TVR was a well-known British sports car manufacturer in its prime. Ailed by low demand and several other problems, the Blackpool-based manufacturer has been lying dormant for the last 11 years. But now, it has revealed a new model under its new ownership. First of all, the new boy in the block comes with a piece of heritage. The new car, TVR Griffith, sports the name of the popular Rover V8-powered roadster that they created in the 1990s.
2017 Frankfurt Motor Show
Lamborghini revealed the Aventador S a few months ago to act as a bridge between the regular Aventador and the bloodthirsty SV. Following that up, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, is the drop-top Aventador S Roadster. The Roadster carries over the same exterior design of the Coupe but with some distinct updates of its own.
At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Kia revealed the Picanto X-Line as the most powerful Picanto variant, with a 98 hp engine. But instead of giving it a hot-hatch frock, Kia decided to dress it up in a butch crossover costume.
Only a few weeks have passed since the day Porsche took the covers off the 3rd generation Porsche Cayenne and Cayenne S. Now, Porsche has unwrapped yet another Cayenne variant, this time it’s the top dog, the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. As per the features list, the 3rd gen Porsche Cayenne Turbo may be the closest an SUV has ever got to a sports car.
Hyundai’s premium brand Genesis was launched with the aim to take on the German luxury cars by offering better value-for-money. It all started with the large Genesis G90 and the the smaller G80, the latter unfortunately starting life as a Hyundai-badged model. Now they have turned their attention towards the entry-luxury compact segment. At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Hyundai revealed the Genesis G70, a sedan tailored to lock horns with the BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations department flung the wraps off their new Land Rover Discovery SVX at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Discovery SVX is tailored for the dirt hungry enthusiasts who actually dare to take their Land Rovers off the beaten track. The SVX comes from the same house as the niche Jaguar XE SV Project 8.
A couple of months ago, Lotus took the covers off the most powerful model that they ever made, the Evora GT430. And now, they have even bettered it with a faster version called the Evora GT430 Sport. The GT430 Sport does not get some racy exterior bits like the rear wing and front diffuser from the standard GT430. But it retains the performance mods which includes the AP Racing brakes, the two-way adjustable Ohlins dampers, and the Torsen limited-slip differential.
Update: The Toyota FJ Cruiser is still on sale in the UAE and GCC as of 2019!
The FJ Cruiser has been around for a decade now. The quirky body and the out-of-the-box retro styling has given it a special place in the market (and our garage). After two false alarms when the FJ exited the US and Australian markets in 2014 and 2016 respectively, it is really time to say goodbye as Toyota has prepared a fitting farewell called the FJ Cruiser Final Edition for the Japanese market only.
At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Kia showed the 2018 Sorento facelift for Europe. South Korea, its home market, received the facelifted 2018 Sorento a few weeks ago. As it is just a mid-life refresh, the changes just include updated bumpers and minor tweaks in the design of the lights.
Our news feed has been harboring a bunch of leaked photos of the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado for a while now. Toyota chose the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show as the venue for officially revealing their mid-size SUV. The new model is longer, roomier and it comes with updated looks, but in reality, it’s just a facelift.
