2021 Land Rover Defender Hard Top revealed

From the UK comes news that Land Rover is to revive its Hard Top moniker – a name that traces its roots back to the 1950s – for use on commercial vehicle variants of the new Defender 90 and Defender 110 4x4 range. While the revived Defender has copped some criticism from purists for leaving rough and rugged origins behind, in favour of a much more modern construction and platform, the Hard Top range is set to keep things relatively simple.

Million-dollar Holden Monaro sells for $715,000

A classic Holden Monaro has sold at auction over the weekend for $715,000 – short of the expected $1 million – but the car is deemed so valuable it could be banned from being exported because it is classified as a national treasure. The 1969 Holden Monaro GTS350 V8 was the company’s first factory-funded race car. It competed in the Sandown 500 wearing the number 57 in the hands of Spencer Martin and Kevin Bartlett, but crashed and never raced again. It has since been restored.

Lamborghini SCV12 teased, track-only weapon to debut soon

Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has teased its new track-only SCV12 hypercar before a reveal expected in the coming weeks. The SCV12 will feature Lamborghini’s most powerful naturally-aspirated V12 ever. The engine produces 619kW at high speeds thanks to “aerodynamic supercharging” which sees a specially-designed, roof-mounted intake scoop create a ram-air effect, forcing air into the engine at an increased pressure.
