It’s no secret that Honda want to beat Toyota in the Hybrid car sales stakes. The Honda Insight was launched at a particularly keen price point with one aim in mind – to beat the Toyota Prius. And it appears to have worked. In the UK the Honda Insight has outsold the Toyota Prius by […]
We have moaned a fair bit about the endless iterations of the MINI marque. From basic MINI Ones to MINI Cabriolets, to MINI Crossovers to the MINI Speedster et al. And now there is another to add to the list – The MINI John Cooper F1 50th Anniversary Edition. But perhaps this one is a […]
As was expected, Porsche has developed a Hybrid version of the Cayenne – The Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid – which will be launched in the UK in 2010.
With the official photos of the new BMW X1 only a month away, an undisguised BMW X1 has been seen filming in Germany.
McLaren don’t have an easy time of it – but a big chunk of it has been of their own making. They have been pretty well punished for the furore over the Ferrari information they purloined last year, and their relationship with the sport’s governing body has never been great.

Jaguar are just months away from revealing the all new Jaguar XJ range (on July 9th in London), and we recently had a ‘teaser’ release of pictures and video from Jaguar (not forgetting our ‘best Jaguar XJ’ photo). And ahead of the launch Jaguar have been giving the new XJ a shakedown at the Nurburgring, […]
Renault has confirmed that it will be launching a coupe 0 cabriolet version of the Renault Twingo – the Twingo CC – by the Spring of 2010.

It’s the ‘Concorde’ moment of car construction (probably even more so with the move towards eco-cars). But it’s a ‘halo project’ for VW – more about showing what is possible rather than making a profit on […]
We first got to see the Ferrari 599XX at the Geneva Motor Show in March, when Ferrari brought one along to the show, but details were a little thin on the ground. In fact, there were more details on the handling pack for the 599 – the 599 HTGE Pack – than there were for […]
The last time we saw the Audi RS5 out testing at the Nurburgring, it appeared to be pretty much undisguised. The video we had earlier of the RS5 (which has now been removed by YouTube) showed the RS5 lapping the Nurburgring at a fair lick. But it would appear that the car we saw then […]
