McLaren’s latest supercar is the stripped-out track special known as the Senna. Only 500 will be built and all are accounted for. This week we saw the 789-horsepower beast in a new baby blue color and learned all the juicy specs.
2019 Audi A7, January, 2018 media drive, Cape Town, South Africa,
We headed to South Africa to test the 2019 Audi A7. Right now there’s only the standard A7, which comes with a 340-horsepower turbo V-6, and it’s by no means a slow car. We can only imagine how quick the eventual S7 and RS 7 models will be.
Another car we sampled this week is the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace. You may be impressed by the styling, but Jaguar is keen to convince buyers that the E-Pace is also a driver’s SUV.
The New Stratos is finally entering production, eight years after it was revealed. It was originally a one-off project built by Pininfarina on a shortened Ferrari F430 Scuderia platform but thanks to Manifattura Automobili Torino a further 25 examples will see the light of day.

One of the cars we spied this week is the next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The camouflage gear may be laid on thick but we can already see influences of Mercedes’ current styling themes on the new flagship sedan.

Another vehicle we spied is the new BMW X7. The styling mostly is your standard BMW fare but the thick chrome-plated bars of the grille does remind one of the character Jaws from the James Bond movies.
This week was the 2018 Chicago Auto Show and there we saw an updated TRD Pro lineup from Toyota. The lineup once again includes Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner models, and each now comes standard with Fox shocks. The Tacoma TRD Pro is also available with this cool snorkel.
Surprisingly absent from the Chicago show was Ford’s new Ranger Raptor, as the new performance pickup made its debut on the other side of the globe. In Bangkok, Thailand to be exact. That’s because Ford hasn’t confirmed it for U.S. sale just yet, but it appears that it’s only a matter of time.
