This 5400sq ft Manhattan venue is an Italian melange of cars, dining and brand partners. “It’s a space that our friends and customers can call their own,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini’s president and CEO. The Huracán STO will be one of the first models on display.

● In Jaguar circles, the Frankensteinish 1960 Jaguar XK150 Foxbat ‘shooting brake’, top, has cult status. This unlikely mid-1970s amalgamation of a 3.4-litre coupé and a Morris Minor is on sale for £44,995 at Justin Banks in Tunbridge Wells.

● On an estate theme, there is much excitement at Nicholas Mee in Herts over a trio of rare Aston Martin DB5 Vantages.

And here it is, offered along with a coupé and a convertible. “It is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said MD Nicholas Mee. The collection price is £4m.

● Read all about it! A new three-level Harwoods Jaguar Land Rover dealer with upper floor barista bar has opened in Hollingbury, Brighton. The site was formerly the home of local rag The Argus. “We’ve commissioned a local artist to create public artwork that will feature the print presses,” said head of business Marc Sack.
