Porsche Limo
porsche limo imagePorsche launches new limo

On the back of the popular Cayenne, Porsche have decided to release their latest upmarket luxury car on the American market. A spokesperson said - "The Porsche Limo combines
hi-end comfort with sports car performance."
Wreckered road test
The long awaited Porsche Limo will be unveiled at The Frankfurt Motor Show. The innovative luxury 10 seater has drawn mixed reactions from the few motoring journalists who have so far been allowed behind the wheel, but has proved an instant smash with the well-heeled car fanatics invited to a recent closed doors preview. Porsche claim to have 200 vehicles already on reserve for USA customers, with another 24 snapped up by one customer alone in Kuwait.

On the road
Full specifications, dimensions and trim levels will not be revealed until Frankfurt, but the 6-door estate variant is thought to hold either a twin turbo 3.5 litre flat six or a four cylinder 2.0 litre front drive diesel. My contacts tell me the limo will boast a modified ECU to secure a huge 400bhp at 3500rpm.
In the cabin
Buyers can choose from 4 types of wood and 12 shades of leather. A high roofline allows extra head room for passengers who will enjoy standard on-board delights such as 5.1 surround hi-fi, a 36" Nicam TV, 24-hour waitress service and a retractable ping-pong table.

Audi news
audi car imageNew arrival from Audi

Riding on the wave of the immensely successful Audi TT, the "AudiTTy" brings three wheeler, one seater elegance to those who rate style and economy. The new vehicle is going down like a quiet storm in Germany and is setting the pace for other European car manufacturers.
Wreckered road test
While unlikely to intimidate boy racers, the audiTTy gives a respectable 0-60 in 28.4 sec with a top speed of 98mph. Weighing in at just under 980 kg, the new German sensation is kind to pockets
and the environment with an astonishing 94mpg.

On the road
96bhp 1.4 litre engine makes the audiTTy as torquey as the Renault Scenic. Gearchange on the dash is a little mushy and I'd prefer a bit more information coming through the steering wheel. Low body mass allied to big wheels and tyres give good stability.
Quiet even at motorway speeds and more than nimble around town. Oh, and it is definitely a head turner.
In the cabin
Terrific side-bolstered seat with under thigh support technology. Padded vinyl throughout, chrome trim here and there. The absence of passenger seats allows max elbow room and further space gains come from underfloor storage boxes and a huge bin in the console. The chair rotates 180 and the parcel shelf doubles as a table.

Ford losses prompt Super Trolley
With Ford recently declaring losses of $525m, no surprise that the car giant is diversifying with a startling range of new products. Shoppers and supermarket bosses in the UK are said to be drooling over the imminent launch of the Ford Super Trolley.

A hybrid carbon fibre frame has reduced weight by 30% and radical anti-twist axles prevent any one wheel from trying to go in a different direction from its partners. Moreover, a parking sensor derivative at each corner of the main bay will, Ford claim, reduce aisle collisions by as much as 80%. The rear hand bar can be adjusted to any of four height positions by the shopper and features ergonomic brake paddles which control two piston calipers at the front giving the Super Trolley 0.8g deceleration.
Ford expect the first models to roll out by summer 2004.
