A new generation of Audi’s svelte A5 coupe is just around the corner and that means new versions of the A5 Cabriolet and A5 Sportback as well. This week we spotted a prototype for the latter. Audi is yet to confirm if we’ll see the car in the United States, but we feel it would make a great companion to the larger, more expensive A7.
Croatian firm Rimac this week launched the fastest electric car money can buy. It’s called the Concept_One, and it has a four-motor powertrain that delivers a combined 1,088 horsepower. Incredibly, the company has an even more potent version dubbed the Concept_S, though we haven’t heard about it going on sale yet.
Jeep showed off a Wrangler powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 we all know as the Hellcat. But before you get too excited, note that it’s just a concept. It’s one of seven concepts Jeep built for this year’s Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, and they’re all incredibly cool.
Bugatti has a mini configurator set up on its website that showcases its new Chiron supercar in various color combinations. Our favorite is this bare carbon fiber look.
A car that’s likely to cost as much as a Chiron or perhaps even more is this uber-rare Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution race car that was converted for street use. It’s the only one of its kind in existence and it’s going under the hammer at an upcoming auction in Monaco.
One car you won’t be able to buy no matter how much money you have is BMW’s Vision Next 100 concept. BMW used it to celebrate its centennial on Monday and also point toward a possible future for its cars in terms of design and technology. That’s BMW CEO Harald Krüger sitting in the driver’s seat.
There’s an all-new E-Class going on sale this year and this week we published our first drive report on the car. So far, just two E-Class variants have been confirmed for the United States, one of which is a sporty E43 from Mercedes-AMG.
