2018 Aston Martin Vantage pricing announced

Aston Martin has confirmed pricing for its compact Vantage sports car, set to arrive in Australia during the third quarter of 2018. With a starting price of $299,950 before on-road costs, the car will be around $18,000 more expensive than the Porsche 911 GTS. That price similarity is no accident. Speaking to media at the launch of the Vantage and DB11 Volante in Melbourne, Patrik Nilsson, Asia Pacific director for Aston Martin, didn't mince words when discussing the car's rivals.

More than 1000 people voted in this week's face-off, with 53 per cent of voters handing the Camaro-based Exorcist a narrow victory over its factory rival.

Ferrari FXX K tackles Atlanta circuit - Video

While very few people will ever get to experience the Ferrari FXX K at full tilt, we can live vicariously through those privileged enough to afford it. Fitted with an uprated version of the already-wild LaFerrari's hybrid setup, the FXX K features a 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V12 mated to an F1-inspired KERS (kinetic energy recovery system). Combined outputs are rated at 772kW and over 900Nm respectively, with drive sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

2019 Toyota Corolla detailed, Australian launch due August

2018 Mercedes-AMG G63 pricing and specs

Mercedes-AMG has announced local pricing for the new G63 will kick off at $247,000 before on-road costs when it touches down in August. Power comes from 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 making 430kW and 850Nm – up 10kW and 90Nm over the previous model respectively. It's put to the road through a nine-speed automatic transmission, which works with on-the-fly switchable low-range to deliver the legendary off-road ability for which the G-Wagen is famed.
