My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

The hugely retro Caterham Sprint was limited to just 60 units and sold out in the space of just one week only.
The latest incarnation of the Caterham Seven – the retro-heavy Sprint – has sold out in the space of a week.
All 60 of the £27,995 special edition built for the UK and Europe were snapped up within seven days of the car’s unveiling at the Goodwood Revival on Friday, Sept 9.
The car, which features the same three-cylinder, 80hp Suzuki engine as the entry-level Seven 160 and features bespoke styling harking back to the mid-1960s, heralds the start of celebrations for Caterham Cars’ 60 Years of Seven celebrations, which will culminate next year.
Caterham’s Chief Commercial Officer, David Ridley, said: “We have been overwhelmed with the response to the Sprint. We knew of course it was a great product but the reaction we got is unprecedented.
“In a typical year, we’ll sell around 500 cars meaning that, with the Sprint, we’ve sold more than 10% of our annual sales figure in a week. It’s been the perfect scene-setter to our 60 Years of Seven celebrations.”
The 60th car was sold by Caterham at 11am on Friday September 16 but there is still a chance to scoop one of the immensely desirable cars via Caterham’s UK and European dealer network.
