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

2020 BMW M3 tech specs revealed – choice is the word for BMW’s sports saloon

BMW is finally shedding some of the mystery around the next-generation M3 as it prepares for its big reveal in September this year. While the possible technical package has been discussed for a while now, BMW has now revealed specific details of the new powertrain, and the different models it’ll be offered within. BMW M CEO Markus Flasch has also given us a glimpse at what’s to come, with a new teaser image posted on social media.

All M3 models (and M4 models, which share its technical packages) will use BMW’s S58 turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine in one of two outputs – 473bhp and 503bhp. These power figures correlate to standard M3 and M3 Competition models like others in the BMW M range, but rather than just differing in power the models also diverge in their transmission options. Standard 473bhp M3 models will be available exclusively with a six-speed manual
