When we went to the launch of the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic back in January, we were suitably impressed with what Ford had managed to squeeze out of the Fiesta, although a little less impressed by the price. With emissions at a road tax busting 98g/km, and a headline economy of over 76mpg, it promised very […]

We all know by now that the stunning Ariel Atom is a monster car in the performance stakes. Whether you’re driving the standard or the supercharged version, its mammoth performance and four-wheeled motor bike-like build, mean you end up looking like something from the Black Lagoon (remember the TG vid of Clarkson’s face – actually, […]
Lotus is a big fan of the Toyota engine. The new Lotus Evora features a 3.5 litre V6 sourced from Toyota, and the Lotus Elise uses a 1.8 litre from the same stable. So it will be no surprise that Lotus is reported to be transplanting a range of Lexus engines in to the new […]

Finally, after years of eschewing high quality, stylish and relatively economic cars from overseas, the States is finally waking up to just how good the products on offer from the likes of Ford and GM in Europe are. We’ve seen the […]
