  • Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 (2006) review

    Price:  £9,905

    21 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Give me the lowdown This is the all-new Corsa, a car Vauxhall vows will banish the Corsa's traditional reputation of being pretty but underwhelming. It's longer and wider than today's car and weighs a...

  • Dodge Challenger Concept (2006) review

    17 August 2006 by Nick Trott

    What's this? Another retro-fabulous muscle car from the land of burgers and the brave? Oh yes. And if there's one thing that the US of A is doing better than anyone at the moment, it's producing...

  • Lexus LS460 (2006) review

    Price:  £57,102

    15 August 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A new LS? What happened to the traditional Merc hand-me-down styling? Lexus wanted to create a real identity for this one, so the 460 looks like a scaled up GS. Not unique but recognisably a Lexus and...

  • Chevrolet Captiva 2.0d LT (2006) review

    Price:  £19,995

    14 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    This is no rebadged Daewoo, unlike the other European Chevys... Spot on. The new Captiva is the first all-new model since GM bought up Daewoo and relaunched it under the Chevrolet brand. In a model...

  • Nissan Murano GT-C (2006) review

    11 August 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Hang on, have I logged on to Pimp My Ride.com? How droll. What you are looking at is a world exclusive – the first drive of Nissan's hot Murano GT-C concept car. Created by Nissan's Cranfield-based...

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee 6.1 SRT-8 (2006) review

    Price:  £41,295

    10 August 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    A Grand Cherokee at the 'Ring? Surely a fish a long way from its water… Yes, but this is the grandest of Grand Cherokees, the SRT-8. The initials stand for the skunkworks that fettled it, Chrysler's...

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder (2006) review

    Price:  £136,540

    08 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Gallardo Spyder in the UK? Does that mean leaky roof and just too damn unwieldy for our streets... You're way off target. A lot of cars simply don't translate to the UK. You drive them on (smooth,...

  • Mercedes R63 AMG (2006) review

    Price:  £74,115

    07 August 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    My, that looks a bit of a beast! You're not wrong there. Mercedes new R63 AMG, which tops Mercedes' new range of six-seat R-models, is just what you'd expect it to be. Vast, fast, luxurious and with...

  • 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...
