Drag race: Australia vs The World

Australia. It's the country where there's always an insect, animal or sea creature trying to kill you. It's also the country that once housed a thriving car industry. But, instead of crying over spilt milk, we're showing the world one last time why the constant fear of death has inspired our local engineers to build a car that's itching at the chance to chew you up and spit you out...

Could investing in a limited edition car be better than investing in property?

The 2017 HSV GTSR W1 marks the end of Australian manufacturing, along with the production of Australia's fastest and most powerful car ever built. It also represents one of the most expensive locally produced cars with an asking price of $169,990, before on-road costs. We've even heard of some buyers paying over $250,000 to secure their spot in the line...

Mercedes-AMG: Say goodbye to atmo engines, and you can forget about diesel

At this year's New York motor show, Australian media spent time with Tobias Moers, the head of Mercedes-AMG - and chief among the topics discussed was performance, specifically how best to achieve it. In recent times, petrol engines have become so efficient, so technologically adept and so clean-running, that there is hope we may one day return to the glory days of naturally-aspirated petrol engines, even if they do run an electric motor of some sort to help things along...

2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS won't be offered with V8 option - report

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS will reportedly not be offered with a V8 engine option because AMG is planning to launch its own 'four-door coupe'. According to Autocar, the CLS replacement will be powered by a range of turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines, but will do without V8 motivation. The new car's range will be topped by an AMG CLS50 variant powered by a 3...

2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland. And while some Aussies might miss having motor shows here in Oz, few will see that as enough of an excuse to splash out to attend a major international one. Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out...

BMW M4 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe track comparison

The battle of BMW’s M division against Mercedes-AMG has been raging for decades. The Bavarians have never gone for a power war with the folks from Affalterbach, preferring instead to focus on a power-to-weight ratio formula that sees them maintain the purists' status amongst the hooligan nature of old AMGs...
