Zapping Auto Moto Peugeot 408 test: increase in g(r) range
Skoda unveils the fourth generation of its Superb, available both as a sedan and as an estate unlike its close cousin, the Volkswagen Passat, now only available as an estate.
Skoda Superb iV
The Skoda Superb receives the new generation of plug-in hybrid from the Volkswagen group, capable of driving up to 100 km in electric mode. But this version only exists as a Combi station wagon in France.
Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer
Volkswagen is giving new information on the station wagon variant of its electric ID.7, scheduled for 2024. This will be called ID.7 Tourer, and is partly revealed under its autumn camouflage.
Ferrari 499P Modified
During the Finali Mondiali on the Mugello circuit (Italy), Ferrari presented the 499P Modificata, a “gentleman drivers” version of the Ferrari 499P victorious at the last 24 Hours of Le Mans. His price ? More than 5 million euros!
Ferrari 296 Challenge
At the same time, the Prancing Horse revealed the 296 Challenge, a racing version of the supercar devoid of its hybridization and reserved for wealthy clients of the Ferrari Challenge one-make championship.
The Fiat Fastback, a coupe SUV sold in Brazil, goes through the Abarth box. On the program, a reworked look and a more dynamic chassis, associated with a 1.0 turbo engine of 185 hp. But its arrival in Europe is not planned for the moment…
After busy concept car news last week at the Tokyo Motor Show, this first week of November is a little calmer in terms of new developments.
However, November 2 coincided with the official presentation of the fourth generation of the Skoda Superb. This shares a lot with the recent Volkswagen Passat, but has a sedan body while its German cousin is only offered as an estate. An astonishing strategy on the part of the German group… Moreover, the other news from Volkswagen was the confirmation of the name of its future electric station wagon: it will be ID.7 Tourer. This variation partly reveals its style under a light autumn camouflage, before its introduction to the market in 2024.
Three Italians unveiled in the same week
Last weekend, on the occasion of the Finali Mondiali, a major annual celebration organized by Ferrari on the Mugello circuit (Italy), the Scuderia presented two exclusive models reserved for the circuit: the 499P Modificata, derived from the victorious 499P in the last 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the 296 Challenge, a V6 296 without hybridization dedicated to the Ferrari Challenge.
Much less powerful but also less expensive, the Abarth Fastback also appears. The spicy version of the Scorpion of this Italian SUV coupe sold in Brazil displays 185 hp. Did this model catch your eye? Don’t expect too much to see it in our regions, since it should remain confined to South America… Unless it is finally imported to Europe later, as was the case with the Renault Arkana initially only offered in Korea.

To sum up
A week a little quieter than the previous ones in terms of new products, despite the official presentation of the new Skoda Superb and two very exclusive racing Ferraris.
