No sooner had I submitted the copy and videos for the BMW M4 vs Lexus RC F test to Pistonheads, than I heard the AMG C63S launch drives were underway. This is the first decent review from the event in Portimao that I’ve seen. Kudos to Chris and Neil – that was an incredibly quick turn-around! And […]
Aston Martin V12 vs Porsche 991 Turbo S
Commissioned is such a formal term isn’t it? And if the result is a few days spent enjoying such supercars as these, it almost seems a bit ungrateful too. I was a bit annoyed with myself over this test. Because, without a single doubt, the Porsche was the better car. Better cockpit, better handling, better […]
AMG G500^2… it’s hip to be SQUARED
JESUS TAP-DANCING BABY CHRIST. I’ve never wanted a 4×4 as badly as this… it’s the new “show car” from AMG. They’ve put two portal axles from the 6×6 dune basher under a regular-sized G500 gelandeswagen and then slapped in the new 4.0 twin-turbo V8 from the latest AMG machines! Portal axles are cool (because UniMog, educate […]
COMING SOON: £1000 Suzuki Stupidity
Sometimes an idea gets into my head, and not even a family intervention will stop me. Luckily, my brother shares the same affliction. And so when he bought a sub-£1000 Suzuki Jimny, I just had to buy one too. Except they were all minging, and this Grand Vitara came up on a Gumtree search. This was […]
VIDEO: 2015 Elise S Cup
Shooting cars and driving them fast. This was a great job that I was offered by Pistonheads. You can read my published track test here. It seemed pretty natural to try and make a short video too. Unfortunately it wasn’t worthy of being published on Pistonheads, but I hope it’s still worth sharing… And […]
VIDEO: Porsche Launch Control
During a Porsche Experience day last summer, I had the pleasure of launching a Porsche 911 Turbo. Several times. In fact, all together, this yellow 991 did around 50 launches that day. And that was just one day out of a planned 10 day event. The event didn’t yield anything new or of specific and timely […]
VIDEO: Up and Atom
Not a week goes by that I don’t remember the day that Lee let me drive his Ariel Atom on the Destination Nürburgring trackday.
I’D LAP IT: Lexus RC F GT3
I spotted this little beauty in the garage next door. Lexus had brought it along purely for the purposes of reinforcing the RC F’s sporting credentials. I asked the event staff and instructors, but apparently it never turned a wheel in anger during the whole 10-day event. What a shame!
