With the New York Auto Show in full swing, Mini brought their all new Mini Countryman to the party to be unveiled to the world for the first time. And just as we suspected, the new Coutryman is as great as its predecessor.
At first glance, one might think “have they actually changed anything?”. Well the answer to that question will be yes, they have. although not that apparent, the changes to the Mini Countryman are good, and will no doubt please any existing Mini fan.
The exterior almost looks exactly the same. However, upon further inspection, one can see the slight (yet thoroughly effective) design changes on the Mini’s outer shell. (more…)
Look, one thing we know for sure is that Chris Harris knows a lot about cars. Also that he has had some of the most incredible opportunities in the world when it comes to driving some of the most expensive, powerful and beautiful cars in the world.
Wouldn’t it be interesting to see then, which of the legions of cars that he has driven, is his ultimate favorite? Of course it would.
Well, get ready to be surprised because it’s definitely not what you thought. Forget all the Lamborghini’s, McLaren’s and Ferrari’s… no, Chris has chosen something rather unusual as his favorite car of all time – an old Citroën 2CV. (more…)
We all know the game of Jenga. The game where you remove wooden blocks stacked on each other one by ne and hope and pray that you are not the on to cause the tower to come crashing down.
Well, imagine this game being played on a greater scale – and by greater scale we mean super large blocks being moved by huge Caterpillar machines instead of humans.
This is exactly what the company has done with their latest advertisement. Under the tagline “Designed to get it done no matter what it is”, the huge Caterpillar machines, which include an Escavator and Telehandler, play a friendly game of Jenga.
The ad is shot beautifully and it is actually really interesting to watch. You’ll be on the edge of your seat once one of the machines pulls out two blocks from the bottom row.

There has been much talk about Land Rover’s new concept vehicle, the Discovery Vision. The new car in Land Rover’s Discovery line, has a definite futuristic feel, and is also the official partner of Sir Richard Branson’s new Virgin Galactic space travel program.
The new model was unveiled ahead of the New York Auto Show, which takes place from the 18th to the 27th of April, at a special event held aboard the USS Intrepid in the Big Apple.
Just to add a bit of glamour and dramatics – and to tie in with the modern and futuristic feel of the Vision – the actual Virgin Galactic spaceship served as a (scene stealing) backdrop for the event.
Simply put, the Vision concept is stunning. Not that we would expect anything less from Land Rover. (more…)
McLaren like to design their cars with a lot power, speed and stand-out features. And that’s why we love them.

Audi has become quite renowned for sneaky previews of their latest models. Just as they did with the ads for the S1, Audi has done it again by teasing us with sketches of the highly anticipated Q4 concept.
Audi’s Q4 is a concept SUV tat will combine both fuel and electrical motors. The company has labeled the all new Q4 as a ‘plug-in hybrid crossover’.
Luckily for us, the sketches won’t be the nay thing we will be able to see about the car for a long time. The Q4 will make it’s official debut at the Beijing Auto Show next week. So while it’s all good and well to look at the sketches, we only have a week to go to see the official, real-life model. (more…)
The Goodwood Saywell International Charity Track day is an annual event that brings together some of the world’s met famous and celebrated super cars, puts them all on a track, and make some money for charity. So you can imagine that it is, without a doubt, any petrol head’s dream event.
This year, the parade took place on March 22nd. And, just as it has done in previous years, the parade definitely did not disappoint!
The event is almost like a fun run or marathon for charity - except, instead of superstar athletes taking part, its superstar super cars that take to the track. (more…)
You may or may not have seen this video sometime this week. But whether you have or haven’t, there’s no harm in seeing it again…and again… and again. Because this video is pure gold.
On Monday, a South African YouTube user uploaded a video of himself following a man who is busy test driving the Porsche 911 GT-3. While the first half of the video simply shows the Porsche driving smoothly, the second half is way more exciting and will definitely ensure many ‘laugh out loud’ moments. (more…)
