Skoda is a brand on the rise and rise

Make no mistake “Made in the Czech Republic” is something of a quality tag these days, especially when it comes to carmakers.

Honda CR-Z Sports Hybrid Preview

The UK press pack says, “The CR-Z is exciting to drive, great to look at and has a healthy respect for the environment.

Unlikely to ever be confused with the English Electric Lightning supersonic interceptor, you’re looking at the world’s first fully electric proper Gran Tourer (the Tesla is not a GT) and it’s appropriately called the Lightning. ‘Appropriately’ because this thing is all electric and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in less than five seconds and has a top speed of just over 200km/h...

Ford Fiesta is best Diesel Car in the UK

The UK’s Diesel Car magazine has named the Ford Fiesta as its Best Small Car of the Year 2010. Given its ultra cool styling, performance and economy, we think that’s hardly a surprise, especially when you take into account the UK sales charts, which list sales of no less than 43,611 Fiesta’s already sold this year...

Lexus and GAZOO Racing at Nurburgring 24-Hour Race

If you haven’t heard of the Lexus LFA and drive a Toyota, then I’m going to forgive you, despite the fact that the Toyota Motor Corporation own Lexus and the LFA is the company’s first bona fide supercar.
