BMW M4 CS Review

The BMW M4 CS is exactly what the M4 needs to be. I need to take you on a little journey here. Just a short one, don’t worry. Some years ago, BMW released the M4, which replaced the M3, which itself was replaced by the sedan-only M3. The M4 replaced the V8 M3 Coupe which was a cracker of a car. High revving, naturally-aspirated and if you chose, a bit of luxury. And it looked amazing in the right colour and with the right wheels. There wasn’t a lot wrong…

2018 Lancia Stratos Cars 

The Lancia Stratos is Back. Again.

The Lancia Stratos HF is everyone’s idea of a mad rally car. Well, it’s my idea of a mad rally car, anyway. The Lancia dominated the World Rally Championship in the mid-70s, taking out the 1974, 1975 and 1976 titles. The video above proves why it’s so popular with petrolheads. Hell, this car probably made about a million people petrolheads. Powered by a 2.4-litre Ferrari Dino V6, it was all sound and spectacle, with its wedge-shaped body and mid-engine stance, it looked like it was straight from space. The HF…

Lister Returns To The Road With Lister Thunder

Jaguar F-Type-based Lister Thunder hits the road. Britain really knows how to do sports cars of a particular type. Then another British company takes that sports car and turns it into a total nutter. Lister is just such a company and almost thirty years since the mad 7.0-litre V12 XJS called the Lister Le Mans, they’re back. The new car is a called Thunder. That’s appropriate before they throw a single spanner at the supercharged V8 F-Pace because as we discovered in our SVR review, that engine is possibly the…

Land Rover Defender Works V8 Is Bonkers

Land Rover Defender Works V8 Announced               Land Rover has gone a bit overboard in its 70th Anniversary year, producing the Defender Works V8. As most of you probably already know, the Defender went out of production a couple of years back after many decades in service. Over the years it scored little in the way of creature comforts. Less attention was paid only to the styling, which barely changed. You can imagine the consternation in the Defender project corner every time a new…

Detroit 18: The 2018 Hyundai Veloster N Is Here

Hyundai unveiled the 2018 Hyundai Veloster N at the North American International Motor Show. The 2018 Hyundai Veloster N has broken cover at the Detroit Motor Show and you know what? It looks alright. Building on the (critical) success of the i30 N, the Veloster will also have an N badge slapped on the rear. If it’s half as good as the N appears to be (we’ve not yet driven the i30, but watch this space), the Veloster N will be the complete package. The N features Hyundai’s 2.0-litre turbocharged…

BMW Australia Bought An E34 M5

Okay, yes, that’s a weird headline and it does feel a little like BMW M5 day here at The Redline given this morning’s M5¬†drifting-related news. But I quite liked this story for two reasons. I like BMW M5s I like Heritage Fleets Heritage fleets aren’t anything new. I was lucky enough to visit the Ford Heritage Collection in January 2017 and oh my giddy aunt, I thought I was going to pass out I had so much fun. The Ford fleet is packed full of goodies, right from the Model…
