TVR has just unveiled the V8 Cosworth powered Griffith at Goodwood Revival, the much-loved British car manufacturer famed for their light weight and powerful high-end sports car. In 2013 we saw the end of TVR as we know it and became TVR Automotive Ltd. This means the latest offering from TVR is big news as this is the first mass produced TVR in over 10 years being the make it or break it car for TVR. Here is some headline figures, a better power to weight ration than a Porsche 911 Turbo S, a full carbon fibre body and a Ford Cosworth V8 which will push the car over 200mph.

Ferrari 70th anniversary FOS

The Goodwood FOS is the epitome of motorsport heritage, the Festival of Speed event is fast approaching in only five weeks, we will be trackside ruminating in all things automotive.

The theme for this year's show is Peaks of performance - Motorsports game changers, celebrating the fastest, most powerful and most expensive and or complicated racing machines and the reins which they broke and how that affected the rules governing these beasts and how the official rules had to be changed e.g. Group B rally.

Bentley GT3-R

Bentley Continental GT3-R


We all love to celebrate when we've had a victory. Why would a manufacturer of luxurious cars react any differently?
 
The absolute perfect Bentley (in my eyes) was created by the Bentley Motorsports Division, the same team that won first place at Silverstone in May 2014 Blanc Pain Endurance series, with their #7 M-Sport GT3. This gave the Bentley fan something to hold, with which to celebrate this victory - The Bentley GT3-R.

Earlier this year we reviewed the impressive Vauxhall Corsa 1.0T which we believe to be the best sporty alternative to the Ford Fiesta, however Vauxhall aren’t stopping there, they showcased an impressive line-up of cars at the London Motor Show for a range of markets. The real contenders are in the compact crossover (sports utility vehicle) the Crossland X and latest generation executive saloon the Insignia Grand Sport.

RR seem to be heading back into coachbuilt cars, and with it follows the release of a one-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail which has just made its formal debut at the Concourse d'Eleganza rather unsurprisingly this has caused quite a stir in the automotive world.

This coachbuilt one-off Rolls-Royce is completely bespoke designed and crafted for one special client who by all accounts has according to RR "an outlandish love of opulence and is described as con is your and collective distinctive one-off items including super yachts and private aircraft"

Volkswagen Golf GTI 16V


Classic cars are all the rage so we thought it was about time to review one of the upcoming classics the Volkswagen Golf Mk2 GTI, the hot hatch legend if you will, this particular Mk2 is our very own car, the 16 valve 1.8. The older Golf cars have now become iconic fast catching up with the Beetle etc, they are now a very desirable car, classic and retro and of great interest to the classic car collector.

Now as you would expect this Golf isn't like the new ones as you'd expect, however how different do you think it really is? The answer is extremely different, it's considerably bigger, especially the later models, no driving assists and nowhere near as economical, but a whole lot more fun.
