The OCTAVIA RS’s sleek and sporty design and accessories make it unmistakable. Unlike the other OCTAVIA versions, the RS has a reworked front and rear bumper, as well as the RS logo, of course. Many of the body details, such as the radiator grille, front and rear bumper diffusers, external rear-view mirror covers and side window trims have a glossy black paint finish. The RS model’s sporty nature is reflected in its interior as well. Highlights include sports seats with integrated headrests and Alcantara leather upholstery, while a new feature is the multi-function three-spoke steering wheel emblazoned with the RS logo. The pedals feature aluminium décor and parts of the upholstery have decorative red or silver-grey stitching.
Audi Q5 Sportback Exterior Design
Following the Q3 Sportback and the e-tron Sportback, Audi now presents its third crossover utility vehicle, or CUV: the Q5 Sportback. This coupé with dynamic lines addresses customers who appreciate not just an expressive design and technical innovation but also a sporty character and a high level of everyday usability. Topping the line is the SQ5 Sportback TDI. Its three-liter TDI offers concentrated power of 251 kW (341 PS) and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of torque. The Audi Q5 Sportback exudes a powerful presence as is typical for the Q models from Audi. Large air inlets flank the octagonal Singleframe. The headlights with their distinctive daytime running light signature feature LED or optional Matrix LED technology. The continuous, elegantly sweeping shoulder line emphasizes the wheels and with them the quattro all-wheel drive. The side sill trim on the doors imbues the CUV with stability and robustness. The greenhouse extends low over the body and begins its downward slope early so that the third side window tapers sharply to the rear. The starkly sloped rear window and the seemingly high-mounted rear bumper give the Q5 Sportback a dynamic and powerful appearance.

The Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica made its dynamic premiere on both road and circuit in Valencia, Spain at the end of June, putting the handling and performance of the latest Lamborghini Huracan model to the test in all environments. The three souls of this super sports car – easy every-day driving; sporty fun-to-drive; and high-performing track-day car - were explored in downtown Valencia, on the Spanish mountain roads and on the Circuit Ricardo Tormo. The Tecnica’s unique characteristics deliver a sporty, lifestyle super sports car for both road and track. The Tecnica takes the engine and track prowess of the Huracan STO to deliver a rear-wheel drive car with rear-wheel steering, alongside a 10kg weight reduction; a power increase of 30 CV; improved aerodynamics; rear downforce increased by 35%; and drag reduced by 20%, compared to the Huracan EVO rear-wheel drive model.
