Top Gear's 2023 car lineup is a thrilling mix of boundary-pushing machines. From the electric hybrid Porsche 911 to the off-road Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato, these cars redefine performance. The Range Rover Sport SV downsizes with potential plug-in hybrid options and the Alpine A110R gets lighter and more agile. Prepare to embark on exhilarating adventures and witness game-changing innovation with Top Gear's remarkable lineup of 2023 cars.

1. Porsche 911 Dakar 

Prepare to witness the evolution of the Porsche 911. The upcoming facelifted 992 model will mark 911's entrance into the electric hybrid era. However, in the meantime, a rugged and adventurous version is on its way, ready to fulfil the rally raid fantasies, even during a trip to the supermarket.

2. Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato 

Lamborghini joins the off-road sports car segment with the production of the Sterrato. Featuring extra spotlights and bold bolt-on wheel arches, owners will relish the sight of regular supercars carefully tackling speed bumps, while their carbon fibre splitter remains intact.

3. Range Rover Sport SV 

Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations division streamlines projects under the 'SV' badge, resulting in a modified Range Rover Sport. The 'SVR' designation will be scaled back, and the engine may downsize from a powerful 5.0-litre supercharged V8 to a twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 sourced from BMW. 

4. Alpine A110R 

Incorporating carbon fibre components like the roof, rear screen, and wheels, the petite A110 has shed 34kg while featuring downforce and reducing drag. It now offers improved rigidity, enhanced grip, and seats that provide secure support.
