Ford Mustang 2.3 EcoBoost 6 Speed Auto Cabriolet

Towards the end of last year, I tested the V8 Mustang – a car that for me has it all. It’s a car that makes you smile, it’s a car that makes you happy and it’s a car that will pretty much make anyone who comes into contact with it go all giddy with excitement. So, with the Mustang 2.3...

Ford Fiesta ST200 – a Tweaked ST, but still fun to drive in any version

As a child I used to spend most of my weekends watching Bodie & Doyle strut their stuff on TV, whilst also watching them messing about doing handbrake turns and smoking the tyres around the streets of London in a selection of cars from the likes of British Leyland and Ford to name but a few. Of course as you...

Ford Ranger to the Rescue

A few weeks ago I went on a climbing and camping weekend in the Peak District with my wife and two children and we were having a great time messing about in all the mud and doing crazy things like attempting to climb Kinder Scout – which I have to say is roughly an eight mile hike on some...

Ford Focus RS 2.3 EcoBoost Review – Blows you away

I don’t know about you, but I remember the good old Fords from my day, like the Ford Escort RS1600i and the bonking mad Escort RS Turbo Mk1 & Mk2. I myself had an Mk1 Escort Mexico for about three years. It broke down all the time – and every morning I was greeted by the smell of wet carpets...

Ford Mustang 5.0 V8 GT Fastback

https://youtu.be/YIEgYH7pzvM As far as I can tell – everyone loves a Mustang. The reason for this is plainly simple – just look at that picture you see before you and you will soon begin to understand why.  It is simply a work of art – a work of such brilliance that when it first arrived on my drive, I just...

Hennessey HPE400 packs 400 horsepower into the Ford Focus RS

Hennessey Performance Engineering might be more famous for designing the rather bonkers Venom GT and for offering high-end tuning kits such as the HPE1000 upgrade for the Cadillac CTS-V, but the company also produces more reserved and affordable products as well. After teasing us all with images of a shiny new Ford Focus RS, it seems that the tuning...

​6506 people applied to buy a Ford GT. Ford is only building 500.

The four-week window to apply to purchase a new Ford GT has now closed, and Ford now has a list of 6506 people who completed the application for one of 500 cars that will be built in the first two years of production. Now the anxious waiting begins. Although 6006 will be getting the equivalent of rejection letters from Ford—meaning...

2017 Ford F-150 gets new EcoBoost engine, 10-speed automatic

Ford has updated the 2017 version of their F-150 Raptor with a new EcoBoost V6 engine and a landmark 10-speed automatic transmission. The new drivetrain will arrive as an option late 2016, and should do wonders to improve fuel efficiency. The EcoBoost V6 on offer is a revised version of the 3.5L unit first introduced in other Ford vehicles back...

The legendary Shelby GT-H rental car returns

Fifty years have passed since tuning house Shelby and rental car company Hertz teamed up and gave American rental car customers the Shelby GT350H (the 'H' stands for Hertz). For such a momentous anniversary, Shelby has announced a brand new GT-H for 2016. There will be 140 Shelby modified Hertz-edition Mustang GTs for 2016. They'll all be painted black and...
