Motor Critic of The Week Quotations

Quotes by AA Gill

"The Bentley is near-on 30 years old. It was built in Britain by hand. It had three or four owners before me. It’ll probably have five or six more and go on for another 20 years. That’s impeccable recycling." - Bentley vs Mini Cooper S on Eco-points

"Secondhand Bentleys are so big that they can park in two style zones simultaneously. They’re deeply cool and fundamentally uncool at the same time" - Bentleys

"What it’s actually like is a contemporary comprehensive kid compared with a skinny free-milk kid of the Sixties." - Comparing New Mini Cooper S to the Old

"Scything through turns, leather driving gloves rarely shifting from ten-to-two on the Nardi wheel, dispatching lines of asthmatic super minis without car or driver breaking a sweat." - Maserati GranTurismo in Italy

Quotes by Jeremy Clarkson

"You see, my wife loves this car. She loves the noise and the vibrations and the sense of danger and the way that when you over-rev it, the whole dash lights up like a baboon's backside. Richard Hammond on the other hand, he pretty much hates it. He says its too difficult and too complicated and that all the stitching in here looks like the kind of stitching you find when someone's tried to mend their own shoes. " - TVR Tuscan 2

"It's supposed to be easier to live with, and easier to drive... so has it worked? - Oh.. Ohh, my God. No... no... no, no, no. No. No. No, it hasn't. " - TVR Tuscan 2

"Understeer works like this: [moving a model of a Ford Focus] you drive down the road, turn the wheel, but the car goes straight on, crashes into a tree and you die. OVERsteer works like this: [moving a model of a BMW series 3] you drive down the same bit of road, turn the wheel, but the back of the car comes round like this [showing how the car does a 180], and you go off the road, crash into a tree and you die. Now, oversteer is best, because you don't see the tree that kills you." - Understeer / Oversteer

"The last time I saw plastic like this it contained Tic-Tacs." - American Car Dashboard

Quotes by Simon Moistbourne

"After some protracted haggling and a vague threat of violence against me that gorgeous mostly gold Jaguar was mine and I was happy as Larry" - Jaguar XJ

"his is an engine that is precision itself, tyrannical perfection. This is an engine that could only have come from Germany." - BMW M3's V8

"Well this is an engine that Ferrari would be proud of, except that Ferrari would never have managed to create an engine like this, because someone overdosing on industrial strength espresso would have gone out to buy a packet of cigarettes halfway through the build and forgotten to put the spark plugs in" - BMW M3's 90 Degree V8
