Is this the entry-level McLaren?
It certainly is. The McLaren 540C slots into the Sports Series range below the 570S and 570GT and has (you won’t be shocked to learn) slightly less power. So the 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 develops 533hp, instead of 562hp.
What is that?
The VW Beetle Dune Cabriolet. A gold-on-gold Beetle Cabriolet that was initially a concept at the 2014 Detroit motor show, but is now available in the UK as an actual car to tempt people with a sliver of California dreaming, even if they live in Solihull.
Is this a sporty Tiguan?
Not far off. It’s the VW Tiguan R-Line, the Golf-esque SUV with a very assertive makeover. It may come with the option of 4Motion all-wheel drive, but this is as urban-minded as cars like this get. Wouldn’t want to get those 20in alloys dirty, would you?
What’s this, then?
It’s the new Ford Edge. Except it’s not that new. It’s been on sale in America for a little while. Now, like the Mustang, it’s been Europeanised and welcomed into Ford’s line-up over here.
A four-cylinder BMW 7-Series? Downsizing gone a bit mad huh?
How many of those grilles are functional?
Very few. They’re attached to the new Mini John Cooper Works Convertible, which thanks to the 228HP, 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine it shares with the hard-top JCW, is the swiftest open-air Mini you can buy. In fact, it’s among the swiftest Minis of all time.
