Rotary engines are exciting, and this four-seat sports car represents your last chance to own one. It’s dirt cheap, too – but there’s a catch. The sold in the UK and, now that is considering a revival of its famous Wankel concept for a new hybrid powertrain, it seems pertinent to consider its virtues. This friendly looking four-seat sports car (Mazda actually referred to it as a quad coupé) has a relatively diminutive powerplant of 1.3 litres. However, it won favour with performance enthusiasts worldwide, thanks in part to its class-leading dynamic capabilities and to that innovative engine’s 9500rpm redline. What’s more, the RX-8 offers a sub-1400kg kerb weight, a near 50:50 weight distribution and rear-hinged ‘freestyle’ doors that are as

Koenigsegg's freevalve engine promises performance and economy, but how does it actually work? Being all things to all people is something combustion engines have never been much good at but supercar maker may at last have that one licked with its Freevalve technology.

Slotting beneath super saloons in the motoring hierarchy, these more affordable alternatives are still guaranteed to entertain. When you’re in the business of testing the latest and greatest new cars, you invariably devote a great deal of effort, brainpower and words defining and expressing what separates a truly great supercar, sports car or hot hatchback from one that is merely very good. And while that’s often a captivating process, it’s important to remember one universal truth: that, for most of us, the very best kind of driver’s car is the one you can afford.

1 - Coventry Transport Museum. Few cities have as many car-related places, gems and secrets as this one. We commandeer a taxi and explore. On Priory Street, in the shadow of Coventry cathedral and down a short flight of steps that takes you below pavement level, is a length of old brick wall supported at intervals by stout buttresses. Much of the old pointing around the bricks has disappeared. In fact, some of the bricks themselves have disappeared. The work of souvenir hunters? Possibly. After all, this forgotten stretch of brickwork is all that remains of the huge Triumph factory that once stood here. Coventry is full of glimpses into its motoring past such as this: a short length of iron railings beside a busy road, a grand gatehouse outsi.

Is the most expensive or powerful car in the range the best? It's not always that simple... Not enough leaves you wanting more, but more can be too much. So, we picked a path through driver’s cars that upstage pricier variants – not too hot, not too cold, but just right. It was a drive in the new 4.0-litre that did it. I took the car on the exact same route on which I’d recently driven the – just to see whether the normal GTS could get even to within viewing distance of standards set by its vaunted sibling and product of Porsche’s fabled Motorsport division. But, as I drove, something appeared to be wrong. It wasn’t meant to be like this. I was actually having just as much fun in the GTS as I’d had in the GT4. You couldn’t use the GT4’s extr.

Volvo's CEO thinks that EV sales will recover faster than those of traditional cars. Buyers won't flood to showrooms for petrol or diesel cars after lockdown, reckons Håkan Samuelsson, so it would "be good to promote" electrification.

It promises unrivalled off-road performance with on-road niceties. But does it deliver? Now for the real test, then.We’ve already tried the new Land Rover Defender in some of the most inhospitable environments on earth, in off-road locations where its mechanical credentials were taxed to the extreme. But not anywhere as harsh as those that really show up a car’s character: the relentless, thoughtless daily grind, the urban jungle and motorway schlep, family abuse from morning till night, the get-in-and-drive as mechanical process.The kind of use, in short, that the new Defender – arguably the most important and interesting car of the year – will have to undergo when it starts filtering into customers’ daily lives.To recap: the new Defender

Carlos is voted best rally driver ever – and his son is sitting pretty too. Who is the greatest rally driver ever? It’s an argument that could occupy many hours of pub debate (if only the pubs were open). But now, for the first time, there has been a global poll – on the World Rally Championship website – and the deserved winner was Carlos Sainz. There are drivers who have won more rallies and championships, but Sainz himself doesn’t measure everything by raw statistics: instead, he’s most proud of the fact that he was the first driver to win on every surface and that he was competitive from the very beginning to the very end of his long career. I was fortunate to report on Sainz while he was still at the height of his WRC powers and then fo.

Fiat Panda 100HP, £3000: It was brought into the second-generation Panda line-up in 2006 but didn’t live beyond 2010 and, even more disappointing, wasn’t replaced.

Top-ranking turbodiesel offers 50mpg and much-improved road-manners. This is the car the Mercedes-Benz GLA should have been all along. The first-generation model was, for budgetary reasons, heavily based on the A-class hatch – and it showed. This new one, however, has been granted greater engineering freedom, and is a much more convincing effort.Bucking an industry trend, it’s also shorter than the car it replaces, though width and height are up, giving the second-gen GLA even more crossover-esque proportions and a larger footprint than either the BMW X2 or Audi Q2.Having been impressed by the top-of-the-line GLA 250 petrol, what we have here is the 220d, which is the more powerful of two diesel models confirmed so far.
