Infiniti Prototype 9 revealed with parts from new Nissan Leaf

The Infiniti Prototype 9 was teased earlier this week, and has now been detailed online ahead of its full debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance later this month. The Prototype 9 mixes the look of the pre-World War II Silver Arrows race cars from Mercedes-Benz with a few Infiniti cues, such as the harp-like grille and the raised Infiniti emblem right above.

Jaguar F-Type SVR makes art with its exhaust

Jaguar has created a work of art using the F-Type SVR's exhaust in a new video. The sports car was placed onto a dyno in Jaguar's anechoic chamber in Gaydon, UK, where the exhaust was hooked up to titanium pipes that led to 28 plates covered in tiny seeds. The growl and crackle of the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine creates vibrations through the plates, to which the seeds dance about with each frequency change.

Australia average vehicle age is 10.1 years

The average age of Australia’s vehicle fleet is 10.1 years, although more than 30 per cent of vehicles on the road are fewer than five years old. Furthermore, estimates suggest that sales of used vehicles were more than triple those of new vehicles in 2016 - the latter of which are at record highs. This data comes from a new report into the industry commissioned by the Motor Trades Association of Australia (MTAA), conducted with more than 1000 automotive businesses.
