    Price:  £165,500

    29 October 2008 by Ben Oliver

    Not even James Bond has driven the Aston Martin DBS Touchtronic yet. Quantum of Solace is just about to open but Daniel Craig must content himself with the standard manual DBS. We’ve already driven...

  • Gumpert Apollo S (2008) CAR review

    Gumpert Apollo S (2008) review

    Price:  £275,000

    24 September 2008 by Mark Walton

    Everything you need to know about the Gumpert Apollo is there from the outset, worn on the sleeve and clearly visible the first time you look at it. Or should that be ‘stare’ at it. Compact,...

  • Corvette ZR1 (2008) review

    Price:  £108,000

    11 September 2008 by Georg Kacher

    The new Corvette ZR1 is the world’s quickest and rawest sports car – only mad supercars and insane track cars can best it. This is a bright yellow bullet, with 638bhp (making it the most powerful...

  • Artega GT (2008) review

    Price:  £60,000

    09 September 2008 by Georg Kacher

    The new Artega GT is a Porsche Cayman S rival at 911 money from a brand new German manufacturer. Delusions of grandeur? Perhaps not, because the chief advisor to the project is Karlheinz Kalbfell, an...

  • Porsche Carrera GT (2008) review

    Price:  £330,000

    04 August 2008 by Ben Whitworth

    The Porsche Carrera GT is – or was – arguably the world’s best-selling supercar. Initially Porsche planned to manufacture 1500 of the mid-engined targa-topped two-seaters, but the Leipzig production...

  • Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 (2008) review

    Price:  £147,330

    13 May 2008 by Chris Chilton

    The first baby Lambo to crack 200mph is far from all-new, but the Gallardo LP560-4 has more to offer over the old car than simply a front bumper that looks like it was pinched from a Ferrari Enzo.

  • Aston Martin Vantage N24 (2008) review

    Price:  £100,000

    21 April 2008 by Nick Trott

    We at CAR have a soft spot for the Aston Martin Vantage N24. Back in 2006 we sensed there was a story brewing when Aston Martin announced that it would enter a road-legal V8 Vantage in the legendary...

  • Mercedes SL63 AMG (2008) review

    Price:  £94,000

    09 March 2008 by Chris Chilton

    Mercedes’ SL gets a new face for 2008 but there’s far more to the SL63 AMG than simple cosmetic surgery. As the name suggests, the big Benz sports car finally adopts the naturally aspirated V8...

  • Corvette C6 (2008) review

    Price:  £45,995

    27 February 2008 by Glen Waddington

    GM sees the Corvette as a genuine Porsche 911 rival, so much so that it claims to have benchmarked this lightly revised version of the sixth-generation car directly against it. The 911. Yes, you read...

  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage N400 (2008) review

    Price:  £94,000

    19 February 2008 by Tim Pollard

    It’s a sign of the times at Gaydon that Aston Martin has produced three new models since it walked away from Ford ownership in 2007. Sounds impressive until you realise that all of them are special...
