Performance Car Podcast: Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 wrap

This special episode of the performance car podcast comes to you during the height of the Frankfurt Motor Show’s press event, with new cars and updated models being announced faster than most people can keep up!

So, to make things easier for you, MOTOR’s associate editor Scott Newman and our digital journalist Chris Thompson bring you an episode covering off all things Frankfurt, from the luxurious comfort of a BMW M760Li!

From the reclining rear seats of the Bimmer, Scotty and Chris recap the following big stories:

Mercedes-AMG Project One: AMG’s F1 car for the road has caused quite a stir, and has provoked a mixed response in the MOTOR office. Its engineering is certainly incredible, but its styling might not be for everyone.

Suzuki Swift Sport:  Much anticipated Sport scores a 1.4-litre turbo motor and a sub-tonne kerb weight. The MOTOR boys are keen to see what this mini hot hatch can do!

Renault Sport Megane RS: French hot hatch hero returns while still retaining its ever-important manual ‘box.

Audi RS4 Avant: No more V8 for Audi’s wicked wagon, but the same power and more torque might make you forget about the lack of V8 note.

Audi R8 V10 RWS: The Audi R8 V10 is great and all, but what if you’re an oversteer junkie? It turns out Audi has the rear-driver you’ve been looking for!

Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package: Wingless 911 turns up, might upset a particular group of current Porsche owners…

Porsche Cayenne Turbo: Did you ever thing an SUV needed a rear air-brake? Now you can buy one.

Jaguar I-Pace Race Series: How do the boys feel about an all-electric SUV race? Err…

Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster: Roofless ruthless Lambo is impressive, but expensive!

Land Rover Discovery SVX: Finally, a supercharged V8 you can take off-road!

BMW M8 GTE: BMW’s hyper halo dons race livery and takes to the track.

Mini John Cooper Works GP Concept: Wicked JCW concept scores style points, but what’s it going to have under the bonnet?
