According to the latest JD Power survey, German and Japanese car manufacturers are ruling the roost, holding 16 spots in the top 20 – with the tired Ford Ka trailing in last place. Whilst its useful for car buyers to know which brands give the most customer satisfaction launch x431 pro mini, it’s vital to look stylish and give the neighbours something to be jealous about. Rather than feeling like you’re travelling down the M25 on a dreary Monday morning, you want to feel transported to the Italian alps, negotiating alpine roads like James Bond. Summer is an ideal time to make a new car purchase and with a plethora of new metal on show this year, which model will transport you into motoring heaven?
With a hefty promotional advertising campaign, including features in motoring news publications and a big budget ice skating ”Beauty and the Beast” television advert, Audi is pulling out all the stops on its R8 Spyder. Perhaps one of the best looking cars of the year, the Spyder is available on pre-order, as all of its 200 models sold like hotcakes. With the 526 bhp V10 engine comes an angelic song – the sound of pure performance. Propelling from 0-60 in a mere 4 seconds, this car is ideal for self-confident businessmen or women that enjoy the feeling of German quality combined with a muscular body.
Well it’s not launched yet, but you can pre-order it and gently stroke the brochure in the meantime – the McLaren MP4-12C is the eagerly and very long awaited replacement for the F1. At ?25,000-175,000 it’s certainly not the cheapest purchase, but think of it as an investment, or at least tell your partner that. With a 3.8 litre, 90 degree V8 engine producing an astonishing 600 bhp, 430lb ft of torque and reaching 0-60 in 3 seconds, the car has been described as a ”Ferrari killer” by motoring pundits.
Rather like the JD Power Survey, we are continuing the German theme with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS – a more meaty version of the 911 stalwart. Cheapest of the 3 hot sportscars, the 911 GT3 RS comes in at just a snippet over ?05 launch x431 v plus,000, bargainous! Boasting a six speed gearbox, 3.8 litre engine producing 444 bhp and a top speed of 193 mph, the Porsche is ideal for the racetrack as well as the road. The colour scheme is a little dull, but we can forgive Porsche for that bearing in mind the car’s performance and supercool status.
