Jaguar’s F-Type two-seater
It feels as if we have been waiting forever. Thankfully Jaguar will show its new F-Type two-seater rear-wheel drive sports car at the Paris Motor Show on 27 September. The car will be launched in droptop form with a choice of three petrol engines – 340PS and 380PS versions of Jaguar’s 3.0-litre supercharged V6 and a flagship supercharged 5.0-litre V8.

Super rare supercharger from Audi
Is this the most beautiful racing car of all time? Audi certainly thinks so. It just bought an extremely rare 1939 Auto Union twin-supercharger Type D Silver Arrow racing car, one of the two legendary “Karassik cars” which were “lost” in the USSR for years. The car was notable for placing the engine behind the driver. It’s on show at the Goodwood Revival from 14-16 September.
