The 2000’s were the best era of modern performance car design.

The mid-late 2000’s to me were an era of absolute lunacy within car manufacturing, certainly performance cars for that matter. Audi decided that not only was a V10 suitable for their flagship RS6 but they nailed two massive turbos to it. What ensued was more than 2 tonnes of German metal with 572hp propelling itself …

The BMW E46 m3 CSL vs the 1M coupe, battle of the purist M cars.

In 2003 BMW went a little bit mad. They took the already talented E46 M3 and went about making it every bit the toy for the driving enthusiast. They managed to lose 110kgs from the M3’s kerb weight, now weighing in at 1385kgs. Lashings of carbon fibre, thinner glass and a lighter exhaust are the …

The Aston Martin Vantage is the ultimate head against heart battle.

I’ve adored the Vantage ever since I was 11 back in 2006 the “baby” yet by far the most beautiful of the range. The Aston is a very special car not by any means a supercar (V12 S aside) but there’s much much more to it than that. Beneath the beautifully sculpted architecture typically resides …

What does the cheapest Nissan GT-R in the UK owe me so far?

I get asked this question a lot and yes I know I’m only 11 weeks deep into ownership, but due to the current global situation I won’t be accumulating many more miles, or getting much further with modifying it for at least the next few months. At the time of purchase (around mid Jan 2020) …

The BMW M140i is the baby M3 hot hatch for the masses.

I was sceptical at first when my friend said he was going to spend £30,000 on a hot hatch, never-mind a rear wheel driven one with a massive engine. However 3 years on the 140 has really grown on me. The 3 litre twin scroll turbocharged straight 6 delivers around 335bhp although many dyno at …

Audi’s new RS7 is the intimidating family supercar you need.

For some time now Audi have basically dominated the “family” supercar market. They’ve spoilt us with missiles that can carry your weekly shopping, the dog and the children in style and comfort but also well exceed 155mph. I’m a little biased here I’ve had 3 RS4’s and loved them as each was faster than the …

The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is a 5 door hybrid supercar.

I’ll be blunt, for years the Porsche Panamera has been a hideous family saloon that wasn’t just mercilessly expensive it was ugly too! It had this “fat” hunchbacked targa 911 look to it I always thought. However I’m happy to report the latest incarnation seems to be a much more handsome brute, with modern styling …

Is the Bentley Flying Spur setting the benchmark for luxury road travel?

Something I’ll always find absolutely astounding is the way a car that weighs nearly two and a half tons can not just hit over 200mph, but do it with unparalleled comfort and luxury. Now I’ll admit at the age of 25 I’m not by any means Bentleys client base, however the Flying Spur is a …

My cheap GT-R gets some new shoes!

Have you ever thought about something and played it down? Then before you know you’re semi infatuated and it’s all you can think about? Well that kinda happens to me a lot, certainly with car parts. I see a picture of a car and think “I wish mine was that nice”. I’m a perfectionist and …

Why I bought my first supercar instead of a property…

So I get a lot of questions and quite frankly judgment on the cars I’ve owned, even more so with the purchase of my GT-R. So how did I get to here? Well I was fortunate that when my B7 RS4 decided to detonate it’s rod bearings I was able to make probably my smartest …
