First 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 arrives at Holden in Australia, but there’s a catch

The first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has landed in Australia, according to a post on Holden’s official Instagram page (pictured below).

Volkswagen fined record $125 million for dieselgate in Australia

The Federal Court has fined Volkswagen a record $125 million – $50 million more than the $75 million the German car maker had agreed upon with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) – for making "false representations" about the diesel emissions of more than 57,000 cars. It is the highest penalty ever handed down by the Federal Court for breaching Australian Consumer Law.
