Electric Hummer teased by General Motors

Side profile images of the upcoming reborn Hummer have been revealed by General Motors in the US overnight. And before anyone is wondering why GM is reviving a brand that symbolised gas guzzlers and excess, it's worth noting these will be fully electric vehicles. In a video posted to the GMC website, the silhouettes of a twin cab pick-up and an SUV wagon can be seen. A clay sculpting of the car, and a body shell, are also shown at various points during the video.

Toyota patent application points to low emissions multi-channel injection diesel

A patent application released in the US points to a potential new engine development by Toyota, leading to a raft of speculation from American publications. The application, uncovered TheFastLaneTruck.com, was initially filed in December 2019. However, with reports Toyota will drop its V8 range, which powers a selection of SUVs and pick-ups in the US, the timing points to an engine that might fit those applications.

Electric BMW 3 Series spied in testing

A fully-electric BMW 3 Series has been spied testing in Europe, with the model expected to join the electrified 4 Series from 2021. Curiously, the camouflaged test vehicle uses the long-wheel-base (LWB) body. The stretched version has only been available in China up until recently, with a right-hand-drive LWB 3 Series being announced for India in June 2020 to replace the axed 3 Series GT. What remains a mystery at this stage is what the new electric 3 Series will be named.

The 2021 Holden Colorado we were supposed to get

The 2021 Holden Colorado ute won't be coming to Australian showrooms next year because the brand will be retired by the end of 2020, but here's how it was going to look. What was Holden's biggest-selling car since it ended Australian manufacturing in October 2017 has been discontinued locally, but will live on in left-hand-drive markets in South America.

Barn-find Ford Falcon XA GT RPO 83 ‘Chicken Coupe’ sells for record $300,909

An anonymous car collector from South Australia has paid $300,909 for an old, run-down 1973 Ford Falcon XA GT RPO 83 that had been left to rot in a chicken coop in rural Queensland for the past 32 years. The barn find – dubbed the “Chicken Coupe” because of where it had been stored for most of its life – was sold in a Graysonline auction on Wednesday night.
