  • Lamborghini Reventon (2007) review

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    You’re driving Darth Vader’s car! Yes, Lamborghini’s outrageous Reventon is unlike anything else we’ve seen. Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show last month, the Reventon is about the meanest, baddest...

    Price:  £65,000

    04 December 2007 by Gavin Green

    Nissan GT-R. Finally, the full-blown road test… Yes, after all the hype, the teaser images, the passenger rides and interviews, we’ve finally been let loose in the Nissan GT-R, one of the most...

  • Nissan GT-R (2007) - first ride review

    Price:  £60,000

    24 October 2007 by Ben Barry

    You’ve had a ride in the new Nissan GT-R, then? We have, as you might have seen on our video clip. When CAR was invited to photograph the GT-R in Hokkaido (on a strictly look but don’t touch basis),...

  • Aston Martin DBS (2008) review

    Price:  £160,000

    19 October 2007 by Chris Chilton

    I know Bond drove it last year but what’s all the fuss about? It’s a DB9 with a bodykit isn’t it? Steady on. The DBS is certainly based on the DB9 but then so is the DBR9 racer that won the GT1 class...

  • Porsche 911 GT2 (2008) review

    Price:  £131,070

    28 September 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Another yawnworthy 911? Or a yee-hah one? Definitely the latter. 911 Turbo not hard enough? Then how about removing the four-wheel drive, sir? Want to smash the magical 200mph barrier? Soak in the...

  • Ferrari 430 Scuderia (2007) review

    Price:  £172,500

    25 September 2007 by Ben Barry

    So you’ve driven the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Remind me, what is it? The Scuderia is essentially a pared back and re-focused Ferrari F430. Scuderia means team in Italian and, for Italian car fans, the...

  • Caparo T1 (2007) review

    Price:  £210,000

    30 August 2007 by Chris Chilton

    What’s this, some refugee from last weekend’s Grand Prix invading CAR Online? No, this is in fact a road car. Well it’s road-legal anyway. It’s the Caparo T1, nee Freestream, and it’s the closest...

  • Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster (2007) review

    Price:  £350,000

    24 July 2007 by Georg Kacher

    That name's quite a mouthful, isn’t it? Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster is indeed a tongue twister. And make sure you get Merc and McLaren the right way round, otherwise the men from Germany will...

  • Ford GT Roush 600RE (2007) review

    Price:  £145,300

    21 May 2007 by James Foxall

    Isn’t the Ford GT pretty tasty already? Yes it is, but this model is even more special. Ford has actually stopped producing the GT so it decided to do something exceptional with the last handful of...

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera (2007) review

    Price:  £145,000

    23 March 2007 by Georg Kacher

    What's so special about this evil-looking bit of kit? It's a harder, faster and lighter Lamborghini Gallardo, a kind of pre-emptive strike against the Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale due for launch...

  • Mercedes McLaren SLR 722 Edition (2007) review

    Price:  £350,000

    02 February 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Are you telling me this beast has 722bhp under the bonnet? Not quite. The 722 – or the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR 722 Edition to quote its full name – is a limited run of tweaked SLRs, named after the...

    Price:  £19,195

    22 January 2007 by Jonny Smith

    Nothing looks particularly different here. Where’s the change? This year heralds the 50th anniversary of the Seven. Besides making a cluster of special edition livery paint-schemed cars, the...

  • Audi R8 (2007) review

    Price:  £76,825

    18 January 2007 by Phil Mcnamara

    A mid-engined supercar from Audi – how extraordinary... Make no mistake, this is a seminal motoring moment. The R8 is Audi’s first mid-engined supercar, designed to prove that Ingolstadt can mix it...

  • Porsche 911 GT3 UK (2006) review

    Price:  £80,660

    13 December 2006 by Georg Kacher

    What's the GT3 for, and hasn't it been around for ages? We first drove the car in our dark pre-website days but thought we'd revisit it now that the first few have rolled off the boat onto UK soil. As...

  • Morgan AeroMax (2006) review

    07 December 2006 by James Foxall

    AeroMax? Looks like an Aero 8 with a roof to me Yup, that’s exactly what it is. They’ve used their traditional ash frame for the bodywork and extended it to include the roof. The craftsmanship inside...

    18 October 2006 by Chris Chilton

    So Porsche has opened the lairy paint tins again. What’s it all in aid of? It’s time for a new GT3 RS, that’s what. Though you might suspect a marketing hand in here, I’m pleased to say it’s all to do...

  • 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,...
