Jannarelly Design-1, 2017 Nissan GT-R at Spa, 2018 Mercedes A-Class: This Week’s Top Photos

Sports car startup Jannarelly this week unveiled its gorgeous Design-1 roadster. The best part is that Jannarelly, based in Dubai, is hoping to get the car into U.S. showrooms for just $55k. It sure would be a tasty track toy.

This week we spent some time behind the wheel of the 2017 Porsche Macan GTS. Those three letters aren’t just about extra trim. The Macan GTS is simply the best-handling SUV in production. We’ve compiled a list of the eight main reasons that make that possible.

Another car we recently drove was the 2017 Nissan GT-R. We took to Belgium’s legendary Spa-Francorchamps racetrack to learn the ins and outs of the car. Godzilla is sporting its most substantial updates since arriving on the market for the 2009 model year, but rather than performance the focus this time has been on refinement. Of course, there’s still some extra power on tap.

Mercedes-Benz this week took the wraps off the new E-Class Wagon, a car with numerous standard features to improve the ownership experience. We’re still waiting for the reveal of the Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon, which we’re glad to report has been confirmed for sale in the United States. Sadly, we won’t be getting the E43 mid-ranger.

Another Mercedes we won’t be seeing—most likely—is the next-generation A-Class. A prototype was just spotted and reveals that the popular hatch will be growing in size. The debut is expected to take place in 2018.

When you think powerful cars out of Italy, forget the likes of Ferrari [NYSE:RACE], Lamborghini and Pagani. The maker of the most powerful road car in Italy is Mazzanti, which this week unveiled its 1,000-horsepower Evantra Millecavalli. Take a look at that crazy aero.

Fiat has a new sports car on sale this year and we’ve just driven it. It’s called the 124 Spider and it’s the spiritual successor to the 124 from fifty years ago. This time around, Fiat turned to Mazda to help build the car. The 124 Spider is based on the bones of Mazda’s MX-5 Miata but there’s a number of key differences.

Mercedes-Benz’s G-Class is receiving a few updates for the 2017 model year. Confirmed this week, one of the updates will be the introduction of the rugged G550 4×4², which comes complete with 17-inch ground clearance, an extra-wide track, and a twin-turbocharged V-8.
