RAM 1500 confirmed for Australia by mid-year 2018

Local distributor Ateco Automotive has confirmed a mid-year Australian launch for the 2018 Ram 1500 – that is, the outgoing model, not the 2019 range revealed in January. Due to demand in the US, that all-new offering won't be available to our market for at least another year. With the last of the current-generation 1500, Ateco is aiming straight for high-end versions of the ever-growing ute segment – think Ranger Wildtrak, Ranger Raptor, X-Class and Amarok V6.

This guy dumped expanding foam all over an old Mercedes and made something... Different

What do you do when you have an old CLK Mercedes, a huge batch of unused expanding foam, and a LOT of spare time? Well.. This Lithuanian man may have found the perfect answer! At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that was Vigo from Ghostbusters, but it turns out he is quite handy with moulding a custom designer car from a junk wreck.

Waymo takes 'Early Riders' for a spin - VIDEO

Google's Waymo autonomous driving subsidiary has shown off its new self-driving vehicles by taking members of the public out for a spin. Dubbed 'Early Rider Moments', the short clip shows the reactions of people participating in Waymo's autonomous driving trials. The Chrysler Pacifica test vehicles are completely controlled by the company's array of sensors, radars, and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, without any form of human input from the driver's seat.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GLS63 spied

A prototype believed to be the next-generation Mercedes-AMG GLS63 has been spied this week on the snowy roads of Europe, ahead of an anticipated market introduction sometime in 2019. The burly SUV test vehicle is the first time we've seen pictures of the AMG-fettled version of Mercedes-Benz's upcoming full-size SUV, complete with pumped guards, larger alloy wheels, and an early version of the company's new Panamericana front grille.

Brabham confirms BT62 name, engine note

Brabham Automotive has taken another baby step towards its return, with a brief engine-note teaser video and the reveal of its upcoming model dubbed 'BT62'. David Brabham, son of motorsport legend Sir Jack Brabham, is responsible for the nameplate's return after more than 25 years in the wilderness. “Today’s launch heralds the start of a new chapter in the story of a family synonymous with success,” Brabham Automotive said in a statement at the brand's relaunch.
