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

 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.

Mercedes C-class cabriolet in development for 2015 launch
Mercedes C-class cabriolet in development for 2015 launch Latest C-class lune-up expands with new soft-top cabriolet, which will use carried-over engines from the saloon

Mercedes-Benz is speeding up development of the upcoming C-class cabriolet ahead of a planned launch mid-way through next year.

Likely to make its debut at the Frankfurt motor show next September, these latest images show the C-class cabriolet retains the latest C-class' large front grille and headlight clusters. 

The new model is likely to rival the BMW 3-series convertible and Audi A5 cabriolet, and will feature a folding fabric roof.

While its exact engine line-up is yet to be confimed, expect it to mirror that of the C-class saloon. Current reports also suggest that a plug-in hybrid version will also join the range later, following on from the C350 saloon which arrives next year.

A C63 AMG cabriolet is also planned, and will sit alongside saloon, estate and coupé variants when it goes on sale before the end of 2016. That model is likely to use a new twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine with around 500bhp.

Leaked images from a recent technical presentation have also given away the look of the cabriolet's interior. While keeping the same overall style and feel as the C-class saloon, the new model gets a row of secondary buttons on the centre console to control its roof functions.

Aston Martin revives Lagonda brand with new super saloon
Aston Martin revives Lagonda brand with new super saloon New luxury V12 Aston Martin saloon heralds the return of the Lagonda nameplate; limited production run destined for the Middle East

Aston Martin has resurrected its Lagonda nameplate for a small production run of limited-edition super saloons.

The new Aston Martin Lagonda, which is set to arrive in 2015, will be made available to customers on an invitation-only basis.

Styling cues come from the original Lagonda, which was designed by William Towns and launched in 1976.

Underpinning the new car is the company's VH architecture, which is used throughout its current line-up.

Official technical details have yet to be released but it is understood that the production models, like the prototype seen earlier this year, use the 5.9-litre V12 from the Rapide S.

In the Rapide, the naturally aspirated V12 produces 550bhp and 457lb ft, granting a 0-62mph time of less than 5.0sec and a top speed of 190mph.

Power will be sent to the rear wheels, most likely via a six-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Sales are by invitation only and official pricing has not been released, with Aston Martin simply stating that "it will be commensurate with the car's exclusivity, quality and luxurious nature".

The Lagonda will also only be be offered in the Middle East due to a "specific market demand".

Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman said: "The new model, like its exclusive siblings the One-77 and V12 Zagato, has been created as a piece of exceptional automotive art.

"It has been designed and developed entirely in keeping with the spirit and ethos of previous Lagonda super saloons ? notably the William Towns Lagonda ? and as a tribute to this car it proudly bears the Lagonda nameplate."

At its 1976 launch the Lagonda was notable for, among other things, its use of advanced technology ? including LED display panels.

The Aston Martin Lagonda, like its forebear, also makes use of modern innovations. For example, it utilises carbonfibre for its exterior panelling.

Each Lagonda will be hand built at Aston Martin's plant in Gaydon, in a building that was previously dedicated to construction of the One-77 supercar.

The new Aston Martin Lagonda follows recent bespoke projects including the £500,000 Aston Martin CC100 Speedster, production versions of which were built by the 'Q by Aston Martin' division.

Launched in 2013, the Q division is responsible for offering customers the ability to customise existing models to their own specifications, or to commission entirely bespoke cars.

An Aston Martin spokesperson had previously said that the Lagonda was part of a series of coach-built models produced by the Q division.

The company also recently secured approximately £100 million in fresh funding, which may go towards the mooted Aston Martin Lagonda SUV.

This all-new model has recently been brought back into the limelight following Aston's ongoing discussions and parts sharing deal with Mercedes-Benz.

Earlier in the year Aston Martin had trademarked an updated version of the Lagonda emblem, hinting at the imminent return of the nameplate.

The company says that the launch of the new saloon revives the Lagonda ethos of "the finest of fast cars".

More extreme Continental GT3-R possible, says Bentley design chief
More extreme Continental GT3-R possible, says Bentley design chief Luc Doncerwolke believes there's an appetite for more motorsport-inspired versions of the Continental GT3-R that could tempt younger buyers

An even more extreme version of the Bentley Continental GT3-R is possible, according to design chief Luc Doncerwolke.

The GT3-R was revealed as a range-topping performance version of the Continental at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed. The production run was limited to just 300 examples which were hand-built in Crewe and finished in Bentley?s motorsport division.

Powered by a retuned version of Bentley?s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, the Continental GT3-R produced 572bhp and 516lb ft, and was the fastest-accelerating Bentley ever, capable of reaching 60mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds.

Doncerwolke said that a more extreme, rear-wheel drive version of the GT3-R was possible and there would be an appetite for it.

"Why not?" he said, "as the GT3-R has been a success. We've sold all 300 and a lot of people would want an even more extreme one.

"I want us to celebrate our race success and have an even more extreme version, with not only an updated drive and powertrain but also new styling to closely link the race and road cars."

He also said that such a model would help bring younger buyers to Bentley: "There's a big opportunity to make more emotional cars in Bentley's future for younger people. We did it in the past and we can do it again."

Nissan reveals new high-performance Note Nismo
Nissan reveals new high-performance Note Nismo Sporty Note Nismo features an upgraded powertrain and new bodywork and will go on sale this autumn, but it won't be coming to the UK

Nissan has revealed a sporty Nismo-badged version of the new Note, although the model won't be coming to the UK.

Set to go on sale in the Japanese market in the autumn, the Note Nismo comes with an upgraded powertrain package, although Nissan hasn't released any performance details so far.

The car's tyres, suspension and bodywork are also upgraded, with a new grille seen here alongside special front and rear bumpers, side sills and a roof spoiler.

The Note Nismo also comes with custom sports seats inside, while Recaro sports seats are optional. Two grades of the car will be available, the standard Note Nismo and the Nismo S.

Describing the two models, Nissan says the Note Nismo "caters to customers who enjoy spirited driving, but who also regard fuel efficiency as an important motoring factor," while the Nismo S "is to appease the pure high-performance neeeds of the sports driver, the person who wants to experience the fruits of Nismo's motorsports heritage."

Nismo product specialist Hiroshi Tamura said: "The development concept of this model was to build a car that makes you want to keep driving, no matter where your destination may be."

Seat gears up for development of new SUV
Seat gears up for development of new SUV Spanish manufacturer's sports-utility vehicle will be "like a big brother to the Leon", say company chiefs

Seat's new SUV is on track for launch in 2016. The first development mules are soon to start testing, and the model will enter pre-production in the coming months also.

It will be pased on the MQB platform and is set to be built by sister brand Skoda in the Czech Republic. Company chief Jürgen Stackmann revealed it was unlikely to have any connection with the Leon name, despite the new model having a similar footprint to the Spanish manufacturer's family hatchback.

A Cupra version is being mulled, according to Stackmann, with research underway on how far Seat's sporty brand can be extended. Even in standard form, the SUV will still be one of the sportiest cars in its class while retaining everyday usability and practicality.

Design chief Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos revealed that design work was now complete and that it was "a big step for Seat ? the car is like a big brother to the Leon".

Stackmann said the business case was fully in place for the SUV and "industrialisation" work was now ongoing. It should add significant volumes for the brand, with the segment expected to count for around 10 per cent of all cars sold in Europe.
