The result is the Exige S. It's the only Exige you can now buy, and is longer, wider and more aggressive than ever. Our resident racing driver and senior road tester Owne Mildenhall put the car through its paces on the road and on Lotus' famous test track.

Lamborghini Huracan review
The Lamborghini Huracan is a glorious fusion of modern technology and old-school Lamborghini theatrics. Read the full review here: http://bit.ly/1q9R6iW Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The new Lamborghini Huracan LP6104 has a big task on its hands. Not only must it beat the Ferrari 458 and the McLaren 650S, it needs to outperform the Gallardo - the car it replaced - in the showroom, as the Gallardo was the manufacturer's best-selling model ever, with 14,000 sold over a 10-year career. Happily, the Lamborghini Huracan gets off to the best possible start. Perhaps the design is a little conservative by Lamborghini's standards, but in the flesh, the aggressive proportions, aggressive front end and floating C-Pillar push all the right buttons. Like in the Lamborghini Aventador, the interior of the Huracan pays homage to fighter jets, with a flip-up ignition switch, angles everywhere and a new cockpit-like 12.3-inch digital instrument display behind the wheel that can be configured in a variety of ways. The Lamborghini Huracan also gets a whole range of brand-new technologies. For starters, there's this all new chassis which is made from a combination of aluminium and carbon fibre. This makes the Huracan not only 10 per cent lighter than the Gallardo, but also 50 per cent stiffer. There are also new three-stage adaptive dampers, as well as a variable ratio electro-mechanical steering system that varies the ratio on how quick you're driving. A new electronically controlled four-wheel drive system can send up to 70 per cent of the power to the Huracan's rear-wheels in normal driving, and up to 100 per cent when you really need it. Most importantly on the new Lamborghini Huracan, though, is a new, seven-speed twin-clutch box that shouldn't feel like you're getting kicked in the head every time you change gear. Rather than downsizing or turbocharging, Lamborghini has stuck to its guns by using a developed version of the Gallardo's naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10. The Lamborghini Huracan gets stop-start and a few other tweaks to make it a little bit cleaner, but most importantly, it's now got 602bhp and 560Nm of torque. It'll do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and it has a top-speed of 202mph. The Lamborghini Huracan's acceleration is pretty vivid. Perhaps it doesn't quite have the free-revving nature of a Ferrari 458 or the turbocharged hit of a McLaren 650S, but it's definitely lost none of the aural drama that the Gallardo had. The biggest change here with the Lamborghini Huracan, though, is its breadth of abilities. It has something called the 'Anima' switch, meaning it has three driving modes. In 'Strada' mode, it softens the suspension and dials back the ferocity of the steering, the gearbox and the throttle. 'Sport' mode is somewhat of an interim mode and it's pretty good for fast-driving on road. But since we're testing the Lamborghini Huracan at the amazing Ascari circuit in Spain, it would be a shame if we didn't go for the full-fat 'Corsa' mode. Fling it into a corner and the steering is quite light, but it's absolutely pin-sharp. In terms of feel, it's a bit like a Ferrari 458 and you can feel the variable ratio really helping you out, meaning there's no full-opposite lock. The carbon ceramic brakes on the Lamborghini Huracan are standard-fit now, and they're absolutely brutal in the way they stop the car. With the four-wheel drive system, there's also tonnes of grip. However, if you provoke the Huracan a bit, you can get it to act a bit like a rear-wheel drive car. Perhaps it's not as lairy as the Gallardo used to be - that used to like to gets its tail out at the slightest provocation - but you can still have some fun with this thing and feel it moving underneath you. The tech used in the Huracan can also make a pretty average driver look pretty spectacular. The question is though, is do you actually want a Lamborghini that flatters you and covers up all your driving mistakes? Some will say that a Lamborghini should scare the life out of you and your passenger. Then it should spit you into a hedge when you're not at the top of your game. But, we'd disagree because the new Huracan is a glorious fusion of modern electronics and old-school theatrics. If you want something that drives like a pig and breaks-down every five minutes, you can always take your £186,000 and spend it on something from Lamborghini's back catalogue.





