Tax discs were scrapped in 2014, when a new and non-transferable system of vehicle excise duty came into force. The system is now completely online, which has made the old paper tax disc obsolete. Yet, like stamps or foreign banknotes, the colours and regional differences of tax discs mean they’ve always been collectible – and being obsolete now makes them even more desirable. Tax discs from the 1920s can command vast sums on popular auction sites such as eBay – one recently … [Read more...] about Your old tax disc could be worth more than £1,000

918 Spyder / Auctions / Porsche / Sponsored Sponsored by Mecum Auctions August 3, 2018 Shares Facebook LinkedIn Tweet Google+ Pin StumbleUpon Reddit Email Yes, you read that right. One of the most powerful and unprecedented cars of all time is heading to Mecum’s Monterey Auction. If you like your Martini shaken and stirred, this one is for you. Only 918 examples of the Porsche 918 were produced, and many have been lost due to inexperience. It takes years of wisdom to respect 944 lb-ft of torque and 887 horsepower. As Porsche’s first hypercar, it combines the 4.6 liter V8 from the RS Spyder race car with a hybrid electrical system. The battery provides power to an electric motor/generators mounted at each end of the car. The front one powers both front wheels, and incorporates torque vectoring and battery regeneration when braking. If your trip is under 20 miles, you can do it silently by running on battery only. With one touch … [Read more...] about Martini Porsche 918 Spyder w/ Under 1,000 Miles at Mecum Monterey

► CAR reviews new BMW i3 REX► We live with i3 Range Extender► 94Ah EV battery range on test Almost exactly one year after it arrived on CAR’s fleet, the slate grey BMW i3 has gone, leaving me with pangs of loss. It didn’t set my trousers on fire dynamically, nor can I fondly recall individual drives, but the i3 fostered a new type of connection.It’s the modernism at the heart of the i3 where the magic happens. When you open the pillarless doors and sink into the minimalist cabin you feel good – it’s decluttered, and roomy with that lack of central transmission tunnel. Optional £780 twin sunroofs bathe the recycled dashboard in daylight, while the suicide rear doors draw more interest than ire (the fronts must be open before the rears).We regularly carried four passengers – this is a roomy car for something less than four metres long. A practical small electric car? Nearly. There’s no fifth … [Read more...] about A year-long test of a BMW i3 Range Extender: what did we learn?

Count us as interested…You can read our full BMW i3 S review here. By Tim PollardThis month's big picture (above) is what the i3 is all about: it's a reminder that electric cars can be fun to drive! This is heartening news in an age where it's easy to be sucked into a vortex of negativity about the future of motoring, automotive pleasures as know them crippled by taxation, emissions, congestion and headline-grabbing ministers pledging to eradicate … [Read more...] about Our BMW i3 has been superseded by a facelift
