Citycars are all the rage in some quarters. And why not? They’re nimble, frugal, little urban runabouts that don’t cost the earth. Plus, they are generally very kind to the planet with low emissions, high miles to the gallon and – as a consequence – low insurance rates. In the past, some were, well a bit boring. But no more. In recent years, most have become funky and fun, and where previously many were almost devoid of extras, mostly these days even entry level models come reasonably well adorned.
Ferrari fans and motoring writers have lavished praise on the company’s newest model, the Portofino. Due to be seen in the metal for the first time at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the Portofino is an entry-level convertible that will replace the much-loved California T.The four-seater grand tourer raises the bar on the California with more power, more aggressive looks, a lighter chassis and sleeker bodywork.
A lovingly-restored Aston Martin DB6 is on the market for almost £350,000 – making it Northern Ireland’s most expensive used car for sale. The 1968 two-door coupe is a special model as it received the original Vantage engine upgrade, meaning it retains the rare original uprated engine. The silver 4.0-litre petrol model is listed on AutoTrader’s website. The DB6 has 76,650 miles on the clock and is fitted out with a black full leather interior.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