Porsche 911 GT3 vs Aston Martin V12 Vantage S on track
We test the new 991-generation Porsche 911 GT3 against the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, the fastest ever Aston. Read more: Porsche 911 GT3 review: http://bit.ly/1lBdJtm Aston Martin V12 Vantage S review: http://bit.ly/1fWikjJ Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt There are few things more evocative than a V12 sports car, but they are becoming rarer and rarer. Fortunately, Aston Martin has stayed true to its heritage and still makes 12-cylinder cars. The fastest one is the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, which is now fitted with a new Sportshift gearbox and adaptive damping for the first time. The engine's been tuned as well- and it's the fastest production car Aston has ever made. But how does it fare against arguably the most focused track-based sports car money can buy: the Porsche 911 GT3? To find out we took the new 991 GT3 to take on the Aston Martin in an Auto Express video track battle. Now into its 3rd generation ever since its launch in 1999, the GT3 has been the benchmark for handling precision. The new 991 generation has 469bhp and 440Nm or torque from its 3.8-litre flat-six engine. For the first time it comes equipped with a PDK dual-clutch gearbox. The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S squeezes Aston's biggest engine into their smallest and most focused sports car. With 565bhp and 620 Nm of torque, the V12 produces more power than the Porsche, but the Aston weighs 235kg more than the lightweight 911 - and for the first time, the V12 comes equipped with Aston's Sportshift automated manual gearbox. With soaking wet tarmac and near-freezing temperatures the cars faced the toughest of challenges - but which one came out on top? Well, the new 911 GT3 exceeded our expectations. The engine is astonishing, the chassis is equally capable and the PDK gearbox has been improved and it's perfectly suited to this type of car. The Aston is great too - the V12 engine is packed with character and it has a playful chassis. There's also no doubting how stunning it looks, but against the stopwatch in wet conditions, the Porsche was 1.5 seconds a lap quicker - and in our dry practice laps it was a full 4 seconds faster than the Aston Martin. There really isn't any loser here. We're glad that both of these sports cars exist and it's been a privilege to drive them.





Mercedes SL63 AMG video review - Auto Express
We travel to the south of France to test the lighter, faster, more powerful and more efficient new SL63 AMG. Read more: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/282664/mercedes_sl63_am g.html Subscribe to Auto Express magazine and get 6 issues for £1 plus a free gift: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The Mercedes SL has always been a dream car, but it's the range-topping AMG versions that have regularly appeared on the driveways of the rich and famous. This new SL63 AMG is lighter, faster, more powerful and more efficient than the old flagship, so could it be the best yet? New editor Sam Hardy travelled to the South of France to find out. The new SL63 AMG is powered by a 530bhp 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged V8 and has a price tag of around £100,000. Mercedes also offers a Performance Package, which adds another £10,000 to the price, takes power to 557bhp and increases peak torque from 800Nm to 900Nm.





Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS review - are they worth it?
Are the GTS versions of the Porsche Cayman and Boxster worth the extra money? And which is best: the Cayman or the Boxster? Porsche Cayman GTS review: http://bit.ly/QiZCeV Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The decision of whether to buy the Porsche Boxster S or Cayman S has just become harder, thanks to the arrival of the new GTS models. The new Porsche Cayman and Boxster GTS cost around £6,000 more than the S models, and come with unique front bumpers, plus a 15bhp upgrade to their 3.4-litre engines. This now provides the Boxster with 330bhp, and the Cayman with 340bhp. The GTS models also feature the Porsche sports Exhaust as standard - a £1,530 option on the S - which gives the flat-six engine a more aggressive note. Both models also get Alcantara and leather trim on the dash, which on the S model comes at a premium of £1,740. However, Porsche also gives both models a lot of unnecessary features, such as smoked rear-light clusters, directional headlamp beams and 20-inch alloy wheels - which you'll eventually end up clattering on a kerb. Both the Porsche Cayman and Boxster GTS come with the Sport Chrono Package which includes launch control and active engine mounts. While nice in terms of technology and to pretend you're one of the Porsche's race drivers, it's difficult to justify and discern these additional features when out on the open road. To conclude, you'd only need to spend £4,000 to get all of the right options on your Porsche Boxster or Cayman S. Effectively, you're paying an extra £2,000 for some new bumpers, the history attached to the GTS badge and an extra 15bhp, which you can't really feel out on the open road. It would be better to spend £2,000 on Porsche's excellent PDK paddleshift gearbox, so the premium for the GTS isn't really worth it.

