1 OFF ROAD AD­VEN­TURE Hol­i­day­ing on the re­mote Union Is­land in the Gre­nadines, my pre­ferred hol­i­day read was of in­ter­est to Richard, a water taxi driver. Al­though he’s never had the need for a car he was blown away by the McLaren 720S, but what re­ally caught his eye was the Land Rover Dis­cov­ery. Prob­a­bly be a good choice con­sid­er­ing the con­di­tion of the roads. RICHARD CONNER 2 SKY SPORTS Sky­line Drive, Blue Ridge Moun­tains, in my friend’s Porsche Boxster. Years ago I took him …ly­ing in a Hawk jet and now he al­ways in­sists I drive his cars when vis­it­ing. MAX DUT­TON 3 ABAN­DON HOPE Left to die. Sad. DAR­REN SMITH 4 LAND OF THE GI­ANTS Col­lected my daugh­ter’s new Up from the VW dealer, …in­d­ing it parked be­tween two nor­mal-size Aus­tralian cars. What a con­trast! Great lit­tle car, though. (The Toy­ota Hilux was Oz’s big­gest sell­ing ve­hi­cle in 2016). SI­MON EG­GLE­STON 5 PONY EX­PRESS The choice of Ford Mus­tang hire car for our road trip around Cal­i­for­nia may have been a tad clichéd, but you can’t ar­gue with the choice of lit­er­a­ture on the dash­board. KEERON FU 6 CALM AF­TER THE STORM The re­ward af­ter a …lat-out sun­rise run to the air­port across Lon­don, Uber driver sni™ing out the grip and teas­ing ev­ery ounce from his Sha­ran. Beau­ti­ful. JOHN HO­GAN 7 IN THE HOOD En­gine? What en­gine? What sort of car is this? KEITH MOORCROFT 8 THE HEIGHT OF STYLE On a trip to Italy I got to visit the former Fiat Lin­gotto fac­tory in Turin. I had the chance to use the magic lift: key in, turn and it au­to­mat­i­cally takes me to the test track on the roof. Awe­some. CHRIS WILKIN­SON 9 UN, DEUX, TROIS… Stum­bled across this splen­did dis­play on the Av­enue de Ver­dun in Nice. MO­RAY WATT
