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.

Review – The Formidable 2015 Audi TT Coupé

When people think about the name of Audi there’s a good chance they will immediately associate it with the word ‘quattro’ because that, in a way, sums up the brand. Thus it was very refreshing to drive a TT version that was front-wheel drive for a change. Further more, our car eschewed the ubiquitous DSG auto gearbox in favour of a good old six speed manual.
