Audi R8 4.2L V8 Review

Audi R8 4.2L V8 Review

If men were cars this particular motor would have Vin Diesel's body, Brad Pitt's face and Daniel Craig's arse.  I know my dream man is half black, half white and has a combined age of 125, but the point I'm making is that the R8 is a fantasy come true, take-your-breathe-away styling coupled with road dominating performance.  As sports cars go it ticks all the boxes, beauty, brawn, power, stability and desirability.

Jaguar XK Review

Jaguar XK Review

Bless the XK, it’s been a firm favourite of mine for the past 5yrs, stunning to behold, powerful yet controllable and captivating to both drive and be a passenger in.  I just love its low slung ‘on-the-prowl’ aggressive styling and punchy performance. You could be forgiven for thinking that the 2010 model line-up for XK hasn’t actually changed, but you’d be wrong, very wrong.

Bentley Continental GT Review

Bentley Continental GT Review

Some might say that having over £300,000's worth of luxury sports cars / super-cars parked on the drive means I have an amazing job.  So is it a fair review, a Bentley that has a phenomenal 600bhp being compared to the BMW M6's 550bhp?  The Bentley does 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds, the BWM takes 4.6 seconds, so it's safe to say that within the first paragraph of this review we have established that the Bentley is quicker.  Woo-hoo, I've confirmed something that both manufacturers already knew!  However this isn't a verse review in the normal vein of verse reviews, here's the kicker and what this review is actually about….. is an extra 50bhp and shaving 0.1 of a second of the 0-62mph time worth an extra £70,000?
