RPM TV Schedule 13 July 2016: Ford Focus RS. Audi R8 V10 Plus. Lexus RC200T. Long-term Audi Q3
The action in the superhatch segment has never been hotter – and the brand new Ford Focus RS looks set to be one of the best. We put it through its paces.
The R8 supercar has been one of Audi’s success stories, finding 27 000 buyers in nine years of production. The new, second-generation R8 is keener, more advanced, and more engaging. We drive the Audi R8 V10 Plus at the reimagined Kyalami Grand Prix circuit.
The Lexus RC coupé may be a striking car, but the RC350 didn’t offer the expected verve. Can the smaller-engined, turbocharged Lexus RC200t make amends? We find out. Meanwhile our long-term Audi Q3 1.4 TFSI is impressing us with its versatility, urge and open-road economy.
On the news front, we take a look at the thrilling Mercedes-AMG GT-R, and the all-new Porsche Panamera.
