The 2020 Lexus GS F isn’t the best sport sedan, but I kind of love it. Even with awkward cabin tech making it frustrating to live with and the nagging feeling that there are better cars in this class for similar money, I’m always happy to settle into the bright yellow GS F, fire up the V8 and punch it.

Like

  • Beefy V8 engine feels and sounds fantastic
  • F Sport seat are comfortable and supportive
  • Even though it’s dated, the GS F still looks great

Don’t Like

  • Enform cabin tech lacks modern features
  • Remote Touch controller is frustrating to use
  • Expensive relative to comparable German performers

Despite its flaws, I think the GS F has still got it where it counts. It’s certainly done

As with Detroit, Coventry’s 20th-century development was shaped by automobile manufacturing, and although those factories have vanished, the road network is what you might expect of Britain’s “motor city.”

Now cyclists are fighting back with a campaign that blends arguments about health, the environment, the coronavirus pandemic — and history.

McLaren has revealed the new carbon-fibre vehicle architecture that will underpin its new generation of hybrid vehicles – and usher in an era of fully electric supercars, too.

It has been developed in-house at the McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC) near Sheffield, where each tub will also be built before being transported to the McLaren production centre in Woking.

The platform is designed to be flexible so that it can be used in a variety of applications and has been developed specifically to allow for electrification, with the first McLaren using it to be launched in 2021.

The British supercar maker has developed ‘innovative, world-first processes’ that gets rid of unnecessary mass to reduce weight and improve safety. The build sees hundreds of pieces of carbon-fibre cloth cut for each chassis, before being aligned using precise laser technology.

These pieces are then placed in a resin mould where they
