Citroen 2CV racer put through its paces - video

The idea of racing one for 24 hours is a bit insane as well, but that hasn't stopped a cast of crazy Citroen fans in the UK.

Harris is a card-carrying member of the 2CV fan club – he actually owns one – so it's not an unbiased review, but it makes for great viewing.

RUF SCR revealed in Geneva

Almost exactly one year after revealing the reborn CTR in Geneva, RUF has whipped the covers off its big-money, lightweight take on the Porsche 911. Meet the SCR, a nod to another of its famous tuned Porsches from the 1970s. The original was released in 1978, with power from a 3.2-litre flat-six making 162kW. It ran with dark green paint and a prominent whale-tail spoiler, along with bigger cooling ducts all around.
