2018 Hyundai Veloster spied undisguised

The next-generation Hyundai Veloster has been spied completely undisguised during a promotional shoot. While this latest set of photos of the new Veloster aren't the clearest, they do offer a good view of Hyundai's second-generation asymmetrically-styled hatchback. As with the original Veloster, the new model features just one long door on the driver's side. On the opposite side there are two smaller doors, with handles for the rear door hidden in the rear pillar.

2018 Audi RS4: Initial details revealed

Preliminary Australian details for the 2018 Audi RS4 have been revealed this week, ahead of the new model's launch in April next year. Expected to cost in the "mid-$150,000" bracket before on-road costs, the wagon-only RS4 will feature a higher level of specification than the previous generation, with items like the RS sports exhaust, Dynamic Ride Control (DRC), and the rear sports differential to be included as standard.

Project Panther: Modern DeTomaso impersonator unveiled

Ares Design has revealed the Project Panther, a modern take on the DeTomaso Pantera. Run by controversial ex-Lotus boss, Dany Bahar, the company was founded three years ago to create properly bespoke, coach-built cars for exacting customers. Bahar says the company has delivered more than 200 cars with unique interiors, exteriors and performance upgrades. That would be a better hit rate than Lotus enjoyed during his time in charge, then.

Jeep expects Australia to be world number two for Grand Cherokee Trackhawk sales

Jeep reckons Australia has a shot at being the world’s second-biggest market for the manic $134,900 (plus on-roads) Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, behind its native US. About 200 Australians have already put their money down, with the first 62 special edition models selling out in three weeks, before pricing was even announced. We do love our performance cars here, and V8 sales are proportionately enormous. Just ask brands as diverse as Holden and Mercedes-AMG (and not Greenpeace).

Roborace pits self-driving racer against human driver in Hong Kong

Autonomous racing series, Roborace, has put its self-driving prototype to the test against a human driver around the streets of Hong Kong. The comparison was run at the first Formula E race for the 2o17/18 season. Representing the robot revolution (or pending armageddon, depending on how you look at it) was DevBot, a bits-and-pieces prototype used to hone the software which will eventually power series entrants.
