With car sales plummeting in 2008 (and likely to be worse in 2009) there aren’t many bright spots around. But performance saloons are certainly one of them. As we reported back in December, BMW’s M Division had a cracking year, with sales of nearly 27,000 for the year. In fact, they did so well that […]

This is one every Aston Martin lover has been waiting for. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage promised so much when it was launched. It looked great, it sounded even better, and Aston Martin promised us it would be cheap (by Aston standards) and show the 911 how it was done. Well… It didn’t quite make […]
With a new model of the Mazda3 released at Bologna, Mazda has now added more to the range with the announcement that the Mazda3 MPS and i-stop will be launched at Geneva in March. The Mazda3 MPS is the ‘Hot Hatch’ version of the Mazda3. Aggressive styling, including a big air scoop at the front, […]
The Citroen DS is one of the most evocative Citroens ever. Designed by Bertoni, it was a futuristic looking, technically advanced (with hydropneumatic suspension) car that sat at the top of the Citroen range. It went on to spawn the legendary Citroen SM – a Maserati powered ‘Supercar’ – and its place in Citroen’s history […]
VW is pushing out its BlueMotion offerings with the announcement that the next Touareg will be offered with Volkaswagen’s first full production Hybrid when it launches next year. Also on offer will be a Passat BlueMotion, a Passat Blue TDi and a Passat TSi EcoFuel. I think we can guess which way VW are going […]
The UK Car industry has suffered one blow after another. Just about everyone is shut down or on short time, and the rounds of strikes we’ve seen in the UK in the last days is a pretty clear indication of fear in the jobs market. So it’s nice to see a bit of good news. […]
No, it hasn’t been having a fight (although it could be down to Top Gear’s football Aygo matches!), but Toyota has launched the 2009 version of the Aygo, and two new editions, the Aygo Black and the Aygo Blue. The Aygo was launched back in 2005, as a sub-Yaris city car, and has carved a […]
Well, it looks like the value of my Porsche Cayenne S may just have risen from nothing to something! The heaviest snowfall in the south east for many years has lead to chaos on our roads. Slip-sliding around has been the name of the game, with only 4 wheel drive cars being able to make […]
We’ve been waiting for the Audi R8 V10 for some time. But now it’s getting close Audi are busy teasing us with one little snippet or another. First we had the Audi R8 V10 images. Then we had the prices and specifications. And now it’s the turn of the video. As we wrote recently, the […]
As we’ve said before, the Aston Martin Rapide has been so long coming it feels like it’s already here. But it’s not, despite the spy pictures of the Rapide we’ve seen, and now comes the first official picture – apparently. We’ve seen an ‘official’ Aston Martin Rapide image before, but this looks more convincing, even […]
