#tesla's new EV supercar will go from 0-60mph in 1.9s and outrun a Chiron >> Tesla has caught the rest of the world on the hop. Again. Meet the new #roadster. First things first, it’s FAST. Here are the numbers: 0-60mph in 1.9secs, 0-100mph in 4.2secs, the quarter mile done in 8.8secs and a top speed of over 250mph. Those acceleration figures are bananas. Faster than a #bugatti Chiron, no less... All the info on #topgear.com now - link in bio >> #tesla #roadster #supercars #carsofinstagram #topgear
Singer and Williams have restored this gorgeous Porsche 911, and it's a work of lightweight, stupendously detailed beauty. Gawp here, then read the full story on how it came about over on TopGear.com | link in bio >> Image: Manufacturer  #singer #williams #porsche #carsofinstagram #topgear
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Finally, it’s the Audi RS3 - with @harrismonkey [13/13] - Before its facelift, the current generation RS3 sounded great, went like stink, but was utterly ordinary to drive. Its mid-life fettle has seen some magic injected into its chassis. A chassis that’s now partial to oversteer, especially when grip levels are best described as ‘moist’. - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #audi #rs3 #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Volkswagen Golf GTI - with @harrismonkey [12/13] - Perhaps it’s the least glamorous car here? But that’s only because of familiarity. Not including the absolute hot hatch benchmark would be remiss of us, and since the wonderful mk5 GTI of 2005, the fast front-drive Golf has been unfalteringly brilliant… - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #volkswagen #vw #golf #gti #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
13 Contenders. 6251bhp. Five days. 28 Haggis. 1 winner. - Yes, we’ve corralled together 13 of the finest performance cars of the year and one @harrismonkey, totalling some 6,251bhp across five days of testing at Knockhill. Count ’em: we’ve got a Ford GT, McLaren 720S, Lamborghini Huracán Performante, Mercedes-AMG GT R, Honda Civic Type R, Porsche 911 GT3, Mercedes-AMG E63 S, Lexus LC500, Volkswagen Golf GTI, BMW M4 CS, Audi R8 Plus Spyder, Audi RS3 saloon and the lil’ Volkswagen Up GTI. Aww…  After the very technical, thorough and somewhat slidey test at Knockhill, we took the seven finalists up to Scotland for a 750-mile showdown. To see the winner, pick up a copy of the mag.  This month’s issue also comes with a free watch supplement: 60 pages of the world’s greatest watches and the heroes behind them. Plus: the Singer Track 1, a chat with F1, NASCAR and IndyCar hero Mario Andretti, and our watchlist comprising everything from under £250 to over £3,000.

1,600bhp. A bespoke 7.4-litre V8 with twin-turbos. The Bugatti Chiron’s worst nightmare. It’s the Hennessey Venom F5 - Full story: #topgear.com - #hennessey #turbo #texas #chrion #topgear #carsofinstagram #venom

The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Mercedes-AMG GT R [11/13] - While the GT R looks for all the world like a harder, more boisterous AMG GT, it’s actually sharper, better behaved and more accomplished. Yes, it’ll be yobbish, but it’ll also settle down and be razor sharp when you’re in the mood… - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #mercedes #amg #gti #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
0–62mph 2.9secs, 201mph…. it’s the Lamborghini Huracán Performante  The Lambo’s mixture of a 630bhp V10 and all-wheel drive should make it a formidable track weapon. Watch and speculate.

The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Ford GT [10/13] - with @harrismonkey - Yep, it’s the big ‘un. Every single car on our Speed Week grid is fast, rare, exciting or a beguiling mix of the three. But the GT is the headliner, the car that we worked hardest to get here and the one that everyone spends more time than is helpful gawping at or poking around… - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #ford #gt #supercar #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Audi R8 Plus Spyder [9/13] - Does a convertible – impeded by the additional weight and decreased structural integrity of its folding soft-top – belong in a track test? When it has over 600bhp of naturally aspirated V10 and a rear-biased Quattro system, absolutely. - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #audi #r8 #spyder #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
0–62mph in 3.4secs, 155mph… it’s the Mercedes-AMG E63 S - With 603bhp, it’s one of the most powerful cars to feature in Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year, and with a RWD-only Drift Mode, one of the nuttiest, too.

