Time Machine Tuesday: March 13, 2018

People often say "don't forget where you came from". Although we're focused on every new car, every last detail here at CarAdvice, we have an extensive back-catalogue of news stories, lifestyle yarns and reviews. Here's a look at what happened on March 13 over the past few years. Three years ago today the stripped-out Renault Megane RS275 Trophy R-Spec took on Melbourne's Albert Park Grand Prix circuit – becoming the first vehicle of its kind to set a lap record on the iconic street track.

Lamborghini to stick with naturally-aspirated engines, prefers hybrid to turbo

Lamborghini would rather go down the path of hybrid powertrains to maintain the emotional appeal of its engine noise, rather than following everyone else with their turbocharged V8s. Speaking to the CarAdvice at the Geneva motor show this week, Lamborghini chief technical officer, Maurizio Reggiani, admitted the company was forced to go turbo in the Urus, but said the Huracan and Aventador replacements will be naturally aspirated for as long as possible.

2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI won't have a manual gearbox in Australia

In news for traditional hot hatch enthusiasts, Volkswagen Australia will not offer a manual gearbox on the brand new Polo GTI, due in August — though it will become available overseas, should the company’s local arm change its mind. Citing a lack of market demand for three-pedal cars in our market, the company will instead offer its new entry grade pocket rocket solely with a DSG and paddles — just like the outgoing model before it received a mid-life upgrade in 2015.

10 Geneva concepts we wish made production

Now the biggest, boldest concepts from the 2018 Geneva motor show have been revealed, and space has been made in dream garages for Supras, Lagondas, and M8 Gran Coupes, we cast a nostalgic eye back on some of the most memorable concepts from the last 20 years. These are the cars we believe should have earned a place in product portfolios from their respective manufacturers. Some were simply too fanciful to ever get a look in, while others fell to the might of a beancounter’s red pen.
