Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T 2019

Ferrari’s GTC4 Lusso replaced the FF a couple of years ago. In a series of very amusing events, it has taken me this long to get a hold of one. I specifically wanted the twin-turbo rear-wheel drive Lusso T because I suspected it would be brilliant. The Ferrari FF was a special kind of Ferrari. Twelve screaming cylinders, all-wheel drive, a cabin you can fit four people in and, for some reason that will never make sense to me, a boot that fits golf clubs. Mostly because I can’t imagine…

McLaren 720S 2019 Review: Mild and Wild

It’s no secret that I don’t mind Woking’s machines, particularly the McLaren 720S . I’ve driven (almost) everything but the Ultimate Series cars and being stuck here in the back-end of nowhere in Australia makes that difficult. That’s okay – you can’t have everything.

2019 Audi R8 Announced – Still A V10

After four years on sale, the second-generation Audi supercar is due for a facelift. The 2019 Audi R8 has more power, torque and a new face. 2019 Audi R8 Like the new face? I do. While I really, really like the R8, it is missing a little bit of drama in the looks. I have rationalised that away on occasions – some of us don’t want to shout about it. But I’m odd that way. The new face brings some supercar bravado to the table. A new bumper and grille…
