As you might be aware, 2021 marks the year CarAdvice and Drive become one – bringing together both sites' top-shelf automotive content under the one banner.

For you, dear reader, not much will change. We're still the same team, with the same familiar faces and high standards for our new-car content and love of all things automotive.

The only difference is you'll eventually be able to meet all your new-car needs in one place, Drive.

Until then, however, we want to make sure that while you're glued to CarAdvice, you don't miss out on the original content we're producing on Drive.

To keep you informed, we'll be rounding up our five favourite Drive stories of the week each week. Behold, the 'Drive Five'...


1. 1955 Jaguar D-Type once owned by Bernie Ecclestone tipped to sell for $7.5 million

It's a rare kind of person who can afford to drop millions of dollars on a car that's likely to spend the majority of its time sitting in a garage because it's far too precious to drive.

Thus, the pool of buyers for a 1955 Jaguar D-Type currently up for auction in Arizona is likely to be small given the expected sale price is likely to be north of US$7.5 million (AU$9.7 million).

Once owned by former Formula One chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, the red stunner is said to be one of three of its kind in the world. Head here to see photos and read more details.


2. This is the most common form of road rage in Australia, study finds

Anyone who spends a solid amount of time on the road will have experienced some kind of aggression from other drivers – and some of us might even be guilty of inflicting aggression on others.

According to new research from Finder.com.au, a whopping 73 per cent of Aussies have experienced road rage in some form, but one specific kind of aggression is more common than any other on the nation's roads.

3. 2021 Toyota LandCruiser Prado gets extra bling

Australians might love a Prado for its off-road credentials, but overseas, Toyota has released a body kit that's better suited to cruising down a high-end shopping street than bush-bashing.

The Japan-only offering, which is called the Modellista Aero Kit, lowers the Prado's ground clearance and adds some extra bling to the family hauler.

Motorcycle lovers, avert your eyes now.

The Top Mountain Crosspoint museum in Hochgurgl, Austria – known for being the world's highest altitude museum at 2175m – now lies in ruins after a fire swept through it, wreaking havoc on the museum's collection of vintage treasures.
