Range Rover Sport: Out And About

I usually hate snow. As lovely and white and virginal as it might appear on the surface, it has an underlying dark side which makes driving unpleasant and arduous. I don’t want it on my patch, it’s as simple as that; except of course when my ride is the magnificent Range Rover Sport you see in the images. When I heard that the Sport was booked it was like the sound of music to my ears. The cold white stuff would be a welcome distraction. Continue reading

Nissan GT-R: My Favourite Car Of 2015

In 2015 I have had the privilege of driving more cars than ever before. It’s been a great year and I’m grateful to all the manufacturers and press officers who made it possible. I don’t usually participate in all this COTY stuff because all the motors are different: differently designed for different people for different purposes to cater for different needs, seen differently.

Object Of Desire – The Maserati Ghibli.

MaseratiWho remembers that star of the silver screen, Gina Lollobrigida? In her heyday not only was she a fine actor but was also heart-stoppingly beautiful and very, very Italian. I’m delighted to say she is still with us today. This is the thing about Italy; the country staggers from one financial or corruption linked scandal to another yet consistently manages to turn out lasting things of beauty. It has always been so.

Jaguar F-Type Coupé 5 litre V8 AWD – Short Drive Review

Jaguar F-Type CoupeColin Hubbard continues his series: Since Tata bought Jaguar and Land Rover in 2008 both companies fortunes and successes have flourished to make them a worldwide premium brand. Look down a celebrities’ street or box office movie and both brands will be commonplace. Jaguar have traditionally been a gentleman’s car builder, making cars for the more mature professional.

Rolls Royce Ghost Series II – Short Drive Review

Is this BMW owned Rolls Royce Ghost worthy of such a claim? I’m about to sample one to see if it has the power and drama to woo and to wow me. Continue reading
