2018 Mercedes-AMG 'GT' sedan spied

The Mercedes-AMG 'GT' four-door sedan has been spied undergoing testing public roads. Mercedes-Benz has hidden many of the car's styling features underneath a full-body camouflage, as well as false panels for the front and rear fascias, and a hump on the rear deck. Despite these tricks, though, it's clear that the new four-door will look a lot like the AMG GT Concept sedan unveiled at this year's Geneva motor show...

On the smaller end of the scale, the likes of the Porsche Macan GTS and Mercedes-AMG GLC43 go head-to-head for dominance in the all-important performance SUV war of the Germans...

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...
