Now that is art: Australian muscle car prices remain in top gear

When Ford motorsport legend and Bathurst winner Allan Moffat first saw the Falcon GT sedan that would take him to victory in the early 1970s, he scoffed at the price. “No-one’s going to pay $5000 for a Ford Falcon,” Moffat would later say, recalling one of the biggest regrets of his motorsport career: not buying one of the iconic cars. Today, immaculate examples of the Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III fetch close to or in excess of $1 million.

Ford hints at electric Bronco, could pave the way for Ranger EV

An electric Ford Bronco could be on its way, with executives from the Blue Oval dropping a number of hints this month – and it means we could see an all-electric Ranger ute sooner than expected. At the company's annual Capital Markets Day presentation, Ford announced a rear-wheel-drive/all-wheel-drive electric platform for new models between now and 2030, along with a dedicated electric platform for full-size pick-ups.

Volkswagen Group rejects $11.8 billion offer for Lamborghini – report

Volkswagen Group has declined an offer of AU$11.8 billion (US$9.2B) to sell the Lamborghini brand. According to British magazine Autocar, Volkswagen Group subsidiary Audi – charged with managing Lamborghini – has shown no interest in the idea. Whispers of the supercar manufacturer's sale persisted throughout late 2020, with industry insiders suggesting Volkswagen Group was preparing to offload both Lamborghini and Ducati, before the rumours were officially put to bed in December.
