WHERE TO GET RARE MODEL CARS

WHERE TO GET RARE MODEL CARS

19/01/2022 10:02:23

Globally renowned for its original specification classic wiper and mirror products, British Motor Heritage (BMH) subsidiary Tex Automotive is now offering an ever-increasing range of enthusiast car parts and accessories, plus a mouth-watering selection of rare or, in some cases, unique 'mint and boxed' model cars. A collectors' goldmine, the selection has been amassed over many years by BMH in its role as global licensee for the Austin, Austin-Healey, MG, Morris, Rover, Triumph and Wolseley brands. It comprises everything from one-off prototypes to limited edition runs, all boxed and in mint condition. A selection of the offerings can be found at www.texautomotive.com. However, it is only a fraction of the total stock, with more examples being added to the website all the time, so collectors are advised to make regular visits to the site in order not to miss out on this exciting opportunity. Currently viewable are such gems as the Kyosho 1/18th scale 1959 Le Mans Triumph TR3S (£41.25 plus VAT) and highly-detailed Sun Star 1/36th scale RAC Austin Minivan (£55.00 plus VAT). Also recently uploaded are a splendid selection of the Corgi 1/76th scale Trackside miniatures that are compatible and therefore the perfect complement to '00' gauge model railway layouts. Now rarely obtainable from other sources, these highly collectable items range from individual cars and vans priced at just £3.50 plus VAT to three-piece sets for a mere £8.50 plus VAT. The classic car parts and accessories also available at www.texautomotive.com include no end of useful items from EBC replacement brake parts to Samco silicone hoses and fuel caps to Renovo car care products, not to mention such ideal and eminently affordable all year round gifts as leather driving gloves and branded key fobs.


PEOPLE MORE IN LOVE WITH THEIR CARS THAN THEIR PARTNERS

PEOPLE MORE IN LOVE WITH THEIR CARS THAN THEIR PARTNERS

06/12/2021 16:13:40

Car finance company, Go Car Credit, has revealed that car owners spend 48% more on their car than their partner. With the biggest-spending season fast approaching, Go Car Credit was keen to find out if people invest more in their cars than their relationships. Surveying 1000 car owners with partners, the data revealed that car owners in relationships spend on average £82.19 per month on their car compared to £55.48 on their partner. The survey found that whilst men spend 42% more on their cars than their partners, women spent 54% more on their cars than their partners. The survey also found that 45-54 year olds spend 71% more on their cars than their partners. And that car owners spend 180% more-time cleaning and maintaining their cars than going on dates with their partner. And it revealed that Renault drivers spend twice as much on cars than their partners, Bentley owners spend more on their partners than their cars and 75% of Porsche owners prefer spend time with their car than their partner. Keen to uncover which car drivers spend the most on their partners compared to their cars, Go Car Credit created a ranked table of car brand owners and their monthly spends. Although Tesla owners were the biggest spenders overall, spending on average £125.15 per month on their cars, MG drivers showed the biggest difference in spend, spending 202% more on their cars than their partners per month. Looking at regional difference, Scotland spend the most on their cars monthly (£98.75) and Northern Ireland spend the least on their cars with an average monthly spend of £73.97. Of the findings, Go Car Credit's Marketing Manager Hayley O'Connor said; "We've always suspected UK car owners take pride in their vehicles. But seeing how much they invest in their cars compared to their relationships is interesting. Despite the pandemic, it seems that people are still prepared to pay more for their cars."


