Audi A8 L. New entry. Management Fleet

As one Audi exits the crankandpiston.com long term clubhouse, another heads through the revolving doors in the opposite direction. Our latest Ingolstadt incumbent however is quite different. Gone is the off-road finesse of the Q5, replaced with nutmeg brown Valcona leather, a panoramic sunroof, and a bangin' Bose… » 1/21/15 2:07am 1/21/15 2:07am

Morgan 3 Wheeler. DRIVEN. Tally ho!




I hesitate slightly to write this, but my drive in the Morgan 3 Wheeler might just be the most fun I've ever had in a road legal car. I hesitate because this is a hell of a claim. But then everything – and I really do mean EVERYTHING – about the Morgan 3 Wheeler is an adventure.

McLaren 650S GT3. Inside the machine

As is often the case when it releases a new model, McLaren already had an enormous benchmark in place when it launched the brand new 650S GT3 at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. Its predecessor, the 12C GT3, in just three full seasons of competing globally had taken three GT championships, 51 race victories… » 12/17/14 3:25am 12/17/14 3:25am

Ferrari 458 Speciale. DRIVEN. Precious memories

It's been quite a while since I've sworn this much during a test drive. Almost a year in fact. But this is not swearing with vitriolic rage at an incomprehensible SatNav, Bluetooth connection or adaptive cruise control. It's swearing aimed internally. I'm not driving this Ferrari 458 Speciale as I should be. » 11/08/14 1:36pm 11/08/14 1:36pm

Volkswagen Golf R vs BMW M135i vs Mercedes A 45 AMG

Two generations of the R32 were all it took to cement the latterly named Golf R's legendary reputation in the early 2000s. Devoid of ghastly bodykits, racing stripes and hilariously oversized aftermarket alloys, the R took what made the Golf one of the best handling hatchbacks on the market, tweaked the power,… » 10/08/14 12:08am 10/08/14 12:08am
