2020 BMW X5 M50i, X7 M50i unveiled

The range-topping BMW X5 M50i and X7 M50i were unveiled overnight, ahead of an anticipated Australian launch before the end of the year. Like the M850i xDrive, both crossovers are powered by a 4.4-litre V8 with two turbochargers located within the V. The engine is said to make 390kW of power between 5500 and 6000rpm, and 750Nm between 1800rpm and 4600rpm. All of that is channelled to the ground via an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.

2020 Audi RS3 spied at the Nurburgring

Photographers have snapped images of what is believed to be the new Audi RS3 doing rounds at the famed Nurburgring circuit in Germany. "New RS3? But that's the current one!" you may say. Well, if you look closely you'll notice some subtle fender extensions at both the front and the rear to hide the new model's wider tracks.
