Cars and watches, watches and cars: they do seem to go together! Scratch almost any watch lover and you’re going to find a car lover just under the surface. GaryG talks with his pal “Enzo” in this interesting discussion about the similarities and dissimilarities of car and watch collecting.
Some car brands are so quintessentially English that they can only be developed in the United Kingdom. TVR is a prime example of this, however despite more than its share of dark times, the company is on a roll again, having recently launched a new Griffith – and a new partner for World Endurance Racing in Rebellion.
These are the five prettiest cars from the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in my opinion (practicality be gone): Koenigsegg Regera, Hennessey Venom 5, McLaren Senna GTR Concept, Pagani Huayra Roadster, and Pininfarina H2 Speed. As a bonus, one of them was introduced at the same time as a new Richard Mille watch decorated in McLaren orange!
The Lamborghini Urus going into production is very similar to that of the prototypes that Lamborghini has been showing us for the past couple of years. And that’s a good thing because it is a beautiful car, containing a lot of Lamborghini DNA. And there are a few elements here worth going into closer detail over.
There’s no replacement for displacement: that’s the general mantra of American muscle car aficionados. However, the Genovation GXE is really a C6 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport with its 6.2-liter V8 replaced by two electric engines, providing the car with about 800 horsepower!
Founded in 1991, until now Hennessey has made a name for itself by extracting huge amounts of horsepower (chiefly) out of American sports cars and SUVs while keeping them drivable and dependable.

There wasn’t even a concept Audi A7 a few years ago, yet now it is high on everyone’s wish list. This is also unlikely to change, as the release of the 2019 model year pulls the A7 even further into the future. Martin Green examines why.
As Joshua has covered the world of watches, another of his passions has been reignited: automobiles. Watches and cars go together, so it is no surprise that he has a strong interest in fast things with powerful motors. This is the story of how Joshua ended up with both a 1991 Honda Beat and a 1991 Seiko 7002 Diver. And he is still smiling!
With its Matrix LED headlights and prominent folds in the hood, the front of the 2018 Continental GT looks more organic, effectively shifting Bentley’s traditional styling a little bit closer to the future. But it’s what’s under the hood that may want to make you forgo your Learjet for a long ride in the luxurious wood-infused cabin.
Land Rover has discovered what it calls a “white-space” opportunity between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport: enter the Range Rover Velar, a true off-road vehicle that is still beautiful enough to stand up to comparison to every other noble SUV.
