Lamborghini
And now there’s two! After the Aventador, the Huracan now stands out! Under the hood, the 5.2-liter V10 and 610 hp is distributed across the four wheels. The result is 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 s and does 324 km/h on a closed circuit.

LEXUS
The RC F has a new 5-litre 477 hp engine and 530 N.m of torque: the most powerful Lexus V8. RC F replaces the IS F and guarantees a hair-raising performance. Ultimate driving pleasure… As for the RX, the fourth generation model is 4.89 meters long and inspired by the curves of the NX. It comes with 300 hp and a 3.5-litre Eurosuper and an electric engine. That’s what we call hybrid in the motoring business!  For the first time in Belgium, we also welcome the new GS F, RC 200t and 300h and the GS with 300 hp and 450 hp.

Maserati
Maserati shows off its Quattroporte, Ghibli, GranTurismo and GranCabrio. No place for little engines since the power of these jewels from Modena fluctuates between 275 and 530 hp. Mechanically beautiful and aesthetically sublime: the sign of the Trident.

McLaren
After the 650 S Coupé and Spider, here come the 570 S and 540 S Coupés. An ultra-light chassis made of carbon-fibre technology from Formula 1, the 540 relies on a mid-engine 3.8-litre V8 Bi-turbo. As its monogram indicates, it generates 540 horsepower at 7,500 rev/min and a torque of 540 Nm at 3,500-6,500 rev/min, for a maximum speed of 320km/h. As for the 570 S, no less than 570 hp is on the cards. An excellent motoring experience.
