Here we have the complete list of Special Edition Subaru Impreza's were/are available in the UK. There have been many more editions released world wide, but here is the list of UK models along with there specifications.

       

 RB320 - 2007

November 2006, exactly one year after the sad death of Richard Burns from a brain tumour. Subaru UK announced a new special edition of their MY06 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. The RB320 is packaged in Obsidian black, with bespoke black alloys. May not be to everyone's liking but I think it looks fantastic and appropriate for the anniversary. The RB320 is no limited edition paint job, as the name suggests the RB320 delivers around 320bhp from it's WRX STi PPP package. That's a lot of oomph!! Added to that just about every subaru/prodrive option you can think of has been added as standard on the RB320

 P2 - 2005 (Prototype, not in production)

Prototype vehicle made by prodrive. Initial runours hoped it woudl be the next Impreza, but it was purely a prototype, never to be put into production. Pity it was pretty sticky in the bends!

 P1 - 1999

The second special edition to be released in 1999 was the P1, which was more to do with Prodrive than Subaru directly. Prodrive is the company that develops the Impreza's for the World Rally Teams, so they know a thing or two about the Subaru Impreza. Therefore, they decided to release their own special edition Impreza. P1.

BMW range expands with three new plug-in hybrids
New hybrid variants of the 2 Series, 3 Series and 7 Series will go on sale in the UK early next year following their debuts at the Frankfurt motor show

BMW will launch three new petrol-electric plug-in hybrid models early next year following their debuts at the Frankfurt motor show.

The 225xe, 330e and 740e join the X5 xDrive40e and sleek i8 to provide BMW with a five-strong range of plug-in hybrids, with new chairman Harald Krüger promising further petrol-electric models throughout next year.

The 225xe Active Tourer draws on the plug-in hybrid technology developed for the i8 sports car to offer the choice between front, rear or four-wheel drive, depending on the driving conditions.

A 134bhp front-mounted turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine sends power to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox. The combustion engine is supported by an 88bhp electric motor mounted within the rear axle, driving the rear wheels via a fixed-ratio gearbox.

The 225xe can travel up to 25 miles on electric power alone. At a constant cruise over longer distances, it is programmed to run in front-wheel drive, with power provided exclusively by the petrol engine at speeds of up to 126mph in order to preserve the energy reserves of its 7.7kWh lithium ion battery.

Under acceleration, the combustion and electric motor pool their resources to provide a combined system output of 221bhp and 284lb ft, as well as four-wheel drive, in hybrid mode. A 0-62mph time of 6.7sec is claimed.

Further along the model line-up, the larger rear-wheel drive 330e saloon relies on a detuned version of the plug-in petrol-electric driveline used by the X5 xDrive40e. It uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and an electric motor mounted within the gearbox to provide combined outputs of 248bhp and 310lb ft along with 148.7mpg claimed combined economy and 44g/km of CO2 emissions. The lithium ion battery provides an electric-only range of 25 miles.

The flagship of BMW?s new plug-in hybrid line-up is the 740e. Available in standard and long-wheelbase body styles with rear-wheel drive (740e and 740Le) or in long-wheelbase form with four-wheel drive (740Le xDrive), it also draws on the plug-in hybrid system used by the X5 xDrive40e. Claimed figures for the 740e are 321bhp, 369lb ft, 134.5mpg and 49g/km, plus a 25-mile electric-only range.

Tesla Model 3 on sale 2017

This Autocar image shows how the new Tesla Model 3 could look
Tesla's Model 3 will go on sale in mid-2017 as an all-electric rival to the BMW 3 Series, with prices starting at around £35,000

Production of the Tesla Model 3 will begin in 2017, company boss Elon Musk has revealed.

Announcing the first Tesla Model X production variants on social media, Musk added that Model 3 would "start production in about two years." He said this was because of the neccessity to have a fully-functioning Gigafactory up and running before producing the first vehicles.

The Gigafactory is currently being built with partner Panasonic, and is due to open in 2017. It's claimed the Gigafactory will revolutionise the way in which batteries are produced for electric vehicles, and bring crucial economies of scale for Tesla.

It's now been confirmed that the Model 3 will be revealed in March of next year, with Tesla planning a bespoke event away from the Geneva motor show.

Few details about the Tesla Model 3 have been revealed, but sources have indicated that performance up to 62mph could eclipse that of the BMW M3, which records a 0-62mph time of 4.1sec. Sources suggest the Model 3 will have a range of up to 300 miles on a single charge.

The Model 3 is expected to sit on bespoke underpinnings rather than a cut down version of the all-aluminium Model S platform, because it is tipped be around three-quarters of the size of the Model S and significantly lower in price. Prices will start at $35,000 (about £25,000) in the US, and export costs and taxes are likely to mean it sells for around £35,000 in the UK.

Chris Porritt, Tesla?s vice-president of engineering, previously told Autocar: ?I expect there will be very little carry-over [from the Model S]. We?ve got to be cost-effective. We can?t use aluminium for all the [small car?s] components.? This suggests that the Model E will use mostly steel in its make-up although it will probably use bonding and rivets in its construction.

The Tesla Model 3 will compete in an increasingly crowded segment, taking on the likes of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, Audi A4BMW 3-series, Jaguar XE, Lexus IS and Mercedes C-Class.

Tesla?s chief designer, Franz von Holzhausen, has previously told Autocar the Model 3 will boast more distinctive styling than the relatively conventional Model S.

?We will become more experimental as we develop as a brand,? he said. ?Our cars need to have some personality.?

Tesla insiders have also revealed that the Model 3 has been engineered to accommodate a number of different bodystyles if the manufacturer decides to make them. As well as traditional estate and coupe options, company bosses have previously talked about making a Tesla pick-up.

