The founders: The world’s fastest cars and our second Full Throttle trip

The founders: The world’s fastest cars and our second Full Throttle trip

September 7, 2020

The fourth episode of the Founders Podcast looks at the second Full Throttle trip.

If you liked our original Founders Podcast on Full Throttle 1 where we bolted off to Europe for one of the first drives in the Bugatti Veyron, we hope you’ll enjoy a few laughs as we take you back to Europe for the second instalment of our Full Throttle trip when we got to drive nine of the world’s fastest cars scattered across four countries.

Oh, and while the first Full Throttle adventure drained us of cash and equity, this next trip very did nearly wipe us out. Funny thing is, we wouldn’t have it any other way as we got to drive a few supercars that no one else had driven before us, like the Veritas RS111,  Brabham BT92, and GTA Spano from Spain. 

It was a wild ride that saw us run out of cash at a Spanish airport after Ryan Air cleaned us out for extra baggage charges as we tried to get to Sweden for a Koenigsegg drive and factory tour with Christian Von Koenigsegg himself. 

And, who would have thought we’d be drifting a twin-supercharged Audi R8 by ABT around tanks at a German military base and then drag racing our M5 on the tank firing range.

It was a rush but also hilarious at times. Strap in and enjoy the ride as we relive the early years.

This is another long and uncensored episode, so grab a beer or a coffee as we take you through it all!

The founders: Why we bought the cars that we bought

The founders: Why we bought the cars that we bought

August 14, 2020

The third episode of the founders' podcast looks at the cars we bought and why we bought them.

A lot of motoring journalists don't own cars, or if they do, they rarely drive them. That's why people are often surprised to hear that we own a bunch of random cars, with our taste in cars completely varying between the three of us.

In this podcast episode we talk about the cars we owned before CarAdvice, the new cars we bought and finally the used cars we've acquired since selling the old business.

To cap things off, we thought we'd include a gallery of our cars at the CarExpert website (link below) so you have something to flick through.

Let us know what you think, which car you'd like to drive away in and which topics you'd like to hear us cover in future episodes.

This is a long episode and as always is uncensored, so grab a beer, or a coffee, or any other refillable drink and enjoy!
