Monday Money: The Maserati 4200 GT

These days, if you were to walk into a showroom looking for a new car, £15,000 is only enough to buy you a small supermini. However, thanks to depreciation you don’t have to spend all that dough on some dingy little tin can, instead you could buy something bigger, with more leather, and Italian. Something…

Permanent Ludicrous Mode: The V550

The 90s was a wild time; Tim Berners-Lee had just invented the World Wide Web, Will Smith was still The Fresh Prince, and Aston Martin decided to hand build what would become the most powerful production car in the world, the V8 Vantage V550. During the 90s, Ford had their Budweiser-drinking, burger-munching, American flag-saluting hands…

We just can’t! Today…

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…
