This week on evo - Focus RS, re-imagined Singer 911 and more

This week marked one of evo's most important events of the year - the day that our annual evo Car of the Year issue goes on general sale.

The most desirable MX-5s ever?

This week, the SEMA show opened its doors in Las Vegas. One of the most important events of the year for the automotive tuning industry, even full manufacturers get in on the act.

This year, Mazda presented two concepts based on the MX-5. We may not be the new model's biggest fans, but the appeal of the roofless Speedster and sleek Spyder is undeniable.

Ask Goodwin - Top Gear telly?

It was only a matter of time until someone asked our columnist Colin Goodwin whether he's had a shot at a Top Gear audition.

Col has been in the motoring journalist game as long as Clarkson and knows the ex-TG trio well. But in his latest column, he explains why you'll only ever find him in written media, rather than on the TV...

Ford Focus RS first ride

We don't often take first rides, since there's often little to be learned from the passenger seat of a new performance car.
