Lexus LFA: Mystery prototype spied at the Nurburgring

A mystery development vehicle based on the Lexus LFA supercar has been spied at the Nurburgring, raising questions as to what the company is working on. This particular LFA appears to be equipped with the Nurburgring pack – which added a more aggressive aero package including a larger front splitter and side skirts along with a fixed rear wing – though the camouflage on the front and rear guards indicates there could be something else going on underneath the skin.

Isuzu Ute Australia turns 10

Isuzu Ute has clocked up 10 years in Australia, a decade in which it has gone from minnow to perennial over-achiever. In fact, we’re now the Thai-based company’s biggest export market. It launched as a sales company in October 2008 after years of supplying Holden with Jackaroos and Rodeos. Sales ramped up, with double-digit growth achieved for nine consecutive years before ‘slowing’ to 8.8 per cent this year.

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.
