2021 Maserati MC20 debuts with mysterious origin story

2021 Maserati MC20 debuts with mysterious origin story

Just like Ferrari, Maserati had a rep as a quintessential Italian sports car manufacturer. But unlike Ferrari, its Fiat stablemate, Maserati has been going through a slump for years, with only the gorgeous-yet-dated front-engined Gran Turismo/Grand Cabrio keeping their “sports car” credentials alive. When we stepped into a Maserati showroom last month, we walked out in a few minutes — it felt like travelling back to 2015, because the only model newer than that was the already-aging Levante SUV. So it came as a surprise when Maserati debuted their all-new mid-engined supercar, the Maserati MC20, which comes with petrol, electric and convertible options as well as a shady history even before it hits showrooms.

2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost looks the same, but is all new

Rolls-Royce’s “entry-level” model, the Ghost has always received its fair share of flak for being a “glorified 7-Series” as it rode on the latter’s platform, even when the Ghost exhibited proper Rolls-Royce traits in the way it rode.

2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class betters the “world’s best car”

Though the tag is a debatable one, there is no second opinion on the fact that the S-Class has been a leader in the full-size luxury sedan segment since forever (and we owned one!). And now, Mercedes-Benz improves their so-called “best car” even further, introducing the new W223 generation. Just like every S-Class before it, the new 2021 S-Class is a massive leap ahead of the outgoing one.

First drive: 2020 Bugatti Divo in Italy

If ever there were roads least suited to a hypercar, here they are. The ribbon of tarmac that stretches ahead is littered with an assortment of lumps and bumps, with some sections of bitumen having crumbled away altogether. The snaking route is also so narrow in parts that there’s just enough space for two cars to pass in opposing directions without rubbing shoulders.

Gordon Murray T.50 resurrects real McLaren F1 spirit

Gordon Murray T.50 resurrects real McLaren F1 spirit

McLaren F1 is a legendary name in the supercar world. The F1 re-wrote the supercar formula when it was launched back in the ’90s. Today’s struggling McLaren Automotive has nothing to do with the original any more, as their cars became automatic soft-sprung playthings for show-offs and instagrammers. So when the creator of the legend, Mr. Gordon Murray, decided to make a car poised to be the F1’s spiritual successor, every well-heeled car enthusiast stood up and took notice. Dubbed the Gordon Murray T.50, the spiritual successor of the McLaren F1 has now been revealed.
