Car of the Month : December 2015 – Rainer Höltschi’s Innocenti Regent 1300

Car of the Month : December 2015 – Rainer Höltschi’s Innocenti Regent 1300

The members of our Editorial Team have, over the years, been fortunate enough to see most of the cars featured on AROnline in the metal, but there are still some exceptions. That’s why being able to feature one of those elusive, hitherto unseen models is a particular pleasure. This time it is an Allegro – with a twist. Words: Alexander Boucke […]

Car of the Month : September 2015 – Chris Chantrell’s Austin 1800

Car of the Month : September 2015 – Chris Chantrell’s Austin 1800

Here it is, AROnline’s latest Car of the Month. But hang on, we hear you say, all there is to see in the picture below is an empty patch in a slightly overgrown garden… …if you want to find out why, you’ll need to read on. Words: Alexander Boucke Photography: Chris Chantrell Re(u)sting place Back in November 2013, […]

Car of The Month : August 2015 – John Pollard’s Montego 1.6LX

Car of The Month : August 2015 – John Pollard’s Montego 1.6LX

John Pollard’s Montego 1.6LX was pretty much a new car when he bought it 18 months ago – and today, it still feels, and smells, like a box-fresh example.

Car of the Month : July 2015 – Matthias Boller’s Authi Mini 1275GT

Car of the Month : July 2015 – Matthias Boller’s Authi Mini 1275GT

Minis are undoubtedly one of the big successes of BMC>ARG. Here we have a rather special one, painstakingly restored to original condition as it left the Authi-factory in Spain. This was much more involved than the owner and restorer, Matthias Boller, thought it would be when he started. Due to his determination we are able […]

Car of the Month : April 2015 – Marc Stillebroer’s Rover 827 Vitesse

Car of the Month : April 2015 – Marc Stillebroer’s Rover 827 Vitesse

Admittedly, it’s a little late in the month for a Car of the Month, but that’s because AROnline dedicated most of April to remembering the events of 10 years ago. Anyway, I make no excuses (despite my own well-documented fondness for the model) for featuring another Rover 800 in this spot. Marc Stillebroer is a […]

Car of the Month : March 2015 – Adrian Clark’s MG6 S

Car of the Month : March 2015 – Adrian Clark’s MG6 S

Marmite, personified by a car. That will be the MG6 then… I’m well aware that the car has its detractors, but I’d wanted one since I went along to a VIP Test Drive day at the Prodrive track. I was amazed how the car handled, so much so I felt sorry for the next people who […]

Car of the Month : February 2015 – Dave Dawson’s MG ZR 105

Car of the Month : February 2015 – Dave Dawson’s MG ZR 105

Since its launch in 2001, the ZR has had a cult following. However, today, good ones are getting fewer and further between. Although this one is DAVE DAWSON’s daily driver (at least until his MG3 arrives), it’s good to know its in good hands… My ZR followed a Rover 75 1.8.  I’d always wanted a 75 […]

Car of the Month : January 2015 – David Whitham’s 2002 Rover 75 Connoisseur SE CDT Tourer

Car of the Month : January 2015 – David Whitham’s 2002 Rover 75 Connoisseur SE CDT Tourer

David Whitham A little introduction first – I’ve been lurking around AROnline for a number of years now and have taken plenty out if it, so thought I would offer something in return. I’m a serial AR enthusiast, having admired and, in some cases, lusted after the bread and butter that make this site so appealing […]

Car of the Month : December 2014 – Gavin Harvey’s 1963 Morris Mini Super De Luxe

Car of the Month : December 2014 – Gavin Harvey’s 1963 Morris Mini Super De Luxe

Everybody loves a Mini, but Gavin Harvey’s 1963 example is simply stunning… My love of Minis began at a very early age – there are photos of me at the tender age of two, sitting at the wheel of a new Clubman at the 1976 Motor Show. From then on, I was hooked. I couldn’t get […]

Car of the Month : November 2014 – Jon Mower’s Rover 827 Si Fastback

Car of the Month : November 2014 – Jon Mower’s Rover 827 Si Fastback

Craig Cheetham Thanks for all the contributions for Car of the Month – we’ve now got enough to keep us going until… February! So please, keep ’em coming, or the feature’s return will be somewhat short-lived. Next month’s feature car harks from the BMC era, so this month we’ll drop in a relative modern. Tongue […]
