Geneva ’11: The good, the bad and the ugly

So this year’s Geneva motor show has been and gone and what a corker it was! There wasn’t an obtrusive environmental wave but more of an accepting attitude to change, the financial doom and gloom that overshadowed the show last year stayed away and it seemed to be lambing season in the supercar world. Here is our round ...

Unboxing: Koenigsegg Agera R

Say hello to the new Koenigsegg Agera R – the only Koenigsegg that you can take skiing. Now we have seen supercars with ski boxes before, but this one is different because it is the fastest supercar with a ski box option. The ‘R’ has the same 5-litre V8 as the normal Agera but it has been ...

Where the rubber meets the road

To Americans the burnout it is central to car ownership. It is a territorial statement, the motoring version of cocking a leg and pissing on a lamppost. For American motoring mags there is a fight to be the first to get photos of the latest Detroit metal with rear-wheels spinning, brake calipers glowing and thick ...

Unboxing: Aston Martin Virage Coupe and Volante

Say hello to the new Aston Martin Virage Coupe and Volante. What exactly is it? Well, it is what you get if you lux up a DB9 or slightly soften a DBS. The Virage is meant to offer the ballsy bits of the DBS with the more comforting and welcoming luxury of a Rapide or ...

Driven: Renault Clio Gordini 200

In an ideal world the Renault Clio Gordini 200 would be the car of ‘le moment’. And in an ideal world you would confess that Renault has pulled off one heck of a good marketing stunt. You see heritage sells. Describing a jacket for instance, as a ‘garment in the style of classic, British tailoring’ ...

Supercabs are here!

If you are a car enthusiast, a trip in a Taxicab is quite different to any other punter. Depending how anally retentive/geeky you are about cars, your impressions of the car and driver start before you have even opened the door to get in. You can tell quite a lot about what kind of habits ...

Hypercar autopsy

We all know that supercars are expensive toys. Apart from the initial cost of buying a piece of automotive excellence, there is also the scary prospect of keeping it on the road. Servicing a normal car is one thing but servicing a supercar is something completely different. With all the cutting edge technology which is ...

Unboxing: Pagani Huayra

Earlier this week saw some dodgy scanned magazine pages of the new Pagani supercar, but here it is in full hi-res glory. Say hello to the Pagani Huayra, the latest offspring from Horacio Pagani and the replacement for the Zonda. As you can see it has quite a fishy design. With an elliptical Basking Shark-esque mouth and gull ...

Driven: Porsche 911 Turbo

People condemn Porsche’s decision not to change the overall design of the 911 as boring. But no matter what people say about the shape of the 911 its design consistency serves as a very useful timeline. The 911 Turbo, for me at least, is the easiest Porsche to track through their design history. Before the ...

Unboxing: Ferrari FF

Say hello to Ferrari’s first ever production shooting-brake. It is called the Ferrari FF, or ‘Ferrari Four’ and not so surprisingly it has four wheel drive, four seats and a massive engine. Or what we define as a win, win and win scenario. Set to replace the long in the tooth rear wheel drive 612 ...
