The latest in a long line of super station wagons from Audi, the RS6 Avant storms in with 560bhp and a top speed (if you decide to check the appropriate box on the options list to delimit it) of up to 305km/h. That it’s packaged in the bodyshell of an A6 Avant only makes the package more appealing, because it means generous rear bench legroom and a cavernous boot.

The second-generation Audi R8 may bear many passing similarities to its predecessor, but what hides beneath the aluminium bodywork reveals a total overhaul. Apart from the new chassis comes a revised 5.2-litre V10, which in the R8’s most powerful Plus variant, develops 610bhp, making it Audi’s most powerful road car ever. It’s a fitting successor to the brilliant original, and yes, if you check the appropriate box on the options sheet, it also can be very orange.

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is one of the best examples of a carmaker taking temporary leave of its senses in the best possible way, by taking its biggest engine (a 565bhp, 5.9-litre V12) and cramming it into its smallest car (it measures just 4385mm long).

Jaguar’s modern reputation (post-Tata takeover, anyway) has been built on lithe machines and the F-PACE is no different, or so the claim goes, with Coventry touting it’s a practical sports car. Backing up that claim is a mechanical platform that shares many similarities with the one used in the F-TYPE sports car.

The Huracan is the follow-up to the Gallardo, the best-selling Lamborghini of all time. The second ‘baby Lambo’ rolls in with more power, less weight and stunning angular design informed by its bigger brother, the Aventador. The Huracan is just as dramatic on the inside, thanks to a cockpit festooned with switches reminiscent of a jet fighter’s controls.

One of the newer additions to the Range Rover family, the Range Rover Sport may be more luxurious than the original could ever have dreamed of being, but one thing it still has in spades is practicality. Then of course, the Range Rover Sport is still remarkably capable when the going gets muddy, and it’s this breadth of remit that makes it a unique proposition in the world of luxury SUVs.

The McLaren 570S coupe forms part of the carmaker’s Sports Series, which means it’s an entry-level car, though you’d do best not to underestimate it. As with all McLaren cars, it has a ripping 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and it’s built around a lightweight carbon fibre tub. And as we all know, big power and low weight means plenty of supercar-grade shenanigans.

“If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”, goes the old saying, and that’s very true in the case of the Porsche 911, which has survived for over a half-century with minimal tweaks, especially to its exterior styling. However, the updates to the 991-generation model may be the most seismic since the introduction of water-cooled engines with the 993-generation model, owing to turbocharging now used throughout the 911 range.
