November has been a busy month for petrolheads. There have just been too many releases from some of the best carmakers and it’s getting hard to keep up with all the excitement. From a new Ferrari to a legend reborn, here are five releases that got our blood pumping.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
Now, this was big. An electric version of the Mustang coming out wasn’t as exciting because come on, it’s 2019 and the planet is dying and stuff so we need to move to electric cars already. But the exciting part was that this is an all-electric Mustang SUV. Now that is crazy. Better watch your back, Tesla.
The Roma doesn’t look like a Ferrari in any sense though. For some, this may be a good thing and for some, not so good. It feels like it’s eaten up a Porsche with a slice of Aston Martin for breakfast. Even Ferrari knows it’s a little unconventional for the brand, so it justifies the design by stating that it was inspired by Rome in the 1950s.
Audi RS Q8
Audi’s Q lineup has always impressed its buyers. Now you add the RS badge to it and you know you have a beast. The new RS Q8 was recently unveiled and it is stunning. Apart from its jaw-dropping design, its specs are also highly impressive. Its 48V mild-hybrid V8 engine that churns out 600hp and 800Nm of torque helped it become the new lap record holder SUV at the Nurburgring track.
Aston Martin DBX
We might now see James Bond escape bad guys in an Aston Martin SUV. The British carmaker has unveiled its first-ever SUV and we’re definitely fans. An Aston Martin with an AMG-sourced 4.0-litre, turbocharged V8 that delivers 550 horses? Wow.
McLaren recently unveiled its latest supercar and this one’s special, because it’s unique. The car does not come with windows, a windscreen or even a roof. If you’re worried about ruining your hair, that’s a problem solved with this supercar. The car takes aerodynamics to a new level by controlling it to create a ‘relative bubble of calm’, which would normally be provided by glass, by shaping the wind around the vehicle. Apart from that, McLaren claims that this is the lightest road car they have ever produced. The Elva is incredibly limited: only 399 will be made, and they start at nearly £1.5 million.
