It’s the 50th anniversary of the Mini, so what does BMW do? Well they unveil this ugly and hideous concept, a concept which if you ask me will go into production.

The MINI Coupé Concept will be shown publicly at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month alongside the production version of the new Crossover.

NCE will do a convertible version of your Camaro… conversion price starts at around £8k.

Somehow this company makes money turning, Priuses (What is the plural for Prius?) Dodge Rams and even Range Rovers into questionable convertibles.

It’s bad enough that this company is making rubbish convertibles, it’s even worse when you realise people are buying them.

I could do better with a hacksaw from B&Q.

Hundreds of thousands of young motorists are driving on the roads illegally because they do not have any insurance.

New figures seen exclusively by Newsbeat show more than one in five 17 to 20-year-olds is not covered.

According to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, which represents insurance companies, that means there are 243,000 illegal young drivers.

That is compared with one in every 20 cars nationally.



This makes my blood boil. 

Sam, 22, from Kent got caught driving his 1.2 litre hatchback without insurance when he was 18.

He said: “I was driving without insurance because basically I couldn’t afford it, the cost was too high.

“I knew I should have had it but I also knew I was a good driver and I was safe.”

Noble M600


The M600, is a development on the M14 and M15. Top Gear tested the M15 years ago and they loved it, but for some reason Noble have waited this long to unveil the M600. Which looks essentially the same, personally I think the M15 looked better. This looks a bit Cayman-esque.

The British marque parted ways with its usual Ford six-cylinder power plant and looked to Volvo’s 4.4-liter V8 with two Garrett turbochargers bolted to it. In the M600, 650 horsepower and 604 pound-feet of torque are on tap, although the driver has the ability to toggle among 550-hp and 450-hp settings as well. A six-speed manual is the only transmission offered for the powerful V8. Noble expects hypercar performance numbers with an estimated 0-60-mph time of less than 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 225 mph.


I don’t think the company is gonna be the same without Lee Noble at the helm, but I hope the marque continues to make astonishing cars.
