Driven | Volvo S60 Polestar

I was not blown away by the Volvo V40 I drove a while back but when I managed to get my hands on the hotted up Polestar version of the S60 I could not wait to see what the Swedish racing division could do. Let's start with the cosmetics. That Rebel Blue paintjob has to be one of the most striking colours on a car out there today and although it…

Driven | BMW 340i

Last week I had the top-of-the-range 3-Series Bimmer to play with but before we get into how it went, let me explain why BMW have changed it from the 335i to the 340i. Put simply, I have no idea! It does not have an increased engine size of 4.0-litres, but it does have a new 3.0 litre unit. BMW are just trying to confuse everyone and they were…

Driven | 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4

Some of you will know that I have already had the chance to drive the V10 baby bull previously at the South African launch but when the keys are handed to you a year later it still feels like one of the best days of your life. When I went on the launch, we took the new arrivals on long empty lengths of road in Clarens and this really allowed us…

Driven: Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale

We all know how Maserati's GranTurismo symphonic V8 sounds but I recently had the chance to experience the hardcore MC Stradale and I have completely fallen in love. Simply put, this car would be in my top 10 dream garage without a doubt and I will briefly explain why below. The first thing you notice when you see the car is the aggressive…

Driven: 2015 Maserati Ghibli S

Last week I had the chance to test out the new Maserati arrival and although its the 'entry-level' model, this is an epic car to drive. Looks wise I think its on the money. It's smaller proportions (compared to Quattroporte) makes it easier on the eye and much easier to drive but I have to admit that it is slightly less exciting. This would make…

Driven: Jaguar XE S

Having only driven the Jaguar F-Type Convertible, I was extremely keen to jump into their latest and creation and see what the smallest, lightest and stiffest Jaguar sedan ever made could do. The team from Jaguar South Africa invited me to the launch in Cape Town and although you are here to read about the car, I can safely say that it was one…

Driven: Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 4MATIC

When I was told I would be getting the little Mercedes GLA on test, I was a bit hesitant as to how I would like it but after having the car for a few days, I can safely say that it is extremely good. Not many people know where this car fits into the market as it is a compact cross-over / SUV and to be honest, before I drove it I also did not…
