IT AIN’T OVER ‘TIL IT’S OVER! “So many tears I’ve cried, so much pain inside, but baby it ain’t over ’til it’s over,” I’m pretty sure Lenny Kravitz wrote that song about the end of the car show season, and with TRAX been and gone (see the report on page 23), it might seem like we’re done for 2019. But we’re not. In fact, the biggest show of them all is about to commence. I am of course talking about SEMA. That’s right, just after I’ve written these distinctly average words, I’m going to pop home, iron my favourite pants and jet off to Vegas. Of course, I’d much rather be here in rainy England. But I’ll stop at nothing to make sure Fast Car brings you the very latest in the world…

bmw’s concept 4

There’s something weird going on in BMW’s design studios. If you thought things were strange in the Bangle era of flame-surfacing, wait till you get a load of the mental-as-hell faces on the new models that are bleeding through. We’ll cut to the chase: it’s all about the kidney grilles. These have been a BMW design motif for generations, and they’ve usually been quite elegant; on the sharknose cars (like the E21, the 2002, the E9 and the E24) they were slender and narrow; on the 1980s and ’90s models such as the E30, E34 and E36 they were squat and purposeful – but today? They’re absolutely bloody massive. Type ‘new BMW X7’ into Google Images and see: that’s not a photoshop, it really does look like that. The new…

wrx sti just keeps getting more mental

It may not have an Impreza badge, but the VA-series WRX STI sure does share its forefather’s enthusiasm for lunatic limited-run special editions. The latest hot ticket is the WRX STI S209, and it’s an absolute headcase: it costs twice what a regular STI does, and this is because it’s set to be a genuine collector’s item – just 209 cars are being hand-built at the STI skunkworks in Kiryu, Japan. But the rarity isn’t the only thing justifying the price: that EJ25 flat-four now wears a bigger turbo running 19psi, along with bigger injectors and revised intake, resulting in 341bhp. The S209 also has stiffer dampers and shorter springs, revised anti-roll bars, and forged BBS wheels. The downside? Well, aside from that bonkers price, it’s only available in the…

mazda3 has another crack at hot hatch heroism

The Mazda3 is a car that’s been crying out for a proper hot hatch variant. Sure, the 1st- and 2nd generation models were available in fireball MPS spec, but the 3rd-gen Mazda3 was pretty wishy-washy in Europe – the most exciting one we got had 163bhp, which is OK but it’s not going to set your trousers on fire. So the 4th-gen, which launched this year, has a bit of a point to prove. And thanks to Mazda North America, that point’s being made rather loudly, because they’ve turned the unsuspecting hatchback into a balls-to-the-wall race car. It’s been built to satisfy Touring Car regs in 36 different championships across the globe, and it’s packing a 350bhp turbo motor with a paddle-shift ’box. The widebody kit is something every roadgoing…

mercedes-benz eqs has literally no corners at all

There was a time when car design was all about the angles. Back in the eighties, everything was designed with a set-square; if it’s not a right angle, it’s a wrong angle. Car design has mellowed dramatically over the years (we can probably thank the Ford Sierra for that), but it’s fair to say that the new EQS concept from Mercedes-Benz is the first car we’ve seen which has absolutely no corners or creases at all. It’s like a silky pebble, smoothed by the flowing current of a mighty river. What this is, basically, is a vision of what S-Class Mercs will be in the future – super-luxurious, and fully electric. The EQS boasts an electric drivetrain with torque-vectored AWD, serving up 470bhp and 560lb/ft. And it’s properly eco-friendly too –…
