R-Dynamic adds a switchable sports exhaust, gloss black design pack, 19in wheels, LED headlights and aluminium trim inside. Opt for the V6 380 and the wheels are upped to 20in, there’s a limited slip differential, bigger brakes and the option of four-wheel drive.
Engine: 3.0 Supercharged V6
This 335bhp V6 engine can get the car from 0-60mph in around five seconds and it’s significantly cheaper than the more powerful V6 380 model, so that’s why it’s our favourite. A six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic are available, but make sure you spec the optional switchable sports exhaust if you choose this engine.
