If I got £10 for every time someone said to me “What is it?” during my time with the Ypsilon I would probably be able to buy one even though the Black & Red special edition you see here costs an eye-popping £14,950 on the road. What I must explain however is why this car wears a Chrysler badge which is a brand that are know for their larger cars.
You know when a company is series about a product. They always keep the name short and easy to remember. The BMW M1, the iPad, (I’ll think of a few more in a minute). Samsung carry on the tradition with the launch of the Samsung NX, a digital camera that will have the semi-professional (and professional) photographer with a few quid in his pocket drooling over their tripod in anticipation and with a moniker so short even I can remember it.
Descending (or possibly ascending) to Earth in the week after one of my favourite movies of the year (Before Midnight), we have what may appear on parchment, to be the complete opposite in every way, but actually isn’t. ‘This Is The End’ (2013) is also one of my favourite movies of the year, and if judged on bad taste laugh per minute quota, one of my favourite comedies of all time.

Ripping through hits from last year’s “Album of the Year contender,” Celebration Rock as well as 2009’s dynamite debut Post-Nothing, the two noisy mothercanuckers, Brian King and David Prowse shook the show-goers harder than their one guitar and one set of drums arsenal seemed to suggest they were capable of doing.
Refinement is first rate thanks to the rides superb bump absorption that seems to have been perfectly tuned for Britain’s decaying carriageways. Wind and road noise are barely noticeable on the move thanks to the modestly sized wheels and sleek shape; the diesel engine also goes about its business with minimal clatter. It all adds up to a relaxed environment for undertaking long cross country jaunts.
