Top and flop: the good and bad car news of week 29

+ Top: The Aston Martin Valhalla has 950 horsepower. Fortunately!

Forget the concept car AM-RB-003, because the Aston Martin Valhalla has become a completely different car. Or well: there is still 950 horsepower left in the production model of the 1000 horsepower that Aston Martin promised at the unveiling of the study model. Fortunately!


+ Top: the new Audi RS3 makes the Mercedes-AMG 45 S 4Matic+ sweat.

The new Audi RS 3 Sportback and Limousine may not have as much power as the Mercedes-AMG 45 S 4Matic+, but they are faster! Another reason to choose the Audi is its fantastic five-cylinder turbo engine. For us the RS 3 Sportback and the RS 3 Limousine please!


+ Top: the Polestar 2 Standard Range Single Motor is for economical types

This week colleague Bart subjected the Polestar 2 Standard Range Single Motor to an economy test, and came to the conclusion that this new entry-level variant with single electric motor and 224 hp uses the power supply considerably more efficiently than the twin-engine Polestar 2 Long Range with 408 hp.


– Flop: One more facelift (and price increase) before the all-electric Macan arrives

The next generation of the Porsche Macan will be fully electric. But before that happens, Porsche sends the current model one last time to the plastic surgeon. The Macan got more power, but the 440 hp Macan GTS also became considerably more expensive. 10,000 euros no less!


– Flop: vacation time, cucumber time…

The summer months are quiet months in the car world. There is not a lot of big news to report, simply because there is no big news. They also want to go on holiday in the PR and marketing departments of the car industry. The cucumber season usually also means that a deluge of car news is coming. After the holidays, the new model year is ushered in, and the news breaks loose. Those who stay at home on the editorial board of Autoreview.nl can’t wait for the time to come!
