We all love a classic car or motorcycle up here on the top floor of MotorMartin Towers so when Jaguar Land Rover got in touch recently to talk about their own 4ange of Classics there were quite audible intakes of breath. Jaguar Land Rover Classic have shared with MotorMartin that they have launched a brand new Classic Drive event at Eastnor Castle, which allows guests to experience the terrain where Land Rover honed many of its legendary all-terrain vehicles and to get behind the wheel of some of the most beautiful Jaguars ever made! Superb. Based at the spectacular 5000-acre … Continue reading News: RELIVE JAGUAR AND LAND ROVER LEGENDS WITH NEW CLASSIC DRIVE EXPERIENCE AT EASTNOR
Kia have let it be known to MotorMartin that their stunning Kia Stinger, the company’s first gran turismo and first rear-wheel-drive car in the UK, will cost from £31,995 when it goes on sale on January 1 next year. With pent-up demand reaching fever pitch, Kia is releasing pricing and specification details as the order books open. Stinger, Kia say, evokes memories of the classic age of grand tourers, when the joy of the journey made getting to the final destination almost a disappointment, and the time to get from A to B almost insignificant. The car has been six … Continue reading News: STUNNING KIA STINGER GRAN TURISMO TO COST FROM £31,995
Suzuki have confirmed to MotorMartin recently that they have launched a new hire purchase finance deal on their excellent range of small bikes, which means the new GSX-R125 can be ridden away from as little as £89.28 per month over 36 months, with no final balloon payment and a deposit of £1,000. A bargain. However, as part of the same offer, it’s been explained to MotorMartin that customers can also put down a minimum deposit of just £33, making it even easier to ride away on one of Suzuki’s small capacity machines. With the minimum £33 deposit the new GSX-S125 … Continue reading News: SUZUKI LAUNCHES NEW 3% HIRE PURCHASE DEAL ACROSS SMALL BIKE RANGE
Ford have once again provided us, the public, with a very important service by asking the question “Could this be the perfect road trip – a stately promenade of the ultimate coast road, followed by a record-breaking blast around a very special circuit, unfamiliar to all but the biggest racing fans?” And in MotorMartin’s opinion, they might just be right. The Atlantic Ocean Road, which showcases the jaw-dropping beauty of Norway’s shores, is certainly one of Europe’s Greatest Driving Roads, a video series from Ford that now turns the spotlight on the Ford GT supercar and one that will continue … Continue reading News: WATCH FORD GT CRUISE ATLANTIC OCEAN ROAD – WITH A DETOUR TO SET NEW TIME AT WORLD’S MOST NORTHERLY CIRCUIT
As a lover of all things motoring it was a surprise that MotorCycle news articles were not present from the start of MotorMartin and yet, like the two wheeled content of the MotorMartin garage, two wheeled news is increasing at quite some pace. One such news article that arrived recently up on the top floor of MotorMartin Towers was especially important if you’re a new member of the two wheeled family. After getting a motorcycle licence things can sometimes spiral out of control if you are not careful; from the costs of the bike to the actual kit. The one … Continue reading News: NEWBIE RIDERS: TIPS FROM IAM ROADSMART
