2020 is certainly set out to be an exciting time for the car industry. Unsurprisingly, we will start anticipating future releases from the world’s top car manufacturers. Whether you’re always on the lookout for the latest models, or perhaps are wanting to invest your money in the top offerings from manufacturers next year, experts in the motoring industry and car financers, the Classic Car Finance Team at Cambridge & Counties Bank have put together their list of the most anticipated cars of 2020.
New Maserati Sports Car
Italian luxury vehicle manufacturer Maserati have long been known for their stunning and extraordinary cars, and 2020 gives way to an eagerly anticipated new sports car. With a new powertrain built entirely by Maserati in-house, we expect this car to be some form of hybrid in line with current trends. Being without a flagship car for some time since separating from Ferrari, it’s a highly anticipated release from the Italian firm. While there have only been glimpses of the test mule, we expect this to be seen without camouflage in May 2020 and by all accounts this should be a real thing of beauty!
Final BMW M2 CS Run Out
The M2 from BMW has become a bit of a cult classic over the years; this final run out edition will be around £75,000 and come equipped with a variety of features, including 444bhp, a top speed of 174mph and 0-60 in 4 seconds. The aesthetics of the car are nothing to turn away from either, with a range of exterior upgrades such as the extensive use of carbon fibre around the vehicle. A truly exciting release, which we expect should begin manufacturing process in around March.
Aston Martin DBX SUV
Joining the likes of Bentley, Maserati, Lamborghini and Porsche, Aston Martin are finally producing their first ever SUV. Seen for the first time in November 2019, this car does look very special indeed. With their spacious interiors, high ride, strong demand and the ability to make more money for manufacturers, it’s no wonder Aston Martin have finally taken the plunge in to the SUV market. Early reviews of this car have been glowing, and we expect it to have a tweaked version of the V8 engine from the current Aston Martin Vantage. If you’re an avid petrol head, Aston Martin producing an SUV may have you surprised, but this isn’t the end for sports car manufacturers dipping their toe in the market as Ferrari have announced they’re also launching an SUV in 2022, so keep a look out for a future anticipated cars list!
This is definitely a car to have on your radar. This pure electric sports car will produce around
1900bhp, it’s said to accelerate to 0-60mph in less than 2 seconds! The legendary styling house of Pininfarina who over time have designed some of the most beautiful Ferraris of all time, have styled this car with ultimate precision and will feature ample carbon fibre throughout. Although styled in Germany, this car will be made in Italy with the powertrain from Rimac, a Croatian firm. Expected to cost around £2 million, to date, 50 of these cars have already been snapped up, and with a limited production line of only 150 being made, that’s a third gone already.
Like Ferraris of the past, this new Roma will be incredibly beautiful, but with comfort also considered throughout the design. This new V8 GT for 2020 is their first car more focussed on the GT than the likes of previous models of the F12 and 812 Superfast. With bold styling, this elegant supercar is bound to capture new audiences around the world.
Costing a cool £1.425 million the newest in the Ultimate series from McLaren has numerous exciting features. From 804bhp 4L twin turbo V8 and lightweight open roofed design, this roadster also has a new air management system designed to keep cabin occupants from feeling the elements outside too much. Without a window screen, and a top speed in excess of 200mph McLaren have suggested a helmet is worn when driving this new beauty, and it even has space for storing this essential. Like most roofless cars, this new Elva features an emergency roll over system to protect occupants. We don’t expect to be seeing this car on many roads round the world, but its sure to be an extremely impressive addition on both road and track.
Aston Martin Vantage Roadster
Readying themselves for a Spring 2020 unveiling, Aston Martin have been busy preparing a brand-new drop top Roadster, a variant of the existing Vantage which has been available since 2018. Keeping the wide and low appearance of the coupé along with the slim light bar in the rear and spoiler design, the styling changes to this model are mainly in the soft top canvas. We’re expecting this car to feature the same 503bhp 4L V8 as the coupé but are still awaiting technical details to be released.
