The new cars from Mercedes-Benz now sport new bumpers with a silver, black or chrome trim strip, a diamond radiator grille in black (as standard) and new light-allow wheels. Inside the car, the cabin comes with new seat covers and trim parts, as well as chrome-plated controls. Additionally, both cars have the option of being fitted with LED High Performance headlamps.

3. Ferrari GTC4Lusso T

The Prancing Horse’s first four-seater to be bestowed with the all-powerful V8 turbo engine, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T boasts a maximum output of a whopping 610bhp.
