  • Peugeot 207 1.6 HDI (2006) review

    Price:  £13,015

    07 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Hang on, isn't that a 307? You're not far off. The new 207 doesn't just share the bigger car's styling but also gets tantalisingly close to its proportions too. It's 208mm longer than the 206 it...

  • Mercedes CLS63 AMG (2006) review

    Price:  £73,997

    04 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Another fast Merc? What makes this one special? This is the new CLS63, using the all-new 6208cc V8 already fitted to the CLK and E-class and rolling out across the Benz line-up. It replaces the...

  • Aston Martin DB9 Sports Pack (2006) review

    Price:  £109,345

    02 August 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A special edition Aston, I thought that stuff was reserved for run-out Corsas. You've got the wrong end of the stick, the Sports Pack is an option for Aston owners who prefer to zoom than dawdle. The...

  • Porsche 911 Turbo (2006) review

    Price:  £99,920

    02 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Another Porsche 911 variant? Yup, they've been coming thick and fast, but none faster than this - the eagerly anticipated, four-wheel drive Turbo version. It's the most advanced, refined and rapid 911...

  • Mercedes GL500 (2006) review

    Price:  £66,522

    02 August 2006 by Georg Kacher

    I'm imagining loads of huge new Benzes appearing at random, a different one wherever I look… Calm down. Deep breath. You're not hallucinating - there really are new Mercs every which way at the...

  • Noble M15 (2007) review

    01 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    The M15 is Noble's slant on an everyday supercar. With it, the British sports car maker wants to take on the Porsche 911 GT3, but at £74,590, the Noble undercuts the Porker by £4500. By taking a swipe...

  • VW Eos 2.0T (2006) review

    Price:  £19,370

    31 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    A drop top VW - how desirable. I take it the people's convertible is back? Yes and no. True, the Eos is from the people's car maker and it effectively replaces the old Golf cabriolet. But that...

  • Mitsubishi Evo IX FQ360 (2006) review

    Price:  £33,421

    31 July 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Yet another FQ car from Mitsubishi - aren't these faux-rally cars a bit out of favour at the moment? True, but after ten minutes behind the wheel of the UK-only FQ360, you’ll wonder why. It's an...

  • Mercedes SLK55 AMG Black Series (2006) review

    Price:  £73,795

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Sounds ominous, what's it all about? AMG's gone hardcore to take on BMW’s 'CSL' and Audi's 'RS' monster saloons. From the new cutting edge Performance Studio in Affalterbach AMG has the capability to...

  • Porsche Cayman (2006) review

    Price:  £36,220

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Good grief, it's a slightly slower Porsche! What are they thinking? Not everyone can afford the £43,930 for the Cayman S. So here's a Cayman minus the ‘S’ bit and minus a handy £7710. There are...

  • Lotus Elise S (2006) review

    Price:  £24,500

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    I'm stumped. It looks exactly the same as the Elise R, so why's it here? When Rover died the entry level, K-Series-powered Elise went with it along with a loyal customer base that couldn't stretch to...

  • Audi TT 3.2 V6 quattro (2006) review

    Price:  £29,635

    31 July 2006 by Jason Barlow

    Another Volkswagen hatch in drag? Not quite. Where the old car shared too much with the Golf - to the detriment of the driving experience - this new TT is actually an ally/steel hybrid, with an...

  • BMW Z4 M Coupe (2006) review

    Price:  £42,245

    31 July 2006 by Jon Smith

    There's been a lot of talk about this being the reincarnation of the True, it's a lot less confrontational in its appearance than the 'bread van' original, but this Z4-based coupé follows the same...

  • Alfa Romeo Spider 3.2 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £31,250

    31 July 2006 by Gavin Green

    Just look at it. This has to be one of the sexiest cars on the road - regardless of price. Another beguilingly beautiful new Alfa Romeo, sparkling in the hot Italian summer sun... Pretty thing, isn't...

  • Skoda Roomster 1.4 (2006) review

    Price:  £11,505

    31 July 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Is that really a Skoda? It sure is. The Roomster is the standard bearer for a new range of design-led Skodas, which means next year's new Fabia will be far more interesting than the current model, and...

  • Ferrari F599 GTB Fiorano (2006) review

    Price:  £179,902

    31 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    That name's a bit of a mouthful. What's it all about? It's the replacement for the much-loved but dull-looking 575, a two-seat coupe based on the four-place 612 Scaglietti. The numbers refer to the...

  • Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT (2006) review

    Sport GT? Explain please? Maserati has expanded its big saloon range, adding two new models to sit alongside the regular Quattroporte: the luxury-angled Executive GT and the performance-focused Sport...

  • Ford Galaxy 2.0 (2006) review

    Price:  £19,495

    28 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    A new Galaxy. Where does it fit into Ford's burgeoning array of MPVs? It's quite simple really. The Galaxy is Ford's top-end people carrier, a genuine seven seater with a tall roof, heaps of cabin...

    Good grief, another MPV! Why should I care? I'll set the scene. We're just north of Seville on some of the best, most challenging and downright scary roads Europe can offer. The latest Porsche 911 was...

  • Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon 3.2 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £29,550

    28 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    159? Looks like a facelifted 156? If that were true it would be the worst facelift since Burt Reynolds' went Asian last year. Actaully it's not unattractive, it's just that the 156 was so gorgeous.
