Aston Martin's Vantage sports car has been thoroughly overhauled, gaining new styling, a much-improved interior, and plenty of extra horsepower in the process. The car is due at dealerships later this year, and should be joined shortly by an open-top version.

BMW's design chief has revealed computer-generated images of a supercar that was being developed as a replacement for the i8, as well as a hero model for the M division. The project was ultimately canned following the onset of the pandemic, and instead we got the XM.

The Bugatti Mistral roadster will be the last road car to feature Bugatti's venerable quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine. Although based on the Chiron platform, major work was required to make the Mistral a reality as the Chiron was never designed with the intention of having an open top.
