  • 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...

  • 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

    Price:  £33,430

    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;...

  • BMW M3 (2007) review

    Price:  £50,625

    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...

  • BMW M3 coupe (2007) vs Audi RS4 (2007) cabrio review

    07 July 2007 by Chris Chilton

    M3 meets its nemesis So you’ve already devoured CAR’s first drive verdict on the new BMW M3 and its V8 engine and watched the video of us punishing it at the Ascari race resort, but how does it stack...

  • BMW M3 – E30, E36 and E46 driven review

    06 July 2007 by Chris Chilton

    The ultimate BMW M3 test: E30 Sport Evo v E36 Evo v E46 CSL M3. No confusion, just instant comprehension. The badge, the name, is universally understood. One letter and one number that combined are as...

  • Lotus Exige 265E (2007) review

    03 June 2007 by Angus Fitton

    It looks like a slightly more colourful Exige - what's the story? This is the Exige 265E - the fastest ever Exige and the first bio-ethanol Lotus. The digits 265 denote the 265PS power output, or...

  • Mazda RX-8 Hydrogen RE (2007) review

    03 June 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    How does a hydrogen-powered RX-8 work – and no technobabble please... It's simple. The RX-8's rotary engine can run on either petrol or hydrogen, which is stored in liquid form in a second fuel tank.

  • Mercedes CL65 AMG (2007) review

    Price:  £149,565

    22 May 2007 by Nick Trott

    Looks like a bit of a beast. Is this another warp-enabled starship from AMG? Yep. This is Mercedes’ big CL-class coupe fitted with AMG’s ballistic 6.0-litre V12 bi-turbo engine and a bunch of...

  • Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series (2008) review

    Price:  £100,000

    16 May 2007 by Nick Trott

    Black Series? Sounds posh and a little edgy. What's all that about then? AMG groups its cars into five divisions. The Black Series machines are second only to the borderline psychotic and...

    Nissan's new-for-2007 350Z is still a cracker The 2007 350Z looks the same as the old one, doesn’t it? If you look carefully there’s a bulge in the bonnet and therein lies the story. The new-for-2007...

  • Audi S5 (2007) review

    Price:  £39,825

    26 April 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Have I missed something? How can we be reading about an S5 when we haven't even had an A5? Because Audi knew BMW was going to launch its M3 this spring and wanted to spoil the Munich firm's thunder.

  • Hyundai Coupe facelift 2.7 (2007) V6 review

    19 February 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Doesn't look too bad. Someone said Hyundai Coupe facelift and all I could think of was that mess they made of the original Coupe seven years ago... We're equally relieved. This Coupe still looks...

  • Ferrari 612 HGT-S (2006) review

    Price:  £183,145

    26 December 2006 by James Foxall

    Hasn’t the 612 Scaglietti been around for a while? Yes it has. It was launched in 2004, but Ferrari has just revealed a special HGT-S pack for it. It costs a steep £7420, but that’s fairly...

    Haven’t you driven the TT? We’ve already tested the 3.2-litre four-wheel drive Audi TT, but this car’s the cut-price sibling: a front-wheel drive, 2.0-litre turbo which, at £24,625, undercuts its big...
