Last year, Aston Martin revealed that they will build 25 new Bond DB5s.

These cars will cost £2.75 million before tax and will feature gadgets developed with help from a chap called Chris Corbould, a special effects genius who worked on Inception and The Dark Knight. Oh, and the last fifteen James Bond films. Except Octopussy. Maybe that’s why it was a bit rubbish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡️ Here Chris talks us through the gadgets. Swipe left for the specifics.

Time for a Japanese battle royale as the Honda NSX takes on the Nissan GT-R. But not any GT-R. Godzilla has hit the gym and got swole thanks to Litchfield. So who will win? There’s only one way to find out...

Straight outta the west side (of Bradford), MZR Roadsports take Seventies Datsun Z cars and bring them bang up to date through the magic of restomod. They’re just some of the old-school creations featured in the all-new Retro section of this month’s Top Gear magazine, on sale now. Buy your copy via the link in our bio. 📷 @mark_scenemedia

It’s normally a few months *after* a car goes on sale that potty tuners get their grubby hands on them and start sending power figures into the stratosphere. Not the new Supra. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The A90 isn’t even on sale yet, but Japanese tuners have already gone to town on it. First job on the list? Siphon the BMW blood from it and spit it out. So goodbye BMW-sourced 3.0-litre turbo and hello legendary and bulletproof JDM heart: the Toyota 2JZ from the MkIV Supra.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Things will get a lot crazier from here as the rest of the tuning world already has its angle grinders and gas axes ready in anticipation. Who knows, this might just be the tuner’s tuning car of the decade. Just like its daddy was.

Welcome, one and all, back to Japan - a land filled with amazing cars and amazing people who tune cars. And this one’s Amazing. Capital A. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is, in short, a classic Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC (rolling alongside a rather lovely 190R, we might add), decked out with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo engine from a Mark IV Toyota Supra. That’s the fabled 2JZ engine. Made famous by some film, we can’t remember the name. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here’s the new McLaren. A McLaren for a fresh purpose. A car to be used more often, and be driven for longer distances. More convenient and comfortable than others. This is the McLaren GT, a sporty cruiser to take on the Aston Martin DB11, the Ferrari Portofino, the Porsche 911 Turbo S, and the faster, now more focused Bentley Continental. 
Now, let Top Gear be your guide to Woking’s new 612bhp wafter. Watch the full video on the TG YouTube channel.

Here’s the unfathomably affordable Dacia Duster, doing what it was born to do, on home tarmac in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains. Proof that you don’t need big-budget machinery for a slightly exotic adventure. Ten grand plus a roofbox should do it...

To celebrate the Mini’s 60th birthday, Chris Harris got behind the wheel of one at this year’s Goodwood Members’ Meeting. Not having driven a Mini since he first owned one 25 years ago, @harrismonkey grabbed the 130bhp, 600kg midget gem tin-top by the scruff of its neck to skate around the fast-flowing circuit at an average of 90mph per lap. Which, considering the top speed is only 120mph, is a little bit terrifying. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

See how it handled on the Top Gear YouTube channel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
