There's no escaping the fact that the big news this week was bad news - for the employees at TVR, at least.Despite previous assurances from owner Nikolai Smolenski that he would keep the sports car firm in Blackpool, he announced on Wednesday that he was shifting production 'elsewhere in Europe'. The location hasn't been confirmed yet - but as Autocar revealed on Thursday, expect the 2007 models to be built by Bertone in Turin, with engines by Ricardo.
Elsewhere, Audi revealed the first details of its new TT roadster, which will be cheaper than expected when it goes on sale in March. And we revealed that the next generation of Land Rover models could be based on an aluminium monocoque body. Off the beaten track, we highlighted the rising cost of motoring and what happens when rise-and-fall bollards fight back.
Back on the road, we brought you first drives of two high-performance specials - the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and Mazda's understated but rapid 3 MPS. And while spy photos of the next Nissan Skyline broke elsewhere on the web, we brought you the exclusive video of the GTR in action.
In the next seven days, look out for the first official details of BMW's 3-series cabriolet, plus some terrific video of the GT3 RS in sideways action.
