As you’ve probably guessed, we’re car addicts, and therefore spend a lot of time eagerly browsing the car trade magazines and websites for the latest developments. Unlike when we were children, however, we’re not just cutting out pictures of new cars and sticking them on our bedroom wall – we can now buy them and add them to the Signature fleet! We’re doubly fortunate that our clients are car connoisseurs, fuelling our desire to bring them the newest and the best that the car industry has to offer.
Here are just a few of the exciting new cars we’re looking forward to in 2015.
Ferrari 458 Turbo
We love the Ferrari 458 – so much so that we’ve got several in our fleet! The new 458 Turbo promises to be a souped up version, probably around the 650BHP mark, featuring a twin-turbo V8. It’s highly likely that the engine will be part electric, given the market pressures towards more eco-friendly engines, and below 4 litres to ease its passage into the Chinese market. Excitingly, we’re promised an innovative re-skin of the body, with the new 458 becoming our first chance to assess the marque’s aesthetic direction under Ferrari’s new chairman.
McLaren Sports Series
Launched to rival the Porsche 911, the McLaren Sports Series is a sexy new offering that’s likely to be revealed in April. The car will carry a 3.8litre twin-turbo V8, with an output upwards of 450BHP. It’s currently causing a lot of excitement in the market thanks to its more accessible price tag, and you can follow updates on the Sports Series by using the hashtag #BlackSwanMoments.
Porsche Cayman GT4
A performance orientated Cayman? Interesting. Rumour has it that this version has lost weight, been given a serious makeover and will now out-perform the Boxster – and maybe even the 911… Expect a Cayman body with stiffened suspension, a roll bar, a giant rear wing and lots of other adjustments that are currently being kept tightly under wraps.
Known as the Bentayga, this new Bentley SUV has been hotly anticipated. It’ll be five metres long, have a choice of V8 and W12 engines, and share underpinnings with an Audi Q7. Although it launches in 2016, we’ll finally see the final version later on in 2015.
The Bentayga is designed to blend luxury with practicality, and of course compete with the Range Rover. If you’re wondering about the name, it’s a combination of Taiga – the world’s largest snow forest – and Roque Bentayga, a rugged peak in the Canary Islands.
Jaguar are calling the XE ‘the most advanced, efficient and refined sports saloon’ that they have ever produced. No pressure to meet expectations there then… Designed to compete with rivals such as the Mercedes C Class, the XE features the innovative ‘Advanced Aluminium Architecture’,which makes the car incredibly light and robust. Powered by advanced new engines, these aerodynamic cars feature an exciting suite of Jaguar Land Rover technology that is sure to make driving a breeze.
