The Porsche Cayenne Turbo has a claimed top speed of 286km/h, though you'll never get to those speeds Down Under thanks to our strict laws. However, back in Europe, AutoTopNL has taken a Cayenne Turbo to the limit, demonstrating the performance SUV's ferocious straight-line acceleration and top speed capabilities in a couple of videos on YouTube.

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 spied

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG CLA45 has been caught for the first time, a week-and-a-half after a regular CLA was spied doing laps of the Nurburgring. Sitting low and squat on low-profile rubber, the CLA45 is easily distinguished from its more pedestrian siblings thanks to a small spoiler on the boot lip, massive quad exhaust tips, a prominent rear diffuser, and vertical vents on the rear bumper.

Lotus Elise meets the girl it was named after

The Lotus Elise has been around for some 22 years, and this week the lightweight sports car reunited with the girl that inspired its name – Elisa Artioli. Her grandfather is former chairman of Lotus, Romano Artioli, who was overseeing the British sports car manufacturer when the Elise was launched in 1995. Elisa inspired the sports car's name, and was even present at the launch with the first production line-built example 22 years ago (below) which is the same car she's pictured with today.

2018 Toyota HiLux SR, SR5 facelift uncovered

The Toyota HiLux is set for a makeover, with SR and SR5 variants undergoing a design improvement as part of a recent technology change. The new front-end is limited to SR and SR5 models in 4x2 and 4x4 hi-rider guise, taking on a very similar look to the recently-announced Rogue special-edition. There are also hints of Rugged and Rugged X in the new look. While we detailed the design change last year, Toyota was non-committal about whether it would be coming to the wider Australian range.
