Subaru BRZ Review – Analogue

12 Jul , 2014  

So we test drove the Toyota GT86 back in 2012, we felt it was a good driver’s car but the interior let it down. We got the chance to have its twin brother the Subaru BRZ for a whole week to see if it changed our minds. The Subaru BRZ costs £23,995. For that money […]

Jaguar F-Type R Coupe Review – Tamed beast

2 May , 2014  

Last year we tested, and loved the Jaguar F-Type range, but I have never been a fan of cabriolets…now there is a full Coupe F-Type hitting the streets; naturally we had to try it out. We opted for the top of the range V8 monster, the R. It is fitted with the same engine found in […]

17 Apr , 2014  

Peugeot’s sexy coupe has been out for a few years now, meaning it’s time for a midlife facelift. Having driven the THP 156 model last year we thought it was about time we drove its bigger brother, the THP 200. Its 1.6 litre turbo charged engine provides – yes you guessed it – 200 BHP, […]
