Morgan, Lotus and Caterham – The British Connection

Photography by Bruce Holder The lead shot for this feature wasn’t easy to get. A close-knit tracking shot is only ever millimetres away from looking like a Hollywood car crash, so you have to have your wits about you. On this occasion, that was somewhat difficult.

Bristol Cars is officially past tense, and that’s sad. While the cars may have been something of an acquired taste in some cases, the fact remains that Bristol took a huge amount of pride in what it did. The cars were, and still are, exquisite in terms of drive and build and because of that, […]

This is what it’s like to drive Morgan’s AR Plus 4…

Photos by Bruce Holder When you think of a Morgan it’s perfectly acceptable for the mind’s eye to draw up the image of gentle drives in the countryside, gingham blankets and picnics in the sun.

DB4 Zagato – Back to the Future…

This handsome machine is not an Aston Martin DB4 Zagato from the 1960s. It is in fact an Aston Martin DB4 Zagato from today, here, 2019. And that’s pretty special. The car is part of Aston Martin’s impressive Continuation programme, which sees the firm bring back cars from the past. So far there has been […]
