New Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo spied ahead of 2020 launch

Porsche CEO Oliver Blume confirmed the production of the Taycan Cross Turismo in early 2019, following the launch of the concept at 2018’s Geneva motor show. Now, ahead of its scheduled reveal later this year, spy photographers have spotted the model testing in Germany. 

Similar in concept to the Panamera Sport Turismo, the Taycan Cross Turismo will be more of a lifestyle estate than a traditional family holdall. While no specification has been confirmed at the time of writing, expect it to be closer to that of a crossover in concept than a full SUV.

Jaguar I-Pace updated for 2021

The all-electric Jaguar I-Pace has been given a subtle update for the 2021 model year, with a selection of tech and charging hardware updates to keep it competitive against the wave of rivals from all corners of the marketplace.

The changes have been focused on improving the user experience, starting with a new infotainment interface slipped within the same 10.25-inch touchscreen display. As before, this main touchscreen is paired with the smaller five-inch display below now familiar from other models in the Jaguar Land Rover range, plus a standard-fit 12.3-inch active driver display.

Lotus Exige 20th Anniversary pays homage to the original

The very first Exige rolled out of Hethel’s gates two decades ago, and so to celebrate, Lotus has launched a special edition complete with more standard kit, and design elements referencing the Series 1. Prices start from £79,900 and deliveries are expected to begin later this year.

Unlike the standard car, the 20th Anniversary adopts a body-coloured wing, roof and side air intakes as a nod to the model that started it all. A unique 20th Anniversary silhouette logo can also be found on the front wings, at the rear and inside, outlining the design of the first Exige. Also new to the special edition is the Series 1-inspired ‘shark fin’ stone protector ahead of the rear wheels and a ‘20’ emblem on the wing end plates.

New Volkswagen Arteon R and Shooting Brake revealed

Volkswagen has revealed its heavily updated Arteon, the Passat’s sleeker, more ‘premium’ cousin. Originally revealed in 2017, the Arteon followed up the Passat CC (later just becoming CC) in taking Volkswagen’s large saloon upmarket, but has since failed to make much of an impact as buyers continue to turn to SUVs. Rather than retract from the market, Volkswagen has instead doubled down, giving the Arteon range a big update inside and out, a sleek new Shooting Brake body style and even two full-fat flagship R models.

It’s this Arteon R that is the most interesting new addition to the range, featuring a new generation of Volkswagen R power and drivetrain components that are expected to be found in other new R models. The powertrain is essentially the same EA888 four-cylinder engine as the previous Golf R, but has undergone a substantial overhaul in its ‘evo4’ form,

Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 revealed as 818bhp track-only hypercar

Following a string of teasers on social media, Lamborghini has finally revealed its limited-run, track-only Essenza SCV12 hypercar. Though it’s not destined for racing, the model marks the return of the brand’s V12 to the circuit, following in the footsteps of the Murcielago R-GT racer. Only 40 examples are set to be produced. 

Developed by Squadra Corse, the marque’s racing outfit, it’s a bespoke model engineered to be the ultimate expression of the V12, free of the limitations of road-car regulations. Designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile, the division responsible for its current racing cars, it has suitably wild looks, too…
