Lexus LS

The original LS was launched 30 years ago and was ground-breaking at the time. The executives at Toyota wanted to launch a brand to take on the Germans; the LS was a direct competitor to the S Class. The LS was Japan’s answer to luxury motoring, it was not only bullet proof and extremely reliable,… Read more »

Kia Stinger

The Korean invasion from Kia has been very much under the radar. They came to the UK selling quite boring looking, cheap cars with a great warranty. A break through was in 2006 when they launched the Cee’d; this car was a real wake up call for European manufacturers. It matched its competitors for quality… Read more »

BMW X2

I haven’t driven a BMW for a while and I relished the chance to drive the new X2. I was surprised to learn Mercedes have beaten BMW to be the Global Premium Brand. This has been BMW’s title for quite a while now, but they are fighting back yet an onslaught of new cars. The… Read more »

VW Arteon

The last large expensive VW saloon I remember driving was the Phaeton. This huge and expensive car was aimed at stealing sales away from the S Class, it was full of tech and gadgets but it just didn’t sell in the numbers VW expected it would. I suppose where I’m coming from is if you… Read more »

Lexus LC

I was amazed to read Lexus have been around for 28 years, they launched the LS which was aimed squarely at the Mercedes S Class. It wasn’t the most beautiful looking car but it was filled with gadgets and they were always the most reliable cars around. Add to this a level of customer service… Read more »

Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio

Any petrol head will tell you that until you’ve owned an Alfa you aren’t a proper petrol head. Alfa’s have never had the best reputation for build quality or reliability but they have made some stunning looking cars that also drive really well. As you may expect, I’ve owned one Alfa, I bought a 156… Read more »

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 »
