Audi’s new 2015 R8 GT3 was revealed only a couple of weeks ago, but already it’s debuted undisguised at today’s VLN Einstellfahrten.
It’s one thing to see a car in a magazine or website, another to see it in a show (like Geneva). But it’s another thing to see a new car in the flesh. I’m emotionally attached to Mazda’s diminutive MX-5, having owned, loved and and tuned my own Eunos Roadster over many years. Even the bigger NC […]
This is the new 3-motored hybrid hypercar from Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg. It’s called Regera and boasts a theoretical 1797hp hidden inside that stylish form, though you can only call on around 1500 of those horses at any one time. And it doesn’t have a gearbox. It’s a single speeder. Really! If you want to know more, […]
A little cross-post from my Nürburgring blog over at BridgeToGantry.com. But the photos just look better on here 😉 If you want to know what the hell I’m doing here, then you should probably click through.

Invoking the values and kudos of the original McLaren F1 GTR is a big deal. You can’t cash these chips in every year, or even every decade.
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 […]
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 […]
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!
