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. Faster than a Bugatti Chiron, no less... All the info on TopGear.com now - link in bio >> Tesla Roadster Supercars carsofinstagram TopGear

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

The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Volkswagen Golf GTI - with @harrismonkey [12/13] - Perhaps it’s the least glamorous car here? But that’s only because of familiarity. Not including the absolute hot hatch benchmark would be remiss of us, and since the wonderful mk5 GTI of 2005, the fast front-drive Golf has been unfalteringly brilliant… - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on Topgear.com Volkswagen VW Golf GTI 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.

0–62mph 2.9secs, 201mph…. it’s the Lamborghini Huracán Performante The Lambo’s mixture of a 630bhp V10 and all-wheel drive should make it a formidable track weapon. Watch and speculate.

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
