The Caterham 7 310R

Craig introduces us to the stunning Caterham 7 310 sports car

As cars go, the Caterham stands out from the crowd, breaks the mould and offers a totally different driving experience. For today’s post I want to share my experience of the Caterham 7 310R. An epic ride for those that want something totally different from the standard saloon.

Based directly on the original Lotus 7, this car takes you back in time. Compact, lightweight and crazy fast, this nippy little racer will take you from 0-60 in a tarmac blistering 4.9 seconds. Quoted by Caterham themselves as a ‘happy accident’ the 310R comes with an upgraded 1.6-litre Ford Sigma engine and an extra 20bhp.

The Jewellery

First up is the gold and brown diamond cuff from Alex Orso. At £270 the 3.5mm square gold and brown diamond cuff is cast in solid Sterling Silver, and plated in 22kt Gold. Available in 2 sizes, the cuff features a 1.8mm square brown diamond, discretely fitted flush into one end. The inside surface and edges of the cuff have a high polish, while the outside surface has a brushed satin finish. The product features Goldsmith’s Company hallmarks.

Alex Orso diamonds are sourced through suppliers who comply with The Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council System of Warranties. The brown tinge of the brown diamond is very subtle making the stone look almost completely clear.

The Kia Stinger

Craig spends a day with Kia and test drives the brand new Stinger

After a short flight from Gatwick airport, myself, fellow bloggers and motoring journalists arrived in Cornwall for a day with car giant Kia to check out the brand new Kia Stinger Gran Turimso.

We didn’t have to wait long before we got our first look at this sleek new motor, as no sooner were we on the tarmac, than three Stingers came hurtling down the runway at great speed with a blur of shimmering red and a gutsy roar of 6 cylinder engines.
