Mercedes-AMG Festival of Snow

Mercedes-AMG Festival of Snow

What if I told you Mercedes-Benz is paying, for you, to go learn how to drive and drift on snow? You'd immediately rush to sign up, right? Thought so. Well, alright, the brand isn't exactly picking up the bill, but the Mercedes-AMG snow experience – held in Queenstown, New Zealand, arguably the most beautiful location on Earth – is at least heavily subsidised...

Five-year warranties should be standard

It’s time we start asking car companies to up their written warranties . There is simply no good reason a Kia Sportage should have a seven-year warranty while a Toyota RAV4 is offered with only three. Is Toyota suggesting its product is not as good as a Kia? Is that the reality, in 2017? No, Toyota has it easy, knowing it can sell the RAV4 in high numbers through its reputation for quality, durability and reliability...

TVR teases new 'Griffith' sports car again

After 12 years of dormancy, reborn British company TVR is closer than ever to releasing its all new car, with yet another teaser photo (above) released on the company's social media over the weekend. The new sports car, which the company claims is more alongside what Aston Martin offers with the Vantage, rather than what Porsche offer with the 911, is likely to resurrect the 'Griffith' or Grif name when it gets its official unveiling at this year’s Goodwood Revival event on September 8...

Porsche Australia ‘displeased’ with profiteers and speculators on its special models

Porsche Australia says it is displeased with the profiteering and flipping that has occurred on its limited-edition vehicles such as the 911 R. The limited-edition and numbered Porsche 911 R, which is essentially a GT3 RS with a manual gearbox and road-focused body work, has seen prices more than double on the used car market as some owners have chosen to sell their vehicle immediately after purchase for a profit...
