2019 Audi A4
s4_2238b.jpg

The updated Audi A4 range is due to go on sale soon, and pricing has appeared on some company car lists.

Although it hasn't been officially announced by the brand, an industry source confirmed to Autocar that the 2019 A4 will start from £30,725 in base Technik form with the 35 TFSI petrol engine. The 188bhp diesel is automatic-only and priced from £34,480.

Those figures represent an increase of around £1500 over the previous entry-level SE spec. However, technology and kit upgrades will help justify the list price increase, as will competitive leasing costs.

The non-RS range flagship at launch will be the newly diesel-powered S4. That's priced at £47,295 in standard trim, with higher-spec Black Edition and Vorsprung models also available.

In an attempt to keep pace with rivals such as the new BMW 3 Series, the compact executive saloon has received an exterior and interior revamp to bring it in line with Audi’s current design themes. The firm says the changes are more substantial than is usual for a facelift, and include a range of hybridised engines. 

OUR VERDICT

Audi A4

The Audi A4 zeroes in on efficiency, technology and quality - but is it enough to drive compact saloon buyers away from the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

Driven this week

The revised A4 will be available with three 2.0-litre turbo petrol engines featuring a 12-volt mild hybrid system and ranging from 148bhp to 241bhp, along with two diesels: a 188bhp 2.0-litre and a 241bhp 3.0-litre. A 12-volt mild hybrid 2.0-litre diesel unit, with 134bhp or 161bhp, will follow after the launch. 

The S4, a rival to the Mercedes-AMG C43, will be offered in Europe purely as a mild-hybrid diesel, with a 3.0-litre engine mated to a 48-volt integrated starter/motor for a total output of 342bhp and 516lb ft of torque. 

The S4 will be offered with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive, with sport suspension as standard and a sport differential and suspension with damper control available as options. 

The entry-level 35 TFI and 40 TDI will be offered after launch with a manual gearbox as standard. All other models will be automatic as standard. Seven and eight-speed ’boxes will be used, with a six-speed manual following as an option. Entry-level A4s will be front-wheel drive, with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system available on higher-spec models.

Mercedes-Benz GLE 400d 2019
1-mercedes-gle-400d-2019-uk-fd-hero-front.jpg

We’re now getting through the range of the fourth-generation Mercedes-Benz GLE (once known as M-Class), which brings us here to the most potent diesel-powered version you can buy. 

The GLE 400d uses a 2.9-litre straight-six turbodiesel producing 325bhp and a hefty 516lb ft. You can also get a lower-powered (268bhp) version of this engine in the 350d, plus an entry-level four-cylinder in the 300d with 242bhp. Whatever version you choose, power is sent to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic gearbox. 

Elsewhere, the 400d is much the same as we already know. This new GLE is longer, wider and lower than the car before it and comes with the option of seven seats for the first time. It’s also a technological tour-de-force, with a high-tech, high-quality interior and just one trim 'option': AMG Line. 

Yet the GLE’s real party piece that we were so impressed by on its international launch, the clever E-Active suspension – which integrates a development of the Airmatic air suspension with a 48-volt electrical system and camera to scan the road ahead and individually prime each wheel – remains absent from the UK options list and therefore our test car.

2-mercedes-gle-400d-2019-uk-fd-hero-side.jpg


What we can marvel at on the GLE, though, is that engine. It’s a really lovely thing, with actual aural character. That’s so lacking in most petrol cars these days, let alone diesels that were never known for their bark, yet the growl from the under the bonnet as you explore the wide band of torque – which is delivered with some considerable shove – will raise a smile. It’s an engine willing to be revved, and one with acceleration that feels better than the official 0-62mph time of 7.6sec suggests.

The engine is ideally suited for towing, too, our GLE coming equipped with the £1150 Towing Package that boosts capacity to a mighty 3500kg. Real-world economy hovered around 30mpg on our mixed-roads test route, which is decent if not outstanding for a big, heavy car, yet the 85-litre fuel tank at least means infrequent fill-ups, thanks to a range of close to 600 miles. 

A great engine, then, but not a great car overall. While the primary ride is as about as comfortable as they come, the secondary ride really lets your backside know you’ve been over a bump or a scar in the road surface. It’s the biggest thing that lets the 400d’s mask slip from being a complete, well-rounded, luxurious and comfortable SUV.

The biggest thing, but not the only thing: it also exhibits too much roll around corners, with steering too remote to feel you’re hanging on and the car’s taking you around a corner rather than you guiding it around yourself if you display even the tiniest bit of enthusiasm.

This dynamic performance makes it all the telling that the lacking E-Active suspension is chiefly designed to counteract body lean, as well as iron out the ride by reading the road ahead, much like the previous version of the system – Magic Body Control – used on the S-Class. It’s too expensive an option for Mercedes UK to deem worth offering here, but it would be fascinating to see just how much it could transform the GLE.

