BMW M550d X Drive Road Test - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
BMW M550d X Drive road test.
It has more torque than the space shuttle and BMW claims it will do over
40mpg. BMW also says it won't be selling the car in the UK or the US, the

Land Rover Bowler EXR S v Caterham Seven Supersport race - autocar.co.uk
Can a 1,750kg Land Rover Bowler EXR S Dakar racer keep up with a 520kg
Caterham Seven Supersport track day toy? Steve Sutcliffe finds out.
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
This is a clash of the opposites. The Bowler EXR S is based on the Land
Rover Range Rover Sport, but very little of the original car remains.
Designed for Dakar-type off-road racing events, the 1,750kg Bowler has
550bhp, a sequential gearbox and trick suspension. But can it really keep
up with a car weighing 520kg on a smooth track? The Caterham Seven
Supersport has just 140bhp, but we all know it can embarrass some exotics.
How about the £155,000 Bowler?

Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going
examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the
most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to
drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up
