FORD FOCUS IN THE SWEENEY’S SPOTLIGHT
A movie remake of The Sweeney is exciting enough. But Jack Regan will be played by Ray Winstone and he'll be driving the new 250PS Ford Focus ST. We just wanted an excuse to show it because it looks so good. The Sweeney is set in London after all, and they did always drive Fords.

TOYOTA’S HOTLY TIPPED SPORTS CAR DEBUTS
It’s been a while since Toyota has created a car that has been as hotly anticipated as this. Its new front-mounted, rear-wheel drive GT 86 sports car debuts today at the Tokyo motor show. Powered by a 197bhp, 2.0-litre flat-four free-revving “boxer” engine, the four-seater (2+2) will go on sale next June and should cost around £28k.

SKODA IS SUPER-SAFE
Small cars can be safe too. Škoda’s Citigo car has just been awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP safety test and was praised for its protection for adult passengers and pedestrians. The car scored particularly highly for protecting infants and it even has an automatic emergency braking system called City Safe Drive for city driving.
