    • New Edition models bring extra exclusivity
    • Prices start from £126,885 OTR for the coupé and £135,575 OTR for the spyder


    Even more power, even more fun: the true meaning of “performance” at the Audi Sport GmbH. The new R8 V10 performance RWD (Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 13.0 – 12.9 (18.1 – 18.2 US mpg); Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 298 – 294) is available as a coupé or spyder with 30 PS extra and a sporty complement to the R8 V10 performance quattro. This rear-wheel drive sportscar, with its mid-mounted engine boasting 570 PS, is the embodiment of fun driving.


    The Audi R8 V10 performance RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) is the sporty new cutting edge of serial rear-wheel drive sportscars from Audi. “The Audi R8 V10 RWD really struck a chord with customers right from the start with its rear-wheel drive derived from the R8 LMS racecar and its unfiltered dynamics. Now it has 30 PS and 10 Nm more, taking the driving experience to a whole new level,” says Sebastian Grams, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. The base versions of both models, the R8 V10 quattro and the R8 V10 RWD as a Coupé and Spyder, will be replaced by the new performance models. This puts the R8 model range more firmly in the top position.

    • Three power variants, rear- or all-wheel drive and even better aerodynamics
    • A generously sized interior and Design Selections inspired by modern living environments


    Following the successful launch of the ŠKODA Enyaq iV, ŠKODA AUTO is adding a new body variant to its first all-electric SUV range: the four-door ŠKODA Enyaq Coupé iV is characterised by an elegant, sloping rear. Its drag coefficient (cd) of 0.247 is even lower than the aerodynamic Enyaq iV SUV, making the Enyaq Coupé iV more efficient and enabling it to cover more than 332 miles in the WLTP cycle when fitted with the larger battery. There is a choice of two battery sizes and three power variants with rear- or all-wheel drive. Just like in the Enyaq iV, the classic trim levels for the interior have been replaced with the Design Selections. In typical ŠKODA style, the Enyaq Coupé iV boasts a generously sized interior and a boot capacity of 570 l.


    Thomas Schäfer, ŠKODA AUTO CEO, said: “We have made a great start on the international markets with our all-electric flagship ŠKODA Enyaq iV. The vehicle has been very well received by our customers, and roughly 70,000 orders have been placed. In early 2022, we will be upping the ante with the Enyaq Coupé iV: this variant of our e-SUV is even more emotive and presents a real design highlight, rounding off the top end of our model range.”

    The ŠKODA Enyaq Coupé iV is an excellent addition to the Enyaq iV line-up and offers a truly dynamic car for customers who enjoy an active lifestyle. With generous amounts of space ...

    • ŠKODA cars use anonymised vehicle data to warn fellow drivers of poor road conditions
    • ‘Local Hazard Information Service’ can even detect minor road damage such as potholes
    • Service is based on swarm data intelligence: the more vehicles supply data, the more precise the analyses and predictions become
    • More than three million vehicles set to provide data by the end of 2022
    • Available for the Enyaq iV, Fabia, Kamiq, Kodiaq, Octavia, Scala and Superb in the UK as part of ŠKODA Connect services


    The ŠKODA ‘Local Hazard Information Service’ provides drivers with detailed information about current road conditions. By collecting and evaluating anonymous vehicle data, the system is able to warn of approaching hazards such as slippery or damaged road surfaces via the infotainment system, actively increasing safety in the process.


    Accelerometers and ABS sensors – that measure the acceleration and braking of the car - allow the required data to be captured continuously during each journey. Meanwhile, innovative virtual sensors estimate the friction between the tyres and the road surface based on wheel slip. The combined data is anonymised and transmitted to the cloud, where aggregated information from all connected vehicles is paired with metadata, such as weather information or previous measurements. Using the data collected, the road network can be displayed as a precise three-dimensional model, which is used to send alerts to vehicles when they find themselves approaching or within an area with bad road surfaces.

    As elegant as a coupé, as strong as an SUV and all-electric to boot: The ID.5 GTX is set to make its international exhibition debut as of 07 September – as a disguised concept at the IAA Munich Motor Show.

