GOB SMACKED… I absolutely love a well modified E30, and the one on the cover of this magazine is exactly that, but it wasn’t the E30 that I planned to be the linchpin of this issue… Nope, if you had read last month’s Arse End, you would have seen that Midge and myself popped down to Goblin Works Garage for the unveiling of their latest project, a rather mental and wide-arched E30 built for the launch of the new TV series that’s due to hit our screens any day soon. But as with TV and modifying, just 12-hours before we were scheduled to arrive at Goblin HQ, they pulled the plug on the shoot because they were in the middle of making it more awesome; great for them, not so great for…

mountune & fifteen52 team up

Collaborations are always a bit of a mixed bag. When Kirsty MacColl randomly decided to team up with lovable toothless drunks The Pogues, they somehow created the best Christmas song ever. New Order roping in John Barnes for ‘World in Motion’ was a bizarre masterstroke too. Apple teaming up with Bono to force everyone who bought an iPod to have the new U2 album – not quite such a great idea. But it’s safe to say that when such legendary names as mountune and fifteen52 partner up, the results can only be brilliant. Mountune was founded in Essex by David Mountain back in 1980. Mountain had won the Junior Autocross Championship at the age of 15 back in 1973, behind the wheel of a 105E Anglia, and has had petrol coursing…

mégane rs trophy-r is as fast as a lamborghini

Nürburgring records can be a bit confusing. Every manufacturer wants to claim that their car is the fastest [something] around the ’Ring – there’s a record time for the fastest FWD car, the fastest coupé, the fastest SUV, the fastest hybrid… more records than you can comfortably name, until it all gets a bit meaningless. What’s more helpful is to benchmark a car’s time against another car’s so you can realistically compare – so try this one on for size: Renault’s recently unveiled Mégane RS Trophy-R has posted a bridge-to-gantry time of 7:40.1, which is identical to the time set by the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640. Alright, that’s not a current-model Lambo, but it’s still a flippin’ V12-engined supercar. Hot hatches shouldn’t be this quick. How have Renault achieved this miraculous performance?…

van wilder

Transit vans are a necessity of life – they’re like oxygen or Oreos, the world just couldn’t operate without them. But that doesn’t mean they have to be boring, right? Sure, it may be necessary to cart things around for work purposes, but it’s nice to be able to do so with a little panache (and speed, that goes without saying). So it’s MS-RT to the rescue! This South Wales-based tuning firm has already established itself in the Tranny firmament with their souped-up Transit Custom, and now they’ve launched the MS-RT Transit Connect to entertain professionals who need to carry slightly smaller things around. You get a full bodykit including rear spoiler and diffuser (yeah, proper race car style) along with 18-inch OZ Racing wheels, stainless quad exhausts, and a…

appreciating depreciation vauxhall corsa vxr

Then: £15,995 Now: £3,000 The Corsa D VXR (that’s the one made from 2007-14) is looking like a bit of a bargain right now. As you’d expect of a hot hatch with a VXR badge, it’s a proper little firecracker, with the standard spec including a 1.6-litre turbo motor which serves up a meaty 189bhp and 192lb.ft, genuine 140mph potential and a 0-62mph time of 6.8-seconds. You also get some very cool Recaros, swanky climate control and a pretty decent audio system. It’s a really tuneable thing too – Vauxhall themselves got in on the action with the factory 888 tuning pack, which provided AP Racing brakes and a few suspension tweaks, and if you’re lucky enough to find a VXR Nürburgring Edition, you also get a Drexler LSD, Bilstein dampers, forged…
