AN ALL-NEW second generation of Audi’s Lambo-infused supercar changes much without straying too far from the proven formula of its nine-year-old predecessor. Featuring lasers in its headlights and a screaming 449kW 5.2-litre atmo V10, the Audi is faster from a standing start to 100km/h than the slightly more powerful, closely related Lamborghini Huracan.
Expect an open-top Roadster to follow.

A TWO-DOOR version of Stuttgart’s best-selling model will finally arrive 18 months after its four-door sibling, including a range-topping stunner – a much-enhanced Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe. The two-door’s new lines lose the sedan-like dumpiness of the model it replaces, finally incorporating frameless doors. At the top of the model tree, the C63 S will use the same 375kW twin-turbo V8 as the closely related four-door version, sitting wider than the coupe it replaces while shaving 0.1sec from the current sedan’s 0-100km/h time for a sub- 4.0sec sprint, thanks to a shorter axle ratio.
