Tecnomar launches 4000hp V12 Lamborghini yacht

No longer are Lamborghini thrills landbound, as yacht maker Tecnomar has created a high-performance offering in collaboration with the Italian marque. Available from early 2021, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63’ adopts lightweight construction methods and two mammoth V12 power plants for ultimate performance.

At 63 feet in length, it’s not awfully compact, but thanks to the use of carbonfibre it falls into the ultra-lightweight boat classification, with a weight of 24 tons. Design is inspired primarily by Lamborghini’s most powerful model yet, the supercapacitor-equipped Siân. Its bow lights reference both the limited-run supercar and the Terzo Millennio concept, whilst other elements are said to take notes from Marcello Gandini’s Miura and Countach.

Ford GT reimagined with 700bhp Le Mansory conversion

Though limited-run models from Italy are made in fewer numbers, the latest Ford GT has become renowned for its strenuous application process and subsequent exclusivity. If this didn’t make it exclusive enough, however, three owners can now send their cars to Mansory for a full conversion, drastically changing design and increasing performance.

This is far from a mere ‘decal and wheels’ conversion, with seemingly every exterior component replaced with a remodelled Mansory counterpart. Width has increased by 5cm thanks to the use of new carbonfibre bodywork, and almost every unpainted section now bears Mansory’s trademark checkered carbon weave.

TVR is back with Cosworth power and Gordon Murray Design |

Despite frequent appearances at motor shows since its 2017 announcement, the model to revive TVR is still yet to enter production. First cars were penned for delivery in early 2019, but its Welsh Ebbw Vale factory remains untouched, with a substantial cash injection required for it to made operational. 

A recent document reveals that TVR is aiming to raise £25m to facilitate the growth of the brand, a sum that would likely be used to bring its factory into an operable state. The document also outlines the potential for hybrid and full-electric variants of the Griffith in the future. However, there are no details on these models as of yet.

2020 Bentley Bentayga revealed | evo

It’s fair to say that the Bentley Bentayga has been a controversial model for the luxury British brand, but while it’s certainly had its critics, no one can argue the fiscal merits of a high-margin SUV amongst a range of saloons and coupes. So, having been on sale now for over five years with few changes aside from an expansion of the available powertrains, Bentley has finally given the Bentayga an aesthetic update to suit.

An update similar in principle to the change Bentley made between the first and second-generation Continental GT, the new Bentayga amounts to a major refresh of the current model rather than an all-new offering. It continues to share the same underlying (Audi-designed) chassis and powertrains, but wraps them in fresh sheet metal which, although it looks similar, is quite different in the details. It has a more contemporary design that mimics the new

New 318bhp Volkswagen Tiguan R to join Arteon R and Golf R

The Volkswagen Tiguan did something quite remarkable in the year 2018. It, rather than the Golf, was Volkswagen’s highest-selling single model. This came despite the Golf having one of the most recognisable names in the business with over 45 years of consistent market presence, yet such is the power of SUVs (especially in markets outside of Europe) that the Tiguan managed to grab that top spot. As such, it comes as little surprise to see Volkswagen making the most of this market trend by expanding the Tiguan range during its midlife update with new eco-friendly e-hybrid models, and a flagship R model.

The Tiguan’s core engine range will be mostly unchanged, consisting of VW’s new 1.5-litre EVO and 2-litre turbocharged petrol fours. Also in the range is a 2-litre turbo diesel, which is now fitted with the latest dual-stage catalytic reduction system that significantly reduces the amount of nitrogen
