Look­ing like it drove out of the mo­tor­ways of Mars straight into the bril­liant minds be­hind BMW, the i8 is truly the fu­ture, found to­day. Its in­ge­nu­ity lies in its mag­nif­i­cent mix of fu­tur­is­tic, su­per­car sex­u­al­ity with a hy­brid’s phe­nom­e­nal func­tion­al­ity. This car is light years ahead of its con­tem­po­rary cruis­ers, peer­less and pi­o­neer­ing in ev­ery way from its ul­tra­ef­fi­ciency to the seam­less aero­dy­namic de­sign. Fully decked with a six-speed Step­tronic sport au­to­matic trans­mis­sion in­clud­ing gearshift pad­dles, the i8 takes driv­ing to a whole new level. In­side, light­weight leathers and bold blue mo­tifs craft a sleek, flow­ing in­te­rior that drips with a dis­tinc­tive Space-Age am­bi­ence. Plug in this four-wheeled fan­tasy and ride into to­mor­row. With one foot stand­ing firmly on hec­tic highways and the other poised per­fectly in the glo­ri­ous race­tracks, the rip-roar­ing new Mercedes-AMG GT S de­fi­antly strad­dles both worlds, re­fus­ing to be cat­e­gorised as any­thing other than a trail­blaz­ing, speed ma­chine. It com­pro­mises noth­ing: not speed, com­fort nor pre­ci­sion, none in the slight­est. This is what it feels like to drive your dreams. Audi’s TT is the lit­tle coupé that could. Thriv­ing on the beauty of sheer sim­plic­ity, its volup­tuous curves and con­tours celebrate im­pec­ca­ble pre­ci­sion and de­tail. Though its de­sign whis­pers of lean, flow­ing grace, the Audi TT Coupé in­dulges in mo­ments of bom­bast via its vir­tual cock­pit – an in­no­va­tion no other car has seen – and a tri­umphantly tur­bocharged 220-hp TFSI en­gine. Avail­able in 10 colours, choose from Ibis White, Scuba Blue, Mythos Black or a spe­cial Day­tona Grey with pearl ef­fect. The TT takes raw power and quiet el­e­gance, re­fin­ing it into a work of art that speaks vol­umes through its world-class per­for­mance.
