According to a press release, Bentley Motors UK has confirmed that it will build the world’s fastest and most luxurious SUV - the first off-road vehicle in the marque’s history.

This was announced at the launch at its Crewe HQs, of three new Bentley models, namely, the Flying Spur sedan, the Continental 4.0 litre GT V8 S and the 6.0 litre Continental GT Speed Convertible. The later is considered the world’s fastest four-seat production convertible.

The production of the new model will create new 1,000 jobs at Bentley and its suppliers.

The company recorded strong sales increases through the first three quarters of 2013 (delivering a total of 6,516 cars against 5,969 in 2012) and opening of 23 international dealerships in locations from Bucharest, Lyon and Minsk through to Hanoi (Vietnam) and the famous Silk Road city of Urumqi.

Most people thinking of selling their car are increasingly going on to the net to do so. The most popular online car selling site has got to be Auto trader here in the UK. I sold my last car on eBay - another site which is quite popular with a lot of private car sellers as well. However, if you live in the north of England, you may want to check out The car buying service. They are in nine locations, namely, Ashton-under-Lyne, Cheadle, Liverpool, Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Sheffield and Doncaster.

The company buys all types of car models and makes and is the online car buyer approved by RAC. You can value your car online in just four steps. First of all out your car registration number and then hit the 'Value my car' button.

You then provide more information about the car and your contact details after which you get the value of the car. If you feel that the price is right, you can then book an appointment. The great thing about this company is that the price quoted is the price you have to pay. There are no hidden "admin charges" that gets added to your bill afterwards.

Just check out their new TV advert:

The all-aluminium F-TYPE Coupé is available in three versions: F-TYPE R, F-TYPE S and the F-TYPE. All engines drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed 'Quickshift' transmission with full manual sequential control via steering wheel-mounted paddles or the central SportShift lever.

The F-TYPE R delivers enhanced agility and handling via Jaguar’s second-generation Electronic Active Differential, Jaguar’s new Torque Vectoring by braking system and a Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) braking system.

VW has had a bit of problem selling the Beetle to male customers and despite launching a New Beetle specifically targeted at guys, was not particularly successful.

This may change the perception of the Beetle as a "cute" car:

On closer inspection, they are not the newer versions of the Beetle but rather modified versions of the popular model.

Sebastian Loeb and Team Citroën unveiled the new C Elysée car and preview WTCC season at the Frankfurt Motor show 2013.

The Citroën C-Elysée WTCC is the very first vehicle to be designed in accordance with the new FIA regulations for the category, will be driven in the the World Touring Car Championship in 2014 by Sébastien Loeb.

The model is a C-segment saloon aimed principally at high-growth, international markets such as those in Latin America, the Mediterranean region, China and Russia.

According to Citroën, it is 30% ahead of its initial sales target, with 30,000 orders placed.

The car features 18-inch wheels, an integrated aerodynamic splitter, and widened front and rear wings.

The Citroën C-Elysée WTCC is powered by the same 1.6-litre direct injection turbocharged engine as the DS3 WRC. With a wider booster flange, power output is now close to 380bhp. The car comes with a front-wheel drive transmission, controlled by a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Production of the iconic London Taxis - the new TX4 model, has resumed at the London Taxi Company factory at Hollyhead road in Coventry, six months after the firm was rescued by the Geely Group. Geely Group Chairman Li Shufu and Business Secretary Vince Cable were present to officially start production.

The Chinese owners bought the company for £11.4 million in February this year. With a £150m five-year investment plan, and 65 new jobs in Coventry and new sales staff in London, the company is hoping for a brighter future. - The company has a total workforce of around 170 and aims to produce 10 cars a day.

The BMW i8 plug-in hybrid is the perfect dream car for me - an eco friendly high-performance sports car. It features a passenger cell made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and BMW eDrive technology that enables it to be driven on electric power alone.

Here are some pics from Frankfurt:

Dr. Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer of Jaguar Land Rover today announced the major investment approaching £1.5 billion at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This will also include the creation of 1,700 new jobs at their Advanced Manufacturing Facility in Solihull, UK. This brings the total number of UK manufacturing jobs announced by Jaguar Land Rover over the last three years to almost 11,000. The car maker owned by Tata plans to deliver an enhanced range of models for both the Jaguar and Land Rover brands in new segments and markets.

