Lotus Elise meets the girl it was named after

The Lotus Elise has been around for some 22 years, and this week the lightweight sports car reunited with the girl that inspired its name – Elisa Artioli. Her grandfather is former chairman of Lotus, Romano Artioli, who was overseeing the British sports car manufacturer when the Elise was launched in 1995. Elisa inspired the sports car's name, and was even present at the launch with the first production line-built example 22 years ago (below) which is the same car she's pictured with today.

Brutal R34 GTR wake-up call

This sleeping beauty was captured snoozing on the job at Original Auto Garage in L.A by Doron Kaufman, Nick hogan (Hulk Hogans son) invited us to visit them while staying in L.A and one of the guys fell asleep in the shop. We decided to pull Benny & Doron's well known WAKEUP prank on him, which never gets old. Especially when dealing with worn out, tired friends at work :) - Co workers push the customer's R34 GTR into the shop

2018 Toyota HiLux SR, SR5 facelift uncovered

The Toyota HiLux is set for a makeover, with SR and SR5 variants undergoing a design improvement as part of a recent technology change. The new front-end is limited to SR and SR5 models in 4x2 and 4x4 hi-rider guise, taking on a very similar look to the recently-announced Rogue special-edition. There are also hints of Rugged and Rugged X in the new look. While we detailed the design change last year, Toyota was non-committal about whether it would be coming to the wider Australian range.

Poll: 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is a styling success

It might not have been as comprehensive as the hatchback's poll, but it appears Mercedes-Benz is onto a winner with the styling of its new A-Class sedan. Where a whopping 78 per cent of voters declared the new A-Class hatchback a winner earlier this year, fans of the sedan made up 57 per cent of the 1100 votes in our latest poll. Set to touch down in Australia during the second quarter of 2019, the A-Class sedan will make its global debut at the Paris motor show in October.
