While we already know what the McLaren P1 looks like, we didn’t have much information about its powertrain until this week. All we knew was that the P1 would have a re-worked version of the MP4-12C’s engine, as well as an electric motor. McLaren have finally confirmed that the P1 will produce a total of 916hp and 900Nm of torque, coming from a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and electric motor.
The Chevrolet SS marks the return of a rear-wheel drive Chevrolet sedan to North America since production of the fourth generation Caprice ended in 1996.
North American police have had rear-drive Chevrolet Caprices for a few years now, while civilian versions of that car have been on sale in the Middle Eastern market for a bit longer. News of the Chevrolet SS will definitely be a delight for North American Chevy fans who miss being able to have rear-wheel drive fun, but at the same time having some level of practicality.
When Citroen released details on the DS5 late in 2011, I looked forward to driving it not least because Citroen have produced some of the most interesting cars in the motoring industry, but also because I thought it was a very good-looking car. The only problem is I initially had no idea what kind of a car it was – whether it was supposed to be a saloon, a station wagon, an MPV, or a crossover SUV. But if you look at it a bit more, you realize that it is more of a stylish, upscale hatchback. Whether it’s a niche market that promises Citroen plenty of success remains to be seen, but on first impression the DS5 definitely gives off a classy vibe.
