2015 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG S Model | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG

The Sultan of Studio 63 (Yawn) My chauffeur seems slightly miffed. “The guy behind just turned left,” he says while checking the rearview mirror. “On the straight!” he chuffs before saying something in German to a colleague over the two-way radio in his right hand while nonchalantly holding the steering wheel with his left.

2015 Ford Edge Sport | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Ford Edge Sport

2015 McLaren 650S Spider| Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 McLaren 650S Spider

Indulgence yes From the front, the 650S looks like the McLaren P1. From the rear, the hindquarters taken from the 12C make it look like a spaceship! It certainly screams ‘Hey, look at me!’ and it blasts off like a rocket. That it costs more than many houses, I can only imagine what the neighbours were thinking. The interior is… Read more →

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

#WTHellcat?! The first time I drove the Dodge Challenger wasn’t back in the summer of ’71 (I wasn’t event born yet) and, no, it wasn’t an original coupe from the last days of the penultimate muscle car era. But it feels like just yesterday that I and the then-new 2009 Challenger SRT bonded on the high-performance test track during AJAC’s… Read more →
