Celebrating the world's most characterful cars via video.

Best known for founding evo magazine with a group of talented motoring journalists back in 1998 which, much to our surprise, went on to become a global player in the automotive media arena. Also wrote stuff for Octane Magazine and Sunday Times.
Left evo in September 2013 and became an outside advisor to Jaguar Land Rover, helping to setup of JLR Special Operations.

Hooked on cars from an early age, although my first love was motorbikes, the first one arriving when I was 11. Swapped to 4-wheels when I turned 17 and have been lucky enough to have owned or driven almost every interesting car ever made. This SEnewss channel is my way of sharing this passion for all things motoring with an equally passionate audience.

22:52Ferrari F8 Tributo review. Too fast for the road?


  • Did you see the Audi A2?

  • Harry looks like he's got a bit of "lockdown tummy".

  • 11:25 mind the pot holes jon ;) The state of our roads here in England are an absolute disgrace and yet nobody ever mentions it. They've gotten worse and worse..

  • Great engine sound

  • Ferrari seat lifter cost as my entire car toyota yaris lmao. cood video :D

  • His personality doesn’t fair with the Car

  • Not into Drop Tips $$$$ extra for Sun & Wind in your Hair, scalp 👎🤔😷😎 I love Coupes save $$$$

  • GBP 4,720 for parking assistance...

  • Harry, I have trouble hearing you over the background road noise and the engine. Not just this video but numerous others. Can you up the voice volume of down the background noise, or both. Otherwise, I enjoy your videos very much. Keep up the good work.

  • I don't watch videos about cars and stuff but Harry's videos are far more than just cars. He is a class man and also makes me feel that I might consider buying one of the cars he is presenting whereas I can't even afford orange stitches. I like that he shows to us that these are above all things and not a matter to boast about. He just treat it as normal as for instance a Fiat 126 that I owned years ago. Pleasure to watch. Thanks Harry.

  • Thankfully Mr Plod has yet to feel Harry’s collar.

  • Harry broke the speed limit in the intro 😂😂

  • It looks more yellow than orange until you see it up close

  • Looks wise it reminds me of the Space 1999 Eagle Transporter

  • McLaren can also fit a standard Terry's Chocolate Orange in case you get the munchies on a long run. This option is £972.

  • I hope we get to see Harry in an elise or exige final edition soon, those are cars I could see Harry getting on with

  • Excellent 👌🏼

  • Jayemm definatly downvoted this vid.

  • Time to turn the adblock off. Cheers Harry.

  • And the interior quality?

  • £250 for someone to change the colour of the thread in the sewing machine is taking the piss.

  • Not a bad car really the 720. But I agree with Jeremy Clarkson, Lamborghini and Ferrari are more special cars to drive and operate on a daily basis. And that Lamborghini turns heads like you wouldn't believe. People who don't even know anything about Lamborghini get super excited when they see it.

  • These reviews are just a delight to watch and should be treasured. An intelligent, insightful, informative middle to upper class white man like Harry just wouldn’t be allowed on the BBC for example.

  • yea 60 LMAO

  • I don't like the front lights! Why this big hole?

  • Interesting that the classifieds in the UK have these around 140k GBP. At today's rates, that's about $200k. Took a quick look at US classifieds, and most used 720s seems to be around $250k+. For whatever reason, residuals seems to be stronger in the US.

    • I check prices in Germany too and they are 25-30% more money secondhand than in the UK there too. Hence why I said the 720S is currently a bit of a bargain in the UK right now.

  • I wonder if a 6'3 person can fit well behind the wheel of the new rwd Evo?

  • That car is superugly.

  • In South Africa we pay R7.5 million for a second hand 720s that is insane.If you take 145000 pounds convert to rands that is R2.4 million.3 times the price so if your ever in SA and you see a 720s you actually know that that person has Bugatti money lol

  • 30mpg. Get a £10k diesel and you could get 60mpg easily at the speeds you drive at.

  • Only question that is still remaining, can you fit two brompton bikes and an outboards? ;-)

  • Truly is my bucket list car.

  • Nothing more than an extremely expensive plastic money pit.

  • One of the few cars that keeps a 1000cc sports bike honest in a drag race to 100mph and it will be easier to deliver the published times for an average driver than average rider. But then a second hand litre sportsbike is a lot less than £140k+ Great review as always Harry!

  • 14:15 I just love how the camera cuts to Harry's face just as the speedometer reaches 60. thumbs up indeed.

  • Shame the build quality is like a Tesla.

    • build quality aint that bad - its the customer service that is like Tesla

  • 04:28 And there it blinks from the background - the real nice car, the Espada.

  • Nice to see you back H.Please ask McLaren if they could be awfully nice and let me swap my Mustang GT for that car.I would be most grateful and even allow advertising on it for them. Brilliant film as always.

  • nothing exciting about it, meh...

  • "All the dampers talk to each other" so the same as the suspension on a Princess?

  • Harry is I’m my opinion...........SIMPLY THE BEST 🚀

  • As it has too much performance, isn't it better to get one of the lower Mclarens?

  • Nope. Looks bloated. Harry, can you please give us an idea on size?

  • Very good video, but you can't add up 3 cars in 10 years as for carbon footprint as the cars will be used by someone else after, they will not be scrapped after your 3 year use.

  • Hilarious how much car people can be conned into paying for carbon fibre.

  • Great review... Buy British (Bahraini)!

  • Shocking shut lines.

  • Great vid as ever and interesting views on McLaren GT range. Nice to see the new Yaris with a slot in the barn.

  • Chris Bangle was way ahead of the times at BMW.

