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.

2015 Vauxhall Adam Grand Slam name changed to Adam S
New Vauxhall Adam S gets 148bhp

The production version of the Vauxhall Adam S goes on sale in March
More potent version of Adam supermini drops Grand Slam badge in favour of Adam S to avoid confusion

Vauxhall's direct rival to the Abarth 595 Turismo has changed its name from Adam Grand Slam to Adam S to avoid confusion for its customers. It's on sale now with a starting price of £16,995.

Powering the Adam S is a turbocharged version of the existing 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine, which develops 148bhp and 162lb ft. Vauxhall says the performance Adam can reach 62mph in 8.5sec, with a top speed of 124mph. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.

Official fuel economy is rated at 47.8mpg combined, with CO2 emissions of 139g/km.

Styling changes over the standard Adam include a body kit, tuned chassis, uprated springs and dampers and VXR brakes borrowed from the previous-generation Corsa VXR. The model sits on 18in alloy wheels.

Inside, the Adam S features special floor mats, pedals and door trim. Vauxhall's Intellilink infotainment system features on the options list, as do Recaro seats.

Although weight-saving measures on the Adam S include a cast iron engine block with hollow frame structure, hollow-cast camshafts and a plastic intake manifold, the car's kerb weight is set at 1178kg - 58kg heavier than the Adam 1.4 Slam.

The Adam S was first seen in pre-production form at the Geneva motor show last March, when it was badged as Adam S before its short-lived change to Grand Slam for UK markets.

Vauxhall UK boss Tim Tozer says the Adam S "has been designed for people who want to enjoy a sporty driving experience in a car with a unique and individual look".

The Adam S also rules out any VXR-badged version of the Adam being made.

Audi Q8 and electric Q6 confirmed as part of new product push

Audi has shown a teaser image of the Q6 at its annual press conference
Audi boss Rupert Stadler confirms range-topping Q8 will launch in 2019, and will be preceded by the electric Q6 in 2018

Audi has confirmed a new electric SUV, likely to be badged Q6, will join its growing line-up of SUV models in 2018, with a larger, range-topping Q8 model to follow in 2019.

Speaking at the firm's annual conference, Audi boss Rupert Stadler said the company's range would expand from its current line-up of 52 models to 60 by the end of the decade. As well as the Q6 and Q8, Audi's SUV range will also be bolstered by the arrival of the Q1 in 2016.

Alongside its extra models, Audi will also benefit from an extra ?24 billion worth of investment, to be spent between 2015 and 2019. Audi says 70% of that investment will be put into developing new models and technologies.

Audi's new Q6 is based on the same basic MLB platform as the Q7, but it is built around a battery pack which could be as large as 100kWh - bigger than the 90kWh battery in the new R8 e-tron.

The R8 e-tron has a predicted range of 280 miles, so the bluffer and less aerodynamic Q6 is expected to have a range of at least 250 miles on a full charge.

Speaking to Autocar, Stadler said that regulations in eight US states requiring 15% of new cars to be electric by 2025 have ensured that premium car makers will have to "build a range of all-electric vehicles".

As Tesla established, it is customers at the top of the market who are most in tune with the idea of limited-range electric vehicles. Premium priced electric vehicles also make more sense for car makers, which need to accommodate costly battery packs in the factory cost of the car.

Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi?s research and development boss, told the annual press conference in 2014 that the Q6 was currently under development and that the final styling would take much from the Prologue concept car. The new A6, A7 and A8 models will also share design traits with the Prologue.

He added that MLB platform had been designed from the outset to be flexible enough to accommodate a battery pack as well as plug-in hybrid and gas tanks for natural gas power.

Hackenberg also revealed that the next generation Audi A4, which is based on the smallest version of the MLB platform and due to be seen later this year, will also come as a gas-powered version, dubbed the g-tron.

The crossover Q6 SUV will challenge the likes of the BMW X6, Range Rover Sport and the Mercedes-Benz GLE. It is also aimed directly at the upcoming Tesla Model X SUV, which is due to be launched later this year. Like the Tesla, the Q6 e-tron will have electric motors driving the front and rear wheels.

"When the Q6 arrives," said Hackenberg. "It will be something new, following designs established on the Prologue concept [revealed at the LA show]. It will be positioned as something more emotional and more sporty than the Q7. The Q7 will be a car for seven people, the Q6 will be more coupé-like."

The Q7 will be one of the last Audis with the current design language. Hackenberg said he and new chief designer Marc Lichte arrived at the firm too late from Volkswagen to influence the look. To that end, the Q8 will have some visual differentation to the Q7 both inside and out. 

Audi Q8 to follow electric Q6

The upmarket Q8 forms a crucial part of Audi?s growth strategy that will see it extend its line-up.

?We see a great deal of potential, particularly in the SUV segment and in the especially prestigious full-size category,? said Stadler earlier this year. 

