Renault Megane RS 'more a match for Golf R' - CEO

The latest Renault Megane RS to drop locally has very big shoes to fill if it's to come anywhere near the success of its much-lauded second-generation predecessor, which saw Australia ranked number three in global sales. It's clearly a crucial model for the French carmaker both globally and in Australia for more than just sales numbers, according to local Renault CEO, Andrew Moore, who spoke with CarAdvice at the Australian launch recently.

2019 BMW 8 Series convertible spied almost camouflage-free

The BMW 8 Series convertible has been spied ready for an on-stage debut in, it seems, the very near future. There's only a little bit of camouflage on the top of the rear deck, around the rear wheel arches, and covering the vents on the front wings. As is the norm for these things, BMW 8 Series convertible looks exactly like the coupe with accommodations made for its electric folding soft-top.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 'Black Series' spied

A development prototype believed to be the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series has been snapped this week, further fuelling rumours the German performance specialist is working on a new flagship model. Despite looking very much like an AMG GT R wrapped in a swirly black-and-white disguise, this prototype has one distinguishing feature – a different exhaust system with quad pipes sticking out in a Lexus-like stacked design. Normally, the GT R breathes through a large central outlet.
