Mercedes launch the AMG GT Roadstar  

With a wide body and 549bhp the Mercedes have surpassed themselves with the unveiling of the AMG GT Roadstar, with the variant C set to outshine every other car at the Paris Motor Show later this month. Sporting a 4.0-litre twin-turbo motor the car casually get from  0-62mph in 3.7 seconds, showcasing beauty and ability in abundance. Highlights Enjoying an AMG performance exhaust as well as an electronic differential as standard, the car is out to impress, with the engine and its design fine-tuned to attract every modern-day driver. As 57mm more rear width than the standard Roadster version everything is just a little bit bigger and better, built with swollen bodywork to make room for the wider track and wheels.   Top Gear Magazine talks us through many other interesting feature from the German car-makers. ‘It also borrows active aero flaps behind the front bumper from the R, minimising drag when the engine’s cruising or maximising cooling when it’s working hard. New for the C is a shorter first gear ratio for the seven-speed twin clutch, and a longer seventh, plus an active pop-up rear spoiler that extends and retracts depending on speed and transmission mode.’ Giving new customers complete control over the features they wish drivers can choose to have their soft-top in black, red or beige, with the C variant coming in a whole rainbow of colours. Many have predicted a price of £110,510 for the C Roadster, placing it at the top end of the spectrum. But, does it warrant this type of money? Let us know what you think by leaving your comments...

As the fifth-generation Discovery customers are expecting nothing but perfection, with the car being officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show at the end of the month. Appearing a lot less ‘boxy’ than the versions that came before it the 4X4 is expecting to impress with regards to 2017 sales, with an impressive number of pre-orders showing customer and industry confidence. Land Rover is keeping many of the car’s details under wraps, with us hungry car-lovers just having the following comment from Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s chief design officer, to keep us going: “New Discovery redefines the large SUV. Land Rover’s design and engineering teams have revolutionised the Discovery DNA to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile and hugely capable premium SUV.” While maintaining that iconic Land Rover look the carmakers have made some changes, with the images revealed showing a wealth of upgrades and alterations. With lower body tapers slightly towards the roof, a new grille that sits higher in the nose and striking LED headlights it seems you can improve on perfection. Another upgrade is with the chassis, with Land Rover allegedly using the same aluminium chassis that is being used to base the new Range Rover on. Consequently making the car lighter the 2017 Land Rover will therefore be lighter than its predecessors, making it more economical than ever before.

Leicester City players change their gifted i8 colours from blue

When Leicester City won the Premier League the Foxes owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, bought 19 BMW i8s, costing him around £100,000 a piece. Adorned in the club’s iconic blue the convoy of cars marked everything the team was about; coming together and being united. However, today we have learnt that many of the players have has their car wrapped, stepping away from the united feel the club owner wanted to instil. It has been reported that at least 7 players have ordered their vinyl wrapping , apparently due to frustration over never being able to tell their cars apart from teammates’. Wanting to stand out Former Premier League striker Marlon Harewood now owns the garage that is modifying these cars. The former Nottingham Forest, West Ham and Aston Villa player said: “The reason they have got them changed is because there were 19 cars all exactly the same. They wanted to personalise their own vehicle. I’ve heard rumours they couldn’t find their car in the car park but you don’t forget your own car.” Clearly seeing the need to enjoy individuality the reaction from fans has been somewhat mixed, with some feeling their need for change to be a sign of disrespect. Roy Foulkes on Facebook  wrote: “More money than sense. Keep the car blue donate the cost to the first football team you ever played.” John Cooper said: “Probably that 15 identical cars in the car park was too confusing for them”. Jane Smith commented: “Can I have a free one if I promise not to change the colour?” Kim Stevenson said: “Butchers. Why were they blue ? Because that’s...
