British motor engineering is dead?

As a driver of a classic British car myself, I too have subscribed to the view that British motor engineering is long dead. Not so, said this season’s final episode of Top Gear –apparently those feet in modern times still drive upon England’s mountains green:


  1. Surprising. Even more surprising, 3 months ago TVR returned to British ownership...

  2. I had to know what we kept glimpsing, that looked like it had been warped in from 1932...the answer:

  3. Ahhhhhhh. The Nobel. More than 600 horsepower. Super chassis. Super communicative fun. I drove one last month.... in the rain, in England. Brilliant.

    And its Yamaha/FOrd/Volvo engine makes a very nice noise.
