“Concept car” is one of the most dreaded terms among the car fans, however 70 years after the very first 356 Roadster hit the road on June 8, 1948 Porsche has now launched the new 911 Speedster Concept. Martin Green takes a look to see if there’s anything to get excited about.
Quill & Pad’s editor-in-chief, Elizabeth Doerr, and resident gentleman, Martin Green, spontaneously decided to take a small road trip to test out some watches for a day and do a little sightseeing. They chose Cologne, Germany, and took two automobile-themed watches with them: the Chopard Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition and the Nomos Glashütte Autobahn. Join them for this fun cruise down the highway!
Beauty may well be in the eye of the beholder, but Martin Green thinks that even parked the new BMW 8 Series has a fighting stance. You can see the raw power and immediately know this is not an ordinary BMW.
The Mille Miglia has become part of Chopard’s DNA – to such an extent that the event has not only become one of the nominal pillars of the brand’s collection but an icon in its own right. The Chopard Mille Miglia is one of those chronographs that has obtained a prominent position in its market, with an appeal going far beyond being associated with a high-profile event.
Thanks to a recently implemented product strategy for road cars, McLaren has begun making them much more accessible for normal street driving. And the 570s is one of these: a McLaren for non-professional lovers of great cars. Go on a test drive with Elizabeth right here!
While it’s easy to imagine that the new Cullinan is Rolls-Royce’s very first SUV, the brand was already making stupendously luxurious cars capable of driving through incredibly difficult terrain over a hundred years ago. But the new Cullinan is still something quite special.
While you would be forgiven for not noticing, for the very first time in its longstanding career the Mercedes G-Class has been completely redesigned. Martin Green explains how the “brick” has been improved and why it will still appeal to fans of the traditional vehicle.
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!
