April 17, 2016

The pony car seems to be expanding its legacy into the future with its new and innovative Camaro V8 Coupe 2016. The Chevrolet Camaro V8 Coupe 2016 comes with innovative hardware conjugated with a 4 cylinder turbo charged engine. It’s the sixth time, Camaro has come in a direct battle with Ford Mustang, the pony […]

2016 Ford GT Car Review

October 6, 2015

1966, the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Under the bulging eyes of Enzo Ferrari, three Fords cross the finish line. In one camp, excitement and laughter; in the other, shame and disappointment. This was the first time an American manufacturer won the spotlight from its European counterparts in a major race since the 1920s, […]

Lexus LF C2 Concept Car

September 26, 2015

Serving as a preview for a convertible that has failed to materialize, the Lexus LF C2 concept was one of Lexus’ most noteworthy achievements. Based on the LF LC coupe concept and the series RC F, the C2 blended the world of “what could have been” and “what is” in a perfectly harmonious body. Would […]

Ferrari FF

August 12, 2015

Ferrari is a universally known name and the allure of the brand alone can transform grown men into little boys. Known for the impressive performance of their models, the Prancing Horse factory has been at the forefront of supercar world for over 60 years. However, most of the models were two seaters, meaning that you […]

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

August 10, 2015

Marketed as the planet’s most powerful muscle car, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat boasts an impressive power figure, standing at 707 horsepower. With supercar rivalling performance figures, the massive coupe is available only as an import in the UK, but at the base price of $58,295 (£37,503 est.) there are little to no competitors for […]

Renault Sport R.S. 01

May 3, 2015

Primarily designed to showcase Renault’s sporting heritage, the Renault Sport R.S. 01 is a pure racing car, destined for the circuit. Unlike its other concepts (such as those in the Alpine line), the Renault Sport R.S. 01 will actually be produced and will serve as a test bed for race car drivers in the Renault […]

Pininfarina Ferrari Sergio

April 22, 2015

  Bearing the name of Pininfarina Ferrari Sergio, the latest bespoke model to come from Ferrari is a hallmark in the Prancing Horse’s history, as it celebrates 60 years of collaboration with the design house. An evolution of the concept bearing the same name, the final incarnation of the Sergio features a much more toned […]

QUANTiNO Car Review

April 17, 2015

  Belonging to the same company that brought forth the Quant E and Quant F, the QUANTiNO functions on the same principle as the two vehicles that preceded it, but it takes a much more compact form. Instead of having a lean, supercar-like allure attached to it, the QUANTiNO’s role is not that of being […]

McLaren 675LT Car Review

April 9, 2015

Part of McLaren’s Super Series, alongside the 650S Coupe and 650S Spider, the McLaren 675LT is part of a never seen offensive from the British manufacturer. Targeting the newly unveiled Ferrari 488GTB which is the first turbocharged mid engine Prancing Horse model since the legendary F40, the 675LT shares no less noble roots, as the […]

GTA Spano Car Review

April 4, 2015

  A supercar might not be the first thing Spain in known for, but the GTA Spano demolishes the typical representations of the football-bullfighting-sunny-beaches country. Why? Because it can! Probably driven by the same pride that lead Sweden to create Koenigsegg or Denmark to give birth to Zenvo, the Spanish masterminds behind the Spania GTA […]

SCG 003S

March 27, 2015

  One of the most noteworthy presences of the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the SCG 003S represents one man’s vision of the ultimate supercar. Jim Glickenhaus, an affluent North American car collector whose name circled the globe after his commissioning of the stunning Ferrari P4/5, has decided to start his own company, focusing on the […]

Quant F UK Car Review

March 21, 2015

  Arguably one of the most interesting concepts we’ve seen for a long time, the Quant F represents the next generation of zero emission cars. Built in Lichtenstein by NanoFlowcell AG, the F builds upon the heritage of its first model – the Quant E – consequently improving the overall experience and efficiency of the […]

Mercedes McLaren SLR

March 3, 2015

  Quite possibly one of the most controversial sports cars that Mercedes has produced to date, the Mercedes McLaren SLR was a curious crossbreed between a GT and a pureblood supercar. With incisive looks, but burdened by excessive weight, the Mercedes McLaren SLR, despite its carbon fiber construction, was not considered a part of the […]

Audi Q7

February 28, 2015

  The massive Audi Q7 was among the last of the German maker’s models to receive its well deserved refresh, as the old generation wasn’t up to date with the latest design elements implemented to the rest of the range. For starters, its classical, massive SUV footprint has transformed in to a massive wagon footprint, […]

Mercedes SLS AMG UK Car Review

February 24, 2015

  Without a question, the Mercedes SLS AMG has been one of the most beautiful cars in recent history to come from the German manufacturer. Carrying on the motorsport heritage of the legendary Silver Arrows, the slender automobile is unlike any other on the road. In fact, it is the first model designed and built […]

