    2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2.0 AWD First Drive: Getting the Basics Right

    They named this car the Stelvio. The Stelvio Pass on the Italian/Swiss border is one of Europe’s highest and most visually memorable mountain roads. In winter it’s slippery; at any time, it’s a cascade of hairpin corners. It’s a good name for an AWD vehicle with sporty pretensions. Except if you ever drive the Stelvio, […]

    Fiat 124 Spider review: better than a Mazda MX-5?

    Fiat 124 Spider It’s been years since Fiat made a two-seat convertible, and the world has been a worse place for it. The Barchetta – based on the Punto and powered by a 1.8-litre engine – rolled off the production line at Chivasso for the last time in 2005, and since then there’s been a […]

    Fiat Tipo review: it’s cheap, but is it cheerful?

    Fiat Tipo Fiat now claims to be “one brand with two souls”. By that, it means that it makes fun, desirable cars like the sporty 124 Spider and retro 500, while also producing very sensible cars such as the Panda and now this, the Tipo. This medium-sized family hatchback market is filled with sensible cars though. […]

    Ferrari 488 Spider driven

    Ferrari’s latest V8 supercar has been criticised for sounding too quiet. Does this convertible version fix the problem? Given Britain’s love of convertibles, it may come as no surprise that the new Ferrari 488 Spider will account for well over half of all 488 sales in the UK. It’s a similar story in other major markets […]

    2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso driven: as close as you’ll get to a Ferrari SUV

    When the editor told me I was going to drive a Ferrari GTC4Lusso, I thought it would be one of those old-school, more-power-than-handling Sixties beauties, before clanging back to earth like a prancing horse into a ha-ha. Under new capo-di-capo, Sergio Marchionne, only the names have changed and the GTC4Lusso is basically a facelifted FF, […]

    Maserati Levante SUV Review

    A hornet gargling TCP through a loud-hailer; routing MDF with a blunt powertool; rapidly opening and closing a soundproofed door on a soprano with stomach cramps… These are the sort of high-revving V8-sponsored noises of which, tradition has it, inevitably accompany the rapid progress of any Maserati. Perhaps, then, the biggest shock to the system […]

    Maserati Quattroporte Review

    Everything sounds better in Italian – something the Maserati Quattroporte (literally ‘four-door’) has proved through various generations since 1963. Mainstream large saloons have serious names that would look equally at home on a submarine or piece of construction equipment – the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8 – for example. Those, along with the […]

  • Used Lamborghini Murcielago Coupe 02-11

    What’s the used Lamborghini Murcielago like? There aren’t too many supercars that can break the 200mph barrier, but the Lamborghini Murcielago is one of this very elite group. The brutish performance isn’t the only thing that’s good about it, though. The handling is every bit as awesome, thanks to unfailing four-wheel-drive traction and light, responsive […]
