Granted, it has been months since my trip to Munich but I still do have a few more things to share, this one though, I’m guessing, isn’t quite for everyone. So, hands up if you’re a doggo pawrent.

What’s sleek, filled with bleeding-edge automotive tech, can’t be bought and just covered 1,202 kilometres on a single charge? If your answer’s not the Benz EQXX, you’re wrong. First unveiled earlier this year, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz reckoned their (already record-breaking) initial 1,007-kilometre test drive could have gone considerably further so just a week ago, […]

I’ll have to admit, there’s going to be bias. Not just because I love everything MIni but also because I have some amazingly fond memories of driving a John Cooper Works Clubman from Frankfurt, Germany, through the Netherlands towards The Hague before we loaded up onto a Ferry to conclude our journey into the UK […]

If you were wondering why I didn’t show any Minis from my previous post, it’s really because of a rather special Clubman I spotted immediately as I walked by. This, everyone, is a Mini Clubman Untold Edition. Launched just a month or two ago as part of a trio of (yet again) special edition Minis […]
