Aston Martin Cygnet
Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible
Ferrari FF concept 4 x 4
Ford Mustang 2011
Aston Martin Cygnet – Aston Martin’s new release is the smallest Aston so far. The “baby swan” is certainly no ugly duckling, just nice and compact. UK built and possibly far too small for the Yanks, as a result, this micro sportster will only be available in Europe.
The Cygnet is under ten feet long so parking will be easy, and with low emissions in mind, this is going to be a favourite with city dwellers.
Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible – The hardtop Supersports is a beast of a car, the convertible is as exciting with the added bonus of having two passenger seats in the back. It’s only right, having this much fun needs to be shared.
The fastest ever Bentley Continental just got a little sexier.
Lexus LFA – This supercar from the Japanese carmaker is part of its F performance project. Toyota need something good in their line up after a disastrous 2010, the LFA is it. Lexus can no longer be considered a budget alternative to real luxury.
The Lexus LFA is capable of 0 – 60 mph in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph. Orders are being taken now, with only 500 being produced. And good news! The brakes should work fine with this one…
Ford Mustang 2011 – The roar of a mustang is a wonderful sound. This beefed up Mustang has the signature growl and with 305 horse power V6 engine, it has the performance.
Staggering fact – 31 mpg (Mustang, 31 mpg?!!) makes this an amazing car for 2011.
Ferrari FF concept 4 x 4 – Still only a concept car, but this is receiving huge interest, so I think eventual production is a cert. This Ferrari will comfortably seat four plus luggage and is said to drive superbly well on all terrains.
Ferrari purist’s will hate it in the same way Porsche enthusiast’s did with the Cayenne and all for the same reasons. Should Ferrari delve into the 4 x 4 market? It’s a bit like Black Sabbath recording folk music, but in the same way, the results are going to be very interesting.
