  • Exploring the Crayfish Trail, roofless

    The day had come and it was time for us to meander up the West Coast to explore something called the “Crayfish Trail”.  I had just a semblance of what to expect and from what I’d heard, this was some sort of long walk along what was once a...
  • WATCH: Honda Civic Type R driven HARD

    Hondas Civic Type R has gained a worldwide cult following.  I would imagine many manufacturers hope and strive for this type of loyalty. Once sat in the Honda press conference for the official launch of Type-R in South Africa, I was taken aback by the stoic passion the Honda...

  • Nissan’s 370Z is still available new, but should it be?

    Renault’s Duster has flown below the radar when it’s economy, but it also has another trick up it’s sleeve. After experiencing the Duster on soft sand and bushveld I was convinced the dusters 4×4 lock mode would pretty much take me anywhere. It doesn’t have the ground clearance of more...

    The Agera RS is officially the fastest production road car on the planet. Gone are the days when arguments were about the Lamborghini Diablos 328 km/h Guinness record or if the Ferrari F40 could top the elusive 200Mph barrier.  Things have sped up drastically the last few decades and although...
