Bentley Bentayga

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. There are plenty of manufacturers wanting to milk the SUV cash cow: Jaguar, Maserati, Lamborghini, Aston Martin and there is even talk of Rolls Royce… Read more »

Mercedes GLE Coupe SUV

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 »

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 »

Porsche 718 Boxster

I was feeling the love recently when I was invited to four separate Porsche garage launches for the 718. I decided to go to our local Porsche garage at the Silverlink and it was really great to see some of the old team – yes I’m talking about you Sid! I’ve always had a soft… Read more »

Nissan GT-R

My earliest memory of driving a Nissan was buying a locally built Primera. It felt good to buy a car not only that was made locally but it was built as if it were made in Japan. The car was as dull as dishwater but its excellent gearbox and all-round reliability made this car something… Read more »

Jaguar F Pace

Readers of my reviews may remember my first memory of a Jaguar being my Uncle’s XJ with the pouncing Jaguar on the bonnet. Being a young boy at the time being enclosed in a sea of stunning leather, beautiful carpets and lashings of wood made his car more appealing than my parents’ house. Imagine my… Read more »

Infiniti Q30

I am quite sure if you were to ask the vast majority of the British public to name five car manufacturers, none of them would even dream of mentioning Infiniti. But ask the very same question in the States and I am sure quite a lot of people would mention them. When you consider the… Read more »
