Anki Overdrive Review

Anki Overdrive

My most wanted toy as a child was a Scalextric and I remember asking Father Christmas for one for a number of years.

Fast forward a few years, my dream car has morphed and changed into something infinitely more practical for family travel and for the last ten years or so I have been dreaming of owning a Volvo XC90, even more so after getting inside one at¬†Carfest last summer.
