Comment from Top Gear:


What happens when Merc's most extreme E-Class meets TG's most extreme journalist? Imagine the scene: Jürgen Eberle shows up to work one morning as an engineer at Daimler AG, ready to do his usual engineering job as the man who makes sure that all the stuff that is supposed to fit in the front of a Mercedes-Benz E-Class – the electronics, headlights, cooling and all that important stuff – actually fits in the front of an E-Class. On his way to his office, he spots a G-Wagen 4x4² – the one with the portal hubs instead of a traditional axle set-up. And he starts thinking. Possibly muttering something along the lines of “Ich frage mich, ob…” The words “I wonder if…” that – when uttered by an engineer of any stripe – invariably lead to bent bits of metal and complicated drawings that involve maths. Essentially it’s the PhD engineering equivalent of “Hold my beer.” Follow the full adventure on TopGear.com | Link in bio.

The headline star of the new issue of TopGear magazine? The Lamborghini Urus: Sant’Agata’s 190mph SUV with the soul of a supercar. - Elsewhere in our January issue you’ll find the definitive verdict on the brand new Alpine A110 and the full story as Project Swarm – our modified Mitsubishi L200 – takes on some serious sand dunes in Namibia. Plus, we drive the quite mad 503bhp Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio in the desert and take a trip back in time and get the original Lamborghini LM002 a little bit dirty… - Download this month's issue or grab a copy now.

Sound Battle: 911 Carrera T vs GT3 Touring Volume up: can a 365bhp, 3.0-litre turbo really outdo a 4.0-litre, naturally aspirated engine that revs to 9,000rpm? Two s with a similar back-to-basics, analogue philosophy, but £30,000 and 128bhp between them. Question is which one would you have based purely on the noise they make?

The Urus is Lamborghini’s long-awaited re-entrance into the SUV market. It’s also the perfect representation of its 55-year journey from seller of mad things with an allergy to ergonomics, to an ultra-modern supercar manufacturer with the quality, reliability and business sense of Audi.

Welcome to Daikoku PA. By day, an unassuming service station car park on the outskirts of Yokohama, Japan. A place where drivers and truckers stop for some ramen and a rest. But by night? Well, it’s one of the most fascinating places in the whole automotive world. Swipe through the gallery and take a closer look at the line-up we found on our whistle stop tour. More on TopGear.com 1. Nissan GT-R (R35) 2. A trio of Toyota AE86s 3. Ferrari 512TR 4. Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) 5. A pair of modified Mazda RX-7s 6. Porsche 911 7. Bosozoku styling rules (but what car lies beneath?)

Tesla's new EV supercar will go from 0-60mph in 1.9s and outrun a Chiron >> Tesla has caught the rest of the world on the hop. Again. Meet the new Roadster. First things first, it’s FAST. Here are the numbers: 0-60mph in 1.9secs, 0-100mph in 4.2secs, the quarter mile done in 8.8secs and a top speed of over 250mph. Those acceleration figures are bananas.

The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Finally, it’s the Audi RS3 - with @harrismonkey [13/13] - Before its facelift, the current generation RS3 sounded great, went like stink, but was utterly ordinary to drive. Its mid-life fettle has seen some magic injected into its chassis. A chassis that’s now partial to oversteer, especially when grip levels are best described as ‘moist’. - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on Topgear.com Audi RS3 carsofinstagram pcoty2017 TopGear Knockhill

13 Contenders. 6251bhp. Five days. 28 Haggis. 1 winner. - Yes, we’ve corralled together 13 of the finest performance cars of the year and one @harrismonkey, totalling some 6,251bhp across five days of testing at Knockhill. Count ’em: we’ve got a Ford GT, McLaren 720S, Lamborghini Huracán Performante, Mercedes-AMG GT R, Honda Civic Type R, Porsche 911 GT3, Mercedes-AMG E63 S, Lexus LC500, Volkswagen Golf GTI, BMW M4 CS, Audi R8 Plus Spyder, Audi RS3 saloon and the lil’ Volkswagen Up GTI. Aww… After the very technical, thorough and somewhat slidey test at Knockhill, we took the seven finalists up to Scotland for a 750-mile showdown. To see the winner, pick up a copy of the mag. This month’s issue also comes with a free watch supplement: 60 pages of the world’s greatest watches and the heroes behind them. Plus: the Singer Track 1, a chat with F1, NASCAR and IndyCar hero Mario Andretti, and our watchlist comprising everything from under £250 to over £3,000.

Gorgeous Vision Coupe concept is the future for all Mazdas >> Mazda’s stunning new four-door unveiled in Tokyo previews 'Kodo' design v2.0. It’s named the Mazda Vision Coupe and, my word, it’s a handsome slab of metal. The idea is that the Vision Coupe “forgoes the rhythmical motion that prior iterations of Kodo design emphasised in body styling,” apparently. - Full story from the TokyoMotorShow on TopGear.com - Mazda VisionCoupe Tokyo Japan Kodo Words: Jack Rix Photography: manufacturer

The Honda Sports EV concept is a future-proof S2000 >> Remember the Honda Urban EV concept from the Frankfurt show? Of course you do, it rocked our world with its perfect stance and minimalist look riddled with hints of mk1 Civic, 205 GTI and VW Golf mk1. Now Honda has gone one step further and revealed the Sports EV concept at the Tokyo show. Using the same gorgeous aesthetic, it shows what a two-seater sports car – dare we say a spiritual successor to the rev-hungry S2000 – might look like. And while it won’t be able to deliver 9,000rpm manual upshifts, it’s still got plenty going for it. - Full updates from the Tokyo Motor Show on TopGear.com - Honda EV Electric Sport Urban Tokyo Japan Words: Jack Rix
