Chasing The Red Line With Porsche 718 Cayman GTS

Just when Porsche fans thought that six-cylinder Boxsters and Caymans were things of the past, along comes the 718 GTS, with a magnificent 4-litre engine.   When, a scarcely believable 25 years ago, Porsche debuted the Boxster, the little roadster was dismissed by some as a wannabe, a substitute for those who coveted a full-blown 911 Carrera and its gold, black and red badge, but whose budgets didn’t quite stretch to the real thing. At the time there was more than a modicum of truth to that notion, because the Boxster then served as the brand’s entry-model, but if it gave you the idea...

Ferrari Roma Review: The Perfect Supercar For Daily Use

The Ferrari Roma, the new GT coupe from the Maranello-based supercar maker, offers a fresh, contemporary take on the carefree, happy lifestyle that came to characterise Rome in the ’50s and ’60s. Designed to be a relatively compact car that is intended to be more usable than something like its larger sibling, the 812 Superfast, the Roma is definitely more focused on being a daily driver as evidenced by the two small seats tucked away at the rear. The Roma is very different from every other model in the current Ferrari range. One word is most suitable when admiring the car: purity. From the...

Brabus’ latest limited edition is its most extreme take on the G-Wagon yet

Never thought we’d say this, but if the standard G-Class was too vanilla for you, Brabus has a flavour that might be right up your alley. The latest to join the Rocket series of projects by the German automotive tuning company is the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition, and like its name suggests is a poster child for an unnecessary amount of power and mind-blowing acceleration — two qualities more closely associated with supercars than SUVs. It’s also easily the most extreme G63 to have been made. In place of the original 4.0-litre powertrain is a 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8, retuned to give 900hp and...

Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended review: The passenger’s perspective

“Would you prefer to drive the car or to be chauffeured?” “I’d like to be chauffeured”, I wrote back to the PR, because a Rolls-Royce, I believe, is best experienced from the passenger’s seat. Also, I haven’t driven a car in a while, and the marque’s new Ghost Extended is just about the size of the Phantom. In other words, it’s a beast. The new Ghost measures a little under 5.8 metres in length, with a 170mm longer wheelbase than its predecessor. All this extra space predominantly goes to the rear, “providing more rear legroom than any four-seat sedan”, says Rolls-Royce in a press release....

The Boss is Back: The New Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Does the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class represent a total reset for the luxury limousine? We take a drive to find out. What’s the best car in the world? The answer to that question is so subjective it’s hardly worth asking, but as pimply, car-obsessed schoolboys in 1950s England we repeated it often, and almost always with the same response: “Rolls-Royce.” By the mid-1960s, though, I wasn’t so sure. By that time, I’d fallen under the spell of the three-pointed star and though it verged upon heresy to utter such sentiments, inwardly I’d increasingly feel like answering, “Mercedes- Benz.” You see,...

Royal rides: These are the cars of royals around the world

From Rolls-Royce to Bentley to Porsche, royal rides are in the league of their own. This is not only because of their regal association but also because they are usually exclusive models, customised to meet the comfort and safety of some of the world’s most powerful monarchs. Here’s a look at some of these exclusive cars of royals like Queen Elizabeth II, Emperor of Japan and King Gustaf of Sweden.

What makes the Bugatti La Voiture Noire the most expensive vehicle in motoring history?

What makes the $18M Bugatti La Voiture Noire the world’s most expensive on-road automobile, find out here. When Ettore Bugatti designed his first Bugatti in 1909, he had an unbending motto: “If it is comparable, it is no longer Bugatti”. For over a century, Bugatti has built its legacy on this foundation, and their latest automobile extravagance unveiled this summer in Geneva, toes the same line. The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is an ode to Jean Bugatti’s (founder Ettore’s son) iconic all-black Type 57SC Atlantic line from 1934, and comes with the heftiest price tag a production vehicle has ever...
