As I write I’m swotting for a Volkswagen event where I’ll be driving the Up! GTI back to back with its Polo and Golf equivalents. I’ve been excited about the hot version of the Up since I first heard rumour of it, comparisons with the original Mk1 Golf GTI of 1976 absolutely fascinating to me.

Exposure to a Performance Car review of the Lamborghini Countach 5000QV at an impressionable age set Dan Trent on course for a life-long obsession with cars. Immersion in the world of used car temptation with a spell as editor of PistonHeads.com only sealed the deal, compulsive online tyre-kicking now a daily ritual. He’s still some way off that Countach though.
