Tim Pollard, 14 October 2014 23:00

Don’t click away from another humdrum teaser photograph! This Audi concept car at the 2014 Los Angeles motor show is claimed to have real significance - it’s the first car to espouse ‘a new era of design’ at Audi. What, the end of the Audi jellymould? It seems so. We’ve bemoaned the homogenisation of Audi design in recent years; can ...

CJ Hubbard, 01 October 2014 00:01

It’s been captured in spy shots, shown officially in the shadows, outted as air freight and seen hot weather testing – but now we finally have proper production spec images of the new Aston Martin Lagonda saloon.

Bentley Mulsanne Speed (2014) officially revealed

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

CJ Hubbard, 16 September 2014 14:36

811lb ft. That’s how much torque the new Bentley Mulsanne Speed produces at just 1750rpm. Forget about clichéd stump pulling – sounds to us like it could tear down a house. Or uproot a cash machine. Which might be handy when it comes to refuelling the thing. As with the rest of the Mulsanne range, the new Speed is powered ...

Lagonda saloon revealed in Oman hot-weather testing official photos

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

Tim Pollard, 07 September 2014 12:00

Aston Martin has issued these first official photographs of the Lagonda super-saloon hot weather testing in Oman. It’s a strange way to showcase this new sporting limousine, but we’re not complaining: it’s an intriguing glimpse of the new four-door created just for the Middle Eastern markets in a limited run, just like the One-77. If follows on from our earlier ...

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 05 September 2014 13:00

Bristol Cars is back from the dead with today’s announcement of a new hybrid GT – dubbed Project Pinnacle – slated for launch in 2015.

Bristol Cars crashed into administration in 2011, but was snapped up by Kamkorp Autokraft, part of the Frazer-Nash group. It ...

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 29 August 2014 08:13

Aston Martin’s wedgy new Lagonda super-saloon was flown to Oman for testing this week, affording us this fresh look at the Middle East-only four-door. Oman Air publicised its role in transporting this prototype out to Muscat ‘as part of its early testing programme.’ We hope it travelled first class; the Lagonda will only be offered on sale to its wealthiest ...

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 01 August 2014 07:04

US craft modders Icon have come up with an unusual take on the electric car: the new Icon Helios is a dramatically rebodied Tesla Model S inspired by streamliners and ‘30s aircraft. Better known for modifying Land Rovers and Jeeps, Icon CEO and lead designer Jonathan Ward has now turned his hand to a more futuristic idea - making electric ...

Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II (2014) first official pictures

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Ben Pulman, 04 March 2014 10:30

Rolls-Royce doesn’t facelift or revise its models quite like the rest of the world’s car manufacturers. Instead, mere mortal, you’re looking at the Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, and the company claims, quite seriously, that the launch of this revised über-saloon ‘consolidates the Ghost’s position as the most popular car in the €200,000+ class.’ And in case you’re not feeling suitably ...

Bentley Flying Spur V8 (2014) first official pictures

Rated 3 out of 53

Ollie Kew, 25 February 2014 14:00

This is the politically correct Bentley Flying Spur. No really – the Flying Spur V8 has a downsized engine: a twin-turbo V8 rather than the existing car’s bi-turbo W12. It’ll be revealed at the 2014 Geneva motor show, along with a boosted Continental GT Speed model mustering even more power for 2014. Bentley Flying Spur V8: the details No surprises ...
