2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster

This week we drove the Mercedes-AMG GT C, in open-top Roadster form. While we’re yet to sample the ballistic GT R, we feel the GT C is probably the sweet spot in AMG’s GT sports car range. It’s a seriously impressive machine. Porsche should be worried.

Another AMG in the headlines this week is the GLC63. There’s both the standard GLC63 and more dynamically styled GLC63 Coupe, and regardless of which you get there’s a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 under the hood. It’s a breath of fresh air in an age of engine downsizing and emissions regs.

Audi’s newest A5 is impressive in standard guise, but it really comes alive in S5 form. Under the hood is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that dishes up 354 horsepower, though sadly it can only be had with an automatic transmission. In case you find living with a coupe too hard to bear, the same mechanical package is available in an S4 sedan.

No, this isn’t Cadillac’s oft-rumored flagship sedan. It’s the new “Beast” presidential limousine for Donald Trump. General Motors is developing the vehicle, and though it’s shaped like a sedan there’s a medium-duty truck platform under the armored skin.

Those in the market for affordable performance can look forward to a new generation of the Civic Si. The car has been revealed in coupe and sedan form and comes with a turbocharged engine straight from the factory. Tuners will be celebrating.

Speeders beware. The Nissan GT-R has just signed up for police duty, albeit only for the fictional Skyline Metro Police Department.

Hennessey The Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

Just before Dodge gives the world the Demon, Hennessey Performance has given us The Exorcist: a 1,000-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that’s surely worthy of the fantastic name.

We spotted the 2020 Audi Q8 undergoing testing on the Nürburgring. Sized like the Audi Q7, the new Q8 has a fast roofline, a wide track, and flared fenders. Aggression apparently will be standard. Not that you would, but apparently you can take your McLaren 570 GT camping. Why? The better...
