I suppose you could look at this as Fifth Gear’s take on Top Gear’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. But this time the car – a Prodrive 270bhp Subaru Impreza WRC – was not exactly a reasonably priced car. And this was no airfield track in leafy Surrey, but the Sweet Lamb rally stage […]
Last week we reported on a competition VW are running to promote the new Tiguan. They’re getting Joe Public to submit ideas for a review of the car and, if successful, to actually let them play at car reviewer.

Marketing Sales of the old Jaguar XJ have not been a resounding success, certainly in later years. True, it is an exceptionally good car, and the Jaguar XJ Diesel has remarkable economy and has been voted Greenest Luxury Car three years on the trot.

One of the likely casualties of Chrysler’s woes was the Viper brand. It has been perceived that the manufacture of cars like the Viper lead to the downfall of Chrysler and GM. But that’s so far off the reality it’s laughable. After all, the most successful car makers in the world have high performance ‘Halo’ […]
