Firstly and quite sincerely thank you for a really neat report. 2015 will be another good year for petrol-heads.

Well done to Aston Martin for finally showing that there is more in their design office than a row of computers and photocopiers working out ways to rearrange existing designs and present them as novelties. But not well done for giving up on long-term investment in conventional power-plants. Other manufacturers used to admire Aston Martin engines well before AMG was even an idea, and now they have meekly taken position behind AMG. Not good, and no praise is due on that point.

Particularly as another recent arrival, when compared with Aston Martin, has driven straight into the lead group in sports and ultra-sports cars, being, of course, McLaren. How Aston Martin are paying for not having a Ron Dennis running the show! Instead they have a shambolic management story. It always seems that at any moment someone could announce that Aston Martin had finally, finally, run out of money.

Finally, praise is due for Bentley realising that developing a real sports car on the same base as the VW Phaeton would not take them very far without producing something far too close to an Audi or a Lamborghini. A very promising prototype/concept, and very, very Bentley. One for another successful return to Le Mans?

Yes indeed, a very inspiring eleven minutes. Thank you
