Well, it’s been quite a month on Fast Car. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced an issue like it. At the heart of the fun and games was picking the car to spearhead this Japanese Special. My original plan was to run the Voomeran Mk2 Golf that took 2019’s Tokyo Auto Salon by storm. Voomeran is a popular Euro/ Vag tuning shop in Japan and sticking a German car on the cover of our annual Jap Special really appealed to me because of the controversy it would have caused, and because it’s a cool twist on the theme. Oh, and because the car is the absolute bollocks.Unfortunately, we couldn’t make this happen in the time frame we had available but, fear not, we will be bringing you…

speed limiter legislation should we be panicking?

In a word, no. Now is not the time to panic. Although things may be about to get a little weird. You’ve probably heard in the news that the European Parliament is planning to introduce mandatory speed limiters in all new cars from 2022, which would apply to UK sales despite Brexit. The idea is to use the Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) system, which reads speed limit signs as well as using GPS data to limit a car’s speed. It gets properly Big Brother when you learn that the plan would also introduce monitoring of driver drowsiness, lane-keep assist, and a data-logger to record what a car is doing before and during accidents. It’s not just the EU that’s working on these changes either – Volvo have recently announced…

look out, m3 – peugeot’s coming for you!

The 508 Sport Engineered Concept is as nice on the inside… Fans of the brutally monstrous BMW M3 may be amused to learn that there’s a French hybrid concept nipping at its heels. And whatever your feelings on hybrids, the spec of Peugeot’s tasty 508 Sport Engineered Concept can’t be ignored. Big French saloons have traditionally been a bit of a flop – a Peugeot 605 or a Citroën C6 could never hope to compete with the ubiquitous Beemers and Mercs – but this 508 is a proper looker, and the powertrain sounds like a riot: it starts with the 197bhp 1.6-litre turbo four-pot from the 208 GTI, adds in a 110bhp electric motor, and both of these things power the front axle… then the rear end also…

appreciating depreciation bmw 335i (e92)

Then: £42,000Now: £5,000 The 335i is a hell of a mover. Its 3.0-litre turbo straight-six gives you 302bhp right out of the box, backed up by 295lb.ft of torque, and they’re decent numbers in anybody’s book. 0-62mph is despatched in 5.4-seconds, and the swoopy coupé body will fool most uninformed observers into thinking that it’s an M3 that’s just disappeared improbably quickly towards the horizon. You’ll find that the cheaper cars will probably have the automatic gearbox but we’d recommend finding a manual, which feels proper, and on the move the 335i pulls off a clever trick: its 295lb.ft of torque is an identical figure to the M3’s, but it’s all available from just 1,200rpm – which is a full 2,600rpm lower than the M3. What this means in…
