IMAGE CONSCIOUS If I had a pound for every time I went to feature a car and the owners said, “my mate’s a photographer”, I’d have enough cash to buy a velvet cushion with my favourite car printed on it (see page 38). I think it’s great that the Instagram era has brought photography to the masses but there’s a huge difference in photographing cars for a profession and guys posting shots of their mate’s cars on Insta and then going back to their day job in the morning. So when Max Hawkes, the owner of this month’s awesome Mk3.5 Golf cover car, turned around and said he knew a photographer who’d like to shoot his car, I kinda brushed it off as usual – until I actually the looked the…

SLIM JULES EDITOR “My favourite car in this issue? I’ve already said above. But if I had to choose I’d take the Model A.” MIDGE CONTRIBUTING EDITOR “My favourite car in this issue is obviously my Daihatsu Sirion – but the Mk2 Fiesta is definitely a close second!” INITIAL G ART EDITOR “It’s the Model A for me too. I had one as my first car when they first rolled off the production line.” GLENDA WEBSITE EDITOR “Well, there’s no Audis in here this month, so I’ll have to go for Max’s Golf as that’s the nearest thing to Germany’s finest.”…

new corvette is a full-bore ferrari-chaser

The Chevrolet Corvette is such an important and iconic feature of the motoring landscape; it’s hard to imagine a world without it. The name first appeared way back in 1953 on a pretty little roadster, named after a warship and toting a choice of straight-six or V8 motors, and it kicked off a tradition that’s been underpinning automotive culture ever since. Whatever else has been happening in the world, we’ve always been able to rely on the fact that the Corvette is a plastic-bodied sports car with a big engine in the front, power going to the back, and so much baked-in Americana that it might as well be made from apple pie. …Until now, that is. Because the all new C8 Corvette is here to shake things up. It doesn’t…

bbr throws a load of affordable power into the mx-5

Brackley-based BBR has been tweaking Mazda MX-5s from the start, and when they develop an upgrade package you know it’s going to be good. The ND-generation model has been with us for a few years now, which has allowed plenty of time for the aftermarket to really refine their offerings as well as the used value of these cars to dip to some pretty acceptable levels. The upshot of all this is that you can pick up an early ND for under £10k, then talk to BBR about tweaking it up above the desirable 100bhp-per-litre level. The company also claim that this is the first time they’ve been able to make these numbers without having to change any engine internals, which tells you how good those new-gen SkyActiv engines are… The…

lotus unexpectedly unveils ludicrously powerful car

Well, we didn’t see this one coming. You see, Lotus has always been aligned to a very strict set of principles; we all know the maxims coined by company founder Colin Chapman – ‘Simplify, then add lightness’, ‘Adding power makes you faster on the straights; subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere’… The whole point of a Lotus is that it doesn’t need to be hugely powerful, it just needs to be light enough to exploit that power effectively. So we really didn’t expect Lotus to suddenly announce that it was about to start building the world’s most powerful production car. What’s happened here is that the new Chinese management, Geely Auto, has injected a huge amount of cash and enabled Lotus to build a clean-sheet electric hypercar, which is totally unprecedented. The…
