2018 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso review

See the full article here. For exactly six years, the biggest issue I have had with exotic cars has been my son losing his mind when I can’t take him for a drive. As a father of car-obsessed boys, the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is the best thing that has ever come out of Maranello...

Eight reasons you should've gone to World Time Attack 2017

Simply, the World Time Attack Challenge (WTAC) is awesome. For the uninitiated, WTAC – formerly known as Superlap – is a fast-paced, high-action motorsport event, held at Sydney Motorsport Park every year since 2010.

2018 Kia Stinger 330Si v Holden Commodore SS-V Redline comparison
