The styling of the motorsport-themed concept heading for the Geneva motor show next month is also shown. The images of the Best Car pages first appeared on fan site SupraMkV.com.

After several years of medical training and hard work, a very good friend of mine has been struck off after just one minor indiscretion - he slept with one of his patients and can now no longer work in the profession.
