We have first drive reviews of the Mercedes-AMG SL 55, the iconic two-seat sports coupe which has made a comeback in the Indian market, the mind-blowingly fast Lucid Air Sapphire, the ultra-luxurious Bentley Continental GT S, the all-new Maserati Grecale and a couple of updated SUVs — the 2023 BMW X1 and Hyundai Alcazar turbo-petrol.
The feature section is headlined by our new record for the fastest crossing of the Rann of Kutch in the VW Virtus GT. That’s not all, we’ve kicked-off a new series, which is a continuation of our popular Great Driving Roads stories, where we will be exploring all the new expressways of India. We’ve started with the one that has been in the news lately, Maharashtra’s longest expressway — the Samruddhi Mahamarg. We also have a look at Maranello’s flagship hypercar — the Ferrari SF90 XX and the prancing horse’s epic domination at the 2023 24 Hours of Le Mans. Also read about our adventure to the world’s highest tea estate with the Toyota Hilux, a trip to Goa to experience free fall in the Renault Triber and a meetup with an enthusiastic Nissan Magnite owner. And a first drive in the Aston DB12 from Monaco to France's highest road.
