These powerful pedigree beasts have crossed the Channel to charm us.


Land Rover Discovery Sport

The 2018 model has been given Jaguar’s new 4-cylinder, 2-litre Ingenium petrol engine, a first for a Land Rover. The 240hp version achieves 8 litres per 100km while the 290hp version – the most powerful ever produced (100kph in 6.7 seconds) – gets a special bodywork package.


Bentley Continental Supersports
With a top speed of 336kph and doing 0 to 100kph in 3.6 seconds, this is the world’s fastest and
most powerful luxury four-seater. The convertible version also clocks in as the fastest cabriolet:
100kph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 330kph.


Lotus Elise Cup 250
Supercharged, lightweight and developed out of Lotus’s motorsports expertise, this new model packs 246hp into a chassis designed to deliver ultra-responsive handling. The aerodynamics derive from several new bits of kit, including a rear wing, front splitter, rear diffuser and bargeboards.
