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.

MG have just taken back their very promising SUV - The GS, a premium crossover vehicle with a price tag just over £20,000 for a top of the range edition, the equivalent VW is over £32,000 - we travelled over 800 miles rigourously testing every element of the car, find out below what we thought in our MG GS Review.
 

FOS Ferrari Extravaganza 70th Anniversary

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.

MG XS Debuts At London Motor Show 2017

The 2017 London Motor Show has had its fair share of official unveilings, one of the highlights for us was the debut of the MG XS. A compact crossover SUV making the perfect addition to the MG line up fitting into the competitive growing crossover market. This latest offering gives buyers a larger option over the MG3 and a smaller alternative than the GS.

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"

Intro to the Vauxhall Lineup for 2017

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.

There are a few misconceptions about us who live in Texas, USA.

First drive:- MG GS SUV in 2 weeks

It's literally only weeks till our latest car review the MG GS and we have it for a week, and we've prepared a week long challenge for the SUV more about that later - This is the first SUV offered from the classic car manufacturer and tuner MG who have now moved production East, cleverly we've managed to coincide our review of the GS with our coverage of the City Concourse in London.

Mk2 Golf GTI 16V Review

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.

Aston Martin Vanquish S: Red Arrows Edition

Aston Martin Vanquish Red Arrows

The Vanquish S is a stunning car in it's own right, however this particular incarnation is a new level of beauty.

Possibly one of the prettiest Aston Martins ever made, in my opinion. The Red Arrow inspired car is one of only ten being commissioned by Aston Martin, all featuring unique exterior and interior styling, all in the name of the RAF's most prestigious aerobatics team.
