2019 Audi SQ8 spied without disguise

The upcoming Audi SQ8 has been spied completely devoid of camouflage, ahead of a likely official reveal later this year. Spotted in Europe, this white prototype looks pretty similar to standard Q8 variants, with the exception of the quad-tipped exhaust down the back. Behind the large alloy wheels we can also see brakes wearing the Audi Sport badge – another subtle hint at this vehicle's added performance potential.

Volkswagen going after Bonneville speed record

Hot on the heels of its Pikes Peak triumph, Volkswagen has announced plans to take the BGC/C-class speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats in August. It won't be using a Golf GTI for the attempt, and forget about the Arteon. The car chosen taking on the record run is – wait for it – a Jetta. You at the back, stop laughing!

Congestion tax: Calls renewed for 'user pays' road charge

Infrastructure Australia has renewed calls for a user-pays congestion charge, taking aim at the Federal Government for its inaction over the traffic choking our major cities. The body's latest report, a follow-up to its 2016 Infrastructure Plan, says the government "signalled its support for [the user-pays] proposal" in November 2016 but "no inquiry has been forthcoming" since, and called for it to "move forward on this important opportunity for reform".