The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the BMW M4 CS [8/13] - The CS is designed to be the middle ground between the regular M4 and the uber-expensive M4 GTS track special. In the dry it’s a wondrous thing, precise and fun, but will Knockhill’s monsoon give its rivals an edge? - Go and see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #bmw #m4 #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
Gorgeous Vision Coupe concept is the future for all Mazdas >> Mazda’s stunning new four-door unveiled in Tokyo previews 'Kodo' design v2.0. It’s named the Mazda Vision Coupe and, my word, it’s a handsome slab of metal. The idea is that the Vision Coupe “forgoes the rhythmical motion that prior iterations of Kodo design emphasised in body styling,” apparently. - Full story from the #tokyomotorshow on #topgear.com - #mazda #visioncoupe #tokyo #japan #kodo  Words: Jack Rix Photography: manufacturer
The Honda Sports EV concept is a future-proof S2000 >> Remember the Honda Urban EV concept from the Frankfurt show? Of course you do, it rocked our world with its perfect stance and minimalist look riddled with hints of mk1 Civic, 205 GTI and VW Golf mk1.  Now Honda has gone one step further and revealed the Sports EV concept at the Tokyo show. Using the same gorgeous aesthetic, it shows what a two-seater sports car – dare we say a spiritual successor to the rev-hungry S2000 – might look like. And while it won’t be able to deliver 9,000rpm manual upshifts, it’s still got plenty going for it. - Full updates from the Tokyo Motor Show on #topgear.com - #honda #ev #electric #sport #urban #tokyo #japan  Words: Jack Rix
The Apollo Intensa Emozione is a lunatic 769bhp V12 track toy >> From the ashes of Gumpert comes the Apollo IE, a track-only, road-illegal supercar that’s here to launch Apollo into the boutique exotica scene. Thanks to a 9,000rpm redline and 560lb ft, Apollo claims 0-62mph in 2.7 seconds, and a top speed of 208mph  Full interview and all the details: #topgear.com  #apollo #intensa #tracktoy #v12 #supercarsofinstagram
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Lexus LC500 [7/13] - Yep, a Lexus in a performance car contest. But the LC500 is very worthy of inclusion. Not only is it the most interesting looking Lexus since the LFA – perhaps it’s even more striking – but it has the same howling V8 you’ll find in the RC F and GS F… - Go and see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #lexus #lc500 #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the McLaren 720S [6/13] - It’s McLaren’s coming of age. The company, in its modern guise, has only been producing supercars for seven years. Now the core of its range – the Super Series – has entered its second generation, and it’s blasted past 700bhp in the process… - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #mclaren #720s #supercar #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Porsche 911 GT3 [5/13] - No other car on this grid will rev past 9,000rpm, a point at which the 911’s new 4.0-litre flat-six makes a sublime noise. In fact, nothing will stir the soul of those watching like the GT3 at flat chat on the pit straight… - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #porsche #911 #gt3 #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Mercedes-AMG E63 S [4/13] - Shockwaves resonated when Mercedes first revealed its E63 mega saloon was going to deploy four-wheel drive. Had AMG gone all sensible as it turns middle aged? Lord no. It’s one of the most powerful cars of this whole test, and with a RWD-only Drift Mode, one of the nuttiest, too. - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #mercedes #amg #e63 #saloon #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
The cars of Top Gear’s Performance Car of the Year 2017 >> Next up, it’s the Honda Civic Type R [3/13] - Love it or hate it the last Civic Type R was a very good hot hatch hamstrung by some usability issues. The new one is comfier and more practical than ever, but faster, too. It’s one of the best hatches on sale, and one of the most accomplished front-wheel-drive cars ever… - Go see the full PCOTY line-up on #topgear.com  #honda #civic #typer #carsofinstagram #pcoty2017 #topgear #knockhill
