58. August 2012: Ducati 1199 Panigale
Okay, so it’s a two-wheeler, but we think it’s worthy of a mention this month. It’s Italian. It’s impossibly sexy. It’s red. Still resisting? If that's not enough to convince you, Ducati has also graced the Panigale with a frameless chassis and 192bhp courtesy of the new Super L-Twin engine.

59. July 2012: Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet
Volkswagen's little cabriolet has a 1.2 litre petrol engine, and does 0-60 in 11.7 seconds. Not the quickest, you may think, but the Golf Cabriolet can be upgraded to include much more powerful engines, and Volkswagen's emissions-reducing 'BlueMotion' technology. "Zero to sunshine in just 9.5 seconds" says Volkswagen of the golf's retractable roof, so you'll only miss 19 seconds of the five minutes of sunshine we get this summer.

60. July 2012: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
The Italians rip up the rule book with 730bhp, 60mph in three seconds flat and an 8,700rpm redline. Ferrari's new 12-cylinder engine also slashes emissions and fuel consumption by 30%, and the Berlinetta as a whole is the most balanced, most compact, and lowest coupe Ferrari has ever made. Magnifico!

61. July 2012: Porsche Cayenne GTS
Massive, 20-inch RS Spyder wheels and a power bump to 414bhp are the highlights of the sportiest Cayenne yet. The engine provides plenty of grunt, with 8 cylinders getting you from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds and levelling out at a sprightly 162mph. Thankfully, it comes in other colours, so you don't have to drive around like a giant tennis ball.

63. June 2012: Porsche Boxster
Bigger, more luxurious and more capable than ever, but incredibly also 30kg lighter, thanks to the miracle fabric known as “aluminium”. This is Porche’s third generation Boxster, and with 261bhp and the capability to hit 0-62mph in 5.8 seconds one of the slickest and speediest cars on the road.
