If there is one thing everyone can be excited about, its cars. They look fancy, get you from A to B, and otherwise impress your friends with their flashiness. That is why car enthusiasts are especially excited about 2020, given that so many flashy new cars are due for release. Will the new models get you from A to B faster, or otherwise impress your friends even beyond the expected norm? Will you be able to play Blackjack online on the car’s on-board computer? Perhaps.
Let’s take a look at a few upcoming car models in 2020 that are sure to impress even the most sceptical of enthusiasts.
Alfa Romeo Tonale
What is this, you’re saying, a new release from Alfa Romeo that isn’t the promised GTV and 8C? Shameful sacrilege. Yes, sadly the much touted grand rebirth of Alpha Romeo has been cut back by a rather significant amount, which means that many of the planned models have been put on hold. What the company is offering instead is the Tonale, which certainly looks impressive at first glance.
Will it make up for broken promises, and ease the seething disappointment of those who were banking on a GTV? Maybe. We shall all just have to wait in anticipation and find out.
Aston Martin Vantage Roadster
If ever there was a car that would explode the brains of your friends with pure envy, it has to be the Aston Martin Vantage. But wait, there is more. In 2020 the Vantage is undergoing a major change, and the result is nothing short of envy brain explosion turned up to 1,000. Yes, the Vantage is becoming a Vantage Roadster, which means that it now has no roof.
A closer look reveals a twin-turbo V8 engine borrowed from Mercedes, capable of an eye watering 503bhp. Did you want it, only to discover that it doesn’t come in seven speed manual? Well rest easy, because word is that plans are to release a seven speed manual version soon.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show there should have been an announcement of 3 series, G30 version of the BMW M3, right? Yes, we were thinking the exact same thing. But calm your anxiety, because chances are almost certain that such a creation will be debuting in 2020. What’s more is that the release will likely make use of the new S58 straight-six.
You haven’t already passed out from sheer excitement? Then let us help you along to hitting the floor; there will also be a four-wheel drive version, the first in the 33 year long history of the model.
Ford Puma ST
Now look, everyone just relax and take a deep breath. We know that the idea of a Puma ST is nothing short of a blight against the sanctity of automotive history. But hear us out; we see this interesting creation as something like a spiritual successor to the Ford Racing Puma. Yes, we’re serious. With the inner workings of a Fiesta ST stashed in there, the result is sure to be something that will defy expectations.
Just stick with us on this one, wait for it, and we’ll all decide then. Okay?
Lexus LC F
When we had a spin in the Lexus LC 500, we were somewhat impressed. Yes, it was clearly designed with luxury long distance travel in mind, but we still enjoyed the experience. Though, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a more streamlined, sleek model available?
It’s almost as if Lexus read our minds. The Lexus LC F is here to scratch that itch, offering up all the expected luxury design choices of the previous iteration, but with a sharper visual appeal that is sure to impress your social circle to no end. Though, don’t come to us when you’re bankrupt and living off lentils. Which is to say; it won’t be cheap.
Mercedes S Class
Last; the Mercedes S Class. The previous offering by Mercedes was so packed with tech gadgets and features that we’re, frankly, just interested to see how they intend on upping the ante. Only time will tell, but rumours abound that the new model will have electronic pop-out door handles already seen in the latest Maybach derivative, so it sounds promising.
