Toyota’s new Supra isn’t due for a debut until the 2019 Detroit auto show next January, but that hasn’t stopped the Japanese automaker from fielding one in the VLN. A prototype was recently entered in the final race of the grueling series held at the Nürburgring.
A test mule for what’s almost certain to be Ferrari’s Purosangue SUV has been spotted. The car will be based on a new front mid-engine platform and should offer a hybrid powertrain, perhaps even as standard.
“Top Gear” has announced two new hosts to join Chris Harris as the main trio of the show. The new hosts replace Matt LeBlanc and Rory Reid, who together with Harris, stepped in after long-time hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May called it quits.
