Connoisseur's Choice

SD: This is a rare sight on British roads - A Peugeot 205 Rallye. And crucially, not a British-market Rallye, but the 'proper' French one.

Why the difference? Because the right-hand drive, UK-market Rallye was merely an appearance-package applied to a bunch of 1.4 XSs. Whereas ironically the left-hand drive 1.3 is the one you want. Because it's more powerful - this is a...

Luxury?

SD: Given that it's always made the world's benchmark luxury cars, it's hard to see what's luxurious about a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost. That is, of course, until you bear in mind what it might have been compared to more than 100 years ago.

Whereas nowadays a Rolls-Royce owner is more than likely an owner-driver, aided in their progress by the smoothness of the car's suspension and...

First of a breed?

SD: There are almost as many opinions as to who invented the hot hatch as there are contenders. However, it wasn't Volkswagen. The Golf GTI brought fuel injection to the mix, but it was joining a fairly busy crowd already populated by stiffened-up twin-carb tearaways from Renault, Fiat, Peugeot, Vauxhall and several others. But was the first hot hatch... the Austin...

The Italian Job

SD: It makes a nice change to see a Ford Gran Torino that hasn't been turned into a Starsky & Hutch replica, as it's an opportunity to remember the market these cars were really pitched at - not bestriped muscle-cars, but luxury coupés with internationalist aspirations.
