Lamborghini is preparing a version of the Murciélago with an all-new V12 engine, as revealed by Autocar three months ago. Caught at the Nürburgring, the new car is set for a host of detailed styling changes that are claimed to improve the supercar’s aerodynamics signalled by the black elements adorning the front and rear of this prototype. The big news, however, surrounds Lamborghini’s plans to provide the facelifted Murciélago with a new engine, replacing the current V12 that dates back to the Miura. Insiders say the power increase could be as much as an extra 50bhp, taking it to around 620bhp.

Our Verdict

Volkswagen Jetta

The Volkswagen Jetta has a big boot, pleasant dynamics and good pricing, but is a bit dull

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
