Audi E-tron GT:

Due for release in 2020, the E-tron GT will be up against the Tesla Model S P100D and Porsche Taycan in the electric sports saloon segment. 

It is expected be revealed in concept form in LA. Range is understood to be similar to that of the E-tron SUV’s 248 miles, but the GT will aim to cut the larger car’s 5.5sec 0-60mph time almost in half to remain competitive with its direct rivals.

Bentley Continental GT Convertible:

Spotted in testing at the Nürburgring earlier this year, Bentley’s new Continental GT Convertible is set to make its debut in LA. 

Although the convertible is due to be launched exclusively with the W12 engine that already powers the coupé variant, a lighter V8 version will follow. The new model swaps the first generation’s Volkswagen Phaeton underpinnings for those of the Porsche Panamera, in an effort to make this Bentley’s sportiest drop-top yet. 


BMW’s range-topping SUV will be making its public debut at the LA motor show. The largest model in BMW’s revamped line-up, the X7 will be up against the Land Rover Discovery and Mercedes-Benz GLS in the large SUV segment. 

With prices starting from £72,155 for the entry-level xDrive30d, the X7 is aimed at luxury-driven markets in regions such as the Middle East and China. As such, four-zone air conditioning and electric seats all round come as standard.
