Mercedes-AMG G63 Exclusive Edition: Australian order books open

The Mercedes-AMG G63 and G65 Exclusive Edition have been revealed this week ahead of their public debut at the Frankfurt motor show. If the old-school G-Wagen wasn't already exclusive enough, the high-performance twin-turbo AMG G63 and G65 variants have been given an array of exterior and interior appointments to stand out from their more 'regular' counterparts, including an exclusive 'AMG monza grey magno' matte exterior paint finish.

Mercedes-Benz EQ A concept previewed

Mercedes-Benz has handed down a first shadowy preview of its coming Concept EQ A, to be revealed at this month's Frankfurt motor show. The second concept in its new line of EQ-branded electric concepts - or third, if the new Smart Vision EQ concept counts - Merc's new EQ A is expected to preview a small next-generation hatch. To now, Mercedes-Benz has so far revealed not only the Smart Vision EQ, but also the larger GLC-looking Generation EQ concept at last year's Paris motor show.

NSW '4' historic number plates sell for record $2.45m

The New South Wales vintage registration plate '4' sold for a record $2.45 million at the Shannons Winter Classic Auction in Sydney on Monday night. The winning bid came in at $1 million over the estimated price guide - and a good deal more than the most recent records of $750,000 each for NSW plates 29 and 36. The bidding war was between two punters, one simply named 'Ray', and the other was adult toy billionaire, Peter Tsung, with Tsung coming away with the ultra-rare plates.

Designer reimagines BMW's Isetta as the cute bubble car of the future

The BMW Isetta of the 1950s is one of the quirkiest models to come from the Bavarian manufacturer in its 100-year history, and now one independent designer has reimagined the original 'bubble car' for the 21st century. Created by Justin Hyunjung Cho as a ride-sharing solution of the future, the modern-day Isetta mixes the super-compact concept of the original with various design elements of modern BMW models and autonomous driving technology.
