Audi A1 16 Tdi Sport

DIESEL VERSION OF AUDI'S NEW MINI RIVAL TOP-NOTCH FIT AND FINISH UNDERWHELMING DRIVING EXPERIENCE doubt you've been able to prevent your eyes flicking across to the verdict already. So why has this A1 earned so few of those bright red stars The trouble is that once you've lapped up the quality and that will take a little while because there's a lot to admire there's really not much else to get the juices flowing. The A1 itself boasts no radical construction or other interesting technical...

Porsche 911 Gts At El Mirage

Porsche 911 Gts Mirage

Some up and it crumbles to dust not much coarser than talcum power. Once you get below the loose crust, though, the bed is rock hard a perfect, non-corrosive surface on which to drive as fast as your car will carry you When the SCTA holds speed trials here, the runs are conducted on a 1.3-mile course marked by cones across the lakebed. This makes it much shorter than the more famous Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, but it doesn't stop racers hitting big speeds. The outright record for El Mirage...

Bvo Rating

Anti-lag BANG as you change gear and you're there. I'm getting carried away again, I know, but it's that sort of car - it makes you dream of being Rijrhl or if you're a girl Mouton. And if you don't believe me, just pop the satnav into Race mode, because it will begin reading you pace notes for the road ahead. That's right, you can have your very own electronic co-driver. Give it time and you'll probably even be able to download a voice file to make it sound like Phil Mills or Nicky Grist....

Audi A2

I Compact but spacious, with clever packaging, an aluminium body and spaceframe chasis, and a titchy but torquey three-cylinder diesel, it couldn't be more relevant Yet production stopped five years ago Instead, Audi will now sell you an A1 a shrunken-down A3 that's thoroughly competent but distinctly charisma-free. The A1 is great at being a small Audi, then, but the A2 is great at being a small car full stop. Its aluminium construction sees it weigh just 990kg,...

Peugeot 306 Rallye

Throttle and or gently nudging the steering. I'm so glad I didn't give the chassis too much grip by fitting modern tyres. Does it matter that, even on its everyday Dunlops, our Skoda Yeti is far faster through any given corner Not for a split second. In the Rallye things happen at more manageable, sociable speeds, and corners last longer, so you can do more on the way through them. And let's face it. corners are why I bought this car in the first place. Now it has round wheels all round, the...

Richard Meaden Reports From The Launch Of Gran Turismo 5 In Madrid And Takes The Game For A Test Drive

After more than L five ears of b ood, sweat and tears, Kazunori Yamauchi's latest opus, Gran Turismo 5, has finally made it to launch. It's a mark of the pent-up hunger for this game that GTs servers - built to cope with 500,000 simultaneous players - are on the verge of meltdown on the day of the launch due to the sheer weight of numbers playing the game online. The system's capacity is rapidly doubled. As you'd expect, GT5 features a myriad of circuits, many of them new, plus no...

Bugatti Ebiio 1991

There was something of a rush to create the first carbonfibre-chassis'd supercar. The honour went not to the Ferrari F50 1995 , nor the McLaren F1 1992 . but the Bugatti EBIIO. French aerospace company Aerospatiale made the chassis. So familiar is the Elise now that it's hard to remember just how radical it was back in I996. It wasn't just the extruded aluminium tub, but the fact that it was glued together rather than bolted, reducing weight and increasing strength.
