It’s a brave new world out there in the the car business. Big, established names have fallen by the wayside, and iconic names from the past are being gobbled up by predatory minions. And as we all know, the ‘General’ (GM) has fared worst than most. It has suffered the ignominy of falling from the […]

When we did our Jaguar XFR Review recently we came away believing that the XFR has the measure of its German competitors, including the might BMW M5. So it would be fair to assume that the XKR equally holds its own against rivals. And in our opinion, it does. But there are criticisms from some […]
As with its sister company Hyundai, Kia is inexorably moving in to the mainstream, and is starting to produce cars that compete with the best models from Europe and Japan. Already on the cards is the new Kia Cee’d at Frankfurt, and Kia has now confirmed that it is bringing the new Kia Sorento to […]
Oh, dear. Richard Hammond has become accident prone. Perhaps it’s his mid-life crisis hairstyle, or maybe he was dazzled by the reflections from his teeth in the rear-view mirror. But whatever the reason, he’s managed to wreck his Morgan Aero by running in to the back of Nissan at a roundabout. The Hamster was apparently […]
Subaru are to launch the all new Subaru Legacy Saloon, Subaru Legacy Estate (sports Tourer) and Subaru Legacy Outback at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Update 10/09/09: Subaru has now released model and price detail for the 2010 Legacy Tourer in the UK. The current Legacy and Outlander should sell in droves – they […]
Our exclusive report back in March that there is a Lamborghini Reventon Roadster on the way has been rumbling on without conclusion. We know it’s real (in fact we know one very high-profile Russian who already has a contract) but we also know that the original plan to reveal the Roadster was delayed because there […]
The Aston Martin Rapide has been on its way for what seems like forever. But finally, it’s almost here. The plan is to have the Rapide at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and have the car on sale in early 2010. So it’s no real surprise, with the Aston Martin Rapide actually getting to […]
A slightly disingenuous statement, to be fair. But it got your attention! It would be horrifying for Jaguar to discover that they’d built a glorious car like the new Jaguar XJ, only to find they’d dropped a huge clanger by making it an illegal road car in the US. It’s not that bad, but Ian […]
Hyundai seems to have had Mystic Meg working for them of late. They’ve managed to predict exactly where the market is going and have placed their cars with unerring accuracy in the sights of car buyers in Europe and the US. So successful has their marketing been that they now find themselves in the top […]
Back in December last year, Mercedes McLaren finally got round to revealing that the run-out model of the SLR would be the McLaren SLR Stirling Moss – dubbed SLR Speedster before it was announced. And what a swan-song. A car like no other (except perhaps the Veritas III) it looked just like a 1940s German […]
