Latest on Autocar
Last month we featured some hot cars, and in this month’s Autocar they’re even hotter, with a first-drive impression of McLaren’s P1 hypercar, and a local test of Porsche’s new 911 Turbo S, the only car in the history of this magazine to run a VBOX-confirmed 0-100 in under three seconds. Also in rarefied territory, we report on first local drives in Audi’s svelte RS 7 and the compact hot-shot S3. Plus, we get some wheel time with Maserati’s smashing new twin-turbo V8 Quattroporte. For super-SUV fans, there’s a showdown between the new Range Rover Sport and BMW’s tri-turbo-packing M50d, while the madcap turbocharged (just one) Juke struts its stuff, as does the new Nissan Altima, which has no turbo at all. For things American, check out our Corvette ZR-1 feature, and test of the Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic, while those into V8s might like to see how the new HSV GTS fares against a V8 SuperTourer. More of a rotary fan? We have a photo tour of Mazda’s corporate museum. And for folk into extreme value, we have Suzuki’s new SX4 S-Cross and the best little sub-$10k bike currently available, KTM’s Duke 390. It’s all in the March 2014 edition of New Zealand Autocar, on sale February 20.
