Sold out? Who wouldn't want a business model like McLaren (Ferrari and Tesla albeit a different kettle of fish). Sold before the car is made. Neat.

As Harry Enfield might say

Must cost a fortune to repair any chipping say due to small stones having impacted the car while barreling down a road at speed.

Would definitely get it PPF'd with a paintjob like that

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
