Triumph TR6 PI Driven

They say you should never meet your heroes and certainly in the case of film stars who are better at delivering killer lines than holding engaging conversations that might well be the case, but in driving a Triumph TR6 PI for the first time I was left in no doubt about this car’s iconic status.

BMW 8 Series Driven

Claus Luthe designed some of the most iconic BMWs of all time like the E30 and E36 3-Series as well as upgrading already established 5 and 7 Series models and so when he penned or more likely CAD’d the BMW 8 Series did he also leave behind a legend? Well despite some views to the […]

VW T2 Camper Van Driven

There is nothing cooler than a VW T2 Camper Van and so we borrowed one from classic-campervans.co.uk who operate out of Classic Car Club London’s N1 base for the weekend to find out exactly how cool. Ice cool, as it turns out, judging by the waves, positive feedback, adulation and general interest our 2007 Danbury converted […]

Chevrolet Corvette C3 Driven

The Chevrolet Corvette C3 is a car that combines serious muscle power with sublime handling and powerful brakes to bring the fight not only to the Ford Mustang, but also Porsche 911 and Jaguar E-Type.

Morgan 3 Wheeler (M3W) Driven

Morgan has always kept tradition high on its agenda, but in re-launching the Morgan 3 Wheeler the Malvern based niche sports car manufacturer has gone straight back to its 1910 roots. No one can dispute how Morgan cars have kept traditional techniques, involving Ash, elliptical rear springs and sliding pillar front suspension alive for over […]

Ford Mustang GT Driven

In 1964 Ford hit the jackpot, they had learnt in the past all about producing cars in volume, the Model A for instance, and latterly about attractive design, think T-Bird. But in the April of ‘64 they combined these two things to devastating effect in the hugely successful Mustang, something that was well worth celebrating […]

Jaguar XKR Driven

Some cars propel you to sixty miles an hour like a scolded cat and then seem to run out of puff. The Jaguar XKR is not one of those, although if taken by the scruff of the neck it will leap off the line like the proverbial fast feline with hot paws. Mostly though it […]

Audi UR Quattro Driven

Whether you felt the full force of the original Audi UR Quattro rally car that dominated so strongly in the 80’s or enjoyed the BBC television series ‘Ashes to Ashes’ based in the same decade, you cannot help but be fired up when someone mentions the word ‘Quattro’.

Alfa Romeo Sud Driven

Alfa Romeo cars pull hard on your heart strings all while your head tries to stem the desire of buying a classic Italian with all the inevitable risks that may bring.
