Aston Martin is suffering badly, Bentley has serious problems and Jaguar & Land Rover, both owned by Indian firm Tata, are pushing the government for a £1 billion loan. And today comes news that […]

Mazda has today released the first pictures of the new Mazda 3 hatchback, ahead of the Bologna Motor Show on December 3rd. The pictures come hot on the heels of the recently announced saloon and, just like the saloon, the Mazda 3 hatchback is a much fresher design, with far more sporty pretensions. One of […]
Many of the major manufacturers have had online configurators for some time. The dreamers can go and dream, and the real punters can go and see what they can live without. The likes of Porsche and Mercedes have being doing this for some time, but Ferrari hasn’t really felt the need to play – until […]
I’m sure you all saw Top Gear last night, with both the Bugatti Veyron and the Zonda F Roadster on the Top Gear track for the first time. Definitely worth the viewing! The Zonda is relatively new, so you can forgive the boys for not having it on the track before. But the Veyron has […]
Mercedes Benz has today announced that they will be bringing the C180 Kompressor Blue Efficiency to the UK in January, cutting Co2 emissions of the model and increasing fuel efficiency, and replacing the current C180 Kompressor. Despite a reduction in capacity of almost 200cc (which begs the question, why isn’t it called the C160 – […]
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 […]

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 […]
