The previous Focus RS is now making a lot more sense to buy and hold onto over the long-term as a potential investment. When that car came out the general perception was that it was a once off crazy experiment, these arrived in fewer numbers which meant that they are more limited in SA and again we saw prices that were inconceivable for any Ford model offered in SA across all the segments really.
This blog post is about the Smart Forfour (the 1st generation, aka Gen 1) and no, I’m not gonna sign it off ‘more like the Dumb Forfour. Amirite?” My ten minutes of internet research has indicated that they are actually pretty good cars.
Saying a Ferrari, let alone its flagship hypercar is the cheapest car ever seems like a ridiculous notion and even though it’s on the internet, it simply can’t be true. Well it is, the 500 or so buyers who were afforded the opportunity to buy a LaFerrari essentially paid zero Dollars for it.
Oh no, sir, there are way more than a few other specs. To be precise, there are currently 14 variations of the 911 excluding the GT3, GT3 RS and 911 R. Yes you would be correct, there are 17 variations of the 911.
Already during my brief tenure at Feathered Throttle I’ve made reference to my dislike for BMW M cars, or rather my absolute belief that the AMG’S sh*t all over them.
The design of the rims is just not cool and doesn’t match the aesthetic of the brand. They are Lenasia after-market-chic, that’s a thing right?
Driving to work yesterday I saw a Golf 6 GTI cabriolet. Now that’s a rare sighting! Having never read about or watched a review on it, I wouldn’t be able to say if it’s any good but the market certainly hasn’t embraced it. I stand to be corrected, but I don’t think there are any plans to build a Golf 7 cabriolet even.
Disclaimer: I have never been blown away by limited edition Lambo’s. The underpinnings are technically wonderful but to me, the styling is just garish. I just don’t get it – and whilst Lambo’s are meant to be preposterous and silly, these models tend to be preposterous and stupid.
The medium sized, executive saloon, conclusively built to fill the loomingly hollow between the ferocious F-Type (sports car) and luscious flagship XJ (luxury sedan). The same executive saloon that needs to pick a fight with the class leading 3-series and the current trend-busting C-Class.
In 2003, BMW revealed its E46 M3, Mercedes rumbled with the C32 AMG and Audi unleashed its mountain passing, tar ripping four wheel drive RS4. Again, each very unique and absolutely brilliant, but as Audi and Mercedes went to bed thinking that they had done their absolute best to compete, but little did they know that BMW revealed had something special up their sleeves.
