    Matthew Bell on 6th January 2020

    A 60 Series Toyota Starlet might be the last ride that you’d expect a key employee of a US muscle car giant to be seen in, but that’s exactly what Alfred Mortel is piloting around the mean streets of Sin…

    RETRO CARS – MODIFIED NISSAN 240SX WIDEBODY

    Matthew Bell on 23rd December 2019

    On paper, the idea of an up and coming modern classic from Nissan with a retro muscle car makeover may sound a little strange… but that’s nothing when you see what’s going on under the bonnet of this Nissan 240SX!…

    Matthew Bell on 20th December 2019

    With 610bhp from its twin-turbo N54, this E46 is an absolute performance beast, not that you’d ever be able to tell… Over the years we’ve seen so many different E46s that trying to take them all in would be enough…

    PERFORMANCE VW – MODIFIED VW RABBIT

    Matthew Bell on 17th December 2019

    It’s hard to believe that the owner and creator of this diesel-powered Rabbit is also a self-confessed muscle car guy. So how did this custom classic come about? Well, we thought we’d better ask the man himself… “I was as…

    RETRO CARS THROWBACK: MODIFIED K20 MINI

    Matthew Bell on 13th December 2019

    We all know that Minis are more about the driving sensation rather than out and out speed. For around 60 years now, the razor-sharp steering, featherweight body and go kart cornering of the classic Mini has been a hard formula…

    UNDERGROUND RACING TWIN-TURBO GALLARDO

    Matthew Bell on 11th December 2019

    For some, standard Lamborghinis are just not quick enough. Despite the stock looks, the Gallardo Superleggra pictured here was just such a car. However, after the guys at Underground Racing (UGR) had worked on it, things changed. This is now…

    Matthew Bell on 10th December 2019

    The traditional model of kids crammed into litter-strewn Volvo estates has been comprehensively blown out of the water by this E60 M5. Welcome to the cool family ride, Vegas-style…  The BMW M5 has always been a symbol of Jekyll-and-Hyde contortionism,…

    RETRO CARS THROWBACK: MODIFIED FORD CORTINA

    Matthew Bell on 3rd December 2019

    James Wright’s modified Ford Cortina packs a whopping 390bhp cossie engine. This isn’t quite the usual restoration project you expect to see with many a Blue Oval-badged coupe. This one certainly puts the cooooor back into Cortina. Certain cars have…

    Matthew Bell on 29th November 2019

    Finished in dazzling Sakhir orange, clad in carbon fibre and boasting 575bhp, this fabulous F80 M3 is a four-door thrill. It feels, to us at least, that the F8x M3 and M4 have only been around for five minutes, though…
