BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo pricing and specs

The ultra-niche BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo (GT) will hit Australia in November this year, to complement the shorter 5 Series sedan and wagon range. BMW's undoubtedly slicker successor to the polarising and moderately taller 5 Series GT retains the signature higher hip point, hatchback tailgate and stretched wheelbase (3070mm) to grow rear legroom - a key to doing well in China, its main market.

Nissan recalls all new cars sold in Japan within the last three years

Nissan has recalled all its vehicles sold in Japan between October 2014 and September 2017, totalling approximately 1.21 million vehicles, and placed a temporary halt on new car sales in its homeland. According to Nissan, these cars "did not meet Japanese market requirements for final inspection" with "certain checks ... carried out by technicians not properly authorised to perform those duties under Nissan’s own processes".

2018 BMW X3: Aussie-influenced SUV here in November

The 2018 BMW X3 is a huge product for BMW globally and perhaps even more so in Australia, where SUVs play a major part in the brand's sales strategy, accounting for over 55 per cent of sales. Indeed, the new 2018 X3 is so important that BMW's global headquarters has green-lighted Australia's involvement in the global market launch, which will take place simultaneously on November 11 in Australia, Europe and the USA.

2000+HP SWITZER R35 GTR LOSES CONTROL AT 218MPH (349KPH)!

We recently posted a clip of the "Goliath" R35 GT-R racing, and beating, a 1000hp BMW M5. Even with a 400m head start, the BMW was no match for the modified Godzilla. What we didn't show is what happens next... The GT-R loses control at 218MPH! That's 349KPH for the rest of the world... Holy hell, it's lucky the driver is around with us to tell the tale... Above: GTR overtakes the 1000hp BMW M5 at around 320kph.

Lunatic Turns His Lamborghini Gallardo into a.... Ford Mustang?

When you have a Lamborghini, but Mustang is life. We still... can't get our heads around this one. One crazy guy took modifying his car to a whole new level when he seemingly woke up one morning and wanted to turn his perfectly good Lamborghini Gallardo into... a Ford Mustang. Now we have to admit, the level of workmanship that went into this build is impressive, but it still begs the question: why?! Above: Blueprints, you know, in case you want to follow in this man's footsteps.
