Powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine that unleashes 800 cv, the 812 Superfast is the new benchmark in the mid-front-engined sports car segment, achieving maximum power output at 8,500 rpm, which translates to a specific power output of 123 cv/l. Figures that no other front-engined production car has ever even come near to delivering and which ensure the kind of thrilling top-end performance that is the exclusive characteristic of Ferrari’s noble V12 heritage. The engine’s power...
- The objective is always to outdo oneself. Pure beauty in all shapes and surfaces - this is the philosophy behind Horacio Pagani's latest creation. From this foundation is built a masterpiece with a perfect balance of attention to detail and technological advancement.

All Pagani creations are born from this relentless chase of beauty and passion. The Pagani Huayra Roadster represents an unbridled artistic showcase, featuring the most dynamic technology; this is Horacio Pagani's open-air tribute to the gods of wind.

- The new Audi RS3 Sportback completes the Ingolstadt premium automaker's sporty vanguard in the compact segment. Following the world premiere of the RS3 Sedan at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the Audi RS3 Sportback now stands poised to make its entry at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. With the most powerful production five-cylinder in the world, outstanding dynamism and an even sharper look, the car offers an emotional driving experience.
"The Audi RS3 Sportback offers our customers an attractive introduction to the RS world," said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Audi Sport GmbH. "Since 2011 the sporty compact model has proved itself extremely successful on the market. And with the new five-cylinder engine, the Audi RS3 Sportback is at the head of its class and continuing that strong track record."
From 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.1 seconds
Behind the impressive performance of the Audi RS3 Sportback is the world's most powerful production five-cylinder engine - the 2.5 TFSI. It delivers 294 kW (400 hp) of output - 33 hp more than the predecessor engine - and is 26 kilograms (57.3 lb) lighter thanks to its aluminum crankcase, among other features. Its maximum torque of 480 Nm (354.0 lb-ft) is available at engine speeds as low...
- With surface contouring that creates a clearly defined athletic build and dynamically stretched lines, the exterior design of the new BMW 5-Series Touring clearly expresses the blend of driving pleasure and versatility for which this model is renowned. The vehicle's tail section has an individual design language that symbolises the increased amount of space on offer in this model variant and its functional, flexible usability. The new BMW 5-Series Touring is 36 millimetres longer than the outgoing model (at 4,943 millimetres), eight millimetres wider (1,868 millimetres) and ten millimetres taller (1,498 millimetres). Plus, the wheelbase has been extended by seven millimetres to 2,975 millimetres, helping to further increase the room available for both occupants and luggage.
Front end: striking sportiness and elegant presence
The styling of the car's front end instantly projects the sporty essence of the new BMW 5-Series Touring. The headlights extend as far as the BMW kidney grille, thereby forming a continuous strip that gives added impact to the car's width while also combining with the lower air intake to emphasise its powerful stature.
The new BMW 5-Series Touring is equipped as standard with LED headlights that also employ LED units as the light source for the daytime driving lights. The design of the optional Adaptive LED Headlights provides an even more expressive take on the focused gaze of the trademark BMW light rings that are "cut off" at the top and flattened at the bottom. A horizontal bar joining the inner daytime driving light ring with the BMW kidney grille accentuates the front end's sense of width and dynamism. BMW Selective Beam anti-dazzle high beam with a range of up to 500 metres is available as a further option in conjunction with the Adaptive LED Headlights...
- Future Alfa Romeo Giulietta Gets Giulia-Inspired Styling
While Alfa Romeo is chasing global volume sales with the Stelvio crossover, it doesn't intend on disregarding its small cars, despite reducing demand for such vehicles.
next-generation Giuletta and while it hasn't confirmed it, a company official has said it's "technically possible" for the compact model to be underpinned by a shortened version of the Giulia's platform. This means that there's a chance the Giulietta could be rear-wheel drive as standard and may receive an all-wheel drive option down the road, just like the Giulia.
Beyond its new underpinnings, it is inevitable that the future Giulietta will adopt a thoroughly refreshed design, inevitably inspired by the Giulia and Stelvio.
As depicted in these renderings from Indav Design, that could mean the inclusion of a rounder front fascia with sportier headlights than the outgoing...