    With its five-cylinder, high-performance engine, the Audi RS 3 is one-of-a-kind in the segment. The 2.5 TFSI has won the “International Engine of the Year” award nine times in a row. In the latest generation of the compact sports car, the engine is now more powerful than ever before developing 400PS and 500Nm of torque - allowing a 0-62mph sprint of just 3.8 seconds.

    • Vision iV-inspired feature now available to order as an option
    • Grille features more than 130 LEDs arranged in 18 vertical strips and a horizontal band
    • Animated function activates as part of coming/leaving home feature
    • Designed to complement lighting effects of full LED headlights

    ŠKODA has added a striking new option for Enyaq iV customers – a Crystal Face grille. Now available to order as an option on Enyaq iV 80 models, the design takes its inspiration from the ŠKODA Vision iV concept car that made its public debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.


    The new grille features more than 130 LEDs that form 18 vertical ribs and a horizontal strip that runs the width of the frame, which is finished in either chrome or black. The Crystal Face has an animated Coming/Leaving Home function and, together with the LED modules for the dipped and high beam in the full LED Matrix headlights and the daytime running lights, creates a unique welcoming light display. The Crystal Face turns on when the headlights are activated and illuminates the road ahead along with the dipped beam lights.

    The Crystal Face is included in the Enyaq iV’s Light and View Plus package which can be specified on all Enyaq iV 80 models. The package is priced at £1,675 including VAT for the Enyaq iV 80 (£560 for the Enyaq iV 80 SportLine and 80x SportLine), and, in addition to the Crystal Face, adds full LED matrix beam headlights with variable light distribution, full LED rear lights with variable lighting functions, headlight washers ...

    • Produced in a numbered series, the motorcycle is characterized by the special celebratory livery that recalls that of the Ducati 996 R of the first World Superbike title won by the Australian rider in 2001
    • Equipped with Öhlins components and embellished with details that enhance its sportiness, the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary is destined to enter the hearts of Troy fans around the world
    • The video presentation of the bike, filmed at the Ducati Museum, on the track and at the Bayliss home in Australia, is available on the Ducati YouTube channel and on the Ducati.com website


    21 has been a magic number for Ducati ever since Troy Bayliss sculpted it with his victories in motorcycling history. Precisely in 2021, twenty years after winning the 2001 Superbike World Championship, Ducati is paying homage to the legendary career of the Australian rider by dedicating to him a special motorcycle, produced in a numbered series, which celebrates the first of the three World SBK titles won by Bayliss: the Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary.

    The bond between Bayliss and Ducati Corse in the Superbike World Championship is one of the most fascinating stories in the motorsport universe. The results of this beautiful adventure are 52 victories, 94 podiums and three world titles (2001, 2006 and 2008) won with three different bikes: the twin-cylinder 996 R, the 999 R and the 1098 R. Troy Bayliss is the only motorcycle racer in history capable of winning in MotoGP and World Superbike in the same season (2006) and his achievements in the race have indelibly ...

    • MY22 brings significant changes to ID.3 and ID.4 ordering process for a focus on flexibility and convenience to customers
    • Pre-configured trim-level structure altered in favour of offering customers choice over option packs when ordering an ID.3 or ID.4
    • Seven ID. variants are now eligible for the Plug-in Vehicle Grant


    Volkswagen has rolled out updates across the model range as the brand switches to its 2022 model year. The most marked changes are reserved for the ID.3 and ID.4 models. For the first time since launch, the two award-winning EVs are now offered with configurable trim levels, and a range of option packs are now available across all derivatives. The ID.3 also receives a major price revision that sees it represent even better value for money.


    As the most notable update in the Model Year 2022 (MY22) revisions, the ID.3 and ID.4 are subject to changes in their ordering process, with greater customisation possible. Previously the trim levels came pre-configured, offering a fixed suite of packages, with only colours and wheels being customisable. The MY22 update sees customers able to choose a trim level that best fits their needs and then specify further option packs on top.

    This new structure considerably increases the flexibility of the ID.3 and ID.4 in the customer’s ordering process. For example, previously it was not possible to configure an Augmented Reality Head-up display on any ID.3 model other than the Max and Tour. Now, a customer can choose any trim level and add the Infotainment Package Plus to receive the AR HUD, alongside the additional speakers that are ...

    Ok, step by step.
