Were Ken Block born in South Africa, his gymkhana wheels of choice would be Ford’s Ranger Raptor. Built for local terrain, while resonating with the country’s affection for bakkies, it’s one of 2019’s biggest launches which we just managed to squeeze onto the cover of this month’s TopGearSA ahead of any other motoring publication. Raptor shares the cover with another one of our Big Reads - the world launch of Toyota’s Supra. Based on the larger-than-first-thought partnership with BMW, Chris Harris attempts to decipher whether the new halo sportscar is Sushi, or Schnitzel? Harris has also been busy taking Aston’s Valkyrie for a virtual drive on the official test simulator (cue much spinning) and we preview the upcoming McLaren GT which will be on sale in South Africa before the end of the year. It’s McLaren like you’ve never known. Why are modern BMW’s so ugly? That’s this month’s question pondered by the TopGear team who spend time in the enormously-grilled X7 and 7 Series, yet fail to reconcile some of their initial differences. BMW’s chief designer is quick to defend his decision. You be the judge. Our monthly Drives section includes the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider, Merc’s silky CLS 53 AMG, Audi’s Q8 and Porsche’s Macan, but you’ll find that each review looks a whole lot fresher and punchier than before. That’s because we’ve overhauled the entire mag, making it more fun to read on the move with sections like Future Tech and Trending, to name a few, built into the fullness of roadtrips and photography that makes TopGear, TopGear. We know you’ll approve of this change, so enjoy the read and if you haven’t already followed our Instagram and Twitter feed on topgearmagsa, what are you waiting for?
