Mercedes-AMG C63 successor to be hybrid – Tobias Moers

While rival German carmakers have ditched sonorous V8 engines for blown six-cylinder options, at least in the small performance segment, Mercedes-AMG has stayed the course with the rear-drive C63 – at least for now. With stringent emissions requirements needing to be met by all manufacturers, as well as the fast-track to electrification, the days of AMG twin-turbo V8s seem numbered...

2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: 25,000 new parts – why does it look the same?

No one would be surprised to learn the C-Class is easily the most successful model in the entire Mercedes-Benz lineup. In Australia alone last year, it moved around 8000 units – but with the latest version of C-Class arriving on local shores in August, that number could well be exceeded this year...

2018 C-Class: Why the mid-size Mercedes-Benz misses MBUX

Mercedes-AMG has revealed its facelifted C63 S ahead of the New York motor show this week which, together with the rest of the C-Class line-up, includes a new-look grille, revised drivetrains, new electrical architecture and 25,000 new components. Despite some significant updates, there’s no cutting-edge MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience – infotainment system, despite it debuting in the new A-Class...

It doesn't seem to matter which end of the income scale you might be sitting at, the world can't get enough of SUVs – big or small. The choice between make, model and variant is as difficult as ever, even in the premium compact segment.

Aston Martin Vantage: Dynamics and NVH explained

The all-new Aston Martin Vantage shares its lightweight aluminium platform with the DB11, but 70 per cent of components are unique to the car. Aston Martin chief engineer, Matt Becker, spent 26 years at Lotus Cars, where he was responsible for some of the finest handling cars on the planet before making the leap to Gaydon...

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Key design points explained

Few would argue the design merits of the previous generation Aston Martin Vantage. Even today, 12 years on from launch, it turns heads for all the right reasons. Fast forward to 2018, and the all-new Vantage has little (if anything) in common with its predecessor...

Lamborghini: Urus will double global sales by Q4 2019

The Lamborghini Urus is a straight-up game changer. Not only is it the first-ever super sport utility vehicle, it also enters the market as the fastest SUV with an internal-combustion engine. Under its arrow-head-edged bonnet lies a mighty 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 (each of the turbos are also twin-scroll units) making 485kW of power and 850Nm of torque, sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission...

Lamborghini Urus: It's important to be the fastest and the first

More than five-and-a-half years has passed since Italy's most outrageous supercar manufacturer, Lamborghini, presented its striking SUV concept, the Urus (pronounced Ooo-rus). The production version (still called Urus) had its Australian reveal this week, and true to form, it looks almost as good as the original concept. Frankly, we'd be worried if it didn't...

2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 review

The Mercedes-AMG S63 is not only one of the world's most powerful production cars, but also one of the most luxurious – and it's brilliant at both.

Bentayga V8: Talking active anti-roll with Peter Guest

The Bentley Bentayga V8 recently launched to the motoring press might have a lightweight aluminium body, but that doesn't make it a lightweight SUV. It tips the scales at nearly 2.4-tonnes, more than a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and slightly less than a Range Rover. It's an enormous mass to manage, especially given the grunt at play from the 4...

2018 Bentley Bentayga V8 review

It's not quite as rapid as the reactor-powered W12, but the Bentley Bentayga V8 is the more engaging drive with an intoxicating burble to boot.

Bentley Bentayga V8 brakes are largest, most powerful on a series production car

The standard brakes on the Bentley Bentayga V8 aren't what you'd call 'small'. The steel rotors  measure 400mm up front, gripped by six-piston calipers from Brembo. According to Bentley Bentayga product line director, Peter Guest, the package was approved after an exhaustive development process...

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 review

It might not have an S badge on the boot lid, but rest assured the Mercedes-AMG E63 is still a monster-powered four-door sedan capable of mixing it up with genuine supercars. It can also carry your family in sublime luxury.
