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...

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.

Ford: Raptor to boost 4x4 Ranger sales further beyond HiLux

While the Ranger still trails the Toyota Hilux in overall sales, Ford will be hoping the all-new Raptor will help it pull further ahead of its Toyota rival in 4x4 sales. Last month, Ford sold 2892 4x4 Rangers – 12 more than Toyota sold 4x4 HiLuxes – for a 23.7 per cent share of the hotly-contested segment...

Ranger Raptor: Focusing on cylinder count is "missing the point"

What would the Ranger Raptor be like with a V6? To ask that question is to miss the point – at least according to Ford. The Ranger Raptor will arrive with a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel under the bonnet, mated with a 10-speed automatic. With the boost from sequential turbos, the Raptor makes 157kW and 500Nm of torque...

2018 Skoda Kodiaq 140TDI review

As a value-for-money proposition, the Skoda Kodiaq hits the ball out of the park. But the 140TDI asks a six-grand premium that only stacks up if your lifestyle demands the extra grunt and fuel-saving benefits.

Ford: Ranger Raptor 10-speed auto "very capable"

In an attempt to meet the ambitious performance targets it set for the Ranger Raptor, Ford engineers turned to the 10-speed automatic from the full-size F-150 Raptor. The transmission, according to John Fallu, transmission and driveline engineering manager for Ford Asia Pacific, was chosen because it meets "both our refinement and performance benchmarks" for the Raptor...

Chief engineer: Ranger Raptor four-cylinder is the right choice

Ford has finally taken the wraps off its latest halo model, the first Ranger Raptor, at a packed-out event in Bangkok. The US-based automotive giant is billing the Raptor as an off-road performance pick-up, with a beefed-up chassis and 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel mated to an all-new 10-speed auto transmission...
