We’re starting to come to the conclusion that we should start a Car News Site dedicated just to MINI and its endless special editions! One after another they keep coming – and we know of lots more in the pipeline. Still, no one can accuse BMW of not making enough of the Marque! Today’s release, […]

Two Scrappage scheme stories in the same day – and there’s us trying our best to avoid thinking about this shoddy little sop to the car industry’s problems. Never mind, it’s our job! We shouldn’t be surprised, considering one of the main politicians involved with the scheme was that ‘National Treasure’ Lord ‘Mandy’ Mandelson, but […]
As you have probably realised by now, we are not huge fans of the (S)crappage scheme. It’s poorly drafted and really just a sop to the pressure put on the Government to emulate what the Germans did. And in truth it probably only helps buyers of budget cars and the dealers supplying them (but of […]
As we’ve discussed countless times, Mercedes and Audi seem to be filling niches in the car market no one even realised existed. But BMW is playing catch-up quickly. Many would say that the X6, and in particular the BMW X6M, is a car that fills a niche that doesn’t exist – but we have another […]
We’ve had a chunk of VW releases lately, and several on the new Volkswagen Golf. We reported earlier on the VW Golf GTI Worthersee Concept car, and this afternoon early information and pictures have surfaced of the next Golf release – the new VW Golf Estate. Planned to be released at the end of the […]
Mitsubishi has decided that there is a hole to fill in its Evo X range, so it has introduced the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X FQ330 SST, to fit in between the FQ300 and the FQ360. The Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X FQ330 SST offers an increase of 29bhp over the FQ330, and features Mitsubishi’s new six-speed […]
We’ve seen lots on the Rolls Royce Ghost over recent months. From spy shots earlier in the year, to the reveal at Geneva and then a barely camouflaged Ghost at Dover Docks last week, it’s obvious that work on the production-ready version of the RR Ghost is well under way. But the RR Ghost will […]
The Wörthersee Tour is in full swing in Austria, and as we told you yesterday Audi has brought along the Audi Q5 Wörthersee Concept to show off, along with a handful of its latest models. But this is a VW as well as Audi show, so Volkswagen has gone one better and brought along a pair […]
When McLaren revealed the formation of the McLaren Automotive Company last month, they said that they intended building 1,000 cars a year by 2011, rising to 4,000 a year by 2015. But where? McLaren said they needed to build a new facility – after all, the current Woking set-up certainly couldn’t handle that sort of […]
Well, we were close with our story on the Volkswagen Scirocco R20T. But it looks like VW are dropping the ’20T’ bit and sticking with VW Scirocco R. Fine by us. Car names are getting so long and convoluted it’s nice to see a car maker actually using something straightforward for a change. And unlike […]