The seven-seat Tesla Model X SUV will go on sale in the US later this year, ahead of UK sales early in 2016.

In addition, an all-new Tesla Roadster is under development for launch in 2019.

2015 Fiat 500 1.2 review
First UK test of Fiat's best-selling city car, which has been overhauled for 2015 This season?s must-have fashion accessory. For the autumn/winter 2015 collection, the Fiat 500 has undergone more than 1900 changes. Yes, really; squint really hard and you might even be able to spot a few of them. Five points for noticing those new headlights, a gold star for picking out those new bumpers.Fiat has quite deliberately applied the ?if it ain?t broke, don?t fix it? approach (other clichés are available) in overhauling the 500. But when it still looks as fresh and cool as this, why tamper with the formula?Of those 1900 changes, which account for some 40% of the car, not all are trim and spec tweaks aimed at the fashionistas. The engineers have got their hands dirty tweaking the suspension to improved the comfort and handling, bigger brakes have been fitted and the launch range of petrol engines has been revised to boost economy and reduce emissions.We?ve already sampled the 0.9 Twinair version in Italy, so now it?s time to test the best-selling 1.2 normally aspirated model on our capital?s streets.

BTCC preview - Sam Tordoff's fast lap of Rockingham
The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship moves to Rockingham this weekend. Here's how to master the circuit

Sam Tordoff planted his Triple Eight Racing MG6 GT on pole position for last season?s rounds at Rockingham on his way to two podium finishes. He talks us around the part-banked circuit just outside Corby in Northamptonshire.

?Turn one is flat," says Tordoff "but it certainly is twitchy bum time. It's a corner you build up to through the weekend ? you certainly don?t go flat through it the first time you take it in free practice. You have to nail it in qualifying, but the wall on the outside of the track comes up really fast.

?You're on the rev limiter going down to the hairpin. You are right on the right-hand side of the track and it is very wide. You're flat in sixth and you have to pick your spot to bang the gearbox down to second for the hairpin ? it's very easy to overshoot here.

?Coming out of the hairpin you approach the right-hander at Yentwood. You'll see that I take a lot of kerb on the exit here because it's followed by an incline, which means you have to keep up as much momentum as possible as you come out of the corner. There are some nice kerbs at Rockingham and I think everyone uses that one.

"After you crest the small incline you're in Chapman corner, another right-hander. I always find this very hard because it's a compromise.

?You have to take as much kerb on the inside as you dare, but you don?t go in quite as hard as you can because you can?t wash out on the exit. You have to haul the car over to the right-hand side of the circuit for the following left-hander, which comes up quickly. There are three left-hand corners in quick succession and they flow in to one corner. It just goes on and on.

"You'll see that there are several apices to hit as you turn and no car I have ever driven feels truly planted around this turn ? which I guess makes it a great section of track. Later on in the races, when the tyres have started to wear, it becomes a real struggle and can cause drivers to lose a lot of pace.

?Following on from that you come to Gracelands, which is a very fast left-hander with a nice kerb to use on the exit. Then you get ready for the Tarzan right-handed hairpin. There are two schools of thought about how to tackle the corner. You?ll see that on my qualifying lap, I turned in early and decided to run out wide on the exit, where you can use some of the pit lane entrance of the racing school garages. Some drivers like to go in a bit deeper and then square off the corner to put the power down on the exit a bit earlier.

?After the School Straight you're into the Brook complex, which is a left-right-left sequence. The corners come at you very quickly and you'll see that I got a lot of air on the right-hander ? which wasn?t deliberate! On the exit, there are two ideas about what you do. Some cars run up high to the wall on the exit, making the angle shallower, whereas others take the last left-hander a little but slower and then straighten up the exit to power to the line.

"Last year, in the front-wheel-drive MG, I chose the former. This year I'm driving a rear-wheel-drive BMW and that might not be the best approach.

?It is all about learning in the BTCC, and I will be doing plenty more of that this weekend.?

2015 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack DSG review
Volkswagen reveals the second generation of its high-riding Passat Alltrack estate The second-generation Volkswagen Passat Alltrack.Unveiled at the Geneva motor show back in March, the high-riding four-wheel-drive estate is planned to head into UK showrooms in October at an entry-level price close to the £23,845 of the first-generation model that has been on sale here since 2013.Based on the sharply styled eighth-generation Passat Estate, the new Passat Alltrack is set apart from its sibling by a series of subtle exterior styling changes similar to those adopted by its predecessor.Most apparent are the unique front bumper, which receives a silver plastic scuff plate and black plastic valance panel, and the integrated foglights on higher-end versions.Further changes include the addition of Alltrack badges on the grille and front wings, silver and black mirror housings, integrated roof rails, black cladding within the wheelarches and along the sills and a new rear bumper with a black plastic valance panel housing trapezoidal-shaped chromed tailpipes.The Passat Alltrack is also fitted with superior underbody protection and, with new springs and dampers, boasts a ride height of 174mm ? 28mm more than that of the standard Passat Estate. Wheels are 17in as standard, although 18in rims, as fitted to our test car, or even larger 19s are optional.  The Passat Alltrack will be offered with two petrol and three diesel engines, although a decision on which units will come to the UK remains to be confirmed. On the petrol side is a base 148bhp 1.4-litre engine and a gutsier 217bhp 2.0. The diesels include 148bhp (as tested here), 187bhp and 237bhp versions of Volkswagen's 2.0 TDI engine.As with the first-generation Passat Alltrack, this second-generation model features an electro-mechanical multi-plate clutch 4Motion four-wheel drive system as standard. Models running the range-topping 237bhp petrol and 237bhp diesel engines also receive VW?s XDS+ electronic differential system, which provides selective braking to the front wheels for added traction.
