Volvo C30 Polestar concept, hot lap in-car: Goodwood 2011
Impromptu recording of PetrolBlog's passenger ride in the stunning, 405 bhp all-wheel-drive Volvo C30 Polestar concept car. Apologies for the quality of the footage, this was filmed using an iPhone 4 which, as you'll see, lets us down right at the end.
Great driving by ex-Swedish touring car and Formula Renault driver, Alex Storckenfeldt and thanks to Volvo Car UK for making the passenger ride happen.
Just a shame we'll never see this epic machine make it to production.
Ford Focus Zetec S 1.0 EcoBoost on Millbrook hill route
Firstly, apologies for the quality. The GoPro ran out of memory in the morning, so I used the iPhone 4 instead. And this was only thanks to wedging a Gorrilapod under the head rest!
Secondly, I can't excuse the rubbish commentary, but I wanted to get across what a great drivers' car this is. The handling is exceptional, the engine is brilliant and if it wasn't for a disappointing gearbox, the Focus 1.0 EcoBoost would be a tremendously understated gem.
It's worth a test drive.
Saab 9000i - a slow run up the Pentillie Festival of Speed hillclimb
PetrolBlog takes a slow run up the Pentillie Hill - venue for the Pentillie Festival of Speed. The car is a 1990 Saab 9000i with 140k miles on the clock, so is a rather unlikely choice of car for a hillclimb. Heck, the climb was even interrupted by a fledging bird, therefore guaranteeing that this was the slowest hillclimb ever.

www.topgear.com.pl Ten samochód nie powinien istnieć. Jest tak daleki od filozofii Volvo, że prędzej spodziewałbym się, iż Hellen Mirren zagra w filmie akcji. Ale zaraz.. zagrała! Więcej w najnowszym, czerwcowym numerze TopGear.
