What makes Toyota's legendary 2JZ so good?

Toyota’s seemingly bulletproof 2JZ engine is perhaps the cornerstone of the legendary Supra’s appeal. While the car certainly had beautiful, timeless styling and the type of fit and finish found in cars well above its price point, the engine has always been the biggest draw...

Japan's underground exotic car scene

Tokyo Auto Salon is one show every car nut must experience, and during coverage for TAS we hung with Bez from Hardtuned along with his fellow Speedhunter Matthew Everingham and set out for an infamous local hot spot: Tatsumi car park. Being based down-under in Australia, it's very rare opportunity for us to ever see something like this beautiful Pagani Zonda...

Guy hand-makes functional miniature V10 engine

Have you ever found yourself obsessing over making a miniature version of something? Even as an adult, I never quite grew out of the remote-control-car phase, and still have a collection of RC cars, boats and helicopters that probably cost the same as a "sane person's" daily driver...

The 17-year Lamborghini Countach project

Twenty-two years ago, Ken Imhoff laid his eyes on the Lamborghini Countach in the Cannonball Run on TV. Little did he know that seventeen years later he would have his own his Lamborghini Countach. Some people are lucky enough to be able to buy their dream car. Others have to save up...

Brisbane's car scene isn't dead

We happened to tag along to a recent event known only as "Garage stars". The aim of this relatively new Brisbane based car club is to bring the car meets of old back to life with the mantra of quality over quantity. We rocked up to a beautiful sight indeed! Pics thanks to Harps Photography.

Ultra-rare Lamborghini LM002 sells for $390,000

The Lamborghini LM002 was the most outrageous, fastest, and meanest four-wheel drive on the planet between 1986 and 1992. The latest to sell, courtesy of RM Sotheby's, has a price on-par with what you'd pay for a current Urus. Using history as a guide, we were expecting the car to sell for around US$500,000 ($650,000)...

How does a turbocharger work?

We all know that turbos make cars go faster, but how exactly is this achieved? Think of your car's engine a bit like a pump. On the intake stroke the engine draws air in. This air is mixed with fuel and compressed as the piston rises, a spark ignites the mixture and forces the piston down...


How a blow-off valve works: we take a look inside one

We’ve all heard the distinctive sound of a blow-off valve, but what exactly does it do, how does it work, and how do you know which type to buy for your car? In this video we explore the basic principles of the induction system on a turbocharged or supercharged vehicle, how a Blow-Off-Valve works, and the pros and cons of fitting on to your car...

This guy dumped expanding foam all over an old Mercedes and made something... Different

What do you do when you have an old CLK Mercedes, a huge batch of unused expanding foam, and a LOT of spare time? Well.. This Lithuanian man may have found the perfect answer! At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that was Vigo from Ghostbusters, but it turns out he is quite handy with moulding a custom designer car from a junk wreck...

The world's craziest Rolls-Royce

It's not everyday you see a modified Rolls Royce, but when you do... On the front of the Rolls-Royce there has been an intercooler mounted out in front of it. If that doesn’t give you a hint as to what’s coming, just look a little further back, where the long, expansive hood has been sliced up to make room for the pipes running from said intercooler to the carburettor-fed engine...

Is this the first spy video showing the upcoming hardcore Aventador GT?

We recently came across a few photos of what appears to be the final edition of the Aventador. Now there is a video to go along with it, showing the camouflaged supercar alongside a Porsche 911. We are unsure what it will be called yet but it has been rumoured to be badged as the "Aventador GT", which makes sense considering the hardcore Diablo GT indicated the end of the Diablo platform's life cycle...

Speeding drivers' ridiculous excuse for doing 20kph over the limit

A motorist gave police a very creative excuse for speeding in Western Australia last month. When police clocked the driver travelling at 82km/h in a 60 zone in Mandurah, the driver said he was late for his dog's pedicure. "I am taking my dog to get her nails clipped and am running late," the infringement notice read...
