Citroën launched the Ami a couple of years ago and they’re since been striking the iron since it’s so hot. This is the latest iteration, dubbed ‘My Ami Buggy Concept’ and it is, as the name suggests, a Buggy version of the Ami. The Ami is designed for “kids aged between 14 and 77” (this is … More Is this the future of motoring?
We have to figure out a way to make cars fun again. And when I say ‘we’ I mean the automakers. I mean, it’s obvious, isn’t it? New cars are too bland and boring. And it’s not because they’re electric. I think ATVs, overlanders and off-road vehicles that aren’t SUVs could be a solution. Lexus … More This is the vehicle of the future: an ATV, powered by hydrogen
The one thing you can say about an electric truck is that it is faster than a petrol- or diesel-powered truck. This is the H2 RACING TRUCK, developed by Gaussin and designed by Pininfarina. And it looks good, imho. Gaussin says this is “the most powerful 100% hydrogen and electric racing truck ever built”, set … More Designed by Pininfarina, built by Gaussin, powered by hydrogen
So it seems GM Defense, General Motor’s military division, is in talks with the DOS (US Department of Defense) and the US Army to develop an electric version of the GMC HUMMER EV, which would essentially serve as an electric Light Reconnaissance Vehicle. Would it work?
Between you and I – and everyone else who’s reading this including the people who lent me the car you see here – SUVs/CUVs are all broadly the same, and they’re all bit dull and that’s why we don’t really like them. They’re predictable, safe, solid, reliable, jack-of-all-trades vehicles with many merits and no significant … More 2022 XT4 is like other SUVs but better, and less expensive. And it’s a Cadillac
In factual terms, the Tesla Model S P100D is one of the fastest accelerating cars in the world. In Ludicrous+ mode (yes, that’s the actual name), it does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and that’s Bugatti Veyron SS territory. I know, I know what people say. Porsche people are making it very clear these days that … More With hindsight, the Tesla Model S is still the best EV in the world
A few years ago, my friends and I were driving up a mountain road on our way to a small cottage we’d rented for NYE celebration. We were using a 4WD Honda CR-V and we eventually ended up stuck on a particularly steep hill. As we were ripping our fingernails trying to fit snow chains, … More Audi RS4 review: this would be the ultimate Santa’s sleigh
Death Valley is best defined by what’s missing. A desert where nothing happens and nothing lives. The list of things that aren’t here is a saga. There’s no vegetation, just cacti and weeds here and there under a perennial patina of dust and matte blue sky, usually empty of clouds. There’s no rain and there … More Ford Mustang review : an all-American road trip in the hottest desert on Earth
Italians have always publicly professed two religions, football and Ferrari, while secretly admiring American cars. This admiration has always been hidden in plain sight and I guess we are fascinated with American cars because they are so far away from what we know and use every day. After opening a showroom in Monza in 1980, … More Militem Wrangler Ferox review : this is a bona fide head-turner even in Monaco
I started writing about cars ten years ago and I’ve done the whole thing. The endless stream of cheesy metaphors, thesaurus synonyms and epitomes. The internet is awash with blogs and car mags and I never had any ambition to become the best or anything like that. I just wanted to be on board. … More Driving the phenomenal Lexus LFA around Monaco
