The Corner

Classic

When it comes to the engineering, British cars are more cautionary tale than glorious legend, but there’s an ad running over in the UK for the new Rover 75 that’s making great play of the fact that this was a car that had outranked new Renault and VW models in a recent survey.

The slogan: “Usual story: France behind Germany. Britain out on its own.”

I don’t know who wrote that copy, but I do know that it wasn’t Chris Patten.
