2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed – Moving Motor Show Gallery

ESM has been to the Goodwood Festival of Speed before – the last time back in 2012 – but this year was a little different.  It started with a letter from the Earl of March inviting ESM to the Festival of Speed as a fully fledged member of the media. It ended with driving almost 700 miles…

Friday Photo – The Geneva 2015 ‘known knowns’ Gallery

A few years ago, Donald Rumsfeld made an infamous speech talking about things we know, and don’t know about. Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show next week, we’ve got a gallery covering the new cars we already know will be there. That’s mainly because the manufacturers have already spoilt the surprise by showing them to us.  The past few weeks…

News and photos – Ferrari 488 GTB

You have to feel a little sorry for Ferrari. On the day it launches a 660+ bhp twin-turbocharged supercar, the motoring world goes crazy for a five-door hatchback with half the power instead. Oh, and a new yellow Porsche.  Anyway, now the Cayman GT4 and Focus RS frenzy has subsided, let us indulge Ferrari with…

New – The Ferrari FXX K

Own a LaFerrari? Concerned it might not be quick enough? Want to try a special version that’s neither road or track legal, and probably won’t actually be yours to keep?

Based on the last five years of data, the numbers represent the most popular cars financed by footballers through Oracle’s services. Predictably,…

What did we learn from the 2014 Geneva Motor Show?

Here at EngageSportMode we’ve brought you a veritable banquet of new cars in the space of one short week. You can find all our coverage here, but with the dust settling and the return to normality, we’re left pondering just what did Geneva 2014 teach us about the state of the car industry?

Friday Photo – Ferrari California T

When first launched back in 2008, the Ferrari California confused purists to an extent. Here was a front-engined V8 Ferrari, with a folding hard-top and dual-clutch transmission. Being unkind, some accused it of being aimed at those interested in cruising, not driving. Fast forward to 2014, and Ferrari has given the California an update with an extra…
