In a world where 'hybrid' and 'electric' are the biggest buzzwords in the automotive industry currently, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Mercedes G-Class went the way of the dodo many years ago. It's logical, after all - especially when you consider that the similarly rugged-looking Land Rover Defender was more or less forced to stop production in recent times.
But alas, Mercedes has actually just released a brand new model. I use the word 'new' very liberally, since the damn thing still looks like it came out of 1979. That makes the G really rather special - a car that flips the bird to current automotive trends.
Norfolk-based coachbuilders Qwest have completed and unveiled the first production-ready Tesla Model S estate car in the world.
Tesla has left a noticeable gap in their lineup over their years of mass-production; they have never had an estate car. There's no denying estates are a dying breed, but it's still unusual to ignore the category altogether. What makes this particular Model S Estate special, though?
McLaren have unveiled a fully road legal, racing modified version of their sports coupe, the 570s. It's name is the McLaren MSO X.
Jaguar's newest showing of styling brilliance powered in mid to late last year to try and emphasise the importance of not just being practical, but being fast at the same time.

When you're asked what the best car chase scene in a movie is, does your brain wander to the new, high budget movies with stunning visual effects like Baby Driver, The Fast and the Furious, or John Wick? Or are the classics your thing, like Gone in 60 Seconds, or Vanishing Point?
For me, it's an easy choice - Bullitt.
