Fast is fast is fast, and with manufacturers ever-more keen to chase performance numbers, elements that slow things down, such the humble old manual gearbox, tend to fall by the wayside. Sadly for DIY gear-change enthusiasts, this is the case with the recently revealed 2017 BMW M4 CS...

2017 Aston Martin DB11 review

Read the full article here. When a new turbocharged future was confirmed for the Aston Martin DB11, the news should have caused Trump-levels of protests outside the brand’s factory in Gaydon. Well, that’s what I thought - right up until the moment I got inside the new DB11 and went for a drive.    ...

Infiniti Australia keen on Q60 performance hero

Infiniti Cars Australia has voiced its desire for a high-end performance flagship version of its Q60 coupe to take on the heavy-hitters from BMW's M division and Mercedes-AMG. Speaking with CarAdvice at the launch of the flagship Q60 Red Sport this week, Bernard Michel, product planning manager for Infiniti's local arm, said despite previous comments that there would be no rival for the Mercedes-AMG C63 or BMW M4 anytime soon, the company would really like such a model in Australia...

Alfa Romeo Giulia QV v BMW M3 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S comparison

For a nation renowned for its love of all things sport, it should come as no surprise this admiration and aspiration extends to what we drive. We are inside the top-10 world sales market list for Lamborghini, Porsche is seeing continuing sales growth and both Mercedes-AMG and BMW M Division speak highly of the Australian market, where we have the highest performance-version to regular-model ratio in the world...

2017 BMW M240i review

The BMW M2 may have stolen all the headlines, but perhaps the best all-role BMW sports coupe lies a little further down the range. James takes a spin in the 250kW BMW M240i.

Call me old fashioned, but I reckon it's bullshit. There are a stack of reasons I love my 1989 Nissan Sil80. It’s manual. It’s rear-wheel drive. It’s turbocharged. The thing I love about it more than anything else, though, is when you turn the key (oh yeah, it’s got one of those too), that’s it...

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Nissan 370Z Coupe comparison

It's a good problem to have. You want to buy a new sports car, but you want more poke than either a Mazda MX-5 or Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 can offer. It can't be front-wheel drive, and your budget rules out more expensive Euros from the likes of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz...

See the full article here. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be sucked into glimpses of Keeping up with the Kardashians and Housewives of Beverly Hills while your other half has command of the television remote.
