Arizona, Faroe Islands and a good chunk of South Africa. At TopGear, it’s always been about the majestic as well as the random corners of the world that turn on our tastebuds for escapism. This month sees two of our boldest ideas pass through scrutiny as we take the incongruous duo of a McLaren 720S Spider and Cobra 427 along Arizona’s Apache Trail to see how two milestones of the Spider genre fare side by side. With 50 years between them, comparisons are vivid, surrounded by vistas and challenges that don’t come grander than this. We also, through no understatement, turn a Bentley Continental into a 300kW submarine by exploring the underground tunnel network that will soon connect the Faroe Islands. It also comes to our attention that nobody has done a donut at this large underwater roundabout… For those waiting for the next chapter on the race to 300mph, we visit Christian von Koenigsegg minutes before the completion of the new Jesko. This also means unprecedented images of this R25 million hypercar while we fill our notepads with the bonkers science required for driving at 500kph. Our other big feature puts the Range Rover Evoque up against the Porsche Macan and BMW X2, and besides the rather practical verdict on the trio of posh SUVs, it’s also the first glimpse at our updated design which you’ll see more of in next month’s magazine. Tell us what you think on social media. All new South African cars and bakkies launched this month have been tested and rated in typical TopGear outspokenness and enjoy our regular contributions from Chris Harris and Rory Reid. So with new controversial driving taxes on their way, it’s a lot easier and cheaper to explore new roads with TopGearSA in hand. Enjoy the read.
