Abarth 695 Rivale review: a car so bad, it’s scary Abarth 695C Rivale. Jeremy Clarkson has a wicked and sharp tongue. And when he doesn’t like a car, he tells us all about it. And with this Fiat, in particular, the scorn level has elevated to supersonic levels. I must
Hello and good morning. Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, representing a Jeremy Clarkson article from the Weekend Australian about the Audi Q8. I try to share these articles via Facebook, but unfortunately whilst I’m a subscriber, to read it, you need to be a subscriber too or else you’re presented
Why this is Car of the Year If you want the perfect soufflé in a basement, get a McLaren or a Ferrari. But if you really want to live, look no further than this beast. By JEREMY CLARKSON The Lamborghini Huracan Performante. Photo: Supplied. McLaren has tried a few times over
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, re-posting a story from Jeremey Clarkson. From The Australian last Saturday, Clarkson wails about the Ferrari 812 Superfast. I like the way Clarkson writes. He’s humorous, factual and a lucky bastard for getting the chance to drive the worlds most exclusive cars. Here’s what
Oh, Jeremy. Since you went wild and west to the USA, I seem to think that your writing has taken a different direction. Are you more badge conscious than before? If it doesn’t cost over $100k does a car not rate? I think that the reading public in general and
Dan Neill, a writer for The Australian, is one of those lucky bastards that get invitations to view, drive and write on some of the world’s great cars. Unfortunately, Dan met Mr. Pagani in Monterey USA rather than his atelier in Modena. And again, unfortunately, I’m not on the list
I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.
I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.
thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .
And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.
So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
