The DeLorean Motor Company may have only been around for two years in the early eighties, but the DMC-12 achieved cult status when it was chosen to be time-machine by the makers of the Back to the Future Trilogy. They especially liked the futuristic gull-wing doors and stainless steel bodywork. Twenty years on, several companies have sprung up to serve the cult following, selling all the props you need to convert your DeLorean into the BTTF Car - incl. the BTTF1 Fuel Cell, Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor and even a Flux Capacitor!.
An exciting nationwide design competition to find fun new ways to travel has been announced by Fiat Group Automobiles UK, starting today.

Up until very recently, whether or not a car is "green" was less important to most British motorists than the actual colour of the paint. However, the most important factor was, and still is, price. BCA - the UK's largest used car seller, has provided proof that motorists are now making the connection between the two by discovering that there is a strong demand for hybrid/electric and LPG powered cars in the used car market. In fact they are selling well above the market price for their petrol and diesel counterparts.
Our panel of expert judges used the e-factor: energy, efficiency & enthusiasm to decide on the greenest vehicles and drivers. Exhaust emissions were measured by VOSA and the driver's skill was tested in the eco-driving simulator provided by the Energy Saving Trust.
