Combining a mid-engine layout with the most powerful naturally aspirated V-8 to be fitted to a production vehicle was always going to be hard to beat, so it should come as little surprise that the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has won the Motor Authority Best Car To Buy 2024 award. Even with its six-figure price tag, the car is still a screaming deal and well worth a look for anyone in the market for a performance ride.

Volkswagen is working on an update for its Golf range and confirmed the debut will happen later this month. The Golf is currently in its eighth generation, and VW has confirmed the next generation will be electric. That means the updated Golf will likely be the last to offer a gas engine.

Audi currently competes in the Dakar Rally with a bespoke off-roader known as the RS Q E-Tron. To highlight its participation in the grueling rally, the automaker has launched a Dakar-inspired version of the Q8 E-Tron complete with genuine off-road upgrades.