Lotus Exige V6 Cup - road car vs race car - autocar.co.uk
Lotus is on its way back, and the proof is the Lotus Exige V6 Cup - both in street trim, the Cup S, and the Cup R racer. Steve Sutcliffe puts them to the test. SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://smarturl.it/autocar For most people, the standard Lotus Exige V6 would surely represent the ultimate kind of sports car. It weighs little more than a box of feathers, its interior is quite extraordinarily uncluttered by unnecessary luxuries, and its supercharged Toyota V6 engine provides it with enough grunt -- 345bhp -- to embarrass all but the most ambitious supercar drivers. Sutters travels to Lotus' test track in Hethel to drive the Exige V6 Cup S road car and the Exige V6 Cup R racer.

Lotus Exige S: The Ultimate Lotus? - XCAR
A return to Hethel is always a pleasure. Lotus' home always gives me a little bit of a tingle in my 'yes' place and the chance to muck about in the new Exige S amplified it to near pirapismic heights. Y'see, when Lotus calls a car 'Exige' you know they're not mucking about. Similarly, you know that you're likely to leave with a big grin on your face. Of course, Lotus' current nomenclature means that adding 'S' to a name means it's got a Supercharger too. Which is nice. The current car is the third Exige -- the first was based on the S1, while the second was based on the rather delicious S2 and came with all manner of engine tweaks. Anyway, compared to the new one they're... child's play. Y'see, this one gets the 3.5-litre supercharged V6 straight out of the Evora S. The result? 345bhp, 295lb ft, a top speed of 170mph and 0-62mph in less 4.0seconds. All in a car smaller than R2D2. On top of its silly powerplant, there's also the fact that it was developed by Lotus -- that means it's one of the finest handling cars in the world. It'll slide when provoked, but otherwise it'll grip like nothing else. As well as having silly power and handling finesse, the Exige S boasts a first -- traction control. The Dynamic Performance System, as Lotus calls it, gives the Exige an electronic brain that not only stops you from falling off the road, but can give you a faster lap time as well. Y'see, 'tour' mode is the 'don't crash mode', 'sport' is best called 'hero mode' as it lets the Exige's arse step out of line from time to time and 'race' mode -- it's really clever. Race mode will learn the track you're on and will give you access to its fearsome power when it thinks you're capable of using it -- no matter how hard your foot is pressed on the go pedal. A Lotus development driver told me that in a race around Hethel a car ser to 'race' will be quicker than one with no traction on at all... So not only is this the most powerful Exige, it's also the cleverest. The Exige is a car that fills its driver with confidence, it fires you from A-B with such ferocity that you can't help but grin like a loon. To go alongside the power, its noise is pretty incredible. You won't forget there's a 3.5-litre V6 mere inches behind your ear in a hurry. On track the Exige S will humble things twice its price and cars with horses for logos. Driving it in the real world may be a struggle, but you'll do it because as an experience it's simply brilliant. Specs Engine: 3.5-litre supercharged V6 Power: 345bhp Torque: 295lb ft 0-60mph: 4.0seconds Top speed: 170mph Written/Presented: Alex Goy Shot/Edited: Nick Wilkinson
