Hypercars, sports cars and some sporty SUV’s coming this year. We pick our favorites.
The beginning of a new year is always an exciting time for petrol heads, why you ask? Well mainly because we get to see new cars on the road! You get to see cars that you’ve judged through a picture in real life. Does it look better in person?
1. Toyota Celica
We start off with the New Toyota Celica which so far has become one of the most awaited and promising cars of the last 10 years. The new Supra is was built in partnership with BMW and it shares the same chassis as the new Z4. The Supra name is synonymous with speed and competition, it’s really known as a car that can compete with almost anything on the road till this day. It’s been over 20 years since the last generation Supra was introduced and finally it’s back. This new car comes with a 2.o-litre /3.0-litre engine with a twin turbocharger and produces 335bhp/250kW and 500Nm of torque. Coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission, power is delivered to the rear wheels of course. The weight would be roughly the same as a GT86.
Prices start at around £50,000
2. Polestar 1
The Polestar 1 is Swedens sensible but exciting attempt at the electric and hybrid shift in the car industry. Polestar has separated itself from Volvo as an attempt to chase after the big German brands. The Polestar 1 is its first model and will be a hybrid with a 2.0 litre supercharged and turbocharged engine combustion engine at the front and two electric motors in the rear outputting a total of 600hp and 1000nm of torque. The weight distribution will be almost 50/50. Prices will start at £115,000.
3. Porsche Taycan
two motors with a power output of 600 hp (440 kW) accelerate the electric sports car to 100 km/h in well under 3.5 seconds. Well, that’s pretty much all we know..
4. Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake
Let’s be honest here, Aston Martin produces some of the most beautiful looking cars today. So when they teamed up with Zagato who are historically well known to design and build masterpieces it was a match made in heaven. A total of four special models were restyled by Zagato with the coupe already on the streets. The shooting brake is an iteration of the vanquish but one with an exceptionally practical gran tourer.
5. Bugatti Divo
The Divo is a more aggressive, hardcore, edgy version Bugatti based on the Chiron platform. Bugatti says this is a more ‘extreme Bugatti’. If you’ve got a spare 5 million euros you can’t buy it because it’s sold out.
6. Ferrari 488 Pista Spider
One of the most beautiful Ferraris and one of the best if not the best Ferrari to drive.
7. Skoda Kodiaq VRS
This 7 seater is the most powerful Skoda ever and it currently holds the fastest 7 seater lap around the Nürburgring. All of this sounds exciting but unfortunately its a diesel. Sorry.
8. Aston Martin Valkyrie
This is the next car to be a contender for the title ‘king of hypercars’. Built by engineers at Red Bull Racing, this is an F1 car for the road. The engine will also be built by Cosworth, if that doesn’t get you excited then I don’t know what will. Customers will start getting deliveries late 2019 so hopefully, we’ll see one before the year ends.
There is a special Nissan GTR on the way but because of its limited number, you might not ever see it on the road so there was no point in adding it on the list. Heres some pictures anyway just in case so you can spot it.