LOCKDOWN BOOST AS LUXURY CARS JUMP UP THE TOP 10 LIST

LOCKDOWN BOOST AS LUXURY CARS JUMP UP THE TOP 10 LIST

08/11/2021 16:42:32

Mercedes-Benz cars jumped two places in the UK rankings of most popular cars during the pandemic, climbing from eight before the country's first lockdown, to six in 2020 and 2021 - the only significant change in the top ten table. A luxury motor might not be the obvious choice amidst a penny crunching global pandemic, but many consumers have surplus savings given their lack of holidays and socialising during lockdown. Research from a consumer insight report shows households earning over £28,000 were able to save more than usual during the pandemic. According to data from Quotezone, the top three reasons people borrowed money during the pandemic were to purchase a car, consolidate their debts and to do home improvements - with car purchase as number one. Other luxury cars, such as Land Rover, are also on the move up the top 20 table, jumping from 19th in 2019 to 17th in 2020 and then 14th in 2021. BMW and Audi held steady at 4th and 5th respectively across all three years. Luxurious motors became increasingly popular right across the UK, with Northern Ireland picking up a luxury car in its top three as Audi move from 4th in 2019 and 2002 up to 2nd in 2021. Scotland see Mercedes-Benz move up the top 10 list from 9th to 8th, and Wales see Audi enter the top five for the first time in three years. Greg Wilson, Founder of Quotezone.co.uk, comments: "The pandemic has given some drivers the opportunity to trade in their motor for the luxury car they've always wanted - with work from home keeping mileage to a minimum and reducing the need for inner city parking which can be both risky and expensive. "In a year without foreign holidays and weekends away it perhaps makes sense that people took the opportunity to upgrade their vehicles. However just because customers bought a high-end vehicle doesn't mean they should pay high-end prices. Comparison sites help customers compare and save, no matter how expensive the car."


BOND FEVER BOOSTS ASTON MARTIN

BOND FEVER BOOSTS ASTON MARTIN

07/10/2021 09:54:05

A few things come to mind when you think of James Bond: martini's, suave suits and of course his iconic Aston Martin. New data from Chill Insurance has revealed that demand for Aston Martin's has increased by 110% in the UK in the past month, as the world enjoys the new James Bond flick 'No Time to Die', Daniel Craig's last assignment as James Bond. Using Google search data, Chill identified a huge spike in demand for the luxury car brand, famously driven by 007 throughout the franchises' 26 films. James Bond movie memorabilia can be notoriously expensive, with lifelong fans eager to get hold of a piece of film history. These are the most expensive James Bond Aston Martin's ever sold: - Aston Martin DB5 (appeared in Golden Finger & Thunderball) Sold at Pebble Beach in 2019 - Sold for £4.6 million - Aston Martin DB5 (appeared in 1995 Golden Eye) Sold at Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2018 - Sold for £1.9million - Aston Martin DB10 (appeared in Spectre) Sold at Christie's, London in 2016 - Sold for £2.4 million


DOUBT ABOUT DRIVER-LESS CARS

DOUBT ABOUT DRIVER-LESS CARS

07/10/2021 09:50:21

A study by Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS) has revealed that 46% of British motorists think they'd be a better driver than driverless cars powered by Artificial Intelligence. Regionally, it's Scottish people who are Britain's most confident drivers with 54% of Scots answering that they'd trust their own driving skills over driverless vehicles. People living in northern England are the second most likely group to back their motoring prowess over driverless cars (48%), followed by people in the South East (47%) and respondents in the Midlands (46%). However, just four in ten people (40%) in Wales and the South West feel they'd be better drivers than driverless cars. Generationally, 18-24 year olds believe in their driving abilities most (52%) whereas just 39% of over 75s think they'd be a better driver than a driverless car. The Department for Transport announced earlier this year that self-driving vehicles could be allowed on UK roads by the end of 2021, with automated lane-keeping systems (ALKS) the first type of hands-free driving legalised. The government says the market in the UK could be worth as much as £42 billion by 2035, capturing around 6% of the £650 billion global market, and creating approximately 38,000 new jobs. The research from Volkswagen Financial Services UK also found that almost a quarter of Brits (24%) think the first fully driverless car will be available to consumers in five to ten years, whilst 8% think they'll never hit the mass market. Just 4% of respondents felt that a fully driverless car will be available to consumers within the next 12 months. And many consumers are not completely convinced by the idea of a driverless car, with only one in five people (21%) saying they're likely to buy a driverless car if and when they become available. However, men are significantly more likely than women to answer that they would be likely to purchase a driverless car (29% versus 13%). As expected, younger people also indicate a greater likelihood to purchase a driverless car. Respondents aged between 25 and 34 years old are ten times as likely to buy a driverless car than people aged 55 to 64 years old (50% versus 5%). Most people who are interested in driverless cars say they would expect to spend their time listening to music (44%) whilst behind the wheel, but 22% of people would still be focusing on the road. Other popular activities envisaged by this group included watching TV or a film (25%), reading (25%), sleeping (20%) and checking emails (17%). The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has said automated driving systems could prevent 47,000 serious accidents and save 3,900 lives over the next decade through their ability to reduce the single largest cause of road accidents - human error.
