Mazda3 GT Sport Review

It thinks it’s a hot hatch, and it’s warm enough for most!

Sleek styling, curvy sides, swooping roofline and the sweet way it plays with the light makes the Mazda3 one of the best-looking hatchbacks around. Such is the appeal of this all-rounder, that if the aesthetics don’t get you, the driving dynamics might just do the trick.

2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge Edition Review

Are you bad enough for Black Badge?

Are you filthy rich and villainous? Then read on. Otherwise, pfft, just go look at the ‘regular’ Ghost. You’re not quite elite enough to contemplate this lady in black.   

About that though, the all-new second generation Rolls-Royce Ghost was launched last year, and in a major departure, unlike its predecessor, was based not on the BMW 7-Series, but instead shared its platform with in-house siblings, the flagship Phantom and the Cullinan luxury SUV. Admittedly, like those other Rolls-Royce motor cars, its power unit is from BMW (which owns Rolls-Royce), though it’s no less than a V12 engine with a 6.75-litre cubic capacity.

Range Rover Velar P400e PHEV Review

The Range Rover Velar is the best looking of the current range of luxury roving SUVs. The baby Evoque even adopted most of the Velar’s styling cues in its update a couple of years ago, but the Velar still looks fresh and is arguably more futuristic and sleeker than its bigger brothers, though remains as elegant as its elevated siblings.

McLaren 620R Review

About as hardcore as a road car can get, superb at the right place and time

If you’ve only just managed to get your head around McLaren’s unique model range structure, go full face-palm now, because the arrival of recent new offerings from the supercar maker signal that’s all about to change. So here then is the McLaren 620R which the company says concludes its Sports Series lineup which featured the 570, 600 and from which was also spun a pure race car in the form of the 570S GT4.

50 Years of the Lamborghini Countach [My First Supercar]

Reminiscing about my first Lamborghini Countach experience on 50th anniversary of the iconic supercar

In celebration of the 50 years anniversary of the debut of the Lamborghini Countach on this planet, I recount my first supercar experience from when I reviewed this 1983 Lamborghini LP5000S back in 1990 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as a fledgling car journalist.

BMW 330e Plug-In electric hybrid review

Check out my full review of the hybrid 3 Series – does it still feel like a 3 Series?

It’s the superclean BMW 3 Series that runs about half the time on electric power and claims a maximum of 200mpg! It’s an M-Sport version, but does it still feel, drive and behave like a 3 Series should? Watch my full review. Follow #BCGBMW #BCGBMW330e & #BrownCarGuy (on all all social media).

Latest Brown Car Guy Update 18032020 #BCGDaily

Research by IAM Roadsmart presents some alarming revelations about the dangers of using in-car infotainment systems – apparently your reaction times are significantly slower than someone who had used cannabis and five times worse than someone driving at the legal limit of alcohol consumption. Interestingly this relates a little to my recent article on DriveTribe
