Autocar magazine 17 May – out now

This week: Ford GT – is it a Ferrari beater? We test how the dieselgate fix is affecting Volkswagens; Hyundai’s first hot hatch driven

In this week’s Autocar, we reveal whether the Ford GT is a Ferrari beater with our first drive of the 647bhp supercar, before looking at the used car market for Britain’s best half-price heroes.
Volkswagen owners involved in the dieselgate scandal will want to read our special investigation into how the new software could affect their car – our findings are not too promising.
And in other NOx related news, we examine the government’s plans to cut diesel pollution.

Also in this issue
Now back to the good news – there’s a more powerful BMW M5 to look forward this year and we drive an early prototype to experience its advanced all-wheel drive system.
Hyundai’s first hot hatch, the i30N shows promise too, while the latest Suzuki Swift is subjected to a full Autocar road test.
Then we take a look at David Brown’s Mini Remastered.

Our cars
It’s a sad farewell to our much-loved BMW i8, which has proved the future is very bright for electrified supercars.
Could the 5.0-litre V8 Ford Mustang be much more contrasting? Probably not, so we ask what the point of trying to achieve 30mpg is.
Then we take our Porsche 911 Carrera S onto a circuit for some proper track hooning.
Summer is nearly upon us so we turn to the classifieds and examine some of the best bargain drop-tops.

Or perhaps you’d prefer a sticky tyre-wearing hot hatch to make the most of warm tarmac? We’ve got that covered too with a Renault Sport Mégane R26.R.
