PAGANI IN SA
Daytona Group, the importer of Aston Martin, McLaren and Rolls-Royce have added another exotic nameplate to its stable: Pagani. Next year will see the arrival of the first Pagani Huayra in the country, but if you’re keen to get your hands on one of these exclusive supercars, then you may have to wait because the allocation is sold out for the next two years.
BMW has finally unveiled its new X2, which will be in South Africa in March 2018. Based on the same platform as the X1, the X2 shows a big design change compared to BMW’s other X models. One of the major design attributes is the placement of the famous BMW page on the C-pillar in the same way the brand used to do with its sports coupé models.
RANGE ROVER VELAR
The Range Rover Velar has arrived in South Africa to slot in between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. It features elegant but sporty styling, along with an interior that eclipses its stablemates when it comes to tech, although much of it will also feature in the updated Range Rover models next year. There are plenty of petrol and diesel options and it goes without saying that off-roading capability remains at its core.
Audi has revealed the next generation of its A7 Sportback. The new model features a more dynamic design than its predecessor, and it will get a similar interior to the new A8 luxury sedan — also due to arrive here in 2018. Audi is promising more self-driving elements and improved handling.
