Just a few years ago there was a lot of uncertainty over whether Jaguar Land Rover would even survive, a sharp contrast to 2012 then in which the company has seen it’s best ever sales. Largely due to it’s expansion into China, Jaguar Land Rover have seen a 29% sales increase from last year with a total of 314,433 vehicles sold. The Range Rover Sport is still the company’s biggest seller with the most recently launched Evoque jumping into second place. The recently facelifted XF remains Jaguar’s best selling model. As previously mentioned, China is where the biggest sales increases…

Just like the original GP of 2006 was, the Mini John Cooper Works GP II is a special edition of the current hatch and is a final goodbye before the third generation Mini is announced. Official power details of the GP II haven’t yet been detailed, but the car has lapped the Nurburgring in eight minutes and twenty three seconds, some nineteen seconds faster than the previous GP. Therefore we can expect more power from the 1.6 litre turbocharged engine, and a 0-62mph time of around six seconds plus. Styling wise, the GP II takes inspiration from the original. Red…

Up until recently, Vauxhall’s upcoming rival to the Fiat 500 and the Mini was known as the Junior, however, Vauxhall have now confirmed that the new stylish city car is actually going to be named Adam! The car has been snapped countless of times wearing heavy camouflage and it’s likely that we won’t see the finished product until Vauxhall debut it at the Paris Motor Show in September. We’re surprised that Vauxhall haven’t named it the custom, for that is going to be the main selling point of the Adam. Vauxhall say that there are going to be around 10,000…

Sales over at Audi increased by 14.4% to 125,000 last month, compared to BMW who saw a smaller increase of 7.4% to see sales of 121,476. Audi have been gaining on their rivals for a couple of years now and it seems like there is no stopping them.

BMW is top with 478,030 sales, Audi is second place with 471,300 whilst Mercedes falls behind even more with sales of 418,426. With the new A3, the updated R8 and…

On Christmas day in ‘98, as Britney’s neon pedal pushers (you know you bought a pair!) shone brightly on my wall, I was not the only ‘90s kid to get my paws on a really useful copy of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, Cats – on video! The musical score was born when Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber set TS Eliot’s poetry collection, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, to a musical score. The decision of the Really Useful Group, the theatre and media company founded by Sir Lloyd Webber himself, to release the musical on video in 1998 was not a…
