LAMBORGHINI SUPERVELOCE
 

 

MONDIAL DE L’AUTOMOBILE - Paris
 

 

ANDY GREEN - PUSHING THE LIMITS
 

The Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce is Lamborghini’s wildest super sports car. This Raging Bull is the meanest and most hardcore Raging Bull to date. During the early 60s, Ferruccio Lamborghini was an unknown Ferrari-driving Italian industrialist. He was deeply unhappy with the quality of his <More>

 

 

If cities have sexes, then New York is metro-sexual, London is a man, but Paris is a woman. And a beautiful one at that! Ooh-la-la, Paris. This is a city of timeless familiarity for visitors to this capital, which is designed for intimacy with its patchwork of quartiers and the sense of community, alongside the iconic <More>

 

 

For most people, taking a Bentley Mulsanne up to a speed of 320 KM/H would be a magnificent experience and after this encounter any regular car would seem sluggish and boring. For British Royal Air Force fighter pilot, Wing Commander Andy Green (OBE MA RAF) 1600 KM/H would not be that <More>

LAMBORGHINI HURACAN
 

 

LAPPING IT UP
 

 

STEPHAN WINKELMANN
 

The Huracan LP 610-4 was officially launched in Geneva during March 2014 and early indications are that this futuristic supercar will be an instant sensation and success. Word has it that over 1500 orders have already been placed for this attention-seeking Italian supercar, following more than 130 exclusive <More>

 

 

After a sensational eight months of intense competition with his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton stormed away to win his second world title with the victory at the fi nal race of the 2014 season in Abu Dhabi. It’s January 2014, just before the start of the Formula One Grand Prix <More>

 

 

Le Kap magazine asked Stephan Winkelmann, the President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., about the things that inspire him. As one would imagine, super sports cars, and in particular ‘Lamborghini’ tops the list. Although Stephan is very enigmatic about who designs his clothes, there is no <More>

MEET THE NEW MERCEDES AMG GT
 

 

BENTLEY GT SPEED
 

 

IT’S A BWW ...
 

The Porsche 911 and Jaguar F-Type have a brand new rival in the shape of the sports car developed by Mercedes-AMG. I met Tobias Moers, the newly appointed head of Mercedes-AMG at the launch of the S63 fl agship limousine in Austria and one of my questions was whether having worked with <More>

 

 

Not only is the new Continental GT Speed the pinnacle of British luxury motoring, but it is also a state-of-the-art high-end supercar. As the fastest production Bentley to date with a top speed in excess of 330 km/h the Continental GT Speed has put paid to the notion that one needs to own both <More>

 

 

Oil is not getting any cheaper. And while the price may fl uctuate in the short term, historically all the projections point to a continual rise of prices at the pumps. For this reason, the recent Cape Town launch of the ‘BMW i’ brand in South Africa is a gutsy, but breakthrough move for BMW, especially <More>

MEET THE NEW MERCEDES AMG GT
 

 

THE CONCORSO D’ ELEGANZA
 

 

THE DESIGNERS ...
 

The fi rst time I clapped eyes on ‘Schumi’ – as he’s affectionately known to his legion of fans, was at the 1988 Brands Hatch Formula Ford Festival, a few miles from my hometown in the South East of Britain. However, his performance on that day did not foretell the greatness that was to come, as he crashed <More>

 

 

The Concorso d’ Eleganza is perhaps the most signifi cant gathering of all automotive collections globally, celebrating the mystique of historic cars. The 2015 event was amongst the most memorable I have been to. Every year – on the banks of Lake Como at one the world’s leading hotels <More>

 

 

Richard Webb talks to some the world’s most infl uential car designers to fi nd out what drives them and what they have learnt along the way. I believe we are what we see and that there is inspiration around us all the time – in the arts, fashion, architecture and in nature itself. I’ve spoken to <More>
