLaren and delivers tangible benefits with its new-age hybrid powertrain. The Artura was meant to be a new era for McLaren. New engine, new hybrid powertrain assistance and a heightened focus on...

Best American cars of all time - Ford GT40
Commissioned with the help of Eric Broadley, the owner and design guru of successful English racing car builder Lola Cars, the legendary Ford GT40 was developed purely to beat Ferrari in sports car races. The two brands weren’t natural competitors, but Enzo Ferrari famously upset Henry Ford II after unilaterally pulling out of talks about a possible takeover of Ferrari. Ford had already spent a fortune on putting the deal together, and wasn’t a happy bunny. Determined to humiliate the Italian...

New 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray storms in with 646bhp hybrid V8
The Corvette has traded on its traditional petrol-fuelled thrills for decades, but in 2023, Chevrolet is riding the wave of electrification to bring us this: the Corvette E-Ray. The C8 model's LT2 V8 remains, but thanks to a front-mounted electric motor, the E-Ray is the first-ever four-wheel drive Corvette, and one of the quickest. The electric motor and 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 provide 646bhp in total - falling slightly short of the C8 Z06 model on power and, indeed, the monstrous ...

New McLaren Artura 2023 review
Verdict The McLaren Artura offers simply sublime ride and handling. However, while the powertrain is good, it’s not great; effective and punchy, but still lacking a little refinement and finesse, it seems. It’s a small issue that can’t take the shine off an otherwise deeply impressive piece of engineering that evolves what McLaren stands for when it comes to tech and design. You’d buy the £189,200 McLaren Artura for its steering alone. Never mind its punchy powertrain, beautifully refined ri...

New Porsche 911 Dakar 2023 review
Verdict Expensive but already sold out, not very comfortable and thoroughly impractical it might well be, but in the right circumstances the 911 Dakar is fantastic, even if it is ultimately just a toy for the mega-rich. It gives the road-going 911 a dimension to its personality that we’ve not yet experienced, with genuinely surprising off-road ability that puts fun at the core of the driving experience; finding the location to experience this might be the issue for some owners. However, if we...

Lamborghini Invencible coupe and Auténtica roadster bid farewell to the V12
Perhaps no other supercar maker can stretch out a car’s lifespan like Lamborghini. The final instalments in the Aventador series have now been revealed as the Invencible coupe and Auténtica roadster. The Aventador was launched way back in 2011, featuring the second-generation version of Lamborghini’s legendary V12. Lamborghini says the two new bespoke cars will be the last equipped with the V12, thanks to the imminent arrival of the Aventador’s replacement in the next few weeks. SEE MORE Be...

New 2024 Ferrari hypercar hits the road: V12 swapped for smaller hybrid engine
As Ferrari enters the era of electrification, development of the firm’s next flagship hypercar is in full swing - as revealed by a newly released video of the car testing on public roads. With a bloodline that includes the legendary F40, Enzo and most recently the LaFerrari, the new model will ditch V12 power in favour of a smaller hybrid engine. At a Capital Markets Day presentation last year, Ferrari confirmed that its forthcoming hybrid offerings will be fitted with either V6 or V8 combus...

New Ferrari Purosangue 2023 review
Verdict Brash, thirsty, barkingly expensive and not very well packaged it might be, but the Purosangue is also one of the most exciting four-door, four-seat cars ever. It sets new standards for a vehicle of this type, offering the pace and dynamic clarity of a full-blown supercar car on one hand (well, almost) with much of an SUV’s practicality on the other. Not that it’s an SUV, of course. It’s the car they said they’d never make at Maranello. Yet here it is, Ferrari’s brand-new SUV – all 71...
