It was simply a matter of time before McLaren joined Mission 300mph (480kph). After all, the McLaren F1 burned out brightly as a merchant of high-speed efficiency long after its introduction. And yet this first glorious peek under the Speedtail’s sleek skin references the McLaren F1 on another definitive detail; the iconic three-seat layout with the driver (TG’s Stig in this instance) placed at the car’s centre. The Speedtail is unquestionably Woking’s most beguiling design of the last three decades, and refreshing an effortless Gran Tourer rather than a one-shot stab at the record books – which is sadly even less compared to Bloodhound’s supersonic attempt now that the project is in financial administration. You can read these contrasting fortunes in the new magazine as well as our team’s look at the newest retro cars designs against the vexing backdrop as to why some work…and why others fail. Our monthly drives section has enormous variety from the adorable Suzuki Jimny to the reincarnated BMW 850i. We travel to Bahrain with Porsche for the world debut of the Panamera GTS and witness Mercedes-AMG fill another niche with the AMG GT 4-door. Rolls-Royce try to change Chris Harris’s publicly vitriolic view on the Cullinan, so sit back and watch the fireworks. At Volkswagen’s proving grounds TopGear was invited to slither behind the wheel of the Pikes Peak conquering I.D.R and on the other side of the globe we meet with Toyota SA amid their last-minute preparations for the Dakar Rally. This and more in the latest TopGearSA. Thank you for the support, helping us finish the year at 400km/h and to start 2019 where the McLaren Speedtail left off.
