Big Bang for Your Buck - 12th February, 2018

When you mention Renault to many NZ drivers you, perhaps ironically, get a very Gallic shrug of the shoulders or a dismissive wave of the hands. This is odd because when it comes to hot hatches Renault has got form, seriously good form. So while others are stumping up big dollars for hot Golfs or Focuses the Renault Megane RS250 Cup can be picked up for a snip. Read on...

Smoking Hot Classic - 2nd February, 2018

Most retired fire engines that come up for sale aren’t exactly the most practical vehicles to park in your driveway or on the street outside your house. But this 1976 Toyota FJ45 Smoke Chaser is just about the right size and it may just cause a few grown-up six year olds to spontaneously combust with excitement. Read on...

Basically a Ford in a nice suit, the Mercury lives up to its name by being the size of a small planet.

Electric Dreams - 24th January, 2018

On a drive between Napier and Taupo on the weekend – to watch fossil fuel burning monsters race around the Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park - I couldn’t help but notice not one, but two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations strategically placed along the Napier – Taupo road.

New Vitara for Used Money - 17th January, 2018

Okay, so strictly speaking it’s not new, it’s actually 17 months old, but it’s the current model with just 3200km on the clock. A new one has a RRP of $37990 so with an auction estimate of just $21,500 - $22,500 and the balance of the new car warranty this top of the range Vitara Turbo AllGrip could turn out to be an amazing deal on a really nice bit of kit.

Little Red Corvette? 5th January, 2018

When Prince wrote his hit song about a little red Corvette we can only assume he wasn’t comparing its size to his own stature because the Corvette is a big car and Prince was a brilliant small man. With a 5.7L V8 and an overall length of 4.6 metres the only thing “little” about this red Corvette is the price...read on

Beautiful Car Alert – Alfa Romeo GT - 15th December, 2017

If there’s one thing the Italians are good at - apart from football, food, fashion and organised crime - it’s cars - or more specifically, sexy cars. Sure there are exceptions but their hit rate when it comes to good looking cars is pretty remarkable. The Alfa Romeo GT is gorgeous and for a coupe it’s actually quite practical. And unlike some Alfas from the last 20 years there’s a good chance it won’t break your heart.
