2018 Volkswagen Touareg rijtest

If you want a luxurious Volkswagen, this is the car to buy: the third generation Touareg. Why? The Phaeton is done. They said so themselves. We shouldn’t expect to see it in Europe. They still have a derivative in Asia. That one has a different name and is a different car built for that market. […]

Audi R8 V10 Plus review

Do you know what’s unique about this Audi R8 V10 plus? It has no gas pedal, but a volume button. The R8 is the odd one out in the Audi range. It’s the only mid-engined Audi. I could tell TT drivers that their car isn’t mid-engined. It looks a bit like an R8, but the […]

2017 Audi A4 Allroad 2.0 TDI | TEST

You are now looking at the newest generation Audi A4, more specifically the version Allroad. To be honest, looking at the previous modern exterior of Allroad, a few people would say that intergenerational change is needed. However the exchange took place, and it really benefited the “plastic” Avant. Audi really made A4 more attractive in […]

Volkswagen Golf V buyers review

This generation Golf, the Golf V, had a short production run; 2004 – 2008. Its successor, the Golf VI, had a lot of technology in common with this car. VW secretly did a facelift and called it a new model. That doesn’t matter, but the similarities are bigger. This is a typical Golf. Saying it’s […]

Audi A5 2016 review

Let’s start with the design. When the first pictures of the new Audi A5 were released, my colleague Nicola jokingly posted a picture of the old Audi A5 at the top of the article and included a gallery of the car. This fanned the flames of the discussion wether the Audi A5 has been renewed […]

Audi R8 (2007 – 2015) buying advice

Such fun. I’m switching off the after-market sports exhaust. I will tell you more about it later. This is a very nice buying-advice video. The Audi R8. The new type was introduced at the end of last year. That is a good reason to drive the old type and find out what to watch out […]

2017 Volkswagen Arteon 2.0 TDI | TEST

My original intention was to show you this beauty in this light… …unfortunately, the weather got worse, fortunately, in spite of the ugly weather, the car remains beautiful. Do you remember my recent test of the face-lifted Golf, where I said that for me VW is one feet in as a premium car maker? This […]

​Audi RS5 vs Lexus RC F​ | better than a BMW M4 or Mercedes-AMG C63? | Autocar

If you want a fast, fun, four seat sports coupe you buy a BMW M4 or you buy a Mercedes AMG C-63, at least those are the obvious choices. But for the last few years Lexus has built this, the RC F which has been a quirky, unusual, interesting alternative. Then there is the alternative […]

Volkswagen up! GTI rijtest

It’s a bit noisy here in Monaco. For the Formula 1 fans: at the Rascasse corner. Volkswagen parked the up! GTI for us here. I have always wanted to drive the Col de Turini. We’re going to do that, because it’s near here. The up! GTI should be a suitable car. Let me get in […]