Mercedes-Benz turned heads at CES Las Vegas when it debuted the 2020 CLA 250. The second generation CLA garnered praise from critics for its trim silhouette and sleek body, buoyed by a bevy of improved technical specs.

The 2020 CLA boasts 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, made possible by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine. Mercedes also reports that suspension and steering improvements make the CLA the best-driving compact model produced by the German behemoth, with standard front-wheel drive, though 4Matic all-wheel is an option. Mercedes also touts its improved infotainment system, which purportedly improves upon the edition debuted in 2018’s A-class CLA; the automaker demonstrated that the system can answer more complex questions (“What child-friendly Asian restaurants are nearby that are neither Chinese nor Japanese?”) and can be activated by a simple “Hey, Mercedes.”

Visit the Mercedes-Benz site for detailed information and look for the car to debut later this year.

Meanwhile, Porsche is revving up its 2020 911 Carrera Cabriolet.

Ford Unveils Its Most Powerful Street-Legal Mustang, the 2020 Shelby GT500
5c3ca45dec05c4b311000084.jpg

Ford has just unveiled its most powerful Mustang to date at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 receives a supercharged 5.2-litre V8 motor that is matched with Ford’s newly-developed dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission — equating to 700 horsepower, all the while allowing the Shelby GT500 to sprint quarter-miles in just under 11 seconds.

Sporting the Shelby Cobra badge, the GT500 comes in various trims including a “Track Pack” which sees a number of carbon bits, Recaro seats, massive Brembo six-piston calipers, and even the removal of the rear seats for weight reduction. This is definitely going to please the American muscle crowd, as not only does the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 get a massive boost in power, but its also receives refined interior/exterior styling, combined with quality components.

Look for more information on availability and pricing this coming fall. In other automotive news, the 2020 Toyota Supra has finally arrived.

High-end luxury automaker Bentley will soon be unleashing a limited-edition SUV range to celebrate a recent milestone achievement. A Bentley Bentayga – driven by two-time champion Rhys Millen — took to the picturesque Pikes Peak mountain range with the aim of claiming the fastest time put forth by any and all SUV’s before it. Clocking in at a time of just 10:49.9 proved good enough to claim top spot, earning the honors of fastest production SUV at Pikes Peak.

With this win in hand, 10 W12-powered Bentayga “Pikes Peak” editions will come to the forefront, some of which will feature a “Beluga Black” paint job, while others will receive the “Radium” treatment. Both versions, however, will come equipped with black gloss fittings, a carbon fiber splitter, side skirts, diffuser and a rear spoiler, amongst others. The limited-edition Bentley Bentayga will be available for order in the U.S. and Europe later this August.

The 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake Is Making a Return
1967-ford-shelby-gt500-return-new-cars-0.jpg

In the 1960s, Shelby constructed a demonstration Mustang for Goodyear – the Shelby GT500 Super Snake. The car was powered by a lightweight 427-cubic-inch race engine taken from a Le Mans-winning Ford GT40. As a result, it is said to have produced 520 horsepower, which was a stat for its time.

In 2013, Shelby dealer Don McCain purchased the sole 1960s Shelby car for $1.3 million USD and now, Shelby will build 10 more cars for collectors. The GT500 Super Snake will be powered by a 427 V-8 550 hp engine. Both aluminum and cast-iron blocks will be available for the buyer to choose from. The car will be backed by a four-speed manual transmission and will have the famous triple stripes and disc brakes much like the original.

In addition, purchasers will also get original signature by Carroll Shelby and Don McCain. While both have already passed away, McCain promoted the idea of the Super Snake program to Shelby and they both signed ten dash plaques for the cars. Each car will be priced at $249,995 USD.

Ferrari Debuts SP38 Supercar Made for One Customer Only
ferrari-sp38-supercar-4.jpg

Crafted for “one of Ferrari‘s most dedicated customers,” the SP38 is in a class all its own. Crafted from the chassis and running gear of a 488 GTB, the SP38 sports design details influenced by the F40, including rear spoiler and engine cover construction influenced by the heritage car. Boasting ultra-thin headlights and a carbon fiber flip-up assembly, the SP38 was designed with speed in mind, as its owner reportedly maintains a “deep passion for racing.” According to Top Gear, stats may include a 0-62 time of approximately three seconds with a top speed of 205, if the SP38 is comparable to a standard 488 GTB. The unique car is one of Ferrari’s one-off models, never to be repeated again.

Check out the car in all its glory, and visit Italy’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on May 26 to see the vehicle on display for a limited time.

2019-maserati-levante-trofeo-001.jpg

After a few teasers, Maserati recently unveiled the Levante Trofeo, which will debut at this week’s New York Auto Show.

