McLaren F1: the inside story by Peter Stevens, Gordon Murray
For a kid who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s with those cliché supercar posters on my wall, the chance to chat to Gordon Murray and Peter Stevens for the September 2014 issue of CAR magazine was both terrifying and incredibly exciting. In the name of completeness I’ll mention that Murray was the genius behind the McLaren F1, designer Stevens ...

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 28 August 2014 16:32

Jaguar design director Ian Callum unveiled his new-for-2014 Mk2 today – but this is far from his first hot-rod influenced car. Back in February 2007, CAR ran a beautiful seven-page feature on Callum’s own project at the time: a lovingly restored 1932 Ford hot-rod.

Why the Volvo XC90 changed the modern face of Volvo

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 26 August 2014 08:29

Five reasons to celebrate end of paper UK driving licence

Five reasons to celebrate end of paper UK driving licence
From January 2015 Britain’s much-derided paper counterpart driving licence is being phased out. This is A Good Thing, ending an annoying bi-partite arrangement that’s blighted drivers’ pockets for 16 years. Driving licences have been with us since 1903, when they were first mandated – but the current, annoyingly two-part licences have been in use since 1998, with a bank card-sized ...
