Top Car '85

Top Car '85 WE have reached the time of year when television channels churn out endless programmes in which stars present Awards to other stars and when there are tuxedos and tears and wonderfully moving speeches of thanks.

No such criticism can be levelled at the new Capri Mk II, announced at the end of February: a third door has been added to the tail of the all-new body-shell to create what is very nearly an estate car without losing the...

New models from VW-Audi

VW GTIs: 110 b.h.p. sports saloons As discussed in July's test of the Scirocco 1600TS, VW are to produce fuel-injected versions of the Scirocco and Golf, which we were recently privileged to try in Germany.
