Year of the Horse!

Year of the Horse!

13th March 2014

Chinese New Year is a massive festival lasting up to 20 days and brings together millions of people to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of the next.

Based around a 12-year cycle of animals, each of which makes up the Chinese zodiac, every New Year brings with it an animal and these animals are paired with an element (fire, earth, water, wood and metal) hence, 2014 is the year of the wooden horse! Those born in the year of the horse are said to be active, energetic, straightforward and positive, and that got us thinking of the cars we know that offer many of the same characteristics! So, channelling our inner stallion, we have come up with our list of Peter Vardy cars with the most horsepower… Synonymous with power and luxury, no list of power would be complete without including Porsche…