The first new model to utilise the new technically-advanced aluminium vehicle architecture will be an all-new mid-sized sports sedan from Jaguar which is expected to be launched in 201. This vehicle will feature the first engine to be built at Jaguar Land Rover’s new £500m Engine Manufacturing Centre. The plant will build the new family of high-output, fuel efficient petrol and diesel engines for Jaguar Land Rover.

Jaguar's first ever sports crossover concept vehicle - the C-X17, has been revealed at Frankfurt 2013.

The C-X17 is a design study to introduce Jaguar's all-new advanced aluminium architecture. Jaguar hopes that this modular, scalable architecture will allow them to grow its product portfolio, and target high-growth areas of the premium market, beginning with a new mid-sized C/D segment sedan in 2015.

The C-X17 concept combines the character and driving experience of a sports car with increased presence and flexibility.

Across the UK homeowners are protecting their cars with outside shelters to shield against the unreliable elements and add a stylish extra to their home’s appearance. 123v is a reputable and industry leading supplier-installer of carports and canopies. Their carports are designed and manufactured in-house by an expert team adept at customising domestic and commercial carports and canopies to your taste.

Want an affordable outdoor shelter for your car? Take a look at these three major reasons why you should consider a domestic carport for your home:

Weather Protection
Ensure your car is kept clean and shielded from the impact of volatile weather conditions. 123v supply carports that offer UV protection, which prevents bodywork deterioration, and sturdy covered parking to control the effect of extreme weather. Over the winter period do you grow tired of heavy snow blocking up tyres and freezing conditions causing an ice blanket over your car? Invest in a robust carport.

Create Storage Space
123v carports and canopies also provide shaded and sheltered areas for social events. Host an outdoor party or a summertime barbecue under cover. Domestic storage is something we all look for, so pack away your outdoor furniture, bicycles and anything else; a carport provides weatherproof protection for anything you wish to keep… not just your car.

Save Money
A carport is a cost effective (and cheaper) alternative to a household garage. Not only that, but it will add to the value of your property. As a practical and budget-friendly shelter to provide covered parking, a 123v carport is available to install across the UK. Get ready to load and unload your car under cover from the rain!
123v supply a variety of car shelter sizes and styles, there is a range of carport structures from which to choose. Individual structures include cantilever, traditional and freestanding carports, and the installation process normally takes just a few hours. 123v will even assist with your planning permission applications and, on completion, each purchase includes a ten year warranty, which is a guarantee of high-class service and product quality.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Iconic DB4GT Zagato, Aston Martin unveiled the V12 Zagato at the 2011 Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance. Due to overwhelming response to the concepts, they decided to put into production a limited run of the V12 Zagato road-cars.

About the car:

This rear wheel drive sports coupe has a front mid-mounted V12 engine mated with a 6 speed manual transmission. It takes the car from 0-100 KM/H (0-62 MPH) in just 4.2 secs.

Check out what the postman dropped off yesterday: It's a bright red Royal Mail tool box, personally engraved with my name.

I am delighted to be invited to take part in the Royal Mail British Auto Legends stamp campaign - celebrating 10 of the most famous British classic marques:




Inside was a first day cover with letter, the new British Auto Legends stamp collection, a USB stick shaped like a key and containing all the information about the collection including the cars, a ticket for the Cheshire classic, vintage and sportscar show on thew 17-18 of August (which I was unable to attend) and finally, a small stainless steel forged spanner.


The Thoroughbreds
  1. Jaguar E-Type
  2. Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow
  3. Aston Martin DB5
  4. MG MGB
  5. Morgan Plus 8
  6. Lotus Esprit
The Workhorses
  1. Morris Minor Van
  2. Austin FX4
  3. Fords Anglie 105E
  4. Land Rover Defender T10
The workhorses received a bit of flak from the Top Gear team, especially the Ford Anglia 105E, which was the favourite of the British police in the 1960s.

My favourite has to be the Aston Martin DB5, which became famous after appearing in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger. This car was launched in 1963 and had a 4-litre (3995cc) engine with 242bhp (5500rpm) and a top speed of 144mph (232kph).

Which one is your favourite classic car?

