Facelift fails: The worst styling updates of 2016

When brands update their cars, sometimes the stylists get it wrong. Facelifted models are supposed to add some flair to an existing model - to bring it up to speed with its competitors, or harden up some edges that may been looking a little limp on the original model.

Ferrari seeing unprecedented sales with V8 demand and growing wait lists

If you ordered a Ferrari 488 GTB or Spider today, it probably won’t arrive until late 2018. And it’s the same scenario with the California T and pretty much every car in Ferrari’s stable.

Zero to boredom in less than three seconds: Where have all the scary cars gone?

Often when people fondly reminisce about 'the good old days', the truth is, they were never really that great. But in this instance, they bloody well were. Fast cars. I mean, really fast cars. Properly fast cars. They used to be called supercars. And guess what? They were properly scary. I’m not quite old enough to be losing my mind just yet, but I’m certainly old enough to remember them...
