Volkswagen ART3on: Apprentice-built special hits 100km/h in 3.9 seconds

A team of Volkswagen Australia apprentices has made the Arteon 206TSI into a sub-4.0-second car, as a showcase for the World Time Attack Challenge at Sydney Motorsport Park. The modified five-door, dubbed ART3on, makes 360kW and 600Nm from its 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, up from 206kW and 350Nm. That extra grunt has been liberated by a raft of 'Stage 3' parts from RacingLine, including software tweaks and hardware changes like a bigger turbocharger.

Dr Yuval Steinitz, the energy minister, said the country will make "a gradual transition to electric cars and [compressed] natural gas trucks" with "an absolute ban on the import of cars with polluting fuels" starting from 2030.

2019 Skoda Rapid Spaceback teased

Skoda has released a shadowy teaser for a "future compact model", believed to be the next-generation Rapid Spaceback. The picture shows the side profile of the upcoming hatchback, which is heavily influenced by the Vision RS concept that was shown at the Paris motor show this month. While not officially confirmed as the all-new Rapid, the image is named "Spaceback_Teaser", and the extended glass tailgate on the Vision RS concept (below) is a design feature of the current Rapid Spaceback.

2020 BMW M3 spied

The next-generation BMW M3 has been spied undergoing testing at and around the Nurburgring. Unlike the photos we published in December 2017, these latest images are high resolution and give us a good look at the car's exterior from every angle. Although there's eye-distracting camouflage covering most of the body, except part of the bonnet and roof, it's clear the new M3 will have a wider front and rear track than the volume-selling 3 Series sedan.
