Toyota (Gazoo Racing) Supra
Arriving Summer 2019 in the UK, the Toyota (Gazoo Racing) Supra is one of the most talked about and anticipated releases of the year. Starting at £52,695, you can expect to start seeing it on the roads later this year. The new Supra runs on a six-cylinder, twin turbo engine, producing 335bhp and is available in three trim levels; 3.0L, 3.0L Pro and the 3.0L A90 Edition. The A90 Edition trim will include new paint styling and a reupholstered cockpit for ultimate luxury.
We can’t wait.
2019 Polestar 1
An unexpected entry – the Polestar 1 – is the dark horse of 2019. Featured at Goodwood FOS 2018, this hybrid is brought to us from Volvo’s performance sub-brand, Polestar. It’s not just any hybrid either, producing 529bhp from its 2.0-litre twincharged four-cylinder petrol engine. Its powertrain consists of two electric motors and means you can have a pure electric range of 100 miles (that’s 4 x as far as the i8 can go!)
2019 Subaru STI S209
A highlight of the Detroit Motor Show, the 2019 Subaru STI S209 is the first S Series Subaru to enter the US – the downside? It’s not available in the UK. (If you fancy importing one, we can help with insurance.)
Unofficially, it produces 341bhp, with new parts to help achieve this. This has to be our favourite to come out of the Motor Show.
On sale late 2019, the Mini EV is Mini’s first all-electric car, joining the plug-in hybrid Countryman SUV this summer. The car is expected to closely follow the EV concept unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show with its unique paintwork, alloys and futuristic headlights. Its range has not yet been confirmed, however Mini have stated they have put performance and range as their top priority for the EV. With parent BMW, its range is likely to be similar to the i3 which delivers 186 miles of range.
Jointly developed with the new Supra, the new BMW Z4 is another anticipated release for 2019. It has already been recorded as being 3 seconds faster than the M2 around the Nordschleife, and with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, it produces 197bhp and achieves 0-62mph in 6.6sec. Prices are expected to start from £36,000, up to £48,500.
Bentley Flying Spur
The 2019 Bentley Continental Flying Spur has had an attractive facelift, featuring the wider grille seen on the new Continental FT coupe, as well as new headlamps and tail lights. But it isn’t all about looks. The car’s engine is the latest 6.0 litre W12 engine, which produced 626bhp and 900Nm of torque. Power and luxurious.
