The famous car-turned-submarine Lotus Esprit used by James Bond in the 007 classic ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ was sold at auction last month for over £500,000 – but who was the secret buyer?
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.
Keating supercars claimed that, ‘…eight years in development, in private testing an early prototype of the sports GT broke the world speed record held at the time by Bugatti.’
Keating’s claims may have been true but we never got to test the car properly. We were only treated to passenger runs up and down an airfield...
If you love cars then the chances are you'll enjoy the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power. The event has garnered a reputation as one of the most accessible and fastest growing motoring festivals in Britain.
This week I was given the very exciting opportunity to try out the McLaren MP4-12C supercar, as part of a driving experience which took place at a track where speed limits don't apply.
Welcome to an expanded entry in MotorTorque's #carspotting series where we look at some of the best submissions of the week. Today's stars include the Ferrari 458 Italia, the original Mini, the Bentley Brooklands, the Smart Fortwo...and a Fiat Uno.
For today's addition of MotorTorque's #carspotting feature, we take a look at a British sports car, which was snapped and kindly sent to us by Twitter user Anderi.P (@AndreiQV). The model is a Morgan SuperSports convertible.
Another exciting edition of MotorTorque's #carspotting feature is here! This time we've found a stylish and classic British sports car, the Jaguar XJS coupe.
The car, which was spotted in the city Bucharest, is an old classic British sports car called the Triumph TR6.
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.
Taking inspiration from the classic UK sports car, the compact, lightweight TVR was a drop-top very much focused on the driving experience.
The car was marketed as a low priced introductory model to the TVR range and went on sale less than 12 months after its public debut appearance.
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...
In this week's edition of our #carspotting feature, we take a look at a recent creation from British car brand Lotus, the ultra-light and remarkably powerful 2012 Exige S Coupe.
This sports car was witnessed up close during our supercar film shoot in Wales last week, which you can read more about in this blog entry here. Rivals to the Lotus Exige S include other performance coupes like the BMW M3 and the Porshce Cayman R.
Based heavily on the Lotus Elise sports car, the Exige S sports a low, wide and aerodynamic aluminium bodyshell complete with a front splitter and rear wing.
While earlier models of the Exige used a small 1.8-litre four-cylinder supercharged engine, the Exige S has a bigger 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine with as much...
