FERRARI SLEEKEST YET
This is Ferrari's strictly limited edition (pre sold-out) SA Aperta – to be launched at the Paris Motor Show. Ferrari will build only 80 SA Apertas in homage to Italian design house Pininfarina, which is 80 this year. The V12-powered roadster sits lower to the ground than other Ferrari models and has a light soft top and low-slung windscreen to ensure the best aerodynamic performance yet.

PORSCHE’S THREE-DOOR COUPE
If you think the Porsche Cayenne Turbo is a little too pedestrian for your needs, take a look at this bad boy. Merdad Cars is unveiling its new three-door Cayenne 902 Coupe at November's MPH show. The car boasts 750BHP and can reach 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds. It offers a host of “improvements” – including the loss of a couple of doors. www.mphshow.co.uk

VAUXHALL’S HOT NEW ASTRA
Is this the new Vauxhall Astra VXR? It’s certainly Vauxhall's new three-door Astra coming next year. It’s also a phenomenally good looker, proving Vauxhall design continues to come on in leaps and bounds – note the “surface entertainment” on its flanks. When it goes on sale next year the hot hatch VXR is rumoured to offer power as high as 300hp.
