If you’ve got money to spend and a new car is on the cards, it might be best to wait a little longer. Here are our top 2018 cars released this year that are definitely worth the wait. Take a look for yourself!

Lamborghini Urus

Prices from – £150,000
Release date – Late 2018

The Lamborghini Urus may just be the Super-SUV you never knew you wanted – until now. Evoking a mixed reaction of ‘love it’, ’hate it’, online, it has certainly ignited a lot of discussion regarding its exterior. But, even if you aren’t a fan of its looks, or its £150k price tag, no-one can deny it’s throwing some promising specs. Under the bonnet, there’s a 641bhp 4.0 L twin-turbo V8 with a maximum torque output of 627lb ft. Top speed is 188mph and claimed 0-62mph time is under 3.7 seconds, although independent reviews claim they’ve achieved 3.35 secs – that’s faster than the Huracan. Considering these specs smash the new Cayenne Turbo, we say don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

Ferrari Portofino

Prices from – £160,000 (est)
Release date – Early 2018

The Ferrari Portofino is Ferrari’s latest open GT model, revealed at the Frankfurt Motorshow in 2017 to replace the California T. Stunning as always to look at, Ferrari have not disappointed. The new convertible Portofino’s styling has had an aggressive upgrade from the California and California T – and so has the engine. The 3.9 litre twin turbo V8 has now been overhauled to produce 40 extra horses and 3 lb ft of torque from its predecessor. 0-62mph is now a swift 3.5 seconds and top speed is 199mph. If we had to pick, the Portofino gets our vote.

TVR Griffith

Prices from – £90,000
Release date – Late 2018

Teased at the London Motorshow in 2016 and presented for the first time at Goodwood Revival 2017 in its ‘Launch Edition’ spec, the resurrected TVR Griffith has been one of the most anticipated cars over the last year. So, it’s fair to say it has a lot to live up to – will it disappoint? We think not. Boasting unique and stunning styling, a carbon composite body, 50:50 weight distribution and a Cosworth-enhanced 5.0 Litre V8 engine, it’s estimated to produce around 500bhp. It has an estimated 0-60 time of 4 seconds and a top speed of 200mph, quite frankly, a masterpiece in the making.

Toyota (Gazoo Racing) Supra

Prices from – £50,000 (est)
Release date – 2018 (est)

A release that has been heavily shrouded in secrecy, the new Supra is thought to look like the striking FT-1 concept debuted at the 2014 Detroit Motorshow. It has recently come to light that the Supra will not have any Toyota branding; instead the Supra will be by Gazoo Racing, Toyota’s sub-brand. The new Supra is being developed in conjunction with the 2018 BMW Z4 (see below), and it has been indicated that they will share engines and as expected, many other components. It is estimated that the Supra could produce up to 350bhp in a six cylinder format. All we know is, it’s a Supra, and we hope it manages a 2018 release.


Prices from – £35,000 (est)
Release date – Summer 2018 (est)

The new BMW Z4, no longer a hairdresser’s car, instead, a soft-top convertible you’re proud to drive. (And yes, they’ve managed to make the kidney grilles even bigger.) It will be available in three versions, 181bhp and 248bhp 2.0-litre turbos – sDrive20i and sDrive30i – and the one you’ll want, a turbocharged 3.0-litre version rumoured to produce 355bhp.

Alpine A110

Prices from – £50,000 (est)
Release date – Mid 2018

It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen the Alpine badge on a car, and it’s refreshing to see it appear once more for this 2018 release. Whilst the Alpine A110 has a modest 1.8 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine producing 249bhp and 236lb ft of torque, its acceleration will surprise you. This is because the A110 is made almost entirely out of lightweight aluminium, weighing just 1,103kg. The top of the range model will reach 0-62 seconds in less than 4 seconds and has a limited top speed of 155mph. Watch out Porsche Cayman.

And if you really have money to burn…
