Ferrari is currently testing what is believed to be the successor to the iconic LaFerrari. Spotted undergoing trials at the Fiorano circuit, the upcoming model seems to have a lower and broader stance compared to its predecessor. Speculations suggest that it might include a V-6 engine as part of its hybrid system.
In other news, Abt, renowned for its motorsport expertise and Audi collaborations, has unveiled a variant of the Audi R8. Inspired by the R8 LMS GT2, which races in the DTM series, the new model is named the XGT. This might be the final iteration of the R8, as Audi plans to phase out the supercar post-2023.
Jeep Wagoneer’s Latest Development
The 2024 Jeep Wagoneer and the more luxurious Grand Wagoneer are undergoing a significant transition. The most notable change is the replacement of the V-8 engine with an exclusive twin-turbocharged inline-6, available in two different power configurations. Additionally, Jeep intends to introduce a series plug-in hybrid system in the Wagoneer range by mid-decade, followed by a fully electric version.
