You can see the fastener but you know you can’t get a socket or driver bit onto it without dismantling half the engine! You need this new super-slim flexi-head ratchet from Laser Tools (part number 6744).

One end is a standard ¼in square drive and the other end is a ¼in bit driver; both are reversible and lockable. However, the big advantage is the flexi-head design – both heads swivel through a full 180º at the press of the button and lock into the required position.

The fully-polished ratchet handle is very slim and 300mm long for access to difficult areas, beautifully More >

Great to see the marvellous 595S take its bow at last weekend’s Autosport International.

I’m LOVING this

We’ve been following the little car’s gestation period over the last couple of years and know full well the efforts, blood, sweat and tears that Bespoke Vehicle Developments’ boss Mark Hill and his partner Shelley have poured into the project.

If it looks familiar that’s because Mark acquired the rights to the 595 Barchetta designed by Professor Peter Stevens in the nineties and marketed for a time by the Dove Motor Company. Originally, it was based understandably enough on a cut-down Fiat 126 platform.

Although visually similar, More >


Another aspect of Bespoke Vehicle Developments business is their VIN plate stamping and part marking operation. This superb service offers many benefits – not to mention security enhancements – to kitcar owners and manufacturers especially as BVD offers a mobile service too.

They can mark any service – plastic, aluminium, steel etc – with a permanent, indelible dot pen marker so this is potentially great news for trailers and other identification purposes. You can send tell Mark what you require or alternatively he offers a mobile service too.

He can also supply DVLA-approved stamped VIN plates from a selection of templates or More >

Severn’s replica features a GRP body and uses the Pie Valley Minx chassis meaning a well-tested frame that brings various MGF components such as front wishbones, although Sport’s Quattro, known as Scutellata, has fabricated rear wishbones and either an Audi V6 engine or a More >

Not content with building a new (second) workshop and developing new models like the Escala an as More >


The AlcoSense Ultra uses exactly the same professional 200mm2 fuel cell alcohol sensor as several UK, US and European Police breathalysers, taking accuracy, features and ease of use to a new level and is the culmination of three years of research and development.

The Ultra uses a professional grade sampling system to ensure that only deep lung air (the most accurate part of the breath) is measured by the sensor. It also uses additional professional-grade sensors to measure the blow pressure, flow rate and volume of breath exhaled and takes a reading when one-litre of air has been exhaled ensuring that the most accurate sample is always More >
