An exclusive look at VW’s Boxster-beater in this week’s AutoExpress mag. Based on the concept R show car, the two-seater roadster will offer searing pace and razor-sharp handling.

The newcomer is one of at least 25 new models the firm is launching over the next five years - these include the new Eos convertible, a Golf-based SUV and even a Golf coupé, as revealed by Auto Express in Issue 886. With striking looks and a mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout, the new roadster will provide a cut-price rival to the Boxster, plus BMW’s Z4 and Mercedes’ SLK, as well as competing directly with the Honda S2000 and Vauxhall’s forthcoming GT.
