It's a new look for the magazine, but the same great cars – we’ve driven the Aston Martin Vulcan, get to grips with a 641bhp Jaguar F-Type and much more

The Aston Martin Vulcan is the cover star of the new-look Autocar this week, as our very own Matt Prior takes it for a wild ride around Silverstone.

We’ve also got news of the hottest Ford Focus yet – the RS500 – which is coming to light up UK roads next year. Also from Ford, there are more details on the next Fiesta and why it’s aiming upmarket.

If that’s not tickled your fancy, check out everything we’ve found out about the Volvo XC40, upcoming Porsche Mission E and Bristol Bullet. We’ve also got news on Kia’s new sporty four-door coupé, the GT.
