The Range Rover has one of the world's great car interiors. After 40 years of Range Rover, buyers know that the Range Rover stands alone. There is no other car that can do Grouse Moor and Kensington Palace; McDonald’s and Waterside Inn; ferrying children and ferrying Royalty; Polo on Windsor Lawn and cricket on the beach – all with nothing more than a car wash in between.

BMW is marking the 30th anniversary of the M5 by building the most powerful ever version of its legendary super-saloon. The BMW M5 ‘30 Jahre M5’ has an extra 39bhp from a tweaked version of its 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8, plus there’s a smattering of special trim and anniversary badging, and just 300 will be built. Apparently ‘this power boost has been achieved through carefully calculated tweaks to the engine management and an increase in charge pressure’.
Masters students from Sweden's Umea Institute of Design recently exhibited their final-year projects at the university's annual degree show.
