All of the necessary evidence has now been submitted to confirm the 964-strong meeting of Ferraris at Silverstone to be a Guinness world record. Felipe Massa led the parade at the wheel of a 458 Spider, while the 964 cars shattered the ...

If you're a Bond chase fan, this Sky promo video ...

We originally ran this story in March 2012, but the BBC moved the schedule. It's now been confirmed the documentary will run this Sunday 8 July 2012 at 8.00pm (BST) after the British grand prix.

Some people will scoff at this, but I like to think of myself as a fair and considerate driver: I don’t undertake people, I don’t tailgate (okay, I sometimes give dodderers a gentle push out of the fast lane, and there’s another caveat below, but bear with me), I stick to my urban speed limits, and on motorways and dual ...

Amongst the stars of the 2010 Geneva motor show (Porsche 918 Spyder, Pininfarina 2uettottanta, etc) there were also some utterly awful cars. The worst was the Mansory Rolls-Royce Ghost, a blue and gold monstrosity but with floor mats that didn’t match the external colour scheme.

I drove Audi’s R8 last week. Yes, yes, I know it was launched ages ago but I somehow missed every opportunity to drive it over the past 18 months. And every R8 road test that I read – and hell, it seemed there’s been a new one each week – only whetted my appetite for a punt in Audi’s first ...

With oil at $130 a barrel, petrol at £1.20 a litre, our roads traffic clogged, our police force ever more vigilant against ‘speeding’ and eco green taking over from Italian racing red as motoring’s colour of choice, whither the supercar? Well fear not, anxious reader. The supercar will be just fine. We’ve been here before. The ‘oil’ crisis of the ...

My 21-month-old son already has an unhealthy obsession with all things four-wheeled: tractors and cars, lorries and trolleys. You name it, he loves it. Pushing them around the floor. Up table legs. Along beds. And you know what? His favourite mode of four-wheeled transport appears to be the supercar. I should hasten to add that I’m not forcing my son ...
