- shares

Mandy Turner, Mike Stevens, and Kez Casey join you this week.

In car news, Holden has announced Dave Buttner as managing director, the 2019 Toyota Supra and BMW Z4 are getting a four-cylinder engine, and the Volkswagen Caddy Beach Camper is coming to Australia.

Also, studies have found half of new car buyers don't prioritise safety, and the majority of buyers are keen on hybrids.

We talk to Professor Stephen Robinson from RMIT University about research that has found vibrations in cars can make you sleepy.

Mandy is fresh back from the Goodwood Festival of Speed – hear her chat with automotive engineer, James Brighton, from Cranfield University who worked on the autonomous 1965 Ford Mustang. Stay tuned for a full Goodwood Special!

Todd Reed sent us an email at and was keen to hear our thoughts on why we can't drive left-hand-drive new cars on our roads.

We speak to Jez Spinks about his comparison between the 2018 BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG E63.
