“I don’t like the colour.” No, not a line from The Italian Job, but my mum, telling me the Fiesta test car I’d been waiting for had been delivered.
Is Lotus on the up? It certainly couldn’t have fallen much lower following the Bahar fallout, and many questioned (almost as many still question) the very future of the brand.
Having thoroughly embraced the sun over the bank holiday weekend (probably a little too much going by my rather rosy complexion) I’m feeling ready for a drive in a nice big cabriolet. Lucky, then, that I’ll be driving one soon…
When the mk1 VW Golf GTI was launched back in 1976 the car has defined a genre of fast hatchbacks that can thrill and excite, but still cut it with the likes of more luxurious and refined metal.
A consummate all-rounder, then? Well, that’s what I’m hoping to find out on the launch of this latest mk7 version with the hallowed boot badge.
I’m on an electric car launch yet again – and I’m really enjoying drinking in how manufacturers are approaching the problem of pollution in different ways, coming up with similar but subtly different solutions as a result.
I’ve driven two other EVs relatively recently – the new Renault Zoe and the updated 2013 Nissan Leaf. Both are pretty damn good. Today however, I’m currently on route to Sweden to try Volvo’s take on a zero tailpipe emissions vehicle with its updated C30 Electric.
Just how cool is the Renaultsport’s Megane Trophy V6 taxi? I mean, if a 360hp mid-engined Megane wasn’t enough, the sight of it in full taxi livery is enough to make any self-respecting petrolhead go weak at the knees.
