2019 BMW Z4 spied with less camouflage next to Toyota Supra

The third-generation BMW Z4 has been spied alongside its platform mate, the long-awaited successor to the Toyota Supra. Compared to the last prototype, spied on the Nurburgring in May 2017, this latest car wears significantly less camouflage. Gone are most of the coverings around the head- and tail-lights, the disguise around the grille and lower air intakes, and the false body panels along the car's flanks.

Volkswagen and Hyundai exchange blows over hot hatch mastery

Incumbent hot hatch leader Volkswagen, and aggressive new kid on the block Hyundai, appear unwilling to merely let their cars do the talking, after engaging in a thoroughly entertaining sparring session over the imminent i30 N. Coinciding fittingly with the Australian Open tennis grand slam, Volkswagen Australia managing director this week used the release of the new entry Golf GTI Original variant to not-so-subtly backhand his rival from Korea. Not for the first time.