Audi Q3 UK Car Review

February 21, 2015

  Audi’s compact SUV has been well received by the audience, selling in fairly large numbers, which lead the manufacturer to provide it with a well deserved refresh for 2015. Sharing the same design language with the rest of the Ingolstadt range, the new Audi Q3 is more refined than before, both in exterior appearance […]

Peugeot RCZ UK Car Review

February 17, 2015

  Primarily designed to battle the Audi TT and VW Scirocco, Peugeot’s quirky coupe is coming forth with its individualistic design that arguably rises above its opponents. But is it better? Visually, the Peugeot RCZ is recognizable as belonging to the French marque, as its grin, spanning the entire width of the front bumper creates […]

Bentley Continental GT UK Car Review

February 15, 2015

  Bentley, alongside Rolls Royce, has represented the British Isles since time immemorial – or so it seems. Spearheads of opulence and fine taste, they herald a bequest unsurpassed by any other automobile manufacturer on the globe, being chosen not only by prosperous connoisseurs, but also by monarchs and heads of states. Situated on a […]

Bmw X1 UK Car Review

February 12, 2015

When it was first introduced on the market, the BMW X1 took advantage of a niche that was mostly barren, but as times progress, so did the segment fill with alternatives. We’re talking here about competition from the likes of Audi Q3 and Range Rover Evoque, which have established themselves as powerful opponents. The X1 […]

Volvo C30 UK Car Review

February 9, 2015

  Unlike the rest of Volvo’s line-up, the compact Volvo C30 sheds the traditional formal looks formula that still remains the backbone of the company and comes in a more youth-friendly package. Labelled as a sports coupe – although it sports a hatchback profile – the C30 falls in the same territory occupied by the […]

Audi A3 UK Car Review

February 7, 2015

  In a somewhat bothersome fashion, Audi operates in a most understated manner when updating its models from year to year – on the visual standpoint, at least, and the compact Audi A3 doesn’t stray far from this philosophy. There are no dazzling lines that make it stand out, no jaw dropping elements that would […]

Mercedes A-Class UK Car Review

February 5, 2015

  Characterized by the large grille, signature Mercedes headlights with LED trakes and the angry grin, the new Mercedes A-Class looks nothing like the mini-mpv design that preceded it. Some might like it, because it now looks like a proper rival for the BMW Series 1 and the Audi A3, while others might feel nostalgic […]

Subaru WRX STi 2014 UK Car Review

February 1, 2015

What’s blue and gold and barks like a lunatic dog on winding roads? Why, a Subaru WRX STi, of course! An incarnation of a poster car revered by both children and fully grown men, the rally wonder car has returned to the UK after a considerable absence, bringing with it a refreshed exterior and a […]

BMW Series 1 UK Car Review

January 29, 2015

The smallest member of the BMW range, the BMW Series 1, has sold in over two million examples since its introduction on the market, in 2004. Visually, it doesn’t strike as been particularly gorgeous, a trait that has lingered on since the car’s inception, but we’ve seen worse and honestly, it all comes down to […]

Porsche 911 UK Car Review

January 24, 2015

  Being in production for over 50 years, the Porsche 911 has become an integral part of Porsche, surpassing the title of “a model”, morphing into a true living legend. From the early developmental prototypes presented in 1963 up to the latest leaked pictures of the new generation GT3 RS, the three number code has […]

Volkswagen Microbus 2014 UK Car Review

January 18, 2015

  More than 13 years ago, Volkswagen unveiled a concept car that bore the “Microbus” moniker, a modern reinterpretation of the original vehicle – the VW Type 2 – that gained a cult following, all across the globe. First produced in 1950, the Type 2 was designed as a do-anything automobile, being capable of carrying […]

Tesla Model X UK Car Review

January 4, 2015

  First showcased in 2012 as a concept, the Tesla Model X is rapidly approaching production. According to the latest information, the production of the series model should commence “early 2015”, while the first delivered product should see the light of day approximately a year after. The silhouette of the Tesla Model X resembles, to a […]

LaFerrari UK Car Review

December 15, 2014

The most powerful model to ever exit the factory in Maranello, the LaFerrari was especially built to celebrate 70 years of racing heritage and bears tribute to the founder of the company, Enzo Ferrari. Combining intense, sculptural lines while remaining faithful to tradition, it blurs the boundaries between mechanical masterpiece and a work of art. […]

Nissan Cube UK Review

December 14, 2014

  The Nissan Cube has been, undoubtedly, one of the most peculiar looking vehicles ever to roam the streets. In an attempt to appeal to the young urban population of Japan, Nissan has introduced a vehicle with unconventional styling, that some may even call ugly. The closest counterpart, in terms of looks, is the Scion […]

Vauxhall Mokka UK Review

December 13, 2014

  The Vauxhall Mokka is arguably one of the nicest looking small size SUVs on the market today, surpassing the complicated design of the Nissan Juke and dominating the rather bland Skoda Yeti. Looking like a crossbreed between the large Antara and the Corsa supermini, the Mokka is a niche segment automobile, designed to snatch […]
