If you read our review of the Rover 75 1.8T. you will know that we are quite impressed by Rover’s ability to compete with the much larger companies in the mid-range executive saloon market. However, the idea of slapping a body kit and an MG badge on it and trying to flog it as an enthusiast’s car had even the least cynical journalists raising their eyebrows and making yeah right noises.

I am glad to report that the cynics have been answered. For starters, the MG ZT’s looks alone put it into a different league to the elegant ...

The First World Land Speed Record Unique Cars and Parts …

Jeantaud Count Gaston de Chasseloup-Laubat holds a unique place in motoring’s history because he was the first man to set up a World Land Speed Record.

The first recorded motoring competition was in 1894 from Paris to Rouen in which all ...
