The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT takes its place as the top-of-the-line in the Cayenne range and is powered by Porsche’s most powerful twin-turbocharged V8 engine yet.

Featuring upgrades to the crankshaft, turbochargers, and direct fuel injection system, the Cayenne Turbo GT’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine produces 631hp and 626 lb-ft of torque for a 0-60mph sprint time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 186mph, making it the fastest Cayenne to date.

Visually the Cayenne Turbo GT includes GT-specific details like the front fascia with a pronounced front lip and larger side air intakes. The contoured carbon-fiber roof, black fender arches, and the 22-inch GT Design wheels in Neodyme stand out at the sides of the Cayenne Turbo GT, while the upper rear wing features side plates in carbon fiber along with an adaptive rear spoiler that features a two-inch gurney flap (twice the size of the one on the Cayenne Turbo Coupe). The rear diffusor cover made of carbon fiber completes the rear design of the vehicle.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is further enhanced by eight-way Sport Seats in the front and a sport rear seat arrangement with two seats as standard. All seats are GT-specific with perforated seat centers in Alcantara, contrasting stitching in Neodyme or Arctic Grey, and “Turbo-GT” designations on the headrests.

The Turbo GT is also the first Cayenne model to adopt the next generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with a new user interface and new operation logic.

PCM 6.0 is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay as before, but now also allows for the integration of Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and now Android Auto, allowing more smartphones to be paired to the car.

Earlier this year, Bentley revealed the new Flying Spur Hybrid as their second electric model, and to celebrate the launch, they’ve created a special “Odyssean Edition” that takes inspiration from Bentley’s futuristic EXP 100 GT concept car.

As the first production Bentley to introduce details seen in the concept vehicle that imagines the future of luxury mobility in 2035, the new Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition introduces a range of new sustainable materials that enhance the design without compromising the level of luxury expected of a Bentley.

Like other Flying Spur models, the “Odyssean Edition” also uses Bentley’s signature Flying spur “lofted diamond” pattern throughout the interior and features tweed material made from 100% British wool especially made for Bentley, Koa veneers, sustainable leathers, and specially engraved treadplates and D-pillar badging.

For the exterior of the Flying Spur Odyssean Edition, owners have a choice from a curated palette of six colors to complement the detailing and have five interior specifications to choose from, including Beluga, Porpoise, Cricket Ball, Brunel or Burnt Oak (owners are still able to select from the full range of Bentley colors if they desire).

The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition is powered by a 2.9-liter turbocharged V6 engine combined with an advanced electric motor that together delivers 536 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque for a 0-60mph time of 4.1 seconds. When fully fuelled, the Odyssean will be able to travel over 435 miles due to the new powertrain that requires significantly less fuel.

Like other Bentley models, owners can review various options and data through the My Bentley app, including the “find my car” and “lock my car” feature, location of e-charging stations, remote initiation of battery charging, and cabin comfort control.

McLaren has revealed the McLaren 765LT Spider as the brand’s most powerful convertible to date and fastest accelerating LT Spider yet.

Following on from the McLaren 765LT “Longtail” coupe unveiled last year, the new 765LT Spider will be limited to only 765 vehicles to match the production numbers of the already sold-out coupe.

The 765LT Spider, like its predecessors, stays true to the Longtail principles first developed over 25 years ago and features McLaren’s triple-patented retractable hard top roof for a driving experience that puts the driver at the center of the action.

“Lowering the convertible roof of the 765LT Spider opens up another level of driver engagement. The coupe is impressive in its own right, but when you lower the roof of the Spider, there is a step-change in character – almost a theatrical element, like experiencing a live orchestra from right in front of the stage,” shared Ian Howshall, Global Product Manager, McLaren Automotive.

As the most powerful convertible to date (not including the Elva, which doesn’t have a roof and thus can’t “convert”), the 765LT Spider is powered by the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine to produce 765PS and 800Nm of torque, hitting 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of 205mph.

A little over three years ago, Bugatti announced the Divo as a revival of its coachbuilding division and has now completed the last and final Bugatti Divo of the 40 bespoke vehicles built in total.

Delivered to a European customer, the final Bugatti Divo is finished in Bugatti EB 110 Blue with contrasting Blue Carbon and an interior with French Racing Blue and Deep Blue accents.

Following in the footsteps of Bugatti’s historic coach-built vehicles, each of the 40 Bugatti Divo’s has been individually styled by the owners with various colors, materials, and bespoke design features to ensure that none are identical.

Where the coach-built Bugatti’s of the past have consisted of various bodywork shapes tailored around a single chassis, owners of the Divo have been able to push the envelope with the design and development team being able to modify one-off technical components to create entirely individual models to suit the driving style of the owners.

“As well as unique design, customers who buy a coach-built model enjoy a new, individual driving experience,” explains Pierre Rommelfanger, Head of Overall Vehicle Development at Bugatti. “Each small series undergoes the same degree of development as would a larger production run.”

Named after the French race car driver Albert Divo, who scored a series of race victories for Bugatti over a 20-year period, in honor of him and headquarters in Molsheim, the French flag adorns the Divo’s left and right front fenders as seen on the final Divo to leave the factory.

Priced at five million euros, the Bugatti Divo was Bugatti’s most expensive model when it was first announced in 2018 and was sold within weeks of its first reveal to select customers.