The Q8 has been conceived to extend Audi?s reach at the top of its line-up and to provide the company with added sales in potentially crucial markets such as China, the Middle East and the United States.

In terms of performance and technology, the Q8 is described as being on a par with Audi?s A8 flagship saloon, albeit with the added ability to head off-road thanks to its raised ride height and, on top-end models, adjustable air suspension. 

Ingolstadt?s big new SUV, which will have an overall length of more than five metres, has a projected price range of between £50,000 for an entry-level turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol model and £90,000 for a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 RS Q8 flagship.

A range of V6 and V8 petrol and diesel engines will be offered, alongside plug-in hybrids and an electric version. 

The Q8 is set to receive its own, unique five-door body styled under the stewardship of Marc Lichte. Among the various elements expected to set it apart from the more practical second-generation Q7 is a racier front end with a more sporting grille, more obvious tapering around each corner, shallower side glass, a generously sloping roofline and a more heavily angled rear window. Unlike the traditional, bluff off-roader styling employed by the Q7, the Q8 will be much sleeker.

The five-door hatchback Q8 will have a higher waistline, lower roofline and shallower side windows than its Q7 sister model and will be available in both five and seven-seat configurations.

The basis for the Q8 is the second-generation MLB (modular longitudinal architecture) platform. The structure forms part of a family of platforms, the development of which is being led by Audi. It is set to underpin a wide range of upmarket SUVs, including the new Q7, the third-generation Porsche Cayenne, the third-gen Volkswagen Touareg and the Bentley Bentayga.

The Q8 and Bentley will be the plushest and most premium of the SUVs, but Stadler believes the pair won?t clash, as ?Bentley can?t fill the gap? of less than £100,000 into which the range-topping Q8 will be pitched. 

Insiders say the MLB structure has far greater flexibility than that used today, with added scope for variability within the wheelbase and track widths in a move that, it is suggested, will lead to a wider differentiation between the models planned by the Volkswagen Group?s various brands.  

The key development, however, is the adoption of aluminium, thinner-gauge high-strength steel and carbonfibre-reinforced plastic, which together promise to bring a significant reduction in weight of up to 300kg in the Q7 and a kerb weight below 2000kg for the base Q8.

2016 Audi SQ7 spotted - first pictures
Performance version of Audi's range-topping SUV to arrive in 2016, powered by twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 with 414bhp

These are the first pictures of the new Audi SQ7, a performance version of the Ingolstadt firm?s range-topping SUV.

Due to arrive in 2016, the SQ7 is expected to feature a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre diesel V8 with around 414bhp and 664lb ft. Power will be sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

That?s less power than the old 6.0-litre V12 diesel engine available in the previous-generation Q7, in which it produced 493bhp and 738lb ft. That model was capable of reaching a top speed of 155mph, with a 0-62mph sprint time of 5.5sec. The new SQ7 is expected to beat both those benchmarks.

The SQ7?s engine will be assisted by an electric turbocharger, which is designed to boost low-end response before the V8's twin turbochargers take over.

Audi?s electric turbocharger technology, first unveiled on the RS5 TDI-e concept earlier this year, requires the use of a new 48-volt electrical architecture, which will make its debut on the SQ7.

The new electrical architecture will then be used on the next A8 and A6, both due in 2017.

Visual differences between this early test mule and the regular Q7 are slight, but new twin exhaust outlets can be seen at the rear, while bespoke dials - which include the SQ7 name - can be seen inside. The mule also appears to ride significantly lower than the regular Q7, suggesting tweaks to its suspension systems.

New Ultra engine for Audi A3 range
Audi A3 Ultra brings CO2 emissions down to 89g/km and boosts economy

The new Audi A3 1.6 TDI Ultra is now available, with CO2 emissions down to a new low of 89g/km for the hatchback range.

The new model also boasts combined fuel economy of 83.1mpg in both three-door and five-door Sportback versions. The three-door gets from 0-62mph in 10.5sec, while the Sportback takes 10.7sec. Both have an official top speed of 124mph.

The A3 Ultra models come with low-rolling-resistance tyres on five-spoke 16in alloy wheels and sports suspension as standard. To aid its focus on economy, several items of equipment are not available even as an option. A tyre-inflation kit replaces the space-saver spare wheel while neither a panoramic glass sunroof or a tow bar are offered on the economy-focused model.

The A3 1.6 TDI Ultra SE and SE Technik models take the place of the 1.6 TDI SE and SE Technik models, while the Sport and S line versions remain unchanged.

Pricing for the new Ultra models starts at £20,865 - a £40 increase over the outgoing non-Ultra version. The SE Technik starts at £21,615 while the Sportback version of both trims adds £620 to the price. Buyers can now order the Ultra models for delivery in August.
