I love numbers. Some people just seem to have a flair for them and others, for whatever reason, can’t even bear to look at them. Many numbers have cultural significance and may have more or less favourable connotations, depending on where you are. But everybody seems to like the number 25. And yes, after 25 issues of a magazine, we can truly say that it is well under way, so here at GD we are very proud. We are also very proud of the 25 covers that have graced our 25 magazines and which now decorate our offices.In our new issue, as is by now customary, we take a look at some great cars. We kick off with a nice article comparing the original Porsche 356 Speedster with a scale…

90’s renault clio williams

The Renault Clio Williams set the template for all of the hot Renaults that followed it. It was powered by a 2.0-litre 16-valve engine for an excellent power to weight ratio, ditching the vogueish need for a turbocharger. The Williams was uprated over standard Clio 16V by 200cc and 150 bhp. Even though it was called the Clio Williams, the F1 team played a minimal role in the development of this car. The transformation was carried out by Renaultsport, the firm’s motor sport arm. Originally, a limited run of 2,500 Clio Williams was planned, but, due to overwhelming demand, the company saw an opportunity and continued building them reaching a total production of 12,100 vehicles. The Renault Clio Williams’ DNA was rooted in motor sport. It was named in honour of Renault’s…

porsche 356 speedster

Any survey among Porsche drivers on which is the most charismatic and iconic model would surely have the 356 Speedster among the top results. So, lets park the surveys and concentrate on what we really like. The Porsche 356 Speedster was introduced in 1954 after Max Hoffman advised the company that a low-cost, no-frills convertible could do well on the US market. With its low windscreen (which could be removed for weekend racing) and tiny foldaway top, the Speedster became an instant success, particularly in California. Although the Porsche 356, with its small engine, was never a very fast car, the lighter Speedster improved its dynamic performance much more. Initially, in 1954 and 1955 they were fitted with smaller engines, but the 1957 model, like the one shown here, had a punchy…

top less audi

What is about Audi that is so appealing? The question may be a simple one, but the answer is complex. Long and complex. Audi has built up a very solid image after many years of bringing out superbly balanced cars. This balance translates into trust. And this trust, in turn, translates into an extremely loyal customer base, reassured by the solid, understated progress of the brand. A brand characterised by a pleasant, friendly, but nevertheless serious, dependable image. As attractiveness goes, convertibles have an extra magnetism, promising drivers a different experience and a greater intimacy with the environment. So, if we combine Audi and cabriolet, the success is guaranteed. Without a doubt, both the Audi A3 Cabriolet and the TTS Roadster have their own sex appeal. Two different approaches to top-down driving, with…
