  3. Goodbye Smart Roadster Hello 159!

    Introduce Yourself
    With a second child imminent, my wife told me I should get a grown up car! Will miss the Roadster - lots of fun, but my new Alfa is beautiful to drive and look at. 2.2 JTS, black with biscuit (?) leather interior. The leather is a bit bright but kind of suits the car. Thanks for all the posters...

  5. America's Most Beautiful Roadster

    Motoring Images
    This is the top gong for hot rods in the US, dished out each year at the Grand National Roadster Show. The name of the show is something of a misnomer because it isn't just roadsters. However, the winning car will be one. Take your pic. You can read a bit more about the...

    A few of the cars on display at this weekend's Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona. I've shamelessly nicked these from Retro Rides who, in turn, shamelessly nicked them from SoCal Car Culture - Car Shows - Cruise Nights - Photos. If anyone was wondering what to get me for my birthday...

  11. Mazda MX5/Eunos Roadster question

    General Motoring Discussion
    Right, prompted by a few triggers (workmate interested in one, RSK getting one and me thinking about changing my car), i have a question about MX5s. From memory, a Eunos Roadster is a Japan-market only car. Some made it to the UK, and some have been re-badged Mazda MX5. These cars are grey...
  12. Which Roadster?

    Poll Room
    The missus wants to get a little roadster jobby next year, and I've always hated the idea as, well, I'm not really a roadster fan, shock horror! :eek: What with the 156's, Galants, Jags etc I've had, you'd have thought I'd have had a Roadster thrown into the mix somewhere. :lol: Roadsters and...

  14. Tesla Roadster

    This time we have an electric car with sports car performance. It is based on a modified Lotus Elise chassis. And since it's so silent, it apparently causes some problems for bicycle riders and pedestrians because they can't hear it coming. Engine: 3-phase, 4-pole Electric Motor Power: 248 bhp...

  18. MGF VVC, BMW Z3, MR2 Roadster...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Guy's, What with it nearly approaching summer I've been thinking about getting myself a convertible for a laugh. I've been looking toward BMW 2.8 Z3's, Toyota VVTi MR2's and VVC MGF's. Now, they all kick out similar performance stats, but the one I'm most interested in is the little MGF...
  19. Which Roadster?

    Poll Room
    OK, we have spent the last few weeks testing various British Weather mid-life-crisis-mobiles and think we have narrowed down the field somewhat. Problem is we haven't, only the MR2 has gone because everything involved shunting the seat back and forwards. We have had a go in all the following...

    Thanks to a keen eyed girlfriend she spotted the limited edition Zonda F in the local pub car park! Must have been a meeting of Ferrari guys as there were a few of those about too. Only had two minutes to take a few pictures. By the time I got back with the camera he had shut the engine...
