Land Rover Discovery

The Discovery was launched in 1998 and it was originally launched with three doors. The five door was launched in 1990 and both cars had five seats as standard and two more jump seats were available as an optional extra. The car’s interior was designed by the Conrad group and it was classed as a… Read more »

Bentley Continental Supersports

By the time you get to read this review the chances are that the car I’m driving may have already sold out. The reason for this being Bentley are only making 710 Supersports so if you are lucky enough, I would dash to the Silverlink and order your one straight away. The original Supersport was… Read more »

BMW 5-Series

At first glance the new 5-Series looks just like a mini 7-Series, this isn’t a criticism or a bad thing because they are both very smart looking cars. The 5-Series has been around for over 45 years and it has consistently been a massive seller for BMW. This car has been driven for three million… Read more »

Volvo XC 90

My first car was a Volvo 340, it wasn’t the most obvious choice for a young lad who had just passed his test. It felt like a tank to drive and it was really heavy on petrol. A few things stick in my mind about that car, the car was built like a tank and… Read more »

For years and years now, the Range Rover has been the king off roader’s. They are so capable off road but they are also great for driving over long distances.

My earliest memory of the iconic three-pointed Mercedes badge has to be my Uncle’s S Class. Prior to buying the Merc he had always been a Jaguar fan and having been a passenger in both the S-Class and the Jag, I remember them as totally different beasts. The Jag with its lashings of wood and… Read more »

Porsche 911

I remember buying my first Porsche like it was yesterday. Looking at the adverts in Top Marques magazine I spotted this reasonably priced car for sale at the Porsche dealership in Edinburgh. I called the salesman and manage to do a deal over the phone as I didn’t have a part exchange. I paid the… Read more »

Volvo S90

Anyone who has read my car reviews with a good memory may actually remember my first car was a Volvo 340. My silver dream machine was quite old but that didn’t matter- it was my first car and I was proud as punch of it. The electric windows didn’t work and it wasn’t very economical… Read more »

Range Rover Evoque Convertible

I was very lucky to be invited to the UK launch of the Evoque convertible in Christchurch, which has to be one of the most beautiful places in England. I was there with fellow journalists who all write for lifestyle magazines, so imagine me representing Luxe and rubbing shoulders with the writers for Red magazine,… Read more »

Porsche 718 Cayman

Prior to introducing the Boxster and Cayman, Porsche was a company in big trouble. They went on to become sales phenomena, helping put Porsche back into profitability. After owning quite a few Boxsters I remember with excitement ordering a Cayman. It was always called the poor man’s 911 but personally thought it was kinder to… Read more »
