Mercedes SL400

Mercedes-Benz SL 400 (R 231), 2014

Creating more mystery over what car badges actually stand for is the new SL400, which contradicts the theory that there is a 4.0-litre engine beating under the hood. That would do nicely. Instead, it uses a 3.0-litre engine, suspended by a pair of howling turbos. The arrival of the SL400 …

Porsche 4S Targa Can’t afford the full-blown convertible that instantly makes a month-end report at the office disappear from your mind, and see sunroofs as more of a giant, whirling, suction vortex that causes any loose piece of paper to repeatedly slap you across the face, causing momentary blindness?

Britain’s Got Talent


Fastest Flying Spur Another uber-fast four-seater that Bentley owners never asked for, because let’s face it, for vaporising the speed limit, they’d have the keys to something like a Ferrari 458 tucked in their pocket.
