Some cars are ballistic. This one is a seismic event. A force of nature. 710 hp. Not sophisticated, not playful, not understated. Pure, raw American muscle, that trumps its competition. I experienced the Trackhawk.
While I was on a road trip in the Karoo, Corona happened. So I spent five weeks of lock down in Prince Albert with BMW’s 3-series flagship, the M340i, flattening the curve in a parking lot. Finally I was allowed to go back to Cape Town. On a deserted Route 62.
If you would have a choice, which flagship top-of-the-range BMW would you choose? The rather inconspicuous 7-series sedan or the not so subtle X7? Could latter even be an in-house threat to the traditional limousine? I spent some quality time with both vehicles to find out.
The original 1968 Ford Mustang of Steve McQueen ‘Bullitt’ fame was recently auctioned of in the States – for R54 million. Making it the most expensive Mustang ever sold. GQ motoring ed Dieter Losskarn experienced the limited edition 50th anniversary Bullitt model. On South African roads.
The second-generation of Audi’s extremely popular entry-level luxury compact crossover is bigger, more attractive, more powerful and it features more standard features than before. Reason enough for Dieter Losskarn to take the mini-Q8 on a short road trip.
LossKARn took Volvo’s flagship SUV XC90 out on a little road trip along the Garden Route and into De Hoop Nature reserve. Initially he was quite reluctant to leave the tarmac with the luxurious Swedish beauty.
