  • Audi TT 1.8T (2008) driven review

    Price:  £23,000

    02 May 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    Just when you though Audi were getting carried away with the TTS and TT TDI we have the much more sensible 1.8 turbo. And no, this isn’t the old car come back to haunt us, but an entry-level version...

  • Audi TTS Coupe (2008) review

    Price:  £33,390

    30 April 2008 by Gavin Green

    The new Audi TTS is the fastest and sportiest version of the iconic TT. Finally, the TT gets the performance to complement the style. Power comes from a hotter version of the TT’s existing 2.0-litre...

  • Audi TT 2.0 TDI (2008) driven review

    Price:  £26,350

    29 April 2008 by Ben Pulman

    The Audi TT TDI. Is this oil-burner from Audi another Ingolstadt niche? Or a svelte coupe and cabriolet with low-end grunt, low emissions and decent fuel consumption? A few critics of Audi's...

  • Lotus Exige 270E Tri-Fuel (2008) review

    28 April 2008 by Jesse Crosse

    At 270bhp, this is the most powerful Exige Lotus has ever built yet it is also one of the most environmentally friendly. The Exige 270E Tri-Fuel, to give it its full title, has been produced by...

  • Farbio GTS (2008) review

    Price:  £59,925

    12 February 2008 by Dan Trent

    The Farbio GTS is a dream come true. Whether childhood doodlings or merely idle musing, who among us hasn’t harboured dreams of building the ultimate supercar. It would have 2000bhp! Eight turbos!...

  • Bentley Brooklands (2008) review

    Price:  £230,000

    12 February 2008 by Gavin Green

    It is quite an extraordinary car, this Bentley Brooklands. Think of it how you will (two-door version of the Crewe’s Missile Azure T, hardtop version of the Azure), but it's definitely blindingly...

  • Infiniti G37 Coupe front three-quarter

    Infiniti G37 S Coupe (2007) (European drive) review

    Price:  £31,000

    11 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    Who are they trying to kid? Will Europeans really consider a premium car built by Nissan? Infiniti arrives in Europe in 2008 and we’re first to drive the new G37 Coupe to find out if it cuts the...

  • Lotus Exige S Performance Pack (2007) review

    Price:  £37,550

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    What? Another new Exige? Yes indeed, but don’t be expecting anything too groundbreaking: this is evolution over revolution. Essentially we’re talking 2008 model year changes here and the addition of...

    Mr Bullitt, we’ve been expecting you It was inevitable. You can’t build a retro version of America’s favourite sporty car and then ignore the fortieth anniversary of its starring appearance in...

  • BMW 635d (2007) review

    Price:  £53,910

    30 October 2007 by Richard Aucock

    A 635d? Hmm, potentially an interesting combo… Indeed. Mating the excellent twin-turbo 3.0-litre diesel to BMW’s mildly-facelifted 6-Series Coupe and Cabriolet, creating (they say) the world’s first...

  • BMW 123d Coupe M Sport front three-quarters

    BMW 123d Coupe M Sport (2008) review

    Price:  £26,290

    29 October 2007 by Richard Aucock

    We quite liked the BMW 135i, but the bulk of the 1-series Coupe sales will be diesel. How times change. The 120d boasts 177bhp (to think we thought a 1990s 325i, with 170bhp, was fast) but it’s...

  • Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione (2007) review

    Price:  £111,000

    17 October 2007 by Gavin Green

    The 8C Competizione? Always thought it was just a concept vehicle. Is it now a proper production car? Well it’s certainly about to go on sale – for a mere £111,000. Alfa is only going to make 500.

  • Infiniti G37 Coupe Sport (2007) review

    27 September 2007 by Ben Barry

    An Infiniti G37? Isn’t that just a posh Nissan 350Z? Yes and no. A lot of the G37’s basics are 350Z-derived, but this is far more than just badge engineering – the Infiniti is a very different beast...

  • Porsche 911 C2S (2007) Powerkit review

    Price:  £76,991

    20 September 2007 by Chris Chilton

    So you're saying this is a cut-price GT3? Not exactly, but there is an element of truth to that. The Powerkit is a genuine factory-fitted Porsche tuning package offered only on the Carrera S that...

  • Bentley Continental GT Speed (2007) review

    Price:  £137,500

    04 September 2007 by Chris Chilton

    GT Speed? I guess the clue is in the title... Right. Think of the Speed as a big GT GTi. It’s still offers the same luxury appeal as the original Conti GT launched in 2003, but looks meaner and goes...

  • Maserati Granturismo (2007) review

    Price:  £78,500

    19 July 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Wow! Indeed. Striking stuff isn’t it? From certain angles it’s truly sensational, particularly aspects like the taper of the nose, the A6GCS-style grille and the way the sills pinch and roll under the...

  • Audi A5 3.0 TDi (2007) review

    13 July 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Haven’t you driven the Audi A5 before? We have, but only in S5 guise, and not on UK roads. Back in April we drove the 354bhp V8 but that was Audi’s attempt to steal a little limelight from the BMW M3;...

    12 July 2007 by Ben Barry

    You’ve driven the new BMW M3 then? Oh yes. The E92 model is the fourth generation of the M3, a car that first arrived in 1986. Back then it had a four-cylinder engine with around 200bhp. The new car...
