Volvo is the latest car maker to play tease with concept shots of their new cars, this time with the Volvo S60 for 2010. I’m really not sure that teaser shots work as a marketing ploy (which, let’s face it, is all they are). For a start, 9 out of 10 of the concept shots […]
Portugal has today committed to building 1,300 recharging stations around the country by 2011, in a deal agreed with Renault to supply Electric Cars (EV). This is a further indication of the global rush to go green, with ‘carbon’ taxes and ‘carbon’ incentives sprouting from the desks of politicians throughout the West. But how logical […]
Being male, and Clarkson-aged, I remember, and owned, many of the ‘Classic’ cars which have turned up in hit TV series in recent years. For many years now they’ve just been fond memories, periodically stimulated by looking at old photos, but cars like these are becoming more and more common on our roads, according to […]
So the Yugo is no more. Do you care? Not one dot, I’m sure. But there are plenty of people round the world, particularly in Eastern Europe, who will. For many, it was the only way they could afford to run an a new, or used, car. The Yugo is probably the last remaining relic […]
I know, there have been endless spy shots of the Porsche Panamera around for ever. But the car is getting closer, and we now have the first Porsche supplied images surfacing. Not on purpose, mind you. It would appear that these images are embargoed until Monday, but those nice people over at Auto Motor und […]

A new Ferrari is always an event. For most of us, owning a Ferrari is beyond dreams. But what’s life without aspirations, and even if we can’t afford it we can lust after it. And Ferrari knows that. That’s why they have always made cars that are beyond the reach of normal mortals. At this level price is subjective. It’s all about lust.
I think we all knew it was happening, but Glass’s guide, the trade bible for used car values, has confirmed that luxury cars in the UK have fallen out of bed in a big way. Comparing luxury diesel saloons with a year ago, they say that average values have dropped by a massive 21%. And […]
The Lamborghini LP560 has been with us for a few months now, so bang on cue Lamborghini has announced the convertible version – The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder (what a mouthful – I think we’ll just stick with ‘LP560’). The Spyder version of the original Gallardo was always one of our favourites. It gave away […]
