Irish icons: Honda Integra DC2 Type-R

I'll never forget the first time. I heard it before I saw it, a cacophony of intake noise reverberating off the low motorway walls, rising in pitch and volume. Then, the noise changed abruptly and became a scream, a scream I would later come to recognise as VTEC. At the time, my 12-year-old brain could only compare this to something heard on a racetrack. Then, a white blur passed the Vectra I was sitting in, from which a high spoiler and a red-coloured Honda badge could just about be distinguished. The racing automobile then flew up the next slip road…

The clock reads 60 seconds. A red saloon pulls up to a rutted stage start line, racing brake pads squealing in protest after being vigorously heated for the last five minutes of the road section to the stage. The automobile idles roughly, the noise from the radiator fans almost eclipsing the gruff exhaust note. Two Finnish flags adorn each rear side window, the names Makinen and Mannisenmaki barely visible under a sheen of mud. Thirty seconds. The co-driver reads the first page of pace notes, enabling the pilot to paint an image of the road ahead. The assembled crowd is…

When I got offered the chance to test drive the Bentley Flying Spur V8 there was no hesitation in saying yes to getting behind the leather clad steering wheel of this luxury motor. I had a smile on my face for most of the week. That was until I started telling people that I was going to be driving a Bentley around Dublin for a few days.

First up my housemate crowed "you're not parking it outside the house". Excuse me? Where else does one park their Bentley? Apparently, having a Bentley outside…

Group B rallying: the Lion begins to roar

changagoidem Features | Group B rallying: the Lion begins to roar

After Audi's innovations, what could the rest do to catch up? The 1984 season saw some interesting new developments, and the speeds rose ever higher in the world of Group B rallying.

Paris had woken up. Taking lessons from its competitors, Peugeot's 205 T16 (T for turbo, 16 for valve count) looked approximately like its road-going relative, but every single component had been optimised to be as strong, light and easy to service or replace as possible. Jean Todt's vision and organisational skills ensured that only the best engineers worked on the design, and it would set the template for…

Diesel does nicely for Mercedes

changagoidem Features | Diesel does nicely for Mercedes

Did you know that Mercedes-Benz has been making diesel passenger automobiles for 80 years? Yup, that's right - eight decades, with the 260 D of 1936 heralding the start of a long love affair between the company that patented the motor automobile and Rudolf Diesel's brainchild. Here's a look back at the development over the years:

1936: Mercedes creates the 2.5-litre 260 D, the world's first ever passenger automobile powered by the black stuff (no, not Guinness). Delivering an astonishing 45hp and capable of around 10 litres/100km, it's still much more economical than its petrol equivalents. It's not clear if…

We pit the two most exciting high-performance automobiles of 2016 against each other on Irish roads.

Most years there's one new automobile that stands out. It's the one that gets enthusiasts and motoring journalists alike incessantly referring to it on social media - and to anyone else that'll listen.
