VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE We’re nearly there, guys. In fact, we’re so close I can smell the tyre shine. That’s right, even though it doesn’t feel any warmer, winter is almost done, and the show season will soon open its doors. By the time you read this, we’ll probably be walking around Ultimate Dubs admiring all the fresh builds. UD’s show report will be in issue 420 (on sale 27/03/2020), but what’s in issue 419? Well, as per usual, the finest selection of modified cars from across the globe. We really do pride ourselves on the diverse range of cars we publish each month; there’s not another magazine on the market that would feature a Porsche green S14 alongside a 1954 Chevy pickup and a Corsa VXR. All three are…

american tuners play cops-and-robbers

There used to be a time when 1,000bhp was seen as a really big number. No, wait, that came out wrong… 1,000bhp is a big number, a really massively big one. But it wasn’t all that long ago that it was the sole preserve of top-fuel dragsters; the idea of deploying that many horses on the road was total pie-in-the-sky. But the goalposts have shifted a long way in recent years, with numerous hypercar manufacturers touting four-figure outputs. Naturally the aftermarket is all over this, as there’s nothing more fun than schooling a multi-million-dollar bauble with a tuned-up road car, and the American muscle car fraternity in particular has become a little obsessed with the idea. Look at the Dodge Charger here – it has 1,500bhp. That’s quite a lot,…

old supras get a new lease of life

The Mk4 Supra is one of our all-time favourite rides, and if you’re creaky duffers like us it’s easy to forget that it’s actually quite an old car now – the A80 launched way back in 1993, and went out of production eighteen years ago. So when we hear stories about people’s Supra projects turning from tuning and modding efforts into restoration attempts, that all kinda makes sense. It’s not just a case of bolting massive turbos on and seeing what happens, suddenly you have to worry about obsolete bushes and discontinued window seals and what-have-you. But thankfully, with the advent of the shiny new A90 Supra, Toyota has decided to give owners and fans of the old A80 a little treat: the GR Heritage Parts initiative means you’ll be…

paul walker knew a thing or two about e36s

The late actor Paul Walker, arguably best known for his work in the Fast & Furious series, continues to influence the motoring world in 2020 as his iconic car collection crosses the block at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale sale. Walker had collected all sorts of cool stuff, both stock and modified, including an E30 M3, the Nissan 370Z from Fast Five, a big-power R32 Skyline, and a Mustang Boss 302 race car – but the big story is that, weirdly, he’d collected five examples of the E36 M3 Lightweight. This limited edition model, of which fewer than 130 were built, was a stripped-out road racer, and Walker seemed to think it had strong investment potential. He was right. The previous auction record for one of these was $145,750, but when Walker’s cars…

appreciating depreciation peugeot 207 gti

If you’re after a bargain-basement hot hatch, you could do a lot worse than the Peugeot 207 GTI. We reckon it’s a pretty canny purchase right now – after all, history has not been kind to this car; nobody really wants them and, let’s face it, they’re not particularly good-looking, are they? But there is actually a lot to love here. Powered by a revvy little 1.6-litre turbocharged motor, you get a solid 175bhp (the sister model, the 207 GT, had the same engine but detuned to 150bhp), and there’s also a pretty decent set of recliners and a reasonably amusing suspension setup. Yes, you will get tired of pub bores telling you that it’s ‘not a proper GTI’ because it doesn’t tripod like a 205, but you’ll have the…

jannarelly has a crack at the low›volume sports car market

Niche British sports cars always do well, don’t they? That’s why you can’t cross the street in London without having to jump out of the way of a Connaught Type D Syracuse or a Ronart Lightning. Alright, perhaps we’re being overly cynical – the new Jannarelly Design-1 certainly does appear to be a compelling package: the £115k ‘UK Edition’ model features a mid-mounted Nissan 3.5-litre V6 in a steel spaceframe with a carbon fibre body. It’s liberally sprinkled with Union Jacks and red, white and blue details, and the fact that it’s actually being built in Dubai means it should hopefully sidestep the peril of sinking like a stone through automotive posterity. So it probably won’t go the way of the Bristol Fighter, or the Marcos TSO. Or the Arash…