Looking to combat Porsche‘s Cayenne Turbo, the Levante Trofeo features a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine built by Ferrari which cranks out 538 lb-ft of torque and 590 horsepower. The powerful engine enables the road monster to go from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach speeds in excess of 300 km/h.

To match the monstrous engine is an aggressive exterior led by Full Matrix LED headlights, vertical grid grill, honeycomb mesh air intakes, ventilated hood and carbon fiber accents. While the four-tailpipe sports exhaust system and a body-color diffuser continue the aggressive look found at the front of the car.

The luxury sports aesthetic continues in the interior of the car with sculpted sports seats, matte carbon fiber trim and a unique instrument cluster with V8 badging. Set to enter production this summer, Maserati’s Levante Trofeo is set to receive an exclusive North American launch edition sometime next year.

Elon Musk Takes Over Tesla Model 3 Production
elon-musk-model-3-production-most-critical-job-1.jpg

After months of faults and delays with the production of Tesla‘s Model 3 car — reportedly due to using flawed parts — Elon Musk has now taken over control of the division in charge. Musk originally estimated that Tesla would be making 20,000 of the cars per month by December, however that was later downgraded 2,500 cars per week by the end of March. This revised target was also missed, with the real figure ending up closer to 2,000 per week.

Initial reports had claimed that Musk has taken over the duty from Doug Field, Tesla’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, although Musk said this wasn’t true. On Twitter, the entrepreneur explained that his “job as CEO is to focus on what’s most critical, which is currently Model 3 production. Doug, who I regard as one of the world’s most talented engineering execs, is focused on vehicle engineering.” Musk also went on to reveal that the move meant he was “back to sleeping at factory. Car biz is hell…”

Last week, we saw John Lennon’s 1969 Monkey Bike go up for auction; this week, another Beatles memorabilia is available to purchase: Sir Paul McCartney‘s 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2 coupé. The glamorous vintage car was delivered to Paul McCartney during the height of The Beatles‘ popularity. It’s believed to be one of the four imported into the UK via air freight by British United Air Ferries and its previous owner — a well-known automobile collector — bought the car twice, selling it in 1989 only to reacquire it in 1996.

This classic Italian car has a wine red finish with beige pigskin interiors. Its 4.0L V12 engine offers a broad range of smooth torque that achieves high levels of performance “without noise, fuss, temperament or drama,” according to Autocar magazine. The storied vehicle comes with accompanying documentation such as sundry bills, a copy of the old UK V5 registration and an old-style logbook.

Check out Paul McCartney’s 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT above and head over to Bonhams’ website for more details. For more automobile eye candy, Morgan Motor Company debuted its extremely limited bespoke Aero GT sports car.

First revealed in January at the Detroit Motor Show, the Mercedes G-Class has been showcased in an assortment of different high-end makes, including the all-red “Night Package” and murdered-out Edition 1. Following the other drool-worthy reveals, this latest iteration is informed by stainless steel accents and enveloped in a cool-hued paint job.

Rear bumper detailing, sill protectors, door stripes, the spare tire carrier, and more are all executed in stainless steel, granting the car extra sturdiness and weather resistance. It’s not the only Mercedes-Benz model to feature the optional stainless steel treatment, but this is the first G-Class to offer the make. Fueled by a 4-liter twin turbo V8 and elevated by four-wheel drive, the SUV is friendly to both big city cruising and off-road exploration.

The G Class is already on roads now, with basic options starting at $123,600 USD. Most recently, Mercedes-Maybach revealed the safety symbol-projection feature of its 2019 S-Class.

Oceanco Releases the 115-Meter Long Tuhura Superyacht
oceanco-tuhura-superyacht-1.jpg

Oceanco has released its new super yacht, called the Tuhura. The vehicle, created in collaboration with Lobanov design studio, BMT Nigel Gee and Achille Salvagni, it looks to the past for its design inspiration. The exterior is modelled after canoes that were used by Polynesians. Igor Lobanov, from the eponymous studio, described the thinking behind the boat in a statement.“Our Tuhura is a simple idea. The thought was to take a natural shape similar to those seen in the earliest canoe-type craft and augment it multifold to a larger scale, using modern technology.”

The interior uses teak, gunmetal and bronze throughout while the engine is a hybrid Azipod CRP propulsion system. The system enables the vessel to move at speeds of up to 18 knots, an impressive speed for the 377-foot yacht. You can get more information about Oceanco’s Tuhura yacht from the company’s website.

In other yacht news, ENATA has created a “flying” yacht.

