New Toyota GR Supra receives the Liberty Walk treatment

Japan is famed for its wild automotive scene, with drivers modifying cars you’d ordinarily find confined to the walls of a hermetically sealed garage. Liberty Walk is responsible for some of its most extreme creations, and it was only a matter of time before it applied its famous formula to Toyota’s all-new GR Supra.

Though it took longer than expected for a kit to emerge, it was most certainly worth the wait. Available in both glassfibre or lightweight carbonfibre, it leaves almost no exterior panel untouched; the bonnet, front splitter, side skirts, wing, diffuser, and of course, arches, have all been pumped to cartoonish levels.

986bhp Ferrari SF90 Stradale stars in C’était un Rendezvous recreation

Some were disappointed with the F8 Tributo upon its reveal at last year’s Geneva motor show, but behind closed doors Ferrari has also been working to bring something altogether more serious into series production. Set to sit above the 812 Superfast, the SF90 Stradale is a series-production £400k supercar boasting the brand’s very latest technology.

With a new mid-mounted 4-litre twin-turbo V8, combined with a trio of electric motors, a 986bhp output makes the all-new model the most powerful, fastest and most innovative series-production machine in Ferrari’s long and storied history.

2021 Lexus IS saloon revealed – aggressive new look for Japan’s 3-series rival

Lexus launched the original IS saloon back in 2001 as an aggressive attempt at rivalling the European compact executive saloon, typified by models such as the BMW 3-series. After three generations, the Lexus IS saloon has continued with varying degrees of success depending on the region, but Lexus is giving it another go in 2020 with this new model. Unfortunately, Europe has not been one of the markets the IS has cracked, so for the time being anyway, Lexus’s new IS saloon will not be available in the UK or Europe.

There’s more to the new IS than it just being another non-EU Lexus model though, as Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda’s continued efforts to create dynamic and interesting cars has not been forgotten with this extremely comprehensive update. It’s the first Lexus model engineered with a new development philosophy and the utilisation of Toyota’s enormous new Shimoyama testing facility

Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 receives exposed carbon fibre finish

Birthday cakes are all well and good, but how about a supercar made to honour your special day? Well, that’s exactly what Donkervoort has done, celebrating company founder Joop Donkervoort’s 70th birthday with the limited-run JD70, an evolution of its successful D8 GTO range.

Though it features all of the special-edition branding you’d expect, tweaks don’t stop there. An entirely new carbonfibre body adds 80kg of downforce at the rear and 50kg at the front over previous models, allowing it to achieve a rather ridiculous 2 Gs of lateral acceleration, even on its standard road-legal semi-slick tyres – that’s on a par with the £750k-plus McLaren Senna.
