  • Porsche Cayman S (2006) review

    Price:  £44,250

    24 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Ahh, the Porsche Boxster coupe. Yes, it's been a long time coming but I think Porsche would rather you didn't mention the B word if you don't mind - just in case people start questioning why the...

  • Volvo C70 T5 SE Lux (2006) review

    Price:  £33,250

    24 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Ah, a convertible. One for the hairdressers or a car that's hair-raising to drive? The jelly-like first generation C70 convertible was a Nicky Clarke special: it looked good and had a decent stereo...

  • Porsche Cayenne Turbo S (2006) review

    Price:  £81,565

    24 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    The Porsche Cayenne Turbo, doyen of the noveau riche and Premiership footballers. What's new about this? This is no 'ordinary' Cayenne Turbo, not that there's much ordinary about a 444bhp SUV that...

  • Seat Leon FR (2006) review

    Price:  £17,250

    23 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    I'm confused, does the FR replace the old Leon flagship, the Cupra? Nope, that's still to come. The FR fills the gap between the standard, 147bhp Leon and the 237bhp Cupra due here early next year. So...

  • Renault Clio 197 (2006) review

    Price:  £15,995

    21 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Hot hatch What's this ball of testosterone? It's only the most eagerly anticipated hot hatch of the year. Successor to the 182, the Clio 197 is the first of the small fast Renaults to use the new,...

  • Jaguar XK8 Coupe (2006) review

    Price:  £60,097

    21 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Jag XK? Looks like a re-badged Aston DB9 to me! You're excused. The new XK is the work of Ian Callum, the man responsible for DBs 7 and 9. After a slightly acrimonious departure from Gaydon he decided...

  • BMW Z4 M Roadster (2006) review

    Price:  £43,795

    20 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    So, Munich's TVR is back? That's right, but this one's a bit more sophisticated than the Z3-based version from the late 1990s. It's got the current M3's multi-award-winning straight six and no trace...

  • Mini Cooper S Works GP (2006) review

    Price:  £22,000

    20 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Another fast Mini? I can't keep up... This one's a bit special, a road-going evolution of the Cooper S Challenge race cars. Or, as the cynical might say, merely a PR stunt designed to maintain...
