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

Here is our round ...

Not so special, special editions

The person who sticks the badges on the back of Porsche’s used to have the easiest job in the world. All he had to do was get some glue, grab one nine, two ones and stick them on the back of the car. But over the last couple of years the dedicated badge man has ...

Photoshop smoke and mirrors

Photoshop is a dark art. It is to blame for 14 year olds striving for that size zero look and can even make a Mini Countryman look good, no really. Check it out.

A Mini WRC adventure

It’s official, MINI is back in the WRC. Well, MINI isn’t actually back from anything because it has never rallied. But the loose strains of Mini DNA which BMW bought in 2000 are finally going to rally again. MINI will be using the CoUNTryman to try and relieve their previous rally heritage, which I think ...

Maddest Mini engine swap ever!

The Mini D is the sensible, frugal and efficient option in the new MINI range. A diesel powered Mini was never available in 1959, especially a diesel engine with 3500 brake horsepower.

The revival of the Art Car

Special edition cars are generally always cool, especially when companies try to express their artistic side. BMW made ‘Art Cars’ famous with the original BMW 3.0 CSL back in 1975. Since then there has been a distinct lack of artistic expressionism on cars. The closest thing we have had to an Art Car was a ...

Is the MiTo GTA the Cooper S killer?
