As well as the aforementioned Porsche Cayman RS shootout, we also drove the £1.7million Ferrari Daytona SP3 at Le Mans. Combining the carbon bin of the LaFerrari with the 6.5-litre V12 of the 812 Competizione seems like a winning recipe, but does it justify the stratospheric price?
We also get hands-on experience with a prototype of the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV, as well as Paul Stephens’ 993R restomod.
Meanwhile, the flagship Porsche 911 Turbo S is also undertaking our full road test to see if it can match the Audi R8 and Ferrari Roma as a GT car.

Meanwhile, John Evans visits Platts Garage in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. This is one of the few remaining gas stations where you can save yourself the hassle of filling up your car, by having someone else do it.
Steve Cropley reflects on the 2022 Festival of the Unexceptional and the surprising age of many of its attendees, while Matt Prior laments the sale of Alpina to BMW.
