Overdrive: Car Sales; Range Rover SVR; Why a niche Mercedes is selling well; Quirky news

Hello and welcome to Overdrive a program that plays with cars and transport.

And in this program, we take a close look at the vehicle sales for the first quarter of the year including:

  1. The overall market
  2. The luxury market
  3. The Cheap and cheerful part of the market.


And while on the car sales figure we chat to Mercedes Benz about an unusual result.  Their C Class coupe and cabriolet sales are booming.

We road test the Range Rover Sport SVR.  If you think this is just another SUV for picking up the kids at school, think again.

And in our panel discussion with Brian Smith and Errol Smith we take a light-hearted look at stories including:

  1. Court Orders Small Ohio Speed Trap Town To Refund $3 Million In Unconstitutional Speeding Tickets
  2. US farmers downloading Ukrainian hacks to repair their John Deere tractors
  3. German traffic light has been red for 15 years
  4. Portland Anarchist Road Care will fix your potholes
