Ascari's 625bhp road-legal racer
25 October 2006

This is Ascari's answer to the Ferrari Enzo FXX and Maserati MC12 - the A10. And the Banbury firm claims it's the world's fastest roadgoing production car around a racetrack.

The A10 has 625bhp on tap but because of carbon fibre bodywork, it weighs around 1200kg. That results in a 0-60mph time of 2.8secs, with 100mph reachable in six seconds.

The car clearly shares DNA with the regular KZ1 Ascari, but it does feature new body panels, a reworked version of the current engine, revised suspension and new brakes. The option list includes remote central locking, electric windows, climate control and an alarm system - although presumably these add a few precious kilos to the car's dry weight.

Only 10 A10s will be built, each costing £350,000. That sounds steep, but it's a third of the FXX's £1m-plus pricetag...

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has 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

    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

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