Driven: Fiat 500C TwinAir

The Fiat 500 is not new news, but stop! (collaborate and listen) there is something in this certain 500 that makes it harp back to its predecessor more than some retro glad rags – the engine. Powering this certain Italian throwback is not your standard four-cylinder engine but a new two-cylinder, just like the original ...

Mansory’s motoring massacres

Did you know that the boys and girls at work in Gaydon, Maranello and Stuttgart are all a bunch of slackers?* They are all designing half-arsed cars that aren’t quite special enough. You know the ones, those ugly Aston Martin DBS’, Mercedes SLS’ and Ferrari 458s. Luckily there is one man, a saviour, a pioneer ...

Reviewed: DiRT3

Over the last five years the world of rallying has seen a dramatic change. Gone are the days of fans hiding in the woods with anoraks, Thermos flasks and bobble hats, rally fans of 2011 wear baseball caps backwards and have highly caffeinated drinks injected into their blood stream – don’t ya’ know. With rallying ...

Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Festival of Speed returned to Goodwood House over the weekend, with Lord March’s grounds hosting another typically spectacular event. The theme, for there always is one, was ‘Racing Revolutions’, described as quantum leaps that shaped motor sport, although sometimes referred to as an unfair advantage.

Nürburgring 24 Hours

The Nürburgring Nordschleife is a lot of different things. To Jackie Stewart it was the “Green Hell”, to his long lost German cousin it is the Grüne Hölle, to the Gran Turismo generation it is Mecca, a place they tilt their Xbox to in appreciation, and to manufacturers it is used as an industry benchmark. ...

Driven: Honda Civic Type-R Mugen

Ringdiculous

We’ve been getting a bit sick of being sent emails that have ‘Nürburgring’ and ‘record’ in the subject heading as they seem to enter our inbox daily. When we received a press release stating that Renault had broken the front-wheel drive Nürburgring lap record in the new Renault Megane 265 Trophy we nearly dismissed it. Then we looked again at ...
