Last week at the Detroit Motor Show, Honda revealed its Prius-challenging Insight Hybrid, and has today revealed details on the UK/Euro version. The new Insight, which utilises a 1.3 litre petrol engine with 88bhp, coupled with a 14bhp electric motor to give a 0-60 of just over 12 seconds and 113mph, has very low […]

Skoda has packaged up a limited edition of the Octavia vRS to tempt buyers to buy, and to be honest it’s not a bad deal. But then, nor is the regular vRS. The older you are, the harder it is to get over the ‘Skoda Skips’ of the past. But even for the middle-aged, Skoda […]
Used car sales in the UK (and just about everywhere else, for that matter) have been in the doldrums, to say the least, for many months. The inexorable decline in car values has left many dealers nursing painful losses on stock cars, and has led to the strange situation where, however desperate a dealer was […]
Porsche’s new state-of-the-art museum, located next to Porsche HQ in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart, and estimated to have cost €100 million to build, is now finished and ready to start taking visitors from 31/01/2009. The Porsche museum is a stunning building, holding an equally stunning collection of cars, marking Porsche’s long history. But these are not dusty […]
Ford has announced this afternoon that the much awaited Ford Focus RS has now started to roll off the production line at its plant in Saarlouis, Germany. Long awaited, and much anticipated, the Focus RS is going to be available in 20 countries throughout Europe, with its biggest markets being Germany and the UK. The […]
Before Christmas the CEO of Fiat was reported as saying that he believed that the current malaise in the car market (and any other market, for that matter) would result in the rationalisation of the industry, and see just a handful of big players come out the other side. His words now seem prescient, as […]
When you think of Cadillac you tend to think of geriatric Americans coasting round God’s waiting room in Florida. Slow, old, wrinkled and not very well bolted together (and that’s just the drivers), nothing to inspire the car lover, and certainly nothing to suggest it would be a good idea to try and sell a […]
Audi’s RS models are pretty much the best in their class. Wonderfully willing engines, great handling and an urge to ‘Go’ that’s unrivalled in their competitors. Yes, it’s arguable that for track day fun a BMW with rear wheel drive is more fun, but in the real world Audi’s 4 wheel drive is a better […]
I have to confess, I have been known to moan about the range of harsh Co2 targets that governments, particularly in the EU, have imposed on car makers. In times of economic turmoil it seems counter productive to force costly targets on manufacturers. Still, I can’t argue with the results. Lexus is the latest car […]
We reported last week on the VW BlueSport Concept, a relatively economical 2 seat roadster, which VW unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show. We said then that if we were VW we’d be pressing the start button as soon as possible, and reports seem to indicate that that is exactly what VW are hoping to […]
