One of McLaren’s most focused models of all time – the Senna GTR – is going to auction in Abu Dhabi this weekend.
What is it? It’s easy to understand why car manufacturers are combining hybrid technology and SUVs. The interest in both, after all, is at a fever pitch – so it makes sense to amalgamate the two.

Crooks in Germany may be about to have a much harder time escaping the police, thanks to this one-off Audi RS4.
The popular saying ‘there’s an app for that’ has never been truer – even in the automotive world. These days, pretty much every car manufacturer offers a smartphone app that lets you control vehicle functions without being inside the car.
The majority of drivers haven’t heard of the ‘Dutch Reach’, a year after the government revealed plans to add it to the Highway Code.

Yes, conventional cars are all well and good, but sometimes rare, limited-edition models just tickle our fancy a little more. Ultra-sought after and therefore a little more special than ‘regular’ models, these cars have consistently set the motoring world alight.
Ford has kitted out two of its latest performance models for the police, with forces across the country said to be lining up to test the models.
