- shares

This week, Mandy and Mike Costello are joined by George Skoufis, the Melbourne winner of our Be on the podcast panel competition.

It's been a big week in car news, including the 2017 Holden Commodore pricing and specs, Toyota confirming October 3 end for Australian production, Volkswagen topping the 2016 global sales chart, and reports of new Nissan Z car and Toyota Supra concepts for a Tokyo show unveiling.

Also, Dave joined us to talk about the newly revealed 2017 HSV range, including... the return of the GTSR!

Mike compares the Ford Focus RS and BMW M140i, and we talk to the CEO of ANCAP, James Goodwin, about his thoughts on the Ford Mustang's 2-star safety rating.

It's a special "looks like" reader comments of the week segment, and we have a winner for Pick the Exhaust - the answer may surprise you!
