Audi S8 with 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium sound system

Read our Audi S8 review here. I remember a time when having a four-speaker stereo in your car made you king of the carpark. A pair of 6" speakers in the front, and some 6x9's in the rear parcel shelf. But today, with cars like the Audi S8, things have moved on a little bit... The $280k Audi S8 comes standard with a 14-speaker Bose stereo system with over 600-watts of power...

2015 Toyota Aurion pricing and specifications

The 2015 Toyota Aurion is now on sale in Australia with subtly revised styling, a tighter three-variant range, and updated pricing and specifications.

Bentley goal to be seen as standalone luxury brand rather than luxury car maker

Iconic British manufacturer, Bentley Motors, is seeking to draw from its near one hundred year history building luxury vehicles, to be seen as a standalone luxury brand in its own right. This positioning would see Bentley mentioned in the same breath as names like Bottega Veneta and Hermes, where in the eyes of the buyer, the aspiration of ownership is second only to actual ownership...

Ford Falcon FG X fails to fire, slumps to lowest monthly sales in nameplate's history

The refreshed Ford Falcon FG X has failed to fire in its first full month on sale, slumping to the worst monthly sales performance in the 55-year-old nameplate’s history.
