Audi ImmeRSion – Audi RS Track Experience

Audi NZ RS track experience

According to Audi NZ it’s no accident that down here in our little slice of blue planet paradise, RS model sales are the best in the world – it’s all down to their 360-degree marketing (that and great cars of course).

Nifty fifty – Mercedes-Benz A250 Review

Mercedes-Benz A250 Review New Zealand

Mercedes-Benz A250 Review New Zealand When I was younger (yes I can still remember that far back), fifty seemed to be an ancient age, ‘old and past it’ if I can recall. However, as my half-century came (and then went), terminologies such as ‘you’re only as old as you feel’ or ‘age is a state […]

Ferrari 488 Challenge – it’s big, really BIG.

Ferrari 488 Challenge at Hampton Downs New Zealand punches above its weight in so many sports, Boxing, Rugby (of course), Cricket, Netball, Sailing and Motorsport to name but a few.

Honda Civic Type-R – True XTC

It has be said (rather cruelly), that the best thing to come out of Swindon is the M4 (motorway). However, as I in fact hail from said city, (or is that sad city – I jest), this should be proof enough that this is not true. On top of this, we have the ‘Magic Roundabout’ […]

BMW M760Li Review – Twelve Gauge, not a bore.

BMW M760Li Review New Zealand In firearms terms, Gauge is a fraction measurement. It originated way back when you would buy lead by the ‘pound’ to make your own ammo, therefore ‘gauge’ tells you how many rounds (bullets) you can make from one pound of lead.
