    What are you driving and why?

    I drive a 2017 Ford Mustang, a 1985 Ford Mustang and a BMW 3 Series 330i (E46). Love the Mustangs for their heritage, looks and V8 power. The burble and torque are always exhilarating. The BMW 330i was a long time dream of mine. It has one of the best straight-six engines of all time, along with BMW’s driving dynamics. It’s a compact package with a big engine – it’s as good as it gets.

    This is Neville’s 1985 Ford Mustang.
