2013's hottest new cars

Happy New Year to all Speedmonkey readers.  Here is our list of the hottest new cars in 2013 and links to the full stories on Speedmonkey.

This list relates to the UK so our American friends may have to wait a while longer for some models.

Maserati Quattroporte - this four door saloon will be the first in a new model onslaught from Maserati.

Maserati GranCabrio MC - high performance version of the GranCabrio

Porsche Cayman - lighter, faster, more powerful version of the Boxster's tin top sibling

Audi S3 - a £30,000 and 0-60 in 5.1 seconds price puts the new S3 firmly in M135i territory

Audi RS6 - massively powerful version of the A6 Avant will be available in 2013 after a 3 years absence

Audi R8 - revised R8 is lighter and faster, but not as powerful as the RS6

Alfa Romeo 4C - will the beautiful new coupe from Alfa represent a new beginning?

Porsche 911 Turbo - it's in development.  Porsche haven't said much.  We got exclusive spy shots

Porsche 911 GT3 - the GT3 Cup has been announced.  Expect a road going version soon

BMW 4 series - a renamed and revised 3 series coupe and convertible

Jaguar F-Type - expectations cannot be higher for this car.  If it's good will sell by the truckload

Jaguar XFR-S - 550bhp Jaguar saloon.  Utterly fantastic.  The XFR is good, this should be better

Peugeot RCZ Coupe - revised coupe from Peugeot.  Expect used value to plummet shortly after purchase

Peugeot 208 GTi - much is spoken by Peugeot of this being a true successor to the 205 GTi

Renault Clio - will a Williams Clio follow?  We hope so

Seat Ibiza Cupra - 180bhp warm hatch with a 1.4 engine from Seat

McLaren P1 - 0-60 in 3 seconds.  Costs £800,000.  Expect acres of coverage when this is launched

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta - 599 replacement looks achingly beautiful

Vauxhall ADAM - is this enough to stop GM buckling under the weight of all their debt?

Vauxhall Cascada - a more niche car than the ADAM.  Looks stunning

Golf GTi MkVII - not as fast as the S3, faster than Ibiza Cupra.  Clever VW Group

Range Rover - big new update for the Rangey.  Expect a road test here soon

Aston Martin Vanquish - faster and better looking than the DBS.
