Monterey Car Week: What to expect in 2024

A few key events are akin to film festivals and fashion weeks in the automotive world. The British have the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival. The French have Retromobile and the Chantilly Concours of Elegance. The Swedes have the newly launched Auroura Concours, Italy brings us the legendary Concorso D’Eleganza Villa D’Este and Fuori Concorso, and then there’s North America… 

DS7 Vauban: French Flair and Fortitude

The French are known for many things: fine dining, haute couture and an unmistakable flair when it comes to automotive design. 

DS, a nameplate synonymous with some of the prettiest cars in history, promises to bring a French luxury savoir-faire to a German-dominated automotive sector. 

A Question of Range Rover Sport: PHEV or MHEV?

As someone born and raised in Essex, I’m no stranger to the Range Rover moniker. In my childhood years, before Instagram and reality TV, I was glued to car magazines in which you could browse the latest modified Range Rovers from the likes of Kahn and Overfinch in the classifieds. 

The Leica M11: Old Dog, New Tricks.

At first glance, not much has changed aesthetically since the ’50s. The M11’s body is a full-metal housing composed of magnesium, a brass top plate and a black leatherette cover providing reassurance of build quality whilst dismissing any concerns of fragility.

For me, the perfect GT car should incorporate three essentials: a fatigue-eliminating interior, usable luggage space and dynamic performance which can adapt to whatever roads lay ahead.

The final Bugatti W16 SOLD for €9.8M

Much like many who frequent the Louvre, I came to view some art. Automotive art, to be specific. This year’s RM Sotheby’s Paris auction was held at the Les Salles de Carrousel, just mere feet below the glass pyramids of the iconic Parisian gallery. RM Sotheby’s had plenty of classic and contemporary pieces for me to drool over, but I had my eye on something one of a kind: The one-of-one Bugatti Chiron Profilée. 

Villa d_Esté - Roger Chan

The Road to Villa d’Esté

I will always remember the first glimpse I had of Lake Como. I was coming from Milan and just remember seeing a glint of sunshine bounce off the Lake as I approached. I was fixated on this mammoth lake that consisted of some of the clearest water I had ever seen, cosseted in between the Italian hills.
