My French Love Affair

  The Clio V6 is one of the weirdest cars you’ll see on the road. It’s this tiny hatchback that’s been subjected to so much performance enhancement that it looks halfway between an LMP1 racer and a powerlifter with dwarfism. Contemporary road reviews, and even subsequent media, gave the impression that it had the attitude…

The OG WRC Champ: Alpine’s A110

Launched in 1961, the rear-engined, air-cooled, rear-wheel drive Alpine A110 shared many similarities with the iconic Porsche 911, which would be unveiled two years later. However, the A110 is by no means “just a French 911”, as this sexy little coupe would go on to become a legend in its own right. The A110 was…

The Supervillain Special: Jaguar’s XK120

There’s something intrinsically sinister about a Jaguar. Whether this impression is born from Jaguar’s association with the infamous Kray Twins, whose ride of choice was a Jaguar MK X, or the mark’s long-standing role as the transport for Bond villains such as Le Chiffre and Mr Hinx; these cars perfectly evoke the svelte ferocity of…

The Concorde for the Road: Alpina’s B10 Bi-Turbo

Described as “the best 4-door in the world” by Road & Track, the Alpina B10 Bi-Turbo was also the fastest saloon ever when it was unveiled in 1989. Priced at nearly twice the value of a standard E34 M5, it became the best selling model in Alpina’s history up until that point. However, despite its…

Alfa Romeo’s Monsters – Part 1

Since its inception, Alfa Romeo has built up a back catalogue with more beautiful cars than perhaps any other car company in history. Stunners like the T33/2 Stradale Prototipo, Duetto Spider, and Disco Volante immediately spring to mind. However, there are a few cars that, visually at least, don’t line up with the pure works…

Monday Money – The mini Vette’

Strong trio: Opel’s Vice President Sales & Aftersales Peter Küsper, actor Benjamin Sadler and racing driver Joachim Winkelhock will take the road in three legendary Opel GTs at the Bodensee-Klassik 2016.

This is a car I really love! For its simplicity, superb look which resembles a small Corvette C3 and its compact size. Unfortunately, performance wise, it would have needed a bit more punch… But even with the original engine, I am sure it would be an absolute joy to drive. It never came out as…

Will that be 6, or 12 of you?

Born in 1975 and based on the XJ platform, the XJS is still a very desirable car today and has seen its popularity and prices climb up in the past 5 to 7 years. The design is the work of the Jaguar team but was initially started by Malcolm Sayer to whom we owe the…

A mini Ferrari Spider? Sort of…

If you are in the market for a classic 2+2 convertible with a timeless Pininfarina design, and a punchy little engine then look no further, the Fiat 124 Sport Spider is the perfect match for you. It debuted in 1966 and was based on the Fiat 124 Coupe and Sedan shortened platform as well as…

Monday Money!

Another Monday Money, and another 4WD Turbo 90’s car… but this time from Germany… Based on the subjectively tasteful Audi 80 Avant, the RS2 is the very first RS badged car, and first sports Avant released by Audi. It was designed and assembled in partnership with Porsche between 1994 and 1995 at their Rossle-Bau factory…
