McLaren introduced the 720S in 2017 and they can now be bought for half the price they cost new secondhand. In this video I look at why they depreciated so quickly, how they drive and why I think they are now looking like very good value.
The BMW GS first arrived in the eighties and BMW thought the Paris Dakar race would be the perfect event to prove its toughness and reliability. They proved to be correct and the GS went on to win Dakar in 1981, 1983, 1984 and 1985.

The 2020 BMW M2 CS is the ultimate edition of the M2 Competition with lots of carbon parts to drop the weight down as much as possible and 450bhp, a jump of 50bhp over the regular M2 Competition.

The 2003 BMW M3 CSL was an epic M3 but for many enthusiasts, it was hampered by only being available with the SMG automated manual transmission. But now enterprising companies like Everything M3s in Banbury are converting CSL M3 gearboxes back to manual transmission and that's what I'm reviewing here.
My Jaguar XJ-C V12 manual restomod is a bit of a sleeper. It's one of the stars in the garage but its bodywork has always been a bit scabby so it's time to make it as good as the rest of the car.

The Toyota GR Yaris has proved to be a big hit with the media since it first arrived but what's it like to live with and are the Litchfield enhancements worth going for?
This week Harry's Garage review the 2021 Ferrari Roma real-world review. As stunning as it is to look at, is it actually a flawed diamond? It's super quick thanks to the 620ps twin-turbo V8 but there's lots of new tech in this car, which Ferrari has never fitted into one of their cars before and I'm afraid it might be too ambitious...
The new Land Rover Defender is winning plenty of plaudits but what's it really like to live with? To find out, I tested this Defender 110 P400 in all conditions; rain, snow, floods, shopping and commuting to see if this really is a proper Defender.
