Irish Icons: Lancia Delta Integrale

changagoidem Features | Irish Icons: Lancia Delta Integrale

Group B rallying's demise left a vacuum that Lancia duly filled with the Group A Deltas, trouncing all comers for years. We drive the ultimate road-going version of the iconic Integrale.

Fever

There's a faint whirring noise emanating from in front of you, a beautifully mechanical tone. From the rear, a slightly offbeat thrum, not as gruff as a Subaru's flat-four growl, but characterful nonetheless. Compared to the industrial drone of most turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engines, this is very different.

The vents at the rear of the bonnet emit a shimmering heat haze, as the hot air in the engine…

changagoidem Features | Ford EcoSport vs. Nissan Juke vs. Renault Captur test

Baby crossovers are all the rage right now, offering a little SUV cool on the footprint of a supermini. Here we pitch the Renault Captur against the Nissan Juke and the Ford EcoSport.

In the Metal

So different are the three automobiles under test in terms of appearance that we can well imagine buyers making their minds up before they see the prices, lists of standard equipment or running costs. The EcoSport looks the most SUV-like with its spare wheel automobilerier on the side-hinged boot door (that's not standard any more), though its proportions are a little curious - it…

We get schooled: drifting at Rally School Ireland

changagoidem Features | We get schooled: drifting at Rally School Ireland

I feel as if I should be shuttled into a small room, into a circle of hard plastic school chairs, amongst others suffering my affliction. After a few soft, gentle, welcoming words from the group leader, I'll stand up, nervously clear my throat and say the dread words. Hi. I'm Neil. And I cannot drift...

It seems such a natural part of the modern motoring writer's armoury. Certainly for I, raised on a solidly healthy diet of mid-nineties Autoautomobile & Motor it should be. Barely a week of my adolescence went by without some fabulously lurid photo shoot of the…

changagoidem Features | 2017 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship launch

After a big rules shake-up at the start of the season, the 2016 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship delivered one of the closest title battles for years. We report from the Mondello launch for next year's championship

Visit sunny Mondello

Automobileagh in Co. Kildare has its own micro-climate that ensures it measures at least five notches further south on the thermometer than any other part of the country at any particular time of year, of that I am certain. A 5am start and the long trudge up the M8 from Cork is never the most pleasant way to start a Saturday…

changagoidem Features | How to de-ice your automobile in the morning

With heavy frosts covering the country, here are some dos and don’ts of getting the ice off your automobile.

Clearly, the correct way to defrost or de-ice your automobile is to pack your spouse or significant other into some wellies and a warm coat, hand them a scraper and let them get to work while you go back to bed with a cup of hot chocolate and a laptop to read changagoidem…

‘Petrolgate’ looms as emissions scrutiny turns away from diesel

changagoidem Features | ‘Petrolgate’ looms as emissions scrutiny turns away from diesel

With diesel now in (slow) decline, legislators, manufacturers and eco-warriors are staking out a new battleground of petrol engine emissions.

European legislators are being accused of giving automobile makers too easy a ride when it comes to enforcing emissions regulations for petrol-engined automobiles. Leaked draft proposals, obtained by environmental pressure group Transport & Environment (T&E) seem to show that the upcoming legislation for real-world driving emissions (RDE) will allow automobile makers to exceed the stated limits on pollution by as much as 50 per cent.

The battleground over emissions has shifted in recent months, as diesel sales begin (slightly) to…