  • As ever Harry great review. I have the original 12C Spider in silver (too old for orange) Phenomenal piece of kit Good points - performance- handling- tub- suspension- roof- tasteful- almost practical- track day and Tesco’s ! Bad points - not much - small annoying fails- fuel latch, weather seals- AC faults- wiper arm and spoiler mount corrosion- IRIS system- factory tracker. Top tips - change clutch oil/filter- fit AllTrac- service and warranty with Thorney Motorsport Drive it like you mean it.....🏎💨

    • @Harry's garage Agreed. I actually don’t mind that it gets bashed I find it rather amusing and it’s predominantly by the uninitiated. As Frank S would say ‘it’s an optimally engineered, efficiently innovative design with a small foot print, shrink wrapped in surface metal with a racing development. It’s in motion when it’s parked. Less is More’. And as it says on my own coffee mug ‘please don’t confuse your google search with my engineering degree’ 🏎💨

    • Great choice! Such a shame the 12C got a bashing soon after launch. I guess it wasn't quite ready for market. I did a little research before doing the video and discovered McLarens in general hold their value much better in Germany than the UK and plenty do big mileage over there too. Here in the UK, we love to bash home product and are stupidly sensitive to mileage compared to EU owners. I suggest using the cars more regularly might also help make them more reliable..

  • It look gay

  • The ohh ohhh factor is not there i can name 100 better looking cars......These new cars are all looking and doing the same thing see the gimmick?Yawn........

  • These Car manufacturer build cars to fund there racing programs they can care less what they sell you.Go get the old mclaren and see how to change the battery lmao!!!!Or call in your tech from another country what a joke!!!!I have better ways to spend my money......Ill rent all these junk stuper cars and take them back to where they belong to people that dont spend wisely...like attention and think they have status.I would be bored with these cars in about week.

  • Oh let me think what one will I buy?...I’m sorry Harry does a good job but this stuff is just so irrelevant...

  • Best modern cars IMO in the Garage are project 7 and project 8 usable everyday supercars cars Plus there jaguars alot of people do not know Jaguar history and the role they played in and records set before any major car manufacturer.....Iam getting older new car are gimmicks to get in your pockets a bad investment poor running cost a millennials dream.Unusable super fast cars that people buy for attention or status.Your not a REAL race car driver you have not been to Laguna Seca Virginia raceway any real tracks....just the freeway see the gimmick....All these new cars will be forgotten .Glad iam getting older and have better taste and class............And dont fall for hype or gimmicky lifestyle.I can drive and fix any car iam a master technician so i can buy and maintain anything i drive.I guess when you can build and fix anytype of car they just became parts..................and more parts that fail..........And some people just see the shiny paint and gizmos lol!!!!Car world industry is becoming a joke!!!!And actually alway been a gimmick to get your money....I can have more fun in a 1957 Convertible Bel Air than any stuper car.....lol.........Yeah Stuper car not super.

  • This video changed my opinion and appreciation form for mclaren

  • 'great value' ... but £2.5k to have a different colour of stitching!? You are having a laugh Harry!

  • Has he gotten himself his own red GR Yaris??

  • "a fair bit of opposite lock"

  • Nice, but not a good copy of an Aston. And so I will stay at my 99er Aston DB7 Vantage. No bling and blong, with a manual gear box, pure fun with the right noise.

  • Thank you Harry for another brilliant road test. What a machine Athe technology in these modern super cars is mind boggling.! As always you convey your comments in really easy to understand language and leave me looking forward to the next episode!

  • HI Harry, re previous comments about your test route I did it today in my SLK55, I loved it. Swooping curves, many undulations and changes of camber, blind rises, hidden bends, all in all a great road and perfect for testing I’d say. Yes it’s bumpy in places but this is the U.K. and roads are bumpy but no potholes (which is more than I can say about the Cirencester to Burford road, it’s a disgrace, thousands of pounds of suspension work awaiting you), great for suspension testing (the SLK handled the compression perfectly btw). Unfortunately having followed it to the end I got lost in a maze of road closures and ended up in Woodstock! Hey ho, I had a brilliant day out top down in the very warm sunshine. I’ll watch your vids with extra attention from now on. V Best TonyS

  • Great vid, as always, but the whole Mclaren thing leaves me cold. Do nothing for me, don't get them.

  • After 5 years, Ferrari sells for what you paid for. Mclaren you can trade in to 2020 Yaris.

  • I know beauty's in the eye of the beholder and all that but from the front ( 2:27 ) this car looks like a gagging wasp.

  • Great informative balanced review Harry as ever, fantastic to watch and enjoy

  • Ewwwww

  • Yeah, great value. Think I'll grab a couple.

  • I’d rather get a Ferrari.

  • I'm just saying as a viewer, I don't mind a lack of eye contact whilst driving. The synched audio commentary and exterior driving bits are ace.

  • Stunning car. Shame they allowed the poor QC/reliability reputation to grow. Have also reminded me of later TVR with a confusing line up and lineage of models in the same basic niche.

  • Surprised Harry you didn’t take it down the steep hill in the field (and back up again) then test it’s wading depth in the flood pond at the bottom 👍

    • about as relevant as the fact it can reach over 200 mph

  • So out of the F8 Tributo, the Huracan and the Mclaren 720S, it seems the F8 Tributo comes out last.

  • I’ve got a budget of around £50k..... Would you go for an F Type or a 718?

  • "How many special editions of this are you going to make?" Mclaren: Yes."

  • There's no way i'd get a four-piece double handed salmon rod plus a pair of waders and my Cocker Spaniel in there, and on that basis i'm out

  • What is Harry's watch in this episode, Patek?

  • Love revisiting old Harry's Garage

  • Not that pretty is it ? love to see a McLaren ‘ sports car’ not hyper car ....equivalent to E Type or Austin Healey 3000. who needs 800+ HP nobody.