I have had my car serviced and MOT done recently but the service reminder light still comes on. The workshop did not know how to solve the problem ( I did not go to TMS - the authorised dealers of Volvo in Coventry, this time) and so I turned to my trusted Guru - YouTube. I soon found a video showing how to reset the service light indicator on a Volvo S40. Watch below:

Anyway, according to Britannia Rescue, most drivers do not have a clue what all the lights on their dashboard stand for. I found a great guide on the VW Facebook page with explanations of the lights. They might differ from car to car.

It has been a scorching hot summer here in the UK. Just the other day, it was around 30 degrees C (approx. 86 degrees Fahrenheit ) and when I got into the car, it felt like a sauna. According to the US National Weather Service site, on a sunny day, temperatures inside the car can easily reach the ranges of 180 to over 200°F. Even with the air conditioning blowing at full power, it still took several minutes before it was finally comfortable inside the car. AT times like this, I do envy people who have houses with garages.

I do not have a garage in the front of the house and the car is left exposed to the elements. It is the hot sun now and rain, frost or snow at other times. However, these are not the worst. If you have ever parked under tress, you will understand what I mean. I do not really mind dead tree leaves but I especially hate bird poop. The worst part is that they are not only disgusting, they can actually damage the car paint if not cleaned off as soon as possible, and I am talking from experience.

Anyway, I was thinking how wonderful it would be, to have a covered driveway in front of the house. The more I thought about it, the more I realised that it would be a fantastic idea. By chance I got to know about 123v Plc, a company which is specialised in Carports and Car Canopies. They offer three different types of styles, namely,
1) Cantilever, where the carport or canopy is attached to a wall or any other structure;
2) Traditional, where the carport is attached to a wall and has posts as well. It can have a much larger span than the former.
3) Freestanding, with it's own posts.

I think for our house, a cantilever style canopy would be the most suitable. One reason I prefer this style is that there won't be any obstacles on the driveway.

However, installing these kind of structures is not a DIY job and would require the services of specialised companies. One thing that watching Cowboy Builders on TV has taught me is that you need to hire a reputed and experienced company for these kind of jobs. 123v Plc has been designing, manufacturing and installing all kinds of open sided structures, since 1997. These includes custom-build carports and canopies for homes, schools and offices all over Scotland, Wales and England. What I really found amazing was the fact that they offer a free, no obligation site survey so that each job is tailored to the needs of each individual customer. And once the fitting is complete, the surveyors will return to photograph them.

Check their site for more information.

Have you been rejected by the banks? People require fast loans for a variety of reasons: whether to ease financial constraints and make ends meet, pay for a holiday, or complete some on-going home improvements. Read on to discover straightforward and secure alternatives that could provide you with large sums of cash in your account today.

Logbook Loans

Have you considered a logbook loan to ease your financial pressures? V5 Loans is a company which offers simple alternatives to bank loans for people who have been refused by banks and other lenders. Similar to a payday loan, a logbook loan can provide even larger sums of cash to customers, much more quickly. Simply, it is finance secured against the value of your car or vehicle, whereas a payday loan is unsecured. The value of your car will be assessed promptly as the car is the loan’s security; fees are determined by each vehicle’s age, model type, and general condition.

Instant Fast Cash

With V5 Loans you may be eligible to up to £20,000, depending on the condition of your vehicle, and this figure could be transferred into your account within 24 hours! V5 Loans ensures that a cheque or cash can be handed over within a few hours, since there are no credit checks and your only obligation will be to make timely loan repayments. You might be eligible for same day cash, so long as you own a vehicle and are based in England or Wales.

Bad Credit Rating

V5 Loans can boost your future credit rating, making prospective bank loan applications more likely to be accepted. Keeping up with weekly or monthly repayment plans ensures this provides a boost to your credit file. APR rates are typically higher than most high street lenders, but this is offset by the loan’s flexibility; it represents a secure alternative to unregulated money lenders.

Typically, logbook loans companies will arrange a face-to-face meeting with each customer, following a successful online loan application. This is a standard procedure to discuss the lending scheme and appraise the value of your car, thus deciding on the size of the loan. What’s more, you are often allowed to keep driving your vehicle throughout the duration.

Remember, you may be eligible for an instant cash loan, even with a bad credit history. If you are looking for a quick loan and own a car that is free, or almost free, from finance and have a proven income – whether through wages or welfare benefits – a logbook loan is a quick, reliable, and handy solution.
