  • BMW 740i (2009) review

    Price:  £60,000

    28 July 2008 by Richard Aucock

    We've just been behind the wheel of BMW's new 7-series, at the company's Miramas test base. And while this 7-series might be a taped-up pre-production car, it's all but ready. So we've taken the...

  • Mercedes S320 CDI LWB (2008) review

    Price:  £59,885

    02 June 2008 by Ben Pulman

    The best car Mercedes makes? Surely it’s got to be the S320 CDI. The S-class absolutely dominates its market segment and, according to Merc, nearly 25 percent of all limos sold in the UK are the...

  • Volkswagen Phaeton car review, front picture

    VW Phaeton 3.0 V6 TDI (2008) review

    Price:  £43,515

    19 May 2008 by Glen Waddington

    The Volkswagen Phaeton is overshadowed by the Audi A8 as VAG’s luxury car and, for some, that could be its allure. If you’re interested in space and comfort more than style and glamour, the Volkswagen...

  • BMW 730Ld SE (2008) review

    Price:  £54,550

    13 March 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Big sports saloon or limo? Actually, the long-wheelbase BMW 7-series aims towards the genuine limo class. And it's huge. Huge enough to make you wonder if a 3.0-litre turbodiesel could ever be enough...

  • Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S (2007) review

    Price:  £86,400

    12 November 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Maserati model names confuse me. What’s this Sport GT S all about? According to chief engineer Paul Fickers, it’s the car the Quattroporte always should have been. There are six Quattroporte variants...

  • Audi A8 2.8 V6 facelift (2007) review

    Price:  £49,995

    03 September 2007 by CJ Hubbard

    I'm sorry, did you say this was a mid-life facelift for Audi's luxury A8? Fair enough – the cosmetic changes aren't that exciting. In fact, they're really rather difficult to spot, being limited to...

  • Lexus LS600h hybrid (2007) review

    Price:  £81,400

    07 August 2007 by Ged Maxwell

    Another hi-tech hybrid feast from Lexus? What's on the menu then? Well, if the gadget-laden LS460 isn't quite gadgety enough for you, this green LS hybrid might satisfy your appetite for technology.

  • Jaguar XJ 2.7 TDVi (2007) review

    Price:  £45,542

    04 May 2007 by Chris Chilton

    New. In what sense exactly? Okay, so neither you, I nor Jaguar is under any illusion that the ‘real’ new XJ can’t come soon enough. Current Jag execs admit that the decision to stick with retro design...

  • Maybach 62S (2007) review

    Price:  £345,687

    13 February 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    What’s this – more power for the plutocrats? In a word, yes. The £341,585 Maybach 62S - the S stands for Special, should you be wondering – gets the same mighty 6.0-litre twin turbo V12 as last year’s...

  • Maserati Quattroporte Automatica (2007) review

    Price:  £77,102

    19 January 2007 by Ben Oliver

    An auto box in a big luxury saloon? That’s hardly news… It is for Maserati. To mark the Quattroporte out as a very different, more sporting proposition to its mainly German rivals, it has only been...

  • Mercedes S63 AMG review

    Price:  £99,567

    10 October 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Hang on a tick – didn’t you drive this last week? No, that was the CL63, the coupe version of the S-class driven here. But I can understand your confusion. Mercedes has just taken the wraps off two of...

  • Bentley Arnage T (2006) review

    Price:  £178,200

    30 August 2006 by Nick Trott

    Another new Bentley? Yep, Bentley is on a roll. After Continental GT in 2003, the Flying Spur in 2005 and the new Azure and Continental GTC in '06, now we have a refreshed 2007-model year Arnage. It's...

  • 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...

  • Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT (2006) review

    Price:  £83,302

    28 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    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...
