Toyota’s Supra is Mad and Bad But Better Than a BMW Z4

Toyota’s wild and wonderful Supra is the fifth generation of this much-loved sports car and it’s also one of the maddest incarnations the Japanese carmaker has produced. However, while it’s definitely a lot more interesting to look at than it’s direct counterpart, the BMW Z4, there’s no escaping the fact that it does actually feature rather a lot of BMW in it.

The High-Tech Honda e is Your New Home From Home

The Honda e isn't just another car release. Oh no, this electric car is special, real special. From the outside it’s got looks that set it apart from everything else. Yup, we think the Honda e is pretty darn unique with the odd whiff of Honda’s heritage (think old-school Civic) combined with bang-up-to-date features and functionality. That includes digital door mirrors and flush-fit door handles no less. It’s a super-cool bit of kit. Read More >>

From Mild to Wild at Toyota’s Kenshiki Forum 2020

With everyone going mad for anything electric at the moment let’s spare a thought for hydrogen-powered vehicles. And, more importantly, the manufacturers who are brave enough to invest in the big H. After all, it's not easy to fill up with hydrogen, with a far-from-liberal smattering of just 17 pumps here in the UK alone. Read More >>

Harman’s New Audio System Lets You Create Music With Your Car

Consider yourself musical? Does that stretch to actually making music rather than merely singing in the shower? If so then you might like the sound of Harman’s bright new idea: The Ultimate Sound Machine. Although it’s really more of an innovative concept than a production reality right now, the experiment involves turning the whole interior of your car into a musical instrument. It sounds bonkers because it is. Read More >>

We Took a Deep Dive Inside Maserati’s Innovation Lab

It’s not that often a car manufacturer opens its factory floor to outsiders. Even less likely to happen is getting an opportunity to take a peek at where the real research and development goes on. Surprisingly, Maserati recently did just that by allowing journalists in to take a look around its Innovation Lab. And, to be honest, it was bigger than we were expecting with a total footprint of 33,744 square metres. With 1100 or so employees divvied up across a huge low-rise workspace in via Emilia Ovest, Modena it’s an impressive facility for sure. Read More >>

We Took Hyundai’s Different Driving Test and Failed Miserably

Judging by the high level of appalling drivers on our stupidly busy roads could regular re-testing be a means of keeping people up to speed on evolving rules and regulations? After all, bad habits creep in over time and it’d certainly be a great way to keep people on their toes. It’d definitely be a solid revenue earner too, but perhaps more importantly it might make our vehicle-choked roads a little more bearable if everyone tried that little bit harder behind the wheel.

Why You’ll Be Sitting More Comfortably on Ford’s 3D Knitted Seats

You might think that many of today’s production cars are, well, a wee bit boring; just nondescript metal boxes with not much to set them apart. But, in the future, Ford thinks you might be able to personalise your motor to suit your taste, even if you don't actually have any. Thanks to increasingly innovative materials and improved manufacturing techniques the old school interior that we’ve been used to for the last few decades might be about to change. Cars might even become quirky again. Read More >>

Nissan Gets More From Less for the Next Season of Formula E

Nissan’s brand new Formula E car made no secret of its origins, with the unveiling of its kimono-themed livery in Yokohama this week. The red, black and white design has been created to underline its Japanese roots and highlight Nissan’s ongoing commitment to its Intelligent Mobility strategy. In the same week as the Tokyo Motor Show, where Nissan had other futuristic revelations on offer, the zingy new Formula E car added a much-needed touch of colour for the soggy, typhoon-weary folks who lined up to see it.

Nissan Throws Awesome Audio Into the Mix With its Funky New Juke

The new Nissan Juke is loud, but thankfully not in a bad way. The higher specification models come with a Bose Personal Plus audio system, featuring speakers situated in the front headrests that deliver, if you’re up for it, bruising 360-degree audio while you’re driving. That’s a good thing as it provides the perfect backdrop for a spin in this spirited supermini crossover. Read More >>

Citroën Has its Sights on the White Van Man Who Overloads

Langley Park Rally School is certainly out in the sticks. So much so that even Google Maps can’t find it. Were it not for the cardboard arrows nailed to lampposts when we get close we’d probably have been rattling around the backroads of Essex, well, forever. The school sits on the site of an old WW2 airfield, and part of the course layout straddles what was the original apron where fighters would leave to take on the might of the Luftwaffe. Read More >>

Ever felt like it’s you, not your kids being taken for a ride when it comes to giving them lifts? Carmaker Skoda has come up with the Parent Taxi app, which aims to draw a line in the sand when it comes to running children around, especially during the holidays.

Electric Dream: The Red Hot Lotus Evija Hypercar That Costs a Cool £2 Million

Everything about the Lotus Evija is wild, from its outlandish styling through to its extortionate price tag. Only 130 will be built and each one will cost, er, £2,000,000 plus. That’s a lot of cash but, as you can see from the images, you get a lot of car too. Read More >>
