Land Rover just brought back the Discovery with the release of the 2015 Land Rover discovery Sport ($38K). Make no doubt about it though, this is a tweaked LR2 with some updates. With a starting price point below $40K, the deal on this compact SUV may be too sweet to pass up. The Sport features a 4-cylinder 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that pushes 240 horses with 250 lb-ft of torque and 1750 rpm. The power plant is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The interior features stadium style seating with a sliding and reclining second-row. Only time will tell if this new entry into the CUV market will be able to hold its own the crowded market.
W Motors started out in Beirut and in 2013 they moved the company headquarters to Dubai. The first supercar from the middle east company was the Lykan Hypersport. For their follow-up, they've created the W Motors Fenyr Supersport ($TBA). The Fenyr will only be built in lots of 25 units per year. This carbon fiber beauty combines some of the most advanced aerodynamics with some of the most beautiful aesthetics.The Fenyr is powered by a custom-made flat six, 4.0L Twin Turbo that's paired with a 7-speed double clutch gearbox. This setup delivers 900 horses and a massive 885 ft. Lbs of torque. Off the line, the Fenyr will reach 62 miles per hour in just 2. 7 seconds, topping off at a hair under 250 miles per hour.The improvements in performance are contributed to a body completely made out of carbon fiber and a lightweight tubular aluminum chassis.Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but the expectation is that it will be considerably less expensive than the $3.4 million price tag on its big brother.
