Theory of Evo-lution

Mitsubishi’s theory of evolution was simple; take a standard model Lancer and turn it into a blisteringly fast weapon and keep updating it.

Brains above Beauty

If you live anywhere where parking is tight, traffic is usually slow and petrol is expensive then the Mitsubishi i-Car shouldn’t be overlooked.

Mighty Mouse

For the uninitiated, the Riley Elf is basically a Mini with a slightly bigger boot, more chrome and a bit more “luxury”. But despite the upmarket extras, the Elf is often seen as the poorer cousin to the Mini despite its cute looks and Mini driving appeal. This fine looking example could be the affordable ticket to classic Mini ownership. Read on...
