Keating Bolt, world’s fastest car?

Written by Simon McBride ▼

When I heard Keating was back with a car capable of a top speed of 300mph, I nearly choked on my coffee. You see, I was at the original launch of Keating and the unveiling of the TKR and the SKR models. Keating held the launch on St.George’s day, 23rd April 2008 and boasted that this English supercar was about to take on the establishment. Unfortunately for Keating, the launch was a flop.

We were only treated to passenger runs up and down an airfield...

Carspotting - TVR S Series

Written by Stephen Goldasz ▼

Today's edition of MotorTorque's #carspotting feature looks at another classic convertible sports car from a defunct brand. This time it's the turn of the TVR S Series from Britain. The TVR S Series was originally unveiled back in 1986 at the NEC Motor Show at Earls Court, London.

The TVR S Series was built from 1986 and up until 1994, in that time it's reported that 2,604 units were manufactured. In its lifespan up to six specifications of the S Series were...
