It was earlier this year that I first heard of the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat Prestige 2017 classic car event and I immediately knew I would want to go. On their site it is described as an event for all fans of vintage vehicles – like a Concours d’Elegance. This year the event was held on 23rd & […]

The Goodwood Festival of Speed – FoS – is one of those car events that I almost felt ashamed I hadn’t ever attended. On more than one occasion among friends I have seen a truly surprised expression followed by the words “You never been to Goodwood?!”. It is now clear that the car festivals at […]

With only minutes to spare before the press office was due to close, on the day before the start of the Mille Miglia 2017 classic car race through Italy, we curved in with a Porsche 911 Targa 4 to the Mille Miglia Paddock in Fiera di Brescia. I saw the finish line, a media tent […]

So why did I end up on a Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-road trip in the Scottish Highlands, trying to make it coast to coast in a black G-Wagen? To quote the roadbook, “Over the next couple of days, we will be attempting something no one, to our knowledge, has done before: to drive motor cars from […]

“Did you ever go on a great off road adventure?” was the question in an email I received. My reply was no. I have been off road driving a few times in past, but an adventure? In my opinion an adventure is a journey to the unknown. That is what I would like to call […]

Here is a big photo gallery of some more cars from the 2016 Concours d’Elegance held at Harjattula Manor. I have to highlight in this post a few of my own favourites. Most of the cars I liked the most I already showed in the Winners post. But there were of course also a lot […]

On the C-Class Coupé press drive in Costa del Sol I got the chance to test drive three C Class Coupé cars in two days: one diesel, one petrol and of course also my own favourite – a C63 AMG. But the first car I got in to for a test drive on nice roads was a 204 hp C 250 […]

A while ago Mercedes-Benz Finland sent me an invitation to a two day C-Class Coupé press event in Spain. So last Thursday I took a flight to Costa del Sol (where I have lived one year with my mother, but this was 16 years ago), where we during two days got the chance to test […]

When I for the first time asked Mercedes-Benz Finland about their Mercedes-AMG GT S press cars I knew they had there their press cars were not yet available for test drives. A few months later I finally was able to book one for a two day drive. Because I do not have any relationship with […]

Last October we organized a corporate incentive trip from Hôtel de Paris in Saint-Tropez to Saint Paul-de-Vence to Hôtel Hermitage in Monte-Carlo. South of France is really one of my favourite destinations to tour in. First of all I love the car fleet we use there, perhaps you have already seen some of the cars […]

With season approaching – only two months to the first road trip – I thought it would be nice to share some actual plans here. Because of my work, which of course also involves occasional road tripping on supercar events, calendar planning is really necessary for me. As a person I am quite spontaneous and last minute […]

Last photos from 2014 Geneva Motor Show comes here. Several personal cravings in this gallery to be honest… Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, BMW M3 and M4, Mazda MX-5 (check out the interior on the 1st gen MX-5 they had there – fantastic), Jaguar F-type Coupe, Subaru WRX STI and so on. I also liked the […]

While I am busy making life plans (…as always) I managed to get out the A45 AMG video at least. Few days late – promised it within January – but I am a woman after all. To be honest I have mainly worked with articles and videos for Digiauto lately, so more quiet on this […]

One of the best pleasures life has to offer – good engine sounds. The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG video will be online next month, but here is first a small teaser. I returned the car yesterday after spending one week with it and although I am getting used to parting from my press cars (from my […]

I am in Helsinki since last Tuesday and I will spend end of December here, before flying back to Düsseldorf on 31st. My first thought when I booked my trip here for the Christmas holidays was that I will not book a press car this time. I am just going to relax – no driving, […]
