Go Anywhere in Supreme Comfort - 25th May, 2017

It’s big and tough, will go places most cars can’t and it’ll fit the whole family. But this 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado VX Limited has a softer side, too. The VX Limited is also built for comfort so you and your family will hardly know you’ve left home. A new one will cost you $100k but Turners North Shore has this one and it’s on sale at the moment.

Diddy Ducati - 22nd May, 2017

The Ducati name conjures up images of big superbikes with an incredible sound and speed to match. But there was an unusual addition to the range that is rarely seen and it’s a sort of entry level Ducati. Could the rare SS Junior 400 become a collectible Italian bike or is it just too odd and too small to care about? Remember, it’s often the overlooked ones that go on to become desirable collectors’ items, and Turners has one. Read on...

Winter Glamping Project - 15th May, 2017

Classic caravans are super popular right now, much like the housing market but with wheels. This 1962 Cresta Craft needs work, but, like an old Villa in Ponsonby, it’ll be worth it.

Wolf in Dad’s Tracksuit - 26th April, 2017

It may look like the equivalent of dad’s gym tracksuit with shoulder pads fitted but this mighty Audi RS4 Avant is a bit like Clark Kent – one minute it’s a sedate family wagon, the next it’s a supercar. And it doesn’t need a phone box for the transformation.

Poodle in Sheep’s Clothing - 18th April, 2017

Describing the Peugeot 206 GTI as a wolf in sheep’s clothing would be a bit of a stretch but the little French city car packs a decent punch in GTI guise. The standard 1.4l version, that is most commonly seen here, squeezes out 75hp while the outwardly similar GTI knocks out 138 horses. It’s more poodle than wolf but a feisty poodle none the less.
