Lexus and GAZOO Racing at Nurburgring 24-Hour Race

If you haven’t heard of the Lexus LFA and drive a Toyota, then I’m going to forgive you, despite the fact that the Toyota Motor Corporation own Lexus and the LFA is the company’s first bona fide supercar...

Aston Martin at the Nurburgring 24-Hour Race

On the eve of the 2010 Nurburgring 24-Hour race, you’ll see no less than eight Aston Martins on the starting grid, including a factory entered four-door Rapide, which will be piloted by none other than the CEO of Aston Martin, Dr Ulrich Bez...

Aston Martin V12 Vantage Exclusive Track Test

Photography. Jan Glovac It’s not a long track, but that didn’t stop us flat footing the awesome Aston Martin V12 Vantage onto the straight and swapping cogs just shy of 7000rpm, before shifting down to third for the right hand turn one at Queensland’s Morgan Park Raceway. This is a seriously quick sports car with truckloads of torque for those blisteringly quick exits out of corners...

Aston Martin V12 Vantage on the way to the USA

If you’re an Aston Martin aficionado living anywhere between Alabama and Alaska, I’ve got good news. If you like the idea of a 6.0-litre V12 under the bonnet of your Vantage, then the waiting is almost over. From later this year the blisteringly quick V12 Vantage will be available to buyers throughout North and South America, for the first time since the car’s launch in 2009 at Aston Martin’s development centre at the famed Nurburgring in Germany...

The GTA Spano is a bona fide supercar, designed and built by the successful race car manufacturer GTA Motor in Valencia, Spain. This week it was spotted in Spain’s capital, Madrid where it proved city driving is no problem for this wickedly quick car. Yes, wickedly quick is right. Armed with an 8...

Aston Martin V12 Vantage - Australia’s First Track Test

  Location: Morgan Park Raceway, Queensland. CarAdvice has just completed Australia’s first track test of Aston Martin’s hard-core V12 Vantage sports car at Queensland’s Morgan Park Raceway. Heavy rain and a water-logged track are certainly not ideal conditions for an all out track test of Aston’s smallest and lightest V12 powered rear wheel-drive sports car...

Hyundai i30 CRDi beats four Mitsubishi EVO’s in Targa Tasmania

As the least powerful and most fuel efficient car in this year’s Targa Tasmania, finishing 11th in class against Mitsubishi Evolutions and V8 powered Holden Commodores, is as good as a podium finish for the drivers and crew of Hyundai’s successful Targa team this year...

Hyundai i30 CRDi Racing in Targa Tasmania

Course conditions for day one: Heavy Rain and very slippery! That’s the news I woke to at 6.00am on Wednesday morning for the official start of the 2010 Targa Tasmania, and my first time as a co-driver in a factory backed team. Reaching speeds of up to 200km/h in wet and slippery conditions on twisty, off-camber roads isn’t exactly what I was looking forward to as a first timer in one of the most demanding tarmac rallies in the world...

Hyundai i30 at Targa Tasmania CarAdvice Co-Driving

Ever tried reading pace notes while you’re being G-force pummeled in the co-driver’s seat of a rally car for five hours? It’s the toughest job in the motorsport business and absolutely not for the faint hearted or those who feel queasy while reading in the car, which I certainly do. Behind the wheel is definitely the better place to be in a hardcore rally such as Targa Tasmania...

The 2010 Nurburgring 24 Hour will be the seventh time he has entered the race, and the first time in a Subaru.

Lamborghini LP 550-2 Balboni and Porsche GT3 on Track

  At just on twenty-five grand, plus that much again on a few well-chosen performance mods for that extra ‘go’, our 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX track car is worth but a fraction of the cost of a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Balboni. You’ll need to slap down near enough to half a million big ones for your own set of keys to one of these ultra limited Lamborghini’s...

Garbage Truck to 5-Star Luxury Camper

There are conversions and then there are conversions, but this thing takes the cake, hands down. Following a garbage truck in peak hour traffic is more akin to modern day-torture; with smells atrocious enough to make you dry reach, should you be unlucky enough get caught with your windows down...
