TEST DRIVE: 2016 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF R

/
The long-lived Volkswagen Golf dates back to 1974 and is possibly the most imitated small car in history with countless automakers coming up with versions of their own. It’s hard to believe today that it was VW that virtually created the small hatchback configuration we’re so familiar nowadays.

TEST DRIVE: 2016 BMW M6 COUPE

/
There have been some mighty impressive BMWs over the years and I’ve been lucky to drive most of them, but none of them quite matched up to the M6 I drove recently. It has everything a serious BMW should have - stunning looks, superlative build quality and awesome performance.

COLLECTOR CLASSICS: CRATE EXPECTATIONS

/
The original shipping method of vehicles has a fascinating history. Believe it or not, that is how cars were once shipped from overseas – and in fact, the combination of wooden shipping crates and automobiles date back to at least 1908.

Latest Pictures

The 2016 edition of the Vancouver Auto Show was in my opinion one of the best in recent years. A good selection of sports and supercars along with the daily drivers. In addition some very interesting concepts and new models were on the floor that will be coming to North America soon. Fancy an Alfa Romeo Guilia Quadrifoglio or a Ford Focus RS?
