Audi’s head of design, Marc Lichte, confirmed this information to Evo, adding that the next-generation RS7 will borrow its powertrain hardware...Continue reading »

When the MP4-12C launched back in 2011, McLaren offered in in a lovely dark shade called Racing Green. Hardly any were ordered, and the color was removed from McLaren’s official palette, which is a shame. Now, McLaren is bringing back a similar historic color for a limited-edition 570GT and it’s all sorts of lovely. The color is called XP Green, and it made its first McLaren appearance on the F1 GT (pictured above), a long-tail F1 created specifically for endurance racing. McLaren is building six MSO Collection 570GTs, each...Continue reading »

We’re big fans of Mazda’s past rotary engined cars, so anytime it files a new rotary patent, or a rumor surfaces that the RX-9 is finally headed to production, we get excited.We also appreciate that Mazda is still openly committed to trying to find a way to bring the rotary engine back. But we also have to accept that it’s probably not going to happen anytime soon, and one of the biggest reasons is that Mazda can only invest so much money into technology that’s unlikely to be a major profit driver. Speaking with...Continue reading »

The UK’s car manufacturing industry has witnessed a 17-year high in production last year. In 2016, a total of 1.7 million vehicles were produced, the highest total since 1999.
