PASSION FRUIT By the time you read these words, Midge and I will know who has been crowned champion of the Ed to Ed Build Off. I’m currently 2-1 up in the series but that could all change at TRAX, as the public will be voting on their favourite build. I mean, it’s rather like choosing between piles or genital warts – the Sirion and Alto aren’t exactly at the forefront of UK car culture but there can only be one winner. And I use the word winner loosely. Weirdly though, it’s been one of the most challenging ‘builds’ I’ve ever done, not because parts were thin on the ground but because modifying a car that you’ve got no real passion for was super tough. This was something that didn’t even cross my…

“what i do have are a very particular set of skills…”

Porsche’s new Taycan provides endless opportunities to reel off spurious Taken movie quotes in a questionable Liam Neeson accent, but this is in fact a deadly serious car. Because what you’re looking at here is the very future of Porsche itself – and, in a broader sense, the future of all fast cars. Now, Porsche’s performance credentials are unimpeachable, the company’s been making beautifully focused sports cars for far longer than any of us care to remember, and yet it’s also undeniably true that the company today exists as a volume SUV manufacturer which also happens to knock out sports cars on the side; the Macan is the Porsche cash cow, with the Cayenne shifting serious units too. And with the news that the Macan will soon be swapping to…

ikea express gobbles even more steroids

Super-fast estate cars are all the go these days, as you’ll no doubt have noticed, and Audi is the undisputed champion of the genre. After all, thanks to the old-school RS2, this whole thing is basically their fault. So it’s probably little surprise that the new RS6 is an absolute mentalist; RS6s have always been ludicrously unhinged, but the newly-announced version is genuinely terrifying – we’re looking at a mild-hybrid 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 serving up the thick end of 600bhp, which is enough to hustle it from 0-62mph in 3.6-seconds. Which is plenty fast enough for a car that’s sufficiently large enough to feasibly live inside. Indeed, it’ll smash through 124mph in under 12-seconds, and it’s smart too – it’s got aluminium subframes and a five-linked rear, RS air suspension,…

mountune’s focus rs upgrades make it more powerful than a gallardo

OK, the Gallardo isn’t a current-model Lamborghini, but we tried the headline with ‘mountune’s Focus RS upgrades make it 86% as powerful as a Huracan’ and it didn’t really scan. But yes, the relentless Ford fettlers over at mountune have been finding yet more ways to make the awesome Mk3 Focus RS even more awesome, and the latest developments to be distilled in the lab by those mad scientists are the m450 and m520 packages, the numerals in those product names denoting the bhp figures achievable. m450 replaces the stock turbo with a mountune-configured BorgWarner EFR-6758 unit, along with a V-band high-flow sport cat and downpipe, 5-ply compressor outlet/ inlet silicone elbow and stainless hose clamps. m520 builds on all this with the addition of a BorgWarner EFR-7163 turbo, upgraded fuelling,…

lamborghini attempts to make a prius, and brilliantly fails

Filthy-rich playboys rejoice: Lamborghini is building yet another limited-run special edition for wealthy collectors to lock away and never use! But don’t let the cynicism put you off enjoying this car, because it’s actually a very important model for Lamborghini. This brand has always kept its engines naturally-aspirated, when even Ferrari is bolting turbos to its mainstream motors, and Lambo’s method for keeping its brawny V12s nat-asp is to go hybrid. Don’t go thinking this means they’ve gone soft, though – the electric motor only delivers an extra 33bhp, which is a tiny percentage of the Siån’s headline 808bhp… but what it does mean is that more power is usable more of the time. The system uses a supercapacitor rather than lithium-ion batteries, which is quicker to charge and discharge…
