Kia Stinger GT a sellout success in Australia, police interest a huge help

Every single Kia Stinger GT that arrives is immediately sold, giving the company the best kind of problem with its performance halo -- supply. The company has sold about 2000 units in around a year since the big rear-drive liftback sedan arrived, and it has clearly changed how people see its brand. A bonafide muscle car is worth its weight in gold, meaning the 272kW twin turbocharged V6 GT version is the one doing the heavy lifting, compared to the more modest turbo-four.

BMW 8 Series: 'The time is right to re-enter this segment'

With the covers taken off at the 2018 Paris motor show, and the new BMW 8 Series sitting resplendent among the raft of new product on the BMW stand, you could be forgiven for asking: what took so long? Indeed, with the long-lasting affection for the '90s 840i and 850i, it does seem like BMW has taken its time returning to a segment that so characterised its previous success.
