BMW Australia has pulled the covers off its factory backed Team SRM M4 GT4 caged race car, ahead of its planned entry into the Bathurst 12 Hour and Australian GT Championship.

2018 Maserati Levante review

2 hours agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

Back in the day, ‘real’ supercar enthusiasts criticised otherwise stunning Maseratis – like the Merak for example – for lacking the firepower required to mix it with the big boys. The biggest issue surrounded the number of cylinders – or lack thereof more specifically. Fast forward to late 2017, and the 2018 Maserati Levante S […]

A mule for a possible Mazda RX-9 has been spied outside the Nurburgring in Germany.

2018 Lynk & Co 01 review: Prototype drive

15 hours agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

There’s a depressingly familiar script when it comes to the attempts of China’s native carmakers to expand sales beyond their own borders: big promises, poor delivery and – frequently – a speedy withdrawal to lick wounds. So if your first instinct is to see the Lynk & Co 01 as another no-hoper, that’s understandable. With […]

McLaren Senna revealed

17 hours agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

Car makers, like rock bands, often try to return to earlier glories. And like many of the stars of yesteryear, they often fail to pull it off. The modern McLaren Automotive is a very different company from the tiny offshoot of the Formula 1 team that created the original McLaren F1 more than 20 years […]

Another sales record for Skoda Australia

yesterdayVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

Skoda Australia has already broken its all-time annual sales record with a month of 2017 remaining. The Czech brand’s local arm moved just over 5000 cars to the end of November, growing 16 per cent despite a drop in sales from its Octavia staple. This decline was offset by growth from the Superb flagship and […]

Touring Toyota’s marvellous Motomachi and Lexus LC production

yesterdayVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

I’ve seen my share of vehicle manufacturing facilities, and many are alike. Some are more heavily roboticised than others, many are remarkably pristine environments, most are sprawling sites best traversed by buggy, and each runs to a rigorous regiment. Not surprisingly, Toyota’s Motomachi plant is all of these things. The site’s ground was broken in […]

The next-generation BMW M3 sedan has been spied for the first time, with the car undergoing testing on public roads in Germany.

2018 Honda Civic Type R review: road test

yesterdayVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

It’s understandable, why immense anticipation circles the new 2018 Honda Civic Type R. From a keen driver’s perspective, the Honda company that thrilled us in the 1990s with the likes of the NSX, Integra and S2000 has gone conspicuously AWOL in recent times. Australia hasn’t seen the Type R badge since the 2012 Civic, the semi-entertaining […]

2017 Kia Carnival recalled for brake fix

yesterdayVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

Kia has issued a recall for 628 examples of the 2017 Carnival people-mover over concerns the brake booster’s vacuum hose could collapse.

Rinspeed details wacky Snap concept ahead of CES

2 days agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

You could never accuse Rinspeed of playing by the rules. Past concepts have played around with amphibious technology, drones and, in one case, been able to shrink at the push of a button. It should come as no surprise, then, the latest car to roll forth from the company’s workshop in Switzerland isn’t what you’d […]

2 days agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

Toyota says the Supra isn’t ready to go yet, meaning the hotly-anticipated sports-car collaboration with BMW won’t be on show in Detroit.
