Lexus LC500 UK Road Trip

Great British Road Trips To Enjoy Post-Lockdown In The Lexus LC 500

We reviewed and loved the Lexus LC 500 so with UK road trips now possible and staycations on the agenda for the coming months, here are some spectacular driving routes to enjoy this summer in the Lexus LC 500 with the top down. From Land’s End to John O’Groats, via sweeping bays, soaring cliffs and rolling fells, there are great roads to enjoy.  To provide inspiration, here are some gorgeous shots of the LC Convertible and the LC 500 coupe touring in the Lake District, on Snake Pass and in the Mam Tor area, where the driving experience and the views are breath-taking.

Audi e-tron Sportback 55 Quattro 300kW S Line

Audi e-tron Sportback 55 Quattro 300kW S Line Adventure Tour

The new Audi e-tron is first and foremost a monster electric car that appears ideal for touring. Part saloon, part SUV. It is the size of a Range Rover, yet perfectly proportioned as a saloon, or Sportback, as Audi call it. The scale is only revealed when parked next to other cars where it appears to have been blown up in photoshop. So there’s plenty of interior space and an imposing exterior. Do not confuse this with a small electric utility vehicle. It’s actually a hint of the electric Bentley GT to come and bears many similarities with its luxury petrol cousin.

Isuzu D-Max V-Cross

Quarry Adventure In The New Isuzu D-Max V-Cross

It's Wednesday and I'm driving an Isuzu D-Max V-Cross around a quarry. It is masterful over shale, stone and rock, cruising through a three feet deep river, gliding up a 42 deg sandy hill with ease and managing serious ruts and bumps smoothly.

You may not be familiar with Isuzu as the pickup truck is their only offering in the UK, but they have quite an illustrious history which include racing cars as well as commercial vehicles and buses. They produced 650K vehicles in 2019.

DS 3 Crossback E-Tense La Prèmiere

DS 3 Crossback E-Tense La Prèmiere Wins Hearts

So is the DES 3 Crossback E-Tense La Prèmiere a winner for the new DS brand? Before you get hooked by the looks you need to live with a car and get to know its personality and the longer I spent with the new DS the more I liked it.

The DS 3 La Prèmiere is the flagship model and a fine-looking all-electric compact SUV. It’s pretty much in a category of its own. If style and luxury are high on your list this is a great contender.

Richard Browning Flying Gravity Jet Pack

The Jet Pack Is Here At Last Courtesy Of Richard Browning At Gravity

At last, the real thing is here. The jet pack, rocket pack, rocket belt, or jet suit, whatever you want to call it. The freedom to soar unencumbered above the trees with the wind in your face.

Finally, you can actually fly like a bird. Up, up and away.

Yes, the jet pack or rocket pack so beloved by James Bond and science fictions films “The Rocketeer” is now completely real and surprisingly easy to use.

So why is this Jet Suit from Gravity quite so special?

There are rare moments in life where you can tangibly see the enormity of Mother Natureand feel incredibly small set against such an epic landscape. This is what I experienced as I stood looking upon the crystal clear water of Lomnicky Pleso (Mountain Lake) from a rocky outcrop at around 1,800m. Reflected in the glacial waters was Slovakia’s second tallest peak Lomnicky Stit at 2,634m, just one more cable car journey away.
