Volkswagen I.D. R's record-breaking Pikes Peak run - onboard video

Volkswagen set a new record at the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb a whole month ago, but onboard footage of Romain Dumas' full run in the I.D. R is only just surfacing. The all-electric racer annihilated Sebastien Loeb's record up the famous Colorado course, completing it in just 7:57.148 – and apparently it could have gone faster, had the high-altitude hillclimb not been cloaked in soupy fog.

Autonomy will kill BMW M manuals

The manual gearbox might be living on a serious time overdraft in many parts of the world, but BMW’s M Division has no plans to stop offering it any time soon. When we spoke to boss Frank Van Meel at the launch of the M2 and M5 Competition earlier this week, he said we can expect to still have the option of a stick shift, even as the company moves to its new, modular fifth-generation architecture.

2019 Suzuki Jimny goes off-road - video

The Suzuki Jimny is well-known for being one of the most capable off-roaders for its size and price, and the new-generation model due in Australia during the first quarter of 2019 should be no different. While claims and marketing campaigns can tell you whatever they like, there's nothing like seeing it to believe it.
