In keeping with the recent Winter Games, TopGear staged its own competition on a frozen lake near those inhospitable latitudes. Corralling supercars, SUVs, a yet-to-be-launched Aston and a Tesla, we decamped with over 5000kW before splitting them into head-to-head groups. Here the test is not about sheer speed, it’s a test of those fiendishly complex traction systems, the early communication relayed to your fingertips and…a blowtorch. To unclench those frozen brake calipers. All cars except two make it back on the transporter, leaving TopGear to be the first to test the new BMW M5 against the Mercedes-AMG E63S on an epic 1500km roadtrip – our senses sharpened from the ice driving. The local launch of the Civic Type R coincided with our first test of the Megane RS. We’ve driven them back-to-back and didn’t struggle to reach a verdict on the two hottest front-wheel drive hatches to go on sale this year. You’ll need to read the magazine to see which camp you fall into. Intake uncovers almost-forgotten motoring nostalgia and feats of speed while TG Drives reviews Audi’s A7, the Volkswagen Polo and Porsche’s fastest hybrid car. It’s been fifty years since the venerable Hilux was launched – generational motoring culture that’s now simpler to understand as we trace the evolution of South Africa’s best-selling bakkie and the special editions of ‘TopGear’s indestructible.’ Thanks for reading. Andrew Leopold Editor.
