Norway plan to stop the sales of petrol and diesel by 2025 and Germany by 2030, with France working towards the same target as the UK. But how does the UK plan to hit their 2040 plan?

They say that time flies when you’re having fun, and they’re right. This year’s R&T Performance Car Of The Year marks the fifth anniversary of a feature that still has a that new-car smell to it as far as we’re concerned. Here’s something else to make that same point: the movie Happy Gilmore was released more than twenty-one years ago. At the time that Happy Gilmore was filmed, Lamborghini was still building the Diablo, most notably in VT Roadster form. The Diablo VT Roadster was more or less unsurpassed at being outrageous,...Continue reading »

The 2018 Volvo XC60 carries on the Swedish brand’s breathtaking visual makeover under the direction of design chief Thomas Ingenlath. With crisp lines, beautifully restrained surfacing, and a dash-to-axle ratio that makes it look like there’s a longitudinal engine under the hood, this XC60 presents a more elegant exterior than the previous model. But a rising beltline, subtle haunches over the rear wheels, a more steeply raked windshield and backlight, lower nose, and a shorter wheelbase ensure the XC60 is still perceived...Continue reading »

Why do people obsess over Ferrari? To outsiders, Ferrari fandom may seem like a nonsensical cult, but when you learn about cars like the 250 LM, it starts to make sense. This 1960s sports prototype is the quintessential Ferrari—fast, beautiful, and successful, with an overall win at Le Mans in 1965 to its credit.
