Terry Grant sets two-wheel record at Goodwood - video

Stunt driver Terry Grant has set a new record for the fastest mile on two wheels at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The time to beat was 2 minutes 55 seconds, and Grant manages the run in just over 2 minutes 45 seconds, shaving 10 seconds from his previous best. His steed of choice was a pre-facelift Range Rover Sport SVR, packing a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 making 405kW and 680Nm, no less. Anyway, we won't bore you with anymore technical jargon. Watch Grant's record-breaking run below:

2019 Porsche Macan facelift teased

Porsche has teased the upcoming facelift to its immensely popular Macan SUV, with an image of the car undergoing high-altitude testing. First launched in 2014, the Macan follows in the footsteps of the Cayenne, wrapping elements of 'classic Porsche' in a body-style that's more amenable to the average buyer and their children, bags and associated paraphernalia. Say what you will about the 911, it's much easier to sit two kids in a five-door, high-riding body.

Poll: Hyundai Kona crushes Renault Zoe

Renault has opened the Zoe up for public sale, but its price point could prove prohibitive if our latest poll is any guide. Put head-to-head with the Hyundai Kona Electric, the little electric Renault garnered just 16 per cent of the vote. With a starting price of $47,990 before on-road costs, pushing to $49,990 before on-roads in top grade, the Zoe is priced right around where we're expecting the plug-in electric Hyundai to touch down.

Audi joins Takata airbag recall

Audi Australia has issued a recall for the previous-generation Q5, A3 and A5 as part of the ongoing and ever-growing Takata airbag campaign. The German marque reported that affected vehicles are fitted with the more serious 'alpha' airbags – rather the less-dangerous, but still potentially deadly, 'beta' inflators. First cab off the rank will be the '8R' Q5 from model years 2009-12 (9244 units), believed to be fitted with faulty driver's side airbags. This recall is active from 13 July.
