Codenamed Purosangue (thoroughbred), the performance SUV will be one of 15 new models to leave Maranello before 2023, and will be highly differentiated from rivals like the Aston Martin DBX and Bentley Bentayga. Our vision of what it will look like is your cover star this week.
Another company plotting its biggest model yet is, strangely, Mini. The Traveller name could be revived in 2023 for an electric MPV - based on BMW’s front-wheel-drive FAAR platform - with a range of over 250 miles.
Meanwhile, new metal breaking cover this week includes Volkswagen’s ultra-niche T-Roc Cabriolet, along with big new launches in the pipeline at Hyundai, Land Rover, Pininfarina and Alpina - read about all of them in the news section.

Porsche’s new flagship Cayenne, the Turbo S E-Hybrid, packs both a 4.0-litre petrol V8 capable of 183mph, and an electric motor that offers 25 miles of zero-emissions range. It’s a towering technical achievement, for sure, but does it have the edge over the standard Turbo?
Another PHEV next, this time from BMW. The new 330e is capable of 138mpg on the combined WLTP cycle, or 41 miles from the electric motor alone. We drive it to find out if it’s as well-rounded as its petrol and diesel stablemates, before trying out the new Mercedes GLE 400D, Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet and AC Schnitzer ACS2 Sport.
This week’s road test will put an end to months of debate across the motoring enthusiast community, as we put the new Toyota GR Supra, in top-spec ‘Pro’ form, to the test. It’s fast and usable, no doubt about it, but so are its main rivals. So see if it has what it takes to head up the two-seat sports car segment.