Ducati Recruits Customizer Fred Krugger for a New Concept XDiavel

For the latest in its XDiavel line, Ducati has handed creative control to Fred Krugger, one of the motorbiking world’s best known customizers. The resulting bike is named the Ducati ‘Thiverval’ after a small racetrack on the outskirts of Paris, and was first shown to the world at the recent 2017 Bikers’ Classics Lifestyle Village. Krugger’s twist on the bike features a full exposed engine and hidden trellis frame to simplify the bike’s lines, while the XDiavel’s superstructures have been completely rebuilt from the original. The customizer’s aim was to create a power cruiser that would be imaginative while also keeping its ties to the XDaviel and Ducati’s DNA. This is the third time that Ducati has produced a concept bike based on the XDiavel, with Roland Sands putting his spin on the bike and the DraXter by Ducati’s design team.

Ducati has recently been put up for sale by Audi, with the German automobile company apparently seeking $1 billion USD for the luxury Italian motorcycle brand.

Check out This Concept for the New Tesla Roadster

Even though the rumors of a new Tesla Roadster have been around for a while, we’re still no closer to actual confirmation from Elon Musk. With this in mind, Brazilian designer Vinicius Buch has taken matters into his own hands and produced a concept of what a potential new Roadster could look like. Featuring a slightly asymmetrical open top, swipe-to-unlock doors and a Tesla logo that also functions as a start button, the car’s interior comes with a minimalist dashboard with a split touch screen and keyboard. The new Roadster is rumored to drop sometime in 2019, so hopefully this concept will tide you over until then.

Subaru Unleashes the WRX STI Type RA & BRZ tS

Subaru has finally revealed the long-awaited WRX STI Type RA & BRZ tS — slightly modified versions of two of its popular models — with the added acronyms standing for “Record Attempt” and “Tuned by STI” respectively. While the Type RA is sturdier and lighter than its predecessor and the tS comes with 18-inch wheels for the first time, pleasing as they are to the eye there’s not a lot of movement under the hood: the RA receives a slight nudge to 310hp from 305; the tS lacks a Subaru turbo, so fans of the BRZ’s handling but not of its horsepower will still need to wait for the rumored, true STI version.

With other minor modifications such as 19-inch forged alloy wheels and an exposed carbon fiber roof for the WRX STI Type RA, Brembo brakes, beefed up suspension braces and 215/40 R 18 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires for the tS, final details — including that all-important price tag — will roll out later this year, with the two models expected to go on sale in early 2018.

One-Of-A-Kind Rolls-Royce Reportedly Sells for $13 Million USD

After making its debut at the Concorso d’Eleganza in Villa d’Este, Italy over the weekend, the Rolls-Royce Sweptail could be the most expensive car ever, with early estimates putting the price somewhere in the $13 million USD. The handcrafted vehicle takes inspiration from the traditional coach builds that made Rolls-Royce famous in the 1920s and 1930s. Custom made for a particular buyer, the brand says they wanted to combine aspects from the old coach-style vehicle with modern day technology.

“This individual approached the marque with his own idea of a two-seat Rolls-Royce that he wanted to be created in the here and now,” Rolls-Royce said in a press release. “That motor car is here, now and is christened ‘Sweptail’. In a nod to the swept-tail of certain Rolls-Royces from the 1920s, admired by the client so much, he asked Rolls-Royce to re-imagine this feature on his one-off motor car.”

The two-door coupe is the only version of its kind with some very distinct features along with some we’re used to seeing on traditional Rolls-Royce models. The roof of the vehicle dips down into a rounded edge along the rear, a design which the customer chose after asking the brand to emulate what’s usually seen on racing yachts. According to the report, the customer is an enthusiast of racing yachts, and Rolls-Royce wanted to create something that would satisfy all of his needs.

“Sweptail is the automotive equivalent of Haute Couture. It is a Rolls-Royce designed and hand-tailored to fit a specific customer,” said Director of Design Giles Taylor. “This customer came to the House of Rolls-Royce with an idea, shared in the creative process where we advised him on his cloth, and then we tailored that cloth to him. You might say we cut the cloth for the suit of clothes that he will be judged by.”

The Lamborghini Huracán Gets a Track-Ready Body Upgrade and High-Tech Tune

Through the addition of a carbon aerodynamic-enhancement kit, high-tech forged wheels and a twin-supercharger V-10 engine, customisation specialist Novitec Torado has given the Lamborghini Huracán RWD Coupe a punchy new makeover. Already responsible for a number of high-performance updates to the Huracán, the German-based company has added lightweight carbon components that have been wind-tunnel tested, a twin-supercharger conversion that bumps peak power to 611kW/830hp and high-performance exhaust systems, while a competition interior with carbon racing seats and rollover cage are also available for track use. With tweaked bodywork and addition of a spoiler, this customisation has resulted in a leaner, race-ready appearance to what many already believe to be one of Lamborghini’s sportiest models. For more information visit the Novitec Torado site.
